Guitar Solos – Macht Shau! #2 

As posted in Macht Shau! #1, we're true believers in giving youse guys a fab night out. At least, the musical element of it, anyway.

But then, eventually, comes the guitar solo. Trey admits, yes, he has a penchant for noodling, wigging out, or simply indulging in some hot licks. Sometimes, he even plays the guitar. Improvisation is a much lost art in the rock world (not the roque world, happily), and we're holding out for it.

Sadly, with tap-dancing, singing and keeping up the rhythm guitar, Trey doesn't get…Read more

Learn the Bleedin' Music – Macht Shau! #1 

In some kind of very hard stone (rock, perhaps?), 'tis written – Macht Shau! 

Now, this commandment was handed down from a dodgy nightclub owner in Hamburg, to our favourite mop-tops, The Beatles. Back when they was a bubbling stew of alchemical potential*. 

And here at Power's Towers, we are reaaaally traditional about the things that matter. Your evening's entertain is one of them. 

After all, you put your calendar in order, get your ass down to the venue through inclement weather conditions ±, pays…

Placeholder @ Stara Mydlarna – Story of the Song 

Trey's always turning over rocks to see what's underneath them. Musically speaking.

Real rocks are a bit too gooey underneath, or have biting spiders and cheesed off vipers. Or he's too puny to turn them over, which is why he sticks to musical ones. That's the real reason.

Regardless, he was noodling with ideas lifted from Frank Zappa, particularly the '2nd no third' chord*. From this, lassitude kicked in and he simply slid his hand up and down the neck, playing a pedal note (that's a note you keep playing…Read more

Mary Magdalene @ Stara Mydlarna – Story of the Song 

Trey once had a thang about Mary Magdalene. And, like any good Catholic boy (or girl!), why not?

After all, MM is the only woman with any sass in the bible, even though she did that kinda kinky washing feet with tears thing.

Anyway, as the closest thing to JC as a girlfriend he's meant of have had (but, really, a rockstar like that? Hmmm.), and, no Freudianism not left unturned, with the same name as his mam, she's certainly worth a second look. Especially if her amanuensis is Barbara Hershey...

Clutch Hitter's Song @ Stara Mydlarna – You Guys Roque! 

The old soap factory certainly cleans it up on the roque front.

Rarely have we been treated so nicely (thanks Eda!), had such great sound (thanks Ruda!), and great bar staff (we got too drunk to recall). And, no doubt, a lovely audience who'd we love to take home, even though we've only a crunchy sofa bed and gin in the fridge for accomodations.

Stara Mydlarna is a wicked cool place in Melnik (!yes!), harking back to the golden age of rock'n'roll, i.e. the 70s. To wit:

And lovely sound. Like here:
