Daisy Berkowitz back on chemo and cancelling shows. He said back in october that he was doing fine and the cancer was under control so something went clearly down south since then.

My apologies to everyone concerned; I have to cancel my performance tonight at The Delancey. I restarted full chemo treatment this week and am way too fatigued to get downtown and put on a good show. Sorry. Next time.

 

he's been giving updates (c/w photos) about his condition on his gofundme page (which he started to help cover some of his living expenses)

 

 

He's only been asking for $5000 so he can't had fallen on hard times yet. A friend of mine was diagnosed with stage 3 Multiple myeloma a few years ago. His cancer is now in remission but we had 4 fundraiser concerts and helped raise around $20K to help with his living and medical expenses.

 

 

 

Have you seen the British cartoon strip of our version of Breaking Bad, it's about six frames in which a guy is diagnosed with cancer, starts to worry about paying for treatment and then the doctor explains about the NHS!

 

Yes, I've seen that and shown it to several friends here. My manager's son was taken to hospital a couple of months ago, even though they took x-rays they claimed that it was just a bad sprain on his wrist and thumb. A couple of months later, he was in agony and it turns out he had broken a couple of bones in that area of his hand that didn't grow back correctly. Now they have to break the bones again in his hand and reset them. He is now being hit with a $17K medical bill which insurance will only pay less than half of that, but it's still a hefty amount that he has to pay out.

It's great that newsrooms all round are packed with anal types who bought albums and probably smoked a few big ones to them back in the day.
 

 

The range of stuff you can hear in TV docs etc is amazing. Re-watched a BBC documentary about IK Brunel yesterday (yeah the one for the Greatest Britons series but it's actually rather good) and it had slabs of Pete Namlook and Aphex Twin in it. Someone somewhere was having a laugh, but it actually all works rather well in context, certainly the use of Rhubarb as background for the tragic failure of the SS Great Eastern and Brunel's death.
 
The BBC of course do not have to pay for any music they use, so the aural world is their oyster.

I like the Legend soundtrack.

He made the news headlines on Radio Four this morning. It's great that newsrooms all round are packed with anal types who bought albums and probably smoked a few big ones to them back in the day. Seriously, anyone who nudged the UK charts or once called themselves a cult hero are all provably obitable now. Froese is way better than - say - 20% of Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Titch in this dept. But an obit is an obit, and there may well be points aplenty in future years if we pick popsters.

The best compilation/best of album (whatever) I own, bar none, is The Virgin Years 1974-1978 by TD.  If you don't own it, now would be a good time.  Basically the entire Pheadra/Rubicon/Ricochet/Stratosfear/Cyclone albums combined and complete.  What they did afterward post-Baumann was somewhat forgettable, but by God this 6-year stretch or so was an aural delight.  I was blessed to see them live but not till 1985 or so.  Not like they came to Detroit all the time...

Anyone who doesn't list Froese in their top 5 'Deaths of 2015' will find themselves on my 2016 DP for having a fucking tin ear.
