Boogie Funk aficionados have been looking forward to this reissue for a long while, especially considering that the original pressing is quite expensive and obviously hard to find.
These two albums were heavily influenced by a trip he made to North America, where he Alec Mansion - Alec Mansion for the first time The Whispers, Shalamar, and George Benson. Growing up he was classically trained as a pianist, but upon arriving in the U. For the occasion, I had the privilege to talk with Mr.
Mansion and was able to ask him a few questions regarding this accomplishment. Thank you! I made those songs with the excitation Alec Mansion - Alec Mansion all the new possibilities that were coming with the new technologies at the time. My country is so Israels Son - Powderfinger & Silverchair - Across The Great Divide Tour (DVD) that we have no other possibility than shouting loud to be heard, and laughing about ourselves!
As you probably know, Tintin, Magritte, the Smurfs, and the surrealistic plastic arts have always been something written in our DNA… I guess I must be Belgian to feel as excited as Alec Mansion - Alec Mansion am about those early productions! He always took the time to think and talk about my music as if it was his own stuff. We did music. To me, good harmonies with a creative melody on a serious beat that gives you an exciting feeling is the only thing that matters.
It has no time period, just the power of pleasure. Just to have the pleasure to realize that some part of my feelings can touch them too. Since my first inspiration came from there, it seemed as if my songs where flying back to their origin. Marc Moulin exceptionally wrote the lyrics on that song. My girlfriend at the time had just left me, but I did not have any lyrics about it. Marc called me one day from Brussels, I was in Montrealand told me the words on the phone. In the lyrics, he was alluding to Verlaine.
I loved it immediately because it was a song written like newspaper article. Marc was so clever…. For every song, I was coming with a complete demo tape made on a Fostex 4-track cassette full of noise where all the ideas of arrangement were already present. The work in the studio was to search for new sonorities and productions ideas like live guitars, changes of structure etc. Very often, I came with guide vocals and with no lyrics.
Marc would propose lots of new ideas and even played some parts, and Dan would concentrate on the sounds and the mixing.
Preorder Album. Walla P — July 6, How does it feel? What made Belgium so funky? I can tell you that your records are being played in all parts of the world, from Los Angeles to Tokyo, Montreal to Berlin.
Did you ever expect this kind of buzz? How was that record perceived back then? The best thing would be to do a tour with my band to meet them and share our love for music. How is that possible? Were you there when they were making the instrumentals Native Mambo - Native Steel Drum Group* - Steel Drums were they ready for you to just Alec Mansion - Alec Mansion the vocals? Thank you as well!
