Free At Last – GOODNIGHT, SUNRISE Scores With Post-Lockdown Anthem ‘WON’T BE LONG’

26 May 2021

Band: GOODNIGHT, SUNRISE
Who: Alt-rock-and-roll-super-fun-party band from Toronto, Ontario

New single: WON’T BE LONG
About: “Over a year into a pandemic that has redefined every single aspect of our lives, “Won’t Be Long” has taken on a new meaning and urgency – no more quarantunes about being locked down and lonely, no: this is a song about the light at the end of the tunnel that’s getting closer every day! When you’re fighting for what you believe in with all that you’ve got, it can sometimes feel like it’s pointless, like history will repeat forever and ever. But it’s never a waste of time if it’s fuelled by your heart and soul – and if we’ve learned anything over the last year, it’s that we CAN create change in our lives and the world around us. “

Score: Finally! Finally! It seems like we can breathe freely, enjoy life outside and party
hard at concerts and festivals soon like it’s 2019 all over again. Goodnight Sunrise celebrate the return of the bright light at the end of the tunnel with this feel-good-summer anthem fueled by a high-energetic vitality and an overwhelming vigor culminating in a pump-your-fists-in-the-air chorus with rapturous vocals. Don’t worry be happy vibrations are just around the corner. Finally! Finally!

Happy 79 To The Late King Of New York City… LOU REED

2 March 2021

David Bowie once called Lou Reed the King Of New York. He was that and much
more. A wayward, narcissistic genius in sound and vision. From the experimental
days of The Velvet Underground and mentor Andy Warhol, to his long solo career – spanning five decades – with ups and downs, with several masterly albums, and
multiple collaborations (with The Killers, Anthony Hegarty, Metallica, Gorillaz …).

I saw him live (only) five times. Every show was a special experience. Today he would
have celebrated his 79th birthday. Lewis Allan Reed was born in Brooklyn, New York
on 2 March 1942. He passed away in 2013 due to a liver disease after a transplant.

To celebrate the late legend’s birthday Turn Up The Volume picked three remarkable moments, not the obvious ones (Walk On The Wilde Side, Perfect Day, Satellite Of Love,
I’m Waiting For The Man, Sweet Jane, Heroin etc.
) but impressive live performances of
3 standout songs I cherish as much as his classics. Here we go…

– WAVES OF FEAR – paranoid lyrics – Capitol Theatre, Passaic, NJ, 25 Sept 1984

– STREET HASSLE Live in Spain 22 May 2003…

– NEW SENSATIONS – Live at Farm Aid, Champaign, Illinois 22 Sept 1985

loudmouthed motherrockers THE HELL BEINGS have the cure you’re looking for.

Just smash your poor head to the wall while their new sledgehammer single PRISON
MADE A MAN OF HER
crushes your stereo. A psych-o-tic brain-breaker that switches
from agonizing punk fury to electric-powered blues-rock swagger annex crazed guitar
solo. I know you’ll have a concussion in the end, but no more hangover. There you go.
