The title of Marshall McLuhan’s book ”The Medium is the Message” has been downsized to a slogan. Anyone really read the book? In fact, the medium is message presented a radically different and refreshing approach to language, thinking, communication, perception, social relations and, eventually, behaviour.… Read more...

My Generation of Sun. 14 & Mon. 15 June: Psychedelic Byrds and Buffalos * Steve Ellis & Cow * Jamul

Psychedelic Byrds and Buffalos * Steve Ellis & Cow: new single * San Diego band Jamul **


THE BYRDS will forever be remembered as the harmony singers of Jingle Jangle mornings. They were, as Barney Hoskyns rightly points out, “Dylanized Beatles”,  David Crosby being a huge Beatles fan. Yet, they also experimented and adventured into psych land quite often, following  the current trends, but also following the many creative sides of the strong personalities in the band. Listen to experimental and  psych Byrds from their albums FIFTH DIMENSION (1966), YOUNGER THAN YESTERDAY (1967)  and NOTORIOUS BYRDS BROTHERS.

BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD weren’t that  adventurous. With only two albums and numerous musical and personal differences to their name, they stuck to harmony and song, even if Stills sounds different from Young.… Read more...

24th Art Rock Show: The Breaking Of The World

Glass Hammer - The Breaking Of The World

Het zeventiende studioalbum van Glass Hammer is een feit. ‘The Breaking Of The World’ wordt door Bob Katz van Digital Domain betiteld als het meest progressieve album van de band tot nog toe. Ons favoriete lijstje deze week: Glass Hammer (The Breaking Of The World), RPWL (Beyond Man And Time), Premiata Forneria Marconi (River of Life – The Manticore Years Anthology 1973-1977), Gentle Giant (Free Hand), Toe (For Long Tomorrow) and Therion (Vovin).

Scot Lade van The Fire Note: “Musically Glass Hammer gives the Prog fan everything they could hope for and then some. There’s not a bad song to be found here. It does seem like Babb and Schendel understand that this is one album that more than a clutch of die-hard fans might hear and approached it with more care than most of their uneven discography.… Read more...

Dichters in de Lucht: Ramsey Nasr & Connie van Binsbergen, woensdag 10 juni, 1600 uur [2015-11 ]

NIEUW, woensdag 10 juni 16 uur (herhaling van 03 juni): RAMSEY NASR & Corrie Van Binsbergen Band: Wonderbaarlijke Maand

Op deze cd, draagt de gewezen Dichter des Vaderlands voor uit eigen werk, begeleid door de Corrie Van Binsbergen Band, of beter: bands, want hier zijn drie verschillende trio’s aan het werk om Nasr te begeleiden. Een flink deel van de muziek werd gecomponeerd door diezelfde Van Binsbergen, een jonge gitariste (°1957)  van opleiding, maar we hebben ook recht op Duke Ellington, Alan Purves en Krysztof Penderecki.
Een donderend spektakel, met de voorlezing van Remco Camperts “Lamento” door Nasr & Campert als bonus. De opnames dateren van 2005 (Campert 2006), de uitgave als audioboek in de reeks Zoem van De Bezige Bij uit 2009.
Extra muziek en poëzie: Leon Rosselson, Ronald D.…

CHARLIE HEBDO:  six months ago…

Radio 68 defends freedom of speech without a “but”. Freedom of speech IS – or is not. Any “but” leads to restrictions which are subjective and surely lead to just more restrictions. There is no freedom without freedom of speech: always, everywhere and for everyone. Anything less is a violation of it.

 A personal message from Paul Boyack to Radio 68:
“Free Speech is what many of us Americans and French see as a human right.… Read more...

My Generation of Sun. 07 & Mo. 08 June: Sing My Title special (Tiny Legs Tim, Don Croissant, Paul Couter), Audience

SPECIAL: Sing My Title (new label) **  PLUS: Audience * Cliff Bennett * Country Weather * Beau Brummels


DON CROISSANT TigerTapes LPcover267

Flemish bluesman / one-man band Tiny Legs Tim founded his own label:  Sing My Title. Not one to stop halfway,  he released  three albums simultaneously  and threw a  launch party with the signed  artists and guestt-friend Roland. .
Says Tiny Tim: “I released my first two albums myself, so when the third was in the can (“Steppin’ Up)”, I thought I might as well set up a real label. I discovered boogie bluesman Don Crossaint aka  Little Jimmy a few years ago and I became an instant fan. When I heard that his album “Tiger Tapes” had been released  on cd only years ago, I thought it deserved a vinyl reissue.… Read more...
