The three founding members of Groundation (Harrison Stafford, Marcus Urani and Ryan Newman) join forces with the legendary Jamaican drummer Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace (who worked with numerous reggae artists including The Gladiators, Inner Circle, Prince Far I, Sound Dimension, Burning Spear and Ijahman Levi.) and the grammy nominated Jazz guitarist Will Bernard (has played with many musicians including Jai Uttal and the Pagan Love Orchestra, The Coup, Robert Walter's 20th Congress, MG5 (formerly Frequinox), Idris Muhammad, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Zigaboo Modeliste, Groundation and the Stanton Moore Trio.) to form Rockamovya. The name comes from Leroy Horsemouth Wallace, Jamaican patios style and is meant to show the unity and power of the music.
The sound is fresh and little different from the Groundation works, but it remains deeply rooted in Reggae and Jamaican popular music with influences of Soul and Jazz. Harrisons voice is still very powerful, so you can feel the Groundation rhythms. This is a record i can recommend to all fans of Groundation.

IAMX is the solo musical project of Chris Corner. IAMX is more electronic than Sneaker Pimps, triphop style is no longer, still you can hear that Corner is behind the mic. Yesterday IAMX visit Debaser/Stockholm Sweden for a gig.
To be honest, this is the first time that i heard IAMX. The guys and the crew was really nice, lay´d back and didn't hurry or had that typical on tour stress, but when all the gear was in and it got time for building the stage, then i got a bit suspicious a golden trojan horse entered the stage, it wasn't the big one as in the Troja Movie, it was a small saddle horse.
Well the gig was not bad at all, even if I'm not to fancy about Electronica.
Corner has a good voice and hell of a stage attitude, he is a star indeed.
The other guys did very well, Tom smashed the drums skins heavily, Janine shanked
as she was in a rockband and so did Dean.
Was out for some drum shopping at Hellstone with Tom (Drummer) and yes he found what he was looking for.
Todays tune is Spit It Out from the album "The Alternative"

Sneaker Pimps are a British Trip-hop band formed in Hartlepool, England in 1995(Wikipedia) and IAMX website (1989). Sneaker Pimps are best known for their first album Becoming X (1996). They took their name from an article the Beastie Boys published in their Grand Royal magazine about a man they hired to track down classic sneakers.
The band's founding members were Chris Corner and Liam Howe (both ex-DJs), who then recruited Kelli Dayton (formerly of Lumieres, now recording under the name Kelli Ali) for vocal duties. But when they started to work with thier second album, on which Corner provided the guide vocals was better suited his voice, especially in regard to the more raw, personal quality of the lyrics. Corner became the singer and
Dayton was asked to leave the group.
Atm Corner is out with his Solo thing (IAMX) more of that tomorrow.
Todays tune is an old tune from thier Becoming X and with Dayton on vocal.

This time it was great, the opening act had call in sick so only the main band was able to perform witch in other hand gave us the opportunity to do more detail work and a better chance to know the guys, witch helps when the gig is over.
I also got a song for taking pictures with my newly bought system camera, but im still on the novice level to be able to make any decent picture, but i got some, also took some with my pocket camera as i usually do, got two snapshots for you guys.

One more day of Mr Joe Bonamassa, as Thetania wrote it was great evening at Berns/Stockholm.
This was the first time that i was able to see him live, got a few records with him that i do like.
Oh boy this was a great one, beat the time with my foot the whole show and thats is kinda rearly these days as you get kinda
jaded during the years with shows every second day. Some of the tunes really hit my soul and i really like that he plays with the tunes and has one finger in every style, but the style he masters the best is the blues witch i believe if he continue will be a real master at as he really can handle the guitar already.
As for yesterdays tune Joe's dream really came thru when he got the chance to play with one of his heroes "Eric Clapton"
That most be part of the best day of his life.
Got a few snap shoots from the evening.
The first one is when he having fun with a flying v and playing some harder stuff.
Second one was a amazing part of the show when he took his acoustic and showed that he really mastered a piece of wood.
Todays tune is a studio footage for the song "Ballad of John Henry" from the 2009 CD of the same name. If you can, the video was made to be seen in HD for both video and sound.
John Henry is an American folk hero, famous for having raced against a steam powered hammer and won, only to die in victory with his hammer in his hand. He has been the subject of numerous songs, stories, plays, and novels.
