Ο Steve Hillage εκτοξεύει το τραγούδι του Donovan στο υπερδιάστημα.
Η πορεία του κιθαρίστα – συνθέτη, από τo blues ξεκίνημα και τη σκηνή του Canterbury, μέχρι τη δουλειά του ως παραγωγού στα ’80s [έξοχο δείγμα της το άλμπουμ New Gold Dream των Simple Minds] και την εμπλοκή του με τη rave σκηνή των ’90s και εντεύθεν [System 7] τον καθιστά ζωντανή ιστορία της εναλλακτικής ποπ κουλτούρας. Total respect.

Steve Hillage sends Donovan‘s song to hyper-space. The guitarist-songwriter’s career, from the blues beginnings and the Canterbury scene, to his work as a producer in the ’80s [exquisite sample of which is Simple Minds’ New Gold Dream album] and his involvement with the rave scene of the’ 90s [System 7] makes him a living history of alternative pop culture. Total respect.

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need Translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
