SAINTED SINNERS – Back With A Vengeance (Album Review)

SAINTED SINNERS – Back With A Vengeance (Album Review)

Wow, it seems like only a year ago I sat down to review the debut album from Sainted Sinners. Holy crap, not even a year!! It was a strong debut filled with lots of Deep Purple/Whitesnake like grooves. So strong in fact that it took the number eight spot on my Decibel Geek 2017 Top Ten List. When I heard that David Reece and Frank Pane had begun work on a sophomore album last year,…

SAINTED SINNERS – DAVID REECE (Interview / CD Review)

SAINTED SINNERS – DAVID REECE (Interview / CD Review)

“Generation”…(insert bassline here)….“Clash”. For those that have no clue what I am referring to in the previous sentence then you are missing out on one of the coolest songs from one of the most underrated albums to come out of the eighties. “Generation Clash” was the lead off single and video to Accept‘s 1989 Eat The Heat album. The video for this song was my introduction to vocalist David Reece who stepped in as replacement…

KILLER BEE – Eye In The Sky (Album Review)

KILLER BEE – Eye In The Sky (Album Review)

The darkness has descended and the end of the year is just around the corner.  Perfect conditions to test drive some new music in the semi-light of morning on the way to the day job. Killer Bee are a new listening experience for me.  Although the band has been around since the early 1990’s, Eye In The Sky is the first release I have heard from his Canadian-Swedish outfit. As I pulled away from home,…

Sunset East at Thee Rock N Roll Residency

Sunset East at Thee Rock N Roll Residency

In 1988 an introverted 11-year-old kid, who had fallen in love with hard rock music just a couple years prior, spent his Saturday nights doing his usual routine; video games (the Nintendo kind), junk food and sodas, and the weekly viewing of Headbangers Ball on MTV. But on one particular Saturday night, he turned off Mike Tyson’s Punch Out a couple hours early and tuned into the music-channel-that-no-longer-plays-music a couple hours earlier. This night was…

Rock Review Phil & The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Rock Review Phil & The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Different people hold different opinions on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I hear and understand all of these opinions, both the optimistic ones (such as how it’s such a prestigious honour) to the pessimistic ones (like how it doesn’t really mean anything and it’s arbitrary etc). I consider myself an optimist on the subject. Hell, I spend so much time paying attention to who has been inducted, which members of bands did and…

Coverdale and Hughes Bring Their Bands to Tokyo

Coverdale and Hughes Bring Their Bands to Tokyo

Just before being selected for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, David Coverdale with Whitesnake and Glenn Hughes with Doug Aldrich visited Tokyo for a couple of shows in November and December. Deep Purple is in a bit of a renaissance right now, thanks to the selection and the continued touring of Coverdale, Hughes and a newer version of Deep Purple (Mark VIII? It’s like the Rocky sequels – I’ve lost count!), and…
