Bush Tetras, Queen V, Church of Beers, Stark, Inhuman, Peter Golding, Cosmosonic, Redcoats, Society High, Toilet Boys, Claws of Paradise, The Rollo Treadway

February March!!

Nothing's gonna get me down!


Just in time for Valentines Day, BUSH TETRAS send me “Very Very Happy” - Crunchy guitars, killer grooves and vocals to die for – action packed songs that mix well with whoever your dating. Long before alternative and corporate punk, no-wave ruled the day... get an earful and get happy. The disc also includes three videos for your pleasure.


As good as it sounds... 24-HOUR CHURCH OF BEER sends me “The Incredible Impoliteness of Being” - All the way from 666 Swillin’ Row, Lasqueti Island, B.C. Canada with a kick in the ass, great songs for cutting loose and drinkin booze. Fire it up and burn it down, monster guitars and one hell of a bottom line.

Still the best bitch on the block – THE TOILET BOYS send me “Sex Music” - Glam rock that rolls with the best of “em, dangerous tunes that rip ya in two and come back for more. Massive guitars and vocals from the edge, great songs that deliver. The only thing better is seeing them live, XOXOXO.

In case you missed ‘em, THE REDCOATS send me “Live at Arlene’s Grocery” - Recorded 6.17.07 – a mix of indie, rock and blues that soars above the din of the 9 to 5. Alex, Keith, Matt and Nick are on the verge of something...
look for them kickin it at a bar near you.

Thirteen songs from a dirty glass... SOCIETY HIGH sends me “Leave the Gun Take The Cannoli” - Mosh pit friendly tunes that will have ya flying around the room, ripping guitars and third rail vocals – turn it up loud and piss the neighbors off!

Great stuff... CLAWS OF PARADISE send me their latest and I’m all smiles. This one’s full of surprises, right turns from the passing lane kind of shit. Imagine Frank Zappa and the guys from Morphine go drinking with the Jersey Devil, fabulous guitars, drums and a three piece horn section to seal the deal.

“Junk Rock... For Lovers!” check out the latest from THE COSMOSONICS, swaggering glam-n-roll sensations from Pittsburgh. Turn it up to eleven and lets get pissed, midnight guitars and broken glass vocals – back alley tunes gunning for you.

Sweets for the sweet, QUEEN V sends “Death or Glory”. A drop dead disc with all star support featuring Jon Paris, Tom Morello, Vernon Reid, Ron St. Germain and Lemmy Kilmister on my favorite track ‘Wasted’. Eighteen wheel heavy rock-n-roll that will have ya screaming for more – look for her as she takes on the world.

Smell the carnage – INHUMAN send “Last Rites” - Black metal with all the trimmings, rapid fire drums, razorblade guitars and hell on earth vocals. Before they put you in the earth get an earful of this one... WMD sold separately.

STARK's new cd "Put It To Your Head" comes out with a bang. Just like a woman, sometimes hard, sometimes gentle, sometimes you just can’t get enough of it. Stark has got what you need, when you need it!

PETER GOLDING - King of The Kings Road becomes King of the Blues. Multi talented Peter Golding, originaly of stretch jeans fame, is “Stretching The Blues” for you blues officianados. This will give you the fix you’ve been looking for. His talent for the harp and piano will blow you away. With special guest stars Ottis Grand, Doris Troy & Slim Jim Phantom, not forgetting all the talent in the band he has gathered around him, makes this cd as smooth as silk, and a guarantee to keep the winter blues at bay.

Indigo (UK)

Dig the ransom note packaging - THE ROLLO TREADWAY send me their latest soft mellow rocker. The sixties in full bloom, LSD cool, far out tunes that will have ya tripping sideways. Great songs for drinking in the afternoon or watching your laundry go round and round.
