In between running from show to show, Jim and Greg took a brief moment to sit down with The Beastie Boys. The hip-hop pioneers were down in Austin to promote their recent concert film, Awesome; I Fucking Shot Thatand spoke to Jim and Greg about making the movie, samplingcopyright laws, and the longevity of their career. After reading Jim's book on psychedelic rockmembers of the band contacted him and explained that they were right up his alley.
They were right. Jimwho caught some of the dark, Velvet Underground -influenced music in the sterile environment of Austin Convention Center, was totally blown away. Greg loves coming to Austin to see bands that may not get to the States otherwise. One such band is Serena Maneesh. The Norwegian group is one of many contemporary bands compared to My Bloody Valentine.
Serena Maneesh is certainly channeling this influence — however, as Greg explains, this band is also quite performative. We next hear some audio of Jim recorded down in Austin. He is describing one of his favorite acts: Tim Fite. The Swedish band Love is All mentioned above is another of Greg 's discoveries. This Swedish indie-pop group is one of many European bands who are rediscovering American music. This band is particularly influenced by musicians like James Chance and the Contortions and Lydia Lunch who fused both jazz and punk.
Our hosts caught Fantastic Voyage - Arthur King & Uncle T - Gangsta Boogie with Sound Opinions H. Jim reports that Chatham recently received a grant allowing him to realize his long-fantasized member guitar ensemble. This year Grady was one of the opening acts. Greg found their huge, overpowering sound on par with that of Chatham's guitar army. He also compares their sound to that of ZZ Top 's early days. Listen for yourself as Greg plays a sample Fantastic Voyage - Arthur King & Uncle T - Gangsta Boogie their release Y.
