Barclay James Harvest : Baby James Harvest 1972


The group was formed in September of 1966 in Oldham, Lancashire. Lees and Wolstenholme were classmates who played together in a band called the Blues Keepers; that group soon merged with a band called the Wickeds, which included Holroyd and Pritchard.
They became Barclay James Harvest in June of 1967 and began rehearsing at an 18th century farmhouse in Lancashire.

The psychedelic era was in full swing, and the era of progressive rock about to begin -- the Moody Blues, in particular, were beginning to cut an international swathe across the music world. BJH cut a series of demos
In April they issued their first single, a folky, faux-classical song called "Early Morning." The group got caught up a year later in a corporate change at EMI, and it was decided to move the more progressive-sounding groups on the label onto a new label, coincidentally named Harvest. Their first release on the new label was the single "Brother Thrush."

The band recorded two more albums for Harvest,"Short Stories" (1971) and 'Baby James Harvest" (1972), and spent much of 1972 on the road, including an unsuccessful tour of the U.S. They also released a pair of singles, "When the City Sleeps" and "Breathless," under the pseudonym "Bombadil" (a name taken from a J.R.R. Tolkien short story), all to no avail. 1973 saw them part company with EMI after one last single, "Rock and Roll Woman."

It seemed at first as though BJH was locked once again into a cycle of failure. Finally, in late 1974, their double-album "Barclay James Harvest Live" broke through to the public -- the group was rewarded with a Top 40 placement in England and more sales activity on the European continent than they'd previously seen.

A year later, "Octoberon" reached the Top 20.
In 1977, they released "Gone to Earth", their most accomplished album to date, and by the end of the year the group found themselves playing to arena-sized audiences.
Their 1979 album "Eyes of the Universe" was a modest hit in England, but its release marked a flashpoint in Barclay James Harvest's career in continental Europe, especially Germany; on August 30, 1980, the band performed a free concert in front of nearly 200,000 people at the Reichstag in Berlin, which was filmed and recorded. A subsequent live album, Concert for the People, became the group's biggest-selling album in England, rising to number 15 in 1982.
"Turn of the Tide" (1981) and "Ring of Changes" (1983) were less successful, although the latter did spawn their last charting single, "Just a Day Away." Their subsequent Polydor albums, Victims of Circumstance, Face to Face, and Welcome to the Show, charted ever lower in England, even as the group's popularity grew in Europe. In 1988, they released a new live album, "Glasnost", cut at a concert in East Berlin.The group marked the 25th anniversary with a concert in Liverpool, and toured to support a British Polydor compilation, "The Best of Barclay James Harvest".

SUMMER SOLDIER LYRICS

I feel sorry for the soldier who is shot and stoned in anger
I feel sorry for his wife and child at home
I feel sorry for the bomber who all life and limb dishonours
For the people that he's maimed and left alone
The Lord God said love thy neighbour
Though in human life he trades, he's still a man
I feel sorry for the children who with open mind are willing
To fight for ideals aged and past their time
I feel sorry for the children who will join the vicious circle
Of instinct fear bred from their parents' minds
The Lord God said love thy neighbour
Break the circle, free the hater, call him a friend

Wake up, wake up, there's a man by your side
With a knife and a gun in each hand
Wake up, wake up, you're one and the same
It's time to stop and decide

Γουστάρω Να Είμαι Βλάκας !

Βλέπω το πρωτογενές πλεόνασμα . Τρέχει από τα μπατζάκια μου .
Ο Σαμαράς σκίζει μνημόνια κάθε μέρα . Μου σκίζει τον πάτο !
Περνάω καλά ! Ψηφίζω καλά .
Είμαι όμορφος ΕΛΛΗΝΑΣ !
Στη βουλή τους μου τα χώνουν και γουστάρω . Επιλογή μου είναι .
Και τους Χρυσαυγίτες θα κάνω Κομματάρα , ( Αυτά τα Σκατά ) μέσα στο μπουρδέλο που επέλεξα να με κυβερνά .

Είμαι όμορφος ΕΛΛΗΝΑΣ !
Είμαι στον καναπέ και βλέπω τις ειδήσεις παρέα με τον Πρετεντέρη . Είμαι καλά ! Μου πλένουν το μυαλό , αποχαυνώνομαι , αυνανίζομαι στα τσοντοσάιντς του "You Porn " , δε διαβάζω βιβλία , δε γνωρίζω τον Ελύτη , ο Καβάφης μάλλον έγραψε έναν τσελεμεντέ για Gay Συνταγές Μαγειρικής .

ΣΥΝΟΡΑ

 

ΚΛΕΙΣΤΕ ΤΙΣ ΠΟΡΤΕΣ

Η νύχτα ξεσπαθώνει ,
οικοδέσποινα στο στειρωμένο , μωρό Νου
κάταχνο της ποίησης σύννεφο υφαίνει .

Κανείς δεν ανασαίνει .

Μονάχα μία θέα από πνιγμένα στόματα .
Μονάχα μιά βοή από μανιασμένα ποδοβολητά - Σκέψεις .
Και ... οι στίχοι σαλεύουν ορθωμένοι
στους ξέφρενους χορούς μιάς άδηλης φωτιάς .

ΚΛΕΙΣΤΕ ΤΙΣ ΠΟΡΤΕΣ 

Στις θερισμένες στιγμές της πυκνότερης ομίχλης .
Εκείνης που τις αναμνήσεις μας καλύπτει .
Στα καρφωμένα βλέμματα των αδαών
στη σήψη των κουρασμένων εραστών
στη μονοτονία κεραυνόπληκτων μουρμουρητών .

Ο φόβος για το μέλλον τσακίζεται
στην κορυφή της μυστικής πυραμίδας
στεγάζοντας με ημέρες παράξενες
τους έξαλλους κόσμους της παραφροσύνης μας .

ΚΛΕΙΣΤΕ ΤΙΣ ΠΟΡΤΕΣ 


Στην πλήρη άγνοια
από τις αστέρινες αβύσσους που τη γύμνια μας ενδύδουν .

Στον ήχο από τις γρεμμισμένες επιμονές .
Στους κληρονόμους των αρχαίων θεμελίων .
Στους Δαίμονες μιας ψιθυριστής φήμης .

 

ΚΛΕΙΣΤΕ ΤΙΣ ΠΟΡΤΕΣ

Συνεχίστε τις θολωμένες αποκαλύψεις
ξεστομίζοντας τη διαδικασία
αμείωτων συναισθημάτων .

Η Νύχτα κερδίζει ακόμη .

Μπορώ να μπω στα όνειρά σου ;
Δε ζητώ τίποτα .
Μονάχα μία σταγόνα της ψυχής σου να γευθώ .
Λες κι η απαγγελία στο αποκορύφωμά της φθάνει .

Μετά από φτερόκοπο τρέξιμο
τα βράδια αναπαύονται στις λάμψεις σωριασμένων εποχών
πίσω από τα συρρικνωμένα διαστήματα φθοράς και δόξας .

Η Νύχτα κερδίζει ακόμη .

Η σάρκα η γυμνή ματτώνει
και το παλιό βαθύ πηγάδι της ανθρώπινης φρίκης
ξεχειλίζει από κατάρες .

ΚΛΕΙΣΤΕ ΤΙΣ ΠΟΡΤΕΣ  


Πόσες
μα πόσες υποσχέσεις δε θάψαμε
στα παχνογάλαζα βουνά που δεν πιστέψαμε
κολυμπώντας στις ψευδαισθήσεις λιωμένης συνήθειας ;

Στη σκληρή πετρωμένή ισχυρογνωμοσύνη μας
στην πικραμένη αδιαλλαξία
στην άτιμη και άδικη αλαζονεία μας ;

Γυρνά .
Στροβιλίζεται ο χώρος .
Ο χρόνος .
Σε ωοθήκες κοσμικής Γέννεσης
σωριάζει παιχνίδια απόλαυσης για μια στιγμή
... Κι ύστερα χάνεται .


ΚΛΕΙΣΤΕ ΤΙΣ ΠΟΡΤΕΣ  


Το φεγγάρι σπαρταρά πάνω στο θρέμμα των Θεών
στο αναίμακτο βελούδο .
Την υστερία του τη νωχελική
στον Πατέρα Ουρανό καρφώνει  .

Αρρωστημένες ξένες μορφές , κάποτε φίλοι , κολλητοί , γυναίκες , εραστές
τώρα τίποτα , τώρα μια ανάμνηση
γδέρνουν με τρέλα επιληπτική
τον γερασμένο θόλο
μιας πνιγμένης από το δέος περιπλάνησης .

Μία αστροφεγγιά , αστρόφυλλο ψυχής
συστρέφεται , λυσσομανά , αγωνίζεται
γατζώνοντας επώδυνα τις λέξεις που απαραίτητες έγιναν
γιά το ΛΕΞΙΚΟ της γυμνής Ανθρωπότητας .


ΚΛΕΙΣΤΕ ΤΙΣ ΠΟΡΤΕΣ 

Αμφισβητώ το ζαρωμένο σβόλο του χώρου
που με τον χρόνο συνεργάζεται .
Τον πιστεύω όμως .
Συνεργός της ανθρώπινης αδυναμίας είναι .

Κύκλους κάνει .
Σαν αρπακτικό !
Γύρω από τη δύναμή μας .
Με υποταγμένους ρόλους μας προικίζει.
Τα λόγια τα χλωρά φυλάει
και τις εμπειρίες μας επισκέπτεται .
Όφις τρισκατάρατος .



ΚΛΕΙΣΤΕ ΤΙΣ ΠΟΡΤΕΣ

Επικίνδυνες είναι
Την αντοχή μας δοκιμάζουν
σε στιγμές που η θέρμη μας αγωνιά .

...Τόσα λόγια !
...Φυλαγμένα λόγια !
Ποτέ ειπωμένα .
Παράξενο δύναμης μήνυμα .
...Κι όμως !
Ίχνος τους κανένα .

Ένα φιλί μονάχα .
Γλυκό
Κόκκινο
Αναπάντεχο
που Ζωή στον σκόρπιο ουρανό φιλεύει .
Σκιρτάει , τρεμουλιάζει , αγωνιά , θρυμματίζεται
και βλασταίνει ατέρμονη Αγάπη .


ΕΚΛΕΙΣΑΝ ΟΙ ΠΟΡΤΕΣ .

...Μα , αυτό το μικρό κομμάτι Ελεύθερης σκέψης
ΔΙΚΟ ΜΟΥ ΕΙΝΑΙ .
ΔΙΚΟ ΜΟΥ !!!


Σαν πελελή ανάσα τρέχει στη ρυτιδιασμένη Γη
και σφραγίζει εκρήξεις από στίχους .

ΔΙΚΟ ΜΟΥ ΕΙΝΑΙ !!!

ΚΛΕΙΣΤΕ ΤΙΣ ΠΟΡΤΕΣ ΚΑΡΙΟΛΗΔΕΣ !!!

Tiger Lillies : Special Edition EP - Jazz & Τζαζ 2004


The Tiger Lillies were formed in 1989 and as the decades go by their sound remains one of the most unique and original things one could come across. Martyn Jacques, the band's front man, songwriter and founder, spent most of his twenties in a flat above a brothel in London's Soho, peeping through his window at the buzz of Soho’s lowlife. It took him a good ten years to turn that strange world into art, while training as a singer and songwriter. In 1989 he got his first accordion and The Tiger Lillies were formed shortly after.

With their signature blend of chanson, opera, and Gypsy music, London-based experimental rock trio the Tiger Lillies are difficult to define in one sentence.

Back in the early 90's the avant garde trio stood out immediately for its distinct sound and style and the band quickly worked its way up from London pubs to the Piccadilly Theatre and buskers’ benches to the Sydney Opera House. Soon the The Tiger Lillies were touring the world giving concerts and participating in various art and theatre projects.

The group revels in the bawdy vaudeville traditions of prostitution, opium dens, and the seedy life of the eternal street musician.

A couple of the many highlights in their career were the 2 Olivier Awards they won for the cult hit musical Shockheaded Peter and the Grammy nomination for their album The Gorey End. Within the last two decades
The Tiger Lillies have been doing an average of over 200 gigs a year and despite spending so much time on the road they have managed to also release more than one album a year (total number is somewhere around 35, but who is counting?).

They have participated in numerous shows all over the world, collaborating with artists of all disciplines: from circus performers to Shakespearean actors, experimental dancers to avant garde photographers and burlesque puppeteers to classical music ensembles.

The world of The Tiger Lillies is dark, peculiar and varied, with moments of deep sadness, cruel black humour and immense beauty. This unique "anarchic Brechtian street opera trio" tours the world playing songs about “anything that doesn’t involve beautiful blonde girls and boys running at the meadow” to quote their founder Martyn Jacques. Hence, their songs cover all the dark aspects of life, from prostitution and drug addiction to violence and despair.

Always with a touch of twisted humor and sharp irony The Tiger Lillies “point an implicit accusing finger back at us: what on Earth are we doing, laughing at this stuff?”. Their music is a mixture of pre-war Berlin cabaret, anarchic opera and gypsy music, echoing the voices of Bertolt Brecht and Jacques Brel. The Tiger Lillies shock, amuse and entertain in a postmodern vaudeville way, with their inimitable in-yer-face shows, where no limit should be taken for granted.

Maria  Lyrics


He picks you up, in his car,
He opens every orifice and scar.
Maria, Maria

He cuts you down, in your prime
You will not wither or decline.
Maria, Maria

He tortures you, he holds you down
He beats you black, blue, green and brown.
Maria, Maria

He murders you, he takes your life
For Satan, Satan, Satan's light.
Maria, Maria
Maria, Maria

He feasts on you from dusk to dawn
His knife your body will transform.
Maria, Maria

Your hair so long, your hair so brown
Now in his evil, in his evil you do drown.
Maria, Maria

He drinks your blood as holy wine,
Now in his evil you decline.
Maria, Maria
Maria, Maria

Evi Hasapidou Watson and guitarist Panos K. formed the band at the beginning of the 90s after the sparks flew between them during an audition. "I heard Evi sing" , "I was pretty much blown" away says Panos. Pretty much blown away by Panos guitar and poetry herself, Evi left the band she was in and started singing and composing with Panos.

The duo were soon joined by friends musicians and started playing live and recording their first album for Studio2 an independent Athenian label.
The album was adored by Greek and International psychedelia fans.


The band won first price in the 1996 Scype (song competition of Youth Programs in Europe) competition, hosted in Copenhagen, where bands from all European Union countries participated including the UK and Ireland. Voted by live audiences all around Europe as their favourite band and 'Over' as their favourite song, Echo Tattoo eventually landed a contract with another Athenian label, FM Records.

Their second album "Room of Toys" was recorded in Bath and London UK, produced by Bryan New and released in 1997 in Greece, Belgium, Spain and Holland with AFM FM Records European sub-label and Viva Records (subsidiary of Snuff Garrett Records).

Slaine : Pat Mills ( Designers : Paul Staples - Siku - Rafael Garres - Simon Bisley )

Slaine is a comic hero from the pages of 2000 AD – one of Britain's most popular comic books.

Slaine is a barbarian fantasy adventure series based on Celtic myths and stories which first appeared in 1983, written by Pat Mills and initially drawn by his then wife, Angela Kincaid.
Pat Mills has written comics since the early seventies.


As well as his influential role in creating and contributing to numerous of British comics, Mills has produced work in both America and Europe. In particular he is known for creating 2000 AD where he was the first editor and contributed to a number of long-running stories like ABC Warriors which has run for nearly thirty years. He was also responsible for creating The Butterfly Children series of books for children with his former wife, Angela Kincaid.

Most of the early stories were drawn by Massimo Belardinelli and Mike McMahon.
Other notable artists to have worked on the character include Glenn Fabry and Simon Bisley. The current artist is Clint Langley, whose artwork combines painting, photography and digital art.


Slaine's favourite weapon is an axe called "Brainbiter". He has the power of the "warp spasm", based on the riastrad or body-distorting battle frenzy of the Irish hero Cu Chulainn, in which earth power "warps" through his body,

Slaine and Ukko

 


turning him into a terrifying, monstrously powerful figure. He is a devotee of the earth goddess Danu.At the start of the series Slaine was a wanderer, banished from his tribe, the Sessair. He explored the Land of the Young (Irish Tir na nOg) in the company of an unscrupulous dwarf called Ukko (Finnish for "old man", and the name of the Finnish pagan Thunder god), fighting monsters and mercenaries in the fantasy tradition.


In one early adventure he rescued a maiden, Medb (named after the Irish mythological queen Medb) from being sacrificed in a Wicker Man, only to earn her enmity – she was a devotee of Crom Cruach, the god to whom she was to be sacrificed, and was looking forward to the experience.



Her master and mentor, the ancient, rotting and insane Lord Weird Slough Feg, became the series' main villain.

Following stories featured sky chariots (flying longships), dragons and prehistoric alien gods.

 As the series progressed, Slaine returned to his tribe and became king

 leading them against the Fomorians, a race of Sea Demons who were oppressing them.
Then, in the landmark storyline The Horned God, Slaine united the tribes of the earth goddess against Lord Weird Slough Feg
and his allies, while his personal devotion to the goddess led to him becoming a new incarnation of the Horned God Carnun (based on the Gaulish deity Cernunnos).





Slough Feg : The Horned God

  
By the end of the story the Land of the Young is no more, and Slaine is the first High King of Ireland.



These new enemies turned out to be a full Fomorian invasion led by Balor and the sadistic Moloch, murdering, raping and eating their way through Slaine's tribe until, wracked with warp-spasm, Slaine was able to take out Balor. The tribal council forced Slaine to let Moloch go, hoping he'd fulfill his promise of keeping the Fomorians out of Ireland


  
The tribal council forced Slaine to let Moloch go, hoping he'd fulfill his promise of keeping the Fomorians out of Ireland; instead, he deliberately returned to rape and murder Niamh.

Wanting vengeance, Slaine abdicated the throne to go to Albion and kill Moloch, which he succeeded in doing. In his absence, his son Kai left the tribe to search for his father .


Slaine also killed Dagon  , The sea monster coming from the deep .










Slaine was able to convince the tribal council that the demons could be killed and war was once more declared on the invaders, but it was clear that Ireland would be constantly attacked by wave after wave of Fomorian invasion.

Slaine hit on the idea of having the Tribe of Danu escape to the Otherworld that their Sky Chariots had been sent to, thus freeing them from the demons and allowing the Atlanteans to settle peacefully in Ireland; both armies united against Odacon and his Sea Demons.

Slaine was able to free the Atlantean leader Gael from being Odacon's Golamh by handing over Sethor to take Gael's place; and they led their armies to bolster the city of Tara.


While the tribes fought a defensive battle, Slaine was sent to the Otherworld to secure the blessings of Danu for the Tribes of the Earth Goddess to settle there; this done, he returned with her power behind him and led a charge that decimated Odacon's forces. The Tribe was cast to the Otherworld in the aftermath, and Slaine assisted Gael in finally destroying Odacon and the parasitic spawn with which he had infested the outer-lying villages.

With Gael as High King of Ireland and founder of the eventual Gaelic race, Slaine left to track down his son. He found Kai at a travelling funfair, and later embarked on a quest to track down Crom Dubh.

Main characters

SLAINE MAC ROTH : Mighty black-haired Irish warrior exiled from the Sessair tribe for having an affair with the chief's fiance Niamh. He loves fighting and often beats up Ukko. His weapon is the stone axe Brainbiter and he first experienced the Warp Spasm as a child.

   
UKKO : Slaine's dwarf sidekick and chronicler, named after the Finnish storm-god Ukko. He is lecherous and greedy; like most fantasy dwarves he loves gold and has a business mind centuries ahead of the human characters. When Slaine becomes king Ukko is appointed his jester.


NEST : Druidess who urges Ukko to record Slaine's deeds. Ukko argues with her all the time but it is hinted there may be some mutual attraction between them.


NIAMH : Slaine's strong-willed wife. She is very assertive even for a woman of her times and prone to anger and jealousy, often beating up Slaine's other wives and concubines[9]
