Re-up by request – August 2014
Back in 2000 Neko Case and Her Boyfriends topped the Peel Festive 50 with their track Twist the Knife here’s a bootleg of that performance, the quality is not the best but still it’s a fine listen with tracks from the Furnace Room Lullaby album along with a great selection of covers including the Everly Brothers Bowling Green that appeared on The Virginian album, Bessie Griffin’s Lord Don’t Move the Mountain after which Loose (I assume it’s the same Loose) get a shout out, Aretha Franklin’s Runnin’ Out of Fools and Look for Me (I’ll Be Around) by Ketty Lester
Neko Case – Set Out Running
Neko Case – Bowling Green
Here’s the two tracks that start and end the session, you can get the whole thing Live At BBC Maida Vale.
In this NPR set recorded to promote Neko’s Middle Cyclone album, Ms Case is joined by Kelly Hogan sharing vocal duties and Paul Rigby on guitar, the set showcases three songs from the album including the title track and a great cover of the Harry Nilsson song “Don’t Forget Me” as well as a track taken from Neko’s previous studio album Fox Confessor Brings the Flood, “That Teenage Feeling”
Case and her “strays” — a half-dozen pianos in varying degrees of disrepair that she has collected
