  • I'd rather be procrastinating

I was thinking...
If Jeff Mangum were to play an unreleased (on bootlegs or otherwise) NMH song at a show such as at the recent E6 holiday surprise shows
it would make for one of the greatest moments in live music history

I remember reading (in an old interview) that Jeff Mangum has a bunch of tapes lying around at his home that nobody has really ever heard.
And I would imagine that Mangum probably has written a ton of songs that nobody has ever heard before.

The only thing that would be more insane would be if Thom Yorke, Michael Stipe, and Morrisey all showed up to sing back-up vocals.
Followed by Steve Martin coming out to announce that he is returning to stand-up.


Any other ideas for greatest moments in live music history that have yet to happen?

Another good one, I think, would be Dinosaur Jr. playing "We're Not Alone" live, and the everyone's heads exploding from the sheer amount of awesome.

A few months ago I would have said David Gilmour and Roger Waters decided they could in fact stand each other, and that they loved the music they made together, announcing a new tour with the whole of Pink Floyd. But now Rick Wright is dead. Fuck my life.

Pete Townshend was one of the less talented members of the Who?

Moon's drumming and Entwistle's bass wouldn't be worth a fuck without the songs they were playing on.

I hope not much bigger. The last thing we need is for Jeff Mangum to start selling out Madison Square Garden.
I still hate myself for not going to the Elephant6 Holiday Show in NYC. I could have easily gone and I would have seen Jeff Mangum perform (not NMH stuff to be fair but still!).

Actually, wait, yeah... Maybe it's only because I listened to the band's last two albums, but Emergency and I was a fuckin barnstormer of an album. Throw that one in there too!

Things I would love to see happen...

-Jeff Mueller and Jason Noble get Rodan back together and play shows... then June of 44 does the same thing.
-Evens or Joe Lally show turns into full-fledged Fugazi reunion
-David Byrne joins Clap Your Hands Say Yeah onstage... only for him to tell the singer "You're doing it wrong"

Because I really don't want millions of frat boys blasting NMH, I really don't want millions of "what a sellout" and "I liked him before he was big so fuck you" debates cropping up everywhere I fucking look and I really don't want to have music perfectly suited to intimate settings ruined by commercialization by making it impossible to access out of the stadium. Sigur Ros is going in that direction, for example, and the fact that I have to pay $65 to sit in a huge theater in front of a group of drunken bros that talk the whole time and strain my eyes to see the fucking band which plays the same set every night of their tour b/c it's just become easier and they have to appeal to a fanbase that only knows a handful of songs is frustrating beyond belief. Call me elitist, I don't care, but I hate nearly all concerts in that kind of setting and I think it ruins, or comes mighty close to ruining anyway, a live experience when bands that are not really designed for that kind of scene to be thrust upon it. That's why.

By larger than 50 people, I mean festivals and venues like The Famous Spiegeltent (300-350 at the most).

(Madison Square Garden + NMH) = (chalk + cheese)

fair question. i think these would be the best/most energetic albums performed live. also i would like to see people "dance" to "the standing still."

don't get me wrong, i wouldn't object if some of the wilder songs on emergency & i got played. (8 1/2 minutes, anyone?) the only thing off change i'd want to hear is "the other side." the rest of change, methinks, can stay in the studio.

I've recently run into this problem myself...and I've decided I don't care: I'm an elitist and I don't want the dumbasses who very clearly don't get it there ruining my fun.  Yeah, it's great that I get to see [insert band name here] again because they now have enough money to tour regularly, but could they somehow get the money without the jackholes coming along?  That would rock.

Quote
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (AP) - Killers frontman Brandon Flowers was hospitalized after being attacked onstage by Bruce Springsteen earlier today. When the younger singer attempted to join the rock icon for a spontaneous duet, Springsteen reportedly knocked him out with a single punch to the jaw. "Get [Flowers] out of here," he told security at the event. "I don't want him [on] the stage." Onlookers cheered as the E Street Band launched into a spirited rendition of "Jungleland" while Flowers' prone form was loaded onto a stretcher and carried out of the venue.

The Philadelphia police are declining to press charges.

... had big hands.

Bigger than Liszt's?

Also, I remember watching a doco a while ago about Chopin. At one point they showed his piano, which still exists, and an interesting feature of it was that the keys were narrower than the keys on a modern piano. Which might explain all those crazy-huge intervals you find in Romantic piano music. Or not, I dunno.

The change in key width isn't enough to make an appreciable difference, I think.
