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.

In reverse of the singer, fontina cheese is the real deal, fontella is a derivative.

Peter Cook was jealous of Dudley Moore's sexual conquests, as well as Dud's awesome musical talent.

Fontinella is a kind of cheese. So.. "Fontinella Bass"? That could be some kinda crazy seafood dish. Might need the amazing new Bass-o-matic to prepare it.

He puts on a great show. Have you seen him before, Shangri-Lounge? It's very fun. He'll come back around and you'll have a great time.

I did a little tribute show to him maybe 6 months ago, or so? He's one of my favs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm

I've only seen a handful of times, but it's always great. I came very close to an interview once, in 2005 or so, but he was delayed getting to PDX, and couldn't afford the time. One of these days...

shangri-lounge:

One of the last few times I saw him, he actually did 'Hospital" - seemed like a pretty rare moment.
Avatar 7:05pm
Mr Fab:

Wow, he almost never plays Modern Lovers stuff. And a dark song like "Hospital" is def a strange choice.
Avatar 7:07pm
shangri-lounge:

I think he was feeling sentimental, perhaps because he was in NYC. He told a little aside about the girl the song was about.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm
Austin Rich:

I think I saw him do "Pablo Picasso" once... I feel like he did something from a later Modern Lovers album, but that's about it. Certainly I would love a set of OG stuff but I think I would have to be older.
