The Planet in the Herald Dispatch!

Dave Lavender: Plenty of local rock happening live and on the airwaves

For those about to rock and for those who've just rocked on national radio we salute you.

OK, first to the latter.

A nationwide Stone Machine

Got to give some major props to the nationally syndicated radio show Lex and Terry for last Friday serving up some southern-fried rock goodness straight out of Kenova rock city.

Stone Machine is an all-star band put together by veteran Kenova native guitarist and songwriter, Dirk Blevins (formerly of Ten Years Gone), featuring Blevins' Les Paul-crunched classic rock riffs melted down by Split Nixon's killer lead vocalist Jason Mays and a host of other local top-shelf musicians including Scott Ross of Split Nixon, Ten Carp Lie's guitarist Matt Parkins and drummers, Jeremy Hall and Rodney Crisp.

Lex and Terry toss in a different regional band's CD every week during their "Music Meeting," and usually blow rocket-launcher-sized laughs into the tunes. They got thrown for a loop when they put on Stone Machine's "Dirty Sweet," and got their ears blown back comparing May's melodic power growl to Sammy Hagar.

"I want to make fun of it so bad but I really really like it," Lex said. " ... This genre is ice cold right now but this is good. If I was hanging out somewhere I could listen to this all night."

Not only did the boys get part of three cuts played on the national radio show, but Gary Kesling, owner of the Ashland-based studio 2 Cats Studios and 9 Lives Records, which put out the CD, came on the show and gave Lex and Terry more info about one of the region's coolest and mostly-studio-based supergroups.

Following the appearance on Lex and Terry, which is heard locally on 92.7-FM and 98.5-FM, The Planet, Blevins stopped by The Planet studios Friday to chat it up with Reeves "Reevis" Kirtner.

Lucky for the rest of us, Stone Machine ain't done recording yet, as Blevins had just popped me over three new songs, "Use You Up," "Slow Down" and "Cornbread," that the band recorded, and of course, Mays and the Split Nixon boys are about to make some more noise come 2011.

In the meantime, you can go on iTunes and get the CD, or drop in at Click onto store and get the CD for $12.99.

“Somebody is going to eat my _____ or I’m going to cut your ___-ing throat.”


Woman Utters Line Never Previously Recorded In A Police Report

Meet Melissa Lee Williams. The West Virginia woman, 41, is facing assault and weapons charges after allegedly waving a knife at two men who declined her demands to engage in sexual conduct at a West Virginia motor inn.

The October 22 incident is detailed in an amusing/gross Jackson County Sheriff’s Department report excerpted here.

According to investigators, Williams--who lives four doors down from her estranged husband at the 77 Motor Inn--showed up at his door and asked Danny Williams and another man to “eat my pussy.” At this point, Williams, pictured in the mug shot at right, “commenced to undress herself,” reported Deputy Ross Mellinger.

While Danny Williams “declined said invitation,” the other man, Adam Watson, told cops that he “agreed to perform at her request.” However, as Watson approached Williams, “he became overwhelmed by horrible vaginal odor emitting from Melissa Williams.” Watson, understandably, “declined to proceed any further.”

This is when Melissa Williams allegedly “produced a lock-back folding knife,” opened it, and pointed the weapon at her estranged husband. She then reportedly uttered a line never before memorialized in a police report: “Somebody is going to eat my pussy or I’m going to cut your fucking throat.”

When Deputy Mellinger arrived on the scene he observed Williams--who, like the two men, appeared to be intoxicated--nude from the waist down. After pocketing a knife that was on the coffee table in front of Williams, Mellinger arrested her for domestic assault and brandishing a deadly weapon.

Williams, who was released from jail after posting $3000 bond, is next due in Jackson County Magistrate Court on February 16.
