Peter Gabriel and Arcade Fire

In 2010 Peter Gabriel recorded an album entitled Scratch My Back.

It consisted of gorgeous cover versions of songs by artists that he admires, including Lou Reed, Bon Iver, Regina Spektor, Radiohead, David Bowie, Talking Heads and Arcade Fire.

Many of these same artists have returned the favor by recording his songs on the album And I’ll Scratch Yours.

Listen here to Peter Gabriel’s version of Arcades Fires’ “My Body is a Cage” and then Arcades Fire performing Gabriel’s “Games Without Frontiers”.

David Lynch and Iggy Pop

DLF Music is filmmaker David Lynch’s music company created to benefit the David Lynch Foundation.

“The Foundation exists for consciousness-based education and world peace. The David Lynch Foundation was established in 2005 to fund the implementation of scientifically proven stress-reducing modalities including Transcendental Meditation, for at-risk populations such as underserved inner-city students; veterans with PTSD and their families; American Indians suffering from diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and high suicide rates; homeless men participating in re-entry programs striving to overcome addictions; and incarcerated juveniles and adults.”

Of note, all of the funds from DLF Music sales go directly to the charitable programs and none to the support staff.

The first DLF Music album Music That Changes the World (Vol.1) will soon be released including songs from Ozomatli, Iggy Pop, Jakob Dylan/Daryl Hannah, Arrested Development, Peter Gabriel, Donovan, Heather Nova, Andy Summers/Geeta Novotny, Dave Stewart, Tom Waits, Ben Folds and Neon Trees.

Iggy Pop sings the blues classic “Milk Cow Blues”.

From the Archives: Peace Together

Of late I’ve been combing through my 20,000+ CDs, filing and re-filing and weeding and searching and re-discovering what lies hidden in this treasure trove. I happened upon a disc entitled Peace Together, a benefit album for the youth of Northern Ireland that was released in 1993. Chances are you may never have heard of this disc. I didn’t remember it. But it features bands from Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. Listen here to U2 with Lou Reed, Blur covering Elvis Costello and a beautiful version of the obscure song “Be Still”, by Peace Together, an illustrious combination of British and Irish musicians including Peter Gabriel, Sinead O’Connor, Feargal Sharkey, Jah Wobble, mixed by Robin Guthrie and featuring Elizabeth Fraser of Cocteau Twins. Peace!
