Prince dies at 57

Prince, who pioneered "the Minneapolis sound" and took on the music industry in his fight for creative freedom, died Thursday at age 57.

"It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57," said his publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure.
Earlier Thursday, police said they were investigating a death at the Paisley Park studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
A massive outpouring of grief followed on social media. Some are saying the icon's death "is what it sounds like when doves cry," a reference to his monster hit from 1984.

The singer's fame never waned through the decades, but he was considered synonymous with the 1980s. His fame reached a fever pitch with the 1984 film "Purple Rain," about an aspiring musician, his troubled home life and a budding romance.

Just this month, Prince made news, but it wasn't for his music. He said he wasn't feeling well, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and canceled a concert date in that city. Some days later, he took the stage in Atlanta to perform. After that concert on April 14, the singer's plane made an emergency landing, Noel-Schure told CNN. At the time she said, "He is fine and at home."
Prince won seven Grammy Awards and earned 30 nominations. Five of his singles topped the charts and 14 other songs hit the Top 10. He won an Oscar for best original song score for "Purple Rain."

The singer's predilection for lavishly kinky story-songs earned him the nickname, His Royal Badness. He was also known as the "Purple One" because of his colorful fashions.

His sound was as unique and transfixing as he was. He created what became known as Minneapolis sound, which was a funky blend of pop, synth and new wave.
Controversy followed the singer and that, in part, made his fans adore him more.
"Darling Nikki," a song that details a one-night stand, prompted the formation of the Parents Music Resource Center. Led by Tipper Gore, the group encouraged record labels to place advisory labels on albums with explicit lyrics.

Prince left his imprint on so many aspects of popular culture from movies to sports to politics. As the Minnesota Vikings prepped to take on the New Orleans Saints in the 2010 NFC championship game, Prince wrote a fight song, "Purple and Gold," to inspire his home team. The Vikings lost. He was the halftime performer at the Super Bowl in 2007.

Last year, while addressing the unrest in Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray in police custody, Prince released the song "Baltimore." He performed at a benefit concert in the city and gave a portion of the proceeds to youth groups there.

Music Velocity Radio Show (let's talk about Sarah pt.I) 12.02.2016 Tracklist

Sarah Records was a UK independent record label active between 1987 and 1995, best known for its recordings of indie pop.

The label was formed in Bristol in 1987 by Clare Wadd and Matt Haynes, and grew out of the fanzine scene at the time, Haynes having previously edited Are You Scared To Get Happy?, and Wadd Kvatch. Both these fanzines had given away flexidiscs - indeed, AYSTGH had been part of the Sha-la-la organisation, a record label set up solely to produce flexidiscs. Several Sarah releases were fanzines and flexi-discs, as it was felt this summed up the aesthetic of the label better than 12" singles and albums.

Sarah Records was usually seen as being grounded in the C86 jangly indie-pop sensibility, though the late Seventies DIY scene and independent yet stylish and imaginative labels such as Postcard Records, Factory and Creation, plus the mid-Eighties fanzine culture, were bigger influences. It ceased operation with the release of There and Back Again Lane, the hundredth release in the main catalogue sequence - a booklet telling the story of the label, along with a CD of representative tracks. Half-page adverts entitled "A Day For Destroying Things" in both NME and Melody Maker marked the release. "We don't do encores", the advert announced, and the label has stuck by this sentiment, with no further releases. Bands on the label included Heavenly, East River Pipe, The Orchids, The Hit Parade, Even As We Speak, Boyracer, Brighter, Blueboy, The Field Mice, Another Sunny Day, Shelley and St. Christopher.

Haynes subsequently established Shinkansen Recordings, where many Sarah artists went on to record; he now edits a zine, Smoke, dedicated to writing and art inspired by London.

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Today it was the first part of Music Velocity's feature to the legendary Sarah records. The tracklist of today's show was:

1. Aberdeen-When it Doesn't Matter
2. Blueboy-Try Happiness
3. Harvest Ministers-6 o'clock is Rosary
4. Heavenly-Cool Guitar Boy
5. The Wake- Henry's Work
6. Brighter-Maybe
7. Another Sunny Day-Green
8. The Poppyheads-Cremation Town
9. Tramway-Maritime City
10.The Sugargliders-Will we Ever Learn
11.St. Christopher-Day Yes to Everything
12.The Hit Parade-Now the Holiday's Over
13.Shelley-Reproduction is Pollution
14.The Field Mice-It isn't Forever
15.14 Iced Bears-Unhappy Days

Music Velocity is a project that begun in 1999 out of pure curiosity and with one certain goal. To express the love of its owner about everything that is related to music and culture.

Since then Music Velocity has gone over different phases but never deviated from the goal. From a fanzine, to a column on free presses, and from booking bands to its own radio show, it never stopped to shout out loud that "music is what feelings sound like"

At the moment Music Velocity is located in Gothenburg,Sweden and starts a new journey into the world of music through K103 Göteborgs Studentradio.

Join us every Friday from 14:00-15:00 in an hour full of different kinds of music from different eras and let the music express what words cannot.
