Although I never bought her stuff but I was always a fan. She's just so cool. :up:

Say, I thought The Runaways were finally in talks to hook up again? What gives?

I would LOVE to see a Runaways reunion. Not sure if it will happen. Vicki Blue (replacement bassist for Jackie Fox) directed a documentary about The Runaways and Joan did not participate.

The closest I saw to a reunion was in Los Angles back in 1984 when Cherie Currie did some solo gigs with Sandy West on drums. Jackie Fox was in the audience. Sandy then had her own group for a while and Lita Ford was at one of the gigs.

Yeah that documentary was awesome. I guess I thought I heard that they had actually put aside "issues" and that even Joan was in talks with them. I mean it was a faliry recent(year and a half ago?) bit of news. Oh well.

I don't think Joan has any bones with Cherie or Sandy since she has links to their websites on hers. Cherie is still a hottie!

I just purchased The Runaways Live in Japan on CD. Man, those gals kicked ass!

***************
I've heard a few songs off the new CD: Fetish, Naked, Five, Baby Blue....and they are all very good. Fetish is quite explicit...so I don't think it will get radio play but Naked or Five would be great singles.

nodeerforamonth 04-28-06 11:22 AM

The closest thing I saw to a Runaways reunion was in LA at the Palladium over 10 years ago. Joan Jett was backed by L7 and they did Runaways songs.

chino77 04-28-06 09:12 PM

wow she got real butch. i do love me some rocky road though....oh sorry wrong artist.

JeffDoeXXX 04-29-06 10:47 AM

The majority of these songs have been kicked around since they were recorded in 1996-1997. A couple (FETISH, BABY BLUE) were reelased in 1999 on the Jett compilation cd FETISH. Most were released 2 years ago, in Japan, as the album NAKED. A couple were recently recorded (ACDC, re-recording of NAKED) for this US release. And yes, she has gotten VERY BUTCH.

nodeerforamonth 04-29-06 04:59 PM

Am I correct in assuming that "Androgynous" is the Replacements tune?

JeffDoeXXX 04-29-06 05:03 PM

Replacements tune
 
Yep, it's a cover of the Replacements. This song was recorded back in 1996 and she has been playing it in concert ever since. It also appeared on her 2004 Japanese cd NAKED.

cactusoly 04-29-06 07:09 PM

Cool, I saw her live 2 years ago and she played some of these songs and they Rocked. I didn't want to shell out the big bucks for the imports though.

mndtrp 04-30-06 12:26 AM

While it's a terrible place to go to actually experience music, I'll be seeing her at the Warped Tour this year. Depending on her performance, I'll decide if I would like to see her in another setting.

Joan and the boys definitely give it their all live. I've seen them a few times in the past couple of years and Joan rocks hard.

I like that one better than the "official' on coming June 6. The 'official' one is way too air brushed.

For those that want to check it out, the movie is called Edgeplay. I saw it on cable last year and immediately ordered it. If Joan had participated, it would've been a slam dunk. It's still pretty damn good, though.

Tom....very true. Joan's participation would have rocked! I guess she had her reasons.....but it would have been very cool.

JeffDoeXXX 05-02-06 06:47 PM

Joan Jett wanted it stopped altogether
 
You need to look into why Jett had no participation. There are tons of interviews and stuff out there with Vicki Blue on what happened behind the scenes of the making of the documentary and why Cherie Currie and Sandy West also ended up not wanting to have anything to do witht he film (although it was too late and they already got their 15 minutes of fame back in the spotlight by taking part in the movie.) Vicki did a great job with it and it was cool to see Lita Ford back in any shape or form.

Jett was just being difficult. I mean hell, THEY ALL had reasons for saying fuck you to the movie. However, most didn't and we ended up with great look into what was a very difficult situation for all.

LiquidSky 05-03-06 07:27 AM

I went ahead and ordered the advance copy of the CD from Joan's website.

:p @ LiquidSky

The funny thing is I tend to like Older Women so I think <i>some</i> of them look better now than they did back in the 1970's. :lol:

I was thinking about how although I had heard of The Runaways, I didn't remember them until Lita Ford and Joan Jett's solo careers came along. I was a huge Lita Ford fan back in the 80's.

LiquidSky 05-04-06 07:22 AM

I love Jackie Fox in that photo with her bass. She's really striking a pose and has that "don't fuck with me" look on her face. :)

I really liked Lita's first solo album "Out For Blood" the best....before the record execs made her too radio friendly/mainstream.

Giantrobo 05-04-06 11:38 PM

Wow. that's a nice pic. Lita's stuff was cool and I actually liked her duet with Ozzy.

JeffDoeXXX 05-06-06 02:16 PM

Just got the advance copy from her website. The sound varies from song to song quite terribly. Her cover of Sweet's bi-sexual anthem A.C.D.C is really cool.

I received mine last night. ACDC and Change the World kick ass! I love the new version of "Naked". Yeah, I noticed "Five" sounded muffled or something. Hopefully that will be fixed before the official release as it is a great song.

JeffDoeXXX 05-09-06 04:37 PM

I didn't care for CHANGE THE WORLD at all.

LiquidSky 06-06-06 12:30 PM

One more week :)

It's not that great, and I guess there were bonus tracks promised but now none are on it. Nice strategy.

Are you the same JeffDoeXXX from Joan's website?

Well, to each his/her own. I really dig the tunes on "Sinner". It's cool to see Joan back in the spotlight and have a new album released in the US. :rock:

JeffDoeXXX 06-06-06 05:19 PM

In the spotlight? Um, ok.

JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS – SINNER
from: sfgate.com
by Jaan Uhelszki


JOAN JETT has always brought a danger and fierceness to rock 'n' roll. But with "SINNER," her first studio record in six years, the female punk avatar goes far beyond the seditious '70s shag and bad attitude to break new musical and lyrical ground. Jett has spent 30 years showing the world that she can rock as hard as the guys, but here she's decided to show what's underneath that nervy impudence. While still straddling her guitar and channeling her beloved rock gods on punk anthems like "Change the World" and the Bush-trouncing "Riddles," she's cracked open the backstage door and given fans a peek at her personal life. An expected vulnerability and emotional candidness creep into songs like "Bad Time" and "Watersign." More startling is the exposure of a vein of doomed romanticism and vulnerability. It's probably the most dangerous thing Jett's ever done.

JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS – SINNER
from: Entertainment Weekly
by TS


On her first studio release with the BLACKHEARTS in over a decade, Jett’s trademark meaty riffs, raspy vocals, and exuberant tempos once again serve notice that her vaunted love for rock & roll is in no danger of flagging. Thankfully, she continues to resist any impulse to futz with her formula. Aside from a lackluster cover of the Replacements’ "Androgynous," SINNER’s a winner, full of tracks brimming with sass, grit, and totally ambrosial power-pop harmonies. I’m thinking canonization – or at least a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination. (Yup, she’s eligible.) A-

Music Briefs: JOAN JETT

by Farkleberries: Chicago style culture warbloggery


JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS' first new US album release in over a decade, SINNER, hits the stores June 6th (06-06-06, get it? Ha, ha.). With a few alterations and the omission of some tracks, the album is almost identical to the 2004 import-only CD Naked that received critical praise for Joan's expansion of her musical ambit - and fan complaints, for its high import-only ($30+) retail price. The change of name was probably a good move. The Talking Heads released a none-too-stellar late career album in 1988 also called Naked, that featured a painting of a chimpanzee in a similar cover pose as Joan's on her album called Naked. Not that people would generally confuse Joan with a chimpanzee, but "JOAN JETT - SINNER!" is a better culture war ralling cry than "JOAN JETT - Naked!" No? Well, at least I thought so.

SINNER is less about adolescent bird-flipping The Man than a thoughtful, centered effort by a artist who has grown from rebellious teen into a solid legend who needs no excuses; by contrast, in the 1982 Bad Reputation video, Joan getting collar-tossed from a bar by a burly bearded bouncer (followed by a silent-film slide that reads, "We don't want your kind in here!") comes across today as something like playing the victim. The early 80's Teenaged Joan the Misfit Rebel and 90's Liza-Minnelli-as-Glam-Biker Joan have given way to a Joan comfortable in her own skin as androgynously sexy maiden-mother-crone, simultaneously young and old, with all its implications of masculine/feminine energy intertwined. SINNER's lyrics are a sea change, a glasnost of sorts addressing politics and vulnerability in a way Jett's earlier music only hinted at. In that sense, SINNER is nothing if not refreshingly humanist.

Tracks to focus on are the the openly political "Riddles," a raunchy cruncher (which appeared on an earlier eponymous limited-edition EP) called "Fetish," "Five," a confessional indie-raga rocker, and the unexpectedly lush ballad "Watersign" - but the breakout single is Joan's playfully lecherous take on The Sweet's "AC-DC," that's generating a crackling internet buzz about her video starring Carmen Electra, that - how shall I put this - "kicks open the closet door" for Joan. Maybe she is playing with us after all, but teasing the fans by getting down with the former Baywatch Babe is cleanly calculated to make this one Big in Japan...and maybe elsewhere. Tongues will wag. Stay tuned. :)

.....and some people don't dig it:

National CD Reviews
JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS - SINNER
from: slugmag.com
by Brady Gunnell


"Gotta change the world!" howls JOAN JETT on track six of her latest album. SINNER, the first studio album in over ten years from Jett and her BLACKHEARTS sets opens with a highly politicized message and catchy hook. Unfortunately, that is really where the novelty ends. Aside from Jett’s increasingly gritty voice and the Orwellian anti-Bush opener, this album sounds like it could have been scooped up directly from 1985. The BLACKHEARTS are back with what they do best, rock, but it just doesn’t go much further. For some, this may very well be a blessing. It means more straightforward, accessible rock from an iconic front-woman whom is staying true to her roots. To others, this album could be plain boring. To me it lacks the vitality of the younger Jett, as on 1981’s seminal album. Here she sounds as if she has found a template, the music is mechanical as is her voice. On "Fetish" the band gets closer to doing something sonically interesting with their brand of three-chord guitar rock. And then she loses me when she sings about pounding some ass. This is the kind of music that should be reserved for listening to after five beers at a grungy bar. So, prepare yourself, and go see JOAN JETT and BLACKHEARTS on this years Warped Tour.

I believe it was released online last week. It will be in stores tomorrow 6/13/06 :rock:

A store here in Ohio which I get cds a few days early DID NOT get it and said his distributor did not know when he would receive it. Being that it is on Blackheart Records and not a major label, it could take a few extra days/a week to trickle down. Reportedly the 2 bonus tracks that were promised are a video of Joan and her manager/svengali recording ACDC in the studio and the bonus song KISS ON THE LIPS which was also on the NAKED cd from 2004. Enjoy...if you can find it.

I just got back from Tower where I purchased one. :rock:

Yeah, but for how much? Was it on "sale" for "$17.99"?
