Silver Apples @ Knitting Factory in June (more by Zach Dilgard)
Silver Apples

Flower Travellin' Band won't be here, but the The Third Annual Halleluwah Festival goes on, this weekend at the Knitting Factory in NYC. According to the venue, the current lineup is:

Nov 22 - Grails, Silver Apples, White Rainbow, Nudge, Pigeons, Hard Bop, Dinowalrus, DJs Marty McSorely & Thanksgiving Brown

Nov 23 - Gods & Monsters, Martin Bisi, Apse, White Rainbow, Nancy Garcia, The Low Suns, Max Ochs

The venue's website actually still also lists Silver Summit for Sunday, but I'm pretty sure they won't be there and the festival's MySpace does seem to have removed them.

For Silver Apples, Saturday night's show will be the second in two days. The first was Friday night at Brainwaves in MA. On December 2nd, Simeon (Mr. Silver Apples) will also supposedly be doing this:

At The Kitchen, Silver Apples will perform a re-creation on the Mune Toon concert in 1969. This event was part of the official New York City celebration of the landing on the moon that took place in Central Park in July of 1969. At the moment that Niel Armstrong stepped onto the surface of the moon Simeon and Danny burst into this free-form-rock electronic instrumental that was scheduled for only 16.8 minutes, but actually went well into the morning. It is said many babies were conceived in the bushes that night!
The event is listed on The Kitchen's website as An Evening with Farimani. Tickets are at Ticketweb.

Silver Apples' only other upcoming shows are in January in Australia. The occasion is the ATP fest happening there that was curated by Nick Cave. All dates below...

Many of the dusty old farts still bring the funk and the commitment and the reality.

Most of today's bands just bring the image and the hype and the quickly vanishing sugar high.

Big difference.

Julian Cope on Mac:

"I gots to tell y’all that when I heard the other day that the Bunnymen’s Ian McCulloch is writing his autobiography, I nearly shat my undies laughing so hard (good job I don’t wear any!); Ian Mac write a book? A man for whom completing a single song on his own is a struggle of Everest the Hard Way proportions is hardly going to write a book. Ian, I’m speechless at your continued arrogance in the face of no evidence whatsoever. In my opinion, you’ve been a dried-up shell of a husk of a man since just after OCEAN RAIN, so don’t embarrass us all with your ludicrous claims that you’re gonna write an autobiography. Two words… No Way. Writing a book involves discipline and hard work, two things you never nailed in the past and never will. As I heard it, you even said in the press that your book will be better than the Bible. Well, in two ways it may well be like the Bible: 1) it’ll be full of half-truths and outright lies, and 2) it’ll have been written by umpteen uncredited writers and you’ll name yourself solely as its author. There you go, dumkopf, I just handed you the map: don’t even bother buying yourself a pen, son; just do what you’ve always done throughout your career; get someone else to do most of the work then claim all the credit yourself. I even have a title already: MAC USER. And with that, I shall sweep off into the Beltane sunset. Yowzah!"
