THE CHURCH – FAIRFIELD 2016

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Monday 16 May 2016 at

THE CHURCH
Fairfield 2016 [no label, 2CD]
Live on Stage One, Fairfield Theatre Company (FTC), Fairfield, CT; April 16, 2016. Very good audience recording.

The biggest hit for Australian band The Chuch must be Under The Milky Way, the first single off their fifth album, 1988’s Starfish. As part of their efforts to promote their 25th studio album, Further/Deeper (2015), The Church are touring Europe and the United States. Playing two full sets, the first will feature the band’s second album, The Blurred Crusade (1982), in its entirety. Only released in the States as an import, it features the psychedelic rock undertones for which the band would be known. The second set will consist of selections from Further/Deeper and the group’s other hits.

Thanks to larryrulz for sharing the show at Dime.

larryrulz noted:

This was my first time here and I will definitely be back again. This is an amazing little venue with excellent acoustics as you’ll hear on this recording. It’s a very intimate room (capacity 225) with seats surrounding the front and sides of the stage. For purely social reasons, this was a rare late start for me. I sat down and started recording just after track 01 started. The 20-second musical intro is missing and the recording begins just as Steve is singing the first lyric. The rest of the show is complete. There are no other technical issues. Almost no audience chatter.

Thanks to survivor69 for sharing the show at Dime.

survivor69 noted:

Originally a trio of Gustafsson, Berthling, and Werliin, they are now a large band including lots of known names of the Scandinavan scene (Tonbruket, Wildbirds and Peacedrums, Soundtrack of Our Lives, The Thing, Tape…). This is a long, new suite (well, it was new at the time) divided in more parts, that is featured on the double-vinyl album/1CD “Ritual” (May 27, 2016) on RuneGrammofon, the same label as Motorpsycho. It consists of five tracks/tunes, here divided by some sort of interludes/bridges, including bits of everything in them, from soul to freejazz, with lots of grooves, more or less in the same way as the great Shibuza Shirazu.

DAVID BOWIE’S 100 FAVOURITE BOOKS: THE CounterPunch CONNECTION

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Sunday 15 May 2016 at

CounterPunch editor Jeffrey St Clair on the man who… erm… loved books.

Back in 2013, David Bowie posted a list of his 100 favorite books to his Facebook page. A couple of days ago a mutual friend told me that Bowie was at least partially inspired to do this after having read the lists that Alexander Cockburn and I concocted (with vicious internal debates) of our 100 favorite books: non-fiction in English, non-fiction in translation, fiction in English and fiction in translation. [David Bowie had passed away on January 10, 2016 at the age of 69.]

This revelation came as a nice surprise, but it was not entirely shocking. Bowie had been an irregular correspondent to the CounterPunch inbox since he came across the “charming” (Bowie’s word) photo spread of Alex in drag published in Ben Sonnenberg’s Grand Street magazine many years ago.

ALAN PARSONS AND FRIENDS – BEATLES TRIBUTE, FUKUOKA 2001

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Saturday 14 May 2016 at

ALAN PARSONS
with Todd Rundgren, John Entwhistle and Friends
Fukuoka 2001 [Dolphinsmile Archives, 2CD]
Live at the Sun Palace, Fukuoka, Japan; November 13, 2001. Very good audience recording.

wikipedia:

Alan Parsons’ A Walk Down Abbey Road was a concert tour which was launched in North America in 2001 to pay tribute to The Beatles and promote the hits of various headlining band members. Similar to Ringo Starr’s All Starr Band tours, each successive year the band members swapped out and featured the songs of the new line up.

An obvious play on concert-goers expectations with legendary Who bassist John Entwistle in the group… the chord pattern at the beginning [of Todd Rundgren’s Open My Eyes] is lifted directly from The Who’s I Can’t Explain. It would be one of Entwistle’s last concert series as he died on 27 June 2002 one day before the scheduled first show of The Who’s 2002 US tour.

PAUL SIMON – THACKERVILLE, OK 2016

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Saturday 14 May 2016 at

PAUL SIMON
Thackerville, OK 2016 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Winstar Casino, Thackerville, OK; May 7, 2016. Fairly to very good audience recording.

On June 3, 2016, Paul Simon will release his 13th solo studio album, Stranger To Stranger. His previous studio album was 2011’s So Beautiful or So What.

Andy Greene of Rolling Stone dubbed Stranger to Stranger an “experimental album heavy on echo and rhythm that fuses electronic beats with African woodwind instruments, Peruvian drums, a gospel music quartet, horns and synthesizers.” The album makes usage of custom-made instruments, such as the Cloud-Chamber Bowls and the Chromelodeon, which were created by music theorist Harry Partch in the mid-20th century.

Ann Arbor 2016 [no label, 2CD]
Live at The Ark, Ann Arbor, MI; March 28, 2016. Fairly to very good audience recording.

In February 2016, Lucinda Williams released her 12th studio album, The Ghosts of Highway 20. Mojo wrote: “If the alcoholic’s lament Death Came teeters close to parody, then the bare-boned country pop of Place In My Heart and Bitter Memory offer some much needed respite.” And Pitchfork noted: “Listening to the 34 songs of Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone and The Ghosts of Highway 20 in sequence feels less like a chore than a long trip led by an expert navigator with good stories to share.”

Thanks to mebarron for sharing the show on the net.

mebarron noted:

“If My Love Could Kill” is about Lucinda’s father’s death from Alzheimers on January 1, 2015. The lyrics for “Dust” are her reworking of a poem by her father.

GRANT McLENNAN
Brussels 1993 [no label, 1CD]
Brussels Twee Meeter Session, Belgium; May 8, 1993. Excellent FM broadcast.

It was 10 years ago…

Australian singer-songwriter Grant McLennan was noted as the co-founder of The Go-Betweens (with Robert Foster). The group found fame internationally as part of the Beggars Banquet roster and especially with the 16 Lovers Lane album on Mushroom Records in 1988. McLennan was also an accomplished solo performer. In 2001, the Australasian Performing Right Association listed “Cattle and Cane” (1983), written by McLennan, as one of their top 30 Australian songs of all time. McLennan died of a heart attack on May 6, 2006, at the age of 48 in Brisbane.
