Howling Diablos - Green Bottle [1998]

Hello people.
Been watching tennis? I know so many people think it's boring but I love a bit of Wimbledon I have to say.
Federer is at the moment beating some guy who's name I can't spell and making it look easy...
In other news Micheal Jackson died. Yes I saw the story unfold as it happened, from the reports of it from TMZ and then to other sites as it came out.
It's weird. Do people care? Really? Everyone thinks of him as a weirdo paedophile as far as I can tell and that's probably right but, this being a music blog I can't let it pass without saying something about it.
Not exactly one of my favourite musicians he was bloody good at what he did.
The king of pop? Probably. Just good. Great even.
That's all I need to say.
The guy was sad and weird and a good musician and showman.
I'm not going to talk about any of his 'legal issues'...
He died. RIP and all that.

OK! ... Today is a great day!!!
I discovered a band yesterday and have been listening to this album so much I really know it well already...
Don't you love that when you can get into some tunes soo much that you quickly know half the lyrics and all the subtle changes in the music etc..well that is how this has got me today.
Not only is it a new band, I'm shamed to say it's (almost) a new genre for me too.
The Howling Diablos.
They are, simply put, a funk-rock band.
They play heavy and really funky rock music and they play it well.
I knew it was a bit new to my ears when I realised I couldn't really compare them to any other artist I could think of ... apart from maybe the Red Hot Chilli Peppers but then I have never given them a chance at all any way. I just never liked them. Not sure why. Some music clicks with me, some doesn't.
It's that simple.
Well the Howling Diablos have clicked.

I'm going to leave you with a sample track from this, probably my favourite on the album...hmm..maybe, yeah OK, 'It's My Party'.
Enjoy. (I know the quality is poor, sorry I seem to have lowered the bitrate a little too much when I did it for uploading. the one in the links is of good sounding quality!)

Oh and this is one of those where I want to highly recommend you go and BUY their stuff if you like it because I fully intend to get me some myself!
Their site is here.
Their album (a different one) is here.

Hey the Tennis match is over and amazing news, Federer won.
Looks like he will be winning it again this year but us Brits have a hope for Andy Murray just because we need to win it for once!

Oh how I love Tennis!

Bob Dylan - 1965 San Francisco Press Conference (Video)

Hello there.
Ill health is a bitch and yet again has been getting to me a bit much. Things are happening with the hospital to try and sort me out. New treatments etc. Fingers crossed and all that.

Now! When I first saw this I was totally blown away. Not only had I somehow been led to believe that Dylan had no real interviews of any length recorded, but also that he didn't give proper press conferences either. How wrong I was! This may be the only press conference he did (I think!) but it is no less amazing for that.
He's young and seems to be chain smoking whilst having a bit of a laugh answering the questions with, sometimes, quite irrelevant answers.
I have to say it's a sign of the times on the video that the questions are just so...well you'll see what I mean.
This is a fine piece of history we have here. I have watched it so many times since I found it and it never really tires or fails to amuse or interest me.
I was going to rip another Dylan Bootleg DVD for you so I got one called 'Compilation #1 'Just a Song n Dance Man'.
It has a few performances on it, mostly old stuff and then it has this full press conference at the end.
After I ripped the whole DVD I was converting it to XviD and I noticed that all of the other stuff has already been shared with you as it is also on the other 'Telecasts' discs I uploaded. So, not wanting to reupload the same thing again I just took the press conference from it and have encoded and upped that for you.

Please don't miss this chance to see it in better quality than youtube for a start! It's a special video for any Dylan fan but it's also interesting to see how times have changed, in the way the people are, the questions they ask's fascinating to me.

The boring Stuff then..

Bob Dylan's 1965 San Francisco Press Conference

When Bob Dylan's five concerts in the San Francisco Bay Area were
scheduled in December 1965, the idea was proposed that he hold a
press conference in the studios of KQED, the educational
television station.

Dylan accepted and flew out a day early to make it.

He arrived early for the press conference accompanied by Robbie
Robertson and several other members of his band, drank tea in the
KQED office and insisted that he was ready to talk about "anything
you want to talk about." His only request was that he be able to
leave at 3 PM so that he could rehearse in the Berkeley Community
Theater where he was to sing that night.

At the conclusion of the press conference, he chatted with friends
for a while, jumped into a car and went back to Berkeley for the
rehearsal. He cut the rehearsal off early to go to the hotel and
watch the TV program which was shown that night and repeated the
following week.

This is the only full length press conference by Dylan ever
televised in it's entirety.

Right then so download it!

GONG - 1995 - 25th Birthday Party (Exclusive!)

Hello hello hello.
It's been a while I know. A hospital appointment here and there and then a trip to the theatre (which was the first time in my life!) to see Carmen the Opera which was a mind blowing experience indeed.
I thought I might be nodding off but after about a minute or so of being there I was loving it.
I'm now planning to see many operas. You may, like me, think opera...naaaa. but you must give it a chance!!!

The whole theatre experience just washed over me and I really got into it.
Anyway today I bring you yet another GONG piece of work but this one is pretty special and was sent to me by a kind guy on another site.
I just have to share it and can tell you it's really good. they play well!
I suspect they probably always play well but this time they play exceptionally well!
