22/10/07 A Meltingweekend with the Bon Scott Celebration Concert’ CD’s launch at Perth, Rose Tattoo Australian tour’s last show at Brisbane and…Godard at Marseille !!Lundi, octobre 22nd, 2007
pics from Clair at Perth (Dave Evans and Randell Waller; Rick and John Brewster; The Party Boys with Kevin Borich, John Brewster, Buzz Bidstrup and Alan Lancaster; Clair and Buzz) Grant at Brisbane (Angry Anderson and Paul DeMarco; Mick Cocks) and some Godard’s fans on the internet (Jean-Luc Godard portrait; pics from his movies : Pierrot le Fou and le Mépris).
My friends, Clair who had the luck to go to the Bon Scott Celebration Concert’s Cd’s launch at Perth October 19th and Grant who was enough lucky on his side to see Rose Tattoo at the Hard Rock Cafe at Brisbane October 20th, shared instantly with me the pics from their show (Thanks Clair to offer me this cool pic with Buzz !! toooo cute !!)…
What could I do on my side at Marseille Sunday 21th to forget the frustration ?…to answer positively to a friend of mine FamFinale de la Matière who proposed to me to go to the theater La Minoterie (my second home a few years ago I was very happy to see again) and watch…a rarity from Jean-Luc Godard my favorite French films maker !! a giant movie 5 hours long !!! which is modestly called : History (ies) of the Cinema !!!
What a fun to share with around 100 hards fans this incredible kaleidoscope : a true artistic and political manifesto…very Frenchy but hey ! Godard’s world is a part of my own selective memory : Wenders, Fellini, Bunuel, Cassavettes, Picasso, Gauguin, Baudelaire, Oscar Wilde, Leo Ferré…we were literaly bombed during 5 hours with somptuous pictures and brilliant words…not sure that someone will find the courage to adapt this movie in English one day but it will be interesting to share this treasure with the world too.
Back home I had this idea to show you in this quick Meltingpics my own kaleidoscope of the week end, from Australia to Marseille !! Enjoy !
Grant sent me also a spontaneous review from his show with the Tatts :… (more…)
