THE EROTICS – Stuck Between Venus and Mars (EP Review)

THE EROTICS – Stuck Between Venus and Mars (EP Review)

The Erotics – Stuck Between Venus and Mars is the new EP from the New York-based punk/glam/sleaze band. Dropping on August 24, 2018, via Cacophone Records, The Erotics deliver six songs on this slab of wax. Basically, I have never heard of The Erotics before. Until a Swedish friend started to chirp about them recently in her excitement to witness them at HRH Sheffield in early September. Then as if by magic or the call…

MAYBE NEVER – Maybe Never (Album Review)

MAYBE NEVER – Maybe Never (Album Review)

Sometimes a completely unknown band opening a show can just click with you. As an avid music listener and rabid fan of the Hard Rock/Heavy Metal genres this discovery is one of the greatest feelings. There’s no pre-conceived notions, just you experiencing the band’s compositions and live show for the first time.  Such was the case with Maybe Never out of Rochester, N.Y. My Maybe Never awakening occurred as my friend (Olivier from Sleazeroxx) and…

WILSON – Tasty Nasty (Album Review)

WILSON – Tasty Nasty (Album Review)

Detroit rockers Wilson are back with a new record titled Tasty Nasty. Fans of the band’s full blast hard rock/metal sound are in for a surprise.  Well, less of a surprise and more a shock.  If you’ve been following lead singer Chad Nicefield on Instagram, he’s been leaving cryptic clues for at least a few months that with the benefit of hindsight seem to foreshadow the evolution Wilson was in midst of. Tasty Nasty is…

KILLER BEE – Tapes from the Attic (Album Review)

KILLER BEE – Tapes from the Attic (Album Review)

Killer Bee‘s new EP Tapes from the Attic is presumably just that. Five songs cultivated from some old cassette recordings found in Anders Ronnblom‘s attic. And all five are purely 80s sounding (although the band only began recording in the 90s). Hooks, catches and choruses abound, they were recorded during the band’s first go around. Forming in 1990 and recording Raw in 1993, Cracked Up in 1995 and World Order Revolution in 1997, Killer Bee…

BUCKCHERRY, P.O.D., LIT, ALIEN ANT FARM – Gen-X Summer Tour Barrie, ON (Concert Review)

BUCKCHERRY, P.O.D., LIT, ALIEN ANT FARM – Gen-X Summer Tour Barrie, ON (Concert Review)

Ahhh the angst-filled rebellious teenage years. What a better way to reminisce and revisit them than through the music. Ok, maybe teenage was jumping the gun a bit….let’s say late teens and early 20’s. The shape of the musical landscape had changed. For all my complaining about those times, some really great bands did come out of them. Now let’s take 4 such bands and smash them all together on one bill dubbed the Gen-X…

FASTER PUSSYCAT, PARADISE KITTY & MAYBE NEVER – Rochester, NY (Concert Review)

FASTER PUSSYCAT, PARADISE KITTY & MAYBE NEVER – Rochester, NY (Concert Review)

Ahhh the road trip! Almost more exciting than the destination. I have a friend that I used to road trip to shows with, rival website editor Olivier from Sleazeroxx. Often road trips would bring us across the border into the US of A. A new city, new venue…always exciting. Somewhere we drifted apart. He got busy, I got busy. We call it the mutual breakup. Recently we have gotten back on the horse and the…

BLOODSTOCK Festival 2018 – The Complete Coverage (Feature)

Hi, with less than 2 weeks to go to Bloodstock Festival 2018 this reviewer wishes to introduce himself properly and give a little information on the festival itself. Auld Bugger’s Background I am an old rocker that started gigging back in 1979. My first gig was Whitesnake on the Lovehunter tour in the Odeon Edinburgh. The album or record that got me into the scene was Rainbow Rising. Especially the amazing voice of the late great Ronnie James…

KISS – ’78 Solo Albums, Hollywood style (Album Review, KISSmas in July)

KISS – ’78 Solo Albums, Hollywood style (Album Review, KISSmas in July)

Five decades ago, the biggest band on this continent, a free nation, conceived in Liberty, dedicated themselves to the proposition that all bands are not created equal.  Although Abraham Lincoln had died 113 years prior to KISS embarking on the seemingly impossible journey of releasing 4 solo albums on the same day, I think he would’ve been proud of how far our country had come along.  Can you imagine Lincoln in Ace’s makeup? So, to…

ARMORED SAINT – Symbol of Salvation Toronto (Concert Review)

ARMORED SAINT – Symbol of Salvation Toronto (Concert Review)

OMG! I’ve finally seen the light! The salvation I suppose one could say. It’s taken awhile but it finally happened. The albums never famously got along with me. I’ve seen Armored Saint 3 or 4 times in the past but still didn’t take to them with a rabid passion. So many friends speak so highly of them and I always wondered what I was missing. I mean, how can you go wrong with a vocalist like…

MASSIVE WAGONS – Full Nelson (Album Review)

MASSIVE WAGONS – Full Nelson (Album Review)

Massive Wagons are indeed massive, in their hometown of Carnforth in the northwest of England. So much so, that their loyal band of followers organized a huge mural of the cover of their forthcoming album, Full Nelson to be painted on a wall in the nearby town of Lancaster. On hearing the record I’m not surprised. This album is brim-full of top quality tracks. It rocks, it rolls, has variety, emotion and, in no small…
