Concert "preview"/rewind - Jonathan Richman @ Dipiazzas 5/20/2010

This is kind of an awkward post. I had intended to post a capture I made of the concert at DiPiazzas in 2010, but it slipped by. This was supposed to be a preview of the Detroit Bar show last week. so, without further delay, here is the 2010 show which will be followed by the 2012 show at Detroit Bar.

Bingo Hand Job

What's a Bingo Hand Job?

Take one part REM, one part Billy Bragg, one part Chris Stamey, and one part Robyn Hithcock. Mix with alcohol of choice and let sit for an hour and a half.

This is a one off gig from all the above in a small club, The Borderline Club in London, 3/15/1991, doing covers, classics, and other drunken ramblings. From the sounds of the scant applause in the audience, this is one of those legendary secret shows whose story gets passed down for generations of fans.

World Party at Fingerprints Record Store Day 4/21/12

My capture of the Tower Records in-store in 2006 (click here) has become a well-regarded artifact of that in-store tour, and this latest one builds on that. Promoting his excellent new multi-disk box set, Arkaeology, Karl Wallinger brought his band World Party to the awesome record store Fingerprints for Record Store Day for an intimate performance. Karl was engaging, funny, quick-witted, and a generally all-around great host. Having met him at the 2006 performance, he graciously came out before the show to say a quick "hello". "What Does It Mean Now", though on the setlist, was exised from the show. In case you weren't one of the lucky ones, I have edited the show and placed the videos here. Embedding videos in a blog from Youtube does not allow the full video, so double click each video to enjoy at full screen. If you're dying for a DVD, email me for information.

Squeeze pre-Coachella at the Coach House

For your enjoyment, the exciting return of Squeeze. This was their performance just a couple days before their Coachella appearance. The first song and a half, unfortunately, are omitted due to technical difficulties. Careful before you hit play, it blasts really loud at the beginning...watch your volume.

Lou Reed at Fingerprints and the Metal Machine Music exhibit opening at CSU Long Beach




Lou Reed was at Cal State Long Beach to premiere his Metal Machine Music art/music installation. Since he was in Long Beach, he stopped off for a rare in-store appearance at Fingerprints Music. He was promoting his new collaboration with Metallica, Lulu (which, after listening to it all afternoon, is not as bad as people have said… it's actually quite good). Finally, at Long Beach he had a unmoderated conversation with Bob Ezrin, the producer of his legendary, if not much maligned, album “Berlin”. It was really unstructured and while most of us enjoyed it, there was a heckler who probably wanted to hear “Walk on the Wild Side”. It was a very enlightening conversation and if you get a chance to go to the exhibit, do not pass it up. The concept behind the exhibit was to give the spectator the opportunity to experience what it is like on stage for the musicians. Many speakers are set up throughout the room and provide an atmosphere much like a musician experiences.

As can be seen by Fingerprint's Photostream, he has a wide variety of fans, and his influence seems to cut across a wide swath of people. You really can't pinpoint a textbook "Lou Reed fan".

Here is the interesting, albeit geeked out, discussion between Reed, Ezrin, and the sound team behind the installation.

And here is video of Lou reading selections from Lulu:
