Re: Displaced Radical Faeries

Jackie Bigalow ·
There's so much to share, which will come in time, but a quick note on DJ Sammy Jo planting seeds for a Universal harvest-- who knew he was such a skilled gardener: Pickles managed to filter "Edge of Seventeen" through his speakers in the very early morning hours, perhaps precisely one week before The Battle of A Thousand Stevies. That moment still pulses through me as I prepare for Friday night. He and Rob electronically channeled so many of our faerie friends into that party-- we welcomed...

Re: RIP, VIP

Next to Quentin Crisp, one of my favorite New Yorkers was an uptown girl whom I belatedly learned passed on. I was visitng the NYTimes obit section for the first time in many months and discovered Daphne Helman, had passed away this summer very close to if not on Warhol's birthday.) She was listed as a name on the bottom of the page but the link wasn't working. Later that day I was on the Motherboards in the Versailles section and was reminded of the RIP VIP which I've also avoided far too...

Not sure about Le Fleur...but when I first moved here in 96' there was a sleazy hustler bar in that neibourhood called Cats, very much your flavor as I recall Anna. I was there once with a very prim and proper English girlfriend of mine who swore she saw guys rimming in the back of the bar.....

Re: LE TIGRE

Johnny Gato ·
Geeze, it would take a long time just to even mention everything that's right about Le Tigre, and I'm a busy guy. I guess their biggest accomplishment is that they've managed to make their music completely political AND completely fun, which can't be easy since so few others pull it off. Initially I didn't like their second album, "Feminist Sweepstakes" as much as their debut, but it has grown on me. It's less dancy and more headphone.

I adore Le Tigre. I made a few videos for their last tour. They are a hoot to work with. Each one of them has the greatest personality. Kathleen Hanna is such a ruler. She is genius! I can't say enough about her. and of course , she is humble as pie about it. I really admire their vision its so unique. hard to find these days. vive la tigre

i understand that talking about le tigre can be totally overwhelming because everything about them is just so wonderful... so here's a few starters: 1. integrity 2. positive message 3. intense style, varying undertones in different albums 4. talent 5. tude, they've got the at-ti-tude, but from what i understand, this is very much their performance, not real life- good 6. talent again 7. hot hot hot 8. sometimes they let their fans come on stage and sing with them (im not sure if this is a...

yes, double on all of that. and also: 11. pedigree Kathleen's old band was Bikini Kill, of course, similarly amazing to Le Tigre. Sadie Benning made those pixelvision experimental videos as a teen and landed in the Whitney Biennial. I dunno really much biography about the other 2, but I like what they're doing. 12. FUN! Doing really serious work very, very well, yet keeping it sort of light and silly and danceable, which gets more people listening & of course entertains

cowgrrl ·
good point! i think they are an example of positive protesters- their message is spread more widely than others because their music is so fun and danceable... whereas lots of other feminist messages are shot down or put in a box. le tigre is kind of like the radical cheerleaders- intelligent, positive, radical, and fun fun fun!

Zette is interviewed along with others in the current issue of Radar in an article about Area. Years ago I acquired his 12" single, a spooky gothdace version of "Le Freak", I didn't know who he was but I loved the son and I always played it while DJing.

Sarah was great. I guess my experience differs from others in that I read The Heart is Deceitful first, then Sarah. So I got the back story before getting the main story. But for me after reading Heart, Sarah seemed almost like a comedy by comparison. Of course the characters are again reprehensible and really disgusting (the child molester with pictures of little girls all over walls, mumbling about his stepdaughter? yeeesh -- and that atrocious Le Loup!) but the work in general was so much...

Re: Farewell Charming Old New York

It is definitely true the sex possibilities were more varied, seven. Everything, that was "forbidden" in the first place, was lumped together into a very heady mixture that was certainly very libertine. Therefore, in Riverdale, where I grew up there was a park-- Van Cortlandt Park, one of the largest and wildest (terrain-wise) in the City. Along the western side ran Broadway, which at that point was more like a six lane highway than the commercial street we are familiar with downtown. This...

I never went to Le Jardin. (some things actually were before my time) but Chi Chi and I worked with John Addison (the owner of Le Jardin and Xenon) later on. What a character! The music was so happy back then. I was listening to Larry Levan recorded at The Paradise Garage the other day and I was really surprised by how hopeful the music was. Everything was so new that anything seemed possible. (of course being 17 doesn't hurt either) When I go hear "Big Room" DJs now the music seems so dark.

Le Vieux Carré, or French Quarter if you prefer, is still relatively unscathed, though locked down and mostly evacuated. It is actually above sea level, unlike most of NOLA. Some of the borderline streets were flooded like Canal Street (which indeed lived up to its name,) and Saks--not in the FQ at all,. but on Canal also-- is on fire. The FQ stores were heavily looted though, and some bars and restaurants incredibly remained open and serving through yesterday. Now it seems all or most are...
