SNEW – You’ve Got Some Nerve (Album Review)

SNEW – You’ve Got Some Nerve (Album Review)

It’s not SNEW, s’old to me! Somehow, somewhere I came across the band SNEW and their 2008 CD SNEW You. I also crossed paths with the 2014 single “Thunderdog” or maybe that’s where it all started? No idea, but a great track in any case! Then while attending a pool party ahead of the Monsters of Rock Cruise in sunny Miami, SNEW CD’s were among the prize packs distributed to partygoers. Most folks were going…

DAMN DICE – Thriller Killer (Album Review)

DAMN DICE – Thriller Killer (Album Review)

Damn Dice kinda came at me from out of nowhere. Sure they contacted me through the Decibel Geek email board to submit their forthcoming Thriller Killer album for review. But I didn’t expect what I heard. I envisioned, for some reason, another 80s sound clone type band that never really quite reaches the target quality of that golden era. So many bands fall into this sub-par category if you ask me. Perhaps it’s because I…

ROADKILL – Ruled by Machines (Album Review)

ROADKILL – Ruled by Machines (Album Review)

In early January of last year (2017), I discovered a band, album, and song that got its hooks in deep. From the first “click” on the video suggestion that popped up in the sidebar while checking something else out on YouTube, I was hooked. I usually ignore those things, but for some reason, I clicked this time. The song was “Ready for War” from Hobart, Tasmania’s Roadkill. I reviewed the album, E X T I…

STRIKER / LUTHARO – Velvet Underground Toronto (Concert Review)

STRIKER / LUTHARO – Velvet Underground Toronto (Concert Review)

Unleash the Archers are coming to Toronto. Meh. Supporting them are Edmonton’s Striker. Now that I’m in for. A longtime fan, I’ve never seen Striker in concert as yet. Throw in local support Lutharo, who my friend Jamie O’Toole has been telling me I need to see since forever. I’ve traveled further and paid more just to see supports and openers! So, I find myself at Velvet Underground on Queen Street Toronto on a Monday…

MIA KLOSE – Stronger (Album Review)

MIA KLOSE – Stronger (Album Review)

UK based Swedish singer Mia Klose first came to my attention thanks to Sweden Rock Festival. In 2013 I made my inaugural trek trans-Atlantic to attend my first Sweden Rock, not my last! Prior to departing Toronto for the adventure, I performed my due diligence on many, many bands of the 80 act roster that were completely unknown to me. Sadly, I found little to nothing on Mia Klose in the way of albums for…
