Chilly Gonzales

I don't know why all the sudden I feel the need to dedicate a post to Chilly G, but its time. I can't really say enough about this guy. I watched a 30 minute video this winter of him talking about how ringtones were the future and how tv shows will replace movies and I believed every word.

Gonzo is the man (I know all the French and Canadian heads that come here will stand up). I saw him playing a show with Peaches before Elastica at First Avenue way back in the day and I was shook as hell. The whole thing has been way played out since then with no one doing the shit as good as Gonzo and no one ever will. I have some videos to post as well as a decent Wikipedia link explaining exactly what it is he does. The videos are great and another reason why you tube is the best thing to happen to the internet in a long time. I never thought I would get to see this shit. The best part of this post is the live show I have from a WMFU broadcast. Its the shit, seriously and take my word the quality is great. Watch the videos then download the live show, and then go get The Entertainist, you can get it on Amazon for $3.71 right now (or use some creative means).

Live show (its super awesome quality):
WFMU - Scott Williams Show 10/4/00

And I think I should direct some attention to the label that gave a shit about this stuff way back.

Sorry for the sports here all the sudden.

I knew Dusty was a bad manager, but not a snitch...

This was a surprise

But this isn't

Go Vikes. Have a nice weekend everyone.

Oh and don't kill me for throwing some ad space up there. I am trying to get some money together so I can host stuff and not deal with Z-Share and things. If anyone knows of some other painless and semi decent looking ads let me know. I'm not tryin to make any money off any of the visitors here just trying to improve things.
