Fixx" start us off with the title track from their 2012 album, “Beautiful
Friction”. Sometimes it seems life passes by quickly and during it, are cycles
we experience that bring us full circle in life’s rhythms and then these cycles
repeat bringing a familiar and Beautiful Friction. An excellent song by one of
my favourite bands of the first vinyl era…The Fixx
The Fixx are Sydney Australia’s “Underlights” with “Now that You’re in Love”
taken from their 2012 self titled EP “Underlights”. I love the Beatle-esque
psychedelic sounds and vocals of this song…to me, this is what real euphoric
Pop sounds like…this is good music.
Cramer better known as “Old Sea Brigade” follows with his 2016 single “All the
Same” A comforting song that builds into a vocal harmony and gets one taping
into a personal state of music sanctuary…the song really resonates to lift ones
spirits; truly one of the best songs in the mp3 age.
the set is Broken Anchor with “Leave the Lights On” taken from their 2012 EP
“Fresh Lemonade” Some times we can be so into what we are doing that we forget
the others that are important in our lives only to realise our mistakes long
after the damage is done…many of us have been there and so this song becomes
meaningful not only in lyric but also in the way it resonates with the
listener. A great song that stirs inner healing…that’s the magic of music.
so, we look back to understand the errors of our ways and see cycles in our
lives that repeat in a beautiful friction…but if you leave the lights on, I’ll know
that you still care…another excellent set of music on the minstral show.
second set is a mixture of Progressive rock, Medieval Celtic Folk and acoustic that
meshes very well together to tell a tale of its own. Nordagust starts us off
with “Make Me Believe” taken from their 2010 album “In the Mist of the Morning”
an excellent progressive rock tune that embraces the magic of the mellotron and
band takes its name from the mythical spirit of the north wind, a spirit that is
said to be extremely wise with insight to all things." A very well chosen
name to be sure.
Nordagust is Serundal with “Lady of the Isles” taken from their 2006 album
of the Isles” is a song about A lady grieving for her lover who is fighting in
the crusades. Alone in the chapel of the castle, she drinks poisoned wine and
lies dying while her lover lies dying in a foreign field. Generations later she
is heard laughing with her lover in the castle grounds, no longer alone, their
happiness is eternal. Magical music by UK duo Maxie and David King.
Serundal is Vancouver BC native Jenna Earle better known as “Ghostess” with
“Soleil” taken from her self titled EP Ghostess.
mysterious acoustic atmosphere sets the stage for a slide build up to seize the
streams of time and carry us through the hurdles of life and land us safely on
the other side. Soleil of course is the French word for “Sun” and through our
lives the sun does carry our spirits throughout our life and then into what
Miller closes the set with the title track to his 2008 album “Angel of My
song that tells the tale of the embattled spirit of a man who’s at the end of
his life and ready to cross over as he lays down tired of fighting the battles
in life only to fight one more to save his soul. A Classic Rick Miller tune.
so, Make Me Believe, Lady of the Isles, Soleil, and Angel of My Soul, is a set
of music on repeat, here on the Minstral Show.
Kerzner starts off our final set with the Title Track of his December 2014
Album “New World”. The song is a reality check on the way we live on this
planet which is greed based, war like and unforgiving. If we all just took a
deep breath and listened to each other patiently, we might find a better way to
live and begin to build a New World. A great song from a brilliant album and
one of my personal favourites.
Skies from Nice France follows with the title track from their November 2017
album, “Return Home” A song of loneliness in the city and the wish to return
home to sanctuary. The song can also be interpreted as the conscious spirit
within wanting to leave this world and travel back to the place from where we
came from before our birth. This is Progressive rock at its finest.
Colin Tench Project follows with “And so, Today” featuring Peter Jones, taken
from their 2016 album “Hair in a G String”. There were a lot of well known
artists who passed away in 2016 and this song encapsulates the sad feelings we
all had in their passing. A song that, to me, will always connect me to those
moments and the ones that followed.
the show is Mark Knopfler with the title track to his 2009 album “Get Lucky” this
song is dedicated to everyone experiencing hard times, we are all in the same
boat but we do win some of the battles and get lucky now and then. Truly one of
the many great songs by Mark Knopfler.
