Tonight it’s a quick stop at the Nouveau-Casino in Paris for Mr Mint. It’s Goose night…nope, not the kind you eat with a side of pommes sautees, but an eletro-rock band coming from Belgium. Take a little time out of your busy lives to check out their brand new album Synrise my friends, because you’ll see a lot of remixes coming out of it.
The first part isn’t quite interesting (pardon the honesty): some DJ trying to perform something but I don’t really care about him. Neither does the couple sucking each other throats in the middle of the dancefloor. Nice job guys. Just what I need to see. Excuse me but I need a Martini.
Then Goose enters the stage and BAM! These guys simply explode the scene with their robot-like drummer and 3 keyboards. And then the keyboards get replaced by guitars and again…BAM! some incredible tracks like Black Gloves and Bring it on fill the room. The beat is pounding right into our brains, the blue stroboscop is blinding us and, god, isn’t that a great feeling!
These guys are kind of remindful of Justice. You can tell there is some kind of dark side in action here, but you don’t care, you’re focused on the power coming from the stage and you just want to dance.
All in all a great performance and a wonderful discovery that will definetely end up in my next party’s playlist. Check them out if you get the chance to see them live.
End of the show, the couple next to me finally pack up their tongues. Goose, definetely too sexy for some :)
Oh, and thanks to Nicolas for the cool pics that you can see after the jump!
Looks like I got bitten by a mosquito last night. I’ll betcha that little guy is pretty hungover today…
Religion really should never attempt to be cool. All the cool things, such as huge explosions, space travel and electric guitars are owned by science…. All religion has is that Pulp Fiction bible quote.
Sure. Kids are expensive. But then, you never know when you’re gonna need a kidney.
Olives are an evil little condiment. I hate them. They sneak onto your pizza, in your salads, even in your Tuna sandwhich! And once they are there, they taint all your food with their disgustingly salty bitter flavour. How dare they? As far as I’m concerned, all olives can go and get stuffed!
They say when you are cornered by a large, evil and nasty bear that you should lie down and play dead. I wonder if that theory extends to being cornered in meetings at work. We’ll soon find out.
What ever happened to America being the “chosen land”, the “mecca”, the place where dreams come true? Where did the line get drawn on who could get in this country, when it is founded on immigration? When did land of the free start meaning world police? How did America change from the good guys to the bad?
Nearly everyday I see another news report about how Americans are in another country mucking about in foreign affairs. They are always at odds with another nation, and the military is everywhere. Americans seem to blur the line of right and wrong, thinking their way is the only way, and ignore foreign policies. I know I will have groups of people from all sides with an opinion on this, and I encourage your points of view.
The U.S.A. doesn’t even need to go over to your country to mess things up. Foreigners who travel to the states will be subjected to the same treatment that the rest of the world enjoys. I could subject you to lengthy details of past offenses, but if you ever poke your head out your door or flip on the television, you’ll know what I am talking about. The worst bit of it is that Americans get brain washed by their media to believe that they are doing the right thing, and the rest of the world cowers to this over weight conquerer.
If you think that this world dominance stops with the battles for oil, over throwing unwanted foreign leaders or just regular meddling in international policy, you’d be wrong. American culture (if you can call it culture) has spread like a rash upon this once pristine world. Fastfood restaurants, sitcoms and economics has virtually single handily destroyed whole nations. The world is getting fatter, less intelligent and poor, all thanks to Uncle Sam.
Bullies are all the same. This world playground needs to weed out this tormentor. How great would it be to have the old America back; where the welcoming statue of liberty really meant you will be home on her shores. Let’s go back to a healthy and prosperous world. Let’s take the badge away from these self appointed world police, and learn to govern ourselves. I look forward to world peace…but I am not expecting it from big government, it can only come from you.
I tell you, folks – sometimes life must be hard when you are a good looking girl who wants to be a musician… I mean, look at this band, Warpaint:
five four (thx Harkie) lovely girls making easy listening pop/rock music (and they’re from L.A.!). One could be forgiven for not taking them seriously. Unfortunately for the “easy haters”, however, these five four girls actually rock – and it sounds as if they really put their heart into it !
Warpaint’s musical style is poppy, for sure, but it is clever enough to keep a constant (voluntary) melancholy that makes them stand out from the rest. Their first album, called The Fool was already a lesson in how a catchy song can get stuck in your head and kill your day at the office (“Set your arms down”, “Undertow”). In their live performance, we also have the chance to rediscover songs such as “Baby”, the lovers song… and I’ll be damned – it works! Check out all the pictures after the jump :) [read more]

moshekasher One of the most pathetic feelings is unfriending someone on Facebook and hoping they notice.

Maybe you heard of him a few years ago, because he was “the dude whose album was produced and distributed on the web by Trent Reznor“, but trust us, Saul Williams is much more than that. In fact Mr Williams as well as being considered one of the most respected representatives of the alternative hip-hop scene, is also a poet, an actor (check out his movie Slam), a rapper and last but not least an artist, a true one.
Let’s not forget one of the main reasons we like Saul Williams and that is his powerful engagement in the anti-war movement. In a time where most musicians are afraid to speak up about politics and the horrors and injustices of our society, Mr Williams says it like it is: “I am releasing these songs because music is perhaps our greatest means of political amassment, because the airwaves are imbalanced and have conditioned us either into a state of apathy or to a state of condoning unjust violence and militarism carried out in our name.”
We couldn’t have said it better. Here is to you Saul, keep up the good fight!
Check out a few pictures from his brilliant show which took place in Paris last May.
