Live Ledge #105: Then And Now

It's such an obvious topic, why didn't I do it before? Take a band that has a current (or semi-current) album out, and play a track not only from that record but from another older album. "Then And Now" may have been the easiest show to ever put together! Some of the tracks differ by decades (Bad Brains, Bowie); others by just a couple of years (Biters, Telekinesis), but the concept is the same.
Plus, I babble about a couple of topics, including the exciting news this week from Tommy Stinson. When asked by Melissa Locker about how much he enjoyed recording the tracks for the Songs For Slim EP, he had this to say:

It was so much fun that we talked about doing it again with some original material. In fact, when I get done with this GnR tour, I’m booking a flight to Minneapolis and doing that. Putting some songs down, but not getting stuck on making record — seeing what comes out of it. Neither one of us feels the pressure to become the Replacements again, although we talk about it.

Great news, right? Let's hope it actually works out.
