ESPECIAL: READY STEADY GO! THE SOUND OF MOTOWN.

agosto 31, 2009

Aquí vos deixo un especial do programa musical inglés Ready, Steady, Go! onde fan un repaso ás actuacións que tiveron ocasión de presenciar dos artistas do selo de música negra por excelencia: Motown.

Martha Reeves and The Vandellas join Dusty Springfield for a live performance of Wishin’ And Hopin’. With the Earl Van Dyke Sextet. From the Ready Steady Go (RSG), Sound Of Motown TV special, recorded at the Rediffusion TV studios in London on 18 March 1965.

Dusty Springfield (accompanied by Martha and the Vandellas) sings ‘Can’t Hear You No More’. The Supremes sing ‘Stop! In The Name Of Love’. The Temptations sing ‘My Girl’. Martha Reeves and The Vandellas sing ‘Dancing In The Street’. With the Earl Van Dyke Sextet. From the Ready Steady Go (RSG), Sound Of Motown TV special, recorded at the Rediffusion TV studios in London on 18 March 1965.

The Supremes sing ‘Shake’, followed by Martha Reeves and The Vandellas with ‘Nowhere To Run’. With the Earl Van Dyke Sextet. Introduced by Dusty Springfield. From the Ready Steady Go (RSG), Sound Of Motown TV special, recorded at the Rediffusion TV studios in London on 18 March 1965.

A live Motown medley with The Supremes (Baby Love), Smokey Robinson and The Miracles (You Really Got A Hold On Me), Stevie Wonder (I Call It Pretty Music…), The Temptations (The Way You Do The Things You Do), Martha Reeves and The Vandellas (Heatwave), Dusty Springfield (You Lost The Sweetest Boy), Smokey Robinson and The Miracles (Ooo Baby Baby). With the Earl Van Dyke Sextet. From the Ready Steady Go (RSG), Sound Of Motown TV special, recorded at the Rediffusion TV studios in London on 18 March 1965.

More live Motown medley with Smokey Robinson and The Miracles (Shop Around), The Supremes (Where Did Our Love Go). Followed by the finale ‘Mickey’s Monkey’ with Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, and everyone else joining in: The Supremes, The Temptations, Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, Stevie Wonder, Dusty Springfield. With the Earl Van Dyke Sextet. From the Ready Steady Go (RSG), Sound Of Motown TV special, recorded at the Rediffusion TV studios in London on 18 March 1965.

**Historical notes**:
This special was mainly Dusty Springfield’s idea, to promote the Motown music and artists to a wider audience in Britain. Dusty was an occasional presenter of the weekly TV pop show Ready Steady Go (which had the tag line… The Weekend Starts Here). She was a big fan of Motown music, and suggested the idea for this special to Vicki Wickham, recording artists manager and RSG’s producer at Rediffusion.
This followed the Motown artists first tour of Britain in March 1965, which had suffered poor ticket sales and played to half empty theatres. The timing of the tour proved to be too early. The Motown artists were not well known in Britain (apart from the ‘in’ crowd) due to limited exposure on UK radio at the time. But the bosses at Rediffusion TV had to be persuaded to allow this special to be made. It’s thought that it was Dusty Springfield’s inclusion in the show which sealed it – but still a brave decision for the time. The TV special was very successful and is historically important as it did a lot to popularise Motown with a mass audience in the UK. If this TV special had been made before the tour, rather than after the tour – it could have made a big difference to ticket sales.

Let’s hope that this show (and other surviving RSG footage) one day gets a DVD release. It’s now been over 20 years since anything’s been heard or seen of these shows. The “Rediffusion London” TV station ceased to exist after July 1968, when the franchise for commercial TV in the London region changed. Sadly, only a handful of their music shows have survived. Most of the RSG shows are now lost to history.

Smokey Robinson and The Miracles sing ‘Ooo Baby Baby’. Dusty Springfield duets with Martha Reeves and The Vandellas on ‘Wishin And Hopin’. The Temptations sing ‘It’s Growing’. With the Earl Van Dyke Sextet. From The Ready Steady Go (RSG), Sound Of Motown TV special, recorded at the Rediffusion TV studios in London on 18 March 1965.

Stevie Wonder sings ‘Kiss Me Baby’, with the Earl Van Dyke Sextet, on the Sound Of Motown, 1965 RSG TV special, introduced by Dusty Springfield. And from an earlier 1964 RSG show, Marvin Gaye sings ‘How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You’ and ‘Can I Get A Witness’. Ready Steady Go! from the Wembley (1965) and Kingsway (1964) TV studios of Rediffusion London

ESPECIAL: LIVE AT NULLE PART AILLEURS (NPA) [1ª PARTE]

julio 29, 2009

Nulle Part Ailleurs (aka NPA) foi un programa de entrevistas do Canal + francés que estivo en antena dende setembro de 1987 ata xuño de 2001 polo cal pasaron as maiores estrelas do cine, da música, da televisión ou da literatura entre outros. Pero ímonos centrar na parte musical porque realmente impresiona a cantidade de grupos e artistas de primeira liña que actuaron no programa: dende clásicos como Jimi Page e Robert Plant, David Bowie, Iggy Pop ou AC/DC pasando polos grupos punteiros dos 90 como Nirvana, Radiohead, Sepultura ata bandas que estaban totalmente fóra do mainstream como The Jesus Lizard ou Helmet.

Ésta é a primeira parte das deceas de vídeos existentes do programa. Irei recopilándoas porque paréceme moi interesante todo o elenco de artistas que actuaron nese plató.

Aquí en España tíñamos ó programa Lo + Plus (basado na idea do NPA) presentado por Máximo Pradera e Fernando Schwartz, un dos mellores programas da súa época e con invitados de nivel. A única pega que tiña eran as actuacións musicais: mentres en Francia levaban a Jeff Buckley aquí actuaba Rosario Flores.

Spain is different. Disfruten.

1. Jimmy Page & Robert Plant – ‘Rock’n’Roll’

2. David Bowie – ‘Scary Monsters’

3. Radiohead – ‘Karma Police’

4. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds feat. Kylie Minogue – ‘Where The Wild Roses Grow’

5. The Jesus Lizard – ‘Thumper’

6. L7 – ‘Drama’

7. Portishead – ‘Glory Box’

8. Sonic Youth – ‘Sunday’

9. The Smashing Pumpkins – ‘Bullet With Butterfly Wings’

10. Sepultura – ‘Refuse/Resist’

11. The Breeders – ‘Cannonball’

12. Deftones – ‘Change (In The House Of Flies)’

13. Depeche Mode – ‘It’s No Good’

14. The Cure – ‘Boys Don’t Cry’

15. PJ Harvey – ‘Good Fortune’

16. Jon Spencer Blues Explosion – ‘Weil’

17. Nirvana – ‘Rape Me’

18. Helmet – ‘Pure’

19. A Perfect Circle – ‘Judith’

20. Soulfly – ‘Tribe’

especial festimad 2005: medo e asco en fuenlabrada.

mayo 14, 2009

Pois hoxe apetéceme recordar vellos tempos, e qué mellor que lembrar o Festimad 2005. Era meu terceiro Festimad consecutivo e tamén foi o último…

Ese festival cunha organización pésima en tódolos sentidos, o emplazamento máis inhumano para disfrutar da música ó aire libre (¿Fuenlabrada? Venganomejodas), nin fontes de auga, nin lavabos, nin vexetación, o sol queimándonos a pel, o vento levándonos arresto…e tantas cousas (malas) que se falaron de aqueles dous días no inferno. Pero houbo unha cousa boa, a máis importante, os concertos. Disfrutei coma un enano de grandes concertos como The Dillinger Escape Plan, Hermano, Turbonegro, Clutch, Slayer, The Hives, os 20 minutos de Fu Manchu antes de que se fora todo ó garete ou ese amencer espectacular con The Prodigy pechando aqueles dous días de caos, locura e destrucción.

Menos mal que só se é xoven unha vez na vida…
