Day 1.

17 Mar

Thanks for visiting. It’s my first day on the blog and I’m happy you could look in.

The content I’ll be producing for ReVerb is basically old or new stuff which I pick up on and find interesting. I hope you get some benefit from it and I look forward to being part of the community!

 I’ll be posting also in German once I get the hang of things here – so I’ll let you know a.s.a.p.

Please let me know what you think (without being too abusive) in the near future. Look forward to sharing and hearing from you.

Once I Was An Eagle

Is the new Album release by Laura Marling, due for out on 27th May.  Her last body of brilliance; A Creature I Don’t Know, in 2011 was critically acclaimed and needless to say I am a big fan of all her music. Check out her website: www.lauramarling.com PLUS If you like her, you may be partial to a bit of the following: the likes of Joni Mitchell, Cat Power, Ryan Adams, Beth Orton.

Dr Feelgood’s Wilko Johnsons bows out in true style

Wilko Johnson (born John Peter Wilkinson, 12 July 1947) is making his farewell tour. The musician announced the tour after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Full interview can be found on: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-21187740

Wilco Johnson, also singer of his namesake band – was greatly known as guitarist with Dr Feelgood in the 1970s. Johnson and Dr Feelgood have been credited as one of the founding influences- or the DNA of the English punk movement. He is also associated with Ian Dury and the Blockheads  and guest musician of the Stranglers to boot. Milk And Alcohol being one the best known Feelgood songs, here via You Tube for your great pleasure.

MARK EITZEL

Cluny, Newcastle (28.2.13),

The local Tyneside duo, Mush supported Mark Eitzel at the Cluny in February, who I’m afraid I have to make a mention of the Roger Knox blog: http://www.nodepression.com/profiles/blogs/mark-eitzel-at-the-jumping-hot-club-cluny-newcastle

Gem Andrews does indeed write and play great songs – But the song Ladybird mentioned in his piece was actually written by Nicky Rushton of Mush. So now we’ve got that out the way…

My current affliction – albeit a good one, was the main, Mark Eitzel and Band.

Having not heard anything by him before, I was bit baffled by his performance. The amazing beginning to the show were thwarted half way by his intermission story about the ‘bitch’ behind the counter of a bakery who wouldn’t smile or fain niceties while he bought a croissant. At this stage you think; OK, if he’s not a sad lad he wouldn’t be carrying that little jewel around in his pocket to reproduce on stage. This anecdote was one of the couple small evils he delivered between songs. But having just slagged him for that, the band were a little worse for wear due to injuries endured over the 2 months of their touring. Eitzel had a toe injury and the drummer was playing with a cast on one arm. Perhaps fatigue was running thick and patience thin.

His music is brilliant, the likes of Rufus along with sister Martha are of a similar genre- he also reminded me a smidgin of Tim Buckley  – his audience – mainly men, were whooped up by his mere presence and were obviously seasoned fans. But for his stories, sorry, wasn’t impressed.

My very last pet peeve was listening to his CDs. The rawness, guts and sincerity of his on-stage performance seemed to be virtually non existent on CD Don’t Be A Stranger – it’s polished, ironed out and very produced sounding, leaving his music somehow faint in strength and without grit, which I missed very much after hearing him live. Having said all of that I would definitely go see him in concert again.

His latest Album, Don’t Be A Stranger, came out 2012.

JUDEE SILL

I visited Mark Eitzels blog (http://markeitzel.blogspot.ch/) and found he too is a fan of  Judee Sill.

Judee Sill

Judee Sill

Born 4th October 1944, daughter to publican father – who died of pneumonia when Sill was 8 years old, and alcoholic mother. Judee Sill – while still under age fled the family home, ill-equipped for the life that followed, she illegally married under-age, which was consequently annulled – her demons later led her to armed robbery, prostitution and drugs – the latter killing her in 1979. She was 35 years old when she died of a drug overdose, after fighting her addiction for some time.

Sill, her appearance Librarian-esque, is one of the relatively unsung heroines that didn’t make it. All her attempts to get clean and promote her music were an uphill struggle but David Geffen from Asylum Records took her on his books – she was the first artist to sign to Asylum – then came the likes of Joni Mitchell, Carol King Linda Ronstadt. Graham Nash produced Sills’ first song for Asylum: Jesus Was A Cross Maker. She was an equal to her contemporaries and produced similar style of Singer Songwriter melodies, though Sills’ songs seemed to me more spiritual in comparison. After she wrote Jesus … she was quoted to say, “If I had not written that song, there would have remained only suicide.”

Many artists have since covered the song and other material of hers, among others The Hollies and Judie Tzuke. I leave you with the original and in honour of a true cross bearer.
