A legend of Woodstock in Paris

A legend of Woodstock in Paris

During the Summer of Love, Barry « The Fish » Melton celebrated his 20th birthday in June 1967. A few days later, he and his band Country Joe and The Fish were rocketed onto the world stage at the Monterey Pop Festival with such luminaries as the Jefferson Airplane, the Mamas and Papas, Otis Redding, Ravi Shankar, Simon and Garfunkel, the Who, Jimi Hendrix… Barry also appeared in the movie bearing the same name: « Woodstock ». At the same time Jay Ryan was playing with a « marching band » in Chicago.

In the 1980’s, Barry « The Fish » Melton put together San Francisco’s historic supergroup, « The Dinosaurs », featuring John Cipollina (Quicksilver Messenger Service), Spencer Dryden (Jefferson Airplane), Peter Albin (Big Brother and the Holding Company) and Robert Hunter (Grateful Dead songwriter). Other members of the band later included Merl Saunders (Saunders- Jerry Garcia Band) and Papa John Creach (Hot Tuna).
At the same time Jay Ryan was playing with Yohan Asherton, Les Froggies, Jacno, Paris Slim, or on stage with Elliot Murphy, The Transcontinental Cowboys…

50 years after Woodstock, Barry « The Fish » Melton with Jay and The Cooks are playing together, to celebrate the festival with an authentic Rock, Blues and Folk show.

Try to sing Death Melodic and Thrash Metal

Try to sing Death Melodic and Thrash Metal

Split Brain is a Metal band with Melodic Death and Thrash influences. The lyrics in French give a big singularity to the project. Screaming, singing and whispering take turns one after the other to create a riveting universe.

To support their efforts, a video entitled Discours Idyllique has just been released. It has some features that can seduce all. You don’t have to be a Death Melo or Thrash fan to enjoy it.

The video was made from a series of original Batt'Art drawings. For the animation, Elie Villain used the parallax technic. He divided the drawings into several planes that he positioned in a 3D environment. He then activated a camera in this environment to create zoom and travelling effects.

Words appear as we go along. Some would say it’s a “Karaoke”. Indeed, it is enough to follow the words to get involved to the end of the title. Moreover, listening to the chorus, it is almost impossible not to sing.
To go even further, here are the full lyrics.
You can now sing Death melodic and Thrash Metal !

dessin de Batt'Art


Encore une fois rien qu’une fois
Ce doux souvenir de ce qui devait être 
Plein de paraître, avec sagesse.
Le meilleur des mondes sans que la colère gronde
Seuls au monde, admettre ses faiblesses
qu’importe si le bât blesse

Envolés, nos rêves condamnés, fantasmes abandonnés

Encore une fois une dernière fois
Ces beaux discours des anciens jours
Tant de paraître mais sans sagesse
Mentir sur ses dires, ou comment trahir
Un seul mot d’ordre semer la discorde
qu’importe la méthode

Se souvenir, pour avancer
Imaginer son avenir, se retrouver
Se mentir, ne fera que nous nuire
Fatigué, révolté, il faudra bien s’accrocher

Envolés, nos rêves condamnés, fantasmes abandonnés

Mais quelle candeur, à se perdre dans le passé
Sans peur Abandonné, condamné
Résigné à espérer, plutôt qu’à en rêver
Triste réalité d’un passé oublié

Se souvenir, pour avancer. Imaginer l’avenir, pour se retrouver

Envolés, nos rêves condamnés, fantasmes abandonnés

Lyrics : Rémi PIERRE
Music : Rémi PIERRE, Nicolas DIJOUX, Nicolas JEANNETEAU, Frédéric ACX, Damien MARCHANT
