Morphine: “We treat every tour as the last

No matter how much I (like, by the way, many others) love Morphine’s music, it was not a group from which anyone would expect a contract with a major record label. There are too many factors against: the drug in the title, gloomy sound, lyrics similar to the texts of hipsters, a strange set of instruments (drums, saxophone-baritone and two-string bass … damn it, two-string).

Morphine challenged my and probably my own expectations. I had dinner with the band’s frontman, inventor of double-string bass Mark Sandman, in his, probably, favorite place – restaurant / rock club “Middle East” – in his, apparently, favorite area – at the central square – a month before the album’s release ” Like Swimming. ” He was the fourth in their discography and the first recorded on the famous Continue reading

23 most depressed performers

Royal Blood: everything you need to know about a duet from Brighton

For some couple of years, the British band Royal Blood has grown from “promising” newcomers to one of the largest rock bands. We decided to make a list of interesting facts you need to know about this rock duo from Brighton.

At the very beginning, as children, both members of the group showed the ability to behave on stage (see “boasting”). Ben still keeps a photo of the 18-month-old himself sitting at the installation, while Mike was a wizard child, eager for someone else’s attention. The next trick will be the release of the very hit album “Royal Blood”.

What is more surprising, Mike grew up at the age of 16 under the Christian church. After his 16th Continue reading
