Mission30


Kada je goth-despot Andrew Eldritch u septembru 1985. izjavio kako nema nameru da otpeva nijednu pesmu koju je za drugi album Sisters Of Mercy napisao gitarista Wayne Hussey, verovatno nije očekivao odgovor basiste Crayga Adamsa kako nema nameru da odsvira "bilo šta od sranja koje je komponovao Eldritch". Tako je (konačno) uspeo da od sebe otera i Adamsa, poslednjeg člana originalne postave benda.
Hussey i Adams napuštaju Sisters Of Mercy i rade demo snimke odbačenih kompozicija, zlu ne trebalo. Eldritch, iako vezan ugovorom za izdavačku kuću WEA, odmah otvara novi projekt u kome mu se pridružuju Patricia Morrison i James Ray (čiji album producira i objavljuje za svoju etiketu Merciful Release), a nešto kasnije i Alan Vega in person.
Za to vreme, Hussey i Adams planiraju novi bend (čije ime još uvek kriju u javnosti), kome se priključuju gitarista Simon Hinkler i bubnjar Mick Browne, čime je ekipa zaokružena i spremna za novu misiju. Ta misija je počela u januaru 1986. u Zemlji čuda.



I still believe in God
But God no longer believes in me

Ovim rečima počeo je the very first gig ever benda koji je sebe to veče predstavio kao The Sisterhood. Poruka je bila jasna svakome ko je bio upućen u sve što se desilo na relaciji Hussey-Eldritch tokom prethodnih šest meseci. Prvi koncert novog benda održan je 20. januara 1986. godine u londonskom klubu "Alice in Wonderland".
Plejlista te (i narednih) večeri izgedala je ovako:
01. Wasteland
02. And the dance goes on
03. Garden of delight
04. Serpents kiss
05. Stay with me
06. Severina
07. Bridges burning
08. Over the hills and far away
09. Sacrilege
10. Wishing well

Kada je saznao za naziv grupe svojih bivših ortaka, Eldritch aktivira sopstvenu mašineriju kako bi sprečio upotrebu tog imena, tako što istog dana sa novim saradnicima objavljuje singl "Giving Ground" a za naziv svog novog benda uzima - gle čuda! - takođe The Sisterhood. Pored toga, registruje mini kompaniju pod istim nazivom i pokreće pravni spor za dobijanje apsolutnih prava na sve živo što u svom nazivu sadrži reči sisters i sisterhood, tj. pokušava da spreči bilo kakvu asocijaciju na Sisters Of Mercy koju bi (sada već omraženi) novi bend mogao da komercijalizuje.

Plakat za nastavak turneje posle pauze, još uvek pod imenom The Sisterhood.

Iako svesna da će Eldritch najverovatnije uspeti u svojim namerama (što se kasnije ispostavilo kao tačno), Četvorka od Sestrinstva posle Londona nastavlja tokom januara i februara svoju jednomesečnu evropsku turneju pod tim imenom, i to zajedno sa The Cult, završivši je koncertom u Stokholmu 20. februara. To je bio ujedno i njihov poslednji koncert pod imenom Sisterhood. Turneju prekidaju na sedam dana, suočeni sa činjenicom da to ime više neće smeti da koriste; donose odluku da se preimenuju u The Mission - najverovatnije po nazivu drugog albuma Sisters Of Mercy "Left on Mission and Revenge", kome je bilo suđeno da nikada ne ugleda svetlost dana. Ovoga puta, znajući da će Eldritch tek na to odlepiti, tih nedelju dana pauze su iskoristili da se pravno obezbede i zaštite svoj brend od Onoga koji u njih više nije verovao. 
Iako su na plakatima bili najavljeni kao "Sisterhood - Ex Sisters Of Mercy", naredni koncert, održan 27. februara u londonskom klubu "Electric Ballroom", predstavlja i prvi pod novim imenom - The Mission.
Plejlista:
01. Wasteland
02. And the dance goes on
03. Garden of delight
04. Like a hurricane
05. Severina
06. Serpents kiss
07. Stay with me
08. 1969
09. Bridges burning
10. Sacrilege
11. Wishing well
12. Shelter from the storm (+ Ian Astbury & Billy Duffy - The Cult)
Poslednja pesma započela je incidentom koji je prilikom izlaska na stejdž izazvao "idiot Ian Astbury, uzvikujući pogrde na račun Eldritcha" (Mat Smith, Melody Maker).

Eldritch took the hat, Wayne and Craig took the songs.
Goodbuye and fuck off.

Posle bezbroj studijskih i (naročito) bootleg izdanja, tumbanja u postavi i raznih solo projekata, The Mission su 20. januara 2016. objavili konačnu listu svoje UK/Euro/Australia turneje povodom 30 godina postojanja benda.

And the dance goes on,

Deeply ordered chaos



I'm a European, tears fall on the altar
I'm a European, patience is my daughter
I'm a European, blood for holy water
I'm a European, Africa my mother
Is this the western dream
Defend our liberty

What you looking at
Who you dreaming of
What you leave behind?
A child of liberty
I opened my eyes
Defend Paris

Violence in my head, I'm a European
Violence in my head, I'm a European
Witnessing the fall from the perfumed lands
Syria the fall, weep for you


The Cult
Deeply ordered chaos

Tindersticks - The Waiting Room (2016)


Tindersticks
The Waiting Room
(2016)

In January 2016 Tindersticks released their new album The Waiting Room, a milestone not just numerically, but musically and creatively. Their first studio album since 2012's critically acclaimed The Something Rain is the most ambitious, diverse and elaborate album you'll have heard from Tindersticks in recent years. Two decades into their musical voyage these masters of restraint and poetic human emotion, are a band now confidently making the best songs of their career. The Waiting Room breathes gravity and features guest appearances by Jehnny Beth of Savages and a particularly poignant duet with long time friend of Stuart Staples and Canadian legend, Lhasa De Sela.

Everything's coming up Black roses

Don't sell it short for truth
Everything is coming up roses

Half Japanese - Perfect (2016)


Half Japanese
Perfect
(2016)

Half Japanese is one of the most influential bands in rock history. Founded by brothers Jad & David Fair in 1975, the band is credited with pioneering the DIY and lo-fi movements and influencing everyone from Sonic Youth and Neutral Milk Hotel to Daniel Johnston and Kurt Cobain (who asked the band to open some of the dates on Nirvana's In Utero tour). Known for dismissing conventional music basics like melody, song structure and chords (and for Jad's famous line 'the only chord I know is the one that connects the guitar to the amp'), Half Japanese operated under the premise that rock music should be accessible to anyone who wanted to play. On January 22nd, Joyful Noise has released Half Japanese's new full-length album, Perfect, a collection of songs that feature otherworldly sounds, chaotic rhythms, and weird time signatures, topped off with Jad's brash vocals and oddball lyrics. Its tracks run the gamut from sweet love songs with overtly sincere lyrics to manic, almost abrasive tracks that seem to end before you can fully wrap your head around them. With Perfect, Half Japanese manages to combine elements of every genre imaginable into one strange, unpredictable, and undeniably-catchy package.

Tales From The Smith


Brazilski umetnik Butcher Billy izradio je serijal naslovnih strana za izmišljeni strip-serijal horor priča, na kojima je glavni lik Robert Smith, dok se epizode zovu po pesmama The Cure. BB-ju to nije prvi put, postoji i serijal u kome glavnu ulogu ima Morrissey. Ni Smithu ovo nije prvi put da ga neko crta, ako uzmemo u obzir "pojavljivanje" u South Parku (1998) kao i nemali broj likova u stripovima Neila Gaimana koji svoj izgled najvećim delom duguju imidžu frontmena The Cure.


Serijal "Butcher Billy's Tales From The Smith Comic Book" predstavlja miks klasičnih strip stilova u omaž standardima poput "Tales From The Crypt", "Eerie" i "Tomb Of Dracula", u koji su umetnuti Robert Smith i stihovi iz nekih od njegovih najboljih pesama.
Izbor pesama The Cure, po brojevima, posebno govori sam za sebe.


Priča se... kako jedna jedina suza Roberta Smitha ume čuda da načini, prizove Bezebuba lično ili izazove pandemiju melanholije. Dovoljno je tom suzom samo poprskati kraj duge.
Zna se... da je Robert Smith definitivno "goth legend who truly taught us love and darknes".
Indeed.

Collective evolution


Ne mogu ja nikoga ničemu da naučim.
Mogu ih samo naterati da razmišljaju.
(Sokrat)


Svako uči svakoga, svako uči od svakoga.
(princip spojenih sudova + efekat leptira)


Kolektivna evolucija - tako, ili nikako.
Ako nje ima, učitelje možete trovati i razapinjati do mile volje - ne pomaže.

A disclaimer


Kada bi na početku Biblije stajalo upozorenje, šta bi u njemu trebalo da piše?


Ian McKellen:
- Često pomislim kako bi na početku Biblije trebalo da stoji upozorenje koje čitaoca obaveštava da je njen sadržaj fikcija.


Mo Laflamme:
- Isto što i na onom za cigarete, osim da izaziva ozbiljno oštećenje mozga i nedostatak lične odgovornosti.

My death


My death waits like an old roué
So confident I'll go his way
Whistle to him and the passing time
My death waits like a bible truth
At the funeral of my youth
Weep loud for that and the passing time
My death waits like a witch at night
As surely as our love is bright
Let's not think about the passing time

But what ever lies behind the door
There is nothing much to do
Angel or devil, I don't care
For in front of that door, there is you



My death waits like a beggar blind
Who sees the world through an unlit mind
Throw him a dime for the passing time
My death waits there between your thighs
Your cool fingers will close my eyes
Let's not think of that and the passing time
My death waits to allow my friends
A few good times before it ends
So let's drink to that and the passing time

My death waits there among the leaves
In magicians' mysterious sleeves
Rabbits and dogs and the passing time
My death waits there among the flowers
Where the blackest shadow, blackest shadow cowers
Let's pick lilacs for the passing time
My death waits there in a double bed
Sails of oblivion at my head
So pull up the sheets against the passing time



But whatever lies behind the door
There is nothing much to do
Angel or Devil, I don't care
For in front of that door, there is...

Me

Ball of confusion


So, round and around and around we go
Where the world's heading
Nobody knows

Hey hey
