Atelaw

...que no vol dir res, és la nova cançó que ahir vaig mesclar per a Perfect Pair. I també ahir vaig enregistrar una pista de bateria i una guitarra de prova per a una nova cançó. Crec que el 2004 haurà estat l'any més prolífic de Perfect Pair compositivament. Entre una cosa i l'altra crec que aviat podré presentar un CD sencer del que podréim anomenar "les demos del disc del 2004 que Perfect Pair no van arribar a gravar" i que més o menys ordenats, de moment són:

...which means nothing, is Perfect Pair's new song and it was mixed yesterday. I also recorded a drum track and a primitive guitar track for a new song. I think that 2004 will be the most prolific year, related to composing, in the band's history, to the point that I will soon be alble to present a CD of what we could call "the demos of the Perfect Pair album that the band did not record in 2004", and (in almost correct order) it will feature this songs, by now:


1.- Get It
2.- Verifies
3.- Quint Figurant
4.- Mars
5.- Instichia
6.- Power is Applied
7.- Atelaw


Audició en aquests moments - current listening: Five Horse Johnson "The No.6 Dance"

Més cançons noves - More new songs

Quan el meu
cosí
va dir que venia a veure'm, que en teoria havíem de fer alguna sessió de gravació per a Perfect Pair, vaig começar a treure idees mirant de compondre el màxim de coses per poder triar. Finalment no vam gravar res. Des d'aleshores, però, he iniciat un període compositiu com mai abans havia passat, i que segueix amb una nova composició feta els dos darrers dies i de la que ahir vaig enregistrar una versió de prova. També tinc nombroses idees enregistrades amb guitarra sola, esperant el seu torn. En aquests moments escolto el darrer disc de Mötorhead, "Inferno".

When my cousin said he weas coming to see me, and we were supposed to do a recording session for Perfect Pair, I started to compose as much ideas as I could, in order to have some stuff to choose from. We ended up recording nothing, but since then I have begun composing like never before. Yesterday I recorded a primitive demo of yet another song (and I have several ideas recorded with guitar alone, waiting tis turn). Current listening: "Inferno", the latest Mötorhead album.

Whitesnake

Whitesnake 04.10.04 - Razzmatazz
Barcelona (Catalonia)

Entrades exhaurides, fins i tot amb la vergonyosa manera com es van vendre tantes entrades com per rebentar l'antic Zeleste. Algun dia hi haurà un curtcircuit i la tragèdia sortirà a la premsa internacional. Ventilació 0 (fins i tot el Sr. Coverdale va fer diversos comentaris al respecte). També va dir que estava content de veure tanta gent atès que l'any passat ningú els volia contractar per venir (una altra mostra de la qualitat dels promotors que hem de patir).Un dels millors concerts de Whitesnake que he sentit d'aquesta gira, amb David Coverdale en un estat de gràcia com mai l'havia vist. Potser el so era massa heavy per gran part del repertori (trobem a faltar aquelles guitarres Marsden-Moody).

Sold Out. More tickets were sold than allowed for this venue. As a
result, the house was full and very hot. David Coverdale noticed this
and between songs said things like: "This is the hottest place in the
world", "You still can breathe?", etc. David said that it's good to
see so many people here because last year "Nobody wanted us to play here". This gives you an idea of how
mediocre are all the promoters in Barcelona (it is obvious that a
reunited Whitesnake show would be a success in this town). People sang
nearly each verse of every song, making David's voice inaudible at
times. He was happy and confortable. Somebody in the audience was
supposed to look like Ian Paice and this made Coverdale say: "We have
Ian Paice here! Good to see you Ian!". I've listened to many
Whitesnake concerts, some of them from this tour, and I can say that I
had never before heard David's voice in such good shape as last night
in Barcelona, reaching all the high notes with no problems. The guitar
sound was too heavy for most of the setlist. We miss that
Marsden-Moody sound.

This is, almost in correct order, the setlist:


Burn/Stormbringer
Bad Boys - Children Of The Night
Love Ain't No Stranger
Ready an' willing
Is This Love
Give Me All Your Love
Judgement Day - Doug Aldrich guitar solo
Crying In The Rain - Tommy Aldridge drum solo
Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City
Don't break my heart again
Fool For Your Loving
Here I Go Again
Take Me With You
Still Of The Night
Soldier Of Fortune (a capella)
