Hey, you lucky denizens of the Big Apple!
On October 14, at the New York Hilton, Bill Nelson will be holding "Nelsonica 06."
He was the driving force, the Trent Reznor, if you will, of Be Bop Deluxe.
That will be his only live show of the year, and he usually trots out some fine Be Bop Deluxe tunes, or so I'm told.
If I hit the Lotto between now and then, I'm going.
OK, so, anyway, Be Bop Deluxe is worth getting to know.
Great band, hard for me to classify - almost a proto Talking Heads thing with their song variety and rhythms.
Totally tasty guitar.
They even have an album with Susan Sarandon on the cover - nekkid!
So, this month's homework assignment is to go find some Be Bop Deluxe music and enjoy.
