Ashes

May 27th, 2012

 

To cover Ashes to Ashes you simply need big kahoonas (Balls). I guess those guys were not intimidated by the fact The white duke has written this track and recorded it with the help of The greatest Tony Visconti at the controls, Robert Fripp with the sickening guitar parts, hell , Pete Townnshend on some axe action as well . This cover by NUC’s Ohnomoon sounds real good, regardless.


A Specials event

January 24th, 2010

The Specials announced a special NYC gig in April, at Terminal 5. I don’t know about you, but I am going to be there. For those of you who were too young or were not born in the late 70`s, the Specials were heading this movement of music in England that was called 2tone music, and tone was meant as skin color not a musical tone . It was music that was written and played by  blacks and white people, reviving funky Ska music, a genre that was invented in Jamaica during the 50`s . 2tone was the name of the most important Ska music label as well, that had the 2 leading bands, The Specials and the Selecter It was part of the end of punk, beginning of what was called New wave era, when punk songs were becoming a little more than distorted 2 chord songs. The 2tone graphic design consisted of lots of black & white visuals like this Specials pin in the photo above. Listen to this awesome band and go to that gig. Just as an appetizer check out this Saturday night live video of The Specials:
