Avatar Thu. 9/3/15 9:12am pierre:

They play in Paris with "Shadowland" the last part of a trilogy that I havent heard much about, but I love the band, but the tickets are also pretty expensive, so I was hoping some of you might have some insights (?)

Pierre: I saw a fairly recent Residents show (WOW Tour) and really for only the fact that they don't get up my way often, I figured it might be my last chance to see them without hitting the road. I have to say I didn't find it that great, myself. I don't really dig where their live show is coming from - the Randy thing. I just don't get it. Sorry to say - I'm a huge Rez fan and have been for many decades.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/3/15 9:19am Scott Williams:

@pierre, I've only seen them once, on the Demons Dance Alone tour (2002?). Very, uhh.... theatrical. Almost Broadway, a little corny. but a very immersive experience; maybe worth it because I love them too. Well, "Him", at this point. I wouldn't spend a lotta $$ on it tho.

Thank you all for your advice ! They are playing the documentary, so there is that already.
And, I don't know, would 40$ represent a lot of money for it ? (regarding that it's more 80 since i would invite my girlfriend )

That's pretty much it in a nutshell. Wow.

@Rev Forever Changes is still a wonderment. Hardly any electric apart from bass and a few guitar breaks.

Very different sound from Jimmy Bryant here.

The ice cream place I went to last night had a mad concoction called Graham Central Station. I bet they didn't license that name.

@Brian: Good idea, Brian, thanks for reminding me!
Avatar Thu. 9/3/15 10:50am Cecile:

they probably didn't even know it was a band.

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, she still is. Causing some controversy in the GLBT community.

She is very conflicted internally about her bisexuality, it reads to me.
Avatar Thu. 9/3/15 11:07am Cecile:

and I guess for people who followed her for years, about 10 years ago she stopped giving interviews at all to the gay indie press.

A song, "My Summer is Gone," by Gilbert Gibson, appears in the July-December 1963 catalog of copyright registrations published by the Copyright Office of the Library of Congress. Gibson was apparently South African, and the song's title in Afrikaans is "Daar ver in die blou." Same song?
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/3/15 11:20am Joe McG:

Thanks for the detective work, Dean! I think mid-60s sounds about right.

Dean Can you find my keys?

@Brian in UK: Sure. Where'd you leave 'em?
Avatar Thu. 9/3/15 11:26am Cecile:

oh, Joe, do you have the Upper Midwest set from Dust to Digital. I bought it, only listened to one disc, but it's great.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/3/15 11:27am Brian in UK:

Somewhere in the house.
Avatar Thu. 9/3/15 11:27am FernandoBelmondo:

Hello Joe and everybody! Fantastic show today. You always makes thursday mornings feels better.
Avatar Thu. 9/3/15 11:27am Cecile:

Listening to it, I figure the Upper Midwest accent also owes something to an Irish accent as well. And there is a Finnish magic spell on it! Also, some good fiddling. Can't wait to get to the rest.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/3/15 11:29am Joe McG:

Many thanks, Fernando!

Terry Melcher! Byrds related.

Also managed Paul Revere and the Raiders. Doris Day is his mom. In the most sad part, Manson sent his troops to Melcher's house for rejecting his demos, but he'd since moved.

Dando Shaft...that's another LP I sold ;)
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/3/15 11:47am KP:

Best version of "These Days" is Tammy Sue Starlight's impression of Nico's. I think Nico's might have been the first.
