JACCO GARDNER: Deutschlandtour und Ticket-Verlosung

<p>Der Singer/Songwriter Jacco Gardner hat im Februar 2013 sein Debütalbum „Cabinet of Curiosities“ veröffentlicht und damit einen Begeisterungssturm entfacht. Der neo-psychdelisch-barock-poppige Multiinstrumentalist und seine grandios verschnörkelte Musik voller Mollakkorde und üppiger Melodien wird getragen von Streichern, Mellotron, Cembalo und Akkordeon – neben vielen anderen Instrumenten, versteht sich. Und natürlich dem wunderbaren Harmoniegesang. Gerade ist das neue Album des Holländers “Hypophobia” erschienen.

THE DOORS steadily opened for this psychedelic band that began in 1965 Los Angeles which took its name from the Aldous Huxley's book "THE DOORS of Perception" taken from a William Blake quote. One of the more interesting and unique bands of the 60s, THE DOORS pretty much caught the world by storm beginning with their eponymous album number 1 and pretty much continued to do so until Jim Morrison's early passing at the age of 27 in 1971.

This album was recorded in 1966 and released right in the year of the Flower Child 1967 and didn't initially shoot up...

It's a long weekend here in London - and wouldn't you know it? It's been miserable weather. I can't complain too much - Im happy to be cooking, watching Teen Wolf and reading (currently rereading Chuck Palahniuk's Survivor and last month's Sight & Sound while eating Minstrels). So there isn't much excuse but to do a Hits From The Box...

I want to kick off with a band that isn't actually new to this website, or even a release that is that new. Coming from Belgrade is the shoegaze rock of Vvhile, a two-piece that...

Notice the autograph-- Lester hated the Cramps.

I first met Lester Bangs via the telephone. I was a bored teenager. Growing up in South Florida in the early 70's, there weren't many people who liked the Stooges and the Velvet Underground. I read Creem and Rock Scene and zines like Who Put The Bomp, Back Door Man, Denim Delinquent, The Rock Marketplace, Gulcher, Punk (the original Punk from Buffalo which predated the New York mag by two years). I used to call the Creem offices in Michigan around midnight every couple of weeks. Lester was always there, usually speeding...

(lead vocals) and Greg Likins (lead guitar). Since their days in The Yankee Dollar Liza and Greg have married.

How long did you stay with The Avengers? Did you play on any of the 45s they recorded. If so which ones?
