Finally returning to Webster Hall in February to catch Silverstein, I was overjoyed to note that 63 years of an age was a good enough reason to slip into the disabled section and get to sit damn near front row! So, if it wasn’t for C19 I’d have been haunting the venue and had tickets for King Krule on Friday. The bad news is it was postponed, the good news is it was postponed till December so it might even happen.
Meanwhile, this is what I said about Archie when I saw him ipoen for Girls (and Real Estate) at Terminal 5 in 2012: (here): “Looking like a cross between Michelle Shocked and Billy Bragg and sounding like the Artful Dodger.The music, cheerfully called Darkwave, is a mix of jazz and lo fi rock, and given the quiet nature of the music, it is to King Krule’s credit they are a mesmerizing band”.
On another note, the abysmal that one world: together at home should put an end to all these streaming in place abominations. After the revolution you and I will own those mansions while the pop stars hang from their diving boards with their disgraceful platitudes about the service industry they enslave stuck like mistletoe right through the place their hearts should be.
simultaneously self-effacing and egomaniacs
essentially a disco remix of “Rocket Man” featuring one of the the UK’s biggest stars…
“I literally really need you to jump up and down”
Friday night might kill us but Thursday evening is a blast
it just isn’t the triumph she needed after six years
an impressive sonic ride.
a high-spirited Post Pandemic anthem
a memorable band who were never better than here
almost Pink Floyd-esque
