Musically, according to Daltrey the album covered areas that he had wanted the Who to pursue. The title track to Under a Raging Moon is a tribute to late Who drummer Keith Moonwho had died in at the premature age of This was his first major effort as a songwriter for his own solo career.

When the Who took the stage we couldn't do anything but to reach for the sky and howl. Anyone who has ever thought of calling these gods old men and dinosaurs should be deeply ashamed. The reports we've heard from around the world were true: Live rock doesn't get any better. Daltrey hand-built his first guitar from a piece of plywood, and also built guitars for the band in the early days when they had little money to buy equipment.

When we have a Freedom of Information Act in this country we shall have restored our Right to Know the Truth and that will bring sanity to our tax laws. Daltrey was previously a supporter of the British Labour Partybut he withdrew his endorsement citing his opposition to the "mass immigration" policies put in place under the Blair government.

Record Labels. Music Genres. OK, back to the Delmonas, the brainchild of a certain Mr. Billy Childish. According to his wikipedia page, Billy Childish "is an English painter, author, poet, photographer, film maker, singer and guitarist". I could add that he personifies the whole English garage scene and may possibly be the most prolific rock musician everas he's personally responsible for something like a albums, released by a dozen different groups.
One of the first was the rockabilly-influenced Milkshakes. A few of their EP's were released as the Milkboilerswho were actually the Milkshakes acting as a backing band for their respective girlfriends on vocals. For their first LP, they were renamed to The Delmonas - allegedly "taking their name from the word for a decorative handbag favored by women in the Klaipeda region of Lithuania".
Probably a hoax - any Klaipedean visitors of the blog are kindly requested to verify the above allegation. Anyway, the Delmonas continued to make records, backed by the Milkshakes or by Childish's new group Thee Mighty Caesars. We'll get back to them on another post. Now, all these don't sound very promising : They sound like the proverbial director casting his sexy yet talentless lover as the leading lady of his latest vanity project.
Well, guess again : Liberated from the boys' need to act toughthey became a much more enjoyable proposition - tough Bo Diddley beat and Cramps riffs softened by Nancy Sinatra sass and Beatles-like harmonies.
The Queen Of May - The Chieftains - The Chieftains (Vinyl they been released in the mid's they could have been hits like today's golden oldies. Basically every song on the record sounds like it came from the mid's Nuggets compilation.
Enjoy their music, and if you're ever in Klaipeda get a Delmona handbag and mail me a photo of it This is one of those albums I've bought twice. There's no other way to get his version of Jacques Brel's "Port Of Amsterdam" at the time a B-side to the "Sorrow" single - one of my favourite songs from the great Belgian troubadour.
I love Bowie's sparse, acoustic delivery and the way he brings the lyrics to life - the English translation of the song is poetic and wonderfully decadent. It wasn't part of the original LP, but included as a bonus track in the Rykodisc reissue and cruelly pulled out for later editions. That whole remastering program from saw Bowie's albums augmented with rare bonus tracks, and most of them were real gems which remain unavailable since.
Of course one can argue that, next to his other innovations, Bowie also discovered the tribute album. In his own words, he wanted to present some of his favourite songs that he thought were unfairly neglected by American audiences at their time. It was a weird exercise in nostalgia, as these songs were only 6 or 7 years old - not yet golden oldies by any standards. By he was probably rock's greatest star, certainly one of the most interesting artists around, and the leader of the glam rock movement.
Recorded immediately after "Ziggy Stardust" and "Aladdin Sane", he's backed here also by the Spiders of Mars, the sole change being Aynsley Dunbar on drums.
Which guarantees that, while rarely surpassing the originals, these versions don't lack punch. Actually, if a weak spot even exists, it'd be Bowie himself, whose voice is a bit too mannered for some of the rougher songs. They're mostly played in a straight, garage-ymanner. Ronson's guitar performance, at least, rivals Jeff Beck's original. The change doesn't work in the song's favour. So I guess you can say the were at least part Britishafter all. Now, audiences in were very much familiar with Pink Floyd, but I doubt many of them had ever heard "See Emily Play", a Syd Barrett-penned single from Bowie's version utilises saxophone, wild piano and harpsichord, psychedelic guitars and classical strings - inventive and true to Barrett's spiritif not to the song's original structure.
Finally, the album's lead single was paradoxically the slowest song, the Merseys' "Sorrow". On the other hand, it is the one most resembling 70's Bowie and such an obscurity that people would probably take it for an original composition. This reissue offers yet another rarity, a previously unreleased cover of "Growin' Up" by a then still unknown American artist called Bruce Springsteen.
Say what you will about Bowie, there's no denying he's always had an eye for talent! Ultimately, "Pin Ups" is a pleasant album that finds itself in the awkward position of following up a string of masterpieces. It may nevertheless have been exactly what Bowie needed to shake himself free from the image of Ziggy Stardust and influence of glam rock and embark on the next stage of his career.
Initially conceived as Brit-pop's answer to the Monkeys, Supergrass always seemed like fun guys, playing a kind of upbeat power-pop that, though hip to the times, was well schooled in classic rock and pop songwriting. As you may well imagine, those included the cream of rock and new wave songwriters. There are, nevertheless, two who are conspicuous by their absence : The Beatles and Rolling Stones. A bit of searching, though, reveals that covers of " Drive My Car " and "Under My Thumb" were recorded but kept out of the CD, maybe because they were too obvious.
The Kinks are represented here by an outsider, Village Green 's "Big Sky" played in a hard rock style reminiscent of The Who another notable absentee. The Doors' "Crystal Ship" is marred by loud outbreaks. Guys, it's called the crystal ship because it's fragile. But lads are always prone to smash stuff, so that's somehow to be expected. They chose a whimsical acoustic approach that belies the lyrics, but it's great fun nevertheless. Many songs are a bit more karaokemeaning that the band just play their favourite songs without bothering for arrangements.
They play well and are having fun with it, so the outcome isn't at all dismissable. Neither is the whimsical psychedelic pop of Syd Barrett's "Bike". I now realise I -unintentionally- left the first song for last. It's a rockin' version of Velvet Underground's "I Can't Stand It" - a garage-y take not far from the original, but an appropriately feel-good way to open the album anyway. For a low-key side project, this was quite enjoyable - I sang along to it while driving to the beach and everything.
I daresay I like it better than most of Supergrass' CD's, though it's still far from essential listening.
