Jesus H! Why doesn't that show Rolling Thunderize itself and march on up the East coast. You need to bring that show to the people, as at least one of those people's shitty car will not make it 15 hours to memphis.

Well, trash, we'll see. I'm waitin' to find out if Paddy's wife is gonna go. If she doesn't wanna go, then it's yours. Sooo, I'll find out in the next day or so from him. We're lookin' at the car rental being about $61 a day (which is cheap 'cause everywhere else for that weekend was like $129 a day). I don't know if that price includes car insurance or taxes, but it does mean unlimited miles and it will be a Grand Am or an equivilant. So it's not gonna be a small ass car. I'll keep you posted.

Just so nobody gets the wrong idea. Tip Tops will really only consist of me and Lacey(as my wife the original drummer is in a family way presently) playin'4 or 5 songs and the Compulsive Gamblers will not really be playing but Jack and I will do a Gamblers song or two maybe with the Cool Jerks or something. Definitly not a full set or anything.For a show thats shaping up to be 10 bands strong this should not be a deterent. You'll be thanking me for our brief participation when your all hung over the next day. Plenty of other great rock n roll to be had though. Should be a hoot! Wonder whos gonna be in 68 comeback?
Nonsense
Posted: Aug 2, 2003 2:45 pm
 
I can't say that this development doesn't put a damper on things. With no disrespect to any of the other bands involved, the thing that made me jump when I read the lineup was the Compulsive Gamblers name along with the prospect of seeing yourself and Jack do solo sets. Any chance of Reigning Sound playing somewhere during that weekend?

Who's in the Pendletons for this show...mebbe Kondor?
Helen Wheels
Posted: Aug 3, 2003 7:00 am
 
Yes, you cretins! If all of us can remember the songs (including the 8 and 3 yr olds), why can't you? Here I am planning a road trip through the South with my children - which on it's own could redeem y'alls negligence anyhow. But what damned excuses the two of you could think of to explain why you can't play those songs -- I can't feature.

With the positive and lovely change in life the Compulisive Gamblers brought to me, to say it'll be a song or two rates piss poor with in my book.

I might add that that the Reigning Sound was not a better stand in than any other when they masqueraded as the CGs. We all know it was a studio genre, doesn't matter who fills in, Ed. Let it go. Play some lovely tilted music for us, we'll pay for it, twice if that's what you want.

Your Fan,

Great news to add to the line-up:
Oxford's Neckbones
& Memphis r&b instro kings Impala (possibly with original drummer Jeff)!!

Just to follow-up on inquiries: With this many bands, it would be impossible to have full sets. This is a rock n roll revue & party! A taste of the best, if you will. (Unfortunately Reigning Sound are not on the cd compilation and therefore not on the show, although members from that band are in several of the other bands performing) Show will begin at 10 p.m. and go til Dave makes the bands quit. 5 hours of awesome rock n roll. $7 admission. You do the math...

Advance ticket info. on Monday.

This is the first I've heard about the Cool Jerks sitting in as the Gamblers, but I'm pretty sure I can speak for the rest of the guys and say we'd love to.

I'm certain, you're up to the task, Scottie, aye. Perhaps I'll have to steal the babysitting money to entice the naysayers to make more than one or two. My mother has always said "I poo poo the naysayers..." It's sort of a credo for me. Although I do cry sometimes when I lose out, many times the poo pooing naysayers run the roost.

Sherman may weigh in on this, as he has offered the babysitting connection - I promise no breech, Sherman. Either way, I'll personally pony up to sponsor at least, please god willing, 6 compulsive gambler songs (happy with two, but one can always dream.)

OK, I admit it, it's the only reason I'd spend 5 hours at a time in a car with a cranky 3 yr old princess (ah the apple doesn't fall far from the tree...it can be quite annoying). The redeeming factor, if I'm disappointed, might be spending the night in Hot Springs on the way and back.

But you gotta unnerstand, quite by accident, the Compulsive Gamblers waked me up from the climbing drudgery of professional life, breastfeeding, and housework like big wonderful slap in the face. They reminded me why I made the sacrifices I had so my Blow Top husband could be free to do his thing, too. I know I was late coming to it, but not too late to be saved by it.

In the interim, all those lovely CDs and records he received gratis were simply noise to me...honey I been adding up very long columns of numbers all day and doing complex algebra with them so you can play that poor man's sax...please turn off that noise (I didn't realize that could be my very relief!...and this after being a punk rocker since 1979...).

We all have choices in life. Perhaps this one has to do with sacrificing the personal time and communication for the greater good of those who love your art. Well the only logic I have for those ethics is some personal green. Anybody willing to sweeten this pot, lemme know and we'll all throw in for (now do we get to request our faves? Walking the Balustrade...might not be the actual title, no insult intended...has always been a fave of mine, along with Sour and Vicious Man. But then there's Hand Full of Burning Sand, which always leave me and mine laughing so hard we're rolling on the floor.) Oh please, if it's one or two, stick to the earlier stuff. I've been married too long to fly into the fancy of daisy chains etc. At this point we need depth in the lyrics, and there seemed to be plenty of it early on.

We could call ourselves the kick-in crowd. We kicked in, now play it loud. Not fair perhaps to the other bands, but their own fans could do the same thing.

If this is all about frat garage rock...sign me a GDI, which is what they called girls like me in college, with a woeful sigh, God Damned Independent.

I feel it should be noted(for people who aren't sure if they wanna come or not)that there will also be events in town the night before AND after the Shangri-la CD release party. Friday night is Othar Turner's annual Labor Day weekend picnic. Sadly Othar won't be there this year, but I understand the Rising Star Fife and Drum Band is still going strong. It's an event not to be missed. Sun. night (don't forget it's a holiday weekend, and ya gots nothing to do on Monday) the Final Solutions and the Dutch Masters with other special guests will be playing at an as of yet undecided location. Don't worry though. We'll let you know where in plenty of time to either attend or avoid as you heart dictates. Hope you all make it to town.

if we just set up the times of the shows accordingly, it should be fine. quinn could probably use somebody else's guitar amp at the solutions show, and our set is only 19 minutes if we can get zac and jimmy jewlz to stop blabbin. quinn's a young buck, he can handle it.

Goubler may find himself kidnapped and brainwashed ala Patty Hurst if I am present. I'd force him to register Democratic voters..with the bullet belt and cute hat and outfit of course...

Sorry Helen but your strange brand of flatery will get you nowhere. We will only play 2 songs and they will be brandspanking new. No old stuff. They will be hip hop in nature and will feature our newest stand-in Chris Aleinator on vocals. He assures me they will be so so fire.

damn! No, Bo! we all love the Buc... but maybe shows there are special 'cause they're special shows. this is just a damn run of the mill labor day sunday show. Dutch Masters at the Buc was perfect.

Just wait until you hear us through a real PA and the floor isn't bouncing up and down- we will definitely sound terrible. that's why we need everyone to do some bizarre shooters and get messed up before our set (first, i assume).

The obvious choice to open the show is of course the mighty ATOMIC JEFFERSON!

Now you KNOW i'm kidding...

I would kill to see Atomic Jefferson. Have you talked to Rob and Eddy Bo lately? Apparently they live across the street from each other in B'ham.
Also I have it on good authority that the line-up for the Pendeltons will be Matt, Mike, Louie, and Tommy. Genuis!

I will be counting, Ed. Two, and no more. Perhaps. My understanding has always been that strange flattery could get you anywhere, but your message is succinct and well understood. I will hope for one, no matter what it is, and then I'll be delighted if there are two...but I'll be ecstatic if there are any, because anything can happen in Memphis between now and then.

***THE NEW MEMPHIS NOW SOUND***

dutch masters
final solutions
die rotzz

Dutch Masters, Memphis's hottest new band, will be hard-pressed to beat their Memphis debut at the Buc last month. Rumors of stretch pants have everyone intrigued.

Final solutions take punk posturing to boring new levels each time out. Drummer Jay recently completed a west coast tour with his better known hip-hop band, fresh sounds.

Die Rotzz is making the drive from the Big Easy. Harmonized yelling and banging and squeal guitar never sounded so good. Ta-dow.

at Murphy's the next night (SUNDAY). No advanced tickets needed. what a weekend.

Please Compulsive Gamblers, allow only Greg and Jack to play guitar on your songs - (this would seem to be a natural decision).

The Cool Jerks have a much different tenor than the Reigning Sound. (Need I state the obvious?)It will be interesting to hear the difference.

Although she is very conflicted over having to choose, Emma Lou has confirmed that she prefers Greg songs to Jack songs, however, she sometimes says "Jack being silly, Jack funny." Then she laughs alot. Guess it's tough being 3.

the compulsive gamblers need more requests. they don't know how to play their own show. please anybody with an opinion or a cute kid quote please let them know what they should play, how long, and with what lineup, and don't forget what time, or even where! hell there's other options, they could play outside the hi-tone, or in the circle k parking lot next door, with a couple of circle dogs on each amp.

It's all right baby, dems just words on a screen. I kinda like the idea of being dumped in Havana, I hear a person with knowledge of simple auto repair on old cars can get along great there. But tell me ahead of time so I can bring some parts for them. I hear they lack simple parts like spark plugs, filters etc.

I could be dumped anywhere, of course...alive would be better. And if I were dumped alive anywhere, I have no doubt I'd prove my value before I would suffer.

Forgive my suggesting that the performing artists consider the requests of their fans. Why, to do so would be punk-rock blasphemy, of course. Blasphemy in the world of punk rock...gimme one please...

If it is a rule I have broken, would that not be tasteless and defiant by definition? Are not tastlesness and defiance part of the nihilistic punk, garage-rock credo?

And what does it hurt? And why does it matter?

It's so nice to know you care...

Helen Wheels

Oh, and Chris, in case you need a short math lesson: That would be one out of two girls prefer Greg songs to Jack songs. That is after considerable reflection on the part of a three year old.

You seem to enjoy her commentary, so I'll add that she bursts out laughing listening to Woodie Guthrie imitate car sounds in "Take me Ridin' in the Car."

And really it all depends on what day it is, and whether or not Christian said HI to Lily at the playground - on those days, she favors Greg.

Sides which, Lily appreciates depth. She has named her recent improv jazz recording with Walter and Wade Driver "The Birth of Evil." If you're lucky enough you'll hear it sometime. She's on piano. I would have named it "Something's gone wrong at the Baptist Church."

You know, when and if you make music, you gotta be ready for everyone who listens to it to enjoy it or not, respond to it or not, and to comment regardless of their age.

Or,in your pristine view, should I not be playing this music for children, perhaps I should stick with Burl Ives and the "The Big Rock Candy Mountain."

I am certain the problem with this is not mine. (But I seem to know how stir up a heap a trouble with you (y'all)...there's my real domain.)

Guess I'll have to wear my combat boots next weekend.

My wife likes Jack's songs...
Helen Wheels
Posted: Aug 27, 2003 6:44 am
 
To begin, I appreciate both Jack and Greg, I think they are both exceptional musicians and songwriters. There are many songs I could point to by either one that would represent the fine skills of each for the crafting of lyrics and music. I find their talents divergent in a way that is really inspiring when it comes together.

That sed, I have two older brothers who always laughed and made fun of the soggier side of femininity (I had two older sisters also). One brother, Angus, liked to laugh at a song about menstruation by a band named "Moxy," and made me laugh about it too. I think I have a somewhat tenacious grip on the male perspective toward females and the overuse of emotion. But Angus could advise me quite accurately which boys/men really liked me and which just wanted it, so it's not as if they didn't believe males could have real emotions for females.

So they got my bullshit sensors primed. Many too-too sticky sentimental songs make me sigh a long silent dry heave and wish the singer would just go get a room. This is a matter of personal taste on my part, I realize. And I also had a big sister who told me that boys just want to fuck you, and especially if they offer you a quaalude, you should be suspicious. So love songs as sheer as a pair of cheap pantyhose, a quaalude of sorts, if you will, certainly stir me to exit.

But I do adore early Doug Sahm love songs. Harlem sessions. He knew how to be sentimental without being offensive or leaving the feeling there was either some deception or a certain lack of candidness involved. And the New York Dolls song about the Great Big Kiss does not strike me as too saccharin, either. There are good love songs.

I feel that when one treads upon the waters of emotion in a song, one must tread lightly, lest they plunge through the tears that make the salt lake they walk upon, or lest they step into a pool of something else, and then fall through.

Whatever.

Oh yes, dangerouspinkie! That's a brilliant idea you have. An acoustic compulisive gamblers show in the Circle K parking lot (no amps, no circle dogs), fantastique! 9 pm of course, so that Lily can go. Emma would only cry at the spectacle.

I'll keep dreaming, no point in givin' up now.

Hell, if I'd wake Lily up to watch Godzilla v. Mothra at 2 am, I'd certainly let her sleep a couple hours and roust her to come the Hi Tone. I am her mama after all.

If your wife likes Jacks songs...I like her psychological profile...let's hook up.

Old school garage videos (circa '96!) begin at 9:00 p.m. Snakehips kicks off at 10:00 p.m. http://gomemphis.com/mca/hot_sounds/article/0,1426,MCA_507_2220147,00.html

Helen, what does that mean? If he doesn't talk as much about politics as you do that's fine...what do you mean by "Hook Up"...

I was just joking that any woman who likes Jack songs must be crazy....stupid joke.
