Just another manic Sunday…

Hello buddies,

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 😊

Cheers

Hi buddies!

Hope you guys getting fine on this Saturday night?

Tonight I was browsing the web, looking for some cool stuff, and after seeing some great videos of Blanche Gardin (if you’re French I strongly recommend you to see this actress on a stand up show, she really is amazing!) I lately fell on a YouTube videos about 2cellos. I first was astonished by what I found. Those 2 guys are good and have a great sense of humour as far as I can see.

To show you what I’m talking about this a first cover of highway to hell with Steve Vai.

Crossing guitars and cello’s van be cool, but when you’re playing with Steve Vai it’s even cooler.

Another good video of a cover of Coldplay is

Well that was just to share with you 2, my readers 😉

Have a great day’s night.

Happy 25th to …

… not me unfortunately!

But To the first album of rage against the machine. One of the best opus ever done. To celebrate, enjoy this live performance from 1993 😎

Éteins la lumière 

Yo!

Ce soir, je ne vais pas vous parler du titre d’Axel Baker, encore que la reprise avec Jeanlouis Aubert est une bonne version. Je ne vais pas non plus vous dire qu’il faut faire des économies d’énergie pour sauver Walluk! Non je vais vous parler (une nouvelle fois) de rock n roll. Je vais vous parler de groove, de basse et de batterie. Je vais vous parler de Royal Blood.

Tonight, I’m not gonna talk to you about the single of our french legend Axel Bauer, though it was great when played with Jeanlouis Aubert. I’m not gonna tell you that you must economize energy to save Walluk! No, I’m going to talk about groove, bass and drums. I’m going to talk to you about Royal Blood

En effet, le duo de Brighton est de retour pour un 2e opus en juin. Ils viennent de sortir leur premier titre qui s’appelle Lights out. Il est dans la lignée de ce qu’ils ont fait jusque là: bien remuant, bien arrangé, bien construit, bien tout court! Le plus c’est peut être ces choeurs qui viennent apporter un peu plus de relief à l’ensemble. Et ce son de basse. Rhhhhaaaa. Pour une fois qu’un duo se passe de guitare, ça me fait toujours autant plaisir.

Actually, the duet from Brighton is back to release a new album in June. They just have us their last single Lights out. It’s the logical following of what they already did: moving, well constructed, well arranged and good in a few words. What’s new is maybe those choirs in the back which give more relief to the song. And that bass sound. Rhaaazz. Once a band doesn’t have some guitars makes me truly happy!

Enjoy buddies!
