Horses by Patti Smith( Recording )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wenn es ein Album gibt, das den Anstoss zur Punk-Revolution gegeben hat, dann ist das ganz sicher Patti Smiths Erstlling <<Horses>>. Zugleich ist es aber der Beweis, dass Punk tiefe Wurzeln in der Rock-Geschichte hat. -- Zu Patti Smiths Ikonen gehören Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix und Keith Richards, und auf <<Horses>> covert sie - auf ihre eigenwillige Weise - sogar <<Gloria>> von Them und den Soul-Klassiker <<Land of 1000 Dances>>. -- Patti Smith - inzwischen selbst eine Ikone der Rockgeschichte - war ursprünglich nicht nur Dichterin (inspiriert von Allen Ginsberg und der literarischen Beat-Bewegung), sie war auch Rock-Fan. Und in ihrer Band spielt mit Lenny Kaye sogar ein richtiger Rock-Kritiker! Trotzdem verkörpert sie das Punk-Ethos perfekt: Do-It-Yourself ist das Motto des Albums, die Gitarren sind verstimmt, und Patti deklamiert mehr, als dass sie singt. -- Und nicht zufällig hat eine Zeile aus dem Titelsong - <<The Boy Looked At Johnny>> - auch den Titel für ein berühmtes Punk-Buch der englischen Musikjournalisten Julie Burchill und Tony Parsons geliefert und wurde später auch Titel eines Songs von The Libertines.
