It was early and it sounded good as I walked by after the Talk at The Living Theatre ended. Another great rock band with Dee. There was an upright bass this time, along with Don Fiorino on strings, Austen Ivan Julian on guitar, and Dee. Daniel Carter is always a treat. I stuck around for an hour, maybe less and enjoyed it thoroughly.
From Dee's Listing:
Dee Pop's Private World will perform at Local 269.
The group is led by drummer Dee Pop. Dee Pop's broad approach to music has led him to an impressive range of musical associations. During his thirty-plus year career, he has played/and or recorded with Bush Tetras, Jeffrey Lee Pierce and the Gun Club, Richard LLoyd, Jayne/Wayne County, Lenny Kaye, Radio I-Ching, Marc Ribot, William Parker, Roy Campbell, The Shams (Sue Garner & Amy Rigby), James Chance, Michael Karoli of Can, Deerfrance, The Washington Squares, John Spencer, Eddie Gale, The Clash, Andy Shernoff, Handsome Dick Manitoba, Wayne Kramer, Odetta, Bobby Radcliff, John Sinclair, Nona Hendryx, Band of Outsiders, Gary Lucas, Hanuman Sextet, Freedomland, Matt Verteray, Freddie Pompeii, Slits, Darlene Love, Patti Palladin, Billy Bang, Borah Bergman, The Waldos, Jahn Xavier and Felice Rosser.
Don Fiorino is perhaps one of the most underrated string musicians in the NYC area. Whether on the guitar, the banjo, mandolin, steel guitar, sitar or bouzouki, Don can twist just about any traditional genre into new worlds unto themselves.
Volumes have been written about the great sax, trumpet, clarinet and flautist Daniel Carter. Most important to me was that Daniel was the first musician to physically allow me to meld seemingly contrary styles of music and derive whole new languages that really keep up with the speed of today's advancements in communication.
Chris Jones can hang ten while still honoring the rules of bop.
Youngest member guitarist Austen Ivan Julian brings hope that importance of history and the need to invent and move forward are both equally essential.
Admission is free. Dancing/body movement would be an honor.
