Nick Lowe to Release “Best Of” Compilation in March 2009

Nick Lowe to Release “Best Of” Compilation in March 2009

The man who taught us how to be “Cruel To Be Kind” and told us the story of “Half a Boy and Half a Man” — Nick Lowe — will release a new “Best of” Cd according to Yep Roc Records, who is allowing fans to order early.

The CD, Quiet, Please: The New Best of Nick Lowe will feature 49 of his greatest works and comes shortly after last year’s critically-acclaimed album At My Age. There will also be a special DVD issued showcasing videos and a 1007 concert in Belgium.

Lowe’s hybrid new wave/alt country style was as unique as one could get in the 1980s. His biggest U.S. hit was “Cruel To Be Kind” at #12 and much of his later music earned AOR-format radio airplay. He hit the US charts again in 1980 with the band Rockpile and the song “Teacher, Teacher.” “I Knew the Bride (When She Used to Rock and Roll” peaked at #77 in 1985. Below is that song from a 2007 concert:

Men Without Hats to Join Regeneration Tour 2009

Men Without Hats to Join Regeneration Tour 2009

Canadian new wavers Men Without Hats will be one of the headliners of Regeneration Tour 2009 according to the organizers for the month-long event. Ivan Doroschuk’s synth-pop specialists will perform alongside Heaven 17, Wang Chung, ABC and Berlin (who will appear on select tour dates). Go West is no longer listed as a part of the tour as of the time of this post.

from www.canadianbands.com

While Men Without Hats was known outside of Canada mainly for the 1983 mega-hit “The Safety Dance,” the band (which also featured his brothers Stefan and Colin) did score two more hits on Billboard’s U.S. Hot 100 chart: “I Like” (#84) and “Pop Goes the World” (#20). The follow-up album to Rhythm of Youth, Folk of the 80s (Part III) did not see commercial success away from the Great White North, but produced one of the great lost dance tracks of the 80s: “Where Do the Boys Go?” The video was a roller coaster ride featuring a strobe-laden performance by the band and an unlimited supply of Bonhomme snowmen:

One of those Bonhommes was apparently so musically inclined that he was asked to play drums for the Pop Goes the World album, which also had legendary rocker Ian Anderson play his flute for the track “On Tuesday.”

After the release of In the 21st Century, Ivan put together a new sound for Sideways. [amazonify]B00000723U[/amazonify] The 1991 release featured electric guitars over the synth-based sound and included a very interesting cover of the Beatles’ “I An the Walrus.”

In 1997, Ivan released a solo dance music CD and 2003 saw the release of a new Men Without Hats album: “No Hats Beyond this Point.”

We will have to catch up with Ivan Doroschuk in the near future to talk about what he has been working on since the last album. Hopefully, this Regeneration Tour appearance means there could be some new music from the band coming soon.

The Podcast For Our 1/16 Show Is Up

The Podcast For Our 1/16 Show Is Up

The podcast for this week’s Revenge of the 80s Radio show is up and available at the bottom of this post.

The second hour is dedicated to classic alternative dance music with tracks from several artists of the era including Alphaville, Amazulu, Strawberry Switchblade, Blancmange and Depeche Mode.

During the first hour, we showcased a lost classic from the 1980s: “Did You Have To Love Me Like You Did?” by The Coconuts — the ladies who performed with Kid Creole: Cheryl Poirier, Adriana Kaegi and Taryn Hagey. The “Kid” (August Darnell) produced an album for them. Fellow bandsman Coati Mundi also had one around the same time that was not produced by Mr. Creole (thanks to Coconut Adriana Kaegi for the information). The Coconuts EP did not get the radio attention it probably deserved and subsequently, was not a hefty commercial success. The video for “Did You…” interestingly was played repeatedly on HBO’s early-to-mid-80s show Video Jukebox:

The first hour also included tracks from INXS, The Clash and Icicle Works.

The Regeneration Tour 2009 Lineup

The Regeneration Tour 2009 Lineup

After last year’s Regeneration Tour, we took a poll as to who you would like to see in the coming year’s concert series. According to the official Regeneration Tour website, some of you will get your wish.

Berlin came in first among those polled, and Terri Nunn is scheduled to perform on select dates with a new lineup. ABC will be back as well. Rounding out the tour (so far) will be Wang Chung, Go West and Heaven 17 (not the one Ivan Doroschuk was in before forming Men Without Hats; these are the British guys). While locations have not been officially announced, Regeneration Tour 2009 is scheduled to run between June 17 and July 16.

In our Revenge of the 80s Radio poll, Berlin was the top choice followed by Wall of Voodoo, Alphaville, Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark and Missing Persons.

There are some interesting stories to this year’s Regeneration Tour: this is the first year after Martin Fry and ABC first introduced their latest CD, Traffic, which was their first new album in decades. Also, while the Human League was featured in Regeneration Tour 2008, the other side of that band’s historic early 80s split that saw both bands flourish as separate entities, Heaven 17, is one of the acts for the 2009 trip.

Last year’s lineup showcased Naked Eyes, A Flock of Seagulls, Belinda Carlisle, ABC and the Human League. Missing Persons, The Romantics and 10,000 Maniacs also took part on some of the tour dates. Other participants (if any) for the 2009 tour have not been officially announced.

The Podcast For Our 1/9 Show Is Up: Featuring Nikki Corvette on Gorevette and a New Andy Prieboy Single

The Podcast For Our 1/9 Show Is Up: Featuring Nikki Corvette on Gorevette and a New Andy Prieboy Single

The podcast for our 1/9 Revenge of the 80s Radio program is up and available at the bottom of this post. Leading off the second hour is our conversation with legendary Detroit Alt-Rocker Nikki Corvette, who with Amy Gore of the Gore Gore Girls formed Gorevette. This marks the second time Corvette has appeared on Revenge of the 80s; we did a full-length interview with the Detroit Punk Legend in 2008. During this week’s discussion, Nikki talks about:

  • How she and Amy Gore met and later decided to play together
  • Her thoughts on musical creativity and expanding as a performer.
  • Playing in Detroit regularly for the first time in 25 years
  • living as a musician in the Motor City and how that shaped the essence Detroit sound
  • Plans for a new album and tour

Since the band’s formation was announced late last year, I have become a fast fan of their music — a combination of both Corvette’s and Gore’s Detroit punk eras. Before the interview, we aired the Nikki and the Corvettes classic “I Want To Be Your Girlfriend.” Gorevette’s “Baby Let’s Rock” followed the conversation.

Later in the second hour, we played “I Want to Be Your Dog,” an early Iggy and the Stooges track featuring Ron Asheton on guitar. Asheton passed away earlier in the week. We surrounded “Dog” with tracks from The Damned and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who were two of the many bands influenced by Iggy and the Stooges.


The first hour featured new music from Andy Prieboy as part of a series of singles he has been putting out since November 2008. [amazonify]B000TDU38C:right[/amazonify] He discusses his philosophy behind that and other things in his recent appearance on Revenge of the 80s. The song, “Pauper To a King” is a solemn story that laments a man who had nothing, gained everything and lost it all again. While it is clear that the character squandered all of his gains irresponsibly, one can not help but feel sympathy for him after some initial disdain thanks to Prieboy’s empathetic portrayal.

We also played classic tracks from several artists of the era including Altered Images, The Little Girls, Madness and Austraiilan singer Christie Allen.

Tonight’s Revenge of the 80s Radio Show will feature a chat with Nikki Corvette on Gorevette, the new band she formed with Amy Gore of the Gore Gore Girls. Nikki talks about how she and Amy met, how they formed Gorevette, what the band is all about, a 2009 tour and plans for an album.
Gorevette blends Corvette’s classic Detroit punk/rock hybrid sound with Gore’s hard-driving rhythms dominating the Motor City scene today. This unique blend mixes into a new style that has already received raves from fans. The conversation with Nikki Corvette will play in the second hour.

Also in the second hour, we will play some Iggy and the Stooges songs in honor of the passing of their innovative guitarist, Ron Asheton. (Our talk with Nikki Corvette was recorded earlier so we did not get a chance to ask her about Asheton who, with the Stooges, were a major influence on her career.)

The first hour will feature a new single from Andy Prieboy: “Pauper to a King.” Our review can be found here.
We will also play tracks from other artists of the era including Altered Images, INXS, The Damned and Madness.

Iggy Pop and The Stooges’ Statement on Ron Asheton’s Passing

Iggy Pop and The Stooges’ Statement on Ron Asheton’s Passing

Ron Asheton’s Stooges bandmates, Iggy Pop, Scott Asheton, Mike Watt and Steve MacKay posted a statement on Iggy Pop’s official website on his passing:

We are shocked and shaken by the news of Ron’s death. He was a great friend, brother, musician, trooper. Irreplaceable. He will be missed.

For all that knew him behind the façade of Mr Cool & Quirky, he was a kind-hearted, genuine, warm person who always believed that people meant well even if they did not.

As a musician Ron was The Guitar God, idol to follow and inspire others. That is how he will be remembered by people who had a great pleasure to work with him, learn from him and share good and bad times with him.

Iggy, Scott, Steve, Mike and Crew

The above was from the official website for Iggy Pop and the Stooges.

The Stooges’ Ron Asheton Found Dead in His Home

The Stooges’ Ron Asheton Found Dead in His Home

Earlier today, Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton was found dead in his Ann Arbor, Michigan home from what investigators unofficially say might have been a heart attack some days ago.

According to Rolling Stone Magazine, police broke into Asheton’s place after his personal assistant reported not having heard from him for several days. Asheton was 60.

Ron Asheton was an original member of the Stooges from when they were formed in 1967 and was, with the group, set the tone for the new Detroit punk/rock sound of the 70s and 80s — a style that influenced other legendary artists like The Damned, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nikki and the Corvettes and Nirvana. Asheton’s creative riffs will always be remembered by fans and those his axe-handling had inspired.
The Stooges are still waiting to be put in their rightful place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They had been nominated several times and are in contention for the honor of induction this year.

Revenge of the 80s Radio will feature a tribute to Asheton and the Stooges during part of Friday night’s show.
The music world has lost another great innovator. RIP Ron Asheton.

Friday’s Show To Feature a Chat with Nikki Corvette and a new Andy Prieboy Single

Friday’s Show To Feature a Chat with Nikki Corvette and a new Andy Prieboy Single

This week on Revenge of the 80s, I will play a recently-taped conversation with Nikki Corvette on her new band, “Gorevette,” which is a collaborative effort with super girl-rocker Amy Gore of the Gore Gore Girls. We will also feature a new single from the band as well as a new track from Andy Prieboy.

While the band has only released three songs at the time of this post, I have become a fast fan of the band. This is the kind of band the alt-rock world needs: the Detroit punk roots-based style and charm of Corvette coupled with Gore’s high-energy and powerful guitar. Nikki talks with me about her new partner, the rest of the band, music, Detroit rock and plans for Gorevette in 2009.
For more new music from Gorevette, click here for their MySpace page.

A short while ago, I posted a review on Andy Prieboy’s latest singles: “Hearty Drinking Men” and “Pauper to a King.” The latter will premiere on Revenge of the 80s this week. We air live Friday nights 7-9p Eastern US time on Q99.1FM in the Hudson Valley, NY with a webcase available on this website.
