WELCOME PJ HARVEY – THE MUSIC OF L.M.BANKSY

In just a short time the God of rock took away years of history depriving us of certain legends, artists among the most influential and important, but now, thanks to their musical works, they have become legends never to be erased. Faced with these grave losses there is nothing left to do but to hold more dear those who are still with us, to give a welcome to Her, who, four years after «Let England Shake», will come back this […]

A THOUSAND SHADES OF WHITE –

That Jack White is a very special bloke and has a thousand interests is well known. He’s the singer-guitarist of the White Stripes, member of Raconteurs and The Dead Weather (supergroups made up of friends from Kills, The Greenhornes and Queens Of The Stone Age), works with some of the most famous contemporary musicians as well as pursuing a solo career, loves his incursions into film with both appearances and music scores, feeds his obsession with the number 3, is […]

CONCERTS ON THE BEACH FOR MUSIC HOLIDAYS – the Mag 17

Surely summer is the time that smiles most on music lovers. The number and the quality of the events, the open-air concert spaces, the longer days and the possibility of organizing your time better are opportunities so rich for a good rock n’roller not to take advantage. But in these multi-coloured hot summer days not everyone knows that there is an Italian pearl that is envied by Europe and maybe even in other continents, a real and true oasis of […]

BJORK – THE MUSIC OF LUCA M. BANKSY – THE MAG 15

With the release of her ninth album ‘Vulnicura’ in March, I took the opportunity to dedicate this article to Bjork. Her unique style and expressive voice have made her famous throughout the music scene. An eternal girl who turns 50 this year, she has had a long successful, albeit somewhat eccentric, career. The autobiographical album is focused purely on the end of her relationship. “Vulnus” meaning wound and “cura” cure, follows the path of a breakup; beginning with the pain […]

Exit music for a film – L.M.Banksy – the Mag 13

With the divine Monica Bellucci on this the Mag edition’s cover, my focus has necessarily been on the deep connection between film and music. It’s an almost inseparable combination in many films and has reached its climax and became a true cinematic genre when the fascination with rock stars and the histories of music stars in general, has struck the imagination of writers, directors and producers. Taking advantage of the new release of films depicting the life of beloved musicians […]

L.M. BANKSY MUSIC – LEONARD COHEN: THE WISE BEAUTY

On 21st September Leonard Cohen had his 80th birthday and in a wonderfully self-ironic move, celebrated the fact two days later with the release of a new album, “Popular Problems.” [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLmVG4oUmSM[/youtube] The Canadian poet, writer and composer is undoubtedly one of music history’s most celebrated, influential and respected songwriters. The legend of this extraordinary man has never ceased to shine in the course of his career, until getting to the great beauty of his old age. The way he looks directly […]

The Return of Johnny Cash – L.M.Banksy

The Man in Black is back. February 26th saw the anniversary of the birth of Johnny Cash in 1932 in a cramped house in Kingsland, Arkansas. On February 24th we celebrated the anniversary of what may be considered one of the best live performances in the history of rock ‘n’ roll. It was the year 1969 in the maximum security prison of San Quentin, where a man dressed in black with his guitar inflamed an audience of inmates and guards, […]

The best of… is yet to come

The best of… is yet to come The New Year is a great time to look at both the best of last year’s music and what’s yet to come. In 2013 there were comebacks from Bowie, Pearl Jam and Arcade Fire, the best of which was Nick Cave and his band Bad Seeds.  Their album ‘Push the sky away’ was one to magically seduce, frustrate and caress us. The quality of the studio work retained the sense of going to […]

LIGHTNING BOLT – L.M.BANKSY

  One of the universes where the passage of time creates an imbalance in the cosmic void is definitely the musical one. Right now in this respect this has hit hard. No, I am not just referring to the passing of one of the greatest, tormented rock star, poets, Lou Reed, for whom there is not an encyclopaedia big enough to pay worthy homage to. The memory of the greatest artists is perhaps the best way to deliver him into […]

The music of L.M. Banksy – ARCADE FIRE… WAITING FOR REFLEKTOR

On the 9/9 at 9 o’clock, Arcade Fire’s new single was released together with a video directed by Anton Corbijn.  It was preceded by an intriguing viral campaign full of clever mysterious touches, clues, ambiguity, and teasers with cryptic alpha-numeric combinations, lasting just a few seconds. Street art and graffiti, a diamond with the word ‘reflektor’ embedded within a circle, suddenly started appearing all over the place, and reflected  on the internet and on social networks. These will multiply until […]
