The sheer volume, the energy and excitement that hits you  MG 1018 copy
CHAPPO - by Dave Seal - from Nuggets (Birmingham Fanzine) 1980 Everyone can remember the first single or album they bought, It's a landmark in the mist of time. Even more vivid in my memory is the recollection of the first band I ever saw live. Having listened to records for a long time I'd never been subjected to the totally different experience of the visual and aural assault that a live gig brings. The sheer volume, the energy and excitement that hits you for the first time is unforgettable. That memorable occasion was in January 1969 at Sheffield City Hall when Roger Chapman, John Whitney, Rob Townsend, Jim King and Ric Grech known collectively as Family crashed into my brain. The band were at their peak at the time, just prior to "Family Entertainment" which I eagerly snapped up on the day of release. Numbers from that gig and album still stand as classics. "The Weavers Answer", "Observations From A Hill" and "How Hi The Li " are among the greatest British rock songs written for my money. Before their eventual demise I saw Family many more times and until I began going to gigs on a virtually daily basis three years ago they were easily my 'most seen' band. Always at the sharp end of their many line-ups was that crazed master vocalist Roger Chapman, a constant source of fierce energy forever whipping himself, the band and the audience to higher peaks of committment, excitement and total immersion in the music. Despite my devotion to this man and his magic band I somehow managed to miss out on his and Charlie's mature period with Streetwalkers but the news of Chapman's renaissance early this year came as a rush of adrenalin to my jaded British outlook. And, not that it was ever in doubt, his debut solo album, "Chappo ", on the newly formed Acrobat label is as steaming a collection of British produced American feeling rhythm 'n booze as you could wish for. As Roger took a band on the road to promote the record it seemed a good opportunity to check out what he'd been up to for the last couple of years, Streetwalkers had gone out with a whiinper and Roger's view seemed to support that. The band manager, Michael Alfandary seemed to have caused problems, building friction up with an originally very sympathetic record company and generally doing a counter-productuve job. Roger summed up the final split concisely: "There was no friction between the members of the band. The only friction was with the way the band was being run. It just got completely . . . boring, we just felt like we were getting on stage to play act the role. There was no point in doing it". and Charlie? "He felt the same, he'd been more wary of Michaei to start with than me. We just needed to break away after 12 or 13 years. He needed to go one way and I needed to go another. Then all of a sudden it happened. I was left sitting at home. I didn't know anybody at all. I'd never been a great socialiser, knocking around with the 'in-crowd'. I had offers to play and record but after the hassles with Michael it took me time to give anyone my trust again. I didn't want any responsibility for a while. I wanted to have a blow when and if I felt like it. I just wanted to be my own man". What was all this about one company wanting you to be like Leo Sayer? "Like Leo is a great singer but after the first couple of albums they got Richard Perry in - did the business but took away all his good points and made him into a housewives choice. They wanted me to be a polished performer in their way. I don't want to do that. The bread doesn't interest me unless I make it my way. I would sooner have gone skint than do deals with these people". So there Roger wasn't, contractwise, for quite a while. "Then I met David Courtney by fluke. He was producing a pal of mine and I just met him. We got along really well and talked about me recording and how I wanted to keep it all meaty and bouncy. I met Chris Youle (Acrobat maestro) about a year ago at a party and he mentioned he was setting up a record company and to come and see him. Two or three months later, David came up and said Chris was really interested in me doing something. I had trust in Dave by then and Chris's attitude was great for me. He actually wanted me to do an album for his company which did my confidence wonders. After dealing with all the pseudo plastic funk muzoz-no edge, nowhere to go. ... How about doing something like Boz Seaggs". "It's not really me". "Well Boz Seaggs sold 5 million fucking units last year". Oh really, thanks a lot, snore, goodbye". RUBBISH". So Roger and David got into the studios in Septernber last year. "David obviously sussed me out and he took the weight off me. He let me run riot but he knew how to handle it. There was no way I wanted to produce it myself. We went in on the Monday, I'd only met the guitar play

On His Own, Letting His Lyrics Speak for Themselves


Jeff Tweedy can seem like a guy who's been reading Bob Dylan's biography backward. Once he was associated with a stolid American roots classicism, an august, honest kind of rock that just hums along and doesn't need to be explained. Then, with a changed band, he took that idea apart, challenging and amping up the music, causing a stir. Now he appears to be blowing minds alone, with voice and guitar.

This isn't exact chronology. Mr. Tweedy has been doing solo shows, sporadically, since 1997. (There was one other full-fledged solo tour in 2001.) And even in the old days, the original version of his main band, Wilco, could stretch out pretty well on a song. But Mr. Tweedy has gotten so wickedly effective as a solo performer that he could make that his main gig, should he want to. And without belaboring the influence, he has mainlined Bob Dylan - the brusque collision of popular song forms; the rich, imagistic language; the audience-baiting.

Wilco is on break: the fans will have to be temporarily satisfied with a live album ("Kicking Television," which came out this week from Nonesuch). Meanwhile, Mr. Tweedy has been making a new record with a side-project band, Loose Fur, and touring on his own. On Wednesday at the TriBeCa Performing Arts Center, he played a free concert, part of a weeklong series put on by Wall Street Rising, the nonprofit organization promoting the cultural life of the area of Lower Manhattan around the World Trade Center's former site. Introducing the show, the producer of the concert series, Michael Dorf, hit on a perfect malapropism: the organization, he explained, was "using the arts to bring people down."

That's it. Mr. Tweedy is a bringdown, a chronic ebb-tide personality. He might be depressing to watch if he weren't so irritable, and so good. Tetchy at the sound of acceptance, he fought with the audience members who threw it at him, mildly berating song-requesters. (One, yelling for the Wilco song "Radio Cure," was answered by a curt explanation that the easiest way to get him to play a song was to be quiet. The fan then yelled, at the same pitch, "Sorry!" It was an indie-rock moment.)

Running through 22 songs, including a few with Wilco's other guitarist, Nels Cline, on lap acoustic guitar, Mr. Tweedy stayed in tight focus; it helped that the sound was superb. (Mr. Cline opened the show by testing out the room's acoustics with a half-scorching experimental solo guitar set.)

There is no better way than a solo show to appraise Mr. Tweedy's lyrics, which are getting progressively spikier, sharper, more alive to internal rhymes and rhythms, less reliant on sentimental cliche. He showed this not just in image-glutted songs like "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart" ("I am an American aquarium drinker/ I assassin down the avenue") but also even in toss-offs, like a new one written for Loose Fur about Jesus returning as, uh, a crack addict. (The opening line was "He's having supper with the upper management of a new regime.")

Mr. Tweedy's songs, which have chord progressions sometimes reminiscent of those of the Beatles, Memphis soul, rural blues or Dylan - and are sometimes just based on riffs and drones - radiate wariness, a stalemate between desire and self-recrimination. "Someone Else's Song," "Black Eye," "Sunken Treasure": the sound of defeat just kept on coming. His smoky, scraped-out voice did its job in that respect, but he let it be known, with a minimum amount of peacocking, that he is a performer. At climaxes, he pushed that voice high for effect, and though it sounded strained, he hit all the notes in tune.
