I heard RH & VOs at CBGBs on 4th of July weekend in 1977 (or maybe it was 78). I remembered they played a particularly inspired version of I'm Free. Robert Quine's solo still burns in my brain after all these years.

So I know Robert Quine used to make extraordinary mixed cassettes arranged according to his particular methodology. My friend Emily got a few of them back in the day, They are floating around NY but someone needs to digitize and archive/post them. I would volunteer to do the lifting if anyone knows how to round some of them up. Who's got ONE?

Stevel: He made cassettes for his friends, not of his tunes but I understand to illustrate some musical point, like musical signatures quoted over time as one example.

Of course Quine also made all those early live V.U. recordings on portable cassette that later were issued as "The Quine Tapes" or some similar name.

Richard Hell came into Midnight Records on 23rd when I worked there. Upon seeing The Heartbreakers' “Live at Mothers,” which has him on the cover, in a bin on the wall, he grabbed the dozen copies and started to walk out. JD Martignon ran out of the back room, jumped on Richard’s back (looked like an R. Crumb cartoon) and yelled, “Give those back!” An argument ensued. JD got the records and Richard left. He then returned 5 minutes later and said to me, “I’m sorry about that. Your boss is an (expletive) though.”

Pretty sure I'm buying this version. What he said he wanted is what I can hear!

Yes. Very straight across kinda guy.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:31pm Paulie B:

I worked at Midnight as well! JD was quite a character.
  4:31pm Morgan:

aw he shouldn’t have regrets
  🎸 4:32pm Cacophone Jeff:

@Todd. Yes! There's pictures of you with Screamin' Jay & others, right?

I'll never forget that image in my head of JD riding Richard Hell while he screamed at him, and the fact that Richard Hell, a longtime hero of mine, actually spoke to me!
  4:33pm Hyperskee:

Great job Todd ..Hell is an icon ..anyone who rubs with JT ..Ramones ..Stiv is RnR royalty...
  🎸 4:33pm Cacophone Jeff:

@Stevel, yes, early '90s.
Avatar 4:35pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Cacophone Jeff: Yes, that photo was from Irving Plaza. I think that night was actually a release party for The Midnight Records X-Mess album...which is what Jay was wanting to get paid for at the store!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Stevel:

This remix reminds me of the BOwie vs. older-Iggy Raw Power remixes. Amazingly different. Bowie loved Iggy and put the vocals very much at the front, which was not uncommon in popular music. It had no feeling of being created by four guys, as Mr. Hell mentioned earlier.
  4:36pm Hyperskee:

Saw Richard Hell and the Voidoids ...on the edge of Alphabet city. Ave A & 2nd St ?? ...82.. 83 ? Me don't remember. . Anyone know the name of the club ??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Stevel:

"Riding Richard Hell: The JD story"
  🎸 4:37pm Cacophone Jeff:

@Paulie B: When did you work at Midnight? I was there for a few years in the early '90s. Tons of great stories about JD and others. It was a crazy place.

Wow. Frissel and Marc Ribot.

Seriously - Quine, Frissel - game over.

saw ya @ cb’s w/ that band as well

Serious question: Richard grew up in Kentucky. Why does he have a slight English accent..?

Great interview thanks TOPT
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:09pm MonicaC:

That was great, Todd. You gave him so much space to express himself, which clearly was difficult at times.
  🎸 5:10pm Cacophone Jeff:

Hi @Joe B: Right there with you. I just don't get it?! Never cease to be amazed by it, and here of all places?!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:10pm Paulie B:

@Cacophone Jeff: Sorry for the late response. I worked there around 2000-01. I remember Robert Quine actually came in once. He and JD were very friendly!!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:10pm Franco Twinkie:

Thank you! Made this rainy day extra special. Richard Hell and a bowl of fresh hot beans - PERFECT!
  🎸 5:10pm Cacophone Jeff:

Fantastic interview, Todd! Thank you so much, as always!
  5:10pm SEAN:

I'm gonna have to go back and listen to it a 2nd time to get it all.

Digging the interview & music TOPT whooooo!
Avatar 5:11pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Glad you dug it...I have enjoyed both my conversations with Richard.
  🎸 5:12pm Cacophone Jeff:

@Paulie B: No prob. Thanks for the response. Yes, I remember Robert Quine coming in often. He was a super nice guy from my interactions with him... I was there often in the 2000s, but as a customer at that point. Sure we saw each other.
  5:13pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Great one today, boo.
Avatar 5:13pm Joe B:

Jeff that story reminds me of that Neil Young video where he takes the CSNY bootleg out of the store, did you ever see that?
Avatar 🎸 5:13pm james from witches' corner:

Wow, great interview, Todd. Cheers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm McGroovey:

The Voidoids set is cheaper on the Omnivore website that on Amazon (or maybe the same price, with shipping), but Buy button doesn't work. I guess I have to buy it from Amazon?

Tremendous, info-packed interview, thanks Todd!! McGroove, maybe Tunes has it, as they did have the Omnivore- released new Matthew Sweet (who also employed Quine, of course). Hey Jeff, Mike Sin, Cheryl!
  🎸 5:20pm Cacophone Jeff:

@Joe B: I haven't. I'll look it up. Thanks!... I do know that Peter Grant was famous for doing that with Zepplin bootlegs he found in record stores.

@Cacophone Jeff: Well I believe Peter Grant got his start in pro wrestling so that isn't surprising.

Dear Miss Lonely Hearts sounds better coming out of my radio than it does on my stereo. I hate the stupid '80s way-too-synthetic drum sound.

Howdy EFD! I was in that train station record store a couple of years ago and thought, "oh there's a used copy of that artist I heard on WFMU, I'll buy it." Turns out it was Nic Armstrong, not Nick Waterhouse but, still pretty good.
