What´s Up Yespeople?
Its been a while since...God how I missed this place.
I went through some dramatic changes in my life, no, i didn´t stop the coffee+Cigarettes routine...maybe someday. I have a band now, been workin with graphic design and as a translator/interpreter, freelance work really. What changed was my perception of life, my taste in music and my work, went from burocratic workaholic to being my own boss and sticking it to the man. Last year was a "back to the roots" year, I didn´t grow up listening to prog (only Yes), I was raised on Alternative rock, Stoner/Doom, grunge and Industrial. So I decided to revisit my teenage years and give heavy/alternative/sludgy/experimental music a second chance, and I fell in love with those bands again. Been listening to Sunn O))), OM, Deftones, Kyuss, Cathedral, Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle, Earth, Type O Negative, Electric Wizard, Carcass, Pelican and some other stuff. Stoner/Doom is what I really like and its the music I play with my band, well, actualy a duo, just Bass & Drums. Madness! Yeah its a challenge, its sounds like Om meets Electric Wizard meets Pelican. If you´re not familiar with those, check out the videos on my post.
OM - "At Giza" (Early Pink FLoyd-era fanatics should love this track, this is just bass and drums, but its sounds like a 4 piece band)
Electric Wizard - "Mountains of Mars"
Pelican - "Bliss In Concrete"
Earth - "The Bees Made Honey In the LIon´s Skull"
Besides that, my Yes flame is again buring bright, don´t care if 90´s material is weaker than 70´s, I´m not worried about new material, if they decide to release all good, if not, its all good as well. YES is YES, with new material or not. And we don´t need new material or solo projects to discuss Yes music, Yestalk needs more love and more action!
