Walter Trout - They Call Us Working Class (but we ain’t workin’ anymore)


New Jersey-born blues-rocker Walter Trout (born 1951, Ocean City, New Jersey) spent decades as an ace sideman, playing guitar behind the likes of John Lee Hooker, Big Mama Thornton, and Joe Tex.
In 1981 be became the guitarist for blues rock band Canned Heat. This led to an invitation to play in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers where he shared the stage with guitarist Coco Montoya. He left the Bluesbreakers in 1989 and formed the Walter Trout Band which developed a successful following in Europe.
On the 2006 release Full Circle, Trout realized his dream of creating an album with some of his most admired musicians, including John Mayall, Coco Montoya, and Joe Bonamassa, among others. Walter is out on tour with his Radicals and they visit Stockholm & Debaser yesterday and gave the audience a great evening.
All i can say that im still stunned after his handling with the guitar, he knows what he is doing and he is a real master on it. The crew was great and i really like the little extra when the backline tech "Andrew" jumped in on guitar and vocal.
Todays tune is the new one, enjoy!

Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody

Sat down and wanted to decide one of my rock favorites but nothing felt right.

This song felt right in some odd way.

Queen

My first Queen album Sheer Heart Attack I traded away..for...hm..what was it...ah yea Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. Ah well, Freddy Mercury that did 90% of what Queen is,
Im sorry all Queen fans but thats my opinion.

Did u guys know that in 2003, four new songs were recorded by Queen for Nelson Mandela's campaign against AIDS.
In 2006 May and Taylor announced that they gonna have a reunion, with Paul Rogers
And they even did an album called The Comos Rocks and that album saw the daylight in 2008, shame on me I havent heard it yet.. ah well ill dream away a bit and enjoying this tune hope u do as well.

Bruce Springsteen - Tougher Than The Rest


Today its time for a classic, its Bruce time :)
Well this tune is good, taken from Tunnel of Love, his eighth studio album released in 1987.

After the tremendous success of Born in the U.S.A., Springsteen took his foot off the throttle quite a bit on Tunnel of Love.

"Tougher Than the Rest" was released as a single in some countries, but was not released as a single in the United States. Although it was not released as a single in the United States, it reached as high as #3 on the Swiss charts, and also reached the Top 20 in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Austria.
Like much of the Tunnel of Love album, "Tougher Than the Rest" was recorded in Springsteen's home studio, called Thrill Hill East, between January and May of 1987 with several members of the E Street Band. On this song, Springsteen played several instruments and is backed by Danny Federici on organ and Max Weinberg on percussion. Although it was originally written as a rockabilly song, the final version has a slower and more methodical rhythm.

Enjoy!

Zodiac Mindwarp - Prime Mover


Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction are a British hard rock group.
The band is the brainchild of Mark Manning, a graphic artist and editor of London's Flexipop magazine. Deciding to experience the debauchery of life as a decadent rock star, he assumed the alter ego, Zodiac Mindwarp, and formed the Love Reaction in the mid 1980s together with guitarist Cobalt Stargazer (real name Geoff Bird), who curiously enough once also played for Wham!. Other band members who came and went over the years include Kid Chaos (real name Stephen Harris), Slam Thunderhide, Evil Bastard, Trash D Garbage (real name Paul Bailey, now playing guitar with Creme Brulee), Flash Bastard (real name Jan Cyrka), Suzy X, Tex Diablo, and Robbie Vom.
Zodiac co-wrote the track "Feed My Frankenstein" which appeared on the Alice Cooper album Hey Stoopid. Zodiac Mindwarp and The Love Reaction recorded their own version of the song which appeared on the album Hoodlum Thunder.

Today Zodiac and his Love Reaction played @ Harry B James, to bad i didn't have the chance to visit the gig but, i will honor him with a tune.

Leather Nun - Gimme Gimme Gimme


The Leather Nun were a Swedish rock group. Careening from garage rock to goth and industrial, Leather Nun became cult heroes in their native land.
The Leather Nun was formed in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1979 by Jonas Almquist (vocals), Bengt "Aron" Aronsson (guitar), Freddie Wadling (bass), and Gert Claesson (drums). The band took its name from the American underground comic Tales from the Leather Nun, although some claim that it was taken from the stage name of a London stripper.
Inspired by such groups and artists like Throbbing Gristle, Velvet Underground, Ramones and Roxy Music, The Leather Nun recorded their debut EP, Slow Death, in 1979. John Peel played this song every night for two weeks on his BBC radio programme. Wadling left The Leather Nun in 1982 and joined Blue for Two. A handful of singles followed before The Leather Nun released their first LP, Alive, in 1985.
Covering ABBA's "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme" earned the group some respect in Sweden and Europe in 1986. Several successful tours followed. In the end of May will The Leather Nun give 2 shows to celebrate thier 30 yrs. anniversary.
Enjoy todays tune.

Korn feat. Xzibit - Fight the Power

The mixing things has been a kinda successful thing to do, specially when the ingredients has been carefully selected.
I think that hardcore Rap, things with great attitude is mixing well with hard rock as in this example.
Xzibit and Korn, doing the old Public Enemy song, not to bad.

This Song can be found on the "xXx2: State of the Union" Soundtrack!

Enjoy

The Verve - Love Is Noise


British rock band The Verve released a new album "Forth" last year, i havent really payed much attention to it, i dont really not sure why, perhaps i got to much with the last or i havent been convince with his solo things.
Although Ashcroft is contractually obligated to record another solo album, Jones doesn't feel that will interfere with the group's future, as he stated: "All of us want to pursue this (continuing as The Verve). It's something that means a lot to all of us." Added to this he mentioned the possibility to tour North America "towards the end of this year or the beginning of the new one" and that "this [reunion] definitely is an ongoing concern; it's not something that we're all just gonna chuck away again"
Anyway, got hold on the latest album and have listen to it and yes i do like it.
"Love Is Noise" was the first single from the album witch is also todays tune.

With his new band Spice And The RJ Band (where the R is representing drummer Bob Ruben and the J stands for Johann, a long-time friend and ex-roadie of a previous band of Spice) they are playing around in the stoner rock genre and they are combining pure heavy metal with the necessary psychedelic influences.

D-A-D - Sleeping My Day Away

More D-A-D, as promised i will deliver a classic one, i could say that this is the biggest tune they have "Hit list Vise"
Its a great tune indeed.

And i was lucky to have some time over to get a few shots during that night.
Its with my pocket camera so not the best quality.



Stig's bass guitars only have two strings, some even only one string. Stig designs his own bass guitars based on his own ideas and imagination. I really like the rocket one, its so far out as it can be.



And yes the band closed their live performance with the song It's After Dark. As they usally do.
And yes, D-A-D is in very good shape and sounds great live so dont miss them.

Todays tune is from Roskilde Festival .01.07.2005

As of February 2009, the band has released six studio albums. Their sixth album, The Century of Self, was released on February 17, 2009.
