Meltingpod European distributor for the Australian rock music : Know your product !!

Darrel (Blue Tongue Management) I love your sense of taking a risk for promoting your new band Lawless Breed with just « Planet Marseille and Annie » as a name but you won !!! I GOT IT !! Thanks you for the smile which lit my face up seing that package above my mail box this morning…:) I understood your message : you seem to miss Marseille ! I will do my best to spread these albums at the good places.


On the second image, Ed Kuepper faithful to his « Do it yourself » way of life brought and gave me his new Live album himself…self recorded, self produced with his own label Prince Melon Records and self distributed for now !!! (cover photo by Judi Dransfield Kuepper).
For those of you who couldn’t have been present at one of his great shows during his last European tour with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds or couldn’t be present at one of his shows during his next Australian tour (from August 9th to 16th at Sydney, Adelaïde and Melbourne), it’s a good way to have an idea of his new trio Live with Jeffrey Wegener on the drums and Pete Oxley at the bass (called the Kowalski Collective)…all the versions of the old songs are new and there are songs you surely don’t know…order it to Ed himsef to show your support to such an independant and positive attitude !!!
BTW : the interview with Ed recorded at l’Olympia at Paris June 9th, simultaneously translated in French by Eric Tessier from the rock radio show « Place aux fous musique » will be aired on Radio Libertaire 89.4 MHz fm July 25th from 1:00 to 2 :30 pm : !! I will publish that interview on Meltingpod too in August…stay connected !

#84 Rose Tattoo in European tour 2008 : Live Interview with Angry Anderson at Paris

Angry Anderson is my guest in this podcast as I was his guest at The Tatts’ show at Paris June 30th…he wrote to me he was happy to do an interview with me and I was happy to see Rose Tattoo Live again after one year…In fact we had a pretty strange conversation : Was Angry sharing with me a short moment of doubts or did he really announce a break in his musical carreer ? I tried other subjects like his last trip to China, his friendship with the French band Trust, the internet and the music but I was perturbed it’s clear. A few hours later, Angry was superbe of presence on stage like he really gave his last show in France ! The audience answered very enthusiastic, like a triumph at the first song what’s rare in our country.
The best for you is to listen to the podcast I illustrated with some excerpts from the Tatts’ last album Blood Brothers; I chose to finish with a symbolic song : « We can’t be beaten » !!

The Tatts Live at Paris June 30th.

BTW : In the categories of this blog you will find all the reviews and podcasts I published about Rose Tattoo for more than one year ! Enjoy !

I recorded that interview with Buzz in May and we spoke about many things (it was such a long time !!) : from the Aussie Rock Celebration Concert – Unveiling the Statue of Bon Scott 2008, to the Sorry Day, the Jimmy Little Foundation, the arrival of a new government in Australia, the long way to reunite the Angels again, the new release of « Face to face » for the tour, the performances’ concept (we even spoke about Ed Kuepper !!), the ideas to play oversea and…Marseille !!
I played a lot of famous songs excerpts to illustrate this friendly conversation : « I can’t shake it, Waiting for the world, No exit, Out of the blues, Long Line, Marseille !!

Meltingpod Connections
If you want to hear and read my first connection with the Angels, check my first true podcast in March 2005 with Buzz’s first e-mail who reacted on Meltingpod !!! This podcast was in fact just a joke to reply to my friend Michael Butler who lauched the Rock and Roll Geek Show from San Francisco a few months before…who knew at that moment (where I couldn’t say one word in English !!) it could lead me to such a long trip…:)
I ranged in the category section of this blog under « the Angels (aka Angels city) all my reviews or podcasts about or with the Angels’ interviews or songs for more than three years now.
At least and again this nice little video sent by a fan Grant from the Goldcoast in May 2007 with Buzz playing drums but without the sound…:)

Rose Tattoo in European tour and The Angels reunited with Doc Neeson starting their Australian tour TODAY !!!
