Secret Chiefs 3 in Italy 2010

13th Dec 10 (Mon) 2 comments

So, a new video has just surfaced… possibly for an upcoming DVD from the Secret Chiefs 3‘s jaunt in Italy earlier this year?  Here is their cover of John Carpenter’s “Halloween” at Grottarossa in Rimini, Italy:

Slow start with the drum intro and the drums being a bit high in the mix, but I like the way it was shot.  Needs some more strings (Timb Harris) and more variation (I’ve never been all that fond of Halloween’s repetition)… anyway, I’m hoping something comes out.  Regardless of the choice of leading off with this song on vimeo, I’m stoked for new SC3 on the horizon.  No clue on the legitimacy of a future release.  Just rumor mill at this stage.

Will it come out before Book of Souls?

Um… yeah, Jesus will come back before Book of Souls… said the atheist.

Faith No More & Sparks (live last night)

2nd Dec 10 (Thu) Leave a comment

A lot of bands put out special one-off collaborations.  Not many actually perform those one-off songs in a live setting.

Well, Faith No More‘s collaboration with Sparks called “This Town Ain’t Big Enough For the Both of Us” is one of my favorite b-sides of theirs.  They did it last night at the Los Angeles Paladium show (Dec 1, 2010)… with Sparks…

Officially, surprisingly MORE jealous of those who went – as this seems legendary.  FYI, the recorded version was released as a UK single and on Sparks’ Plagiarism album.

John Zorn in San Fran 2009

First off… Happy Pi Day

Also, tomorrow (Sunday the 15th) marks the end of the run of special John Zorn’s Masada at Yoshi’s in San Francisco.  Here’s a YouTube clip of the Secret Chiefs 3 performance of “Omael” from Xaphan on Tuesday night (pardon the video quality, the taper had to keep it “on the down low” due to the venue’s strict policies against such things):

And “Kemuel“…

Anyone able to sneak an audio recording of any of the Zorn Fest shows (below)?  Hit me up
