The Kinks

The Kinks - Arthur - Or The Decline And Fall Of The British Empire (1969)

The Kinks, foi uma banda de rock britânica formada em Londres em 1963 por Dave Davies e Peter Quaife.

A formação original era composta por Dave Davies (guitarra guia, vocais, composições), Ray Davies (compositor principal, guitarrista principal, guitarra rítmica), Pete Quaife (baixo, vocais) e Mick Avory (bateria).

Embora não tenham sido inovadores como os Beatles ou populares como os Rolling Stones, os Kinks foi a mais influente banda da Invasão Britânica e provavelmente a mais representativa do movimento Mod juntamente com o The Who. Durante sua carreira o grupo se tornou infame por seus conflitos, tanto públicos quanto privados, particularmente entre os irmãos Ray e Dave, que frequentemente degringolavam em agressões.

Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire) is a concept album by British rock band The Kinks, released in late 1969. The album followed a rough period for the band, with the commercial failure of the critically acclaimed concept album The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, its follow up single "Plastic Man", and the departure of founding member Pete Quaife. Songwriter Ray Davies constructed the album as the soundtrack to a planned television play, which was never produced but whose storyline had been developed in collaboration with Julian Mitchell. The story is based on Davies' brother-in-law Arthur, who emigrated from England to Australia with his wife Rose in the early 1960's.

The lead character Arthur is a carpet layer, and he and his family's plight in the opportunity-poor setting of post-war England is depicted. The songs describe the England that Arthur once knew, the promise of life in Australia for one of his sons, the emptiness of his superficially comfortable life in his home "Shangri-La", the resolve of the British people in World War II and the death of his brother in World War I, among other things.

Brian Auger

Brian Auger - The Mod Years (1965-1969)

Se souberem ler inglês parabéns pois não achei a biografia do cara em portugês. Mas se ele fez um álbum desse e ainda conhecia o Eric Burdon só posso pedir que puxem!

Brian Auger, born on July 18, 1939 in Bihar, India, is a jazz and rock keyboardist, who has specialised in playing the Hammond Organ. He is considered to be one of the most influential keyboardists of all time. His mentor was famous organist Jimmy Smith.

In 1965 he founded the group Steampacket along with Julie Driscoll, Rod Stewart and Long John Baldry. With Driscoll and the band Trinity he went on to produce several hit singles, notably a cover of David Ackles' Road to Cairo and This Wheel's on Fire, a Bob Dylan song. In the 70s his star began to fade slowly, as he was working on several unsuccessful projects. Modestly successful albums he recorded with blues rock greats like Eric Burdon in the 80s at least showed that he is still an artist to be reckoned with.

The Jam

The Jam - In The City (1977)

The Jam foi uma banda de rock britânica formada em 1976 por Bruce Foxton (baixo), Steve Brookes (guitarra), Rick Buckler (bateria) e Paul Weller (vocais).

Logo no início Brookes saiu da banda, que começou a se apresentar nos arredores de Londres. Em 1977 o Jam assinou um contrato com a Polydor Records e lançou seu primeiro compacto, "In The City", seguido por um álbum homônimo, que misturava influências mod e punk com as composições de Weller e versões de clássicos do R&B.

O Jam não conseguiu muito sucesso nos Estados Unidos, embora fossem superastros em sua terra natal, especialmente depois de tocar no Reading Festival em 1978. Paul Weller decidiu acabar com a banda no final de 1982, enquanto ainda estavam no auge da popularidade.
