13. Apr. 2014, 19:04 von Marco_CultHello, everybody!
My name is Marco, let me thank you for being here, whether intentionally or by chance.
I’ve been on Last.fm for quite a while and I want to tell you something about me.
First of all, you might be wondering why and how I came across Last.fm
Well, the story isn’t much of a big deal; anyway, I guess it all began when I started playing guitar, I was just fifteen.
You’ve got to know I’m not one of those people born into an “artistic” family and into art and stuff ever since they’re young children, first approaching an instrument at an early age and receiving formal training. My parents are both school teachers, they don’t play any instrument, they aren’t musical enthusiasts either: they’re simple, common people. In case you didn’t know I come from Italy and, to be honest, I don’t like Italian music very much, I prefer by far English and American music to ours. Luckily, my parents had a number of foreign LP records and tapes (ahh, the good, old analogue days!) which they used to listen to when I was a little boy…

18. Mär. 2013, 15:49 von MrBusDriverI have a strong memory of how it happened, the very day when my life was changed by music. It was 1977 and I was 12 years old and up until that day music for me was the jingly “hooray for everything” effervescence of the radio in our house witch was permanently stuck on an AM channel that projected either rainbows and happiness or maudlin sentimentality.
My brother’s friend was driving us to the local squash courts for our Friday night game, he slammed in an audio cassette and with no other introduction than “listen to this” he turned the knob to full volume. There was a loud hissing silence, a quiet guitar warm up then a full throated voice like none I had heard before.
Hey hey mama said the way you move,
Gon' make you sweat, gon' make you groove.
Ah-ah child way you shake that thing,
Gon' make you burn, gon' make you sting.
Wow, just wow, I was pinned to the back seat by the sheer force of the vocal and guitar. It was without a doubt the most exciting thing that I had encountered in my short life. …

We lost another female blues singer to the demons that she dredged from her soul so that she could sing them to us. Magnified and Sanctified is God's great name. Amy Winehouse followed in the tradition of Bessie Smith and Janis Joplin, but male blues greats mostly have better longevity.
In the 1950s recordings by the early blues greats were seen as almost worthless by white America. Consequently they arrived in British ports as ballast on returning cargo ships, where they reached a new audience in the British youth and gave rise to great bands like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. (This is almost an exact mirror of the way that the unwanted old prints by artists like, Hiroshige, Utamoro and Hokusai, were similarly used as ballast, and in the ports of France reached the eyes of many young artists, including Gaugin, Van Gogh and Toulouse-Lautrec).
The British blend of blues and pop became the 'British Invasion' of the US charts. …
