Posted on Wednesday, August 31, 2005 - 12:07 pm:   

   By Dave G. on Wednesday, August 31, 2005 - 08:37 am:

Ty did a pretty good "You Can't Always Get What You Want," Marty did an OK, understated "Wish You Were Here," and Suzie did a stoopid, but funnish, over the top "Bohemian Rhapsody." On the downside, J.D. oozed histrionics all over "Suspicious Minds," revealing that he was an Elvis impersonator previously and wanted to do the song as himself for "closure," Jordis gave a goofy grin and flatted her way through "Imagine" and Mig looked like he was on amyl nitrate poppers jumping all over the place and making with the "YEAH"s during a rancid version of McCartney's thoroughly rotten "Live and Let Die." Kirk dissed Mig for singing over the instrumental breaks and one of the guys seemed bugged out by J.D.'s performance, but otherwise it was the usual phony hearts and flowers for everybody, esp. Suzie. Ty, Marty and JD were the early losers...Man, is Ty getting reamed or what?
   By Lucius on Wednesday, August 31, 2005 - 08:47 am:

Well, I think they're keeping Jordis around cause she;s the last woman. Glad I missed Mig. Ty's not gonna win, I'll watch tonight.
   By Minz on Wednesday, August 31, 2005 - 09:07 am:

Dave's almost dead on with his recap. I will say this, Suzie did an amazing job pulling it all back and nailing the ending of Bohemian Rhapsody, even if the rest of the song was a bit overthetop(but not in a bad way). And I think Ty didn't get any kind of a bluesy feel to his song at all. It was a good performance, but if you're singing the Stones, I think you gotta have a little blues in it.

Still, undoubtedly JD, Jordis & Mig were the worst. Not even close.
   By Lucius on Wednesday, August 31, 2005 - 09:23 am:

They always are the worst.
   By Dave G. on Wednesday, August 31, 2005 - 11:13 am:

I still was impressed by Ty's "Maggie May" last week. If all these guys were fronting bands on the strip and I just HAD to pay money to see one of them, it would be Ty. He's come the farthest. At least he's interesting.
   By Lucius on Wednesday, August 31, 2005 - 11:54 am:

I don't know. That living color vibe gets in the way. Brian, i think, has hidden depths.
   By Lucius on Wednesday, August 31, 2005 - 12:05 pm:

RIP Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, dead of Katrina, swept away along with his little cabin on the Gulf.

Who's Brian? I definitely noted a deleterious Living Color influence in Ty early, but he seems to be breaking out of that IMHO.

He's gotta lose the mohawk. Just isn't working for him. He's too bright and shiny, vocally and personality wise. It's jarring in a disjunctive, inauthentic way, rather than jarring in a disruptive, authentic way.

Hey Lucius, is that confirmed about Gatemouth Brown?

In a way, I'm almost happy for him, in that with the lung cancer and emphysema, he was livin on borrowed time. Knowing that God reached out his hand and took him in grand fashion seems a lot more fitting.

Talk about a real American Music Icon. I only saw him once, but I'll always remember it. Sadly enough, it was in New Orleans.

I saw Gatemouth many times and played with him on two occasions--my band backed him up at the Chess Mate in Detroit and The Blind Pig in A2. He was a nice guy. Yup, confirmed.

Funnyish anecdote in the Wash Post magazine about Gatemouth on Sunday. David Segal wrote one of those "my greatest moments" mini-memoirs that, for some reason, rock critics love to write, and he described how hard it was to interview Brown. While Segal was expecting earthy anecdotes all Brown wanted to do was rag on alcoholics and dopers; according to Segal, Brown was a lifelong teetotaler and had no use for them.

Story I was thinking of--we backed up Gatemouth and Howling Wolf on the same bill at the Chess Mate in Detroit, which was a coffeehouse that served no alcohol. So they came in to do soundchecks. Gatemouth shook all out hands and was a nice guy to deal with. Wolf comes up, does his check, and says to me, I hate playing for these goddamn tea parties. He and Gatemouth kept their distance from one another and I guess now that their attitude toward drugs and booze were at the heart of that, because Wolf smoked pretty much all of our dope....

Posted on Thursday, September 01, 2005 - 06:33 am:   

Tell me about it, Ben. these guys sucked me in around week 4. I tend to flip channels between performances, because the rest is such BS.

Last night was wierd. As soon as Ty was called up on stage as one of the bottom three, I started bitchin to Sondi about all how it seemed like racist bs that Ty's always in the bottom three. Ty's been one of the most consistent performers from what I've seen (he's had one bad night that I can remember). And then he took his shot at the racist voters after he got voted off and I was sayin' "Amen, brother." But upon further reflection, since folks are voting for their fav, rather than the one they hate the most, does the race card play a factor? I guess he's losing votes, but in reality, while he's often one of the best performers, I've rarely thought he was the best. I dunno. Any thoughts, or am I just musing about someone with sour grapes?

I did think that Ty was by far the best of the three from last night, though that's not saying much, and it never helps to get the lyrics wrong. (Though didn't someone else survive an INXS wrong lyric gaffe?)

Wow, way too much thinking about drivel...

Posted on Thursday, September 01, 2005 - 06:51 am:   

i thought ty had a point. early on when i was just surfing it, i figured that ty wouldn't get in because he wasn't white enough. it's not a reflection on INXS, since they had trent darby (?) front them for a while, and he's black. but in the audience, the demographic for the show, the stereotypes, alla that...

however, i don't think the hair helped. it was too aggressive, too punk for the audience of pop tha's INXS. i reckon the hair would have turned people off him visually, and there's an element to these shows that means that the visual makeup of an individual keeps them going, where the ugly, non-mainstream and just plain odd jump out early. my other take for him not winning votes is, simply, there's not enough rock/pop in him. in his general make up on that show it's all conflicting signals, punk vs soul vs pop vs race. so i reckon it was a mix of all that did him in.

on the other hand, i thought he did the best of the three in the bottom with the INXS song. and, man, i cannot believe i just typed all this...

Ty is really the only guy who puts his own stamp on performances. For all JD's blather about doing "his own arrangements," he's just another histrionic white boy. Ty's soul inflections really stood out and, yes, maybe branded him as too "different." And, yeah, the hair was goofy.

Watched INXS tonight. Seems that JD feels "Come as You Are" hasn't been slaughtered enough, so he came up with his own lame way to do it.

William Dafoe's love child with one of Santas Little Helpers, should go back to the North Pole. Maybe up there he can write shitty little Christmas jingles?

It seems likely that the last guy, whatever his name is, will win.

I missed JD. What I saw was horrible enough. I am now firmly in Lucius' "Mig must be destroyed" camp. He looked ridiculous trying to be all rootsy and vamping his way through the Black Crowes. Jordis is all clapped out; she looks like she just wants out. She's got nothin' left. Marty is starting to grow tiresome. He has reached that part of the competition where he is acting like the likely winner and that's annoying the f*** out of me. What was up with that weird-ass song he wrote? "You and me/Up in the trees"? He needs a smack.

Who knew? Suzie "Bottom Three" McNeil is starting to look like the thoroughbred of this bunch. Don't count her out.

Marty needs more than a smack. Perhaps, smoked in the head by a tree?

Suzie is definitely the best, but that's not saying shit. Her performance was dull. What's her song about? Staying true to herself? Yeah, right..

Jordis.. yech is right.

Oh, and I must say. I had an amazing time on the weekend. Spent the night on a mountain, in a canyon, under the open stars, on some strong LSD. The stars and everything, was awesome!! It was like I was watching, in the stars, time unfolding in all sorts of directions -- almost circular. I also saw the stars spiraling. I even discovered an entirely new constallation, which I named "the beautiful women constallation", ;) because it looked like the face of a beautiful women, but it was gone as soon as I turned and looked again.:-)

OK, they’re not “new”, but they’re new to me. The Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

Their newest (HOWL) is an “unplugged” interpretation of their ethos, pleasantly engaging folk-rock tunes in the manner of the Bragg/Wilco collaborations, but give their first CD (B.R.M.C.) a spin. It gives Jesus and Mary Chain a run for the money.

9 Songs played here for about a day. Worth looking into?

As for INXS, pardon my cynicism, but these are guys who couldn't get arrested with a trunkful of anthrax, coasting on 20-year old royalties. I'm sure they see this for what it is, a last, desperate gambit to regain some notoriety and maybe a foothold on the Celebrity Mountain. No doubt it's a lark for guys who are probably financially set, nothing more.

9 songs.....I'm of two minds about much of Winterbottom's work. This has lots of sex (kinda boring) and lots of music (okay). Not his best, but it may divert....

The reason JD's still there is because he's probably the handsomest guy there. But he's a total wanker.

Do any of you guys like The Cure?

i been listening to the new black rebel motorcycle club album for a couple of days. i think it's their best so far--and a nice change from the first two.

as soon as mig hits the bottom three, i reckon he's gone. the band keeps telling him he's not playing the right kind of music--he just needs to bottom out on the votes.

I turned it off in the middle of that; I just couldn't stomach it, not even for the laughs.

JD's original song really has come along--for a bit of poprock. The way he was late on about half his cues on Money was rather grating, though.

In the end, our elfin/anime hero Marty will be crowned, as I declared lo those many weeks ago (though my confidence in that pick has wavered a bit--I'm starting to think INXS may want to go with the bad boy, i.e. JD)

I switched it off after Suzie and JD. (I know, I can watch zombies guzzling miles of fresh guts, but I sometimes can't stomach RSINXS...) I don't know how they reacted to Marty (part of my decision to bail was the fact that Marty was doing an acoustic version of that execrable "Trees" song) and Mig, but I was shocked at the positive reception JD got. They sincerely seemed to be not only digging him, but eyeballing "Pretty Vegas" as a new INXS song. Gawd, could JD have leapt to the front of the pack? Are INXS that vacant that they couldn't write their own "Pretty Vegas"? Why do I keep asking these assinine questions?

minz: my money is still on marty, as always, but the bits they're showing on the teev are making jd to be a threat. but i reckon i've come round to lucius' thinking, that it's too much bullshit from him to be taken in by the band. still reckon mustache guy likes him, though.

I don't love Tool anymore. In high school, Tool was one of my favorite bands, but not anymore. Now, they're overrated and so many people's favorite band. Their upcoming album is still being recorded, so it won't be out for a while. Talk about over recording. You're right, they have become pretentious and over produced. But compared to other popular rock bands like Creed, they're pretty good. But that's not saying much, because, although hate may be too strong a word for a band I have no interest in, I think they really, really, really suck.

He also does one on Radiohead, which comes across as just as bitter and aloof.

Here's a quote from his System of a Down rant:

There are plenty of low-wattage individuals who never realize how offensively stupid their favorite band is until some hero like me comes along and snaps them out of it.

He refers to himself as a hero...:-)

I think System's first two albums are good for what they are. Now they've become too top 40 and mainstream. But as mainstream bands go, Radiohead and System are some of the best...


I think he's actually quite a lot like the Tool fans he makes fun of.

I'd have to agree, Marty got lucky. He's become a marketable vehicle without the weight of being the lead for the ultimate INXS cover band. He's free to pursue his own career, and has developed his craft and reputation. In five years, INXS could be opening for him.

Minz, I'm not sure there's no ego involved, but Lucius is funny.

Lucius, are you serious? You really think Barty would of classed 'em up? I think he'd be the right kind of tool, for their shitty band. But classy?

Anyway, I hope I'm not exposed to any of the music that Marty, J.D. and the inxs boys are involved with. But, because they were on T.V. they'll probably do reasonably well finacially, at first.

Marty would definitely class up INXS

It's all about je nec't ce quoi, man. I think Marty may have hidden depths.

i thought the same, stephen. just something. but i reckon INXS would've had to become a totally different band to work with him. which, y'know, would've been the way to go.

I don't necessarily like him. I think all during the show he was hiding a preference for a more cutting edge music.

Are you getting your email?

Lucius was swayed by the quasi-goth rendition of "Hit Me Baby, One More Time..." :-)

I actually didn't love his perfs, I thought he was hiding his true nature....
