Live performance and chat with Misty Roses (Robert Conroy and Michael Harron) (Click here for a video of "Address Book.")
 
The dark and the dramatic elements of towering song from a bygone era are the stylistic embodiments of Misty Roses' music. Fronted by Robert Conroy and Johnny Perl, they channel the likes of Scott Walker, Dusty Springfield, Burt Bacharach,, Serge Gainsbourg, Jimmy Webb, Ennio Morricone and many other musicians who incorporate a certain sweeping orchestral sound into their work. Since carrying an orchestra with them is a bit out of the price range these days, Misty Roses often strips things down to an electronic version. Misty Roses strips down even further to an acoustic version with piano for their latest performance on Irene's show.

  Mon. 11/28/11 12:28pm Sean Gostage:

Ah, the rather wonderful Massive Attack, the one decent thing to come out of Bristol, UK, well may be cider as well!

This song is beautiful .... great discovery for a grey monday
  Mon. 11/28/11 12:33pm v k:

  Mon. 11/28/11 12:44pm Sean Gostage:

Hey Irene,
Christmas, don't get me started, we have to put up with it from October onwards, but ho, ho, etc, etc!!

  Mon. 11/28/11 12:52pm paula pc:

this set is killing me in the best possible way, and the last set was the perfect lead-in...thank you, Irene.
  Mon. 11/28/11 12:55pm Irene:

Happy belated Thanksgiving! Glad you're all enjoying the music! I just listened to this Scott Walker tune the other day and was struck by how sad a scene it was. Walker at his best!
  Mon. 11/28/11 12:56pm dc pat:

  Mon. 11/28/11 12:57pm Looms:

Now that's a lovely collection of classics, thanks :)
  Mon. 11/28/11 1:00pm paula pc:

and anything from Avalon is the heavy artillery...thanks for picking this relatively light number, or I'd be paralyzed for the rest of the day...
  Mon. 11/28/11 1:01pm mahendra singh:

very nice set, really enjoyed the nancy sinatra and now the roxy music … memories of art school in the 80s, doing paste-up & scouting for work
  Mon. 11/28/11 1:28pm Adrian in London:

Tonight, Mogwai are playing Shanghai, China.

Enjoying this Irene.
  Mon. 11/28/11 1:34pm Van in Dallas:

At WFMU, you can tuna fish but...oh never mind :)
  Mon. 11/28/11 1:50pm bladegaye:

Are Sparks homo or hetro or other?
  Mon. 11/28/11 2:01pm Looms:

Great performance and interview. Thanks for the songs and good spirit.
  Mon. 11/28/11 2:10pm Irene:

Sparks are definitely Other.

  Mon. 11/28/11 2:19pm SteveF:

Nice NICE song Irene "Only the Rain".....great for a Monday....
  Mon. 11/28/11 2:23pm Irene:

Now that I don't know. Sparks seem to like women. I mean "otherworldly" if anything.
  Mon. 11/28/11 2:28pm Van in Dallas:

Really loved that set. Was researching Laura Gibson and saw that same track of hers played a few days ago on Shrunken Planet :)
  Mon. 11/28/11 2:30pm SteveF:

I looked for the track on Spotify - not listed...sadly
  Mon. 11/28/11 2:41pm Irene:

Steve, I do see it on iTunes, if buying it is your thing. Spotify doesn't have everything unfortunately.
  Mon. 11/28/11 2:43pm trrs:

I heard a blurb on the (other) radio saying Motian played well into his 80s.
  Mon. 11/28/11 2:46pm Irene:

Paul Motion was just 80, but a very young 80. My husband & I saw him play I think a little earlier this year. Very sad!
  Mon. 11/28/11 2:46pm SteveF:

No - wanted to add to my play list ...will look for the cd now on line - new to your show - as of today....and love it...thanks ...you have a great ear, and I am always looking for new music - and your selections have been pleasantly surprising!!!!! Thanks!
  Mon. 11/28/11 2:49pm trrs:

Ah. I stand corrected.
Sad. still lovely that he remained so active in music for so long.
  Mon. 11/28/11 2:56pm Irene:

Glad to have you with us Steve! Glad to have everybody listening today. I'll be back with you next Monday at noon.
  Mon. 11/28/11 2:59pm Van in Dallas:

As always, wonderful show Irene. Really enjoyed it.
  Mon. 11/28/11 3:00pm SteveF:

Thanks...and will surely be back.
  Mon. 11/28/11 3:00pm SteveF:
