关于我

我不可能做到别人要求我做每一件事,我只有足够时间去做我该去做的事情。如果我无法把每件事情都作到尽善尽美,这便意味着我想做的事情已经超过了我该去做。认清了自己的人生坐标,我的生活变得更为简单了,作息安排也更为合理。 魅力由它而生,它是苦难的根源,也是塑造坚强现在的原因。愿意相信别人,能够承担别人的信任,相信别人却是极其艰难的决定。心底的秘密存在于过去,找到那个能接受过去的人,就能有勇气焚毁所有的担心,融化冰封的城堡,让世界大地回春。

还记得90年代风靡一时的Blur吗?你知道关于Praklife不为人知的秘密吗?

自从我们都知道了90年代的《乡愁》,自从18年前"Parklife"位居榜首,我们认为应该为大家展示一些关于英伦摇滚精粹唱片(Parklife)不为人知的秘密。

1. The band originally planned to call the album ‘Soft Porn’, and wanted to feature an image of Buckingham Palace on the sleeve.

3. An alternative cover for the album featured a fruit and veg stall in London's Portobello Road. Another potential shot for the album sleeve was a William Hill betting shop window that caught Damon’s attention. Initially a complete window including other sports - besides greyhound racing - was created for the cover.

 一个可供选择的封面是在伦敦波多贝罗路的一个卖水果蔬菜的货摊的特写镜头。另一个可供选择的的封面上是达蒙正注视着威廉希尔彩票销售部的窗户。最初在这个方面上,透过这扇窗户还可以看到其他场景,包括正在奔跑着的格雷伊猎犬。

4. ‘This Is A Low’ was lyrically based on a souvenir tea towel Alex James had bought Damon.

 《在低谷》的灵感来源于亚历克斯?詹姆斯送给达蒙的一个纪念品茶巾。
5. Before the album came out Damon Albarn said, “When our third album comes out, our position as the quintessential English band of the 90s will be assured.” He was right... kind of (hello Oasis!)

 在唱片集发行前,达蒙?阿尔伯恩说:“当我们的第三张唱片发行时,我们作为90年代英国精英乐队的地位将确定下来。”他是对的,但颇有聊以慰藉的意味。
6. Alex James said that his song 'Far Out' was difficult to write. “I hadn’t sung a lead vocal before. When we got back from Sweden I’d written a song about the stars and the moons that had been preoccupying me. That was one of the hardest things to get right,” he said.

 亚历克斯?詹姆斯曾提到他的《远离尘世》是很难创作的。他说:“我在那之前从未领唱过。从瑞典回来后,我创作了一首关于星星月亮的歌,它们深深地吸引了我。这是恢复到正常生活的最艰难的事情之一。”

7. Damon reckons 'Parklife' is misunderstood. “I don’t think anybody understood the irony. ‘Parklife’ is an angry record.”

 达蒙认为"Parklife" 别误解了:“我觉得不是每个人都能理解它的讽刺意义,这张唱片表现的主题是愤怒。”
8. The CD booklet features a drawing by Graham of a transvestite.

一个叫 噶拉罕的异装癖者的绘画作品是这张CD小册子的亮点。

9. An early demo version of 'To The End' featured Justine Frischmann singing the parts later sung by Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier.

 在《直到最后》的一个早期的版本中贾斯汀?佛利希曼唱的部分后来被拉提夏?莎碟演唱了。
10. Damon on 'Parklife' in 1995: "It’s a loosely linked concept album. It’s the travails of the mystical larger-eater, seeing what’s going on and commenting on it."

 1995年,达蒙说:“这是一张观念联系并不紧密的唱片。这像是神秘的饕餮认清现状并对此发表评论。”

11. "It was an album we really enjoyed making," recalled Graham Coxon. "When we wrote 'Girls and Boys' we realised that there was something worth expanding on. Damon was getting into a really good stream lyrically and we were all kind of inspired."

 噶拉罕?考克森回忆说:“我们非常享受录制这张唱片的过程。在我们创作《男孩女孩》时,我们实现了相当默契的合作。当达蒙畅游在一条清澈的小溪中时,我们都有了灵感。”

12. Graham Coxon added: "We centered in on the greyhounds because they had an aggressiveness we liked. We chose the ones with the most teeth. They look deranged, just longing to kill, and there's a bizarre look in their faces. You just don't get that look with a footballer - well maybe a little bit."

 噶拉罕?考克森补充道:“我们都喜欢格雷伊猎犬是因为它们身上的进取精神。我们选择了牙齿最多的一只。它们看起来是疯狂的,总想着杀生,而且它们的脸很特别。当你看一个足球运动员时你不会想到格雷伊,也许偶尔会想起。”
13. To get ready for the shoot the band had some pints at Camden's Good Mixer before departing for Walthamstow Dogs.

 在去运沃森斯道犬之前,为拍摄做准备,他们在卡姆登的混合器上喝了点酒。

14. Chris Thompson, who helped design the cover, revealed that the band's sartorial choices on the sleeve photos were planned. "The things they were wearing coincided with the different visuals we were projecting," he said. "Everyone would turn up with a tie on and Alex would get told off if he had a funny coloured scarf on. It was very consciously controlled."

 克里斯?汤普森(封面设计助理)透露,Blur对封面照片的选择早有打算。他说:“他们的着装要与不同的主题相一致,每个人都打着领带,要是亚历克斯围着一条滑稽的围巾的话他就得解下领带。一切都在条不紊地在计划中进行。”
15. Alex James blames 'Parklife' for triggering a descent into debauchery. In his book, A Bit Of A Blur he wrote: “As Parklife gathered more and more momentum I slipped anchor and blew adrift on the shallow sea of a permanent backstage party. There was always one more place to got and I leaped into London’s deep and dark night.”

 亚历克斯?詹姆斯抱怨"Parklife"引起了放荡和堕落。在他的书中--《浅读Blur》中写道:“Parklife 让我越来越有推开主持人的冲动,随风飘到一个在海上举行的永久性的后台聚会中。世界上有很多地方可以去,我却偏偏跳入了伦敦的深沉的黑夜中。”
16. 'Lot 105' refers to the Hammond organ Damon plays in the song, acquired at an auction for ?150.

 《抽签105》指的是达蒙在这首歌中演奏的哈蒙德牌电子琴拍卖获得了150英镑。
17. The song 'Parklife' was the first time Graham had played the saxophone on a Blur record.

 在"Parklife"这首歌中,噶拉罕是在Blur历史上第一次演奏萨克斯。

18. On 'The Debt Collector' it's Graham that you hear counting in. You can also hear him tapping his foot and standing on a tambourine like a busker. This was because he wanted it to sound like a Tom Waits track. Phil Daniels was originally supposed to narrate this track but due to no words having been written at this stage he narrated 'Parklife' instead.

 在《收债人》中你才知道噶拉罕加入进来。你听到他跺脚,他是一个鼓手像一个街头艺人。这是因为他想让这听起来是汤姆?葳茨的作品。菲尔?丹尼尔斯本打算叙述这些事情,但由于在那阶段还没有记录下这些文字,所以只能用"Parklife"代替。
19.The title ‘Magic America’ was inspired by an Italian porn channel.

 《梦幻美国》这个标题的灵感来源于意大利的一个色情频道。
20. According to Alex, ‘This Is A Low’ was originally about “people taking smack.”

 据亚历克斯说,《在低谷》最初是关于人们吸食海洛因的主题。
