I went and saw Jeff Lang play last night in Noosa.
Not a Vincent to be heard. He had obviously spent too long with the hippies at Woodford.
The 2 guys he played with were totally hella way talented, 1 on a kora (?) a West african 21 string gourd & 1 on the Afghani Tabla drums. Again amazing musos talent & skill up the ying-yang.
But not what I went to see.
Fricken mung beans - oughta be a law!

A few years back I went & saw Mr. Bungle play in Brisvegas. Mike Patton from Faith No More in an Uber Funk outfit.The show coincided with the launch of the 2nd album which was (I'm sad to say)truly shite. I acepted that it'd mostly be 2nd album gear, but hoped for a few tracks from the 1st. Anyway the crowd is chanting "Egg," Love is a fist,"& "girls of Pr0n," etc the track titles from the 1st album & Mr. Patton says "This ain't a juke box - we play what we want to play. If you want to choose go home & put on a CD.
Harsh, but a fair point.

I hear ya 'bout the jukebox thing. Kinda why I resist going to see bands if I know all I will want to see/hear are the 'hits'.

Too bad about Jeff. He can be very hit and miss sometimes. But was eager to see him with those other 2 guys - there were posters all over Woodford about it.

Hey Blue Box. Happy New Year.

Top tunes.

Sorry, on re-read sounds like I was bummed by Jeff.
Not the case - more dissapointed with the gig.
Though I would have liked him to play a few of the tracks I know - the dude is a fretboard god & pretty much worth watching on his worse day.

Oh dear. My musical tastes really are embarrassing.

At least they make me happy, I guess. ;)
