dark carnival

sure, RON was never really ever in a good band besides the stooges, but this is some of the best vid i've found of his playing from the lick-stealing standpoint. when i saw him with mascis and watt at sxsw, i shot an entahr roll of film of him playing over a bin at tower records, and realized that everything he played was done in the simplest way possible. less _is_ more.

More ballsy post-Stooges output than Iggy's, as a whole.

Never in a good band? Stooges were, at worst great and DAM and Dark Carnival never less than very good. The Dark Carnival line-up that came to Australia was consummately professional. Ron was the guitar attraction but Greasy Carlisi was the glue, IMHO.

OK, good. When I saw the "Dark Carnival" post title on my blog, I feared it was something Insane Clown Posse-related. Yeesh.
