Peter Case Extravaganza!


That's Peter Case, front and center, leading the Plimsouls round about 1979 at the Jefferson Bowl in Culver City. That place had the best fried noodles - yeah, bowling and Chinese food... that's very LA.

Anyway, I had the greatest time hanging out with Peter and catching up with him in Los Angeles around Christmas time. And now, I'm in New York City and he will be too.

Dig this info from Phast Phreddie Patterson: I don't edit Fred - his transmissions are just so entertaining. He's a real hep cat.

Dear Friends,

On Wednesday evening at the Cutting Room club there is going to be a celebration of the music of my good friend Peter Case.

Peter and I have been pals since he first moved to California in early 1977. I have been a big supporter of his through all his bands--The Nerves, The Breakaways, The Plimsouls, and of course his solo career. He is one of the most talented guys you'll ever meet. I heartily urge you to attend this event on Wednesday night. (February 8)

A Case For Case:

A Tribute to the Songs of Peter Case

3-CD set

Peter Case is one of America's most gifted singer-songwriters. For over 30 years-from street singer to soul-punk bandleader to solo acoustic performer--Case has used his songs to crash barriers in popular music. On this 3-disc, 47-song ode to Peter Case you'll hear the energy of the tribute in each of these recordings, which individually and as a whole are, if you will, a "case for Case," an argument for the talent of one of America's most prolific, under-rated, original, and best songwriters. This two-year project was completed because musicians, fans, and friends love Peter Case--both the man and his music.
