        I saw a B52's TRIBUTE band , recently. They were on a bill with my friend , Patti Elvis. I'm not a  B52's fan. Liked 'em OK in the early 80's , not enough to buy their records. But , the band was entertaining , and the faux - Wilson sisters were real stunners. I could'nt leave.

      The Cynics were great , despite soundboard hassles , and a crowd of about 30. A lot of  the other old F**ks like me , who normally make it to their shows , did'nt. But , it was good to see they have some younger fans. It was free pinball night , too , Hell , yeah !

      Jerry Lee is playing Dec. 3 , moved up several months....If he does an all - Country set , I'd be just as happy.

      Last "proper" show I attended was Paul Weller a few months ago in Hollywood. And B-52's next to a lake over the summer.

      I saw the Cynics last Saturday night at the 31st Street Pub, and they put on a great show.

      On a sad note, it may be the last time they will ever play at the Pub, because business has been bad at the venue and the owner is looking into selling the place.  The Pub was the place where I got my first taste of garage, i.e. Cynics, Swingin' Neckbreakers, and the Flestones, all in the summer of 2000.  I also saw the Dictators for the first time at the Pub in July 2001, and I discovered other bands such as Cobra Verde, Paybacks, and Manda and the Marbles at the Pub.

      DFA '79 is a two piece (formally just death from above but had to add the '79 cuz i guess the name was taken)  with a bass player ripping on super distortion and a drummer/lead singer. They were a pretty big underground canadian band then broke up when they were getting really popular (started in 2001 broke up in 04, apparently they really hated each other) Bass player went on to form MSTRKRT (not really a fan of that) ANYWAY they put on an amazing live show and excited they got back together. They have a lot of electronic remixes out there so make sure your listening to an original not a remix. anyway enjoy.

      Yeah good fun. And the Japanese kids sure did have a good time! Fun to see Enoky from Jackie & the Cedrics push his way around such a manic crowd and SWANK DJ Hiroshi Sekiguchi get a piggy back ride through it all! I was at the Fri nite show here:

      Yeah ,you know what , I'm friends with one of The Rip Offs' sig - others. I KNEW THEY WERE GOING TO be the gai - jin band at a festival in Tokyo , but , I did'nt know what it was called .

      Hope it's a success. Our friends in Japan need to have a good time , now , y'know ? 

      Marty Shane, Pacifiction Records said:

      It's the Back from the Grave Halloween Ball that goes on every year in Tokyo. There are a ton of Japanese garage bands like Guitar Wolf, Jet Boys, The Go Devils, Jackie & the Cedrics and like 30 more... for 2 nites, first show is an all-niter. They usually have a special guest from overseas and this year it's the Rip Offs.

      John Battles said:

      Yeah , including Roy Loney and The Longshots and The Legendary Stardust Cowboy ! Or , no , waitaminnit that's the Ripoff Records show , is'nt it?

      P.S. -THE CYNICS , NOV. 3 , BOTTOM LOUNGE , CHICAGO. Your only excuse is that you live 100 miles away , or more.

      ....Cynics , tommorrow. Hope to see all THREE fans that I know. Malcolm should be here , but it's not his fault. Maybe they'll play his town. Maybe they'll be selling the new Nervebreakers  Get Hip reissue on 190,000 gram vinyl , as well as their own sweet ass merch. It's $5 to get in ! "Don't talk about it , all you do is...DO IT ! It's Rock'n'Roll , and the message is..DO IT ! TO IT !".        Dec 3 - Jerry Lee , Question Mark (Not in the sameplace.).

      Yeah , it would have been...Dave's wife told me he literally had to carry a guitar with him , everywhere he went , because people would stop him and ask him to sing a song , all the time. He was the lone monk who really wanted to be a star , and , on a local level , he was , before the monks were re - discovered (I mean , discovered.), and , then , when the band reformed , he got the chance to "Mach Schau" and really be what he always wanted to be , a Rock'n'Roll Star.

      Actually, they aren't scheduled to play, BUT, it's known throughout the years that they have shown up to check out the show. A friend went last year and he saw Dave Hartman there, who I think was sitting in playing drums for Mad Tea Party. So, it's a good possibility that I will run into at least one of them!

      John Battles said:

      joey , Chapel Hill/ Are Southern Culture on The Skids playing?
      Sounds like fun. They never do anything in Chicago for Elvis Presley Death Week , or his Birthday.


      joey fuckup said:

      It's very possible I will be going to the Elvisfest event here in the States (Chapel Hill, NC), which is a celebration of Elvis Presley's birthday. It's a 2 nighter with a whole slew of bands from such genres as garage, psychobilly, country, punk, and surf. It's an annual show that's been running strong for around 13 years now I think. This will be the first one I've ever gotten to attend, and most notably, the Malamondos and Gojira-X are the top two acts I hope to catch. That will be in January, but after that, I'm not sure. It seems most good shows are out of town, so that means ROAD TRIP, which is a good thing!

      I guess I shoulD add , Vanian reminded me of Chas. Laughton because he had a MONACLE.

      The  Dyes (Look 'em up on youtube)did their yearly Cramps tribute , with help from members of Thee Invaders and The Bamalamas. It was great. It got very spooky , as "Lux" (Mike) accidentally hit "Ivy" (Lisa)with a piece of the mike stand , from behind ( She did'nt appear to be hurt.) . The exact same thing happened at The Cramps' penultimate Chicago gig in 2003 !

      John Battles said:

      Nice pic. If you scroll up , you'll see that I was there , too. I could'nt believe they did the first album , first , but I guess they wanted to get it out of the way. I've seen them 4 times since they started touring the States , again , in '97, and they've always put on a great show.

      But , they also , generally have only done the two "Hits" from the 1st LP , "New Rose" and "Neat , Neat , Neat". Once , when they and The The Dickies blew the "Misfits" , Agnostic Front and Balzac from Japan (Who , at least ,were better at being The Misfits than The Misfits playing that night.) off the stage , they also did "See Her Tonight".But , I was looking forward to seeing them do the first album , live , even tho' it's not the original band (It's a real band tho' , and a very good one.). Oh , well. That's my lot. Dave looks like Lionel Atwill with that moustachue. I saw him on TV A YEAR OR TWO AGO , HE REMINDED ME OF A THINNER , UHHH , straight , version of Charles Laughton. But , I think that was more his theatrical mannerisms than his appearance.

      Cool , I could've seen Hunter , too. But , I never got into his solo stuff that much , some of it....It was , like $40 , here. The Cynics are also playing in Chicago , next week. They can still tear the young upstarts a new one. Watch , listen , and learn. This is how it's done.

      For some reason, my response to this thread ended up in the costumes thread.  I don't know how that happened.

       

      Anyway, I posted before that I saw Ian Hunter last night, and he put on a really good show.  He played one of my favorite Mott songs, "Roll Away The Stone," along with "All The Young Dudes" and "All The Way From Memphis."  My only complaint is that he didn't play "Once Bitten, Twice Shy."

       

      Next week, I'm going to see the Cynics at the 31st Street Pub.
