SHARK ISLAND – I Hear MORC Calling (MORC Spotlight)

SHARK ISLAND – I Hear MORC Calling (MORC Spotlight)

Here’s another band participating in MORC West whose introduction for me came via a movie soundtrack from my younger days. This band was a huge bucket lister for me. I never dreamt I’d ever see them live. The 1988 movie Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure was a massive hit with my friends and I.

Soundtracks from both films were popular rotations in our cars or at cottages etc. Buried deep on the second side of the Wayne’s World Soundtrack Cassette was a song titled “Ride with Yourself” by Rhino Bucket. What an odd name! But none the less this hidden gem…

MONSTERS OF ROCK CRUISE Changed My Life.

MONSTERS OF ROCK CRUISE Changed My Life.

The seeds of the traveling concert addiction for me officially began with something called the Monsters of Rock Cruise, more affectionately known as MORC in 2012. (MORC 2012 Recap Article) After seeing the lineup for that inaugural voyage I said to myself “self it will be the end of your life if you’re not on that ship”. I also said, “you’re an idiot, that’s a long way to go and an assload of coin to…
