    While U Were Out - It's Always You (song review) |self-released, 2014| 4/5

    while u were out (also known as TWPHMusic) is a composing and recording British duo founded in 2013 and consisting of Trevor Wiles (keyboards) and Paul Hadler (vocals & guitar). Both musicians however, have already been writing music collectively for over 10 years.

    While U Were Out’s debut single titled 'It's Always You' was released in mid-2014. It’s a pop-rock song with hit potential. It begins with a grungy-dirty rhythm guitar riff that is soon joined by another riff, tuned up higher to build a contrast. Drums and bass come next. The vocals are rather high, clear, initially quite gentle, getting emotional in choruses.

    Most listeners prefer music they've already heard before in terms of melodies or arrangements. Thus, they are more eager to learn about and buy songs recorded in a style similar to the ones they already know. The composition and arrangements here were written with a classical approach. …

    Bicie nástroje majú pôvod v ďalekej histórii a boli využívané hlavne pre kultové účely. Pre mňa osobne vždy predstavovali hudobný nástroj rituálneho charakteru. Zvuky úderov, rytmické finesy a neuchopiteľná energia, ktorá sa z nich dá vytrieskať, dokážu navodiť posvätnú atmosféru.

    Šamanské praktiky v 20. storočí pretavili rockoví bubeníci do umenia, aké sa hneď tak nevidí. Chápem, že veľa ľudí ich sóla nemá príliš v láske a označujú ich za samoúčelné a nudné. Podľa môjho názoru je to pravé okorenenie hudby a hneď po klávesových exhibíciách predstavujú neopakovateľný zážitok každého albumu či koncertu. Dokonca ich vo svojom rebríčku staviam pred gitarové sóla, ktoré sú u mňa až na štvrtom mieste (tretie obsadila basgitara).

    Budem rád, ak niekto opraví doposiaľ zaužívaný názor o tom, že prvé bubenícke sólo na albume predviedol Ginger Baker z kapely Cream (skladba „Toad“…

    Wed 17 Mar – The Australian Pink Floyd Show

    17. März 2010 - Berlin - Tempodrom
    The Australian Pink Floyd Show

    Ein tiefer dumpfer Pulsschlag dröhnt aus den Boxen, die Luft bleibt weg, die ersten Haare stellen sich auf. Ein virtuelles Känguru betritt die Bühne und wühlt im Plattenschrank. Mit der '72er Scheibe "The Dark Side Of The Moon" wird es auch sofort fündig. Das Publikum ist längt synchronisiert mit dem EKG auf der Leinwand - dann die Erlösung: "Breathe, breathe in the air... Don't be afraid to care!". So ungefähr müssen sich viele gefühlt haben als die Götter des Artrock die Bühne des gut gefüllten Tempodroms in Berlin betreten haben, aber Moment mal, sind nicht leider schon zwei Fünftel Pink Floyd von uns gegangen? Aber wer sich das von Anfang an hartnäckig eingebildet hat und während des Konzerts die Augen nicht geöffnet hätte, ja der wäre wahrscheinlich in dem Glauben geblieben bei einem Pink Floyd Konzert gewesen zu sein, denn Götter sterben nie…

  • Заметка #2 (О словах из трёх букв)

    5 Apr 2009, 10:20 by jeether

    Свободная система тэгов когда-нибудь погубит Last.fm*

    * Долго удивлялся, откуда у меня в рекомендациях так часто всплывает какой-то негритянский хип-хоп-гоп-стоп, пока не решил разобраться в чём же дело. Оказалось вот что. В 1983 году клавишник Пинк Флойда Richard Wright сходил «налево» и с другими товарищами создал группу Zee. Группа выпустила один альбом и успешно разбежалась. Zee на Last.fm отмечена как схожая с музыкантами David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Roger Waters, Pink Floyd и поэтому вовсе не удивительно, что она попала в мои рекомендации. Однако, неведомые алгоритмы подбора музыки на этом сайте, со свойственным им чувством юмора, вместо моего Zee подсунули мне вот этот Zee — какого-то негра, решившего тоже назваться этим словом из трёх букв. Тут можно даже не слушать тридцатисекундные превьюшки (прослушки?), достаточно одного взгляда на обложку альбома.

    Такая же история была у меня и с пианистами Esbjörn Svensson Trio, которые иногда сокращают своё название до лаконичных трёх букв: e. …
  • Music connections with Cambridge, UK

    1 Nov 2008, 14:54 by thefentiger

    I wrote this journal a while ago with the intention of compiling a list of all the music connections of my hometown. It's not quite complete and needs editing, but thought I'd add it to Last FM anyway (and hopefully I can edit it afterwards!). Here we go....

    PINK FLOYD

    Pink Floyd Members Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Richard Wright, Nick Mason. Many of the bands album covers were designed by Storm Thorgerson.

    Syd Barrett

    Syd Barrett (Roger Keith Barrett) born in Cambridge on 6 January 1946. He attended the Morely Memorial School, Hills Road where he became friends with Roger Waters. He later attended Cambridgeshire High School for Boys, Hills Road. During this time he met David Gilmour who was attending The Perse School also in Hills Road. One of the founding members of Pink Floyd Syd recorded two albums with the band The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (released 1967) and A Saucerful of Secrets (released 1968). On leaving Pink Floyd in 1968 he recorded two solo…

  • Song Of The Day - 06 Sep 2008: If

    Pink Floyd / If / Atom Heart Mother (2) / Oct 1970

    Happy 65th Birthday to George Roger Waters! (...and #38 to me!)

    http://www.tabletpc2.com/Graphics/Other%20Photos/Roger%20Waters/RogerWaters-Main.jpg

    The second side of their first UK #1 album featured a song from each one of the main songwriters, as well as closing out with a 13-minute suite arranged mainly by Nick Mason.

    I thought Roger's song was the best selection for this time of year over any of his solo works, and especially good for our shared birthday, when I typically do a lot of introspective thinking:

    "When that fat old sun in the sky is falling /
    Summer evenin' birds are calling /
    Children's laughter in my ears /
    The last sunlight disappears /
    And if you sit don't make a sound /
    Pick your feet up off the ground /
    And if you hear as the warm night falls /
    The silver sound from a time so strange /
    Sing to me, sing to me /
    When that fat old sun in the sky is falling"

Tak właśnie, świetny. Może tylko niektórych mógłby znużyć odrobinę w środkowej swej części, ale to jedynie mięczaków i rozwielitki. …
