piu’ che interested…devoto!

ma fatboyslim, david byrne e imelda marcos insieme cosa c/entrano?

The tracklisting for the concept album by Fatboy Slim and former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne has been announced.

Called ‘Here Lies Love’, the album documents the life of Imelda Marcos, the former First Lady of the Philippines.

Due out on February 23, the 22-track double album features a host of guest vocalists on each track including Florence And The Machine’s Florence Welch, Santigold and Tori Amos.

Released as a box-set through Todomundo/Nonesuch records, the two CDs will also be joined by a 100-page book and DVD.

“The story I am interested in is about asking what drives a powerful person, what makes them tick? How do they make and then remake themselves?” David Byrne says in the introduction to the book.

“I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be great if—as this piece would be principally composed of clubby dance music—one could experience it in a club setting? Could one bring a ‘story’ and a kind of theater to the disco? Was that possible? If so, wouldn’t that be amazing!” He added.

The idea for the project came about four years ago and was orginally set to be a musical.

The tracklisting for ‘Here Lies Love’ is as follows:

CD 1:

‘Here Lies Love’ (Vocals by Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine)
‘Every Drop of Rain’ (Vocals by Candie Payne and St. Vincent)
‘You’ll Be Taken Care Of’ (Vocals by Tori Amos)

‘How Are you?’ (Vocals by Nellie McKay)
‘A Perfect Hand’ (Vocals by Steve Earle)

‘When She Passed By’ (Vocals by Allison Moorer)
‘Walk Like A Woman’ (Vocals by Charmaine Clamor)
‘Don’t You Agree?’ (Vocals by Róisín Murphy)
‘Pretty Face’ (Vocals by Camille)
‘Ladies in Blue’ (Vocals by Theresa Andersson)

CD 2:

‘Dancing Together’ (Vocals by Sharon Jones)
‘Men Will Do Anything’ (Vocals by Alice Russell)
‘The Whole Man’ (Vocals by Kate Pierson)

altra strana coppia lydon/rotten vs oasis… un lydon/rotten che ha dei regrets…

John Lydon has revealed how he regrets bringing Sid Vicious into the Sex Pistols.

The frontman, who is about to head out on a reunion tour with Public Image Ltd, said that Vicious lost his personality after joining the group.

“I’m sorry, God, for the day I brought Sid [Vicious] into the band,” Lydon told The Independent. “He felt so isolated, poor old Sid, because he wasn’t the sharpest knife on the block.”

He added: “The best aspect of his character, which was his humour, just vanished the day he joined the ‘Pistols.”

The singer also declared that he gets “annoyed” when new bands copying his style and singled out Liam Gallagher for criticism.

“I’m still hearing records coming out that mimic our style, but they don’t give us credit,” he explained. “I’m a bit annoyed, because I’ve never done anything in my life to be like somebody else. Oasis annoy me, you know? The voice annoys me. He could’ve come up with his own thing.”
