Hey All, man did this week go fast or what? I feel like I just cleaned up last weeks' show! Is Nick Cave here this weekend? I kinda shrugged it off (he said apologetically) . Going through the same thing with the upcoming Neil Young tour. never saw him either.
Avatar 3:17am Andy in Berlin:

@ Bill - I never saw Neil Young either but once spent a pretty tense New Year's Eve with Crazyhorse when the truck broke down.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17am Fran:

Nick Cave always a good show. Neil Young is like Van Morrison - you don't know if you'll get cranky or cranked up to 11!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09am Fran:

High Llamas - excellent stuff and another favourite! Reminds me of a previous trip to NYC when I saw them at the now disappeared Fez venue which was near Tower/Other Music
Avatar 4:10am Bill Mac:

I still find it odd that we reminisce about 90s bands. I got the new Bats retrospective up next. hard to believe this stuff is 25 years old.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11am Guido from Cologne:

No! Spontanous flash of thought. Ken shall not dare even consider! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13am Fran:

The Bats yes and I got The Spies and equally it sounds fresh
Avatar 4:15am Bill Mac:

I didn't pay much attention to theses bands when they came up. This is good stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19am Fran:

The 80's and 90's New Zealand scene - Flying Nun label stuff is wonderful - jangly psychedelia stuff like the Bats, more experimental pop and out there wonders like The Dead C.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21am Fran:

There's a great overview compilation of Flying Nun called Tally Ho!

Avatar 4:39am Bill Mac:

@ Fran Really? You're a font of the unexpected....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41am Fran:

Yes Ken Pustelnik - never a popular choice of t-shirt or badge at the Merch stall - 'I love Ken Pustelnik' as opposed to someone with a shorter and easier name took some explaining in the cooler parts of town I guess?
Avatar 4:42am Bill Mac:

@Andy The Whitest is a chapter in my book? Should be the title of the book!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42am Guido from Cologne:

How was personal connection of Tony McPhee and Jimi Hendrix. Vaguely remember there was one. But haha ... Current93 is a good idea ...
... Shirley Collins (also Current93-colaborating legend) on next show ...

Rex Stardust, lead electric triangle with Toad the Wet Sprocket has had to have an elbow removed following their recent successful worldwide tour of Finland. Flamboyant ambidextrous Rex apparently fell off the back of a motorcycle. “Fell off the back of a motorcyclist, most likely,” quipped ace drummer Jumbo McCluney upon hearing of the accident. Plans are already afoot for a major tour of Iceland.

Dead Monkeys are to split up again, according to their manager, Lefty Goldblatt. They’ve been in the business now ten years, nine as other groups. Originally the Dead Salmon, they became for a while, Trout. Then Fried Trout, then Poached Trout In A White Wine Sauce, and finally, Herring. Splitting up for nearly a month, they re-formed as Red Herring, which became Dead Herring for a while, and then Dead Loss, which reflected the current state of the group. Splitting up again to get their heads together, they reformed a fortnight later as Heads Together, a tight little name which lasted them through a difficult period when their drummer was suspected of suffering from death. It turned out to be only a rumor and they became Dead Together, then Dead Gear, which lead to Dead Donkeys, Lead Donkeys, and the inevitable split up. After nearly ten days, they reformed again as Sole Manier, then Dead Sole, Rock Cod, Turbot, Haddock, White Baith, the Places, Fish, Bream, Mackerel, Salmon, Poached Salmon, Poached Salmon In A White Wine Sauce, Salmon-monia, and Helen Shapiro. This last name, their favorite, had to be dropped following an injunction and they split up again. When they reformed after a recordbreaking two days, they ditched the fishy references and became Dead Monkeys, a name which they stuck with for the rest of their careers. Now, a fortnight later, they’ve finally split up.

[This paragraph is in the original, in between the other two paragraphs, but not in the YouTube clip version above.] [--Divorced after only eight minutes, popular television singing star, Charisma, changed her mind on the way out of the registry office, when she realized she had married one of the Donkeys by mistake. The evening before in LA's glittering nightspot, the Abitoir, she had proposed to drummer Reg Abbot of Blind Drunk, after a whirlwind romance and a knee-trembler. But when the hangover lifted, it was Keith Sly of the Donkeys who was on her arm in the registry office. Keith, who was too ill to notice, remained unsteady during thes thrt ceremony and when asked to exchange vows, began to recite names and addresses of people who also used the stuff. Charisma spotted the error as Keith was being carried into the wedding ambulance and became emotionally upset. However, the mistake was soon cleared up, and she stayed long enough to consummate their divorce.--]

Lived in SantaBarbara, CA many years - where John Cleese does also ('I'm old now, & I don't know if you've heard, but England is very rainy & grey'...) - & the Borders there was very large & I'd dwell in the Astrology section often. Well - there was Cleese one day - someone already fawning over him as I approached (Clease bearing it w/ perfect polite British discomfort) - which was fortunate as it spared me doing the same. So I just starting convo 'casually', expounding on how he & I are both Scorpio Rabbits - & how every episode of Faulty Towers is someone trying to be in control & comfortable - Rabbit - but ends up w/ him erupting - Scorpio
- & he in inimitable Cleese fashion said - 'Oh - Chinese Year?' - Yeah - (& you must imagine Cleese voice) - 'Wasn't sure where the *Rabbit* came from!'...

Final performance Jul 20, beamed into a cinema near you in the USA. Wow.

I was told a long time ago that you're either on the bus or off the bus.
In fact I was sitting on the roof of the bus (literally and metaphorically)

Though the world is so full of a number things,
I know we should all be as happy as
But are we?
No, definitely no, positively no.
Decidedly no. Mm mm.
Short people have long faces and
Long people have short faces.
Big people have little humor
And little people have no humor at all!
And in the words of that immortal buddy
Samuel J. Snodgrass, as he was about to be lead
To the guillotine:
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Don't you know everyone wants to laugh?
(Ha ha!)
My dad said "Be an actor, my son
But be a comical one
They'll be standing in lines
For those old honky tonk monkeyshines"
Now you could study Shakespeare and be quite elite
And you can charm the critics and have nothin' to eat
Just slip on a banana peel
The world's at your feet
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em...
Make 'em laugh
Don't you know everyone wants to laugh
My grandpa said go out and tell 'em a joke
But give it plenty of hoke
Make 'em roar
Make 'em scream
Take a fall
But a wall
Split a seam
You start off by pretending
You're a dancer with grace
You wiggle 'till they're
Giggling all over the place
And then you get a great big custard pie in the face
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Don't you know... all the...wants..?
My dad...
They'll be standing in lines
For those old honky tonk monkeyshines
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Don't you know everyone wants to laugh?
Ah ha ha ha ha ha há
Ah ha ha ha ha ha
Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Make 'em laugh, ah ah!
Make 'em laugh, ah ah!
Make 'em laugh, ah ah!
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh
Make 'em laugh!

Sparse participation this morning. Busy keeping guests happy.
You can't have everything all the time but good vibes emanating, though.
All the best to you. Bill and all old honky tonk monkeyshines.
