I have a gut feeling about turkey, and The Michael Shelley Show. Baby. Good morning all you kids out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/20/17 11:04am Listener Baby:

One could take all the 1960's bands no one has ever heard of, and still make the argument that the 60's were clearly the greatest decade for music. I give you The Bats as an example.
  Sat. 5/20/17 11:06am clarke:

howdy all!!! baby - nice to see someone so perky so early (for west coast)!!
  Sat. 5/20/17 11:08am clarke:

agreed that the 60's has continual frontiers

Perky is my sur-name. Hola Clarke!
  Sat. 5/20/17 11:15am clarke:

what i find odd is that a random song from the sixties "outlasts", say, indie rock from the 90's - that particular genre does not stand up well, over time (although at the time i liked some of it - i also delineate between indie rock and indie pop, the latter standing up better over time).
  Sat. 5/20/17 11:16am clarke:

what's happnin' way out west??

  Sat. 5/20/17 11:21am Eddy in Australia:

Clarke: Sadly not, apart from sharing a home town.
  Sat. 5/20/17 11:23am clarke:

eddy - that's cool enuff!!!! i guess it is fall down there?
  Sat. 5/20/17 11:23am Stuart Rose:

Clarke, you've got a good point about 60s rock and pop compared to 90s music.
In general , I think the songwriting, the songcraft. Even second and third tier singers/groups had better melodies.
  Sat. 5/20/17 11:25am clarke:

indeed - it is strange how the 60's (all genres and eras) transcends time
  Sat. 5/20/17 11:26am Eddy in Australia:

Clarke: Yep, but chilly enough to feel like winter - Australian winter, not NY/NJ-level winter.
  Sat. 5/20/17 11:26am clarke:

certainly, poplular music today draws little on that era, these days

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/20/17 11:31am Listener Baby:

Back to Clarke's point. I think the 1960's recordings themselves really help them stand up taller. The DIY thing in 1990's didn't help them much in the end. Can't go wrong with a real studio, a real engineer and real mics. A minor point, but important, I feel.
  Sat. 5/20/17 11:32am clarke:

oh, yeah - i figured that, eddy!!
  Sat. 5/20/17 11:33am clarke:

well, it is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to re-create the 60's sound, today. (as opposed to it is relatively easy to reproduce an acceptable 50's sound)
  Sat. 5/20/17 11:34am sharok:

was that scripted with the little girl, it was a great dialogue. im 30 and when i was a little boy i used to run around with a pumpkin head screamin johnny b goode, the first rock n roll lyrics i knew

you just can't MAKE records that sound like the wrecking crew

yes, the production choice on Pier Pressure (and the title) is not what you would expect his 'team' to go for
  Sat. 5/20/17 11:45am clarke:

@northguineahills: Site seems down for me as well.

Although I like this interview, I think the tangents dumping on “the art world” (whatever that means) are really not necessary. It’s kinda like dumping on “the music world.” Andy Warhol was a major part of the high art world and without him, the path of the Velvet Underground would not be the same. Ditto with tons of other art/music connections. It’s not as alienating as one thinks.

Heck, his design of The Rolling Stones’ “Sticky Fingers” album cover is high art, low art, applied art. An album cover with an actual zipper in it back then? That was an insane idea that worked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/20/17 12:13pm JakeGould:

FWIW, Walter De Maria—pretty good minimalist/conceptual artist—was the drummer for the Primitives with Lou Reed and John Cale before the Velvet Underground came to be.

Man, that was solid. Why is it so easy to forget how great Gene Vincent is?

1st saw Kenny w/ Lucinda Williams on the "Car Wheels..." tour (which also featured Jim Lauderdale...) an amazing band

Kenny also plays on Laura Cantrell's stuff

All I am disagreeing with is the false dichotomy of praising Steve Keene’s is somehow connected to dumping on a whole overarching view of the art world in general.

It’s like dumping on classical music in contrast to “real” rock and roll. There’s far more common ground and little need for drama/conflict. Good interview. That’s all.

Yes, Michael Shelley, that was a great band Lucinda had. Killer version of "Disgusted."

Lucinda on CarWheels tour...I'ma savor imagining that a second...sucha definitive album...

btw all -- this is probably the "last lost weekend" for moi...summer season upcoming means no more weekends. i may be able to check in, but not whole shows. it has been really fun to be in the chat!! thnx!
Avatar Sat. 5/20/17 12:52pm Michael Shelley:

I'm disagreeing that I'm drawing that explicit dichotomy

Steve operates outside of that world and that contrast is part of the story

so I explored that - maybe not a 100% bulls-eye but I'm a human

your metaphor of classical to r&r doesnt work for me at all

but thanks for listening & putting in your 2 cents
