Idle Hands – Mana (Eisenwald)

The inventiveness of the wider metal genre never ceases to amaze and delight me. Every once in a while, a band comes along that gives a familiar sound a new twist, a twist that I did not expect, making me… Continue Reading →

Idle Hands – Don’t Waste Your Time (Eisenwald)

Band number 72,453 from the Portland Oregon area. Not sure what is in the water there but it seems to make everyone at least attempt to become a musician, thankfully with this lot, despite the title we are not completely… Continue Reading →

GWAR – Blood Of Gods (Metal Blade)

It can’t have been an easy decision to carry on after the tragic death of Dave Brockie aka Oderus Urungus at all. After all he was the alien in chief behind GWAR since they formed even if Sleazy Martini tried… Continue Reading →

Lecherous Gaze – One Fifteen (Tee Pee)

The second I started to listen to this album, I thought “California”. Lecherous Gaze, who quote Chuck Berry and The Damned as liked artists, in fact come from Oakland, so the grittier end of the state. Intriguingly, they describe their… Continue Reading →

Lemmy Kilmister: Life Beyond Motorhead Collateral Damage -Alan Burridge (Iron Pages Books)

It’s a bit surreal to be writing a review which has been at least co-created by someone who has had such a large part to play in the formative teenage years of my life. I’m not actually talking about Lemmy… Continue Reading →

The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing – Not Your Typical Victorians (S/R)

First off, this is the last time I will type out The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing; from now on they are TMTWNBBFN, an initialism that will save both my fingers from unnecessary work, and my keyboard… Continue Reading →

The Damned – Fiendish Shadows & Punk Oddities And rare Tracks (Westworld)

Oh look…it’s your old mates The Damned, back with something…erm…old! Wot?…well you weren’t expecting a new record were ya? Instead, Westworld Recordings have dusted down and re-released the live album ‘Fiendish Shadows’ and the compilation album ‘Punk Oddities And Rare… Continue Reading →

EVO ALGY – Damned Unto Death (High Roller)

EVO (Paul Evans/Paul Evo) is the guy from UK non-conformists Warfare and ALGY (Ward) is the original Tank bassist and founder. Based on their past history, I would expect a brash and harsh release, which you get in places. The… Continue Reading →

The Damned – Another Live album (Southworld Recordings)

Well this one was hardly going to be rocket science to review. After all it’s not like there’s not been enough Damned gigs that I have witnessed over the years both in the flesh and indeed on album. With the… Continue Reading →

English Dogs – The Thing With Two Heads (Candlelight)

A very good album title, as The English Dogs are very much a band with two heads, with two different versions of them out there. Forming as a punk band in the early 80’s and playing with the likes of… Continue Reading →

Peter Pan Speedrock – Buckle Up And Shove It! (SPV)

Sometimes it’s good to take a punt on something new. Usually I get the death / thrash / grind stuff to review (avoiding anything ‘prog’ like it’s a saltwater crocodile with AIDS ……..and a flick knife)  but whether it was… Continue Reading →

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

Those Cemetery Gates just keep yawning open and since I reviewed “that book” about those that passed through them and those who survived against the odds I seem to keep having more artists who would be entirely relevant turning up… Continue Reading →
