Good to see another Blue Deacon track played tonight...
You wait for months for a new thread then two come along at once...
Billy, do you know about the Day of the Dead project - 59 Grateful Dead tracks covered by umpteen different bands/singers and produced by the Dessners (from The National)?
No but will check it out.
How was the RHLF Neil Young thingy, Norrie?
Adam,Tonight (Tuesday) is 1976 & 1996Dig oot yon list! >8-D
I'm holding a wee competition to see whether the response time on this blog is quicker than that of my son to my texts. Winner gets a Royal Blood CD, played once only and in top condition apart from the music, which is execrable.
I've already got that CD. I like it...
I did try, I really did. After all I'd chosen it, possibly on the basis of half a track heard on a Glastonbury clip or summat. On the plus side, really liking the Dead covers released today.
the CD's yours. You just have to make it to the next blog night-out. Assuming there are any bloggers left.
At least 6 at last count.
Im still here! Just finished Street Child Games (check out videos on Street Child United facebook page)Off to Montevideo for Easter. Normal service resumed Tuesday.
For Scotch Git
Why, thank you, Mr. Miller!I didn't know Chicago was your kind of town!
It's on State Street (that great street) in the home of the deep pan pizza. Bonnie was on great form.
Whenever Bonnie is in Glasgow she always manages to drag Phil Cunningham onto the stage.I'm looking forward to the GRCH gig. :o)
Finally getting round to catching up and I see you nicked my Disco Stomp clip Billy.But did you know the bloke doing the demo is an old mate of mine? A Belgian called William. In true Robin Hood fashion we know him as William the Belgian.
I didn't think that I nicked it from you. Great clip though.
Its still his party piece.
In Belgium is he Willie The Walloon?
Actually because of his dancing he was known as Willie Wiggler.That didnt sit well with us over here so W t B became his moniker.
NEXT WEEK'S THEMES!
Whats "musical locations" all about then?
Venues, I assume.I fully expect Glen to request a Bonnie Raitt song, recently performed in the Windy City!
Well I was at The Hydro last night for the first time. I don't expect to be there very often, given that my bands aren't usually arena-sized ones, but it did the job and I thought the sound was great. I went mainly for The Twilight Sad even though they were support, but they are just the best. Love them. Shura who were on first were OK and CHVRCHES did their thing spectacularly well, it's just not completely my thing. I read through some of the comments about the Hydro on their FB page and they vary hugely as expected. Some folks seemed to have pretty awful experiences, but some of the other moans - well firstly we all know the food's extortionate - why would you go there planning to buy any if you don't wantt o spend a fortune? pickpockets at a Libertines gig? And that's the fault of the stewards? Ahem, if you don't know your posket's been picked, how the hell is a steward who's not wearing your jacket supposed to spot it happening in a crowded standing area? Over-zealous security checks? nowadays? Though it certainly wasn't the case last night. A swift bag search was all. And while I sympathise with a mother being upset that her son't first gig experience was ruined because of where they were seated or not seated, or summat can't remember the details, I would have serious doubts about subjecting a 7 or 9 year-old's ears to the noise level and flashing lights. Speaking of which, the lights last night were fantastic. Don't know if they were home-made, but Shearwater (US band) , who played King Tut's recently, made much of having had their lighting and laser gloves made in Glasgow.Someone moaning that everyone wasn't standing, even though they were in the seated area???Anyhow, I seem to have turned into Henri. I blame lack of sleep.
That'll do Gaie...Glad you enjoyed the gig.
See, you try to bring a little controversy and variety into the non-convo and you just get told to shut up. It's all so deja vu. Wonder how Thing-fish is?;-)
Thats a blast from the past. I imagine he's just a skeleton these days.Long time no sea.
Cynthia Plaster Caster is always pestering me
Re: "Musical locations"Not venues. Allegedly...
MONDAYAn opporchancity to request Iris DeMent.
Sounds of the 50s should rule out Deacon Blue etc.
A change in theme tonight. It's now songs with sound effects. Cue Hanging on the Telephone...
Y'all gonna compile a record breaking list?
Joanna Newsom: Time, as a Symptom - the GIO teatime listeners deserve it. Never come nearer to trashing my radio just to stop the pain when it was played on the Roddy Hart show a while back. Nice birdsong though.
Managed 17 secs. Telephoning for counselling.
this is more fun
I listened to Joanna Newsom twice in a row. She's obviously a bit of an acquired taste...
