James Leg - A Forest


Thursday, time to check out a tune for this weeks cover song!

"A Forest" is a song by the English alternative rock band THE CURE. Co-produced by Mike Hedges and THE CUREs Robert Smith, it was released as a single from the band's second album "Seventeen Seconds" on 8 April 1980.



"A Forest" tells a vague story of the pursuit of a girl in a forest, which ends in a loss. Many fans and critics regard this song in particular as a good example of THE CUREs unique sound.

This song is behind a famous incident. At the 1981 Werchter Festival in Belgium, The Cure were on before Robert Palmer and were just finishing their set. Robert Palmer, apparently getting a little pushy, tried to have his road crew hurry The Cure off the stage. Robert Smith responded by sassily informing the crowd that they couldn't play anymore, then played an extra-long 9-minute version of "A Forest." Bass player Simon Gallup put a stamp on the performance by shouting "F--k Robert Palmer" to a cheering crowd!


Today's cover of the tune "A Forest" made by JAMES LEG, a pretty remarkable version with distorted Hammond, the Clip is filmed live at Le Bootleg Bordeaux 03/11/2015, enjoy!


THE CURE play "A Forest" at the "Rock Werchter Festival" on july 2, 1981. This is the infamous "f***k Robert Palmer, f**k Rock and Roll" episode where the Cure were told they had to cut their set short, obviously not to the amusement of Robert Smith, Simon Gallup and Lol Tolhurst.

Blackwülf - Sinister Sides


The long-awaited third album from Bay Area dark, heavy rockers, BLACKWÜLF, featuring the fantastic guest lead guitar work of doom legend, Geof O'Keefe (PENTAGRAM/BEDEMON), who adds his chops to three tracks!

Employing the guitar pyrotechnics of Pete Holmes and the Banshee wail of Alex Cunningham, combined with a rhythm section for the ages, BLACKWÜLF bring out all the best of what is stoner/doom and pure heavy rock.

This is hard riffing doom rock with a great melodic touch!




A gorgeous gatefold LP with fractal art!

Pure Vintage Rock and Roll. Blackwulf’s new album is packed full of classic style riffing and hooks to keep you indulged for many future streams, spins, or whatever have you. Moments of this banger are straight up Stoner infused Doom, but Blackwulf managed to nail the vibes of several variations of rock and roll that can’t be pinpointed to just one band. Sinister Sides is a powerful collection of tracks that is probably considered their best release yet. Consider this a “must have” for Riff lovers!

Visit ripplemusic.bigcartel.com/products to order the album including the Limited Edition vinyl!

Today's tune is "Sinister Sides", the title tune of the new album, released Feb 23rd. Video shoot and Production: Scott Hester

Earthless - Black Heaven


Monday, new week, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

"Black Heaven" is the fifth studio album by the San Diego-based trio power trio, EARTHLESS. A band known for the instrumental jams thru out the years and now suddenly guitarist Isaiah Mitchell found out that he can do two things, play the guitar and sing, woohaa, and with drummer Mario Rubalcaba and bassist Mike Egington who adds a solid rhythms to the tunes. So with "Black Heaven" we get an EARTHLESS with a twist, nothing bad about it at all, on the contrary, it gives the music much more substance, a meaning, and facelift of an already classic band.



"Black Heaven" is a six tune album with full of mind-bending riffing, classic rock-influenced kraut with a light psychedelic atmosphere. The album opens up in a typical EARTHLESS style, improvised rock with the great album starter "Gifted by the Wind", melodic and catchy boogie, same formula is used on the next following songs "End to End" and "Electric Flame", as well as closer "Sudden End", the first single and video is the sub-two-minute punky "Volt Rush", a fast, full-power and all-go-down-hill tune. The title tune, "Black Heaven", starts with the ZEPPELIN alike intro, blending guitar riffs and soloing by Isaiah Mitchell. "Black Heaven" is a solid and well composed album with a great deal of spontaneity.

Nice looking Vinyl!


Sum: A boldness effort by EARTHLESS with "Black Heaven" ends up stronger than ever, don't miss this one!

Today's tune "Volt Rush" suites perfect as a week starter, enjoy!
