The Sharp Things live on WFMU

Live performance by The Sharp Things (L to R - Dylan Fusillo: drums; James Pertusi: bass; Michelle Caputo: guitar, vocals; Perry Serpa: vocals, keyboards; Jim Santo: guitar, vocals)
Reminiscent of the best 1970's era bands, The Sharp Things play pleasant chamber-pop floating on a cloud of tight harmonies and horn-filled orchestrations. Their new album "EverybodyEverybody" the fourth in a conceptual opus, part of a series of albums called The Dogs Of Bushwick, in tribute to The Kennel, a now defunct studio. Bandleader Perry Serpa describes it as "...a straight stream of music and sound from top to (almost) bottom." The Sharp Things played live on Irene's show.

I like the pic. Someone there on W 82nd decided to lively up the stoop, and on a smaller architectural scale sorta answered what the lightmeisters did with projection on Westminster Abbey in London recently. There ought to be a happy pairing of daytime chalk festival and nighttime light festival somewhere.

Hi Irene and everyone.
Listener Robert:

Reminds me of ~3 yrs. ago when a duet played a composition of theirs at a pagan retreat I attended, and I mentioned afterward how much it sounded like the theme from "World War 1", the CBS TV series from 50 yrs. ago. They said they never heard it. Afterward a friend of mine who was there asked, "Did you just call out the musicians? Because that would be a very heathen thing to do."

Nice live set - let's have the Sharp Things play halftime at the super bowl. Or would the audience be offended by *real* music?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm
Mike East:

I don't think it would offend them so much as bewilder them, herb.

V Priceless:

Hi Irene - Yay Nektar!
George Jefferson:

Diggin' this Nektar!

Oy, no T in SCHWARZ

What a great organ sound on Brinsley Schwarz...

Brinsley Schwarz bewilders NFL.
Santos L Halper:

Great set Irene. Nice to hear the Giant
Listener Robert:

FYI, here's the piece (by Morton Gould) I was comparing that duet's piece to: www.youtube.com...

I don't know if that duet ever recorded, but to find their piece for comparison I'd have to recall their name.

Irene Trudel:

Thanks Herb! Typos live large in my life. Hi Everybody! I've been busy with mixing the band, so no time to write back in teh comments. But I've been lurking.

To be honest, the “Schwarz” versus “Schwartz” thing can be debated for hours. But hey! Respect the spelling of whoever wants it spelled that way.
Listener Robert:

The funny thing is that the Morton Gould "World War 1" sounds, deliberately I'm sure, like a dirge, while the duet's piece was light & lively. Show what you can do by changing tempo & some notes. Actually I don't mean to exaggerate the similarity, just the 1st bar and a half identical, then only slight similarity. But I still suspect maybe that old TV show stuck in the head of the folk-style composer if s/he was old enough.

Good evening, Irene.

This is nice listening...
Listener Robert:

Meanwhile, the ACTUAL 1st world war was the 7 Years' War.

Why do I keep thinking about stuff that makes me cry? Not as often as when I was withdrawing from tramadol, though. THAT was a trip!
Listener Robert:

Darn, now I'm thinking about GLEN Gould! But not crying.

You say "the old Fleetwood Mac" as in "Bare Trees" and I'm thinking that is the beginning of the decline, compared to "Then Play On" and "Kiln House" oh but, that said, it's a good show.

Don’t cry for me Argentina.

I like Greg Lake's voice, in moderation of course.

Same here, KP. I was once obsessed with ELP, but that thankfully has passed.
Avatar 11:21pm
still b/p:

Among my main ELP recollections, cued inevitably and automatically if thinking about the band for even a few seconds, is listening to Tarkus and Pictures At An Exhibition cassettes on a portable player, probably with the mono earphone, on dad's boat, early 70s.

hello Irene and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm

hmm. that whole album sound a good bit like c.o.t.c.k.!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm

i wish i'd heard that Mary Hopkin. i think i've never heard anything besides "those were the days" and the flip of that 7".

Irene, hah. I must say you pick the best King Crimson. You unearth the gems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm

yeah,i would like to have heard that KC too. mine's in storage and it's been a few years. -same goes for bare trees & the power and the glory! Damn i should've been here!

In an alternative universe Skip Spence could have been Neil Young.

So nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm

ha! i said "sweet" to this song but yes i must check out some of Hopkin's material. it's kind of weird that i never have, considering how huge that single was in my household as a child.

moontana, you must mean Jorma?
