Quadriphonia (1979)
Franc Roddam director/ mod movie / The Who
"I don’t wanna be the same as everyone else. That’s why I’m a Mod, see?"
I like the melancholia in this movie. And i luv Brighton.
this is not a perfect movie about rock, but it’s perfect for me.
"We are the mods ! We are the mods !"

Sam Cooke, prince of Soul.
"Bring it on home to me" Live at the Harlem Square Club, 1963.
You have to listen this one: this is SOUL, man. Sam Cooke sends chills down my spine…

I remember this song opening ALI from Michael Mann, David Elliott was singing in place of Sam Cooke. Not a Will Smith’s fan, but he was Ali…

I finished the book "Just Kids", from Patti Smith, about her story with Robert Mapplethorpe.
This is the Legend, but this is also naive and romantic. I like the candor of these souvenirs. But this is the New York i would like to live.

The San Francisco Call newspaper building in flames after the April 18, 1906. Earthquake.

I remember…

in the 90s, Spiral Tribe. Sound system travellers in the UK, having fun in Europe with free festivals, free party. Wearing hoodie and baggy jean. Techno hardcore. Days and days.

Same old same old.

Rust & Bone - Ost

Just saw the last Jacques Audiard's movie Rust & Bone (De rouille et d’os).

The soundtrack will feature both original scores composed by Alexandre Desplat, but also a few songle performed by various artist including John Cooper Clarke’s “Evidently Chickentown”.

Matthias Schoenaerts is just amazing in this movie. I just have to watch "Bullhead".

Hulme, Manchester. An area that I have lived in for the last 2 years, is about to undergo dramatic change as MMU expands its territory in to Hulme through the creation of Birley Fields Campus. It will accomodate over 5000 new students. The area has a great sense of community spirit, with a friendly and bohemian vibe, many of the people here drive for greener living and a communal and social way of life. Sadly there is a worry and resentment here, despite the business potential but knowing the dominating impact of Manchester’s student population, Hulme’s residents are sad to see the loss of the natural space that adds greenery to the otherwise concrete landscape, whilst also housing many birds and animals. This development is a classic example of corporate dominance over the people, and demonstrates the true ownership students have over the city. These images document the landscape prior to the multi million pound development and refer to the transitional stage it sits in.

Paris, Mai 1968. Jean-Luc Godard.

“Now my name is Mca I’ve got a license to kill I think you know what time it is it’s time to get ill. Now what do have here an outlaw and his beer I run this land you understand I make myself clear.”

—   Rest in peace, Adam Yauch, my favorite Beastie Boy, MCA.
Sad, so sad. A part of my life just died.
