The 1975 will release their highly-anticipated second album I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it on 26 February through Dirty Hit/Polydor. I like it when you sleep… is the follow-up to the quartet’s million-selling self-titled debut. It is a bold and brilliant record made up of infectious pop hooks and sprawling electro sonics, an ambitious stride forward for one of the UK’s most exciting young bands. It will be preceded by the gospel-tinged The Sound, which follows the hysterically-received Love Me and UGH!. “In 2016, everything has been done,” says frontman Matty Healy. “You just have to try and do it better. My generation consumes music in this completely non-linear way and we reflect that, we create how we consume.” The 1975 have had the sort of breakthrough that only happens once a decade. Healy, Adam Hann (guitar), Ross MacDonald (bass) and George Daniel (drums) formed at school on the outskirts of Manchester ten years ago. After years of honing their sound, 2013’s debut album revealed a band who could blend accessible and anthemic choruses with an artistic aesthetic. It was a record where indie-pop grooves and alt R&B atmospherics sat seamlessly next to each other. A mass audience connected with indelible tracks such as Chocolate, Girls, Sex and Robbers and their tales of adolescent recklessness. The group toured the world, playing sold-out shows from Kuala Lumpur to San Francisco. All these experiences feed into the band’s second album which was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Healy and Daniel alongside production collaborator Mike Crossey. It distils their love of 80s sonics into something that sounds impossibly now, a record that shifts between shimmying guitar grooves (She’s American, Love Me), experimental electronic soundscapes (I like it when you sleep…, Please Be Naked) and cascading, adventurous pop songs (If I Believe You, Lostmyhead, The Sound) whilst always sounding part of the same whole. “Why create one type of music when nobody consumes one type of music?” says Healy. “The idea of rules in art is completely farcical.” The 1975 have made a record that captures the exhilarating feeling of falling in love and the devastation of breaking-up and all the fun and drama in between. They have a cherished mix of unlimited ambition and the rarefied talent to back it up. “We’re like brothers, we really are. We don’t know anyone who is as close with their siblings as we are we each other because from age 13 to now we’ve been in the same room together,” says Healy. This spirit is at the heart of their glorious second album. It will be one of the most important releases of 2016. The 1975 have set a benchmark that will be hard to follow.

Eröffnungskonzert der 21. BlueWocheAuch wenn er völlig zu Recht zu den anerkanntesten Künstlern der zeitgenössischen Bluesszene gehört, zählt für Mike Zito vor allem, dass er sich seine Aufrichtigkeit, Authentizität und Integrität bewahrt. Diese Eigenschaften waren von Anfang an für seine Karriere von herausragender Bedeutung und prägen auch weiterhin Zitos musikalisches Schaffen.?Ich habe nichts zu verbergen, und es scheint so, dass die Leute vor allem meine Aufrichtigkeit schätzen?, sagte er einmal der Zeitschrift Vintage Guitar. ?Anders (Osborne) hat mir schon früh geraten: ?Wenn du nicht an das glaubst, was du singst, wirst du nie ein guter Sänger sein.? Ich versuche, kein belangloses Zeug zu schreiben; bei mir zählt jedes Wort.?Auf seinem neuen Album ? seinem 16. insgesamt ?, das in diesem November bei Ruf Records erscheint und den selbsterklärenden Titel Rock?n?Roll: A Tribute to Chuck Berry trägt, geht Zito noch einen Schritt weiter, auch wenn es zugleich eine Rückkehr zu seinen Wurzeln darstellt. Das Album enthält 20 Chuck-Berry-Klassiker, die von Zito und einem beeindruckenden Aufgebot an Gastgitarristen interpretiert werden, darunter Joe Bonamassa, Walter Trout, Eric Gales, Robben Ford, Sonny Landreth, Luther Dickinson, Albert Castiglia, Anders Osborne und last, but not least Chucks Enkel Charles Berry III.Selbstredend gehörten Geduld und Durchhaltevermögen von Anfang zu Zitos Handwerkszeug. Er begann im Alter von fünf Jahren mit dem Gitarrenspiel und gegen Ende seiner Teenagerzeit war er bereits ein fester Bestandteil der lokalen Musikszene von St. Louis. Zunächst veröffentlichte er seine Musik in Eigenregie und unterschrieb dann 2008 bei Eclecto Groove Records. ?Pearl River?, der Titelsong seines 2009er-Albums für dieses Label, brachte ihm einen Blues Music Award in der Kategorie ?Song of the Year? ein und stellte zugleich seine erste Kooperation mit Cyril Neville dar, mit dem er später bei der Royal Southern Brotherhood zusammenarbeiten sollte. Es folgte eine Reihe von positiv aufgenommenen Alben, die ihren Höhepunkt mit Greyhound erreichte, das als bestes ?Rock Blues Album? bei den Blues Music Awards nominiert war. Zwei Jahre darauf unterschrieb er bei Ruf Records und brachte mit Gone to Texas, auf dem er die Geschichte seines Wegs aus der Drogenabhängigkeit erzählte, eine emotionale Hommage an jenen Staat heraus, der für ihn zur neuen Heimat wurde. Gleichzeitig markierte das Album das Debüt seiner Band The Wheel.Von 2010 bis 2014 spielte Zito zudem eine zentrale Rolle in der an eine Supergroup erinnernden Royal Southern Brotherhood. Mit dieser Band veröffentlichte er zwei Studioalben sowie das CD/DVD-Set Songs from the Road ? Live in Germany, das mit einem Blues Music Award als beste DVD ausgezeichnet wurde. Darüber hinaus konnte sich Zito als Produzent einen Namen machen, so etwa für Alben von Samantha Fish, Albert Castiglia, Ally Venable, Jeremiah Johnson, Jimmy Carpenter und vielen anderen.Und Zitos Erfolgsgeschichte geht weiter. Sein Album Make Blues Not War stieg in den Blues-Charts des US- Magazins Billboard auf Nummer eins ein und brachte ihm 2018 bei den Blues Music Awards den Sieg in der Kategorie ?Rock Blues Artist of the Year? ein. Mit seinem im letzten Jahr erschienenen Album First Class Life konnte er eine weitere Nummer eins landen, und das Magazin The Alternate Root urteilte: ?Warum er seinem neuen Album den Titel First Class Life gab, wird deutlich, wenn man den Sound jenes Blue Soul hört, der wie Hitzewellen aus seiner Gitarre und seiner Stimme aufsteigt.? Auf American Blues Scene war zu lesen: ?Mike Zitos Rückkehr zum Blues ist, um es mit einem Wort zu sagen, triumphal!? Und bei No Depression hieß es: ?Einmal mehr hat Zito die Erwartungen erfüllt und ein erstklassiges Paket abgeliefert, ohne dass man dafür Porto bezahlen muss.?Mit Rock?n?Roll: A Tribute to Chuck Berry hat Zito nun erneut das getan, was er am besten kann: ein Album aufzunehmen, das demütig, von Herzen kommend, professionell gemacht und einfach großartig ist ? und um Chuck Berry selbst zu paraphrasieren, es zugleich so richtig rocken lässt.Dies kann man 2020 live auf der Bühne erleben, wenn Mike in Europa die Bühnen rockt! Mit altbekannten Hits und den mitreißenden neuen Songs vom Album Rock?n?Roll: A Tribute to Chuck Berry!Das wird definitiv eine Show bei der niemand die Füße stillhalten kann!Mike Zito ? vocals, guitartba ? pianoMatt Johnson ? drumsTerry Dry ? bass

Viele Bands passen nur schwer in irgendeine Schublade. Aber nur wenige machen dann lieber gleich ihre eigene auf. So wie Dream Theater. „Progressive Metal steht da drauf, was nur heißen soll, dass in ihrer Musik Elemente aus Metal, Prog-Rock und Fusion zusammenfließen wie sonst nirgends. Die New Yorker John Petrucci (Gitarre), John Myung (Bass) und Mike Portnoy (Schlagzeug) hatten schon Mitte der 1980er am Berklee College Of Music zueinander gefunden. Aber der Durchbruch gelang erst 1992, als für das zweite Dream Theater-Album „Images And Words" unter rund 200 Kandidaten in James LaBrie endlich der richtige Sänger für die Band gefunden war. Die Single „Pull Me Under" ging in die US-Top Ten. In die deutsche Top 20 schaffte es dann 1994 das Album „Awake", schon erstaunlich, bedenkt man, dass dieses Werk noch wesentlich komplexer, härter und auch düsterer ausfiel als der Vorgänger. Doch Dream Theater setzten fünf Jahre später noch mal einen drauf. „Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory" gilt als das opus magnum der Band. Für das Konzeptalbum über Brudermord, Hypnose und Wiedergeburt, das im Song „The Spirit Carries On" sogar einen Gospel-Chor aufbietet, ließen sich Portnoy und Petrucci u.a. von dem Film „Schatten der Vergangenheit" inspirieren. Ganz andere Quellen nährten dann 2003 das siebte Bandalbum „Train Of Thought", nachdem Dream Theater auf der Tour zuvor mal eben die kompletten Alben „Master Of Puppets" (Metallica) und „The Number Of The Beast" (Iron Maiden) gecovert hatten. Danach konnten sie ganz hart auch selbst - Metal rein, Prog raus aus der Schublade."

10ccBiography (full version)Among the most inventive and influential bands in the history of popular music, 10cc are one of the very few acts to have achieved commercial, critical and creative success in equal measure. Testament to 10cc?s ongoing appeal, the band can count a generation straddling array of fellow artists, everyone from Chrissie Hynde to The Feeling?s Dan Gillespie and Axl Rose to Sophie Ellis Bextor, among their many millions of fans. I´m Not In Love, co-written by Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart, features prominently in the soundtrack to the 2014 blockbuster film Guardians of the Galaxy, which grossed $635 million in its first two months in US cinemas and spawned a No 1 album. Meanwhile, a key element of the soundtrack to 2010?s Facebook feature film The Social Network is Dreadlock Holiday, which is also the Sky Sports cricket reports theme in Australia.10cc has sold more than 30 million albums around the world and the band?s longevity is testament to their timeless songs, and reflecting Gouldman?s status as one of the world?s leading songwriters, he was inducted into America?s Songwriter?s Hall of Fame at a ceremony in New York in June. Previous inductees include Noel Coward, Burt Bacharach, Neil Sedaka, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Elton John and Sting.The band continues to traverse the globe and play countries as disparate as Iceland and South Africa, Latvia and Japan, as well as across Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Canada and the US. Following a 26-date UK tour in October-November, early 2019 will see the band play three concerts in Japan, before touring Denmark, Sweden and Norway, followed by a 15-date major city UK tour and the band?s first concert in Moscow. 10cc returns to the UK?s prestigeous, 5,200-capacity Royal Albert Hall in London on 2 May 2019.Gouldman attributes 10cc?s lasting appeal to the quality and individuality of the band?s songs. ?They don?t seem to date; they are original, we never followed any trend we simple wrote for our own pleasure. The fact that the songs are being played as often on the radio today as they ever were shows how true that is,? he says. /210cc Biography (full version) - page 210cc ruled the pop world at a time ? the 1970s ? when the charts were dominated by some of the most creative and colourful artistes in pop history. Unlike David Bowie, Queen, Elton John or Rod Stewart ? all of whom they stood shoulder-to-shoulder with for a decade ? 10cc?s energies were not centred on image or celebrity-status, but on creating highly sophisticated rock masterworks with mainstream appeal. Early influences on the band included The Beatles and the Beach Boys, but their palate proved wide. Says Gouldman: ?For me it was people like Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Jimmy Webb, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers. Eric [Stewart] was more rock ?n? roll, the blues and R&B; while Kevin [Godley] and Lol [Creme] were into more artistic and avant-garde acts including Jacques Brel. It?s what happened when we put all those things together that made 10cc.? The result was some of the greatest pop records of the 20th Century. From breakthrough hit Donna in 1972 to their final No 1, Dreadlock Holiday in 1978, via landmark releases including 1975 worldwide hit I?m Not In Love, 10cc stood for the kind of heightened pop sensibility achieved only by the very greatest music practitioners. As Rolling Stone magazine put it in 1975, ?There is more going on in one 10cc song than on the last ten Yes albums.?With hit song-writing credits with bands including the Yardbirds, Hollies and Herman?s Hermits under his belt, the early 1970s saw Gouldman and his compatriots reach new levels of creative endeavour. He spent time in New York writing for bubblegum kings Jerry Kazenetz and Jeff Katz., but fed up with being away from home, he returned to the UK to record the songs he had written Stateside with his friends at Strawberry Studios in Stockport. Back in Manchester, Stewart, Godley and Creme had also been busy, with Stewart testing a new four-track recorder that lead to the recording of Neanderthal Man, a track that went on to enjoy 14 weeks in the UK charts in 1970, peaking at No 2. The band was called Hotlegs and comprised Godley, Creme, Stewart, and briefly Gouldman.In1972 Gouldman?s manager Harvey Lisberg (later to become 10cc?s manager) met Neil Sedaka, who was playing a residency at Batley Variety Club in Yorkshire. Sedaka?s career was in decline and Lisberg suggested he worked with the guys at Strawberry. The result was Sedaka?s hit comeback album Solitaire, produced by Gouldman, Stewart, Godley and Creme, with Stewart acting as engineer.?We all learned so much from those sessions. Neil?s sheer professionalism, musicianship and song-writing were inspiring,? says Gouldman./310cc Biography (full version) - page 3 ?We?d done a few tracks and we needed a B-side for Waterfall [a Gouldman/Stewart composition]. There was a possibility that it would come out on the Apple label, which we were very excited about, because any connection with the Beatles was great,? says Gouldman. A Godley and Creme song, Donna, was chosen. ?We didn?t have a name for the band and weren?t bent on world domination or anything, but Donna made us sit up and notice ourselves, that we actually had something special.?And so 10cc was born, Donna became the A side and reached No 2 in the UK charts. Right from the start it was obvious they weren?t like other groups. All four could sing, were adept in the recording studio, and were seasoned musicians more interested in pleasing themselves than writing to a formula. Not long after Donna was released, Sedaka returned to Strawberry to record a second album, The Tra-La Days Are Over, with the same team, and his career took off again.10cc comprised essentially two song-writing camps, Gouldman and Stewart, plus Godley and Creme, although they would sometimes intermingle. ?Our principle was always the music,? says Gouldman, ?whatever?s best for the song. That means if I can sing better than you on it, that?s what happens. Or if Lol can play lead guitar better than you, he?ll do it. Consequently we had four singers in the band, four instrumentalists and four producers, plus Eric also engineered the sessions.?The other thing was whoever wrote the song, it kind of became the property of the four of us. You couldn?t say, ?That song is crap, I don?t want anything to do with it?. What you had to say was, ?I don?t like that part of the song, but I think we could make it better by doing this?. You always had to come up with something positive.??It was the combination of all four of us that made the difference, not only in the song-writing, but in the production values as well,? says Gouldman.Whether it?s the eight-minute pop opera Une Nuit a Paris, or the No.1 hit pop masterpiece I?m Not In Love, both from The Original Soundtrack (1975) album, no two 10cc records sound the same,?A very important element,? explains Gouldman, ?was we were completely self-contained. There wasn?t even a producer. If Eric was singing one of us would work the board. We used to just give the tracks straight to the record company.?Indeed, they didn?t even have a recognisable frontman. ?Eric was a very good-looking guy who took on the role quite often, and Lol was also brilliant out front. But you?d never know on the record who was playing guitar or even who was singing sometimes.?/410cc Biography (full version) - page 4The first time 10cc played live, at the Isle of Man Casino in 1973, they were taken aback at the response. ?We went onstage and girls started screaming! It was like, what the f**k is going on? We imagined ourselves as professors of pop who were going to give a lecture on pop music, but it wasn?t like that at all.?The critical plaudits also rolled in. Rolling Stone calling The Original Soundtrack, ?better than anything the Beach Boys have done of late?. The NME described I?m Not In Love as ?a John Lennon song with a Paul McCartney vocal?. In an age where critics spent an inordinate amount of time trying to identify the new Beatles, 10cc increasingly seemed to fit the bill.?Because we existed in our own world, we didn?t need anyone to tell us how good we were. We listened to the records and went, this is everything we want it to be and more.? Even after the astonishing success of I?m Not In Love, they refused to play the game and followed it up with the acidic Art For Art?s Sake ? and scored another Top 5 hit.?Art for art?s sake, money for God?s sake, was something my late father used to say to me, although he wasn?t cynical like that at all ? he was very artistic. But it?s such a lovely phrase. Eric had this riff and I just started singing that, and the song came.?The biggest surprise of all was the departure of Godley and Creme after their next album, How Dare You? ?It was horrible,? Gouldman confesses. ?It was an absolute disaster. Like getting a divorce.?Godley and Creme had become preoccupied with the Gizmotron ? from the word ?gizmo? ? a device they had invented which when applied could bring new sounds and textures out of an electric guitar. Obsessed with devising a showcase for it, they began recording a triple album together, Consequences.Says a reflective Gouldman now, ?Kev and I, who stayed quite close, have talked about this since and have decided what should have happened; he and Lol should have gone go off and done their thing for a year or so, then allowed 10cc to resume. ?But that?s just not how things were done in the ?70s. No one had a year off. Plus I think the record company were probably expecting another album, tours were booked and so on.?Instead, Gouldman and Stewart continued as 10cc and scored more notable successes with their next two albums, Deceptive Bends (1977) ? featuring their next worldwide hit single Things We Do For Love ? and Bloody Tourists (1978), which spawned another international hit, Dreadlock Holiday.?We were on a mission to prove ourselves,? says Gouldman, ?This wasn?t like a couple of guys leaving the band who just played their instruments. This was two of the producers going, two of the singers going, two of the songwriters going. So it was a real 50 percent gone.?Ultimately, the split took its toll and when Stewart was badly injured in a car crash in 1979, the writing was on the wall. /510cc Biography (full version) - page 5?It flattened me completely,? Stewart later recalled. ?I damaged my left ear and eye very badly. I couldn´t go near music. I couldn´t go near anything loud and I love music and motor-racing. I had to stay away from both things for a long time [and] the momentum of this big machine that we´d had rolling slowed and slowed and slowed. And on the music scene, the punk thing had come in a big way.?All four original members enjoyed very successful post-10cc careers. Godley and Creme continued as a partnership, recording their own hit records and becoming Grammy-winning video directors for acts including Ultravox, The Police, Duran Duran and Frankie Goes To Hollywood. Stewart collaborated on three Paul McCartney albums in the 1980s and continues to record sporadically as a solo artiste, his most recent collection being Viva La Difference in 2009.Meanwhile Gouldman spent the 1980s concentrating on recording soundtracks for films such as Farah Fawcett?s Sunburn and the American animation Animalympics. He also worked as a producer with The Ramones and Gilbert O?Sullivan. He then formed Wax with American songwriter Andrew ?Lonely Boy? Gold and had hits with Right Between The Eyes and Bridge To You Heart.There were two final Gouldman-Stewart directed 10cc albums in the ?90s, the first ... Meanwhile (1992), featured contributions from both Godley and Creme, while the last, Mirror Mirror (1995), despite featuring contributions from McCartney and Gold, was more a collection of Gouldman and Stewart solo songs. That same year, 10cc received a BMI citation for three million plays on US radio for I?m Not In Love (since risen to five million). This followed the BMI citation for two million plays (since risen to 3.5m) of Things We Do For Love,In 2002, the 30th anniversary of the band?s debut hit Donna, 10cc began to creep back into the national consciousness. With Gouldman fronting a new touring band, a 28-date UK tour was followed by a series of one-off events across Europe. The band have continued to regularly tour the world ever since. In 2006, Universal records released the TV-advertised, double CD 10cc: Greatest Hits ? And More, and the following year national newspaper the Mail On Sunday produced a special 10-track, cover-mount Best of 10cc Live CD, distributing more than 2.4 million copies throughout the UK and Ireland. The paper reported that sales rose by 232,000 on the day of publication.For the band?s 40th anniversary year in 2012, Universal Records released a new five-CD box set entitled Tenology, featuring 80 tracks chosen by the four original band members.A world tour took 10cc as far and wide as Iceland and Australia, and saw them play London?s Royal Albert Hall for the first time. The landmark concert saw Kevin Godley guest on several numbers including a capella version of Donna./610cc Biography (full version) - page 6After 50 concerts with 10cc that year, Gouldman decided to tour as an acoustic outfit, Heart Full of Songs, which included10cc?s Rick Fenn, Mick Wilson and Mike Stevens. Their set included hits Gouldman wrote for The Hollies, Herman?s Hermits, the Yardbirds and film soundtracks, along with material from his new solo album Love And Work.In 2013, 10cc joined Status Quo for a tour of UK arenas, including London?s 20,000-capacity The O2. In the years since, the band have toured in Australia, Ireland Japan, New Zealand across the UK and Europe and at London?s 60,000-capacity British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park.?Year on year we get busier and busier. It?s great, we love touring and playing together and we get on really well. The audiences these days are very gratifying. You get the people you would expect, who grew up with 10cc, but you also get young kids who know the songs too,? says Gouldman. With four decades of song-writing excellence and a crack band of musicians behind him Gouldman confidently promises, ?This is as near as you?re ever going to get to hearing the perfect 10cc. Hit after hit after hit. It?s relentless. We show no mercy.?The live band?s line-up is:Graham Gouldman-bass, guitars, vocalsRick Fenn - lead guitar, vocals, bass guitarPaul Burgess - drums, percussionIain Hornal - vocals, percussion, guitar, keyboardsKeith Hayman - keyboards, guitar, bass, vocalsPaul has worked with 10cc from the beginning and Rick joined the live band in the mid-?70s. 10cc ?

He spent time in New York writing for bubblegum kings Jerry Kazenetz and Jeff Katz., but fed up with being away from home, he returned to the UK to record the songs he had written Stateside with his friends at Strawberry Studios in Stockport. Back in Manchester, Stewart, Godley and Creme had also been busy, with Stewart testing a new four-track recorder that lead to the recording of Neanderthal Man, a track that went on to enjoy 14 weeks in the UK charts in 1970, peaking at No 2. The band was called Hotlegs and comprised Godley, Creme, Stewart, and briefly Gouldman.In1972 Gouldman?s manager Harvey Lisberg (later to become 10cc?s manager) met Neil Sedaka, who was playing a residency at Batley Variety Club in Yorkshire. Sedaka?s career was in decline and Lisberg suggested he worked with the guys at Strawberry. The result was Sedaka?s hit comeback album Solitaire, produced by Gouldman, Stewart, Godley and Creme, with Stewart acting as engineer.?We all learned so much from those sessions. Neil?s sheer professionalism, musicianship and song-writing were inspiring,? says Gouldman./310cc Biography (full version) - page 3 ?We?d done a few tracks and we needed a B-side for Waterfall [a Gouldman/Stewart composition]. There was a possibility that it would come out on the Apple label, which we were very excited about, because any connection with the Beatles was great,? says Gouldman. A Godley and Creme song, Donna, was chosen. ?We didn?t have a name for the band and weren?t bent on world domination or anything, but Donna made us sit up and notice ourselves, that we actually had something special.?And so 10cc was born, Donna became the A side and reached No 2 in the UK charts. Right from the start it was obvious they weren?t like other groups. All four could sing, were adept in the recording studio, and were seasoned musicians more interested in pleasing themselves than writing to a formula. Not long after Donna was released, Sedaka returned to Strawberry to record a second album, The Tra-La Days Are Over, with the same team, and his career took off again.10cc comprised essentially two song-writing camps, Gouldman and Stewart, plus Godley and Creme, although they would sometimes intermingle. ?Our principle was always the music,? says Gouldman, ?whatever?s best for the song. That means if I can sing better than you on it, that?s what happens. Or if Lol can play lead guitar better than you, he?ll do it. Consequently we had four singers in the band, four instrumentalists and four producers, plus Eric also engineered the sessions.?The other thing was whoever wrote the song, it kind of became the property of the four of us. You couldn?t say, ?That song is crap, I don?t want anything to do with it?. What you had to say was, ?I don?t like that part of the song, but I think we could make it better by doing this?. You always had to come up with something positive.??It was the combination of all four of us that made the difference, not only in the song-writing, but in the production values as well,? says Gouldman.Whether it?s the eight-minute pop opera Une Nuit a Paris, or the No.1 hit pop masterpiece I?m Not In Love, both from The Original Soundtrack (1975) album, no two 10cc records sound the same,?A very important element,? explains Gouldman, ?was we were completely self-contained. There wasn?t even a producer. If Eric was singing one of us would work the board. We used to just give the tracks straight to the record company.?Indeed, they didn?t even have a recognisable frontman. ?Eric was a very good-looking guy who took on the role quite often, and Lol was also brilliant out front. But you?d never know on the record who was playing guitar or even who was singing sometimes.?/410cc Biography (full version) - page 4The first time 10cc played live, at the Isle of Man Casino in 1973, they were taken aback at the response. ?We went onstage and girls started screaming! It was like, what the f**k is going on? We imagined ourselves as professors of pop who were going to give a lecture on pop music, but it wasn?t like that at all.?The critical plaudits also rolled in. Rolling Stone calling The Original Soundtrack, ?better than anything the Beach Boys have done of late?. The NME described I?m Not In Love as ?a John Lennon song with a Paul McCartney vocal?. In an age where critics spent an inordinate amount of time trying to identify the new Beatles, 10cc increasingly seemed to fit the bill.?Because we existed in our own world, we didn?t need anyone to tell us how good we were. We listened to the records and went, this is everything we want it to be and more.? Even after the astonishing success of I?m Not In Love, they refused to play the game and followed it up with the acidic Art For Art?s Sake ? and scored another Top 5 hit.?Art for art?s sake, money for God?s sake, was something my late father used to say to me, although he wasn?t cynical like that at all ? he was very artistic. But it?s such a lovely phrase. Eric had this riff and I just started singing that, and the song came.?The biggest surprise of all was the departure of Godley and Creme after their next album, How Dare You? ?It was horrible,? Gouldman confesses. ?It was an absolute disaster. Like getting a divorce.?Godley and Creme had become preoccupied with the Gizmotron ? from the word ?gizmo? ? a device they had invented which when applied could bring new sounds and textures out of an electric guitar. Obsessed with devising a showcase for it, they began recording a triple album together, Consequences.Says a reflective Gouldman now, ?Kev and I, who stayed quite close, have talked about this since and have decided what should have happened; he and Lol should have gone go off and done their thing for a year or so, then allowed 10cc to resume. ?But that?s just not how things were done in the ?70s. No one had a year off. Plus I think the record company were probably expecting another album, tours were booked and so on.?Instead, Gouldman and Stewart continued as 10cc and scored more notable successes with their next two albums, Deceptive Bends (1977) ? featuring their next worldwide hit single Things We Do For Love ? and Bloody Tourists (1978), which spawned another international hit, Dreadlock Holiday.?We were on a mission to prove ourselves,? says Gouldman, ?This wasn?t like a couple of guys leaving the band who just played their instruments. This was two of the producers going, two of the singers going, two of the songwriters going. So it was a real 50 percent gone.?Ultimately, the split took its toll and when Stewart was badly injured in a car crash in 1979, the writing was on the wall. /510cc Biography (full version) - page 5?It flattened me completely,? Stewart later recalled. ?I damaged my left ear and eye very badly. I couldn´t go near music. I couldn´t go near anything loud and I love music and motor-racing. I had to stay away from both things for a long time [and] the momentum of this big machine that we´d had rolling slowed and slowed and slowed. And on the music scene, the punk thing had come in a big way.?All four original members enjoyed very successful post-10cc careers. Godley and Creme continued as a partnership, recording their own hit records and becoming Grammy-winning video directors for acts including Ultravox, The Police, Duran Duran and Frankie Goes To Hollywood. Stewart collaborated on three Paul McCartney albums in the 1980s and continues to record sporadically as a solo artiste, his most recent collection being Viva La Difference in 2009.Meanwhile Gouldman spent the 1980s concentrating on recording soundtracks for films such as Farah Fawcett?s Sunburn and the American animation Animalympics. He also worked as a producer with The Ramones and Gilbert O?Sullivan. He then formed Wax with American songwriter Andrew ?Lonely Boy? Gold and had hits with Right Between The Eyes and Bridge To You Heart.There were two final Gouldman-Stewart directed 10cc albums in the ?90s, the first ... Meanwhile (1992), featured contributions from both Godley and Creme, while the last, Mirror Mirror (1995), despite featuring contributions from McCartney and Gold, was more a collection of Gouldman and Stewart solo songs. That same year, 10cc received a BMI citation for three million plays on US radio for I?m Not In Love (since risen to five million). This followed the BMI citation for two million plays (since risen to 3.5m) of Things We Do For Love,In 2002, the 30th anniversary of the band?s debut hit Donna, 10cc began to creep back into the national consciousness. With Gouldman fronting a new touring band, a 28-date UK tour was followed by a series of one-off events across Europe. The band have continued to regularly tour the world ever since. In 2006, Universal records released the TV-advertised, double CD 10cc: Greatest Hits ? And More, and the following year national newspaper the Mail On Sunday produced a special 10-track, cover-mount Best of 10cc Live CD, distributing more than 2.4 million copies throughout the UK and Ireland. The paper reported that sales rose by 232,000 on the day of publication.For the band?s 40th anniversary year in 2012, Universal Records released a new five-CD box set entitled Tenology, featuring 80 tracks chosen by the four original band members.A world tour took 10cc as far and wide as Iceland and Australia, and saw them play London?s Royal Albert Hall for the first time. The landmark concert saw Kevin Godley guest on several numbers including a capella version of Donna./610cc Biography (full version) - page 6After 50 concerts with 10cc that year, Gouldman decided to tour as an acoustic outfit, Heart Full of Songs, which included10cc?s Rick Fenn, Mick Wilson and Mike Stevens. Their set included hits Gouldman wrote for The Hollies, Herman?s Hermits, the Yardbirds and film soundtracks, along with material from his new solo album Love And Work.In 2013, 10cc joined Status Quo for a tour of UK arenas, including London?s 20,000-capacity The O2. In the years since, the band have toured in Australia, Ireland Japan, New Zealand across the UK and Europe and at London?s 60,000-capacity British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park.?Year on year we get busier and busier. It?s great, we love touring and playing together and we get on really well. The audiences these days are very gratifying. You get the people you would expect, who grew up with 10cc, but you also get young kids who know the songs too,? says Gouldman. With four decades of song-writing excellence and a crack band of musicians behind him Gouldman confidently promises, ?This is as near as you?re ever going to get to hearing the perfect 10cc. Hit after hit after hit. It?s relentless. We show no mercy.?The live band?s line-up is:Graham Gouldman-bass, guitars, vocalsRick Fenn - lead guitar, vocals, bass guitarPaul Burgess - drums, percussionIain Hornal - vocals, percussion, guitar, keyboardsKeith Hayman - keyboards, guitar, bass, vocalsPaul has worked with 10cc from the beginning and Rick joined the live band in the mid-?70s. 10cc ?

In this hour, Charles Limb is a surgeon and musician who researches the way creativity works in the brain. He puts jazz musicians inside an fMRI to find out what the brain does during musical improvisation. Bass player Mike Pope is one of his subjects. Anne Strainchamps talks with them about the music and the science. Next, creativity is hard-wired in the human brain, but we could all learn to be more creative. Harvard psychologist Shelley Carson's research has identified seven different modes of creative thinking. She tells Anne Strainchamps how we can all learn to amplify our own creative abilities.Then, imagine beginning your life's work at age 72. In the 1770's, Mary Delaney invented the medium we now call collage. Her collection of botanically-correct floral collages is today housed in the British Museum. Poet Molly Peacock fell in love with the work and the artist and has written a meditation on both and on late-life creativity.Finally, cosmologist Brian Swimme and Religion scholar Mary Evelyn Tucker tell the story of the origins of the universe, from the Big Bang to the present moment. They describe the universe as a story of unceasing creativity. They talk with Steve Paulson about their new book and film, Journey of the Universe. [Broadcast Date: July 4, 2012] 1.

What Is It All but Luminous
17,99 € *

"From the golden-haired, curly-headed half of Simon & Garfunkel--a memoir (of sorts): artful, moving, lyrical impressions of a life that reveal the making of a musician, the evolution of a man; a portrait of a lifelong friendship and of a collaboration that became the most successful singing duo in the roiling age that embraced, and was defined by their pathfinding music. In What Is It All but Luminous, Art Garfunkel writes about growing up in the 1940s and '50s (son of a traveling salesman listening as his father played Enrico Caruso records), a middle-class Jewish boy living in a redbrick semi-attached house on Jewel Avenue in Kew Gardens, Queens, playing chess by day watching the Brooklyn Dodgers on TV by night, feeling his vocal cords "vibrate with the love of sound" from the age of five when he "began to sing with the sense of God's gift running through" him. He writes of meeting Paul Simon, the funny guy who made Art laugh (they met at their graduation play, Alice in Wonderland; Paul was the White Rabbit; Art, the Cheshire Cat). Of their being twelve at the birth of rock 'n' roll--Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bobby Freeman ("It was rhythm and blues. It was black. It was from New Orleans, Chicago, Philadelphia. It was dirty music; 'sexual.' I was captured. So was Paul."), of a demo of their song "Hey, Schoolgirl" for seven dollars and the actual record (with Paul's father on bass) going to #40 on the national charts, selling 150,000 copies. He writes about their becoming Simon & Garfunkel, ruling the pop charts from the age of sixteen, about not being a natural performer but more of a thinker, an underground man. He writes of the hit songs, touring, sex on tour for the thrills, reading books to calm it down, the road to walk it off ... he writes ofhis wife to ease his soul and children to end the aloneness ... about being an actor working with director Mike Nichols ("the greatest of them all"), about choosing music over a PhD in mathematics. And he writes about his long-unfolding split with Paul, and how and why it evolved, and after, learning to perform on his own ... about his voice going south (a stiffening of one of his vocal cords) and working to get it back ... about being a husband, a father, and much more."--Jacket.
