Brothers Jaime and Felipe ValenciaformedOld Wives’ Tale in 2006 shortly after making the decision to relegate their biology, chemistry, music and audio engineering diplomas to mere wall decorations.
Infected by an angst that resonated in every indie club in Miami’s design district, Jaime and Felipe joined their contrasting music personalities to create a fresh sound composed of distorted bass lines, disco beats, ripping guitars, and lyrics referencing alter-egos, heart-breaking love affairs, and one-night stands.
With their debut record,Younger Limbs,Old Wives’ Tale made a handsome impact on the Miami music scene and abroad, performing in venues such as Grand Central, The Vagabond, Rokbar and Churchill’s, as well as London’s Barfly, Madrid’s Orange Café, Paris’Le Gibus and Barcelona’s Sala Apolo along with their impressive video “Amphetamine” selected by Michel Gondry [Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind] as the "Audience Choice Award" winner in the Babelgum.comVideo Music Awardsin 2009.
LiTTLE RAMONAS have been collaborating with OWT through out these years consulting them with Juan Felipe’s styling as well as both of their released albums and Amphetamine’s video.
I had the opportunity to interview Larry Marion, one of the most recognized curators in the world of rock n’ roll memorabilia, who just published the book - THE LOST BEATLES PHOTOGRAPHS: The Bob Bonis Archive, 1964-1966.
This book contains undiscovered, unpublished and unseen for over 45 years, hundreds of the most candid, powerful and intimate photographs of The Beatles taken by their U.S. Tour Manager, Bob Bonis, as they toured the U.S. from 1964 –1966, have for the first time have been published.
These are his comments about the uniqueness of this book:
“Virtually all of the photographs that we’ve ever seen of The Beatles were posed photographs for photographers that were hired to do photos sessions… but Bob Bonis was a member of the inner circle, he was almost a family member. We hasn’t hired as a photographer, he was hired as their tour manager so he was allowed to take pictures when ever he wanted to, so the photos are very intimate and they have an honesty, a quality of them that you don’t see in other photographs of The Beatles.” Larry Marion
