Patti Smith and Kevin Shields to Release Double-CD

Apr 24th, 2008 // 5 Comments

AP080327018893.jpgPatti Smith and My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields will release a double-CD recording of The Coral Sea. The discs will draw from performances in 2005 and 2006, at which Smith recited a poem about the death of her friend photographer Robert Mapplethorpe while Shields made what was presumably an ungodly amount of noise behind her with guitars and effect pedals.

  1. Dick Laurent is dead.

    Maybe want?

    Strangely enough (and I shall brag a bit here), but I interviewed both for my college radio station in the 1990s, within weeks of each other. It was a good month.

  3. Ned Raggett

    An understatement.

    Is it just me, or do Patti Smith and Kevin Shields look like long-lost twins in most of their photos? Same hair and face shape, especially.

    The only thing that could make this cooler is scratch-n-sniff ‘Patti armpit’-scented CD artwork. Booooooooogaboogabooga.
