We will definitely be playing some stuff from Pygmalion, as we never got to play that record live before. I think the live set will be a pretty fair reflection of our career and our hits — or not hits as they were. But then we thought it would be good if we could raise a bit of money to make the record, and doing a couple of gigs would enable us to do that. The band was castigated in many quarters of the UK press; condemned for being well spoken and middle class and portrayed as having nothing to say.
And unfortunately for Slowdive, the problems went beyond bad reviews. Keeping the band going was incredibly hard.
We were young and naive; we had terrible management and a terrible accountant who ended up in prison. The business side of it was a complete mess.
The seeming ordeal of bad reviews and financial woes was put into perspective after the birth of her son, Jesse, in If you still want to love McCartney at 64, this is an album to adore for the right reasons.
Bearing a considerably bleaker approach than North Carolina's more celebrated hip-hop acts, the tour's apt blend of heavy and headrocking is greeted by Charlotte's nigh-auspicious Supastition. But Dodo Birdthe bill's unsigned bandcould be the trigger puller here, big rock 'n' roll movement and changes successfully managed with percussion, massive acoustic patterns and slight electronic augmenting. GC Dresden Dolls, The Red Paintings, Lincoln Theatre Drama geeks and teenage scenesters give big props to emo-pop outfit Panic at the Disco for bringing theatrical decadence onto the stage and out of obscurity.
But before it was vogue to paint yourself up like an extra from cabaret, Boston's unorthodox duo Dresden Dolls were formulating the s piano-style dancehall ditties and goth-punk that all the kiddies are rockin' out to today.
Beautiful and disquieting at the same time, Brian Vigilone's manic drumming and Amanda Palmer's deep-throated sassiness splashed out over staccato chords is punk-wave Brechtian-theatre with a psychosomatic spurn. Eclectic alt-rockers The Red Paintings start off the evening.
Poet and emcee shirlette ammons writes in ultra-hypertextual verse, her cultural allusions and metaphors rich, dynamic and provocative. The all-stars behind herNic Slaton, Chris Boerner, The Apple Juice Kid and Matt McCaughanshift from ambient throbs to feverish pulses with a sanguine energy, funk, jazz, hip-hop and Motown dissoliving together into not-to-be-ignored polycultural solution.
GC Totimoshi, Caltrop, Wetlands As relation to Matt Pike goes, Oakland's Totimoshi is more High on Fire than Sleep, though the three-piece's variable assault on blistering instrumentals and ragged, trebly solos inching over scabrous, doped guitars certainly calls the originals to mind. Still, frontman Tony Aguilar seems to be more into concision and comprehension than his Bay progenitors.
Caltrop, one of the Triangle's most capably heavy metal bands, need to make a record: Their debut EP grafts Slint shifts to Sleep sprawl to Shellac stiffness in an unimaginably perfect way. I just wanted to experiment with my voice and see what I could do.

Each song is very different. The first track on the album. That was a bit strange. Did you put that on because you love Scotland and Ireland? No, not at all. I love it but I have been hearing it for the last seven years with Mojave 3 and it was time to do something different. The Uillean pipes which we use on the album came about, for example, because we did a lot of recording in Cornwall. My parents have a house down there and opposite them lives a guy who works for Hobgoblin Music.
He knows a lot of musicians.
I think he repairs and makes mandolins as well. I was thinking about having a mandolin on the album so I just asked him if he knew anyone who plays it.
He said that there was this guy called Jerome who lives up the road who plays the Uillean Pipes.
He came down and did it in the kitchen Laughs PB: Yeah, he just blew me away when he played them. They are so powerful and so loud especially, when you are in a small kitchen. It was just about doing different things. I will start with the EP. It was just a giggle really because on the percussion side of there are a lot of little things on the album all done separately and then put together. That's the one that I thought sounded like Tracy Chapman. Neil and Ian McCutcheon-Mojave 3 percussionist really like that one.

Can we have it? Joe and I sometimes record on our computers. We put down ideas and then listen to them and then come up with songs. That song was originally a lot slower on demo than it is on the EP.
I was going to say that quite a lot of the titles have a lot of hurt in the songs. It depends on what mode of writer you are. I tend to be quite quiet. I spend a lot of time observing and gathering information. And onto the album! Is that a squeezebox on there as well? There are more insects on 'Hope'.

Is that another one of Dave's? Yeah, that one is in C. I wanted to make it an organic record. It reminded me of Lee Hazlewood as well. I was thinking spaghetti westerns and I wanted it to sound a bit like Ennio Morricone.
I played lots of guitar on that track you see PB: That was kind of my ode to Neil Young. Would you like to play more gigs? Rachel will now be playing with the Willard Grant Conspiracy for 3 dates at the end of November.
