5 Years Of Generation Clash

On March 27, 2019, I created Generation Clash. This happened because I asked myself how I could use my knowledge of music because I know a lot but I wasn't sure what I could do with that knowledge. Then I had an idea where I could write about the music I love. I've always felt that there's a lot of music I listen to that I don't see other people talking about. I'm not talking about a few artists, a lot of what I listen to I never see other people talking about.

Retronaut Selects: Rock City Angels - Young Man's Blues (The Original Jim Dickinson Mix) (2024)

I discovered Rock City Angels at Double Decker Records. I found their album Young Man's Blues on vinyl. It's a gold stamp promo. It's the single LP American pressing. I recently learned that there was an 2 LP version of the album that was released in Europe and it had more songs than the American edition. I learned about this after I noticed that there were songs on the Jim Dickinson mix album that weren't on the version I have of Young Man's Blues.

Interview: Trevor Card

1: What inspires you to create?There is a fire that burns inside me. Real life struggles and memories and moments, whether good or bad or in between. I just love and appreciate the fact that I’ve been given a gift from god and it allows me to connect and communicate with souls from every walk of life. I love making people feel something inside. I love telling a story. The desire to be heard inspires me.2: What advice would you give to someone who wants to be in a creative profession?Be prepared to grind. Believe in yourself at all times. Don’t let outsiders grind you down. And give 'em hell at all times. And stay ready because you never know when your moment may come.3: Do you feel open minded about what you listen to? Do you like going out of your comfort zone?I am very open minded.. to good, real music that comes from the soul. I love all music as long as it’s real. I do like stepping out of the comfort zone. It’s an opportunity for growth.4: What outlets do you find out about music from? (Record stores, magazines, samplers, etc.)You gotta really dig to find some good new shit. I find a lot of music through Spotify and Instagram, honestly. The radio doesn’t offer too much these days.5: What is your favorite format to listen to music on? (CD, Vinyl, etc.)Vinyl baby. There’s nothin' like Appetite for Destruction played on 10 on classic vinyl.6: How do you feel the internet has impacted the music business?It’s a blessing and a curse. Everything is so accessible but you’ve got to really find a way to stand apart from the crowd these days. I don’t mind the internet, it’s easier to quickly find new music if you know where to look.7: Who was the first band/artist that became your favorite band?Guns N' Roses.8: What qualities do you think make a good musician?The ability to play what’s needed for the song. Not overplaying. Soul. Ability to adapt and play with others. Confidence. Knowing to when to really rip and when to lay back. A good fuckin' ear. Willing to really take time for your craft.9: Do you have any hobbies outside of music?I love playin Texas Hold Em poker. I love golf. I love to fish too. Being with my boys too, just getting into shit and raisin' a little hell is always fun.10: What was the inspiration for your song “Only Want U 4 U”?An old flame. Wanting someone for who they are and nothing else. Not for their money or car. Just the real person.
