Friday's Playlist: Gibberish Songs

This Friday's Playlist compiles a few songs that are sung in made-up languages (Kobaïan, Loxian, Klokochazian...) or just straight-up gibberish.

Friday's Playlist: Psycho Killer

This Friday's Playlist asks the question: Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce que c'est? The answer surely is in one of these songs.

Genesis @ La Défense Arena, Nanterre - March 16th, 2022

Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford had put Genesis to rest fifteen years ago after their last reunion trek, and many of us assumed this was the end of the band. Collins' health issues made it seem unlikely that they would ever play again, let alone embark on a world tour and present an entire 2-hour concert. But right before the pandemic hit, it was announced that the core trio, now starting to really ressemble their Spitting Image puppets from the Land of Confusion video, would be resurrecting the stadium prog-pop behemoth for one last jaunt around the globe. Understandably, the endeavor was postponed, but it is now time for them to grace our shores with two concerts in Paris (well, Nanterre technically... close enough) and for their legions of fans to pay one last tribute to the group.

Friday's Playlist: Celtic Rock

This Friday's playlist is a quick overview of bands that brought the traditional celt heritage into rock music. Some of them, like the Chieftains, actually contain very little to no rock instrumentation and are purely traditional musicians, but they were very important to the form which is why they're included here.

Sylvaine @ Nouveau Casino, Paris - March 2nd, 2022

After a rather prolific autumn, things had quieted down on the live music front due to a rebound in COVID numbers. Many international tours got postposed, some for the third or fourth time, and some were even outright cancelled. Aerosmith, for example, was unfortunately in that second category. But three months into the new year, as the pandemic finally seems to be winding down somewhat in our neck of the woods, we are finally back in a concert hall to attend our first gig of 2022.
