Ever since I Got Burned became a fave of ours back in 2012 we’ve been keen to hear more from the musical combo of Tim Rogers & The Bamboos and luckily for us
the rolling stones
We missed that the legendary Bobby Keys had passed away in early December, and we shouldn’t have.
The legendary saxman, and Keith Richards’ sidekick, was famous for being the only guy who could party as hard as Sir Keith (oddly they were born on the same day).
Cool Accidents faves Portugal. The Man are currently in the midst of an Australian tour which has been kindly brought to us by the good people at Corona as part of their From Where You’d Rather Be series.
Basically John, Zach, Kyle & Jason have been living the dream in this fine country of ours, playing gigs in all the best spots, drinking copious amounts of booze and just generally getting turnt up down under… so the whole From Where You’d Rather Be thing is pretty much BANG ON.
We a-pol-o-gise a trillion times.
Well sort of… BBC can only keep their episodes up for a certain amount of time online so if you snooze you lose. This episode was too good not to share though as Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon from The Clash treated 6Music listeners to two hours of their favourite tunes which we’ve compiled into a handy YouTube playlist below… unfortunately it is without the commentary and Rock N’ Roll tales from the guys.
For a while The Rolling Stones held the record for an outdoor gig. Their free show on Copacabana beach played out to 1.5 million people and you can see the crowd below (along with the bridge they built to get them to the stage direct from the hotel – well it was the Bridges to Babylon tour so fair play)
And here’s a touch of “Satisfaction” from the same show.
Wilco played an epic set of 27 covers at the groups music and arts festival Solid Sound over the weekend.They added their alt-rock/country/folk flavour to tunes by Daft Punk, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Cheap Trick and a shitload more.
You can download/stream the set in its almost 2 and a half hour entirety over at NYC Taper.
Tom Waits joined The Rolling Stones on stage at their show in Oakland, California over the weekend… talk about places you’d rather be!
The first great album of 2013 seems to be here, even if it was in fact released in 2012. I guess even though it was great it required the patronage of uber-cool UK indie Domino records to lift it out of the Pitchfork clutter.
