The Libertines @ Zénith, Paris Sept 30 2014

The Libertines @ Zénith, Paris Sept 30 2014
 Notre tenace reporter était backstage pour le concert des Libertines à Paris
voici son compte rendu:

21H25 Pete arrive au Zénith bière a la main accompagné de 3 assistants, il file dans le dressing-room.5min plus tard il salue les autres membres du groupe dans une autre loge ou le batteur fait ses exercices.

21H33 le groupe est prêt , le batteur continue de s'échauffer tel un boxer, ils se dirigent vers la scène.les lumières s'éteignent ...
21H35 le concert commence dans un zénith au 3 quart rempli.Paris avait l'air d'attendre le groupe depuis pas mal d'année.Le public à été le 5 eme Homme du groupe surement le meilleur élément ce soir.Ça chante, ça saute, ça pousse, ça balance des gobelets de bières .. très vite la chaleur envahie le zénith de la Villette.Un simple écran géant , quelques petits jeu de lumières enfin rien qui n'explique le prix du billet de concert.Entre deux chansons un fan jette son sandwich sur scène, Pete le ramassa croqua dedans et dit : '' VIVE LE SAUCISSON ! '' avant de le lancer dans le public.

Le batteur est très bon , le chanteur fait le boulot ,le bassiste est un fantôme.Le même jeu de scène que Bill Wyman .
Après 2heures de concert l'alcool se fait ressentir du coté de chez Doherty qui n'était pas trop mal jusque la.Il decide de mettre un kick sur son pied de micro puis fit tombé son ampli de guitare avant de lâcher sa guitare en plein morceaux pour sauter sur le dos du chanteur..Les deux compères s'écrouleront sur la batterie laissant le bassiste seul devant le public comme un c*n.
tel un bon garçon il s’avança vers le micro et conclu la soirée par un '' MERCI PARIS ''

The Do @ "Coming up session #1" France Inter, Paris Sept 24 2014

The Do @ "Coming up session #1" France Inter, Paris Sept 24 2014
 
L'album de The Dø “Shake shook shaken” sortira le 29 septembre sur le label Cinq7.Ils sont à l’affiche de « Coming Up Session ! » une heure de concert dans le mythique studio 105.

The Do sort un nouvel album “Shake shook shaken” et vient interpréter ses nouvelles chansons dans les studios de la Maison de la Radio pour la nouvelle émission mensuel de Valli "Coming up session".
Le duo accompagné de deux musiciens, nous présente une pop-electro assez sympa très encrée au niveau du son dans le milieu des années 80. La chanteuse à la voix pure est mignonnette mais ce genre de  musique, ce n'est pas trop notre tasse de thé.
Sympathique, pour amateurs du genre.

Concert d'un peu plus de 45 min à écouter sur l'antenne de France Inter samedi à 21h.

Pink Floyd 's "Endless Summer" to be out on November 10 2014

 The Endless River will be available on standard CD, double vinyl and as a deluxe box set that includes 39-minutes of extra material. 
Out on Nov 10
Check OFFICIAL SITE for more

The Endless River has as its starting point the music that came from the 1993 Division Bell sessions, when David Gilmour, Rick Wright and Nick Mason played freely together at Britannia Row and Astoria studios.  This was the first time they had done so since the ‘Wish You Were Here’ sessions in the seventies.  Those sessions resulted in The Division Bell, the band’s last studio album.

In 2013 David Gilmour and Nick Mason revisited the music from those sessions and decided that the tracks should be made available as part of the Pink Floyd repertoire.  It would be the last time the three of them would be heard together.  The band have spent the last year recording and upgrading the music,using the advantages of modern studio technology to create The Endless River.

The Endless River is a tribute to Rick Wright, whose keyboards are at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound. It is a mainly instrumental album with one song, ‘Louder Than Words’, (with new lyrics by Polly Samson), arranged across four sides and produced by David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Youth and
Andy Jackson.

Release date: 10 November 2014

Good show with a rock band for some very 60's orientated Pop-Rock songs
Only 45 min 60 min with no encore, come on guys, I'm sure you can do better !
Sound was perfect from the back but lightning was complete shit, hard to make a decent picture.
Nice Beatles T-Shirt and setlistand that Jimi Hendrix"Cry baby" box once again

Scorpions @ Fête de l'Humanité, la Courneuve, Sept 13 2014

Scorpions @ Fête de l'Humanité, la Courneuve, Sept 13 2014
French Rap band I AM

It's a bit of pain in the ass to get to the Parc de la Courneuve, first it's a few kilometers outside Paris, second it's in a shitty area with nothing around it. It takes ages to go there
Then the site is so huge that it takes more than 30 min to go from the entrance to the main stage.
Probably around 200 000 people on the site every day with 60 000 people watching the gigs on the main stage.
Good thing is that it is very cheap if you want to go : 30 euros for 3 days, yes only 30 euros for 3 days (12 for a day) with lots of concerts , political debates... remember it's the French Communist party's rally. Yes there is still one in France.
Any way, the only interesting band on the bill for this week-end is German Hard-rock band SCORPIONS, Massive Attack played yesterday night.
No time to waste for politics, probably every division  of the Communist Party from every town has its own tent with people debating and food to eat...and local bands playing, You CANNOT imagine how huge is the site.



As we're a bit early you could catch I AM 's set, which was not bad for french rappers, they're very popular over here.
After a long break, SCORPIONS are supposed to take the stage at 9:40 pm, the germans are finally hitting the stage past 10:00 pm.

ROCKERPARIS as always has the best seat in da house: on stage.

---Rudolf about to go on stage with his "Blackout" mask nearby (below far left)---
Scorpion on the P.A.
 
  Each time we came here we could attend the gigs on stage: Babyshambles, Alain Bashung, NERD The Kooks, Deep Purple...this year makes no exception.
For the first part of the show we're on Rudolf's side of the stage, with his "Blackout" Mask just in front of us. From where we are, the sound is not too great but the view is fantastic, we can see the audience from the first row till the last and feel its power, incredible.
First part of the show we were on Rudolf(s side then we moved to the other side to have a closer look at Matthias, good choice the view was better and not obstructed by PA and roadies, just the mixing desk, that's where we get the setlist (photo below this page)
Lots of pyrotechnics all along the show with fireworks and flames. The whole band is in fine form, using the whole stage and catwalk like kids running at Disneyland. They have a new drummer replacing James Kottak , who's probably in rehab for his drink addiction.

SCORPIONS are rocking, playing all the hits with only a couple of new songs, too many ballads (5 in all: "Send me an angel", "Holiday" and encore with "Still loving you", "Wind of change" and second encore and last song "When the smoke is going down" but I guess Klaus needs to rest his voice from time to time. Useless drum solo but it's probably to save Klaus 'voice as well.
Apart from that Great setlist and the band is rocking as always.
The band is rocking...
 
...like a hurricane 
Lots of guitar and costunes change for Rudolf

"still loving you"
