ARTHUR NASSON @ GOOGIES, JULY 31st @ 9:30 (no cover)



His work is sometimes explosive, sometimes witty, occasionally sensitive, and always satisfying!

ARTHUR NASSON’S CD “BATTLE OF MELROSE STREET” was recorded in late 2005. It’s nearly three years later and critics around the world are discovering this, “genre bounding, funny, and endlessly inventive," record. (Harp) Critics have compared him to Warren Zevon, an un-hinged Dylan, and have rated the record’s artistic merits to be on par with the Beatles in their prime. Not bad for a stay-at-home dad living in suburban Boston, making records in his basement between laundry and Spongbob.

NASSON has spend the better part of the last few years promoting the album himself, cold-calling magazines and other publications. Some early and notable champions such as NPR (Hear and Now) and HARP Magazine have set off an ever-growing wellspring of attention. And two entire albums have been licensed to MTV’s “Made” and “My Super Sweet Sixteen”.

The music on THE BATTLE OF MELROSE STREET is reflective of a broad spectrum of influences. On the volatile, Waitsian album opener “POSTCARD FROM A NEVER ENDING DAY”, Nasson revisits the experimental jazz he explored on STATIC ORANGE BOX, while “MEMORY GIRLS” and “ALMOST SUBURBIA” recall melodically-minded rock groups from the sixties like THE BYRDS and THE KINKS. He takes a jab at constructed Americana, pedal steel and all, on the satirical “ASSHOLE WAGON”. He maintains a DIY-aesthetic throughout the album, which was recorded on an 8-track cassette deck with an $80-mic. The result is a rough, raw, homemade sound with melodic sensibilities.

“I'm amazed at how many people are discovering and enjoying my music,” says Nasson. “I get emails from fans all over the world. It's beyond thrilling how positive the response has been." Which further supports the fact that good music is timeless and has NO expiration date.


“Perfect pop, richly arranged Technicolor songs performed entirely by Nasson, without machines, it's no more artistic or less accessible than the multi-million selling albums the Beatles made in their prime." _THE BOSTON HERALD

“... genre bounding, funny, and endlessly inventive.” _HARP

“Like an unhinged Dylan, hammering a jazz piano, Nasson has a great ear for a tune and seems willing to try anything once in order to make one, resulting in a fine aural burst of entertainment." _AMERICANA UK

“Nasson can turn a clever phrase...I’d put him more in the category of Warren Zevon than Bob Dylan. (In fairness to Americana UK, I think they were referring to his ‘great ear for a tune and [the] willingness to try anything once to make one.’) In no way, though, does that detract from the catchiness of his music.” _CONCRETE CIRCLES

“His lyrics are clever and the music somewhat different than a lot of what I hear. You've got to be real unhinged to be more unhinged than Dylan!” _ ERIC AKIN, Blogger

“[The Battle of Melrose Street]... strangely charming, in its own peculiar way.” _CLOUDS & CLOCKS, Italy

"A prodigious and sometimes daunting talent" _GOOD TIMES Magazine

i was gonna say 'no way irving plaza is worst' until i saw it was webster. lol yeah.

Far from the worst venue ever. There is always Roseland and Terminal 5. Webster is also better than Hammerstein.

Posted by Anonymous | July 21, 2008 2:55 PM

No, no, no: Term 5 is the WORST!

yeah i agree it's not that bad of a bust
i guess it lacks the intamacy of most of the other venues we frequent but it's a pretty place
and i've still yet to hear really bad sound that ppl always talk about
maybe it's cuz i'm always in front
