It used to be common sense that public services, from transport to health and public works, was the duty of government. That thinking has changed. For-profit private companies are stepping up to take the responsibilities and gleefully earn the profits. But what to do when an epidemic takes place? Who’s to blame, who’s to care? In a wide-ranging interview, celebrated activist Tariq Ali puts the questions to public health academic Professor Allyson Pollock.

Allyson Pollock: Well, Ebola is a virus, nobody quite knows what the origins are, some think it might be from the bat, and it is spread through bodily fluids, so that is an important mechanism. In most normal situations it should be very easily contained by quarantine and by isolation but the big problem in the countries where it is most prevalent, which is Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, is that these are very, very poor countries, where the infrastructure has increasingly been ripped out, especially in terms of health systems and the virus is now in urban areas where there is close human contact, so it makes it very difficult to control and contain especially when it is happening in areas where there is a lot of overcrowding and poverty and poor sanitation.

While James Gandolfini passed away in June 2013, he is still pretty entertaining in his second-last film, Nicole Holofcener’s Enough Said (2013). Critic After Dark Noel Vera on the dearly departed.

Never mind that it’s a comedy for adults, never mind that it’s understated yet grounded in everyday upper middle class life (sure it’s upper middle class – many of the houses onscreen could sell for over three hundred thousand, some considerably more, though James Gandolfini’s Albert still wears a shabby gray shirt and eats heavily buttered popcorn out of a bucket, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Eva still ogles the inside of some of her richer clients’ houses), never mind that director Nicole Holofcener seems less interested in the plot twist (Eva dates Albert, realizes one of her clients (Marianne, played with astringent insouciance by Catherine Keener) is Albert’s ex-wife) than in the softpedal interaction between the two middle-aged lovers – if you must take away one thing from the film it’s this: Gandolfini manages to make chubby sexy again.

New York 1984 [Ken G Collection, 2CD]
Live at the Bottomline, New York City, NY; September 12, 1984. Good to very good FM broadcast.

John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band, with their brand of barroom/heartland/blue-collar rock, must have had a very tough time because they do sound like the E Street Band but they took their chance and ran with it with the soundtrack to 1983’s Eddie & The Cruisers. And Wild Summer Nights does make a great track!

Holland 1985 [no label, 2CD]
Live at Buitensocieteit, Zwolle, Holland; November 7, 1985. Good audience recording – a bit trebly.

Thanks to taper Reel Records; the original uploader; and to 1nra1n8ow5 for keeping the show alive at Dime.

Original notes:

In 1985 I bought a ticket for the Utrecht show of Tom Waits. Then found out that he was also to play at the Vrijhof, Technical University Twente in Enschede: my (old) hometown. So I got a ticket for this show also. As the 1985 tour progressed and became more successful and also the demand for tickets… the Vrijhof concert was moved to another (larger) venue in Zwolle. I remember that I was flabbergasted by Tom’s concert, the music was great and his performance was…. Well, after this magical concert I got hold of any Tom Waits LP available within two-to-three weeks. Sound is very good (VG/EX to EX in the old days ratings).

Austria 2012 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Saalfelden Jazz Festival, Saalfelden, Austria; August 25, 2012. Excellent FM broadcast.

One of improvised music’s most in-demand guitarists, Mary Halvorson has been active in New York since 2002, following jazz studies at Wesleyan University and the New School. After three years of study with visionary composer and saxophonist Anthony Braxton, Halvorson also became an active member of several of his bands. Now, as a bandleader and composer, one of Halvorson’s primary outlets is her longstanding trio, featuring bassist John Hebert and drummer Ches Smith. Since their 2008 debut album, Dragon’s Head, the band has been recognized as a rising star jazz band by Downbeat Magazine for five consecutive years. Halvorson’s quintet, which adds trumpeter Jonathan Finlayson and alto saxophonist Jon Irabagon to the trio, has released two critically acclaimed albums on the Firehouse 12 label: Saturn Sings and Bending Bridges.

That hollowed-out pumpkin sitting in the pumpkin patch sure looks like the head some poor soul lost. In the field of opportunity, evil men are again planting seeds for yet another murderous war in the Middle East. John Pilger traces the horrors from Pol Pot to the Islamic State.

In transmitting President Richard Nixon’s orders for a “massive” bombing of Cambodia in 1969, Henry Kissinger said, “Anything that flies on everything that moves”. As Barack Obama ignites his seventh war against the Muslim world since he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, the orchestrated hysteria and lies make one almost nostalgic for Kissinger’s murderous honesty.

As a witness to the human consequences of aerial savagery – including the beheading of victims, their parts festooning trees and fields – I am not surprised by the disregard of memory and history, yet again. A telling example is the rise to power of Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge, who had much in common with today’s Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). They, too, were ruthless medievalists who began as a small sect. They, too, were the product of an American-made apocalypse, this time in Asia.

Victoria, BC 1991 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the 94th St Music Hall, Victoria, BC, Canada; March 16, 1991. Fairly good audience recording.

It’s not often that live Troggs gets shared on the net so fans of the group might want this latter-day lineup as a keepsake.

The Troggs had their day in the sun in the ’60s (what with Hendrix playing Wild Thing at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival) but thanks to Wet Wet Wet’s version of Love Is All Around and the film, Four Weddings And A Funeral, the group became hot again in 1994.

The band’s original drummer, Ronnie Bond, died on November 13, 1992. Dave Wright, another founding member, died on October 10, 2008. In January 2012, after over 40 years of touring, vocalist Reg Presley retired due to lung cancer. Presley died on February 4, 2013 at age 71.

Thanks to crowflies for sharing the show at Dime.
