It List: Thursday 6/7/07

New Science Projects/ Matthew And The Arrogant Sea/Verulf/Bryce Isbell (J and J's Pizza): If you're looking for an unconventional take on the singer-songwriter genre, you'll find more than enough at J and J's tonight. The New Science Projects are the act I've been exposed to the most here, and they are also the most challenging out of this bunch. We mentioned Matthew And The Arrogant Sea earlier in the week since their side project, Gashcat, just performed on Tuesday. Imagine that.

80's Night With DJ G (Hailey's): According to the New Science Projects' Myspace page, "Denton Hipsters" go to this instead of seeing their shows. So if you're too hip, well then act accordingly. I've been to a few myself, and I disagree. There is no way all of those people can be hip.

We are pleased to have Captain Groovy from lollipop Shoppe sitting in with us tonight. We are gonna drop a lot of rare funk, psyche, Dub, post-punk and whatever else catches our fancy. Groovy has a sick collection so I am willing to bet this is gonna be a real crate diggers night. He actually saw bands like Gang of Four when they came through Dallas the first time(early eighties). I expect tonight to be a real school session.

y'know, dude (551p), there's a time and a place and an audience for that kind of humor and it's typically reserved for "amongst friends." Even if wanz is your friend it's pretty tacky to make jokes like that where people don't know who your are, can't hear your inflection, and just don't want to hear you talk like that.

My favorite Patti Smith song. We saw her play it live at Gypsy Tea Room a few years ago. This song send chills up my spine. The lyrics kind of sum "IT" up quite nicely.


from THEO.

Rock N Roll Nigger by Patti Smith

Baby was a black sheep. Baby was a whore.
Baby got big and baby get bigger.
Baby get something. Baby get more.
Baby, baby, baby was a rock-and-roll nigger.
Oh, look around you, all around you,
riding on a copper wave.
Do you like the world around you?
Are you ready to behave?

Outside of society, they're waitin' for me.
Outside of society, that's where I want to be.


Baby was a black sheep. Baby was a whore.
You know she got big. Well, she's gonna get bigger.
Baby got a hand; got a finger on the trigger.
Baby, baby, baby is a rock-and-roll nigger.

Outside of society, that's where I want to be.
Outside of society, they're waitin' for me.

(those who have suffered, understand suffering,
and thereby extend their hand
the storm that brings harm
also makes fertile
blessed is the grass
and herb and the true thorn and light)

I was lost in a valley of pleasure.
I was lost in the infinite sea.
I was lost, and measure for measure,
love spewed from the heart of me.
I was lost, and the cost,
and the cost didn't matter to me.
I was lost, and the cost
was to be outside society.

Jimi Hendrix was a nigger.
Jesus Christ and Grandma, too.
Jackson Pollock was a nigger.
Nigger, nigger, nigger, nigger,
nigger, nigger, nigger.

Outside of society, they're waitin' for me.
Outside of society, if you're looking,
that's where you'll find me.
Outside of society, they're waitin' for me.
Outside of society. (Repeat)

i thought that desensitizing the word "nigger" lent it self to humor in some sort of way. sorry, lets forget about it.

you have a sophisticated way with words. Maybe you should write lyrics for Patti Smith.

Of course you realize the song title is on the first post on this thread.

Ass Fuck? Do you talk to your mother with that mouth?
