Part Three I start by reading two articles from the Los Angeles Sunday Times. The first one is about the deaths at the Love parade festival going on in Germany, comparing that to our recent death at the Electric daisy carnival here in L.A.
The second article is about recent news reporting that we suffer from short attention spans, because of web use. This article says not to worry, it's not true.
Then, I play two songs from Brian Allen's April's Dad CD, Martian Girl, and Cold as Steel. Wrong Love is a reading from The Book of Afflictions, done by me. Then it's If I Were A Carpenter, as done by Leon Russel, Linda Ronstadt does When Will I Be Loved, The Leningrad Cowboys do Knockin on Heaven's Door.
Shirley Q. Liquor sings Surrounded By Ignunce, Self promting Shy John does Nothing in the World, and the Sex Pistols wrap up this part with Sid Vicious singing My Way.
Part Five starts with Tom Jones, doing his slant on Leadbelly's Black Betty, and then Cab Calloway does Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby?Then, The Buzzcocks do Why Can't I Touch It? Lots of questions. I see a whole show of those? Then,
Captain Beefheart plays Diddy Wah Diddy, and then Chumba Wamba,with Shake Baby Shake, then a live cut of a Primus concert, very noisy, with them doing a piece of Crazy Train in there, and then Daniel Johnston, True Love Will Find You In The End, his lips to God's ears.
David Bromberg starts the next set, doing Sharon, and then David Johansen adds Girls, and also She Knew She Was Falling In Love. DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince does Girls Ain't Nothing But Trouble, and then Eddie Veder does Cat Stevens' Trouble. Dr Hook tells the story of Roland the Roadie and Gertrude the Groupie. Drop Kick Murphys do their version of If I Were A Carpenter, and also Kiss Me, I'm Shitfaced, winding up the show with Eric Clapton's Love In Vain.
I get a call from Chickenleather, to tell me that they are enjoying the show! Just as I was leaving, I appreciate the endorsement, from an esteemed colleague!
