The Funk Brothers

The Funk Brothers were a group of Detroit-based session musicians who performed the backing to most Motown recordings from 1959 until the company moved to Los Angeles in 1972. They are considered one of the most successful groups of studio musicians in music history; the Funk Brothers played on Motown hits such as "My Girl", "I Heard It Through the Grapevine", "Baby Love", " I Was Made to Love Her", "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone", "The Tears of a Clown", "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", "Heat Wave". There have been many articles written that identify members of the Funk Brothers, some of which claim that every musician who played on a Motown track was a "Funk Brother". There are 13 Funk Brothers identified in the film Standing in the Shadows of Motown; the same 13 members were identified by both NARAS for the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and were recognized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The role of the Funk Brothers is described in Paul Justman's 2002 documentary film Standing in the Shadows of Motown, based on Allan Slutsky's book of the same name.

The opening titles claim the Funk Brothers "played on more number-one hits than the Beatles, Elvis Presley, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys combined." This figure, 39 number one hits spread across several Billboard charts, is indeed dwarfed by the collection of Motown chart toppers the Funk Brothers are thought to have backed. Motown released more than a hundred U. S. R&B number one singles and more than fifty U. S. Pop number ones between 1961 and the studio's relocation to Los Angeles in 1972, on which some combination of Funk Brothers always served as personnel. In 2007, the Funk Brothers were inducted into the Musicians Hall of Museum. Early members included Earl Van Dyke. Hunter left in 1964, as bandleader by Van Dyke. Uriel Jones joined the band as a third drummer. Late-era bassist Bob Babbitt and guitarist Dennis Coffey both joined the ensemble in 1967. While most of Motown's backing musicians were African American, many from Detroit, the Funk Brothers included white players as well, such as Messina, Brokensha and Pittsburgh-born Babbitt.

Unlike their Stax Records backing-band contemporaries Booker T. & the M. G.'s in Memphis, until the release of the Standing in the Shadows of Motown documentary, the members of the Funk Brothers were not known. Studio musicians were not credited by Motown until Marvin Gaye's What's Going On in 1971, although Motown released a handful of singles and LPs by Earl Van Dyke; the Funk Brothers shared billing with Van Dyke on some recordings, although they were billed as "Earl Van Dyke & the Soul Brothers", since Motown CEO Berry Gordy, Jr. disliked the word "funk". Alternatively, the name "Funk Brothers" could have been given to the band ex post facto. In the Standing in the Shadows of Motown documentary, Joe Hunter states that the name "The Funk Brothers" came from Benny Benjamin. Hunter states that Benjamin was leaving the studio after session work, paused on the stairs and said to his fellow musicians, "You all are the Funk Brothers." The band was informally named. The Funk Brothers moonlighted for other labels, recording in Detroit and elsewhere, in bids to augment their Motown salaries.

It became a worst-kept secret that Jackie Wilson's 1967 hit " Higher and Higher" did not have a Motown influence quite by accident—the Funk Brothers migrated to do the Wilson session, in an interesting reference to Motown's early history: Berry Gordy, Jr got his first music break by getting Wilson to record some of his songs in the 1950s. Various Funk Brothers appeared on such non-Motown hits as The San Remo Golden Strings "Hungry For Love", "Cool Jerk", "Agent Double-O Soul", " Testify" by the Parliaments, "Band Of Gold", "Give Me Just a Little More Time", blues giant John Lee Hooker's "Boom Boom". After he found out about the Edwin Starr session, Gordy fined members of the Funk Brothers band for moonlighting for another label. Gordy bought out Wingate's label and his entire artist roster. Motown historians have noted that the Funk Brothers—some of whom had begun their careers as jazzmen and missed that kind of informality—itched to be able to record on their own, but Gordy limited them formally to cutting sides under the name Earl Van Dyke and the Soul Brothers—and limited them to recording new versions of the Motown repertoire, with Van Dyke, the featured musician, playing electric organ.

Twin Falls (Oregon)

Twin Falls is a waterfall located in the Silver Falls State Park at the east end of the city of Salem, in Marion County, in the U. S. state of Oregon. It is located in a privileged area on the west foothills where Mount Hood National Forest meets with the Middle Santiam Wilderness. Several prominent waterfalls are located in the Park along Trail of Ten Falls: South Falls, Drake Falls, Lower South Falls, Winter Falls—among others. Twin Falls is created along the course of North Fork of Silver Creek and it sits on the east section of Silver Falls State Park Trail of Ten Falls, along Canyon Trail towards North Falls Trail a quarter mile of Middle North Falls, it received its name. Twin Falls is the third smallest along the Trail of Ten Falls and can't be viewed from the official view point on Canyon Trail; the falls drops into two channels over an angled basalt ledge, creating two veiling curtains 31 feet high. The far side channel will reduce its flow during the summer and becomes nearly impossible to visualize as it runs so close to its adjacent cliff.

Morgul

Morgul is a Norwegian symphonic black metal band formed in Råde, Norway in the year 1991. In 1991 Morgul soon recorded two demo-tapes: Vargvinter & In Gowns Flowing Wide, which were spread through the underground; this managed to garner them a deal with Napalm Records. The band at this time consisted of Hex, on drums and main-man Jack D. Ripper on guitars, bass and vocals. Together they released two albums: Lost In Shadows Parody Of The Mass.. Parody Of The Mass being recorded at Abyss Studios in Sweden by Mikael Hedlund from Hypocrisy created interest for Morgul within the underground and soon the media mentioned them to be THE hidden treasure within the black metal scene. In the year of 1999 Morgul signed to Century Media Records and started working on new material that saw the band breaking the boundaries of a somewhat over-crowded black metal genre and came up with a more varied and personal sound; this album marked a change in producer and studio. Every album including and following The Horror Grandeur has been produced by Terje Refsnes at Soundsuite Studios in the south of France.

It's of interest that prior to the recording of The Horror Grandeur and Jack D. Ripper parted ways musically for personal reasons, leaving Jack D. Ripper sole responsible persons for Morgul; the only guest musician on The Horror is Pete Johansen an amazingly talented violinist from Western Norway. 2001 Morgul enters the studio once again to record Sketch of Supposed Murderer. This would be Morguls last album under the label Century Media. April 2002 Jack D. Ripper entered Soundsuite Studio to record the entirety of vocals for Swiss band Meridian on their 1st album "The Seventh Sun". Earlier in the year Meridian had won Metallians demo contest, which led to a record deal with Season of Mist. 2004. After much hesitation and thoughts of leaving the music scene all together Morguls front man re-enters Soundsuite and self finances "All Dead Here". Once again this album features Pete Johansen on violins. 1 year the album is released on the label Season Of Mist. Jack D. Ripper is now residing in the United States.
