Steve Shelley interviewer Charlie Watts

 “Steve Shelley: Hi. This is Steve Shelley.

Charlie Watts: Oh hello.

Steve. So I’m very excited to speak to you. I’m not a journalist; I’m another drummer.

Charlie: Yeah, so I heard.

Steve: I’ve been trying to do some research and write some notes, but hopefully we can just sort of let it go and do some talking. I’ve been listening to the new record—

Charlie: Oh?

Steve: —and I think it’s really great. To me, it’s a real late night record.

Charlie: Oh, that’s okay.

Steve: And sort of along the lines with Frank Sinatra, Sings for Only The Lonely—

Charlie: Yeah, right.

Steve: —or Dinah Washington.

Charlie: Yeah.

Steve: I was wondering about the recording of this album. Did you record it sort of old style or was it very modern techniques that you used?”

Charlie: Oh. I don’t know. I don’t know anything about modern techniques. We’re all in the same room and played it live."

Næste Klub Soja. Hernia og Whistler

”HERNIA (københavner-debut) spiller nostalgisk og støjende ‘alternative’ rock / power‐pop med flydende guitarer og vokalmelodier koblet med rastløse, hurtige trommer. Inspirationen stammer fra 80'er/90'er guitarbands som Hüsker Dü, Dinosaur Jr. og Nirvana. HERNIA blev til under et ophold i Australien i 2020, hvor Malte Hill, den tidligere frontfigur fra det danske punk-rock fænomen Molly, besøgte sine venner fra Dune Rats. Det pludselige udbrud af Covid‐19 vendte op og ned på Maltes tur, og han måtte til sidst tilbringe 10 dage i isolation. Så med alt den uventede tid til rådighed begyndte han at skrive og optage, og således kom HERNIAs debut‐EP til verden i et lille skur i Berrara, New South Wales.

De øvrige medlemmer af HERNIA har også bagkataloget i orden: Mads Folmer (Halshug, Bleeder, mv.), Karsten Dines (Strawberry Slaughterhouse, Vomit Supreme, Horrorpops) og Tobias Elmsdal (Molly, De Rå mv.)

WHISTLER spiller akut tilfredsstillende poprock, musik til den øjeblikkelige nutid, centreret om sanger og sangskriver Louis Scherfigs tekster. Vi kommer omkring temaer som science fiction, virkelighedens hierarkier, tyngdekraft, sociale spændinger, kærlighed og andre metafysiske problemer.

WHISTLER blev dannet i 2019 og udgav sidste år debutpladen ‘Blow Torch Social’ på Part Time Records – en plade kendetegnet ved melodisk og lyrisk fremdrift. Opfølgeren til ‘Blow Torch Social’ er indspillet og forventes ude tidligt i 2022.”

“Say It Loud! I’m A Deadhead And Proud!” Svar på tiltale…

“Someone sent me a copy of your Grateful Dead review. (in which BAM contributor Mark Levition wrote, “So-called adventuresome people who dig Black Flag probably wouldn’t be caught alive at a Grateful Dead concert.” I saw that Grateful show in Irvine!. I’ve also seen them three times in Oakland and once in San Diego since the Irvine show. I’ve also seen them many times in past years. The Dead is my favorite band.

What we find is that there are Dead fans at show outside of California. California’s music scene is remarkably segmented. Bands like Black Flag and the Dead draw all kinds of music fans to performances outside of California. But maybe things are changing. I saw some Black Flag shirts at the San Diego show.

I feel that in terms of approach and music the Dead have been a big influence on Black Flag from the beginning. We love the Dead. Glad that you do too!

"Tripping Out On The New Psychedelia"


"David Roback, guitarist and singer for the Rain Parade, suddenly grew testy as he sat in a West Hollywood restaurant.

“We have got nothing to do with 1965, damn it”, he shouted, slapping his right hand on the table. Pausing, he added, “We’re 1971 all the way.”

 With that, he broke into laughter.

Picking up Roback’s cue, fellow Rain Parade member Matthew Piucci said, “Yeah we’ll be doing several Slade covers.”

The two musicians were making light in the line of questioning, but underneat the banter, they were also showing their impatience with the theme at hand: Is there a ‘60s revival going on in Los Angeles rock?

Like other young bands in Los Angeles, Rain Parade has been identified as part of a burgeoning “scene within a scene” here. The attention stems from the rise of a group of bands that draw upon the music (and, in a few cases, the fashions) of the middle and late ‘60s in honing their own post-punk styles.

Billboard magazine even speculated recently that this “new psychedelia” could be the next big thing after techno-pop runs its commercial course.

So you’d think the groups would be excited about all that talk that’s being generated.

Wrong.

“That revivalist label is belittling”, said the Bangles’ Vicki Peterson. “It implies that we are taking stuff that has already been done and just trying to bring it back and call it our own. That’s not what we’re trying to do. We’re writing songs that mean something to us now in the ‘80s”

Agreed Matthew Piucci: “Revivalism implies intent, and I think that’s extremely misconstrued. Songwriters reject the notion of an intent to bring back something that’s already happened. We’re not trying to bring back paisley shirts and Nehru jackets.”

Snapped Dream Syndicate’s Steve Wynn, “If you’re going to insist on repeating history, you’re going to be obsolete in a hurry.”

If what’s going on in Los Angeles isn’t a revival, then what is it?

The consensus among the musicians involved is that a small, tightly knit group of friends and associates - all roughly contemporary in age, all raised on ‘60s radio and records, and all developing songwriters - has evolved in the city.

The “paisley underground” or “psychedelic revival,” as it’s often termed, encompasses a variety of ‘60s styles. Echoes of the era can be heard on a number of new local albums and Eps: the Doorsy organ sound of Green on Red, the trippy “baroque pop” of the Three O’Clock, the Pink Floydian drones of the Rain Parade, the country rock of the Long Ryders and garage grunge of the Unclaimed (See Craig Lee’s commentary, Page 84). Dream Syndicate, whose sound hearkens back to the Velvet Underground and the rocking Bob Dylan, and the all-girl Bangles, whose pop harmonies spin off from the Mamas and the Papas and the Beatles, will have new albums out after the turn of the year.

If these individual projects aren’t enough to confirm the presence of a revival, there is also a new collaborative album, “Rainy Day”, that could be the best evidence of the phenomenon. Produced by Roback, the LP consists of acoustic versions of familiar and obscure songs by the leading lights of ‘60s rock - Dylan, Lou Reed, the who, the Byrds, Jimi Hendrix and others - performed by a who’s who og these “paisley punks”, including members of the Bangels, the Rain Parade, the Three O’Clock and Dream Syndicate.

On the evolution of the movement, the long Ryders’ Sid Griffin observed: “There was a social scene going before any of these people were in bands to speak of. When you’re palying this type of music in L.A., sooner or later your paths will cross.”

Indeed, only a couple of the musicians knew each other before they started playing in bands. Roback and Susanna Hoffs grew up together in Northern California, but they are the exception to the the rule.

Most of the musicians met by chance: Steve Wynn and the members of Green on Red and the Rain Parade found themselves together at the Rains Parade’s first show at the Cathay de Grande, and the Bangles and the Three O’Clock (then known as the Salvation Army) shared several club dates.

Musical collaborations naturally followed. Wynn and Griffin were partnered in an embryonic version of the Long Ryders, and Piucci joined Green on Red for four months during a Rain Parade hiatus. The most obvious byproduct of these extracurricular friendships was the “Rainy Day” project.

“The album is unrehearsed performances of the favorite songs of myself and some of my friends,” Roback said. “There’s no reason why anyone should be limited to working in their own band. I felt, ‘Why not work with other people for the pure fun og it?’ ”

The unpolished, campfire-singalong atmosphere of “Rainy Day” typifies these young performers’ affection for the songs of the’60s - the linchpin that bonds their stylistically diverse groups together. The Band members - almost all of whom are in their early to middle 20s - grew up on the radio of the decade, and those long-ago sounds have fueled their own songwriting.

“We were all like 10 years old or younger during the ‘60s”, said Dan Stuart, the 22-year-oldsinger-guitarist for Green on Red. “Am radio back then was fantastic - ‘Pushing Too Hard’, followed by the Kinks, followed by the Doors. What you hear subliminally as a kid comes out later, when you’re trying to write what’s in your heart and soul.”

Indeed, the scene’s emphasis is original writing - writing that, as evidenced by the new songs of Steve wynn, the Bangles and others, is becoming increasingly less dependent on imitation.

“Most of the bands will eventually do more than just paraphrase the ’Nuggets’ album,” Wynn said, referring to a seminal collection of ‘60s garage-punk songs. “Every local band has one or two good songwriters.”

Added Griffin, who at 28 is an elder on the scene: “Few bands come out of the chute with a readily identifiable style of their own. What we’re seeing now is people getting to know their instruments and their creative capacities - the equivalent of watching your child crawl and take the first steps.”

If there is anything that bonds the local band members together, it isn’t any stale ideas of revivalism, but mutual affection and respect - for both their contemporaries and their musical predecessors.

“What we have is relationship that’s based on the music that each of these groups is doing,” Peterson said. “We learn from these people, and they learn from the things we like to do, like singing harmonies. I think there’s nothing wrong with that - it’s been missing in this town.”

As the musicians are schooled by each other, they also develop their own nascent musical identities by studying the songs of the ‘60s.

“To grow in any discipline, you are invariably drawn to the greatness of those who have come before you,” Roback said. “There have been a number of great songwriters who have come befor our time that we have been profoundly influenced by.”

In other words, the past has its uses, a notion supported by Sid Griffin: “Rickenbacker 12-strings, Vox amps and fuzztones are the best way for us to express what we’re doing now. I can use these tools a lot better than I can a synthesixer. We didn’t invent or originate these things- we’re extending them, trying to use them in a new way. We’re not revivalists - we’re elementalists.”

- Chris Morris, L.A. Times, 8. december 1983.

50 countryplader enhver rockfan bør kende…

”Inventing soul music as a combination of blues sensuality and gospel fervor, as Ray Charles did, would be enough to put him in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's inaugural class. But Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music is even more audacious, quite possibly the ultimate crossover move. Running country standards by the likes of Hank Williams and Eddy Arnold through his inimitable soul-man filter, Charles won over both audiences — and even beat Frank Sinatra at his own big-band game. That's a mighty big tent, but they didn't call Charles "the Genius" for nothing. Astoundingly, Modern Sounds and its Volume Two follow up (the rare sequel that's just as good as its predecessor) took a grand total of five days in the studio. Even more astoundingly, Charles' label tried to talk him out of doing it. As Charles remembered it in Rolling Stone a decade later, ABC-Paramount's brass told him, "You can't do no country-western things. . .You're gonna lose all your fans!" Instead, Modern Sounds became ABC-Paramount's first million-selling album”

Om Ray Charles’ 'Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music’, der kom i 1962.

Rolling Stone har udarbejdet en liste med 50 countryplader som enhver rockfan bør kende. Jeg kender ikke Ray Charles-pladen, selvom den ligger nummer tre på listen. Med andre ord, jeg har noget hjemmearbejde at gøre. Se alle 50 album herunder.

”skibene
foldes sammen i havnen
kranerne
henter glemte togvogne
ud af strandede varmeskrog
molerne spændt
om ustandselig
nedstyrtende grønhed
isprængt vinger
og rasende
krummede arme
de svømmende
og de døde
fuglene
disse småbitte glimt
i vandet
øjet møder
når det synker
langs ankerkæden

Paisley Underground udflugt

Den opmærksomme læser har sandsynligvis lagt mærke til, at The Dream Syndicate har været rigt repræsenteret i Summertime Blues-udsendelserne. Bandet var nemlig meget populært blandt kunderne i London-pladeforretningen, Plastic Passion. Butikken lavede i 1990, tror jeg, en liste med de 100 bedste plader fra det forudgående årti, baseret på kundernes stemmer. Og netop den liste er årets tema i Summertime Blues. Det vil sige, at jeg har givet mig i kast med at spille et nummer fra alle lp’erne på listen. Derfor var det også ekstra interessant, da der dukkede et billede op på nettet med det helt tidlige The Dream Syndicate. Fotografiet stammer fra en udflugt til Catalina Island, ud for Californiens kyst, som flere bands fra den såkaldte Paisley Underground-scene var på i 1982.

Øverst til venstre er det Debbi og Vicki Peterson fra The Bangles, derefter kommer Steve Wynn, Dennis Duck og Kendra Smith fra The Dream Syndicate, Susanna Hoffs fra The Bangles, og så er det Louis Gutierrez og Michael Quercio fra The Three O’Clocks eller som de nok hed på dette tidspunkt The Salvation Army. De to piger nederst til højre er blevet identificerede, men de har ingen tilknytning til Paisley Underground, andet end de var tilstede den dag fotoet blev taget.

Love-in i Sydhavnen. Give It Up For Jazz Club Loco

”Program:

Kl. 15: Aktivistkoret

Kl. 16: Jeremy Troy

Kl. 20: VS Doom

Det meste af dagen: Stacks & Sean (DJ), Vinyl, grill og chill

Hele dagen: LOVE

De optrædende til Loco Day besidder alle en originalitet og en indre ild, der for alvor vil skabe varme. Se frem til at ’hænge ud’, nyde god mad og drikke - og måske erhverve dig lidt second hand-vinyl i den jazzede afdeling, som sælges på dagen.

Kl. 15: Aktivistkoret er ledet af komponisten Mija Milovic. Kom og lær toner, der kan spredes i gaderne og foran ministerierne, til demoerne, til hinanden, syng med dit hjerte til et hjerte. Alle kan synge og bruge sin stemme. Larmen er pligten.

Materialet rummer diverse protestsange, omsorgsøvelser, besværgelser, aktivistiske danse, stemmetræning mm. som også findes i en fysisk sangbog, der løbende opdateres.

Kl. 16: Jeremy Troy er en komet på den danske musikhimmel. Han er blevet sammenlignet med en ung Prince – og besidder en spændvidde, der er second to none. Al hans musik er egenproduceret og udforsker de eksperimentelle dybder fra hiphop, jazz, krautrock og over til ambient, drone og meget andet.

Sammen med trommeslager Jakob De Place, bassist Philip Akrofi og pianist Viggo Brandholm Jensen, er han gået i gang med at indspille sit debutalbum “Sonic Levitation”, hvis udgivelsesdato endnu er ukendt.

Derudover er Jeremy Troy også en del af det jyske musikkollektiv The Secret Life og Trees som også tæller, Aggi Dix, Josephin Bovién, duoen Yellow Spoon og Julie Pavon.

Kl. 20: VS Doom er kunstnerne M. Rexen og Mads Lund Egetoft, som har slået hver deres store band sammen til et 15 mand/kvinde højt gigaband.

Krautrock møder forvrænget afrobeat med store følelser i et vanvittigt rytmisk virvar.

VS Doom er partybandet fra helvede – og som de så poetisk selv formulerer det:

En Molotov mod isolationens stilstand

Et gigantisk band med formålet at få energien helt op

At knække dig til tåre i ren lykke for at høre instrumenter spillet live igen

Født ud af den kulturelle ødemarks tørst

Velkommen til VS DOOM

VS Doom er:

Michael Rexen - vokal

Mads Egetoft - saxofon, arrangement

Tommy Laursen - guitar

Emil Jantzen - guitar

Peter Danstrup - bas

Rune Lohse - trommer

Greta Eacott - percussion

Kristian Tangvik - keyboard, tuba
