<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.

An amazing night with the music of UK band Soft Machine. Armed with two cameras – Fuji X100 and Olympus OM-D E-M5 (+ Zuiko 17 mm f2.8 + Zuiko 30 mm f3.5 Macro) – I’ve recorded the mid afternoon soundcheck and the live show at La casa di Alex, in Milan. Guitarist John Etheridge joined the opening act, Paolo Ricca Group, before coming back on stage as headliner, with his historical fellows John Marshall, Roy Babbington and Theo Travis.
Free to move around the stage, I took b&w pics very close to the musicians, trying as usual to recreate an early Seventies magic rock atmosphere. ENJOY!
P.S. special thanks to friend composer and musician Paolo Ricca and to Nick Utteridge, Soft Machine’s tour manager.
