A tale of two music genres and many geographical regions

I guess there is no one that could tell the tale of punk and funk better than A Certain Ratio, the band that put these two seemingly opposing styles in dialogue since their very first album in 1979.

But let’s go back in the early 1980s or rather late 1970s, a bleak period in social terms but a great period for music and artistic experimentation. ACR took inspiration from a Brian Eno’s song ‘The True Wheel’ for their name and formed the band in 1977 in Manchester. One year later, Tony Wilson and Alan Erasmus would form Factory Records and would sign ACR, releasing albums of the band until 1986. Unlike most of the bands of that period, ACR have been producing their own albums since they were formed with their debut album being produced by the legendary Martin Hannett.

If there was just one phrase that would uniquely describe both a band’s music and the reason why I personally adore them, it would be Ogre’s statement in an interview in 2013:

“…there is a very military side to Industrial music, and we are far more in the psychedelic side…”

Skinny Puppy founded by Kevin Crompton a.k.a cEvin Key in 1983, is one of the very important bands in the industrial music scene, with quite unique and clearly identifiable characteristics from the bands that preceded and inspired them. Kevin Ogilvie a.k.a Nivek Ogre has joined Key from the beginning until now and the two of them remain the only constant members of the band. The band has collaborated with many musicians including Bill Leed (bass, synth, backing vocals) and Dwayne Goettel and have been joined by various session musicians on their tours.

Within the chaotic dystopia that is our world these days, it is really precious to listen to songs whose music make you want to grab the person next to you and start dancing, despite what the lyrics are talking about. Then, it will just be a word or two from the lyrics of MADAM‘s songs, that will momentarily want to make you stop dancing and start some serious thinking about your life choices but you will very soon start dancing again nonetheless.

…5 stories about bridging punk, theatre and a radio show

I am sure that if you have ever tuned in to Resonance FM on a Friday evening and you are not new to radio shows (or Resonance’s shows for that matter) you will know that BAD PUNK is not your typical broadcast. I have personally never come across a show where the time between the songs is equally important as the songs themselves. It is a logic similar to that of those painters who are equally interested in the colored area of the canvas as well as the space around them and the ‘dialogue’ between them. Every Friday night at 10pm the Band of Holy Joy, offer an hour where music is interjected by spoken word.It can either be a word, a verse or just a poetic way of presenting a song. The music that follows, enhances or stretches further the meaning of the words that precede it or is in direct contrast to them. In the end, you will probably conclude that all this does not matter, because the purpose is for us to be immersed to the atmosphere that Johny Brown is creating, so that after the show we can channel this energy into something else.
