Here it is, boys and girls. Here’s the first song of the first set of the first show. As always – crank it, and enjoy.
As you know I’m a sucker for insider studio stuff. Here’s a cool (and short!) video with Butch Vig talking about recording Nirvana’s “In Bloom.” I think it’s interesting how much Kurt basically deplored slick studio production tricks. Whereas others, um, depend on them whenever possible. For the kids out there unfamiliar with Nirvana – the voice of God channeled through some idiot kid in a flannel, w/ a cool Fender jaguar, flashed briefly for a few years on the strength of a Pixies ripoff and poof he was gone, leaving a big sad lifelong hole in the hearts of admirers. His drummer grew up and became Dave Grohl.
Heads up – Launch Day The Live Band is playing the O.C. Tavern in San Clemente Fri Aug 20 at 8:30. And as if it couldn’t get any better – Free stage cupcakes to the first 10 peeps to shout the name of their favorite Anaheim Angel. Or “Rex Hudler.” Also the word “moist.”
