JOHNNY WINTER R.I.P. 1944-2014

Blues musician and producer Johnny Winter has died on July 16, 2014 in Zurich, Switzerland at the age of 70, just days after playing at the Lovely Days Festival in Austria. There was no immediate word on the cause of death. Winter, who played with Jimi Hendrix and Muddy Waters, was a friend of John Lennon, who wrote Rock and Roll People in his honour. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards wrote a song for him in 1973 called Silver Train. Winter, like his brother and musician Edgar (of Edgar Winter Group fame) was an albino and known for his long, blond hair and a cowboy hat. During the late ’60s, he performed frequently with Janis Joplin and the pair became lovers. Winter suffered from terrible addiction problems with heroin in the early ’70s and although he had spells of recovery, much of the ’90s was blighted by a reliance on antidepressants, vodka and methadone. Even at 70, Winter was still performing around 200 concerts a year and admitted once that “guitar is the only thing I was ever really great at”. Winter was due to release a new album entitled Step Back on September 2. –

Liverpool 2014 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Echo Arena, Liverpool, UK; July 13, 2014. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Sean Diamond at

It’s been said before that Neil Young is one of those artists who doesn’t give a fuck what people think of him, and there’s clearly some truth in this. Dressed down in a black ‘Earth’ T-shirt and flat peaked black cap, he makes little or no concessions to conventional showmanship, preferring to launch straight into a 12-minute ‘Love And Only Love’ followed by a similarly long ‘Goin’ Home’, epic guitar workouts clearly intended for the many diehards out in their hordes tonight.

Tokyo Budokan Tapes [Reel Master Rema-001/002, 2CD]
Live at the Budokan Hall, Tokyo Japan; May 14, 1973. Fairly good audience recording. A bit distant.

When Beck, Bogert & Appice played Japan in 1973, they released the Live In Japan album, which featured the May 18 and 19, 1973 shows at the Koseinenkin Hall in Osaka. The album was initially considered rare due to the fact of being only released in limited numbers in Japan. A 40th anniversary edition of the album was released in 2013. Live In Japan was the last released album by Beck, Bogert & Appice and their only live album. Within months of the album’s release the band would dissolve after Jeff Beck suddenly decided to leave the band.

It is the responsibility of every citizen to be informed and active about the business of their government. But when activists find themselves sued to bankruptcy, fear rules, the citizens are silenced and ‘Big Brother’ wins. By John Pilger.

The other night, I saw George Orwells’s ’1984′ performed on the London stage. Although crying out for a contemporary interpretation, Orwell’s warning about the future was presented as a period piece: remote, unthreatening, almost reassuring. It was as if Edward Snowden had revealed nothing, Big Brother was not now a digital eavesdropper and Orwell himself had never said, “To be corrupted by totalitarianism, one does not have to live in a totalitarian country.”

As advanced societies are de-politicised, the changes are both subtle and spectacular. In everyday discourse, political language is turned on its head, as Orwell prophesised in ’1984′. “Democracy” is now a rhetorical device. Peace is “perpetual war”. “Global” is imperial. The once hopeful concept of “reform” now means regression, even destruction. “Austerity” is the imposition of extreme capitalism on the poor and the gift of socialism for the rich: an ingenious system under which the majority service the debts of the few.

Live at the Mandel Hall, University of Chicago, IL; February 2, 1967. Live at Northwestern University, Evanston, IL; January 23, 1970. Excellent FM broadcast (June 28, 2014).

What the world needs now…

Tom Paxton has become a voice of his generation, addressing issues of injustice and inhumanity, laying bare the absurdities of modern culture and celebrating the tenderest bonds of family, friends, and community. In describing Tom Paxton’s influence on his fellow musicians, Pete Seeger has said: “Tom’s songs have a way of sneaking up on you. You find yourself humming them, whistling them, and singing a verse to a friend. Like the songs of Woody Guthrie, they’re becoming part of America.” Pete goes on: “In a small village near Calcutta, in 1998, a villager who could not speak English sang me What Did You Learn In School Today? in Bengali! Tom Paxton’s songs are reaching around the world more than he is, or any of us could have realized. Keep on, Tom!” –

“Chew my ass” is a phrase not to be taken lightly in Kurando Mitsutake’s Gun Woman (2014) as a junkie-turned-killer hunts down a crazed perp who is into necrophilia and cannibalism. Stephen Tan reviews.

Going by director Kurando Mitsutake’s Gun Woman (2014), the 1% not only fuck the rest of the 99% but also fuck the dead and eat them up. This is definitely not a film for the squeamish. These super rich belong to an exclusive club that caters to providing the rich with fresh dead bodies, usually of the pretty female kind, for them to enjoy and consume.

Noriaki, the son of rich Hamazaki, is one such crazy dude who made the mistake of fucking and killing a doctor’s wife and then breaking the doctor’s leg. The doctor, now re-named Mastermind, is out for revenge. He buys nubile junkie Mayumi, detoxes her and turns her into a super assassin. Violence, gore, nudity and sex – this is what Gun Woman promises and it doesn’t fail to deliver.

Variety said Tommy Ramone had been undergoing treatment for bile duct cancer at a hospice when he died. All members of the band adopted the surname Ramone although they were not related. Tommy Ramone, whose real surname was Erdelyi, was the last of the original four Ramones. The other Ramones were guitarist Johnny; bassist Dee Dee and vocalist Joey.

Thanks to newyorkdoll who originally shared the show at Dime in 2006; and to swapmeat for keeping it alive at Zomb.

swapmeat noted:

This is a retracked version of the bootleg called “Birthday Bash”. The source of these flac files is a rip of “Birthday Bash. The bootleg is poorly tracked, with several tracks containing two songs. I decoded the flacs to wav, joined the wavs with shntool, then used CD Wave to split the joined wav into tracks. I edited out three seconds from the original flac files, as the end of original track 15 is repeated at the beginning of original track 16.

Thanks also to theface07 for the artwork (slightly modified here).
