What up everybody? A man smarter than myself once said "If you will it, it is no dream." Although Theodor Herzl was referring to the creation of the Israeli state, I can't help but think he was also predicting the return of Gerdon and I and KGB.
Theodor Herzl, probably pondering the ramifications of KGB on the world.
Yes, your ears are not deceiving you, KGB is back motherfuckers! What began as the two of us getting drunk and spinning tunes at Hanover has now evolved into a full blown revolution. We are taking this shit international folks as we intend to use this blog to spread our good taste in music. Look for podcasts, reviews, and anything else on our mind musically. We hope all three of you will come back often to check us out or at least berate us with insults.

To get this party started, I want to post a video from You Tube taken from an old PBS show called Sessions at West 54th Street. This is Emmylou Harris and Ryan Adams covering an old Gram Parsons song "Return of the Grievous Angel." Although he died in 1973, GP's music continues to resonate and I suggest you check him out, first with The Byrds and then with The Flying Burrito Brothers (mmmm...burrito, although, dare I say, is the burrito below a disgusting burrito? I would normally think there's no such thing, but look at that thing. I'll let you judge for yourself.)
(Fucker won't embed so you'll have to go there yourself -- believe me it's worth it!)
For those of you who hate videos, I'm including a link to Ryan Adams and Gillian Welch covering Grievous Angel from a 1999 show at the Exit/Inn in Nashvegas Tennessee. This is brought to you from the good people at the Live Music Archive.
(Go ahead, right click and save that sonofabitch. You know you want to.)
Ryan Adams: I double dog dare you to go to his show and request Summer of 69! He loves it when you do that.
Until the next huge embarrassing failure, Happy Thanksgiving everybody.
