Song o’ the Week: The Last Conspirators’ “History”

June 14th, 2011, 10:12 am by Greg

Today is Flag Day, and the fine folks at Driving Rain Music decided that it would be the perfect day to release the brand new video for the Last Conspirators’ rousing new single, “History,” culled from their latest CD release, “When It All Comes Down.”

So here it is:

The Last Conspirators are gearing up for their next assault on Nippertown music fans at Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany at 9pm on Friday, July 15. Joining in the musical festivities will be the Sandy McKnight Fiasco and Spike Priggen.


Song of the Week: Who Wants A Revolution Anyway?

June 3rd, 2010, 4:41 pm by Sara

We reviewed “When It All Comes Down,” the new Last Conspirators EP last week, but it’s still echoing around in our ears, so we’re pleased as punch to be able to offer you a free download, for a limited time, of one of its tracks, “Who Wants A Revolution Anyway.”

Like it? Do ya? Really? Then leave a comment below…on Monday, we’ll pick a name at random to receive a free copy of the EP. (Trust me, it’s soooo worth it.) Congratulations, Doug!

Another one bites the dust…

Over the weekend, Jason’s Upstairs Bar in Hudson shuttered its doors for good, but not before kicking out the jams one final time on Saturday night. The big send-off throwdown featured performances by Mother Fletcher, the Last Conspirators, Young Paris, Lady Moon, Musty Chiffon and others.

And while it was certainly sad to see Hudson’s premier nightclub close, the farewell bash was rocking’, rollickin’ affair.

The best news of all is that “The Last Hurrah” raised $1,469 for Doctors Without Borders and their Haitian earthquake relief effort.

FIVE FIRSTS: Tim Livingston of the Last Conspirators

NAME: Tim Livingston (aka TL Stone)
BAND AFFILIATION: The Last Conspirators

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … As a kid my house was filled with albums and 45s. The full gamut of ’60s rock, pop and soul. I remember the first single I bought was “Summer in the City.” As far as an album goes, the first one I bought with money I had earned was in 1972 – Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out.” Vinyl LP with the original fold-out desk jacket and paper pantie dust sleeve. Cool music and packaging for an 11-year-old rocker. Soon after Ziggy, the Stooges, Mott the Hoople, the Stones’ “Exile” and the Dolls made their way into my collection, but AC was first.

Tim’s posting on nostalgia and the American dream reminded me that his band (The Last Conspirators) has a CD (War Party) dedicated to just this subject. Here’s my favorite song from it, Walking In Hellfire:
