The Kinks: Something else by The Kinks

Pye Records, 1967

Ray Davies, vocalista, guitarra, lletrista i compositor de The Kinks , grup britnic de pop dels 60s integrat per ell, el seu germ Dave (guitarra i cors), Mike Avory (bateria) i Pete Quaife (baix), definia aix la indumentria que lluen quan eren Els Raros (The Kinks):  Combinvem el look de Robin Hood amb els complements de cuir dels protagonistes de la srie televisiva The Avengers (coneguts aqu com Los Vengadores). Per no era la seva estrafolria pinta el que diferenciava The Kinks dels seus contemporanis, sin  la seva msica. El 1966 mentre la resta de grups britnics rebien limpacte de lexplosi psicodlica,  Ray Davies canviava la lisrgia per la introspecci i la descripci morda del temps que li havia tocat viure i donava  al rhythmnblues  un to british al combinar-lo amb power-pop, pub-rock i music-hall.

Llbum Something else by the Kinks (1967), s la culminaci del gir musical que The Kinks van comenar amb Face to face (1966)  i on trobem, comenant per lirnic ttol noms The Kinks podien posar a un disc excel.lent un nom tan modest com Quelcom ms dels Kinks-  perles com aquestes: David Watts s una can foteta sobre els repel.lents golden boys mai una sl.laba fa havia sonat tan desdenyosa-,  Death of a clown s un decadent retrat circenc que reposa, igual que les llampades psicodliques de Lazy old sun, la vodevilesca  End of the season i les pinzallades bossa de No return , sobre un entramat de delicades texturas.

La barroca Two sisters s un sarcstic estudi de la gelosia fraternal, Situation vacant explica com lambici duna sogra brillantment expressada amb apunts de piano i hammond- es carrega un matrimoni, la sentimental Afternoon Tea paladeja els plaers del te i el balandreig de la melodia militar de Tin Soldier man fa impossible no seguir la can xiulant. Tanca llbum la clssica Waterloo sunset, que descriu la trobada de dos amants al pont de Waterloo durant la posta de sol i que ressalta laire melanclic de Something else by the Kinks. Benvinguts a Daviesland.

Dr. Helen, this spam-reporting seems to have been a recent cocnerted attack targetting blogs which post Obama frequent critiques.My own blog, Sundries, as I informed Glenn privately, was one of the blogs so targetted late 31 July. I asked for a review on August 1, and it was unlocked the same day as your own.A fellow blogger left a comment that his own blog experienced the same problem, and only on Googling, did he realise it might be Obama-related.You can read the June blogpost here:There are also serious repurcussions to one's blog, if one doesn't ask for a review of the situation within 20 days (say, for example, you go on holiday and don't log in during that time -- your entire blog would be summarily deleted!).This is more than just an inconvenience. It's intimidation.As I wrote Glenn, I'm willing to form some kind of coalition of bloggers who have been targetted because of perceived or genuine anti-Obama posts.Glad you and others are up and running again, too.Cheers,Victoria

vbspurs has dipped one toe too many in the pinraoaa pool. post over at Castle Argggh! explains what happened quite lucidly.There are three major no-sweat blog hosting systems. One of them is Blogger. Another is Wordpress, and until I read some of the comments here, I had heard few negative comments. The third is Typepad, by the same folks who brought you Movable Type (what I use). All three offer simplicity and a "free" blog. All three similarly suffer from a common issue: if there's something wrong with the main server, everyone's out of luck, as reflected in Bloggers' new hyper-sensitive filter.I would say the major difference is that Wordpress and Movable Type offer the ability to run a blog on one's own domain (c. $25/year to maintain the name, $5-$10/month for a base web-host package), offering a great degree of self-sufficiency. Not that much money, really. On the other hand the blogger is obligated to install and maintain the software on their own, although many major hosting companies offer support. I know that Hosting Matters has been quite helpful to me, figuring out the occasional glitch. I suppose the first question is: is this recent snafu a good reason to move off of Blogger? Professor Althouse (for example) seems content with her setup.If you do migrate, both Wordpress and Typepad seem to offer good service. I lean to Typepad mainly because I'm use to Movable Type. I agree very much with Teresa. I had been having problems with my MT 3.3 setup, and tried to upgrade to 4.0 in April. Utter and complete disaster, even though the scripts should have made it "automagic." Feh.br549: I avoided that by not installing SP3 when the upgrades wizard offered it. I had already heard too many horror stories. Is it possible to uninstall it via Start/Settings/Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs/Windows XP software updates? Don't know if that would fix it, but I thought it might help.

Disc excellent i crtica excellent. Una bona recomanaci per apropar-se a una de les bandes ms interessants de la histria de la msica pop. Per als que ja coneguin The Kinks, un recordatori de tornar a sentir la seva discografia. Plaer sense lmits.
