Belated re-up from 2008 for a friend. A long traded compilation, Shit, Shower & Shave, recorded in 1989, is the sound of the band while on tour with Tom Petty who, later, infamously, ripped off Westerberg’s “rebel without a clue” line from the Mats “I’ll Be You.” When asked about Petty’s nicking of the lyric, […]

(I posted the following two years ago, my favorite Stevie Wonder show. Happy Holidays. See you in 2011.) There are very few artists who had album runs like the one Stevie Wonder pulled off in the ’70s (the Rolling Stones come immediately to mind). The following set, from January of 1974, finds the artist in […]

What year is it, again? Within the last twelve months I have picked up the reissue of Exile on Main Street, the Keith biography, Life, and went downtown for a screening of the 1972 concert film Ladies & Gentlemen The Rolling Stones documenting the American leg of the Exile tour.

I can count on one hand the number of contemporary ‘indie rock’ bands that 90 percent of my friends all agree upon. As Pavement most definitely fall in that circle, it’s no surprise that it seems like every other person I know in L.A. is making the drive to Pomona, Thursday night, for their Coachella […]

1983 was was an incredibly fertile year for the the Talking Heads. The companion album to Jonathan Demme’s Stop Making Sense made an effort at capturing the band’s live mojo, but due to its length (neutered at nine tracks) failed to paint a complete picture. Thankfully there are a number of high-quality boots in circulation. […]

Before I cool it with the Waits stuff, I thought I’d share this last bit as I’ve been in a heavy early-late ’70s Waits mode for awhile. It’s that time of year. What I love about this era is that it just bounces. There is no one doing it quite like this anymore, not even […]
