It Was a Long Winter… It Was a Long Season

I knew that the hockey season eventually had to end but I held out hope that the Stanley Cup Finals would go the full 7 games, but the Blackhawks had other ideas, winning their third Stanley Cup in six years, at home in front of their adoring fans. Congratulations to Coach Q & the Blackhawks. 

I’m sure that Manchester Monarch fans also wished that their season might have just lasted a little longer. After 20 years in Manchester the Monarchs finally win their first Calder Cup Championship but next season will defend their title in Ontario, California. I feel sorry for Manchester fans, but, unlike Worchester, they will have hockey next season because the parent L.A. Kings relocated their ECHL team in Ontario, CA to Manchester.

Monterey Pop: California Dreamin’

Ah the sounds of Summer! And with it comes the now ubiquitous Summer Festival. Think I’m kidding? In April Rolling Stone.com published a piece on summer concerts, “Summer 2015’s 50 Must-See Music Festivals.” No matter your musical tastes there’s a Festival that caters to it.

But  once upon a time in the West, when there hadn’t even been one rock festival, suddenly, in a two week period there were two. Naturally they took place in California, in 1967, the epicenter of Youth Culture.

This upcoming week marks the 48th anniversary of The Monterey International Pop Festival (June 16-18, 1967).

Last week marked the 48th anniversary of The KFRC Fantasy Fair and Magic Mountain Music Festival (June 10-11, 1967) which is considered to have been America’s – if not the world’s – first rock festival.

The Magic Mountain Music Festival was primarily a regional music affair because the majority of the artists who performed

were groups that played the Fillmore and Avalon ballrooms and were part of the psychedelic rock scene at the time,

A  list of regional acts included The Sparrow, Every Mother’s Son, Kaleidoscope, The Mojo Men, Sons of Champlin, The Loading Zone and The Mystery Trend.

Performers with, a bit, more name recognition (at the time) included Dionne Warwick, Jefferson Airplane, The Byrds with Hugh Masekela, The Seeds, The Grass Roots and The 5th Dimension.

Interestingly The Magic Mountain Music Festival was The Doors first large show and just happened to coincide with the rise of group’s first major hit, “Light My Fire” to the top of the charts.

 Monterey, on the other hand,

was … the first high-profile event to mix acts from major regional music centers in the U.S.A. — San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Memphis and New York City

and

boasted a lineup that put established stars like The Mamas and the Papas, Simon & Garfunkel and The Byrds alongside groundbreaking new acts from the UK and the USA.

At Monterey was American audiences first introduction to The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Who and Ravi Shankar, while also introducing Otis Redding “to a large, predominantly white audience.”

Playing Monterey helped to launch the careers of Janis Joplin (Big Brother and the Holding Company), Canned Heat, Laura Nyro and Steve Miller.

In 2015 we remember Monterey, rather than Magic Mountain simply

 because Monterey was widely promoted and heavily attended, featured historic performances, and was the subject of a popular theatrical documentary film…

Monterey served as both inspiration and template for future music festivals, including the Woodstock Festival two years later.

Combined both festivals were spark that helped to jumpstart 1967’s “Summer of Love.”

If you were a teenager or young adult in 1967 the “Summer of Love” were heady times, but at the time, who could have ever imagined that 1968, would be so dark.

Enjoy the music, remain in the light.

Orphans

I was in the process of packing up some books in my daughter’s old room when I came across a stack of loose CDs on a bookcase. The only way I could identify the majority of them was to go online. Interestingly she left behind several CDs that were part of 2 CD sets. Now who does that? So if you’re missing Disc 2 from Pavement’s Slanted & Enchanted: Luxe & Reduxe or Wowee Zowee (Sordid Sentinels Edition) I have you covered.

I’ll admit that the majority of the music posted here isn’t my cup of team but besides expanding my musical horizons it allowed me the opportunity to test both CUERipper and Asunder.

This should keep you busy for awhile.

In News You Missed This Week

In News You Missed This Week

To celebrate Bikini Kill frontwoman and key figure in the riot grrrl movement, Kathleen Hanna’s recent performance at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre Boston Mayor Marty Walsh proclaimed that April 9, 2015 is now officially “Riot Grrrl Day” in Boston.

The full text of his proclamation:

 

The riot grrrl philosophy has never felt more relevant, with misogyny still rampant in many cultural spaces;” and “Riot grrrls redefine the language used against them and continue to fight the newest incarnations of patriarchy. In doing so, they ironically confirm one ex-congressman’s accidental wisdom: ‘the female body has ways to try to shut that down.’ It sure does: women’s voices telling their stories can shut that down.”

 

While Punk had been popular since the mid 1970’s by the late 1980’s it hadn’t, as yet, produced a popular female fronted group… but that was about to change.

The beginning of the ‘90s saw most of the music world’s attention beginning to focus on Seattle’s burgeoning music scene but an hour south of Seattle in Olympia WA, and centered around Evergreen College, another music scene was beginning to take shape. 

Overshadowed by Seattle, but no less noisy, this music scene was built by, built for, and built around Women, their bands and a sub-genre of Punk dubbed Riot Grrrl.

Riot grrrls weren’t afraid of volume, impoliteness and the hounds of political correctness. They had a message, and they wanted to say it as loud as possible.

In 1991 the riot grrrl manifesto was published in the pages of BIKINI KILL ZINE 2.

Two of the seminal riot grrrl groups were Bikini Kill and Bratmobile. Started in 1991 by University of Oregon students Allison Wolfe and Molly Neuman Bratmobile would break-up publicly on stage in 1994, reform in 1998 and break-up again in 2003.

Bikini Kill formed in Olympia, WA, in 1990 with Kathleen Hanna (vocals), Billy Karren (guitar), Kathi Wilcox (bass) and Tobi Vail (drums).

Noted for their fiery live performances and notorious for its radical feminist lyrics the band while occasionally

collaborating with high-profile acts such as Nirvana and Joan Jett 

was better known for shunning both the major record labels and the mainstream rock press. In 1997 after releasing two full length albums, several EPs and two compilations the band called it quits. Hanna would then go on to produce the lo-fi solo project The Julie Ruin and the band Le Tigre.

In 2015 riot grrrl bands and their philosophy don’t receive the kind of press coverage that they received 25 years ago but

 

The riot grrrl philosophy, aesthetic and legacy continues to influence art today including a slew of new female punk projects like The Barbazons, Slutever and others.

Happy Valentine’s Day

It’s Valentine’s Day. Did you, once again, forget the heart shaped box of chocolates, the stuffed Teddy bear, the roses, the jewelry, or just a card. Well… there is always the “Gift of Music.” Good luck with that.

For myself, it won’t be love keeping me warm today, it will be once again shoveling snow.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
