Ted Taylor - Its Too Late (Vinyl)

The word rebetis is today construed to mean a person Ted Taylor - Its Too Late (Vinyl) embodies aspects of character, dress, behavior, morals and ethics associated with a particular subculture. However, the majority of rebetiko songs have been accompanied by instruments capable of playing chords according to the Western harmonic system, and have thereby been harmonized in a manner which corresponds neither with conventional European harmony, nor with Ottoman art music, which is a monophonic form normally not harmonized.

Furthermore, rebetika has come to be played on instruments tuned in equal temperament, in direct conflict with the more complex pitch divisions of the makam system. During the later period of the rebetiko revival there has been a cultural entente between Greek and Turkish musicians, mostly of the younger generations.

One consequence of this has been a tendency to overemphasize the makam aspect of rebetiko at the expense of the European components and, most significantly, at the expense of perceiving and problematizing this music's truly syncretic nature. The scales used in rebetiko music are the traditional western major and minor scales, as well as a series of eastern makamsinfluenced by the Ottoman classical music.

There is one component within the rebetiko tradition which is common to many musical styles within Eastern musical spheres. During the second half of the s, as rebetiko music gradually acquired its own character, the bouzouki began to emerge as the emblematic instrument of this music, gradually ousting the instruments which had been brought over from Asia Minor.

The drawing clearly shows a number of bouzouki-like instruments. Despite this evidence, we still know nothing of the early history of the instrument's association with what came to be called rebetiko. Although known in the rebetiko context, and Ted Taylor - Its Too Late (Vinyl) referred to in song lyrics, well before it was allowed into the recording studio, the bouzouki was first commercially recorded not in Greece, but in America, inwhen the Peloponnesian musician Konstandinos Kokotis — after recorded two Peloponnesian folk songs with the accordionist Ioannis Sfondilias.

The first recording to feature the instrument clearly in a recognisable somewhat more "modern" melodic role, was made inin New York. In Greece the bouzouki had been allowed into a studio for the very first time a few months previously, in October In the hands of Thanassis Manetas catogether with the tsimbalo player Yiannis Livadhitis, it can be heard accompanying the singers Konstantinos Masselosaka Nouros, and Spahanis, on two discs, three songs in all.

The amateur bouzouki player Konstandinos Kalamaras accompanied a professional Byzantine singer, Konstandinos Vorgias, and an amateur singer, Apostolos Papadiamantis. It was not until Octoberin the wake of the success of Halikias' New York recording, which immediately met with great success in Greece, that Markos Vamvakaris made his first recordings with the bouzouki. These recordings marked the real beginning of the bouzouki's recorded career in Greece, a career which continues unbroken to the present day.

The core instruments of rebetiko, from the mids onwards, have been the bouzouki, [8] [11] the baglamas and the guitar. Other instruments included accordionpolitiki Constantinopolitan lyra sometimes other lyra were usedclarinetkanonakioudsanturviolin and finger-cymbals.

Like several other urban subcultural musical forms such as the bluesflamencofadobal-musette and tangorebetiko grew out of particular urban circumstances. Often its lyrics reflect the harsher realities of a marginalized subculture's lifestyle. Thus one finds themes such as crime, drink, drugs, poverty, prostitution and violence, but also a multitude of themes of relevance to Greek people of any social stratum: death, eroticism, exile, exoticism, disease, love, marriage, matchmaking, the mother figure, war, work, and diverse other everyday matters, both happy Ted Taylor - Its Too Late (Vinyl) sad.

The womb of rebetika was the jail and the hash den. It was there that the early rebetes created their songs. They sang in quiet, hoarse voices, unforced, one after the other, each singer adding a verse which often bore no relation to the previous verse, and a song often went on for hours.

There was no refrain, and the melody was simple and easy. One rebetis accompanied the singer with a bouzouki or a baglamas a smaller version of the bouzouki, very portable, easy to make in prison and easy to hide from the policeand perhaps another, moved by the music, would get up and dance. The early rebetika songs, particularly the love songs, were based on Greek folk songs and the songs of the Greeks of Smyrna and Constantinople.

A perhaps over-emphasized theme of rebetiko is the pleasure of using drugs cocaineheroin - preza etc. Rebetiko is closely related with nightlife entertainment: ouzeritaverna Greek tavern and night centres. Initially a music associated with the lower classes, rebetiko later reached greater general acceptance as the rough edges of its overt subcultural character were softened and polished, sometimes to the point of unrecognizability. Then, when the original form was almost forgotten, and its original protagonists either dead, or in some cases almost consigned to oblivion, it became, from the s onwards, a revived musical form of wide Ted Taylor - Its Too Late (Vinyl), especially among younger people of the time.

Rebetiko probably originated in the music of the larger, mainly coastal cities in today's Asia Minor with large Greek communities during the Ottoman era. In these cities the cradles of rebetiko were likely to be the ouzerithe hashish dens tekedes with hookahscoffee shops and even the prison.

In view of the paucity of documentation prior to the era of sound recordings it is difficult to assert further facts on the very early history of this music. During the early 20th century, the main centre of rebetiko music was the multi-national port of Smyrna modern Izmir in Asia Minor.

The musicians of Smyrna were influenced not only from the eastern sounds inside the Ottoman empirebut also from the European-style music of the many European communities of the city, most notably the Italians. Smyrneiki Estudiantina was a group of musicians playing popular music for Greeks worldwide. In the wake of the Asia Minor Catastrophe and the population exchange ofhuge numbers of refugees settled in PiraeusThessalonikiVolos and other harbor cities. Many of these Greek musicians from Asia Minor were highly competent musicians.

Initially an "Athenean Estudiantina" was established with Giorgos Vidalis and some musicians of the old Smyrneiki Estudiantina.

The musical personalities of Peristeris and Toundas in particular came to have enormous influence on the further development of recorded rebetiko. While from the middle of the s a substantial number of Anatolian-style songs were recorded in Greece, examples of Piraeus-style rebetiko song first reached shellac in see above.

During the s, the relatively sophisticated musical styles met with, and cross-fertilised, with the more heavy-hitting local urban styles exemplified by the earliest recordings of Markos Vamvakaris and Batis. By the end of the s rebetiko had reached what can reasonably be called its classic phase, in which elements of the early Piraeus style, elements of the Asia Minor style, clearly European and Greek folk music elements, had fused to generate a genuinely syncretic musical form.

Simultaneously, with the onset of censorship, a process began in which rebetiko lyrics slowly began to lose what had been their defining underworld character. This process extended over more than a decade. Inthe 4th of August Regime under Ioannis Metaxas was established and with it, the onset of censorship.

Some of the subject matter of rebetiko songs was now considered disreputable and unacceptable. During this period, when the Metaxas dictatorship subjected all song lyrics to censorship, song composers would rewrite lyrics, or practice self-censorship before submitting lyrics for approval. This was, however, not bouzouki music.

The term amanedessing. The amanedes were perhaps the most pointedly oriental kind of songs in the Greek repertoire of the time. Metaxas closed also all the tekedes hashish dens in the country. References to drugs and other criminal or disreputable activities now vanished from recordings made in Greek studios, to reappear briefly in the first recordings made at the resumption of recording activity in It is notable that Rebetiko music was also rejected by the Greek Left because of its "reactionary" according to the Communist Party of Greece and subculture character and the drug references.

Recording activities ceased during the Axis occupation of Greece during World War II —and did not resume until ; that year, during a very short period, a handful of uncensored songs with drug references were recorded, several in multiple versions with different singers. The scene Ted Taylor - Its Too Late (Vinyl) soon popularized further by stars like Vassilis Tsitsanis.

His musical career had started inand continued during the war despite the occupation. A musical genius, he was both a brilliant bouzouki player and a prolific composer, with hundreds of songs to his credit.

After the war he continued to develop his style in new directions, and under his wing, singers such as Sotiria BellouIoanna GeorgakopoulouStella Haskil and Marika Ninou made their appearance. In Manos Hatzidakis shook the musical establishment by delivering his legendary lecture on rebetiko, until then with heavy underworld and cannabis use connections and consequently looked down upon. Parallel to the post-war career of Tsitsanis, the career of Manolis Chiotis took rebetiko and the Greek popular music in more radically new directions.

In he added a fourth pair of strings to the bouzoukiwhich allowed it to be played as a guitar and set the stage for the future ' electrification ' of rebetiko.

Chiotis was also a bold innovator, importing Latin and South American rhythms such as flamencorumbamambo etc. Perhaps most significantly of all, Chiotis, himself a virtuoso not only on the bouzouki but on guitar, violin and oud, was responsible for introducing and popularizing the modified 4-stringed bouzouki tetrahordho in A comparable development also took place on the vocal side.

In a young singer named Stelios Kazantzidis recorded a couple of rebetika songs that were quite successful. Although he would continue in the same style for a few years it was quickly realized, by all parties involved, that his singing technique and expressive abilities were too good to be contained within the rebetiko idiom.

Soon well-known composers of rebetika—like KaldarasChiotis, Klouvatos —started to write songs tailored to Stelios powerful voice and this created a further shift in rebetika music. The new songs had a more complex melodic structure and were usually more dramatic in character. Kazantzidis went on to become a star of the emerging laiki music.

Kazantzidis, however, did not only contribute to the demise of classical rebetika of the Piraeus style that is. That's right. And Street Hustler Boy, well He's risking it all for love. S2, E4 Creepshow A drain clog turns out to be more than just a little matted hair and soap scum.
