Fujiyama Mama

With that in mind, Salon.com composed a badass mixtape of nuclear anhilation-themed tunes to boogie down to as it all goes up in flames. Is it any wonder that Oklahoma rocker Wanda Jackson made the cut? With her 1957 hit “Fujiyama Mama,” she does her finest impression of a nuclear bomb — not a stretch

Search and destroy

Life on the road isn’t glamorous, but it’s what Todd Jackson and Levi Watson — the two heads behind Oklahoma City hard rock outfit Brother Gruesome — crave and work for. The duo has made a point to steadily tour outside state borders since forming in 2009, ditching creature comforts in favor of the humblest

ADDverse Effects, a new collective based out of Norman, offers something fresh to the growing hip-hop scene in Oklahoma. Drummer Boyd Littel came up with the idea after a last-second gig he played with vocalist Joshua “Fiji” Rehanek and a couple other musicians. With that show’s success, he recruited the current lineup, and the band
