Archäologie DCLXVIII: Eine ganz Große ist noch da - "Personne d’autre"

View on YouTube
"Personne d’autre" ist das insgesamt 24. Studioalbum der 74-Jährigen, die in den frühen 1960er-Jahren mit ihrem millionenfach verkauften Debüt "Tous les garçons et les filles" auf dem Vogue-Label augenblicklichen Ruhm erlangte und in der Folge einer der führenden Figuren der einflussreichen Yéyé-Bewegung wurde. "Personne d’autre" enthält 10 neue Songs – darunter einen auf Englisch gesungenen, das von Yael Naim geschriebene "You're My Home" –, ein Cover von Michael Bergers "Seras-tu là" und eine Adaption des Songs "Sleep" der finnischen Band Poet Of The Fall.

Archäologie DCLXVII: † 6. April 2018 in Paris. Noch ein ganz Großer ist nicht mehr da

Zuweilen bemerkt man erst (wie ich schon häufiger feststellte), wenn man vom Tod eines Menschen erfährt, wie wichtig er einem war. In Frankreich kennt jeder - über 40 - die Songs von Jacques Higelin. Der engagierte Sänger, Songwriter und Vater von Arthur H., Kên und Izïa - die alle drei auch Musik machen - ist in Paris im Alter von 77 Jahren gestorben.

Ganz wunderbar: Jacques Higelin et Isabelle Adjani - Je ne peux plus dire je t'aime (1982)

View on YouTube
Je ne peux plus dire je t'aime
Ne me demande pas pourquoi
Je ne ressens ni joie ni peine
Quand tes yeux se posent sur moi
Si la solitude te pèse
Quand tu viens à passer par là
Et qu'un ami t'a oubliée
Tu peux toujours compter sur moi
Je ne peux plus dire je t'aime
Sans donner ma langue à couper
Trop de serpents sous les caresses
Trop d'amours à couteaux tirés
Si dure que soit la solitude
Elle te ramène à ton destin
La loi du grand amour est rude
Pour qui s'est trompé de chemin
Je ne peux plus dire je t'aime
Ne me demande pas pourquoi
Toi et moi ne sommes plus les mêmes
Pourquoi l'amour vient et s'en va
Si la solitude te pèse
Quand le destin te mène ici
Et qu'un ami t'a oubliée
Tu peux toujours compter sur moi
Et qu'une amie vienne à manquer
Tu peux toujours compter sur moi

Star Sponge Vision featuring Jon Povey & Twink (formerly of The Pretty Things) - 'Crowley and Me'

It's 1974 I am sitting with Jimmy Page in the Hyatt hotel on Sunset Blvd watching a film by Kenneth Anger "Scorpio Rising". listening to Jimmy's music. We talk about many things, including his interest in one Aleister Crowley! The seed is sown.
Fast forward to 2016. I have been working with Twink on his "Technicolor Dream" music, adding keyboards and vocals. Twink says "Ever thought about looking into Crowley poetry and writing music to it?" No, I said, another seed drops into my mind. Sometime later I purchase many books about this strange and complicated man, Aleister Crowley. I am glued to the pages...

Textlich ziemlich esoterischer Kram, aber die Musik ist großartig: Parachute-Pretty-Things-mäßig!!

Archäologie DCLXI : On this day in music history: February 11, 1968 - The Beatles record “Hey Bulldog” in Studio Three at Abbey Road Studios in London

On this day in music history: February 11, 1968 - The Beatles record “Hey Bulldog” in Studio Three at Abbey Road Studios in London. Written primarily by John Lennon (and completed with Paul McCartney in the studio), it is one of the last songs the band completes before departing London for Rishikesh, India to study Transcendental Meditation with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. “Hey Bulldog” is slated for inclusion in the film and soundtrack for the animated feature “Yellow Submarine”. Film cameras are present during the session, providing a rare glimpse of the band at work in the studio. The footage is initially used as the promotional film for the single “Lady Madonna” which is recorded eight days before. “Hey Bulldog” is significant in The Beatles career, as it is one of the last true songwriting collaborations between Lennon and McCartney. The song is featured in a sequence toward the end of “Yellow Submarine”, but is excised from US release prints and initial home video releases of the film. The sequence is restored to all versions when the film is re-released in 1999.

Archäologie DCLV : Die 60er Jahre des letzten Jahrhunderts gehen zu Ende - Zombies bassist and former Kinks member Jim Rodford dies at 76 [God Gave Rock And Roll To You]

The musician, whose career spanned six decades and included 18 years with the Kinks, died on Saturday after a fall on the stairs, his cousin and the band’s frontman Rod Argent confirmed.

Argent paid tribute to his “dear cousin and lifelong friend”, writing on the band’s Facebook page: “It is with deep sadness that I learned this morning that my dear cousin and lifelong friend, Jim Rodford, died this morning after a fall on the stairs.
“Jim was not only a magnificent bass player, but also from the first inextricably bound to the story of the Zombies.”
Argent said Rodford was dedicated to music “to the end” and added he “was unfailingly committed to local music”.

“Often, Colin [Blunstone – lead singer of the Zombies] and I would compare notes a couple of days immediately after a US tour and discuss how long it would take us to recover from an intense, fantastic but exhausting couple of months – only to find out and marvel that Jim had already been out playing with local bands,” he wrote.
Rodford had been working on his autobiography at the time of his death and is survived by his wife of 56 years, Jean, and three generations of Rodfords.

The Kinks
’ official Twitter page said he would be “greatly missed”.

Walter James “Jim” Rodford was born on 7 July 1941 and began playing bass in the late 1950s with St Albans skiffle band the Bluetones.
He helped Argent form the Zombies in 1961, declining an invitation to join the group but coached them through their first rehearsals. Following the break-up of the Zombies in 1968, he joined Argent’s new band, the eponymously named Argent – with gold records and chart success following as they released Hold Your Head Up and God Gave Rock & Roll to You.
When Argent split in 1976 Rodford joined the Kinks during their later years and remained until their dissolution in 1996 when he came full circle by eventually joining the Zombies – along with his son Steve on drums – as they were resurrected by Argent and Blunstone in 1999.
In September, Rodford received an honorary doctor of arts degree at the University of Hertfordshire.

Archäologie DCLIV : The Pretty Things - All Light Up

Not since Jonesy banged out his psychedelic samba on a Mellotron on The Stones "We Love You" has there been such a magnificent use of that quirky little keyboard. This Prettie's 1999 single,- released in 2007 on Balboa Island, the eleventh studio album by the English rock band The Pretty Things - in my estimation, rates as the best thing they've done since "S.F. Sorrow" with great lyrics, ballsy delivery and of course some nifty Mellotron c/o keyboard player John Povey.

Wise Man Says

"Es gibt so viele Arschloch-Typen wie es menschliche Funktionen, Tätigkeiten und Interessengebiete gibt. Und auf jedem Gebiet kann das Verhältnis von AQ zu IQ ein anderes sein. Kein noch so kopfdenkerisches Verhalten bei einem Thema bietet Gewähr dafür, dass nicht schon beim nächsten der Arschdenk mit voller Wucht einsetzt." Charles Lewinsky, Der A-Quotient

Wise Man Says II

"The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater." Frank Zappa
