Αθηναική κομπανία - Το μινόρε της αυγής - Athenaiki Kompania - To Minore Tis Avghis

Το μινόρε της Αυγής είναι τηλεοπτική σειρά που έκανε πρεμιέρα στην ΕΡΤ στις 14 Ιανουαρίου 1983 και ολοκληρώθηκε με δεύτερο κύκλο το 1984 με 27 επεισόδια.Ο Αντώνης Ζάγκουρας (Αντώνης Καφετζόπουλος) είναι ένας νεαρός ρεμπέτης, που έρχεται από τη Σύρο στην Αθήνα αναζητώντας την τύχη του.

Γίνεται μέλος μιας ρεμπέτικης κομπανίας κι ακολουθεί συναρπαστική διαδρομή γεμάτη έρωτες, επιτυχίες, αλλά και πολλές απογοητεύσεις, μέχρι που κερδίζει την κοινωνική και καλλιτεχνική καταξίωσή του.
Η σειρά «ΤΟ ΜΙΝΟΡΕ ΤΗΣ ΑΥΓΗΣ» παρουσιάζει ορισμένες πτυχές από τη ζωή των λαϊκών μουσικών που απαρτίζουν μια ρεμπέτικη αθηναϊκή κομπανία, κατά τις δεκαετίες 1930-1960. Μέσω αυτών, αντιλαμβανόμαστε πώς ζούσαν οι ρεμπέτες της εποχής εκείνης, όντας στο περιθώριο των λαϊκών τάξεων.
Στη σειρά ακούγονται δημοφιλή τραγούδια των Βαμβακάρη, Τσιτσάνη, Παπαϊωάννου, Χατζηχρήστου και άλλων, αποτυπώνοντας την ατμόσφαιρα της περιόδου 1930 - 1960. Το σάουντρακ της σειράς έγινε πλατινένιο ξεπερνώντας τις 100.000 πωλήσεις.

Η σειρά προβλήθηκε το 1985 και το 1987 στην Αυστραλία από το Network 0-28/SBS με Αγγλικούς υπότιτλους με τον τίτλο "Piraues blues".

The movie stories the Greek culture from 1930-1960. It tries to illustrate the years when the Rebetico music style was born. It follows the lives of four different people (Antonis, Mitsos, Baggelis, Thanasis) who initially created a group and became known. Throughout the series popular songs of old composers (Vamvakaris, Tsitsanis, Papaioanou, etc.) are heard. The movie describes very well the Piraeus and Athens of 1930.



Ξύπνα, μικρό μου, κι άκουσε
 κάποιο μινόρε της αυγής, 
για σένανε είναι γραμμένο 
από το κλάμα κάποιας ψυχής. 

Το παραθύρι σου άνοιξε 
ρίξε μου μια γλυκιά ματιά 
Κι ας σβήσω πια τότε, μικρό μου, 
μπροστά στο σπίτι σου σε μια γωνιά.

Yes - Fragile (1972)

Yes are an English progressive rock band formed in London in 1968 by singer Jon Anderson, bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Peter Banks, keyboardist Tony Kaye, and drummer Bill Bruford. The band has undergone numerous formations throughout its history; nineteen musicians have been full-time members. Since June 2015, it has consisted of guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Geoff Downes, singer Jon Davison, and bassist Billy Sherwood, with no remaining founding members. Yes have explored several musical styles over the years, and are most notably regarded as progressive rock pioneers.

Yes began in 1968, performing original songs and rearranged covers of rock, pop, blues and jazz songs, as evident on their first two albums. A change of direction in 1970 led to a series of successful progressive rock albums until their disbanding in 1981, their most successful being The Yes Album (1971), Fragile (1971) and Close to the Edge (1972). Yes toured as a major rock act that earned the band a reputation for their elaborate stage sets, light displays, and album covers designed by Roger Dean. The success of "Roundabout", the single from Fragile, cemented their popularity across the decade and beyond.

In 1983, Yes reformed with a new line-up that included Trevor Rabin and a more commercial and pop-oriented musical direction. The result was 90125 (1983), their highest-selling album which contained the U.S. number-one single, "Owner of a Lonely Heart". From 1990 to 1992, Yes were an eight-member formation after they merged with Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe for Union(1991) and its tour. Since 1994, Yes have released albums with varied levels of success and completed tours from 1994 to 2004. After a four-year hiatus, they resumed touring in 2009 and continue to release albums; their most recent is Heaven & Earth(2014). In 2016, a new group of former Yes members began touring and named themselves Yes Featuring Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Rick Wakeman.

Fragile is the fourth studio album by the English progressive rock band Yes, released in November 1971 by Atlantic Records. After touring in support of their previous album, The Yes Album (1971), the band entered rehearsals in London in preparation for their next studio album. Early into the sessions, keyboardist Tony Kaye was fired over his reluctance to utilize more electronic synthesizers. He was quickly replaced with Rick Wakeman of the Strawbs, whose experience with various instruments helped expand the group's sound with the addition of the electric piano and harpsichord, Mellotron, and Minimoog synthesiser. Four tracks are group performances; the remaining five are solo pieces written by each member. The cover is their first illustrated by Roger Dean, who would design many of their future logos, covers and stage sets.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Murder Of The Universe (2017)

The second of five planned albums for 2017, the Australians’ 10th studio album is one wild dystopian ride. It’s a three-chapter trip described by frontman Stu Mackenzie as “a visual, descriptive, bleak record” and aided by coolly detached narration from a cyborg named “Han-Tyumi” (an anagram for “Humanity”). The portentous themes aren’t necessarily matched by the music, however. The septet lay on way too much psychedelic metal fun for the mood to turn too bleak.

Pagan Altar - Lords of Hypocrisy (2004)

Pagan Altar was formed in 1978 by Terry and Alan Jones, who are father and son, respectively. Alongside Witchfinder General, they are one of the few NWOBHM bands to play doom metal.The band's concerts are characterised by moody, epic and heavy music, blended with stage effects which accentuate their interest in occult themes.

Pagan Altar's only release from the NWOBHM era was an independent, self-released, self-titled demo album (which was heavily bootlegged in later years). The album would be re-released as an official full-length on Oracle Records in 1998, retitled "Volume 1".

The group reformed in 2004 to re-record an album of previously unreleased material which had been written during their original tenure as a band. The resulting album, "Lords of Hypocrisy", met with a positive reception from fans, and a third full-length album duly followed in 2006, entitled "Mythical and Magical".

In 2008, Pagan Altar co-headlined the "Metal Brew" Festival in Mill Hill, alongside Cloven Hoof.Both bands also performed at the "British Steel IV" Festival at the Camden Underworld in 2009. Pagan Altar returned to headline the "British Steel V" Festival in April 2011 and the "Live Evil" Festival in October 2011.

In 2012, Pagan Altar began work on their next album "Never Quite Dead", in a purpose-built recording studio in the back garden of vocalist Terry Jones's home. The 2013 lineup included: Dean Alexander on drums, Vince Hempstead on rhythm guitar, and William Gallagher on bass guitar.

On 15 May 2015, vocalist Terry Jones died of cancer. The band had finished recording their upcoming album, which was in its final mastering stage. In 2017, Alan Jones announced that he intends to partially re-record the band's upcoming album as he nor the late Terry Jones were happy with the finished product.

Ήρωες θέλουμε,
γεμάτους μίσος για την άρχουσα τάξη
ήρωες που θα διώξουν τα σκυλιά
και τους μπάτσους της ζωή μας.

Γίνε ήρωας μπορείς!

Μόνος αν δεν μπορείς,
συνεργάσου γινεται πολλοι
αφοσιωμένοι στον ίδιο σκοπό.
Στην εξέργεση των υποδουλομένων
μυαλών και σωμάτων!

Υπάρχουν ήρωες της πρώτης στιγμής
μόνοι προσπαθούν, να αφυπνίσουν,
να δώσουν σπίθα για να ξυπνήσουν χιλιάδες.

Ηρωες που είναι καταδικασμένοι
να δεχτούν ολα τα πυρά
των αρχόντων του συστήματος.

Ήρωες που θα δικαιωθούν μόνο
οταν η θυσία τους δικαιωθεί
Ήρωες που ξέρουν πως μπορεί
να καταλήξουν στο σκοτάδι της λήθης.

Περιμένουν απο μας την συνέχεια
της σπίθας τους να γίνει φωτιά,
να αφυπνήσουμε μάζες.

Να στείλουμε το καπιταλιστικό σύστημα
στα άδυτα της ιστορίας.
Να γίνει μια μελανή σελίδα
στην ιστορία της ανθρωπότητας.

Ήρωες στο πνευματικό επίπεδο
Ήρωες στον τόπο της εργασίας
Ήρωες μέσα στην γειτονιά
Ήρωες στο μέτωπο της επανάστασης

Δεν πρέπει να φοβόμαστε,
μπορούμε να αφυπνιστουμε
να σπάσουμε τα δεσμά μας
πνευματικά,οικονομικά, κοινωνικά

Οσοι δεν ακολουθήσουν
θα τους βρούμε απεναντί μας.
Ή εμείς ή αυτοί...

Wucan - Sow the Wind (2015)

WUCAN are a young heavy retro rock band from Dresden, Germany with deep roots in the late 60s and early seventies with a dash of blues, folk, progressive and Kraut rock. This sort of time-warp music is covering the gamut from the Woodstock generation to the modern rock sound, starting with acoustic guitar, traverse flute and Hammond organ and ending at the modern rock sound of the heavy kind. WUCAN made the right choice of partners with producer and owner of the Big Snuff Studios in Berlin Richard Behrens and with Andreas “Lupo “ Lubich of Calyx Mastering for a successful debut in the retro rock scene. Richard Behrens, who is bassist of the 70s band HEAT and live toning of the genre heroes KADAVAR additionally to his producing duties, created an authentic 70s sound by using analogue machinery. Combined with the modern heavy surround of the band unfolds a fresh mix of yesterday and today, which bursts with lust for music.

Steely Dan - Pretzel Logic - 1974

Steely Dan
is an American rock band founded by core members Walter Becker (guitars, bass, backing vocals) and Donald Fagen(keyboards, lead vocals) in 1972. Blending elements of jazz, traditional pop, R&B, and sophisticated studio production with cryptic and ironic lyrics, the band enjoyed critical and commercial success starting from the early 1970s until breaking up in 1981.[4] Throughout their career, the duo recorded with a revolving cast of session musicians, and in 1974 retired from live performances to become a studio-only band. Rolling Stone has called them "the perfect musical antiheroes for the Seventies".[5]

After the group disbanded in 1981, Becker and Fagen were less active throughout most of the next decade, though a cult following[4]remained devoted to the group. Since reuniting in 1993 Steely Dan has released two albums of new material, the first of which, Two Against Nature, earned a Grammy Award for Album of the Year. They have sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2001.[6][7][8][9] VH1 listed Steely Dan at #82 as one of the 100 greatest musical artists of all time.[10] Becker died on September 3, 2017, leaving Fagen as the only official member.
Pretzel Logic is the third studio album by the American rock band Steely Dan, released on February 20, 1974, by ABC Records. It was written by principal band members Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, and recorded at The Village Recorder in West Los Angeles with producer Gary Katz. It was the final album to feature the full five-member band of Becker, Fagen, Denny Dias, Skunk Baxter, and Jim Hodder, and also featured significant contributions from many prominent Los Angeles-based studio musicians.

The album was a commercial and critical success upon its release. Its hit single "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" helped restore Steely Dan's radio presence after the disappointing performance of their 1973 album Countdown to Ecstasy. Pretzel Logic was reissued on CD in 1987 and remastered in 1999 to retrospective acclaim from critics.
