I liked Delaney Davidson. He is possibly one the best live performers I’ve seen in many a day. I also liked the venue. Under the pretext of translator, if needed, for a Kiwi performer with a possible whiff of Scottish … Continue reading
On May 20, 2013, Ray Manzarek, from the Doors, died from bile duct cancer at a hospital in Rosenheim, Germany, aged 74. Robby Krieger said, “I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of my friend and bandmate Ray Manzarek today. I’m just glad to have been able to have played Doors songs with him for the last decade. Ray was a huge part of my life and I will always miss him.” John Densmore said, “There was no keyboard player on the planet more appropriate to support Jim Morrison’s words. Ray, I felt totally in sync with you musically. It was like we were of one mind, holding down the foundation for Robby and Jim to float on top of. I will miss my musical brother.”
For the first time in Munich, Delaney will be teaming up with long time partner in crime Pierre Omer from Dead Brothers on guitar and accordion, Ben Woolley from New Zealand on bass and Davide Zolli from the mighty Mojomatics on drums. Yes, that’s right – you can call this a “supergroup!”
The city is known as the second largest publishing center in the world (around 250 publishing houses have offices in the city), and many national and international publications are published in Munich, such as Arts in Munich, LAXMag and Prinz.
Prominent literary figures worked in Munich especially during the final centuries of the Kingdom of Bavaria such as Paul Heyse, Max Halbe, Rainer Maria Rilke and Frank Wedekind. The period immediately before World War I saw economic and cultural prominence for the city. Munich, and especially its suburb of Schwabing, became the domicile of many artists and writers. Thomas Mann, who also lived there, wrote ironically in his novella Gladius Dei about this period, “Munich shone”. It remained a centre of cultural life during the Weimar period with figures such as Lion Feuchtwanger, Bertolt Brecht and Oskar Maria Graf.
Large parts of the central city were destroyed in World War II by Allied bombing in 1942 and 1944. After the war through reconstruction and subsequent extension, the city became a major industrial centre of the German Democratic Republic (GDR) with the port being developed as the state’s primary gate to the world. Much of the historic centre has been faithfully rebuilt and much of its historic character restored. This includes several buildings characterised by vertical brick ribs, a style common to the Hanseatic towns.
A powerful four piece
A powerful four piece that swings somewhere between The Kinks, Lou Reed and the R’n’B of early Stones, mixing in Country Twang and a compelling drive from the amazing rhythm section. Melody and harmony tangled up with Omers darker sense, Davidsons twisted style with a solid push. Rhythm vs Melody.
The new album “Swim Down Low” is out on
