The most illicit of secrets

October 28, 2010

Mrs. Travers…confided a closely held secret: it is the sheep testicles that draw her most of all.


I’d make that face, too.

Eugene & Frances: Live! Tonight! Somewhat less than Sold Out!

October 7, 2010

Went to see the Vaselines last night, some photos taken by someone who isn’t me are here. Apparently not their first US tour. I got that wrong.

Crystal Stilts opened, that was not so great. I think girls do the Brand New Lo-Fi better than boys.

But the Vaselines – this was not some twee show like I expected. Three – count ’em, three! – guitars. Occasional use of a distortion pedal. It reminded me of Morrissey’s more recent, more muscular output since the Smiths dissolved. It seems that, if you were in a wuss rock (and I use that term with all due respect) band as a youth, you’re destined to find your inner Angus once you hit 40. Which isn’t so bad.

It’s strange to hear “Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam” live. Nirvana covered it very close to the original.
