Karen Anne Carpenter (March 2, 1950 – February 4, 1983)

We like Karen. More, we love Karen. Here voice, the music – the Carpenters Sound.

– Superstar

– Goodbye to Love

she wasn’t made for this business. Strange, absurd to be invited with 21 ! for the TV Show – This is your Life

not really known. In the beginning of the career she played the drums, verrry well. Killertune, timeless, forever

All I can do from the album Ticket to Ride

first TV appearance

Doors open – 9.30pm

10.20pm: Antipop Consortium – 2 CD Mixer, Sampler, Keyboard

with fun, good atmosphere, good sounds, 40 Minutes

01.35am: MF Doom – 1 MacBook

pressed play and started with another guy

boring, no atmosphere, can’t remember if going after third or fourth song, almost mentaly displaced

Zeitlose Perle

Posted in Musik Department Berlin, Uncategorized with tags , , , on 17. Juni 2010 by Musik Department

Das Label Numero Label steht bei uns im Musik Department sehr hoch im Kurs.Endlich mal ein Vertrieb der es auch wagt Grenzen zu überschreiten und seine Hörer zu fordern.Die ersten Reaktionen von Stammhörern/käufern zum neuen Release waren nicht überraschend.Irritation bis Ablehnung.Weshalb?Entgegen sonstiger Gewohnheiten mal kein Rare Groove private press jazzy Blueswhatever release, sondern eine sehr spezielle unentdeckte

“Indieperle“ aus dem Jahre 1983.Drei Franzosen mit Vorlieben für brasilianische Bossa und Samba Melodien nennen sich Antena – benannt nach einem Kraftwerk Song

und basteln ein zeitloses Drumcomputer Akustik Meisterwerk – Camino del Sol

so sieht das LP/CD  Cover bei Numero aus und so

das original Cover der LP, die dann inzwischen eher selten ist, aber als CD auch mit diesem Cover bei uns erhältlich ist.

Zwei Songs wurden von John Foxx und ein String Arrangement von Blaine l. Reininger produziert.Verantwortlich für diesen sehr speziellen Gesangscharme ist Isabelle Powaga.
