Five firecrackers from the past week to fuel your weekend…
1. ‘Taliban USA’ by JELLO BIAFRA AND GUANTANAMO SCHOOL OF MEDICINE
A red-hot-blooded metal crackerjack with Biafra doing what he does best, spitting and sneering to ventilate his deep-rooted anger versus the hypocrite USA government.
2. ‘Playing Nero’ – MARK LANEGAN song remixed by IYEARA
Mark Lanegan joined forces with British electro trio IYEARA to remix his
2019 longplayer Somebody’s Knocking. The album will be out on 21 August.
Here’s haunting taster ‘Playing Nero’.
3. ‘Shot A Satellite’ by ERASURE
Vince Clarke (ex-Depeche Mode and Yazoo) and singer Andy Bell dropped a second electro disco banger from their upcoming 18th album called The Neon, out next month.
4. ‘Criss Cross’ by THE ROLLING STONES
Previously unreleased track from the upcoming deluxe edition of 1973 longplayer
Goat Heads Soup. A vintage riff crazy Stones knockout. Never too old to rock’ n’ roll.
Get yer ya-ya‘s here…
5. ‘Valentine’ by TRAVIS
An electrical groove that gets slowly but surely under your skin. Both captivating and moody. Travis still have catching power-pop excitement to offer. LP 10 SONGS out soon.
Band: Mark Lanegan Band
Album: Somebody’s Knocking
Released: 18 October 2019
Sound: Mark Lanegan looked at the world and saw, like (almost) all of us that we experience dangerous and explosive times. As an artist Lanegan translated his disbelief, anger and silent hope into a bewitching collection of impressive songs that hits bullseye
on many levels. Remarkable artist with another remarkable achievement.

Fresh sonic impulses for your ears…
‘Nocturne’ by MARK LANEGAN BAND
Eternal troubadour MARK LANEGAN and his band will release new album GARGOYLE
on 28th April via Heavenly Recordings. All details here. The 10-track LP features guest appearances from long-time collaborators Josh Homme, Greg Dulli and Duke Garwood.
In a press message Lanegan says about the new record: “I definitely feel like I’m a better songwriting than I was 15 years ago. I don’t know if I’m just kidding myself or what, but it’s definitely easier now to make something that is satisfying to me. Maybe I’m just easier on myself these days, but it’s definitely not as painful a process, and therefore I feel I’m better at it now. But part of the way that I stay interested in making music is by collaborating with other people. When I see things through somebody else’s perspective it’s more exciting than if I’m left to my own devices.”
Here’s first stunning single NOCTURNE …
