Last Saturday, Robyn Hitchcock performed (1984's) 'I Often Dream Of Trains' album at Symphony Space, along with a couple of tunes from his stunning new album 'Goodnight Oslo' (YepRoc Records, Feb/09). (Tune in to the station and hear the occasional NoFoSo exclusive between now and then). Robyn was brilliantly backed up by "Detective Inspector" Terry Edwards, "Captain" Tim Keegan and (occasionally) fellow cast-mates from Jonathan Demme's 'Rachel Getting Married', Iraqi trumpeter, Amir El Saffar and Syrian vocalist, Gaida Hinnawi. The show was filmed by John Edginton for the Sundance channel/dvd and 2009 will see Robyn on the road starting in the UK (Feb 5th - 19th), with trips to Australia and the US - in April - with the Venus 3 (Peter Buck, Bill Reiflin and Scott McCaughey). There's festivals lined up and talk of another US tour later in the year so one thing you can rely on, there'll be quite a few opportunities to see one of England's deepest and thoroughly see-worthy songwriters.
Last time he was in town, Robyn played
the Manhattan Center with Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello and, after a quick change of shirt, zoomed downtown to the Knitting Factory where the music, poetry and art of Captain Beefheart was being honored by folks like Fast 'n' Bulbous, Alan Vega, Danny Fields and Kurt Loder. Robyn and Beefheart guitar-God/Monster Gary Lucas wrapped up the event performing 'Sure 'Nuff 'N' Yes I Do', 'China Pig' and 'Click Clack'.

The Cure

Many of the films released in the UK were ‘cut’ by the British Board of Film Censors (now the British Board of Film Classification), but until I spent afternoons slumming on 42nd Street - usually with Eric Maché - watching Dyanne Thorne in all her magnificent wonderment in ‘Wanda, the Wicked Warden’ -

- or the latest Italian imports – 'banned in 37 countries' - I had no idea what I’d been missing. Often, the films we did get would have whole scenes hacked out of them but, more to the point, there was a whole mess of films that simply never made it to England. Eric had a friend called Rick Sullivan who published the splatter-film equivalent of punk-rock’s ‘Sniffing Glue’. Called the ‘Gore Gazette, an 8-page xeroxed fanzine would arrive (sporadically) in the mail, alerting subscribers to all the latest films stuffed with NO redeeming qualities, whatsoever. Rick’s writing style was shockingly sociopathic but hysterically funny and when he started a regular Wednesday night film series at The Dive on 29th Street (6 blocks from where I lived), around 50 or so sickos would gather to marvel, laugh and barrack lost classics like ‘Last House On The Left’ or drive-in doozies like ‘2,000 Maniacs’ by splatter pioneer, Herschell Gordon Lewis. I met Dyanne Thorne there when she did a Q&A after a screening of ‘Ilsa, Harem Keeper Of The Oil Sheiks’ and she was a doll…sweet, smart, fun and very easy on the eyes. (These days, if Little Richard’s busy and you need someone to turn you and your partner’s, uh, partnership ‘official’, the right Reverend Dr. Dyanne Maurer will do it for ya, in Vegas, where she lives).
Anyway, in 1985, Fiction Records' boss and producer/manager of The Cure, Chris Parry, called to suggest I got to know Robert Smith a little better. After a string of commercially unsuccessful albums on Passport, A&M and Sire, The Cure had been picked up by Bob Krasnow not long after he took the reigns at Elektra Records. Bob’s son Mitchell had made the initial introduction but there wasn't much of a personal connection there and Chris thought Robert might relate with me. He told me Robert "has this weekend free and is looking for something to do. This might be a good opportunity to foster some record company/artist relations…and, by the way, Robert likes the kind of films that are banned in England"…could I sort something out?
I called Sullivan and he told me he was going away for the weekend but would leave it the capable hands of his g/f Alison and Dive-denizen Lesya K, luscious guitarist from NY psychedelic garage rockers, The Tryfles. I chose ‘The Gore Gore Girls’ and 'Ilsa, She Wolf Of The SS' as our entertainment and Rick arranged for us to take over an Upper East-side bar the following Saturday afternoon. The day arrives, the girls show up and get the the screen and projector ready. Robert, Lol Tolhurst (keys) and Simon Gallup (bass) stroll in and introductions are made. Beers were handed out and soon enough buckets of fake, crimson-saturated blood flowed on the screen. The guys kept themselves to themselves for most of the afternoon but they made all the appropriate exclamations as a stripper got her face deep-fried in a chip-pan and another’s bare butt got beaten to a bloody pulp with a meat tenderizer.

Relations improved (their success helped a lot!) and they invited me to accompany some of the band and their friends to Disneyland after a show in LA once and later I asked Robert to write out the lyrics to one of his songs. He chose 'Let's Go To Bed'...
Another time, my secretary Valerie told me Ita from the Cure’s office had called and asked if I could have a couple of cases of Pabst Blue Ribbon flown over to the UK so Robert could celebrate a birthday, or something. I figured he must have recently watched ‘Blue Velvet’ and was happy to arrange it.
In 1989, Bob Krasnow told me we had to go to England to hear the new Cure album. By now the band were getting pretty big. They’d had a couple of decent sized hits - Close To Me, Just Like Heaven, Hot Hot Hot, Why Can’t I Be You? which, like 'Pretty Vacant', seemed (among other things) to be a great excuse to get the word 'cunt' blaring out of radios everywhere (see video) - and had built a large following, selling out venues like The Greek Theater in Berkeley, Irvine Meadows Amphitheater near LA, Pier 84 in NYC. They were now on the verge of breaking through at mainstream radio. Until then, they’d been heavily supported by college radio and a handful of modern-leaning rock stations, but top 40 and regular rock radio - as consulted by dopes like Lee Abrams - had more or less eluded them..."too weird, too freaky". So Bob and I fly to London and hook up with Mitchell, who was based in Elektra’s UK office. We go to Chris Parry's office on Ivor Place and listen to 'Disintegration'. I loved the record but there was no consensus as to what should be the first single. I asked Chris if they had anything else kicking about for b-sides or extra tracks, knowing that they often over-recorded and usually had spares. He said they had a tune they’d recorded for a movie called Lost Angels, but it was supposed to be exclusive for that soundtrack. I asked him if they’d just let us hear it. I got the impression they wanted to make a little extra money with it elsewhere and this was not on the agenda, but he played ‘Fascination Street’ anyway and as it finished I blurted, “that’s it...it'll set up Lovesong perfectly!”. Chris looked at me like I was crazy and I’d just totally fucked up his plan. But Bob and Mitchell felt it too, and we went into a pitch that resulted in Chris calling Robert to ask him if he’d have a problem putting it on the album. Turns out he didn’t and we went heavy to rock radio with it. It became the group's first #1 in the US (Billboard, Modern Rock) and it got to #46 Billboard Hot 100 without any big push at top 40 radio. That was reserved for ‘Lovesong’ which reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on Billboard's Modern Rock chart).
I still like The Cure. Robert has a great knack for moody yet extremely commercial songs and he's a very underrated guitar player and producer.

Long Island's Scatterbrain were a terrific band Peter Lubin and I picked up for Elektra in 1990 with their 'Here Comes Trouble' album. They could play the ass off practically any band you could name. They also had a great sense of humour, so working/hanging with them was always a blast. Unfortunately, by the time they landed at Elektra, the label's image had become so PC and seriously uptight, few working there had time for a band with the musical chops of the Mothers Of Invention, the heaviness of Metallica, the funk of the Chili Peppers, the humour of the Bonzo Dog Band and the attitude of The Replacements. Somehow good ol' kick-ass rock 'n' roll had become much less desirable to the powers that be. 'Grandma's House Of Babes' didn't really stand a chance against songs about saving the planet or man's inhumanity to man. These photos were taken during the recording of their 2nd album, 'Scamboogery', which featured a vocal cameo from Smokin' Joe Frazier and horns from the extra-tight, and always reliable Urban Blight.

La Chasse

photo courtesy:
http://www.themarqueeclub.net/
La Chasse was a ‘private’ drinking club on the first floor at 100 Wardour St. By the time I became a 'regular' (1972) it was practically on its last legs. It was owned by Jack Barrie, who also ran the Marquee Club, a few doors down the street. The seedy little one-room dive played host to (mainly) music biz luminaries ranging from Charisma Records’ chief and bon vivant, Tony Stratton-Smith to not quite so luminaries like Crackie and (one-eyed) Noj (Van Der Graaf Generator’s intrepid road-crew) with musos like Lee Jackson (formerly of the Nice, then of Jackson Heights), Lindisfarne, Phil Collins (most of the Charisma artists roster, in fact), folks like George Peckham, Bob Hill, John Anthony and other record producers, studio personnel, groupies and all kinds of ligger wrapped in between. In a recent article for the Mail Online, David Bowie said of his song The Bewlay Brothers, “I do believe that we finished the whole thing on that one night. It's likely that I ended up drinking at the Sombrero in Kensington High Street or possibly Wardour Street's crumbling La Chasse. Cool.”
Cited also as the birthplace of Yes (John Anderson met Chris Squire there), it was a short stroll from Trident Studios so, after work if I had any money in my pocket, I’d knock on the door, someone would unlock it and Roger would pour an over-priced Southern Comfort which I’d chase with a beer. I’d watch and listen, nursing those drinks for as long as possible. Talk would invariably be about new records, upcoming tours, untrustworthy managers, road stories, "got any skins?" etc. and later, the place would fill up after the Marquee had closed. When I say “fill up”, if the room had 30 people in it, it would be WAY over-crowded, as it was little more than an average sized living room, which is probably what it once was. And since everybody smoked back then, the atmosphere would be thick and cloying. I went there to feel ‘part of’ a scene (however low-rent), and was under the impression I'd been given a ‘membership’ because I worked at Trident, London's grooviest studio. It took me a while (in my naïveté) to realize Jack had certain designs...on me, so occasionally, I’d spend time trying to fend off his nefarious advances. One night, a nice-looking gal with an indecent figure dropped a fiver on the floor and, in picking it up, made it quite clear she wasn’t wearing any knickers. Even Roger saw it from his side of the bar and nodded to me as if to say, “you’re in there". Turns out he was right, and the resulting experience in a crowded bed-sit in Queensway was splendidly squalid. Alice Cooper’s ‘Under My Wheels’ was always getting played on the jukebox, along with other classic pop & soul hits of the day. I heard a rumor that Keith Moon fell out of the window onto Wardour Street, a floor below, but I don't know if it's true. Maybe it was the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band's 'Legs' Larry Smith. I’m pretty sure I read once that Moony and Viv Stanshall (also from Bonzos) had been drinking at La Chasse the night they roamed the West End, dressed like this:-
