SHARK ISLAND – The 666 Lounge, London UK (Concert Review)

SHARK ISLAND – The 666 Lounge, London UK (Concert Review)

It is no secret to anyone that has even heard my name, that Shark Island are my favorite band and I have had a long obsession with them since I was 15 years old. They are yet another one of those bands that I had to wait 28 years to finally see in the UK. As with many of the bands of that era, I first discovered them on Raw Power, (an hour-long music programme…

HAIR METAL HEAVEN (…or Hell?) – Day 3 (Festival Review/Blog)

The first ever Hair Metal Heaven Festival in Hull UK has wrapped up its inaugural run. I’m here to give you a brief synopsis from a Canadian who traveled the Atlantic for this first-time event.

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. Which only meant we were destined to acquire the film’s soundtrack as well. That soundtrack introduced me to a couple of bands/albums…

Buried Treasure: Shark Island – Law of the Order

Buried Treasure: Shark Island – Law of the Order

1989! I was a wordly 15 years old and just beginning to really discover rock music. A friend and I went to see the movie Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure…..a whopping seven times in the theater!
