Today’s music is by Paul Simon, whose Homeward Bound Farewell Tour pulls into Vancouver on May 16. Always liked this video with Chevy Chase. The song was from his 1986 album Graceland:

Simon, now 77, has a career spanning six decades, beginning in 1964 as half the duo Simon & Garfunkel, which split up in 1970 at the peak of its popularity. They released this song in 1966, which has gone through my head every time I’ve sat waiting for a train:

Today’s music is Canadian band Alvvays, who played Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom this week. The video blends the band into archival footage from Expo 67 in Montreal:

Jazz pianist Cecil Taylor died this week. Not easy listening, but his improvisation pushed the boundaries of jazz, His music was once described as Bartok in reverse:

The Angel Easter Sale – 20% off Spring 2018 collection

The imagery of Easter is confusing. Why is it about Easter bunnies and eggs? Is it about rebirth, fertility, the resurrection of Jesus?

The Ancient Egyptians believed in a primeval egg from which the sun god hatched. An alternative theory, the sun was sometimes discussed as an egg itself, laid daily by the celestial goose, Seb, the god of the earth. The Phoenix is said to have emerged from this egg.  The photo to the left is Palm Sunday in Barcelona, which I took a few years ago while visiting Desigual’s headquarters.

But back to the eggs, bunnies and rebirth. That’s the imagery that the advertising world has given us. Here are a few vintage images of the Easter Bunny and Eggs mythology:

Outside our store we often hear this refrain:

Boz Scaggs had been a member of the Steve Miller band. The song was recorded in 1969 in the now legendary Muscle Shoals studio with then 22-year-old guitarist Duane Allman, who later that year formed the Allman Brothers band. He died in a motorcycle accident in 1971.  Also in 1969, Duane recorded The Weight with Aretha Franklin. The same year, Led Zeppelin released two of its seminal Sixties albums, but the most popular song in 1969 was this confection: Sugar Sugar by The Archies….Switching musical gears, this is a Paris duo called The Blaze comprised of cousins Jonathan and Guillaume Alric, who are also filmmakers:

Jonathan explained the meaning of the song: “We all have a place we call home, and we often live far from it. ‘Territory’ tells the story about a young guy going back to his family after a long time. It was, for us, a way to show strong feelings like love, and maybe the arrogance of youth. This situation is never easy — you sometimes have to fight to feel home again, in a place you don’t belong anymore. It’s a strong feeling of joy, and contradiction.”

New Desigual bags at Angel: Spring-Summer 2018

Angel has more than a dozen new Desigual bags from the Spring-Summer 2018 collection, including this reversible shopper called Lola Pacth Capri. It’s a 3-in-1 bag with a smaller bag inside (with a cherries print). It also has a cherries keychain. $149.95.

Angel has lots of new bags from Desigual’s Spring-Summer 2018 collection. Some are tropical, some have red lips and others have embroidered hearts and bluebirds. Some are also reversible bags, with a second bag that fits inside. There are backpacks, shopper-style bags, messenger bags and everything in between. And the prices are  affordable. We believe the bags below, which arrived this week, are some of the best that Desigual has produced since it first started in Spain in 1984:

This weekend, the Canadian music awards (called the Junos) are being held in Vancouver. Angel supports Canadian music and musicians but sometimes I’m amazed that I’ve never heard of a Canadian group such as this one – I recently stumbled upon this band from Saskatchewan, The Dead South, and was surprised to learn that this two-year-old video has more than 50 million hits on YouTube:

There was a nice piece in the New York Times today about Canadian singer-songwriter k.d. lang, who played her first Vancouver concert at The Savoy, the now-defunct nightclub that was located above my store (now The Diamond) in Gastown. I was amazed to witness k.d that night (a video from those early days in here). She was the craziest country performer I’d ever seen, with her cut-off cowboy boots, glasses and her swearing that she was the reincarnation of Patsy Cline, who died the day k.d. was born. I later watched her sign her first record contract (aboard a paddlewheeler named The Beaver that was cruising Vancouver’s harbour). She now splits her time living in Calgary and Portland. Kathryn Dawn Lang’s doing a 25th anniversary tour of Constant Craving:

And finally, here’s my favourite video of former Vancouver drummer Charlie Quintana, who died suddenly this week in Cancun, Mexico. His Mexican punk band was chosen by Bob Dylan to make his first appearance in 1984 on the David Letterman show  – a killer version of Jokerman, where Dylan can’t find his harmonica in the right key and leaves the stage, telling the band to keep playing until he can locate it. Charlie flashes an amused smile at his bandmates when they realize they’ve been left alone on stage, playing Letterman. But better yet, ignore the bad video and sound, but enjoy the fact The Plugz got to do this Roy Head song, Treat Her Right, during the Letterman rehearsal:

New Arrivals: Desigual for kids, Spring-Summer 2018

Desigual kids DROIDE Star Wars T-shirt. $65.95 Spring-Summer 2018 collection.

Desigual’s Spring-Summer 2018 collection for kids has arrved at Angel. The Barcelona-based clothing line has teamed up with Disney and Marvel to produce a number of pop images for the little ones, including Star Wars, The Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America and other superheroes, sometimes on the same shirt.

Using reversible sequins, one of the T-shirts for boys features the Hulk, but when the sequins are reversed by brushing your hand across them, the image changes to Captain America. There’s also another T-shirt featuring a big-mouth hamburger that has a blackboard in the mouth which your child can make his or her own images using chalk, which simply washes out in the laundry, ready for the next creative idea.

Desigual kids XAVIER denim jacket. $149.95.

For boys, Angel has chosen a cowboy/western theme, which utilizes cattle skulls, neck kerchiefs printed on shirts and some iconic imagery of the Wild West, including cacti, teepees and the sandstone buttes of Monument Valley.

For girls, we’ve chosen T-shirts and dresses with images of hearts and stars that have reversible sequins that can change colour with the wave of a hand. We’ve also selected bold-coloured reversible zip-up sweatshirts for girls, ranging in sizes for ages 5-6 up to 13-14, and blue raincoat with big drops of you-know-what.

The kids collection is expected to arrive on Monday March 5, 2018. Below are some of the exciting new styles for kids coming to Angel. Expect the Unexpected this season. Once the kids collection arrives, Angel will be offering 20% off on all Desigual for kids.

Today’s music is Who Do You Love by Vancouver band Marianas Trench, whose lead singer, Josh Ramsay, lives in Gastown and is an Angel customer. The group decided to take their $50,000 video budget and give it away through random acts of kindness and some charitible acts, including donating to a school music program. A camera crew filmed the four band members around Vancouver while spending time with their families (for Josh, that means his beloved dog). According to drummer Ian Casselman, the band was “trying to inspire people to do good things” – a good message for both kids and parents.

Here’s a photo of the band in front of Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach, Oregon:
