Fear's Lee Ving and Exene Cervenka at Deluxe, Saturday, April 4
"What will Ving be playing?" I wondered last night -- a valid question, since he's versatile and has a bitching voice. Wikipedia says he's done some outlaw country tunes, so I'd imagine some of these will surface. Check out the range in an appearance on Fame here. (His starring turn as an actor in Dudes is also on YouTube, in full.) Fear's recent gigs show the same piss-and-vinegar of the olden days, so I wouldn't be surprised to hear classics like "I Love Living in the CIty," "I Don't Care About You" or "Let's Have a War."
Of course, then there's this 1984 gem of Ving and Tom Scott on the Alan Thicke show Thicke of the Night. Scott totally co-wrote the Family Ties theme song. Which is maybe why it sounds so righteously smooth-jammy.
And then there's the infamous Fear KSHE ad, which deserves a re-post.
Or how about Grover singing Fear. (WTF?)
Okay, and here's the real Fear.
