Grand Royale give us the Breaking News

  Grand Royale give us the Breaking News For all the cool kids out there that just need the facts then this album is for you. It has all the hallmarks of a classic, sure different from the bands other albums, but the Swedes have hammered out a classic here so toddle off and get your hands on one of the best releases of the year. For those that like a bit more detail, the word is that Breaking News by Grande Royale is a straight up, rock album with solid riffs and thundering bass. It has more hooks than a bait shop and it is as progressive as it is vintage. Gang vocals, catchy choruses and killer lead vocals all add up to an album that...

JESS AND THE BANDITS SMOKE AND MIRRORS

Jess & The Bandits proved with their critically acclaimed debut album, Here We Go Again, that they were a musical force to be reckoned with. Boasting a rock country sound delivered with raw and real grit and an infectious pop punch, the band have enjoyed the loyal support of BBC Radio and TV. While they last toured the UK at the end of a riotous festival season in 2016, the quintet are finally set to return to the live circuit with Smoke and Mirrors – the long-awaited follow-up to 2015’s #6 Official Country Chart charting Here We Go Again. With lead vocalist Jess the happiest she has ever been, the writing process for upcoming...

ALBUM REVIEW: Godsmack’s Sully Erna takes us down an enjoyable middie of the road journey on Hometown Life GODSMACK have sold millions of album, but what some fans have missed is the solo work of singer and guitarist Sully Erna. The talented front man is about to release his latest solo effort ‘Hometown Life’ (September 29th) and it is a massive departure from the sound of Godsmack. Indeed, on first listen it is a middle of the road release so beloved of American bands trying to gain wider airplay. That initial listen almost makes Nickleback seem edgy, but then when you delve deeper this is varied and raw. Narrative...

ALBUM REVIEW: Peter and the Test Tube Babies on form with That Shallot EVER since Peter and the Test Tube Babies released their song ‘The Queen Gives Good Blow Jobs’ we knew they were something special. Although bundled along with the likes of Splodgenessabounds’ they were more straightforward and felt more ‘punk’. Their irreverent lyrics were offset with tight precise writing – favouring the short, sharp tight arrangements. Over the years they have not mellowed despite growing older. If anything they sound more bitter – and that’s not a bad thing in context. With the imminent release of new...

Def Leppard 30 years

REVIEW: Hysteria 30 years on gets a re-issue. Is it worth it the outlay for the re-masters? IT’S hard not to be cynical when a plethora of re-issues emerge to mark a significant anniversary with multiple formats. But then again those albums mark moments in our youth when music marked coming of age. With 30 years gone since Def Leppard released ‘Hysteria’ the band have marked it by offering a clatter of formats all re-mastered. Truth be told we have ruminated on this for some time. The feeling about this is much the same we have about Metallica issuing a re-mastered series of Master of Puppets. Both Leppard and...

Prawn – Run

  Prawn – Run Although they were formed in 2008, I must admit that I have not ever heard of Ridgewood quartet Prawn, even though they have released two full-lengths, two EPs and three singles in their emo, post-rock style since their inception. This new record ‘Run’, which...

  Devilfire – Dark Manoeuvres Although you may not have heard of the Birmingham-based band Devilfire, I am almost certain that you may recall the name of the mind behind the new melodic hard rock quintet. They are the brainchild of Alex Cooper from Quireboys fame, and this debut album...
