MEISTER’S Top Ten of 2018 (Top Albums 2018)

MEISTER’S Top Ten of 2018 (Top Albums 2018)

The time of year has once again rolled around and is fast closing in. I feel suffocated, drowning. Like caught in the garbage compactor with Luke, Leia, Chewie, and Han I feel the walls closing in. This is for me the most difficult time of year and hardest Decibel Geek task to perform. A top ten is simply not enough for me. I need a top 30…or even 50 would be great! But alas, it…

LITTLE CAESAR – Live In Sweden (Concert Review)

LITTLE CAESAR – Live In Sweden (Concert Review)

A mathematical thing. 30 years. Over 10 failed attempts. 4 different countries. What does it add up to? 1000’s of tears. Tonight, I cried. I openly wept warm salty tears of disbelief and happiness. After approximately 30 years and over 10 false starts, I finally witnessed Little Caesar live. Little Caesar hit the music scene in 1989 with their self-titled debut and the cover of Aretha‘s “Chain of Fools”. I’ve followed the band since then, almost 30…

LITTLE CAESAR – Live in Newcastle Feb 25, 2018 (Concert Review)

LITTLE CAESAR – Live in Newcastle Feb 25, 2018 (Concert Review)

It has been a long 28-year wait to see Little Caesar live, another one of those bucket list bands that I truly never expected to see live. The past few months have been pretty kind to me bucket list wise. A lot of my favorite albums that played a big part in me growing up were released in 1989/90. And a lot of those bands have visited the UK recently! I still remember the first…

LITTLE CAESAR – Eight (Album Review)

LITTLE CAESAR – Eight (Album Review)

I think we all have those things in life that offer comfort and contentment. Call it your “happy place”. It could be a special blanket, an old photograph or the smell of that old baseball mitt but for me personally, these “things” often come in the form of music. Whether it be discovering new bands and new music or dusting off some of my classic CDs there is not a faster way to my “happy…

LITTLE CAESAR – Eight (March 16, 2018)

LITTLE CAESAR – Eight (March 16, 2018)

US rock n roll survivors, Little Caesar have signed a global deal with Golden Robot Records for the release of their new album Eight on March 16, 2018. Little Caesar fuse no-nonsense hard rock that harks back to 70’s giants such as Bad Company and Humble Pie with an aching ZZ Top groove and overlay it with classic R&B melodies to produce some mighty fine straight up good time rock and roll! Eight is the band’s first…

JUNKYARD and LITTLE CAESAR Live in Indy (Concert Review)

JUNKYARD and LITTLE CAESAR Live in Indy (Concert Review)

It’s funny how things work out sometimes. Every once in a while, all the pieces fall into place, and something really cool happens… Earlier this year, my husband’s favorite band, Junkyard, were announced to be playing at The Rockpile in Toronto. Since Chris (my husband) had been spending so much time in Canada, while we were working on my immigration to the US, and Junkyard being his favorite North American band, we figured it was a…

Little Caesar – Brutally Honest, Live In Holland (Album Review)

Little Caesar – Brutally Honest, Live In Holland (Album Review)

Rock and roll is full of stories, sometimes shovelled with copious amounts of bullshit and other times just the simple truth is enough to provide shock and awe. There is nothing I love more than getting to share one of these tales, so come gather round and let me tell you one particular cool story about some long-haired tattooed rockers… I often refer to the 80’s as the golden age of heavy metal. By 1983…

Little Caesar – Brutally Honest Live in Holland (May 06, 2016)

Little Caesar – Brutally Honest Live in Holland (May 06, 2016)

Soulful rockers Little Caesar has a live album coming soon! The band’s Facebook page reports: “Brutally Honest is in the final stages of mixing. It was recorded live in Holland in 2015. It’s a double CD and as the title suggests, there are no overdubs, clean ups, pitch corrections or any of the other studio tricks that make a live album “controlled” or falsely polished. It’s the first live release in our 30-year career. It…

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,…
