umm, yeah so that gutter twins show last night kicked all kinds of ass. i believed they covered the whole record, and also busted out the singers’ “blackberry belle” and one other i cant recall. they briefly covered “shadow of the season” and couple of lanegan solo tracks, one of which i believe was “methamphetamine blues” – i may be mistaken though. deep down i was really wishing for dulli to pull out a whigs song, but i knew that wouldnt happen. still a fuckin awesome show, whigs or no whigs. i was lucky enough to speak to scott ford, bassist for the twins and twilight singers, for a few after the nights festivities and as expected is a super cool bloke. it goes without saying that you need to check em out when they roll throw your town.
i cant think of a better way to spend six minutes and 40 seconds than by listening to luna’s “23 minutes in brussels,” which to me is as close to perfect to the perfect song as humanly possible. pure pop bliss at its absolute finest, and their records aint too shabby either. never listened to luna? definitely check out at least bewitched and/or penthouse, preferably both.
here is dean wareham and his band luna performing in sweden @ the hultsfed fest on 6.12.99. as always, much love to the original taper.
