As always, with every generation, you feel like this is the end man: it’s the nuclear arms race, it’s Ronald Reagan, doomsday’s coming, “1984” — that play is more relevant now than ever. All these things are evil and there is a lot of evil, but you have to find a way to stay positive. I believe in the P.M.A., the Positive Mental Attitude, so ‘Meet Me At The End Of The World’ came from being inundated with all my friends that are pissed off about stuff. But you know what, you’ve got to live every day like it could be your last.Musically, the song was written with two chords at a soundcheck in Long Beach with Alejandro Escovedo and Derek Cruz, my guitarist, just jamming these two chords like the Stones or Bowie’s “Heroes” and I started to put a melody over it. … Then I finished it out in a van and me and Derek arranged it in a hotel room in Oakland.”Track 02: “Fox News Funk””It came from a jam that Derek had. It was kind of like a Clash, kind of Sandinista! thing. Again, [it was inspired by] the media blitz … and reading USA Today because it comes under the door, and realizing you don’t want to mix politics and music all the time — but life is political. You walk out your door and you’re hit with things. You have to pay for gasoline. You have to eat. You’ve got to pay rent. And [I thought about] how much the media is owned by the government, by the big corporations, so you’re not getting the full story. I think [this song is] a call to people to go beyond that, go with their guts and their hearts. You have got to treat the people around you with love, but you also have to question the powers that be, because as much as I love this country and this planet, there are some people that are out to line their own pockets and have an agenda.Track 3: “Revelations/Thirteen””‘Revelations’ is a song about a breakup that happened. I was dating a girl who had the same name as me, Jesse, and if we would have gotten married, she would have became Jesse Malin (laughs). … But we met one day to go have ‘the talk,’ like when you’ve got to break up with somebody and have the conversation, and we met at a health food restaurant — I’m a vegetarian — on East 12th Street in Manhattan called Angelica’s. I bumped into like Moby and Cyndi Lauper and John [Joseph] from the Cro-Mags there, and you know it’s just a a great spot, I wish it was still there. But [this song is] the anticipation of playing back that conversation in your head knowing you’ve got to have this talk, but after it’s done you know you’re going to be OK. And then we just went into “Thirteen” by Big Star, it’s just something that happened in the studio and we kept it. It’s one of my favorite Big Star songs.”Track 4: “London Rain””‘London Rain’ was written about our old merch girl and tour manager from the U.K. who was diagnosed with cancer and is paralyzed. She needed a wheelchair and she kept such a great outlook that we named her “The Positive Panther,” and we did a charity with Butch Walker, Joan Jett, the Eagles Of Death Metal guys, L7, Chris Stills, Tommy Stinson — just a whole bunch of people stepped up. And we raised money to get her a wheelchair. I wanted to have a song to sing at that show for her, and “London Rain” was written to do at the benefit, but it became a song that would end up on the Meet Me At The End Of The World EP as well.” Read more News From current events to breakups, New York-based singer/songwriter reveals the inspiration behind the four tracks on his new EPNate HertweckGRAMMYs Aug 5, 2017 – 5:17 pm GRAMMY.comRunning all the way across Grant Park to catch an artist you want to see is a common practice at Lollapalooza in Chicago. Friday, Aug. 4 at noon, that was me rushing to catch New York troubadour Jesse Malin on the BMI Stage for the first set of the day. Rewarded for my efforts, I entered earshot just in time to hear the shimmering reverb-drenched guitar stabs in the opening notes of “She Don’t Love Me Know,” an undeniable number from Malin’s 2015 album, New York Before The War. What followed was a blistering set of tunes plucked from Malin’s prolific career, complete with rock and roll interstitials about love, breakups and opening up for his childhood idols Kiss at Madison Square Garden. As a member of D Generation and as a solo artist, Malin has accomplished a lot throughout his career thus far. So when I caught my breath and caught up with the highly acclaimed songwriter’s songwriter backstage, he took me through each of tracks on his new four-song EP, which features a title track that was possibly the highlight of his Lollapalloza set, and easily the feel-good song of the apocalypse: “Meet Me At The End Of The World.” Facebook Twitter Dive deeper into Jesse Malin’s mind with some of his favorite summer songs on his official Lollapalooza Spotify playlist.More Lollapalooza: Bishop Briggs Talks Psychics, Music Influences Inside Jesse Malin’s New EP, Track By Track jesse-malins-meet-me-end-world-ep-track-track Jesse Malin’s ‘Meet Me At The End Of The World’ EP: Track By Track Meet Me at the End of the World Email
With its key revenue driver Maggi instant noodles in trouble, the Nestle India stock has been downgraded yet again, this time by ICICI and Kotak. The brand holds 72 percent (by volume) of the instant noodle market in India and contributes about 30 percent to its net sales. A nationwide recall of the product is therefore is seen as a major setback to its revenues by analysts.ICICIdirect.com has cut the price target to ₹6,039 from ₹6,901, while Kotak had downgraded it to ₹5,800 from ₹6,012.”We have a cautious view on the stock as we expect volume growth to remain under pressure in CY15E (volume growth at 0.7% CAGR in CY11-14). We cut our target price on the stock to Rs 6039 per share (45x its CY16E earnings) and maintain our HOLD rating on the stock,” according to moneycontrol.com.Kotak has said that the impact on Nestle India is contigent on certain factors. “The impact of the Maggi recall on Nestle India’s current year’s numbers is likely to be moderate-to-substantial, depending on the pace of (1) resolution of issue at hand, and (2) regaining consumer confidence,” analysts at Kotak said in their research note, according to The Economic Times.The Nestle India stock came under heavy selling pressure this week, as the controversy raged on its Maggi instant noodles, after food regulators of several Indian states detected more than permissible limits of lead and MSG in Maggi noodle samples and banned it.Falling by 15 percent in six trading sessions, the stock price saw some stabilization on Friday.The share price of Nestle India closed at ₹ 5,997.10 on the Bombay Stock Exchange on 5 June, down 15 percent from ₹7,064.85 on 27 May. The volume of Nestle’s shares traded on the stock exchanges rose three times than the average volume in the past few months.Foreign brokerage Barclays had earlier downgraded its target price for the Nestle India stock to ₹5,149 from ₹5,593 previously estimated, Business Today reported.
Listen Al OrtizFile Photo – Tents set up at a homeless encampment at the intersection of Highway 59 and Caroline Street on April 21, 2017. 00:00 /00:50 A year after Hurricane Harvey, we’re still learning more about the impact of the storm on local communities.While a new study further suggests recovery remains slow for many in hard-hit areas in the region, Houston’s unsheltered homeless population also received its first uptick, since 2011. The unsheltered homeless rate was declining for years, prior to Harvey, according to the Coalition for the Homeless.Marliyn Brown, the Coalition’s President and CEO, said the group’s annual survey at the beginning of the year revealed an additional 500 unsheltered homeless people.“When we asked people, ‘What caused your homelessness,’ 18 percent said it was a result of Hurricane Harvey,” said Brown. The Coalition found 258 unsheltered homeless people in the Houston region were homeless as a direct result from Hurricane Harvey.Brown believes they will be able to catch back up with the downward trend, because their housing units weren’t as affected by the storm as they originally feared. She said they’re now back on track, to housing about 100 people per month. But, she said, long-term ramifications of the storm remain unclear.“I’m not really sure when we’ll ever know,” said Brown. “It’s not just a one-time, ‘We’ll get you back on your feet and you’ll do well.’ So, I think as far as our system, and our inventory of units, and being able to identify and help people: we’re back on track. But, I think we have a new set of conditions that are affecting people in a different way that will continue to stay with us… This is a new trauma that adds to the lack of ability to stabilize.”Brown said every large city in Texas had an increase in homelessness this year.The Texas Homeless Network estimates about 590 people in the state experienced homelessness, as a direct result from Harvey.
