Hugo Race & Michelangelo Russo


23-11-2017 Starting at 20:00 Ending at ul. Estery 5

Hugo Race and Michelangelo Russo are not newcomers, nor are they John Lee Hooker or the Blues. Blues has always been the basis of their music in the Hugo Race & True Spirit band. Now on the 100th anniversary of the blues king's birthday, they decided to present his songs in their own language. The album was recorded during a one-day, all-night session in Berlin at the Boris Wilsdorf studio (Einstürzende Neubauten), during which Hugo and Michelangelo looked from 21st-century perspective to John Lee Hooker's delta-blues heritage, magically mixing analogic persistence with a deep trance pulse. The selection of works is a story in itself: from the spectacular early Hobo Blues and Country Boy to the late Hooker blues, "The World Today" and "The Motor City's Burning" (it's actually a track by MC5, later recorded by Hooker in delta-blues version. Hooker's vision is blues, electronics, avant-garde and ambient, created by one of the greatest rock and roll prehistory.
