Music Diary – 14th October

Welcome to my Music Diary – today for the 14th October!

Dan McCafferty (Nazareth)

Dan McCafferty (Nazareth)

On the 14th October 1946, Scotsman William Daniel „Dan“ McCafferty was born in Dunfermline. In 1968 he founded with guitarist Manny Charlton, bassist Pete Agnew and drummer Darrell Sweet the Hard Rock band Nazareth. The moniker was taken from a city in Pennsylvania, which is mentioned in the first line of The Band’s classic song „The Weight„. In 1970 the band moved to London and one year later the self titled debut album was released. In 1972 the LP „Exercises“ hit the shops and Nazareth did the support for Deep Purple. Shortly after this touring Purple’s bass player Roger Glover produced one year later „Razamanaz„, which features the two UK top ten hits „Broken Down Angel“ and „Bad Bad Boy“. And before the ending of 1973 the next Nazarth album was released: „Loud ‚N‘ Proud“ with the Joni Mitchell’s song „This Flight Tonight“ – this cover became also a hit single for the Scottish Hard Rock band. With „Hair of the Dog“ (1975)  the fanbase became bigger and bigger, because of the rockin‘ title track and the cover of the evergreen „Love Hurts“ – the ballad went platinum in the United States and is still Nazareth’s superhit until today.

 


In 1979 Zal Cleminson (formerly The Sensational Alex Harvey Band) joined Nazareth as a second guitarist and recorded with the band the two albums „No Mean City“ and „Malice in Wonderland“ (1980). Different line-ups happened over the years and in 1999 drummer Darrell Sweet died at the age of 51. Lee Agnew, son of bass player Pete Agnew, replaced Sweet.

On 28th August 2013, Nazareth announced the retirement of singer Dan McCafferty due to ill health. So the latest record „Rock ’n‘ Roll Telephone“ (2014) features Dan’s voice for the last time on a Nazareth release. In February 2014 the new singer was presented: Linton Osborne was chosen with McCafferty’s blessing.

Jethro Tull – Munich (Olympiahalle)(06.10.1989) Ticket © Alex MelomaneI won’t forget this day, because it was my very first Jethro Tull live experience! When I was 9 years old I became a fan and so this concert is still very special to me. Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Dave Pegg, Martin Allcock and Doane Perry were on the „Rock Island“ world tour and stopped in Munich, Olympiahalle. Awesome performance!!!!

CALEXICO/VIC CHESNUTT/LAMBCHOP – Vienna (Szene)

What a bill: Calexico, Vic Chesnutt and Lambchop played that day in Vienna at the Szene! Unfortunately no pictures or videos of that night are on the internet, but in my memories this evening will stay there forever 😉

Calexico played most songs from their latest release „Black Light„.

Vic Chesnutt (November 12, 1964 – December 25, 2009) introduced us his album „The Salesman & Bernadette„.

And Lambchop performed their wonderful mixture of Slow Country and Soul on „What Another Man Spills„.

CHRIS ECKMAN & THE LAST SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN BAND – Hartberg (Schloss)

For this show I travelled to the village called Hartberg in Styria to see Chris Eckman (Walkabouts, Chris & Carla) performing with The Last Side Of The Mountain Band at the Schloss Hartberg (Rittersaal) to perform some songs of the album of the same name. He also played some Walkabouts classics and Neil Young’s „Cortez the Killer“. Before the show I did a very interesting interview with Chris for the Austrian independent radio station B138. You can stream/download this interview totally for free here!

The performance was amazing and after the show we had some fun backstage 😉

WOVEN HAND & HELLDORADO – Bonn (Harmonie)

As a huge Woven Hand fan it was obvious that I will do the trip to Bonn because this performance was filmed for the series of „Rockpalast“ at the Harmonie. And as a bonus the amazing band Helldorado from Norway did the support on that night. The shows were simply outstanding and luckily they broadcasted the recorded gigs on German television.

You have missed this? Really? Shame on you! But hey – you are a lucky bastard because you can watch the performances on internet!

Helldorado – you can stream the broadcasting here!

APOCALYPTICA – Munich (Muffathalle)

Apocalyptica from Finland rocked the Muffathalle in Munich. This show was filmed for a DVD release called „Apocalyptica Live“ which features mostly songs from the masterpiece „Cult„.

P.S.: A few months before that show I did an interview with Eicca Toppinen at the music fair in Cologne – you can watch the video here (just scroll down a little bit)!

TRANSMISSIONARY SIX – Vöcklamarkt (Premysl)

Transmissoinary Six (feat. Terri Moeller from The Walkabouts and Paul Austin) played at the very small Austrian village called Vöcklamarkt. It was a very familiar performance at the Premysl because only a few people found the way to this bar. After the show Terri was so kind and signed my whole Walkabouts and T6 collection – thanks 😉

JETHRO TULL – Munich (Rudi-Sedlmayer-Halle)

Jethro Tull stopped in Munich (Rudi-Sedlmayer-Halle) druing their „Roots To Branches“ tour.

JOE COCKER – Vienna (Stadthalle)

Joe Cocker in Vienna, Stadthalle. Yes, I was there, but to be honest: Just because a friend of mine wanted to be there. So I joined and it was not that bad at all! Especially the female background singers were awesome 😉 I do think this show was part of the „One Sight Of Sin“ tour …

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

29/10/1993:
DEEP PURPLE – Wels (Jubiläumshalle)

Deep Purple in Wels (Jubiläumshalle) with new songs from „The Battle Rages On“ on the setlist. One of the last concerts with Ritchie Blackmore on guitar. It was very sad to see that Ian Gillan and Ritchie Blackmore avoided each other. On the 17th November Ritchie left the band.

29/10/2010:
THE REVEREND PEYTON’S BIG DAMN BAND – Vienna (Porgy & Bess)

The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band live in Vienna at the Porgy & Bess. Awesome perfomence – this band KICKS ASS!!!!! They performed almost any song of their masterpice called „The Wages„.

NICK CAVE – Vienna (Burgtheater)

Nick Cave (solo show feat. Warren Ellis, Jim White and Norman Watt-Roy) live in Vienna at the wonderful Burgtheater. It was obvious that this „band“ didn’t play a long time together – I do think it was the very first time that they performed officialy. The soundcheck was VERY long so the show started one hour late. This performance was part of the 10th anniversary of the „schule für dichtung„, a school for poetry in Vienna for which Nick Cave did some lectures.

Setlist:

The Mercy Seat
Sad Waters
Hallelujah
Into my Arms
God is in the House
There is a Kingdom
Darker with the Day
Gates to the Garden
West Country Girl
So far from me
Little Janey’s gone
The Ship Song
People ain’t no good
As I sat sadly by her Side
Do you love me? (Part 2)
Jack the Ripper
