Duran Duran in Vienna or rejuvenating time travel

After all those years Duran Duran came back to Vienna for a concert. Though the location was not my favourite one (Bank Austria Halle at Gasometer - far out and far from brillian acoustics), last time I'd seen them in the Stadthalle near the city centre, I so much enjoyed the show: a proper life concert, old and new songs, great involvement of the band, interaction with fans had me and the other fans singing, dancing, shaking like a mad house. As proper kids of the 80ies everybody seemed to totally ignore the invite to tweet during the concert! The set list included many of the old favs and quite a couple of new songs. The only thing I really missed was Save a Prayer. Two hours later I knew for sure that time travel works & is so rejuvenating. Duran Duran took us back to the 80ies, and left all their fans happy feeling two decades younger (at least!).

Caledonian songs

I've just discoverd a sub-site of the Learning and Teaching Scotland website dedicated to Scotland's songs. This sub-site gives quite a nice overview over and some background information about Caledonian songs and tunes, including sound bites. I could even find samples of Puirt-a-beul, i.e. mouthmusic, reminding me so much of last years mini workshop on Puirt-a-beul with Darren MacLean, offered as part of the Celtic Connections music festival

Another Kate ...

Even though she's been around for quite a while now (her debut solo album came out in 1997), I've just discovered lovely singer and songwriter Kate Rusby and her cristal clear, angelic voice which so amazingly performs old and new English folk songs.

Brit Chicks & Cool Cantatrice

This year I've discovered three really cool (British) musicians:
Kate Nash,
Bat for Lashes &
Marina and the Diamonds. A bit late I know, but better late than never :-)
And one amazingly French chanteuse called Zaz. Can't wait to see them live: Spirited, strong & bright!

Brit Pop or so...

In fact, it shouldn't read Brit pop but rather Brit guitar - a bit like the soundtrack of Once. So whoever's now not completely confused by this descriptionn might actually enjoy James Cottriall's autumn gig's in Vienna, Amsterdam and/or the U.K....
