Prefab Sprout was always too good for the radio. Hearing the band's immaculate, gorgeously crafted pop songs alongside disposable, unimaginative records seemed like blasphemy. Perhaps many American radio programmers felt the same way, as most of this best-of compilation is obscure to U.S. listeners. While Two Wheels Good and From Langley Park to Memphis are superior purchases, A Life of Surprises is an engaging introduction to a group that is nowhere near as bizarre as its name. Much has been said about Paddy McAloon's warm, comforting voice, but like Paul Heaton of the Housemartins and the Beautiful South, his soothing croon can sometimes hide some pretty depressing lyrics. "When Love Breaks Down" is classic '80s new wave heartache: teary-eyed synthesizers, downtrodden basslines, and McAloon's whispery talk create a film noir atmosphere of deep sadness. The lyrics are sharpened by his adult observations. "When love breaks down/You join the wrecks/Who leave their hearts for easy sex," McAloon sings. The brutal honesty of those lines easily elevate "When Love Breaks Down" to the top class of breakup songs. Even more powerful is "Goodbye Lucille No. 1 (Johnny Johnny)," sung from the perspective of a man trying to make a close friend get over a girl who has rejected him. The words are frank and painfully realistic as McAloon doesn't sugarcoat the dialogue. McAloon rips into his buddy's futile romantic fantasies and lets the hard light of reality shine upon him: "Ooh Johnny Johnny Johnny you won't make it any better/Ooh Johnny Johnny Johnny you might well make it worse." If this sounds dreary it should be noted that Prefab Sprout isn't one of those grim British raincoat bands. The group has a number of wonderfully upbeat moments, such as on the exhilarating "Hey Manhattan!" and "Cars and Girls," a clever commentary on Bruce Springsteen's preoccupation with automobiles and women.

Los Grandes Angulares...
Marc Ribot, el anti guitar-hero

Durante 35 años, el nombre de Marc Ribot ha aparecido en las portadas de los álbumes de Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso y otros 9758 músicos. Y cuando no presta su guitarra atípica a alguno de los grandes, el «Neoyorquino» se divierte, en su propio nombre, desmontando el rock, el jazz, el funk, la música cubana y todo lo que caiga en sus manos.

Y Nirvana se cargó el rock…

Hace 34 años irrumpía Nirvana, una inesperada sacudida punk a finales del siglo XX. Carrera relámpago, éxito mundial, hordas de fans y epílogo trágico para un fenómeno planetario. El caso es que tal vez la banda de Kurt Cobain haya sido la última de la historia del rock. El último fenómeno dentro de ese género musical capaz de unir a una generación, y eso por no decir su último gran mito.

El Prince de los 80

En la familia del funk, Prince Rogers Nelson fue un género en sí mismo. En sus 40 años de carrera, logró mezclar el legado de los padres fundadores (James Brown, Sly Stone y George Clinton) con otras influencias que han ido desde el rock’n’roll hasta el electro e incluso el jazz. Un groove exuberante y espectacular que brilló esencialmente entre 1978 y 1988...
