Who's Yer Daddy?
BY KELTON COFER
Cigarette smoke and idle chat
ter fills the air as they take the stage.
Two quick swipes across the
guitarist's Stratocaster lets the au
dience know it's time. Four pimp
suit clad young men open with a
blistering cover of Stevie Ray
Vaughn's "Couldn't Stand the
Weather." Look out!
It's Daddy Catfish and they're
on fire. Their fans/supporters flood
in to hear a combination of blues,
funk, jazz and soul.
Jimmy Moody (guitar and lead
vocals), Pete Sangimino (bass and
backup vocals), Chris Strange (pi
The Root Beer Diaries
BY CATIE BRALY
On behalf of the rest of the
free world, I would like to wel
come you to "Catie's bitching cor
ner." This will be a corner of my
mind that will pop out every so
often when I feel as though I am
to bitch about. So, here goes...
Ok, as I said last week, I went
to see the band, Luna. And, un
fortunately, what usually accom
panies going to shows is a long
night of driving around, very little
sleep, and what sleep you do get
is fitful and unsatisfying.
So, upon my return to this
lovely campus, I headed directly
for my bed, which at this point
was the haven that the gods had
been whispering to me about in
my exhausted hallucinations.
Once I made my way to my room,
I fell into one of the best six-hour
naps I had had in a long time. I
woke up at 11:45pm, and of
course, couldn't fall back to sleep.
So, I then proceeded to do all of
ano and vocals) and Rich Schiller
(drums) are making waves through
out North Carolina.
They have been playing as
Daddy Catfish for a year and a half.
"Eighteen months of jumping
through the hoops," says Moody,
the band's P.R. man.
Jimmy has played violin and
viola since the 4th grade. Pete
played saxophone before taking up
bass. Chris played trombone for the
Wake Forest University jazz en
semble. Rich learned drums from a
friend and actually played tuba in
his high school marching band.
With these types of musical
backgrounds, Daddy Catfish puts
on a show that blows the roof off.
my homework...well, actually I just
watched a lot of movies. About
I:3oam, I recieved a phone call.
"Is this a Catherine Bailey?"
said the voice on the other end.
"Catie Braly, and yes, this is
me," I responded, with butterflies
rising in my stomach.
"Are you the owner of a tan
BMW?" said the voice.
"Yes, WHY??" I said, my stom
ach dropping down into my shoes.
"Well, ma'am, it appears your
rear passenger window has been
smashed," he said.
Their set list ranges from a funky
"Good Times, Bad Times" to the
Charlie Brown theme "Linus and
Lucy" to "Possession" by Sarah
Daddy Catfish aren't bound to
just covers, though-their original
material is also worth its weight in
gold. With songs like "772," "Re
gret," "Time to Go" and their 70s
funked out instrumental "Kill
Whitey," they show off their song
writing ability as well as their mu
With a booking list a mile long,
you're bound to start hearing more
from Daddy Catfish. They'll be at
the Lighthouse Tavern at Elon Col
lege Saturday the 20th and at the
Blind Tiger October 9th. Talk a
friend into driving you and enjoy
"WHAT?!?" I screamed. I
quickly dropped the phone, and
flew down to the Milner parking
lot, where, sure enough, there were
three security guards waiting, all
staring into the backseat of my car,
which was now painted with shards
of glass. I stared in disbelief, an i
then checked everything in the car.
Nothing was missing. My first re
action was "thank God it was only
the window." My second reaction
was "Why the hell would someone
be so inconsiderate and stupid as
to smash my window?!?"
Ok, time to listen to a few
words of wisdom for the week.
Your mama doesn't live here. You
must have respect for other people
and also their property. That
means DON'T SMASH PEOPLE'S
CAR WINDOWS!!!!! Because some
one out there decided that they
think it would be fun to smash
someone's car window, I had to
shell out over a hundred dollars,
because no, it was not covered by
Senseless vandalism is, well,
umm, senseless. Stop it now.
