I really miss this group lineup. In my opinion their peak was 1999-2004-ish.

Yeah I definitely agree. The band sounded enthusiastic and it was before they started to play all the songs so damn slow. I would stretch the era to 2005 though. That live att Glastonbury (or was it reading?, don't remember now) is amazing as well!

Glastonbury. I was there Smiley

They uploaded that performance in kinda HD onto the iPlayer last month.

I remembered thinking Brian looked quite out of it then, that'd be classed as a 10/10 performance today

Looks like they just reused those two recordings they made recently and had a small video note from Mike

That was brilliant. Didn't learn a lot of new stuff but it was passionately told.

That's good of him to say about both bands, and he's right. There was a time when Mike's band lent a little too heavily on the inflatable palm trees side of things but they're both really good now (although to be honest, I think stuffing both bands full of hardened session musicians has its downsides). People should absolutely see both.

Well, Tribeca film fest is going to be showing some of its films at a drive-ins and other venues this summer.  No indication yet if Long Promised Road will be part of this, but we should know in a few days.

We love the drive in, we love the drive in.


Can someone bootleg it with their dash cam? Smiley

Had to rattle my sabre at Kilimanjaro events this week as they're about to beach the 30 day limit for refund requests for the Chelsea show. Corona or no, these things do have a limit for being dealt with.

ESQ referring to this as an upcoming 5 CD set

The BBs have always been more raw, dangerous and interesting live without 20 session musician bods stood behind them.

The live sound benefits from the struggle to fill the sound. Less is more.

I'd never heard of a bass harmonica before Beach Boy stuff but just listening to one here you can hear where that distinctive Pet Sounds bass sound comes from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VaUh5xX783c

#2 I can hear music (the BB version beat Spector on the charts etc)

Honourable mention for Freddie Mercury's early version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzA4OyalTuI (with Brian May and Roger Taylor, so one bass player away from being a Queen song)

The one I really like (not shown here) is the really swirly script Beach Boys logo

If anything, a lost year might invite the prospect of a bumper money-earning anniversary year more than not. So there is that....

Live at Chelsea/London gig cancelled.

In a shocking turn of events, these 80 year olds will not be playing in a hospital for centenarian war veterans....

Message from AXS, one of the ticket providers:

Quote
Hello,

We are contacting you to let you know that Live at Chelsea 2020 planned to take place this June has been cancelled.

Statement below:
It is with great sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of Live at Chelsea 2020 due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

It is an incredible honour that we are able to host the concert series at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, the home of the famous Chelsea Pensioners, but having this honour does mean that extra consideration has had to be taken in to account when making the decision to cancel the event. Along with our customers, event staff and artists, our top priority is the health and wellbeing of the Chelsea Pensioners, the Royal Hospital staff and all of their families. Being an operational retirement home that houses and cares for over 300 army veterans it is extremely important that the Royal Hospital can continue its role in the daily lives of those who live there without any interruption.

We look forward to returning to The Royal Hospital with Live at Chelsea 2021, where we will be sure to have an extra special celebration, and we hope you will be there alongside us.

In the meantime, we wish everyone the best of the health.

The Live at Chelsea management team.

Due to the large number of shows that are being postponed and cancelled at this time, all ticket matters for this show are being dealt with by the organiser in the first instance. To see what your options are, please visit www.myticket.co.uk/account and register your ticket booking. You will need the details of your booking in order to do so.

Your friends at AXS

And from the organisers:

This too shall pass.....like a gallstone.

Here's a safer link to the ESQ review with Facebook's tracking removed (everything from the question mark onward):

https://esquarterly.com/2020/05/01/mike-love-offers-this-too-shall-pass/

Sounds to me like Mike wrote the words and Scott wrote the music, but Mike is credited as the only writer on it.

There's a lawsuit for a couple decades time then

What instrument would Mike write on? Not aware of him ever playing any chordophones :-)
