Craang - To The Estimated Size Of The Universe (2014)




Craang is a three piece psychedelic heavy rock band from Thessaloniki, Greece - Two guys and one gal groovin’ around with huge crash cymbals, drone fuzz pedals and lots of rock jam stoner psych.

Their first album “To The Estimated Size Of The Universe” was self produced and released on CD in May 2014 which very quickly sold out. Later in September of the same year they signed with Pink Tank Records (DE) and in February 2015 they released a limited edition vinyl of the same album in collaboration with Hevisike Records (UK) in three colors, which was pre-ordered and sold almost out of existence before official release. 

Craang’s music is a mixture of psychedelic melodies supported by ripping bass
riffs and huge drum sounds. Their heaviness creates a long lasting drone sound with erupting crescendos and long jamming bluesy parts that please even the most demanding of ears.

Murray Bookchin - Ιεραρχία και Κυριαρχία






Murray Bookchin (January 14, 1921 – July 30, 2006)[5] was an American anarchist and libertarian socialist author, orator, historian, and political theoretician. A pioneer in the ecology movement,[6] Bookchin initiated the critical theory ofsocial ecology within anarchist, libertarian socialist, and ecological thought. He was the author of two dozen books covering topics in politics, philosophy, history, urban affairs, and ecology. Among the most important were Our Synthetic Environment, Post-Scarcity Anarchism, and The Ecology of Freedom. In the late 1990s he became disenchanted with the increasingly apolitical lifestylism of the contemporary anarchist movement (see: lifestyle anarchism) and stopped referring to himself as an anarchist. Instead, he founded his own libertarian socialist ideology called Communalism.[7]

Bookchin was an anti-capitalist and vocal advocate of the decentralisation of society along ecological and democratic lines. His writings on libertarian municipalism, a theory of face-to-face, assembly democracy, had an influence on theGreen movement and anti-capitalist direct action groups such as Reclaim the Streets.

Brian Eno - Before and After Science (1977)






Before and After Science is the fifth studio album by British musician Brian Eno. Produced by Eno and Rhett Davies, it was originally released by Polydor Records in December 1977. Guest musicians from the United Kingdom and Germany helped with the album, including members of Roxy Music, Free, Fairport Convention, Can and Cluster. Over one hundred tracks were written with only ten making the album's final cut. The musical styles of the album range from energetic and jagged to the later tracks which are more languid and pastoral.

The album marks Eno's last foray into rock music for the 1970s as a solo artist, with all his remaining albums of the decade showcasing more of Eno's avant-garde and ambient music, which was hinted at on the second half of Before and After Science. The album was Eno's second to chart in the United States. The song "King's Lead Hat", an anagram for Talking Heads, was remixed and released as a single although it didn't chart in the United Kingdom. Critical response to the album has remained positive, with several critics calling it one of Eno's best works.

Fela kuti & africa 70 - Zombie {1977}




                                                                download

Zombie is a studio album by Nigerian Afrobeat musician Fela Kuti. It was released in Nigeria by Coconut Records in 1976, and in the United Kingdom by Creole Records in 1977.[1]

The album criticised the Nigerian government; and it is thought to have resulted in the murder of Kuti's motherFunmilayo Ransome-Kuti, and the destruction of his commune by the military.

The album was a scathing attack on Nigerian soldiers using the zombie metaphor to describe the methods of the Nigerian military. The album was a smash hit with the people and infuriated the government, setting off a vicious attack against the Kalakuta Republic (a commune that Fela had established in Nigeria), during which one thousand soldiers attacked the commune. Kuti was severely beaten, and his elderly mother was thrown from a window, causing fatal injuries. The Kalakuta Republic was burned, and Kuti's studio, instruments, and master tapes were destroyed. Kuti claimed that he would have been killed if it were not for the intervention of a commanding officer as he was being beaten. Kuti's response to the attack was to deliver his mother's coffin to the main army barrack in Lagos and write two songs, "Coffin for Head of State" and "Unknown Soldier", referencing the official inquiry that claimed the commune had been destroyed by an unknown soldier.

Kuti and his band then took residence in Crossroads Hotel as the Shrine had been destroyed along with his commune. In 1978 Kuti married 27 women, many of whom were his dancers, composers, and singers to mark the anniversary of the attack on the Kalakuta Republic. Later, he was to adopt a rotation system of keeping only twelve simultaneous wives.[5] The year was also marked by two notorious concerts, the first in Accra in which riots broke out during the song "Zombie," which led to Kuti being banned from entering Ghana. The second was at the Berlin Jazz Festival after which most of Kuti's musicians deserted him, due to rumors that Kuti was planning to use the entirety of the proceeds to fund his presidential campaign.

Review by Sam Samuelson


Zombie was the most popular and impacting record that Fela Anikulopo Kuti and Africa 70 would record -- it ignited the nation to follow Fela's lead and antagonize the military zombies that had the population by the throat. Fela is direct and humorous in his attack as he barks out commands to the soldiers like: "Attention! Double up! Fall In! Fall out! Fall down! Get ready!" Meanwhile, his choir responds with "Zombie!" in between each statement. Since the groove was so absolutely contagious, it took the nation by storm: People in the street would put on a blank stare and walk with hands affront proclaiming "Zombie!" whenever they would see soldiers. If "Zombie" caught the attention of the populous it also cought the attention of the authority figures -- this would cause devastating personal and professional effects as the Nigerian government came down on him with absolute brute force not long after the release of this record. Also included are "Monkey Banana," a laid-back groove that showcases drummer Tony Allen's mastery of the Afro-beat, and "Everything Scatter," a standard mid-tempo romp. Both songs are forgetful in relation to "Zombie," but this is still an essential disc to own for the title track alone.

Υπεραστικοί - Ρουά ματ (ε7)




Ρουά ματ (ε7)

Απ' το τζάκι του μπροστά ο αφέντης χρόνια,
χορτασμένος μ' ακουμπά, δίπλα στ' άλλα πιόνια.
Μες στη μαύρη μου στολή, χιλιοφορεμένη,
μια "βεγγαλική" ζωή τρέμει κι υπομένει

Πίσω μου ο βασιλιάς τρίβει την κοιλιά του.
Κρέμεται ο μπουνταλάς στη βασίλισσά του.
Δύο αξιωματικοί δίπλα στ' άλογά τους,
σε δυο πύργους κρύβουνε τη λιγοψυχιά τους.

Μπρος μου έχω το θάνατο, τον αφέντη πίσω,
τον λευκό μου αδερφό πρέπει να νικήσω.
Μες στην άσπρη του στολή, χιλιοφορεμένη,
πιόνι στην παρτίδα αυτή, τρέμει κι υπομένει.

Πίσω του άλλος βασιλιάς τρίβει την κοιλιά του.
Κρέμεται ο μπουνταλάς στη βασίλισσά του.
Δυο λευκοί αξιωματικοί στ' άσπρα τ' άλογά τους,
σε δυο πύργους κρύβουνε τη λιγοψυχιά τους.

Βήμα βήμα αντικριστά, πιόνια γεννημένοι,
για ένα μάτσο μπάσταρδους πάμε για χαμένοι.
Ξένα τα τετράγωνα, μαύρα κι άσπρα ξένα,
για το βιος του βασιλιά πέφτουμε ένα ένα.

Σκέψου να αλλάζαμε τούτους τους κανόνες.
Το χορτάτο βασιλιά βάλτε στους στρατώνες.
Πύργοι κι αξιωματικοί κι η βασίλισσά μας
να 'ναι πρώτοι στη γραμμή για την αφεντιά μας.

Κι όταν οι αφέντες μας πρώτοι φαγωθούνε,
τη στολή θα βγάλουμε και θα ενωθούμε.

Τα μεγάλα τζάκια τους σβήνουν στην ορμή μας,
οι καρποί του μόχθου μας να 'ναι όλοι δικοί μας.
Σ' όλα τα τετράγωνα, σ' όλα, μαύρα κι άσπρα,
των τυράννων θρύψαλα κάνουμε τα κάστρα.
Των αστών θα κάνουμε θρύψαλα τα κάστρα.
