1  General Discussion / News Talk / Re: Dan and the Beam Band ? on: April 16, 2010, 04:05:07 AM
It was really good ... most of the time.

One of the good points was that Daniel played a lot of songs with only 2 instrumentals from the Beam Orchestra alone.

After an introduction played by the orchestra (a derivation of Speeding motorcycle) Daniel played a song with the band (Mind movies or Keep punching joe i think , really cool) and then 4 or 5 song alone with his little guitar.
He begin with Lost in my infinite memory, without the noise on the album i realised that must be one of the saddest song of his career.
After that the all played together (10 or 11 musicians) with Daniel. Daniel had a break during a very bad interpretation of Living life by the band alone and then he came back.
The show ended with Fake Records of r'n'r. Before the first encore with True Love (and another one , can't remember which one). And they came back once again to play the beautiful Try to love.

The music had often a very jazz touch, and they played song like Keep Punching Joe or Desperate Man Blues that are perfect for this big band. Sometimes like on Lost Without a Dime they had a more experimental feeling, this interpretation was really great.
Sometimes the big-hollywood-jazzy touch ruined the song like on Wicked world. And we heard too many clarinet or guitar solo in my opinion.
The best moment of the show a beautiful interpretation of Syrup of Tears with a few words about Mark Linkous by Danny as an introduction.

If you have the chance, go see them. It's very unique.

Sort of playlist without order (and i must forget one or 2 songs):

Wicked world
Lost without a dime
Mind movies
Fake Records of r'n'r
High Horse
Light of Day
Devil Town
True love will find you in the end
Walking the cow
Syrup of tears
Love enchanted
Desperate man blues
Try to love
Hey Joe
Keep punching Joe

DJ alone:
Lost in my infinite memory

Beam orchestra alone:
Speeding motorcycle
Living life

There's some good stuff here: Mind Movies, Tears, Without you, Light of Day, High horses. The production doesn't always fit for sure (like on Lost in my infinite memory) but the songs are good. Daniel's voice is not as good as it was .
I think i like this record better than lost & found but i prefer Fear yourself and Rejected Unknown in his last productions.
5  General Discussion / Fan Forums / song about Daniel on: January 19, 2008, 10:52:47 AM

there's this song by Soko which is really great and touching where they say "I will never love you more than Daniel Johnston himsel, for me he's more than god". It's called "i will never love you more" and you can listen to it here:

there's  also this song from Herman Düne (You stepped on sticky finger) were it talks about Daniel.
Do you know others?
