The Ladies Gone Wild Tour has just started !

Okay, time for some serious stuff ! The girls have already played at Las Vegas and Hershey. Seems like they rocked like hell ! The setlist is as follows (in disorder) :

Our Lips Are Sealed
We Got The Beat
This Town
Skidmarks On My Heart
Beatnik Beach / Surfing And Spying
How Much More
Fading Fast
Head Over Heels
Mad About You
Lust To Love
Mother's Little Helper
Get Up And Go
Stuck In My Car
Cool Places
Fun With Ropes

Approx. show time : 1h15.

The setlist already divides the fans : some think it's too much of the same as the previous tour. Well I think all that matters is to be able to see them play, right ? ;)

Some Las Vegas videos :





Next stop for our Ladies : Northampton.

Belinda and James Duke Mason interview

The Advocate website published a couple of days ago an interview of Belinda and her son, in which they discuss James' coming-out and related stuff.

I didn't even know Belinda's son was gay, this is the first time I see him and he really seems like an awesome and inspiring man to me. Looking forward to hear more of him !

Beauty And The Beat 30th Anniversary Edition

YAY ! I got the CD and vinyl in my mail today ! Some pictures :

The first CD is, as you all know, the original remastered album. The difference between old and new wasn't very noticable to me until I compaired back to back the same song on both editions. You can hear Gina's drums and Kathy's bass more clearly. Surfing And Spying would have been a welcome addition, as well as any studio outtake. The real treat comes from CD 2, a previously unreleased live show (Metro Club, Boston, 1981-08-20). The sounds is quite metallic sometimes but it's fine, and you can often hear Char sing backups more clearly than ever. It is overall a great show, when the girls performed Vacation for the first time. A piece of history !

Oh and the pink vinyl is so nice ! Just one BIG complaint : no poster ??!

What is your favourite cover ?

Let's hope Vacation and Talk Show get the DeLuxe treatment too soon ;) And why not RTTVOTGG with some 94/95 unreleased demos ?

We Got The Beat (2011-05-24 DWTS season finale)

Right before starting their Ladies Gone Wild Tour, the girls have granted us a great TV performance at the Dancing With The Stars season finale. They seem ready to rock and kick some ass ! Watch and enjoy :

Why posting this when it has already been done everywhere else ? Well as a small bonus, here’s the audio file of the performance. No silly dancers in there ! ;)

List of Jane Wiedlin's studio songs (as a vocalist)

This is an attempt to list every song which has Jane's vocals on it (with the exception of the Go-Go's songs). There are a bunch of Lady Robotika demos and other recent stuff I'm gonna have to add later. My main sources are Discogs, Wikipedia and my ears. But since I've not been able to listen to every single song of this list, I'm not sure about some entries. Feel free to correct any mistake.
