The 1000 tracks that inspired Daft Punk.
Launched on the website of Soundcloud and Spotify by dj CK303, a play list of over 1000 songs (which you understand correctly) has inspired and influenced the creativity and work of Daft Punk. The French duet, which has reinvented electronic music, can look back on a career spanning more than twenty years.
The group was founded by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter and entered the discography of the global music scene in 1997 with "Homework", one of the most influential albums of the 90s: one should easily remember the single "Around the world" just to get an idea of the size of this record.
The last record is from 2013, and it's the "Random Access Memories" with one of the most famous songs of those 10 years: "Get Lucky". Recently Daft Punk worked with The Weeknd to record two songs from the singer's last R & B album: "Starboy" and "Feel It Coming". Daft Punk's biography and work deserve even more attention, but there is nothing better than going into the folds of their creativity and this rich, rich play list of songs that have inspired their way of making music, (quietly) listening.
After the Pre-FEST there will be a change of venue for the main event, the FEST. The FEST concerts include a dozen venues near the city's Main Street and the main outdoor arena on Bo Diddley Square. Tippenage Bottlerocket @ High Dive - Despite the large selection of bands represented at the festival, one of my strong nails was Teenage Bottlerocket in all kinds of sauces.
I go to the High Dive on time and take a position: not too close to the crowd, but not too far away from the theater. Flatliners @ Bo Diddley Plaza - The flagship band of Mazzacore, Flatliners, had the honor of playing on the central stage. Seen a few months ago in Milan, although not really in my honour, I have to say that they gave a really great concert: massive, compact and superrodated to the delight of the many fans who crowded into the front rows.
Okay, it seems a bit like listening to the melodies of copyrights (the person writing the pieces at the end is the same person), but with a "dirtier" approach: they still bring home a nice concert with dignity. Snapbox @ Bo Diddle Plaza - Un tinfo norstalgico. Time passes, they have melted a few times and honestly I thought I was standing in front of a "softened" group.
They gave a great concert, 40 minutes grainy, with the flag of the "old school" at the top. Bo Diddle Plaza - Unfortunately they were half disappointed. They appear in a revised line-up due to Chris Wollard's unexpected absence (a few days later there is a communiqué in which he says he has to pull the plug for a while) and the group suffers so much.
The lack of the second guitar is very noticeable, which leads to the fact that the group loses a little "pulling power", even though they really do do do it with all their strength. After half of the concert Dan Andriano makes a pleasant break-in, and shortly afterwards Chris Creswell from Flatiners comes out with the second guitar to improve the situation. Cambia decisive.
Too bad, because the full cast for the whole concert would have been a different story. Frankly, I think that they could not do more, I hope to put them in a different situation, because of the bitterness in the mouth of a concert a little "monk". Louie 88 Finger @ 8 seconds - I go to the 8 seconds not to fight before the conception of the Lillingtons, not particularly interested in their concert.
Nevertheless, while I'm still slurping a free outdoor PIBR at the venue, I keep my ear on stage. The 88 Finger Louie do not inspire me, I have a small hole and follow the advice of the good Max Rozzo, we go to the Sunshine State. I don't know her at all, but Max lets us know that the drummer of the group is Warren Oakes, former historian of Against Me!....
It makes me smile and think, because I think of the delirium of the crowd that is taking part in AM! at Bo Diddley Plaza and the few dozen people who are there for them, even though they are really very good. Another little pleasant surprise from the party. Lillingtons @ 8 Seconds - At the end of my first day of celebration there are still the Lillingtons and it's up to them again to make my little heart beat.
It couldn't have ended better, really. The 8 seconds are very well packed now, it's a crazy heat, but I can work out a corner where you can breathe and where you can see the whole stage very well. They go on stage, start with Drawing Down The Star and turn the magic again.
Loosey's - Day 2 begins with this Chicago group. During the pre-feast we met bassist Ryan at the hotel, who told us about his group, where he plays the drummer of Off With Their heads. Team Bottlerocket @ Bo Diddley Plaza - Ed anncora una vulta Bottlerocket!
Unlike the Daily 1, the slots were a good 1 hour, in addition to the usual ladder and a couple of other characters spent a lot of time shooting bullshit, and you know that Ray, when he makes an effort, is really a master. off With Their heads @ Bo Diddley Plaza - played at Bo Diddley Plaza - played at Open University, and was one of the groups I wanted to see the most.
I was afraid that they might suffer on the big stage, but instead they hold up well. The climate begins to be less mild, but given the winter that awaits me in Milan, I think that an outdoor stay is still the best option. I' m not a beach slang kid in Bo Diddley Plaza, I' m a big fan.
Like almost all bands that play several times between Fest and Pre-Fest, I don't notice any big differences in the setlist, even if I don't know them: same jokes, same jokes (see stack of Santana's songs), but I like their appearance also this time, and they are among the best bands to be seen in this long musical marathon.
I decide to see the Canadian Stomp Records Stomp Records Stomp Nelly's Stories (Isotope, Real McKenzies etc.) because I talked to the singer some time ago to make some dates in Italy; I remember that it seemed very nice to me to pity that I couldn't make it (never touring Italy in summer: boys are a rule).
And that' s a shame, because despite all the crap on stage they give a good concert. It' s a good group and the songs have that aftertaste a little like Ramones and a little like TC which are not bad at all. "Go to the career suicides, they're my friends and they're a pain in the ass."
Except for the official festive app note, frankly with little conviction, despite the fact that you can trust Jimmy blindly. There were really a lot of people who could see them: five seconds after they went on stage, the wild shooting pogos, the vicious circles and I ran away to keep the safety distance. High Dive - You win the award "Most Funny live of the Fest" with low hands.
That could be the end of this micro-review, who knows what the bands expects. Seen several times in the last European tours and their trick is simple: Before the concert they get drunk to shit and when they are reduced to shit they start to sound. Again this time their technique works amazingly, maybe thanks to a first class setlist, but the high diving just seemed to explode.
They certainly don't sound good by their own accounts, but punk rocking is too, isn't it? High Dive - Already the third day begins very early to feel the tiredness - 7 days in a row of concerts including pre-pre-fest unofficially - I have the knees of a 90 year old and standing for a long time is a pain, but there is squirtgun with an extraordinary line-up: Jorge Orillac (young man from Panama), the brothers Mass and Flaviorgini, Zac Damon and a certain Dan Panic.
In the first of the two planned performances, Squirtgun just played the covers fishing of the millions of bands in which the year fought or contributed in some way (Screeching Weasels, Queers, Common Riders, Riverdales, Mopes, Zoinks, etc.), in short, for half a fish out of the water like me it was a blessing to start the day.
At the end of the concert we approach their banquet and have the opportunity to talk to the fair, which is not only very nice and friendly, but also shows a practically perfect Italian. Medium Jeans @ Bo Diddley Plaza - I miss the killers and have time to see the last pieces of the Vacation Bible School (very cool) in high dive before I go to Bo Diddley Plaza to see the Mean Jeans, a group I've been waiting for with so much pleasure.
The waiting hasn't disappointed the group, really unbelievable. At the time of the feast they tried it with the mountain jam (which apparently thanked them, but gave spades). We go to the restaurant and notice an inhuman queue at the entrance (the only time practically in the whole festival) and after about 25 minutes of waiting we finally manage to enter: beer and go on stage of a boy with a clean face that already evokes sympathy.
He takes an acoustic guitar and plays his songs between the stories, very melodic, but with a clear punk backdrop. Ironic Chic @ Bo Diddley Plaza - Giuro. I tried to give him a shot, but I can't, I really can't. After spending an afternoon wandering around Gainesville and jumping from one concert to another, we return to High Diver to see Squirt Gun again, this show only includes her songs in the line-up.
Allergy for Sie, ein weiterer sonniger Nachmittag, Wed n For You, Mary Ann etc etc etc. etc. until an unexpected moment: go on stage Luke of Copyrights, and Panic switches to the microphone for your guest list. I don't even know why, but seeing him so well cast, maybe thinking about the good moments on stage with SW, really puts me in a good mood.
Grand bel concert, annche a questo viro! Copyrights @ High Performance - The Copyrights are practically the last "big ones". Since they are the favorites of the festival inhabitants, the High Diver is now incredibly full. The whole world is there, pushing, suffocating heat and lack of oxygen force me to attend the concert, only sometimes to be able to refuse.
I' m sorry, because for what I could hear (pieces from the entire discography), they gave a really great concert. A nice coincidence (?) makes it so that at the end of "my" party two Italian bands of friends are there, I dare to say "locals". RCB instead I saw them in the USA (3 times in 7 days) more than in Italy; during these days together I got to know them a little better and also appreciated them in the musical area.
Frankly, in the context that had been created at Loosey was a secondary aspect, there was a unique atmosphere, we were all friends, all together happy at the moment, but with a heart a little "sad and aware that the festival and the holiday had come to an end. Scattered considerations: Are 400 tapes really needed in 5 days?
Um, does it make sense to see the same tape four days in a row? I notice that I wrote a lot when you read and you reached the end, so much respect for you and thanks for your patience. I tried to sum up as much as possible, spent a few words for each of the bands I saw, and I hope I managed to give even a small part of it an impression of what the festival really is.
It was nice to see so many friends, meet good people, see so many good bands and discover so many interesting ones.
