Tonight: Conan Neutron and the Secret Friends at Stage 112

Posted By on Mon, Oct 17, 2016 at 3:59 PM

Conan Neutron and the Secret Friends
  • Conan Neutron and the Secret Friends

Bay-area wunder mensch
Conan Neutron rolls into Missoula Rock City with his band The Secret Friends tonight, Monday Oct. 17 for a Monday Night power blaster at Stage 112 (in the Elks Club). Whether or not  Melvins drummer Dale Crover will be sitting on the drum stool remains shrouded in complete mystery, but regardless, I think the Secret Friends will lay down some powerful rock and roll, along with stalwart Missoulians the Magpies. Crover does play on the new "The Art of Murder" record, which is a body slammer.

I know Conan from his band Replicator, which existed over a decade ago and was kind of a technology-obsessed noise rock sort-of Shellac Jr. That band, Replicator, was a great band and they put on an equally great live show. Since then, Conan's led bands like Mt. Vicious and Victory and Associates, who provided equally high energy live show and a bit more swaggery rock and roll, compared to Replicator's kind of more staccato noise rock attack.
He's also the captain behind the PRFBBQ phenomenon, and became an outgrowth of discussions on Steve Albini's Electrical Audio message board forum,  which is pretty awesome.

You'd be hard pressed to find this kind of rock in many places on a Monday. See you there.

Review: Lydia Loveless' new album, Real

Posted By on Wed, Sep 28, 2016 at 9:53 AM

bs239_lydialoveless_real_lpcover1600_0.jpg

“If I say another word, I know it’ll be my last/ I can tell by the color of your face you’re mad.” These chilling words kick off Real, which—if there’s any justice in this phallocentric world—should be the breakthrough album for Lydia Loveless. Her blunt, achingly emotional lyrics coupled with a powerfully vulnerable voice get bolder with each album. Musically, she’s becoming more sophisticated as well. Where 2014’s Somewhere Else featured a tendency to build two-chord riffs that bloomed into a fuller chorus, this album finds Loveless wearing her musical influences on her sleeve a bit more. The Brit-pop shimmer of “Heaven” beautifully supports a vocal swimming in reverb. “Longer,” with its chewy guitar and snappy drums, sounds like a Nick Lowe song he forgot to bring to Rockpile.

Less thrashy than Somewhere Else, this album has a more textured, pop feel to it. But Loveless is hardly pulling punches: “Sitting in the dark, talking about my plans/ To anyone who can hear over this shitty Indianapolis band.” In the darkly hilarious “Midwestern Guys,” she spits her disdain for men who “want to make love, not fuck” as they go out after dark to look at the stars (“You sure know the way to my heart, honey.”)

Like Lucinda Williams, Liz Phair and other women before her who kicked in the door of music’s boys club with brutally honest poetry, Loveless continues to fearlessly examine the dark corners of her own soul while she grants no quarter for the culprits responsible for that darkness.

Lydia Loveless opens for Drive-By Truckers at the Wilma Wed., Sept. 28. Doors at 7 PM, show at 8. $27-$35.
