ACHTERGROND ** BACKGROUND 

THE KINKS ARE THE VILLAGE GREEN PRESERVATION SOCIETY
“All at once promoting and poking fun at the bourgeois obsession with respectability and uniformity first broached on “A Well Respected Man”, singer-songwriter Ray Davies presents a sedate alternative to the tumultuous urban landscape of London. Reaching back to a time when life wasn’t quite so caustic and frustrating, The Kinks journey  “far from all the soot and noise of the city”. Behind the English countryside’s façade of stale traditions and kitschy fixations, there’s a path to quiet serenity that leads straight through the Village Green. The Kinks’ sixth LP in just four years, KAVGPS has the band embracing personal and societal vestiges – leafy sanctuaries, frayed childhood bonds, and mouldy snapshots of idyllic family vacations”.

INDEX
“In the mid 1960’s, Detroit Michigan was a thriving industrial city. It was at the edge of a cliff, however. The great ethnic diversity in the inner city was a brewing powder keg of civil unrest. This, coupled with a disillusioned population struggling to make some sense of a questionable war in the rice paddies of Viet Nam, set an uneasy and troubling tempo for the future. Still, there were pockets of communities in the Detroit area where things were good and economic life was vibrant. The Grosse Pointes were such communities. It was on the outskirts of this political and racially tense era, in the affluent suburbs just outside of the city of Detroit, that Index was formed. The music of Index has been lauded by music heads for decades, and with good reason: it is bizarre, atmospheric, and “home-made” (in the best of all possible ways); the band has a druggie sound, with songs full of feedback and fuzzy guitars, hazy guitar riffs and loud rhythms. Hidden amongst the echoing canyons of sound there’s some snotty post-punk attitude wrapped up in that trippy velvet fuzz; a wonderful bleak sound, both droning and murky — the atonal side of late 1960’s rock that would leave the most lasting impression on those who would eventually become punk, post-punk and indie rock artists like Joy Division or the Fall (…) ”.

 J.H. HUTTO: HAWK SQUAT
“It’s raw electric Chicago blues. It’s not polished. It’s not slick. It’s some people’s idea of what the electric blues ought to be. (…)the National Blues Foundation inducted Hawk Squat into its Hall of Fame for “Classic of Blues Recording: Album” (…). According to Dusty Groove.com, “Hutto’s a killer right from the start – singing and playing [slide] with a ferocity that easily matches, if not beats, the bigger ‘60s names on Chess Records….” Helping Hutto catapult to fame (…), are Lee Jackson on guitar, Sunnyland Slim on piano and organ, Junior Pettis, Dave Myers, and Herman Hassell on bass, Frank Kirkland on drums, and Maurice McIntyre on tenor sax”.

SUPER SESSION
“In the space of months, the soundscape of rock shifted radically from short, danceable pop songs to comparatively longer works with more attention to technical and musical subtleties. Enter the unlikely all-star triumvirate of Al Kooper (piano/organ/ondioline/vocals/guitars), Mike Bloomfield (guitar), and Stephen Stills (guitar) — all of whom were concurrently “on hiatus” from their most recent engagements. Kooper had just split after masterminding the groundbreaking Child Is Father to the Man (1968) version of Blood, Sweat & Tears. Bloomfield was fresh from a stint with the likewise brass-driven Electric Flag, while Stills was late of Buffalo Springfield and still a few weeks away from a full-time commitment to David Crosby and Graham Nash. Although the trio never actually performed together, the long-player was notable for idiosyncratically featuring one side led by the team of Kooper/Bloomfield and the other by Kooper/Stills. The band is fleshed out with the powerful rhythm section of Harvey Brooks (bass) and Eddie Hoh (drums) as well as Barry Goldberg (electric piano) on “Albert’s Shuffle” and “Stop.”’.
