After a nine year lag, it?s time to get back on the wagon with the powerful and long-awaited album Hang from punk rock mainstays Lagwagon. It?s not that the band broke up or even went on hiatus after releasing 2005?s Resolve. They?ve continued a robust tour schedule, and frontman Joey Cape has released a steady stream of original material as a solo artist and with his other projects Bad Astronaut, Scorpios, and Bad Loud (not to mention cranking out cover albums with his other other project Me First and the Gimme Gimmes). ?I?m writing all the time,? says Cape, ?but a lot of times it doesn?t feel appropriate for Lagwagon. It?s not who the band collectively is at the time, and the mold is constantly changing. Sometimes it takes a decade for all the stars to align!? That celestial harmonic convergence finally happened a few years ago when the band was on tour. ?The lightbulb over the head came on, and I knew what the record would sound like and what we?d be saying. It?s less of the ?90s punk rock style we?re known for. But this is the record my band wanted and needed to make.? Indeed, the overall sound of Hang is darker and more hard-charging than some of Lagwagon?s best-known work, as they address themes including loss, betrayal, aging, the environment, and the plight of the common man. It?s not a totally bleak picture, though: all that disconnectedness underscores the need to make emotional investments, ensuring that empathy doesn?t in fact become obsolete. The album also includes a musical tribute to Cape?s late best friend, collaborator, and frequent tour mate Tony Sly (No Use For A Name), who died in July 2012, just days after the two had wrapped what would be their final acoustic tour. The title of ?One More Song? draws from the closing chant of Sly?s solo track ?Liver Let Die,? but was directly inspired by a different song, one we?ll never be able to hear. ?The last few days we were on tour together, he was writing a song and he played it for me and it was amazing,? says Cape about the song?s inspiration. ?What happened to that song? I can?t remember it. I can?t recall it well enough to say ?this is the last song Tony wrote.? The band plan to release an arc of three singles with accompanying videos, but won?t be appearing in the clips themselves, opting to work with a creative team that will focus on their words rather than their faces. ?I think some of the coolest things you see on YouTube are lyric videos: so sophisticated. It?s filmmaking, it?s about how much vision the person has.? So you won?t see their faces on their YouTube channel, but there?s an easy way to check out the mugs of a band who once played 284 shows in a single year: on a stage near you once the album is released on October 28. ?This is the first record we?ve made in the history of the band that we wholeheartedly agree that we want to play every single song on the record live,? says Joey. ?It?ll be great to play new songs. Sheesh, please!?

10ccBiography (full version)Among the most inventive and influential bands in the history of popular music, 10cc are one of the very few acts to have achieved commercial, critical and creative success in equal measure. Testament to 10cc?s ongoing appeal, the band can count a generation straddling array of fellow artists, everyone from Chrissie Hynde to The Feeling?s Dan Gillespie and Axl Rose to Sophie Ellis Bextor, among their many millions of fans. I´m Not In Love, co-written by Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart, features prominently in the soundtrack to the 2014 blockbuster film Guardians of the Galaxy, which grossed $635 million in its first two months in US cinemas and spawned a No 1 album. Meanwhile, a key element of the soundtrack to 2010?s Facebook feature film The Social Network is Dreadlock Holiday, which is also the Sky Sports cricket reports theme in Australia.10cc has sold more than 30 million albums around the world and the band?s longevity is testament to their timeless songs, and reflecting Gouldman?s status as one of the world?s leading songwriters, he was inducted into America?s Songwriter?s Hall of Fame at a ceremony in New York in June. Previous inductees include Noel Coward, Burt Bacharach, Neil Sedaka, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Elton John and Sting.The band continues to traverse the globe and play countries as disparate as Iceland and South Africa, Latvia and Japan, as well as across Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Canada and the US. Following a 26-date UK tour in October-November, early 2019 will see the band play three concerts in Japan, before touring Denmark, Sweden and Norway, followed by a 15-date major city UK tour and the band?s first concert in Moscow. 10cc returns to the UK?s prestigeous, 5,200-capacity Royal Albert Hall in London on 2 May 2019.Gouldman attributes 10cc?s lasting appeal to the quality and individuality of the band?s songs. ?They don?t seem to date; they are original, we never followed any trend we simple wrote for our own pleasure. The fact that the songs are being played as often on the radio today as they ever were shows how true that is,? he says. /210cc Biography (full version) - page 210cc ruled the pop world at a time ? the 1970s ? when the charts were dominated by some of the most creative and colourful artistes in pop history. Unlike David Bowie, Queen, Elton John or Rod Stewart ? all of whom they stood shoulder-to-shoulder with for a decade ? 10cc?s energies were not centred on image or celebrity-status, but on creating highly sophisticated rock masterworks with mainstream appeal. Early influences on the band included The Beatles and the Beach Boys, but their palate proved wide. Says Gouldman: ?For me it was people like Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Jimmy Webb, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers. Eric [Stewart] was more rock ?n? roll, the blues and R&B; while Kevin [Godley] and Lol [Creme] were into more artistic and avant-garde acts including Jacques Brel. It?s what happened when we put all those things together that made 10cc.? The result was some of the greatest pop records of the 20th Century. From breakthrough hit Donna in 1972 to their final No 1, Dreadlock Holiday in 1978, via landmark releases including 1975 worldwide hit I?m Not In Love, 10cc stood for the kind of heightened pop sensibility achieved only by the very greatest music practitioners. As Rolling Stone magazine put it in 1975, ?There is more going on in one 10cc song than on the last ten Yes albums.?With hit song-writing credits with bands including the Yardbirds, Hollies and Herman?s Hermits under his belt, the early 1970s saw Gouldman and his compatriots reach new levels of creative endeavour. He spent time in New York writing for bubblegum kings Jerry Kazenetz and Jeff Katz., but fed up with being away from home, he returned to the UK to record the songs he had written Stateside with his friends at Strawberry Studios in Stockport. Back in Manchester, Stewart, Godley and Creme had also been busy, with Stewart testing a new four-track recorder that lead to the recording of Neanderthal Man, a track that went on to enjoy 14 weeks in the UK charts in 1970, peaking at No 2. The band was called Hotlegs and comprised Godley, Creme, Stewart, and briefly Gouldman.In1972 Gouldman?s manager Harvey Lisberg (later to become 10cc?s manager) met Neil Sedaka, who was playing a residency at Batley Variety Club in Yorkshire. Sedaka?s career was in decline and Lisberg suggested he worked with the guys at Strawberry. The result was Sedaka?s hit comeback album Solitaire, produced by Gouldman, Stewart, Godley and Creme, with Stewart acting as engineer.?We all learned so much from those sessions. Neil?s sheer professionalism, musicianship and song-writing were inspiring,? says Gouldman./310cc Biography (full version) - page 3 ?We?d done a few tracks and we needed a B-side for Waterfall [a Gouldman/Stewart composition]. There was a possibility that it would come out on the Apple label, which we were very excited about, because any connection with the Beatles was great,? says Gouldman. A Godley and Creme song, Donna, was chosen. ?We didn?t have a name for the band and weren?t bent on world domination or anything, but Donna made us sit up and notice ourselves, that we actually had something special.?And so 10cc was born, Donna became the A side and reached No 2 in the UK charts. Right from the start it was obvious they weren?t like other groups. All four could sing, were adept in the recording studio, and were seasoned musicians more interested in pleasing themselves than writing to a formula. Not long after Donna was released, Sedaka returned to Strawberry to record a second album, The Tra-La Days Are Over, with the same team, and his career took off again.10cc comprised essentially two song-writing camps, Gouldman and Stewart, plus Godley and Creme, although they would sometimes intermingle. ?Our principle was always the music,? says Gouldman, ?whatever?s best for the song. That means if I can sing better than you on it, that?s what happens. Or if Lol can play lead guitar better than you, he?ll do it. Consequently we had four singers in the band, four instrumentalists and four producers, plus Eric also engineered the sessions.?The other thing was whoever wrote the song, it kind of became the property of the four of us. You couldn?t say, ?That song is crap, I don?t want anything to do with it?. What you had to say was, ?I don?t like that part of the song, but I think we could make it better by doing this?. You always had to come up with something positive.??It was the combination of all four of us that made the difference, not only in the song-writing, but in the production values as well,? says Gouldman.Whether it?s the eight-minute pop opera Une Nuit a Paris, or the No.1 hit pop masterpiece I?m Not In Love, both from The Original Soundtrack (1975) album, no two 10cc records sound the same,?A very important element,? explains Gouldman, ?was we were completely self-contained. There wasn?t even a producer. If Eric was singing one of us would work the board. We used to just give the tracks straight to the record company.?Indeed, they didn?t even have a recognisable frontman. ?Eric was a very good-looking guy who took on the role quite often, and Lol was also brilliant out front. But you?d never know on the record who was playing guitar or even who was singing sometimes.?/410cc Biography (full version) - page 4The first time 10cc played live, at the Isle of Man Casino in 1973, they were taken aback at the response. ?We went onstage and girls started screaming! It was like, what the f**k is going on? We imagined ourselves as professors of pop who were going to give a lecture on pop music, but it wasn?t like that at all.?The critical plaudits also rolled in. Rolling Stone calling The Original Soundtrack, ?better than anything the Beach Boys have done of late?. The NME described I?m Not In Love as ?a John Lennon song with a Paul McCartney vocal?. In an age where critics spent an inordinate amount of time trying to identify the new Beatles, 10cc increasingly seemed to fit the bill.?Because we existed in our own world, we didn?t need anyone to tell us how good we were. We listened to the records and went, this is everything we want it to be and more.? Even after the astonishing success of I?m Not In Love, they refused to play the game and followed it up with the acidic Art For Art?s Sake ? and scored another Top 5 hit.?Art for art?s sake, money for God?s sake, was something my late father used to say to me, although he wasn?t cynical like that at all ? he was very artistic. But it?s such a lovely phrase. Eric had this riff and I just started singing that, and the song came.?The biggest surprise of all was the departure of Godley and Creme after their next album, How Dare You? ?It was horrible,? Gouldman confesses. ?It was an absolute disaster. Like getting a divorce.?Godley and Creme had become preoccupied with the Gizmotron ? from the word ?gizmo? ? a device they had invented which when applied could bring new sounds and textures out of an electric guitar. Obsessed with devising a showcase for it, they began recording a triple album together, Consequences.Says a reflective Gouldman now, ?Kev and I, who stayed quite close, have talked about this since and have decided what should have happened; he and Lol should have gone go off and done their thing for a year or so, then allowed 10cc to resume. ?But that?s just not how things were done in the ?70s. No one had a year off. Plus I think the record company were probably expecting another album, tours were booked and so on.?Instead, Gouldman and Stewart continued as 10cc and scored more notable successes with their next two albums, Deceptive Bends (1977) ? featuring their next worldwide hit single Things We Do For Love ? and Bloody Tourists (1978), which spawned another international hit, Dreadlock Holiday.?We were on a mission to prove ourselves,? says Gouldman, ?This wasn?t like a couple of guys leaving the band who just played their instruments. This was two of the producers going, two of the singers going, two of the songwriters going. So it was a real 50 percent gone.?Ultimately, the split took its toll and when Stewart was badly injured in a car crash in 1979, the writing was on the wall. /510cc Biography (full version) - page 5?It flattened me completely,? Stewart later recalled. ?I damaged my left ear and eye very badly. I couldn´t go near music. I couldn´t go near anything loud and I love music and motor-racing. I had to stay away from both things for a long time [and] the momentum of this big machine that we´d had rolling slowed and slowed and slowed. And on the music scene, the punk thing had come in a big way.?All four original members enjoyed very successful post-10cc careers. Godley and Creme continued as a partnership, recording their own hit records and becoming Grammy-winning video directors for acts including Ultravox, The Police, Duran Duran and Frankie Goes To Hollywood. Stewart collaborated on three Paul McCartney albums in the 1980s and continues to record sporadically as a solo artiste, his most recent collection being Viva La Difference in 2009.Meanwhile Gouldman spent the 1980s concentrating on recording soundtracks for films such as Farah Fawcett?s Sunburn and the American animation Animalympics. He also worked as a producer with The Ramones and Gilbert O?Sullivan. He then formed Wax with American songwriter Andrew ?Lonely Boy? Gold and had hits with Right Between The Eyes and Bridge To You Heart.There were two final Gouldman-Stewart directed 10cc albums in the ?90s, the first ... Meanwhile (1992), featured contributions from both Godley and Creme, while the last, Mirror Mirror (1995), despite featuring contributions from McCartney and Gold, was more a collection of Gouldman and Stewart solo songs. That same year, 10cc received a BMI citation for three million plays on US radio for I?m Not In Love (since risen to five million). This followed the BMI citation for two million plays (since risen to 3.5m) of Things We Do For Love,In 2002, the 30th anniversary of the band?s debut hit Donna, 10cc began to creep back into the national consciousness. With Gouldman fronting a new touring band, a 28-date UK tour was followed by a series of one-off events across Europe. The band have continued to regularly tour the world ever since. In 2006, Universal records released the TV-advertised, double CD 10cc: Greatest Hits ? And More, and the following year national newspaper the Mail On Sunday produced a special 10-track, cover-mount Best of 10cc Live CD, distributing more than 2.4 million copies throughout the UK and Ireland. The paper reported that sales rose by 232,000 on the day of publication.For the band?s 40th anniversary year in 2012, Universal Records released a new five-CD box set entitled Tenology, featuring 80 tracks chosen by the four original band members.A world tour took 10cc as far and wide as Iceland and Australia, and saw them play London?s Royal Albert Hall for the first time. The landmark concert saw Kevin Godley guest on several numbers including a capella version of Donna./610cc Biography (full version) - page 6After 50 concerts with 10cc that year, Gouldman decided to tour as an acoustic outfit, Heart Full of Songs, which included10cc?s Rick Fenn, Mick Wilson and Mike Stevens. Their set included hits Gouldman wrote for The Hollies, Herman?s Hermits, the Yardbirds and film soundtracks, along with material from his new solo album Love And Work.In 2013, 10cc joined Status Quo for a tour of UK arenas, including London?s 20,000-capacity The O2. In the years since, the band have toured in Australia, Ireland Japan, New Zealand across the UK and Europe and at London?s 60,000-capacity British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park.?Year on year we get busier and busier. It?s great, we love touring and playing together and we get on really well. The audiences these days are very gratifying. You get the people you would expect, who grew up with 10cc, but you also get young kids who know the songs too,? says Gouldman. With four decades of song-writing excellence and a crack band of musicians behind him Gouldman confidently promises, ?This is as near as you?re ever going to get to hearing the perfect 10cc. Hit after hit after hit. It?s relentless. We show no mercy.?The live band?s line-up is:Graham Gouldman-bass, guitars, vocalsRick Fenn - lead guitar, vocals, bass guitarPaul Burgess - drums, percussionIain Hornal - vocals, percussion, guitar, keyboardsKeith Hayman - keyboards, guitar, bass, vocalsPaul has worked with 10cc from the beginning and Rick joined the live band in the mid-?70s. 10cc ?

AUF GASTSPIELREISE IM FEBRUAR 2018! Die Country-Rock-Band aus Florida präsentiert ihr brandneues Studioalbum!nnThe Mavericks sind eine in Florida beheimatete Country-Rock-Band. Die Leidenschaft für Schallplatten der Rock- n -Roll-Ära brachte die Band Ende der 980er Jahre in Miami zusammen. Jeder hatte bereits in verschiedenen Bands Erfahrung gesammelt. Als The Mavericks machte die Gruppe sich zunächst im Großraum Miami einen Namen als Liveband. Das zweite Album What a Crying Shame brachte 1994 den Durchbruch. Es verkaufte sich in den USA über eine Million Mal und wurde dort mit Platin ausgezeichnet. Auch das nächste Album, Music for All Occasions war erfolgreich und erhielt Gold in Amerika und Silber in England. Die Gruppe erhielt zahlreiche Auszeichnungen, darunter einen Grammy und zwei CMA Awards als Vocal Group of the Year . Das von dem mit Platin prämierten Album Trampoline ausgekoppelte Dance the Night Away erreichte den 4. Platz in den britischen Singlecharts, der dazugehörige Videoclip wurde auch in Deutschland sehr oft in den Popmusiksendern gespielt. Der für eine Countryband eher untypische Sound mit einer harten Rhythmusgruppe und der an Roy Orbison erinnernden Stimme ihres kubanischstämmigen Frontmanns Raul Malo hatten hierzu entscheidenden Anteil. The Mavericks: Raul Malo: Vocals, Electric and Acoustic Guitar / Paul Deakin: Drums / Eddie Perez: Electric Guitar, Backing Vocals / Jerry Dale McFadden: Piano, Organ, Backing Vocals Featuring the Fantastic Four: Michael Guerra: Accordions, Percussion, Acoustic / Guitar, Backing Vocals / Max Abrams: Saxophone, Percussion / Matt Cappy: Trumpet / Ed Friedland: Upright Bass TRACKS: 1. Rolling Along 2. Brand New Day 3. Easy as It Seems 4. I Think of You 5. Goodnight Waltz 6. Damned (If You Do) 7. I Will Be Yours 8. Ride with Me 9. I Wish You Well 10. For the Ages

Wunderbare bluesy & folky Singer / Songwriter - Entdeckung! Ruhig, akustisch, arachaisch, atmosphärisch & tief.nnWunderbare bluesy & folky Singer / Songwriter - Entdeckung! Erscheint auf dem Label von Scoobius Pip. Ruhig, akustisch, arachaisch, atmosphärisch & tief. Oh No. The Drift Of The World is a debut album that doesn't feel the need to shout loudly. In fact, it's probably one of the most stirringly intimate records you'll hear all year, a collection of bluesy, folky acoustic songs largely consisting of guitar and hushed, smoky voice, performed by the somewhat mysterious Jackamo Brown. The album comes in two 18-minute parts, with ambient recordings linking and running through the tracks. It's an anti-shuffle record, its mood, feel and ethos coming from another, simpler time. Recorded and produced YILA at Empire Studios in Hackney and mastered by Mandy Parnell at Black Saloon. The recording was basic: just a mic gaffer taped to Brown's guitar, a mic for his vocals and some room mics for capturing the street noise bleeding in through open windows and the guitar and organ that feature on three tracks. Further ambient sounds were recorded after the session by Jackamo in his local area. Influenced by Bert Jansch, Dylan and Arthur Lee, whose Five String Serenade is covered on the album, Brown began recording music seven years ago, having written songs in private for years before that. Many of the tracks on the album date back to that time. The most dominant theme from the listener's perspective, I think, is of love lost or relinquished, says Brown. There are other cheery subjects like death and alienation thrown in too, as well as quiet nods to Russian Literature and Lorem Ipsum. The idea of releasing the tracks did not come naturally to the reluctant performer. I never had any intention of pursuing a music career, says Brown. I still have no real desire to earn a living through music, or earn a living at all really. I have some issues with selling your art but there is enough distance between me now and the Jackamo of the songs and I jumped at the opportunity to give them a physical form.The offer to do so came from Scroobius Pip, who releases the album on his Speech Develpment Records label. In the age of everyone knowing everything about everyone I was weirdly excited by the fact that, if you Google Jackamo Brown you find very little, says the poet/rapper. As a fan of his work, I wanted to get some of his music recorded together, in one collection and as one piece. Outside of music, Jackamo Brown occasionally works in libraries. I always choose time over money and so spend the majority of my time dedicated to philosophy, literature and music and convincing myself that poverty is noble. I studied philosophy to post-graduate level and I am about ready to start work on a book. One thing you shouldn't expect to see is Jackamo Brown performing live. I have never wanted the particular sort of attention that goes with a stage performance or the applause of a crowd (assuming anyone might applaud), he says. I did a live session of sorts for Jon Hillcock and played a live set at the Leigh Folk Festival in order to be sure I was not just rationalising a fear of performing live. I may, of course, change my mind down the line. We suspect he'll find many new devotees who hope he does. TRACKS: PART ONE: 1. Dust In My Veins 2. In My Time 3. When She Comes 4. Five String Serenade 5. Elena-Jane PART TWO: 6. Prayer For Slow Death 7. Cara Silas 8. Lay Low 9. Loren Ipsum 10. Then I Go 11. Till One Morning Everything Burned

Master's Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 100%, Humboldt-University of Berlin (English Department), language: English, abstract: This is a book about Burning Man - its history as a re-enactment of the American Frontier and its cultural significance and symbolism for the post-modern, post-western, post-rational society. As a European, Burning Man has always struck me as an event of the Wild West where almost everything was possible and acceptable and where a community reinvented civilization anew. Like the typical Western stories and movies, Burning Man is a story of humble beginnings in the isolation of the desert. The growth from a primitive to complex society seen in the numerous institutions and services we see today in Black Rock City was also accompanied by a surge in rules to safeguard the health and well being of its citizens. Therefore, Burning Man serves as an echo-land of the American Frontier myth. At the same time, Burning Man is the event of the 21st century that foretells the undergoing changes of Western society and mankind. After 3000 years of left-brain-hemisphere dominance induced by the phonetic alphabet and later typography, the age of electric and electronic media finally brought us back to right-hemisphere modes of perception and cognition. Participation and a new emphasis on ritual are just two examples of this new awareness wherein the space/time dimensions have changed dramatically from linear to acoustic. With this essay I want to give something back to the Burning Man community and hope that maybe some feel inspired to think of Burning Man in a new historical and global context. Anyone interested in American history and the countercultural precedence of Burning Man as well as Burning Man as the Marshall McLuhan's Global Theater will definitely find some interesting insights. This is the master thesis as part of my American Studies Program at Humboldt-University in Berlin. I would love to receive some feedback! Please write me an email at rondeejola@gmail.com! Thank you all, Ronny Diehl, August 2010.

Cooper's dead. But what's a nerd to do when Heaven doesn't believe in technology, and hell's hotter than an overclocked CPU? Panicking and running away back to Earth seems a perfectly logical reaction, especially since his beloved computer hasn't come with him. Of course, what to do then is a bit of a puzzle that only Linda can solve. This is a very short book - novelette length - around 10 000 words or 40 (print) pages. Warning: Contains frequent foul language, adult themes, nerd-speak and Aussie insults. Not suitable for children. Cooper says: 'I'm dead. 'This is sorta ####ing me off. 'I don't know what happened, though. One moment I was on my way to visit my girlfriend with a big bunch of flowers, and the next I saw a big bright light and a cloud and a crowd of dudes in dresses carrying harps. Holy ####, I thought, I'm dead! Then I thought - #####, that looks like a church choir, all low-tech and acoustic and stuff. That's not where I wanna be. Bet they don't have a single computer, or if they do it's like a 386 or something, all filled with dustbunnies. There's no way I'm getting stuck in a low-tech shiny place like that with acoustic music everywhere. That's a freaky version of hell. #### no. So I ran, or flew or something the #### away, and now I'm back home and I'm still dead. 'I think maybe my girlfriend killed me.' Linda says: 'Oh Lord, a few stubbies short of a sixpack as well as too dumb to go to heaven. This one's gonna be a barrel of fun. ' Krystal says: 'I can't believe the stupid little ######## thinks I did him in. Now I wish like #### that I had. What the #### is wrong with him? ####ing self-absorbed moron, can't believe he killed himself through arrant stupidity, so he's got to blame the only person who ever put up with him for more than five ####ing minutes.'
