Fields Of The nephilim : Power Ep 1986



Of all the bands involved in Britain's goth rock movement of the 1980s, Fields of the Nephilim were the most believable. The group's cryptic, occult-inspired songs were sung in a guttural roar by vocalist Carl McCoy.

Live appearances were shrouded with dim light and smoke machines, while bandmembers stalked the stagein black desperado gear inspired by western dress. The group was also one of the longest lived of the original goth rock groups, finally breaking up in 1991 when McCoy left for another project. Fields of the Nephilim formed in 1984, in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, with an original lineup of McCoy, guitarist Paul Wright, his brother Nod on drums, saxophonist Gary Whisker, and bassist Tony Pettitt.
The quintet played many live shows and released the EP Burning the Fields in late 1984. Whisker then left the band, just as Peter Yates was added as a second guitarist. Beggar's Banquet, also the home of goth rockers Southern Death Cult and Bauhaus, signed the Nephilim and released the singles "Power" and "Preacher Man" in 1986.

Both did well on the independent charts; "Preacher Man" made it to number two, increasing the expectation for debut album Dawnrazor, which appeared in 1987. The album also did well on the indie charts, but later that year Fields of the Nephilim finally cracked the pop singles chart with "Blue Water."
In June 1988, second album The Nephilim reached number 12 in the pop charts, while the single "Moonchild" made number 28. A live video titled Forever Remain was also released in 1988.




The May 1989 single "Psychonaut" also cracked the Top 40, but the resulting Elizium (1990) proved to be the group's last studio effort. The live double album Earth Inferno was also released in 1990, and the singles "For Her Light" and "Sumerland (Dreamed)" both charted, but Carl McCoy left the band and took the name with him in October 1991. 
          

Remaining members Yates, Pettitt, and the Wright brothers added vocalist Alan Delaney and released What Starts, Ends (1992) as Rubicon; McCoy formed Nefilim, and began releasing material, including the 1996 album Zoon. Beggar's Banquet issued a two-disc retrospective in 1994 titled Revelations.

Nothing was heard from the band until 2002 when Fallen appeared. Although the album looked new, it was a collection of outtakes released without the permission of the band. They truly returned in 2006 with Mourning Sun, and played live often during the 2000s and 2010s. Studio recording took place during 2014, and the band shared a pair of singles "Earthbound" and "Prophecy" for an album with the working title The Darkness Before Dawn.

Οσα Ναυάγια

ΟΣΑ ΝΑΥΑΓΙΑ

Ρηχά νερά είν' ο δικός μου ο καημός
πως ν' αρμενίσει ο εργένης στεναγμός ;
βράχια σπαρμένη η δική σου η ζωή
πως να σαλπάρει της αγάπης το σκαρί ;

" Όσα ναυάγια ,
  Ζωή μου έχεις δώσει
  κι όσες αγάπες που γοργόνες τις θρηνούν
  τόσα τα θαύματα
  καρδιά μου που'χω νιώσει
  στο όνομά σου
  που τα χείλη μου καλούν "

Ψάχνω ένα φάρο στης αγάπης τον αφρό
να μη τσακίσω και σα πλοίο να βυθιστώ
φτιάχνω τραγούδια να σου λέν' πως στη Ζωή
όσο χτυπάει η καρδιά πάντα μπορεί .

Ρηχά νερά είν' ο δικός μου ο καημός
πως ν' αρμενίσει ο εργένης στεναγμός ;

Little Shop Of Horrors - Original Soundtrack 1986


A nerdy florist finds his chance for success and romance with the help of a giant man-eating plant who demands to be fed.
Director: Frank Oz
Writers: Howard Ashman (screenplay), Howard Ashman (based on the musical play "Little Shop of Horrors")
Stars: Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene, Vincent Gardenia
Little Shop of Horrors is a 1986 American rock musical horror comedy film directed by Frank Oz. It is a film adaptation of the off-Broadway musical comedy of the same name by composer Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman about a nerdy florist shop worker who raises a vicious, raunchy plant that feeds on human blood. Menken and Ashman's Off-Broadway musical was based on the low-budget 1960 film The Little Shop of Horrors, directed by Roger Corman.

The 1986 film stars Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene, Vincent Gardenia, Steve Martin, and Levi Stubbs as the voice of Audrey II. The film also featured special appearances by James Belushi, John Candy, Christopher Guest, and Bill Murray. It was produced by David Geffen through The Geffen Company and released by Warner Bros. on December 19, 1986.

Levi Stubbs (born Levi Stubbles, June 6, 1936 – October 17, 2008) was an American baritone singer, best known as the lead vocalist of the R&B group the Four Tops, a group known for a variety of Motown hit records and other songs created in the 1960s and 1970s. He has been noted by writers for his emotional, often dramatic, style of singing.
This picture was nominated for 2 Oscars. Another 2 wins & 12 nominations.

In 1978 Alan Menken and Howard Ashman created a new musical take on Roger Corman's 1960 film Little Shop Of Horrors, which became a Broadway hit. Both involve a man-eating, Venus flytrap-inspired plant named Audrey II, named Audrey II, raised in a skid-row flower shop into a massive beast with excessive chloroplast (testosterone?) levels.
Though the film was inventive and campy, Menken and Ashman's music music - a mix of doo-wop and lavish songs along the lines of Rocky Horror Picture Show -- made the show's fun hilarious, its thrills outrageously gruesome. The soundtrack to Frank Oz's 1987 film adaptation carries on the musical's spirit: Steve Martin's rendition of "Dentist," about a demented psychopath who drills mouths (not just teeth) without novocaine, is achingly funny.

"Downtown" is a full-powered choir of the slums; Rick Moranis works for an uptight flower shop manager ("He took me in, gave me shelter, a bed, crust of bread and a job, treats me like dirt and calls me a slob, which I am.") Martin and Moranis' sincere if limited singing is charming, and Ellen Greene returns as the original Audrey from the Broadway version; the way she belts out earth-shakingly high notes is bewildering, particularly on the lovely duet with Moranis, "Suddenly Seymour."

The Four Tops' Levi Stubbs is a scene-stealer as Audrey II, particularly on the new track, the raunchy, boisterous finale "Mean Green Mother From Outer Space"; since film nominations must be new songs, it was added in hopes of an Academy Award (and did indeed receive a nomination.) When Disney added a tribute to Howard Ashman on the Beauty and the Beast credits after his death in 1992, it read: "To Ashman who gave a Mermaid her voice and a Beast his soul." He also gave a plant its appetite.

Cast

Rick Moranis as Seymour Krelborn, a nerdy florist who loves "strange and interesting" plants. He has good intentions, but is easy influenced: the plant, Audrey II, tricks him into feeding it humans.

Λαιστρυγόνες




ΛΑΙΣΤΡΥΓΟΝΕΣ 

Αθεράπευτα πιστός , στο δρόμο μου κάνοντας τα ίδια λάθη
θα γκρεμοτσακιστώ για μια νέα ζωή ,
χρόνο δεν έχει η σιωπή , χώρο να διαβεί
κι όμως βυθίζομαι πάντα στα ίδια πάθη .

Έξω από τα "Ναι" και τα "Όχι" σας ,
Δε με ενδιαφέρουν εξάλλου
Μέσα στα "Θέλω" και τα "Μη" που έγιναν δικά μου
Θα παραμένω κάπου αλλού στο θόρυβο κάποιου άλλου .

Έχω αστείρευτη καρδιά , γεμάτη , δε πεθαίνω
Θεός και δαίμονας γεννήθηκα
μα ξέρω που πηγαίνω
το παραμύθι το έζησα και θα το ζω , Ανασαίνω .

Και εάν ακούσω μια ευχή να 'ρθει να μ΄ αγκαλιάσει
του Καββαδία ο κρυφός αστερισμός ας έρθει να με σκεπάσει .
Εκεί στα άσπρα κύματα που ζούνε οι γοργόνες
εκεί που δεν έχει "Πουθενά" και ζουν οι Λαιστρυγόνες .

Κι εκεί στο μαύρο "Τίποτα" να'ρθεις να μ'αγαπήσεις
Βάψε κόκκινο το μέλλον σου γιατί θα με μισήσεις .
Πάρε μαζί σου μια ευχή και άκουσε τη μπάντα
να παίζουν τα τραγούδια μου , θα σ΄"Αγαπώ" γιά Πάντα .

Όσα ταξίδια έζησα και όνειρα αν είχα
κοίταξα μόνο στις ακτές στου έρωτα την ψίχα
κάπου στο δρόμο το στενό θα βρω τι έχω χάσει
κι ας έρθουν θύμησες παλιές να πουν "Σε'χω Ξεχάσει" .

Αθεράπευτα Πιστός !!!

The Saints : Howling 1996

Howling is the ninth studio album released by The Saints. 1996 .
Chris Bailey is the co-founder and singer of rock band The Saints. He was born in Nanyuki, Kenya in 1957 to Irish parents. Bailey grew up in Belfast, Northern Ireland until the age of seven, when his family emigrated to Australia. The Saints were formed in Australia in 1974. Their first hit was in the UK with the classic punk anthem "(I'm) Stranded". The band slowly evolved toward a more sophisticated sound on their next few albums.

The album was their first release after an eight-year recording hiatus. This time Chris Bailey chose to lose the big production of the 1980s records to make an album that was more akin to the early Saints punk sound. However, instead of teaming up with the original members Bailey again employed a new line-up for the band, making this The Saints Mark III.

The album was released to mixed reviews in mid 1996 in Australia and in 1997 everywhere else in the world.
Also, unlike the 1979-1988 Saints, Bailey here eschews his old mates for an new lineup, making this Saints Mach III. The results are mixed, especially at first, but at their best are crackling and exciting. And with repeated listens, Bailey's knack for a well-developed, melodic tune is revealed, as are a couple of thunderous, paranoid, wild, and totally cracked songs that sound like Bailey has turned psychopathic. Three acoustic-based tracks are also a good touch, revisiting the sumptuous territory of Savage Entertainment and 54 Days.

Besides, any record that makes Bailey howl as of old, unlike his '90s solo work, is bound to have one revelatory moment after another, reminding one of the explosive voice that once bellowed and yowled its way through such intense heart-pounders as "(I'm) Stranded," "This Perfect Day," "Know Your Product," "Casablanca," "Ghost Ships," and "Just Like Fire Would."

HOWLING LYRICS

Get the fuck out
The elements were howling
Moses on the mountain slept
he hadn't got the message yet
and I didn't want to be the one to wake him up
so fatten up the sacred cows
let's get the butchers to do their stuff
so sharpen up the forks and knives
get ready for the sacrifice.

I want the godless gift of paradise,
I want to feel you deep inside.
Wild and weirdly the black cat's moan
give me the voodoo that I want.

Me.......I want to go howling, howling at the moon
I want to go prowling where I don't belong.
Because I've got my eyes on you
and I know that you want me too
you make me feel alright
going to keep it up all night.

Cinderella in the whorehouse wept
next to the bed in which I slept
I slipped it out at quarter past twelve
she had to leave she couldn't help herself
just like me she had to go howling

SHADOWS LYRICS

The bomb has dropped, its metal touch
smashes through the senses
god appears then disappears
he's nervous and defensive
his loving cup has been fucked up
it's smashed and broken on the floor
a mongel horde crash through he door
to add to the confusion.

Today I'm lost I drift across
the fields of imagination
subject to a point of view
dark and pessimistic
from bad to worse it's like a curse
somethings gone wrong with the master plan
and looking back I can see the crack
through which I have fallen.

Oh well it doesn't matter
it's only changes
changes aren't always dangerous
they're just contagious.

I'm doing time in the shadows
and I'm feeling fine it doesn't matter
because intelligence is out of luck
I better find myself another look
you could have read me like an open book
but something tells me you won't even look.

The carnival was yesterday
I see the clowns rejected,
performing tricks out on the street
I paint my face and join the line
the riot squad is standing by
and no one is escaping
my hands are tied my mind is numb

Στα 70΄ς - Πειρατικοί Ραδιοσταθμοί

Μέσα δεκαετίας του 70 . Λίγο πριν και λίγο μετά τη χούντα .
Δύσκολα χρόνια , δύσκολοι καιροί γιά τους Ροκάδες . Πειρατικοί ραδιοσταθμοί , μακριά μαλλιά , τα πρώτα σκουλαρίκια σε άντρες ( Μπάτσοι : Πούστηδες είστε ρε και φοράτε σκουλαρίκια ; ) , αμέτρητες ώρες στα αστυνομικά τμήματα , τσαμπουκάδες με τους καρεκλάδες , πολύ ξύλο και πειρατικοί ραδιοσταθμοί στα μεσαία κύματα .

Ώρες ολόκληρες στο δισκάδικο "Η Στροφή Μανάκου" γιά να βρούμε κάποιο ακυκλοφόρητο άλμπουμ ώστε να το παρουσιάσουμε πρώτοι στο ραδιόφωνο : Cockney Rebel , Strawbs , Manfrend Mann's Earth Band , Eloy .
Συγκροτήματα που δεν κυκλοφορούσαν από Ελληνικές εταιρείες και διψούσαμε να τα μοιραστούμε με τους ομοϊδεάτες μας .

Τρία είδη πειρατών υπήρχαν τότε .

1. Οι Ροκάδες .

Ο Παναγιώτης ο "Tsarly" από το Νέο Ηράκλειο , ο αείμνηστος Κώστας ο "Tommy" από Παπάγου , εγώ ο "Black Spider" ή "Bugs Bunny" από Χαλάνδρι , ο Νίκος ο "Trip" από το Χαλάνδρι , ο Γιώργος ο "Galagher" από Παπάγου , ο Νίκος ¨Ζ 13" από Αγία Παρασκευή , ο αείμνηστος Γιώργος "Woodstock" από Χαλάνδρι , ο Παναγιώτης "Α 1" από Αγία Παρασκευή , ο Μίμης ο "Nektar" από Παπάγου κι αυτός εάν θυμάμαι καλά και πολλοί άλλοι .

Φίλοι που ξεθώριασαν , φίλοι που χάθηκαν μέσα στη λήθη του χρόνου .

2. Οι Σκυλάδες .
"Ράδιο Ολύμπια" . Χαλάνδρι . Ένα βλαχαδερό που εξέπεμπε τρία τετράγωνα από το σπίτι μου και εκτός από τα σκυλάδικα που έπαιζε είχε και μια κασέτα με τους Olympians . Δύο - τρεις κασέτες είχε όλες κι όλες κι έπαιζε τα ίδια και τα ίδια .
Υπήρχαν και δυό τρεις που έπαιζαν σκυλάδικα δίχως να μιλούν και έβαζαν διαφημίσεις γιά οικόπεδα . Παραθαλάσσια !
Εμείς γιά να τους τη σπάσουμε λέγαμε διάφορα , όπως : ( Παραθαλάσσια οικόπεδα , 30 χλμ από τη θάλασσα δίπλα στο κύμα - Επίσκεψη με μπουλντόζα - Τρεχούμενο νερό Καματερού - Προσγείωση με αλεξίπτωτο )

3. Οι Καρεκλάδες .

Ένας ήταν ο Super Star Καρεκλάδικος σταθμός της εποχής . Ο "Jeronιmo Groovy" . Τον μισούσαμε όλοι ! Είχε κάποιο υπουργό γιά θείο , μεγάλο μηχάνημα και δεν τον πείραζε κανείς . Εμάς μας κυνηγούσαν αλύπητα . Ορισμένες ώρες της ημέρας , όλοι εμείς οι Ροκάδες δίναμε ραντεβού , πέφταμε πάνω στη συχνότητά του , του ρίχναμε τη λεγόμενη " ΤΑΠΑ ¨ και δεν ακουγόταν ούτε στο σπίτι του .

Ότι κι αν γινόταν το 70 είχε μιά αθώα επαναστατικότητα και μία ελκυστική αναζήτηση γιά κάτι το διαφορετικό , έξω από τις μάζες και τα πρότυπα ,'έξω από τους κανόνες και τα "Πρέπει" .
Αυτά τα "Πρέπει" τους δε χωρούσαν στο μυαλό μας . Τα είχαμε απορρίψει προ πολλού .
Εκείνες τις εποχές είχα πλήρη άγνοια κινδύνου .
Τώρα με τρομάζουν τα ΠΑΝΤΑ !!!
Με τρομάζει το Μέλλον .
Όχι αυτό το δικό μου .
Εκείνο των νέων παιδιών !!!
NO FUTURE .
