[FEATURES 音樂專題] New Found Glory – 朋克·刺青·人生·愛情 // Punk, Tattoo, Life, Love

★ 專題全文 Full Article

朋克、刺青、人生、愛情 — 教人怎麼能不喜歡 New Found Glory?

“…… NGF 在02年夏天發行 Sticks and Stones 專輯,隨即以現在已成為流行朋克經典的 Head on Collision 和 My Friends Over You 等歌曲在 Vans Warped Tour 中贏得不少注意。其後在2004年推出Catalyst 專輯,更憑 All Down Hill From Here 奠定他們在朋克界的地位…… 許多音樂評論家亦把他們與 Blink-182Green Day 看齊為塑造90年代末流行朋克運動的聲音……”

Punk, Tattoo, Life, Love – How can you not like New Found Glory?

“… NGF released their groundbreaking album “Sticks and Stones”, stormed the Vans Warped Tour with the now pop-punk-classics “Head on Collision” and “My Friends Over You” in 2002. They continued their success with 2004’s release, “Catalyst” featuring their anthem”All Down Hill From Here”.” Lots of music critics see them as the voices shaping the late 90’s pop punk movement…”

[Live Review 現場回顧] OK Go – Live in Hong Kong

★ 回顧全文 Full Article

著實太多令人目不暇給的元素希望跟大家分享,因此文章遲了一星期才刊登,非常抱歉喔……

「在不少演唱會,樂隊主唱會叫樂迷與他一同全埸大合唱,但OK Go會要求你做出如噴嚏的「si」或「哇」等有趣聲音,用智能電話作錄音,然後簡單地混合錄製,即時把完成作品播放出來作清唱的基底節奏,為「大合唱」作個新定義…… 

…… 很多音樂會在演出末段也會應用到彩紙,可是只有 OK Go 會在整個演唱會多次發出彩紙炮。每隔三、四首歌曲便會有數以百萬計的彩虹碎紙如蝴蝶般飛舞出來。來不及以手機把精彩一幕抓住? 樂團會再給你一次機會!當晚演出過後,只要在社交媒體搜尋「OKGo」,整個畫面會頓時被紙條滿天紛飛的照片佔據。 演出過後,樂迷亦瞬間把場館變成「after party」,和地上厚厚的紙屑玩樂一番。」

Too many stunning moments to share in an OK Go concert! A detail flashback of OK Go’s concert two weeks ago.

“At an OK Go concert, you are going to have everything you want.

On July 24, a rainy summer night, OK Go comes back for their second concert in Hong Kong as musician, dancer, performer, artist, stand-up comedian and media-art curator. Even the band is famous for their low-budget and creative videos, they don’t fail any of us in live shows, where whereas with no prerecorded videos or take two.”

[GIG REMINDER] The Used – Live in Hong Kong

Overseas Features 海外特集 > bit.ly/19LgsNm

The Used 終於在明天來臨香港!未知會否帶來懷舊電視機道具呢?

樂團由主唱 Bert McCracken、結他手 Quinn Allman、貝斯手 Jeph Howard 和鼓手 Dan Whitesides 於2001年在美國猶他州組成。樂隊於2002年發行的首張同名專輯獲金唱片佳績,迅速成為後硬核領頭人物,當中的難忘單曲包括 Box Full of Sharp Objects、The Taste of Ink、Blue And Yellow 和 Buried Myself Alive 等。樂隊隨後於2003年發布了 CD/ DVD 合輯 Maybe Memories 及2004年的 In Love And Death,相信你必定聴:聽過裡面的作品 Take It Away、I Caught Fire 和 All That I’ve Got。

TOMORROW! The Used will perform in Hong Kong for the first time! Hope they will bring along the retro TV props with them.

The band includes singer Bert McCracken, guitarist Quinn Allman, bassist Jeph Howard and drummer Dan Whitesides formed in Orem, Utah in 2001. Their gold-certified Self-Titled debut in 2002, quickly cementing the Used as leaders among the post-hardcore elite, thanks in part to unforgettable singles like “Box Full of Sharp Objects,” “The Taste of Ink,” “Blue And Yellow”and “Buried Myself Alive.” The band then released the CD/DVD combo “Maybe Memories” in 2003, followed by 2004’s “In Love And Death” with singles “Take It Away,” “I Caught Fire” and “All That I’ve Got”.

[NEWS] 1000 People Jamming Foo Fighters‘s “Learn To Fly”, Dave GrohlResponds

一千名音樂人在意大利一起演奏 Foo Fighters 的名曲 Learn to Fly,期望可以說服樂團到他們的市鎮表演。片段立即引起全球廣泛報道,靈魂人物 Dave Grohl 更於兩天後拍攝短片,以意大利文表示感謝並說:「我發誓,我們便會到來,希望在不久將來會再與你們相見!」再一次證明Dave是現今搖滾街最友好的樂手喔!未知香港會否發起同類型活動,邀請樂隊越洋演出呢?

1000 musicians play Learn to Fly by Foo Fighters to ask Dave Grohl to come and play in Cesena, Italy. Two days later, Grohl posted a video to respond in Italian, expressing that he could only speak “just a bit, a bit” of Italian and said “We’re coming, I swear,” Grohl said. “We’ll see each other soon.” It once again proves why Dave is the nicest guy in rock n’ roll.

 [NEWS] Mayhem Festival R.I.P.

當演唱會主辦真的很困難!曾經備受追捧的美國重型音樂節 Mayhem Festival 要永遠結束了。主辦人 John L. Reese 在其 Facebook 頁面上稱「最後一年的Mayhem,很榮幸與 King Diamond 分享」。其實早在年初已傳出門票滯銷,亦有樂迷不滿這個重型金屬音樂節加入太多金屬核樂團,再加上另一個主辦人 Kevin Lyman 早前發表「金屬愛好者都是禿頭和肥胖的」,引來壓軸嘉賓、 Slayer 的Kerry King憤怒,更引起罵戰。再見了Mayhem Festival 。

It’s difficult to be live events organizers. It seems like the annual Mayhem Festival is coming to an end. With low attendance for 2015′s tour, co-founder John L. Reese called this the last Mayhem ever in a new Facebook post. Sadly, the 2015 Mayhem Festival may be remembered more for its controversy than the music itself. After festival co-founder Kevin Lyman’s claim that “metal got gray, bald and fat” along with a constant slew of insults flung the fest’s direction by Slayer guitarist Kerry King, this year’s Mayhem Fest is full of controversy. Bye Mayhem.

Bruce Dickinson 生日快樂! 沒有 Bruce 就沒有 Iron Maiden!你知道Bruce被學校開除?當年年少氣盛的他在寄宿學校讀書,但竟然於校長的晚飯中小解!最終被開除…看來他自小便注定與反叛和搖滾結下一生不解緣喔。

[FLASHBACK] Cradle of Filth – Nymphetamine Fix

“Nymphetamine, sick and weak from my condition
This lust, a vampyric addiction”

Cradle of Filth 歌曲 Nymphetamine 是 「nymphette 性感少女」和「amphetamine安非他命」的合成詞,用來比喻像毒癮沉迷於充滿疑惑的女人。 樂團在1991年於英國Suffolk組,其極端金屬樂風格包含黑金屬、死亡金屬和哥特金屬等;歌詞內容經常圍繞哥特式文學和恐怖電影故事。

Cradle of Filth’s song “Nymphetamine” is a portmanteau word of “nymphette” and “amphetamine” as a reference to a drug-like addiction to the woman in question. Extreme metal band Cradle of Filth are formed in Suffolk in 1991. The band’s musical style evolved from black metal to death metal and gothic metal. They frequently borrow ideas from gothic literature and horror films.
