Jean-baptiste Mondino: Guitar Eros

Mondino presents his guitar photographs created over the past twenty years as commissioned works or his own projects. They portray famous rock and pop musicians such as Mick Jagger, Madonna, Tom Waits, and Keith Richards; models and celebrities with guitars; and numerous anonymous guitar players. Central subject and the undisputed star of each picture, however, is the guitar itself.

Some of us couldn't make it to the Tom Waits "Glitter and Doom" tour, when I say some of us, I guess I mean most of us, Tom Waits doesn't play arenas, and so most of us missed out, Ok, when I say most of us, I really mean me, I missed out. But ok, ok, I'll get over it. I mean after all there is this recording here, taken from 17 sold out performances--say how do you get a ticket to a sold out performance anyway? Seems like some concerts sell out before the tickets go on sale, maybe I can buy a advance ticket to his next thing, you know, buy it before he's even thinking of going on tour, yeah, yeah, Hmmm...

  • People either love or hate Tom Waits. Maybe it has to do with the fact that he sounds like he gargles shards glass every morning. This song is amazing.

Maybe it has to do with the fact that he sounds like he gargles shards glass every morning. This song is amazing. The contrast of his signature gravelly voice combined with this touching song is a perfect match.

I only recently discovered this guy in my effort to find more Halloween music and he has quickly become one of my favorite recording artists. Havanna born Voltaire (if that IS his real name...) makes dinner music for the Addams family... His musical style is unique, with salsa rythms, surfrock/psychobilly drums and guitar and gypsy caberet violins... think Danny Elfman, Tom Waits and Cab Calloway if they all got together to jam. The song topics run the range of typical 50's horror movie fair: zombies, devils, vampires but all interpreted with a modern wicked sense of humor...dark as pitch humor that makes "evil" fun... this is music for any occassion as long as such occassion may end in a plan to injure puppies and dig up corpses.

  • A bluesy tune about redemption and resisting the devil. This was the song featured on the opening credits of The Wire. Can't remember which season.

I fell in love with Scarlett in Lost in Translation -- who didn't? That relatable, vulnerable, raspy and amazing Scarlett sounds exactly like you would imagine, though a little less sweet-sounding than her character's Brass in Pocket from the movie. Her voice is amazing, and for people who also love Tom Waits as much as I do, I think this will be a treat.

Green Rocky Road is as close as we’ll ever get to hearing the record Karen Dalton would have made in 1963. Discovered on the same reel-to-reel tapes that yielded the live performances comprising the Cotton Eyed Joe release, were nine home recordings of Dalton left alone, with no one watching, no audience to please. Accompanied solely by her own sturdy banjo picking and 12 string strumming, her deep blue, smoky-throated singing evokes the voices and faces of past lives lived – the broken-backed pioneer, the coalminer black with shadow, the stained fingers of the slave, the prostitute…the dead and forgotten. Karen was perhaps the last true folk singer and that’s the bases of the potent appeal of her enigmatic art and of her commercial failure during her too-brief lifetime.

They proved that all you need is three chords and crazy energy to make some great music. A huge array of artists turn in their takes on classic Ramones songs for this compilation. From U2 (who I'm sad to say have a pretty mediocre track) to Rancid, Pete Yorn to Tom Waits, Garbage to Marilyn Manson.

When the sticker on the CD is a quote from Tom Waits saying that listening to this album is a bit like running through a forest, you kinda have to get it just to find out what in the heck that means! I'm still not sure, but I do know that it's a really great little record. Intelligentactile 101 is my favorite track. Popy and freaking weird.

I'm one of those music addicts that refuses to listen to Broadway Musicals written after 1979, yet I'm a fan of Broadway 'like' composers such as David Bowie, Kate Bush, Nina Hagen, and so on. At some point the music of Weill and Brecht and Eisler was introduced to me through the iconic voice of Dagmar Krause. "Tank Battles: Songs of Hanns Eisler" contains many of Eisler's strongest works, and I'm happy for the english versions contained in TB as the lyrics play a massive role in not only the understanding of Eisler's narratives, but also as a entrance into the vocal performance which Dagmar Krause gives so richly.
