WHEN THE WORLD RUNS FAST asks the question: What is success?

You've heard the stories of rockbands making it big while giving up family and friends along the way; is that the only path to the top?

But because Mother Fool's holds fewer than 100 people, owners Jon Hain and Stephanie Rearick decided to form their own record label, compile many of the coffeehouse's finest moments and release for...

The Vision and a Friend

Honor Among Thieves

Recorded over 3 days at Smart Studios, this album, quite simply, rocks. For rockin blues, it does not get any better than this.

The Blue God

Honor Among Thieves

Honor Among Thieves guitarist Andy Ewen and cartoonist P.S. Mueller wrote a bunch of songs. Honor Among Thieves, liked them. So Andy, along with bassist Doug DeRosa, drummer Joey B.

This Theater Was Razed

Elizabeth Schaefer

In A Heartbeat

Bob Westfall

Newesterner Music

Second CD by the talented acoustic folk singer-songwriter Bob Westfall.

Honor Among Thieves

Honor Among Thieves is one of Madison Wisconsin's hottest bands. They play their own style of pumped up psycho-roots rock that has been compared to Tom Waits on cocaine. Perhaps more like the bastard love child of Captain Beefheart and Muddy Waters, hopped up on ether and hanging with Hunter Thompson....
