posted November 19, 2014, 12:43 am by CharlesMartel | Filed Under Recommendations from the Writer's Mind, Video | comment Leave a Comment


19th November 2014 – Part 57

So, which artists have the most entries on this list? There are 604 separate artists (or composers) on the list. Of these, there are 97 artists with two entries, 31 with three, 18 with four, 11 with five and five with six entries. However, it may surprise you to find some of the inclusions and, more likely, some of the omissions among the more prolific bands in the list. Here are those artists which (will) have the largest number of tracks included –

Led Zeppelin – 18
The Rolling Stones – 16
Fischer-Z – 12
The Waterboys – 9
The Chameleons – 8
The Cure – 8
Lloyd Cole & the Commotions – 8

And seven have seven entries each – The Beatles, Big Country, Catherine Wheel, David Bowie, the Kinks, Ludwig van Beethoven and the Psychedelic Furs. Incredibly, none of these are American and only one is not British – Beethoven.

And now into the top 5.

Interview: Rachael Yamagata

For anyone perusing singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata’s bio mentioning she “named her label after a walking fish”, “got run over by a bull” and did a video “in full bunny attire” on her website, what’s not to like? Charming fans with a mix of highs and lows since her first classic release ‘Happenstance’ 10 years ago, she’s written many heartwrenching relatable songs, all the while being able to poke fun at herself live. Currently wrapping up her recent tour with opening acts Hemming and The Dove and The Wolf, celebrating the release of her debut ‘Happenstance’ and previewing songs from her Pledge Music funded next album, it’s been a good year.

When viewing the jammed schedule for Red Bull Sound Select’s #30DaysinLA, I circled Lucky Day 13 as this lineup featured three acts too good to pass up. Others agreed as it sold out immediately once tix went onsale, requiring a change in venue. In Vegas earlier in the day for a music event, I got off the plane back in LA and headed straight to The Echoplex for a guaranteed rawkus evening of fun featuring Thurz, Mystery Skulls and Run The Jewels.

You might recall I connected with Thurz and El-P last December at a prior Red Bull event and so much transpired since then. Both released buzzworthy music (with Thurz dropping ‘Designer EP’ and El ‘RTJ2’) so we’d def hear dope new tracks. Thurz (peep him on Revolt TV this week) began the night with this new music and full live band in tow, even rocking “Tonite” with LA legend DJ Quik. Mystery Skulls kept the night moving with dance music.

Sheppard live

Australian band Sheppard finally arrived in Italy on the 12th of November and it was a blast. The band that conquered Italy with their hit “Geronimo”, charmed the audience with their songs from “Bombs Away” at Tunnel in Milan. The show went on smile after smile, selfie after selfie and “Grazie Milano!” after “Grazie Milano!”. Song after song, the audience gave back to these six amazing artists all the energy given to the people who continued to sing and dance to their catchy melodies.

  • Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 56

    posted November 12, 2014, 12:30 am by CharlesMartel | Filed Under Recommendations from the Writer's Mind, Video | comment Leave a Comment


    Last week we looked at the distribution of the tracks in this list according to decade. This week we will look at a geographical distribution. The 1000 tracks come from artists (or composers in the case of classical music) from 27 countries. Of these, the following ten have the greatest number of entries –

    United Kingdom – 544
    United States – 291
    Canada – 26
    Australia – 22
    Germany – 22
    Ireland – 21
    France – 18
    Russia – 10
    Norway – 6
    Italy- 5
    Sweden – 5

    Of the rest, three countries have four entries; one has three entries; three have two entries and the rest have only one each. Again, this confirms the importance of geography in defining taste because, despite the fact that the United States has by far the biggest output in terms of recorded music of any nation on Earth, it is music from the UK which predominates in my list.

    And now we are in the top ten – all five are British (as are, in fact, the entire top ten).

    MEDIMEX: Italy’s Music Innovation Expo

    logo14

    More or less one week ago, I was still living one of the most interesting professional experiences I ever lived. I’d heard a lot about “Medimex” but I never had the chance to take part in it until now. When my colleagues asked me to go with them to Bari to attend Medimex, I didn’t think about it twice. “So what is this Medimex I am talking about?”, you will ask; you’re right, I didn’t explain it on purpose. I’m talking about the most important exposition about music innovation we have in Italy.

    A three day Music Salon for an audience of music lovers and an international market fair addressed to Italian and international music operators. Also this year, Medimex will offer its visitors a wide exhibition area, live music shows, meetings with big artists, panels, conferences and a number of activities to get in contact with the different aspects of the music word while giving artists and operators an opportunity to meet and exchange their views on the future of the music industry. A surface of 8,000 m2 will host the market fair with its many stands where exhibitors will display the most innovative instruments and music services, 4 stages for showcases and the concerts of some of the most interesting artists of the Italian and international music scene and 5 conference halls for meetings, panel sessions, conferences and presentations where artists, music innovation representatives, journalists, experts, and the most influential voices of the music industry will discuss about music. Moreover, as has been the case for the previous editions, the fourth edition of the Puglia-based Music Salon will offer music professionals a number of networking activities as well as business meetings and conferences with the participation of representatives of major festivals and Italian and international agencies and institutions.

    Black Tusk

    BLACK TUSK Bassist Jonathan Athon Passes Away
    “It is with deep regret and saddened hearts that we must tell you that Athon passed away this morning from injuries sustained from his motorcycle accident. Doctors told us that he suffered irreparable brain damage shortly after the accident. He has been in a coma and sustained by life support until now. As per his wishes, we removed Athon from his life support systems and his organs will be donated. His body will be cremated and a memorial is being planned for family and friends in Savannah. He was 32 years old and will be forever missed. Thank you all for your support during this devastating time for us, it would have made him proud.”

    Interview: Priory

    As a music fan, there are few things better than getting an unknown ridic catchy song stuck in your head, discovering who it’s from and finding out there’s cool people behind it. Thus is the case for me with Portland based Priory’s Brandon Rush and Kyle Sears. As soon as I heard their ‘Weekend’ (and yes, it’s the weekend now) EP title track, I needed to know more. Out on the road through the fall, they’ve shared some dates with The Kooks and some upcoming with White Arrows, punctuated by their appearance at Vegas’ “Life Is Beautiful” fest I attended. Capping off a great year, they’re signed to Warner Bros, where Priory’s fits in with a standout 2014 of music releases, and have come quite a long way.
