Wampire: Wizard Staff

15. oktober 2014

Og en helt ny video fra bandet Wampire, som jeg gav mine anbefalinger for kort tid siden. Videoen gælder sangen “Wizard Staff”… Nyd den her.

Cat Stevens og Procul Harum…

15. oktober 2014

“Procol Harum was one of my favorite bands. //We kind of started out together in a way on this very exclusive label called Deram back in the ’60s. My drummer Barry went to join them so he actually played on ‘Whiter Shade of Pale,’ which I think is one of the best pop songs ever. They wrote some great songs and I wanted to sing something that respected their repertoire and I don’t know why but it was something that happened in Kansas when I was traveling. This was kind of apt for me and it reflected some of my memories.” Cat Stevens til magasinet Spin

Cat Stevens, der også kalder sig Yusuf Islam er aktuel med en ny plade, hvor han blandt andet har genindspillet en sang af det navnkundige orkester Procol Harum, der af en eller anden mærkelig grund er gledet lidt i g(l)emmebogen i disse år… Det er også en passende lejlighed til at hive dette fortrinlige tresserband frem i lyset igen.

 

Og lidt power-pop-rock…

14. oktober 2014

Nogle ting forandrer sig heldigvis ikke så meget. Garagerockens bastard powerpoppen har stadigvæk kronede dage, og flere nye bands og solister kaster sig med talent og appetit over denne altid vitale genre i rock’n roll. Et eksempel er den amerikanske singer-songwriter Mary B. Timony, der har slået sine folder ibands som Helium, Autoclave og Wild Flag, og nu tager têten i kvindebandet Ex Hex, der netop excellerer i ukompliceret spark-i-røv-powerpoprock…

To andre genredyrkere er Ty Segall, som jeg tidligere har omtalt, og Kyle Thomas, der markedsfører sig selv under artistnavnet King Tuff. Begge er aktuelle med album, der tager strøm fra den understrøm, der går lige tilbage til The Seeds og 13th Floor Elevators.

Dagens powerpopperle: Bangles – Complicated Girl

14. oktober 2014

 

Hvem andre end pigerne i The Bangles kunne stå for en sang om den komplicerede pige?! De burde jo vide det. Sangen er skrevet af bandmedlem Michael Steele, der også synger for.

“Complicated Girl”

Valerie is beautiful
But she seems a little bit confused
The life you offer her she says she cannot use

You live in another world
She thinks she won’t fit in
And oh, what about her plans for him
She bends to his will

Hey, you better listen
‘Cause I’m warning you
Love is never simple
With a complicated girl

You call her on the phone
She’s got the other guy on hold
You see the scene unfold
You know it very well

Stay inside your room all day
When she doesn’t call you pull the shades
Never seen you act this way
The girl has hit you hard

Hey, you better listen
‘Cause I’m warning you
Love is never simple
With a complicated girl

Why bother making rules
You know she will not follow
Someday she’ll find a way to remedy
This lovely mess she’s made of you

Hey, you better listen
‘Cause I’m warning you
Love is never simple
With a complicated girl
