|Not only that, the Church (since the Roman Emperor Constantine I) took advantage of Christ for political/religious purposes, and in that way the Godess was forgotten, meanwhile the feminine role has been dealing with that up to these days. Not that I'm a feminist or anything like it.|
Yes this DaVinci Code is a thought provoking topic, could turn Christianity as we know it upon it's head. I agree that the Godess as a deity has been forgotten, since the rise of patriahcal religions, and women still have a way to go to achieve a more level playing field. Being a feminist doesn't have to mean you have to belong to the sterotypical image of a feminist ie man hating, butch looking female.
Anyway regarding Mikes music...
|Both name, music and images have a reason why, from Tubular Bells to Light+ Shade. |
I thought Tubular Bells was so called as Viv Stanshall announced the instruments and placed the emphasis on the "Tubular Bells" . Mike had hit the bells so hard they had bent, so he arrived at the album title and cover artwork. I believe TB is one young man's pent up energy and emotions. Listen to the 1971 Demos of TB, so much raw energy there, (move over the Sex Pistols). Mike is a truly talented composer/mucisian:D, that's why his music appeals to me . Take "Oribadoo" does the word Oribadoo have any meaning or is it just a nonsense word? I think it's just nonsense. Mike was an iconoclast, an innovator in that he broke the mould for rock music. The standard LP format was a series of 3-5 minute songs, punk bands seemed to take this step backwards in time, the three minute song was done years before punk. Granted some bands broke that general rule, but to simply name your pieces after the album title , let alone put any easily understandable lyrics to the music was unheard of.
