One more Mering quote, because it's so damn good:

Quote:
You recorded a great version of Soft Machine's "A Certain Kind" for a single [TSN note: backed by a take on Fred Neil's "Everybody's Talkin'", which of course became one of Harry Nilsson's signature tunes]. Have you ever thought of doing a covers LP?

Oh wow! I love the cover song as a format. I would cover King Crimson, "Starless". That song - unbelievable. I would cover the Lemon Twigs. I would cover Julia Holter. I think what she does is just incredibly smart and brave. Who would be my dream collaborator? Paul McCartney. Totally. I'd love to have some crazy jam with the boomers before they die. It would be amazing to meet Robert Wyatt and Robert Fripp. The prog thing is strong with me. I just really appreciate that drama.

So... OK BOOMER, MOTHERFUCKERS!

“The prog thing is strong with me.“

Mad respect for that!

And thanks for the tip regarding the Soft Machine cover!

At Sarofim Hall of the Hobby Center for Performing Arts. Brought by the Society for the Performing Arts Houston.

Man it was a great show. He never backed away from the JAZZ baby, even when singing the prettiest Cole porter ballads. Great band, great drummer, and just super fucking fun, in this trying time.

The last gig I went to was around December time. Southern Spain; working class Leather production town, Ubrique. In what can only be described as a building the size of a shipping container, situated on the outskirts of town, up a mountain in a long since derelict abandoned area. This building unit being the last surviving establishment in a row of about six other buildings. There is no toilet and no structure to build taps.

The band was a punk tribute to Eskorbuto. At one point my partners friend took to the mic flanked by her two pitbulls, joint in hand and got a one woman mosh pit going in the middle of the ten strong crowd inside. I'd previously saw her perform flamenco style on the X factor to a good degree of critical success. Surrealistic. There was copious amounts of weed flowing throughout the day in all of the bars in the town centre thanks to Spains' liberated view on drugs, and lazy cops.

10/10 cuppers.

I'm currently watching the A2B2 Night of Fire e-festival, livestreaming mostly hyperpop (currently Alice Gas) on Twitch. Andy Morin, Laura Les, and Dorian Electra are the big headliners, with Sewerslvt and Ariel Pink also being on the bill.

The last gig I went to took place a month ago. Mit, the name of the artist.

I had spent the week checking the venue website to see if it was to be another cancelled show (Whispering Sons/Porridge Radio/Big Joanie had during that time morphed into Whispering Sons/Vox Low, then into Zombie Zombie/Vox Low/Cyril Cyril - and I was no longer interested - before being cancelled).

I was surprised to see that the Mit gig could occur and went to see what it'd be like.
It was windy by the sea. There weren't that many people out there at the doors. Mit was not the headliners, and they ain't big names either.
Eventually we came in, there seemed to be more staff behind the doors than audience.
I was the first to enter the place, and felt it seemed so small with the pit stacked with black folding chairs. Mask on my face, I sat down. The ranked scarcely filled in.
The show was good to me, except that I was sitting, and that it restricted my moving to the music. Mit played a new song that felt really good. As there were not too many people in the audience, the clapping and cheering sounded a bit hollow. Plus she wasn't the headliner.
When the headliner came in, it was more cheerful, even though I couldn't grasp why, since it quickly turned out that the blokes on stage, those wearing a guitar, had no idea what rhythm and melody meant. I turned my attention to a guy in the row before me. He was attempting some headbanging moves while being seated like the rest of us. I didn't like at all the music, but wasn't that pissed 'cause I had liked Mit.
This was her first show in quite a while. She felt it was odd too.
