MP3:The Corn Puppies “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit 2”

Early this week we posted Racist Joe’s lost hit “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit” in lieu of a 7 inch of the song that will be handed out at the Daymon Day Parade tonight.
Well, “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit” has already spawn a cover version.
The Corn Puppies are a new group consisting of Ben Branstetter, John Hughes, Rustin and Jake Winston. They haven’t played a show yet, but Daymon was always nice to dudes when they were young so they felt compelled to do this cover. It’s really good. And it’s funny to hear the lyrics sung in Rock N Roll form.

Nick Tolford & Co, Envelope & Detox, Freaky Franz & Cornelius Jackson, DJ Johnny Cashola, DJ True Skills are performing at Skully’s Tonight for Daymon Day Eve.

I didn’t get to use quotes from everyone I talked to..

So after the jump, Mike O of Nick Tolford & Co, Johnny Cashola, Envelope and Freaky Franz all speak on their experiences with Daymon Dodson, and the Daymon Day Parade.

Michael Carney Featured In New York Times Article About “the Incredible Shrinking Album Cover”

Readers of DW are no stranger to the Black Keys art director Michael Carney.
The New York Times caught up with one of sites’ favorite Grammy Winners, and discussed the affects of Smart Phones, and I-Tunes on album cover design in a declining market.

Except from New York Times Feature The Incredible, Inevitable Shrinking Album Cover

WHEN the album designer Michael Carney submitted his proposed cover for the Black Keys’ album “Brothers” last year, he and the band were a little anxious. Seeking a change from their previous, illustration-driven packaging, which he’d also designed, Mr. Carney devised the simplest of covers: two sentences — “This is an album by the Black Keys. The name of this album is Brothers” — set against a black background

“We thought, ‘Are we allowed to do this?’ ” Mr. Carney recalled of the bare-bones cover, which he also felt reflected a new boldness in the Black Keys’ music. Although its label, Nonesuch, was initially perplexed, Mr. Carney’s fears were ultimately put to rest. “The marketing people said, ‘This is our dream!’ ” Mr. Carney said, and the artwork was a go.

Michael Carney will return to Columbus for the DAYMON DAY PARADE.
Mike will dejay the parade’s afterparty along with Sinkane of Yeasayer at Carabar September 17th, here in Columbus, Ohio.

What’s Really Good Columbus?!

Obviously the big story today is the OSU football game. Throw your rah-rag up.
Well, after the bucks win, whether you head to a parade, a festival, a BW3 or take a nap, try to come out to the Daymon Day Parade Afterparty.
Columbus legends The Fonosluts and DJ True Skillz will team up with Get Right Columbus, CJ Townsend and Iyeball of Fly Union to do it like they use to do , and continue to.
New School x Old type jump-off.
CJ and Iyeball will be coming returning from New York tonight where Iyeball’s rap group Fly Union and CJ just performed at Santo’s Party House for a BET Music Matters Showcase.
Daymon was a mentor for Fly Union, obviously a member of the Fonosluts, and he was also in BSA along with the Get Right Columbus fam.
Daymon would be proud of both Get Right, Fly U’s success, and be stoked to see Hip Hop culture in Columbus flourishing.(this is just the tip of the iceberg.)
So it should be fun.

Daymon Day 2009 Photos & Videos

A few weeks ago we celebrated the 4th annual Daymon Day here in Columbus. We had a basketball tourney, tribute mural, emcee battle, parade and a rowdy dance party. We got our Rucker park on and then brought it into the streets.

For those that aren’t familar with Daymon Day but like things perhaps reading this article before or after viewing the following videos and pictures might give you some background info.

YouTube Preview Image

This video shot by A.J.(i think) shows the parade.

Watch it if you think marching 300 plus people in the middle of the road to Black Sabbath, Dilla, Cam’ron, M.O.P. , DJ Przm, Camu Tao, Jim Jones,Pharoah Monche and Racist Joe instrumentals to honor their fallen loved ones on an OSU gameday sounds interesting.
