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”.

“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 (…) ”.

THE PRETTY THINGS/ LIVE AT THE 100 CLUB
There are few people in the world that I look up to more than Pretty Things vocalist and songwriter Phil May and one of my proudest moments was opening for the Things at this very venue a few years ago. May calls me ‘Sargeant Major’, tongue in cheek, but he can call me anything he likes…. This splendid, inventive and fiery bunch have been entertaining blues/rock/psych lovers for 50 years – ever colourful, punchy and above all skilful. Their writing is streets ahead of most acts and Parachute has to be one of English Rock’s finest ever achievements… even those mutts at Rolling Stone magazine had to concur, when it was released. But here, it’s the roaring, smokin’ R&B side of the Things that is celebrated as Paul Madden and Bobby Whelan in tandem with PT champion Mark St John capture May Taylor and co recreating their very first black cover Fontana album! Setting up in mere minutes on a cold December evening in 2010 after Paul McCarthorse decide to play a lunchtime show that very day, the crew manage to record these splendid musicians at full throttle….so from the opener Bo’s RoadRunner we can enjoy new live renditions of songs that fired up the Things into what they became. Big City, Honey I Need, Oh Baby Doll. The gems tumble out of the speakers.
Find me a band outside The Strypes and Temples that have anything approaching this level of energy today… Taylor is still the stinging, melodic axemaster we loved back then, May is born to deliver these great numbers and the ensemble rocks the house.

MY REPORTS ON THE PRETTY THINGS Live: https://www.eddybonte.be/just-good-music/pop/pretty-things/
Radio 68 is happy to present a new show: MY GENERATION LONGPLAYTIME. The concept of LONGPLAYTIME is simple: we will play full albums, album sides or selected album tracks. We stress overlooked, forgotten, ignored, misjudged, rare, non-commercial and media-banned music and artists, throwing in a hit album for good measure. All from or related to the sixties – of course! Thanks, Ed **
OVER LANGPSPEELTIJD We presenteren we met plezier een nieuwe show: LANGSPEELTIJD. De idee achter LANGSPEELTIJD is eenvoudig: we draaien volledige albums, LP-kanten of een keuze uit een langspeelplaat. We hebben vooral oog voor muziek en artiesten die vallen onder de categorieën “vergeten, vreemd, geweerd, over het hoofd gezien, verkeerd begrepen, gecensureerd, zeldzaam “. Met nu een dan een dikke hit ertussen. Geniet van de langSPEELTIJD. Bedankt, Ed
