NORTH MISSISSIPPI ALLSTARS: WHEN BUDDY GUY’S BLUES MEETS GRATEFUL DEAD

NMA_35 72

What happens when Buddy Guy meets the Grateful Dead? The question may need to be corrected. Need to ask when does Buddy Guy’s blues meet the Grateful Dead’s psychedelic jam? The magic happened in Milan during the North Mississippi Allstars concert at Spazio Teatro 89. The band led by the Dickinson brothers – in the power trio version – performed a 2 hours and 15 minutes live show rejecting any “music label.” North Mississippi Allstars’ philosophy? Jamming, jamming and jamming. Following the mood of the evening, I started a photographic session interrupting myself often, to try to get even more in tune with the band’s vibes. Shot by shot I explored with my FujiFilm X30 the visual nuances of blues and rock. There is nothing better than frames supported by music, you know! Jamming, jamming and (photo) jamming!

STRAIGHT OUTTA ROME’S SUBURB

La fabbrica dell'assoluto_01 72

Straight outta Rome’s suburb Tuscolano, La Fabbrica dell’assoluto brings to the public’s attention again the sound/voice of George Orwell’s 1984 dystopian reality.

They are as mighty and powerful as the hardest and most organized rock armada and they have a clever intelligence that leads them to look at the past with respect but never with reverence.

La fabbrica dell’assoluto manages a Seventies progressive band’s typical idea of a “concept album” with the critical vision of the contemporary world: the band’s main cultural goal is to celebrate again the marriage between music and civil society.

And if that were not enough, all this is done by the voice of a frontman able to combine the vocal range of Italian singer and actor Massimo Ranieri and the raw rock consciousness of Roger Daltrey of THE WHO.

If you were looking for real news in the rock music scene, stop and listen to La fabbrica dell’assoluto!

P.S. Hoping La fabbrica dell’assoluto‘s next album will be produced by Trent Reznor!!!
