The Goddamn Gallows are touring again this summer. There's a ton of dates, and if they come near you, check them out. One of the best live bands I've ever seen. A combination of rockabilly, punk, and bluegrass, and they put on a great performance.

I've been bingeing on old Laura Nyro songs. What a force of nature that skinny little Jewtalian chick was.

SSW can't stand her, for some reason. Just doesn't like how her voice sounds.

I'd love to catch these guys live. Do they circulate the country or are they a regional tour?

I went to their label's website and HOLY DAMN! There are some awesome groups the "Farmageddon Records" is putting out. I have been acquainted with the thrash side of bluegrass and acoustic music, but not quite so much the black bluegrass before. Highlonesome sounds awesome, too.

Some of the label sounds a lot, to me, like Drunk Armstrong - a local hard playing bar band out of Nashville that occasionally picks up a corner to play until the cops chase them off it.

"The Rip" by Portishead and Dolly Parton's cover of "Stairway to Heaven."

OBS: Now I'm listening to a radio program called Punk Rock in Your PJ's, which features songs like "Where Do Broken Hearts Go?" and "Beat on the Brat."

Steve Roach's "Dreamtime Return." I am against a deadline for a magazine article and it does not go well so far.

I overdid the interviewing, I think..... :cry:

Same as I've been for a couple of months now. I still don't really get how this got started but I'm just mainlining the Red Elvises morning, noon and night. On the way over here today I listened to "Monsters from Mars" (it was a short drive).

I just got a copy of the CD "Charlemagne: The Omens of Death" by Christopher Lee and various heavy metal musicians. I listened to a couple of tracks on the way to work. It rocks. Lee has to be the coolest ninety-year-old in the world.

Watched Guy Richie's RocknRolla over the weekend, and was reminded of the great Sonic's cover of the Richard Berry garage rock classic, "Have Love Will Travel". Such a hard-edged sound for a band from 1965. Definitely check out their stuff if you like punk, as it's got that kind of urgency to it.

Peter Case is still great. He was great in the seventies in the Nerves and the Plimsouls, he was great in the eighties as a newly minted folkie, and he was great last weekend in a solo performance at an upscale bar in Sonoma. He may physically be kind of a wreck nowadays, but that doesn't even matter.

I'm still constantly scrounging around for videos of other shows of his, both new and ancient.

I'm a big fan of the Sonics. Their drummer seemed to be trying to destroy his kit, and possibly the Earth's crust.

One of the first bands to break out of the sixties psychedelic scene in San Francisco was The Sopwith Camel. They're still together. It's been intermittent and occasional, but the same guys have now been playing together for fifty years! There's been a lineup change or two, but at this particular show, the original guys who'd dropped out were present as guests. One of them, "Truckaway" Sievers, did a few of his own songs solo in the middle of the set. Despite spending decades away from the music business, he's the best songwriter of the bunch.

The show was as sixties as you could hope. Long jams with flute and sitar, tamborines and the smell of weed, and a light show. Oh man, a light show in the hands of someone who's mastered the form and has two assistants to work the optical turntables is something you should see at least once. And the venue was in Berkeley.

Three of us went... Not because we needed some sixties-ness, but because Nandi Devam (the Artist Formerly Known as Terry MacNeil) is a friend of ours. He's one of the coolest guys I know. He's half of the band's core duo with frontman Peter Kraemer, who is kind of a doofus. Despite his musical importance, Nandi often seemed to be keeping himself as invisible and inaudible as he could get away with. So that was a bit frustrating. But we had fun, and I got a psychedelic poster that was made specifically for this show, with autographs.
