MC5 50th ANNIVERSARY

MC50_17 72

<Kick Out the Jams… Motherfuckers!> On November 21 at night a sonic revolution was played on stage! People were ready to join Brother Wayne Kramer & Friends (Kim Thayil of Soundgarden; Marcus Durant of Zen Guerrilla; Brendan Canty of Fugazi; and Billy Gould of Faith No More). Militant riffs spawned from Kramer’s and Thayil’s guitars and exploded among the audience; in the background the rhythm section moved forward as a mighty tank on the battlefield; a voice cut the air screaming iconic songs. <Kick Out the Jams… Motherfuckers!> An army of eyes and ears recorded voraciously a piece of future . <Art and creativity will provoke Resistance!>, Brother Wayne said… [All shots taken with FujiFilm X30 during November 21 MC5‘s live performance at Alcatraz, Milan.

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!!!
