50 YEARS AND NO BISS SILENCE - Half a century ago EPITAPH were founded

09. July 2019

50 JAHRE UND KEIN BISSCHEN LEISE - Vor einem halben Jahrhundert gründeten sich EPITAPH

Epitaph's career began in the winter of 1969/70. And that in the cellars of the Dortmund music club Fantasio. Success in the USA came quickly - but also financial difficulties, which led to the multiple break in the band's history. But the group around the British guitarist Cliff Jackson and the German bassist Bernd Kolbe proved to be long-lasting. Their new album "Long Ago Tomorrow" will be released in time for their golden anniversary.

eclipsed: Band foundation in 1969 - how did you experience this great year of rock, keyword: Woodstock?

Cliff Jackson: So most of the bands on Woodstock back then were actually unknown. Santana, for example. The cult festival in Scheeßel was more popular with us. At that time there weren't that many music magazines reporting about it, only the "Bravo". After all, in England it's the Music Maker.

SANTANA - Blues Magic (4:25)
Album: Santana IV (2016)
Label/Distributor: Santana IV/Thirty Tigers/Alive

A fascinating album that not only takes up the spirit of the early Santana in its title. If you listen to the new songs of the guitar magician, you immediately get the often quoted 'Woodstock-Feeling', also with the atmospheric "Blues Magic". Produced in a pleasantly old-fashioned way and yet never old-fashioned at any time. Album of the month!
