Young Man Blues

posted October 6th, 2011

Neil Young and his wife Pegi have sent us this message, to add their voices to the chorus of all who were touched by Bert Jansch over the years:

"With deep regret Pegi and I acknowledge the passing of Bert Jansch. Pegi and I were lucky to play with him on all of our shows for the last couple of years. He is a hero of mine, one of my greatest influences. Bert was one of the all time great acoustic guitarists and singer songwriters.... (read more)

Goodbye Bert

posted October 5th, 2011

It is our great misfortune to post this bit of news: guitarist and singer of songs Bert Jansch has passed away. His career as a musician was a long and storied one, and his contributions will be remembered as long as music is remembered. A complete account of Bert's achievements and many other personal reminiscences can be found in a myriad of tributes appearing elsewhere on this sad day. For all of us at Drag City, Bert Jansch was an inspiration - and of... (read more)

SEE BREAD, GOODBYE BREAD

posted September 30th, 2011

If you've been to a show lately, odds are that show has been a Ty Segall show. Didn't notice? We can't hardly believe it, on account of you being such a liar! You like to make yourself a big man by pretending you weren't rocked with fury when you saw Ty - big man! But like a feel-good parasite, Ty's latched hisself onto the 'mellican rock conscience - and admit it or not, you're all suckling from his giving teet! So much so, he's... (read more)

Where were you, Chicago, when CAVE took it to the streets last Thursday and blew out the free world with songs from their new album, NEVERENDLESS? I mean, were you in an office, looking out the window like a sad cow? Were you walking your dog/child, or on a field trip to the library like the rest of your 3rd grade classmates? Were you sitting in your undies, on the couch, reading this web site? Well, you sure fucking missed out on a one-of-a-kind... (read more)

SADIER COMING (Y)OUR WAY

posted September 19th, 2011

We're accustomed to talking up Laetitia Sadier tours, even though they always seem to happen far away in exotic locales like Tel Aviv, Israel or Krakow, Poland. Laetitia's trip, and songs from her album The Trip, appeals to lots of folks all over the planet, you know? Thankfully, we recently discovered we're all on the same planet (so naturally got ourselves a desk in London)! Such revelations also allow us the trippy privilege of finally seeing Laetitia live, here in th' good ol'... (read more)

WATCH AND YOU WILL HEAR "QUAIL AND DUMPLINGS" IN YOUR EAR

posted September 15th, 2011

"Prince" Boniface "Bonnie" Billy goes by many names—St. Nick, Lucifer, AKA Joe— but close friends call him by his "nick name", which is short for Nicolas Nameham, which is long for NiNa , which is backwards for aNiN, which sounds a bit like "anon" which is short for "anonymous", and he prefers to keep it that way. Only recently has he come clean against the wall of speculation concerning his mysterious origins.

Which brings us to the... (read more)
