UFO
Bochum, Matrix, 16.11.2009
Hold you down, people! 40 years UFO without hypermodern warp drive, yet still hard to track. The Show,continue to do well in the form as on Monday evening in Bochum's 'Matrix', they could survive a few albums and tours. Well, while Pete Way is no longer available, the diseased liver embittered him, but the small ones for the European tour and supposedly stepped by half younger Bassman Rob De Luca, at least has a similar haircut and a similar stature as Old Pete. Okay, his old Gibson Thunderbird Bass, he also worked damn good and also complements Paul Raymond exemplary in backing vocals. Good job, Rob!
Instead of master drummer Jason Bonham sits the original drummer Andy Parker, now back behind the drum kit, always reliable and drums to sympathetic the master in all rythms.

Otherwise, almost everything as it was for our UFO Battleship: Vinnie Moore, the great virtuose been at the helm after five years of the guitar department of the unknown flying objects, and makes Michael Schenker forgotten. Stylistically, much better positioned and related to its virtuosity and filigree - certainly one of the Champions League. Paul Raymond, the guy with the strange-sounding 60's haircut and ultimately the British Gesichtsälteste stands as ever his man at the Rhythmusklampfe and various keyboards. With his electric guitar at Bochum's Matrix, however, quite a bit louder mix deserved. Here's hail minus points for the mixer man who would otherwise be difficult to control kriegsende 'Matrix' pretty good sonicated.

And lastly nor Mr. Phil Mogg, the one and only master, all the time for thought as captain his ship on course and continues. Still very great voice, strong and energetic, with the attitude of constantly standing on the verge boxer. Sinewy, wiry, athletic, a master rock musician of all ups and downs of the business has lived, absolutely remarkable.

The beginning of the concert - which was in fact the starting shot for the upcoming tour - but was under a bad star. Bring the diligent efforts of the roadies, the band for a smooth start to tour, first went even backfires. UFO's opener Saving me, unfortunately, was completely bathe, because Vinnie Moore's guitar amps or cables or starved and denied the service of their Lord, so the pissed off Phil Mogg the song halfway easily broke off angrily, and asked the roadies to resolve quickly the damage . The old professional Mogg, meanwhile, teased with the audience, smiling politely, of course, apologized and said casually autographs. After a few minutes, thank God, there's a green light, and Mogg asked the audience to start to go back to enjoy the start of the gig again, and unconditionally. No problem for the patiently waiting, who had to cope with a sudden but short dropouts in Moggs microphonic, which might have lasted maybe 15 or 20 seconds. What a crazy start, gee ...

But a legend like UFO can not be impressed by something and pull through as steel, professionals great. Saving me again in all its glory, then, loud and unruly, and for the first 6 or 7 rows may be a little too loudly, because some fans are moved more towards the middle room (Mr and Mr LiTG Ipach too), where it was received moderate. In the audience - it may well have been about 350 people - mostly men in the middle, late forties, and a few isolated Ladies.

The program? A 'Greatest Hits' mix of point gehässigerweise Sure, we could say, but we ultimately expect anything else, right? So, satisfaction in all respects, the audience thanked their heroes with surging with applause. From the new "The Visitor" album was a mega track Hell Driver, otherwise there's almost "Strangers In The Night 'food: Mother Mary, Let it roll, Only you can rock me, Love to Love, Too hot to handle; Lights out and the eagerly awaited and indestructible rock bottom, the Vinnie Moore finished with a megalomaniac guitar solo. Whatever gift. As an encore, and still shoot Shoot jawoll, Doctor, doctor!

What remains as the bottom line? A good, an exciting concert, entertaining and amusing (thanks, Phil Mogg humorous announcements) in spite of the abortive take-offs and men hanging still know where the hammer. Keep on flyin '...

The European tour for their new album "The Visitor" has just begun, behind the band is on a tour of the United States. The second stop on their European tour led Ufo now equal to Annaberg-Buchholz, on a small stage with direct contact with the visitors. "I think, I never stood on a stage, where the audience was so close," said Phil Mogg, singer and founder of UFO. One visitor said: "To really see every year." But even if the singer's 61 years were written on his face, Phil Mogg was vocally very good mood.

From the new CD UFO played very little, they focused on old pieces, which was honored by the audience. "Love to Love" and "Lights Out" was very well. After "Doctor Doctor," cried the fans in vain, but they got an extra long version of "Rock Bottom". UFO ago, this was not simply the presence of a hard rock band, but a reflection on the roots of boogie and blues, a trip to the glam and psychedelic rock, an arriving in the now with rich filigree and guitar playing of Vinnie Moore.

"The date was fixed for a long time, but I never thought that the house would be full. But if you offered a band gets, and the price is right, you have easy access," Roscher, Jens was the "Old Brewery" surprised by the rush of visitors. The good opening act Uriah Heep, let revival band from Carlsbad just fade away, the last keyboard sounds, there appeared at the inlet to the plate sold out ". And the license plate revealed it: The visitors not only came from Saxony, but also from Bavaria and Thuringia. Or from Salzburg, like Roberto Pieper. "I drove an extra 600 kilometers to watch with friends from Zwickau UFO. And it was terrific," said the 49-year-old, who comes from Freiberg.

UFOs, 19.11., Progression, Warsaw

TRANSLATED TO ENGLISH:

Legend and also the pioneers of hard rock performed November 19th at the Warsaw Progression. The team is present on the music scene for over forty years. Often already played concerts in our country, and none of them was a disappointment. Musicians skillfully co-opt setlist, which remains unchanging core material (of course niewielce modified) from "Strangers In The Night" - probably one of the best concert discs in rock history. Of course, the success of that album led to a large extent, finesse, and then guitarist wirtuozja Group - Michael Schenker.

UFO trail promotes latest album, The Visitor. The team, composed of Phil Mogg, Vinnie Moore, Andy Parker and Paul Raymond played to packed to the brim Progression set consists of classic blues and hard numbers from the new material.

The show started at 20:00 Scandinavian performance group The Bulletmonks, who successfully blended style power metal from a UFO. The audience took a group of very warm.

Around 21:30 on the scene came the veterans of heavy playing. The performance started to premiere "Saving Me" and from the album "You Are Here:" When Daylight Goes To Town. " Phil Mogg welcomed the audience and a beer in hand, announced that captivates a dose of hard rock. "Mother Mar" s and "Let It Roll" and guaranteed the audience crazy guitar popisówki Vinnie.

Then, the musicians presented their version of the song "Mystery Train", belonging to the repertoire of Little Junior's Blue Flames. Competent set ended with the classic era Schenker - Too Hot To Handle "and" Lights Out ".

Group twice went out of encores, which trampled the club. Implementation of "Rock Bottom" and "Shoot Shoot" onieśmieliłoby even the most modern hard rockerów. And at the end, of course, the immortal "Doctor, Doctor," in which Moore feels just as surely as his extremely talented predecessor. "Phenomenalny" performance team sealed the signing CDs and cordial meeting with fans at midnight at the rear of the club.

Excellent performance of the immortal.

TRANSLATED FROM POLISH:

Still considers the album Visitor is one of the best releases this year with climates southernrocka.Ponizej review that appeared on the Portal Rock Metal:
Team Name: UFO
CD Title: "The Visitor"
Tracks: Saving Me, On The Waterfront; Hell Driver, Stop Breaking Down, Rock Ready, Living Proof, Can not Buy A Thrill, "Forsaken, Villains & Thieves, Stranger In Town
Personnel: Phil Mogg - vocals, Vinnie Moore - Guitar, Paul Raymond - guitar, keyboards, Andy Parker - drums
Publisher: SPV Records
Year of publication: 2009
Subjective assessment (from 1 to 10): 8

UFOs once again reminded of the humanity, let none of the unbelievers do not doubt his existence. Anyone can see enough to walk to the nearest music store, where 2 June 2009, appeared in twenty album by hard rock band, titled "The Visitor". It consists of 10 tracks, dripping with atmosphere of the years when the rock was in its best condition. Feel that the men did not reduce flights, play with joy and a real rock claw.

The disc opens "Saving Me". The beginning is quiet, guitar-style southernrockowym, but after a minute spin in the real madness, and from that moment you can only get carried away a UFO - a machine where only wants to take us away. Certainly it will be interesting areas, at least for the ear. The second piece - "On The Waterfront" - peaceful, with the keys in the style of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Deep Purple, nice relish. The third one with balls - pure hard rock, entitled "Hell driver", which certainly will check the car speakers and the concert hall. Next is "Stop Breaking Down", whose guitar entrance song reminds me a bit TSA "kitten". This is one of the quieter tracks on the album, alongside "Can not Buy a Thrill" and "Forsaken". Gentlemen do not intend to lull anyone slower compositions, it launches us to "Rock Ready" and "Living Proof" - the impression, as if it was a roadside bar with beautiful women sentient rock sączącymi whiskey straight from the bottle. The "Villains & Thieves," again I see the resemblance to the TSA. This time, the distinctive riff of "Marathon" - strong position of the disc. The last number is "Stranger In Town" and, as befits the last track from the list, leaving a feeling of dissatisfaction, which can be met only by a subsequent play of the album.

"The Visitor" UFO recalls the 70s rock and 80 This impression arises from the first track, causing a sincere smile on the mouth of the old rock fan. They are not there, scribble some grandparents who have the strength they need to prove themselves that they still rock'n'roll. Everything sounds great - from the brilliant, extremely convincing vocals Phil Mogg, who nevertheless gives obłędnego sixties rock, the guitar master background Vinnie Moore, Paula Raymond climate keys and percussion of the Parker. "The Visitor" might not be so great come Baćki as if Heaven and Hell, but certainly any self-respecting rock fan should have it in our collection. This is a good album to listen to at home or in your car. On the question of whether material from "The Visitor" becomes a live exam, we can answer in Warsaw and Wroclaw in November 2009

Review - UFO - Berlin 25.11.2009 (Support PUMP)

TRANSLATED FROM GERMAN

Up, up in the Jurassic Park I think to myself silently as I'm sitting on the bus from our photographer Christian! His dog, crawling on the head, between my legs, and a workaholic, agitated camera on my right! At this point, again noticed, Marko, your work is fantastic.
Found parking right in front of Jurassic Park, is responsible for all jumped out of the bus (only the dog must stay indoors), passports and there we go into the Columbia Club in Berlin on the rock dinosaurs!

Almost sold out, I would argue, and thundered from the stage, it already properly: PUMP banging their impressive, added fresh sound into the crowd and are reasonably well by the present here, "rocker".

But back to the rock legends UFO, which will now give the evening (hopefully) do their best. I must confess that I am slightly biased going into the concert, as for the UFO had been held in the summer festivals, which they have participated in, plug in very severe criticism. Ok, now let these thoughts aside and rising tension.

To 21 clock time has come, "lights out" and UFO same board with "Saving Me" from their current album 'The Visitor' off.
Above all, I find the extreme joy of playing on the tape. Keep in mind that 2009 is the 40th anniversary of the band, and was produced with "The Visitor" the 20zigste studio album. The Besetzungskarrusell has indeed left a few of the original band members. Pete Way, however, from falling on the tour, to illness. He is a young, New York replaced bassist. Really surprised me is the existing voice violence by Phil Mogg. It also has an extraordinary stage presence and knows how to entertain his audience. Also commendable that UFO certainly entitled to respond to shouts from the audience, so no fixed setlist.

"Mother Mary" is equal to "Daylight" the third book, and here again the pure joy of playing. Even the plays of "Schenker era" have set no rust. Why no songs from the Paul Chapman era is to be played not clear to me, I get Parkererklärt but later in the interview of Andy. There is a colorful mix of bygone UFO albums, and even the title "Hell Driver" from the current "The Visitor". Great that we hear not only the new title. Here again, I must briefly notice even though I have "The Visitor is not" killed instantly, the album of torn wrong. Blues (ig) or not, the men are at a point where they have no one left to prove something.

I must admit, in my view as UFO-fan, the tracks of the Schenker era has been in my head and they sound a little, but just a little strange with VINNIE MOORE. He does not try to copy the solos, which of course is a good thing, because he is without question a sensational guitarist.
Regrettably, I must down to the backstage area of my interview with Andy Parker & Vinnie Moore, and can follow the end of the concert just as loud Boller in the basement, but it sounded after 2 encores.

Ultimately, will I be paid for the cancellation of yet, as I can learn the lessons of tape (if Mr. Mogg me through the fog at all has seen?).

For me it is, UFO 2009 is still not a bit quiet! Always a concert worth it!

Many thanks to Tonio Neuhaus (UFO tour manager) for the professional end. Christian, Marko and Torsten - Was a hell of a long day with you - Thank you!

REVIEW

Translated from Spanish

Intro sounds like "Hoochie Coochie Man" by the great Muddy Waters while the stage remains dark. Strumming acoustic-flavored blues and old Moog's voice intones the opening lines of "Save Me From Falling," the song that opens his latest album. I'm surprisedhow much his vocal chords still retain the power and versatility of the good times. Although they are no longer what they were, nor the years we pass for all, the concert was gaining intensity as the minutes passed, and above all, the madness took hold of the attendees, about 500 people, when they sounded the classic themes of the band. Goose bumps with "Love To Love", thousands of memories to sing the chorus of "Too Hot To Handle", on the verge of tears into emotion at the sound "Mystery Train" or hear the first notes of the riff that opens "Only You Can Rock Me ". Andy and Paul met leftovers, Raymond beautifully preserved, and new bassist is a clone of Pete Way. Use the same low and moves exactly like. Vinnie Moore comes from another school, the batch of super-technical guitar that abound in the nineties, but little by little, is coupled to the band and not real magic unnecessary abuses, some misses but that's normal, playing properly and according to the song structure. The final part is great, after a fabulous review of "Lights Out" Phil asked the audience if they want to hear "Doctor Doctor" or "Shoot Shoot". Obviously, to my chagrin (relative) as I flip "Shoot the public ...", choose" Doctor ... "and bursts of joy on the unmistakable first notes sounded the theme. End with another of his hymns "Rock Bottom" and endorse a concert worthy of his legend. A real pleasure to see them. I hope there is a next time. Remain large.

REVIEW - UFO (Apolo - Barcelona - 03-12-2009)

The old sounds never fail if they have soul, emotion and energy

DATE: 03/12/2009
CITY: Barcelona
LUGAR: Sala Apolo
GROUP: UFO
DURATION: 105 minutes
Invited Band: Bullet Monks (45 m.)

 


Despite having only two members who founded the group back in the distant 1969, Phil Mogg (vocals) and Andy Parker (drums), plus another veteran like Paul Raymond (keyboards and rhythm guitar), incorporated in 1976, just to record one of his best works Lights Out (1977), UFO have not lost the appeal that gives them one of the most storied British formations within the hard rock and heavy metal. Because, after many vicissitudes through which it has spent his career is still a pleasure to enjoy his presence on stage.
In this 2009 tour in which their new album The Visitor, poorly represented in the execution of two tracks, "Sav ing Me," which opened the concert in Barcelona's Apolo with an attendance greater than his previous visit to the city and Hell Driver, highlights the lack of another of its founders, bassist Pete Way, recovering from some physical and mental problems and was replaced by Rob De Luca.

Completing the training course, was Vinnie Moore, fixed component since 2004, after the umpteenth "awe" of Mr. Michael Schenker.
UFO are one of those bands whose classical repertoire is a guarantee of fun. Surely, between his vast discography will have many songs to choose from but it is welcomed that were favored by the most charismatic. In fact his performance was mainly in the 70s with albums ranging from 1974 to 1978. Besides the two above mentioned concessions to his latest phenomenon are the "intrusiveness" of "When Daylight Goest To Town" from the album You Are Here 2004 and "Mystery Train", the version of Little Junior's Blue Flames, appeared in No Place To Run in 1980. The rest, it only needs to review the set list to verify that is packed with foolproof songs like "Mother Mary", "Let It Roll," "Cherry," "Too Hot To Handle", "Lights Out", etc.. With "Doctor Doctor" and "Rock Bottom", as euphoric climax.

Rob De Luca - unruly
In a concert of the current UFO not find an excessive waste of forces. After decades of constant activity, a social life cluttered and vocalist known abuses of drinking, imposing a less frenetic pace.
Phil Mogg, knows how to be loved and become the center of attention. The fact is, this guy sings with his whole body, not only in his throat, his expressiveness and empathy exercise a special magnetism, now joking with some CD's porn, then drinks with the public for complicity to know how in Castilian provide the equivalent of "cheers" ...
When we subtracted from the presence of Phil, we see the suffering of upstage Andy, giving the sticks with his eyes closed and brow furrowed. Crush a battle-hardened body, sweating and puffing but in the end, thanking the public support and excited with a huge smile of farewell. Paul is not for many trots but their work is less stressful, combines fluent rhythm guitar and their approaches to the keyboards to take that additional touch to the songs.

Paul Raymond, elegance and rhythm
More energetic, with the permission of his age, shows Rob, moving around the stage, tapping incessantly and occasionally finding a exhultante Vinnie and happy finalizing harmonies with his renowned skill without hints of star currante but as the guitar, with a look of "I still believe this with UFO". We notice that having fun and, incidentally, amuses us all.
Little more can be added, the hard rock turned to heavy at times and its scent is not music to bluesy debauchery but to taste it as the "delicatessen", which has become over the years. Not obliterate but convincing. Nor do they need, have a legacy that can squeeze the end of time, and never mind if it gets tired, feeling and sufficient dose of energy.

Andy Parker
A single hit would have preferred "Shoot Shoot" of second encore, as planned, to cancel a change can be avoided "When Daylight Goes To Town". But given the choice between Phil "Shoot Shoot" Rock Bottom "and" Doctor Doctor "and the crowd chose the latter, leaving one for the encore and left out of play.


BULLET MONKS
The theme of the opening act is usually always a lottery. Sometimes it is unbearable and can be a pleasant surprise for the good of those present, Bullet Monks fit in the second case. This is a young band, formed in 2008 and recently released an album Weapons Of Mass Destruction.'s Up Tyler Voxx (vocals and guitar), Dangerous' Dan (guitar), Spreace Jackson (bass) and M. Dogg (drums). His proposal has American flavor type Radio Moscow or Rose Hill Drive, but, interestingly come from the German town of Nuremberg, his compositions focus on a hard rock base approaches to rock and roll, bluesy touches and flashes of metal, with influences both Led Zeppelin as Motorhead. They made a great impression, and surely hear of them in the near future.


SET LIST
1) Saving Me (The Visitor)
2) When Daylight Goes To Town (You Are Here)
3) Mother Mary (Force It)
4) Let It Roll (Force It)
5) I'm A Loser (No Heavy Petting)

TRANSLATED FROM SPANISH to ENGLISH

Concert: UFO + Bulletmonks-5-December.2009-Sala Heineken (Madrid)
One more night I intended to see one of my favorite bands, one of those bands no tricks, no special effects, a band that wastes rock and roll through and through and always with the same essence and hearth in its effectiveness in live.
Before, you had to see a very young band, a German band called BULLETMONKS, a band he assembled and gathered all their instruments without the slightest protest and playing in a very limited scenario, a space that would be more limited than their own rehearsal space.
A few pints "Pepsi", "Led Zeppelin shirt and a most effective battery, stuck with a huge force and the musical result was like seeing a band in full swing in California. I liked very much and encourage you to keep this band very closely. His album "Weapons Of Mass Destruction", which played, among others, "My World's A Show", I think the issue more commercial, "Canned Insanity", "No Gain Just Pain" in which the battery had a problem with bass drum pedal and had to stop to start again, with the love of the respectable, taking a warm applause of encouragement. They closed with "Hang On Lord". These guys really have promise and tremendous energy, his connection with the audience was full and they could see them happy and pleasantly surprised by the response of staff. Teloneros well worth not getting lost.

21.15 am:
Timeliness of the room, you know that it becomes like "Cinderella" in room drinks from a specific time ...
Appearance of the band between a bluesy intro and property, with one member who surprised us all, down the legendary Pete Way was covered with a gentleman who at that time did not know anyone with an image very "Heavylona" for what is the most "London" of the other components. His name? Rob de Luca, bass player who has worked among others with Joan Jett, George Lynch and Sebastian Bach Band started. In the end we saw was not announced in the rest of tour, Barry Sparks.

The first item in sounding "Saving Me" from his latest work, The Visitor, a theme shared delicious electric guitar with acoustic guitar, perfectly installed on the right side of the stage area where we are located strategically across from Vinnie Moore. "When Daylight Goes To Town" sounds perfectly, and it would happen in the rest of the concert, great sound, I think something will have to see the lord (another historical) in charge of the table, which for years has been with the band . Andy Parker was barely seen, capped several stage amps and without it will lift a bit on the stage floor is literally overshadowed the poor, despite the size it has taken this big guy.
"Mother Mary" (first classic) could not miss these moments and look at the room and see that there is already a considerable full, without oppression, but a full fledged. Paula Raymond sharing keyboards and rhythm guitar picks up a mosque by coupling in micro and pays a milk that was about to fly off and brush the head of someone in the front rows. What has nasty chicken!.
"Let it roll," huge, "I'ma looser" in my opinion was the best theme, which was better with the complicity and humor between Vinnie and Andy Parker in sections of the song, an entire lujazo. Another song taken as a presentation of their tour "Hell Driver", this song has a guitar interpretive part where you drop your pants, I think they could finish the presentation of his latest album incorporating another terrific issue, I mean "Stop Breaking Now "but this was left out of hype.


They continued the concert with "Cherry" from their "less known? Fenomenon, "Only You Can Rock Me" on staff embers up, surrender was complete, we were experiencing one of the best nights of UFO in a sweet moment where creativity, release albums and living specimens in their direct freshness thanks to the Vinnie Moore's hand. In previous years the same thing happened with Jason Bonham on drums, brought freshness and therefore not want to detract from the work of Andy Parker, who was masterful and enduring like a champ the whole concert. "Is not No Baby" from his Obsession, and reached the zenith, my favorite subject, more long for the memories, nostalgia for those times lived and connected to this music: "Love to Love", I have no words to reflect what It was this interpretation, coupled with the label staff, to the sound of guitar, Phil Mogg in his most elegant and bluesy tone, an interpretation that was framed in the digital camera Phil Mogg, a self-portrait that will remain in their particular gallery. "Mystery Train", a theme that served to take a breather and give Phil a shock to beer green that gives the room its name. "To Hot to Handle" was used for the decoration of Vinnie Moore playing guitar on his back and taking cameos on bass response of the occasion, with replica of Vinnie playing the final single Hendrix style to his mouth. Thanks and farewell game with immediate claim and playing the first part of the BIS. "Lights Out" nothing more, nothing less ... concluded this topic respectable Phil asked what song he wanted to continue and popular acclaim that song was "Doctor Doctor" which was sung by the entire room. As a farewell and closing a main course: "Rock Bottom" which had a long final and most precious to the guitar again, an issue that raised the admiration and official recognition to this monster to the ropes, with a thunderous ovation in the final cut of the chorus.

Great live concert friends and great opportunity that I have received from friends CIRCLE ROCK in my first review.
