is translation of a review from the RAFABASA
in SPANISH to English, although gramatically incorrect,
it will give all the English speaking fans a flavour of the Barcelona
gig. I know that Phil will enjoy reading this... its a great review.
March 2004: Barcelona, Spain. Razzmatazz 2
was growing from the audience to see their hero, Phil Mogg and UFO.
started with Midnight Train and people became crazy. The present formation
of UFO is of total luxury. Usual the Phil Mogg to the voice, Pete
Way to low and Paul Raymond to the guitar and keyboards. It is necessary
to add to the son of the legendary battery of LED Zeppelín,
Jason Bonham and to grandísimo American guitarist called Vinnie
Moore, known very well by the lovers guitar-heroes. Vinnie had the
difficult mission to make forget (impossible thing, I create) Michael
Schenker. They followed with the fireproof Mother Mary. The band seemed
very compact in scene. Phil Mogg controlled without problems tempo
of the concert.
When Daylight Goes To Town was the first subject
that sounded of the new disc, You Are Here. He is
the one that the album opens and one of my favorites. I cannot more
than to say than the atmosphere and the heat was very high at that
time. Fans young and less young could be seen all over the room. A
great combination for a perfect night of hard-rock. Let It Roll, Is
a.m. To Loser, This Kids... the subjects continued falling like a
machine gun. Jason Bonham struck with hardness its battery, I believe
that he was fantastic. I think that it did not disappoint to anybody.
It was possible to be verified what great vocalista continues being
Phil Mogg. For this man they do not spend the years. Streamlined figure
and a voice that for himself many singers of nowadays wanted to it.
Everything an example of professionalism and quality. They presented/displayed
more subjects of the new disc, The Wild One and Call
Me, in the middle of who they put in a huge Fighting Man.
Memory to have leido that Phil Mogg had declared that as much Vinnie
Moore as Jason Bonham had given a new touch him, of freshness and
youth to UFO .
And it is certain. You Are Here is a work it jeopardize, of doubtless
benefits and seems the beginning of a new and fruitful time for this
band. I have already said before Vinnie Moore had it complicated to
please fans staunch of Schenker. I cannot think by the others but
to me it convinced to me. Of course which we cannot compare it with
Schenker, neither we must, I create, at least I... because Schenker
is he and or is. I put the same example that with Deep Purple and
the case Blackmore-Morse. Clear that the band I liked more with Blackmore...
were the Purple... but Steve Morse has given back to the illusion
and good music to Gillan and company to him (another style, yes but
filled with good subjects). I do not compare to Moore and Schenker.
I only value the work unfolded by first and I catalogue it of excellent.
He is a great musician. It went of less to and it ended up more enjoying
equal or more than the own public. A very good single one was marked
and fulfilled its assignment without no but.
Only You Can Rock is another one of the unforgettable subjects of
UFO that become in indispensable... a jewel of hard. It followed a
subject to him that was hoping with desire. Extraido de You Are Here
and with a great mixture of acoustics and melodía, Baby
Blue affected and demonstrated the great song to me that
is. Phil Mogg sang like never before. Pete Way throughout moved like
a possessed person the concert. Slight attitude hers! An authentic
provoker. Much more discreet it was the performance and attitude of
Paul Raymond, in the right corner of the scene. They also presented/displayed
another new subject, Jello Man. and for the end of
celebrations, Love To Love, Too Hot To Handle (sounded treeeeeemendo)
and the unmistakable Lights Out.
This they ended but of course, they returned. And how... they attacked
with 3 great ones you encore: the powerful Bottom Rock (of the best
thing at night), Doctor Doctor and Shoot Shoot.
of this concert is of ten. An extraordinary night of rock. Good sound,
a great band with great songs and fans. I augur good years to him
of new successes to UFO ... and sure that they return nothing else
presenting/displaying a new disc can.
