SPECIALS 

PAUL PERSONNE

Almost unknown outside his home country, that’s France, Paul Personne has proved again and again that, yes, the French can sing the blues and that they can do so in the French language as well –  with great effect. Radio 68 chose tracks from “Puzzle 14é (2014) and the magnificent live double cd “Il était une fois sur la route”.
« Aujourd’hui, avec “Puzzle 14” (anno 2014), Paul Personne se rappelle à notre bon souvenir avec un disque que l’on n’hésitera pas à qualifier d’excellent. On retrouve ici les qualités qui ont toujours distingué Paul Personne : un jeu de guitare aiguisé et précis, ainsi que de belles paroles dans les chansons. Son “Puzzle 14” est une collection de pièces glanées dans la vie (“Ça fait mal”), les amours (“Mainmise”“Un peu jaloux”), la défense des grandes causes (“Pour quelle bonne raison”“Pardon animal” ou le désir d’évasion (“Partir aujourd’hui”“M’envoler plus haut”). Une fois assemblé, tout ceci donne un album dense et captivant, dégoulinant de giclées de guitare électriques (“Ça fait mal”, qu’on écoute assis sur sa chaise et bouche bée) ou environné de brumes tranquilles, romantiques ou désespérées (“Une journée”“Un peu jaloux”, qu’on écoute un mouchoir à la main) ».

OOSTENDE ROCKT

Swallows BUnch In het teken van de sol - TITELPAGINA

Met uitzondering van The Swallows en The Bunch, moet het verhaal van de Oostendse pop en rock eigenlijk nog worden geschreven. Dat is merkwaardig, want iedereen weet dat Arno van Oostende afkomstig is en voor zijn internationale doorbraak als soloartiest actief was in T.C. Matic, Tjens Couter en helemaal in het begin in Freckleface.
En dan is er nog Sylvain / Sylveer Vanholme, bekend van The Wallace Collection en Sylvester’s Team. Nog vroeger, sloot deze Veurnaar van geboorte zich aan bij de Oostendse lgroep The Seabirds. The Seabirds hebben overigens wellicht de eerste Vlaamse protestsong op hun naam staan – en misschien ook de eerste Franstalige protestnummer van een Belgische groep, want dit rockende protest werd in beide landstalen uitgebracht.
Een groep die het niet maakte, maar wel twee singles uitbracht (1970-71) en in ons land aan de wieg stond van de  psychedelic rock, is  Braincancer. Medestichter Eric Allary is overigens nog altijd actief.
Het verhaal van The Swallows en The Bunch, werd gelukkig op papier gezet door Laurentius Van Acker, die in beide groepen een hoofdrol speelde en tot op vandaag actief blijft als zanger, gitarist en componist.

RAY PHILLIPS (The Nashville Teens, The British Invasion All Stars)
Ray  was a founder member and lead singer of the Nashville Teens in 1962. They had a huge hit with Tobacco Road and a minor one with Google Eye. In 1990 Ray Phillips recorded a CD called “Regression” with The British Invasion All-Stars. In addition to Ray these were Jim McCarty of The Yardbirds, Eddie Phillips (no relation) of The Creation, and Don Craine and Keith Grant of The Downliners Sect. A year later, they released a second album (“United”) with the same personnel, plus guests Dick Taylor, Mick Green and Phil May. A compilation of both cds is available; contact Don via http://www.downlinersect.com
RADIO 68 plays The Nashville Teens and tracks from “United”.  See also Tales From the Woods

TALES FROM THE WOODS
Tales From the Woods call themselves a MAGAZINE and a ROOTS MUSIC NETWORKING GROUP. They have a website, issue a magazine, broadcast their own show on Radio Sutch, get together regularly as a band of mates and… organize gigs.

Arnold, Cliff Bennett (solo and with his Rebel Rousers and Ray Phillips (see also Ray Phillips).

LOUIS CENNAMO
Louis David Cennamo (born 5 March 1946) was bass guitarist with an early line up of  HE HERD (pre-Frampton), the original line-up of RENAISSANCE (with Keith Relf),  and two bands that developed from  Renaissance –  ARMAGEDDON and ILLUSION. He also played bass with COLOSSEUM (Daughter Of Time) and heavy rockers JODY GRIND, not to mention the numerous albums he played on, such as the first album by JAMES TAYLOR (Apple protégé) or AL STEWART’s Zero She Flies.  Throughout, there is a connection with the Relfs (Keith and Jane) and that other Yardbird – drummer, singer and composer Jim McCarty.   More recently,  Cennamo is active in jazz bands and also performs poetry.
RADIO 68  PLAYS  songs featuring  Louis Cennamo  on bass (of course) in both the sixties and blues section: The Herd, Jody Grind, Al Stewart, Colosseum, James Stewart and Renaissance
