PS - Check out our mix of songs from Angus’ favorite albums.
Check out a gif and mix I made for next week’s Liars show at LPR.
This one is for Bob. Listen to Rhys Chatham’s beautiful tribute to Robert Ashley, who passed away on March 3 at the age of 83. Here’s an excerpt from Chatham’s remembrance for the Frieze blog:
"My role model was Bob. Heck, I loved his music, but what I wanted to be, when I attained his age, was not to write music exactly like his, but to BE like him. Why, I’d go to his house and see instruments all over the place and Susan Sontag’s book On Photography on the table, and I thought to myself, ‘Holy guacamole, this is what being a composer is all about.’ Never mind his cool shades and sleek look, and his winning way with words; this was a beautiful man, someone to look up to, as virtually all of my close personal friends of my generation did.”
Seth introduced Twitter to the first image of The 8G Band, and now it’s time you learn a bit more about this stacked roster.
Fred Armisen (Bandleader)
You no doubt recognize our bandleader from a little show called Portlandia or, of course, his 11 years on Saturday Night Live….
