RAREZAS: THE WIPERS.

enero 28, 2010

Aquí vai un vídeo que ten un gran valor para todos os fanáticos dunha das bandas máis personais que un servidor escoitou nunca: os Wipers.

Os seguidores do trío de Portland apenas podemos facernos unha idea do que eran o xenio de Greg Sage e compañía ao vivo xa que na rede existe pouquísimo material en vivo da banda. Éste é o máis antigo e o que mellor pode describir esa sensación.

Así que gracias o documental Northwest Passage: Birth of Portland’s DIY Culture, dirixido por Mike Lastra e editado en 2007, podemos ver ós Wipers tocando o seu clásico ‘Over The Edge’ nun directo do ano 1983 cunha calidade máis que aceptable.

Isto é un tesouro, amigos.

‘DO IT YOURSELF – THE STORY OF ROUGH TRADE’, documental online.

enero 26, 2010

The Rough Trade story begins more than thirty years ago on 20th February 1976. Britain was in the grip of an IRA bombing campaign; a future prime minister was beginning to make her mark on middle England, where punk was yet to run amok; and a young Cambridge graduate called Geoff Travis opened a new shop at 202 Kensington Park Road, just off Ladbroke Grove in West London. The Rough Trade shop sold obscure and challenging records by bands like American art-rockers Pere Ubu, offering an alternative to the middle-of-the-road rock music that dominated the music business.

In January 1977, when a record by Manchester punk band Buzzcocks appeared in the shop, Rough Trade found itself in the right place at the right time to make an impact far beyond that of a neighbourhood music store. When Spiral Scratch was released in 1977, the idea of putting out a single without the support of an established record company was incredible. But Rough Trade was to become the headquarters of a revolt against this corporate monopoly – it was stocking records by bands inspired by the idea that they could do it themselves.

But selling a few independent records over the counter was not going to change the world. Early independent labels had to hand over their distribution to the likes of EMI or CBS. But one man at Rough Trade challenged that monopoly. Richard Scott joined Rough Trade in 1977 and became the architect of a grand scheme that was nothing short of revolutionary: independent nationwide distribution.
