Be shaken. Be stirred. A whimsical wham-bam of exotic enchantments, sleazy oddities, pop fancies, and swingin’ slingers broadcast from Ridgewood, NYC’s very own Shangri-Lounge. Best served chilled, garnished with signature swizzle schtick.

Then first time Chresti ever came over my house, she dropped the first Modern Lovers record on a pile of cinder blocks and scratched Old World. That was in 1983, now she's in the kitchen trying to recover from having a flat tire in the sun.

i saw him once, and he didn't play any old Modern Lovers stuff. Does he now?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm
Franco Twinkie:

I saw him on my twenty fifth birthday at The Roxy in L.A. that was in 1980. When he did I'm A Little Dinosaur, he got on his hands and knees and wiggled his ass at the audience.
Avatar 6:13pm
shangri-lounge:

Oh yeah, he doesn't really play older tunes much.
Avatar 6:14pm
shangri-lounge:

One of the times I saw him he did play "Hospital," and it made my life complete. Perhaps he was feeling nostalgic.
Avatar 6:14pm
shangri-lounge:

He does always play "Egyptian Reggae" at least.

Pauly, espresso was an hour ago, rising sun is about to shine onto Gus's sun lounge. Slowly warming from 2 Celsius.

A friend told me when his band played with Jonathan, he was a pot smoking maniac who was threating to kick some ones ass.

But having said that, I love his candor. In some documentary about early punk, he talks about going to The Museum of Fine Art in Boston to try and hook girls in tall boots and suede jackets. I mean fuck Cezanne, what's really important you know? Girls, that's what.
