If Rum Sodomy & the Lash captured the Pogues on plastic in all their rough-and-tumble glory, If I Should Fall from Grace with God proved they could learn the rudiments of proper record making and still come up with an album that captured all the sharp edges of their musical personality. Producer Steve Lillywhite imposed a more disciplined approach in the studio than Elvis Costello had, but he had the good sense not to squeeze the life out of the band in the process; as a result, the Pogues sound tighter and more precise than ever, while still summoning up the glorious howling fury that made Rum Sodomy & the Lash so powerful. And Shane MacGowan continued to grow as a songwriter, as his lyrics and melodies captured with brilliant detail his obsession with the finer points of Anglo-Irish culture. "Fairytale of New York," a glorious sweet-and-sour duet with Kirsty MacColl, and "The Broad Majestic Shannon" were subtle in a way many of his previous work was not, "Birmingham Six" found him addressing political issues for the first time (and with all the expected venom), and "Fiesta" and "Turkish Song of the Damned" found him adding (respectively) faux-Spanish and Middle Eastern flavors into the Pogues' heady mix. And if you want to hear the Pogues blaze through some fast ones, "Bottle of Smoke" and the title song find them doing just what they've always done best. Brilliantly mixing passion, street smarts, and musical ambition, If I Should Fall from Grace with God is the best album the Pogues would ever make.

Les Grands Angles...
Qu'est-ce qu'il se passe, Marvin ?

Il était une fois "What's Going On", l'un des plus grands disques de soul paru il y a tout juste 50 ans. Ou comment Marvin Gaye changea l'histoire du label Motown et de la musique populaire des seventies...

Alice Cooper n’évite pas le danger

Le parcours d’Alice Cooper est avant tout un cas exceptionnel de dédoublement de personnalité. Comme dans “L’Étrange Cas du docteur Jekyll et de M. Hyde”, le chanteur Vincent Furnier s’est abandonné à la domination du showman Alice Cooper. Mais de son propre aveu, celui qui parle toujours d’Alice à la troisième personne dans les interviews reste un homme tout à fait simple et normal en privé, loin de cette scène où il a multiplié excès et provocations. Tout au long de ses plus de 50 ans de carrière, on pourra déceler une certaine schizophrénie dans ses nombreux changements de style. Si on lui attribue l’invention du shock rock, il a touché à tout, ou presque, avec plus ou moins de réussite, de la pop aux prémices du hard rock en passant par le heavy metal, la new wave ou l’indus…

Peter Thomas en orbite

En Allemagne aussi, ils ont leur Michel Legrand : Peter Thomas ! Ses musiques de film souvent déjantées ont fortement marqué toute une génération de spectateurs, dans les années 1960 et 1970. A tel point qu’il est souvent cité et samplé par de nombreux jeunes groupes pop, depuis les années 1990. Le compositeur culte s'en est allé le 17 mai 2020. Nous l'avions rencontré trois ans plus tôt, à l'aube de ses 92 ans.
