“I Couldn’t Think Of A Better Choice” – Zakk Wylde “Axl Rose Shows Will Be ‘Karaoke’’ – Roger Daltrey   The news has shaken up the rock n roll industry. Brian Johnson was advised to stop playing live or “risk total hearing loss”. The band is still continuing their Rock or Bust world tour, which is set to play 12 European dates. The rockers had no fear on what to do though – they asked none other than Axl Rose. Axl started the first show with the Aussie rockers inRead More

The ‘Panacea’ to your musical cravings

Folk-rock singer/songwriter Sahara Beck has returned to us with an explosive, expressive and impressive album, ‘Panacea’. Her previous EP’s shine a different light on Beck’s work, comprising on mostly folk, acoustic music. However ‘PANACEA’ takes a new step into the wide abyss of mixtures – jazz, blues and rock. It’s like sipping a cool cup of mint tea, and realising there are more flavours.. Maybe some lemon, maybe a hint of chilli? Maybe even a dash of licorice? But let’s get one thing straight, it’s tasty. From roaring big band production like ‘CrackRead More

Babaganouj is a Pillar of Light

Babaganouj IS a pillar of light with the new EP, title Pillar of Light. I am going to be frank, I love the power pop of the 1990s and I am someone who loves The Lemonheads and Big Star and I love this. Chockas with pop hooks, rocking guitars and aching voices melded in harmony. Upbeat songs, contemplative lyrics and the stirring of heartaches you had forgotten existed. And sometimes that does happen. It happens when boys and girls all get together and knock about a bit, and you getRead More

This is so pleasantly bland that I think the only reason it was a hit was that it was slightly odd. Not bizarre. Just odd. It’s hook isRead More
