Other Favorite Artists
Peter Gabriel: Another man with very, very fine ears... and looong production cycles.
Ryuichi Sakamoto: Totally unpredictable, a true genius.
Ennio Morricone: Duck, you Sucker... - aside from Hans Zimmer maybe my all time favorite modern classic composer. Extensive site only in German, but English version will be available soon.
Lisa Gerrard: The brilliant voice of Dead Can Dance as well as Hans Zimmer's Gladiator Soundtrack.
Fun Lovin' Criminals: ...I just know I'm not bad to love - so why the face, girl...? Scum1's extremely laid back site. Make sure that Barry White saves your life, too!
Bootsy Collins: Now, our favourite - the funky guitar. I am motherfunkin' home, baby! Nonesense with a groove - Or: The sound that made it legal for yo armpits to stank...!
Deep Forest: Great and massive site about the French group around the outstanding producer Michael Sanchez.
You may also try this fan site. It is not up to date but still contains some interesting material.
a) Zucchero: He is the most successful musical act in Italy ever. Also, many western stars get a whole lot of their ...err.. inspiration from him:. If you liked Michael Jackson's 'Earth Song' listen to the original: 'Madre Dolcissima' by Zucchero. If you like 'Stranger in Moscow' - try 'Iruben Me'. Seal's latest single 'This Could Be Heaven' also reminds me very much of Zucchero's sound.
b) What makes him so unique? A lot derives from his awesome producer Corrado Rustici. He also has his own site.
Yello: At least during the 80s they were incredible... . Hopefully they can get back to their old form!
Now something problematic: Learn more about advanced sampling techniques and professional groove-programming by listening to Michael Cretu's project 'Enigma'. However, try to avoid listening to the silly pseudo-philosophic lyrics or even his own voice... a pity, really. Imagine him producing a true singer and songwriter!
Pure Musical Horror - Beware!
In case you are wondering what happened to the great German/Austrian musical tradition of Bach and Beethoven, Mozart and Mahler, and why I am so focused on the UK and France when it comes to music, check out Germany's most successful 'musical' act ever (no kidding, sadly!).
This accoustic atrocity is called 'Modern Talking'. For fifteen years and more than ten (thousand? million? ...did somebody say cockroaches?) albums they managed to release the same shitty song again and again - and make it to the top of the charts each time!!
They are the final proof that history DOES repeat itself. However, at least one of them, the blonde guy named Dieter Bohlen who is also the man mainly responsible for these Crimes Against Musicality knows what he is doing from a philosophical point of view, he has a great sense of humor combined with a scary openess and rude habits, as I could find out several times when being forced by my tv-network to interview him (and even see him in concert)...
So, make sure your eyes and especially ears are SHUT before clicking here. You have been warned! As with all external links, I am not legally liable for any damage that might occur to your from clicking...
Since every country has its dark spots in cultural evolution, even the ever neutral Swiss can't be spared. They have bred something called DJ Bobo. He keeps proving with each song that every father should tell his daughter to avoid guys with 'DJ' as their first name!
His lyrics are supposedly English and sound somewhat like:
('Trotzdem' means 'nevertheless' in German). However he is a really friendly and humorous chap who just keeps trying, and he is genuinely dedicated to his 'musically challenged' fans, something that has to be seriously appreciated... uhm as long as the power is turned off, that is.
'I cannot sing, I cannot dance, lets trotzdem be friends! Oh what a pitty, my lyrics are so shitty... etc.'
(Tell me why I am not surprised that the domain of his site is called 'musicaliens' - scary!)
