Leonard Cohen, a punk rocker, noodle soup…and bass players

Monday, October 15th, 2012

So here it is, or will be tonight, the TV show I blogged about last month, a film shot by one celebrated bass player friend – Joseph Pope, ex punk band Angst – in the studio of another celebrated bass player friend – Eric Drew Feldman (Captain Beefheart, PJ Harvey, Frank Black etc), who is in turn married to another bass player friend, Colleen Browne. Bass players, I don’t do this often enough, I know, but I salute you.
We sent the film to Thelma Blitz in New York – Thelma doesn’t play bass so far as I know, but she is a fine woman, a revolutionary soul and, judging by this, a very good film editor – and it’ll be on her Revolting News show on New York public access TV at 10pm EST. You can watch it online too. Here’re the details. Let me know what you think!
