Danny Kroha is a Detroit native who has played raw and primitive rock n roll music for about thirty years. Danny Kroha has so far played with The Gories, Rocket 455, Demolition Doll Rods, The Readies, and The Darleans. Danny Kroha is alive and well and continues to make records.

Danny and Third Man Records on his new album, Angels Watching Over Me:

“I was very reluctant to put this stuff out because there’s a ton of rootsy cornballs out there doing this kind of stuff and all of them play guitar way better than me. But I think I have something here that doesn’t really sound like anything else. The numbers that bounce really bounce. The numbers that drone really drone. I’m excited about this.” – Danny Kroha

We are too! The founding member of THE GORIES tried his hand at the banjo, dulcimer, diddley bow, washtub bass, jug, and mouth organ for his first release under his own name, Angels Watching Over Me, and the result is a distinct step forward for gospel and folk as genres. Kroha has consistently pushed himself to reinvention, and has influenced countless imitators and poseurs along the way. His guitar work with Rocket 455 is the most quintessentially “Detroit” rock and roll this side of the MC5. Angels Watching Over Me was recorded in a 100-year-old, vacant house in Detroit, and features songs popularized by the likes of Son House, I.D. Stamper, Blind Lemon Jefferson, and Brother Will Hairston. This is a decidedly different Danny Kroha than we’ve seen in his past projects with Demolition Doll Rods and Danny and the Darleans, and we have to say… we like him. With Angels Watching Over Me, he firmly establishes himself as one of the pre-eminent practitioners of a genre we hold so dear.

The record will be available for pre-order mid-January with an official release date of January 27th. Check out a sneak peak of the song “Run Little Children,” the only Kroha original on the record, below.

“I was sitting by a pond in a park in Rochester, New York, playing my diddley bow, and this one came to me. Son House lived in that town for some years; I like to think he was smiling on me.” – Danny Kroha

True Detective S02E06 and Phantom of the Paradise at Fond Object 7/26/2015

Ok, people. I think it might be time for some real talk. Remember watching True Detective last season? Remember how totally creeped out you were by it, and yet still totally enthralled and dying to know what was gonna happen next? Ok, by a show of hands, who feels that way about this season? Yeah…that is what I thought. Don’t worry, we still have hope that it might get better, so we will soldier on, for now….

Now that the nasty part of this description is over, this week Fond Object brings you….PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE!! This movie is pretty great, so if you haven’t seen it, you really need to come out on Sunday and check it out!

Phantom of the Paradise is a 1974 American musical film horror film written and directed by Brian De Palma, and starring Paul Williams, William Finley and Jessica Harper. In the film, a disfigured composer writes his music for a woman he loves so that she will perform his music. However, a record producer betrays him and steals his music to open his rock palace, The Paradise. Betrayed, the composer dons a new appearance and exacts revenge on the producer.

The story is a loosely adapted mixture of several classic European works: Gaston Leroux’s novel The Phantom of the Opera, Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, and Faust by Goethe/Christopher Marlowe.

Trust me, this is not one you wanna miss!
