John Butler Trio "Crossroads Rockpalast 2005"

Direto da Austrália para a Alemanha e de lá para o mundo.Palco dos maiores músicos e bandas de todos os tempos.

Até considerado como o ápice hoje devido aos contratos assinados que chegam a ser anuais e shows retransmitidos por um dos maiores canais de tv do mundo.

Aqui está em seu melhor momento este trio que realmente me conquistou em tudo, em mais um trabalho de qualidade (em avi) excelente do meu irmão sem noção, Poucosiso.

Não tem muito o que dizer, só assistir.Rockpalast (Rock Palace) is a German music television show that broadcasts live on German television station Westdeutscher Rundfunk (WDR).

Rockpalast started in 1974 and continues to this day.
Hundreds of rock and jazz bands have performed on Rockpalast.
Some acts were recorded for broadcast throughout Europe and are available at retail outlets such as, others are featured on YouTube.

From 1977 into the 21st century, once or twice a year the program would schedule all-night marathon shows called "rocknights", which at least up to around 1990 were telecast live across much of Western Europe by the Eurovision and which would go on until 4 a.m. or later.

Rockpalast once sponsored the Bizarre Festival and is involved in several other German rock/underground music festivals

John Butler Trio "April Uprising"

Tem coisas que só acontecem qdo vc está predisposto pra tal.

Qdo abri a nossa alcatéia a idéia era compartilhar experiências, músicas, fazer um ponto de encontro virtual pra poder se bater um papo a hora que desse e pudesse sem compromissos a não ser com a amizade.

Muita agua correu nesse período, uns se foram e outros vieram e hoje muito mais que antes parecendo até que aqui é algum lugar importante,rs

Só que hoje podem até fechar prq consegui o objetivo de juntar amigos e sermos uma família mesmo com os defeitos de uma família; só que vejam o post de hoje.
Uma das novidades do Claúdio de fim de semana e não pude esperar.

Não é o melhor disco deles, mas achei que deveria subir logo, colocar os videos e compartilhar algo novo, ares novos na música e que a torna sempre eterna, isso sim é o combustível de estar aqui e continuar enquanto der.

Valeu Cláudio, bela dica.The John Butler Trio, Australia's biggest contribution to the jam band movement, gets a serious makeover on 2010's April Uprising. Butler dissolved the previous lineup one year before this album's release, hoping to keep things fresh with a change in personnel.

Newcomers Byron Luiters and Nicky Bomba (Butler's brother-in-law) make their debut here, and the band further reinvents itself by sticking closer to the alt-rock camp than ever before, with Butler trading his fingerplucked guitar arpeggios for electric riffs and power chords.He's not entirely done with the genres that fueled his earlier albums -- reggae, folk, pop, and acoustic soul chief among them -- and songs like "Don't Wanna See Your Face" are familiarly funky, with grooves specifically designed for the festival crowds that sustain the John Butler Trio every summer.

Even so, April Uprising signals a change in direction, with a newfound emphasis on rock textures and political lyrics ("Sometimes I do wonder how we do sleep/Serving the dodgy companies we keep") that make the band sound like a flashier, Aussie equivalent of State Radio. ~ Andrew LeaheyAudio Mixer: Robin Mai.

Arranger: The John Butler Trio.Billboard (p.32) - "[T]he single 'One Way Road' is a tire-swing summer rock cut with a shot of bluegrass and a little bit of California sunshine..."

Uncut (magazine) (p.83) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Butler's usual crunchy guitar shapes are augmented by banjos and tribal rhythms...the slowburn twang of 'Mystery Man' leaves a lasting impression."The John Butler Trio are an eclectic[citation needed] roots and jam band from Australia led by guitarist and vocalist John Butler. They formed in Fremantle in 1998 with Jason McGann on drums and Gavin Shoesmith on bass guitar. By 2009, the trio was Butler with Nicky Bomba on drums and percussion, and Byron Luiters on bass guitar.

The band's second studio album, Three (2001) reached the top 30 in the Australian album charts and achieved platinum sales. The band's subsequent studio albums: Sunrise Over Sea (2004); Grand National (2007); and April Uprising (2010) all debuted at the number one position on the Australian album charts, with all three albums reaching platinum sales status.

Living 2001–2002 (2003), the band's first live album, reached the top ten and also achieved platinum status in Australia. The band's second live album, Live at St. Gallen (2005) also achieved gold record status.

The band's releases since 2002 have been marketed independently by Jarrah Records, which Butler co-owns with West Australian folk band The Waifs and manager of both acts, Philip Stevens.April Uprising

On 30 June 2009 John Butler announced the new bass and drum musicians of the John Butler Trio to be Byron Luiters as the bassist and Nicky Bomba as the drummer and percussionist. Bomba, Butler's brother-in-law, has previously been a member of the John Butler Trio.

The new line-up has spent the last few months in a studio in Fremantle, recording the band's fifth studio album, which was released 26 March 2010.

The album will be called April Uprising, named after Butler's voyage to find his ancestors on SBS Television’s genealogy series, Who Do You Think You Are?.[11][12]

The recording process for the new album has been shared with fans via a special studio sessions page on the band’s website.

The first single from the album, "One Way Road", was released on 4 December 2009. Butler described the song as being

The combination of pretty much most of my musical influences; dancehall, roots & rock. Some how we found a way to bring all these feels in a way that sounds natural and not too contrived or cerebral. I’m really happy with how we captured the vibe of this song.

The band, according to, recorded twenty two songs at Butler's home based studio in Fremantle, this was eventually cut down to the fifteen that appear on the album.[14] The album was released in Australia, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland and The Netherlands on 26 March 2010, in New Zealand and France on 29 March, in the UK on 5 April, and in the USA / Canada on 6 April.

April Uprising debuted at #1 on the Australian ARIA albums chart on 5 April and whilst the first two singles from the album, "One Way Road" and "Close to You", charted at #15 and #36 on the Australian ARIA singles charts they both reached the top five in the Spins radio airplay charts, the former reaching #1.

On 4 June 2010 John Butler Trio played a show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, which was streamed live to fans around the world at Livestream.

In November 2010, April Uprising, was nominated at the ARIA Awards for 'Best Blues and Roots Album' and 'Best Independent Release'.

April Uprising, the new album from John Butler Trio, is John’s most focused, diverse and accessible album to date. It combines the personal, the political and the musically memorable with skill and passion.
