The Last Session of A Poet ..Gil Scott-Heron, Dies aged 62

2011-09-27T16:42:07.868+03:00

Poet, musician, activist, author, bluesologist. These are all terms that have been used to describe the great Gil Scott-Heron, who more humbly refers to himself simply as a “piano player from Tennessee”. Most famous for his era-defining 1970′s poem, “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,” Gil Scott-Heron’s politically charged material made him a stalwart figure in the 1970′s civil rights movement. His lyrical content covered topics like the superficiality of television and mass consumerism, the hypocrisy of some would-be Black revolutionaries and white middle-class ignorance of the difficulties faced by inner-city residents. Not only a pioneer of blues, jazz and funk, his honesty, matter-of-fact delivery and fearlessness to address important social issues in the face of media criticism made him one of the foremost progenitors of contemporary hip-hop and spoken word..

According to Cole Moreton of the Daily Mail, "The touring version of Pink Floyd's The Wall is one of the most ambitious and complex rock shows ever staged."   It is estimated that the tour cost £37 million ($60M) to stage  The first leg of the tour grossed in North America over $89.5 million from 56 concerts. It was the second highest grossing concert tour in North America in 2010 and the 10th worldwide." The tour opened 15 September 2010 in Toronto, and moved through North America before ending the first leg of the tour in Mexico City, 21 December 2010. The world tour will include Europe, starting 21 March 2011 in Lisbon, Portugal, and tentatively ending 8 & 9 July 2011, in Athens, Greece.  Waters has expressed wishes to visit other areas with the show after the European leg, but as yet nothing has been announced.Waters, a pacifist, has incorporated an increased emphasis on the show's anti-war message, and he has requested that fans send in pictures of loved ones who have died as a result of wars . Waters has published on his Facebook page, many of the pictures of projections made onto building's walls in urban areas, of a speech Dwight D. Eisenhower held before the American Society of Newspaper Editors 16 April 1953:Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed.''For the original tour of The Wall by Pink Floyd, from 1980-1981 see The Wall Tour.The Roger Waters Band, Kansas City, 30 October 2010 (from left to right, Kilminster, White, Joyce, Pat Lennon, Mark Lennon, Kip Lennon, Wyckoff, Roger Waters, Smith, Harry Waters, Carin, Broad)MusiciansRoger Waters - Bass Guitar, Lead Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, & Trumpet Graham Broad - Drums, Percussion, Ukelele Dave Kilminster - Guitar, Banjo G.

Don Van Vliet "Captain Beefheart" passed away R.I.P. (1941~2010)

2010-12-18T05:22:36.515+02:00

Terrible news: Don Van Vliet, the stupendous avant-garde bluesman, surrealist painter, and world-class eccentric, has died, as confirmed to multiple outlets by a rep from the Michael Werner Gallery, which often showed his work. He would've turned 70 in January. The engine behind unclassifiable and inimitable critic-beloved masterpieces like 1969's Trout Mask Replica and 1978's Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller), the California native has been personally mostly off the grid for decades, content to tend to his painting in relative seclusion while his former cohort Gary Lucas toured the world spreading the Beefheart gospel himself. Hopefully he keeps doing it.from The Village VoiceHave you heard that rumor that's goin' aroundYou got a man, way across townIt's the same old story, tell me where does it endYes I heard the news, it's the same old blues again...When I wrote you a letter, you must have read it wrongI stood at your doorway but she were goneI took a lot of time 'n let your telephone ringIt's the same old blues, it's the same old blues againWhen you gave me the business, you [.?.] I didn't mind'cause I got a lot of patience 'n I got a lot of timeIt's the same old story, tell me where does it endIt's the same old blues, it's the same old blues againGonna find me a mountain, gonna hide it outAin't talkin' to you 'n I ain't comin' outYes I heard the rumor, tell me where does it endIt's the same old blues, it's the same old blues againOooooh, oh baby babyWhat you make me doI don't know where I amIt's the same old blues, same old blues againWhoooooooah, oh oh oh .Captain Beefheart: 2006 Under Review captain beefheart discography  http://www.beefheart.com/ en.wikipedia.org    allmusic.com  Last FM DON VAN VLIET  - WORKS[...]

The Strawberry Statement 1970 (''Φράουλες και αίμα'')

2011-06-21T19:06:57.599+03:00

Φράουλες και αίμα του Τζέημς Κούνεν (γράφει , όπως το είδε ένας 19 χρονος σήμερα)Βρήκα πριν κάνα μήνα το βιβλίο Φράουλες και αίμα του Τζέημς Κούνεν ελαφρώς μεταχειρισμένο μόνο με 3 ευρώ. Αρνούμενος να δω πρώτα την μεταφορά του βιβλίου σε ταινία αφού είμαι πεπεισμένος πλέον για το πολυειπωμένο «καμία ταινία δεν είναι άξια του βιβλίου», το αγόρασα αμέσως και το βιβλίο υπάρχει πλέον στο ράφι πλάι σε άλλα πολλά αδιάβαστα ακόμα αφού η συχνότητα που αγοράζω βιβλία είναι κατά πολύ δυσανάλογη με την συχνότητα που τα διαβάζω. Μια ιδιαίτερα ηδονική όμως διαδικασία είναι αυτή που χαζεύεις τα βιβλία που δεν έχεις διαβάσει και βλέποντας τα ανυπομονείς να έρθει η ώρα τους. Μετά κάποιο απ’ το ράφι σου τραβάει για τον τάδε η δείνα λόγο την προσοχή και αρχίζεις να το επεξεργάζεσαι ξεκλέβοντας λέξεις φράσεις ή και αν σου αποσπάσει κατά πολύ το ενδιαφέρον και ολόκληρες σελίδες διάσπαρτες και ξαφνικά συνειδητοποιείς τι μαλακία έκανες … Διάβασες το τέλος. Τέτοια και άλλα πολλά κωμικά συμβαίνουν, όμως οι στιγμές αυτές για όσους δεν το έχουν ζήσει , πιστέψτε με , είναι ίσως καλύτερες πολλές φορές κι από την ανάγνωση ολόκληρου του βιβλίου σειριακά. Κάπως έτσι διάβασα λοιπόν και τον επίλογο του συγκεκριμένου βιβλίου που παραθέτω παρακάτω και θεωρώ ιδιαίτερα γοητευτικό ώστε να διαβάσω ολόκληρο το «φράουλες και άιμα» το συντομότερο δυνατόν:"Υπάρχουν μερικοί που θέλουν την ένοπλη επανάσταση, αλλά εγώ δεν είμαι από αυτούς. Τουλάχιστον δεν είμαι τώρα. Έχω όμως, κύριοι, μία δήλωση να κάνω."¨"Εφόσον η Πρώτη Δημοκρατία των Ηνωμένων Πολιτειών είναι εκατόν ενενήντα δύο χρονών και εγώ είμαι δεκαεννιά, της δίνω άλλη μια ευκαιρία.""Αν όμως οι Δημοκρατικοί δεν αναδείξουν τον Αδιάφθορο, που τον αγαπώ , παρ’ όλες τις επιφυλάξεις μου, ή αν τον αναδείξουν , αλλά αυτός αποδειχθεί πως είναι αυτό που υποψιάζομαι και δε θέλω να παραδεχτώ, τότε δεν θα μπορώ να κάνω τίποτα άλλο παρά να πω πως η δημοκρατία πέθανε και όχι μόνο πως πέθανε μα και πως δεν μπορεί πια να αναστηθεί με δημοκρατικά μέσα.""Εννοείται δεν θέλω να πολεμήσω στο Βιετνά[...]



John Lennon December 8,1980 30 years before - Year of Peace

2010-12-09T01:38:47.744+02:00

(embed)

(image) (image) In 1969, John Lennon married performance artist Yoko Ono, but while many couples would use their first year together to put their house in order, John and Yoko instead opted to use their celebrity and the media attention focused on their wedding to speak to the world about their favorite cause -- world peace. From their famous "bed-in for peace" to meetings with several of the world's political leaders, the couple created what they once described as an "advertising campaign for Peace" while the War in Vietnam raged on; it was a possibly naive but inarguably heartfelt gesture towards making the world a better place which solidified the couple's reputation as global activists. John & Yoko's Year Of Peace is a documentary produced for Canadian television which presents archival footage of Lennon and Ono's anti-war crusade, and interviews with Ono and her friends and contemporaries in which they recall the whirlwind peace campaign; speaking with Lennon and Ono in the newsreel segments are cartoonist Al Capp, media theorist Marshall McLuhan, and then-Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, among others. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

John Lennon A Documentary

2010-12-09T02:27:31.344+02:00

(embed)



The film explores the political activism that Lennon became strongly involved in with the Beatles and after the band ended.




(image) John Lennon is established as being a potential political threat to the American government, and therefore much of the film covers the theme of 'silencing' him and other popular figures that became involved in anti-war activism. Throughout the film the audience can see both sides of the situation: the audience sees the protests and events Lennon and Yoko Ono organised, such as the famous "Give Peace A Chance" rally and concepts such as bagism and bed peace.

R.I.P. Reg King (The Action, Blossom Toes, B.B. Blunder ,Mighty Baby)

2010-12-07T15:05:13.074+02:00

frameborder="0" height="400" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Dgqn8vvdT0c?fs=1" width="600">Reg King, frontman for the influential 1960s Mod band the Action died of cancer on Monday, Nov. 8, the UK's Independent reports. King, who has been publicly acknowledged as an influence by both Paul Weller and Phil Collins, was 65.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reg_KingThe Action, whose music was largely derived from soul and R&B, formed in 1963 and were known initially as the Boys. The band first backed singer Sandra Berry on the King-penned 1964 single 'Really Gonna Shake' before recording their own single debut, 'It Ain't Fair' later that year.The acclaim of that single, also written by King, earned the band the interest of Beatles producer George Martin, who signed the group -- which also counted drummer Roger Powell, Alan "Bam" King, bassist Mike "Ace" Evans and rhythm guitarist Peter Watson -- to Parlophone in 1965. After a name change, the Action had a run of UK hits with blue-eyed soul renditions of popular songs like Cannibal and the Headhunters' 'Land of a Thousand Dances,' the Marvellettes' 'I'll Keep on Holding On' and the Radiants' 'Baby You've Got It.'In 1967, under King's direction, the group shifted back to originals, writing its fourth single, 'Never Ever'/'Twenty Fourth Hour.' For its fifth and final A-side, the band changed gears to deliver the psychedelic rock number 'Shadows and Reflections.' Although King left the band later that year, his former bandmates backed him on his eponymous 1971 solo album that featured guest appearances by Steve Winwood and the Rolling Stones' Mick Taylor. Although 'Reg King' stalled commercially, renewed interest in the cult figure prompted a CD reissue in 2006. The band reunited in 2000, with King's final performance occurring at 2004's Modstock.(from Spinner)Reg King belonged to the Action, Mighty Baby, Blossom Toes, B.B. Blunder family tree, leaving the Action before they became Mighty Baby and performing with (ex-Blossom Toes) B.B. Blunder after releasing this acclaimed and rare solo record.Members from the bands above would form the backbone for this project, recorded over three years and guesting Stevie Winwood on keys. The Action had cut their teeth covering Motown soul during the mid 60s and those influences had not gone amiss for this LP, albeit through distorted guitars and stoney jams. The leadoff track “Must Be Something Else Around” is a blistering slice of hard English rock that probably gave Led Zep a brief jolt of anxiety. “That Ain’t Living” has the explosive impatience of certain tracks I know from The Action, but add this album’s key ingredient: raw and relentless blue-eyed soul, propelled by Reg King’s voice – probably the best of the British hard-rock-soul singers.It’s not a grand slam on the other hand. I’m not much of a blues-hound, so “Down The Drain,” or six-minutes of predictable blues doesn’t do it for me. But “That Ain’t Living” pushes hard through a fully worthwhile six of spirited rock. There are a couple less memorable tracks, but the good hooks make this record worth a spin. Perhaps a good introduction to the Action family tree .http://www.makingtime.co.uk/action.html   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Action   http://www.actionmightybaby.co.uk/   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mighty_Babyenjoy : The Action - Rolled Gold (1967-68)The Action "The Ultimate Action"   THE ACTION Action Packed!Mighty Baby - Live In The Attic 1970  with Reg KingReg King (self-titled) 1971 Reg King - Reg K[...]

Tony Curtis (R.I.P.)

2011-07-22T13:48:48.709+03:00

Actor Tony Curtis, who died yesterday at the age of 85, was Hollywood royalty when he co-starred with future 007 Roger Moore in the UK adventure series The Persuaders, which ran one season from 1971 to 1972. Curtis was the upstart Yankee Danny Wilde, Moore was the fussy Brit Lord Brett Sinclair, and together they were suave, middle-aged "international playboys" who flashed cash, bedded beautiful babes, and, yes, solved mysteries. While the show fared OK with British TV viewers, it was not a U.S. success, but it has become a cult classic of early '70s cool. Here are the show's very colorful opening titles, which, without any voiceover, fills you in on the men's entire backstories in split screen:http://www.bbcamerica.com/content/23/anglophenia.jsp?bc_id=1863Curtis died at his Las Vegas (Henderson, Nevada) home on September 29, 2010, of an apparent cardiac arrest In a release to the Associated Press, his daughter, actress Jamie Lee Curtis, stated:"My father leaves behind a legacy of great performances in movies and in his paintings and assemblages. He leaves behind children and their families who loved him and respected him and a wife and in-laws who were devoted to him. He also leaves behind fans all over the world. He will be greatly missed.."  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Curtis   Goodbye Mr.Curtis..T H E     L O N G    G O O D B Y E !!The Persuaders : Roger Moore & Tony Curtis late 60's Music By John Barry The Persuaders Theme[...]



Director Arthur Penn dies at age 88

The Outsider : Arthur Penn's decades-long struggle against the Hollywood machineby Michael Chaiken and Paul Cronin  posted June 4, 2008 In his 50 years within the American film industry, Arthur Penn's changing fortunes have rivaled those of the greatest characters in his own films.Born in Philadelphia in 1922, Penn grew up during the Depression, spending his childhood divided between the city of his birth and, after his parents' divorce in 1925, New York. The dislocation of Penn's home life, coupled with the stigma of being a child of divorce, would have a profound and lasting effect on his psychological and emotional development. Moving among comedy, tragedy, realism, and absurdity (sometimes within the same story), his films address the traumas of childhood and adolescence through characters whose lack of self-evident identity is circumscribed by the impersonal social forces governing their lives.(read more here)A R T H U R   P E N N  (1922–2010) on  IMDbArthur Penn, left, with the actors Warren Beatty and Alexandra Stewart, during rehearsals for the film “Mickey One” in 1964 (from.nytimes.com)Penn, Arthur Hiller, 1922-, American director, brother of Irving Penn, b. Philadelphia; studied Black Mountain College and the Actors' Studio, Los Angeles. Penn, who often deals with themes of alienation in American life, began directing for television during the late 1940s. His Broadway credits include Two for the Seesaw (1958), The Miracle Worker (1959, Tony Award; film, 1962), and Toys in the Attic (1960). His first film, The Left-Handed Gun (1958), a psychologically probing study of Billy the Kid, was also an adaptation of a television drama. Penn's masterpiece, Bonnie and Clyde (1967), is a darkly brilliant study of the Depression-era outlaws that combines high drama with comedy, social comment, and extreme violence. Displaying an offbeat take on several screen genres, his other movies include Micky One (1965), Alice's Restaurant (1969), Little Big Man (1960), Night Moves (1975), and The Missouri Breaks (1976). Among his later, less commercially successful films are Four Friends (1981), Dead of Winter (1987), and Inside (1996).(from  Columbia Encyclopedia )http://www.answers.com/topic/penn-arthur-hiller'Bonnie and Clyde' director Arthur Penn diesArthur Penn, Director of ‘Bonnie and Clyde,’ DiesRIP ARTHUR PENN http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_PennArthur Penn's haunting tracking shot from the final scene of Alice's Restaurant.

Jimi Hendrix November 27th, 1942 - September 18, 1970

Hendrix was also in Hawaii to play the last concert on his 'Cry of Love' tour with his reformed 'Jimi Hendrix Experience' (with Billy Cox replacing Noel Redding on bass & backing vocals. Mitch Mitchell & Cox were also previously members ofGypsy Sun and Rainbows.Rainbow Bridge is a 1972 film directed by Chuck Wein that features footage from a Jimi Hendrix concert, and a short piece of conversation between Pat Hartley, Wein and Hendrix. It was mainly financed by Hendrix manager Mike Jeffery, hence his appearance. The film is about Pat Hartley's "spiritual awakening" via a visit to the 'Rainbow Bridge' planetary meditation cult on Maui, where, as part of the proceedings Jimi Hendrix visits to play a concert during a 'Rainbow Bridge' mass meditation/colour/sound "experiment". The "Rainbow Bridge" concert was a free concert by Jimi Hendrix that was held on July 30, 1970, in a horse pasture above Seabury Hall, on the "Upcountry" slopes of Haleakala, the volcano that makes up 75% of the island of Maui, Hawaii, although it probably last erupted in the 17th century, it is officially considered as being active.The director Chuck Wein introduced Hendrix' performance (no mention of a group name) as the driving force of this 'Rainbow Bridge' "experiment" , (this title is often mistaken as being the name of the site of this concert rather than the name of this "Planetary meditation" cult, an extension of the Gaia hypothesis into spiritual realms). The original cut, not surprisingly used very little of the concert footage, as this was not intended to be a concert film and no music from the performance was released on the official Reprise LP "Rainbow Bridge- Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" for contractual reasons and due to the original music soundtrack being unreleasable due to its very substandard sonic quality on account of strong winds that day. The album does include, however, the studio tracks featured in the film. However, the music from the concert was distributed as a bootleg recording for three decades, before Radioactive Records released this same bootleg recording on the 2003 album, The Rainbow Bridge Concert: The Early Show until it was withdrawn due to a court action by 'Experience Hendrix' which makes this officially a 'bootleg' CD release. The 'Rainbow Bridge' concert was the penultimate performance by Hendrix in the United States, his last was two days later on August 1, 1970, in Honolulu, Hawaii. Hendrix died less than two months later on September 18, 1970 in London, England.(from Wikipedia)Original `Rainbow Bridge`USA 1sheet 1972 movie poster for Hendrix free concert at Maui Hawaii Jimi Hendrix - 1973 A Film About Jimi Hendrix Jimi Hendrix -  Documentary 2004Jimi Hendrix - DVD - The last 24 hours Rainbow Bridge (film) Wikipedia,  Rainbow Bridge  IMDb  Enjoy!Rainbow Bridge   The film Rainbo[...]
