Acid FM got some killer reviews for the song, "Falling." If you haven't heard it you should listen to it right now. Below are a few:

-“I love this song instrumentally. I like that the instrumentals are so well organized that I anticipate the way the artist/vocalist will sound and love his voice as well when I do hear him.”

-“The guitar in this is really nice. I love that bell in the background too. This is really emotion invoking and feeling. I dig the vibe that it creates. Thanks so much.”

Hello to all! I have yet to make a post to the page, so here goes: I would like to thank all the Acid FM fans who have welcomed me into the band with open arms. Sparky and Doc are two of the most creative and gifted musicians I have ever worked with, and I can't wait to see what the future holds in store for Acid FM. 

I'd like to wish Jeremiah the best of luck in his future endeavors, I have yet to meet him, but I can say that he set the bar pretty high, and laid the groundwork for me to work off of, and to this point it has been a challenge and a lot of fun trying to fill his shoes. I hope I can do him justice and carry on the great work that he started. 

I look forward to meeting as many of you Acid FM fans as possible, and I cannot wait to hit the stage with these guys to entertain you all. 

Thanks again for all the love and support. You guys make it all worth while.


06.01.14 -
Acid FM's new drummer Paul Fleuret is working out beautifully, we've got 5 songs that are ready to go live! There were lots of laughs today, discussing all the stuff a band has to handle, everything is in the right place... so yes, Rock N' Roll every day baby!

05.29.14 - Acid FM is pumping.. so much going on, and rehearsals are gearing up. Looking forward to Sunday.

05.25.14 -
After over two years, Acid FM drummer Jeremiah Johnson is leaving Acid FM to pursue other things in his life. Jeremiah informed us of all this over a month ago, & was kind enough to continue rehearsals and complete the May show schedule. Jeremiah is and will always be a good friend to me and Doc. Most importantly though, Jeremiah left for personal reasons and there is absolutely no animosity or personal conflicts between any of us in any way. On another note, a week before Jeremiah informed us of his departure, I met a very talented drummer by the name of Paul Fleuret who said to me, "I would love to make music you sometime," So, instead of holding auditions and going on the, "hunt," for a new drummer, I took meeting Paul as a sign of EXTREMELY Good Fortune. Doc and I have been working with Paul for several weeks now, he has already learned several songs and Acid FM is playing the first show with Paul on July 12th 2014 at none other than the Spoken Space Theater (formerly known as the Black Box Theater.) Changes happen, and I try to embrace them instead of rejecting them. Ultimately, Acid FM is stronger and is pushing Onward!

05.22.14 -
So it is, and so shall it be, Acid FM rehearsal was historic tonight, that's the best way to put it. Everything happens for a reason, and either way everything will be OK. I have said it before, I will say it for the LAST TIME... if you have never seen Acid FM, this coming Saturday night is the night...we got the set ready to go for the Horace Johnson Benefit Show, this coming Saturday, May 24th. BE THERE! JAM! 

05.20.14 -
Acid FM rehearsal felt good tonight, we got the set list arranged for the Horace Johnson Benefit show, this coming Saturday, May 24th at the Spoken Space Theater, (formerly the Black Box Theater). If you knew Horace Johnson this is a show you can't miss, plus there are some changes coming up in Acid FM and everything is looking and sounding beautiful! Playing that Rocks n' Roll baby, every day! 

05.18.14 -

12.18.13 - Back in 2009 & 2010, an album was recorded with the Acid FM line-up of that time. It was also the first album I sang Lead vocals on and it was called, "Luna Allure." After 4 years of sitting in the vault, I am going to release it. I completed the final mixes on it a couple weeks ago and Alisa Coral, (friend & band mate from Space Mirrors) mastered it and WOW! It Sounds Amazing! Since the Acid FM Line-up from that time has since "parted ways," I am going to release this as a past album, limited to 300 CD copies, not to mention a reboot of "Electroviolet Paradox," is in the works as well. Plus of coarse the new Album, "currently untitled," is set for sometime in April. 2014 is going to be a big year for Acid FM!

OK, the reviews are in and well they are quite interesting about our song "Ride [Driver Edition]" Here are a couple that made me chuckle. 

“The bass intro resembles the likes of Deftones and eventually bursts into the magma sludge of bands like The Sword and Mastodon. The singer sounds like a hair metal fanatic singing about traditional metal elements. Burning rubber while living life in the fast lane. Classic elements are inspirational and are always the roots of contemporary musicians. This band fits right into Judas Priest era of Hard Rock.”

“Yes! This song rocks! I love the tempo and the energy of it. It sounds a little bit mysterious and the singer has a good strong tenor voice. The instrument arrangements were also great. The mood of the song was rather warnful as the lead singer said that ' this is was the last time '... The volume of it was good and strong. The vocal pitch was just right.”

“The bass is really deep really powerful the guitar and drums comes in gratefully but I really like that bass. How the singing and instruments swoop the way they do throughout the song is extraordinary. I would say this artist knows his stuff and knows how to make a great song. The lyrics are immerse and this song has a great melody. I don't think the instruments are harmonizing because that 's not what kind of song this is I don't think that was the edge they where going for. The production is very well sorted I think it will do well in promotions.”

12.08.13 -
What a day today! We rehearsed like mad! We now have 20 songs in rotation for shows, YES ....20. We want to make sure our sets are as diverse as possible from one show to the next, so you never see the same show twice. It was a work day for sure, lots accomplished and we rocked the house! Playing that Rocks N' Roll baby, every day!

12.05.13 -
Acid FM Practice was hectic tonight, but we accomplished some direction as to where we stand as band and where we are going... and yes das right baby... WE ARE GOING!

12.03.13 -
The Acid FM show at the Roux last night was fantastic, it ROCKED! We got to meet some really cool people and had a great show. But I don't think I have ever had a worse day than yesterday. First, I got word my aunt passed away about 6 hours before i could go see her yesterday afternoon. Then the starter on the truck was acting up and I got on the road to the show about an hour later than I wanted too, then AFTER the show, I moved the truck to load up and the starter died again. Doc ended up on the ground in the parking lot with a crow bar in hand to get the truck started, GO DOC! I was about to NOT make it back home! Also, so glad Big Mike, Cari, & Stan were there, we'll be doing it again soon! WHAT A NIGHT!

12.03.13 -

07.14.13 - 7 years ago today! Acid FM's Electroviolent Paradox was released on Surfaty Records. Featuring Doc Obergefell on Vocals & Bass, Tony Hatfield on Drums, & (myself) Sparky Simmons on guitar. Should a re-release happen of that album?

07.13.13 - Today is the day, THAT day... there is a song Me and Doc wrote back in 2007 sometime called, "713," and it is one of my all time favorite songs and Doc as well, but with this song came the CURSE of the 713. Because, every single day since we will encounter the numbers 713 at some point. This song is on the list for the next Acid FM release, so since today is none other than 7-13, we are recording ALL DAY! This is somewhat of a goodbye to "Justified American Music." We are writing new songs, and re-inventing everything! So we are recording everything today LIVE, and the recordings will be released sometime in the future, some on the upcoming CD EP, most for an Acid FM box set that is in process.

Playing that Rocks n Roll baby every day!

07.07.13 - Acid FM Practice was amazing as always, but tonight something happened that has never happened before, we wrote a HIT! Yes, out of all the songs we have written this one is the ONE! It's called, "I Want You..." and t literally came out of nowhere. The music is pretty much there, and I haven't written all the lyrics yet... but, in a way the lyrics are already done... they were done before we started, if that makes any sense. That it's baby! Acid FM is ready to take the WORLD BY STORM! Playing that Rocks N Roll, every day!

07.03.13 - The show at Tremont Music Hall on June 29th was A BLAST! Looking forward to the next one! Here is a video of the song Hungry, taken by Eddie Mowery!

06.27.13 - Acid FM Rehearsal was string breakin' rocking tonight, and that is a good omen, because the last time I broke a string during practice was at the last battle of bands, and we won that night so...

06.24.13 - Acid FM rehearsal was EXCELLENT, we had a Rock N' Roll accident tonight though, my guitar rig consists of a Jones Tube Head & 4 x 12 cabinet, and Jones 2 x 12 Tube Combo, and well during a song tonight my 2 x 12 combo fell FLAT ON it's face.

06.13.13 - I usually get on here and blog every night about what's going on w/ Acid FM even if it is something as simple as a really intense rehearsal... but not tonight. Jeremiah & I did work out some changes on a new song tonight... but Doc is in NY right now because his brother-in-law will probably not live through this week, Jeremiah lost a family member this week, and my close Space Mirrors friend Cyndee Lee Rule, her husband Jeff (Super Cool Guy) has Cancer and Hospice just came to see him.

10.15.12 -
We have thought, and thought about this... we need a name for this album and the proverbial self-titled album "Acid FM," is reserved for later... so, think of a killer name for the CD, if we use the name you think of, aside from having your name in the CD's credits, you'll get 2 free copies it, mailed to you at NO COST! To quote my good friend Jeremiah Johnson ... J-A-M!

Also, right now Jeremiah, Doc, & myself are throwing around the idea of releasing a "Live," version of the studio album, along with the studio album, & when I say live I mean everything recorded as we are performing it... no overdubs, or layers... Here is the catch though... this "Live," version would be an exclusive MP3 download with the PRE-ORDER purchase of the CD. It is only available as a FREE Bonus download; after the album is officially released... that's it. Also, "War Pigs," will NOT be included in this LIVE album. ...Thoughts?... anyone?

It's pretty much common knowledge that Acid FM is going to release a Black Sabbath cover tune, none other than "War Pigs," I am going to record vocal tracks to that tonight and that's it. The album is officially recorded, and in post production! Playing that Rocks n Roll baby ... EVERY DAY!

10.14.12 - Acid FM Practice tonight ROCKED! Aside from the set... we wrote the 11th LIVE song tonight, and this is awesome because I could let my voice rest and focus on this new tune, it's completed except lyrics and those are coming soon! Playing that Rocks n roll baby! ... Every day!

I feel like the luckiest person in the world, I am in a band with 2 of the coolest and most talented people on the planet; Jeremiah Johnson on Drums & Doc Obergefell on bass.

07.05.12 - Attention: Acid FM is seeking a 2nd guitarist from the Kannapolis, Concord, Charlotte area, preferably someone between the ages of 20 and 30, in into Hard / Psych Rock.

06.19.12 - "...Every time I disintegrate." New Acid FM material coming soon.

06.11.12 - Aside from rehearsing with the live Acid FM act with 4 new un-recorded songs, I have gone through lyrics for all 78+ Acid FM songs (including a Sabbath & Alice In Chains Cover), ended up writing lyrics to 14 songs. All I have to do now is get in the vocal booth and record them. I am hoping to knock out 5 or 6 a day over the course of a 6 day week, so if all goes well mixing will begin in July! \m/

10.03.10 - This page will be updated soon! There is a ton of stuff going on, and there will be indo here ASAP! -SparX

08.02.10 - I am currently in the process of getting every Acid FM Song ever written ready for realease! Going to take a few months but, that's where I am. Talk to you all soon. SparX

02.27.10 - The upcoming Acid FM album is currently post production, it has been recorded, and everything sounds perfect. I can't wait for the response on this recording. You will be able to hear it soon enough.  We are currently booking shows and getting this band out and back to the live world, all is well and I will see you all on the flipside. –SparX Guided by the power of Space.

03.01.08 - There is So much to tell...OMG...well first off there are two new songs entitled "Crux," & "Space Beyond Space." unloaded to myspace.com/acidfmmusic We just recorded, mixed, & mastered these in the last week, and you are listening to the absolute BEST of Acid FM. The six songs in the player are the newest, latest, greatest...Crux is about the apparent horrors of excessive drug use, and how no matter how much the "powers that be," try to remove drug's availability, it will always be up to the user to stop. "Space Beyond Space," is one our songs that is about ...whatever you are thinking the moment you hear it...yeah ...for all you newbie's...welcome to my world of Psychedelic Hard Rock.

02.26.08 - For the last 5 years...Acid FM has been SparX writing music, Doc writing lyrics, and then working with countless drummers....and then recording them, and getting it out there. Well I guess that time is over...because Doc is moving back to New York for urgent family matters, and he isn't coming back anytime soon. Doc and I are still friends and there is nothing negative between us, but...Acid FM will continue ultimately with me (SparX) writing/recording vocals as well as all the music except drums. In case you didn't know this...I own the recording studio. You guys know of what we have released to this day, but what you don't know about are the 50 something OTHER songs we have recorded over the last 5 years, and have never released, I am considering posting all those songs on acidfm.com for download, but that isn't decided at the moment, so...keep an eye out. Doc's email will remain... doc@acidfm.com and of course mine is sparx@acidfm.com I hate to see this happen but...I knew change was on the way. Doc I shall miss working with you and good luck on getting things together in NY...later bro. Acid FM will never be the same because Doc and I sound nothing alike on vocals...and I am not a singer by trade...I am going through a HUGE change trying to pull off vocals and guitar...in the studio it's nothing ...but LIVE...that's a whole new ballgame. I am used to being free to move on stage and now I am trapped singing...VERY DIFFERENT. I am working my ass off getting comfortable with my voice, while playing guitar. The tour is still happening, everything will continue as planned, except our latest release ....PHASE II...that is up in the air...I can say this, I am not going to release a record that doesn't have the singer that's on the record, no longer in the band...so...yeah. There may be a slight delay on PHASE II. The acoustic release will still happen....hell we haven't even named the acoustic record yet. But so you know...all the music online RIGHT NOW is all Doc on vocals. I knew something was up when I found myself OUTSIDE on February 21st around midnight, in winter,... Swaying to the lunar eclipse...It awoke something in me that I am still trying to understand, and I knew change was in the air. The next day Doc left Acid FM, and everything changed. EVERYONE Keep in touch! –SparX Solo like Han...just me and my Wookie!

02.01.08 -  Acid FM has finally released the long awaited online CD entitled "Revolution A.D." We decided to release this downloadable album along with our retail CD "PHASE II" because there were so many GOOD SONGS that didn't make the final cut for "PHASE II" . We hope you enjoy this FREE music ...and please crank it up...& melt your ears off! Mailing List emails will come from acidfm@carolina.rr.com Please allow us to reconfigure your psych!  -SparX

It's Official! Acid FM has just recently signed a deal with Monster Fuzz records.  Monster Fuzz's website & myspace are both under construction, but this is a new label with some new ideas on promotion and success for all its artists. I will keep everyone posted on when the sites will become available, (less than a week) and I hope everyone checks out these sites. I know Monster Fuzz is going to be rounding up several acts for a compilation CD that will be available online. Go against the grain...NAKED!  -SparX

01.10.08 -  It's a new year and time for some serious changes! First & Foremost, the promo CD's and promo items have been somewhat delayed mainly because our record label is ...No longer.

08.1.06 - Electroviolnet Paradox has been met with an awesome response so far! The CD went to 8 countries, including various CD chain stores via SurFaty Records. I wanted to personally thank everyone everywhere for all your help and support in making this first release such a positive experience. THANX!

We have also recently acquired a full-time live drummer, Ben Shepherd. Formerly of the band "Jim's Great Adventure," This guy plays drums like a monster! I have worked with many drummers over the years and this guy knocked Doc and I out of our socks! Doc and I are looking forward to writing with Ben, and getting some shows under our belt.

Everything seems to be in the right place. Ian Guthrie (original Slee Stack Noise member) recorded drum tracks to all of Doc and I's unreleased material... 17 songs! We are currently mixing/finalizing and should have some new MP3's online soon.  -SparX

07.02.06 - At long last Acid FM has finally gotten a 6 song EP CD done, entitled "Electroviolent Paradox." Released on SurFaty Records (7.14.06), this CD represents everything Acid FM is and stands

for musically. We have several hundred promo copies going Everywhere from California and NY to Australia and the UK. We have a couple copies we are going to give away over the net, after that they are $10.00 plus shipping. Get in touch and we will get you one, hurry we don't have many.

I have been very slack on getting this site up and going, but all the links work, and we are going to add info as soon as we get it. We are still without a permanent drummer and we are considering adding a bass player so  Doc can be free to do other things on stage. Check back for updates.  -SparX
