Mark Ronson on hope, hits and Amy Winehouse: ‘I loved being in her company. She was so funny’

The superstar producer nearly quit music during lockdown. Now he’s starting a ‘new phase’ with a TV show. He discusses therapy, paparazzi – and being tucked in by Robin WilliamsMark Ronson has been a DJ longer than he hasn’t: his entire adult life, sometimes working four or five nights a week, since he was 18. “What is that?” He casts his mind back and counts. “Twenty-five – no, 27 years. Jesus.”In this time, he has been a staple of the New York scene, the studio partner of Amy Winehouse and a s...

My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields: ‘We wanted to sound like a band killing their songs’

The band have released only one album since 1991 classic Loveless, yet their influence remains undimmed. Their frontman discusses destroying buildings with noise, losing his mojo – and preparing new musicIn early 1988, My Bloody Valentine decided that they were, as their de facto leader, Kevin Shields, puts it today, “finished”. You can see how they might have come to that conclusion. They had started life in the early 80s as a Dublin post-punk band, relocated to Berlin at the suggestion of the ...

Rehabilitating the sacred side of Arthur Sullivan, Britain’s most performed composer

November 2018 saw the release of the first ever professional recording of Arthur Sullivan’s oratorio, The Light of The World, based on Biblical texts and focused on the life and teaching of Jesus. Reviewers focused as much on the piece as on the performance. The critical reaction to this work, which had been largely ignored and rarely performed for over 140 years, was extraordinary. Classical music magazines and websites hailed a revelatory discovery, with music of an engaging freshness and dire...

Do That Thing You’re Not Good At

I rushed into the kitchen to share the great news with my family. “You guys! I made it! I got a spot in the musical!” My young teenage heart was pumping with pride and excitement. My two older sisters looked at each other and then back at me. “Mr. Matthews thinks you can sing and dance?” They burst into laughter, and I almost couldn’t blame them. I was notorious for lacking rhythm and coordination. I tripped on my own feet just walking across the room. Finding a key to sing in and sticking with ...

Paul Simon Deconstructs “Mrs. Robinson” (1970)

There’s nothing like having a deadline. When Simon and Garfunkel were called on by director Mike Nichols to provide music for his 1967 comedy The Graduate, the film was already being edited, and the duo were working on the movie studio clock. To hear Simon tell it in this interview with Dick Cavett (from the same interview we featured earlier this week), it was that crunch time that produced one of their best songs, and their biggest hit, “Mrs. Robinson.” In fact, the song stitched toget...

Listen to the fiery original gospel version of "Jesus Is Just Alright"

In 1972, The Doobie Brothers released "Jesus Is Just Alright," a cover song that instantly became a US hit and confounded listeners ever since. Was it ironic? (Nope.) Are the Doobies actually Jesus freaks? (Nah.) Why did Christian rappers DC Talk release their own cheesy cover of the song with "modernized" lyrics in 1992? — Read the rest

The Glass House turns 25: Members of No Doubt, Vandals and more reflect on Pomona concert venue

On Jan. 25, 1996, local concert promoters (and brothers) Paul and Perry Tollett officially opened The Glass House in the arts district of Pomona. Having previously booked ska shows and acts like The Ramones and Rage Against the Machine in venues throughout the region, the Tolletts called on their friends No Doubt to headline the new venue for two nights. The Anaheim-based band had released “Tragic Kingdom” three months prior and was starting to garner mainstream attention. “At that time our albu...

Jeremih Taken Off Ventilator & Transferred Out of ICU After COVID-19 Health Scare

Jeremih is on the road to recovery after contracting COVID-19. The R&B singer’s family says he’s out of the ICU and has been transferred to a regular hospital room. “Jeremih has been transferred out of ICU,” his family said in a statement. “He will spend the rest of his recovery time in a regular hospital room.

The Month In Hardcore: November 2020

One guy has on boxing gloves. His Power Trip shirt is tucked into some gym shorts. I think there’s a mouthguard in his mouth. This is a few days before Halloween, so the whole ensemble is presumably a costume. But it’s functional, too. Because this guy is just out here punching the shit out of everyone. So is everyone else. It’s just a room full of motherfuckers whomping each other and then occasionally pausing for long enough to group-yell some lyrics about killing cops. The camera barely even ...

Janis Joplin & Tom Jones Bring the House Down in an Unlikely Duet of “Raise Your Hand” (1969) If you’re a fan of Tom Jones and you don’t care who knows it, then no one needs to justify the jovial Welsh superstar’s lounge-soul covers of pop, R&B, and rock songs to you . Certain purists have been a tougher sell on Jones’ act, including, in 1969, Neil Young, who joined Jones onstage once, and only once, on the This is Tom Jones show and immediately regretted it. But who cares about Neil Young’s cranky dislike of commercial television...

#TrackoftheDay: “George Romero Will Be At Our Wedding”

ShowbreadUSA (2006) Yet another song where I can’t remember finding it for the live of me, but I was very surprised when I looked up the band and saw they’re a Christian band. I mean…a band that happens to be Christian and not a Christian band, if you get what I mean. I mean…unless they’re saying something about zombie Jesus in this zombie song that I missed.

When R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe Created the Lyrics for “The Voice of Harold” by Riffing on the Liner Notes of an Old Gospel Album (1983)

R.E.M. is one of those bands that just thinking about can send me into a reverie of memories of the rooms of friends with whom I listened to “Pretty Persuasion,” “Rockville,” and the poetry of “7 Chinese Bros.”—one of Michael Stipe’s early, incomprehensible songs, like “Swan Swan H,” whose cryptic lyrics one must seemingly take on faith. The song must mean something, after all, to Stipe. Maybe the mystery of who, exactly, the “seven Chinese brothers swallowing the ocean” were to him woul...

Orlando Brown Gives Testimony in Church About Quitting Drugs & Turning to God

Orlando Brown says he’s done with drugs and is ready to give his life to God. Footage recently surfaced of Orlando giving a testimony at a church in Texas telling the congregation that he has turned his life around after previously heading into a downward spiral after experimenting with drugs. The 32-year-old started out by telling everyone his name and saying that they may recognize him “from a little show called ‘That’s So Raven.'” He went on to state that he dabbled in drugs, including crysta...

A Musician’s Call to Mysticism

An astounding fact bears our reflection. In the Mass, we experience the reality for which the mystic heart longs—real union with our God. However, we receive such grace only in the degree to which our souls are disposed to accept it. (1) When your music at Mass influences the readiness of our souls, by stirring within us a deeper grasp of what is taking place on the altar, your welcoming of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament has glorious repercussions! Imagine the increase in His grace that c...

Conway the Machine – “From King to a GOD” (Album Review)

Conway the Machine is a 38 year old MC from Buffalo, New York who’s risen to prominence as a co-founder of Griselda Records with his brother Westside Gunn. The label has put out a lot of the most essential releases from the East Coast within the past 5 years & have quickly become one of the most well-respected crews in hip hop today. Although everyone on the team has always been working their asses off (especially as of late), Conway has definitely stood out the most in 2020. He dropped 2 damn-...

Come with me, and I will make you fishers of the sun.

I wanted to get the text of the Jesus quote right so I could transform it for the post title. Of course, there are many translations of Matthew 4:19, but the one I wanted was "Come with me, and I will make you fishers of men."I couldn't find it. Translations that ended with "I will make you fishers of men" began with "Follow me" or "Come ye after me." Translations that began with "Come with me" had clumsy endings: "Come with me! I will teach you how to bring in people instead of fish," "Come w...
