So glad you made it!

Hey, music-lover! Welcome to the, er, place chez Trey Roque.

Trey's a singer-songwriter operating out of Prague, Czech Republic. This ain't Nebraska, Toto, but we got kolache!

Lyrically? His songs are about men and women, friendships, dogs, and this whole-life-thing thing.

Musically? His songs are about 3 minutes long. Tops.

Sounds like? We think, "Bowie meets Beck on the back of the bus". Why not find out for yourself? 

And let us know what handle we can put on his music, as we're uberly-bad at doing so.

 

Trey's Way – The Blog

Initials B.B. 

Even today, for men of a certain vintage, there is a shift of blood to body parts* at the mention of French chanteuse, provocatrice and all-round symbol-de-sex, Brigitte Bardot.

As with many icons of the 60s, many are the imitations, but few have the secret sauce. (And how does one stand on the shoulders of diminutive giants anyway?). Not only was BB délicieux to look at, she actually had quite good pipes, and could carry a tune. Which, again, bar-99% of moppets today can't do either.

Axl/ DC – Roquin' It For Real 

Here at Power's Towers we couldn't believe the reflected light into our eyesockets that Axl Rose would be playing with AC/DC on their latest tour.

Like, that's about as crazy as G'n'R getting back together.... Er! Hold up!

So, we pulled some money from down the back of the couch and ponied up for a ticket. Front of stage, naturally.

The verdict is – 100% pure roquin' entertainment. There are two litmus tests for how good a show is:

1. You're totally forgetting all your life shiitake and what a knob you might…Read more

Sabbath Lives!!!.... Hold On A Minute...? 

Much as we love our Brummie boys in black, there's really only so many decades we can listen to their classic shiitake before wearing out the MP3s.

Happily – yes, in a dark and throbbing way – there's one of Ty Segall's bands, Fuzz. With two albums under their bullet belt, and the first being the most positively dullest LP since the Velvet Underground, who knows FTW is coming next. But t'will be evvy. Verry.

Sisyphus, Seals & Stamina 

Here at Power's Towers, we like to think ourselves a bunch with catholic tastes*. No, not dodgy stuff with kitsch and child abuse, but a healthy diet of just about anything marked 100% genuine.

To wit: fab podcasts, fabulicious books, fabulastic musique, fabtasian live shows, fabagastic movies n tv, fabazing ideas and peeps who help us get through the day. Basically, anything altogether ab-fab.

If you can handle the metaphors and true stories of war, and a double helping of Brazilian Ju-Jitsu talk, then check…

Bands We Like

The Franklin Electric. Deffo check out the title track. Plus, lots of birds in the art! FTW!

Genesis – Duke. A very personal connection to the only Genesis LP Trey likes. Buy it wherever.

The much missed Elliot Smith. Oscar winner and torch songster for nerds.

We were into Serge Gainsbourg long before the hipsters. It's a long story. Seriously.

Joni Mitchell kicked ass. A phenomenal songwriter, singer and musician. Trey is deeply in debt to her, if you're canny enough to spot the references.

Lou Reed was always an asshat. But once upon a time he was a talented one. And if you didn't know him personally, that was okay. Check out the Sugarplum Fairy reference Trey makes in an upcoming album.

Ken Scott, while no muso, was key to some of the best music of the early 70s. In other words, the best music ever. His fingerprints are all over some uberly amazing recordings. David Bowie, Mahavishnu Orchestra, the Beatles, Devo and, yes, Lou Reed.

No need to introduce the White Stripes. Other than the fact that Meg is always welcome chez Roque, were she to plomp her butt down on the drum stool.

Was once a time when you weren't allowed a girlfriend if you liked Rush. Happily, along with the ability to code, this is no longer de rigeur. Trey now wishes he could code....

Elvis ain't dead. Along with his early days thumping sardonicism, he also wore specs. Kewl. (Here's a rare cut that means a lot to any fans of Scully).



Now for the mind-blowing stuff.

Remember when you would switch the TV on and some wild shiitake would give you a trip? Well, here's the Mahavishnu Orchestra. Heavy metal never sounded so good. 


John upped the ante (and this is one of Miles Davis' guitarists here, y'know) with Shakti. The only guitarist that makes Trey wish he had chops. (Ass kicking begins 0:42).

This is a more than fair rendition of Bartok's most popular piece. We dare you to play this full volume at night, with the lights out.

Another movie favourite. Spot how many times it's used.

Trey's reprobate uncles would wear the gear for this early 70s phenomenon, but hadn't a scooby about the foundations.
