Rezension in englischer Sprache verfügbar

In less than four years, Simple Minds produced and progressed like few other bands. They released six albums, including a pair of nervy post-punk classics in Real to Real Cacophony and Empires and Dance, as well as the lavish "new pop" triumph New Gold Dream. Their audience expanded, and dates opening for the likes of U2 and the Police placed them in stadiums. The band's sound naturally became less subtle. For Sparkle in the Rain, they sought U2 producer Steve Lillywhite, whose approach helped shape their performances into a forceful, direct set of commercial rock designed to shake nosebleed seats. Despite frontman Jim Kerr's vaguest gesturing and most voluble bellowing to that point, the move worked. The pounding "Waterfront," hurtling "Speed Your Love to Me," and gleaming "Up on the Catwalk," the album's singles, all reached the Top 30 in the U.K., and by the end of the year, the band was headlining North American hockey arenas and amphitheaters. Apart from the brawling "The Kick Inside of Me," which contains one of Kerr's least tethered turns, none of the album cuts matches the urgency heard in the singles. Relatively restrained moments, such as the absurdly titled "'C' Moon Cry Like a Baby" ("Could this be something we don't understand," indeed), resemble stiff stabs at re-creating tense drama akin to the tail end of New Gold Dream. As successful as it was, Sparkle in the Rain merely poised Simple Minds for their biggest year, 1985, when they followed up with "(Don't You) Forget About Me" and "Alive and Kicking," singles that hit the Top Ten in the U.K. and the U.S. ~ Andy Kellman

Britpop in 10 Alben

“Wenn das Ziel des Punk war, die Hippies loszuwerden, dann ist unseres, dem Grunge ein Ende zu bereiten.” Als Damon Albarn mit diesem Satz 1993 ganz England einen kräftigen Schlag versetzt, nimmt es wieder seinen Platz auf dem musikalischen Spielfeld ein, das von Seattle mit dem Grunge und Nirvana besetzt war. Der britische Pop, der eng mit dem politischen Geschehen verbunden ist, entdeckt das Tageslicht genau zu der Zeit, als Tony Blair und seine New Labour Party die Bühne betreten. Die englische Romantik wird gegenüber der amerikanischen wieder attraktiv, da diese häufig als zu hohl bezeichnet wird. Bühne frei für “Cool Britannia”.

Betty Davis, die Funk-Furie

Ohne sie würde es weder Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse noch Janelle Monáe geben! Betty Davis ist zwar seit Jahren von der Bildfläche verschwunden, aber sie gilt noch immer als Pionierin unter den unkonventionellen Soul Sisters. Als Funk-Göttin schlechthin. Sie war es auch, die Miles Davis’ Energie als seine vorübergehende Ehefrau freisetzte. Betty, wer bist du eigentlich?

New Order, vom Keller auf die Tanzfläche

Wie wurde die dunkelste Band der Punk-Ära zu den Königen der Tanzfläche? New Order wurden in den frühen 80ern aus der Asche von Joy Division geboren, symbolisieren eine der ersten erfolgreichen Verbindungen zwischen Rock und Dance Music und schufen den makellosen Soundtrack des mürrischen Englands unter Margaret Thatcher.
