Rude Boy

Posted On 09.47 by Anto Cuplis 0 komentar

Rude Boy is a super-high energy ska/roots/rock/reggae 5-piece dynamo from Ottawa that exploded out of the gate in 1998 with their now classic debut album Shut Up & Dance released on Montreal’s Stomp records -the label that also brought us Bedouin Soundclash.
Formed around main singer/songwriter Scott Amey, Rude Boy follows the trail blazed by The Specials, The English Beat, and other bands from the 2-tone era. Meld purist early sixties style reggae with catchy pop driven numbers, add a dash of clever lyrical lament and you have Canada’s best kept ska secret.
Reborn in 2008 with the original members, Rude Boy has "dusted off the cobwebs" and stormed back onto the ska scene with a re-release of Shut Up & Dance as well as a second album, Rude Boy 2, to be released this year. A third album is written and the new material will be polished on the road with the 1980 motorhome the band rebuilt and named "The Ska-V" on their recent western Canadian tour.

root diamoons

Posted On 00.24 by Anto Cuplis 0 komentar

Those lads that in 2001 with more enthusiasm than skill with their instruments started doing music in the Horta-Guinardo district of Barcelona under the name of The Short Skankers are today ROOT DIAMOONS. A consolidated experienced and awarded project that collects the legacy of traditional ska, rocksteady and genuine ska-jazz from the Jamaican geniuses of the 60’s -meaning Jackie Opel, The Skatalites or Justin Hinds & The Dominoes- with the same fondness with which they listen to the American revivalists of the 90’s such as Hepcat, The Articles, Jump With Joey and The Slackers.
Elegance is owned or not . It is not enough to show off in a just bought Armani suit or to emulate the pioneers in a futile attempt. Style written in capital letters cannot be pretended, it is acquired and assimilated after long years of obsessive listening to the classics and embodying crystal clear ideas on stage. Hundreds of hours spent in a noble cause with giants like John Coltrane, Charlie Mingus, Charlie Parker, the Soul Vendors and Lyn Taitt & The Jets. With record labels like Blue Note, Atlantic, Studio One and Treasure Isle.
Definitively a sure bet from the Brixton Records-Silver Bullets factory: 14 tracks with dance floor vocation that help us to face life with an upbeat attitude. As if raiders in search of the very essence of Jamaican roots and bringing it to the jazz side or as teenagers in love with an uptown girl whose name might be Laila or Mary Ann.

Terry Hall

Terry Hall (born Terence Edward Hall; 19 March 1959, in Coventry, England) is the lead singer of The Specials, and formerly of Fun Boy Three, The Colourfield, Terry, Blair & Anouchka and Vegas. He released his first solo album, Home, in 1994.


Posted On 08.43 by Anto Cuplis 0 komentar

Vegas is the self-titled d├ębut album by the duo of ex-Eurythmics member David A. Stewart and Terry Hall formerly of The Specials.The album was promoted by three singles - "Possessed" and "She" in September and November of 1992 and "Walk Into The Wind" in April 1993.


Terry, Blair & Anouchka

Posted On 08.21 by Anto Cuplis 0 komentar

Terry, Blair & Anouchka was a musical outfit, active in the early 1990s. The group was formed by Coventry born singer Terry Hall, American actress Blair Booth and jeweller Anouchka Grose.Terry, Blair & Anouchka were formed shortly after the dissolution of Terry's previous musical project The Colourfield. All three members shared a love for '60s pop, as well as kitschy mainstream pop, as evidenced on the trio's cover of Captain & Tennille's "Love Will Keep Us Together." Their debut single "Missing," was released in the autumn of 1989 and while it didn't make much of an impact (peaking at number 75 on the UK singles charts), it did have the distinct dishonour of making the Guinness Book of Records list of least successful singles by any act.
