Re: What song are you listening to right now?

I know I've posted him before, not much new here. He's still the most brilliant guitarist I have ever witnessed, not just the speed but his picking techniques and melodic phrasing are just amazing. This is just one of his bands, Powers of Ten, and no it has nothing to do with marijuana  ......................... RIP Shawn. If you don't listen to all of it then at least check out Get You Back and West Side Boogie

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

Big thanks to Jdog for this shout during the Christmas holidays. It seems big noises are coming out of France these days. I've already shouted about the incendiary fret-work of Felix Rabin; now along comes an almost primal howl of vocals from one Flo Bauer and his band Circle of Mud.

Check these out:-

It's not Flo's first foray on the scene; you can find him, all tousled haired on a 2014ish French version of The Voice (can't have been more than 16 or so, back then.). Pre-pandemic, he cut an album Flo Bauer's Blues Project; while not as explosive as Circle of Mud, you can see the genesis.

A band I'm certainly going to be watching out for.

Jack J Hutchinson - The Hammer Falls (2021/2)

So, either the last album of 2021 or the first one of 2022, depending on how fast the postman was. Whichever way up, Jack and the band (Lazarus Michaelides on Bass & Felipe Amorium on Drums) deliver one glorious hard rockin’ disc that plunders influences from the best of Classic Rock and NWOBHM. At times, there’s echoes of late 70’s UFO, vying with touches of Uriah Heep and then such as The Ravens Crow brings early Diamond Head to mind, with it’s heavy, almost Sabbath-like riffing. What Doesn’t Kill You is pure, old-school Maiden, Michaelides nailing a Steve Harris type bass run till Jack J’s guitar screams in for the solo much like Smith or Murray. And World On Fire would sit well on any Ozzy album (but don’t tell Sharon….)

“The Blues” then, is still there, though trying to spot it is like looking down the wrong end of a telescope; when you get titles like Straight To Hell, The Hammer Falls, Angel of Death & Gunslinger, you know this isn’t dinner-party background musak, but to be fair, Angel of Death is probably the “softer” number on the album, though it smoulders through the speakers. On the other hand, Jack J has been shaping up for a while as a damn fine writer and performer and there’s plenty of tone and texture on here for the most discerning palette. There’s many a hall-filling name would re-mortgage their soul for an album of this caliber - and it’s only the 1st week of January.

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

Dear America was released last September and I've only heard a few of the songs. It is hard to believe that he is 70 years young. Ron Carter (bass) and Eric Gales are guests on it among others. What a talent, it took way too long to get him recognized after 23 album releases

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

Just great for a laid back Saturday or Sunday morning. Kenny is age 90 now with 84 albums to his credit. The first release was in 1956, the last one in 2016. I can do that math

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

I did listen to a little of it, and I guess bottom line it's just not Rush so I won't link you up. I didn't care for Liar, it sounds like Poe singing with, well, Alex on guitar. I am intrigued to hear the song Western Sunset when the rest is released. As I understand it, this is his tribute to Neil Peart

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

I was not a big Ash fan in the 70s in their prime, but my brothers and sister were. I found this quite by accident and decided to post it because the sound quality is so good. I know we have at least a few Ash fans here

lately I've climbed aboart the waybackmachine and revisited the great music of my past.  This is a real gem I could only find online.
A 22 year old unknown (at the time) along with a recent member of Frank Zappa's band on slide guitar.  Hope someone likes this...

Not many can cover Aerosmith, but Dirty Honey can pull it off.  Forgot to include their '21 release in my top ten last year.

King Buffalo doing the "jam in the band" series, although TBH I think this is a weird 'venue' for them. I think their music comes across much better recorded (or perhaps in person, but a live recording like this ins't as impactful).  I love their album The Burden of Restlessness. Fantastic to run to.
