Kíla – Alive Beo (2016)

FrontCover1Kíla are an Irish folk music/world music group, originally formed in 1987 in the Irish language secondary school Coláiste Eoin in County Dublin.

The band’s first performance was upstairs in the Baggott Inn, Dublin, and was attended by three people. The original lineup for the band was Eoin Dillon (uilleann pipes), Colm Mac Con Iomaire (fiddle), Rossa Ó Snodaigh (whistle, bones), Rónán Ó Snodaigh (bodhrán), Karl Odlum (bass), and David Odlum (guitar). Colm Ó Snodaigh, the brother of Rónán and Rossa, joined the band before the first recordings were made. Rónán, Rossa, and Colm Ó Snodaigh are sons of publisher Pádraig Ó Snodaigh and artist Cliodna Cussen and are brothers of Irish TD, Aengus Ó Snodaigh. (by wikpedia)

And hee´s their live-album from 2016:

Recorded at different locations around the world, Irish folk band Kíla brings its exciting, raw and emotionally charged music to disc with this live album. From the explosive driving beats of the concert favourite ‘An Tiománaí’ to the tender love song ‘Babymouse’, this album captures Kíla at its majestic best. (clear-spot.nl)

…The group brings an open mind to entirely their own mix of folk, world music, traditional and classic rock. Their instrumentation with pipes, flutes, bodhrán, djembé and conga’s in addition to the more regular instruments provide a special sound. And of course, also, their own, lyric texts. The eight-legged company, previously loaded with The Frames, currently consists of Rossa, Rónán & Colm Ó Snodaigh, James Mahon, Dee Armstrong, Brian Hogan, Dave Hingerty & Seanán Brennan. Some of them have also played with Dead Can Dance.

In addition to their regular work, they also release soundtracks and live albums. As the title of the new album Alive-Beo suggests, it belongs to the last category. The music is recorded in different locations. Perhaps the music is known, the energy they instantly enter, makes it different. Under the headphones, it’s sometimes rushing out as if you’re there. The songs they bring are a beautiful cross section from their discography. Also beautiful is the guest performance of the Polish singer Kayah, who is heard in an old classic of their’s, Seo Mo Leaba, Kíla knows deeply on and off the stage how to make a good impression … (subjectivism.nl)

In other words: Kila is one of Ireland’s finest, innovative, energetic and creative bands abd here´s another fantastic album.

AC/DC – Dutch Radio (Live Amsterdam) (1979)

FrontCover1AC/DC are an Australian rock band formed in Sydney in 1973 by Scottish-born brothers Malcolm and Angus Young. Their music has been variously described as hard rock, blues rock, and heavy metal; however, the band themselves describe their music as simply “rock and roll”.

AC/DC underwent several line-up changes before releasing their first album, High Voltage, in 1975. Membership subsequently stabilised around the Young brothers, singer Bon Scott, drummer Phil Rudd, and bass player Mark Evans. Evans was replaced by Cliff Williams in 1977 for the album Powerage. In February 1980, a few months after recording the album Highway to Hell, lead singer and co-songwriter Bon AC DC 01Scott died of acute alcohol poisoning. The group considered disbanding but stayed together, bringing in Brian Johnson as replacement for Scott. Later that year, the band released their first album with Johnson, Back in Black, which they dedicated to Scott’s memory. The album launched them to new heights of success and became one of the best selling albums of all time.

The major breakthrough in the band’s career came in their collaboration with producer “Mutt” Lange on the band’s sixth studio album Highway to Hell, released in 1979. Eddie Van Halen notes this to be his favourite AC/DC record, along with Powerage. It became the first AC/DC LP to break into the US top 100, eventually reaching No. 17, and it propelled AC/DC into the top ranks of hard rock acts. Highway to Hell had lyrics that shifted away from flippant and comical toward more central rock themes, putting increased emphasis on backing vocals but still featured AC/DC’s signature sound: loud, simple, pounding riffs and grooving backbeats.
