Deep Purple – Made in Japan (1972)

Posted in 1972, Deep Purple, En vivo, Hard Rock, Rock on 6 noviembre 2016 by wirtis

Hello my fucking looser and lovely friends. Here I come again, once more. Like always Wirtis does and always will. I promise that, sucker.

deep_purple-made_in_japan_frontToday I bring you a classical you, for sure, must to know: Deep Purple – Made in Japan from 1972. You already meet me, bró, I like to share, from time to time, some classical in my blog. However, this time is specially because this record is dedicated for a friend of mine: the big Roberto Pawell or Diego M, however you want to call him is the same, he is always there. The fact is that friend is not only that, no brothers, he is – in our friend gang – our Heisemberg. Wait a second, don`t misunderstand me, please, in only saying and is what I want to tell that he is the one who knows about the “thing” we like to joint. So, when we are giving love to our seeds but something in the environment plays against us; we took our fuckung cellphones and just give a call to our friend, the always good guy Roberto and said: ¡Help, please!

And he comes, every time. Maybe not in time, but he comes. Always, our friend, come. So when that beautiful moment happens, we open our doors and our hearth to Roberto and putted our seeds and their health in his hands. And, let me tell you boy, he always knows what to do. So, today, while I’m waiting for him I decided post this record that I know he liked a lot. Here I let you this classical from England rock and roll. Download it here: Deep Purple – Made in Japan.

HartBonamassa_Dont_ExplainGood afternoom my brothers. Today i bring you a great piece of rock and roll: “Don`t explain” by Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa.

I don`t know if you knew about them. Me really don`t, until few days ago when a friend told me: Hey, Miguel, let play some rock and roll, would you? Let me explain one thing about me: I don`t feel confident about play with others, I don`t trust myself, you know so I felt scare. However that`s happened always since I remember. So I thought: “fuck, Miguel, you can`t be such a pussy shit like you was, come on, be a man”  And so do it. I said my friend: ok, girl, let roll.

So, we are practice once a week. Cool, real cool. So, was her who meet me Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa. With this album that is great. Here you are going to find a punch of excellent covers, in rock and roll mood. I strongly recommended for dirty mind like yours, my visitor friend. And, if you like rock and roll in their classical form – I mind drums, bass and guitar – here you`ll found a lot. But, at list for me, the most great thing in this record is Beth Hart voice. This woman sing like hell. My friend told me she is the Janis of this days. I agree with her. So friends let this piece of rock and roll: Beth Hart & Joe Bonamassa – Don`t explain.

Javier Soriano – 10 Manos (2014)

Posted in España, Hard Rock, Javier Soriano, Mendoza, Rock with tags , , , , , on 6 octubre 2014 by wirtis

10 manos (1)

Hoy les traigo un disco de hard rock, por llamarlo de algún modo porque los músicos – y los artistas en general – se niegan a etiquetar su arte. Excepto, claro, que tengan un referente obvio. Y el disco que les traigo lo tiene, es el rock and roll. En su vertiente más moderna, de guitarras constantes y presentes. Dueñas del escenario. Y es que Javier Soriano es un guitarrista.

Pero, como sucede con todo artista, el producto es personal. Más allá del género o influencia que tenga. 10 manos, se desenvuelve en los modos del hard rock pero con características propias.

Aclarado eso, les cuento que Javier Soriano es un chabón de acá muy cerca de mi casa, con el que cursé la primaria y compartí muchas meriendas. De más adolescentes nos emborrachamos varias veces y compartimos asados. Hace diez años, más o menos, que no lo veo. Se fue a vivir a España. Con todo, sigue siendo un amigo presente para los vagos acá en Mendoza.

Entiendo que se haya quedado allá porque vive de la música. Lo felicito por eso y lo festejo. Es lo más justo porque es un excelente guitarrista.

10 Manos es su primer disco solista – creo yo – y es un artefacto de rock and roll con guiños funks, souls y bluseros. Como emblema patrio Soriano versiona “Seguir viviendo sin tu amor” de Spinetta. Personalmente recomiendo los temas propios de este trovador de guitarra eléctrica y corazón gitano. Acá se los dejo, bájenlo, disfrútenlo y claro, difúndanlo.

Javier Soriano – 10 Manos.

Acorazado Potemkin – Remolino (2014)

Posted in 2014, Acorazado Potemkin, Argentina, Folk, Hard Rock, Indie, Pequeña Orquesta Reincidentes, Punk, R&B, Raw, Rioplatenses, Rock on 30 julio 2014 by wirtis

¡Estoy la mar de contento chavales! Compré Hamlet en historieta, encargué Bonemachine y conseguí el último de mis héroes del rock local, los Acorazados Potemkin.

APRemolinoTAPASí, ya sé. Soy un consumista total. Muchas veces pienso al respecto. Muchas veces lo reflexiono mientras el azúcar fluye. Entiendo que soy un tipo consumista. ¿Qué es el consumismo? Me pregunto luego.

En la red encontré esto: “Consumismo es el afán indiscriminado por comprar cosas. Aunque no hagan falta.” Yo consumo mucho es verdad. Y cosas que no me hacen falta. Porque consumo muchos discos, películas y libros. Así mi hogar se ha transformado en un espacio inundado. No obstante, cavilo en mi defensa, si bien el objeto me interesa como tal (es decir, disfruto tenerlos entre mis manos) más es la satisfacción anímica.  

Y es que he aprendido de mí – o he construido, no estoy seguro – que no soy un coleccionista per sé. Es decir, si bien me gustan los objetos y tengo mis gemas; no es estola cosa lo que me desespera. Si no el contenido, lo abstracto que me llega al alma y me la parte mostrándome qué tan efímero soy.

APRemolinoDORSOY he perdido varias cosas, se han escapado ya sea por negligencia mía – en general es así – o por haber confiado en los chabones equivocados. La cuestión es que no ha sido tan doloroso y ni se ha transformado en un rencor presente. Para nada. Tengo otras cosas a las que aferrarme. Y, tengo para mí, que es propio de la gente golpeada y atormentada el aferrarse a las cosas y darles valor.

Tengo, también para mí, que mientras más triste y alienada está un alma, a cosas más banales le da importancia. Tal es así las fanáticas de la moda (¿Hay algo más efímero? No, si la palabra contiene el sema “pasajero”). No voy a detenerme en ellas porque siempre están ricas y es un placer cogérselas.

Hay otros que no son así. Que tuvieron en suerte descubrir (o entender, creo mejor) que la belleza es una abstracción. Que se accede mediante el arte porque es la forma de expresión que más semeja la creación. Esta en el sentido de algo oriundo ajeno al hombre por sí como lo es la naturaleza.  

La cuestión, para abreviar y no exceder los párrafos, es que soy un tipo consumista dentro de la media. Porque es imposible no serlo, de uno u otro modo, hoy en día.  Pero soberbiamente me sitúo donde los iluminados, donde los prodigios que gustan del arte. Y que simbolizan el consumo como una forma de reproducción del arte. Ya sea como difusión ya sea como asimilación e inspiración para generar más.

En ese lugar están los Acorazado Potemkin. Tipos que vienen de bandas trascendentes por calidad y significación[1]  y que siguen jugando con los sonidos y las posibilidades. La banda ya tiene un sonido. Propio. Característico e inconfundible. Son un montón de adjetivos nobles, ya sé, pero me cuesta definir con precisión porqué Acorazado Potemkin es arte.

Asique se los dejo a ustedes. Con este disco que la banda dejó en descarga libre y gratuita en su web. Aprovechen y consuman. Así, en esta forma casi abstracta como es la red. Y háganlo sin culpas hermanos, que no de otra cosa se trató este post. Acá.   

[1] Leí que Patria o muerte de Don Cornelio y la Zona es un antecedente si no piedra basal de lo que se conoció como Grunge. Interesante.

 

Xulu – Piedra piramidal (2014)

Posted in 2014, Alternativo, Argentina, Hard Rock, Houdini, Indie, San Luis, Xulu with tags , , , , , on 21 mayo 2014 by wirtis

TAPA¿Qué hubiese pasado si una banda de las características de A Perfect Circle hubiera aparecido en estas latitudes pregonando ese rock de riffs intrincados y sonidos flasheros? Seguramente habrían pasado desapercibidos y callados.

Por suerte para nosotros, A Perfect Circle nació allá, del otro lado del charco, donde la meca y el sueño se mixturan y se funden una realidad llena de posibilidades y réditos.

Con todo, y no solo por influencia sino por entenderlo como el medio más apropiado para expresar una visión estética, una búsqueda estelar; surgió – si mal no recuerdo hace ya unos dos años – en la república separatista de San Luis, Xulu. Gran banda de dialéctica punkiana devenida en flash progresivo moderno. Así, tal vez, se me ocurre que lo podría definir. Aunque me quedo corto. Siempre me quedo corto.

Y es que sí, hay una línea clara en la propuesta de estos pibes de Xulu. Porque se reconoce el referente, se aprecia un sonido familiar. Y he ahí lo bueno, porque se percibe pero es solo eso porque el sonido de Xulu es personal y propio. Las guitarras densas, las voces rasgadas, el ritmo preciso, firme. El hecho de que sean un power trío (en todo lo certero que el término conlleva) entre varias virtudes legitiman mi discurrir.

Bueno, no me voy a extender demasiado.

Huelgan las palabras, espera la música.

Acá está, para ustedes: Xulu.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hablan por la Espalda – Macumba (2009)

Posted in 2009, Candombe, Garage, Hablan por la Espalda, Hard Rock, R&B, Rioplatenses, Rock, Uruguay with tags , , , , , on 27 marzo 2014 by wirtis

Hablan por la espaldaHello my brothers, here I’m again with more music, with more words and more pain. Yes because today I bring you one of this latin band that used to cry smiling. Have you hear someone of these groups, brother?? Maybe you do, if you like to looking in American continent, in south and middle part, far away from north American peace, far away from that shit. Ands close of this land where we learn to cry moving our bodies, smiling our pain.

It`s a fact that we people have to learn to crypt pain behind mask of smiling because we always have been submitted. Also quick rhythm configured genres like cumbia, guaracha y camdombe.  After came rock and roll and youngness rich music and everything began to be more crazy – I mind popularly way because art always have been crazy and tell you more, artist must be “crazy” people – and began to mix everything. Like youngness always does.

Well Hablan por la Espalda (Spoke from behind) is a perfect example of that mix: a punch of young kids rocking all over the place but playing their typical genre: camdombe. Yes sucker. Hablan por la Espalda plays camdombe but, in the same way of Chicha peruana; does with rock and roll instrumentation.

Good, a real good band is this. Have pass a long time since a brother from the web – like you or you – stop by and told me: Hey Wirtis, Bufón was a real good band but much better is this one! And send me this record.

I let the time goes, I spend a few years earing another stuff. Because i`m a human been, because was in other fly. But one day, one good day y remember this band and I was looking something powerful, so thought: maybe Miguel, give Hablan por la Espalda a chance and made it. Thanks god made it because is a great band with personality. They sound raw, they sound honestly and they sound latinos. So here I let you this beautifull disc for you: Hablan por la Espalda – Macumba.

L.A. Guns – Cuts (1992)

Posted in 1992, EEUU, Glam, Hard Rock, L.A. Guns, Rock with tags , , , , , on 9 marzo 2014 by wirtis

Hello you fucking looser, today i bring you a Little bit of glam rock. Do you know about this esthetic movement, man? No? I supposed that, so I’m going  to explain.

L.A. guns - 1992 - Cuts

Glam rock is a rock and roll movement born it in lately seventies, with groups like Hanoi Rocks, The Dictators, The New Yoks Dolls and the fucking and ugly pioneers of all this movement, at list, in the very beginning: Kiss (excuse me boy but I real don´t like this group). From this band – except from Hanoi Rocks; the glam movement took the way of dress. I mean very colorful clothes, a lot of makeup and a machismo. So, as you can see, glam rock is a strange mix.

At beginning glam music was softer than pioneers groups. But, in nineties, when grunge arrive and produced a change of paradigms groups had to invent their self or die. A lot of group dies. I raise my glass and drink to that.

But others, like this band to day I offer you, could survive in musical business. Some of them, with honestly and work, others selling their ass.  The L.A. Guns are in first one, of course. And, now, I’m going to tell you why I think that way: Because,   L.A. Guns have played a real hard rock, with heavy attitude and raw feeling. Because L.A. Guns have evolved, over the years, their sound. If you listen last stage (without Tracii Guns), you`ll find a very good band, with their own sound beyond musicians. And, in last step, I want to say that L.A. Guns have maintain is personality beyond Guns and Roses – of course that, their parental with famous band have give them access  to bussnies but, like I said, they have earned with work and heavy hard rock. Ah, another thing I love from this boys is that their music is very street.

So, until now, you should have learned that glam rock is a rock and roll movement that`s characterize for ridiculous clothes and heavy guitars. You should have to know, too, that L.A. Guns are one of the best and genuine band in this movement, a band that have recorded a real, real good disc that you have to listen, at list, once.

Here I let you the last from their golden age, with their classical formation. For me is great, not for all the bullshit I just told you, no brother. Is great for me because makes me remember when I meet her, the first time a saw her blue eyes.

So, here I let you this gem of rock and roll, a great and very short Ep with two cover and two original songs. Enjoy and get it: L.A. Guns – Cuts.

Electric Shit – Dowtown Blues (Ep)

Posted in Blues, Boogie, Electric Shit, Hard Rock, Rock with tags , , , , on 29 diciembre 2013 by wirtis

ImageHello my brothers, here i come again. ¡Twice in a day, wau Miguel, what in hells happen to you! I don`t know but I need to writte. I need it a lot, so here I`m again. With more music.

So you must to listen if you want to know about new forms in blues.

Here you have: Electric Shit – Downtown Blues. Enjoy, you sucker.

Adrenaline Mod – Coverta (2013)

Posted in 2013, Adrenaline Mod, Alternativo, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Rock with tags , , , on 11 abril 2013 by wirtis

Hello my friend tonight i bring you a super band, another one (because this trick isn`t new, we have a lot of examples). This time is Adrenaline Mod. A super group by formed members of Symphony x (Rusell Allen), Dream Theatre (Mike Portnoy), Sonic Stomp (Mike Orlfolderando) and Disturbed (John Moyer). Wau!! It`s a fucking hell of a band ¿Right? I think so. But, honestly and for saying the true I had – maybe a lot – of expectations from this boys, especially   for Portnoy participation.

Don`t let me be miss understand friends, I`m not saying this isn`t a very good rock and roll album: It`s great, but, in order of my taste the record don`t break the common sound of another bands in the same line. The disc I bring you today is a cover album and is good, real good if you are looking for speed and quality but, and that`s my complaint; they sound like another band from the mainstream. Maybe, if they continue playing; in the future will publish something unique and accord their reputations. I don`t know but I hope so.

Well friends this post is for my friend Agustín Juarez the dark voice behind “AVERNOS EN LA RADIO”, you can listen him here:  http://www.radioarenas.com.ar/

Right my friends here I let you this piece of rock and roll: Adrenaline Mod. Enjoy and listen at high volume.
