I'm back again after several months of never finding the time or the inspiration to write my blog. I hope that I will have more of both from now on to make more regular posts!
Bobo Rondelli at the Teatro Goldoni in May 2009I love music, and I’m always on the look-out for new cds, new bands, new music to listen to. Every year I adopt a ‘cd for the summer’ which is often something that I discover during my usual fortnight in England in July and import to Livorno to play over and over again for the remaining sunny weeks. However, this year I think I am going to be exporting a cd from Livorno and taking it with me to the UK.
It's Bobo Rondelli’s latest album - Per Amor del Cielo - which I bought this morning and have been playing over and over all day, in my car, and later at home. I love the new direction Bobo has taken, so different to his upbeat, quasi-punk music of twenty years ago. His irony is still there, but he has mellowed, creating an album that is immediately likeable.
