The London Boys [X-Ray XRY2CD 024, 2CD]

The Two Against Nature Tour 2000. Tracks from Wembley Arena [September 9, 2000]; Hammersmith Apollo [September 10, 2000]; Clyde Auditorium, Glasgow [September 6, 2000] and NEC Arena, Birmingham [September 8, 2000]. Very good FM broadcasts.

John L Walters,, reviewing the September 9, 2000 gig at Wembley Arena:

Great gig, but what a shame not to hear What A Shame About Me. It’s the perfect singalong anthem for fans of Steely Dan, since something in it chimes with misfits, jazz-lovers and ill-groomed outsiders everywhere. Apart from just three new numbers (including the sly Cousin Dupree) this was a night for old favourites, including punchy versions of The Boston Rag, My Old School, Black Friday, Kid Charlemagne and Don’t Take Me Alive, all written before straw boss/trumpeter Michael Leonhart was born. [Apart from founders and songwriters Walter Becker and Donald Fagen,] the band also included drummer Ricky Lawson, trombonist Jim Pugh and singers Carolyn Leonhart, Cynthia Calhoun and Victoria Cave providing delicious backing vocals and sharing lead vocals for Dirty Work.

As front man, Fagen has slowly developed from a morose introvert who hated the sound of his own voice to an authoritative bandleader, hunched behind his Rhodes piano like a younger Ray Charles. After Jack Of Speed, Fagen cues the sublimely catchy Hey Nineteen by announcing: “And now for another sordid story.” Populated by human yo-yos, opportunistic seducers, dangerous girls and unreliable narrators, Steely Dan’s lyrics are the stuff of a thousand screenplays.

  2. Much appreciated BigO! Steely Dan pulled off a neat trick when it returned to the road: creating thrilling music while replicating the precise sound of its classic albums. You only wish they could’ve recorded more together after their reunion; although Fagan himself has released albums sounding razor-close to their classic sound. No band ever sounded like them or told their kinds of stories, or ever will.

  3. The time has come to annihilate the Jew. the media the government the economy is being pulled by the puppet strings of the jew. the jew is reprehensible and must be wiped off the face of the earth. we need new Dachaus, buchenwalds, auschwitzs and treblinkas.

  6. That is so true, yawn. Just some kid trying to get a rise out us. Probably another alias for Derrick/HHH. Makes the boy think he has friends who think like he does. Probably got kicked off of every social media platform, even Trump’s.

  7. A question for “Gunther”. When you were a kid, were you always the last one picked?

  8. I love it when all the Jews try to justify their pathetic existence. I would rather discuss wiping out an entire race of vermin than discuss your love for male genitalia. To discuss the methods we used for reaching space by performing so-called experiments on Jews is now being used by NASA. Your country was so quick to grant immunity to all the german scientists.

    By Gunther Strasser on Jan 23, 2023

  9. For all the Jew morons, if not for German scientists, man would never of landed on the moon so soon. We were so far ahead of every country that America couldnt wait to have us reveal all our plans and research for rockets, numbnuts

  25. I have been a visitor to this site for probably 15 years and I’ve been a big fan. But lately I have not been able to access the music. What’s happening? This is the message I’m getting, ” Is this on my end or is it with Bigozine? Except for the rubbish that seems to have taken over the comments, I still enjoy this site. Please respond.

  26. I dont play that das Reisigbündel

    By Gunther Strasser on Jan 25, 2023

  27. NeoNAZI idiots and name stealing perverts are such pathetic creatures. Not worth getting upset with them.Let them wallow in their mud, until they realise what scumbags they are and decide to do their miserable selves in.

    By Θήο on Jan 25, 2023

  28. Θήο, you faceless piece of shit. Shut the fuck up and dropdead you fuckin greek faggot. I rather comment about the racist rhetoric than all the faggot and homo crap. Seems to me you rather read the gay shit and jackoff

    By George Martini on Jan 25, 2023

  29. I condone racism and keeping the white race pure. We need to wipe out bleeding-heart liberals , communists and people like Mark and Yoko Ono. The racists on this site are great and have freedom of speech. If you dont like what they say, dont read it. HHH, Derrick Gunther and DD are true Americans.

    By George Martini on Jan 25, 2023

  30. Tim, it IS on your end. If you examine your end you will see the small balloons of pus that show that you are infected. You have been to the glory hole once too often and now it will drop off.
