Great Gaylord @ the Bell House
Great Gaylord & The Condo Fucks

After a raucous, sold-out first night of Norton's 25th Anniversary celebration at the Bell House, the party continued at the Brooklyn venue on Friday (11/11) where once again the night was opened by The Nor-Tones ("Norton's all-employee band includes members of the Little Killers, Daddy Long Legs, Stalkers, Girls At Dawn and LiveFastDie playing the hits of the Norton catalog.")

Night two also featured a set by mysterious cover band the Condo Fucks (aka Yo La Tengo) with Great Gaylord ("the Greatest Lousy Singer of all time"?). For the Condo Fucks it was their second NYC show in a short amount of time, though their first one at Mercury Lounge was sans Gaylord. Yo La Tengo will play eight more sold out shows over Hanukkah at Maxwell's (where Sunday's Norton show headliner The Sonics played on Saturday).

Also on the Friday night bill, some of which fell under the "R&B/Soul revue" umbrella, was Jackie and the Cedrics, a new lineup of Greg Cartwright's band Reigning Sound (featuring members of The Jay Vons), Mark Sultan (aka BBQ whose old partner King Khan played the night before), Lonnie Youngblood and the Bloodhounds with special guest Mick Collins (of the Gories and the Dirtbombs) on guitar, The Mighty Hannibal, Andre Williams (who also stopped by the night before), and Happy Organ man Dave "Baby" Cortez on keys.

Who played the big tenor sax?
It was a great night. Mark Sultan got all pissy but still delivered a great set. Reigning sound had the worst vocals and were the first band that really tried to sing. During the R&B/ Soul revue Greg Cartwright was standing in the back. I almost asked-- do you want to be wheeled out like these guys in 20-30 years. HOnest question, but couldnt make it sound less obnoxious. Then again the show ran 6.5 hours. Tired but satisfied

What time did Daft Punk go on?

I tried to do research on the members of The Bloodhounds without much luck (or sleep). All I could find was Lonnie Youngblood and Mick Collins (The Dirtbombs, ect.)on guitar. The Mark Sultan comments were great. He was just a little too far away to get any shots.

Not actually the Bloodhounds, Lonnie Youngblood's very capable backing band, but a kind of a hastily assembled group led by Mick Collins. Baritone sax: Paula Henderson (Melvin Van Peebles' band, etc.) Tenor sax: Lonnie, guitar: Bruce Bennett (A-Bones, Action Swingers) Bass: Marcus "The Carcass" Natale (A-Bones, Figures of Light) drums: Sam Baker (Heavy Trash, Lambchop), lead guitar: Mick Collins.

Picked up the Dave "Baby" Cortez album with Lonnie Youngblood and the Bloodhounds. It's awesome.

Aha! Thanks for the info. I though it might be some sort of all-star type lineup.
