New Rose Stories, extra CD



Une salle remplie (plein de têtes connues évidemment) pour une affiche digne de l'occasion, une vraie réussite :

Pour commencer, Brian James, accompagné des Saints, a bien sûr ouvert le set avec le titre "New Rose", 2 tracks issued on New Rose recs, et "TV Eye" des Stooges.

Elliott Murphy, en set acoustique, avec juste un percussioniste et un guitariste, hymnes au chansons d'amour ("c'est pour cette raison que New Rose était un grand label") et une reprise à la mémoire de Johnny Thunders.

Calvin Russell, en duo avec le violoniste-bluesman Jean-Louis Majhun, pour une association vraiment réussie, a commencé avec Crossroads, tiré de son dernier disque (Last Call), et des remerciements à New Rose en nom de différents états des US, et même de tous les USA.

Alex Chilton - monsieur Alex Chilton - royal, accompagné du bassiste et du batteur des Saints, a joué notemment "No Sex"

Et enfin les
Saints, avec un Chris Bailey vraiment très en forme, et Patrick Mathé à l'harmonica, enchaînant des titres des Saints, "Casablanca" et un vieux blues.

Et en final, à nouveau le titre "New Rose" avec les Saints, Brian James, Alex Chilton, Jean-Louis Majhun, et Patrick Mathé.

The concert has been recorded. A live album will be released (on Last Call) for spring 2001, with every artist present that night.
Come back later for further news.
