Gig of the month : January and Bukowski

:) Yeah a smile. This is what you can see on my face since the other night. I discovered Bukowski a few years ago and listened to it since then. Then was expected the new album for a long time. It finally came out, a bit different from the first one but still very good. Now I just needed to see the guys perform live.

This is what we did the other night. We had our tickets since September and could not wait anymore. One regret only though is that they were just the warm-up band for Lofofora, whose music is not really my cup of tea. When we arrived the room was almost empty and we could not believe it. Their music is really good especially for a french band so why weren't they more people there?!?

They arrived 5 minutes later on stage and I just wished they would sing 2 songs :
 Bukowski – Mysanthropia
Bukowski – Slugs and Bats

Which they did :)
The bass player is a nut job which made the whole thing even better. The guy was screaming, joking with the audience and even jumped in the crowd at the end and we all believed he would fall because the last three ladies who were at the end were so tiny and weak...but he finally made it :) The singer and guitar player is way more quiet but I assume it is not easy to find your place when your brother is such a crazy boy :) With such a voice we were expecting a very charismatic guy but he is very humble and shy, so it was quite surprising.

My fave member of the band is the drummer and I was so disappointed not to catch his sticks :/ But well things turned out great as Adrien managed to talk to the guys and to get us a signed poster :

Yes Adrien is a real groupie. Funny for a boy I thought :)
If everything goes well I should go and see them in Nantes again in about a month. Awe-some!

If just like me you watched Misfits you know Iwan Rheon (aka Simon). But maybe you do not know that not only is he an actor but that he is also a singer.
 Iwan Rheon – Changing Times
and yeah it does not really hurt looking at him either

Andrew Bird will soon be back with a new album but we have to wait til March 6th.
Some people are happy they is a teaser (actually there are two) but now i'm even more impatient to get to hear what his new production is.

She remains the Greatest Lady to me. Her voice, her energy is something I haven't found in anyone else.
Ella was also very good at scat.

For me and for you, a live performance :

My friend Seb struck again by sharing this with his friends. So I'm sharing it here until he decides to join Spritz and to share things here himself!

So Peter and Kerry are offering a very nice cover. Personally, I really dislike the original ( but this cover is just awesome :

Asaf Avidan has quite an unsettling voice. I found it hard to combine watching him singing and hearing his voice at the same time. But now it is one of my favorite songs.
