  1. Last week
  2. Really awesome recording thanks. Actually glad he didn't do a crowd walk during Let's Get It On because its so good ha.
  3. A Boy And His Machine Gun Let's Get It On
  4. i might have some others, will check soon
  5. Chad Bishop filmed this from an amazing spot that night.
  6. I attended the show with PlasticSoldier and was really impressed with this being a festival performance. At these shows I expect the singles/bit hits but how they were put in to the set and surrounded by other non singles was great. The band played for over 90 minutes (went on at 10:30PM), it was overcast, windy and cold but that didn't deter them as they put on a solid set. When you realize this is the first band performance of the year you would expect there to be some rust but it didn't come up. MG may have missed a lyric or two but we're probably all a bit fatigued when coming back from vacation :). MG also removed his shoes during the encore because he got a blister, perhaps the Italian footwear needs a little more break in time. The Beautiful Midnight Revisited tour did exactly what I wanted as I wished to get b-sides in to the main set and with Boy And His Machine Gun and Born to Kill making an appearance I was a happy camper (I also love Future is X-Rated, but it's slightly more common than the others). As Rhu8ar8Pi3 mentioned the Let's Get It On inclusion was a pleasant surprise and I also questioned myself if I heard the opening chords correctly too. I really enjoy how this song was re-recorded and it is a thrill to hear live. Adam_777 will appreciate this...MG referenced playing the ending of In a World Called Catastrophe across a highway. And that was it. He acknowledged the song but didn't play it. Maybe next time. Unless NonPopulus surprised us and attended the show I don't think there will be a multi-source edit of the show so I went ahead and tracked mine out. You can check out a song sample here: https://soundcloud.com/sean-gursky/matthew-good-decades-june-21-2019.
  7. The concert was amazing. The band sound even better with age, if that’s even possible. It looked like they were having a great time on stage. They were smiling a lot at each other, especially Stuart. He must really love what he does. It showed on stage. It was cool to see that. The Beautiful Midnight songs sounded fresh and new, especially Get It On. I had to do a double-take on that song. I thought I never heard or didn’t hear that song in many, many years. Load Me Up sounded like the BM version and Born to Kill sounded a little different to me. I enjoyed hearing those songs. Overall, they sounded great.
  8. I believe I read somewhere that was him aim, though don't quote me on that. For the last so many album since Arrows of Desire he has, almost like clockwork, had fall releases every two years. I would be surprised if this year wasn't the same unless he decides he wants/needs to do more work on the album.
  9. I was just coming on here to see if anyone had posted anything, lol. Thanks, man! Just out of curiosity, did he do the BM version of Load Me Up or the BM Revisited version? And how was the show over all?
  10. Has he said anywhere that this was looking like a fall release? Or is that too early?
  11. I feel I must amend this post: Lights of Endangered Species is probably neck-and-neck w/ Hospital Music in regards to its overall "completeness" as a record. Hard to say which one I'd rank above the other--honestly, it just sorta depends on the day I guess lol... But there's no time like the present, and right now I'd argue LoES is Matthew Good's best work.
  12. I so agree. I love the variety of sounds that MG's albums have provided us, but it sounds like this next record is gonna be one I come back to often.
  13. Very interesting read. Thanks for sharing!
  14. Earlier
  15. Scored amazing tickets to Matt Mays in London. First seats in the mezzanine.
  16. Upcoming I have: 06/21 & 06/22 – Matthew Good, Bif Naked, Big Wreck, The Watchmen @ Beaumont Blues & Roots Festival 07/10 – Headstones, Billy Idol, Blondie, Doug and the Slugs @ Roundup Music Fest 07/12 – Wil, Amanda Marshall, Bryan Adams, Odds @ Oxford Stomp I haven’t seen Wil since he opened up for Matthew Good at Cowboys during the White Light Rock & Roll Revue 2004 tour.

  17. Matt Mays just announced a pretty big tour this fall. Probably going to check it out.
  18. Looking forward to seeing Bif Naked, Big Wreck and Matt Good at the Beaumont Blues & Roots Festival. I love road trips. Hopefully, Matt will share a few stories from his vacation in Italy.
  19. OMG - THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL THE WORK YOU DID TO GET THIS!. I've been hoping to hear this for 20+ years!! Teenage me wanted to hear it so badly when I found out about it in the last 90s. I have goosebumps from the nostalgia of all these videos. Thank you thank you thank you. I love that the t-shirt Matt is wearing in the Sharks of Downtown video is the same one he wore 3-4 years later for the Load Me Up music video! I LOVE The song. It could be recency bias or just the fact I've been so keen on hearing it, but I love how it feels like 3-4 different songs mixed together. THANK YOU!
  20. I know. Getting to hear/see old tracks like that live was mind binding/exploding, lol. Even AMR was pretty damn cool too considering there are no live versions of it online save for the traded version of the one where he adds in lyrics from Giant (before it was released on BM) during the bridge. And while I'd love to take credit for this, Adam, Chad, and Sue Lloyd are the ones who deserve all the credit. Adam for doing all the leg work of contacting Sue and getting the tapes from her for digitization, Chad for hosting them, and Sue of course for finding them and getting them to Adam despite the tapes being so old. I literary had no part in this. With regards to what Matt thinks, obviously none of us are psychic, so we can only speculate unless he eventually sees this thread and chooses to comment, but hopefully considering that this was all published live on TV decades ago with his consent, and that it meant/means a crap load of happiness to more than a few of us, he'll be okay with it. Don't get me wrong, given that he hates a lot of MGB's work on account of his shitty memories with the band, it's completely understandable that he doesn't like looking back on some of their work, but again, this is from waaaay early on (before the infighting really got heavy) and one can only hope that would mean he wouldn't begrudge others from appreciating the performances from an outsider's perspective.
  21. Thanks I missed the original thread. I honestly can't believe I watched Native Son and She's Got A New Disguise played live. Pretty amazing. Those are really awesome clips. Thanks for going to the trouble to digitize them. Is Matt aware they're available? I know he hates looking back at some of the old material so he probably would cringe.
  22. I've been waiting a long time for this. Geoff was about to mail me this footage to digitize but then he sadly passed. It was worth the wait.
  23. I really enjoyed Sharks. I think when your starved for these lost songs, I agree, it’s hard for them to do any wrong ha. But I still thought it was really good. The performance was super inspired too I thought. Those more aggressive Matt vocals always brought me closer to the songs for some reason, though I understand that was causing some vocal issues later on his career. Didn’t know anything about the song Revenge, that would be amazing if ever found. Its a shame demos or alternate tracks from any of the MGB stuff never surfaced. There has to be some outtakes or work in progress versions. What a dream that would be.
  24. uhh wait, where did people hear this?
  25. You know, listening to the end of the Town Pump interview, if one listens closely enough as the interviewer is going into the bar- though perhaps this is just my imagination transferring something I had just listened to- the bass line there almost does sound like the bass line that Geoff plays after the bridge of Sharks from the 2:40-3:12 mark. In fact...I just listened to it again after writing the above sentence and I'm sure it's the same bass line. Compare the bass riff at the 2:40-3:12 section of the Sharks video to the bass line in the background of the Town Pump video at the 5:40-5:51 section (just as the interviewer enters the Town Pump). It's the same bass line which means that it was at the very least played twice live, if not incorporated into their set on a more regular basis during that period. Makes one wonder if there were other unreleased songs from that time period that were played live too. Even though I know he hates the original version of Fearless (which is still beyond me to fathom how anyone could not like that song), I agree that it's encouraging. I would love to hear an acoustic/full band version of his new rendition of that (similar to what OLP did with their I and I at Much back in 2000). Not that I don't like his new stuff as well- I really do- but it's nice to get a mix of everything from an audience's stand point. That's a fair point. I think it's just human nature to appreciate and chase after things that are difficult to attain simply from the standpoint of curiosity. But, again, given the unconventional nature of the song, and the extremely uplifting mood it brings about, I still do think it would be a stand out track regardless (for me anyways). Kind of makes me wish it had made it onto Raygun. Then again if it had I probably wouldn't have been as hysterically thrilled to have finally heard it after all these years this week, lol. And yes, "Revenge". By God...everything about that song (at least from the brief snippets we heard of it posted on Geoff's memorial page) suggested it was a stand out track. To this day the bass line he was playing is one of my favorite bass lines ever. It's so oxymoronically relaxed and yet leading to something explosive at the same time as was evidenced by the intense rhythm guitar Matt was shown to play during the brief shot of the chorus that was recorded. That's not to mention both Ian and Charlie Quintanna doing what looked like some wicked drum work in the studio. Everything about that video- getting to see what it was like for the band to work on it and discuss it's progression- was so cool and appreciated. Who knows, maybe if a concert from that time period ever surfaces we could get lucky and see it performed. I don't think they would have bothered recording it if they hadn't tested it out live before given that in the Sharks interview Matt mentioned they had been playing LOTGA songs live for a year and half before the album was actually released.
