Nébeda - Flaugier. sN (Spain 2003) @192

Flaugier s/n is the result of a particular way of understanding the evolution of the traditional music of universal origin and its translation into actual sounds. traditional instruments fused with other current sounds of our ancestors who must live with sounds
of our descendents.

The project Nebeda born when the core of the band, formed by musicians from the folk and traditional music, he decided to sign players from other styles, from classical music to jazz more orthodox cooler.

The result is an explosive mixture with influences of all kinds, but never lost the charm and traditional acoustic instruments. We work on re-development of folk music adapted to current times, with the eclecticism our flag.  Swimming with Balkan rhythms, early music pieces, themes of our land, his own compositions...  does not matter.  All this is spiced with the special sauce that we make: two sides of boundless energy, a sensitivity and a freshness.  Mix well and serve on stage with a good dose of humor.

The ecosystem through which it moves Nebeda is not limited to the stage Catalans, but often develops his artistic actvidad both the Iberian peninsula and abroad.

Mr Fox - Join Us In Our Game - 1970-1971 (England 2004) @320

Originally released on the Transatlantic label in 1970 and 1971 respectively, this 2 on 1 includes  Mr Fox and The Gipsy, the only two albums by the Yorkshire folk group.

Mr Fox were an early 1970s electric folk or folk rock band. They were seen as in the ‘second generation’ of electric folk performers and for a time were compared with Steeleye Span and Sandy Denny’s Fotheringay. Unlike Steeleye Span they mainly wrote their own material in a traditional style and developed a distinct ‘northern’ variant of the genre. They demonstrate the impact and diversity of the electric folk movement and the members went on to pursue significant careers within the electric folk and traditional music genres after they disbanded in 1972 having recording two highly regarded albums.

02 - The Banged Man
