THE STRYPES Grow Up In Grand Style – Here’s New Score ‘EIGHTY-FOUR’…

TrackDay1

Irish gunslingers THE STRYPES just shared new track EIGHTY-FOUR after releasing new single ‘Scumbag City‘ a few weeks ago. It’s another solid proof that their old school rhythm & blues days are over. It’s about highly proficient rock & roll now. The band grows in grand style with fresh smashing bursts to vouch for it. New album ‘Little Victories’ out July 24. But first this tough score…

MOURNING BIRDS – Whole Lotta Shindy…

shoutout

Band: Mourning Birds

Members: Jimmy Gilder (guitar/Vocals), Sam Mitchell (drums/vocals) and Bill Williams (bass guitar)

Home: Medway, South East England

Track: ‘Leave Me Alone’ – newest single…

How was it for me: this British power trio already produced some badass garage ballbreakers (see Bandcamp link further on) – the new one is another blues rock sledgehammer – ferocious rumble and steamy drones for starters – suddenly tempo and noise go down as if singer Jimy Gilder is wondering how he can convey his message crystal clear – but before you can say ‘Mourning Birds rule’ he’s screaming ‘Leave Me Alooooooone’ at the top of his lungs and the band rushes (they never pass the 3 minute mark) to a frenzied finale – towering stuff!

The video: watch it loud…

STONEROSES SPIKEISLAND-800

Spike Island is an island in the estuary of the River Mersey, in North West England, flanked by the Sankey Canal was the site of a famous outdoor concert by the legendary The Stone Roses on May 27, 1990. With a crowd of 27,000, the show in this once-industrial area of Widnes in Cheshire has become the stuff of Madchester legend, rhapsodised, euologised, recounted ad infinitum. Millions claimed to be there. A certain Liam Gallagher attended the ‘once in a lifetime’ gig and decided right there, right then that he wanted to form a band and be a rock ‘n roll star. Noel, his brother, was there too: “It wasn’t actually a good gig, but the vibes were awesome, everybody on drugs and we all had the feeling of being part of a truly unique event…”

One of the best albums ever…
