@ Solideo:

As you can imagine with my hang for "weird" music and for hard rock I much appreciate any Celtic stuff being incorportated into Hard Rock (seems to be a notion generally lately, celtic is "en vogue"!?) did not know the band "ELUVEITIE", thx for sharing!

OTOH, "Sirenia" I have come across before, for me they (she?) are/is a "fantasma", a clone, great vid and spectacular, but kind of like "casting bands now have reached hard rock sector"... It is flat IMHO and lacking the "feeling" that I attribute personally to the generic hard rockers (though I rarely share it though I can), cannot describe it better, maybe I am wrong, but thats my take: Hard ROckers that touch me are basically Amateurs, in the best sense of the word...

FOr example, check out this Amateur Tyrolian Folk Music Band and the Black Metal they produce!:

ultra brutal death metal band





 Brede lach



Calm down, just joking, but you get the idea: There is indeed a Tyrolian Folk Band out there that made some crazy hardcore metal tunes out of Johann Strauss, "Blue Danube" etc., cannot seem to find traces on utube though... I just stumbled over this vid by searching for the others, happened to like it  Grijns Very creative the guy who produced it!  champ

Enjoy,

Rattler

JAJAJAJJAJAJA LOOOOOOOOL. was watching the video and I almost break my arse against the chair. Good funny fake oldies machines.

Yes I understand you when you talk about amateurs, they don´t look to be as fresh as desireble, but "a falta de pan buenas son tortas" Sorry I cannot translate that.

Cheers mate

Gianluca Grignani - Mi Historia Entre Tus Dedos (1995) [Subtittled in English]


I like that one a lot also, there also is the Italian version out there if I recall right.

Now, as we are talking Amateurs and always listening to the same music, lets change that for a sec and go poking on what more is out there, hardly recognized by the masses.

In this endeavour I stumbled over a true gem, a Romanian singer - so badly produced that it really becomes good again - that has me deeply impressed with his capacity to be laughing about himself, his immense productivity with obviously a low budget (there are literally hundreds of vids by now) and his intensity in focusing on three genres: Women and me, Rap, and poetry. While he only has a few hits on his many videos, I am sure, starting with this post, this will change soon and he will become a well deserved cult figure. Ladies and Gentlemen, Nicolae Guta:

Fat, with a mustache (that in his newer productions is gone) and a crazy hat, he has an almost southern med quality to him, sometimes he looks Andalus, sometimes more Turkish, which obviously helps in seducing the girls, as can be seen here in the first vid I ever saw of him (but which is of his later, more professional productions). While I do not understand a word, the vid tells the story with verve and humor and clearly enough: Guess who this blonde bride ends up with at her wedding?  Brede lach

NICOLAE GUTA-GIGOLO


More of the "Women and me" genre, he seems to be a kind of Romanian Rattler...  Grijns :

NICOLAE GUTA-LAS SA JUR


NICOLAE GUTA-SUNT FRUMOSUL SATULUI


Listening to him I am never really sure whether I should laugh at the guy or adore him, his voice is actually fairly good, and some of his music hits home. As I have to leave for work, I will post about his (interesting) dance floor stuff later in another post.

Enjoy or not,

Rattler

Here are a few from Utah Phillips, filmed at the Strawberry Music Festival in California's sierra mountains near Yosemite. When I lived in Cali I would go to this Bluegrass festival twice a year (Memorial Day-May and Labor Day-Sept) four days of music in the mountains. Utah was a favorite of mine and was highly approachable as he loved to talk to people as you can see by his style of music.

This next one comes in two parts...
U. Utah Phillips (1 of 7)


U. Utah Phillips - 2



U. Utah Phillips - 3



In this piece you can see he is an activist at heart.

What a sympathetic gentleman!

Reminds me of "Grandpa Elliot", one of the true "amateurs" (a street musician in New Orleans) I mentioned before and have been following for some time (sorry, will stick with that theme for some time to come...  hdbng).

Quote
...a familiar street performer in New Orleans. He is an expert Harmonica player and has a beautiful voice, as you will hear. He can often be found outside the gift shop at Royal and Toulouse Street, but will also play outside of Cafe Du Monde and other places throughout the quarter. He is now legally blind, but is well loved, so he finds help to get around the quarter. Make sure to see him when you go to New Orleans and tip him well. He deserves it...



Amazing Grace


I am almost sure he probably would have stated the same if he had been interested:

Grandpa Elliot Sings If I were a Rich Man in New Orleans


He has hit cult status now, probably because of a special invitation to perform at Dodger Stadium, he hit the 500.000 today in 90% of his vids.

Ok, I seriously do not know where to post it, here or in funny vids, but I decide this thread is the right place.

This is primarily for Solideo (though he probably knows it), then 2nd for Sky. The reason is they understand Spanish and simply can jump to the last vid in this post (if the vids do not appear, as we again! have reached the youtube allowance for vids on one page, simply click on the link below it (title)).

As for all others, as it is marvelous, wonderful, real Spanish and brings to the point why I live here (and it even is on topic forumwise!), you will have to bear with me for a sec a I have to explain the background else you won´t understand what you are seeing/hearing:

Bkgnd 1: It all starts out with the worldwide hit song "Macarena", now 15 years old, by "Los del Rio". "The song everybdy knows but nobody admits", really not one of my favorites (actually I used to hate it ferociously and find it quite frightening that so many ppl had it 60 weeks on #1, it beat Elvis and everybody else in history .- though it is fun to dance in fiestas when you have a little blood left in the alcohol Smiley ), but it was the "Summer Hit" in ´94 (there is one every year Smiley ) and still today there is not one popular fiesta where it is not sung or danced.

If you ever want to learn the dance moves that here everybody between 5 and 80+ knows and dances in synchronity, check out this vid:

Macarena


Live, at parties, it looks like this (here, for you guys convinience, young girls, but at the popular dances you have maybe 100 ladies up to their 80´s dancing the same, all in unison - with rather frozen faces here in Mallorca, "...going through the moves" and you will never beat them at it Smiley )

bailando la macarena en la azalea


Bkgnd 2: Ok, now to the lyrics:

It actually is not very important to know the lyrics as they are made by such deep thinkers that we cannot really follow anyway, but let me focus on the central part:

Quote
Dale a tu cuerpo alegría macarena
que tu cuerpo es pa' darle alegría y cosa buena.
dale a tu cuerpo alegría macarena.
eh, macarena. Ay!



This part translates to (more or less):

Quote
Give your body joy, Macarena
because your body is for bringing happiness and good things.
Give your body joy, Macarena.
eh, macarena. Ay!



If you ever want to learn all the very complicated lyrics, here you have them (dancefloor version):

Los Del Rio - La Macarena ( Full Spanish Version with Lyrics


OK, enough background, why do I post all that stuff?

Check out this ad vid, it is in Spanish (mainly), but even not speaking the language, with above lesson and following quick summary you will get the idea:

- Someplace on the world. UN soldiers, Spanish and Brits working together (well...  whistle). Shift to the Spanish tent... Post arrives from home, brought in by the Brits: A fairly recent pic of the kid, the soccer paper of last month (Marca! Smiley ), and then, what every Spanish soldier longs for, food from home (Ham!)... OH, what is that? Where is my ham? Looks like the Brits robbed it and replaced it... with *pudding!*

Time to swing into action, get the ham back from the Brits! ...But what do you do when you do not know English and your adversary hasn´t even ever heard of Spain?  Discover for yorself:

Daily Struggle for Spanish UN soldiers... Smiley


Enjoy, hope you had as good a laugh as myself, what a fright!  champ
