Colonel Red - Blue Eye Blak (2005)

British Modern Soul, What Else?!

Who are your favourite singers?:
For his emotional and soulful voice: Marvin Gaye. For his sheer magic and musical story-telling genius: Stevie Wonder. For his extremely rare gift of expression: D'Angelo. For his sheer awesome sound and power: Ottis Reading. The most amazingly powerful singer 2 bless us: Aretha Franklin and lastly the most charismatic spiritual brave true and devoted individual: Bob Marley.

What influence has your upbringing had on your music?
An extremely positive one in terms of the music I listened to. The culture coming mostly from my father, the politics that come from being a black mixed race family growing up through the 70’s and 80s in Britain. School in a predominantly Irish, Asian and Black area. Influences ranging from Muhammad Ali to Bob Marley to Malcolm X to the IRA to Gandhi, all of these figures were important to all of us at some point and many more. To be on the street when I was a kid it was important to know what was what and to have your own styled identity was to be respected where as now I feel this quality has been lost in the kids doing their best to fit in with each other. I can still remember the feeling of embrace at being different! -Barto-

Yup and now the link work as always.

Pour la petite histoire j'avais chercher se skeud comme un malade sur le net, Blue Eye Black est une des toute meilleurs track du premier Brownswood Bubblers. Gilles Peterson met en avant des artistes qui sont déjà bien établi mais ça nous permet d'acquérir ou de pouvoir acquérir très vite, de bêtes de skeud et de pas être comme des cons à guetter les myspace à voir si le gars sont qqchose pour de vrai. 'fin bof du coup c'est sur mon propre blog que je finis par trouver le skeud que j'avais arreter de chercher... Be blogger my friend -Remo-

Hello. Often the Internet can see links like [url=http://www.whitehutchinson.com/aboutus/]Buy cialis without prescription[/url] or [url=http://www.rc.umd.edu/bibliographies/]Buy cialis without prescription[/url]. Is it safe to buy in pharmacies such goods?
