We don't have education, we have inspiration; if I was educated I would be a damn fool. (Bob Marley) "If there remains any magic, it is music." (Bob Marley) In terms of raw popularity, Bob Marley sold over 20 million albums in a brief career that took him around the globe as, "[T]he first international superstar from the so-called third world", but the journey from anonymity within his own culture to reigning as, "[T]he defining figure of Jamaican music" was a circuitous and dangerous one. After leaving home at age 14, Marley's street skills helped him, "[G]ain a foothold in Jamaica's chaotic music industry while skillfully navigating politically partisan violence that abounded in Kingston through the 70s." His exaltation of the reggae form, couched in the Rastafari, became an instrument of order and a haven for otherwise directionless youth in Kingston and other communities of Jamaica. Beginning with the more lighthearted ska style, Marley drew fellow Jamaicans as kindred spirits by adding social commentary to the lyrics. As these popular dance hits were infused with songs of faith, the weightier genre of reggae emerged. Marley would become, "[O]ne of the genre's most beloved artists." To the outer world, he is by far the most iconic individual associated with the form and the era. As the merely distractive elements of ska fell away, "[I]nto the slower, bass-heavy reggae sound", the accompanying depth of his message lifted him above being a mere entertainer, and his fellow Jamaican youth turned to him for social truths. 1.

Bloc Party are an English indie rock band, composed of Kele Okereke (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Russell Lissack (lead guitar), Gordon Moakes (bass guitar, synths, backing vocals, glockenspiel), and Matt Tong (drums, backing vocals). Their brand of music is said to have been drawn from such bands as The Cure, Joy Division, Sonic Youth, and in their more recent work, Radiohead. The band was formed at the 1999 Reading Festival by Okereke and Lissack. They went through a variety of names before settling on Bloc Party in 2003. Moakes joined the band after answering an advert in NME magazine, while Tong was picked via an audition. Bloc Party got their break by giving BBC Radio 1 DJ Steve Lamacq and Franz Ferdinand's lead singer, Alex Kapranos, a copy of their demo "She's Hearing Voices". In February 2005, the band released their debut album Silent Alarm. It was critically acclaimed and was named 'Indie Album of the Year' at the 2006 PLUG Awards, which honour indie music. That year, the record was also certified platinum in the UK.

Waiting for the Floods is the first and only full-length album released by British rock band The Armoury Show, and frontman Richard Jobson's last known venture in music, other than his brief reunion with The Skids in the early 2000s. Although Waiting for the Floods was well-received by critics, it was a commercial failure and led to the dissolution of the band, with guitarist John McGeoch and drummer John Doyle separating in 1987 and the definitive end in 1988 when Jobson and bass guitarist Russell Webb decided to become solo artists.

He pursued musical activities in his spare time. He studied the organ in Ireland and pursued studies in music composition with Godfrey Ridout and singing with Weldon Kilburn at the Toronto Conservatory of Music. He published a Stabat mater and eight individual choral pieces, of which his part-song Who Is at My Window Who? has been widely performed.

Die Yellowjackets sind einmalig. Dass die Fusion Music sich ihre Vitalität und ihren Charme bewahrt hat &#8211; das ist nicht zuletzt ein Verdienst dieser Band, die Anfang der 80er Jahre von Kalifornien aus die Musikwelt eroberte und seither ein Glanzlicht nach dem anderen setzt. Wenn Keyboard-Könner Russell Ferrante, Bass-Ass Jimmy Haslip, Saxofon-Star Bob Mintzer und Drum-Derwisch Will Kennedy gemeinsam live loslegen, sind Pop-Fans ebenso begeistert wie Jazz-Liebhaber. Die Leidenschaft, mit der diese vier Virtuosen brillante Soli in geschmeidige Smooth- Jazz-Sounds einfließen lassen und ausgetüftelte Studio-Musik auf der Bühne zum Leben erwecken, steckt an. Konzert vom Juli 1994. Tracklisting: 01 Man Facing North 02 One Music 03 Invisible People 04 Dewey (For Miles) 05 My Old School 06 Jacket Town 07 Run For Your Life
