Boy George
28th April 2014
The Fillmore, 1805 Geary Blvd.,
Boy George Put on the spot on a TV show and asked the title of his next album, Boy George blurted out This Is What I Do. It wasn't as random as this story suggests, the title was one of a few being mulled over, but the decision was instant and it has stuck.† The simple statement of fact -- This Is What I Do -- is telling and significant because so much has gone on over the years to actually obscure what George does and who he is.† "It's about re-establishing myself musically to say this is what I do. I was at the Brits a couple of years ago and some unexpected people were giving me name checks, like Cee Lo Green and Arcade Fire. It made me think, a lot of people know who I am and have this affection for me but they don't really know why they like me. I had to ask myself, well who and what are you?"† George is famous enough for all of us to have an opinion and think we know who he is. On This Is What I Do we are likely to be confounded. Close your eyes, empty your mind, and as another '80s pop star once said, listen without prejudice. This may be the best record he's ever made. It's the record he's always had the promise to make but only now through life experience has been able to find a direct line to his muse.† In the process he freed his spirit to explore not just his own psyche but the diverse influences that have inspired him over the years -- from dub to rap, Woolwich to Jamaica, glam rock to country, mean streets to sunny uplands.† "I went back to the soul, the essence of what I do. That's been important for me. There have been a few periods over the years where I didn't listen to music. It was almost like the birds stopped singing. I can measure my own wellness by how much I listen to music.† "With this record we were playing lots of stuff in the studio, random things that weren't anything to do with what we were doing, but to get a feeling. We were listening to lots of what I call baggy music, music that is not programmed, slightly out of time, a bit loose, has its own footprint. I do a lot of dance stuff as a DJ and in collaboration with other people and I wanted to step away from that and do something more organic. I know that's clichťd, but that's what I was after." The list of listening ranged from early Bowie and the Stones to Cockney Rebel, Nico and Lou Reed.† "The album was easy to make. There's a lot of love on it, a lot of love, and people I've worked with over the years came and contributed." Just that statement, to those who knew George in his Culture Club days is shocking in itself. Recording sessions were always filled with drama and George hated the studio environment virtually being dragged in to do his vocals and running out as fast as he could.† "Making albums has always been a drama for me, but this was just beautiful and if I do another Culture Club record it has to be fun. It doesn't have to be a headache. We get paid to do what we love. It's such a pleasure to do what we do.† "The album started off with reggae as the template but then it branched out into other things. We didn't want to restrict ourselves because you've got to honour the song, so if a song has a certain type of energy you can't force it into a genre.† "We went back to the '70s, which was the time that shaped me as a musician and a person. The '70s was such a bonkers decade, everything from the Sex Pistols to The Goombay Dance Band. Even though Culture Club were associated so much with the '80s, our roots were in the '70s -- reggae, glam rock, punk rock, disco, electro. I think this record is very '70s."† George has stretched his musical repertoire while retaining his soulfulness and pop sensibility. He's found his inner rock god on "My God," explored country swing on "It's Easy," entered a dream-like altered state on "Any Road," gone sultry and wistful on "Death Of Samantha," and reminded us, and maybe himself, of his playful side on "Nice And Slow."† The exploration of his musical roots mirrors the personal journey of self-discovery he has embarked on since becoming sober in 2008. Another milestone was turning 50 two years ago.† "It was a huge turning point for me. I thought I've got to get my s~~t together, I've got to focus, this is important. I just felt I'd wasted a lot of time. I looked at myself and thought, God, I've done nothing. I know I've done a lot, I've always worked, I've grafted and always made money, but a lot of it was pointless because no one knew what I was doing."† He changed management, got a new DJ agent and set out on the path to show the world the real Boy George, the one who had been obscured in a haze, some of it his own doing, some of it simply the myths that had built up around him.† There is a growing acknowledgement that George is one of those artists whose reputation needs to be reappraised. There has been a steady stream of these over the years. Antony Hegarty paid his tribute to George when they duetted on "You Are My Sister" in 2005. In 2010, Mark Ronson invited George to sing on "Somebody To Love Me." Earlier this year George was a guest of Yoko Ono at the Meltdown festival.† This Is What I Do is set to further enhance that reappraisal and show the world that George is not only back, he's an important artist with an irrepressible zest for life. When you connect your ears will quiver, your soul will shiver and you'll want to dance like Saint Vitus.

Returning to Ultimo with their distinctive contemporary sound, The catholics are simply an exciting and engaging band to experience live.

One of Australia's most distinctive and best-loved contemporary groups, The catholics features many of Sydney's most exciting musicians.†Bandleader and bassist Lloyd Swanton is well known internationally for his work with improvising legends The Necks and has appeared on over 90 albums, many of them ARIA Award winners, including Vince Jones, Wendy Matthews and Bernie McGann.

The catholics feature some of Sydney's elite players, a who's who of the jazz scene, from trombonist James Greening to Sandy Evans, all composers and band leaders themselves.

The catchy blend of pop music, melding with infectious world dance rhythms and indisputably authoritative jazz-ability, has created a rare thing indeed- a sound with an instant appeal, physical excitement, passion, and critical credibility - as demonstrated by The catholics often sold-out gigs, huge fan base, several outstanding recordings and numerous Mo and ARIA Awards.

Treat yourself - come and hear this band.

Duke Dumont at Mezzanine, Thu, Apr 17 9:00p
2014-04-17
Mezzanine, 444 Jessie St.,
with Sleazemore, Richie Panic, MPHD Before 2012 Duke Dumont was known as a ?producer?s producer?. He was the name on a 12? record the DJ knew to reach for when he wanted to please the crowd, without them knowing who had constructed the mesmerising sonic confection they were dancing too. In 2012, two EPs on Tiga?s Turbo Recordings (with whom Duke has had a long standing relationship) changed all that. ?For Club Play Vol. 1 & 2? offered up sweet ecstatic deep house & UK bass cuts that have united people across the spectrum of music, from early club adopters like Annie Mac, Erol Alkan, Diplo, Martyn and Jackmaster to Fearne Cotton on daytime Radio 1, Trevor Nelson on 1xtra and even podcasts by Tiesto and Avicci. On some nights in Duke?s beloved Fabric London, you would hear the anthemic ?The Giver? being played in all three rooms at the same time. Duke?s early career was mentored by Switch (last sighted producing for Beyoncť) and he made his name as the ?go-to? man to remake a pop song for the dance floor (Lily Allen and Bat For Lashes were notable clients). In 2011, he moved out of London to the countryside (Hertfordshire, where his studio overlooks a forest) to focus on his original material. Co-written by teenage wonder-kid MNEK (who recently sung on Rudimental?s ?Spoons? with Syron) the Duke released ?Need U (100%)? on his newly minted Blasť Boys Club label. ?Need U (100%)? features 17 year-old starlet AME on singing duties. With a chunky low-end, funky stabs and silky vocals this is like an early 90s house classic couched in 2013 techno techniques. In 1988 Inner City would have been jealous of this one.

The band features up to seven pieces including banjo, trumpet, saxophone, trombone, accordion, guitaron (Mexican bass), flute, guitars and drums.

In the tradition of artists such as Tom Waits, Calexico and The Pogues, Waiting for Guinness take their nourishment from ‚€˜old music‚€™ and hot-wire the styles of Berlin Cabaret, Mariachi, Vaudeville, Spaghetti Western and Swing-Jazz into their own surreal vision.

In concert, Waiting for Guinness‚€™ spontaneous and anarchic performances are truly engaging. The theatrical element is as strong as ever, harking back to their busking origins. A fan once said ‚€œWFG make old music sound new somehow,‚€ and they may have a point. The band are not traditionalists trying to re-create the past, but write contemporary and original music influenced by the styles they love.†

Equus. There is new excitement in Australia's burgeoning world music patch! The buzz is all about the new band EQUUS, which is the Latin root of the word 'equine'. A gathering of 5 musicians of very diverse musical and cultural backgrounds, Equus' debut album Dakshin Khun (Southern Man) focuses on the traditional music of Mongolia, sung by world renowned Mongolian throat singer Bukhu, fused with Middle Eastern strings and wind and a dynamic rhythm section, with a strong component of improvisation to making each performance a new experience, the result is often hard to define, but always spectacular and unique. Joined by well known Blue Mountains musicians Andy Busutill (sax, middle eastern winds), John Robinson (oud, Turkish Baglama) and Peter Kennard (Percussion), as well as Double bass extraordinaire Bertie McMahon. This music is about meetings, of people and traditions, and of musics. EQUUS is a bold, imaginative music project that succeeds in the formation of an entirely new sound.

These are the traditional songs of Mongolia played as you have never heard them before. Described as "one of the most evocative albums I have heard ...This is pure musical pleasure, exciting, fun and challenging, all at once." Music Forum magazine.†

When you?re in the business as long as he is (20 years and counting), you understandably develop niches and certain trademark sounds that you?re known for. Fair enough. But name one DJ that?s survived and thrived for that long resting on the same sound over and over. Victor Calderone has long earned his bona fides among deejays as a sonic innovator in house, techno and tribal music. His sets draw thousands of people. His mixes listened to all over the world. For Calderone, it boils down to one word that acts as both his brand, mantra and raison d?etre: Evolve. As a 15-year-old in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, Calderone quickly became obsessed with his older brother?s DJ equipment, spending virtually every day on his turntables and every dollar on records. A frequent patron at classic nightspots Funhouse and Paradise Garage, Calderone?s Program Two was signed by Sire Records in 1991 and released one album before an self-imposed extended hiatus from music. In 1996, he returned to the music scene and quickly became one of dance music?s top producers and live deejays, releasing a steady string of original productions and remixes. But now it?s time for the next chapter. ?I feel like I?ve been through a few reincarnations,? he says laughing, from his home studio in Brooklyn. ?Some people only know me for my past work with pop artists or productions I did years ago. I'm still proud of that, but I've always tried, both in the studio and deejaying live, to keep moving forward. I've had a lot of people come up to me after they hear me spin now and go, ?Wow. I did not expect that.?? What they ?didn?t expect? is Calderone?s deft chameleonic ability to weave in, around and between myriad genres while always keeping the crowd energetic and anticipatory for the next record. As Calderone puts it: ?I went from playing these remixes I was doing for Sting and Madonna to playing hard tribal to the more minimal and techno stuff. Techno goes deep in my roots, but I still love house and tribal and being versatile is what makes a unique deejay.? It?s this melding of styles that can be found on Manipulating Waveforms, Calderone?s hour-long podcasts available for free on VictorCalderone.com. Sure, we all know it?s a fool?s errand to try and capture the deejay?s constantly shifting, marathon sets in 60 or so minutes, but each volume does encapsulate the varied sounds Calderone has been spinning for years, moving more like a live set than the traditional compilation album. ?I try not to spend too much time on it, but there is an organic feeling to these mixes that has a flow and isn?t so exact and mechanical,? says the deejay. ?I try to have those peaks and valleys so it has a little bit of a story to it and more of a club feel.? After a long string of successful albums and singles, Calderone established his Evolve brand in 2005 as a way to coalesce his numerous residencies around the world, including Montreal, Tel Aviv, Bulgaria, and a monthly residency at New York?s Pacha. With the Evolve brand now taking off globally, clubgoers have quickly begun to equate the word with joy-inducing, risk-taking sets that shatter musical boundaries and the conventions of what a DJ set ?should? be.

Damian Lazarus
16th May 2014
Monarch, 101 Sixth St., San Francisco
Since the moment he spun his first record, Damian Lazarus's mission has been a clear and urgent one: to blow away the mediocre, the overinflated, the obsolete; to seek out and celebrate the energetic, the important, the new. Always rebelling, always going places, "?and to have fun in the process. Playing around with different styles and ideas is what I do best," Lazarus explains. Driven by an almost childlike curiosity, a vivid imagination and wicked sense of humor, he's used his role as a DJ, label owner and now musician to nurture and share the most exciting and experimental music on the planet. Drawn to the darkness, but buoyed by the light, ever ready to embrace new ideas and different perspectives on music and the dancefloor, Lazarus is always ahead of the curve, with a wry smile on his face and a neat trick up his sleeve, How many DJs do you know who've played 'Reviewing The Situation (from the Oliver! soundtrack, no less) half-speed to a jubilant crowd at DC10 in Ibiza. How many DJs do you know who've received a sitting ovation on the dancefloor? Lazarus was born in London, where he lived until last year, when he relocated to Los Angeles. During childhood, Damian was naturally drawn to classic pop music, and inherited from his grandfather an affection for showtunes which continues to exert itself in the strangest of ways. He spent his teens immersing himself in the sounds of hip-hop, electro, soul and funk, before discovering house, hardcore and jungle at university - sparking a love of twisted, innovative dance music which endures to this day. After working as Music Editor then Assistant Editor at Dazed & Confused, Lazarus joined London Records and in 2001 became head A&R of the City Rockers label. Here he helped sign and release some of the biggest tunes of the era, including Felix Da Housecat's 'Silver Screen Shower Scene' and Tiga & Zyntherius's 'Sunglasses at Night'; his Futurism and Futurism 2 compilations remain the definitive documents of electroclash, not only providing a snapshot of the underground at that crucial moment in time, but mapping its future too. Damian received a major Djing break in 2002 when he was invited to spin at Barcelona's Sonar Festival and by 2003 he had residencies at some of the best club spaces in the world. His tenure at Circo Loco (DC10 Ibiza) has become the stuff of legend and found him consistently breaking boundaries of sound and stamina, freaking out the dancefloor and taking those on it to places they never knew existed, and may never get to again. "I thought a lot about these dj sets when pre-producing the album; especially the idea of placing off and strange melodies within a 4/4 dance music structure. It's amazing what you can achieve when you're into weird stuff", he says. Inspired by the new energy and possibilities in international club culture and music, Lazarus founded Crosstown Rebels in 2003, the label's records offering all kinds of unique and twisted angles on cutting edge electronic music. Recent releases on Rebels from Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler and Riz MC have found the label consistently breaking new ground and the new imprints CDR (a digital only label) and Parkside Rebels (a more leftfield pop label) are set to change the rules once again. A year ago, Damian began Lazpod (http://www.lazpod.com), a monthly excursion into weird and wonderful sound, a radio show that draws influences and inspirations from all corners of the musical spectrum and is delivered in a fun and laid back style. With many thousands of fans across the globe, Damian uses the show to let listeners in a little closer to his experimental and eclectic tastes. "Lazpod is a great entry point for new listeners to my music", he says, "and has been setting off warning signals of what might be coming on my album for some time". A number of popular and critically acclaimed mix CDs have appeared in the last five years, charting Damian's personal development as DJ, listener and supporter of new artists: Rebel Futurism (2004), Rebel Futurism (2005), Bugged out presents Suck My Deck (2005), Get Lost (with Matthew Styles, 2006), The Other Side (2006) and Sci:Fi:Lo:Fi 2: Night of The Dark Machines (2008). Damian's hotly anticipated debut artist album, Smoke The Monster Out, is another expectation-confounding gesture from this restless musical mind. Released via Get Physical, the album boldly steps outside the realm of what one might hear in a Lazarus DJ set. Featuring his own vocals and riding a vast plain of influences - Neil Diamond to Photek, Bjork to Jeff Buckley - Lazarus demonstrates his keen ear and meticulous attention to detail in a collection of heartfelt, grievously honed tracks delivered straight from the soul. It's a sensitive record, a bold record and above all a celebratory record - one which revels in the pure pleasure, healing quality and dream-potential of music. "It took me a while to start producing", he says "but once the juices started to flow I knew immediately that this was to be the best musical project I ever created". A groundbreaking live set to accompany the album has been built from scratch, enhancing different elements and including new club versions of the more introspective album material. Featuring decks, effects (no laptops) and a live visual show, this club tour will debut at the legendary SXSW festival in March 2009, continuing onto Miami WMC with a DJ session at his own Crosstown Rebels party at Electric Pickle, and culminating in a live set for Get Physical's event at the Winter Music Conference. A subsequent live tour featuring onstage collaborations with producers Luke Solomon, Arthur Jeffes and vocalists Taxi Taxi is being developed for later in the year. Damian Lazarus is a believer in giving people something exciting, unusual and idiosyncratic. He lives life to the limit, always rebelling, always moving forward: that's Damian Lazarus.

Mighty Real Presents "the Godfather - Part 1" a Tribute to Frankie Knuckles
10th May 2014
Mighty, 119 Utah St., San Francisco
Saturday, May 10TH, 2014 Mighty Real Presents "The Godfather - Part 1" A tribute to Frankie Knuckles (Defmix) HECTOR Romero (Def Mix / NYC) w/ Mighty Real Resident David Harness (Harlum Muziq) As many of you probably know by now, Frankie Knuckles passed from us on Monday, March 31st, 2014. While he was booked on Saturday, May 10th to play Mighty Real, we have decided to pay homage to this musical giant by dedicating this night to his memory. We'll have special visuals, a shrine where people can write and dedicate their thoughts and prayers, and Hector Romero (Def Mix/NYC) with David Harness will be laying down the tunes "Knuckles style" all night long. A portion of the proceeds will be going to a diabetes charity TBD. The man many call the godfather of house, Frankie Knuckles began DJing in New York in the early '70s while still a teenager, years before the disco boom which proved to be the first flowering of modern dance music. Ten years later he was in Chicago, putting together megamixes of old disco hits with new drum-machine percussion for an appreciative audience at crucial clubs like the Music Box and the Warehouse. Another decade on from those first formative steps for house music, Knuckles was back in his New York home, working as a producer and remixer for the biggest pop stars in the business. His career spans more time than any dance producer and without him, the landscape would be immeasurably different.

You may have heard Penny‚€™s hit single, ‚€œLap It Up‚€ on JJJ way back in 1994. Penny was one-half of the songwriting core of Club Hoy and went on to forge a career of her own after Club Hoy‚€™s untimely demise. She toured extensively as a headliner and as a support to such luminaries as Margaret Urlich, Things of Stone and Wood, Kate Ceberano, Sophie B Hawkins and Wendy Matthews. In 1994, her debut single, ‚€œLap It Up‚€ made it into the JJJ Hottest 100 at a respectable no. 58. Most recently you may have seen her on stage with her sister, comedian Kitty Flanagan. But now after 10 years away from music proper, Penny has been easing back into live shows around the city.

Not Good With Horses are a rollicking country-blues band with a rockabilly edge and a cruisey sweet-voiced girl up front. If you like girl singers and you like your pop acoustic with a little bit of a rootsy bite, come along to this fantastic double bill on Sunday 15th June. You won‚€™t be disappointed.†
