Stage dive off of porches into crowds of dandelions

I trust that by now everyone has heard the 2 lead tracks off the forthcoming Begin to Hope over on Regina's MySpace page. For the record:
  1. I think they TOTALLY FUCKING ROCK! Yeah!
  2. If you don't like them, I think you're crazy. Or just afraid of change.
  3. But I'm pretty confident you'll like them eventually, once the shock of dissimilarity wears off.
  4. Unless you're stubborn. Or just crazy.
  5. But no matter what, we'll still be friends. Yeah!
Moving right along, here's a set from December 2003 in New York--a homecoming show of sorts after the Strokes/Kings of Leon tours, and also a stopover before playing New Year's Eve in Las Vegas with those same folks. The space was packed to fire-hazard level, as seemingly everyone was there, including the aforementioned Strokes (you'll hear a bit of banter between Regina and J. Casablancas on track 5), and Regina busted out a bunch of new stuff for the occasion (although by now it's nothing you haven't heard a thousand times already, I'm sure).

The subtext here is that if you don't like the new songs, Serge will totally kick your ass. Like, into next week.

(Don't mess with him. He is one dangerous mofo.)

Haha true dat.

Srg will mess you up.
I saw a a show once in NYC and afterwards he took me into a back alley and beat my face to a bloody pulp, and then he stole my Regina t-shirt right off my back.
He said it was cause i looked at the back of his head too much.
lying there shirtless in SOHO i knew never again to cross this guy

I went to college with the guy. I once made the mistake of living on his hall, and it cost me a fortune in "protection" money.

The new songs are different and are amazing, love 'em! Regina rocks!!!!!!!!! It's great that she tries new stuff, that's what a real artist does. She's taking risks, exploring new sounds. It works because she's talented.
Thank you so much for all the mp3!

Oh God Regina is so fucking great!
So it makes me really sad that almost nobody in my country knows her.
Thank you for all the mp3's!

hi I noticed on the lyrics for "I cut off my hair" you have a question mark before shoes. I was listening to it and it sounds like point shoes (like for ballet)anyway that's it. I love this page! :)

Yeah, in Dusseldorf it is "Moscow Mother". I seem to recall regina saying this somewhere in a discussion.

And I know this isn't the place to mention lyrics notes, but also in "Mermaid" the line is "an old photo of Belarus". Not ballet ruse, whatever that would be.

Thanks you for continuing to host and share everything that's on here SRGY PERGY! I don't know why I said your name like that. Sorry.

i love this site. have you ever considered databasing it
so one can do a search for words & phrases? kinda like at - i did that one, and if
you want it, i could ask my server-guy if it's possible to
copy the database structure and code if you have mysql/php
available on our server :) or maybe i could host it, but
i don't have any admin for it, so you kinda have to add
stuff via the phpmyadmin manually, which is a lil tedious
if you aren't used to that. lemme know.

hey there, great site.

i couldn't find your email anywhere so i'm leaving this message here. sorry about the waste of space.
the latin part in lacrimosa goes like:

'lacrimosa dies illa
qua resurget ex favilla
iudicandus homo reus.
huic ergo parce deus'

Thanks for putting the effort in on the site, and for sharing her emotions - I just shed a tear to one of her live tracks... I am missing her Live in London tonight (another teardrop). Love the new CD, of course, but thesexycleverone is sooo much better live. So don't do a torrent search for thesexycleverone live at Grenoble - Audio Yummy
