Flashlite #312

January 29th, 2015

This show starts of with Jonly Bonly – a new band out of Austin, lead by Jason Smith who used to be a lead guitarist in OBN IIIs. Dreamsalon from Seattle are back in our show. Exactly one year ago we introduced them with their previous album, and now the new one Soft Stab is [...]

Flashlite #311

January 22nd, 2015

Some interesting stuff today. Erotic Biljan and his Heretics from Zagreb have a new single called Discgrace and we check it out. Also, Plastic Pals out of Sweden have a new single Riding With Elvis commemorating 80th birthday of Elvis Presley, which happened on January 8th. Also, out of Sweden, we have a new garage [...]

Flashlite #310

January 15th, 2015

Sonny Vincent is back with no less than two new records. One is with his new band called Spite – it features also Glen Matlock, Steve Mackay and Rat Scabies – all star line up, and that’s how it sounds too. He also has a solo record called Cyanide Consomme. Great work indeed. Eamon McGrath [...]

When Mick Jagger was in his late forties he recorded Primitive Cool and Steel Wheels. Certainly not the highest point of his career. But, it seems that the generation of musicians who are in their late forties these days are growing up a bit slower, putting better and better records as the time goes by. [...]

Matthew Smith is a long time fixture on Detrot rock’n’roll scene. For years, his music is very well informed with all those genres that make rock music so exciting for all of us. His band with a revolving membership, Outrageous Cherry has been proving that for the past 20 years with some 15 odd albums. [...]

Making a good tribute is not an easy thing to do. You can have the best musicians the best songs but rarely do things fall together so nicely. On Map To The Treasure things came together perfectly and I think several things contributed to that. First, you can find jazz, country and rock musicians and [...]

Last year a surprisingly uncharacteristic album came from Lydia Lunch. She and her collaborator, guitarist Cypress Grove recorded a mighty fine, moody, rock’n’roll album called appropriately A Fistful of Desert Blues. Rarely does a record title fit the sound so well. It’s a western desert blues record that can stand next to any Gun Club [...]

First Base (Hozac)

January 8th, 2015

The First Base LP review of any length would probably end up being too long. To state it very simply, First Base is a band from Toronto that writes simple two minute catchy melodies in the best traditions of bubblegum punk. Songs of unacquainted love, cool harmonies and unpretentious production will win your heart and [...]

Today’s show is dedicated mainly to my favorite reissues this year. The two comps I enjoyed the most were Mojo’s Heavy Nuggets III and Numero Group’s Warfaring Strangers Darkscorch Canticles, as a roadmap to the new band on some cool underground hard rock from the seventies. There were some excellent power pop reissues as well. [...]

Nowadays, singles and eps come out in various different forms. The old vinyl and CD, but it also can be a download, a video… So, it’s not easy to navigate through this mess. So, all singles and short albums up to four songs are what I call “short form”. Todays list compiles a list of [...]
