Music Monday – All the Groove you need

I remember seeing flyers around town in 1990/91 for The Brian Jonestown Massacre when I lived in San Francisco. The name alone!!! Brilliant.

on Anemone – “Drenched in opiates and regret, I heard this song once and became besotted by it. It sounds like lost love, past lives, unforgiven mistakes and transgressions.” — Anthony Bourdain (RIP)

I'm a rock-n-roller poet who left the Big Apple for the Big Sky Desert where I've been letting it be and grooving with universal love, singing to the gods, dancing with the muses and bicycling with dreamtime messengers. I like altering my reality through imagination, movement, breath, and makin' stuff.

        1. I started watching Dig! Made it in about twenty minutes – I’ve known so many people like Anton, I had to look at something else. Shit – I’ve been in bands with people like Anton – come to think of it – was in a band with and lived with someone like Anton for seven years. Maybe the story was too close to home. 🙂

          Watched part 1 of a Paul McCartney Documentary instead – that was really inspiring.

          Does Dig! get better, or does it just follow stoned grandiose wankers around for an hour and forty-five minutes? Maybe I can watch in small doses. You have great taste, so I may forge on in doses.

          Am I getting old? LOL

          1. Ha! Oh, if anything, they descend into deeper and deeper wankerism, to be honest, Holly! I would agree that we all have met an Anton and perhaps that is the car crash element that I enjoy in DIG. Well, that and the stoned grandiosity! The play-off between the Dandy Warhols [“Holes, as in holes. Warhol” ;)] to me is refreshing as it’s a bit more rnr than the oasis/blur nonsense of yore… in that at least the Dandys and the Brian Jonestown are interesting and proper rnr bands.

            I have watched it several times over the years and will revisit before the end of this one…maybe I will see it with fresh eyes.

            1. I will watch in spurts – LOL – I suppose spurts was the same way I used to do my drugs, too. Never more than two days in a row at least!! (so long ago – got over that before I was 20)

              OOH! I’ve so been enjoying the McCartney documentary – I’m glad they put it out before he dies. They do make him out to be a bit of an angel, though I think it’s less about personal drama and more about his creative process and enjoying the job of being a songwriter/bass player/singer/band leader.

              I remember I bought an Oasis CD back in the 90s. What is all the hype about? I wondered. I brought the cd back to the shop to return it. I said – I’d like to return this, there’s something wrong with the cd. Shop guy says – Oh? What’s wrong? I say – It sucks. Shop guy laughs, takes the cd, and gives me my money back.

              Though now, in my old age, when I listen to Oasis, I say – Yeah, these are good songs. They just weren’t a proper rnr band.

              I was such a music snob when I was younger. Now I’m more interested in the fun aspect of music making and creativity in general.

              1. Haha! Troy, I knew you were an ace! I bought the first Oasis album the week it came out as NME just ramped them up so much as ‘the future of rnr’ – I saved the listening to it all week as I remember…put it on…played it a few times that night and thought, “nah, this is the end of rnr’!! Wish i’d thought to do as you did!

                Hm, I will check the Macca doc as the way you tell it it sounds v. interesting.

                Peas & loaf xo
