Karl Holmqvist, I’m With You In Rockland, 2012
Great live version of the same song on the German show Rockpalast, 1979.
Wire, “I Feel Mysterious Today,” 1978. Heard this the other day for the first time in a long time, made me smile.
"Greatest dance number ever filmed." — Fred Astaire.
Cab Calloway w/ Nicholas Bros, from Stormy Weather (1943).
Forty years ago tonight The Ramones played their first gig at CBGB. Also on the bill: Debbie Harry and Chris Stein’s new group, Angel and the Snake, soon to be renamed Blondie. In the audience: Alan Vega, of Suicide, and David Byrne, who would soon form Talking Heads. The clip above is from September 15, 1974, a few weeks later. Clearly, “Judy Is a Punk” had already become a local favorite.
Ramones, “Cretin Hop,” CBGB. 1 2 3 4 cretins wanna hop some more. 4 5 6 7 all good cretins go to Heaven.
Nightshot(s): July 9th. One Chase Manhattan Plaza @ 9pm.
