Noah article and photos:
  9:51am morphe':

Noah(Ontario,Can) quote is painful:

"...The early days of the cover bands in local bars and clubs was a very exciting time for us. Packed dance floors and fans that would follow us around for miles! But, after we became Noah doing our original show, the bar crowds weren’t very interested in us. Area clubs were not interested in original bands. After we had worked so hard on the album we couldn’t find work. After doing a few shows we went back to doing cover tunes under the name “Thanks”.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57am Baja Joe:

@morphe, anybody have "a way around" the NYT subscription mandate?- try Chrome "Archive Page" extension.
  10:01am morphe':

Thanks Baja !!!
Must go out .. Thanks TD and all !!!!

Good morning Tom and everybody! Happy snow day from Brooklyn! Loved that track from The Cry...everything I've heard of Heroes of the Night has been so good.

Is Calvin a Bay Area dude?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14am TomDash:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14am TomDash:

hey Lord Jimz...not sure, although Black jazz was based out of Oakland...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15am sphere:

good morning. in a world with Bandcamp, why does anything sell out? sigh.
  10:18am Lord Jimz:

Thanks Tom Dash-
I thought he was around the Bay Area in the 80's when I was there.
Don and Joe were def there at that period in time...
  10:19am Lord Jimz:

Great show, Broheemzlingtonians!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21am TomDash:

So we all have until April 3rd to see American Utopia on B-way...I'm putting it on my list. Love Naive Melody, and I've only heard great things about the show. I gotta "dash" (heh...sorry, couldn't resist), but thanks so much, Tom! Love your show! Have great weekends, everyone!
Avatar 👻 11:25am Listener Jonny in South Central... (Ohio):

I saw David Byrne at The Ryman in Nashville in 2001, and they played what remains my favorite version of "This Must Be The Place". Drums, bass, vibraphone and string section.

Tom, was it the full version. I saw it over the holidays and it was an "unchained" performance missing some of the band. Still was an amazing show.

Hey, this is a daily occurrence in this house! Props to WFMU and Mr. Dash.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51am TomDash:

hey @ratso - seemed like the full version of the band to me - I saw the HBO film of the performance and it was the same crew I believe...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am YETI BOB:

What? While I was out at the coffeeshop Tom played a song from the "classic" Gang of Four that I've never heard before?? (And the cofffeeshop was playing a dreadful 90s rock mix, sigh)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55am YETI BOB:

Go4 were HUGE for me growing up, one of the first live shows I ever saw (after the Ramones and Buzzcocks). Will have to check out this box set.
