All Systems NO!  Vinnie Vincent Postpones Memphis Show’s

Fool me once.  Shame on me.  Fool me twice… In what has to be the least surprising thing reported today, Vinnie Vincent’s upcoming shows at Graceland have been posponed.  Recently billed as a “Full Shred”, it was initially going to be an acoustic story tellers type of show.  But as the official Facebook post said, Vinnie had been talking about it (Full Shred) for a few weeks before making it official.  But it seems apologies are…

JESUS CHRYSLER – …Deny It All Later (Album Review)

JESUS CHRYSLER – …Deny It All Later (Album Review)

JESUS CHRYSLER – Bio Jesus Chrysler. The hottest band in the land…named Jesus Chrysler. The name immediately invokes a reaction. You may think the band is Christian, Satanic, offensive or just harmless and a clever play on words. I fall in the latter. Besides, WWJD – What Would Jesus Drive? He’s not rocking a Kia. Jesus Chrysler has a new sister album – or second side – to their last release Make Bold Statements… called…

THEM EVILS Rip Up The Turf Club (Concert Review)

THEM EVILS Rip Up The Turf Club (Concert Review)

Somewhere in the early 2000’s, rock got stagnant. After decades of one form of rock making for way for yet another, newer form of rock, everything kind of ground to a halt with up and coming bands sharing one sound and image.  While some have proclaimed rock is dead, their overall statement could be made about all forms of popular music since that time.  But the tides of rock are changing.  For the better.  With…

RED SUN RISING – Thread (Album Review)

RED SUN RISING – Thread (Album Review)

Samson cut his hair and got weaker.  Red Sun Rising cut their hair with a similar result. Red Sun Rising is back with their sophomore album Thread (Out March 30th).  Hoping to build on the success of their debut release Polyester Zeal, Thread in many ways is a more consistent record.  Initially I found “Deathwish” an odd selection for a lead single.  Being almost epic in nature it sort of dares you to pay attention. …
