This is one of the few acts I've really gotten to know since the drop. I plan on "discovering" more this weekend and going through the lineup like I usually do but just haven't had time. Hope this set doesn't conflict with anyone I want to see. Looking forward to his Roo set as my first FJM show.
As always, guys who talk about their prowess in such regards generally have none whatsoever.
People who suck in bed always say that, but the contrary evidence is staggering.
Hemingway: "Where there had been roughness of fabric all was smooth with a smoothness and firm rounded pressing and a long warm coolness, cool outside and warm within, long and light and closely holding, closely held, lonely, hollow-making with contours, happy-making, young and loving and now all warmly smooth with a hollowing, chest-aching, tight-held loneliness..."
^ With Lauren Bacall
Dylan: "Saddle me up my big white goose. Tie me on ’er and turn her loose. Oh me, oh my. Love that country pie."
^ That's a Playboy bunny, by the way.
And of course, Tommy Lee: "I’m such a good good boy. I just need a new toy. I tell ya what, girl, dance for me - I'll keep you overemployed."
Radiohead, prince, muse, chili peppers, etc...and they are lucky if they get 1 mill, but they normally only get 500 k
then you have third tier : snoop, dre, J z...they get 100 k
then you have 4th tier : black keys, munford byoncee, Prince etcc: they get 50k
So, I'm only about 80% sure this is the Father John Misty thread, but if you've made the same mistake I have then you might like his World Cafe set. I love the album, but from all the recordings I can find, he's just amazing live.
I read somewhere that Robin is a sober individual whereas, clearly, J. Tillman is not. Those Fleet Foxes tours must have been... interesting.
The Fleet Foxes live were fan-quacking-tastic. I saw them in their first month of touring, and although you could already tell that the guy behind the drums (J Tillman/Father John) had an awesome presence, the group gelled incredibly well. They didn't sex it up at all - maybe that's what the piece you read meant - but their cohesive dream-folk was one of the best shows I've ever seen. Robin (whose unmiked solo encore was terrific) and J Tillman certainly have different personalities, but such disparities are what take these types of groups to a new level, a la Richard Manuel, Joe Walsh, and Dennis Wilson.
Actually I meant that Robin doesn't drink alcohol or use drukqs whereas J Tillman clearly enjoys a cold one here and there. When I first saw Josh in interviews and heard the Father John Misty album I couldn't help but think their different opinions on the matter could've lead to some awkward times back stage.
I don't doubt whatsoever that Fleet Foxes were incredible live though. Everyone involved is super talented and they probably wouldn't have made it this far if it had been a huge issue.
