How do you do today? Personally, quite well. I watched the dancing show of my daughter yesterday, which was amusing. Looking to girls (and one boy!) of 6-8 years old dancing on despacito and on a song of Bruno Mars was quite funny. Some of them were very good!
But it’s not the subject. It’s festival time this summer. I’m not gonna go to any this year (poor me) but fortunately there is a bit of them that are available on videos platforms. I saw some cool stuff on them. Liam Gallagher doing a song of Oasis while standing still as usual was good. And if you don’t know any song of the French band UltraVomit, I’m recommending you to watch the video here at Hellfest 2019. This French band is doing “funny metal”. Nevertheless they are incredibly really good musicians 😎
By the way, if you come to France and you want to see metal concerts I strongly encourage you to go to the Hellfest !
But it’s not the point. Recently, I used to watch what was happening at Glastonbury (so now you understand my title!). I saw really great things. Such as The Cure who are still one of my favorite band… I will talk about them in a future post. At last, I just found this live performance of the Foals. These guys are great. I love the voice of the singer, and really appreciate the energy they’re able to put on their songs. This energy is audible even on their records. Well in one word I like them. Make me know if you agree with me!
How do you feel this morning? Knowing that some people here are reading this post from the other side of the Atlantic, the question could be : how do you feel? Simply. But nevertheless it’s Sunday here in France. I’m sitting on my sofa with my daughter watching Barbie on the beach movie, thinking what we’re gonna do today.
And, I thought about the Bangles. This old girl band from the eighties is one of my favourite girl band (if you exclude hole). Yes, it’s really dated. Yes, it really sounds from the eighties. But yes, it is still some great songs. My favourite must be “walk like an Egyptian”. But today I share with you manic Monday.
I do love this song, don’t ask why, I really don’t know. Maybe it’s just the voice of the singer, maybe it’s the melody, maybe… I don’t know.
Hope you will enjoy starting your Sunday listening to the Bangles before having a manic Monday 😊
My title is awful, I know it, sorry about that. Well, besides this title, this morning I wanted to talk about Rage against the machine. I’ve shared with you guys the live performance of “take the power back” which is a quite good example of the energy that got the band.
Back in 1993, I was 18 years old. I was listening to a lot of guns n roses, red hot Chili Peppers, led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and telephone (a famous French band). When I first heard RATM, I was thinking “ok, that’s some speed red hot with rap on it”. Yes, but then I listened to the full epic jewel album. It’s astonished me. No sample in this record everything was done using Tom Morello way of guitar playing. Further, the lyrics, as a French guy, I don’t understand every words Zack de la Roca is saying. But the global meaning, I got it. So back to the Future, now, I’m still listening to it, finding back back my feeling when I was listening to it first. It’s given me energy for the entire day 😉
Hope you like it
It seems the start line is changing for 2019. Hope you guys are all in a good shape, and wish you all the best for this upcoming year. Everything in its right place, and everything possible.
To start 2019 or to end 2018, as you prefer obviously, I m sharing a pretty old video of alt-j. I’ve known the band a little bit, but I was only listening to some singles and remix. But to me, this title and album is one of the most important recently produced. The last work if alt-j is truly different. But still, all you got to do is to enjoy and tell me what you think of that video, which is a quite disappointing.
Comme as you are & See you soon,
