Desecration

Ayer una nueva banda publicó el primero de sus trabajos. Se trata de Desecration, una joven banda thrashmetalera de Viladecans. Joven porque acaba de publicar su primer tema y joven por la edad de sus componentes: Albert Marcé, Christian Rodríguez y Lucas Melcón.

Para quienes les hemos conocido, sabemos que ha sido un largo camino. Años de trabajo, de práctica, de ilusiones y frustraciones; un tiempo durante el cual han mantenido un equipo de trabajo que culmina con un primer tema lleno de fuerza.

El tema ha sido grabado por ellos con las herramientas disponibles y hay que felicitarles por la calidad de un trabajo amateur y artesanal como el que han realizado.

Podríamos ahora extendernos en la caña de la entrada, en los cambios del primer minuto, en la letra, la voz que la lanza, los solos, ese estribillo llamado a ser gritado en los conciertos o en ese final... pero lo dejaremos para otro día.

Ahora toca que visitéis su MySpace, que está muy trabajado, por cierto, que escuchéis su primer tema y que permanezcáis atentos a sus siguientes pasos.

Desecration toman su nombre del tema "Desecration of my youth" de Steelgar, del álbum "Beware", cuya letra incluimos al final.

Estamos seguros de que Desecration nos darán mucho de que hablar en el futuro.


Yesterday, a new band launched his first record. We are talking about Desecration, a young thrash metal band from Viladecans, Barcelona, Spain. Young because they are publishing their first work ans ypung also because the age of the members: Albert Marcé, Christian Rodríguez y Lucas Melcón.

Those of us who knew them during the past years we know there has been a long way for them. years of hard working, illusions, frustrations; a long way they have travelled keeping the team work that has released a first strong and kick ass song.

That song has been recorded by themselves and we must congratulate them for the final quality of a work so amateur and handcrafted..

Now we could start talking about the powerfull start, the rithm canges in the first minute, the lyrics, the voice who throws it, the guitar solos, the chorus made to be shout in live performances, the final... but we will wait.

By now, we suggest you to visit their MySpace, well worked, to hear their first song and to wait for more news.

Desecratioon took their name from the de Steelgar song "Desecration of my youth" from their álbum "Beware" (we include the lyrics of that song at the end).

We are quite sure Desecration will offer a lot of things to talk and write in the next future.


Desecration: Face your fear
Confused, controlled
Everyday for all
Thrashed, smashed
Destroyed at last

Scared!
Society is hunting you
Scared!
It's raping your youth
Scared!
Never saying the truth


Scared!
Society is hunting you
Scared!
It's raping your youth
Scared!
They're fucking you

Life's
not easy but now you have to

Face! your fear
Accept! your war


Killing your demons
Starting to fight
Breaking the law
Living to fuck!

What are you waiting for?
What do you think that we're waiting for?

Face! your fear
Accept! your war

Happy Left-Handers Day!


Me he enterado vía Elentir, que se ha enterado vía Microsiervos de que hoy es el día de los zurdos. Y como en esta casa hay más zurdos que diestros...

Y aprovechando que hay unos pocos músicos zurdos...

Dick Dale & Steveie Ray Vaughan: Pipeline


Otro zurdo: Billy Ray Cyrus - 'Achy Breaky Heart'


Albert King - Blues Power


Tony Iommi-Lita Ford-Paranoid/Heaven and Hell (Capital Theater Passiac,N.J.)

Rock 'n Roll is Here to Stay

Está muy bien mirar al pasado y hacerlo con esa especie de alegría casi insultante con que lo hacían y siguen haciendo Sha-Na-Na, una de las bandas más divertidas que recuerdo.
Rock 'n Roll is Here to Stay (1970-07-04) Canada

En 1948 nació Scott Powell, conocido como Tony Santini en la serie de TV. Ahora Scott "is a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon, and with partner Bill Stetson, founded Stetson Powell Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, which has two locations in California. He provides such services as tennis elbow release, arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and total shoulder replacement. He serves in many capacities in the medical field, including being active in the Arthroscopy Association of North America, the American Orthopedic Society of Sports Medicine, and the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. Powell is Team Physician for the United States Soccer Federation Women’s National Team, and is on the medical staffs of both the U.S. Soccer National Team and the United States Olympic Committee, and on the Board of Directors of United Cerebral Palsy. He is also Associate Clinical Professor at the USC Keck School of Medicine."
Buddy Holly homenajeado por unos geniales Sha-Na-Na

Q. When did Sha Na Na get started?
A. Sha Na Na began as an a capella group called the Kingsmen on the campus of Columbia University in New York back in 1969. The group originally performed a variety of songs, but the music of the '50s proved to be so popular that the members decided to stick to the oldies and Sha Na Na was born.

Q. How many original members of Sha Na Na are still with the group?
A. You'll see a lot of familiar faces in Sha Na Na's current lineup, including Jocko Marcellino, Screamin' Scott Simon, and Donny York. They've been joined by several talented musicians including Reggie Battise, Buzz Campbell, Jim Waldbillig and Paulie Kimbarow.

Duke of earl, pura magia

Q. Sha Na Na Alumni - Where Are They Now??

A. As far as we know:

Lennie Baker retired at the beginning of "2000" and resides in his home state of Massachusetts on the Island of Martha's Vineyard with Tess, his Jack Russell Terrier.

Scott “Santini” Powell is now an orthopedic surgeon in the L.A. area.

Denny Greene studied law after leaving the group and has worked as a college professor around the country.

Johnny Contardo was working as a journalist in the L.A. area.

Rob Leonard is currently Professor of Linguistics and Swahili
(undoubtedly the only Swahili professor to have played at Woodstock!)
at Hofstra University on Long Island, New York.

Original bass singer Alan Cooper (singing At The Hop in the Woodstock film) went on to be a professor of theology at the Jewish Theological Seminary.

Jon “Bowzer” Bauman lives with his family in the L.A. area and still tours as a solo act singing and hosting shows.

“Dirty Dan” Mc Bride is staying busy in Hollywood as an actor, voice-over artist, singer and guitarist. He maintains an active website. Also beware of Danny of Sha Na Na imposters. Danny McBride was the ONLY Danny ever to be part of Sha Na Na.

Original lead guitarist, Chris Donald a.k.a. “Vinnie Taylor” and bassist David “Chico” Ryan have passed away (1974 and 1998 respectively). Their great talent and energy have been missed. Sadly there is Vinnie imposter out there tainting the memory of our friend. There was only ONE Vinnie Taylor and he rocked!

Three of the early Sha Na Na guitarists attained some notoriety. Henry Gross wrote, sang and had a hit: Shannon, Elliot “Ronzoni” Randell played lead on Steely Dan’s Are You Reeling In The Years and Elliot “Gino” Cahn went on to manage the rock group Green Day.

Leo Fender (100 años)

Leo Fender nació hace 100 años.
Clarence Leonidas Fender, better known as "Leo Fender" is the creator and inventor of the world famous "Fender Guitar". Some of the world's greatest musicians prefer to play none other than a "Fender Guitar". Leo Fender was born August 10, 1909 on his parents farm in Anaheim, CA. In Leo's spare time he enjoyed repairing electronic equipment. During high school, Leo decided to pursue a professional career in accounting. By the early 1930's Leo married his wife Esther Klosky and worked as an accounted for the State of California Highway Department in San Louis Obispon. When the great depression hit Leo unfortunately lost his job.

Leo who was an extreamly resourceful and creative man decided to start his own business. He borrowed six hundred dollars and opened an equipment repair shop called Fender Radio Service. Eventually Leo got involved in the guitar and amplifier business as well. Leo soon found his true passion in life, this ending up making him a very successful entrepreneur. Leo re-invent and improve on the technology of the electric guitar. His new guitar had a cutting edge sound which ended up revolutionizing and changing the face of the music industry. In his later years, Leo's health began to fail him. Leo continued to innovate right up until his final days. Leo suffered a number of strokes and developed Parkinson's disease, and died on March 21, 1991.


Leo Fender
It’s safe to say there would be no such thing as rock and roll without its distinctive instrumentation. To put it another way, rock and roll as we know it could not exist without Leo Fender, inventor of the first solid-body electric guitar to be mass-produced: the Fender Broadcaster. Fender’s instruments - which also include the Stratocaster, the Precision bass (the first electric bass) and some of the music world’s most coveted amplifiers - revolutionized popular music in general and rock and roll in particular.


Leo Fender and the Heart of Rock ‘n’ Roll
The designer, engineer and inventor would found the Fender Electric Instrument Manufacturing Company, the banner under which he created and produced the first wave of commercially successful electric guitars, basses and amplifiers. Fender’s panache for instrument design reached its pinnicle with his work on the Telecaster guitar, the Fender Precision bass and, most famously, the Stratocaster, the musical instrument that was the central force in defining rock ‘n’ roll in the 1950s and ’60s, and whose influence continues to dominate every genre of popular music.

Leo Fender didn’t invent the electric guitar. Six-string slingers had been experimenting with rudimentary amplification systems since the early decades of the 20th century. Always itching for more volume, guitarists were eager to be heard above the drums and other loud instruments in the dance bands of the time.

The first real innovations toward electric axes, however, came with the awarding of two patents for magnetic pickups. The first went to Gibson’s Guy Hart for his company’s Hawaiian guitar design on July 13, 1937, and the second went to Rickenbacker’s George Beauchamp for his horseshoe magnet pickup design featured on his company’s lap steel “frying pan” guitars, on August 10, 1937 — coincidentally, Fender’s 28th birthday.

The earliest electric guitars were either of the lap steel or hollow body archtop varieties. It wasn’t until guitarist Les Paul constructed his own prototype solid body electric, nicknamed “The Log,” in 1946 that the stage would be set for the revolution that would define popular music in the second half of the century.

And that’s where Leo Fender comes in.

Rory Gallagher is and always will be THE strat master. Four hour shows almost every night for his whole adult life, never sold out (even though he was asked to join many top bands) with the same strat in his hands playing like his life depended on it, the real deal!! RIP Rory (tomado de los comentarios del video)



Jonathan Richman - Fender Stratocaster
Born in the 50s looking so bold
Fender Stratocaster
Everythin' your parents hated about rock 'n roll
Fender Fender Fender

Wangin' and a twangin, sounding so tough
Fender Stratocaster
And the kids in my corner, they can't get enough
Fender Fender Fender
Like the wind in your hair when the top is down
Like taillights headed for another town
Fender Stratocaster, well there's something about that sound.

Like gasoline in the sand
Fender Stratocaster
Like a motorcycle at a hotdog stand
Fender Fender Fender
Like the Dunkin Donuts in Mattapan
Fender Stratocaster
Like the Thrifty Drugs in Santa An'
Fender Fender Fender
Well the sound is thin and the sound is cheap
Like a tin can falling on a dead end street
Fender Stratocaster, well there's something about that sound.

(Guitar)
Well how can it sound so tough?
Fender Stratocaster
And it's made to be treated rough.
Fender Fender Fender
It's got the ancient Egyptian script
Fender Stratocaster
It's got the wang bar from the crypt.
Fender Fender Fender
Oh you should have known it right off the bat
One look and you know it would sound like that
Fender Stratocaster, well there's something about that sound.

Like gasoline in the sand
Fender Stratocaster
Like a motorcycle at a hotdog stand
Fender Fender Fender
Like the Dunkin Donuts in Matapan(?)
Fender Stratocaster
Like the Thrifty Drugs in Santa An'
Fender Fender Fender
Oh and the sound so thin it's barely there
Like a bitchy girl who just don't care
Fender Stratocaster, well there's something about that sound.

Like Woo Woo Ginsberg at the juke box joint
You hear the sound and you get the point.
Fender Stratocaster, well there's something about that sound.
Oh Oh Oh Alright, etc.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

Conocí a Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (BRMC) por el tema Whatever happened to my rock and roll


En su MySpace me he encontrado con enlaces a dos campañas que no puedo no mencionar. La una, por la abolición de la esclavitud que aún existe, para desgracia de muchos y vergüenza de todos: Not for sale. La otra para la lucha contra el cáncer infantil... que se llevó por delante a Pablo, hijo de un amigo suyo.
