A wise oracle once declared “It’s a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll.”
Those words were true when one Ronald Belford “Bon” Scott first uttered them 40 years ago and they’re still true now. Especially if you’re a hard-touring act who criss-crosses the Canadian Shield each year to rock the stages and, occasionally, burrito restaurants across this country.
AUX spoke to seven Canadian musicians about their most pathetic live show performances. If there’s any commonality to the pathetic musical experience, it usually involves some combination of a) long travel, b) an untraditional venue, c) poor to no pay, and/or, d) a shitty to non-existent PA system.
From AUX TV:
On the night of January 18, musician Amber Coffman (best known for her work with the band Dirty Projectors) shared a story of sexual harassment from prominent music publicist Heathcliff Berru of the Los Angeles and New York-based Life or Death PR firm. She said many women had similar “scary stories” and was “tired of sketchy ass dudes and sexual predators getting a pass from their ‘bros.’ Grow a spine and hold your friends accountable.”
Other musicians have since come forward with claims against Berru, including Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino, Tearist’s Yasmine Kittles, and Roxy Lange, who was 21 at the time of her harrowing assault story.
The world rejoiced when Panasonic unveiled the new Technics SL-1200 turntableat the CES convention in Las Vegas earlier this week. Spirits might not be so high at the price revelation of the Grand Class version however.
What Hi-FI? is reporting that the Grand Class SL-1200G will cost $4000 a pop, meaning that if the pricing is consistent in UK currency then buying a pair will set you back over £5000. It looks like Technics are making an entry into the luxury sector of the turntable market.
