Went to see the Ramonas in Stuttgart. Not too surprisingly, they covered lots of Ramones songs, plus playing some of their own songs. They were good, especially on the "not-so-typical songs" like "Poison Heart" or "Bonzo goes to Bitburg (My brain is hangin' upside down)"! Support band called "Problem System" was not bad at all.
Met some people I know, some of 'em had quite long journeys (wearing Ramonas t-shirts, no suprise here)!  :o

It is with extreme sadness we announce the passing of the legendary Barrie Masters.

As you can expect, this sudden news is a huge shock to the band and family.

We welcome tributes posted to our Facebook and Twitter sites which will be passed on to Barrie's family. More news will follow.

Her new volume, Year of the Monkey, is an incantatory, ambulatory travelogue spun from a notebook entry on New Year’s Day 2016, a few hours after playing a gig at the Fillmore in San Francisco. It reflects more than a hint of life on the road as a rockstar – morning after morning in motel rooms, endless cravings for grits and black coffee, fruitless journeys to diners not yet opened. In Just Kids Smith points out that she and Mapplethorpe’s obsessions were art and food.

“I spend a lot of time on my own,” she tells me, “so that’s the little touchstone – where you’re going to have your coffee, where you’re going to have lunch. When I’m by myself, sometimes days go by and the only people I talk to are shopkeepers or café owners. That’s why it’s nice, if you have a café where they’re used to you, and a little bit of social engagement. But I’m not very social, so it doesn’t really bother me not to have social engagement.”

Her habits as revealed in the book – she has conversations with inanimate objects – bear the marks of an introvert. “I’m just not social – it’s a little different,” she says. “I’m not shy, I just find it difficult in social situations. Sometimes all I want to do is escape – I was like that as a child, Thanksgiving dinner with a bunch of relatives, I just wanted to high-tail it out of there. It’s no judgement on anybody.”

I asked Tim about him and he said that he was a lovely, helpful guy and that's why they also asked him to produce their second single.

Thanx Fred, for getting us this exlusive statement.  8)

Distance, Light & Sky were wonderful last night. Most songs are introspective, 2 acoustic guitars, 2 voices (male/female which blend in well together) and drums. I was at the far end from the drummer, so to me he was "distance", Chris Eckman was the "light" (despite some rather "dark" songs he wrote at times) and Chantal Acda with her clear voice was the bright blue "sky".  :)

You can almost see me in the pic, I must be in the dark place beneath the photographer.  :P

P.S. it came to my mind that it's now 25 years since I first saw Chris Eckman live (w/ The Walkabouts), so things have come "full circle" in a way.  8)
