R.I.P. – Street Reaper (Riding Easy Records)

“It’s early 2017, and time for more doom.” What is that a quote from, I metaphorically hear you ask? Well, it’s the opening line for my January review of R.I.P.’s first album of 2017, in fact their first album, ‘In… Continue Reading →

Tribute To Ron Asheton – Featuring Iggy & The Stooges (Wienerworld /MVD)
