Vincent Gallo Live At Club Quattro

Here is another Vincent Gallo Performance for those who enjoyed the last post. This one is from the "When" tour back in 2001. The show was recorded at Club Quattro in Hiroshima Japan. The majority of the songs are from the When album, but there are some rarities here as well. A cover of "a taste of honey" and King Crimson's "cadence & cascade". Another cool song to look out for is "Teresa" which I think is an original, but I'm not sure. This is a cool show, there is some serious jamming here. The band even turns "Yes, I'm lonely" into a 10 minute jam session. Backing Gallo are Josh Klinghoffer on Guitars and Keys (who played frequently with Red Hot Chili Peppers and John Frusciante) and Carla Azar (of Autolux) on drums. Sound quality is pretty good if you can get past the Japanese girls giggling and screaming between all of the songs. I liked it a lot.

Vincent Gallo Live at ATP

This is Vincent Gallo's live set from his 2005 performance at the All Tomorrow's Parties (which he curated that year). Performing with him was Sean Lennon on guitars and keyboards and Yuka Honda on drums and bass. Of the 11 songs the band performed, 3 of them were instrumentals written just for the show, also Sean performs two of his own songs. The sound quality is pretty good considering it probably being a mic in the crowd. Nice mellow lounge set. It's interesting to hear Gallo's improvisations of his studio songs. Most of the songs performed are from Vincent Gallo's album "When". Enjoy...

Track Listing:
01 intro
02 Once (Sean Lennon)
03 My Beautiful White Dog
04 Yes, I'm Lonely
05 Instrumental #1
06 When
07 So Sad
08 Dead Meat (Sean Lennon)
09 Instrumental #2
10 Honey Bunny

Nancy & Lee Again (1972)

Hello everybody, hope all is well. Today I have something special for everybody. A very obscure album (I had a very hard time finding this one) by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood (one of my idols). Don't know much about it besides that it is the second the pair did together under that name and it was recorded in 1972, a fine year for sunny studio pop albums. Oh, also I believe Lee had to return from Sweden to make this one. So if you're into 70's country with lots of charm, you'll probably like this.

Track Listing:
1. Arkansas Coal (Suite)
2. Big Red Balloon
3. Friendship Train
4. Paris Summer
5. Congratulations
6. Down From Dover
7. Did You Ever
8. Tippy Toes
9. Back On The Road
10. Got It Together

Brian Grainger & Friends - The Bland Stand Collective Volumes 1&2 (1998-2005)

To start off October, I have something very special for you all. Brian Grainger of Milieu has gathered this compilation of unreleased tunes (from various bands he had formed) recorded between 1998 and 2004 exclusively for this blog (at least at the moment). This is the first place for this stuff to surface and I am very honored that he is allowing me to post it. So thanks Brian. Brian was kind enough to include a brief statement regarding the recorded material, so here it is, I won't continue rambling.

A note about these compilations:
"These are completely unreleased recordings, made either by myself or with various other contributors, some of them as old as highschool. Please be forgiving with the audio quality on some of this material, as "professional" and "produced" weren't really terms I used back in the day. Alot of this was never meant to be released to the public, but thanks to some (light) prodding by some (well meaning) friends and "fans", it's here. Enjoy it, if you can, and have fun looking back on what was floating around in my creative head well before Milieu was ever an idea!"
