We have provided the CMA with all the necessary information and we believe we are in a very strong place.”Neither the RFGC nor the CMA were able to provide more information about the nature of the dispute with British Sugar.last_img read more

  • Watch Butch Trucks Jam “Possum” With Phish In 1995

    first_imgToday has been a difficult day for music fans everywhere, as Butch Trucks, the legendary founding drummer of the Allman Brothers Band, passed away at the age of 69. Trucks has been an active musician for 50-plus years, helping to start the Allmans in 1969 and remaining a vital part of its lineup and tradition until his death.One of the most fun crossover moments for fans of the jam scene came in 1995, when Phish visited Trucks’ hometown of West Palm Beach in Florida. Phish was really making a name for themselves around this time, and they’d garnered a strong reputation within the musician community.When the band arrived at the West Palm Beach Auditorium, they invited Mr. Trucks up on stage at the end of the second set, entreating him to keep down the rhythm for their bluesy number, “Possum.” Fortunately, video of this sit-in exists, and we can watch it below courtesy of ikoiko95 on YouTube.This sit in would kick off a long, albeit sporadic, relationship between Phish and the Allman Brothers. Trucks would again sit in with Phish in 1996, and members of Phish have sat in with the Allmans over the years. You can watch a rendition of “Franklin’s Tower,” played by the Allman Brothers with Trey Anastasio, here.RIP Butch.last_img read more

  • Pimps Of Joytime Team With Ivan Neville & Pete Shand For Funky New Single [Premiere]

    first_imgBrooklyn, NY based funk & soul outfit Pimps of Joytime are set to release a new studio album, Third Wall Chronicles, on March 24th. The new release comes at a pivotal time, employing a positive message of peace, love, and music on every track. It’s an intoxicating dance party from cover to cover, truly indicative of the band’s energetic style.The album has some hard hitters throughout, including collaborations from artists like Anthony Cole and Ivan Neville. Band leader Brian Jay even teamed with Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin to help produce the album, though he’s no stranger to the studio himself. He’s produced albums for a “who’s who” of New Orleans heavyweights, including such stars as Cyril Neville (The Neville Brothers), James Andrews, Bernard “Pretty” Purdie (The World’s Most Recorded Drummer), and Corey Henry (Galactic). He’s shared the stage with Art Neville, George Porter and Zigaboo Modeliste (The Meters), Eddie Bo, and he’s currently working on an album with GRAMMY Award-nominated blues artist Cedric Burnside (grandson of legendary blues musician R.L. Burnside)!“Brian Jay is a bit of a genius,” says Steve Berlin. “It was a blast just coming in and making a few things larger and more colorful. He has the remarkable ability to get an idea, get a sound and make it real at a speed that I’ve never seen before.”To get the party started, we’re excited to host the first track premiere from Third Wall Chronicles. Titled “Mud,” the song was written in response to the shocking election results, and features work from New Orleans royalty, Ivan Neville. “This track began because I wanted a vibey grimey funk track,” said Brian Jay. “Then I just sang some shit that was on my mind in the midst of these twisted times. Somehow it morphed into a song and I hit up Pete Shand and Ivan Neville to put their badass stamp on it.”Listen to “Mud,” streaming below.Pimps of Joytime will headline venerable West Coast venues in February and March 2017 with MarchFourth before heading to the East Coast for their album release event at The Bowery Ballroom on March 25, 2017.

Kris Snibbe/Harvard Staff Photographer Shivangi Parmar ’17 thinks life in newly renovated Dunster House is “fantastic.”The plethora of common rooms, lounging areas, the student grill, and conference rooms “collectively provide students with opportunities to interact with their friends while offering them plenty of spaces to work privately,” she said. “Not to mention the renovation is absolutely beautiful and new visitors to the House are always pleasantly surprised!”Dunster House is the first House to be completely renewed, informed by test projects that transformed Stone Hall at Quincy House and McKinlock Hall at Leverett House. With wonderful discoveries at every turn — a merger of the modern and the historical — perhaps the greatest revelation found beneath the surface in Dunster House is the commitment to sustainability coupled with community-minded design.After living in the updated Dunster for a semester, students continue to be delighted by its offerings. “I feel so incredibly lucky to be in Dunster for the next few years,” said Spencer Kiehm ’18. “Whether I want to spend some time exercising in the weight room, studying with my friends in one of the common spaces, or hanging out and playing pool, there is always a beautiful space in the new house to do whatever I want.”“I’m grateful for the tremendous job that the project managers have done and look forward to seeing their upcoming makeover of Winthrop House,” echoed Kevin Chen ’17. 11A Dunster House roof shield with bird motifs glows gold in the sunset.

  • Identifying your brand culture

    first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Brand culture is the culture that a company cultivates in order to powerfully, consistently and competitively deliver its brand to market. It’s how people work together to bring the brand alive for customers. But brand cultures are more than an expression of the brand itself; they are, by necessity, an expression of the people who work for that brand and the decisions and ways of working and behaving that they agree to work within.The challenge for any brand is when what it stands for as a brand no longer aligns with what the people working for the brand do. It’s all very well to talk about building or changing a powerful brand culture, but first you need to understand the culture you’re changing. Each is different because each revolves around a different ethos. In this, the first of a two part series, I look at what defines, and what it takes to shift, a brand culture today.It’s tempting to believe that culture is a formula. You derive a purpose, apply goals, set values, agree on behaviors and then inculcate these ideas (with varying degrees of success) over the next 12 – 18 months. While every brand culture should indeed be driven by these elements, the type of culture your brand functions within is its own human dynamic. Shifting that to something new is very difficult, essentially because you are going against the very nature of ‘how things get done around here’. Success is much more likely if you are able to recognize the predominant nature of the brand culture you are working with, and to leverage that to the brand’s advantage. continue reading »last_img read more
