Sound-Exploring Los Angeles Duo TANGIENTS Reinjects COCTEAU TWINS Banger ‘HAZEL’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

18 March 2019

Los Angeles duo TANGIENTS is a “two-sided enigma, a dichotomy, a shadow and its’ reflection. Maybe they have something to prove. Maybe they can’t decide if they’re a modern day post-punk outfit or an early-80s-inspired shoegaze dreamscape weavers. Maybe it doesn’t matter, because it hits.”

Their brand new single is a cover of HAZEL, a stomping song by Scottish ethereal dream pop legends COCTEAU TWINS released as a B-side on their 1983 single ‘Peppermint Pig‘. The breathtaking performance of TANGIENTS inventive interpretation of this track is just astonishing. Massive tribal drums inject this reverberating banger with a gigantic beat from the get-go. When jigsaw guitars and singer Chelsea Ray‘s voodoo vox kick in Siouxsie and The Banshees pop up instantly in your aural imagination and when a sinistrous bass tries to take control in the final minute you’ll experience an imposing sonic finale. This is not a cover, it’s a ravishing recreation.

Inhale the energy right here…

‘White Riot’ by THE CLASH

On 18 March 1977, forty-two years ago today, legendary gang THE CLASH released their debut single WHITE RIOT. An angry and timeless punk anthem. This dynamite outburst was inspired by riots in August 1976 in London’s Notting Hill Gate area involving Jamaican residents and the police after continuous tensions due to racist policing. Joe Strummer
and Paul Simonon were present that day and participated in the fights, sympathizing with the black locals’ cause. With ‘White Riot‘ the late, great Strummer wanted to encourage also white people who felt abused and oppressed by the government to come out and protest. ‘White Riot‘ only reached #38 at the time it came out but got his classic status over the following years. B-side: ‘1977’. Time to, scream out loud, folks…

White riot – I want to riot
White riot – a riot of my own
White riot – I want to riot
White riot – a riot of my own

Quote Of The Day – Here’s THE WHO’s Hypocrite ROGER DALTREY…

(pic: FB Who)

Has-been billionaire rock star Roger Daltrey once sang about the problems of his generation but he doesn’t give a flying fuck about today’s young UK generation whose majority voted to remain in the EU, as he proved once more again with some crap quotes about Brexit. He used to be a great singer but he also was always a terribly narrow-minded person. He and his now entirely meaningless and money-greedy band The Who were also slammed recently – again – by fans for charging scandalous entrance prices to see them play. To return to the subject, Daltrey has no clue at all what the EU is even about. He’s just a sickly rich and old spoiled grumpy man who doesn’t care whatsoever about what the future British generation thinks and wants. Here’s some of his recent baloney…
