RZA x Vincent Gallo

This commercial has been around for a while but here is the extended version of the track from the Belvedere Vodka ad I just found floating around the internet. It is the return of Prince Vince.

Where in the world is Sean Lennon?

Apparently Sean Lennon has gone off to the South Pacific to save a damsel in distress which is why he dropped off the music scene these past few months.

Here is a bootleg track from one of two performances Vincent Gallo & Sean Lennon did in 2004. Vincent is palying bass and Sean is playing guitar and Nikolai Haas, Lukas Haas’ younger brother is playing drums and this is his first show ever. Rothko was a great tiny venue in the Lower East Side but was shut down a year ago. Enjoy!

Sébastien Tellier & Fela Kuti

Sébastien Tellier has been likened to the famous Todd Rundgren, with his versatility and abilty to grasp and fuse pop music with extreme virtuosity. He reminds me of Vincent Gallo meets Jon Brion and of course Serge Gainsbourg. Here is the fantastic track that apparently Radiohead ripped off on “Reckoner”. The famous Tony Allen, Fela Kuti’s drummer plays drums on this track as well as on Sébastien Tellier’s album, Politics, he beat Damon Albarn, take that The Good, the Bad and the Queen. Take note of the gorgeous and lush strings that work so well with the drums and bass.

Sébastien Tellier – Sexual Sportswear

Daft Punk used this song in Electroma. It reminds me of King Crimson/Vincent Gallo with the heavy use of mellotron.
