Saw Richard and Tim in Charlotte at The Chop Shop on July 31st and was blown away by Richard's presence on stage and how tight the entire band sounds. I don't think many who have heard the Furs recently would dispute that they sound better today than ever before. And Richard's smile and pure joy is nothing short of infectious. One regret is that we didn't bring our 11 and 14-year-old children - this set would be a fantastic experience to share forward with the next generation. Hope they keep touring and that we'll have the chance to see them in North Carolina once again. Favorites from the 90+ minute set: Heaven; Love My Way; Heartbreak Beat; The Ghost In You.
Saw the Furs last year in Bristol UK. Simply stunning. Met Richard and his young lady in the city centre prior to the gig. Had a good chat with them. Can't wait for new material.

...I'm not sure why Tucson native and current Devo drummer Jeff Friedl rarely if ever gets mentioned in the local music media. He moved to California years ago and eventually worked/works with A Perfect Circle, Ashes Divide, The Beta Machine, Devo, Carina Round, Filter and Puscifer.
I like the "Wayback Machine" reference, but as a bit of an aficionado of Peabody's Improbable History from the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, I'd like to point out the correct spelling is "WABAC", though it was pronounced as spelled in the article. I believe it was a play on UNIVAC and other hi-tech names from back in the day.
Sherman, set the WABAC machine to Rio de Janeiro, 1968.
Can't wait for this show!
66 years old now..and Nam Vet moniker is just getting glue.....not sure you all get it yet... though.. Big war does not work. Big planes are for big planes. Big bombs are for Raytheon. We can only win with a moral force of honest and decent forms of governing. So far, we are not the best models of behavior. Patriot to the bone, but not a supporter of either dominant party.... We have to come clean about our motives....China does. Saudi Arabia does.. ergo the reason they loan us so much money...irony being....they believe more in the democratic process than we do....if not they would not loan so much money....get it yet?
Tegan and Sara have performed at least twice in Tucson before, in 2007 at the Rialto, and in 2004, when they opened for Melissa Ferrick at Club Congress.
One of the best Shows I ever saw was when Steve played Lupo's in providence in the 80's. He blew me away and I have been a fan since. Great song writer and a great performer.
Great article on Steve Forbert.. He has always been one of my favorite singer/songwriters, and also one of my favorite people. I have known him since our Greenwich Village days, and have had the pleasure of singing with him on 2 songs on Streets of This Town, have shared the stage with him many times, and he also produced my 2nd CD, "Walks with Lions." Thank you so much for capturing this talented, witty, and humble artist. Josie Kuhn
Has anyone actually looked at his criminal record? Unimpressive.
Hi, I knew your dad I was with Will (the native one not Asshole Will). I just wanted to say congrats on all your accomplishments. Gotta check you out at a show sometime but I live in Phoenix so I just gotta keep checking for upcoming shows.
I would woop his ass
Hey I'm proud to see another young Xicano brother make it through life's curves by carving out a productive, positive life for himself!!!!!!!!!!
This article lacks substance and depth. It also lacks proper perspective. If the author has known the subject for over ten years then there would have been no true apprehension about meeting. This piece is not informative, but more celebratory. So what are we celebrating? A bully? Because that's who Isaiah is -Not a tough guy. Mr. 400 bare knuckle brawls. Gimme a break!
Never met toothtaker, though I do know Even at the shop. I aint seen Planet Z Zach in 14 years.. glad to see he is doing well. And Slobby Robby... well... thats all I will say bout that..
Champion Cuffer is the tish.. word up
