Canadian Noiseniks METZ Get ‘ LOST IN THE BLANK CITY’ With A Big Bang…

Smashing live performances…

Who: METZ (Toronto)
Track: LOST IN THE BLANK CITY
Where: Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Studios.
When: September 2017
What: this three-headed high-voltage Ontario turbo creates a tranche of noise when playing live. Metallic exorcism it is. Robustious riffage, walloping drums/bass demonic wailing and an overall sonic experience of Dante’s Inferno. Something like this big bang…

LCD SOUNDSYSTEM – Magnetizing ‘CALL THE POLICE’ Performance On British TV…

Towering live performances…

Band: LCD SOUNDSYSTEM – James Murphy‘s band
Track: CALL THE POLICE
Where: BBC’s ‘Later With… Jools Holland‘ live show
When: 26 September 2017
Score: Murphy‘s comeback after 5 years with his ‘American Dream‘ album isn’t a cash-in affair, absolutely not. His 4th longplayer is his best ever! And ‘Call The Police‘ is one of my favourite 5-stars tracks. A magnetizing corker that will twist your head 360. Bingo…

SAVAGES – Flabbergast ‘FUCKERS’ Performance At Glastonbury 2016…

Last year was SAVAGES year. The forthright all-female 4-piece powerhouse led by charismatic frontwoman Jehnny Beth scored big time with their second LP ‘Adore Life‘.
But today I wanna hear/see/experience that amazingly powerful live rendition of mind-boggling steamroller FUCKERS (a live version was released on a 12″ along with a cover
of Suicide’s ‘Dream Baby Dream’ back in 2014 – both tracks were recorded live during the band’s November 6th, 2013 performance at London’s Forum.) at Glastonbury Festival 2016. Menacing, staggering and breathtaking. Here’s the awesome 10-minute volcano.

NOEL GALLAGHER And His HIGH FLYING BIRDS Rock Like Bloody Hell On BBC TV…

Smashing live performances…

Today we have not one, but two stunning life tracks as NOEL GALLAGHER and his HIGH FLYING BIRDS nailed it big time on BBC TWO’s ‘Later… with Jools Holland‘ show a couple
of days ago with storming performances of two songs from forthcoming, new album WHO BUILT THE MOON?. First came that striking killer single HOLY MOUNTAIN we all know by heart by now and then The Chief revealed a new one titled SHE TAUGHT ME HOW TO FLY. Watch/hear both smoking corkers here…

HOLY MOUNTAIN

SHE TAUGHT ME TO FLY

It’s quite clear Noel Gallagher is on his way to deliver a masterpiece LP. Another new,
rad track FORT KNOX was launched last week with a lyric clip. A psychedelic knockout…

THE MOONLANDINGZ – On A Sweet Steamy Saturn Of Their Own When They Hit Planet Earth…

Smashing live performances…

One of the most intriguing new bands in ages. One that makes you ecstatic, one that energizes your lazy limbs, one that messes up your mind, one that you’ll remember
when they’re gone. And yes, unfortunately, the following message on their FB-page announces the farewell of THE MOONLANDINGZ‘s first visit on earth, let by outlaw
Johnny Rocket. Let’s bloody hope they return again some day. We need weirdos like
them, otherwise, we’re condemned to eternal boredom… “Only one month to go before
we hit the road for one more lap of honour before we take a break from playing live for
a while and start thinking about writing another ‘groundbreaking’ pop record and to allow
your favourite glamorous psychedelic pop hero, Johnny Rocket, to revert back to Lias Saoudi and the next exciting phase of the Fat White Family adventure.”

Let’s celebrate this outlandish combo once
more before they return to their lunar crater.
Here’s SWEET SATURN MINE

Washington D.C. ‘PRIESTS’ With Biting ‘PINK WHITE HOUSE’ Performance…

Smashing live performances…

Here are the awesome PRIESTS from Washington D.C. led by charismatic frontwoman Katie Alice Greer. She has the glamorous touch of a teenage Debbie Harry and rages
like a furious Courtney Love used to do 24/7. She’s backed by a tremendous drums/bass turbo and riff machine GL Jaguar . The final result cuts like a Swiss knife. Sharp & caustic. Check here their zealous live rendition of PINK WHITE HOUSE from their debut album ‘Nothing Feels Natural’ as performed KEXP Radio in Seattle
