I saw Aerosmith twice, in 1989 and 1993.


We saw Aerosmith on their first visit to the UK. They played Reading Festival and were booed off the stage, with beer cans filled with urine being thrown at them.


1977 ?
That was a bad year for them at festivals all over the States too.
They were at the height of their substance abuse then. Only four years into their recording career, too. It took ten years to clean up and get back on track.

It was a GALLON container full of used beer that smacked me on the back of the head at Reading 87, also ten years later, that lead me to have a year off festivals in '88, try Glasto in '89 and '90, and wind up in Cropredy later in '90.

Funny how things work out.


It was indeed 1977.

The beer cans filled with urine included Party Sevens.

New album from Julianne and Tim (All About Eve).  It's rather gorgeous...  Digital only so far.

It is rather lovely.

There's a Christmas single floating around too that'll be nice again in about 6 months time.

Reading 87 was good fun on the whole. 88 was a terrible, terrible festival.

My tall friend Simon and I used to stand back to back during the intervals between sets, so we could fend off projectiles at 80s festivals...

I just discovered them by way of a conversation with a much younger person, a few weeks ago.   There's a Richard Brautigan connection, apparently.

Tudor Lodge  :  It All Comes Back  (Scenescof  CD, 1998).

This is a nice collection of outtakes, acetates  etc. Not always the best audio, but very well mastered and listenable.

Linda Thompson completists might be interested  to know she appears on 4 tracks.

They are marvellous. Saw them at Beautiful Days quite recently - interesting blend of punk-pop interspersed with down to earth tales of wife and husband domesticity.

There was an interview on 6music very recently too (Chris Hawkins I think) that should be on BBC Sounds.

String Driven Thing : The Machine that Cried (Esoteric CD,  2012).

This is rather good, although the CD sounds  somewhat bright.  Interesting  sleeve essay.  SDT were another band who had stuff to offer but never quite got the credit they deserved.

One old, one new-

'Dangerous' Don Rich & The Buckaroos-Country Pickin' The Don Rich Anthology.
At Christmas I got the Bear Family Bakersfield Sound boxset. Don was the bandleader, guitarist, fiddle player, and harmony singer with Buck Owens until a motorcycle accident killed him at a young age. Though I loved the classic Buck Owens stuff already, I didn't know much about Don, but he was arguably the star of the set, both in the number of photos of his always smiling presence, but for his musical skills which were on many of the other artists in the Buck Owens empire. I bought this one because it features him on lead vocals, but also let his fiddle work shine.

Kaia Kater-Strange Medicine- released just last Thursday. For those who may not be familiar, Kaia is a Canadian singer songwriter, and talented banjo player. At a record fair a few years ago, I was struck by the vibrant sight of her previous album 'Grenades' and bought it on the spot. After just a few listens, this effort really expands exponentially from Grenades however. Mostly minimalistic music, along with Kaia's unique phrasing vocally and well crafted songs makes for a beautiful and original listen. Attached is her song 'The Internet' which I think is really provocative.

Love them. Saw them get 6 encores once in the seventies.

 "Out Of The Rain", the new album from Blair Dunlop.

Another seriously good set of songs from Blair - I've been following his musical career since 2009, and he continues to make excellent albums. This, his 5th studio effort, shows a natural maturity and progression and an even more electric sound than previously, well worth a listen.

Hi Dan, I saw him at Magpies Fest last year. Excellent new songs , presentation etc. I was surprised at how much he had developed.

Uncut are claiming this month Heijra is Joni's finest album, they're wrong it's Hissing Of Summer Lawns (I also have a soft spot for that double live album Sound And Sight?).

Shadows and Light.
Hissing and Shadows were my entry point to Joni...and also Jaco and and Pat Metheny.
I went backwards from there, and then forwards up to Don Juan's.
Before moving onto Mingus, I wanted to listen to his own stuff first, so I bought a classic albums set, but have yet to get round to listening to it.
I have a couple of later tracks on Hits and Dreamland.

I'd say....ALL of Joni's albums are her best.

Agreed, her albums are small in number but all just perfect.
