Justin Vernon bekerja sama untuk membuat gitar yang terbuat dari barel Wiski Irlandia Bushmills.

"The 1608," salah satu dari empat gitar yang dibuat oleh Justin Vernon dari Bon Iver dan pembuat instrumen Gordy Bischoff dari tong wiski.

Justin Vernon dari Bon Iver tahu bagaimana memadukan bisnis dengan kesenangan. Vokalis grup indie folk populer baru-baru ini berpasangan dengan temannya dan pembuat instrumen terkenal Gordy Bischoff untuk membuat gitar custom yang terbuat dari — apa lagi? — Tong Wiski Irlandia Bushmills.

Gitar, yang biasa disebut "The 1608" setelah tahun Bushmills memulai bisnis wiski, hampir seluruhnya terbuat dari kayu ek putih asli yang diambil dari tong wiski perusahaan. Gitar ini memiliki tombol volume dan kontrol yang terbuat dari tutup botol wiski; Bischoff juga menambahkan percikan wiski itu sendiri ke dalam humidor gitar untuk memberikan aroma otentik pada gitar.

The 1608, salah satu dari empat gitar yang dibuat melalui kemitraan, sedang dilelang secara online dengan semua hasil pergi ke Pusat Seni Komunitas Confluence di kota asal band Eau Claire, Wisconsin. “Tujuannya adalah mengembalikan seni ke dalam peta di Eau Claire,” kata Vernon. “Terlalu banyak seniman dari daerah ini yang harus pergi karena apa yang ingin kami lakukan dengan hidup kami tidak mungkin dilakukan di sini. Itulah Confluence Project: membangun pusat yang dapat menjadi inti seni di Eau Claire.”

Lelang akan ditutup pada 1 November, dengan penawaran saat ini di $8.100. Kita mungkin harus mengundurkan diri untuk membeli wiski Bushmills sebagai gantinya.

Reuni

1989 Sunting

Band ini pertama kali mencoba untuk bersatu kembali pada tahun 1989, setelah banyak permintaan dari Tony Gordon, mantan manajer grup dan manajer George pada waktu itu. George setuju untuk mencoba beberapa lagu dengan band lagi, menghasilkan sesi rekaman dan memproduksi lebih dari selusin lagu yang belum dirilis. George, bagaimanapun, lebih bersemangat tentang proyek masa depannya seperti label rekamannya, More Protein, dan proyek rumah asam barunya Jesus Loves You. Reuni yang diusulkan akhirnya dibatalkan.

1998–2000, 2002 Sunting

In 1998, George and Moss put their differences aside and the band reunited to do a reunion tour, kicking off with a performance on Pendongeng VH1. [14] George said about the reunion, "Culture Club's reunion couldn't have come at a better time for rock", adding that, "It's a nostalgia trip, there's no way of avoiding that." [14] The tour was a major success. Greatest Moments, a compilation album based around the pendongeng performance, was released, and went platinum in UK. It included new songs such as "I Just Wanna Be Loved", which hit UK No. 4. [15] [16] However, their new-found success was short-lived and their fifth studio album, Don't Mind If I Do, released in 1999, peaked at No. 64 in the UK. [17] It included minor UK hits in "Your Kisses Are Charity" (UK No. 25) and "Cold Shoulder" (UK No. 43). [17]

The band went on to tour, then reunited again for a 20th anniversary concert in 2002 at the Royal Albert Hall in London. [18] This performance was released on DVD the following year. [18] Culture Club then became inactive again, largely due to George's successful DJ career.

2006 Edit

In 2006, original members Craig and Moss tried to launch a new tour with another lead singer, as George and Hay had declined to tour. Early that year, the band's record company placed an ad for a lead singer to ". take part in a 2007 World Tour and TV Series." The new singer, Sam Butcher was selected because of his own personality, "not a Boy George lookalike." After watching a video on MySpace, George described the singer who replaced him as "terrible" and "dreadful". George said: "I wanted to like it but I couldn't. They're my songs, they're my heart, they're my life." [19] A proposed tour for December 2006 in the UK did not take place. In 2007, Moss stated that the project was shelved. [ kutipan diperlukan ]

2011 Edit

In late 2011, George was part of a three-man Culture Club band that performed two live concerts, in Dubai and Sydney, the latter being a New Year's Eve concert, although Moss did not appear due to a back injury. [20]

2014–present Edit

In 2014, the band reformed and announced a tour and a new album. A new picture of the four members was also posted on the band's official website, along with the list of the 11 UK concert dates. Alison Moyet was to have been a special guest on the tour. [ kutipan diperlukan ]

The band travelled to Spain for a two-week recording session. 18 new tracks were completed for a new album produced by Youth. The new album, entitled suku, was scheduled for release in early 2015 on the band's own label Different Man Music (via Kobalt Label Services). At the end of that year the album had still not materialised.

On 19 July 2014, the band were among the line-up for a two-hour concert in Edinburgh Castle, ahead of the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Hay did not perform with the band because he was in recovery after having knee surgery. The band played two songs, "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me" and "Karma Chameleon". [ kutipan diperlukan ]

In mid-November 2014, two days before the start of their 21-date US and UK tour, Culture Club announced they had to cancel the tour due to George suffering from a serious throat condition. The cancelled tour would have represented the full original line-up's first tour in 12 years. [21] [22] The North American tour was eventually rescheduled and started on 17 July 2015 in Canada. A television documentary, Boy George and Culture Club: Karma to Calamity, aired on BBC Four on 6 March 2015. The programme documented the band's reunion in 2014 and the making of their new album in Spain, up to the announcement to cancel the tour. [23] Based on the popularity of 2015's mini-tour, Culture Club began a 40-city summer tour in 2016, including dates in Australia, Japan, and the US. [ kutipan diperlukan ]

In August 2016, the band announced that the album suku was permanently shelved, and offered refunds to all those who had pre-ordered the album online.

A reworked album called Kehidupan (credited to George & Culture Club) was finally released on 26 October 2018. [24]

In 2018, Culture Club toured the US and Europe from June to December. Dijuluki The Life Tour, the band toured in support of their namesake album, along with supporting acts The B-52s, Tom Bailey (formerly of The Thompson Twins) and Belinda Carlisle (Europe dates only). Jon Moss was originally part of the line-up, but did not participate in the European leg of the tour. A spokeswoman for Boy George confirmed: "Jon's taking a break from Culture Club but the door is open in the future." [25] In December 2019, Moss filed a writ at London's High Court naming the band trio as defendants. Moss' lawyers say he was told to "take a break" by manager Paul Kemsley, demanding nearly £200,000 in missing payments and a share of profits. [26]

Culture Club returned to the SSE Arena in Wembley on 19 December 2020 for a livestream concert, broadcast around the world, in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Berjudul Rainbow in the Dark, the concert saw the band play their classic hits, new material, including a new ballad version of "Karma Chameleon", featuring Mila, and covers of T. Rex's "Get It On (Bang a Gong)" and George's solo cover of Bread's "Everything I Own".


4 of Our Favorite Musicians’ Favorite Drinks

As a music lover with a background in the drinks industry, I’m often left wondering what my favorite artists sip on. While most fans debate about which B-side the band will play live or what song they’ll cover for an encore, I’m waging a personal debate about what’s in the lead singer’s Solo cup.

With some artists, it’s easier to detect their preferred beverage. I’ve witnessed Brett Dennen enjoying some wine on stage, Band of Horses sipping beers in between songs, and legendary prog-rockers The Mars Volta partaking in some weird, steaming, brightly-colored concoction before and after destroying every guitar and mic stand in sight (no way it was just tea in there). Often times, though, the band keeps the drinking backstage, behind the curtains and way from adoring fans.

What does the performing class enjoy? It’s about as eclectic a favorite drinks list as the music they make. What we like to sip, like the sounds we run through our speakers, is a reflection of who we are and there’s no room for a one-size-fits-all approach.

Some musicians like a drink or two to get the creative juices flowing, whether it be trying to write a song in the wee hours or settling on a chord progression that will get the listener moving. Others pull something out of the cellar to celebrate a successful album or festival appearance. Some don’t even touch the stuff, having had their own battles with alcohol or being of a mind that their best work comes from a completely grounded mental state.

Kenneth Pattengale is one half of the California folk duo Milk Carton Kids. The guitarist and vocalist appreciates a good cocktail after an evening performance. One in particular, devised by Brandon Bramhall of Attaboy, captures his heart. It’s a take on an American classic, not unlike his group’s steeped-in-tradition sound.

Jessica Perez

“If you’re anywhere near Nashville or New York, the Turncoat is my platonic ideal of a Martini,” he says. “The way navy-strength gin blends with fino sherry, and a perfect proportion of sweet and dry vermouths, makes for the perfect accompaniment to a show well-performed.”

John Onstott is a multi-instrumentalist for brooding Oklahoma rockers Other Lives. The band’s sweeping, sometimes haunting tracks can carry you right off your feet. A few years back, the act toured with the esteemed likes of Radiohead and Bon Iver. It’s not entirely surprising that a group responsible for such a nuanced sound also likes a good, detail-driven wine.

“We try not to drink before we perform, but after a performance there’s nothing like a decent bottle of Norello Mascalese,” Onstott says. “The grapes are grown on the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily.”

The wines from this part of the world are known for their distinctive qualities, arising at least partially from sharing some topography with a famous volcano. Norello Mascalese is somewhat like Pinot Noir in its complexity and weight, a lighter red with tasting notes so extensive they spill right off the page.

Andy Shauf is a gifted musician from Canada. He’s fronted his own eponymous indie-folk-rock outfit as well as taken part in significant side projects like Foxwarren. The singer-songwriter likes to keep things simple and rooted to his native provincial home when it comes to imbibing.

Andy Shauf Colin Medley

“My go-to drink is a Molson pilsner, the unofficial beer of Saskatchewan” Shauf says. “They carry it at the Skyline and it’s a nice reminder of home in the big city.” The bar he’s referencing is in Toronto, his current home.

The beer makes a lot of sense in light of Shauf’s often minimalistic, but incredibly refreshing and evocative sound. His album Pesta, released in 2016, remains a telling musical tale about one eventful evening, oscillating between quiet and observant and boisterous, backed by complex arrangements. The songs function like short films and dabble in the joys and horrors of drinking, something parties so often bring out. Shauf’s newest record, The Neon Skyline, largely unfolds before a bar backdrop. Impressively, he wrote, arranged, performed, and produced every track on the record. It’s a great unwinder, worthy of a cold one.

On the West Coast, in Portland, Oregon, Jeni Wren Stottrup plays soul and R&B-inspired music. The former Shy Girls member is now in charge of her own burgeoning solo career. On the side, the multi-instrumentalist and vocalist heads a music industry podcast called Gritty Birds.

She prefers a good glass of red wine after a day in the studio. “Usually a Cab blend that isn’t too spicy,” she says. “I work and produce from home, so coming out to my local wine bar keeps me semi-social. Plus it’s a nice warm segue from production life.”

Cliche would tell us that no guitar-wielding troubadour is ever too far from a bottle of Jack Daniels, but the musically inclined have palates that demand differently.


Giant oak headphones created by Bushmills

Bushmills has created the world’s largest set of barrel oak headphones to mark Bushmills Live 2014, which will be headlined by The 1975

Made by two local artists using almost a dozen giant whiskey barrels, the headphones stand at over 10 feet high and will play music from the Diageo-owned brand’s Bushmills Live 2014 music concert.

This creation follows the unveiling of a limited edition line of headphones made from Bushmills whiskey barrels by Hollywood actor-tuned-DJ Elijah Wood and his music partner Zach Cowie.

Taking place on 11-12 June, Bushmills Live 2014 will see 700 fans enjoy an array of whiskey and music at the Old Bushmills Distillery on the north coast of Ireland.

Bushmills Irish whiskey master distiller Colum Egan said: “We’re looking forward to throwing open the doors of the distillery and welcoming friends, old and new, to come and enjoy the handcrafted whiskey and music on offer at Bushmills Live 2014.”

The festival was launched in 2012 to cement the distillery’s association with the music industry, which has since seen other limited edition musical items created from Bushmills barrels.

In October 2012, Bushmills auctioned a guitar made from whiskey barrels, owned by Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon, for charity.

British band The 1975 have been announced as the festival’s headline act on 12 June.

“We’ve never played a show in a distillery before so it’s a first for us. We’ve gigged all over the place but to play a festival like this, in a setting as unique as this, will be pretty special,” said the band’s lead singer, Matthew Healy.

Jones was born Geethali Norah Jones Shankar on March 30, 1979, in Manhattan, New York, to American concert producer Sue Jones and Indian musician Ravi Shankar. [5] [6]

After her parents separated in 1986, Jones lived with her mother, growing up in Grapevine, Texas. As a child, Jones began singing in church and also took piano and voice lessons. She attended Colleyville Middle School and Grapevine High School before transferring to Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas. Her music took its first form early on in the local Methodist Church where she regularly sang solos. While in high school, she sang in the school choir, participated in band, and played the alto saxophone. At the age of 16, with both parents' consent, she officially changed her name to Norah Jones. [5] [15]

Jones always had an affinity for the music of Bill Evans and Billie Holiday, among other "oldies". She once said, "My mom had this eight-album Billie Holiday set I picked out one disc that I liked and played that over and over again." [16]

2000–2001: Kota New York, First Sessions Sunting

As Peter Malick states in the liner notes, "I started looking for a singer who might be open to recording [my latest songs] for me. On a Tuesday night, I walked into the Living Room just as the singer announced the last song of the set. The Dinah Washington classic 'Since I Fell for You' filled the room and I was struck breathless. Here, in the tradition of Billie Holiday, was a stunningly beautiful, blues infused voice. This was my first contact with Norah Jones." [23] Malick asked her to participate in sessions at Room 9 from Outer Space in South Boston, Massachusetts, during August and September 2000. They recorded Malick's songs "New York City", "Strange Transmissions", "Deceptively Yours" and "Things You Don't Have to Do" in addition to cover versions of "All Your Love" by Sam Maghett and "Heart of Mine" by Bob Dylan. These songs became the album Kota New York (Koch, 2003) by the Peter Malick Group Featuring Norah Jones. [23]

After moving to New York City, Jones signed to Blue Note, a label owned by EMI Group. The signing came as an indirect result of her performing as lead singer for the JC Hopkins Biggish Band. Shell White, who was the wife of J. C. Hopkins, worked for EMI Publishing and gave Jones's three-track demo to Bruce Lundvall, the label's president, and Brian Bacchus, its artists and repertoire agent (A&R). The demo contained two jazz standards and a song by Jesse Harris. The two executives agreed that Jones had potential. Despite their misgivings about the direction of her music, they signed her to the label. Bacchus told HitQuarters, "We let her find her own direction. We knew that if she could develop her songwriting and we could find great songs, it would work." [24]

Giant oak headphones created by Bushmills

Bushmills has created the world’s largest set of barrel oak headphones to mark Bushmills Live 2014, which will be headlined by The 1975

Made by two local artists using almost a dozen giant whiskey barrels, the headphones stand at over 10 feet high and will play music from the Diageo-owned brand’s Bushmills Live 2014 music concert.

This creation follows the unveiling of a limited edition line of headphones made from Bushmills whiskey barrels by Hollywood actor-tuned-DJ Elijah Wood and his music partner Zach Cowie.

Taking place on 11-12 June, Bushmills Live 2014 will see 700 fans enjoy an array of whiskey and music at the Old Bushmills Distillery on the north coast of Ireland.

Bushmills Irish whiskey master distiller Colum Egan said: “We’re looking forward to throwing open the doors of the distillery and welcoming friends, old and new, to come and enjoy the handcrafted whiskey and music on offer at Bushmills Live 2014.”

The festival was launched in 2012 to cement the distillery’s association with the music industry, which has since seen other limited edition musical items created from Bushmills barrels.

In October 2012, Bushmills auctioned a guitar made from whiskey barrels, owned by Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon, for charity.

British band The 1975 have been announced as the festival’s headline act on 12 June.

“We’ve never played a show in a distillery before so it’s a first for us. We’ve gigged all over the place but to play a festival like this, in a setting as unique as this, will be pretty special,” said the band’s lead singer, Matthew Healy.


The 1975 (2017)

Strange how a cover version can be one of the most talked-about songs of the entire month — but not too strange, given the parties involved. The 1975’s new release for the War Child charity pulls poptimism’s favorite rock band back into the forefront, filters Matthew Healey’s lead vocal through an Auto-Tuned ether frolic that’s as disorienting and elusive as Sade Adu’s voice is soothingly direct, and acknowledges the original’s prescience while updating it for a listenership interested in finding a commonality with Bon Iver and Chance The Rapper. It is the latest “By Your Side” cover it probably will not be the last.
