This album, that I have stayed given from Cristina and Alvaro of Leon, it is the first work of Alex Diez Garin from soloists, in art Alex Cooper. The graphics of the album that is much good, preannounces the type of sound that you will go already to listen to: it is all 60's pop or powerpop of psychedelic influence. I must tell that apart from any passages not one far of much from the classical sound of Los Angeles Flechazos, it surely has recommended to all the lovers of the sound indie pop English and of the white sound in general. The piece clou is surely the it second of the in general B, Rascacielos where the sound of the old Flechazos mixes with this pop psychedelic really good, sin that is not, but if you want it; you could go on the site of the Elefant Records that is:www.elefant.com
This is the third job, of the trio of Englishtown (U.S.A.) to distance of well 4 years from their second operate, the graphics pop-art is much accattivante and the sound one is a little bit cleaner transform, from garage 60's in psichedelic corn, the boys are much matured from the last disk and play 12 pieces really much "English." .consigliatissimo to all because in a period of thin like this finally a mod band 100%, the cd is under Estrus records, you visit their site to: www.estrus.com
The 222 pages of the novel of Colin McInnes are perhaps the best the papery sublimation of the phenomenon called "mod". The book narrates the circumstances of Colin, young photographer (freelance), to the taking with the changes of the British society at the end of the years fifty, when the culture of the "teenager" it revealed what in succession the "a-b-c" of the beloved "way of life" of modernist. The 16 years protagonist describes the smoky jazz club between Soho and Notting hill, the partys frequented from the entertainment characters and of the advertising world, the first fixed, typically mod, for the clothes, accessories and vinyls of importation. The usual stuff in short. Absolutely no. They in the plot weave all the elements that would have sprung the phenomenon of the Swinging London in the sixties without skip the origins of her it lavish respect for the culture black agreement it is like musical influence, that like political choice and like tribute to the indisputable charme of the boys of color of the epoch. In more the inevitable sentimental history with the splendid Suzette that however she prefers the company of a magnate of the other bank, for reach the own ambitions to creative background. The important characteristic, to my modest seem, it is that of describe a "movement," one "style" without give it a name. Colin is a mod at 101% and as he quite a lot kids, but nobody and nothing worry of baptize and institutionalize the music, the environments the aesthetical pulls in an only term. Everything was really fast, new, from create. A good person hovers. Coast thirteen Euro, I has stolen it.
