I’m back on BJ Kramp’s Rock and/or Roll podcast, all about the Scorps of the 70’s and blathering about how great Uli Jon Roth is as long as he’s not singing. Listen to it here or on iTunes or where ever.
Ran across an ad for Kiss’ “Rock and Roll Over” which sent me into the YouTube black hole.
The band Riot is a favorite band and their album “Fire Down Under” is an all top ten album for me. Being a fan since 81-82 I have come across very little information about the band. Which reminds me to check out Martin Popoff’s book “Swords and Tequila: Riot’s First Decade” from a few years back.
After Gillan disbanded John McCoy teamed up with Samson main man Paul Samson to make this euro-rock jem.
Armageddon Paths and Planes and Future Gains
The most ‘rocking’ track on this supergroups sole album.
Warrior Soul Ghetto Nation
The last great album by Kory Clarke’s politically charged group.
The Sound Heartland
Post-punk on the more pop end of the scale.
Arcturus Nightmare Heaven
Black metal goes prog.
Blue Oyster Cult Astronomy
My favorite BöC song.
Robert Fripp Breathless
This could have been off of King Crimson’s Red.
Iron Virgin Rebels Rule
A great ‘Junk Shop Glam’ song.
Océan Attention Contrôle
Another AC/DC worshiping French band.
Gary Numan I Die You Die
Telekon’s best song that’s not on Telekon.
Wire Short Elevated Period
Wire continues to make good music well into the new millennium.
As close to a pop song as a band that revels in dirges.
Heavy Load Saturday Night
An all time favorite Heavy Metal band.
Thin Lizzy Thunder And Lightning
First thunderstorm of the year brought this on.
D.I. Falling Out
Just wanted to hear this one. Always seems these guys are forgotten.
The Dirty Nil No Weaknesses
From my favorite album of last year, 90’s worshiping rock.
