New "What's in My Bag?" Episode With Singer-Songwriter Linda Thompson

Linda Thompson

If there is such a thing as folk rock royalty, then Linda Thompson deserves a gold throne at the head of the table. Her story definitely has the makings of an episode of VH1's Behind The Music, full of drama, heartbreak and drug addicted co-starsHer circle of friends included many great singer-songwriters who played major roles in the folk rock boom of the '60s and '70s. Such friends include Nick Drake, Sandy Denny, John Martyn, Tim Buckley and, of course, her ex-husband Richard Thompson. During the '70s, Linda and Richard Thompson married and released several albums as a duo for Island Records before taking a three year hiatus to study Sufism. In 1982, they partnered with famed producer Joe Boyd to release Shoot Out The Lights (Hannibal), which critics today hail has one of the greatest folk rock records of all time. (You can watch our "What's In My Bag?" episode with Joe Boyd here.)

Linda ThompsonDespite battling a rare throat condition that hampered Linda's ability to talk and sing (resulting in an eleven year hiatus), Thomspon has released four solo records including 2013's Won't Be Long (Pettifer Sounds). This new album finds her collaborating with her son, singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson, including backing vocals by her daughters (Kami & Muna) and accompaniment from her ex, Richard Thompson. The end result is a cohesive, timeless batch of covers and originals that marks a definite milestone for the singer in her 60s.

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode With Jennifer Herrema & Black Bananas!

Posted by Amoebite, March 19, 2014 12:36pm | Post a Comment

Jennifer Herrema is best known for her role in alternative rock band Royal Trux. From 1987 until their breakup in 2001, Herrema and her then partner/bandmate, Neil Hagerty, broke out of the underground and into rock & roll mainstream.  With 13 official releases (including two on Virgin Records), Royal Trux built a solid foundation for future projects to blossom. Fast forward to 2004, Herrema is pumping out the jams with her band, RTX (Rad Times Express), somewhat a continuation of the previous Royal Trux trend. RTX went on to release three studio albums, and changed their name to Black Bananas on their fourth release, Rad Times Express IV (Drag City, 2012). Subsequently, their fourth release acted as the debut under the Black Bananas name.

Jennifer Herrema and her Black Bananas bandmate Kurt Midness stopped by Amoeba Hollywood for another cool episode of "What's In My Bag?" Some might be surprised to know that Jennifer and Kurt get down with hip hop! They pick up a vinyl copy of Dr. Dre's Chronic 2001 and also grab a copy of 2 Live Crew's Greatest Hits. Those two records alone pack enough bass to blow your speakers! They also dig up a cool copy of the Blade Runner soundtrack on 180 gram vinyl. Check out the full episode to see all of their picks and stay tuned for a new album from Black Bananas scheduled to release in June 2014.

Sky Ferreira

Sky Ferreira recently performed at Amoeba Hollywood in support of Night Time, My Time, and stuck around for a little shopping. She hung out with our camera crew and shared her findings for another awesome episode of What's in My Bag?. Sky starts things off with the 1996 drama, Freeway, telling the story of being a kid and watching a rented VHS copy when her mom wasn't looking! She also picks up Angel Olsen's latest album, Burn Your Fire For No Witness, on vinyl and talks about the classic folk record, Parallelograms, by Linda Perhacs. See which electronica artist Sky is a big fan of and check out the giant sized poster she finds. Very cool stuff!

Danny T

Danny Tamberelli is one of the few child actors to successfully make the transition from pre-teen stardom to adjusted adult. In the '90s, Tamberelli starred on Nickelodeon's hit TV series, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, which dipicted two brothers, both named Pete, who found themselves in unpredictable situations. Tamberelli played "Little Pete," the rebellious younger brother who often insulted people and made brash decisions. The show and character were a hit, turning Tamberelli into a child celebrity who rubbed elbows with future A-listers in the making. 

Tamberelli recently visited Amoeba Hollywood for some record digging. These days, in addition to hosting The Adventures of Danny & Mike podcast Tamberelli is also the bass player and singer in the band Jounce. In our latest "What's In My Bag?" episode, Tamberelli finds some great albums, including classic So Cal punk, soul and rock albums. First off, he digs up a copy of the Angry Samoans' The Unboxed Set. He follows that up with What Makes A Man Start Fires? by the Minutemen. Tamberelli was happy to find a rare vinyl pressing of Brian Eno & David Byrne's My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts to which he says, "I go into a lot of record stores and I ask them if they have this copy and I should have just come here all along."
