Cracking show, everyone- ❤️🤘🏽 ↘️↘️↘️↘️↘️↘️ https://louderthanwar.com/dresden-dolls-troxy-london-live-review/ Amanda Palmer Brian Viglione “Watching The Dresden Dolls is like watching a revolution unfold beneath spotlights. They’re the perfect combination of punk fuelled anger, musical cabaret and feminist power. Each note they play, each song they sing carries the rage of a nation that will no longer be silenced. The Dresden Dolls aren’t just a band, they’re a community. The voice of the outsider, the alternative, the different, in a society that’s so desperate to eradicate unrepresented voices. And what better way to revolt than through the joy and celebration of live music?”

In the spirit of reconciliation, on the Dolls Bandiversary in England, and in our tradition of dressing up as other bands on Halloween, we pay tribute to one of England's finest. Inspired by the band's 1996 landmark gigs (night 2 outfits for us) at Manchester's Maine Road, we celebrate on our second night of the Dolls shows at Troxy in London. Brian as Noel, mimicking the arms out stretched and bows to the audience, and Amanda with the trade mark tambourine and each with his favorite beer, we went for broke with Andrew and Ben Ellis on bass and had a great time hearing you all sing along. ~ "Those two gigs were important. They came at a crucial time in Oasis history, landing before Knebworth had been announced but after the release of ‘What’s The Story (Morning Glory)?’, after ‘Roll With It’ vs ‘Country House’ and after ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ and ‘Wonderwall’ had done their thing in the charts. The band were in a curious, fleeting position: teetering on the edge of being a bona fide cultural phenomenon, yet still with something to prove. In retrospect the shows marked the last moments Oasis could truly be considered a band ‘of the people’, rather than a band ‘for the people’. On a more basic level they were the first time the band had ever headlined a stadium and, thanks to a snappily released VHS documenting the event (the ‘There And Then’ live video hit shelves within half a year), the first time kids who couldn’t get into the gigs had a chance to see what all the fuss was about. I’d wager that a lot of successful post-Oasis British rock musicians’ first ‘gig’ was that live footage. Here, with fresh input from rhythm guitarist Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs and Oasis sleeve designer Brian Cannon, are five reasons why those gigs ruled: 1). Noel’s guitar http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7PalnZ2EL8 Probably the most famous instrument in British music since Macca’s Hohner bass, Noel’s Union Jack Epiphone Sheraton was played for the first time at Maine Road. It’s become the epitome of what Britpop was all about – unabashed pomposity married to traditionalist grandeur. Apparently, according to Bonehead, it was a gift from Noel’s then-girlfriend, Meg Matthews. “She got a guy in London who did up guitars to spray a Union Jack on it. I remember he pulled it out and I was like, ‘Whoa…’. It’s pretty iconic now. Instantly recognisable. You stick a picture of a Union Jack Epiphone on any wall and say, ‘Name that guy’ and it’s ‘Noel Gallagher’ every time, isn’t it?” 2). The way the band walk on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PW_g-ZjX3Eo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zN9h99grshI Oasis weren’t alone in the 90s when it came to having gallons of onstage confidence. From Cobain being wheeled out at Reading Festival to a frightfully youthful-looking Damon and Graham laid bare at Finsbury Park, to Fatboy Slim and The Prodigy’s chest-beating heroics, to The Spice Girls, to Bjork, Nick Cave and Radiohead re-defining the word intense, the entire decade felt brash and OTT when it came to how spectacular gigs could be. Latest News This was in huge contrast to the inhibited shoe-gazing scene that preceded grunge, and few walk-ons in rock have ever been as self-assured – as cocky – as Oasis’ second night at Maine Road. Everything about it was forceful, from the drama of the chopper sounds being played at full blast over the PA (surely a sly nod to the gang culture that still existed on the streets around the stadium and in Moss Side at that point), to the way Noel strides onstage: arms outstretched, dead-eyed, face purposely screwed up yet blatantly trying hard not to break into a massive smile. Even his jacket became iconic at that gig. It was made by Penfield and, helped along by ‘There And Then’, it pretty much re-defined what the word ‘cagoule’ meant for people under 30. I’m not kidding here: that jacket is still being ripped off today and, sensing its influence, Penfield re-issued a carbon copy of it as part of their 40th anniversary campaign last year. Vogue paid tribute in an article entitled ‘How Noel Gallagher Made the Nerdy Trainspotter Anorak a Streetwear Classic’, by writing that the guitarist’s attire at the gigs “became an instant hit with city-dwellers across the globe”. You can credit him, it continues, “with elevating the anorak from trainspotting mundanity to the realm of streetwear cool”.

JUDY BLUME, THE QUEEN of TRUTH. it's her 80th birthday today.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY! JUDDDYYYYYY....and MAY WE ALL FIND MORE TRUTH THAN WE CAN HANDLE. please read, watch, listen, spread, love. xxxamanda

this is incredibly sad news. 46. god. dolores o’riordan was such an important & (as usual in this industry) under-appreciated poet-power-voice, influencing so many... the song “half jack” from the 1st dolls record was written directly after i heard “zombie”. hold your loved ones tight. i’m in new orleans right now and i think i feel a cover coming on. may her voice carry on & on... -afp http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-42696376 http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-42696376
