Fanatic! Writing to you from London. I have been here for a few days and will be heading out in about 36 hours back to Los Angeles.
The reason I am here is to be onstage with Suicide at the Barbican, tomorrow, the 9th of July. It looks like Bobby Gillespie from Primal Scream and I will be at least two of the people who will be trading vocals with Alan Vega onstage. He and I were talking yesterday about how one goes about doing vocals with a man who never does any vocal the same way twice. It will be interesting. I asked Martin Rev if we can work on a song at soundcheck and he said he will only change it live, so why bother?
I was lucky enough to hear a few tracks from Alan Vega’s new album. Hopefully, it comes out this year. What I heard was great. We will get tracks on the show as soon as they’re good to go.
Below, you will see great tracks for your great ears. I hope you dig it.
Next week, the show will be live. It will be me and engineer Amy.
Until then, be cool and STAY FANATIC!!!
