40 years ago : Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band

June 1, 2007

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band

Today, 40 years from here, The Beatle’s Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart’s Club Band album appeared. 129 days long, they worked on the “most influential” album ever made. It was the last time the Fab Four would be together in a studio..

Tonight (June, 1st) BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music digitally broadcasts a documentary on the album with covers by Oasis, Kaiser Chiefs, Razorlight, etc.. By tomorrow, you’ll be able to watch performances from this event on-line. See http://www.bbc.co.uk for more!

My favourite album track remains ‘A Day in the Life’ of which the idea for the lyrics was, according to Mc Cartney, taken from a mad article in the Daily Mirror to result in a “poetic jumble that sounded nice” :

Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
And though the holes were rather small
They had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the albert hall
I’d love to turn you on

In the recording studio, on the rehearsal take, John was giving a few instructions before starting. He was singing while he was playing the accoustic guitar, and he counts in with the words Sugarplum Fairy…

So, what’s your favourite Beatles track…?

supperclub : addiction

May 24, 2007

 Addiction

Curious about my disc collection?

Well, now and then I would like to share my musical taste with you. This time I want to advise you not only one disc, but a series of discs : “supperclub”. I bought my first “supperclub presents : lounge” compilation back in 2001, the year I kinda discovered the “lounge style”. Some call it chill-out, ambient or lo-fi, but the discs tend to be more likely electro-dub or deep-house. Anyways, I think I started discovering thir collection following to my AIR addiction back then (more about that later on…).

The latest released “supperclub” is the first in a new series, named : “nine sins”… I presume that would give them nine new albums with hopefully the same good tracks as their previous “base” series. Let’s wait and see…

Unfortunately United, the supperclub disc’s label, has not yet found their way to the iTunes Music Store, but you can buy their whole collection directly via the supperclub website at http://www.supperclub.com/ninesins/
