Brian Jonestown Massacre + Nick Waterhouse + Mustang @ Live Me Do , France Inter, Paris April 09 2014

 Nick Waterhouse

Recording @ Radio France for "Live Me Do" with dj Valli, it will be broadcasted on saturday from 8:00pm to 9:00pm.

Almost the first one to get in, good it's gonna be first row or the second... Shit ! No ! as I'm making my way into the 200+ capacity studio I can see that almost all the seats are taken by 12 years old kids  ! Where are they coming from ? and why ?
Lots of people were queuing outside and I'm pretty sure only half of them could make it inside.

Nick Waterhouse and his 8 musicians are starting the radio show with 2-3 r&b- jazz-soul songs. Nice songs, Nick looks like a good mama's boy ( nice hair cut, glasses, beautiful shoes, white shirt ), he's answering questions very politely but it's lacking a bit of "soul", very nice tough but too polish.
 Mustang

Then we have french 60's vintage rock band Mustang, singing in French (well...) but with funny lyrics about girls which had the kids in the audience laugh. Their parents are probably telling them NOT to use some words and they are hearing "Bitches" & "sluts" live on the radio...
Last song is an Elvis' over (in English)
Brian Jonestown Massacre feat. Anton Newcombe

 Last but not least we have the BJM or Anton Newcombe and a friend on acoustic guitars, I guess it was too expensive to travel with 7 musicians for the promotional duties.So he's on his own ( with a little help from a friend) for 3 Folk songs.
He gain a bit of weight but he's very relaxed, it seems that he's now drug/booze free and living in Berlin-Germany with his wife and newborn kid. A pleasure to hear him singing and playing and answering questions from Valli, thanking technicians for their hard work. Even Anton is becoming a good boy
