the 5th Bangle
Quote:We've talked about doing more acoustic performances--maybe even adding a full-on acoustic section to the live show. We really love singing and sometimes it's fun when we're not trying to be heard over our amps and drums.

Quote:Thank you so much...The Drifters will always be an important part of my life and i've got this feeling that we'll be playing together when we're 90. In the meantime, however, it's time for some concentrated Bangling.
Quote:Thanks, John. i actually KNOW some people in Omaha! i hope we get out there, too. Stay warm...
Quote:JASON PANIC!!!! How the heck are ya?? (Debbi's gonna love this) You guys rocked! Amanda and i have been looking at old Panics photos lately for our Early Bangle History book...Hope you are well. Lots of love...

here comes trouble
Going Down To Liverpool
Quote:Hey ladeeze--Okay, first question first. It IS a special thing to work with a family member. You have years and years of history together before you even start playing music. In our family, music--especially pop radio--was omnipresent and the kids singing in the back of the Buick station wagon was enough to drive our parents nutty. But it was obvious to me pretty early on that Debbi had an enormous amount of musical talent. She could play just about anything she set her mind to. So, the BEST part of playing with your sister is being able to feel this sense of pride. i've been especially proud of her work on the new CD. She absolutely ROCKED! The WORST part? Uh..............taking your sibling for granted. We all do it, and it's unfair.
Quote:i've been listening to several things lately. Everything from Avril Lavigne and Eminem to my friend Kim Ritchey's new CD and the re-issue of "Neurotica" by Redd Kross (because it was one of my faves, not just because of the bonus track that I"M on!!!)
Quote:We recorded 15 and couldn't bring ourselves to cut any of them off, so all 15 will be on the US release. There ARE some interesting B-sides, though. You may have to track down a Euro or Japanese version to get a re-mastered copy of "Getting Out of Hand" (our very first recorded song) and some rare acoustic versions of Bangle classics...
Quote:i absolutely love it when someone tells me that they've followed their own dream because they saw us achieve ours. i especially like hearing this from young female musicians and writers. i don't worry too much about the people who dismiss us as a "girl group". i know how much work we've done and what we write and no one can take that away from us.
Quote:Thank you so much!

Quote:PLEASE don't give up on a psycho CD...i really want it to happen, but lives can get very busy. Singing with Susan Cowsill is a natural joy for me and we both do it whenever we're in the same city. She's working on a solo CD which should be reallty lovely....
Quote:i tend to write while doing other things---i don't know, it just frees up that part of my mind. Driving is good--i've written alot of songs while driving from Los Angeles to New Orleans. Sometimes the songs just SHOW UP (we love it when that happens...) and sometimes it's just as you'd imagine: suffering over a not-so-hot guitar and praying desperately that an idea will come...
Quote:We're working on our Euro tour now--and yup, it looks like we're coming through Cologne! See you there?
Quote:That's a good question...i guess that i've reconciled myself to most of our past work, recognizing it as good stuff...even if i don't feel as close to it as i might like. i don't know that you can take a piece of music out of context, you know? It was a part of its time and our growth...i like the artwork, does that count?
Quote:Hello, Sweet Sarah. i hope that Pere Noel is very good to you...
Quote:Gosh, i don't even remember...
Quote:I've heard alot about a band from Sweden who's all-women, have you heard them? i like some of the young singers like Michele Branch and Avril Levigne, Norah Jones...i always like it better when an artist is involved with writing her own music...
Quote:Thanks! i'm having a great time so far, and i hope we get to your part of the world in the Spring...
Quote:i loved co-producing. Brad Wood is an excellent collaborator, but keeping a hand on the reins allowed us Bangles to take responsibility for alot of what you hear on the CD. And, yeah, there were lots of hilarious, delirious moments...The very first thing you hear on the CD is a result of Brad rolling tape while he and i were goofing around with the concept of an "Elocution Revolution..." Okay, i know that's an injoke, but that's how it goes...
Quote:i played all of the lead breaks--and some mandolin for the first time! But Debbi, Michael and Susanna all played some guitar on this CD, including some lead lines---very fun!
Quote:No, not yet...i've been thinking about it, though...we'll see!
Quote:We wrote that in a Holiday Inn in Oxford, Mississippi. We'd been talking about what you can and cannot control in life...

Quote:Hola Las Margaritas! You guys rock. And yes, the neck pillows are making quite a splash in Hollywood as Aura Warmers (one places them atop one's head to shield one's aura from damaging rays...) Guitars? The pink tele. The Gretsch Tennessee Rose. The ever-present Les Paul. AND i played them all through The Wookie, an ancient Fender you will see in the NEW BANGLES VIDEO!!!!!
Quote:Love 'em all. (But you knew i was gonna say that...)
Quote:Whew! Hope you get a nap later!
Quote:We're still working all of that out, but would LOVE to get to Australia (finally!)
Quote:If i had to be in a tribute band for the rest of my career??? i'd start a new career!!! But i think i'd have the most fun playing Gram Parsons/Emmylou Harris songs...or if it couldn't be that maybe the KINKS?

Quote:No, but David Hasselhoff did a gnarly tenor sax solo...
Quote:You forgot the Cowsills...
Quote:Hopefully not by my zits...
Quote:Surely, you don't expect us to really believe that, now do you?
Quote:Virtual hugs are accepted here.
Quote:And a Crimble to you, sir. See you soon.

Quote:That whole thing about me and Sir Paul Mc Cartney was blown WAAAAAY out of proportion...
Quote:i just wish that there was more music and less industry...
Quote:i still love my Les Paul Custom, but also my Gretsch...
Quote:Sometime around then...
Quote:We do love that song--even Susanna, who doesn't celebrate Christmas...she always wants to do Silent Night in harmony!
Quote:i have TWO cats and one blind, sweet dog.
