Like some heavy jazz influence with your prog? Here’s progressive band The Tangent with their song In Earnest off their 2006 album A Place in the Queue. It’s a really chill album with some playfulness scattered throughout it.

With a group of friends I saw a band over a year ago (was it a year ago?) whose show still remains one of my favorites. It was intimate with a lot of crowd interaction.

Here’s HORSE the band with their song Big Business off their 2009 album Desperate Living.

Milli Vanilli Gets Movie

Florian Gallenberger will write the screenplay and direct the film on the scandal of 80s popstars Milli Vanilli. This will be the German-born filmmaker’s first Hollywood movie.

German record producer Frank Farian hired dancers Rob Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan to be the face of the singers of a band he put together; portraying them as the actual singers for the songs. Their looks were used to propel the songs on the charts. Rumors gradually spread that they lip-sync onstage; leading to empirical evidence when during a live performance, the recording they lip-synched to began skipping. The duo panicked and fled the stage.

Rob and Fab then had a change of heart and refused to promote another album unless they get to really sing, but Farian opposed it and revealed the charade to the public. The two attempted a legitimate music career despite the shame, but eventually the scandal overcame Rob who died from a drug overdose.

As an 80s kid, I am genuinely looking forward to the film. Milli Vanilli were huge and the scandal felt surreal; no one involved was innocent, and it ended tragically.

Gallenberger won various German film awards, including an Academy Award for his short film Quiero Ser — the story of Milli Vanilli is in good hands.
