Morrissey Ringleader of the Tormentors

Ringleader of the Tormentors Wikipedia
Ringleader of the Tormentors is Morrissey's eighth solo album, which debuted at number one in the UK album charts and number twenty-seven in the US. It also hit no. 1 in Sweden, Malta and Greece. Billboard magazine described the album as showcasing "a thicker, more rock-driven sound"; Morrissey attributes this change in sound to new guitarist Jesse Tobias. The album was released on 3 April 2006 in most of the world and on 4 April 2006 in North America. The album was released on the Attack Records label.

Producer Tony Visconti, of T. Rex and David Bowie fame, took over the production role and Morrissey announced that Ringleader of the Tormentors is to be "the most beautiful―perhaps the most gentle, so far." Visconti wrote on his website on 1 November 2005:
“ We have been working on the music and each day it just sounds better and better. I find every musician in the band a joy to work with. Morrissey's vocals are passionate and confident. Right now I'm at the mixing stage and most of the musicians have gone home. I am two thirds of the way through one of the best albums I've ever worked on, with not only Morrissey at his best, but the plot has twists and turns which somehow involve film composer Ennio Morricone and an Italian children's choir. That should whet your appetite, you Moz fans, you!"

Morrissey Q&A Page here
The picture of you holding the violin on the cover of Ringleader Of The Tormentors is brilliant! What was the inspiration for it?

There is an American film from 1946 called "Humoresque" in which Oscar Levant holds up a copy of a magazine with John Garfield on the front playing the violin, as he does throughout the film. I thought the Garfield picture was so touching, so I tried to copy it. Interestingly, my right hand is cupped on the European version, but is straight on the US version.

Humoresque Wikipedia
Humoresque is a 1946 Warner Bros. feature film starring Joan Crawford and John Garfield in an older woman/younger man tale about a violinist and his patroness. The screenplay by Clifford Odets and Zachary Gold was based upon a novel by Fannie Hurst. Humoresque was directed by Jean Negulesco and produced by Jerry Wald.

Southpaw Grammar
Morrissey - Southpaw Grammar
One of boxing's most famous left-handers, Kenny Lane was featured on the cover of British singer Morrissey's August 1995 release, Southpaw Grammer. The image comes from the April 1963 issue of The Ring magazine.

Southpaw Grammar Wikipedia
Southpaw Grammar is the fifth solo album by the British alternative rock singer Morrissey. It was released in August 1995 and charted at number 66 in the United States and at number 4 in the United Kingdom. The singles lifted from it were "Dagenham Dave" (which reached number 26 in the UK Singles Chart in August 1995) and "The Boy Racer" (which reached number 36 in the UK Singles Chart in October 1995).

According to Morrissey himself, the title refers to 'the school of hard knocks', that is, boxing (a southpaw being boxing slang for a left-hander and grammar a reference to grammar schools). Some have taken this a step further and believe Southpaw Grammar to be a concept album about boxing, or just the violence prevalent in modern society in general.
Another reference to boxing is the original cover photo, not of Morrissey, but a photo of boxer Kenny Lane taken from the April 1963 issue of boxing magazine The Ring.

Kenny Lane Wikipedia
82 Wins (19 knockouts), 16 Losses, 2 Draws
Professional boxing career
Lane was known for having a very unorthodox way of fighting. This combined with the fact that he was a southpaw made him an excellent boxer and in 1953 started his professional career.
Quote from Ortiz. "No one was more difficult to figure out than Kenny Lane, the guy was unbelievably clever"

Boxers
Losing in front of your home crowd
You wish the ground
Would open up and take you down
And will time never pass ?
Will time never pass for us ?

Your weary wife is walking away
Your nephew is true
Well, he thinks the world of you
And I have to close my eyes
Oh ...


Losing in front of your home town
The crowd call your name
They love you all the same
The sound, the smell, and the spray
You will take them all away
And they'll stay
Till the grave


Your weary wife is walking away
Your nephew, is true
Well, he thinks the world of you
And I have to close my eyes
Oh ...


Losing in your home town
Hell is the bell
That will not ring again
You will return one day
Because of all the things that you see
When your eyes close


Your weary wife - walking away
Your nephew, it's true
He still thinks the world of you
And I have to dry my eyes
Oh ...

B: It’s the all-request flashback weekend. Morrissey has taken over the radio station, and here’s his request for Siouxsie.
M: Yes, another great single, a hit in England, certainly not here, I don’t think. But they were one of the great groups of the late 70s, early 80s and very underrated, I think. Siouxsie and the Banshees were excellent.

Morrissey - My Love Life
アップロード者 EMI_Music. - 最新の注目音楽動画をみる。

My Love Life Wikipedia
"My Love Life" was a single by Morrissey released in September 1991. It was a stand alone single rather than taken from any album.
Rather than continuing with the rockabilly sound of "Pregnant for the Last Time", Morrissey and song writing partner Mark Nevin returned to a poppier sound for the final single they would release together. Featuring Chrissie Hynde on harmony vocals, the single reached number 29 in the UK singles chart.
This was the last Morrissey release before he joined up with Alain Whyte and Boz Boorer on a full time basis.

Chrissie Hynde Wikipedia
Christine Ellen "Chrissie" Hynde (born 7 September 1951, Akron, Ohio) is an American rock musician, best known as the leader of the rock/new wave band The Pretenders. She is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist, and has been the only constant member of the band throughout its history. As the rare, successful female bandleader and style-setter in the early days of 1970s punk and new wave, Hynde had a major impact on the music scene.


Hynde recorded a cover of Morrissey's "Everyday is Like Sunday"


In 2009 Hynde collaborated with Morrissey to provide backing vocals to the B-side 'Shame Is The Name'.

Now My Heart is Full

Wikipedia Now My Heart Is Full
"Now My Heart Is Full" is a song by British artist Morrissey from his fourth solo album Vauxhall and I. The song references Graham Greene's novel Brighton Rock, with the refrain of "Dallow, Spicer, Pinkie, Cubitt" (the members of a criminal gang in the book) and possibly also John Osborne's play Look Back in Anger, with the title allegedly coming from the line in the play "My heart is so full I feel ill."

Graham Greene Wikipedia
Henry Graham Greene, OM, CH (2 October 1904 – 3 April 1991) was an English author, playwright and literary critic. His works explore the ambivalent moral and political issues of the modern world. Greene was notable for his ability to combine serious literary acclaim with widespread popularity.
Although Greene objected strongly to being described as a Roman Catholic novelist rather than as a novelist who happened to be Catholic, Catholic religious themes are at the root of much of his writing, especially the four major Catholic novels: Brighton Rock, The Power and the Glory, The Heart of the Matter and The End of the Affair.[1] Several works such as The Confidential Agent, The Third Man, The Quiet American, Our Man in Havana and The Human Factor also show an avid interest in the workings of international politics and espionage.
Greene suffered from bipolar disorder, which had a profound effect on his writing and personal life. In a letter to his wife Vivien he told her that he had "a character profoundly antagonistic to ordinary domestic life", and that "unfortunately, the disease is also one's material".

Writing style and themes
The literary style of Graham Greene was described by Evelyn Waugh in Commonweal as "not a specifically literary style at all. The words are functional, devoid of sensuous attraction, of ancestry, and of independent life". Commenting on this lean, realistic prose and its readability, Richard Jones wrote in the Virginia Quarterly Review that "nothing deflects Greene from the main business of holding the reader's attention." His cinematic visual sense led to most of his novels being made into films, such as Brighton Rock in 1947, The End of the Affair in 1955 and 1999, and The Quiet American in 1958 and 2002. He also wrote several original screenplays. In 1949, after writing the novella as "raw material", he wrote the screenplay for the classic film noir, The Third Man, featuring Orson Welles. In 1983 Greene's novel, The Honorary Consul, published ten years earlier, was made into a famous Hollywood movie, entitled Beyond the Limit in the U.S., featuring Michael Caine and Richard Gere. Michael Korda, the famous author and Hollywood script-writer, contributed the foreword and introduction to this novel in a commemorative edition. Greene concentrated on portraying the characters' internal lives – their mental, emotional, and spiritual depths. His stories often occurred in poor, hot, and dusty tropical backwaters, such as Mexico, West Africa, Vietnam, Cuba, Haiti, and Argentina, which led to the coining of the expression "Greeneland" to describe such settings.

John Osborne Wikipedia
John James Osborne (12 December 1929 – 24 December 1994) was an English playwright, screenwriter, actor and critic of the Establishment. The success of his 1956 play Look Back in Anger transformed English theatre. In a productive life of more than 40 years, Osborne explored many themes and genres, writing for stage, film and TV. His personal life was extravagant and iconoclastic. He was notorious for the ornate violence of his language, not only on behalf of the political causes he supported but also against his own family, including his wives and children.
Osborne was one of the first writers to address Britain's purpose in the post-imperial age. He was the first to question the point of the monarchy on a prominent public stage. During his peak (1956–1966), he helped make contempt an acceptable and now even cliched onstage emotion, argued for the cleansing wisdom of bad behaviour and bad taste, and combined unsparing truthfulness with devastating wit.

Now My Heart Is Full
There's gonna be some trouble
A whole house will need re-building
And everyone I love in the house
Will recline on an analyst's couch quite
Soon
Your Father cracks a joke
And in the usual way
Empties the room

Tell all of my friends
I don't have too many
Just some rain-coated lovers'
puny brothers

Dallow, Spicer, Pinkie, Cubitt
Rush to danger, wind up nowhere
Patric Doonan - raised to wait
I'm tired again, I've tried again, and

Now my heart is full
Now my heart is full
And I just can't explain
So I won't even try to

Dallow, Spicer, Pinkie, Cubitt
Every jammy Stressford poet
Loafing oafs in all-night chemists
Loafing oafs in all-night chemists
Underact - express depression
Ah, but Bunnie I loved you
I was tired again
I've tried again, and

Now my heart is full
Now my heart is full
And I just can't explain
So I won't even try to

Did you pass by?
Did you pass by?
Did you pass by?
Did you pass by?
Pass by...

Now my heart is full
Now my heart is full
And I just can't explain
So ...
So...
So...
So...

Silje+Nes++by+Eirik+Lande.jpg

FatCat Records Page here
FatCat Records first became aware of Norwegian multi-instrumentalist / singer / songwriter Silje Nes through a unique and charming demo she sent us in early 2006. Silje grew up in the tiny town of Leikanger, in Sognefjord, the largest fjord in Norway. In 2000, she moved to the rainy town of Bergen, and for the past few years has been living in Berlin. Silje has previously played in an indie pop band, and other highlights from a diverse musical background include playing timpani in an orchestra and bass drum in a marching band.

Starting making her own music around 2001, Silje began by recording on 4-track demo software through a tiny inbuilt microphone on her laptop. Though she’d previously studied classical piano, when she started recording, she did so with guitars and instruments she had no previous experience of playing. In this she was simply guided by the sounds she loved, and the excitement of discovering new instruments and sounds without learned conventions. Starting out by working purely instrumentally, she made use of whatever equipment she could get hold of - guitars and an old synth, a cello, a drum kit, a laptop, as well as loop pedals to build layers of her own playing. Little by little she also found ways of including her own voice in the mix, both as texture and song, and her music has organically evolved from there.

Her first album for FatCat, the quirky, adventurous ‘Ames Room’, was released in January 2008 to widespread critical acclaim, being described by Mojo as “enchanting… one to lose yourself in time and time again”. Whilst creating a sound-world entirely her own, the record shows a similar single-mindedness and (autodidactic) adventurousness to fellow peers like Tujiko Noriko, Islaja, Lau Nau, Eglantine Gouzy, Foehn, or Leila Arab, also sharing something of the homespun, sprawling beauty of the likes of The Pastels, Pram, or Crescent. Beautifully pieced together, tracks unfurl like a series of intricate constructions, or like some kind of strange blown-up world of insects or curious creatures - the whole teeming with life and a great sense of fun.

A 4-track digital-only EP, ‘Yellow’, followed in March 2008, featuring three exclusive, previously unreleased tracks. Silje subsequently embarked on tours of the UK / Europe / USA, but since then has remained relatively quiet, spending her time in her new home in Berlin, constructing the follow-up album, ‘Opticks’, which is set for release in September 2010, and will be preceded by a single, ‘Crystals’ in June, and followed by a second digital single, ‘Branches’ in October.

Opticks

Nearly a year and a half in the making, ‘Opticks’ is a gently enchanting new record that – whilst again home-recorded - dramatically upgrades Silje’s sound and sees her making considerable advances on her debut, ‘Ames Room’, which was released in January 2008 to widespread critical acclaim. Intricately constructed, warm and brimming with melodic hooks, ‘Opticks’ is a record full of wonder and unfurls a series of increasingly accessible and catchy little songs.
Norwegian multi-instrumentalist / singer / songwriter Silje Nes grew up in the tiny town of Leikanger, in Sognefjord, Norway’s largest fjord, before moving to Bergen in 2000. Having previously been in an indie pop band, played timpani in an orchestra and bass drum in a marching band, Silje began making her own music in 2001, recording on 4-track demo software through a tiny inbuilt microphone on a laptop. Guided by the excitement of discovering interesting new sounds and instruments, she made use of whatever equipment she could get hold of – guitars, an old synth, a cello, a drum kit, a laptop, as well as loop pedals to build layers of her own playing. Little by little she also found ways of including her own voice, both as texture and song, and her music has organically evolved from there.
First coming to FatCat’s attention via a unique, utterly charming demo received out of the blue in 2005, her quirky, adventurous debut album, 'Ames Room', opened out like a series of intricate constructions, the whole teeming with a playful sense of life. Followed shortly by a 4-track EP, ‘Yellow’, Silje subsequently embarked on tours of the UK / Europe / USA, but since then has remained quiet, spending her time in her new home in Berlin, constructing this beautiful follow-up.
Whilst once again mostly home-recorded, ‘Opticks’ (the title references Isaac Newton’s 1704 book about the science of optics and the refraction of light) has a far richer, fuller sound than its predecessor and is the result of a more focused approach. Starting from scratch with an end goal rather than being an collection of existing pieces with additions and reworkings (as on ‘Ames Room’), it was made with different equipment and in different surroundings. Created between autumn 2008 and winter 2009, the album was mixed with Tarwater’s Bernd Jestram. More melodic and a little less experimental, it’s a fully coherent album and its beautiful combination of sweet hooks and lush, intricate textural detail ensure that it’s a place that listeners will want to return to. Silje’s beautiful, breathy vocals are projected further forward in the mix than previously, becoming less another texture than a central focus for the whole.
Orbiting around Silje’s unique vocals, tracks are constructed from a wide range of instruments and effects - guitars, drums, viola, bass, xylophone, electronics, keyboards, concertina, flute, trumpet, percussion and “basically anything i have lying around, adding random recordings of things, video clips, effects...” Initially utilising a computer to layer sound, Silje has increasingly tried to remove herself from the machine - reworking some of the material on a 4-track cassette recorder in an attempt to simplify things, but ultimately ending back with the computer exploding the material into "even more complicated stuff than before."

The album will be preceded by the release of two digital singles, a full US tour in June (supporting DM Stith), with a full period of touring around the album release.

Tamaryn.jpg

lastfmlogo.jpglast.fm Tamaryn Biography
Tamaryn are a duo from San Francisco fronted by Tamaryn originally from New Zealand. Their debut album “The Waves” was released on September 14th, 2010.

Pitchfork:Album Review Page
here
Tamaryn will surely get tagged as shoegaze even though The Waves has a thousand-yard stare. Its definitive characteristic is how vast it sounds: similar to My Morning Jacket's At Dawn, its plush, reverberating production is undoubtedly suited for headphones, but it has an expansive quality where it sounds like it could fill any space you put it in.

Husky but airy feminine vocals and blown-out guitar comes with a slate of readymade comparisons, and yet, it's Mazzy Star that I keep coming back to for Tamaryn. Though performed and produced in its entirety by Tamaryn and Rex John Shelverton, The Waves sounds like the product of a straight-up rock band, and in particular, it's the low-end that Shelverton provides that gives it a full-bodied physicality. On the title track, Tamaryn portrays a watery grave as something of a seductive allure, while the churning undertow of the bass drags you in. Meanwhile, "Mild Confusion" is one of the several times Tamaryn claims she uses her experience working in a psychiatrist's office as inspiration, and the stately guitars aim for a clarity its narrator so desperately seeks.

"Choirs of Winter" and "Haze Interior" slow The Waves down to a crawl, but even then, there's a heat rising off them. The former sounds like a victim of sunstroke if anything, while the latter is almost like a power trio undergoing the Disintegration Loops treatment, a four-minute decay that sounds like it's fading out from the moment it starts. While The Waves is often split between upbeat and dirgy tempos, when the two meet on "Sandstone", the results are epic. It's equal parts grit and vapor, a guitar sample volleying back and forth as every instrument twists in the wind.

The Waves is a confident debut in part because the group seems like it's thought through what it does. Tamaryn namedrop the exact influences you'd expect of them in interviews, the song titles are often literal descriptors, and even if the picture of Tamaryn striking and solitary in a desert landscape was placed within a pack of a thousand other images, you'd surely pick that one as being the most likely thing to be the album cover. The Waves is perfectly comfortable within its set of sonic parameters, and while that might be a concern in the future, the album shows a band mastering a very specified sound on its first try.

Concern - Caesarean
Reviewes by Boomkat
*Beautiful album of aged recordings, drones and field recordings - a must for followers of William Basinski* Caesarean's lead track, 'Discrete Memorial' is a real rarity within the field of ambient music: it's a piece that instantly takes hold of you, dragging you deeply into its faded, tape-eroded realm. Rather than stringing out drones from analogue synths, soft synths or field recordings, Concern's Gordon Ashworth instead calls upon the services of various acoustic sound sources (clarinet, banjo, guitars, organs and more), all collaged together in an almost tangibly physical recording environment that seems a million miles away from the computer-dominated soundscapes this genre generally throws your way. It's only the start of a very long journey (the album isn't too far off maxing out the disc), but you might have trouble moving on from 'Discrete Memorial'. It's really quite wonderful; full of faults and dropouts, an introductory piano riff fires up in a stuttering loop, before languid woodwind tones join in. In theory this would all sound a bit derivative of William Basinski, but Ashworth ably asserts a very different voice on these pieces and certainly doesn't adhere to any strictly repetitious loop-driven formula. Even on more conventionally drone-driven compositions like 'Mending' or 'Leaving Gold' there's very evidently something special about those shimmering harmonics and endlessly sustaining strings; as much as the music itself, it's to do with the production and the way the instruments dissolve into one another as Ashworth pieces the different elements together. Using both cassettes and quarter-inch tape, the album layers various crumbling stretches of acoustic sounds - perhaps never more adeptly than on the finely spliced 'From Warmth And From Violence' and its half-hour-plus follow-up 'Immersed In Envy, Porous With Forgetfulness', a formidable, slow-moving montage of ideas and sonic environments. Opening with ten minutes or so of dazzling metallic thrum, Ashworth goes on to pool sparse, untreated concrete sounds with overspilling harmonium chords to tremendous effect. Like Caesarian as a whole, it's not easy to pinpoint precisely what it is about all this that distinguishes Concern as something special, but take a listen and it'll soon become self-evident. Highly recommended.

The Amplifetes is a 4-piece band from Sweden. Being accomplished songwriters and producers on their own, the members have worked with names such as Kelis, Madonna, Grandmaster Flash and Peter Bjorn and John. While having occasionally crossed paths during the course of their careers, they have existed as a unit for about a year. The band think of themselves as a dream-team collaboration of their influences - listing 60s psychedelia, The Electric Light Orchestra, The Ramones, Elvis Costello, David Bowie and Chicago Trax Records House releases.

The highly addictive result can be heard in The Amplifetes debut single "It´s my life", a spitting image of urban life and a happy three-part marriage between garage pop, electro and punk. It was featured recently in a promo campaign for Italian fashion house Roberto Cavalli, starring a lightly dressed Milla Jovovich, creating quite a stir over Europe. The intriguing Cajun electronica of the follow up, "Whizz Kid", has seen the band continue to receive much love from radio stations and the blogosphere. Now their third single is out, the feverish road-trip psychedelia "Somebody New", and it carries the torch along in all aspects.
The framework for the production of material for The Amplifetes debut work was very much dictated, while not restricted, by geography and time. Due to the band members being set up in two different cities, most of the writing and recording interaction took place late nights over the internet. In fact, it was not until the final mixing sessions that the full band actually met! This created a very special atmosphere for the creative process, described by lead singer Peter as "a feeling of weightlessness, like being trapped inside a bubble of soft stone." The faceless communication and stillness of night formed the backdrop for the emerging of The Amplifetes debut album, which has just been completed and is scheduled to hit the stores this autumn. They have also been developing their live act and are booking now to tour the world in 2010.
