HOMAGE TO CATALONIA
As an homage to Catalonia, I will play Catalan songs of freedom, peace and resistance in every show.
1 RAIMON: JO VINC d’UN SILENCI
Shortly before the death of dictator Franco, Catalan singer-songwriter Raimon performed a new song called “Jo vinc d’un silenci”, meaning ‘I come from a silence”. The singer says that he comes from a place and an age of silence, where common people live and die anonymously. However, these people are now ready to disrupt that silence. You will find translations here: https://www.antiwarsongs.org/canzone.php?lang=en&id=16033
2 MARIA DEL MAR BONET: QUE VOLEN AQUESTA GENT?
Another icon of Catalan culture, singer-songwriter Maria del Mar Bonet performs a song called “Que volen questa gent”: what do these people want? “These people” refers to the regime that oppressed Catalonia to the extent of forbidding Catalan as an official language and to impose censorship on the performance of Catalan songs. She first sang that song in protest against the death of a student… fifty years ago. You will hear the version she sang recently, in protest against the imprisonment of Jordi Sánchez and Jordi Cuixart, both presidents of associations in favour of independence whose crime it seems to be to organise peaceful demonstrations.

BACKGROUND * ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE **
FOXX: THE REVOLT OF EMILY YOUNG
“A concept album co-written by singer/guitarist Pepper Martin and Buzz Cason, the collection was produced by Cason and credited to the studio band Foxx (consisting of bassist Butch Bourque, former Livin’ End drummer Little Joe Martin, singer/rhythm guitarist Martin, and well known studio pro Al Perkins on lead guitar). This is one of those early-1970s albums that’s been largely lost to audiences. Judging by the number of reviews you’ll find, it’s even escaped notice from hardcore collectors with the few on-line reviews tending to be brief and somewhat critical.
That’s unfortunate since the set was actually quite enjoyable and innovative in its own way.. Yeah, it was clearly a product of a certain timeframe and parts of the set haven’t aged all that well (other than wine, few things do), but it’s one of those albums that grows on you the more you listen to it. Like many concept pieces, the plotline to this one was a little vague to my ears, but seemed to follow the birth, childhood, and brief life of namesake Emily Young (along with her impact on family and friends). Songs got you from birth through early adulthood where Emily left home in order to hitchhike across the country”. £
Following Emily’s spiritual search (‘Opus Epyllion (The Age Of Light)’), downfall (‘Flight Termination’), and death (‘Just Another Village Incident’). Kind of a bummer ending … Still, musically the set was quite good. Pepper had one of those chameleon-like voices that was equally at home on country-tinged material (‘Into Something Real’), hard rock (‘Rock Jock Bobby Sloan’), pop (the Beach Boys-styled harmony rich ‘Rebecca’s Prayer’), and even sunshine psych flourishes (‘Sunshine Children’)”.
TEN YEARS AFTER
‘TEN YEARS AFTER released their first album in 1967. And they have a new album out, 50 years after. Now, after the departure of ALVIN LEE the remaining three original members carried on with several replacements but the line-up with singer-guitarist JOE GOOCH Lasted from 2003 till 2014. That year, GOOCH and original member and bass-player LEO LYONS quit to form their own band, HUNDRED SEVENTY SPLIT. That left TYA with two original members: keyboard-player RIC LEE and CHUCK CHURCHILL on drums. They teamed up with bass-player COLIN HOGDKINSON, a most famous bass-player actually, who worked with Chris Farlowe and Spencer Davis just to name a few – and with the much younger singer-guitarist and composter MARCUS BONFANTI, who has been part of the London blues scene for a while, for instance with THE BOOM BOOM BAND.
The four sat together with BONFANTI overseeing the works. All wrote and suggested ideas, with Bonfanti turning them into bona fide songs’ © Eddy Bonte.
