COURTNEY BARNETT CONQUERS SNL (AND AMERICA) WITH INCREDIBLE DEBUT PERFORMANCE.

If you haven’t heard of the Australian rock goddess, you have now.

The Australian rocker captured hearts and blew minds with her excellent debut LP, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, and electric live show to boot.

Last night’s season finale of Saturday Night Live marked the first time she was able to perform live for a national audience. And damn, did she deliver the goods with truly kick-ass performance of “Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go To The Party”.

Not trying to be hyperbolic, but it definitely came across as one of the more impressive SNL debuts in recent memory, and will likely be a performance people will revisit about for years to come.

THE STRANGLERS’ 1979 CRICKET MATCH AGAINST THE UK MUSIC PRESS, FEATURING LEMMY AND A BAG OF DRUGS.

On September 16, 1979, the Stranglers held a cricket match to promote their new album The Raven and raise money for Capital Radio’s charity Help A London Child. They assembled a black-clad group of punk and reggae musicians to face a team made up of their usual adversaries and objects of abuse: rock journalists.

Cricket is played by teams of eleven, but the Stranglers were only four. To fill themselves out to the Stranglers XI for the charity match, the band recruited members of Motörhead, the Damned, X-Ray Spex, Flying Lizards, Steel Pulse, and other bands—a lot of people, according to their opponents in the Music Press XI, who claimed they saw a few supernumerary players on the field. Even Eddy Grant was on the massive team of rockers (“as many as 40 […] at any one time,” the NME reported) that assembled at Paddington Recreation Ground on that storied day.
