Subject: jbc news 10...
well. got back about 2:30 last night from what was probably the
best jbc show in recent years...
i got there a little late, but the aeroplanes hadn't gone on yet,
so i stopped the roadie, and asked where martin and pat and all
were, that i was a friend of david's, and i got taken downstairs
to where they all were, and talked with the guys for about
15 minutes or so... great bunch, i must say... the friend who came
with me thinks pat is a laugh a minute, as do i... told the story of
the "night porter from hell" at eh place they stayed in l.a.
apparently the guy put them in the wrong room about 2 or 3 times..
but: the show... i don't know the names of many of the aeroplanes'
songs, but they played about a 1 hour set, with lots of great tunes.
played you (are loved) and _and stones_, which was incredible live....
angelo jsut tore it up, and the crowd went crazy... i think they
got a lot of new fans this show... not many of the peope there knew
of them... they were there to see the jbc...
the faster songs (bigfoot motel, lot 49, room 109, etc) were _wild_
i get eh feeling pat was saving up for this show.. not something to be
missed... the slower songs were perfect... i would easily say this was
the best show i have _ever_ been to.
the first, pat and laurence do "crocodile tears and the velvet cosh",
introduced as "a bob dylan song, i think" they lowered a trash can
onto pat's head... all this being filmed by angelo with julian's camcorder
second "caroline wheeler's" with _8_ guitarists, a mechanical
alligator and talcum powder on the drumset. pat looked like a
looney who had just gained admission into heaven. a happy man, if
i ever saw one.
third "sweet jane" with _everyone_ on stage, flailing madly
pat lectured the crowd about biodregradalbe fish in elevators,
screwed around with lyrics, and generally looked like he was having
a hell of a good time. someone gave him a bottle of whisky, which
he declared to be "a big mistake. whisky makes me hyper"
pat is the physical incarnation of outgoing. this man would stop
axe-murderers in the street to talk...
overall, i wouldn't have missed the show for the world...
"do you know what happens when a fish sits too long in an elevator?"
