Not heard all of it, but do you reckon the plan was to release it as an actual note and then check out?honestly tho, trigger warning, do not listen to that new album if you are feeling very down, it is great but is about as direct a suicide elegy as could be written, so possibly dangerous.
He's been talking about him loads and some of the songs are definitely about topping himself and people he admires who have.ive never been mass keen on his recorded output, its ok but live is where its at for me with him. was there a reason you added it to this thread tho, does it talk about david berman or something?
it's not a new subject for him tho egHe's been talking about him loads and some of the songs are definitely about topping himself and people he admires who have.
phew. don't want anything bad to happen to jeff, he needs to keep going, like a leonard cohen.yeah, it was a joyous concert when we saw him last month - a contrast to the previous time I saw him a couple of years ago where he was visibly and audibly ground down.
I bought the second David Peel & Lower East Side album after that. I'd already got the first cos Cope covers Mother Where Is My Father? Sadly, other than the opening track, its petty crap.I loved that history of punk song, introduced me to so much great stuff (including Jeff Lewis)
