Great band, great review!
Let's just keep over generalizing people and say that only middle aged men say "rave" anymore. Seriously, this article is a very poor representation of the magic that is BassBoat.
What a Bazaar article about Bassboat. Pretty positive, but with kind of condescending undertones.
Just one example:
'the decorations are absurdly sparse for a rave.'
Was the amazing scenery of Flathead Lake not enough?
People come far and wide for this amazing experience, from as far as Canada and California.
It isn't just some 'rave'.
This is a community experience like none other!
Next up ought to be the CIA infiltration of the anti-war scene in Missoula during the late
I never thought of those questions Grohl asked, mentioned in the first paragraph, as a distraction. For instance, getting the musician to feel it, or find the sweet spot, is in my opinion the single most crucial part of making great recordings (Sound City was a recording studio after all and had great success in it's day). As far as the analog question is concerned, digital was the straw that broke the camels back and spelled the end of Sound City, therefore a crucial part of the Sound City story. Sound City is a great movie, but I believe it's geared more towards music production/audiophile types. It's interesting wondering what my reaction to the movie would have been if I hadn't been into the technical side of music production; being as I am into those things, I loved every minute.
When I previously commented, I listed the two obvious touching contributions of the book. Now that I' continue to reflect on it, I realize there were two more: (1) the admirable, rugged, high plains mentality of the Montana people, and (2) the psyche, camaraderie, and work of the Smoke Jumpers. Now, I think I understand who they are and more precisely what they do.
I don't read the progressive Independent but I do thank them for at least recognizing Jerry
My next cool one will be for you ///////////////
I'd like to add a shameless plug for Dudley Chicoine at Tech1 Electronics. He's my big brother, and I've watched him tinkering with stereo equipment for as long as I can remember. He taught me how to care for my 45s and my very first albums. He definitely DOES know his stuff! I don't think there's anyone else out there who does what he does.
For perhaps the worst three years of the 'Secret War' (1970 - 73) I was one of Jerry's favorite Air America pilots for 'behind the lines' recon flights and actual pickup and drop-off of Hmong soldiers (close enough to the fighting that parked on the ground unloading troops, hunks of dirt from incoming NVA or Pathet Lao grenades was hitting the side of my PC6 Porter).
I bought the book, and read it, and was very much impressed! Not so much about the 'war,' I already knew that - but: (1) about the Montana boy Gayle allows us to know, and does so in the most novel and artful and effective way, and (2) the plight and humanity of the Hmong people!
Kudos to the construction and assembly of a story that deserved telling.
makes me want to read this book. Actually, I have wondered why the large pop. of Hmong in Missoula?
And to think we knew you when......we love and admire you, Sara and Ron
Anaconda Mining did not own the Great Falls Tribune, which was arguably the state's most-important newspaper, e.g. Joseph Kinsey Howard
Wish I could be there for your lecture, Doc! All best from Washington, DC. - Lilly
The record is about his father's passing last winter and Ty's subsequent falling out with his mother. Also, what on earth is that first paragraph supposed to mean?
excellent written piece on Chuck and his band who are just storming gigs this year possibily his best band to date great guitar duels and an awesome album release always a great gig he never lets you down
I gave up looking for the "next dylan" when I heard Chuck. there is something undeniably both familiar and original in his vast body of work. He can be both deep and snarky, devoted and jaded , all at the same time and don't get me started on his guitar hook skills. He never seems to take himself too seriously , even when releasing some of the best produced cds out there. His band, the Mission Express, back him perfectly.
Yup! That is one review for the books. In a nutshell this is why Chuck is the best in the biz today. What a great review Mr. Cohen! You need a bigger venue!
I don't believe this. A music writer finally hits the Chuck Prophet nail on the head. Mr. Cohen, today we raise our glass to you.
Mr. Cohen's boss, today you should just give Mr. Cohen a raise.
