Francesco de Gregori achieved celebrity status with Rimmel and Bufalo Bill, but success also brought unforeseen consequences. During a 1976 tour, extreme left-wing activists interrupted one of his concerts accusing him of selling out. As absurd as it may seem in retrospect, the incident deeply shocked De Gregori (who was always a leftist politically engaged songwriter), so much so that he retired from the music scene and became a bookseller. Fortunately, this self-imposed exile did not last long. About a year and a half later, De Gregori had written "Generale," a song he deemed so good he could not possibly refrain from committing it to record. Appropriately, "Generale" opens his 1978 eponymously titled return album, a stately piano ballad that recounts a soldier's train ride back home after experiencing hell in WWI's hills and trenches. Together with Fabrizio De André's "La Guerra di Piero," it is the greatest and most famous anti-war song coming from the cantautori ranks. Contrary to De André, De Gregori chooses a survivor instead of a victim as his protagonist: the ultimate effect is one of hope, rather than existentialist despair. As with many of De Gregori's best songs, "Generale" issues a humble but defiantly life-affirming message, and its naive, unjustly tried narrator sets the tone for an outstanding album. Indeed, most of the songs on De Gregori are stories about oppressed, confined, or marginalized individuals, due to political persecution and imprisonment, race, ideology, or even heartache. Set to lush arrangements recalling the pop song format of Rimmel, De Gregori features one moving, memorable track after another. The only minor glitch is the inclusion of slow and fast versions of "Renoir," perhaps after the example of De Gregori's much admired Bob Dylan, who did the same thing with "Forever Young" on Planet Waves -- yet, just like in Dylan's case, there is no doubt about the slow version being the real thing, and the fast one a fun throwaway. As he had done in his previous album, Bufalo Bill, De Gregori saves the best for last. While not as well known as "Generale," both "Raggio di Sole" and "Due Zingari" are equally poignant, particularly the delicate closer about two gypsy children sharing their dreams set against the barren nocturnal landscape of an urban periphery. Do not be misled by the fact that this album does not seem to contain as many hits as other De Gregori records: this 1978 release is unquestionably one of his very best. In addition, its cover featuring a famous telezoom photograph of De Gregori kicking a ball in a soccer field is the most beautiful of his entire discography.

Die Geburt des schwedischen Death Metal

Schweden war der Geburtsort unzähliger Metal-Bands und machte weltweit von sich reden, als Anfang der 90er Jahre plötzlich eine produktive und dynamische Death Metal-Szene auftauchte. Hier nun ein kleiner Rückblick, um aufzuzeigen, wie sich diese musikalischen Kreise entwickeln konnten und warum sie so originell sind.

Ian Curtis, universeller Poet des Industrial

Der Selbstmord des Sängers von Joy Division vor vierzig Jahren spukt immer noch durch die Post-Punk- und New-Wave-Szene sowie die gesamte Geschichte des Rock. In nur zwei Alben hat die Kultband aus Manchester mit ihrem charismatischen Leader, der heute noch die Musikszene beeinflusst, die grauen, deprimierenden Industriestädte glorifiziert.

Reinhard Mey - zwischen Liedermacher und Schlagersänger

Reinhard Mey ist einer der bekanntesten Liedermacher Deutschlands. Oder sollte man sagen, ein Schlagersänger? Er bewegte sich in den 1960er Jahren im Netzwerk der internationalen Liedermacherszene, begann seine Karriere zunächst in Frankreich und den Niederlanden. Das zwischen der Schlagerszene und den linken Liedermachern gespaltene Deutschland stritt sich zunächst um die Positionierung des charmanten Sängers. Zu seichte Musik oder doch zu kritisch gegenüber seinen Liedermacher-Mitstreitern?
