A long night’s journey in the Restoration
Mosey (New West Records). Review by James Mann.
A two-DVD set featuring two documentaries about U2, one focusing on an analysis of the album Achtung Baby and the other on the band’s first two albums of the 2000s.
Acolytes David Bowie and Jarvis Cocker may have a vested interest in maintaining the Walker mythos, but No Regrets is under no such obligation.
There’s only one man whose swagger can quiet a crowd of 600,000 people on the cusp of rioting. His name is Leonard Cohen, and once again the poet/musician surfaces from images of the past.
Too young to be fully cognizant of the more embarrassing excesses of Gothic music over the past twenty years, the young Turks of NYC’s own Blacklist are, perhaps unwittingly, the best hope of redeeming Goth-metal. Fresh from a European tour complete with horned hotel antics, Blacklist frontman and provocateur Josh Strawn told Ink 19 all about how he learned to stop worrying and love Motorhead and Scott Walker equally.
Matthew Moyer finds himself in the same concert hall as Leonard Cohen, holy clown, dour prophet, borscht belt crooner, and true legend — in Tampa, Florida, no less.
