Well, I'm writing the review so immediately after the show that last.fm still won't let me add a review and I'm doing it in 'notepad' to add later. Just 15 minutes walk down the road from my apartment, just strolled back with a nice vibe inside me, listening to 'Fun House' now.
Fucking thank you, Iggy, Mike, Ron and Scott. Fucking yeah. Fucking cool.
The only other time I saw Iggy Pop perform was in Moscow too, in 2002, at an outdoor, all-day, festival of music; Russian bands all day, and Iggy at the end, and then too, he was saying shit like 'fucking spasibo' ('thank you' in Russian) and tonight it was 'fucking zdravstvuite' (i.e. 'fucking hello') as well as plain, in English, 'fucking thankyou'.
Incidentally, that festival was the very same festival at which a year later there were terrorist suicide bomb attacks, which you might have seen on the news. I was at that festival (with my boss again (see below)) but the crowd was kept inside in ignorance…
16 Apr 2006, 03:27 by aurascapeSo I've been sitting here for a bit grooving to Anytime At All and I decided to do a little browsing about on the topic when I came across Stephen Perkins' Theory Of Banyan, a short, freely available (on archive.org) documentary by Kevin Ford that chronicles Banyan through the process of recording their 3 albums. Stephen Perkins (Janes Addiction, Porno for Pyros) provides the naration and commentary, and it features plenty of footage from the studio as well as live performance. Notable guest appearances include the likes of Mike Watt (Minutemen, fIREHOSE), Nels Cline (Wilco), Willie Waldman, John Frusciante (Red Hot Chili Peppers). (Actually guest appearances is wrong since with the exception of John, they were all the core of the band).
Anyways, I thought I would pass on the info for any of you that keyword stumble upon this journal.
13 Apr 2006, 13:57 by Robby-StandardHanging around in the RHCP's forum I came across a link to a youtube.com video showing John Frusciante jamming with the Banyan band. The song they were playing was the wonderful La Sirena. In the same thread someone posted a link to their myspace site. There I found some more of their beautiful songs for download.
So I advise you to check them out.
