Ian McLagan And The Bump Band - United States

Ian McLagan And The Bump Band - United States - 2014

Dia 17/06 foi lançado o primeiro álbum de estúdio em cinco anos, via Yep Roc Records, de Ian McLagan. "United States" é também o primeiro a sair do forno depois de sua entrada no "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame" como membro dos Faces. É um belo disco, onde Ian deixa parte de suas tristezas tão presentes no disco de 2009, "Never Say Never", feito logo após a perda da esposa e e traz canções mais alegres, mais próximas dos seus primeiros discos solos. São 10 faixas - todas originais - e trazem McLagan (vocais, guitarra e teclados) junto a seus colaboradores da Bump Band ’Scrappy’ Jud Newcomb, Jon Notarthomas e Conrad Choucroun. Apareceu pra dar uma força Leigh Mahoney (David Byrne) no violino.

O álbum foi gravado e produzido no estúdio de sua propriedade no Texas e a mixagem ficou a cargo de ningúem menos que Glyn Johns (The Who e The Faces, entre muitos e muitos) e a masterização correu a cargo de Bob Ludwig, que traz em seu currículo pérolas dos Stones e do Zeppelin.

01. All I Wanna Do
02. Pure Gold
03. Don’t Say Nothing
04. I’m Your Baby Now
05. Mean Old World

Pat McManus - Live And In Time (Re-Re-POST)

Pat McManus - Live And In Time - 2009

Patrick Frances McManus was one of 6 children born into an incredibly talented musical family in Derrylin, Co.Fermangh, N.Ireland. Pat’s father, John, and his mother Valerie were highly accomplished Traditional Irish music players, so it wasn’t long before Pat and his two brothers, John and Tommy, were picking up all the instruments lying around the house and learning to play. By the age of 7, Pat had already performed on live T.V. and by 14 he was All-Ireland Fiddle Champion. Aged 20, Pat somehow stumbled across a band called Horslips. As Horslips were a Celtic rock band, the 3 brothers could relate to their music and quickly became big fans and later attended so many gigs that they formed a friendship with the guys in the band. The brothers soon swapped their Fiddles, Uilleann Pipes and Bodhrans for electric instruments and formed their first band called - Pulse, with Pat on Guitar, John on Bass & Vocals and Tommy (who was only 12 at the time) on drums. During an interview with Radio Luxembourg , Dj – Tony Prince, who remarked how young they all were, jokingly called them Mamas Boys - the boys changed their name. It was just meant to be an ‘of the cuff’ remark but the name stuck and soon the 3 brothers were officially known as Mamas Boys........... READ MORE HERE
