Subject: cond. blue, tour '92
>what did you think of Condition Blue?
i felt that condition blue was one of jb's better albums, containing some of
the bands finest tunes (shirley maclaine, racheland, girls say yes). i dig the
sampling on "our friends the filth" (what tune is being sampled ?). One of the
tracks "monkeyface" sounds like a cult of the basement outtake. all in all i
found it to be a fine album however it seemed to lack the continuity of cult.
also i thought the cover art was kind of lame.
>did you see them on the 92tour?
of all the jazz butcher shows i've seen, 1992 made 4, i thought that the most
recent was the best i've witnessed. i saw them at the Roxy in Hollywood, an
excellent venue for this type of show. j.b. played a great selection of songs
including angels, big saturday, pinapple tuesday, falling in love, looking for
lot 49, human jungle, girlfriend, and many more jbc classics.
the opening band, the black watch, was outstanding. the blue aeroplanes
opened the year before, while i like their music, i must admit a slight
irritation over their 'dancer'. they employ a band member to dance to the
music, that's all he does, no tamborine, no nothing, just dancing.
he kept spraying sweat all over the first few rows of people, i don't need
