August 14, 2011

Foreigner - stalwarts of Arena Rock in the 70's.

A double Bill this week - first up is a live in-studio concert from radio station WKQX in Chicago from July 1, 1977 by Foreigner. One of the staples of Arena Rock and AOR FM Radio in the 1970's, Foreigner are still around and touring today with a string of hits and multi-platinum albums to their credit.

But this gig is from their early period and a reminder of what the excitement was all about way back then.

And for you Adventurous types . . . .

Sexy Sadie. One of Spain's most influential Indie bands, back together after a three year hiatus.

Sexy Sadie, one of the premier Indie Bands to come out of Spain, performed a reunion set at the Sonorama Festival 2011, located north of Madrid in Aranda de Dureo and was recorded by RNE just yesterday. Having formed in 1992 and achieving huge popularity in Spain and throughout Europe, Sexy Sadie took a break in 2007 after putting out six successful albums and reunited last year, releasing a new album and hitting the Festival circuit this summer. FYI, the band sings in English so there's no need to brush up on your Spanish, unless you want to get the full flavor of the comments between songs. In any event, a good set by a great band and another highlight from the countless festivals popping up all over Europe this Summer.
