THE BOY SCOUTS
THE SCHOOL OF SPONTANEOUS SELECTION
(BE PREPARED VS WING IT)
We weigh the virtues of a well researched and planned show as compared to one done flying by the proverbial seat of the pants. The results prove that both groove for the same but different reasons. Great music is great music. The Prepared hour has a strong singular message. The Spontaneous hour has a shifting thread that is influenced by itself. What?
Our improvised set flies by with the help of Agnes Strange, Flied Egg*, Kaleidoscope, Kak, Five Horse Johnson, The Black Keys, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, George Duke, Schneider TM, Jeff Beck and Ryuichi Sakamoto!
War is the tragedy and the reality of today's conceptually constructed set. We get the needed aid from Ryuichi Sakamoto, Wilco, Gong, Rage Against The Machine, Trans Am, Tones On Tail, Edwin Star, Colosseum 2, Julian Cope, Bob Dylan, Derrick Morgan, Funkadelic and Steel Mill!
