Freebase

  1. Channels

    Channels is a rock band. They are based in Baltimore, Maryland. Started in 2003, Channels features Jawbox and Burning Airlines frontman J. Robbins, as well as bassist Janet Morgan and drummer Darren Zentek of Kerosene 454 and Oswego. While they are in a similar musical vein to Robbins' previous bands, Channels feature Morgan on co-lead and backing vocals, giving the band a much more melodic approach to the vocals. Lyrically, Channels features Robbins' most overtly political writing. Robbins and Zentek also currently perform with Vic Bondi as Report Suspicious Activity. Most recently, both musicians have released an EP as Office of Future Plans, along with Brooks Harlan and Gordon Withers. They have releases on DeSoto Records and Dischord Records.

Dictionary of Nautical Terms

  1. channels

    Broad and thick planks projecting horizontally from the ship's outside, to which they are fayed and bolted, abreast of and somewhat behind the masts. They are formed to project the chain-plate, and give the lower rigging greater out-rig or spread, free from the top-sides of the ship, thus affording greater security and support to the masts, as well as to prevent the shrouds from damaging the gunwale, or being hurt by rubbing against it. Of course they are respectively designated fore, main, and mizen. They are now discontinued in many ships, the eyes being secured to the timber-heads, and frequently within the gunwale to the stringers or lower shelf-pieces above the water-way.--In the chains, applies to the leadsman who stands on the channels between two shrouds to heave the hand-lead.
