From the files of Superwolf new [re: johnnysitar]  

Here's a picture I took a few hours ago: Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and Matt Sweeney, playing at my store as part of a day of 5 instore performances. Rose_Stardust, if you're out there, be jealous, because yes, I shook Will Oldham's hand.



Fumble out of bed and stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
And yawn and stretch, and my life is a mess
And if I never make it home today, God bless

Compromise, ain't nuttin nice new [re: Marquis]  

I saw Violent Femmes on Thursday.

They were old, sweated a lot but played a 'blistering' (ahem) 2 hour set which included Jesus Walking on the Water and Country Death song.

Everybody was happy

If that's not irony then I don't know what is

Reunion? Never Split? new [re: Remade/Remodeled]  

Violent Femmes? I hadn't got a clue they were still around. I put on one of their albums recently (that one with the T.Rex cover on it) and was asking myself why I found that music thrilling in the 80s. Very little eddge when listening to it now. But I did. They were a very good band then.

And I want to believe
In the madness that calls 'now'

Re: Reunion? Never Split? new [re: EJSunday]  

I saw GWAR a couple of weeks ago. The sound system was shit and the crowd was shittier, but on the plus side, it was FUCKEN GWAR. Which is a pretty big plus side.

Can you feel it? Can you feel it?

I hear the rain new [re: EJSunday]  

The original drummer rejoined a few years ago when they hit the classic rock touring circuit.

Live they're quite fun. Mostly drawn from the first and second albums (obviously) but a surprising amount of material from albums like Rock and everything much more... er... 'rock' than on record.

If that's not irony then I don't know what is

The Hyped new [re: Remade/Remodeled]  

Bloc Party played a club show in Berlin last night and though I was only semi-convinced by their debut album and a little sceptical after all the fuss which has been made recently about the alledgedly "new Franz Ferdinand" I did go. And I am happy I did as they delivered a highly energetic rock show.

A very charismatic frontman, loads of fast noise from guitars, a tremendous sound mix plus a terrific light show kept everybody in the new and very atmospheric "Postbahnhof" club glued to what was happenig onstage from the very first note of their best song "Like Eating Glass" until the end of the show.

Imagine U2 and John Lydon's PIL together on one stage, get them on speed and let them cover Velvet Underground, then you'll get close to what Bloc Party sounded like.

Are they the next Franz Ferdinand? No. They do not even sound or look similar to them. What they have in common is a good touch of 80s retro but where FF go for the easily recognizable tune and the sing-a-long chorus Bloc Party go for musical elements, sounds and noise breaks. Where FF are tongue-in-cheek, Bloc Party go for a serious attitude and where FF look like they do what they do on purpose, Bloc Party seem a little uncontrolled and hectic.

Will they be hitting it big in the future? I am not sure. So far they are stil missing enough catches and tunes, enough clear cut songs, live and on record. But if they can stretch their songwriting to the level of "So Here We Are" or "Like Eating Glass" on a more permanent basis than they'll be with us for quite a while. I'd like that.

As a fully committed support act hater I must also admit that I saw one of the few really good support bands ever last night. "The Cribs" played some thrilling guitar power pop, wild and agressive but always kept on track with some terrific vocal harmonies. I'll cetainly keep my eyes on those guys too.

Well that's definetly a winning combination. I'll have to check them out. It's good that they're not the next Franz Ferdinand, God knows we don't need another one of those.

The Formerly Hyped new [re: EJSunday]  

Earlier in the month, I saw R.E.M. for the first time since 1995. A very good show, set list and stage effects....although unfortunately they are now a bit pricey ($135). Support act was Marquis' fave band, Bright Eyes.




R.E.M. at Rod Laver Arena, April 3, 2005

Rod Laver [re: SoulLoveChild]  

Sadly, the photo is not mine (I had a good spot but not THAT close!) but you're right - it's from the exact position we were at for the Bowie concert.

Nick Cave will be brilliant.
