ERIC ANDERSEN: BEAT AVENUE

“The 26-minute title track (Beat Avenue) is, in Eric’s words, “part of an ongoing personal ritual of trying to break and burst the borders of the usual safe singer-songwriting approaches.” The song, which Eric has worked on for the past fifteen years, is a hypnotic, cinematic account of a watershed day in world history – November 22, 1963. Combining spoken and half-sung vocals, programmed musical atmospherics, and real instruments, “Beat Avenue” recounts the day, night and immediate aftermath of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination as experienced by the then-20-year-old Andersen, who had hitchhiked to San Francisco to meet and mingle with his Beat Movement heroes.”

Lyrics  excerpt © Eric Andersen:

(…)
So I headed for the Haight
for a poetry read that night
went up with my singin poet friend
David Meltzer and his wife, Tina,
David was a moonlight City Light book clerk
and was heard to say-
the mystery is the ordinary
and the ordinary
is the mystery
and there ain’t no such thing
as ‘coolsville’
climbed those creaky stairs
and sat in blackened room
dull light strung over little stage
Allen Ginsberg just returned
from Buddha’s jukebox
Calcutta and Saigon
he’dd been diamond sutra’d
Banged and cocked
now he was on Columbus Ave.
swathed in smilin white
but tonight the air was sick and bruised
he was dressed in black (…)

WILY BO WALKER & DANY FLAM BIG BAND: “Appointment in Samarra”, after W.S. Maugham

Inspired by the short story ‘The Appointment in Samarra’ as retold by W. Somerset Maugham in 1933…
The speaker is Death
There was a merchant in Bagdad who sent his servant to market to buy provisions and in a little while the servant came back, white and trembling, and he said, “Master, just now when I was in the marketplace I was jostled by a woman in the crowd and when I turned I saw it was Death that jostled me. She looked at me and made a threatening gesture. Now, lend me your horse, and I will ride away from this city and avoid my fate.  I will go to Samarra and there Death will not find me”
The merchant lent him his horse, and the servant mounted it, and he dug his spurs in its flanks and as fast as the horse could gallop he went.
Then the merchant went down to the marketplace and he saw me standing in the crowd and he came to me and said, “Why did you make a threatening gesture to my servant when you saw him this morning?”
“That was not a threatening gesture” I said, “it was only a start of surprise.  I was astonished to see him in Bagdad, for I had an appointment with him tonight in Samarra”

Brigitte Fontaine Libido

Freedom of speech is about what you say – content, subject matter. But there’s no freedom of content without the freedom of voices:  the way you say it, the form of expression. The best way to guarantee a wide variety of ideas, is to guarantee a wide variety of voices: prose and  poetry, film and print , the body and the tongue, music and speech. This implies the use of many languages.
The repression of languages is a sure sign of dictatorship. Upon arrival in America, African slaves who spoke the same language were separated on a linguistic basis and thus had no choice but to communicate in the voice of their rulers. Not one African language survived in the USA. Since rulers can only physically eradicate a small part of the population without endangering their own position, oppressors make a point of forbidding languages and imposing their own, knowing that one’s mother-tongue is the most perfect vehicle of expression, thought, knowledge and culture. Franco repressed the language of the Catalonians: it was not taught at school; books, lyrics, radio and tv were allowed, but censored. All education and schooling was in Spanish. In France, French was declared the only official language of the Republic and all others were eradicated, e;g. Flemish, Occitan, Basque and Breton. The English did the same with the Celtic languages of Scotland, Wales and Cornwall and Northern Ireland. Very soon, most languages of the Eskimo will have disappeared. The list is endless.
That is why Radio 68 broadcasts a wide variety of voices and languages.

Enrico Macias Enfantsdetouspays pochette

LAURENTIUS VAN ACKER zingt in het Oostends over Oostende.  Over de “maole (maalboot), de tijd van toen, de macht van het geld (alles is afgebroken),  maar ook over de liefde en de liefde voor zijn stad.
ENRICO MACIAS
Born Gaston Ghrenassia in  a Jewish family in Algeria in 1938, he fled to France with his family and embarked on a  successful career as a French ‘chansonnier’ in the early sixties, building a large following outside France as well.  Never one to protest in the streets and wear long hair or adapt hippie attitudes, Enrico Macias nevertheless made love and brotherhood one of his main themes. ‘Enfants de tous pays’ (Children of all countries) or ‘Mon ami, mon frère’ (My friend, my brother) need no further explanation.
SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE
There is a clear message on their the album “Stand!’ from 1969: Sly Stone wanted all discrimination and racism to stop. He played multiracial music with a multiracial band, blowing up borders between various genres and creating funk along the way.  He sings both ‘Don’t Call Me Nigger, Whitey’ and ‘Don’t Call Me Whitey, Nigger’. He wants people to stand proud, be themselves and act.  (www.allmusic.com)

Stand!”

Stand
In the end you’ll still be you
One that’s done all the things you set out to do
Stand
There’s a cross for you to bear
Things to go through if you’re going anywhere
Stand
For the things you know are right
It s the truth that the truth makes them so uptight
Stand
All the things you want are real
You have you to complete and there is no deal
Stand. stand, stand
Stand. stand, stand
Stand
You’ve been sitting much too long

There’s a permanent crease in your right and wrong
Stand
There’s a midget standing tall
And the giant beside him about to fall
Stand. stand, stand
Stand. stand, stand
Stand
They will try to make you crawl
And they know what you’re saying makes sense and all
Stand
Don’t you know that you are free
Well at least in your mind if you want to be

Everybody
Stand, stand, stand

BRIGITTE FONTAINE

« Un disque de Brigitte Fontaine ne ressemble à rien d’autre… qu’à un disque de Brigitte Fontaine. Dissonant, étonnant, provocant. Et inégal. Preuve encore avec celui-ci, qui recèle des instants rares de force et d’audace, mais aussi des morceaux franchement lourdauds. Côté réussites : La Viande, sorte d’inventaire à la Prévert de la bidoche dans tous ses états, qui nous ramène à notre état primal d’animal ; Château intérieur, aux méandres labyrinthiques ; Ex Paradis, où la poétesse parvient à toucher l’essentiel par le pouvoir d’évocation des images qui jaillissent de sa plume. Son verbe chahuté devient alors d’autant plus puissant qu’il s’épanouit sur de douces mélodies, de soyeux tapis de cordes tissés par le très fidèle Areski « . www.telerama.fr

Robb Johnson: Bring Down the Moon ** Stijn Vranken **

ROBB JOHNSON: Bring Down The Moon ** Stijn Vranken: exclusief gesprek en exclusieve voorleessessie uit “Maak plaats van mij”

Johnson zingt over verzet en uitbuiting, maar moed, doorzettingsvermogen en hoop op beterschap markeren evengoed zijn boodschap. Om het met het grafschrift van Herbert Marcuse te zeggen: Weiter machen!
De cd begint en eindigt met nummers die hoop uitstralen. Het titel- én openingslied “Bring Down the Moon” suggereert om de maan uit de hemel te plukken en ze in onze woonkamer te plaatsen. De maan staat hier natuurlijk symbool voor dromerij en liefde – bij verliefde koppels hoort maneschijn… En zie, daar verschijnen de magiërs, de reizigers, de reuzen, windmolens en Spaanse kastelen zelfs, een overduidelijke verwijzing naar Don Quixote, alweer een man met “Weiter machen” als devies. De plaat eindigt met “Call Me Tonight” en de filosofische bedenking “Sometimes the universe delivers”. Soms komt universum komt zijn belofte na, dit wil zeggen: er is een zin. Nu en dan valt alles netjes in de plooi, ja, zelfs de zeemzoete happy ends van de tv-film zijn acceptabel. Soms moet je de dingen gewoon op hun beloop laten, de zingeving volgt wel.  Met de nadruk op soms, want de dingen op hun beloop laten, dat is niet bepaalde de forte van Johnson en daar handelt de rest van de cd dus net niet over!

SUPER WAGNER (PAS) LA HAUT

(G. Garrigues)

POUR QU’ON RESTE SAGE

ON VEUT NOUS FAIRE CROIRE
QU’AU DESSUS DES NUAGES
IL Y A L’ESPOIR
OUBLIONS CETTE COMEDIE
ON TROUVE ICI NOTRE PARADIS
N’ATTENDONS PAS D’ETRE EN HAUT
EN HAUT, EN HAUT, EN HAUT

IL FAUT APPRECIER
TOUS LES BONS MOMENTS
ET RECOMMENCER
QUE CA DURE LONGTEMPS
NE PAS CROIRE CETTE COMEDIE
ON TROUVE ICI NOTRE PARADIS
N’ATTENDONS PAS D’ETRE EN HAUT
EN HAUT, EN HAUT, EN HAUT

POURQUOI FAIRE CONFIANCE
ENVERS L’INVISIBLE
METTONS LA JOUISSANCE
AU CŒUR DE LA CIBLE

IDEM POUR L’ENFER
DONT NOUS SOMMES MENACES
FAUT PAS SE LAISSER FAIRE
PAR TOUS CES CURES
AGISSONS SUIVANT NOS ENVIES
ON TROUVE ICI NOTRE PARADIS
SANS ALLER VOIR LA HAUTLA HAUT, LA HAUT, LA HAUT
