Heartbreaker In Both Sound And Vision – ‘I PROMISE’ By RADIOHEAD

Lullabies from the sandman

Five years ago OK COMPUTER turned 20 (so yes, next month it’s 25). To celebrate the occasion RADIOHEAD released a special anniversary edition of their masterpiece called OKNOTOK featuring three previously unreleased tracks recorded during the OK sessions.

One of them is the supreme ballad titled I PROMISE.

A heartbreaker that sends shivers down your spine, in sound and vision.

Listen/watch

I won’t run away no more, I promise
Even when I get bored, I promise
Even when you lock me out, I promise
I say my prayers every night, I promise

I don’t wish that I’m strict, I promise
The tantrums and the chilling chats, I promise
Even when the ship is wrecked, I promise
Tie me to the rotten deck, I promise

I won’t run away no more, I promise
Even when I get bored, I promise
Even when the ship is wrecked, I promise
Tie me to the rotten deck, I promise

I won’t fool around no more, I promise
Even when I get bored, I promise
Even when you lock me out, I promise
I say my prayers every night, I promise
I won’t fool around no more, I promise

I won’t run away no more, I promise

Waking Up With… With THE STONES On A Cool Roll Back In 1971

Works faster than caffeine

This enrapturing live version of Dead Flowers from their
classic 1971 LP Sticky Fingers, was filmed in the legendary
Marquee Club in London the same year.

The Glimmer Twins upfront, Charlie Watts being Mister Cool,
Bill Wyman
as usual in the back, but Mick Taylor steals the
show with his magical guitar play.

It’s only rock ‘n’ roll…

See you in Brussels, imperishable motherrockers…

Last February British day/night dreamers SEA POWER released their
8th longplayer titled Everything Was Forever. An instant pop classic
to my ears with foggy ballad LAKELAND ECHO as one of the many
highlights. Enjoy below.

Turn the tape on
That’s a grand track
That’s a good one
I think I’ve heard enough

Heard enough of nothing
Better make the bed up
Better start laughing
Better get the sun hats
It’s not for everyone

We went to the river
Down by the old canal
We went to deliver
The Lakeland Echo
Ce n’est pas la musique

Better get the sun hats
Better start laughing
It’s not for everyone
It’s not for everyone
It’s not for everyone

Listen/watch and dream here..

Night Lullaby… THE BOSS With A Melancholic Pearl

Time to go to bed

19 April 2022

The Boss is an expert in writing lullabies for the midnight hours,
for heart and soul. Like this melancholic pearl called One Minute
You’re Here
from his latest album Letter To You (2020).

Big black train comin’ down the track
Blow your whistle long and long
One minute you’re here
Next minute you’re gone

I lay my penny down on the rails
As the summer wind sings its last song
One minute you’re here
Next minute you’re gone

Baby baby baby
I’m so alone
Baby baby baby
I’m coming home

Goodnight, folks…

‘The Last Goodbye’ by THE KILLS

It’s the last goodbye I swear
I can’t rely on a dime a day love that don’t go anywhere
I learn to cry for someone else
I can’t get by on an odds and ends love that don’t ever match up
I heard all you said and I took it to heart

I won’t forget I swear
I have no regrets for the past is behind me
Tomorrow reminds me just where

Can’t quite see the end
How can I rely on my heart if I break it with my own two hands?
I heard all you said and I love you to death
I heard all you said don’t say anything

It’s the last goodbye I swear
I can’t survive on a half-hearted love that will never be whole

Psychedelic Passion With THE LANCASTERS – Hear Their New Petrifying Love Song ‘GOODNIGHT’

Daily electricity to load your batteries…

18 May 2021

Band: THE LANCASTERS
Who: A band from Italy capable to come up with something of their own,
yet to follow the footsteps of influential acts such as The Rolling Stones,
Led Zeppelin, Pond, T Rex and Black Sabbath.

New single: GOODNIGHT
About: “This is a hymn about two souls far apart and the forces that keep them
together despite everything; their true desire and love create the strongest bond
that holds them together and in balance. It’s a melancholic message of hope: the
darker the night gets, the more the light will shine when we see the dawn rise.”

says the band.

Score: An ongoing chainsaw riff comes and goes like a scary ghost in your worst nightmare, pushing this pitch-black ripper slowly but surely towards a hair-raising
finale. This scorching psych jam moves and grooves like a vicious serpent on a
destructive mission. But don’t be afraid, you’re not alone wails the vocalist with
petrifying passion in the bone-chilling chorus. Soulmates never leave each other
alone. ‘Goodnight’ is the most demonic love song I heard in ages.

Enter the darkness…

London’s DRY CLEANING Drops Second Ace Single From Upcoming EP – Here’s ‘GOODNIGHT’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

7 August 2019

Band: DRY CLEANING

Who: A fresh intriguing London based quartet ready to make their mark which was obviously clear when they dropped their debut single ‘Magic Of Meghan’ last month

Track: GOODNIGHT – the second single from their upcoming EP – “a song, partly about feeling fed up with YouTube ads suggesting that we ought to work harder, and that our relationships might fail and partly about feeling uplifted by openness on the internet.”

Score: What you get is a both nervously pushed and weirdly magnetizing stream of electricity driven by an intensive rhythm section developing a punchy pace, fueled with wayward guitars riffs and the pithy spoken word performance of singer Florence Shaw on top of it all. Pretty special sonority, pretty special band for the near future. Catch their drift right here…
