SUNDAYSUBLIME: Belly - Feed The Tree

Dieser Song mit dem mysteriösen Titel "Feed The Tree" stammt aus dem umwerfenden Debüt-Album "Star" (1993) der Indierockband Belly aus Boston, auf dem alle 15 Songs großartig ist. Gegründet wurde die Gruppe von Tanya Donelly und die Sängerin und Gitarristin spielte auch in den Throwing Muses oder bei den Breeders. Das zweite Album "King" konnte leider nicht mehr an die Großartigkeit des Erstlings anknüpfen und leider auch nicht das 2018 erschienene "Dove", das nach 23 Jahren Pase per Crowdfunding finanziert wurde. Für die bis heute andauernde Strahlkraft der ersten Belly-Songs steht "Feed The Tree" exemplarisch, eine Metapher über Respekt und Engagement, ein Song, der einen nach all den Jahren immer noch geradezu umarmt.


This old man I've talked about
Broke his own heart,
Poured it in the ground
Big red tree grew up and out,
Throws up its leaves,
Spins round and round.
I know all this and more
So take your hat off
When you're talking to me
And be there when I feed the tree
This little squirrel I used to be
Slammed her bike down the stairs
They put silver where her teeth had been
Baby silvertooth, she grins and grins
I know all this and more
So take your hat off boy
When you're talking to me
And be there when I feed the tree
Take your hat off boy
When you're talking to me
And be there when I feed the tree
This old man I used to be
Spins around, around, around the tree
Silver baby come to me
I'll only hurt you in my dreams
I know all this and
I know all this and
I know all this and more
So take your hat off boy
When you're talking to me
And be there when I feed the tree
Take your hat off
When you're talking to me
And be there when I feed the tree

SUNDAYSUBLIME: The Sundays - A Certain Someone

Im Jahr 1990 erscheint das Debüt-Album der Indie-Dreampop-Band The Sundays: Es heißt "Reading, Writing And Arithmetic" und bezieht sich nicht nur auf die schulischen Grundfertigkeiten Lesen, Schreiben und Rechnen, sondern auch auf die Heimatstadt der Musiker, Reading in Berkshire. Die Koordinaten der Musik sind damit gelegt, britische Melancholie trifft auf einfache, aber wesentliche Melodien. 10 perfekte Songs, zwischen The Smiths-seligen Gitarrenläufen und dem strahlenden Gesang von Harriet Wheeler, den man als "Missing Link" zwischen den Cocteau Twins und den Cranberries beschreiben könnte. All das macht diesen Erstling zu einem kleinen Klassiker und federleichten Juwel und den Track "A Certain Someone" zu einem sublimen Sonntagssong.


 

Live your life, have your say
Read your stars, day by day
If I could have anything in the world for free
I wouldn't share it with anyone else but me
Oh, live your life, go your way
And I said oh no
Live your life, stake your claim
Wash your clothes, change your name
Ooh, and I said oh, no, no
If I could have anything in the world for free
I wouldn't share it with anyone else but me
Ooh, ah, you're too twisted by half, but that's far enough
So live your life, build a home
And fill it full of flowers and a bottle of old cologne
Yeah, if I could have anything in the world for free
I wouldn't share it with anyone else but me
Except perhaps a certain someone
Except perhaps a certain someone
Except perhaps a certain someone
Just to be shown another way out
You're too twisted by half, but that's far enough
Oh, I'd be careful living in a block of flats
And I never take the lift to the top
No I never take the lift to the top
Ah, you're too twisted by half
But that's far enough
Take a swim round, take a look down
I'll never believe what we've found
We figured it out, we figured it out
We lived in a house, in a cold room

Sublime im Dezember 19: UNDERCOVER!














… wir packen dann mal wieder unsere Cover.

Die Undercover-Bandite Ayli und Miss Shapes haben wieder einiges Kurioses aus der Welt der Coverversionen aufgestöbert, in der Shoegazer in anderen Genres wildern, Popsängerinnen diverse Indiehymnen interpretieren, Dreampopper sich an hartem Heavy-Metal versuchen oder Elektromusiker an Countrysongs herumbasteln.

Im Ergebnis ist Sublime an diesem Abend also komplett "under cover“ und doch bleibt die musikalische Palette sublim wie immer mit Shoegaze, Indiepop, Electronica, Synthpop, Dreampop und New Wave! Ein Abend zum Schmunzeln, Tanzen und Mitraten, denn es gibt auch etwas Schönes für denjenigen zu gewinnen, der die meisten Lieder in Original und Cover aufschlüsseln kann... ..."come on hide your lovers underneath the covers"...

Wir freuen uns also auf unsere traditionelle sublime Weihnachtsfeier, die wir dieses Jahr wieder zusammen mit dem wunderbaren Tiki Beat feiern und zu der unsere treuen Gäste natürlich wieder bei freiem Eintritt eingeladen sind!
