William Faulkner said you don’t have to bother just to be better than your contemporaries or your predecessors, instead, you have to try to be better than yourself.

Stormy Mondays had spent years serving Faulkner’s phrase when they reached that garden with pathways that don’t diverge, because they are parallel like pentagram lines.

On unique nights and magical places, events occur that are nearly unreal, although they involved the percussion, the metric and the amplified sounds.

That night in Gijón, Stormy Mondays began with “Southwind”, but they were like the wind of the Cantábrico Sea, which roars and whispers, caresses the tides and raises the waves, marking the rhythm of tides like a water metronome.

Song after song, guest after guest, in that concert in the Botanic garden we enjoyed a band where Rickenbacker rhymes with pleasure, Hammond rhymes with emotion, mandolins, harmonicas, saxophones and violins are characters in a novel that has a soundtrack.

The concert in Gijón is a review of songs about fleeing the city (Out Of This Town) or love it (Take Me), on Heroes (Bowie version) or normal guys (Love Song For No One), about dreams (Here She Comes) and realities (Same Old Song). Songs where we all want to be fishermen and train drivers (Fisherman’s Blues) or just be ourselves, and be accompanied (Beneath The Gate).

The end was a “Caravan” as black as a pint of Guinness. That night even Van Morrison, that stingy guy, would have been paid a round of drinks.

- José Ramón Alcoba

Rock and roll is meant to be played live, and that’s Jorge and Stormy Mondays strongest suit. “Stormy Mondays en concierto…” is a stunning rock and roll storm. It’s a great example to show the maturity of this band, acquired along the years. They are not trying to fool no one: it’s only rock and roll, but we like it!
