MEXICO CITY: the Masssacre of 2nd October 1968
“On 2 October, ten days before the Olympics were to begin, around ten thousand students gathered in the Plaza of Three Cultures. They were surrounded by thousands of soldiers and armoured vehicles; only in 2001 was it confirmed that dozens of agents provocateurs and snipers were positioned among and around the crowd too. Just after six in the evening, flares were lit and shooting began. Elena Poniatowska collated eyewitness accounts giving a harrowing impression of chaos and confusion.   The crowd of students, as well as local workers and families, were fired upon, and many were killed. The number of dead remains controversial; early, absurdly-low government claims repeated by domestic (and some international) media were replaced over time by suggestions of many dozens – and perhaps hundreds – murdered.” Quoted From / All Rights Reserved:

PSYCHEDELIC STATES: Alabama in the 60s, vol. 2

“The second Alabama instalment in Gear Fab’s fab “Psychedelic States” is more of the same, meaning a mixed bag of Clearasil psychedelia and undersexed garage rock, but it skews enticingly more towards the former sort of weirdness this time around than did the original volume. The compilation still has the good (but not psychedelic) regional hits mixed in with the fourth-rate, mainstream-aping pap (unappetizing even as guilty nostalgic pleasures) and more than its fair share of decent but not-nearly-as-groovy-as-they-thought filler, which is at least of a quality to elicit a giggle or smile the first two or three times through (though that is perhaps one or two more spins than the stuff merits). On the other hand, the relatively significant number of oddball, shaggy-dog nuggets makes the collection worth sifting through, starting right out the box with  The Chimes “#38” and its effects pedal-heavy acid blues. The Distortions do a far-out, yowling (literally) version of the Howlin’ Wold classic “Smokestack Lightning” with some excellent slide guitar work, good enough to get them signed to Mercury. The deliciously named the Outer Mongolian Herd crank out a “Hey Joe” halfway between the Love version of the song and the unhinged nuttiness of “Wooly Bully.” And the infectious, harmony-laden “You’re Playing With Fire” finds  The Male in full-tilt boogie. But perhaps the strangest curiosity, for extra-musical reasons: “Think!!,” a 1968 cut by George Wallace Jr. Yes, the son of the infamous governor. And, yeah, it’s pretty solid”.

‘For many recording artists the goal of a full-length album is to follow a theme or concept to guide the material and present a concise and focused statement. For Kirk Fletcher the target was simple as he explains the theme of his new album “It’s about love, a general love for humanity. I wanted to write songs about more than just boys and girls, and maybe give some answers and hope to this crazy time we live in.”    Kirk’s new studio album “Hold On” is his fifth album as a bandleader and solo artist. The eight original tracks were recorded at Canyon Sound in Bristol, England with a classic organ trio format of Fletcher on guitars and vocals alongside drummer Matt Brown and Jonny Henderson on organ, piano and Wurlitzer. The live off-the-floor sound captured by engineer Nick Dover flows with vibrant energy on a set of tunes that crosses genres from smooth R&B to jamming jazz and deep blues, and soul’ (Quoted From PR-sheet).
Kirk Fletcher also played with The Fabulous Thunderbirds
