Aleka’s Attic - In The Corner Dunce

Aleka's Attic were an alternative folk/rock band from Gainesville, Florida, formed by River Phoenix and his sister Rain.he original line up of Aleka's Attic included River as lead singer and played guitar; his younger sister Rain sang, but, contrary to many incorrect reports, did not play keyboards in the band (although she did play various percussion, such as tambourine); Tim Hankins played viola; Josh McKay was the bass player; Josh Greenbaum, a friend of River’s from Florida, was the drummer. About choosing the band's name, "Aleka's a fictional poet philosopher who gathered friends in his attic to discuss his ideas, when Aleka dies they form a band to share his beliefs with others through music". River was offered to sign a two-year development deal with Island Records to develop the band and record a marketable album, which was not accomplished in the time allotted due to River's ongoing film work schedule. So Island, retaining the option to continue or not, opted out of the deal based on the non-marketability of River's newer material. River then decided to record an album independently for the band. The group disbanded in 1993.

Nirvana - Sappy

"Μπορείς να ζεις χωρίς να κοιμάσαι καθόλου,επειδή φοβάσαι ότι αν αποκοιμηθείς θα χάσεις το σώμα και την ψυχή σου?Μπορείς να ζεις με την αίσθηση ότι είσαι η σκιά κάποιου άλλου και να νομίζεις ότι υπάρχεις μόνο στη φαντασία ενός μικρού αγοριού που είναι προορισμένο να γίνει rock star,το καταραμένο είδωλο μιας ολόκληρης γενιάς?Μέσα από τα μάτια του Homer Boda Alienson,του φανταστικού φίλου του αρχηγού των Nirvana,στον οποίο μάλιστα απηύθυνε και το αποχαιρετιστήριο γράμμα του πριν αυτοκτονήσει,μεταφερόμαστε στο ποιητικό και καταστροφικό σύμπαν του Kurt Cobain.........." Τομάζο Πίντσιο,"Kurt Cobain,Καταραμένο είδωλο"

"The Black Angel's Death Song" is a song by the Velvet Underground, from their 1967 debut album The Velvet Underground & Nico. It was written by Lou Reed and John Cale. In a footnote to the lyrics, Lou Reed wrote: "The idea here was to string words together for the sheer fun of their sound, not any particular meaning. According to Cale, Sterling Morrison refused to play bass on the song because he disliked having to play it on "Venus in Furs",hence, Cale overdubbed the bassline while Morrison stuck to his usual guitar. In late 1965 Al Aronowitz arranged for the Velvets to play at the Café Bizarre in Greenwich Village for a fortnight in December 1965;[5] while there they played a "furious" version of "Black Angel's Death Song"; the manager ordered them not to play that song again, to which the band responded by playing it again "with a vengeance", and were sacked.

Sleaford Mods - Discourse

Jason Williamson – “Discourse chapters that dark silence in the vaults of the unskilled worker. The acceptance of all that is horrible and endured. Moments of connection between living vessels are rare but sometimes they do pass through the wire and lives are understood for a flicker of a second.”

Mudhoney - Good Enough

Mudhoney is an American alternative rock band. Formed in Seattle, Washington in 1988 following the demise of Green River, Mudhoney's members are singer and rhythm guitarist Mark Arm, lead guitarist Steve Turner, bassist Guy Maddison and drummer Dan Peters. Original bassist Matt Lukin left the band in 1999. Mudhoney's early releases on the Sub Pop label, particularly their debut single "Touch Me I'm Sick" and the Superfuzz Bigmuff EP, were massively influential on the Seattle music scene. More than almost any other release of the era they inspired the dirty, high-distortion sound that would become grunge. Later on, Mudhoney also mixed heavy blues rock and punk rock into their sound at various stages. Although the band has found little commercial success during its long career, which has yielded nine studio albums, it has inspired countless grunge and alternative rock musicians.
