“恐怖海峡”(Dire straits)成立于70年代,其唱片畅销全世界,被誉为超级摇滚乐队。这支乐队的成员由Mark Knopfler(Vocals/Guitar)、 David Knopfler(Guitar,1980由Hal Lindes代替)、Pick Withers (drums,1982由Terry Willians取代)。受到英国传统影响的关系,他们的音乐风格清新质朴,具有蓝调摇滚的味道,属于一种人们易于接受的慢摇滚,有似唱非唱,似说非说,是带着呢喃的吟唱。既具有摇滚的叙事性与说白感,又比摇滚乐优雅松弛,营造出一股强烈的音乐氛围,使我们不仅感受到现代音乐的激情,又能体会到传统音乐的温馨。

  他们的成功,应归功于他们那深受鲍勃.迪伦(Bob Dylan)影响的演唱风格和乐队吉他手马克.诺夫勒(Mark Knopfler)那无与伦比的吉他演奏技巧。另外马克的演唱带有很浓的说唱风格,他磁性十足的声音,令无数歌迷为之疯狂。所以有人说恐怖海峡其实就是马克.诺夫勒个人的感情宣泄。它们音乐背景基本来自于另一位英国吉它大师艾瑞克.克拉普顿(Eric Clapton),再溶入了已让人遗忘的早期摇滚乐和清新脱俗的民谣,由吉它缓缓倒出慵懒而恬静的气氛,这在他们的专辑中得以体现。

  马克.诺夫勒是乐队的灵魂人物,他在从事音乐之前当过记者和教师。他的文化素养较高,同时又吸收了鲍勃.迪伦的创作和演唱手法,这就使“恐怖海峡”乐队一开始就被严肃音乐圈子里的人所接受奠定了基础。乐队创立之初曾在伦敦各高级酒吧中进行巡回演出。不久,他们用120英镑录制了一张示范唱片(demo),其中就有他们的经典之作《摇摆之王》,这张唱片被伦敦电台采用。1978年,他们录制了名为《Dire straits》的唱片,尽管乐评家们对他们纯熟的专业技巧赞叹不已,但这张唱片却没有引起英国歌迷的关注。后来,这张唱片在大洋彼岸引起了轰动。有一天,乐队突然发现他们的名字出现在美国流行歌曲排行榜上。接着,他们的唱片在英国也开始成为抢手货。在乐队蒸蒸日上的时候,马克.诺夫勒曾一度离队,同他仰慕已久的鲍勃.迪伦进行合作。1982年以来,恐怖海峡乐队先后出了《爱比金坚》、《手足情深》等唱片,每张都成为世界上最畅销的唱片之一,其发行量达2000万张。

  恐怖海峡于1985年出了一张精选专辑,是该乐队最为经典的一张唱片,里面的每首歌曲都值得您细细品味。其中的《Money For Nothing》(金钱关系)、《Brothers In Arms》(手足情深)、《why worry》(何缘忧伤)、《so far away》(直到现在)、《the man's too strong》(强壮的男人)等都是乐队的经典歌曲。

Dire Straits emerged during the post-punk era of the late '70s, and while their sound was minimalistic and stripped down, they owed little to punk. If anything, the band was a direct outgrowth of the roots revivalism of pub rock, but where pub rock celebrated good times, Dire Straits were melancholy. Led by guitarist/vocalist Mark Knopfler, the group built their sound upon the laid-back blues-rock of J.J. Cale, but they also had jazz and country inflections, occasionally dipping into the epic song structures of progressive rock. The band's music was offset by Knopfler's lyrics, which approximated the winding, stream-of-conscious narratives of Bob Dylan. As their career progressed, Dire Straits became more refined and their new maturity happened to coincide with the rise of MTV and the compact disc. These two musical revolutions from the mid-'80s helped make Dire Straits' sixth album, Brothers in Arms, an international blockbuster. The band — along with Eric Clapton, Phil Collins, and Steve Winwood — become one of the leaders of a group of self-consciously mature veteran rock & rollers in the late '80s that designed their music to appeal to aging baby boomers. Despite the band's international success, they couldn't sustain their stardom, waiting a full six years to deliver a follow-up to Brothers in Arms, by which time their audience had shrunk significantly.

Knopfler (born August 12, 1949) was always the main force behind Dire Straits. The son of an architect, Knopfler studied English literature at Leeds University and worked briefly as a rock critic for the Yorkshire Evening Post while at college. He began teaching English after his graduation, leading a pub rock band called Brewer's Droop at night. By 1977, Mark was playing with his brother David (guitar) and his roommate John Illsley (bass). During the summer of 1977, the trio cut a demo with drummer Pick Withers. A London DJ named Charlie Gillett heard the demo and began playing "Sultans of Swing" on his BBC show Honky Tonkin'. Following a tour opening for Talking Heads, the band began recording their debut for Vertigo Records with producer Muff Winwood in early 1978. By the summer, they had signed with Warner in America, releasing their eponymous debut in the fall. Thanks to the Top Ten hit "Sultans of Swing," Dire Straits was a major success in both Britain and America, with the single and album climbing into the Top Ten on both sides of the Atlantic.

Dire Straits established Dire Straits as a major force on album-oriented radio in America, and their second album, Communique (1979), consolidated their audience, selling three million copies worldwide. As the group was recording its third album, Knopfler left the band to pursue a solo career; he was replaced by former Darling member Hal Lindes. Like its predecessor, Making Movies was a sizable hit in America and Britain, even though the band was criticized for musically treading water. Nevertheless, the record went gold on the strength of the radio and MTV hits "Romeo and Juliet" and "Skateaway." Dire Straits followed the album two years later with Love Over Gold, an album filled with long, experimental passages, plus the single "Private Investigations," which became a number two hit in the U.K. The album went gold in America and spent four weeks at number one in Britain. Shortly after the release of Love Over Gold, former Rockpile drummer Terry Williams replaced Withers.

During 1982, Knopfler began exploring musical avenues outside of Dire Straits, scoring the Bill Forsyth film Local Hero and playing on Van Morrison's Beautiful Vision. Apart from releasing the Twisting by the Pool EP early in 1983, Dire Straits were quiet for the majority of 1983 and 1984, as Knopfler produced Bob Dylan's Infidels, as well as Aztec Camera and Willy DeVille; he also wrote "Private Dancer for Tina Turner's comeback album. In the spring of 1984, the band released the double album Alchemy: Dire Straits Live and by the end of the year, they had begun recording their fifth studio album with their new keyboardist, Guy Fletcher. Released in the summer of 1985, Brothers in Arms was Dire Straits' breakthrough album, making the band international stars. Supported by the groundbreaking computer-animated video for "Money for Nothing," a song which mocked music videos, the album became a blockbuster, spending nine weeks at the top of the American charts and selling over nine million copies; in England, the album became the biggest-selling album of the '80s. "Walk of Life" and "So Far Away" kept Brothers in Arms in the charts through 1986, and Dire Straits played over 200 dates in support of the album. Once the tour was completed, Dire Straits went on hiatus for several years, as Knopfler produced records by Randy Newman and Joan Armatrading, scored films, toured with Eric Clapton, and recorded a duet album with Chet Atkins (Neck and Neck, 1990). In 1989, he formed the country-rock group Notting Hillbillies, whose sole album, Missing...Presumed Having a Good Time, became a British hit upon its spring 1990 release. During the extended time off, John Illsley recorded his second album; the first appeared in 1984.

In 1990, Knopfler reconvened Dire Straits, which now featured Illsley, Clark, Fletcher, and various session musicians. The band released On Every Street in the fall of 1991 to great anticipation. However, the album failed to meet expectations — it only went platinum in America and it didn't crack the U.K. Top 40 — and failed to generate a hit single. Similarly, the tour was a disappointment, with many tickets going unsold in both the U.S. and Europe. Once the tour was completed, the live album On the Night was released in the spring of 1993 and the band again went on hiatus. In 1996, Knopfler launched his solo career with Golden Heart.
