MICK JAGGER & DAVE GROHL Get Satisfaction With Covid-19 Inspired Corker ‘EAZY SLEAZY’

14 April 2021

Two living mega rock legends, from different generations,
sir MICK JAGGER and DAVE GROHL teamed up to rock
like fired-up teenagers who’re looking for satisfaction

Jagger about their Covid-19 inspired corker EAZY SLEAZY. “I’m sure
an atmosphere of isolation or semi-isolation has changed what’s being
created in this period. I’m sure it subtly affected a lot of people’s subject
material and the way they write music.”

Start them up, folks…

The most famous blues-rock tandem, for the past few years, before it was the

titled DELTA KREAM, out next month, 14 May.

JOHN & YOKO Giving Peace A Change In Previously Unseen Bed Footage

14 April 2021

Anti-war song GIVE PEACE A CHANGE was written by JOHN LENNON
(but credited to Lennon–McCartney) and recorded with his PLASTIC ONO
BAND
, including his wife Yoko Ono and a bunch of famous friends in
Montreal, Canada back in 1969.

Previously unseen footage has now come to the surface with John & Yoko
in the Sheraton Oceanus Hotel in the Bahamas a week before Montreal, while
on their bed-in tour, with Lennon playing a rough, at times crazy, version of
Give Peace A Chance.

Here we go…

A Motherfucker Of A Slam Dunk – ROYAL BLOOD Share Hammer ‘BOILERMAKER’

Daily electricity to load your batteries…

13 April 2021

Brighton’s mean rock machine ROYAL BLOOD unleash their new, third, album
TYPHOONS on 30 April. They made us ears go gaga with 3 hammer blows earlier
on, and here’s number four. Holy Moly! What a motherfucker of a slam dunk.

They already played BOILERMAKER at a couple of festivals back in 2019, making
their fans beg to record and release the haymaker. And the pair listened and invited Queens Of The Stone Age mastermind Josh Homme to produce the insane-riff bastinado (and, yes, he left his characteristic stoner rock mark). And the video clip is awesome too.

You know what to do.

THE POLYPHONIC SPREE Cover INXS – And More Sprees To Come Soon

13 April 2021

Texan 20+ choir-rock sensation THE POLYPHONIC SPREE produced splendid,
sonic waves with 4 excellent albums between 2002 and 2013 but also shook
half of the globe with their spectacular gospel-like-church-gatherings (I know,
I saw them once in Belgium, filling a whole stage and making the crowd go
totally ecstatic).

After being quiet for a while they returned last October with an EP
of covers and now they announced not one but two new albums.

A full album of covers called AFFLATUS arrives this Friday.
And the other one, with new original material, arrives later
in the year.

Tracklist below.

The band says: “We’re back! Our new album ‘Afflatus’ is out this Friday, with
ten covers songs that mean a lot to us. It’s been a crazy year and we’re so happy
to be back in the studio working on a new original album, which will be ready
later this year. We can’t wait for you to hear what we’ve been working on.
Cheers y’all!”

To get us in the mood for Afflatus we can jump up and down to their
steamy cover of 1982 track Don’t Change by Australian legends INXS.
