TUNES OF THE WEEK
Where we catch up on what we've been listening to at BLITZ..(1) The Dead Brothers
The band started in 1998 in Geneva, Switzerland. They mix many styles on his albums: gypsy jazz, bluegrass folk, blues, rock and roll, punk ... and the result is always unusual and fantastic. Nine tubas at once on stage! Call themselves as rock'n'roll orchestra funeral. Wunderkammer is their fourth album.
(2) The Sacred Mushroom
An American band from Cincinnati, Ohio, led by Larry Hoshorn (guitar and vocals) and his brother Danny Goshorn (vocals), originally a blues rock quintet. This is your unique LP, which contains memorable covers of songs like "I'm Not Like Everybody Else" by the Kinks, and tracks like "Catatonic Lover", whose sound resembles "3/5 's of a Mile in 10 Seconds", by Jefferson Airplanle. The longest track of the album is "Lifeline", which recalls the seminal blues bands like Fleetwood Mac "Mean Old World" is another cover, this John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. The album was reissued by Larry in 1995 after many years circulating as a pirate recording in Europe.
(3) The Kinks
Formed in Muswell Hill by brothers Ray and Dave Davies in 1964 The Kinks need no introduction. Categorized in the United States as a British Invasion band, The Kinks are recognized as one of the most important and influential rock groups of his generation. The music came from influences from varied styles, including rhythm and blues, British music hall, folk and country.
4) Father John Misty
J. Tillman is a singer, campositor, American folk guitarist and drummer. He is a former member of the indie rock bands Saxon Shore and Fleet Foxes. On May 1, 2012 Joshua released this album under his new alias: 'Father John Misty'. Perhaps liberated by the new pseudonym or encouraged by his office nearly four years as a Fleet Foxes, Tillman reveals a wilder side and has produced what may be their best album so far. The songs on this disc are more social, engaging and even funnier. Fear Fun is the eighth album by J. Tillman, and first as Father John Misty.
(5) Bo Diddley
This marvel of blues and rock and roll was born in 1928 and turned Ellas McDaniel Bo Diddley. His greatest influence was John Lee Hooker. He is best known for the "Bo Diddley beat," a rumba beat half, giving their songs an instantly recognizable differential.
The Bo Diddley album 1958 is the first compilation album on vinyl. "Pretty Thing" and "Hush Your Mouth" withstand repeat listening..
