  1. R U THE GIRL WHO FAINTED AT THE BRIGHTON SHOW?

    I'm the guy who caught you and took you backstage. Well kinda dragged you really! Just wondering if you're ok. You seemed alright when I checked, but I had to run cos she started playing Carbon Monoxide, and then you where gone at the end. Hope you enjoyed the bit of the gig you saw...

  5. WHOA! SAMSON??

I'd like to point out that when I said 'follower' i meant chronologically. I think it was Bruce Springsteen who inducted Dylan into the rock and roll hall of fame. And you'll have to excuse my translation, I was drunk when I scribbled this down, (hence why I'm not sure it was him). Anyway his words were something like: 'Bob freed the mind the way Elvis freed the body. He showed us that although the music was inately physical did not mean that it was anti-intellectual. He had the vision and the talent to make a pop song that contained the whole world. He inventeda new way a pop singer could sound, broke through the limitations of what a pop singer could achieve, and changed the face of rock and roll forever.'

    quote: Originally posted by Jamesb222: Ahhh okay! Thats whom the person was. Were you the person sitting with two guys? [which i am pressuming you are a girl] As i seemed to notice them sitting down with a crowd all around them which i found quite funny Naah that weren't me but i think we were sitting right behind those guys you're talking about. I'll pass it your way next time if you want. Oh and Missv cheers for that link. I think I preferred the bald smiling man with the sign. And on the rumour she mentioned about her appearing an 'asshole on stage': I can't think what started all that... Ps I'm a bloke!

  12. The Janice Long Show

    quote: Originally posted by LittleVoice: Regina wondered how she got through that Brighton Concorde 2 gig without blacking out Yeah man tell me about it. Just breathing was like eating sweat soup. Cool to see Regina playing 'sport' with the slippery keys...
  13. Regina At Sheperd's Bush Empire Last Night

    Hey thanks everyone for all the photo's. Shepherds bush was my favourite gig out of the four I saw recently. Not just because she finally played Carbon Monoxide, but the performance and the venue and the crowd and everything... Has anyone come across Regina requesting no smoking and SILENCE throughout the performance before. It seemed strange because we were far from silent but Regina seemed to dig that. Ps sorry everyone that was me sitting on the floor and smoking joints.

    quote: Originally posted by LittleVoice: I am not sure about the chronology of Dylan's use of stories from the Bible My example was from August 1965, and right now I can't be bothered to search through his five album releases which preceded Highway61 for any others. Your example, however interesting and relevent to Reginas work, was from two years after the release of Dylans first Greatest Hits record. I would say that Leonard is a great example of the kind of artists who followed Dylans lead in bringing a wealth of poetic lyrics to pop music. And thank God they did. Just look at the difference between the Beatles work pre-Rubber Soul, and then the change once they had become Dylanised...
  15. WHOA! SAMSON??

    quote: Originally posted by jweprich: still, this post isnt about the new and old samson. its about the new one(take one) and the other new one (take two) Yo sorry Jweprich. I guess I should've quoted submergedcalamity and/or a_secret_chord 'cos I was responding to them. And also continuing the Brumstix tradition of threadjacking innit. Hey JohnnyC I was hoping someone would getme. Did you realise my choosing of the Bob song as a comparison was very careful. Ok so I called 'Highway 61 revisited' by the wrong name. I know! Hey it was getting late. But still my observation was spot on I think: Bob Dylan comes along when, lyrically, pop songs were really un-inventive. As far as I can see, before Dylan, no-one had thought of taking stories from the old Testament, adding their own spin on them, and putting them into a lyric. Fast forward a few decades and we have samson (which incidentally is far more beautiful than Dylans song) and for that we should all be really grateful to the little man. Regina kicks ass but she's standing on the shoulders of giants. And whilst we're on the subject (sorry again Jweprich!) I'm slowly coming to the conclusion that Regina is the greatest lyricist since Bob. A bold statement I know but everyone else just sounds so boring... 'God said to Abraham "Kill me a son" Abe said "Man you must be putting me on?" God said "No!" Abe said "What?" God said "You can do what, Abe, but the next time you see me comin' you'd better run" Abe said "Where you want this killin done?" God said "Out on Highway 61" I just love the way Abraham calls God 'Man' Peace out.
