Liat Shamay

March 2nd, 2009


I know nothing about this girl. I think I have seen her once on T.V performing this song and I just loved it. I heard other songs of hers on myspace but I love the bare performance. I don’t care for the more produced stuff. For me, that`s her sound and I don’t think she needs the fancy photos either. Listen to “Thousand voices”

Thousand Voices

Dear mom

March 2nd, 2009

Film director Spike Lee commissioned New Orleans native Terence Blanchard to compose the score for his 2006 four-hour award-winning HBO documentary “When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts”, to show the agony of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. In 2007 Blanchard recorded “A Tale of God’s Will”, which contains parts (“The Water,” “Levees,” “Wading Through” and “Funeral Dirge”) of the recording that were heard in Spike Lee’s documentary. Terence Blanchard mother Wilhelmina lost her Pontchartrain Park home in the tragedy, but thankfully survived with her life,[2] closes the recording with “Dear Mom,” which is Blanchard’s heartfelt tribute to his mother. dear_mom

More about “Such”

March 1st, 2009


….And more about my Such release, distributed by Subpop. This was a put it in the drawer project till I got a call from Seattle (20 years later) from a guy called Dennis White who put all this energy into researching old reel to reel tapes, remastering and remixing, collecting information, photos and copyright details, closing dist and promotional deals and releasing our songs ( Such ) and then pushing it like a madman. ….and last but not least donating all moneys coming from the project to Aids related needs. By the way, this is a photo of me during the Such days.
….”The rest of the album brings us to the point in Upchuck’s career that he started moving away from basic punk-rock and into a more layered and sophisticated sound. That doesn’t mean the music is any less inspired. ‘Innocence’ sounds like a song that was already a hit, and ‘Backbiting’ is something you’d expect if you went to a creepy dark and dank nightclub filled with ghouls. Kind of like any fetish nightclub. These songs and three others were recorded after Upchuck had left Seattle for New York City and formed the band Such with Shlomo Sonnenfeld. They’re really well-produced by John Holbrook who is still a big shot in the music business. All but one of the Such songs were written by Upchuck and Sonneneld, who I associate more with hip-hop than the post-punk, glam sounding stuff on this CD. ‘New Creation’ comes close to pop-music territory, but it still rocks and has got the most spacey, psychedelic break in it…complete with what sounds like a cello on LSD. ‘Egyptian Rat’ combines glam-punk with an Eastern melody and even has Arabic sounding background vocals that at first I found irritating, but after a few listens have come to love. My favorite song on the entire album is probably the least punk. It’s the total glam rock anthem-sounding song ‘(It’s) Five O’clock‘. According to friends o Upchuck this song was recorded just as he was getting sick from AIDS. His voice isn’t at it’s best since he had TB when he sang it. But that only adds to the….can I say “poignancy”? The song is sad and uplifting at the same time. When I first heard it I thought of Mick Ronson, Marc Bolan or Johnny Thunders…all musicians with very different styles, but all glam-rockers who died far too soon. The saddest part about ‘Five O’clock’ is that Upchuck knows that he’s going to die soon. In the chorus he sings:
“It’s so hard to believe that this is me…don’t fade.
It’s so hard to believe that this is the way it has to be”….

Loser`s lounge

March 1st, 2009

Back in NYC I had a good friend, Keyboard player, roommate named Joe Mcginty. When we would go out and see a beautiful girl accompanied by a guy, we would say: ” What is she doing with this loser? Later on Joe took this Loser thing a step further and formed The Loser`s lounge. Check it out. This became a cult thing in NYC years ago
Loser’s Lounge is a bi-monthly tribute show & band based in New York City where local talent pays homage to the pop music greats of the past.
Loser’s Lounge was started in 1993 by session keyboardist Joe McGinty (Psychedelic Furs, The Ramones, Ryan Adams) and psycho-cabaret singer Nick Danger. Since 1993, the Loser’s Lounge has performed nearly 300 shows honoring 50 different artists, from ABBA to the Zombies, sometimes with the honorees present: Lee Hazlewood, Paul Williams and Denny Doherty (of the Mamas and Papas) all enthusiastically attended their own tribute nights.
Sometimes famous people stop by to sing (Nellie McKay, the late Joey Ramone, Andy Richter, Parker Posey, Debby Harry, Fred Armisen, J Mascis and They Might Be Giants) but it’s the talented group of regulars that consistently bring the house down.
Come hear for yourself!!!
