    Πριν λίγες ημέρες κυκλοφόρησε ο νέος Μετρονόμος (τεύχος 61) μ’ ένα πολυσέλιδο αφιέρωμα στον σπουδαίο Νίκο Παπάζογλου (1948-2011). Το περιοδικό έχει 88 σελίδες συνολικώς, οι 50 εκ των οποίων αφορούν στον Παπάζογλου, ενώ προσφέρεται και CDμ’ ένα (ακόμη όχι πολύ γνωστό) τραγούδι του από τονΕρωτόκριτο του Βασίλη Ρώτα, σε μουσική Πάρη Παρασχόπουλου (το πλήρες CD κυκλοφόρησε πριν λίγους μήνες επίσης από τον Μετρονόμο).
    Δεν χρειάζεται να πούμε, τώρα εδώ, πόσο σημαντικός υπήρξε ο Νίκος Παπάζογλου για το ελληνικό τραγούδι. Τα γράφουν εξάλλου όλοι όσοι συμμετέχουν με κείμενά τους στο περιοδικό (Θανάσης Γιώγλου, Σταύρος Καρτσωνάκης, Θανάσης Συλιβός, Αλέξης Βάκης, Αντώνης Μποσκοΐτης, Ναταλί Χατζηαντωνίου κ.ά.), ενώ γράφω κι εγώ κάποια σχετικά που αφορούν στο ροκ παρελθόν τού θεσσαλονικιού τραγουδοποιού.

    Είναι αλήθεια πως γύρω από αυτό ακριβώς το «ροκ παρελθόν» έχουν γραφεί κατά καιρούς διάφορες ανακρίβειες και ήταν ευκαιρία, μέσω του συγκεκριμένου κειμένου, να αποκατασταθεί όσο γινόταν η σωστή ιστορία.
    Τις περισσότερες, δε, απ’ αυτές τις ανακρίβειες μαζεμένες τις έχει αραδιάσει ο άσχετος μ’ αυτά τα θέματα Χρήστος Βασιλόπουλος στην πρόσφατη τηλεοπτική εκπομπή του «Η Μηχανή του Χρόνου» (ΕΡΤ1), που αναφερόταν στον Παπάζογλου (9/7/2016).
    Εκεί, ανάμεσα σε άλλα, ακούμε τον Βασιλόπουλο, με το ύφος και το στόμφο τού ειδήμονα, να λέει:
    «Στα τέλη της δεκαετίας του ’60 η νεολαία της Θεσσαλονίκης ξεσηκώνεται από τους ρυθμούς των τραγουδιών ενός νέου ροκ συγκροτήματος με την ονομασία Μακεδονομάχοι».
    Οι Μακεδονομάχοι δεν ήταν συγκρότημα της δεκαετίας του ’60, αλλά των early seventies.
    «Μαζί του στο γκρουπ είναι ο Γιάννης Καντζός και ο Μίμης Αντωνόπουλος».
    Στους Μακεδονομάχους δεν συμμετείχε ο Μίμης Αντωνόπουλος.
    «Συνολικά ο Παπάζογλου συμμετείχε σε τέσσερα συγκροτήματα. Όλα έπαιζαν ξένα τραγούδια. Το πρώτο ήταν οι Golden Boys, που διαλύθηκε γιατί οι δύο από τους τρεις πήγαν φαντάροι».
    Ο Παπάζογλου υπήρξε βασικό μέλος σε πέντε συγκροτήματα (Ronnie and Those, Olympians, Blow Up, Μακεδονομάχοι, Ζηλωτής) και όχι σε τέσσερα, ενώ πέρασε για ένα βράδυ από τους M.G.C. και τους Fratelli. Ο Παπάζογλου δεν υπήρξε μέλος των Golden Boys, ενώ υπήρξε μέλος των Ronnie and Those και των Blow Up, οι οποίοι δεν αναφέρονται καν στην εκπομπή του Βασιλόπουλου.
    «Όταν απολύθηκε από το στρατό ο Πασχάλης ο Παπάζογλου συνέχισε με τους Fratelli».
    Ο Παπάζογλου δεν υπήρξε μέλος των Fratelli. Τραγούδησε μόνο για… ένα φεγγάρι (Τάσος Ψαλτάκης).
    «Φυσικά κι αυτό το συγκρότημα διαλύθηκε όταν ο ίδιος πήγε φαντάρος».
    Φυσικά, οι Fratelli δεν διαλύθηκαν επειδή πήγε φαντάρος κάποιος που δεν ήταν μέλος τους.
    «Το επόμενο συγκρότημα που δημιουργεί ήταν οι Μακεδονομάχοι, που έκαναν θραύση».
    Δεν δημιούργησε, μόνος του, ο Παπάζογλου τους Μακεδονομάχους. Οι Μακεδονομάχοι ήταν μια μετεξέλιξη των Fratelli (όχι με τα ίδια ακριβώς μέλη).
    Τέλος πάντων στο περιοδικό θα διαβάσετε για το πώς ακριβώς έχουν τα πράγματα…
    Πέραν όλων τούτων ο νέος Μετρονόμος συμπληρώνεται με μια συνέντευξη του Σταύρου Ξαρχάκου στον Θανάση Θ. Νιάρχο, μια συνέντευξη της στιχουργού Ελένης Φωτάκη στον Σπύρο Αραβανή, ένα κείμενο για την μαντινάδα του Κώστα Φασουλά, μια συζήτηση του Γιώργου Αλτή με τον λαϊκό κοντραμπασίστα Αντώνη Τζίκα και με άλλα διάφορα.
    Ένα πολύ «γεμάτο», για ακόμη μια φορά, τεύχος, ενός μουσικού περιοδικού που το παλεύει με τον καλύτερο δυνατό τρόπο.

    The most immediately shocking thing about Shirley Collins’ seventh album is that it exists at all. Collins may be one of the folk revival’s most revered song collectors and vocalists, but for more than 30 years she was famous for not singing at all. She last released a new album in 1978, by which point her voice was already, she claimed, “letting her down” in the wake of a messy split from her husband, fellow musician Ashley Hutchings. “My voice got damaged, my ego got damaged, and my heart and everything,” she said, years later. “And I stopped being able to sing.”

    The same year, during a performance of Lark Rise at the National Theatre, she opened her mouth to sing and nothing came out: she was later diagnosed with dysphonia, and retired from performance. That, most observers assumed, was that, but most observers had reckoned without the apparently fathomless powers of persuasion possessed by David Tibet, mastermind of experimental folk group Current 93 and something of a past master in encouraging lost esoteric artists – ranging from falsetto-voiced late 60s oddity Tiny Tim to wildly obscure krautrock band Sand – back to the spotlight, or at least something approaching it. He reissued her old recordings and enlisted Collins into Current 93’s remarkable rotating cast of collaborators, which also includes Björk, Andrew WK, former Crass frontman Steve Ignorant and experimental doom metal band Om, first to perform spoken-word pieces, then to sing, then finally performing a brief support slot at a 2014 London show, her first live appearance in 35 years.

    Collins’ performances at the Current 93 gig and live appearance during her 80th birthday celebrations at Cecil Sharp House in London were rapturously received, but understandably a little tentative in tone. That sets them at odds with Lodestar: the second shocking thing about the album is how little it sounds like a one made by an 82-year-old who last recorded an album when Jim Callaghan was prime minister and Boney M were the biggest-selling band of the year. From the off, Lodestar is a strikingly confident and uncompromising album. The opening track features four different pieces of music: Awake Awake is filled with dire presentiments, images of rotting flesh and visions of imminent apocalypse – “repent, repent, sweet England, for dreadful days are near” – and bisected by a droning, ominous hurdy-gurdy and pipe instrumental by Ossian Brown, once of Coil, latterly one half of Cyclobe. It morphs into a May carol that carries the ineffable suggestion of something sinister lurking behind the good wishes, and finally into a sparse morris dance, complete with jangling leg-bells. The latter is perky and possessed of a pretty tune, but still feels oddly melancholy, as if the darkness of the track’s opening has somehow seeped into it.

    Frontiers Music Srl will release the new Glenn Hughes solo album, “Resonate”, on Friday, November 4.

    From album opener “Heavy” to the very last chords of the closer “Long Time Gone”, it promises to be a contender for “Album Of The Year” on many a list. It features his live solo band members, Søren Andersen (guitars and co-producer), Pontus Engborg (drums) and newcomer to his band, Lachy Doley (keyboards), in addition to long-time friend and drummer, Chad Smith (of RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS), who joined them in the studio for the opening and closing numbers.

  • 11/03/16--08:05: Look South (EP)
  • Based in Algeria, the El Foukr R’Assembly  is a rarity among North African bands in that they really take their “Africanness” seriously. Where many in this part of the continent identify more with their Arabian than their sub-Saharan neighbors, this group has shown deep fascination with music and culture to the south. Hence the title of this impressive six-song EP.

    Afropop first learned about El Foukr R’Assembly when the group made a musical expedition to Ghana a couple of years back, and collaborated with musicians there. El Foukr’s YouTube channel includes a number of videos from that and other adventures. The band describes Look South as a “sound manifesto” created as they traveled around North Africa and the Sahel meeting and collaborating with musicians in remote places.

    The exuberant energy of rai music animates these tracks, but equally important is the hypnotic trance of desert ritual, accented by hand clapping and ululating. These two strands intertwine in satisfying hybrid pop songs that showcase passionate North African vocals. “Medley With A Lady” juxtaposes an ecstatic vocal performance by El Foukr’s lead singer Amine Lehchili with that of a Tuareg female guest, Aicha Macher.

    “Pain Retreat” sets a text by the iconic Sufi poet Rumi within a lively 12/8 groove, propelled by acoustic guitar strumming and tempered by an ambient ruminating flute. “Saharan Redemption,” recorded near the Algeria-Niger border, channels Tuareg desert folk, once again emphasizing poetry, this time Hausa/Tuareg verse, which begins the track with spoken words. “Unarmed Corpse” builds from a spare soundscape of deep-toned plucked strings and what sounds like Indonesian kettle gongs punctuated by the periodic boom of a large frame drum, intensifying gradually into a house-inspired dance track. But the real hook here is Lehchili’s mellifluous, yearning vocal.

    “Haggard Wanderer” revamps the rock-rai sound of Algeria in the ‘80s, with a catchy, distorted guitar hook and retro organ flourishes. Equally rocking is the electric guitar riffing and raggedly lyrical vocal of another guest, Seddik Selimane, on “Sand Reminiscence.” In all a solidly engaging North Africa roots-pop romp. We look forward to a full album, and hopefully a U.S. tour.
