Henry Rollins Stereo Blues / #loudnotes

Stamani vorrei lasciare la parola ad Henry Rollins, iniziare la giornata di Loud Notes con il Rollins pensiero, espresso alla solita maniera diretta e senza fronzoli, brandito come una simpaticissima e affilatissima accetta davanti al suo intervistatore, Mike Ayers di Rolling Stone.

Perché sì, insomma dai, quanno ce vo' ce vo'.

Potete leggere l'intervista completa, nella quale Henry parla anche del nuovo disco di David Bowie e delle due reunion dei Black Flag, sul sito di Rolling Stone, o accontentarvi della traduzione dei suoi momenti fondamentali fatta per voi da Rockol.

- Did you follow any of the bigger things, like Daft Punk or "Blurred Lines"?
- I've never heard Daft Punk; I've never heard a track of theirs in my life. They're the two guys with motorcycle helmets on?

- Yeah, they dress up like robots.
- You know what, you will take this any way you will. That to me is like Rolling Stone music. It's the shit that's in your magazine. And it's like, that world. . . I'm so glad that you all have found your people, but that world is so alienating to me. Anything that gets on the Grammys or the American Music Awards. . . like, was Miley Cyrus on the cover of your magazine?

- She was.
- Yeah, see, I like real music. John Coltrane's my favorite musician, what am I doing reading Rolling Stone? You know what I mean?

- You don't give a shit about her.
- Well, I don't. She's part of that bigger world of music I was just talking about. All of it to me is like, long may it wave, I don't have anything against anyone doing their thing, but it's just not for me. And Robin Thicke, is that the guy? I have no idea what he sounds like. I've never heard Kelly Clarkson, I just, I live in a different musical world.

 
Ecco. 

Ora, qualsiasi cosa stiate facendo, lasciate perdere tutto per un quarticello e alzate il volume! Merita!

  1. Rollins non delude mai, riesce a dire cose intelligenti, schiette, sincere. Leggerei una sua intervista a settimana, se potessi.

    1. Esatto: intelligenti e sincere, è un piacere leggerlo.

      E poi, parlando delle reunion dei Black Flag(s):
      "But as far as the politic of all of it, what's going on with all of those people, I stayed well away from it. I'm looking forward to 2014 and what will come"

      Come fai a non amarlo?
