The Revolution Will Be Archived

I’m not a huge fan of Prince or his Revolution but I know there are readers here who are. So I wanted to point you out to a great post by Pete over at ickmusic, which includes a download of Prince And The Revolution’s last live show. Pete says,

“So the last official gig with this [original] lineup took place on September 9th, 1986 in Yokohama, Japan. It was the last show of the Parade tour. Prince pulled out a B-side rarity (”Love or Money”), a heartfelt version of “Sometimes it Snows in April”, a killer jam on “Anotherloverholenyohead”, a preview of “Hot Thing” during “Head”, and so much more.”

The post follows up with a “where are they now” type of thing for each of the members of The Revolution.

  1. people tend to clump prince and madonna in the same category, and it tends to drive me mad.

    a lot of people know how much i can’t stand madonna – because she’s a profit-driven publicity whore who, aside from rarely writing or performing her own crappy music, crowned herself the queen of a generation’s sexual revolution (don’t even get me started), will exploit anything as long as it keeps her relevant, and is a business person before she’s an artist, if she’s even an artist.

    and prince is pretty much the opposite of all of that – widely underappreciated and a damn good performer. he has a clear message that his fans adore because it’s genuine, not because he’s spent years trainging them to love him like robots like some other blonde ambitions.
