DBT Week in Review - 2/19/2010


So very rare that I get to lead with something Cooleyish.

Not 1 but 2 cool Cooley related bits.

1. Enjoy Yourself:

D-B Truckers on Record Store Day on Blurt Online:
"'It's not an album, it's not a full-length record. It's not even an EP,' he says. 'There's no way I can describe it. You'll think I'm fucking with you if I start describing it. You'll just have to see. The only thing I'll tell you is this - it's high art.'"

2: Vintage Cooley covering REM with a nascent Stained Mecca circa 1988: - Message Board • View topic - Raleigh 02/12/10-02/13/10:
"Great Show last night!

One amazing song after another...can't believe I waited so long to see them headline a gig.

A friend wasn't able to claim an extra, so after listening to my 9 yo tell me for almost a full hour, 'I wanna go...can't I go...why can't I go...etc', the wife and I gave in.
So, Sam, my 9 yo son, popped his cherry with The Truckers.
After the show was over, he said, 'I will remember this for the rest of my life!'

I was actually amazed by how nice folks were with him.
I can't count the amount of 'Rock on little guy!' he got. I said, it was an AMAZING show all around!"

And, because I think I grabbed this off his page....


Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit

Daniel Wolff: Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit:
"'Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit” is a mystery. The first time I heard it, the last time, and the countless times in between, it sounded both uncannily familiar and absolutely fresh. I can explain that a little – and I can suggest some of the issues and emotions the music raises -- but when all is said and done, the record remains a mystery. And I believe that’s deliberate."


Dexateens making a run for the border!

The Knack lead singer Doug Fieger dies - Yahoo! News:
"WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. – Doug Fieger, leader of the power pop band The Knack who sang on the 1979 hit 'My Sharona,' died Sunday. He was 57.

Fieger, a Detroit-area native, died at his home in Woodland Hills near Los Angeles after battling cancer, according to The Knack's manager, Jake Hooker."

Muscle Shoals.... Clothes

Reid wins designer award | | The Times Daily | Florence, AL:
"He said Reid has mastered the use of familiar fabrics such as tweed, plaid and denim. He tweaks classic designs, such as adding red plaid piping on a pea coat and lining its flaps with leather rather than fabric, or a moleskin jacket with a surprisingly contemporary lining in red and navy check cotton.

'He's a gentleman who thinks in a very modern way,' Moore said. 'We just love the fact you can go into a Billy Reid store and be a 20-something hipster or ... a guy looking for a business suit. He's going to inspire men who don't want to look cookie-cutter. His clothes are steeped in such incredible style ... that makes you want to buy them.'"

I'm so excited about the Cooley thing that I can't even come up with a good metaphor.

That Cooley video was 'AWESOME'...
Nice work J.

AAW said...

Whoa. Two PGs.

Grumbine, this will be so awesome that it may over shadow the awesomeness of the main album.

Peter G. I hope the white male perm comes back into style. ;-)

Don't wait JPW. I think you could pull off a white male perm. Come on now, do it. And post pics.


AAW said...

I need that 18 year old hair again, dlc, to hold the perm. This nearly 40 mop is hanging on by a thread as is.

But, I would get to wear a shower cap in public for a few days. That's a bonus. And screw pictures, we'll go full video!

I still think the best "Jolene" cover is by the White Stripes. Google it (er, maybe Youtube it instead), bitch!

AAW said...

Damn, Jez, I almost posted that version as a counter point.
