Re: The Cure

Aye...the expectations were zero as in that kind of setup, the performance was never going to sublime, especially in such a shit venue. But the whole thing will live on in the memory. TR did an excellent job, I thought. And it was nice to see the other old geezers on stage, no matter the silliness f...

Re: The Cure

It's funny....we can dissect who said what and how the mix was...whether the institution is a joke or otherwise and a million other things, but this was a pretty fucking amazing night. Was it the best performance of theirs that I have witnessed? No, but I wasn't really measuring it. Because sometime...

Re: Both Eric and Perry are Involved with the Chris Cornell Tribute Concert

And keep in mind, just because someone wasn't friends with Chris doesn't mean they weren't supremely influenced by him. This was an opportunity for some relatively well known musicians to pay tribute to him. Yes, I get that. But it didn't need to be five hours of everyone who wanted to pay tribute ...

Re: Both Eric and Perry are Involved with the Chris Cornell Tribute Concert

So many mixed feelings about this event. There were some great moments, many not. Although I enjoyed it overall, the whole thing left me pretty cold as it just seemed so divorced from the artists I had known and loved for three decades. It felt more like a barometer of his legacy than a genuine trib...

Re: Both Eric and Perry are Involved with the Chris Cornell Tribute Concert

Avery on a TotD song?! Now that really would be bizarre, and for a host of reasons. I find it hard to believe that if Matt Cameron and Stone Gossard are there, that Ament wouldn't be. All of this aside from the fact that I see even less of a connection between EA and TofD and its members. Sadly, the...

Re: Both Eric and Perry are Involved with the Chris Cornell Tribute Concert

This whole event is shaping up to be a rather weird thing. I'm paying attention as I will be going, but it really doesn't have the integrity to it that should do. By that, I mean the fact that the widow's name is all over it and there is barely any concrete involvement from the former members of his...

Re: What does everyone here do for a living?

Love this thread. I'm a market researcher, so I ask questions and snoop around people's lives for a living. Qualitative research, I hasten to add - no numbers. Sometimes I run focus groups, but mostly I go into people's homes and interview them for a few hours; the purpose of which is to help large ...

Re: Perry had some stuff stolen

As we were moving the heavier pieces of luggages into our house after coming home from our Aspen holiday, we left Perry’s carry-on, an Alexander McQueen, on the ledge next to the gate. It wasn’t there when we went back for it. Vacuous and superficial as ever, bless her. She had to name-drop the bra...

Re: Coachella 2015

I laughed when the email landed this morning. I used to eagerly wait for the lineup to drop in hope that the lineup would be wow enough to make the journey. It was for a few years, but the I got older and it got younger (it seems) and year after year the lineup became more and more like of meaningle...

Re: Dave



Slightly longer version of the aforementioned clip, with Al's intro to the song saying that he's "high". Whatever high means.... Then again, his comment about never having played the song was just rubbish.

Re: Dave

This indeed was super special. I actually think the last time Ministry played this song was in the early 80s. I was blown away when they announced a couple of days ago that Dave and Chris Connelly were going to be playing with Ministry for these two shows in LA. I love Connelly, and Ministry has not...

Re: Kind Heaven Orchestra's 12/2 show: Will it happen or not?

... Manic Street Preachers' 2000s albums without the original singer. ... Manics haven't lost a singer. They lost a lyricist - technically a lyricist / "lead guitarist" but one who, in the finest punk tradition, couldn't really play guitar. And, yet, he was the only interesting thing about the band.

Re: NIN + Jesus And Mary Chain Tour

Fair comment indeed. I tried them, and didn't get it, but my point was more that it's difficult to take her seriously as an artist when she was in a band that didn't really make any headlines over a decade ago. She quit WIG when she and TR got together, and the only thing she's done musically over t...

Re: NIN + Jesus And Mary Chain Tour

Many thanks for this, Panda - as always, thorough enough to make it feel like being there. I was gutted not to be able to make it to more of the LA shows than just the one, but looking eagerly at the set lists each night since, I really do think I struck Palladium gold. I must admit that I thought t...

Re: NIN + Jesus And Mary Chain Tour

Hey Pheno, looks like you got your Broken+ B-sides set last night! It was fucking nuts! With the exception of the Intern show in 2009, which I believe you were also at, this was the best nin gig I have ever seen. The set list was phenomenal. Yes, Broken and nothing post 1994. While I certainly am n...

Re: Kind Heaven Orchestra's 12/2 show: Will it happen or not?

I've said this before in relation to NIN/JA but, while that might hold true in the US, this side of the Atlantic (the UK anyway) that suggestion's a joke. Perry, and Jane's, are all but forgotten to all but the hardcore, long-term fans. NIN have massive recognition across all generations, and not j...

Re: NIN + Jesus And Mary Chain Tour

It'll just be one in the run for me. Had tickets for Tuesday and Wednesday, but now don't have the time to stay down there two night, so ditching Wednesday. I think a lot of people had particularly high hopes for these shows, though the first two were pretty run of the mill (unless you count the HTD...

Re: NIN + Jesus And Mary Chain Tour

Thanks for the rundown re the ticket scenario. Have only been to the venue once (for nin, oddly enough), so don't know it well. As for merch- the cash grab is on. Apparently they're selling merch in the parking lot from 2pm each day.....to anyone. You don't need to be a ticket holder, which given th...
