The Trip - Atlantide (Italy Progressive Rock 1972)


The Trip were a British-Italian progressive rock band of the early 1970s. While their career was less successful than those of Italian progressive rock prominent bands such as Premiata Forneria Marconi or Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, they were very popular for a few years, and were very appreciated by the critics, especially because of their talented leader, keyboard player Joe Vescovi, who is often referred to as the Italian counterpart of Keith Emerson.[1] The band is also notable as British guitarist Ritchie Blackmore was in The Trip's personnel before joining Deep Purple.

Tangerine Dream - Stratosfear (1976)




Stratosfear is the eighth album by the German group Tangerine Dream.[2] It marks the beginning of the band's development away from their uncompromising early 1970s synthesizer experiments toward a recognizably more melodic sound, a trend they would pick up again in 1979's Force Majeure. The title track "Stratosfear" has been played live many times and has been released in a re-mixed form on a number of other albums.

Stratosfear combines Tangerine Dream's acoustic and electronic influences more tightly than before. For instance, at the end of the last track, "Invisible Limits", the deep piano/flute tune reveals the album's romantic flavour even after the earlier predominantly synthetic compositions (tracks #1 to last part of track #4).

The LP reached No.39 in the UK, in a 4-week chart run, and eventually reached silver status for selling in excess of 60,000 copies (£100,000+).

Nick Mason of Pink Floyd did the original mix of Stratosfear in April 1976 at Hansa by the Wall. Due to disputes between Tangerine Dream and Virgin, this mix was abandoned.


Οι Τάντζεριν Ντριμ (αγγλ. Tangerine Dream) είναι γερμανικό συγκρότημα ηλεκτρονικής μουσικής που ιδρύθηκε το 1967 από τον Έντγκαρ Φρέζε. Το γκρουπ έχει αλλάξει πολλές φορές σύνθεση κατά τη διάρκεια της ύπαρξης του, με τον Φρέζε να παραμένει το μοναδικό σταθερό μέλος του. Ο ντράμερ και συνθέτης Klaus Schulze ήταν ένα από τα μέλη της αρχικής σύνθεσης. Η σύνθεση τους ήταν ιδιαίτερα σταθερή κατά τη διάρκεια της πιο σημαντικής περιόδου του συγκροτήματος, στα μέσα της δεκαετίας του 1970, ήταν ένα τρίο από μουσικούς keyboard, με τους Froese, Christopher Franke, και Peter Baumann. Εξίσου σταθερή και παραγωγική υπήρξε και η επόμενη σύνθεση τους, όταν στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του 1980, ο Johannes Schmoelling αντικατέστησε τον Baumann.

Τα άλμπουμ τους κατά τη διάρκεια της "Ροζ Περιόδου" τους (στην αρχή της καριέρας τους), έπαιξαν πολύ σημαντικό ρόλο στην εξέλιξη του μουσικού ρεύματος Κράουτροκ. Η "Περίοδος στη Virgin" και τα επόμενα άλμπουμ τους είχαν μεγάλη επιρροή στην εξέλιξη της New Age μουσικής, αν και τα μέλη του συγκροτήματος αντιπαθούν το συγκεκριμένο όρο.

Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει πολλά άλμπουμ ηχογραφημένα στο στούντιο ή από ζωντανές παραστάσεις, αλλά η γνωριμία των περισσότερων από τους θαυμαστές τους με το συγκρότημα έγινε με ένα από τα περισσότερα από σαράντα soundtrack που έχουν δημιουργήσει, από ταινίες όπως: Sorcerer, Thief, The Keep, Risky Business, Firestarter, Legend, Near Dark, και Miracle Mile.

Certain General- November's heat (1980)




Certain General is an American post-punk band formed in 1980 by Parker Dulany, Phil Gammage, Marcy Saddy, and Russell Berke. BOMP! Records has called them "NYC's 80's cult favorite,[1] while Rock & Folk identified the band as "the bridge between Televisionand Radiohead.[2]

In the liner notes for Introduction to War (2001), their former manager, Stephen Graziano, called them, "...the baddest, craziest, most misbehaved but mind bendingly brilliant band that was walking the Earth." This coincides with Mojo magazine's assessment that "the story of Certain General is one of triumph, tragedy, and often dazzling music."'[3]

Drawing on a tradition established by New York rock bands such as the Velvet Underground, Certain General has recorded and performed extensively in the United States and Europe. Although various personnel and label changes have occurred over the years, Dulany and Gammage, along with Kevin Tooley, continue to record and perform.

With one foot firmly planted in the post-punk sound of the late seventies and the other in the emerging new wave, at the outset, Certain General's quirky, kinetic, rhythm and sound owed more to the "dead disco and happening hip-hop,"[4] as parleyed by such emerging New York entities as James Chance and the Contortions than the moody, psychedelia-gone-mad direction that would follow. However, from the start, their unique mix of evocative lyrics and a consistently frenetic live show quickly earned the band widespread acclaim when they began to play shows in 1981. As Boston Rock noted at the time, they were "superbly energetic, the last time the band played here the crowd almost tore the walls down."[5] New York rock critic heavyweight Christgau from the Village Voice weighed in that the band produced "rolling, ambitious, somewhat mannered art pop that is totally original."[6] And his colleague, Van Gosse, maintained that "this band so fervent and young has come to stand for something.[7] That notoriety would eventually extend to Europe, where they would release November's Heat in 1984. Considered a seminal album of the 1980s and one of the defining New York rock records, November's Heat would earn the band many accolades, especially in France. In 1995, Rock & Folk called it "one of the most important albums made between 1965 and 1995."

The Mystick Krewe of Clearlight (2000)



The Mystick Krewe of Clearlight came together in 1996 as an instrumental side project led by guitarist Jimmy Bower and drummer Joe Lacaze of the New Orleans sludge metal group Eyehategod, along with members of Big Easy sludge metal units Crowbar and Down. Bower and Lacaze's inspiration from the start was to get away from the pummeling nihilistic dirge metal of Eyehategod and use their new project as an outlet for the improvisational music that they had absorbed growing up in New Orleans, whether it be jazz, soul, funk, or rock. The group's influences range from the Southern blues-rock of the Allman Brothers, native soul and funk legends the Meters, the Neville Brothers, and Dr. John, and, on the heavier side of things, the groove-heavy riffs of classic Deep Purple. The idea of no barriers frees up these metal heads by trade and has given them the chance to show off their musicians' chops and indulge themselves in lengthy guitar solos and extended jams that have more in common with the festive spirit of Mardi Gras than a headbanging doom rock concert.
