Kraftwerk Rockpalast 1970 - YouTube

Kraftwerk From the Rockpalast Archive Mixed Media Show Soest, Germany Winter 1970 0. Intro 1. Stratovarius 2. Ruckzuck 3. Heavy Metal Kids 4. Improvisation 1
Mary Getsey Bernier's insight:

Kraftwerk 1970 at Rockplast. The first 14 minutes are of electronic "tuning" (or play it, and enjoy the groovy cool cat German hipsters–I'm coveting their suede and leather coats.) Things pick up at 15:00, and by 22:00, a clever marriage of flute and synth sounding like a curried blend of psychedelic and electronic. My favorite is the closing song at 45:00. Interesting how they used the synths and technology to alter the sound of the instruments they played. Experimental no doubt, but it built the framework of their legendary sound just a few years later. Today, all they need is a keyboard and podium. Truly, the pioneers of of electronic music. (For a bit of perspective of how long they have been doing this, I was three years old when they played this gig...) Their April 4th 2014 3-D show at the 9:30 Club Washington DC was the greatest audio and visual event I've ever experienced.

Iconic NYC Music Venues, Then And Now

Iconic NYC Music Venues, Then And Now | 80s Post Punk & New Wave | Scoop.it
They replaced CBGB with a luxury menswear shop, and The Palladium was turned into an NYU dorm.
Mary Getsey Bernier's insight:

It makes me sad to think these iconic venues are gone and replaced with commercial store fronts. Glad I was able to say at least I went to The Palladium, back in the day. Same situation with the 80s Washington DC punk and night clubs. They are long gone and what is there today hardly compares with the gloriously gritty originals. The lack of small, intimate music venues deprives up-and-coming bands the opportunity to hone their craft, develop their style. In my opinion, that is why today's packaged music hardly compares with the creative rawness of the music that came out of the late 70s and early 80s.

Mary Getsey Bernier's insight:

"At long last we can bring fans in the U.S.A and Canada the news that they have been waiting for-The Men In Black are coming back to North America! The band are confirmed to play an eight date tour Stateside in late May/early June, their first visit to the US since 1997. The tour kicks off in Detroit on 30 May before heading into Canada for two more shows, then it’s back to the East coast for another four gigs and culminating in the previously announced Ink n Iron festival in Long Beach on 9th June.
 

Baz has never visited North America with The Stranglers before, apart from a handful of Canadian gigs, so he is really excited about the tour: ‘I haven’t toured the U.S since my Toy Dolls days back in 1984 so I’m looking forward to it… The band haven’t been there for around 20 years so god knows what we’ll find. We’re well & truly up for it…’ JJ added: ‘The band are currently on a creative and performing high and are really up for a visit to both the US and Canada’.
 

VIP packages are available for all dates from FanExperience here and include a ticket for the show, early entry to the venue, a meet & greet and photo opportuntity with the band, a signed copy of Giants, a tour poster, a special laminate and more… VIP packages are on sale now!


General admission tickets for the shows will go onsale on the 22 March and we will add ticket links for each gig then. The full gig listing and VIP/ticket links can be found on the left."

John Lydon’s rallying call to youth: ‘Learn how to beat this system intelligently’

John Lydon’s rallying call to youth: ‘Learn how to beat this system intelligently’ | 80s Post Punk & New Wave | Scoop.it
  It started with a look. John Lydon was wearing a Pink Floyd t-shirt that he had modified to read “I Hate Pink Floyd.” It was this piece of anti-fashion that brought him to the attention of Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood, owners of the King’s Road boutique SEX.  Malcolm and Vivienne were conjuring up plans for a new band that would fuse fashion and music, and Lydon’s tee-shirt suggested the right kind of attitude the pair were looking for. Lydon was asked to audition for the band, so he mimed to an Alice Cooper number and won the role of lead singer with The Sex Pistols. He looked the part, you might say. It may have started with a look, but for John it was never about the image, as he later explained to Melody Maker in 1978: ”The rest of the band and Malcolm never…
Mary Getsey Bernier's insight:

“All kids should learn this in school—this is the weapon the Tories use against you. They want to keep you stupid. They want to keep you down. If you do not learn how to beat this system intelligently, you never will. That is the only lesson really in life to learn. Period.” ~John Lydon
