A belated shout for...

Stephen Bruton, a real-life guitar hero who played with everyone from Kris Kristofferson to Elvis Costello, died Saturday [May 9th] in Los Angeles.

The Fort Worth native was 60 and had been in California working on the soundtrack to Jeff Bridges' new movie, Crazy Heart, said his wife of 13 years, Mary Keating-Bruton.
[Fort Worth Star-Telegram]

RIP

Completely unrelated, but sorta cool: the GG Allin and Tesco Vee bobbleheads you see up there.

Keane and The Helio Sequence play Radio City Music Hall on Wednesday.

Momus is performing a three-hour career retrospective at the Highline Ballroom tonight; check out a poster for the event, below...

Thrones opened for A Storm of Light and Wolves in the Throne Room at Europa the other night. Video below...

Loxsly and Linfinity? Too confusing

Anyone know the set times for Wolves in the Throne Room? I would like to not miss Krallice. The Webster site only says doors at 7, but not the show start time.

Posted by noamjamski | May 26, 2009 5:11 PM

Don't hold me to this, but:

745 ASoL
835 Krallice
940 Wolves in the Throne Room

Caught Linfinity last week at this residency and they were really great. People should definitely try and come out - they have such an amazing sound.

didn't gg allin used to eat his own shit on stage?

Posted by Anonymous | May 26, 2009 6:45 PM

exerpt from an internet bio i found on GG Allin-

"By the mid to late 1980s, Allin was a heroin addict, alcoholic and general abuser of any intoxicants provided to him. He was poorly groomed and rarely cleaned himself. At this point, Allin also began eating laxatives before performances - as defecation was becoming a regular stage act, as well as urinating in sexual partners' rectums"

The world is a better place without GG Allin! I'm glad he's gone and I hate all of his fans. Mind you, I never talk like this and he is the only pop icon I feel this way about.

gg allin is a hack

Posted by Anonymous | May 27, 2009 11:55 AM

GG Allin was nothing more than the Marilyn Manson of his generation. Anyone who feels otherwise is fooling themselves into thinking that their own life has more legitimacy than it actually does.

Posted by Anonymous | May 27, 2009 1:43 PM

GG was the greatest performer to come out of the punk rock movement. anyone who disagrees is ignorant, and fails to have a true understanding of what punk is/was all about.

Posted by Anonymous | May 27, 2009 3:52 PM

Marilyn Manson has made a fuck of a lot more money than G.G. Allin ever did; whether you think that is a good or bad thing is up to you. He wrote a few better tunes, too. "Great Big White World" was pretty aces. Actually _Mechanical Animals_ was a pretty good album, come to think of it.

Posted by Dr. Benway | May 27, 2009 4:19 PM

Punk rock has already gone back on all it was supposed to be about -- just look at that pathetic beer-bellied John Lydon married to a woman old enough to be his granny because she is rich -- and those gawdawful Sex Pistol reunion tours. I'd rather listen to Iggy Pop sing French ballads on his new album, which is a more truly "punk" move in attitude than any younger bands I see making right now. Nick Zedd already said all that needed to be said about G.G. Allin.

Posted by Dr. Benway | May 27, 2009 4:23 PM

Anyone who think punk was a "movement" or who thinks that modern day punk bears any semblance to the punk of the late 70's/early 80's has a lack of perspective, a failed understanding of music as it relates to social movements, and lives such a very fragile life that an anonymous comment on the internets is enough to make them defensive.

Posted by Anonymous | May 27, 2009 4:35 PM

I agree with 3:52. In terms of performance, very few have ever rivaled GG. His shows were dangerous (I say this having been urinated on by him, along with the rest of the first few rows in the crowd, at some dive bar in upstate NY many many years ago ...). Musically, he sometimes hit the nail on the head, but more often than not, bordered on pathetic.
The best examples of leaders of the "movement" (get off your high horse 4:23) are: The Dils, The Weirdos, Avengers, Crime, and Negative Approach.

Punk rock is in a sad state currently, and I haven't heard a true punk band that has excited me in way too long. oh well.

Posted by Anonymous | May 27, 2009 4:40 PM

what about The Necros?

Posted by Anonymous | May 27, 2009 4:43 PM

Dave Gahan is the true PUNK by being too stoned out on smack to tour and make Martin Gore more millions and millions that he craves. Gahan is a true fuck-up in the Sid Vicious tradition.

TEENAGE HEAD, NOW THERE WAS A PUNK BAND!

tHE "MOVEMENT" IN PUNK WAS A BOWEL MOVEMENT. tHEN IT WAS OVER.

Posted by GOOFI | May 27, 2009 5:12 PM

Punks reminiscing about the "good old days" are just as pathetic as baby boomer hippies trying to relive their bland, white Woodstock days.

Your "movement" is over.
It was a fraud to begin with.
Get over it.
