"Nile Rodgers digs on Etc”. This was an incredible thing to see just before setting off for our gigs in Jakarta and Bandung. Hard to take it in. The idea is such a crazy honour. 
For some, it might be permission to gloat. I’m won’t. But I know this will be something nice to remember, and a cool source of strength, next time some clueless goon or power-tripper is lording it or wanting us to jump through hoops. It’s unlikely such people know about like music like Nile Rodgers does.  
I’m sure there’s a world somewhere where this is recognised as being more valuable than an award, chart position or university degree. Can’t get over it. It’s so very appreciated.

On today in 1993 Nirvana play at The University of Akron in Akron, OH. The show started with an improvisional intro with the band members in costume for Halloween. Kurt was Barney (with a bottle of Jack Daniel’s in his hand, which he apparently chugged through the mask’s mesh mouth), Pat was Slash, Dave was a mummy, & Krist was a white-faced “reverse Ted Danson” with “P.C.” on his forehead for “Politically Correct.” (The actor Ted Danson had recently been ridiculed for making a public appearance in black-face with his girlfriend Whoopi Goldberg.) After “About A Girl,” someone in the audience threw a shoe at Kurt. Kurt took the shoe, urinated in it, & then asked who the shoe belonged to. The shoe’s owner replied that it was thrown onstage by someone else. Kurt apologized and said he would have to buy the person a new pair of shoes.

Return of the kings" — A review of Franz Ferdinand’s "Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action" album as seen in Singapore’s English-language daily, The Straits Times. September 5, 2013.

"Zesty… archly aware… sharp shooters… McCartney gone evil… The chaps are art-rockers but without the supercilious air of nonsense…" Put here to entertain FFFanatics, Helen Chase, me and you (amongst others). 

"Love Illumination sways like Robert Palmer’s 1986 pop hit Addicted To Love, and shares the same emo desperation.”  I hadn’t spotted that quality before. Mr Palmer: emo? Who knew?  

Either way, great album with great songs. Have a lovely day.

Hopefully we get to play this in K.L. later this week.
