Barling — Barling With a “B”


Country

Louis Fowler
With the exception of a few months in my early teens when I was trying to impress gutter-punk chicks, I have always had a deep and abiding love of country music. Because, as any kid growing up in this region will tell you, it was all my leather-skinned dad would listen to in the car.

Louis Fowler

Features

Louis Fowler

Ave., in the otherwise-threadbare frontage, is a striking mural of a winged goddess that almost begs one to stop and investigate.

Indie

Louis Fowler
The first time I heard Weezer was a magical moment. It was early-September 1994 and I was in the parking lot of a Catholic church making out with a girl I had desperately been trying to hook up with for weeks.

Louis Fowler
As someone who is doing his damnedest to lose more than three decades of weight gain, it has taken years of self-inflicted embarrassment to fully realize that “all you can eat” isn't a challenge, but a curse.
