Dust - From A Dry Camel

Sunday, a day that goes perfectly for a little more classic type of choice of music. Today we screws a bit on the clock. At the dawn of the '70s, hard rock and early heavy metal were almost completely dominated by British innovators. Dust was one of the few American bands to try picking up the gauntlet, playing a progressive brand of proto-metal that was explicitly indebted to their British contemporaries. Formed around 1968, the group featured vocalist/guitarist Richie Wise and the teenaged rhythm section of bassist Kenny Aaronson (who also doubled on slide and steel guitars) and drummer Marc Bell; plus, Kenny Kerner served as the group's lyricist, manager, and producer.

Dust released their self-titled debut album in 1971 on Neil Bogart's pre-Casablanca label Kama Sutra. The follow-up, 1972's Hard Attack, sharpened the band's edge and intensified the power of their approach; thus, it became the more sought-after of the pair by collectors interested in the roots of American metal. However, Dust would record only those two albums; Aaronson joined Stories in 1973, and Wise and Kerner became a production team, also working with Stories; the following year, they would go on to helm the first two Kiss albums. Aaronson, meanwhile, became a prolific session bassist and Bell later became part of the New York punk scene, joining up with Richard Hell & the Voidoids and then moving on to the Ramones (adopting the name Marky Ramone).

The Dust is a band that really should have a place in the disc tray or in vinyl shelf, I own the "Hard Attack" but not actually the first album. Hopefully, I run on one, where the condition of the album is good in the future.

Todays tune ”From A Dry Camel” is taken from the self titled debut album with Dust. With a double gong crashes, and From A Dry Camel launches into a kind of doomy Sabbath-riff. This is a great piece of early metal. Enjoy!

Yamato - Drummers of Japan

Yamato visited Stockholm 2 days ago.

Wadaiko Yamato 和太鼓倭 is a Japanese musical group of taiko drummers founded in 1993 by Masa Ogawa. In Japanese, the word 和太鼓 "wadaiko" translates as "Japanese drum" and "Yamato" was the former name of the city of Nara, the group's birthplace.
Since its creation, the group has made over one thousand live performances to over one million people in more than 20 countries in Asia, Europe, and the US.

Really amazing thing to experience, They had drums in different sizes and different sounds. The biggest drum, was made of an 450 year old oak, and it was worth about 6 million skr .... thats something huh.
See the drum the guy is leaving? Thats the drum Im talking about.

Inbetween the smashing drums sound one can hear their yealling :).

More Pictures,

Foo Fighters - White Limo

Today, it is a day that I want, I can not resist! More Foo Fighters, just as I gossiped about yesterday, I just have to share with you White Limo, it's so cool.

Todays tune ”White Limo” is taken from the upcoming album Wasting Light, will be released April 12. White Limo was a Valentine's Day gift to their beloved fans and me. A kick-ass shot-on-VHS video of "White Limo" starring Motorhead's own Lemmy Kilmister as the driver and Grohl (and wife Jordyn), Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear as players in scenarios no doubt familiar to any aficionado of "classic" '80s hard rock videos. Enjoy!

Buy Foo Fighters photos at special price!

This is Micke Sandström's favorite band, Foo Fighters are now current with events in Sweden. On March 4 they play at Nalen in Stockholm and later in the summer, they play at the Stadium. He photographed the Foo Fighters at the festival Where The Action Is, 2008. There they made an awesome show that becomes an unforgettable memory. Right now you have the opportunity to buy some of his photos of Foo Fighters to a really great price. Regular price of his prints in 30x40 cm is one 550kr, and now you can find bargains for the low price of 250 SEK. He has chosen five fotoutstkrifter which I now lowers the price over a short period.

I really enjoyed the home made video of the tune White Limo that has been released already, maybe it will be tomorrows tune, who knows :) The new tune ”Rope” is kinda cool, a great foo tune so to say, it’s not the most punchy single they have done, but still it have its power, great verse and nice riffs.

Band of Horses - Compliments

Band Of Horses is out touring and once again they did a stop in Sweden for some gigs and yesterday did Ben Bridwell and Co a visit in Stockholm and for a evening at Annexet. The show was pretty good, but not the best one, i believe i have seen these guys 5 times live already, they do best in a smaller arena, like Debaser or something similar, this is to big. Even if their goal is to conquer the bigger arenas to grow bigger as all bands have. It will be interesting to see them live again this summer when they open up for Foo Fighters.

Micke Sandström has photographed them at the festival Way Out West and the "Trägår'n" in Gothenburg. Right now you have the opportunity to buy some of his photos of Band Of Horses to a really great price. Regular price for my prints at 30x40 cm 1550 SEK, and now you can find bargains for the low price of 250 SEK. He has selected his own five favorites as he lowers the price over a short period. To see more images which are the price reductions to go into here.

Here is some of them!

I'm fixing a drink in the morning
With a wavy tongue
You may have stayed too long

You're splitting apart at the seams
From the hospital call
You've known him so long

If there's a God up in the air
Someone looking over everyone
At least you got something to fall back on

Deep in the heart of the country
Was a house I built from logs
A raven and a lady hawk

Quiet and calm through the day
See the sun burn through the fog
Approaching was a yellow dog

If there's a God up in the air
Someone looking over everyone
At least you got something to fall back on
And what are people really for?
Does any body even care?
I'll bet you get a lot of compliments down there

If there's a God up in the air
Someone looking over everyone
At least you got something to fall back on
And do you got something to say?
Isn't something coming over you?
Do you got important things still left to do?

Todays tune "Compliments" is the first single from Band of Horses third album Infinite Arms, which was released in April 2010.

Led Zeppelin - Heartbreaker

Its Classics time!!!
What else is more classic than Led Zeppelin, This band have ment so much for many musicians over the years. Its like we dont do this kinda music anymore.

Black Crows came very near but its not it.
Can u come up with anymore band that nearly come up to Zeppelin kinda music?

Jones and Page did get together with drummer Taylor Hawkins and the Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl, however, to perform a few Zeppelin songs live in London in 2008.

Dave Grohl

Jason Bonham.

But persistent subsequent rumors suggested that Jones, Page, and Jason Bonham might be on the verge of recording with a new singer, but no such group ever materialized. Expect to hear continued Zep reunion rumors in the future, though — as long as sufficient band members are still around to reunite.
That would be awesome I think.

If there will be any reunion I do hope they will travel a bit and come to Europe as well :)

Ladys and Gents, Here is Led Zeppelin!

Peace and Love to u all, Thetania

A bit of The Yardbirds as well, with Mr Page.

Just found a VERY early Jimmy Page...haha its soo cool. Look
