RICHARD HELL & THE VOIVODS

Style:     Jazz     Punk




































RICHARD HELL & THE VOIVODS were a rock band from the first wave of punk rock, fronted by Richard Meyers, a former member of The Neon Boys, Television and The Heartbreakers. Formed in New York City, at various times the band included influential guitarist Robert Quine, Ivan Julian, Naux Maciel, former Contortions and The Raybeats guitarist Jody Harris, Golden Palominos leader Anton Fier, and future Ramones member Marc Bell (Marky Ramone). The group is best known for Hell’s worldview, who reflected in songs like “Who Says?” and next to another New York punk bands a personal profile and personality a little bit intellectual, artistic, individualist and a little self-centered. Their song “Blank Generation” served as an anthem for the punk movement in New York. Despite these early years, Richard Meyers is nowadays a person interested in politics, social issues and environment protection, as everybody can to read his articles or poetry in his personal blog. The Voidoids were started in 1976 when Richard Hell left The Heartbreakers. The first lineup consisted of Hell, Quine, Julian and Bell. The band released what has been considered their best album "Blank Generation" in 1977 with original influences of jazz, blues or anti-folk, with an exceptional work on bass and drums (rhythmic section) very rare in the majority of punk bands late 70s. This lineup dissolved around 1979. A new lineup in 1982, this time with Hell, Quine and new members Naux (Juan Maciel) on guitar and Fred Maher on drums, was featured on The Voidoids second album Destiny Street. According to Hell, Destiny Street suffered due to Hell’s being distracted during the recording process, especially by the use of narcotics. This second lineup dissolved around 1985.

American Caesar is a 1993 album by Iggy Pop. After the success of Brick by Brick, Pop opted to continue with that album's lyrical themes while toughening up the musical foundation. Consequently, the album is often considered one of his stronger 90's albums. The cover of the UK edition contained the following text: "Parental Warning: this is an Iggy Pop record". Videos were made for "Wild America" and "Beside you". Other notable moments on the album include "Highway Song" and an ambitious cover of the 60s standard "Louie Louie" (made famous by The Kingsmen) for which Iggy wrote his very own set of humorous, politically fueled lyrics. It was later used during the opening credits of Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story. The first single from the album, "Wild America", reached number 25 on Modern rock tracks. The album was not as commercially successful as its predecessor, but it did fare well in the UK and sold well throughout the 90s in America and most of IGGY POP fans think this is his best album ever.
