Rezension in englischer Sprache verfügbar

Simple Minds' astonishingly rapid ascent from humble and derivative post-punk to platinum and transcendent art pop is just as remarkable as the descent that followed it. More remarkable is the fact that a fair portion of the band's fans have such a strict discographical line in the sand drawn -- right at the chart-crashing masterpiece that is New Gold Dream -- where both sides overlap but don't dare cross. While fans of the band's earlier work essentially drop off with that record (and choose to live in blissful denial that the band existed after that), those on the other end are more or less oblivious to what's on the other side. So what's on that other, earlier side? Five studio albums released within the span of three years. Five studio albums that range from safe to bold, from impenetrable to accessible, from strange to puzzling, and from good to pee-your-pants phenomenal. Life in a Day, the first of the five records released during this fascinating pre-fame period of Simple Minds' career, is easily the least of the first five. On their debut, they seem to run with a template based on the jittery bounce of Roxy Music's "Virginia Plain" and the keyboard-accentuated lunatic punch of Magazine, a band that had released their own debut a year prior to Life in a Day. (Simple Minds would later release an album with the same title, Real Life. Coincidence?) Despite the growing pains, this is a skilled and assured assemblage of guitar-heavy post-punk, with Jim Kerr's over-caffeinated yelp taking the lead role. The arrangements are full, direct, and sharply executed. The high points: the teeter-tottering title track and the J. Geils Band-like swagger (honestly!) of "Someone." The low point: "Pleasantly Disturbed," an epic Velvet Underground-inspired limp that lasts eight very long minutes. ~ Andy Kellman

British Blues Boom: Chronik einer Revolution

Die Tatsache, dass Joe Bonamassa ein Jahr nach seinem Blue & Lonesome der Rolling Stones mit British Blues Explosion wiederkehrt, bedeutet, dass der British Blues Boom mehr als nur ein kurzlebiger Trend war… Das Interesse einer jungen Generation an den großen amerikanischen Blues-Ikonen, die in ihrem Land unbekannt waren, erschöpfte sich nicht nach einer gewissen Zeit, sondern löste eine wahre Revolution aus, bei der Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck und Jimmy Page die drei größten Agitatoren waren. Jenseits des Ärmelkanals wurden sie gar als die „Heilige Dreifaltigkeit“ der Geschichte des Rock bzw. der Gitarre gefeiert. Zwar waren sie bei weitem nicht die einzigen Musiker, die damit zu tun hatten. Doch aufgrund ihrer jeweiligen Laufbahn entdeckte man, dass der Blues nicht etwa eine Musik mit abgelaufenem Haltbarkeitsdatum war, sondern ein Tor zu anderen musikalischen Dimensionen mit neuen Wegen und Möglichkeiten.

Elvis, immer noch der King?

42 Jahre nach seinem Tod ist Elvis Presley immer noch ein unübertroffener Wegbereiter. Auch wenn seine unentbehrlichen Aufnahme-Sessions von 1954/1955 beim Label Sun ein Eckpfeiler des Rock’n’Roll bedeuten, scheint die Aura des King bei den jüngeren Generationen im Hinblick auf den Einfluss der Beatles, der Stones oder den Beachboys zu verblassen. Und dennoch...

Jimi Hendrix, der Himmel wird nicht mehr warten

Trotz Blitzkarriere hat Jimi Hendrix unendlich viele Einspielungen hinterlassen. Das beweist auch die Veröffentlichung von "Both Sides Of The Sky", eine neue Kompilation unveröffentlichter Fünf-Sterne-Titel. Was ist wohl in dieser Schatztruhe versteckt?
