How 'It Might Get Loud' Revealed a Simple Truth About Three Legends
It Might Get Loud, a documentary of sorts featuring Jimmy Page, the Edge and Jack White, remains a must see for the rock fan. Heck, you can even hate Led Zeppelin, U2 and the White Stripes, and still get something out of this movie. Seriously. Released on Aug. 14, 2009, the film provided individual histories of each guitarist, told in a non-linear fashion. Eventually, the trio meet in a summit of sorts, with the discussions and righteous guitar playing taking place in a temporary sound stage set up in a barn. The documentary portions didn’t really provide much in the way of new information, but I’m sure that wasn’t the point.

April 3, 2019 | FT Alphaville | By Jamie Powell.music publishing = the business of licensing songs for films, television and advertising. Valuing [a record label's] music catalogue is... crucial for anyone looking to bid for a stake in the business.Despite the prominence of new music, established artists are still fundamental to recorded music's success. .......So let's think about these golden oldies as assets. Assets whose appeal has, arguably, only been heightened by the advent of streaming which, with its recurring revenues and growing audience, has made recurring payments from established acts even more bond-like in their cash flow consistency. But like fixed-income assets with long durations, these cash flows are also sensitive to the smallest assumptions about their future viability. Assumptions which are not as rock solid as some investors might imagine. Let's use The Beatles as a point of reference here, as "The White Album" was UMG's fourth best-selling album last year. (If you're asking “why The Beatles?” Well, Alphaville likes The Beatles, sure. The Fab Four could easily be replaced by its other legacy acts, such as Queen and Nirvana).But the problem for a prospective buyer is why we're a fan. To put it simply: we had no choice. We were indoctrinated.On a long car journeys to coastal summer holidays, or at home on a knackered JVC stereo, we, like many of our friends, were limited to a dozen or so records (jk: finite resources). One of which, inevitably, would be some form of John, Paul, George and Ringo (and George).Call it the cultural transmission effect. Music would be passed on generation to generation, amplified by the relative scarcity, physical space constraints and high prices of recorded media.This provided a boon for the major labels as it not only meant lower marketing costs but reissues, limited editions, and remasters became an easily repeatable trick, as younger generations grew up to become consumers themselves.......The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Bob Marley are after all, great artists. Their music will live on. But that's not the question for a perspective investor.The question is: to what degree will the royalties from these artists continue to flow? Assume Sir Paul and Sir Ringo will continue to grow exponentially richer off the back of streaming, and perhaps the quoted multiples don't look quite so mad. In this age it's hard to find assets which both grow, and have semi-predictable cash flows.But if the next generation doesn't hold the same affinity to the artists which defined the first fifty years of the pop era, where does that leave the labels' back catalogues? May we suggest: in a tougher spot than most imagine.

"I saw them on tour."Five words that nearly every music fan has uttered.Seeing a live performer on tour forever links both artist and fan to a particular venue, on a particular date, in a certain moment in time. Sometimes, the tour has a special, personal meaning to the individual fan, like the first time seeing a show with a future spouse. In other instances, a concert tour transcends live events and is a cultural moment.Vivid Seats and Consequence of Sound explore the tours that were remarkable in quality, impact, influence or attendance. The deciding factor on how to rank and include tours? Asking ourselves, "Would we want to go back in time to check out this show if we had tickets?"We limited each artist to just one tour, to promote inclusion and diversity, and strived to include tours of various genres and eras. The finished product captures memorable tours that hopefully all music fans can appreciate.Vivid Seats/Consequence of Sound Top 100 Greatest Tours of All Time24. Led Zeppelin - North American Tour 1968/1969 (1968-69)It’s telling that Robert Plant and Jimmy Page can’t leave their homes without being asked about the chances of a Led Zeppelin reunion. It tells us that reporters and fans can’t take a hint, but it also reminds us that Zeppelin, for a time, were as big as any band in the world. Like many iconic bands before and after them, critics didn’t initially get Zeppelin, panning their records as derivative and unimaginative. That’s what makes the group’s earlier tours so intriguing. They had something to prove, and their 1968 North American tour saw them go from supporting bands like Vanilla Fudge, Country Joe & the Fish, and Iron Butterfly to headlining the very same tour, culminating in concerts like one in Boston where the band transformed one album’s worth of material and a handful of popular covers into more than four hours that left everyone spellbound. – Matt Melis

“Old Lang Syne,” this will never be. It doesn’t have the required sentimentality. No, U2’s “New Year’s Day” is a political song, but a special one in that – like some of the best political songs – it started out as a love song: I want to be with you, be with you night and day … Then Bono heard that the Polish government’s brutal early 1980s-era martial law was to be lifted on New Year’s Day. The lyrics (amended to refer to the Soviet bloc’s first independent trade union, led by Lech Walesa) appear to take a hopeful turn, but instead with each pause reveal a bubbling sense of cynicism about real change: “Nothing changes, on New Year’s Day. … I, I will begin again. I, I will begin again. …” Appropriate, since it took the balance of the decade for workers’ rights to take hold in Poland.

That's not how it was supposed to play out. The Air Force had been looking to retire the U-2 last year. And its plans had called for continued expansion of Global Hawk ranks, plans that have now lost a good deal of lift. (Remember, too, that a budget draft isn't yet the actual budget. Global Hawk maker Northrop Grumman may yet find support enough in Congress for reinstatement of some or all of the funding marked for elimination.)

During the Cold War, the Hycon 73B installed in the Lockheed U-2 reconnaissance aircraft, was an essential intelligence-gathering tool of the United States. As the world's premier high-resolution, high-altitude camera, it enabled the United States to conduct routine reconnaissance in relative safety and to observe global hot spots in astonishing detail. In October1962, this B camera, as it was also known, provided positive proof of the existence of Soviet missiles in Cuba, precipitating a crisis that led the world to the brink of nuclear war. Shooting through seven glass encased windows in the belly of the U-2, the B camera recorded everyting along a 3,500 km (2,700 mile) course up to 200 km (125 miles) wdie, and it could provide up to 4000 pairs of stereoscopic photographs. The 36-inch focal length lens resolved features as small as .75 m (2.5 feet) from an altitude of 19.6 km (65,000 feet). The Central Intelligence Agency displayed this B camera in a 1972 Cuban Missile Crisis exhibit at CIA Headquarters and then, in 1977, transferred it to the Museum along with light tables and elevating tables used in photographic interpretation. Shortly after the end of World War II, Dr. Edwin Land, an eminent photographic scientist, initiated the development of a new automatic camera design with a lens barrel capable of rotating from side to side and filming from horizon to horizon. By 1953, prototype cameras were being tested for use in the new reconnaissance aircraft, the Lockheed U-2, under development by "Kelly" Johnson and his legendary "Skunk Works." The development and application of this new technology were under the auspices of the Central Intelligence Agency. The panoramic camera was a revolutionary design with image-movement compensation that allowed for the motion of the aircraft and the vibration of the engine, as well as the movement of the highly sensitive, fast, and ultra thin Kodak film also especially designed for the project.
Air Force's U-2 aircraft get new lease on life - CNET
The military standardized on three primary film widths, 70 mm, 5 inch and 9 1/2 inch. From my Navy days the biggest roll of aerial film you could buy was 2,000 ft (3411/3412/3414). The Air Force once used special order products for the SR-71 (SO-649) and I have no idea what lengths that came in From my Air Force days working on the SR-71 and U-2 program, no the film is not spliced. It's a solid length. Moreover, the film path through the Optical Bar Camera has tolerances too close and operation too rapid to risk a splice. The OBC shoots a 5-inch x 5-foot panoramic frame in stereo. It rocks forward to shoot a frame ahead of the aircraft, then rocks back to shoot the stereo frame from the rear. The film is zipping constantly through a complex path across the 5-foot-long curved film plane, across sets of 90-degree turns from the supply spool to the take-up spool. The SR-71 and the U-2 used essentially the same OBC, although the SR version was beefed up to stand much more rapid operation. The reason the U-2 still uses film is because imagery from the old system can be classified at SECRET or even less for dissemination to allied regional forces. The US digital system is still NOFORN--not for foreign dissemination. the design of the U-2 and SR-71 cameras where the personal projects of Dr. Edwin Land, who apparently had copious time off from designing and promoting Polaroid and their ghastly consumer cameras. https://airandspace.si.edu/collection-objects/camera-aerial-hycon-73b

“I would argue that not only do we like the first album most because of the familiarity, we also somewhat paradoxically like it because it’s the most novel,” Wallmark says. “By that, what I mean is that musical liking often follows what we can think of as kind of a Goldilocks principle. It needs to be this just right balance of familiarity and novelty.”

Six years ago I protested at Glastonbury over the star’s tax affairs. Tax avoidance deprives the developing world of billions: regulations must be tightened In 2011 I organised a protest at U2’s headline gig at Glastonbury. As Bono sang The Fly, a 9ft wide, 24ft high balloon was inflated at the front of the audience bearing the words U PAY TAX 2?. The protest was prompted by U2’s decision in 2006 to move their tax affairs from Ireland to the Netherlands, after the Irish government decided to cap the tax-free exemption on royalties at €225,000 (before this, artists in Ireland were not obliged to pay any tax on royalties). The aim of the action was to highlight the impact of transnational tax dodging on the developing world. In a chilling report, Christian Aid estimated that $160bn is lost to the developing world each year as profits made in poorer countries are shifted to wealthier tax havens.
