I'm going to Record And Tape Traders and picking up my tickets either today or tomorrow.

 

Here's the easy way to recognize me. I have a JewFro, and the "bangs" are dyed red. >_>

Hi Phil, Steph, Katie, everyone.

 

I wish I could go to concerts but I have an extremely busy semester so it'll have to wait until summer. :( But good news is I'm almost done with my undergraduate degree, yay~! *_*

 

Btw black_dahlia, I believe Matt is 5'6". Well, unless he shrunk. :p

Hey Bobbie! I know you've been so busy lately! But that's awesome, congratulations!

 

Hmm, I think that if there *were* good shows down here, I probably wouldn't be able to go to most of them because of the age limitations. So, :( .

Ack at your timeload Bobbie, but it's awsome to be making measurable progress! I feel like what I do daily is so meaningless quite often.

 

OK STEPH: I made an effort to come in contact with certain people after the show to make them aware of Florida's rather crappy concert scene...if only I hadn't been a passanger, I'd have hung about by the bus like the sad sod I am. (More involving said subject when I can handle writing a full report.)

 

Mark: Grrrr :mad: ...well not really...I'm jealous of TCTC...but Bright Eyes more than made up for it last night, and at least some people can see a decent show. It's fun by association. (?)

 

And I am better, Phil. If for nothing else then for going out last night. I wasn't aware concerts could be so lifting (da dun chh). :)

Thanks, Katie. :p I imagine it's really difficult to speak to people, but hopefully he'll realize it on his own soon.

 

Hey Mark you can flaunt all you want. I know I would be if I had all those shows lined up. And if you all can listen to my whining all the time, I should be able to handle your flaunting. :p

Ah the good old american muse fans are here tonight (bobbie katie lady yummeh piano man where s lana :p) .

 

Talking about concerts i m more into past bands (and artists) those days than current ones .

 

I ve been watching a movie called "Podium" which is about a guy who is playing a late french singer (really famous in the 60's 70's and called Claude Francois) .

 

Claude francois (known as "cloclo") here was unique and one of a kind : he was dancing (with his "claudettes" sexy female dancers) while singing his songs and it was really entertaining .

 

 

In the movie the character does the same, he tours France doing it with his own dancers and i was singing and needing to dance on the seat in the theater when singing it :D

 

Also i ve been watching the RATM s DVD in LA and it s insane .

 

As for future gigs , Velvet Revolver could come soon in Europe promoting their self debuted album (realease date : May 18th) .

 

I m also planning to do Reading in August all depends of the bands and my money (and time :p)

Ack! This is what happens when I have a week from Hell that involves no time for anything except school, dance, and OM!

 

Thank goodness for this thread. And actually, not *everything* was lost...I have stuff like Steph's birthday, the Mashed Potato lessons, and the attendence. Well, most of it...I've been slacking, so I apologize to everyone I'm missing!

 

For nostalgia:

 

 

Muhaha...In an unprecedented display of boredom, I decided to see how many of us there actually are.

Well, unless they do the history of the Brits or something. I don't hear too many awards shows being shown on there. But then again, I don't watch TV often. ^_^()

Bleh I listened tonight to Y100 to see if Time Is Running Out was still on the Y100 Cage Match and it wasn't. The champion was that girl that used to be in Hole (Melissa whatever her name is) I don't know when Muse lost but it was either Friday or yesterday. That really sucks. Now they probably won't play Time Is Running Out again for a while (if it all) Damn the crappy musical taste that the people have around here.

Well, I think A&E are secretly an anglomaniac network. They distributed both the BBC's Pride and Prejudice here and all the old Prisoner episodes.

At least they get some radio play there.

 

I can't think of a single Metro area (Baltimore/D.C.) radio station that would play Muse...

This is just a funny interview from 2000 tour in the USA.

 

 

April 20, 2000

Musing on how not to do an interview

 

Muse: Cute, talented British lads who dig paramotoring? Or Korn bad boys with foul attitudes? You decide.

Muse is the next big thing — at least according to all the top critics and kids in England. Their debut Showbiz has garnered praise and record sales. They've recently toured with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bush and the Foo Fighters.

 

Appropriately, the band played Fletcher's last Sunday to a small crowd of mostly teenage girls. We caught up to them on the back of their swanky tour bus, and what ensued could be used in a manual on How Not To Do an Interview. Muse thought they had agreed to a serious interview by professional journalists, and they were wrong.

 

Sara: What's the dumbest thing you've done since you were signed to [Madonna's label] Maverick?

 

Matt: Dumbest?

 

Sara: Have you made out with [Maverick artist] Alanis Morrisette yet?

 

Dom: Made out with her? No. Um ... No. We haven't met her.

 

Matt: We haven't met Madonna, either. That's pretty dumb. I suppose we should've by now.

 

Phil: Yeah, isn't there a big signing party, you know, where they invite all the other people on the label?

 

Matt: Yeah, but she wasn't invited.

 

Phil: Lame. We heard something somewhere that you guys were not into Britpop. So, what's the kind of stance on that? Do you prefer American music?

 

Matt: Mid-'90s Britpop was mostly about retro; it was very retro sounding, like mostly '60s bands. And, we're sort of taken to different sorts of music.

 

Sara: I hear that you listen to Korn.

 

Matt: No, I don't like them, and I never have.

 

Dom: [shrugs shoulders] Yeah, I like Korn.

 

Matt: As far as rock music goes, I've been listening to more American bands like Rage Against the Machine and Primus sort of thing, rather than the Bluetones.

 

Sara: But, Korn. Seriously, they rock out.

 

Dom: Yeah. They're a good band.

 

Sara: Are you going to wear your hair like that?

 

Dom: Like what?

 

Sara: Like with the dreadlocks.

 

Dom: Um, yeah. I might grow it out a bit. Braid it. ... Eat some burgers.

 

Phil: Have you taken any influence from that stuff? I mean, do you see yourself getting more heavy as time goes on?

 

Matt: Um, we're influenced by a whole lot of stuff. I spent a long time doing sort of classical guitar, Spanish guitar. I think a lot of the chords come from stuff like that.

 

Dom: Tom Waits.

 

Matt: Tom Waits, yeah, Jeff Buckley, Rachmaninoff, Chopin.

 

Sara: Rock n' roll.

 

Phil: So, Liisa here has created an interpretive dance to "Sunburn." I don't have a question about that, but I just wanted to mention it.

 

[Awkward silence for about two minutes.]

 

Sara: Um... So, I hear you grew up together. Did you get into hijinx growing up?

 

Matt: [incredulously] Hijinx?

 

Sara: Yeah. Did you do anything bad?

 

Matt: Bad?

 

Sara: In trouble? Did you ever get into trouble?

 

Matt: Yeah. Why?

 

Sara: Well, what was the most trouble you got into?

 

Matt: Well, I used to steal cars. I got into trouble for doing that. And I got into trouble for ... I used to grow large amounts of [whispers] hash, cannabis.

 

Sara: [laughing] Are you lying?

 

Matt: [not laughing] No. I used to make my money from doing that. I did that only about two years ago. I used to grow extremely large amounts of it. But the place I lived in, the guy started to deal other drugs as well, and people started dying. So I left.

 

Phil: [sarcastically] Awesome.

 

Matt: [visibly upset] And that's cool, man, isn't it?

 

Dom: [on the side to Sara] I just used to do vandalism.

 

Matt: So, I'm enjoying the money while it lasts.

 

Sara: Do you have a plan for an ideal future?

 

Matt: Ideally, I'd like to make millions of pounds, sell millions of records, sell out, and die young. But that's not going to happen, is it? I reckon we'll probably split up in a couple of years and pack it in. I'd like to be a paramotor instructor, which is like the thing with a parachute and the pedal on your back. I'd like to teach that, 'cause that's a really good sport.

 

Sara: You've done that?

 

Matt: Yeah. I own one.

 

Sara: Hmm.

 

Matt: [very excited] Yeah, see, it's only just started up in San Diego. It started in France ten years ago. It's only become legal in America and England two years ago. It's a brand new sport. It's, it is a really good sport. And that's what I'm thinking of doing after all this.

 

Sara: That sounds scary. [And like bullshit]

 

Matt: No. no. It's totally safe. That's why it's so good. It's the safest way to fly. You've got a parachute, so if anything breaks, you just [puts hand out in flying motion] cruise.

 

Sara: When people hear your music, do they often say, like, "Let it go! Cheer up!"?

 

Matt: [somewhat annoyed] Um, sometimes, yeah.

 

Sara: Do you have a reaction to that?

 

Matt: Well, I think that since I'm doing music, it makes me a genuinely happy person. I'm pretty content in life. I think if I wasn't doing that, I'd be a huge evil. You know what I mean?

 

Sara: Um, sure. [like hell]

 

Matt: [Getting more frustrated] It's like, when you see that sort of music, to some people it's just, you know, rough on the surface and to some people it's just a bit of a joke, you know? In fact, a lot of some people generally view other people's lives as a bit of a joke, anyway, cause they haven't ...

 

Sara: They don't know them?

 

Matt: Yeah, exactly. And some people have different tastes. That's just life. So if people say, like, "Why are you doing that?" I would say, "Why are you fucking sitting here talking to me? Why don't you go and talk to someone else?"

 

Sara: That's what you've got to tell them.

 

Phil: So, how do you guys like the road life? Cities here are a lot farther away from each other. Has the travel been wearing on you?

 

Matt: Not really. We've got a nice bus. It's easy days. It's a good job. I recommend it extremely. You get to travel.

 

Sara: Well, if you've got talent.

 

Matt: Well, you haven't got to have talent. We're fakes. We only pretend.

 

Dom: We only pretend we've got talent.

 

Matt: It's a hoax. Really. But enough of that.

 

Sara: Don't let the secret out.

 

Matt: [very seriously] I'm just joking.

 

Dom: [laughs, as if he had us fooled]

 

Phil: How do you guys entertain yourselves on the bus?

 

Sara: That's a teen magazine question!

 

Phil: So what?

 

Matt: Um, there's all sorts of ways. Usually sleeping. Off the bus, the entertainment happens.

 

Dom: Porn. Group sex. Orgies.

 

Matt: On very rare occasions. It's been very rare on the US tour.

 

Phil: Have you been writing material for the next album yet?

 

Matt: Yeah, we wrote five songs today.

 

Phil: Are you playing any of it tonight?

 

Dom: Yeah, we'll be playing a couple.

 

Matt: Two. Two. We'll play two tonight.

 

[awkward silence.]

 

Sara: Phil, you're going to have to ask a question.

 

Matt: Are you coming to the gig?

 

Sara: Yeah. We're coming.

 

Phil: When you play live, do you have it stripped down? I mean, I just saw the Flaming Lips and they're really into big performances...

 

Matt: Oh, yeah yeah!

 

Phil: ... and theatrics.

 

Matt: Yeah, we toured with them. I like some stuff they do. Sort of like Tom Waits does that confetti thing. I'd definitely be into that. But, no, we're not doing that now.

 

Phil: So, what's the best band you like to tour with so far?

 

Matt: Pavement. We toured with Pavement — they were good. Sort of Live, Bush...

 

Sara: [laughs loudly]

 

Matt: [laughing] yeah, Bush is really good. [stops laughing] Yeah, well, Pavement. There was us, Flaming Lips and Pavement — that was a really good tour in Europe so that was really nice.

 

Phil: So, who else do you think is making good music right now... besides Korn of course?

 

Matt: That's not me! That's him! [points to Dom].

 

Dom: Soul Wax. They're like Beck.

 

Matt: But sort of like different. [Oh, really?]

 

Dom: But there's not a whole lot of new bands. I've been getting into more stuff like Hendrix, the new Rage Against the Machine album.

 

Matt: Yeah! Rage Against the Machine. There's some good new albums. That Rage Against the Machine album, the Tom Waits album is a good album.

 

Phil: That's a great album.

 

Matt: I think that's the best one from last year.
