  • I thought I’d go for something Welsh today since I’m still basking in the brilliance that George North showed on Saturday*.  So something Welsh and hard-hitting it is, The Best of Budgie.  Now it seems a shame to me that Budgie seem condemned to be known as just a footnote in Metallica’s history, having supplied the originals … Continue reading »

  • A newer one today, Black Spiders Sons of the North, from 2011.  A new band hailing from Sheffield, a city which knows a thing or two about hard rockers with an ear for a tune.  I’d heard a couple of tracks on cover discs and marked them out as sones to watch, but it’s when … Continue reading »

  • Now here’s one I’ve not played in a long, long time Guns n’ Roses Lies! The Sex, The Drugs, The Violence, The Shocking Truth (or Lies as it will henceforth be known in order to save me from RSI).  It’s sunny and hot and the kids aren’t around to hear the swearing so on a … Continue reading »

    My view is that there aren’t as many lost gems and hidden greats in hard rock / heavy metal than there are in most other genres.  Well, since you asked, I’ll tell you – mostly it takes a decent amount of money, no matter how talented you are, to make a great sounding LP, secondly … Continue reading »

  • As part of my ongoing quest to resurrect the reputation of Rochester’s finest, I thought you may be marginally interested from these titbits from the scrapbooks I kept at the time.  The 1537 archives will one day be left to the nation. And from when I saw them. 214 Down (still) Filed under: Hard Rock, … Continue reading »

  • Warning: Contains nudity / semi-nudity So here I am again back by popular demand to round off the rest of my Uncle Sam collection, namely their debut LP Heaven or Hollywood*. Recorded with the band’s first singer, Scott Cessna, this LP got a good rep in the press as a punky-sleazy take on early Alice … Continue reading »

    Here’s one I’ve not owned for very long but I wanted to get hold of for years. The Godz from 1978 had a rep as a classic lost LP.  I eventually hunted an good quality original copy down on eBay in October last year, got a glass of something nice, checked out the  groovy golden … Continue reading »

    When Guns n’ Roses surprised everyone by breaking big it really seemed to throw the record companies at the time, there they all were with their teased-and-preened glam acts and/or their polished AOR poodles cowering in a radically changed landscape as a bunch of genuinely dangerous, unruly dudes surveyed the wastes.  Record companies being record companies wasted … Continue reading »

  • Something good happened to me yesterday. Something Black Spiders related. I know all the metal, wild cough mixture binges and non-stop sticking it to the man can sap your brain cells in their thousands, so let me remind you all of when I wrote about Black Spiders Sons of The North at the back-end of June.  … Continue reading »

  • Sometimes I need complex ideas, clever juxtapositions of styles and witty wordplay, stuff to really listen to very carefully. Sometimes I just need to rock out to something kick ass with a great guitar sound. Rival Sons Pressure & Time from 2011 is really scratching that last itch for me at the moment.  I put this … Continue reading »

  • I can’t speak French, baby, but No more l’amour I had wanted to hear some Raging Slab for years but not managed it before I finally got hold of a second-hand copy of Raging Slab in 2011.  They always looked damn cool and how could you resist any band who called an earlier LP Assmaster?

    Since ‘fessing up to being complicit in the neglect and mistreatment of a, once mighty but now, endangered species, namely the 7″ single I’ve tidied them all up a bit, although I haven’t neurotically alphabetized them yet – which is how I express my love for anything, just ask our pets!  Tonight after coming home from a parents … Continue reading »

  • I don’t really remember buying Concrete Jungle Wear and Tear.  I bought it from the much-lamented Backstreets Records in Carmarthen on the day before my 17th birthday, I suspect it was sold to me as the latest flash US import, but hey I was a horny 16 year-old, let’s face it the chick in stockings … Continue reading »

  • Key:  Bad Stuff is this: Good Person is this: No idea what on earth caused this to my 1983 shaped picture disc of AC/DC Guns For Hire (bought in 1990 for £15).  It’s never been exposed to water, or any other moisture.  It’s always been kept upright in a plastic sleeve. It’s never happened to … Continue reading »

  • Watch this before deciding whether to read any further: If not, that’s fine – no problem. 272 Down – you know the drill, see you next time. Still here? cool. I bought Wrathchild Nukklear Rokket 12″ in a sale in my beloved Backstreets Records in Carmarthen in January 1990.  I played it twice, decided that the production sucked and that … Continue reading »

  • A good thing happened to me this week which has been several weeks in the making. Back in July, as you 1537 obsessives will doubtless remember, I posted about one of my favourite hard rock bands from the early 90′s, Rochester’s finest, Uncle Sam.  I always thought they were a great band who just didn’t get … Continue reading »

  • Now I own quite a few LPs which are real ‘one-trackers’, you know where one song is simply so far ahead of anything else on offer that everything else pales by comparison to the point where you can only vaguely remember it at all.  I can’t think of a stronger example then Boston. Having been persuaded … Continue reading »

  • Here’s one I don’t play every day, Britny Fox, from way back in 1988.  They really don’t make ‘em like this anymore* and that’s not necessarily a bad thing at all.  I picked this LP up in 1990, the same day I bought THE WORST LP IN MY WHOLE COLLECTION** and four days before I … Continue reading »
