THE NEW BLACK – III: Cut Loose (Album Review)

THE NEW BLACK – III: Cut Loose (Album Review)

The New Black – III: Cut Loose seemed to me to be rather an odd band name as I scrolled through the list of new releases sent to me from the record company. But I thought what the hell? And gave it a quick spin to see if it was any good.  Good Morning!!!  It was quite good and I found myself easily listening to the album cover to cover on the inaugural run. The album’s title,…

The Ladies Rock On A Snowy Evening In Toronto

The Ladies Rock On A Snowy Evening In Toronto

A while back, fellow Canadian Decibel Geek Rich (The Meister) informed me that Doro and Sister Sin were heading to Toronto in February and suggested I join him. I was kind of on the fence with this one, Doro (and Warlock) was one of those bands that back in the day kind of got lost in the shuffle for me. Not that I didn’t like her music, in fact I remember back in 1987 when…

Living The American Dream Caesar’s Way

Living The American Dream Caesar’s Way

I came across the self-titled Little Caesar cassette in a bargain bin about twenty years ago, attracted by the cover art.  I flipped it over and noticed Bob Rock’s name in the producer category…..to the cash register Batman! . At that time, my friends and I thought Bob Rock was a God (Canadian as well) and anything he laid his hands to was gold, much like our opinion of Rick Rubin.  As I did every week,…

SLASH Takes Toronto to Paradise City (Concert Review)

SLASH Takes Toronto to Paradise City (Concert Review)

Veteran rocker Slash rolled into Toronto to play at The Sound Academy Sunday, September 23, 2012.  When I had first heard about the show I had mild interest but was not chomping at the bit to go. I had not been terribly impressed with his non-Guns and Roses and Velvet Revolver work.  Finding myself with a rare Sunday night off of work. I made the spur of the moment decision to trek down to T.O. and…

Load The Shotgun – SHOTGUN MESSIAH
