Rachid Taha, electrifying raï fusion artist, died today.

Seeing him play live was a fucking revelation. his songs made my body move in unfamiliar ways, which is the benchmark of any great show.

Sophie and Ed are great folks, huge assets to our community who deserve your support.

(+Sophie Lagace, sometimes I'll still seek out those AP reports from back in the SGA days. All hail the Lord of Blood!)

So philosophically I am opposed to the idea of guilty pleasures. I think people should own their fucking joy goddammit.

But then, there's this. The jury cannot aquit.

cw: uncritical use of the term "Rebel Yell," regressive gender role stuff, man explaining pleasure to woman, uncanny valley old rock star looks, crowd patter over the guitar solo (thx Johnstone), velveeta pop hard rock with monotonous rhythm that still manages to be catchy as hell, white guy dancing, bleeped obscenities in stage patter after playing a song about dirty fucking.

bet there's some autotune in there too.

At least we know where the chest prosthetic from Wrath of Khan went. either that or Billy Idol is a replicant straight from the vat.

gotta say that Miley Cyrus has a pretty great rock n' roll voice tho.

The freakout jazz is the least inexplicable thing here! The German fascination with the dude's acrylic bass drum and his hi-hat toe is frankly more mysterious to me.

Tagging +Mark Hunt, because dope outfits.

I can hear +Jason Corley shaking his head sadly as I post yet another song from the "oh, that's a cover?" file.

Seattle people! My band Freak Andy is playing a gig at the Hummingbird in Columbia City at 7 on Sunday. Pro tip: arrive early and hit the tipple because friendly drunks seem to have the best times at our shows.

And if you hate singing drummers, that's cool*, there's lots of bands playing the neighbourhood that night, it's a whole thing so get on the damn light rail and come see us.

*not cool

Hands up if, like me, you're so culturally backwards that you didn't know that Soft Cell's Tainted Love is a cover.

The original is crazy hot! Listen and be improved:
