Anniversary albums: DIRTY DEEDS DONE DIRT CHEAP
Released: 20 September 1976 – 45 years ago today

Rolling Stone wrote: “The guitars of brothers Angus and Malcolm Young
bark at each other, Phil Rudd swings the beat even as he’s pulverizing his kick
drum, and Scott brings the raunch ‘n’ wail. The subject matter is standard-issue
rock rebellion; Scott pauses only once to briefly contemplate the consequences
of his night stalking in ‘Ride On.'”
Score: 3/5.

Turn Up The Volume: The Australian riff machine did
here what they do best – then and still now – being a
mean riff machine.

Singles: Jailbreak / Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap

Five Firecrackers To Stay On Track… In The Weekend

5 new firecrackers to fuel for the weekend…

‘I’M WAITING FOR THE MAN’ by MATT BERNINGER

The National’s frontman Matt Berninger is part of the impressive cast
of artists covering each a track of the historic 1967 debut LP on an
upcoming tribute album for The Velvet Underground.

Here comes your man…

‘Monster Love’ by THE JACKLIGHTS (Boston, US)

This is my favourite track from this tight trio’s new 5-track EP Drift. It’s a jagged jackhammer that rotates full steam ahead driven by hammering drum beats, ablaze
guitar layers, and poppy vocals on top of it. Need electricity to load your batteries?
Monster Love will satisfy your needs. Damn right!

They just wanna turn you on

‘Highway To Hell’ by TOM MORELLO feat. Bruce Spingsteen and Eddie Vedder

The Rage Against The Machine guitarist announced his new, third solo, album, titled
The Atlas Underground Fire, out in October. One of the tracks is a cover of AC/DC‘s
1979 massive slam dunk Highway To Hell with awesome vocals by Spingsteen and Pearl Jam‘s main man Eddie Vedder.

Hell is this way…

‘The Blues Came In’ by THE BURNER BAND (Leeds, UK)

This Leeds’ rockabilly and roots duo brings the shake-and-twist of the 50s back to 2021. They rattle and roll, they riff and rock with a swirling pace. Get those dusty dance shoes out of the closet and make your move. Big fun guaranteed!

The track is from their debut album Sings and Wonders out 3 September
through Shed Load Records (vinyl) and digitally/CD via Bandcamp

Dance yourself dizzy right here…

‘Be The Only One’ by RISE CARMINE (Canada)

A song “about catharsis. It invokes the feelings of those who are subservient
to an autocrat and their dreams for release from oppression; a Shakespearean
betrayal under cover of darkness.”

Expect a psychedelic groove with a bluesy touch, electrical vibe,
catching progression, and reflective vocals floating all over it. Yes!

Be the one here…

See/hear you next week, music junkies

classic 1979 blockbuster HIGHWAY TO HELL.

Morello: “One of the greatest rock ’n’ roll songs of all time sung
by two of the greatest rock ’n’ roll singers of all time. And then I
drop a shredding guitar solo. Thank you and good night.”

I’m on the way to the promised land
I’m on the highway to hell
Highway to hell

Foo Fighters and AC/DC‘s husky voice Brian Johnson teamed up for charity
project VAX Live: The Concert To Reunite The World as well as other big
names such as Jennifer Lopez, Eddie Vedder, J Balvin, and H.E.R.

It all happened last weekend in a big venue in Los Angeles to an audience
of over 20,000 vaccinated frontline healthcare and essential workers.

The Foos played a 6-song set including a steamed-up cover of AC/DC’s
1980 anthem BACK IN BLACK with Johnson screaming himself dizzy.

For those about to rock, here we go…
