Rory Gallagher - Live In Madrid (1975) CD+DVD

01 - Messin' With The Kid (6:57)
02 - Tattoo'd Lady (8:48 )
03 - Garbage Man (11:22)
04 - Cradle Rock (7:23)
05 - Young fashioned ways (7:36)
06 - A million maile away (9:48 )
07 - Walk On Hot Coals (9:03)

Jimi Hendrix was once asked: "what is it like being the greatest living guitarist?" and he looked up and said "I don´t know, ask Rory Gallagher that question sir". One of the best guitar players ever, unfairly forgotten. Here is my little tribute to him and his music. I love his wild style and the way he sang and play rock. The show was recorded on 7th march ´75, in the Teatro Monumental, in Madrid. The video and sound is very good.

Procession - Destroyers Of The Faith (2010)

1. Hyperion 1:54
2. Destroyers Of The Faith 7:52
3. The Road To The Gravegarden 10:50
4. Chants Of The Nameless 9:46
5. Tomb Of Doom 8:27
6. White Coffin 7:25

Enormous epic doom from Chile.  If his Ep "the cult of disease"  was a very good work, wait to hear this one. Crushing guitars, well builded songs, the voices very much in keeping with that kind of music and a perfect production. One of the bests albums of the year. This is epic. Muy grande!

1. Four Men From the Row (03:13)
2. Old Man Souls (02:16)
3. Feed the Family (02:07)

10. We Welcome You Home (04:33)
11. Texas Rose (03:27)
12. Color of My Bloody Nose [Explicit] (04:51)

Ooooh yeah! The third album of Jon Konrad Wert (aka PBPJ). Here there isn´t a bad song, there is no place for mediocrity. It´s the way he plays (whatever, guitar, banjo...) and sings the songs, so passionate, intense, with his crazy attitude and his old school spirit, which makes his music so special. I hope you enjoy it as much as I´m doing.

Grinderman - Grinderman 2 (2010)

01 - Mickey Mouse And The Goodbye Man
02 - Worm Tamer
03 - Heathen Child
04 - When My Baby Comes
05 - What I Know
06 - Evil
07 - Kitchenette
08 - Palaces Of Montezuma
09 - Bellringer Blues

There are people who do what they do is good. This is the case of Nick Cave. Second album with Grinderman, and a second chance to listen  this gentleman perfoming the songs with his habitual viscerality and savoir-faire. Highlights "evil" and "palaces of montezuma". Not for beginners.

Jon Foreman - The Fall EP (2007)

1.- The Cure For Pain
2.- Southbound Train
3.- Lord Save Me From Myself
4.- Equally Skilled
5.- The Moon Is A Magnet
6.- My Love Goes Free

The first Ep of his solo adventure. Really inspired beautiful work of folk acoustic music, despite the ultrareligious lyrics (please don´t pay too much attention). For those moments...

Détente - Decline (2010)

1. In God We Trust 02:50
2. Predator 02:54
3. Kill Rush 03:28
4. Degradation Machine 04:42
5. Decline 02:45
6. Ashes 02:56
7. Genocide 02:34
8. This is Not Freedom 12:58

24 years after their first album the underground legends of thrash are back. Listening this album it seems as if time had not passed for them. Keeping the rage, the feeling and the strengh of the beginnings, with a new female vocalist, the band offers once again an other work of sublime thrash metal. Old school!

This the 21st part of the filmworks series, that Mr. Zorn started in 1997. Two different parts, probably Belle De Nature (an erotic short film) is one of the most inspired and brilliant soundtrack of the whole series, with highlighting amazing moments such "orties cuisantes" where Marc Ribot give us an astonishing guitar solo of an impressive deepness and beauty. The second part is the soundtrack for the documentary about the dutch museum´s restoration, composed for harpischord, vibraphone, piano and percussion. A delightful work.
