Hey Evan, I won the tix to Brian Jonestown Massacre for last night. I went; it was fun (didn't stay the whole show as I brought a friend who was not into it and it was a pretty big show--I SO prefer smaller shows). But it was a fun night and I am truly greatful. Thanks, again!

Never enough Sparks. A go to band when radio is boring. 20+ albums and all worth a listen. Was listening to this own earlier, quite brilliant. www.youtube.com...

It’s like Sparks doesn’t age. They aged better that pretty much all of their peers.

Huh. I lived in not one, but two apartments right around the corner from where Le Poisson Rouge is. But that was a long time ago. Wonder what place it used to be when I lived there...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/6/17 10:08pm efd:

Julie I think maybe it was the Village Gate...? I seem to remember reading that once but I may well be mistaken.
  Wed. 9/6/17 10:09pm Julie M:

Yeah, I just looked it up. There's no reason to wonder with the internet.

Red fish, Jake! But maybe poison fish...

Thanks for the heads up on the Sparks show/s. Only ones ones on the east coast. Oct 11 sold out already. Got tix for the 10th.

Hi!
  Wed. 9/6/17 10:22pm Julie M:

Gotcha, Jake. I stand corrected. Although, why not Poisson D'Or?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/6/17 10:24pm JakeGould:

@JulieM: Why not just “The Goldfish?”
  Wed. 9/6/17 10:26pm Julie M:

Because then Evan could not do his excellent French pronunciation. Non?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/6/17 10:26pm JakeGould:

@JulieM: Yeah, when he says that it’s like I am in the middle of Paris wearing a striped shirt, beret and holding a fucking baguette.
Avatar Wed. 9/6/17 10:28pm Fuzzy:

When a plain old baguette just won't do.
  Wed. 9/6/17 10:31pm Julie M:

Ah, Le Poisson Rouge. Whatever color that fish is. I like this Jack Cooper cut, Evan.

thanks BLondon! I have a question for you, actually, regarding a certain song title!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/6/17 10:45pm efd:

of course, posing that question here will remove your cloak of relative anonymity.

My question is this: Why is this song called "Bedazzler"" on the album and "The Bedazzler" on the single?? :D

woooooooo!

  Wed. 9/6/17 10:55pm Julie M:

There are no words for the joy this song brings. Here that BLondon!
  Wed. 9/6/17 10:55pm Stevel:

efd is sooo easy to read.

Bedazzler is an amazing song. Is it not a huge commercial success?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/6/17 10:55pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Jake & medson! Got here just in time for "A Bedazzler" CD single.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/6/17 10:55pm Kat in Chicago:

In a better world, Stevel...
  Wed. 9/6/17 10:57pm BLondon:

Blame it on lack of communication and continuity as a band... or to confuse collectors and the people at MOJO magazine 20 years from now. :)
  Wed. 9/6/17 10:57pm Stevel:

It has everything. I actually do not love the title, but everything else is so good, I no longer care.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/6/17 10:57pm medson:

While were asking questions.
Is Midtown Sizzler available on Vinyl? Searching finds CD and Digital only
  Wed. 9/6/17 10:57pm BLondon:

I'm pretty sure STAG will play NYC in 2018. hopefully we can present it to you all in person.
  Wed. 9/6/17 10:58pm BLondon:

No vinyl as of now...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/6/17 10:59pm medson:

@BLondon thank you.
  Wed. 9/6/17 11:00pm Stevel:

BLondon: Consider a run to or through the Midwest. There, I asked! Such a cool song.

  Wed. 9/6/17 11:01pm BLondon:

I'd love to. I'm from Cleveland originally. Love to go play the Grog Shop or Beachland Ballroom!
  Wed. 9/6/17 11:03pm Julie M:

I've liked all of the Midtown Sizzler songs we've heard on this show. Thanks, Evan!
  Wed. 9/6/17 11:04pm BLondon:

I'm gonna try to make this show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/6/17 11:06pm JakeGould:

So is the title “Midtown Sizzler” about an actual Sizzler restaurant located in midtown Manhattan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/6/17 11:09pm Kat in Chicago:

Ha, quality false ending there
  Wed. 9/6/17 11:09pm Stevel:

Columbus Oh is a strong option, possibly Athens, OH. Ann Arbor, MI, Bloomington, IN, Madison, WI, all college towns. Also, of course, Detroit and Milwaukee and Chicago. Depends largely on what y'all are looking for!
  Wed. 9/6/17 11:28pm ἶkε:

That little spurt of blissful noise at the end of that Fresh & Onlys track was quite delicious. I need some more of that.

sadly blended with some glitchy/dirty cd noise!

unless that's the noise you were referring to...

I almost played the Machine version of this during the disco show, so figured I'd spin this one in the meantime!

I'm surprised I've never heard this version before.

also dug the kid creole version
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/6/17 11:38pm efd:

i kind of wish it weren't live but that's just my perverse anti-live bias.

plus what's up with a live version fading out?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/6/17 11:40pm Kat in Chicago:

not enough applause? idk. I don't much like live versions of band stuff on record either, most of the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/6/17 11:41pm efd:

maybe the full version was too long to fit on a single?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/6/17 11:41pm Kat in Chicago:

could be.
