S. E. Rogie and Jonathan

Hello everyone,

In the late 80's Jonathan played a few shows on the same bill as legend S. E. Rogie.
S. E. Rogie is the author of "African Lady", which is on the great "Modern Lovers 88" album.

Here's a recording of Jonathan performing African Lady with S. E. in London, at the Mean Fiddler, on June 28, 1988: AfricanLady_19880628.mp3

And, here's the full show in a zip file if you want to hear a great late 80's show:


  1. Listening to it now thanks!

  2. Great news from Mission Mission : On Lou Reed's birthday, this Sunday March 2, Jonathan Richman will guest on Radio Valencia's show Wax! Crackle!Pop! to celebrate his life and music. I think the show will then be available on Wax! Crackle! Pop!'s page.

  3. Thanks a bunch for this. I never knew African Lady was a cover, but I have a good excuse : on the label for side A of the Modern Lovers' 88, where the song is to be found, it states "All songs composed by Jonathan Richman"...!

  4. Thanks a lot Nugrape! (and also thanks to Ruan ;-)

  5. Ahh Nugrape! You've done it again! Cheers from Melbourne Australia!
