johnny rotten


when i go over yonder
i will see my mother
my father and my sister
oh but my brother is going to hell


well they hung him from the gallows
as the sun turned red from yellow
and the crowd they heard in haunting
and they sighed with much relief


the preacher asked him for any last words
my brother spit onto his clean shirt
and he smiled without redemption
said this is one soul god don't need


well i loved him but i will miss him
as he's burning and he's twisting
for his heartless dedication
to the devil and his creed


for as a child we called him rotten
til he was lonely and forgotten
and he revenged our constant jeering
with his every word and deed


oh yeah he fought my contribution
and the souls lack of retribution
i will ask the lords forgiveness
on my very bended knees


oh it's the tale of johnny rotten
who was lonely and forgotten
and it's the tale of my only brother
and it's the tale of one bad seed.

indigo girls band together from launch.com
http://www.launch.com/features/fs_start/?contentid=4249&contenttype=news&vo=mnwn


(10/19/99, 7 a.m. pdt) - for the song "gone again" on their recently
released album, come on now social, the indigo girls got help from a
couple of the group's songwriting idols. the band's rick danko and garth
hudson (bass and keyboards, respectively) lent their talents to the
recording. with sheryl crow and drummer jerry marotta also appearing on
the track, "gone again" is truly an all-star effort.


one half of the indigo girls, amy ray, tells launch about how they got
danko and hudson to bring a band feel to the track. "we recorded that at
jerry marotta's studio.one of our old drummers. jerry is such a great
drummer and he's very sort-of in the levon [helm, of the band] school of
drumming. so he's perfect for that."


"garth and rick came down and we just did it live, and then i recorded
the vocals again somewhere else, but their vibe is...there's no way to
describe it," ray adds. "it's unbelievable. i love, love, love playing
with them. and i love garth. his storytelling is just incredible and
intellectual and heart-wrenching."


hudson makes a second appearance on the new indigo girls song,
"ozilline." the indigo girls have a few days off before resuming a
tour on oct. 22 at the university of georgia in the band's hometown of
athens.

you guys are truly cool fans...i wonder if they know...so far the number
question seems to be what the hell emily is saying on sister. i will ask.


the rest of the questions have been good but general. so let me be a little
more specific. my idea is to really concentrate on the new album and the
shift in musical directions. i will also focus on what they are going to be
doing in 2000.


if you think of anything you want to know on those topics, please send me the
questions. keep em coming. thanks

subject: [ig-news] beacon review from jamtv


hey folks,


this is a review of one of the beacon shows, from
jamtv (http://www.jamtv.com)...


- -sherlyn


- ---begin forwarded article---
performance: indigo girls


ladies love them. college and high school kids
bond over them. guys earn sensitivity points for
digging them. and when the indigo girls come to
town, even new york city gets a little looser, kinder
and gentler.


taking the stage for the second of a three-night run
at the beacon theatre, indigo girls amy ray and
emily saliers brought out their new band and plenty
of songs from their latest album, come on now
social. opening their set with "go," the girls
brought out joan osborne, who would return
throughout the night to lend her voice and shake her
hips.


the presence of sister joan was in keeping with
come on now social's post-lilith fair vibe, where
jamming with new friends helped keep the music
fresh and flowing. featuring the talents of caroline
dale on cello and multi-instrumentalist carol isaacs
on everything from accordion to djumbek, the band
was there to beautify each song with rich,
emotional shading.


as the years go on, amy looks more and more like
a rock star and emily is looking more and more
like, well, less of a rock star. watch amy's hands
as plays, often moving at twice the speed of her
bandmates', and you'll glimpse what makes her
such an intense performer. their voices still blend
beautifully, emily's smooth like water flowing and
amy's as strong and earthy as wood.


they seemed primed from the start, electric guitars
blaring through "go"'s jarring chords, then switching
over to acoustics for "strange fire"'s call to arms.
audience members, too, were right there in the
moment, taking over the vocals in key spots during
"power of two" and "galileo," as if they had
memorized their parts from 1200 curfews, the
indigo's double live album. new yorkers could
probably learn a thing or two from the band's spirit
of giving. emily took time out during the show to
plug her sister's appearance in a new york city
play. and when they brought out opening act rose
polenzani and sang along to one of her achingly
sweet songs over a lone acoustic guitar and
mandolin, it turned into one of the evenings finest
moments.


"do y'all want to sing the last verse?" emily asked
the crowd during the
everybody-and-their-mother-know's-this-one
anthem, "closer to fine". of course they did. in a
few years, emily and amy won't need to sing any of
the song -- just a count-off will do, and the crowd
will take care of the rest.


during the quieter songs the audience would take
their seats, but a few women standing in the front
couldn't resist standing up to dance, eyes closed in
rapture, as if they were at their own private show.
they could do as they pleased. it was, after all,
girls' night out.


evan schlansky
