From their journal;

"LA was a Riot!
In Los Angeles this afternoon. Played live on Jonsey's Jukebox on Indie 103.1. Doing the show was fun cause Jonsey has a great sense of humor and doesn't mind going off the rails at all. Whoever owned the building that all the radio stations we're in had a sense of humor too, just look at this sofa. They told us to have a seat but I couldn't bring myself to do it..LoL. The show at the Knitting factory was dyn-o-mite thanks to a rambunctious crew and our beautiful friend Gina who rocked the pipes during the encore!"

Jury 7

Hey guys. Those you who live in L.A. know that the raddest show on the air is "Jonesy's Jukebox," hosted by one-and-only Sex Pistol Steve Jones. Best. Radio Show. Ever.

Anyhoo, recently on Mondays he's started doing a segment called "Jonesy's Jukebox Jury," on which he blindly plays new songs for a panel of music "experts" who then critique the tunes. Instead of a "thumbs up/down" scenario, panelists give the songs ratings of either "mustard" (good) or "pants" (bad).

Past Jury guests have included Duran Duran's John Taylor and Morrissey's guitar player...and now ME! Yes, I will be offering my typical mouthy musical opinions on the show this Monday, March 26, 11am-1pm PST!
and a nobody. a female nobody . Rebecca Lisi (sp?)

...and dont "Read more" unless there is something telling you to do that.
I need to go fix the stupid blogger recommended "Read More" system.

This day in music

http://www.thisdayinmusic.com/index.php

1977, after being with the label for just six days The Sex Pistols were fired from A&M due to pressure from other label artists and its Los Angeles head office. 25,000 copies of ‘God Save The Queen’ were pressed and the band made £75,000 ($127,500) from the deal.

( MMMM. It appears it is not Jonesys Jukebox from 10-2 but Shovels 10-12 show then the Jukebox. That is not a bad thing but that is not what they were really advertising )

Levis personnel to Shovel "Just because you are on the radio doesnt mean you have to dress like that"


Look at the graphic Indie is using; is that Steve or Lou Reed in the 70's

Tuesday, March 13, 2007

I know you will find this hard to believe ..

.. but as a fill in show they are replaying , yet again, the Lydon show.
How about at least an edited 2 hours of the Pistols and Spedding as a treat.

Or just let Jose carry on for a couple more hours trying to be Steve for the time period :-)

Nothing to do with the Jukebox

Years ago when Indie started it was an amazing thing that struck some people deeply and made them find a way to come together and enjoy the music that they liked, or even more loved, over the air in Los Angeles.

That changed . A year ago the station started to change and then shows were shifted about and playlists changed but still a loose knit group of people stayed in touch. I never met any of them, just not my thing to do, let alone had any contact that gained me anything from Indie , some replied too emails but nothing more. On Sunday one of Indies original supporters and staunchest intial listeners passed away. I know nobody at the station knows or cares, as it is a commercial enterprise , but i would just like to make note in passing. Some people who knew cared.
If i felt right enough to pass on the private emails and messages that were generated by this personality i would do so but do not feel comfortable doing that . Trying to control the force of nature that she was... it was definitely an interesting thing to be involved in.

Myspace

Peace and thinking of the kid.
I know himself was a big Damned fan as his mom asked Dicky to play them for his birthday, and Dicky got Rat Scabies to do the dedication, but these lyrics strike a more important chord for me at this time....

The Clash; "Stay Free"

" 'cos years have passed and things have changed
and i move anyway i wanna go
i'll never forget the feeling i got
when i heard that you'd got home
an' i'll never forget the smile on my face
'cos i knew where you would be
an' if you're in the crown tonight
have a drink on me
but go easy...step lightly...stay free"


( reminded of this by Will Swaims leaving from OC weekly. The Clash are never wrong )


Jury of the 5h

  • Mark McGrath ; of T.V's Extra !!
  • Liam Gowing ; no idea , a journalist turns up on a search so lets go with that. (OK. LA City editor for Onion AV Club and other things )
  • Tracey Ullman ; One of a kind
  • Dave French ; No idea either; i thought it said Dawn French; Vicar of Dibley; but apparently not. Ah !! Steve says; Sculptor and "You're the nobody this week"

This is/ was shaping up to be a great one. ( Dawn French and Tracey Ullman would have been great but now .... )
Steve has already said he is driving to Austin, so he must be leaving soon after this show :-)

( Update Monday: Apparently this show was recorded Saturday, so Steve must be on his way , that means Tuesdays show will be a repeat )
Tracey added to this by saying "Dont spoil my Saturday". She had just been told about Freddie of Freddie and the Dreamers death )

NB Why not have Tracey fill in sometime when they are going to play a repeat. Like tomorrow


... and Sir William Connolly is in town as well at least till the 24th .

( p.s. can i just say how much i hate the new blogger. what a pain in the arse )
