Wonderful Tonight- Eric Clapton
The unstoppable Mr. Rafferty’s “Right On Down The Line” is on the set list twice. The second time, Gerry’s name is misspelled with a “J”. Is this a remix version, or did you smoke some dirt weed behind the JC Penney dumpster prior to this interview?
I did a little wake n’ bakin’ this morning but, I assure you that Carlos does not sell dirt weed, buddy. And listen Andy, what you’re referring to is a simple typing error. I’m surprised that a music journalist who doesn’t know the difference between “Wonderful Tonight” and “Beautiful Tonight” would have the balls to point out such triviality.
I’m sorry, I should’ve paid closer attention. It’s just that the set list isn’t very easy on the peepers, if you know what I mean. It looks like something found in a divorced crossing guard’s 100 disc CD changer. Where did Bryce run off to anyway?
Kenny, it’s time for me to get a handle on what really makes you tick. I am going to mention a succession of bands, and I would like for you to give me your individual thoughts on each one. Here we go…
PMS. (laughs) No, seriously I like a lot of their shit especially some of the recent christian material.
DEFGHIJKLMNOPQ!!!!!!! No just kidding Andy, (laughs) They were good. Tawny and I used to fuck to that tune “Be Near Me”.
I like Twin Peaks. I really like Twin Peaks if you know what I mean. (nudge nudge) I’m talking about tits here, Andy
Ok, I feel the end nearing. The Hues Corporation
How bout’ the Blues Corporation? Otherwise know as the Low Down Dirty Dawgs. We do a blues up cover version of “Rock the Boat, but we wrote our own lyrics about how much Disco sucks.
The Close Lobsters
I’m drawin’ a blank here Andy, I’m afraid I’ve never heard of these guys. I’m not sure if this applies but I do like bearded clams.
I’ll give you the short version: Too weird.
I don’t know who in the hell they are but I like the name. I love band names that involve a clever play on words, it’s usually an indication of intelligence and a true artistic gift. Like The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Shirley Temple of Doom, The Dandy Warhols, Sleazus Christ…
Ok, how about Aztec Camera?
They’re no Prefab Sprout, try as they might.
A sadly missed and very underrated band. Cats on the Coast is the Thriller of Southern Fusion.
I don’t see eye to eye with all of his politics and some of his music I just simply don’t like. But, I sent one of my kids to his Lil’ Wackers bow-hunting camp up in Michigan. I went up there for parents day and he makes a damn good bowl of chili.
What is this some kind of Kihnspiracy, Andy?
The Mighty Lemon Drops
Fucked if I know, was John Lemon in that band? Along with his drummer Mango Starr.
Okay, very funny Bad Dawg.
How bout’ Orange Harrison?
Pear McCartney anyone?
How bout they’re manager Banana Epstein?
(more laughs) Stop you’re killing me.
Wait a second wasn’t there another guy in that band? Oh yes, Strawberry Sutcliff.
Alright already! Chilliwack
I’m not familiar with that much Canadian music but Chilliwack is a band and band name that I really like. I used to play with some guys at a downtown chilli bar and we called ourselves the Chili Dawgs. (laughs) Ian Marshall (A Canadian film school graduate) left a few tapes in my truck after he was done shooting the movie, and I like all of them. There’s a lot of good shit coming out of Canada these days Moxy Fruvous, Doug and the Slugs, Barenaked Ladies.
Who? I’m tempted to say Thomas Fucknasty but that’s a little too crude.
Oh yeah, that wouldn’t fit into the interview at all. How about The Firm?
I’ve always been intigued by the assertive band logo never checked em out though. They good?
They were an early 80’s “supergroup” that included former Bad Company vocalist Paul Rogers and the then unemployed Jimmy Page. They had one hit called “Radioactive”, and they also unsuccessfully covered “You Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’” by the Rightous Brothers. Hall and Oates beat them to the punch with this move in 1980. Check please!!!
