Rocknroll royalty

psl.jpg

Med kort varsel og hurtig billet til Christiania. Grønt, tilvokset, hashlugtende under diset aftenhimmel. En fritvoksende have midt i den stramme by. Et særegent miljø, der ikke minder om noget andet, hverken her eller hvorsomhelst. I de normaliseringstruede omgivelser viste Den Grå Hal sig som det rigtige koncertsted, en passende ramme for Patti Smith, der ligeledes er begavet med selvstændig, fin, hård historie. Det hørtes fra start i et langt set, der sin tilbagelænede facon til trods hurtigt nåede helt ud bagerst i Den Grå Hal’s hangarformede rum. Om det var de nye cover-numre eller hendes egne ældre ny-klassikere betød ingenting; hun sang dem alle helt hjem fra hjertet. Så ja, atter en lysende aften i København med Patti Smith og hendes discipel-trofaste band. Her er hvad vistnok blev serveret for os heldige:

People Have The Power
Kimberley
Changing Of The Guards
Are You Experienced?
Free Money
Within You Without You
Ain’t It Strange
Gimme Shelter
Pushin’ Too Hard
White Rabbit
Because The Night
Pissing In A River
Soul Kitchen
Peaceable Kingdom
Gloria

  1. Klaus Lynggaard har en overstrømmende anmeldelse af Patti Smiths første koncert i dagens udgave af Information.

  2. Py-ha. Troede mine sanser spillede mig et puds.

    ”vinkede farvel til os alle henne fra udgangen”

    Lidt ligesom dengang hun forlod os i ’79 med Wave-pladen og fredsduen?

    ”hi. hi. i was running after you for a long time.
    i i was watching you from. . .
    actually I’ve watched you for a long time.
    i like to watch you when you’re walking
    back and forth on the beach.
    and the way your the way your cloth looks.
    i like i like to see the edges
    -the bottom of it-
    get all wet when you’re walking near the water there.
    it’s real nice to talk to you.
    i didn’t. i-i-i-i-i . . . how are you? how are you?
    (oh albino)
    i saw i saw you from your balcony window
    and you were standing there waving at everybody
    it was really great because there was about
    a billion people there, but when i was waving to you,
    uh, the way your face was, it was so, the way your face was
    it made me feel exactly like we’re
    it’s not that you were just waving to me, but
    that we were we were waving to each other.
    really it was really wonderful
    i really felt happy
    it really made me happy
    and. um. i. i just wanted to thank you
    because
    you
    you really really you made me
    you made me feel good
    and
    oh i, it’s nothing.
    i um. i. well i’m just clumsy.
    yeah.
    no, it’s just a bandaid.
    no, it’s ok.
    oh no, i’m always doing
    something’s always happening to me
    yeah. well. i’ll be seein’ ya.
    goodbye. bye.

    wave thou art pretty.
    wave thou art high
    wave thou are music
    wave thou are white
    (oh albino)
    (oh albino)
    wave thou art high
    (wave thou art pretty)
    wave to the city
    wave
    goodbye.
    goodbye sir.
    goodbye papa.”

  3. Hallucinationer. Lig dem Patti havde iaftes, da hendes sjæl til allersidst forlod den spinkle krop, løftede sig og svævede som på vinger ned gennem Den Grå Hal og vinkede farvel til os alle henne fra udgangen…

    Bortset fra det, så var hendes version af Dylan’s Changing Of The Guards helt fantastisk! Og Soul Kitchen ikke ringere.

  4. Stod der ikke noget om ‘Changing Of The Guards’ og ‘Soul Kitchen’ tidligere i dag? Eller bliver jeg ved med at have hallucinationer?
