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

PAT BOYACK with Ruthie Foster, Marcia Ball, W.C. Clark, Sweetpea Atkinson & Larry Fulcher: VOICES FROM THE STREET. Radio 68 plays the entire album, including the hidden track!

Pat Boyack - Voices From The Street - Hand

A personal message from Paul Boyack to Radio 68:
“Free Speech is what many of us Americans and French see as a human right. Free Speech has given those who enjoy it opportunities, be it through political means or for the sake of artistic exploration. It is a WONDERFUL thing and for those of us raised around freedom it’s a common element in our daily lives. We cherish it, we will die for it. We do this not for selfish reasons but for the betterment of the human race and for future generations. Time will show the greatest advancement of human development has come since the fight for Free Speech. History will also show that the lack of that right pulls human development back. My heart goes out to those in France in what has recently happened. I have visited France many times and have always left with a feeling of betterment. The people are so giving with open minds and hearts. Thank you Free Speech.” – Pat Boyack http://www.patboyack.com

A bout the album Voices From the Street:
“Guitarist/songwriter Pat Boyack’s past recordings, under his own name, as a guest on W.C. Clark’s albums and as a member of the Marcia Ball Band, were merely an impressive prelude to the socially-conscious soul sessions which produced “Voices from the Street”. With Boyack’s clean, clear and creative guitar work fronting a fine and funky all-star band “Voices From the Street” utilizes sensational singing to deliver a solid assortment of soulful message music.
Marcia Ball, with a full horn section behind her, sings two songs, including the uptempo gem “Listen to Me”. W.C. Clark is heard on Boyack’s deep soul ballad “First Comes the Grievin’ “, as well as on the ’70s message tune “The Power Is Gone”. Ruthie Foster is featured on three tracks, including the surprisingly upbeat “Misery” (co-written by Boyack). Ruthie, like Marcia, had such a good time at the sessions that she stuck around to do the female backing vocals.
Honorary Austinite Sweetpea Atkinson, of Lyle Lovett, Bonnie Raitt, Was/Not Was and Boneshakers fame, is featured on three fervent funk workouts. The album’s rousing finale finds all the vocalists soulfully testifying on the populist anthem “Time” (Has Come Today) with each singer taking a verse of the Chambers Brothers psychedelic protest classic.
