Rosko Gee & the Hooded Ones - My Name Is Fear


















Rosko Gee & the Hooded Ones - My Name Is Fear - 2016

The former bassist of the legendary bands Traffic, Can, or the Johnny Nash band, who worked with stars such as Marianne Faithfull, Al Di Meola, Steve Winwood, Phil Collins, Jaki Liebezeit or even Ozzy Osbourne, now finally dares to step forward, out out of the shadows, into the spotlight.
ROSKO GEE & THE HOODED ONES are highly experienced musicians who create together a mixture of jazz, pop and soul music, garnished with influences from modern classical, world music, culminating with elements of the avantgarde.

Whenever you think you may have finally discovered the category in which the band fits, you’re surprised anew. There is no real definition, not a genre a draw or a compartment to categorize - most likely an elective affinity in expressionism is recognizable. To say it with Adorno: the music finds its ideal in the immediacy of their expression, in their recording of the soul - "music is therapy!".
Rosko Gee, the musician with Jamaican roots, we know from his time as bassist of the german Harald Schmidt Latenight-Showband writes lyrics that are sustainable. Candid and poetic the charismatic singer, graceful, sensitive and effective intoned poetic lines, equipped at the same time with a highly valued recognizable voice.

The album "MY NAME IS FEAR", which was released in April 2016 by the Independent Label perfectzeromusic proves impressively the Latitude of the band and the perfection of the interaction between the musicians. Whether jazzy numbers like "Smile Back On Your Face" or "My Little Girls", the powerful, almost rocking "Love You Crave", or the sensitive measured psycho-trip "Xochitepec" - "MY NAME IS FEAR" convinces with each and every note
.
When asked what music meant to him, Rosko replied: "Music is a therapy. Music is always there when people are in need. That's what it's there for. That's why it's always been there."
It is time for this new form of therapy session! See ROSKO GEE & THE HOODED ONES live and experience the incredible power and the delightful passion of this extraordinary band.

Pink Floyd - They Came In Peace, live, Leeds University 1970 Washington University 1971



















Pink Floyd - They Came In Peace, live, Leeds University 1970 Washington University 1971 - 2021

Legendary rock band Pink Floyd has quietly released a treasure trove of 12 live albums on streaming services. The band hasn’t publicly commented on the recordings, all of which document its early ‘70s golden age period.

On Dec. 10, a commenter on a Pink Floyd fan site first posted about the recordings being dropped. All of the albums boast a copyright of Pink Floyd Music Ltd. It’s possible the British band is taking a similar strategy from artists like the Beach Boys, Beatles, and Bob Dylan - all of whom have issued collections as a form of copyright protection, adhering to a 2011 change in European law.

A rep for Sony told Rolling Stone back in 2013, “The copyright law in Europe was recently extended from 50 to 70 years for everything recorded in 1963 and beyond. With everything before that, there's a new 'Use It or Lose It' provision. It basically said, 'If you haven't used the recordings in the first 50 years, you aren't going to get any more.’”

To give an example of the provision: in 2012, Bob Dylan released a collection of limited-edition outtakes from 1962. If he had waited to release the collection, his recordings would have become public domain. Therefore, Dylan's label pressed roughly 100 copies and distributed them to stores in France, Germany, Sweden, and the U.K.

Pink Floyd likely released the EP 1965: Their First Recordings in 2015 because of the "Use It or Lose It" provision as well. The recordings later resurfaced in the band’s Early Years box set.

All of the concerts from Pink Floyd's new live albums occurred between 1970 and 1972. During that period, the band released: Atom Heart Mother (1970), Meddle (1971), and Obscured by Clouds (1972). Since the band began playing songs from Dark Side of the Moon prior to its release, one recording - a March 1972 Tokyo gig - features a near-complete performance of that LP in sequence.
