Here's a quick one before I post the Film School set: mp3s from a couple radio broadcasts you may have missed over the past few days...
The Twilight Singers are about a week into their 'Powder Burns' summer tour, and they stopped by the CD101 'Big Room' in Columbus, OH to chat a bit and plow through a couple songs...
1. Twilight Singers - Bonnie Brae (live)
2. Twilight Singers - Interview
3. Twilight Singers - Underneath the Waves (live)
While the streaming sound quality wasn't spectacular, I did a little tweaking, and their performance has me even more psyched for this Monday night when they play the Paradise here in Boston. Dulli & Co. never disappoint, and I'm pretty surprised it's not sold out yet. Believe me, that won't be true by the time they hit the stage.
Oh, and get there early -- it's a close-knit opening line-up. Dulli cohort Jeff Klein starts the night, and a band Greg has been a touring part of, Italy's Afterhours, is up second.
BBC6Music had David Gedge of the Wedding Present on the phone on Wednesday, calling from France during their current European tour, ostensibly to promote the just-released CD/DVD collection "Search for Paradise: Singles 2004-5". Not only did Gedge chat about the current tour, but he hinted that once they're off the road in June he'll start plugging away at songs for the next Wedding Present album. Good news indeed.
Once the interview was over, the BBC dusted off a few songs from the Weddoes 1988 appearance at the London's Town & Country Club, so here they are...
The Wedding Present
live at the Town & Country Club, London
Friday 19th February 1988
1. Interview / Intro
2. Everyone Thinks He Looks Daft
3. Nobody's Twisting Your Arm
4. Be Honest
5. Anyone Can Make a Mistake
6. My Favourite Dress
Not only did they start that show with 'Everyone Thinks He Looks Daft' (the only song I've ever sang live on stage... don't ask), but Gedge introduced 'Be Honest' as 'a new one'. 18 years ago. Ok, now I feel ancient again. Glad to hear that they're actually playing that one on the current tour... sometimes you just can't beat the old stuff.
Listen to the stream of that BBC6 broadcast until this coming Wednesday right here.
