Essential: A masterpiece of celtic-folk music.
When I first heard this album, on its release, 25 years ago, I knew immediately that it would doubtless stand the test of time. Andy Irvine and Paul Brady were (and still are) some of the finest musicians/singers that Ireland has produced, and to have multi-instrumentalist/genius Donal Lunny and fiddle great Kevin Burke along for the session is simply icing on the cake.
Koko's Hideaway, the third solo disc from Austin, Texas blues/rock heavy guitar legend Van Wilks, features 15 solid tracks (nearly 73 minutes) of outstanding, compelling, hard- edged, heavy guitar driven blues/rock power trio riffage at it's best. Wilks is one of those rare gifted players who has created his own style and sound and he really "shines" on the Koko's Hideaway disc. Not only is Wilks a brilliant axeslinger, he also has an extremely cool, soulful, melodic vocal delivery that sets him apart from the rest - and far surpasses the norm. On top of which, Wilks is an excellent songwriter and riffmaster, which is clearly evident on Koko's Hideaway. This CD is highly recommended to fans of ZZ Top, Eric Johnson, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Doyle Bramhall, Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower, Johnny Winter, Rory Gallagher, Jeff Beck and any other cool outstanding blues/rock heavy guitar cats you can think of. Guitarist Eric Johnson is featured as a "special musical guest" on the killer get-down instrumental track called "Vanatized". Both Johnson and Wilks rip it up in fine, bad-ass, Texas heavy guitar fashion on this awesome jam. Other instrumentals include "Without A Word" and the title track.

Ce livre propose la «biographie d'un lieu», Le Brady, dernier cinéma de quartier parisien. L'auteur, qui y fut projectionniste dans les années 2000, a tiré de cette expérience un texte foisonnant, drôle et informé. Il met en scène ses collègues, l'increvable propriétaire J.-P. Mocky, les fondus de films «bis» (fantastique, gore, kung-fu, western-spaghetti voire moussaka, porno), mais aussi d'autres spectateurs atypiques (sans-logis, retraités maghrébins, amateurs de brèves rencontres), et tous les riverains occasionnels (prostituées, coiffeurs afro, soiffards). …
