We like BIG sound

Decades later, Neil Young & Crazy Horse still play ear-melting shows.

64908_435481376524384_824321666_nThey will resume their World Tour and ferocious sounds on July 11 in Cologne.

An article by “Someting Else! Reviews” quotes Billy Talbot as saying: ““I don’t use a hearing aid yet,” Talbot  tells KJR in Seattle, laughing. “We’re trying to cosmically join together, kind of like planets in space that have to touch each other, gravity wise, in order for it to work.”

You might think, considering the scorching volume of their shows and the way they huddle together so closely in the middle of the stage, that Neil Young and Crazy Horse are all but deaf. Bassist Billy Talbot clarifies things.

“I don’t use a hearing aid yet,” Talbot  tells KJR in Seattle, laughing. “We’re trying to cosmically join together, kind of like planets in space that have to touch each other, gravity wise, in order for it to work.”

Crazy Horse, since its founding by Talbot, Young, Ralph Molina and Danny Whitten in the late 1960s, has reconnected sporadically over the years. 2012, however, was a signature moment — with Frank “Poncho” Sampedro and Co. issuing not one but two well-received studio efforts.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Patti Smith to Rock The Capitol Theatre

Neil Young & Crazy Horse will perform at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY on September 2. Patti Smith will join them as their supporting act for the show, which will be the one year anniversary celebration for the recently reopened venue. The 1800 capacity Capitol Theatre will also be the smallest place that Neil Young and Crazy Horse have played in recent memory. Tickets to the concert will go on sale this Friday, June 28 at noon ET.
Neil Young will be at The Capitol Theatre just a few days before he and Crazy Horse headline the inaugural Interlocken Festival in Arrington, VA on September 7. That event will also feature performances by Furthur, Widespread Panic, The String Cheese Incident, The Black Crowes, Gov’t Mule, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Jimmy Cliff and many more.

Uncut review: Neil & CH at London

Uncut writes a long and nice review of the London show where RED SUN was played:

Neil Young & Crazy Horse: London O2 Arena, June 17, 2013

by John Mulvey

If, at this late date, you still need proof Neil Young is not a man to be trusted, something akin to that arrives about two and a quarter hours into his show at London’s O2 Arena.

By this point, Young has managed a grand total of 15 songs, mostly in the resilient company of Crazy Horse, and is making his first extended address to the crowd. “Frankly, a lot of times tonight we kinda sucked,” he says. “But, with what we do, that happens.”

One can understand the second part of Young’s statement: controlling such wild and capricious electric music is a necessarily tricky business. But what, bewilderingly, constitutes a non-sucking show for Neil Young? It is hard to recall, from my limited experience, one of his shows that has been simultaneously so ominous, joyful, ambitious and – a real shock, this, considering the unsteady reputation of Crazy Horse – tight. Perhaps a good night for Young resembles the prickly evening he spent in Newcastle last week, enjoying a faintly adversarial relationship with some sections of the crowd? Or the reception accorded “Walk Like A Giant” on Saturday, when substantial portions of the Dublin audience reportedly fed their boos into the song’s cacophonous end section?

London, Red Sun,

“No other band of their stature would take this risk”

~Andy Gill, The Independent

LondonNeil Young & Crazy Horse pull “Red Sun” out of their repertoire of songs to wow a London crowd Monday night.

London’s The Independent writer Andy Gill writes in a concert review that: ‘Neil Young may be his own harshest critic. ‘At times tonight, frankly, we sucked,’ he says at the end of another marathon show with Crazy Horse, his on-off backing band for over four decades. ‘But with what we do, that’s always a possibility.'”

Sometimes, he aptly states, they go beyond the point of no return.

“On ‘Walk Like A Giant’, a song about counter-culture values that closes his last album Psychedelic Pill, the almost subterranean fuzz distortion Young wrings from his Les Paul is the musical equivalent of tectonic plates shifting.”
