Last week ruled. I saw Pete Townshend play at my friend Marko's Hotel Cafe (some Billy dude from some Pumpkins band played too, someone said he was big in the 90s), saw The Who play The Hollwood Bowl from the very last row in the place but the tickets were free (thank you to the people who gave them to us, you're rad) with Oasis' drummer (and Ringo Starr's kid) Zach Starkey on drums (KILLING IT), got see the Los Angeles premiere of the new Oasis movie "Lord Don't Slow Me Down" and afterwards we saw Noel Gallagher and Gem Archer play every Oasis song you wished they'd play but never do (check the photo on the left BIOTCH)... "Talk Tonight", "The Masterplan" , "Whatever"... it was awesome. If someone can find a bootleg of that show, let me know (it was on November 9th, 2006) cuz you'll hear Aaron and myself "positively heckling" them. Check out this quote from this Post Chronicle article.
Noel was also in fine humorous form when he told a fan to "f**k off" after he requested to hear a drum solo.
He quipped: "You're obviously on some very serious drugs. Someone should take them off you and put then in my dressing room."
As the night was coming to an end, Noel announced he was "going to get absolutely hammered after this" and signed off saying, "Thank you for coming but you should be thanking me , because I'm not getting paid and it cost me money to get here!
Oh and afterward we went to a bar called the "Liquid Kitty" (get it, WET PUSSY) and pounded beers and whiskey shots while Aaron told Noel we were the ones yelling "SHIT YEAH", "FUCK EM UP NOEL", "DRUM SOLO" & HELL MOTHERFUCKIN YEAH" in between every song and takled to him about drugs, chicks, guitar pedals and Rammstein. Shit went off!
Seeing as how this post is just me bragging for the most part... Might as well brag about a band that just put out a really good record on my label... The Cassettes - "Neath The Pale Moon" hits stores on November 28th! Make sure you check the songs they have for your "streaming pleasure" on their fancy pants myspace website. Aside from all that, the band has posted a bunch of live videos on youtube from their show @ The Knitting Factory in New York City. They've also posted the second episode of their ongoing pod-cast, this one features them in Italy playing live... nothing like foreign interviews! Check out the action by click here for the pod-cast. Also check out their fancy new website @ http://www.thecassettes.com/cms/. I must warn you, it looks like a newspaper. And if you haven't read The Cassettes' wikipedia page, it's a must read... yes, it's all true.
Oh... and by the way, I'm not posting mp3s on here anymore cuz people were complaining that our host was SLOW AS BALLS and I don't have time to waste your time.
