New Order/ Joy Division

Single: Hellbent (2011 Total Version)
VÖ: 08.07.2011

Total - from JOY DIVISION to NEW ORDER
Umfassende Retrospektive mit unveröffentlichtem Song
Von der Postpunk-Underground-Kultband zur Speerspitze der modernen Clubmusik. Die Geschichte der in Manchester beheimateten Bands JOY DIVISION und NEW ORDER ist gerade in den letzten Jahren wieder in den Blickpunkt der Musikszene gerückt. Gleich zwei Kinofilme arbeiteten den Mythos um beide Bands in den letzten Jahren auf: Michael Winterbottoms Darstellung der ‚Madchester’-Szene in 24 Hours Party People (2002) und Anton Corbijns gelungenes Filmporträt Control (2007), das eine einfühlsame Annäherung an den tragischen und charismatischen Frontmann von JOY DIVISION, Ian Curtis, versuchte. Zum ersten Mal gibt es mit Total - from JOY DIVISION to NEW ORDER nun eine repräsentative und chronologische Zusammenstellung der wichtigsten Songs beider Bands auf einer CD, die es mit 18 Songs schafft, die ganze Geschichte bis heute aufzurollen. Als besonderes Highlight enthält das Album überdies einen neuen, bislang nicht veröffentlichten Song mit dem Titel Hellbent.

Preview von BIFFY CLYROs erster Live-CD/DVD mit dem Release den Singles Mountains (Live From Wembley) und Many Of Horror (Live At Wembley)
Ab dem 27.

Die Original-Version von Mountains war BIFFY CLYROs bis dato erfolgreichste Single, erreichte im August 2008 Platz 5 der UK-Single Charts und war die Lead-Single ihres erfolgreichen Albums Only Revolutions, das bei seiner Veröffentlichung auf Platz 8 der britischen Album-Charts einstieg, ein Jahr später sogar noch einmal den dritten Rang erobern konnte und allein in UK über 600.000 Einheiten verkaufte. Wie alle Songs auf Revolutions // Live At Wembley wurden sowohl Mountains als auch Many Of Horror am 4. Dezember 2010 aufgenommen.
Revolutions // Live At Wembley bildet den gesamten Verlauf von BIFFY CLYROs Bandkarriere ab und enthält ihre wichtigsten Songs – angefangen vom Fan-Favoriten „57“ von ihrer Debüt-EP bis hin zu allen Singles ihres aktuellen Erfolgsalbums Only Revolutions. In Anlehnung an die klassischen Live-Alben der 70er enthält das 90-minütige Set auch zahlreiche weitere Klassiker ihres Back-Katalogs wie zum Beispiel „Saturday Superhouse“, „Folding Stars“ und „Glitter and Trauma“.

Death Cab For Cutie: Album: Codes And Keys

Death Cab For Cutie

Album: Codes And Keys
VÖ: 27.05.2011

Ein Generic Interview finden Sie unter www.warnermedia.de
Bei ihrem siebten Studioalbum lassen viele Bands oft kreativen Dampf und originelle Ideen vermissen. Doch im Fall von DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE könnte wohl nichts weniger zutreffend sein – schließlich ist „Codes And Keys“ in puncto akustischer Erkundung und textlichen Ehrgeizes in der langen Vita der Band absolut einzigartig: Noch nie haben sie aufgeregter mit Strukturen, Wörtern, Sounds und dem Aufnahmeprozess selbst herumexperimentiert. DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE kreierten ihr „Codes And Keys“ in verschiedenen Studios der US-Westküste in mehreren kurzen Explosionen über eine Dauer von sieben Monaten: im Sound City im kalifornischen Van Nuys (wo die Band „Meet Me On The Equinox“, die Single vom „The Twilight Saga: New Moon“-Soundtrack, aufnahm), im The Warehouse in Vancouver, in Drummer Jason McGerrs eigenen Two Sticks Audio und im Tiny Telephone in San Francisco. Zwischen diesen zehn- oder vierzehntägigen Aufnahme-Sessions legten sie die Songs beiseite und „brüteten sie aus“, wie Bassist Nick Harmer es ausdrückt. 
Zwar haben DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE stets ihre beste Arbeit abgeliefert, wenn sie in dieser häppchenartigen Weise aufgenommen haben, doch Harmer sagt auch, dass der Entstehungsprozess von „Codes And Keys“ so fragmentiert war wie nie zuvor. McGerr indes empfand es als unglaublich förderlich, hin und wieder ein bisschen Distanz von der Musik zu haben: „Es gab eine konstante Erneuerung durch frische Inspiration, die dadurch entstand, dass wir von Studio zu Studio umsiedelten.“
Hard-Fi: Single: Good For Nothing

Hard-Fi

Single: Good For Nothing
VÖ: 08.07.2011

Drei Jahre sind Pause genug: Die BRIT-Award-nominierten vier von HARD-FI kündigen für den 8. Juli eine frische Single an – 'Good for Nothing'.
'Good For Nothing' ist ein kräftiger Ausdruck ihrer Absichten; eine starke Hymne, aufrührerisch und mitreißend. Man merkt: Hier startet eine neue Phase für die Band. Die Single, produziert von Sänger Richard Archer, hat beim Radio schon eine ansehnliche Masse an Freunden, darunter Zane Lowe (BBC Radio 1), der findet, sie sei gerade seine "heißeste Platte auf der Welt", und der sie bei seiner Vertretung für Chris Moyles auf dem Plattenteller platzierte. Mit Fearne Cotton kam sogar noch eine Schüppe mehr Support von Radio1, und da wollen XFM nicht hinten anstehen und packten den Song in ihre Tages-Playlist; DJ Steve Harris adelte 'Good For Nothing' als seine "Single der Woche".
MANÁ : Album: Drama Y Luz

MANÁ

Album: Drama Y Luz
VÖ: 26.05.2011

Die ersten Top-5 in Europa sind bereits geknackt: Das brandneue MANÁ-Album Drama Y Luz spielte sich aktuell auf Platz 3 der Schweizer Albumcharts! Auch in Spanien ist das Album bereits veröffentlicht und hat dort schnurstracks Platz 1 gebucht. Ebenso sieht es jenseits des Atlantiks aus: Drama y Luz katapultierte sich aus dem Stand auf die Chart-Plätze 1 in Mexiko, Argentinien, Chile und Puerto Rico - wo die erste Single Lluvia al Corazon ebenfalls die Top-Position geentert hat.
Am 27. Mai erscheint Drama y Luz auch in Deutschland, und Lluvia al Corazon findet sich bereits  in den deutschen Airplay-Charts. Der Sommer kann also kommen - und mit ihm die wichtigste Rockband Mexikos. Am 16. Juni starten MANÁ ihre große Welt-Tournee 2011. Wenn sie nach Deutschland kommen, sollte man sich das Ereignis auf keinen Fall entgehen lassen, denn MANÁ haben bisher noch jede Bühne zum Vibrieren gebracht. Ihre Deutschland-Gigs sorgten bisher stets für nicht enden wollende Partynächte und ließen erschöpfte aber glückliche Fans zurück.
Judith Hildebrandt: Album: ganz Nah

Judith Hildebrandt

Album: ganz Nah
VÖ: 03.06.2011

Nachdem sie in den 90er Jahren englischsprachige Titel sang, veröffentlicht JUDITH HILDEBRANDT in Zusammenarbeit mit Warner Music Germany (TELDEC) am 03. Juni 2011 ihr erstes Album mit deutschsprachigen Titeln. Mit „Ganz nah“, so der Albumtitel, zeigt sich JUDITH von ihrer persönlichen Seite, beeindruckt mit emotionalem Gesang und einer unverwechselbaren Stimme. Titel wie „Für mich bist du die Welt“, „Lieb mich ein letztes Mal“ und „Deine Flügel“ sind dabei die großen Breitwand-Schlager-Balladen mit Gänsehautgefühl, die die musikalische Ausrichtung des Albums markieren. Mit „Ich hab Lust mit dir zu spielen“ und „Küss mit mir die Sonne wach“ liefert JUDITH gleich zwei temperamentvolle und tanztaugliche Nummern ab, die die Freude von „Ganz nah“ untermauern. Doch es gibt noch mehr als Gänsehautgefühl und Freude auf der CD „Ganz nah“ - es gibt ausgereifte Kompositionen, zeitlose Melodien und Texte sowie ein  modernes Produktions- und Arrangementniveau. Mit ihrem neuen Team bestehend aus  den Produzenten und Komponisten Norbert Endlich, Frank Kretschmer und Thomas Remm sowie dem Textdichter Marc Hiller sind insgesamt 13 Titel entstanden, die stimmungsvoll und berührend sind.
Mit „Ganz nah“ ist JUDITH HILDEBRANDT ein wirkliches Glanzstück gelungen. Zum ersten Mal singt sie deutsche Texte und interpretiert gefühlvolle Balladen sowie rhythmische Uptempo-Nummern. Mit zeitloser Eleganz sowie einer spielerischen Leichtigkeit füllt sich jeder Ton, jeder Akkord, jedes Wort auf diesem Album und vermittelt eine echte und sinnliche JUDITH HILDEBRANDT, die man spätestens jetzt einfach lieb haben muss. 
Catherine Ringer: Album: Ring N' Roll

Catherine Ringer

Album: Ring N' Roll
VÖ: 27.05.2011

A huge success followed with Rita Mitsouko in 1985 with the song ‘Marcia Baila’. They went on to work with Tony Visconti, Iggy Pop, The Sparks, Jesse Johnson, William Orbit, Serj Tankian… They are also known for their ‘little music-hall’ style videos. Catherine had found her partner, and their collaboration, with its ups and downs, lasted 28 years. They also worked separately: film scores, musicals, hip-hop productions… In 2007, a sudden cancer struck down the vital Fred after the release of their successful album Variety.
After a transition and the continuation of a tour they had started together, Catherine’s singing had lost its spontaneity. Her voice had dimmed.
While she was grieving, her pianist Pascal Simoni encouraged her to sing whatever she liked, Stevie Wonder, Brassens, whatever! “All right, then”, she said. They started working, and it all came out! Catherine’s riffs played by Mark, Mark’s riffs arranged by Catherine. The two Marks, Plati on guitar and bass, and Kerr on drums, Catherine on the mic, and off they went. They recorded 6 songs in 10 days at Studio SIX (the Rita Mitsouko’s studio). Three of them were kept for the album: ‘Z Bar’, ‘Yalala’ and ‘Pardon’. Mauro Gioia, Catherine’s accomplice from the album Rendez-vous chez Nino Rota’, came to sing on two tracks: ‘Yalala’ and ‘Z Bar’. It was clear that the inspiration was still there… They had to go on! The tour was extended and finished at the end of 2008 with the live album Catherine Ringer Chante Les Rita Mitsouko, recorded by Mark Plati. In 2009, Catherine decided it was time for her to see what she was capable of doing on her own in terms of composing and producing. With Azzedine Djelil and Jean-Baptiste Brunhes at the wheel of Studio Six (a.k.a Studio Francis), she composed, played (piano, loops, keyboards, guitar, bass), sorted through material… She also made songs with Mark Kerr, drummer and MPC player. She felt inspired by Mark playing through his collection of sounds. Catherine worked on and added ‘Rendez-Vous’ to the album, a song she had written and sung in 1998 with Coba, the Japanese accordionist. She also wrote a song based on Mahler’s ‘Adagietto’. Throughout these months, Catherine was guided by Fred’s advice. Finally, in February 2010, the album was almost ready! 17 “dance songs” in the can, 12 of which had to be finalized: a few arrangements, final takes on the voices, mixing… Catherine chose to ask the master of groove RZA, who accepted! In September 2010 in Los Angeles, they got to work in the Paramount Studios in a great atmosphere! Improvising, dancing, laughing… RZA enjoyed himself and loved the vibe of the songs which he felt he “could have created himself” (‘Punk 103’, ‘Got it Sweet’). During ten days, Catherine saw come through the studio funk guitars, soul, hip hop and the incredible John Frusciante from the Red Hot Chili Peppers… Yo! After a small incubation period, Catherine decided to sort through the LA recordings and finalize them at Studio Francis, and to do the final vocals and the mix with… Mark Plati!

Spotlight on British Country artist Tim McKay

Spotlight on British Country artist Tim McKay

21-year old Tim McKay has a new track on May’s Hot Disc #149 (Rush Released) the promotional compilations distributed to DJs, and Country Music industry professionals in the UK and worldwide. The track ‘It's Your Song’ is credited to Benita Hill and Pamela Wolfe and first appeared on Garth Brooks "DOUBLE LIVE" (1998). It was released as the only single from his album reaching a peak of # 9 on the U.S. Billboard country singles charts.
Tim entered the Hot Disc Top 40 at # 30 and in its second week has so far reached # 25. On the British & Irish Independent Hot Disc Top 10 it’s currently placed at # 9.

He was first exposed to country music when as an 8-year old whilst his father was at work he would go along with his step mum (Chris) to line dance classes dancing and watching other artists. In later years he attended Theatre Art School so he was surrounded by music and drama. Tim played at local clubs as a support artist and got his first break at a charity night. He has worked professionally from 17, he likes to interact with his audience and give a show. In his first year as a young new on the block artist he found it tough to get people to come out to gigs to see him but gradually with good positive feedback from internet and magazines the word spread and nowadays he is in demand with a busy tour schedules, with sell out crowds at clubs.

Two years ago he reached the finals of talent shows in North Lincolnshire and pop music Idol 2008 in Manchester which was televised. Musically he is drawn to the modern country sounds like Keith Urban and likes to play upbeat danceable material.
Tim has already won the British Entertainer of the Year award two years in succession. The current recipient is Henry Smith “The Garth Brooks of the South Coast”.

On 1st May 2011 Tim joined Allan Watkiss the current CMA International Broadcaster of the Year for an interview and live session on BBC Radio Sheffield. The song ‘The Way’ written by Clay Aitken who has been connected with American Idol was played. This appeared on McKay’s Debut album ANYTHING GOES and provided a source to sell at country club gigs.
The casual onlooker might merely have considered McKay as a live Hal Ketchum tribute act with seeing his Youtube videos and hearing his cover version of ‘Just This Side Of Heaven’ , a track the radio programmers often opt for and the title cut from McKay’s sophomore release. It’s an album he is proud of, containing easy listening songs and one self penned track ‘Never Say Never’.
I Missed My Mary’ another Ketchum composition which Tim covered was spun and he also performed an acoustic live version of the ‘Past The Point Of Rescue’. Tim saw Hal played live in Leeds in 2007 – “he was pure genius, he was phenomenal” he said.

Tim sang on the global Stage in Nashville as the sole UK country representative and made use of the opportunity to make useful contacts. He is working with a publishing company in Nashville, they find him people to work with that are writing # 1 hit. One of these is Cary Barlowe who writes for MajorBob Music. He has written for Taylor Swift and his first country single and first country #1 song was as a co-writer on Lady Antebellum's smash hit ‘American Honey’
Tim admits to struggling with lyrics but is more proficient on the musical side. It’s hoped that working with writers like Cary will bring the lyricist out of him.
On the programme ‘Goodbye Will Go’ was played along with performing another live original song ‘Here I Am’. Both were provided by the publishing company and the latter was something Tim sang when supporting Marty Stuart in Milton Keynes this year.

Tim had just returned from working in Denmark, Holland to sell out shows and has already been booked for repeat performances in Denmark for the next two years.

For the big festivals which he plays 5 or 6 times a year and for these occasions likes to put together a band. As solo artist using backing tracks in club to several hundred people is fine but this doesn’t convey through a big PA in fields with several thousand people. So having a 6-piece band in tow helps to fill out the sound on a musical level – “I really enjoy doing it, we have fun with it, it’s good” he says. It’s difficult to maintain a band making sure everyone’s happy, getting everyone in one place in a room to rehearse. Further band bookings are on the horizon in Europe.
When playing a line dance gig Tim is able to adapt his set to Top 20 line dance up-tempo numbers playing full on numbers from the get go.
Another string to Tim’s bow is playing as a Michael Bublé tribute act at weddings, which he plays 6 times a year. It is both financially rewarding and makes for variety

With fears of country music dying out in the UK Allan poised the question how Tim’s music is accepted and what of the future?

Allan: “People are always moaning about the British Country music scene dying out and say that you need to inject some youth into it, so THIS you, you are the future. But how of those older traditional audiences, how have they adapted to you – Have they gone with you, or don’t they like you, or what?

Tim: “If I had control of the British county music scene, this is going to be a touchy subject, I would have all the youngsters come and try, I’m not saying rock things up, but kind of move on with the times. When I went to America last year for the CMA week there were 100,000 people down in Nashville and the statistics came back that there were 29 and under the age of those 100,000 so it’s completely different scene down there. Obviously it’s a bigger country of course, but I think if we want to get it any further and get it onto mainstream radio we’ve got to loosen up a little bit. YES I do appreciate Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash because that’s where it all came from of course. I do listen to that kind of music sometimes BUT because I’m young I do like the new modern rockier stuff so I think if were going to get it any further in Britain that’s the way we’ve got to go.

Allan: “How are you going to make that transition though because you can’t at some sort of established listening club that has been going 40 years just switch it from Johnny Cash one week to say all Taylor Swift the next, the audience would just not come would they ? Your not going to get a whole load of new youngsters come in one go, can it be possible to change it over a long period of time?”

Tim: “I think it is, but it will take time, I went to see Lady Antebellum and Brad Paisley when they came over last year and young people turn up. You’re not seeing these people at a Tim McKay show or whoever show. These people are coming to see these artists because they know who they are, they know its country music, so there is a following out there”

Allan: “But those people will go to the O2 Arena, they’re not likely to go to X Working Mans Club, they don’t like the club scene “

Tim: “That’s what I’m saying, yeah. Why should a young 16-year old boy or girl come to see me sing covers by whoever like Brad Paisley when they can go to see him himself, why should they ? So that is why I’m going down the route at the moment of working on a lot of original stuff because I think if you going to make an artist of yourself you’ve got to have that original material”

Tim realises the need to push himself as an artist to get anywhere nowadays. For his new album due for release later in the year it will comprise of original material with a live sound with numbers co-written in America and England. Snippets will be made available on Tim’s website. For the project he is teaming up with John Taylor from Newcastle who has produced a group of people called The Company on an album COUNTRY SONGS OF TODAY . They perform Vic Holdroy songs, a writer from Yorkshire. The Company are :- Vic Holdroyd (Acoustic Guitar) , John Taylor (Vocals & Guitars) , Tom Hudswell (Bass) , Mike Evans (Drums) , Al Jones(keys) and Sarah Jory (Pedal-Steel & Dobro).
Tim feels that the trend for putting out short digital EP’s and singles on Internet is “evolving into something really big”.

In July Tim will be playing the Country Fest in LetterKenny, Ireland and Barmouth Country Music Fest, in North Wales.
On 19 / 20 July he will attend an International Dance Contest in The Seychelles. Tim is a member of the judging panel for this annual event and from 23 - 27 July is performing at the Country Music Jamboree.

Spotlight on UK Country artist Phil Lloyd

Spotlight on UK Country artist Phil Lloyd


Phil got into music back in 1965 doing rock and roll in multi-ethic outfit called the Five Aces. But it was country music he was drawn to when he went to see the film The Hank Williams Story featuring George Hamilton, and he got hooked - the rest is history. He started listening to the music of George Jones, Johnny Cash, Jim Reeves and later David Allen Coe, Charley Pride and later Waylon Jennings. Lloyd describes Jones as “the greatest singer ever” but he cites Hank Williams as his mentor and started performing his songs. For him every Williams were great songs and told a story.

Lloyd bought Hank Williams songbooks and albums were sourced from a cheap label RCA Camden and learnt the songs. From there he started going to a pub in Bentley in Doncaster called The Bay Horse, a popular venue in its heyday. Phil describes it as “The country capital of Doncaster”. It was there that Phil would get up on stage to sing, forming duos and trios and everything stemmed from there.
His country music tree started in the 60’s as The Lloyd James Duo, then trio, then band and then onto The Larry Hinchcliffe Trio which lasted 3 years. From there he teamed up with Ken Durrans to form a band called The Davisons. Shortly afterwards along the country route evolved the Phil Lloyd trio and then Phil Lloyd Sound. That band format included Jimmy Henderson (lead guitar), Mick Johns (bass) and Fred Harris (drums).

Three years afterwards Phil joined The Collier Dixon Line, with Dennis Collier (lead guitar), Phil on bass, Barry Ward (rhythm guitar) and Johnny Young (drums), they worked together for over four years.
For family reasons Phil left in 1976 with the birth of his daughter but when barely 6 months he was asked by musicians to form a new band, who had been working with Doncaster based Jack Parks and the West Coast Sound, this became known as Mustang. As a 4-piece band they would use a lot of close harmonies. In 1979 they won the coveted Marlborough Talent Competition, the finals were held at the Easter Wembley Festival – “sponsored by the cigarette company, hence the cough, we were all smokers then, they threw them at us” says Phil!
After this success, the pressure was on, expectations were running high in terms of their live performances – “You couldn’t falter and have an off night”. They performed with American artists touring at the time.

In 1983, 6 years on, due to financial constraints the band split. From there another band came into being called Shackband – “It was a different ball game because it was back to being enjoyment and going out for a laugh” says Lloyd. Dave Rafferty the steel guitarist and lead for Collier Dixon Line joined them for 2 years. Due to work commitments he had to leave and Scotty from Mustang rejoined and they stayed together for the next 6 years.
In 1989, due to personal problems (nervous breakdown) Lloyd took a 3-year break but then he met his wife Carole and she encouraged him to make a return. A call was made to buddy Ken Durrans and together they formed the partnership Phil & Ken. On and off they have been together since 1971, fast forward to the present day Phil works as a solo act.

Phil enjoyed the live band days best but due to the economic climate with clubs not being able to afford to pay bands he became a performer in his own right. Occasionally at festivals he gets to play as part of a band meeting up with other musicians.
In the days of Phil & Ken there was a great rapport and much humour. They would go out to enjoy themselves as entertainers, the fun rubbed off on the audiences who would go home happy.

Phil has made many records over the years with the different bands and four solo albums. Ken likes to sing powerful songs; ones he can “get his teeth into”. Phil has cut quite a few George Jones tracks because of his admiration for the great man.

Lloyd has a brand new album called MEMORIES which comprises old-time material from the 60’s up to the 80’s. These songs are ones he likes to sing and has thus recorded; it is selling well at gigs. The album cover has pictures going back many a year when he had brown hair – “I have always had a beard since 15, I did shave it off once but was told to re-grow it because I was too ugly” states Lloyd.
The last few years have been a difficult period because Phil has had problems with his voice. 3 years ago he had nodules on vocal chords and had them removed. He returned to the music scene too soon and struggled to hit the notes. Then a lump grew in his throat which resulted in further operations to remove it but his voice returned after recuperation. He had to visit a speech therapist when he could talk but not sing – “Me at a speech therapist” jokes Lloyd.
He classes himself as a country singer not a dance act and there were frustrations not being able to reach the high notes. He had reassurances from friends like Gary Perkins who have undone similar operations that the voice would return. Phil’s vocal chords are now straight and everything is thankfully back to normal.
In January 2011 he felt his voice was ready and able to record once again, hence forth this new album.

On 22 May 2011 Phil Lloyd “Doncaster Country Legend” joined current CMA International Broadcaster of the Year Allan Watkiss for an interview on BBC Radio Sheffield to promote it. The project was a former country programme Album of the Week feature. Songs played from MEMORIES included ‘Streets Of Baltimore’, 3 Alan Jackson songs: ‘You Can’t Have It All’, ‘House With No Curtains’ and ‘Who Said You Can’t Have It All’ and ‘My Woman My Woman My Wife’ by Marty Robbins, of whom he regrets never having the opportunity to work with. Looking back over his career, from the Mustang collection came ‘Love Is Just A Game’ and ‘Cause It’s You’ from The Shackband era.

In interview Phil spoke about songwriting and the way the live music scene has changed.

About songwriting
Phil “I didn’t do a lot of it to be quite honest, the Americans have got it taped, some fabulous songs out there, it’s very hard to do your own stuff and have it appreciated. You see so many acts go on stage and say “Right I’m going to sing all my own songs tonight” and they FALL FLAT because people don’t recognize them. This is the thing about country music people like to hear songs that they have heard before, that they can recognize.

Allan: “It’s very hard for a British act to get a song known with isn’t it? With one or two exceptions like Dave Sherriff, where people know them now”
Phil: “Dave cottoned onto the line dance scene and he started writing line dance songs because they are played the length and breadth of the country now. So they all know they are Dave Sherriff songs. What I would a call as the REAL country fans they aren’t interested in line dancing, they wouldn’t think two things about it, they are just songs, but to the line dancers he is a household name”

What of the changes in the British club scene over the last 46 years?

Phil: – “When we did the clubs in the 60’s and 70’s and you got there at 7 o’clock, people were queuing up to get in. Now you roll up at 7, 7:30 to set up and they crawl in a 9 o’clock and you to play to 25 - 40 people in a club, it’s sad, umm I don’t know what it is, I think there is to much in-house entertainment now and people don’t want to come out. I tell a gag on stage, 'I played a club last night and I was the youngest in there, and I was the only one in without a stick (laughs) “

Allan: “What’s the future then for the British Country Music Scene - Doesn’t look good does it? “

Phil: “I don’t know, it I’ll keep going, we need young people in, and that’s all”

Alan: “How are you going to do that, how are you going to get young people in “

Phil: “Were getting some young entertainment in now of course, the young singers come in and all that. I always think that people of our age back when they were 30 didn’t like country music. They get to 40 and 50 and they suddenly like country music, so hopefully this will happen. People in their 30’s or their 40’s will start to like country music and come to watch country music. Love line dancing or hate it, it does bring people into clubs and you’ve got to appreciate that and it keeps them going. I think the biggest problems with a lot of clubs are the finance side of things. Being an entertainer of course you have to get paid for what you do. If every club charged a nominal fee to get in to see entertainment I can’t see a problem, I think clubs would flourish.

Allan: “Would people pay it?”

Phil: “Well you’ve always got a mentality of people - That I’m a member of this club and I shouldn’t pay to come in “. But if you go up to the North East everybody pays. Go anywhere in the club and its free, go into the concert room where there is a turn on and you pay. Maybe only £1, but you pay, it does help to offset the price of the acts, and I think it would help tremendously”

After 46 years in on the music scene Phil says he is still living, breathing and enjoying what he does. He has taken his foot off the gas and is no longer doing 5 nights every week. He says he needs to have enjoyment now and hopes the audiences appreciate his show. He has enough songs to keep everyone happy at dance clubs – “No one has ever written a song for line dancers, you write a song and people dance to it”

Sadly good friend Barry Ward died and Dennis Collier has asked Lloyd to attend a memorial show on 22 August so it will be reunion with Ken Durrans and The Collier Dixon Line. It will be live, no backing tracks - “Dennis Collier has a backing track bonfire every year”!

Steel Guitar News

Hello fellow players,

I just had a question asked of me that seems like a very intelligent question.  I think this question may be in several other people�s minds so I�m going to answer it here in the newsletter.  I was asked how us old guys learned to play so well so fast in the beginning of pedal steel guitar.

For instance, 1951 there were none, but by 1955 there were many great steel guitar players playing unbelievably well.  Did we practice all day long every day?  Did we all huddle together and help each other out?  Did we listen to each other every chance we could?  Did we attend every jam session that we could find?

My answer was players with great tone and execution that played without pedals simply added pedals and then learned licks with the pedals.  Guys like Sonny Burnett that played almost nothing, but pedals inspired him to practice continually and listen to everybody else.

Walter Haynes bought a Bigsby from Shot with one pedal on it.  He recorded �We Could� with Jimmy Dickens and the entire world went nuts over that record and this is the same story for Bud Isaacs and Sonny Burnett that cut those glorious records with Webb Pierce.

It�s hard to hide a candle under a bushel basket when the light is that bright.  Everyone that owned a steel guitar and everybody that didn�t own a steel guitar had gone totally nuts over that E to A pedal sound.

Then when Buddy Emmons came along with his Bigsby, everything he recorded was a steel guitar lesson to anyone that had 87 cents for a 45 rpm record.  I remember seeing Buddy with Jimmy Dickens on a television show out of Louisiana and he had just split his E to A pedals and he played some beautiful things that forced me to bang my head against the wall.

>From this point on, I didn�t care if I had to throw my whole entire life away, all I could hear in my mind twenty four hours a day was that steel guitar sound.  So how did we get better was the question from 1951 to 1961.  I believe we were all driven nuts by that incredible style and sound.  Everybody was practicing, jamming, copying, working any kind of a job they could get, in Nashville or out and also it seems like everybody helped everybody at that period of time.

Anytime anyone came out with a new lick on a record and one guy could play it, he�d show everybody within earshot how to do it.  What wonderful days these were.  By far the greatest thing to help steel guitar and make it what it is today were the pedals on the E9th neck.

It was so haunting that even piano players were building styles playing steel guitar licks.  Remember Floyd Cramer?  If it wasn�t for him copying steel guitar, he�d still be totally unknown today.

Ever hear of the Scruggs tuner on a banjo?  This trick was just as dastardly as the pedal on the steel guitar.  I think if Danny Davis could�ve put a pedal on his trumpet, the Nashville Brass would still be cutting hit tunes today.

Back to the original question again.  How did us old guys suddenly get so good so fast?  It had directly to do with us all becoming so enthusiastic with that sound that when we got up in the morning, we�d sit down behind our steel guitar and play it continually until something was threatening to drive us out of the house.

You know.  Something like the kitchen on fire.  Or the police banging on the door telling us to turn down the volume.

The greatest thing to happen to steel guitar was Bud Isaacs coming up with the pedal and recording �Slowly� with Webb Pierce.  He lit the fuse on the musical dynamite that blew the world apart.  He blew steel guitar into the next century literally.  And then right behind him Sonny Burnett recorded the rest of many songs with Webb Pierce playing with style.

Both of these guys are still with us today, but time is nibbling hard at their heels.  To know either one of these people is to know the absolute beginnings of real steel guitar the way it�s played today.

The Lloyd Green, Buddy Emmons, Walter Haynes, Don Davis, Howard White, even the Paul Franklin, Tommy White styles are just these old original styles with a lot of nice little tricks thrown in.  If you love steel guitar, you have to love what these guys did.  

You�d think that going back and listening to them today would be hard to do because our little style of playing steel has progressed so much, but this isn�t true.  I know new steel players today that are going back and listening to the beginning of this style.  The great Chris Scruggs is one of these players.  I�d just as soon listen to him play as about any steel player around because he takes me back where it was in the beginning.

I think this explains how we all got so good in the beginning so fast.  It was just something that lit our fuses that we had to learn to play quickly because we loved it.  

Remember also, we didn�t have steel guitars that you could run down to the store and buy.  We had to put our own pedal on whatever guitars we owned at the time.  Fender, National, Rickenbacker, Magnatone, Silvertone or anything we could find or build.  It didn�t play easy, however some incredible sounds came from what we would call junk today.

Half the mystique of steel guitar was making these old non-pedal guitars get these sounds that were coming out of Nashville.  As I said in a previous newsletter, Shot Jackson setup a little garage area to put pedals on any steel guitar he could find and the rest of us ended up playing them twenty four hours a day.

The real pedal guitars came out in the mid to late fifties.  Bigsbys, Fender 1000 to name a couple.  I think everybody in the world was waiting for them.  From that point on, steel guitar has progressed more rapidly than any musical instrument ever has since the beginning of time.

KAREN WALDRUP COMPETES ON BRAVO'S "PLATINUM HIT" DEBUTING MONDAY, MAY 30 AT 10/9c

Lone Country Artist and Nashville Native is 1 of Twelve Songwriters Competing on Bravo's New Reality Television Show "Platinum Hit"
NASHVILLE, TN-Aspiring singer/songwriter, Karen Waldrup, makes her debut on Bravo's "Platinum
Karen WaldrupHit" reality series Monday, May 30 at 10/9c. With Jewel hosting and former "American Idol" judge Kara Dioguardi serving as head judge, Waldrup will test her songwriting abilities and face critics from music industry stars including Natasha Bedingfield, Jermaine Dupri, and Leona Lewis among others. The charismatic performer is the lone country singer competing against eleven songwriting peers for the coveted $100,000 cash prize, publishing deal with Sony, BMI Songwriters The Writing Camp and a recording deal with RCA/Jive.

"My experience on 'Platinum Hit' enhanced my songwriting skills and showed my ability to work under pressure," says Waldrup after filming.  When asked about her passion for music she quotes, "I don't do it for money or fame; I do it for the ENRICHMENT. To give back to the world what they have given to me."

With her sweet southern voice accentuated by a hint of New Orleans's soul and grit, Karen Waldrup continues to pursue her music dreams and live by her father's words "just keep on chipping away at it." Originally from Mandeville, LA, this ambitious artist started singing at the age of fifteen at Our Lady of the Lake Church in her hometown.  After graduating from the University of Southern Mississippi on a vocal scholarship, Waldrup relocated to the Music City and in 2008 became one of GAC's Top 25 Songwriters.  In the summer of 2009, Waldrup opened for country music star Rodney Atkins at the "Salute to the Troops" concert at Fort Campbell and shared the roster with country music stars Carrie Underwood, Hank Williams Jr., and Jake Owen.

Waldrup recently released her self-titled independent album in January 2011, which can be purchased on her Web site, iTunes, and other digital outlets.  Her newest song, Don't Worry About Me,is about being optimistic about letting go after a relationship.  For more information about Karen Waldrup please visit www.karenwaldrup.com
