Live Clips: Walkmen, Blitzen Trapper/I&Wine

 

All the concert news
‘n’ reviews that’s fit to print.

 

 

By Blurt Staff

 

 

More concert coverage from your friendly neighborhood BLURT
– this time, we’ve the Walkmen & the Decemberists in Ithaca and Blitzen Trapper & Iron and Wine in Baltimore (both reviews featuring exclusive
photos).

 

 

 

 

  • *April S. Engram caught the Walkmen opening for
    the Decemberists at Cornell U in Ithaca,
    NY, on Nov. 9 and succinctly
    observed, “The Walkmen were simply flawless.” (She was pretty impressed by the
    Decemberists too, even though she’d gone to the show to see the openers, noting
    that Colin Meloy & Co. “was able to keep a room fully energized from start
    to finish.”)
  • *Then Zach Herrmann was in the house for the
    Blitzen Trapper/Iron and Wine concert at Baltimore’s
    Rams Head Live! venue on Nov. 18. The openers, noted Herrmann, came out strong
    but ultimately got bogged down with pointless jamming. “Still,” wrote Herrmann,
    “when Blitzen Trapper stuck to what it does best – down-home, electric pop,
    served briskly – the results were enjoyable.” Of Iron and Wine, he pointed out
    that Sam Beam is an admirable risk-taker in concert, audience be damned: “Beam
    largely left behind his sparse and beautiful (but occasionally tepid) balladry
    for something a little more interesting.”

 

Check ‘em out at the provided links, or simply scroll down
the BLURT front page to the reviews section. We’ve also got new book, DVD and
CD reviews being added daily.

NME With Dumb/Fun Britney Spears Contest

 

 

This news item might
be a shameless ploy to generate web traffic via meta-tag “Britney Spears”…

 

By Fred Mills

 

 

Hello punters. Still stuffed like a turkey? Planning on
getting some outdoor exercise (like the, uh, Black Friday Crawl…) today and
work it off? We’re planning on gobbling some ‘roids then heading to the gym to
stare at all the other bloated bodies. But first, this most excellent index
finger exercise.

 

Click over to NME.com and check out their Britney Spears
contest. It’s a lead-up to next week’s release of (yawn) Circus, already being reported on by such fine outlets as USA Today as some kinda career-rehab
move. But how can you kill her when she’s already dead?

 

At any rate, the name of the game is to come up with
Britney-related band names. Everybody likes a good list, the sillier the
better, right? Here’s what the NME editors and some of the readers have posted
today, and you can enter your own selections.

Minogue…

 

By Fred Mills

 

 

Pop hottie Kylie Minogue serves up
her second collection of club remixes on Jan. 5 featuring treatments from Mark
Brown, Knuckleheadz, Fischerspooner, Chemical Brothers and others. Titled Boombox, the 16-song collection mostly
covers latterday material, including her mega-hit Blue Monday-Kylie mashup
“Can’t Get Blue Monday Out of My Head” 
from 2002 and the more recently, frankly awesome “Wow” (from this year’s
X).

 

Minogue previously issued the
four-volume series Greatest Remix Hits on Australia’s
Mushroom label in 1997-98.

Courtney Love: “I am not suicidal”

Speaking of her
personal life of course… she disemboweled her career a long time ago.

 

By Fred Mills

 

 

 

“i am not suicidal,
occasionally very occasionally like all of us i get depressed, and that was
over a year ago and i had a mini little depression attack well big one, and the
Lanvin show made me happier, i don’t know quite why it happened but i find that
medication is not the answer to this, working out and doing daimoku ( chanting)
is as is yoga and eating correctly and i want some more high country Kombucha
tea i think that stuff is miraculous for glow and health. those things work far
better than this chemical culture of numbing our rage and numbing our pains and
demons…”

 

 

That’s just one tiny excerpt from a barrage of blogging that
Nirvana widow Courtney Love has been posting the past week or so at her MySpace
page
. The “suicidal” comments have been picked up, naturally, by assorted media
outlets – it’s like leaving a sack of opened peanuts on a park bench, you KNOW
the squirrels will be all over that shit in a few minutes. So all of La Love’s
comments about wanting the media to back down notwithstanding (read the entire
blog), it’s all pretty transparent, coming from someone that clearly craves the
spotlight so badly and knows that the only way to do it at this point, with no
credible career in acting or music in the foreseeable future, is to continue to
play the role of professional whacko.

 

Love also added this tidbit: “basically im off blogging,” as if she wants the world to believe
that she’s finally been so exhausted by living a public persona she intends to
reel it all back in.

 

Not so fast: three days later (the above post was Nov.17)
she was at it again, and then again on Nov. 22, 24, 25 and 26, with a series of
video clips posted plus comments.

 

And then early this morning apparently either the Ritalin
wore off or kicked in, depending on you look at it, and she posted a marathon
5000-word Thanksgiving entry (we like the part about “vomit
vomit vomit ugh ugh ugh… i let that cretin touch my TITS? my majestic fabulous
TITS?”
even though it makes no sense at all) that we think is partly a list
of things she gives thanks for, but we’re not sure. We’ll copy it in full,
below, just because it’s impressive in its rambling scope and incoherent logic
even by Love standards.

 

Writes Love, in a moment of stark self-awareness, “my bandmates and producer and prodcution
manager my publicist who hates when i blog i dont blame him, i hate when i blog
, but i do it sometimes when i feel especially furious or ecsatic or both, i
just do,”
Well, it’s better than doing drugs or driving the wrong direction
on the freeway when you’re agitated, so this is good. And it keeps the rest of
us safe at home, glued to our computers too!

 

 

Enjoy! This has been a public service announcement… with
psychiatrists!

and

to paul westerberg for writing “Unsatisfied”
thankyou a million times,

1:48 AM

 

that performace/creepy men and theres plenty

well Northern Star was totally new to them but Micko has
golden fingers, and liams at my house ( actually theyre all at the old house
having turkey , idid my soup kitchen thing this morning my kids with her
grandma and im alone in malibu, they keep offering us to go back to the
ballroom house the one on vh1 that noone appeared to watch ididnt, itwas
harsh enough letting anyone into my house, let alone having some
“decorator” take credit for furnishing my house, no offense to
jaime but she knows she didnt decorate myt hosue i dont believe in decorators
i am one) and the other two you WOULDNT RECOGNIZE now i dont think youll even
know Samantha, its more “Spanglemaker” meets “This
Corrosion” meets that trent fuck you like an animal song meets a tad of
“Enter Sandman” cos one must always have the ability to open for
Metallica and have at least a shot at kicking major ass, so i really dont
mind that these songs as they were are up , they are now MASSIVE sounding,
utterly MASSIVE, Beinhorn has a crazy work ethic, he fucking WORKS man, HARD,
and hes Beinhorn, so if something is the slightest bit off tune and only he
can hear it, hes like a canine that way, maybe a wolf, only Micheal can hear
that ever so slightly wrong tone, but i know im getting the very very best of
myself and of him and of my band,

 

heres the thing, i just knew it wasnt right, without in any way stepping on
my gratitude to LP it wasnt right, just wasnt right, and i was in the car
ahhhthe Aston db90 i shoulve fucking bought, i lovethat thing, i thi nkAston
Martins are the only car that do NOT lose value when you drive em off the
lot, theres some suck ass 80s ones , but the 07 was perrrfect forever and
dammit i shall learn to drive one day, i figured if i couldnt learn in an
aston martin id never learn, i dont care so much that its a fancy car, or
whatever, just that its a beautiful car with a sexxxy ride, anywya was
listening to “OUT OF THE BLACK: off Neil Young and Crazy Horse RUST
NEVER SLEEPS< and realised its all true, Crazy Horse and Neil are a BAND,
he can play with whoever he wants to , but his Crazy Horse stuff is the best
best best of it – i also as an addendum thinkits a fucking miracle that hes
been playing “Old Black:” his Les Paul since the beginning of time
and noones stolen it, ahhh some guys have all the luck ( why do i love this
Pulp Song “Underwear” more than “Common People” “If
Fashion is your trade , then when your naked, i guess you must be
unemployed…” and i was listinging to Out of The Black really LOUD and
i KNEW it was all wrong,literally i got on the phone and booked a flight to
the UK , sadly i got stuck with this bogus loser Louie who has a Bank One
Credit Card on “my” ssn and HEH works for Ryan ” i dont know
who the fuck i am and i never ever will , but i break the sacred code of
artists not ripping off artists cos i get a perverse and sick thrill from
thinking possibly that my whol;e lifestyle is funded by “Kurt Cobains
Money” ” Adams Cantthink of 2 people who deserve each other more, i
like mandy moore what the FUCK was she THINKING? talk about a Dirty Vulgar
Nasty man. hes so uncomfortable in his own skin and so bileous and hateful
and like all wannabe Dylan imitators (He once told me with great hubris a
story of how Dylan “calls” him the “Kid” ummmm……id
have to make a wager there that Robert ZImmerman thinks about Liz Taylor more
than Ryan Adams, thats a private joke but actually its true, wierd long
private story, forget it, no do not ask, I keep secrets thats how come i
always get invited to the best parties, wether i go or not is a whole other thing,
im having a transition lately too, im sort of fashion unfriendly, oh not that
i dont want to slam into Lanvin and grab that last Chloe collection by the
balls and not that i dont have my Rick Owens stuff coming from Paris as
usual, but im in love with etsy, just go there and type in “Marie
ANtionette” or “Velvet Cuffs” “Lingerie” and dont
forgetthe HAnd of Fatima girls if you cant find them put in on tags
“crests” “jewelry” and youll see them soon enough, and i
love love love Boudouir Queen, shes inspired me to , after i flew her up[for
a totally mad crazed day havoc central, i ended up giving her loads of
beuatiful shattered vintage and victoriana, and go to Gibbous Fashions.com i
just got my box and i feel like a hot edwardian showgirl hoyden, ive found a
source for theatrical olde i mean Victorian , Edwardian showgirl outfits, and
im having a ball, walking arounf my house with my needle and thread and a top
hat on with BQs fabullous dresses, and learning how to Ombre my shit, you
have to create a pully, seriously, out of a wire hanger( i really do hate
them, wire hangers, they make all the netted victorian get rippy) with
Gibbous you can send your Forever 21 nonsense and theyll send you back
something genius, im donating a bunch to them as i cant see battered women in
bikinis i got in bangcock that i thought id get around to doing something
with someday, my Bangcock Bikinis are hysterical,. you can put in “edgar
allen Poe” and end up with “Annabelle Lee” or “The
Raven” as a pair of earrings, its a perfect community i just got a
beuatiful i think shes called blackbooks and she makes books and paper but
the leather she searc hes out has to be amazing witha story, my new lyric
book has as a cover a 200 year old saddle, and the altered books are amazing,
i got one for twilight, for my kid, she hasnt any desire to act, its just
cute she got offered that film and cool how she doesnt care a whit shes not
in it, when was the last time you listened to Pearly Dew Drops Drop?
Spanglemaker? or for gods sake “UNsatisfied” by the
replacements…….and i cannot recall ever writing that chorus to ‘Best
Sunday Dress’ but it is genius, i dont know when or how that got finished, i
mustve been in a bad phase, anyway, speaking of choking on his own
luminol,….sorry im nasty, i just have tried sending Ryan the 858,000
dollars ins tudio bills he owes me, and Nobu meals while Kurts sister was
getting her house refinanced illlegally for the 12th time and on that
occasion in a fraudelent bank account a bogus “entity” ( corporation
or llc) id never heard of they deliberatl;y made it so , i guess cos i fired
the psychopathic cunt, and she wanted to get Frannies trust fund to Comerica
to this crooked officer there Sonja Cochran, she made sure with Sonja that it
was bogus address the bills were going to, 123 reves apt d bh 90210, no such
place, so the inevitable was that Kim Cobains home was going to be reposessed
in 9 months or so while Ryan was slamming down sake Slurpees and jack and
Coke Big Gulps, i suppose he thinks that brings him closer to Kurt, what a
sick fuck, thats no better than my bio father, who goes on and on about my
“Olympic health and Genius IQ ” while boasting of his
correspondence with Charles Manson, maybe Bio Dad Ryan Barber and Louie
should just form a little troupe “we are psychotic” i loved his
patronising dismissive comment about the 858,000 of mine he stole to make
“rock and roll” he didnt do it alone but he was the artist. ”
a person who may or may not be …” what was it? “sane” heh,
im saner than hell ever be and gee , unl;ike him i havent touched heroin in
over ten years, but anyway, now that ive had my requisite slam on him, and i
may punch his gut if i see him cos would RYAN be such a pussy as to fucking
sue me? i was listening to Lucindas Genius “Little Rock Star”
wondering if it was about Adams, i bet he thinks it is, and hes in that
Americana world she allegedly inhabits, although shes a far far far more
brilliant artist than someone who should be confined to that genre, shes a
rock queen, a country goddess, you know the only song i like on LE Disastre
is sort of about Ryan actually, its called “Almost Golden” i dont
quite Know what its about, some people however loathesome, however
lizardlike, can inspire me, like i could NEVER write a word about that Gollum
, Barber, i tried just to get out of my comfort zone, and heres what came out
everything about you is gross
and i cant think of another word
vomit vomit vomit.
ugh ugh ugh.

i mean i pushed really really hard! but nothing c ame out just a stillborn ectopic
fried piece of gristle,. i let that cretin touch my TITS? my majestic
fabulous TITS? ( oh speaking fabulous tits, Pamela dropped by 3 nights ago ,
i think Liam got scared and hid she was with a CUTE hockey player, i never go
for sportos but i genuinly l;ike Hockey and he was well read and sort of an
intellectual sporto and he was built to play sports , in an adonis sort of
way, i did answer the door in arm warmers and a top hat and a cape that was
alleged to be Queen Victorias so im sure he thought mykrazy Krafty rock n
roll little beach house was nutso, im not sure i can stomach going back to
the ballroom house id rather just keep in the trajectory, NY next stop Uk,
atthe same time due to impeccable credit due to stealing mine back from
barber, oh he doesnt know it ive got great connections to bear Sterns and
Wamu these days, if he can buy 1466 Broadway a 300,000,000 dollar Times
Square building under the phony names of”Melissa and Russell
Melnick” using Frances’s and Kurts ssn’s via a hasidic real estate
developer named David Sitt who changed the tax on his “6 Times square
LLC” 9 times of variants and change those FEINS ( tax identity numbers)
3x each., and buy it witha 2 million dollar wamu loan from First American
Title , my new bff is the NE rep for fraud for First American Title, hes so
cute and nice to me and explains how i legally can obtain this credit a few
weeks ago, and through the NY state attorneys office, aha, but the fun part
will be garnishing the properties, the Courtney Philliganes ( phony name)

Mortgage Fraud Universe justthe ones in my blogs and never ever about this
stuff not one of these peop;le exist you understand? itd be chinese to most
of you as to why they had to use the name Cobain, in a nutshell, because they
bought Tracts there in these subdivisions and as the years passedgot more and
more bold buying properties in SF Chi LA and NY and LOndon and Nice and
Majorca Spain, they had to show a Power of Attorney and a Trustee ship over
me, forged, and buy a property in my name, or Frannies name, alot of the time
they were just picking up huge wire transfers from comerica and city national
bank. from 62 accounts at the latter i didnt know about, and wanst allowed to
know abouit because CPA Nancy Gail Chapman in 1998 forged a Power Of Attorney
stating that ” i terminate all rights to terminate my relationship with
this bank its partners of anmy of its businesses” I terminate my right
to withdraw or deposit monies” “I terminate my right to have access
of any sort or obtain data regarding any entities monies or wires at this
bank its partners or other businesses electronically via comouter or letter
or email or in person” beaicsally she faked the most fucking SURREAL
document youll ever see, and since this is the

LARGEST HUGEST MOST GIGANTIC MORTGAGE FRAUD, IDENTITY FRAUD, BANK FRAUD,
CONSPIRACY AND EMBEZZLEMENT CASE COMMITED ON ONE FAMILY IN AMERICAn
HISTORY…..thats it, learn it, love it, know it, cos after it breaks we wont
be having these little fire side chats, basically im just fucking with the
bad guys so they go apeshit and scatter after ive ALREADY obtained the
evidence NOW to put Nancy Lester Azoff Barber Zumwalt Mccourt- Karaban
Mathieson Hancock Cote O Banion Rowe Klee Blake SElvaggi and Rodriguez and
Cochran the fuck away, and throw Ryan on top of that pile for token traitor,
i dont know if theres enouigh to throw his ass in prison but he did know he
was spending my money, and hes a shit liar, and he knew Barber and Zumwalt
were commiting Mortgage Fraud oh im not forgetting Dave Lory trust me, that
fuckl took me for a straight 6 million, but id rather see Rosemary Carroll
see her day of Justice first,. i havent got the transcripts yet of how she
threw Kurts already dead body under the bus buit shes got no fucking room to
lie anymore about his NOTARISED AND VALID WILL< wich she benefitted from
calling “IN Testate” when it was not……. for SHAME on that
family, SHAME SHAME SHAME< the rest are criminals and psychopaths, entitled
narcissisists and Poison Dwarves, but Rosemarys Family was trusted and
beloved by ours and had i known that for 16 years shes been living with this
fist fucking she gave a dead boy who trusted her, id have fucking punched her
lights out, well shell see me plenty, cos noones spared in this and i should
be afriad to move to the West Village because i might see one of these fucks?

i blog about it because i cant sing about it.
and i get furious, ill make assloads more than they ever stole and flipped
and flipped again, assloads, but it doesnt excuse them from sytealing
380,000,000 demonstarable dollars,

anyway the unfortante Louie Mathieus whose as useless as a fucking trainwreck
and loves the sound of his own fucking voice as wellas being a common low end
thief is now Ryans Road manager and thats harmonious all is right if those
two morons are together in some owned by us,, Syracuese shithole. oops i mean
pout on the road with Oasis, im sure going down a reaL STORM, with oasis’s
audience every time, im going with Russell, wether he l;ikes it or not, and
no ill not punch that fuck at the Staple Center cos i dont feel like going to
court, yet again, he fucked me like a baby,. he should take it like a man,

and in all of this garbage, all of this shitstorm ive been able to make some
sense out of it all, i mean i even have a song about Coogie, i have a few
bits of songs about Coogie and thats not exactly a high point, it was quite a
fucking hi dee ho au revoir to blow, a certain pornographer/.hagiographer of
young drunken chicks showing thier tits whose made assloads off tits for free
gave a certain rockstars daughter, who happens to be a good girlfriend of
mine, i swear to god more drugs than ive ever seen and she handed them to
ME< so that was a wickedly insane romp, why oh why was it Alan Partridge
who was the lucky fella? cos he was there, i liked him fine,. id not seen
Partridge and wouldbt have cared if i had, i like people who can go the edge
of the fire and make themselves that odious , itsthe factthattheres no hope
for his soul that worries me, i was very fond of him, and for a second there
when my band started playing “Rock Me Sexy Jesus” when i came into
rehersal i held my head in my hands ///”oh dear GOD dont letthat movie
become some sort of phenom or cult hit or anything just lethim do saxondale
and thats funny as fuck and go be funny as fuck on tv in the uk and stop
being jealous as hell of Russell or Noel and just go away from my circle.

hes certainly not someone id punch, we actaully had a good insane but good time
and teh consequcnes were HORRIFIC, but you do the crime you do the time, so
ill take that one on the chin and i really shouldnt have said anything about
Owen and Him it was just something someone at “Us: magazine told me
about the daughter being around these hookers and pee/poo swingers, it upset
me greatly, Noone needs a sex addict for a dad, its embarassing 1 and creepy
2 my father is a sex offender in California but i loathe the guy, and he
cannot get anywhere near us, creepty men should be the name of this blog,
wait it IS<

most of my men my friends my lovers are by no means creepy whatsoever, in
fact they are lovely and beautiful , tender,Alpha, full of light and love,
brilliant, sweet, samurai, brave, honourable,.

my bandmates and producer and prodcution manager my publicist who hates when
i blog i dont blame him, i hate when i blog , but i do it sometimes when i
feel especially furious or ecsatic or both, i just do, and as far as lovers,
you dont know about them, you wont, so dont ask, i didnt getthe memo on being
indiscreet and i may drop a few fucking names but not about that part of my
life, i do too many sit ups these days and sqauts to blow it by spilling the
beans about who licks my legs, but put this way, should i remarry, and ive
thought about it, itll be in a bamboo forest quietly and with noone but my
closeet dearest friends and nary a photgrapher in the place, i didnt getthe
memo about big white weddings though i am obsessed with the bridal culture
inthis country,

now i need some muses the girls who design only for themsl;eves are always
making mistalkes, i dont want to discuss too much of what im up to, but i
think Gerard Depardiues Daughter is amazingly stylish in her “FUCK YOU
ALL” attitude, christ what was her name, id love to dress her, Melissa
AUf Der MAr, i love the idea of dressingher though my present sillhouette she
may find not narrow enough for her mermaidness,

i love Karen Elson and Melissas Friend Sarah ( Sophie) Flicker and their
whole Weimar Republic Citizens Band thing, i love Zooey Deschanel, and i
wonder what kind of “{Penny Lane” she would have made, i love
Scarlett whose a thousand times weirder smarter and cooler than you can
imagine, I love how MJ has Sofia and hed better have M E in that Rolodex of muses
in his brain, i LOVE L:OVE LOVE Daphne Guiness but shes got a closet full of
couture already, and PAmela has been swept up by Viveinne Westwood to wich i
say Cheers to the Dame now Pamela is so not going to wear your Gold Line but
I WILL< so can you send it my way/wp-content/photosPLEASE/wp-content/photos and ill happily wear your
curtains and sing your manifestos with Gusto! every Westwood show i see
leaves me drooling, but i go the little Gold Label store and its never made,
its very depressing, I also fell in love with Amanda Harlech, how can she do
that? make me want to dress her when shes had Galliano and now Lagerfeld, i
need a muse noones heard of but is my girl, i think ill look up i think Julie
Depardiue, i like how she is in her skin and i love Lindzay Way, from
M.S>I. she looks like a Rosetti, and plays bass like a motherfucker,
bottom line Panos is my muse and hes a BOY<

oooh i know Diablo Cody! shes got the requisite comfy in her own skin, she;ll
never wear half of what im making, but shes got a major statuesque power, i
want a girl who loves dresses and dressing and dressing exquisitely but with
some Sally Bowles and some Edwardian Lily Langtree to her, meat onthe bones
is crucial and a willingness to truly not give a shit, i would never make
something not totally sexy,.well first and foremost i am my own muse, and
theres a particlar crepe im having remade that hasnt beein production since
1948 youll love it, it was the lycra of the Titanic Teens, i think thats my
era, Upstairs Downstairs England Aesthetic Movement Rossetti Pre Raphealite ,
but a little after the too tight corset and when women had the vote , yep i
may buy Delphos Fortuny’s ( i now have 5) im not planning on repliacting THEM
or anything, but im learning alot fromn these etsy girls and
Gibbousfashions.com people the same way i learnd alot from Rick and MARC
….and will always learn alot from them

okay now my 1st job is not doing Ombre dyeing in my kitchen but writing the
bridges with perfect phrasing so happy thanksgiving to you all except you
slimey bastards, from a Good buddhist to a bad person, i dont hope your
Turkey is rotten, it just willbe, cos thats Karma, i dont do terrible things

Live Clips: Walkmen, Blitzen Trapper/I&Wine

 

All the concert news
‘n’ reviews that’s fit to print.

 

 

By Blurt Staff

 

 

More concert coverage from your friendly neighborhood BLURT
– this time, we’ve the Walkmen & the Decemberists in Ithaca and Blitzen Trapper & Iron and Wine in Baltimore (both reviews featuring exclusive
photos).

 

 

 

 

  • *April S. Engram caught the Walkmen opening for
    the Decemberists at Cornell U in Ithaca,
    NY, on Nov. 9 and succinctly
    observed, “The Walkmen were simply flawless.” (She was pretty impressed by the
    Decemberists too, even though she’d gone to the show to see the openers, noting
    that Colin Meloy & Co. “was able to keep a room fully energized from start
    to finish.”)
  • *Then Zach Herrmann was in the house for the
    Blitzen Trapper/Iron and Wine concert at Baltimore’s
    Rams Head Live! venue on Nov. 18. The openers, noted Herrmann, came out strong
    but ultimately got bogged down with pointless jamming. “Still,” wrote Herrmann,
    “when Blitzen Trapper stuck to what it does best – down-home, electric pop,
    served briskly – the results were enjoyable.” Of Iron and Wine, he pointed out
    that Sam Beam is an admirable risk-taker in concert, audience be damned: “Beam
    largely left behind his sparse and beautiful (but occasionally tepid) balladry
    for something a little more interesting.”

 

Check ‘em out at the provided links, or simply scroll down
the BLURT front page to the reviews section. We’ve also got new book, DVD and
CD reviews being added daily.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM… Blurt!

 

How ya like those

neighborhood BLURT!

 

 

 

 

Gun N’ Roses: Not A Pepper!

 

Don’t count those
redemption coupons before they’re printed, folks.

 

By Fred Mills

 

 

 

 

“Oh My God”! Remember that publicity stunt deal where Dr.
Pepper announced it would give a free soda to every American if Chinese Democracy was released this
year? And how, when it became apparent the album was definitely coming out, the
soft drink maker subsequently announced that folks could go to the Dr. Pepper
website on Nov. 23 and download a coupon that could be redeemed for a drink?

 

Apparently the web traffic was so huge that it crashed the
Pepper servers, so they extended the promotion
for a day – but the server glitches persisted and they were down for much of
Nov. 24.

 

Now, according to a report in Billboard, Axl Rose’s lawyer Alan Gutman is accusing Dr. Pepper of
defrauding its customers and not only wants the company to extend the offer
even longer but also take out full page ads in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, USA Today and The Wall Street Journal apologizing for
what he calls an “unmitigated disaster.”

 

Wrote Gutman in a letter sent to Dr. Pepper CEO Larry Young,
“Dr Pepper was completely unprepared for the traffic to its site. The
entire point of your campaign has been to use public interest in Axl Rose and
Guns N’ Roses as a lure to increase consumer awareness of Dr Pepper.”
Gutman also made it clear that his attitude is that Dr. Pepper was exploiting
the Guns N’ Roses name with the “disingenuous giveaway offer.”

 

Well, duh. Axl is paying a lawyer to figure out THAT?

 

No comment yet from Dr. Pepper, so we can’t be sure if this
was the “Perfect Crime” on their part. But we do suggest that they “Don’t Cry”
because as everyone knows of the “One In A Million” drink, “It Tastes Good,
Don’t It.” So why not just “Live And Let Die” and have a little “Patience,”
because all this “November Rain” will stop soon enough along with all the
“Double Talkin’ Jive” the lawyers are dishing out. [That’s quite enough, Fred. – Ed.]

 

 

 

New Cobain/Nirvana Book Due in Jan.

 

 

Does the world really
need another book about grunge et al? Apparently so…

 

By Fred Mills

 

Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, Dave Grohl and Nirvana get the
once-over again a forthcoming book from author John Luerssen (Rivers’ Edge: The Weezer Story; Dancing
Days: The Led Zeppelin Reader
) and the Rock Reader Books publisher.
Luerssen compiled and edited The Nirvana
Reader: 1988-1992
from mostly extant sources including out of print
articles and interviews in order to deliver what Luerssen hopes will be a truer
and more concise history of the band as scene through the lens of the media in
real time.

 

“There have been way too many Nirvana books,” Luerssen told
online Nirvana fan portal NirvanaClub.com (www.nirvanaclub.com).  “So what gives me the right to put The Nirvana Reader together? Well, for
one thing, I’m tired of the conjecture. I’m sick of the conspiracy theories,
and I really just wanted to go back to the start and read about the band as
they evolved during the first four years.”

 

The 184-page book, priced at $19.95 (or $6.95 as a digital
download) arrives on Jan.5. Go to self-publishing website Lulu.com for more
details.
