Re: Just a Ghost of Vaudeville?

" a good setlist - containing the fan favourites (that the crowd want to hear) along with new songs that you want to test out" This here might be what you are looking for. You don't have any fan favourites just yet: you're a new band, everything you play is 'new' to the crowd. The 'fan favourites' t...

Re: Elvis' birthday

I don't really know much about Elvis, but such is his fame, I can easily bring his voice up in my head. For example, I was listening to an interview with Dolly Parton about her song "I will always love you". Some guy at the record label really, really, pushed for Elvis to have the song but Parton di...

Re: If you could make a fantasy band...

Perhaps, but surely it has to come into consideration. For instance, an Entwistle/Grohl rhythm section suggests to be a fairly showy performance from the pair of them. They both like to add a bit of flair to their playing, and therefore would probably be a fabulous coupling. Not every singer can co...

Re: sports fandom vs. music fandom & what FT's music means t

This is fresh in my mind at the moment after a show I played in Germany last week. I was sitting out the back of the venue with the other artist who was on the bill while the inhabitants of the bar were watching the football game that was on the TV before the gig. Every so often the pub would erupt ...

Re: A different, perhaps far-fetched, request

While, I'm not a father yet, I think that if my kids deprived me of seeing them getting married, I'd be heartbroken. It seem's a really selfish thing to do to the people who have raised you through all your life events up until that moment. And to share it instead with complete strangers from an int...

Re: A BRAND New cd each week this year - suggestions?

If you're looking for something away from the usual circles, my record label is putting out a CD by a band called Kettle Rebellion. Definitely for fans of Gogol Bordello, early Against Me! and Mischief Brew (obviously, since this is a secret//lost/stolen part of their history). It's an 8 song set of...
