Here is a series of edited clips which combine to be the whole documentary included on the Music Without Fear DVD. I can be seen interspersed throughout the documentary. When I got there, I was about halfway through the line. I didn't have any laminate because I had purchased mine in Orange County. This was at the Sunset Strip Tower Records. An employee initially confronted me for not having a laminate, but then not only got one for me but brought me to the front of the line. I was first in to see them. I had my service dog, Hawk, with me. When they brought me in, all of the band got off the platform, except Ian. He was apparently "too cool" to come down and see me. The other guys were really cool. Matt, the drummer, was really into Hawk. He had a dog at home who could not go on tour with them. Unfortunately, Hawk did not visibly get in the shot, however you can see Matt petting him. There was a "secret show" at the Whiskey that night. You needed to get the special laminate though. I asked the band where I could get one, and they directed me to an assistant who got one for me. The show was really cool... but they went on way late. I had my friend watching Hawk while I went to the show, and so I had to get going. I saw about three songs. Then, I proceeded to get lost finding my friend (he was only a couple blocks away). All in all, a great experience. I am seen in Part 1 at 3:15, 3:57, and 5:48 and Part 2 at 2:18
Alright... I've been holding on to all my Jonesy's Jukeboxes and will set them free at appropriate times. This is an appropriate time for this one as Malcolm McLaren died last week. He had a rather contentious relationship with the band, as most managers do. Apparently a lot of money didn't go to the band but went to him. Of course, none of the band members would have a career without him. Also, a lot of people would not have a career without him (are you listening Green Day, Offspring, NOFX, etc., etc.?) Anyhow, in tribute to Malcolm, I present to you his very enlightening and entertaining interview with Jonesy. Also, I found a mashup credited to him which blends "Love Will Keep Us Together" and "Love Will Tear Us Apart".
The interview is not in full because they went over due to him coming in late. This was such an important interviewee, they let it run over. Well, I only had my computer set to record the regular time.
The Church played an amazing show last Friday, going backwards through their catalog. Yes they are well-known for their hit "Under the Milky Way", but any Church fan knows that they are so much more than that. Anyhow, I couldn't keep this great show to myself, so I recorded it and have it here for you to listen to.
ODEO is down, so for the time being, I have come up with this streaming solution. If there are ANY problems, E-MAIL me. I won't be able to contact you if you eave a comment here!
If you're new here or if you are a regular customer, I just ask one thing of you. Please drop me a line and let me know what you thought of this and where you came from (where you heard about it) and where you're from. Send me e-mail.
Look out for their cover of Smashing Pumpkins "Disarm":
And just because I don't do things half-assed, I've even gone so far as to include the tour program. The Church Acoustic Tour 2010 Program - An Intimate Space If the program is too small, click on the magnifying glasses or click on the link to take you to my Scribd site. Or better yet, click "Fullscreen".
This is the complete package. All you're missing is the overpriced beer and the people sitting behind you talking about work or relationships at a volume louder than the music.
