I was listening to Los Angeles today and realized just how much organ is really on that record...so my question is did X ever play live with an organ player? If so, are there any recordings of this around?
x-posted to x_wildgift_x
howdy y'all, I'm new here and I thought I'd tell a few quick run ins with Exene... she had a secret poetry reading at this little coffee shop near her house in the Palisades (at least I assume she lives there because I can't really fathom why else she'd be up there) and my girlfriend and I happened to be getting coffee so we got to sit in on her poetry reading... simply fantastic as usual. And another one, slightly embarrasing... my old band, the Black Jack Gypsies played at a school fair because the guitarist thought it would be a "great idea". Exene's son apparently went to the school and they had come back to see the festivities of the day and so Exene saw the band play. I see her around a lot though. And I just met John Doe last week. but enough star fucking.... just thought I'd stop and say hello.

met dj last weekend!!!!!|
Oh, two more things about the concert..
John Doe did his own sound check. heh. And I was the only one who seemed to notice. I could've sworn it was him, and, yes.
Also, there were many people who got up and danced in the back of the theater, and to the left of the stage during the show. At first I thought it was rubes leaving and shifting around during the show, but, neh.
I Met John Doe...|
I met one of my heroes on Saturday: John Doe.
He signed the sleeve of the 7-inch I bought from the merch. lady out in front of the theater.
It's music he did for the movie "The Red Right Hand"(har.)
This concert kicked so much ass. He did some stuff from his new record: Forever Hasn't Happened Yet, and alot of X songs: Burning House Of Love(2nd. song, just him and an acoustic guitar on stage..ooh), 4th. of July, Poor Little Girl(blazin' version with his band on hand, from the album 'More Fun In the New World'), and White Girl(there was a rather annoying man in his 50's sitting directly behind me that keep calling out: 'White Girl!', even while Mr. Doe was talking. He said: "Any requests?" Guess what this guy yelled?Maybe they were planning on playing the song beforehand, though. So this guy of course about loses it when it's played(right after the request question too).
So I go backstage, as is offered as an option at these Sings Like Hell shows. And I stand, psyching myself up, waiting for about 10-15 min. Snack on some RedHots and goldfish offered at the tables. Then, here he comes, all laid-back and shiny new ideas-feeling. I wait patiently for others to regale him with stories of "I saw you at.." and ask for autographs. He sees me, standing by and listening. Then, finally, he apologizes, to me, I think, (for such a long wait?). I approach and offer up a "Will you favor me greatly by signing this?" He does so, I recount the spelling of my name. I say "Thank you so much". He says: "Anything else I can do for you at all? Any questions?" I say: "I'm just kind of in awe..
He said: "Well, I'm flattered, a couple of young kids like yourselves.."(looking at my companion and I).
He asked if I was sure, and I said it was alright, and thanked him again. Then we left, me thinking of myself as a bit of a moron for not coming up with one question, but under the circumstances, looking back, I suppose I did alright.
My companion said there was some quality about John Doe that made him just grin.
I knew exactly what he was talking about.
Knitters on tour!|
I will finally be able to see John and Exene live...the Knitters are on tour and will be playing in Toronto at Lee's palace on August 7th.
Not X, but I still nearly pooped myself when I saw the listing for this in the weekly paper. I can't wait.
Current Mood: bouncy
Current Music: the Pagans
people here should check out sound_rationale
great community, cool people, and plenty of music discussed all the time. i know of at least two huge X fans there myself, and do enjoy myself Los Angeles once in a while.
not sure if this is an X community or just a general music one, but anyway, try it out, it's pretty damn awesome once you get in
