Ivan Neville Discusses Chris Robinson Supergroup At Fool’s Paradise On Jam ON

first_imgWith the first ever Fool’s Paradise set to get underway in a little less than a month, master entertainer and funk maestro Ivan Neville stopped by the SiriusXM offices in New York City to chat with Jam On’s Ari Fink last weekend. Talking about what to expect from his collaboration with Chris Robinson’s Soul Revue, which includes Neville, Robinson, Eric Krasno, Neal Casal, Nikki Glaspie, George Porter Jr. and The Shady Horns, Neville indicates that the group has quite the set list in the works. He says the band has some vintage R&B stuff ready, having already seen a list of songs that the group wants to tackle. Neville makes mention of Robinson’s southern roots and they’re shared tastes, also noting Robinson’s hit record with the Black Crowes, “Hard To Handle,” which is of course an classic Otis Redding number.Quite simply, as Neville expresses, “The group of musicians that are gonna be hangin’ out playing is sick.” Listen to Ivan Neville’s brief chat with Ari Fink of Jam On below. Tickets for the inaugural Fool’s Paradise are on sale now and can be found here.last_img read more

The Claypool Lennon Delirium Releases New Track, Confirms Tour And Album

first_imgYesterday’s leaked press release announcing a lengthy U.S. tour with stops in over thirty cities was indeed accurate. To match the exciting news, The Claypool Lennon Delirium have also shared a new track as their follow up to the previously released “Cricket And The Genie,” which we highly recommend you listen to.The seemingly unlikely duo of Primus bassist Les Claypool and Beatle offspring/Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger leader Sean Lennon has come together in a psychedelic collaboration one could have never dreamed of, but wish they had. One might even describe the combination of masterminds as pure magic. The space-shifting new single, “Mr. Wright,” indeed confirms an upcoming album Monolith of Phobos, due out June 3 of this summer. From the highly anticipated release, follows their extensive tour, which will feature Beastie Boys’ Mark Ramos Nishita and Paul Baldi of the Fungi Band, as officially announced by Pitchfork.Claypool explained earlier this year that he met Lennon on a joint tour and they became friends backstage. “I asked Sean if he’d like to come to Rancho Relaxo and see if we couldn’t get some interesting sounds on tape. Next thing I know he’s staying in my guesthouse over the holidays and we’re drinking vino, hunting mushrooms and throwing musical pasta at the walls.”Lennon adds, “The Claypool Lennon Delirium will (gently) melt your face with heart-pounding low-frequency oscillations and interdimensional guitar squeals. We look forward to seeing you very soon.” The feeling is mutual.In a new statement from Les Claypool, he describes the project quite colorfully. “Sean is a musical mutant after my own heart. He definitely reflects his genetics – not just the sensibilities of his dad but also the abstract perspective and unique approach of his mother. It makes for a glorious freak stew.”In addition to the previously announced Bonnaroo, Peach Music Festival, and Vertex Festival showcases, we can now start to plan our 2016 introduction to The Claypool Lennon Delirium’s world debut with these expansive new dates.The Claypool Lennon Delirium Tour DatesJune 4 Beacham Orlando, FLJune 5 The Ritz Tampa, FLJune 7 Georgia Theatre Athens, GAJune 9 Greenfield Lake Amphitheatre Wilmington, NCJune 10 Orange Peel Asheville, NCJune 11 Bonnaroo Manchester, TNJune 12 The Pageant St. Louis, MOJune 14 Crossroads Kansas City, MOJune 15 Skyway Minneapolis, MNJune 17 Nelson Ledges Quarry Park Garrettsville, OHJune 18 Capitol Theatre Port Chester, NYJuly 21 Showbox SODO Seattle, WAJuly 22 Brit Pavilion Jacksonville, ORJuly 23 Roseland Portland, ORJuly 25 Pink Garter Theatre Jackson Hole, WYJuly 26 Wilma Missoula, MTJuly 27 The Depot Salt Lake City, UTJuly 29 Fonda Los Angeles, CAJuly 30 Marquee Tempe, AZJuly 31 Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas, NVAug 2 Observatory Santa Ana, CAAug 3 Observatory North Park San Diego, CAAug 4 Fremont San Luis Obispo, CAAug 5-7 Vertex Buena Vista, COAug 9 Englert Theatre Iowa City, IAAug 11 Majestic Theatre Detroit, MIAug 12 Express Live!

Phish Busts Out Long-Lost Beatles, Velvet Underground Tunes In Tour Opener

first_imgAnd the collective Phish fan base let out a sigh of relief. After five long months, summer tour is finally upon us.Phish played their opening night at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, MN, for what can really only be described as a “bust out show.” In all, the band played six songs that hadn’t been seen in over 100 shows, including a pair of covers that had been only played once, during 90’s Halloween shows. While Phish did not perform any songs from the new album, there’s still quite a long summer ahead.The show started with a Trey Anastasio original, “Pigtail,” a song generally reserved for Anastasio’s solo band. The song was played by Phish once before, in 2010 (195 shows), but its second-ever version was a bouncy and fun way to kick off the performance. It’s unclear whether the tune will make it onto the new Phish album, though it seems unlikely as the song was recorded on Anastasio’s 2012 album, Traveler. From there, the band kicked into a “Wolfman’s Brother” that got the whole building rocking.The bust outs were far from over, as the band broke out into their first “Daniel Saw The Stone” in 140 shows. The traditional bluegrass number was a staple of sets in 1993, and has been busted out intermittently ever since. Next up was the instrumental “The Dogs,” bringing some dark firepower to the Minnesota venue.The band kept things grooving with “Undermind,” as Page McConnell rocked the clavs like nobody’s business. From there, the band played their biggest bust out of the set, a version of The Beatles’ “Dear Prudence.” The song had not been performed since Halloween of 1994, a full 796 show gap. McConnell took lead vocals, as the song was played faithfully to the original. What a moment! From there, Phish dove into a spaced out “Stash,” getting weird before the set’s next bust out, “Round Room.” The 2003 album’s title track provided a nice upbeat and lighthearted moment despite being played for the first time in 192 shows. The band them jammed their way into the rocker “Horn.” The high energy song brought the house down, before the band dove into “Uncle Pen.” Mike Gordon got his first shot at lead vocals on the Bill Monroe classic, keeping fans grooving with the upbeat number. Fuego song “Halfway to the Moon” kept things rolling, while “Walls Of The Cave” closed out the set in style.After a quick break, Phish returned and wasted no time getting the crowd riled up, opening with a raging “Mike’s Song.” They followed “Mike’s” with the classic suite, segueing into the beautiful “I Am Hydrogen” before dropping some funk into “Weekapaug Groove.” Gordon’s bass slapping was at the forefront of the jam as they shared in the Weekapaug. From there, the band broke out into a beautiful “Bouncing Around The Room” before funking out into “Ghost.” The “Ghost” stayed mellow throughout, culminating in a funk finale before grooving into “The Line.” After “The Line,” Phish got down to business with a jammed out version of “Simple.” The soaring improvisational section opened up, and led the band into another bust-out from an old Halloween performance; Velvet Underground’s “I Found A Reason.” The song had only been played once before, on Halloween of 1998, for a total of 493 shows. Welcome back.The set raged on with a great “No Men In No Man’s Land,” with the band catching fire for this late set jam session. The song had been given the proper jam treatment on New Year’s Eve, and Phish mapped the rocking song with a passion. With “Billy Breathes” coming next, the set had an emotional cool down moment before “Bathtub Gin” brought things back up again! The band took “Gin” into high gear, rocking hard to close out a great set of music.Before finishing the final song, Anastasio took a moment to note his instrument of choice, saying that this was the same Languedoc guitar that he’d used the last time Phish was in Minnesota. From there, the band encored with the slow version of “Water In The Sky,” grooving out before tightening up for a rock and roll finale, “Character Zero.” “Zero” put a cap on a great night of Phish!Setlist: Phish at Xcel Energy Center, St. Paul, MN – 6/22/16Set 1: Pigtail, Wolfman’s Brother, Daniel Saw the Stone, The Dogs, Undermind, Dear Prudence, Stash, Round Room, Horn, Uncle Pen, Halfway To The Moon, Walls Of The CaveSet 2: Mike’s Song > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove, Bouncing Around The Room, Ghost > The Line, Simple > I Found A Reason, No Men In No Man’s Land, Billy Breathes, Bathtub GinEncore: Water In The Sky, Character ZeroNotes: This show featured multiple bustouts: Pigtail (last played December 28, 2010, or 195 shows), Daniel Saw the Stone (last played June 30, 2012, or 140 shows), Dear Prudence (last played October 31, 1994, or 796 shows), Round Room (last played January 1, 2011, or 192 shows), Uncle Pen (last played August 31, 2012, or 123 shows), and I Found A Reason (last played October 31, 1998, or 493 shows).

The Grateful Dead’s Debut Album Was Released On This Day In 1967

first_imgWhenever it is that you hopped on the bus–50 years ago or 50 days ago–few can deny that the Grateful Dead is a life-changing band. Today marks the 53rd anniversary of the band’s debut eponymous album, the physical culmination of a very powerful movement that emerged from the San Francisco area. The second half of the 1960s was the height of the so-called “counterculture,” which can be drastically over-simplified as a movement fueled by an anti-Vietnam War sentiment and an affinity for the newly synthesized psychedelic, LSD.Related: Grateful Dead Performed “Dark Star” & “St. Stephen” Featured On ‘Live/Dead’ On This Day In 1969San Francisco was at the heart of it all, as leaders like Ken Kesey (author of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest) were organizing events called “Acid Tests” to encourage mental exploration among the counterculture participants. These events are notably similar to the modern-day rave, only the music wasn’t electronic; it was the Grateful Dead. Band and participant alike would take acid, embarking on a musical journey through the realms of psychedelia. LSD was still legal at the time, and what a time it must have been!Interestingly enough, the Dead were the result of a wide array of musical styles. Jerry Garcia was raised on bluegrass and country, Bob Weir was into the folk/Americana traditions, Phil Lesh was studied in classical composition, and Ron “Pigpen” McKernan was fueled by blues and booze. Lest we not forget Bill [Kreutzmann] the Drummer, who seemed fairly content to go along for the ride with his musician friends.With many directions to explore, the band’s earliest live shows were an amalgam of these styles. Though they wrote a handful of songs, the majority of tunes selected were covers, and most of these covers made it onto the debut album. 53 years later, a number of these songs still remain in rotation at various Grateful performances, be it Phil & Friends, Dead & Company, Bob Weir’s Campfire Band, Bob Weir and Wolf Bros, and beyond.As the Dead continued to gain popularity from the Acid Tests, they were picked up by Warner Bros. Records and contracted to record their first album. The result was The Grateful Dead, a nine-track offering that attempted to capture the band’s dynamic live performances. The young and inexperienced band encountered hiccups on the way, with the record label forcing them to cut down the length of various tracks. Ultimately, the resulting product did a cursory job of capturing the band’s potent energy, but it still made quite the splash in San Francisco. With “Captain Trips” smiling brightly on the cover, the Grateful Dead began to pave their own “Golden Road” with this first album release.The album was cut in only four days, and the band would ultimately find it to be lacking. Lesh later wrote in his autobiography, “to my ear, the only track that sounds at all like we did at the time is ‘Viola Lee Blues.’” Indeed, where “Viola Lee” stretches past the ten-minute mark, the majority of the other songs are notably shorter than three minutes, designed for radio airplay and not psychedelic exploration. Still, however, the foundation of the Grateful Dead was implanted on their debut album, with original compositions (“Cream Puff War” and “The Golden Road”) and cherished covers (“Cold Rain and Snow,” “Morning Dew,” and more) alike.In all, The Grateful Dead marks the beginning of an illustrious career. The album only helped to grow the band’s following, which would continually grow through their 30 years together. In that time, the Grateful Dead redefined what a touring band could be, and they came by it earnestly. 53 years later, the band’s debut album captures the band in their youngest and hungriest days, eager to carve out a name for themselves. The rest, as they say, is history.Enjoy the band’s debut album on its 53rd anniversary, streaming below.The Grateful Dead – The Grateful Dead[Originally published 3/17/18]last_img read more
