The famous Greek ‘kokoretsi’. Meat made by animal intestines stuffed with liver, lungs, hearts and spices.

Equal to rock n roll. Vegans worst nightmare.

Officially licenced by the Hellacopters, ‘Beamed Into Deep Space’ is a comic book by Francis Rove, issued sometime in 2002. I can’t tell you how like I was with this one. I was surfing ebay for stuff and I came across an auction of this lil’ beauty. Read more…

New vinyl in. Heavy Tiger ‘Saigon Kiss’

04/10/2016 r2d2 Leave a comment

Got this at a local store. Never expecting to find it, as, underground stuff like this never make it at mainstream music store, I was super excited. These ladies over here (Heavy Tiger) come from the north, cold Sweden but they ‘play’ sweet worming rock n roll as the Runaways did years a go. Read more…

Black Trip – Shadowline

08/06/2016 r2d2 Leave a comment

I had a blast with their debut album, ?Going Under?, but this one, their second, ?Shadowline?, is  a fiesta of everything rock n roll. Starting from Thin Lizzy and Rory Gallagher and adding a slight touch of the Hellacopters, their references are expanding to everything that smells seventies. These guys can really compose some really timeless music – as rock n roll has always been. Timeless.

Blacklist Union – Back To Mono

08/06/2016 r2d2 Leave a comment

Ok for my taste. This is it. This is how zleazoid rock n roll should sound like. Dangerous, sexy and shaking. I like all their previous releases (?Till Death Do Us Part, Breaking Bread With The Devil? and ?After The Mourning?) but with ?Back To Mono?, they nailed it – and I think they nailed it to an extend of reaching their own limits. I don’t know if the future will prove me wrong, but I don’t think they’re gonna make another one like this one, if they do I will personally ask for their forgiveness. In other words, ?Back To Mono? is so damn good. It breathes the air of ?Appetite For Destruction? and that?s no no exaggeration, plus I heard a lot of Backcherry and Vain stuff on their music. Recommended.

 

Horrific – Your Worst Nightmare (2009)

08/06/2016 r2d2 Leave a comment

With a cover like this I couldn?t resist checking this album out. I was expecting something horror-ish and total metal or punk. My curiosity totally paid off.

Horrific are one man band. Slasher Dave is behind them and handles everything on this album. This guy, Dave, who is also a member of Acid Witch, is a hell of an artist. He?s a musician, a graphic designer and he makes soundtracks for horror films. ?Your Worst Nightmare?,  will not torment your mind. Basic heavy metal, kind of monotonous in times with death metal vocals. Despite the average song writing and synthesis this album offers a lot of remarkable moments on the guitar parts, offering dozens of cool solos and riffs. Worth checking out!

 

The Carburetors – Laughing In The Face Of Death (2015).

08/06/2016 r2d2 Leave a comment

Leather jackets, black jeans, sunglasses in the middle of the night and high octane rock n? roll – that?s what is all about for the Norwegian sensation that goes under the name The Carburetors. This is their 4th album to date and things remain intact, as their anthemic, punky, rock n? roll with it?s strong hooks and powerful sound still goes on. The collaboration with Geir Bratland and Shargath on ?Die Like Heroes? and ?Lords of Thunder? is a nice treat.
