TY SEGALL Nails It With Big Hot Chocolate Drone Live On American TV…

2 February 2018

Centipede musician TY SEGALL just released his umpteenth new album FREEDOM’S GOBLIN. A blast of a record with more massive hooks than ever. Yesterday the hardest working man in showbiz performed live on the Jimmy Kimmel TV show. Here is his towering cover of Hot Chocolate’s song EVERY1’S A WINNER (also on the LP). A mighty drone energized heavily by a king-sized Segall guitar solo…

THE BEACHES – All Grrrl Canadian Punk Rock Squad Doing It For The ‘MONEY’…

Swirling live performances…

6 December 2017

Band: THE BEACHES

Who: “named after the area of Toronto (Canada) where they live, are good girls gone great. Proud teen pioneers of the new wave of fem-rock, their sassy, saw-toothed alt-rock songs recall The Strokes, Elastica, The White Stripes, Metric and The Runaways and writhe, snarl and spit the kind of romantic defiance, youth rebellion and peer solidarity that makes these females such a formidable force for rock”…

Track: MONEY

Where: Sugar Beach Sessions for
102.1 The Edge in Toronto, Canada

When: 13 September 2017

What: this powerful and dashing rock squad sounds and looks like the sonic punk children of Joan Jett and Billie Joe Amstrong. Hefty, vociferous and outspoken. “We do what we want when we’re out” is what they’re about. Another shaking all grrrl kick-ass sensation…

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…

BLACK REBEL MOTORYCLE CLUB – Classic ‘WHATEVER HAPPENED TO MY ROCK N ROLL’ Live In Austin, Texas…

Memorable live performances…

23 November 2017

Last Tuesday one of the most genuine, most honest and most flamboyant rock gangs on
this troubled planet played Belgium again. Yes, BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB came
to play new album ‘Wrong Creatures’ and more in Antwerp. I had my ticket from the day
the concert was announced. But due to an endless, massive traffic jam – a truck lost his dangerous freight on the highway – I didn’t even arrived in Antwerp. From the moment
I realized I couldn’t be in time at all for the show I returned utterly disappointed back home. As I’ve seen B.R.M.C several times before I knew what I missed. Bloody bad luck,
for me and many other fans who experienced the same shit. To comfort us all here’s
their first ever big knockout from 2001 performed live in Austin, Texas in 2013…

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.

“Don’t let the fuckers get you down…

THE BLACK ANGELS – Intimate Performance Of ‘I’D KILL FOR HER’ – Top Track From Their Best Longplayer So Far…

Texan psychedelic collective THE BLACK ANGELS released this year – to my ears – their best album so far. DEATH SONG (named after a song on The Velvet Underground’s 1967 debut LP). is a gloomy work dealing with today’s bleak times wrapped in an ardent and invigorating soundtrack. Here’s one of the highlights performed intimately in the tiny
Paste Studios in New York City earlier this year. Pretty cool…
