oh cool, they should make a whole channel out of that and let them pre-record their performances set to interesting video.

In pop culture, the only difference between professional and amateur is the paycheck.

At first I was thinking "OD already you farking weird hippie!" but then I realized he might be aiming for an American version of Later With Jools Holland. I'd be down for that.

puffy999: In pop culture, the only difference between professional and amateur is the paycheck.


While technically I disagree with this, as there's a big difference between a fully trained musician and an amateur, I would categorize like 99.9% of pop, rock, and country acts as amateurs rather than real musicians. And the other 0.1% have real ability but are faking at sucking to sell records on the pop charts.

So instead I guess I have to admit that I see what you mean there.

//One of the reasons '90s and a lot of '80s music sucked terribly is that there is a _huge_ difference between being classically trained or talented on the level of Jazz music but making a conscious decision to stick with simpler rhythms and melodies, and just having learned to play power chords in your garage and working your way _up_ to playing pop/rock. Most of the '60s and '70s rock and folk/country was more along the lines of the former (and even most of that wasn't exactly brilliant).

Maybe they can air it on Paladia..
 
2012-08-10 07:50:08 AM  
I always dug "Sessions At West 54th", "Night Music" "Austin City Limits" & "Later With Jools Holland". I think those were the cream of the crop, as far as music programming goes.

I could see this working. But, I think what would actually make it interesting is that the bands can't play their own tune. They have to pick a cover outside of their usual genre.

1st segment--They show the band picking a song and explaining why they chose it.

2nd segment--shows the bands practicing the tune and trying to add their own spin on it.

3rd segment--Band plays song in full on stage in front of live crowd.

4th segment--bonus song of all the groups from the evening jamming on something or simply playing some classic.

or

You interview the writers of the covers and see what they think. Or, you make the bands pick a song from the OTHER band on the show. Lots of thinks you could do in the "reality tv genre not a variety show."


You could sell a cd every season of the best covers, or a deluxe double set with every song.



This is how you would have to sell it to a tv audience these days. Simple performance won't work--attention spans are too short. You have to "make it a story."

That's a pretty interesting idea. I'd watch it.

I've always really liked Live from Abbey Road:
Muse
Jamiroquai
Ben Harper
Wynton Marsalis

If Farrel does something along those lines where you get a bit of history about the song/genre/band along with the performances, and it's not just like the last segment of all the late night shows, I think it could be pretty great.

Just last night I pulled up Ritual de lo Habitual for the first time in, I dunno, 15 years? I originally bought it on cassette (that's right, b*tches) in 1990. I was barely in high school! Over the years I listened the fark out of that album.

Once I wore out the cassette and managed to lose the CD copy, I heard snippets of the album, mostly from jukeboxes in bars...and it was almost always Been Caught Stealing (eh, good but not the best on there) But I really hadn't seriously listened to the whole album since I was a very young man. So last night I found it online, put on my headphones, and listened while typing on the computer (including here).

IT'S STILL ONE OF THE BEST FARKING ALBUMS EVER MADE.


And that's funny, coming from late-30s me. Now I listen to lots of jazz, electronic, and p*ssy rock...but really not a lot of aggressive rock. It's not that I don't dig the genre; just not in the mood to have everything barked at me all the time. I don't dig Michael Bay movies either. But I was only halfway through the guitar intro to "Stop" before I realized that it was gonna be an air-guitar night.

And it was.

EROTIC JESUS!


/can't forget the ultra-haunting "Then She Did"
 
2012-08-10 10:40:33 AM  
Dammit, I meant that as,

Erotic Jesus! DAH DAH DA DAHHHHH. Cos, you know, we were talking about air-guitar. But I also love the way the vocal is screeched. And I swear I'm going to STFU now.

I've always thought JA is one of the most under rated bands of all time. I was surprised that Rolling Stone rated their albums (Nothing Shocking and Ritual) so low, and then, just recently pushed one right off the Best Albums of All time lists. BS I say.

//Perry Farrell is very accessible on FB.

So is Casey, his "Classic Girl." She dates a boy from the swamps of the armpit of Florida now and keeps us all up to date on how it goes. I gather she doesn't much care for Perry these days...such a classic girl

Very similar to the A.V. Club Undercover. Which, if you haven't seen, has some very enjoyable performances. TMBG covering Tubthumping?! Yeah, exactly.
