In The Court of the Crimson King: King Crimson at 50: A Fan’s Review


I have been a huge fan of the progressive rock band King Crimson for over 45 years and I have seen them over 10 times since 1981. The film In The Court of the Crimson King: King Crimson at 50 got glowing reviews after it premiered at the South By Southwest Festival back in March. So, when the film had its worldwide theatrical and stream release on October 22, I was ready to check it out.

Live Review: Cate Le Bon at Union Transfer in Philadelphia on October 6, 2022


I finally got to see Welsh singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Cate Le Bon after missing her shows that took place earlier this year. I was turned on to Cate by my friend Yasha Goldentyer after he sent me a video link of her doing a fabulous cover of Bill Nelson’s Do You Dream In Colour at one of her recent concerts. I said to myself: Who the hell does covers of Bill Nelson songs? I was instantly hooked. So, I scooped up Le Bon’s six albums and dived into her very eclectic and enchanting music. Many have compared her to The Talking Heads, Kate Bush, Faust, and other art ensembles but Le Bon’s music and lyrics are truly her own and very original. Le Bon is a not just a musician, she is also an accomplished furniture maker as she learnt to make solid wood tables, stools, and chairs from scratch while making her highly acclaimed 2019 album Reward. Her songs are crafted in a similar manner: a lot of pain staking intricacy and detail involved in both. In an interview with Pitchfork, Jeff Tweedy of Wilco stated that Le Bon was "one of the best out there making music now."

Roxy Music Rocks NYC One Last Time


Roxy Music began its 50th Anniversary tour last week in Toronto and Washington, DC. Last night (September 12), their third show was at Madison Square Garden in New York City. I have seen Roxy and Bryan Ferry quite a few times since my first show in Paris, France back in 1979 but I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss this tour as it may very well be their last. The core band was reunited with guitarist Phil Manzanera, woodwinds/sax player Andy Mackay and drummer Paul Thompson back together again since their 2011 tour. The set list included songs from all of their eight studio albums with most coming from their big hit Avalon including the title track, The Main Thing, More Than This, and others. Surprisingly songs the performed a number of songs from For Your Pleasure including In Every Dream Home a Heartache, Do The Strand, Editions of You and The Bogus Man.

The Weather Station Takes Philadelphia By Storm


I finally got to see Tamara Lindeman’s terrific music ensemble The Weather Station yesterday at The Music Hall of World Café Live in Philadelphia on Sunday, April 24, 2022 after two postponements due to the pandemic.

The band membership has changed over the years, but for this USA Tour it includes Lindeman on keyboards, guitar and percussion, Ben Whiteley on bass, Will Kidman on electric guitar and keys, Johnny Spence on Keyboards, and Kieran Adams on drums.

2021 United States Super 8 Film + DV Festival Celebrates 33rd Anniversary!

Super 8mm film was introduced in 1965 by Eastman Kodak at the World’s Fair in New York to help the average person document their everyday lives. Super 8mm was most widely used for filming home movies between the mid 1960s till the early 1990s. Today amateur usage of Super 8mm has been replaced by digital video but the format is still regularly used by filmmakers, artists and students. Some hope to imitate the look of old home movies. Others want to create alternative looks for flashback sequences and altered states of consciousness. Some just like the idea of creating images in the classic style of using actual film. Super 8mm is a relatively inexpensive film, making it popular among filmmakers working on a low budget who still want to achieve the look of real film. Super 8mm has become quite common in theatrical features. J.J. Abrams 2011 film Super 8 pays homage to the little film format. Guy Maddin’s surreal 2006 film Brand Upon The Brain and Jim Jarmusch’s 1997 film Year of the Horse -- a documentary on Neil Young’s band Crazy Horse -- use it too.

New Jersey Film Festival Q&A with Echthaar Director Dominic Kubisch

Dominic Kubisch’s film Echthaar is one of my favorites of the Spring 2021 New Jersey Film Festival. It is beautifully shot, really well acted, really well directed and pretty darn creepy. I immediately thought of some of David Lynch’s films while I was watching it but as it turns out Echthaar Director Dominic Kubisch was more inspired by an underrated Coen Brothers film. Here is my interview with Dominic who resides in Vienna, Austria.

Brand X Rides Again!

During my first semester at Binghamton University (aka SUNY-Binghamton), in 1976, Brand X-- a terrific progressive rock ensemble--came to my rescue. I was playing for the Binghamton soccer team and often had to get up early on Saturday mornings, as the team would depart at that time for games. Unfortunately, my dorm floor-mates would stay up late partying and singing songs from Neil Young’s After the Gold Rush, The Grateful Dead’s American Beauty and others all through Friday nights and into the wee hours of Saturday mornings. I was not getting any sleep as a result despite my banging on their walls and doors. When they finally went to sleep one night at 4AM I got a couple of well-needed hours of shut-eye. At the same time, I was not going to let them get away with keeping me up, so I plotted my revenge as soon as I got up at 6AM. I was going to blast the loudest and most intense music I could find in my record collection at that ungodly hour and give them a taste of their own medicine. The album that I chose was Brand X’s Unorthodox Behaviour. The first track, entitled “Nuclear Burn,” would be the perfect retaliatory wake-up call. The title tells you all you need to know about how loud this song can get. As soon as “Nuclear Burn” blasted out of my speakers, I could hear (if barely) my floor-mates desperately banging on my door and walls. Revenge was sweet. From that day forward, Brand X has remained very dear to my heart.

Witty and sexy feature It Plays Like Love premieres this Friday, September 25, 2015 at New Jersey Film Festival!

A witty and inventive feature film, It Plays Like Love is about a theatre director who hopes to prove that love existed by recreating it on the stage. The movie weaves together four narrative threads: the rehearsals for the play; the director’s memories of the past (which are unreliable, at best); a dinner party with his frustrated cast; and cast auditions (shot with real actors opening up about their love lives). With its mix of scripted drama, honest confessions, timeless questions, confusion, and humor, It Plays Like Love adds up to an experience greater than the sum of its parts.
