M. Lockwood Porter – dont ask him what the M stands for, I did, and it didn’t end well for me – hails from the lovely city of Berkeley, California. I was there once, and may have inadvertently joined the Black Panthers, but I digress. Mr. Porter just recently released a split single “Chris Bell/Secrets,” the former song being about the late great Big Star member. His 2013 release Judah’s Gone is a piece of power poppy Americana. This kid just may make it pretty far, that is if there is any justice in this world.
