I am back and ready to rock!

Hey there rockers. It has been a couple of years between posts but I feel it is time to start blogging again. A lot of fantastic music has passed under my bridge of recent. I have also read some great rock bios. Top of the list would have to be the Tony Iommi book Iron Man. I really enjoyed his insight into the ever evolving world of Black Sabbath. Sad to hear that the reunion is likely to be delayed due to Tony recently being diagnosed with cancer. Here's hoping for speedy full recovery.
Other books I have recently completed-
Scott Weiland 6/10
Duff mckagan 8/10
Mark Evens (Acdc) 7/10

I have Glenn Hughes book on order with amazon so hope to start reading about the voice of rock soon. One of my favs

Music wise here is what I have been getting into thus far in 2012

Blessed by a broken heart- feel the power 7/10
Bruce springsteen - wrecking ball 7/10
Corrosion of conformity - s/t 2012 8/10
Kory Clarke - opium hotel 2 6.5/10. (spoken word stuff is terrible)
UFO - seven deadly 8/10

Dud album of the year so far ( and name for an album) - Paul McCartney - kisses on the bottom. What a dull and boring album of throwaway jazz style lounge music. Why do once great artists feel the need to tarnish their legacy with such middle of the road nostalgia I will never know ( see also rod stewart and the American songbook
series for further reference) I think it is just an indulgence because it is not like they need the money. On this album Pauls voice is virtually unrecognizable and weak. In all reality though he hasn't
done anything of value or quality for years.

Until next time.....

Musket- On 1999

Great album from an unsung Aussie band. This was their one and only full lengther. Mix of grunge and slight shoegazer sounds but with a very poppy edge. Quality drops off a bit towards the end as the songs are more mellow but I just prefer the grungier stuff.

1/ famous and good looking

2/ cool

3/ amberlin'

4/ better sky

5/ innerverse


7/mr fyde

8/red hair

9/ dry and high

10 painted melody

Mr Brown Gooda 1998

6 Track EP. Features Rusty from Electric Mary on vocals. Great band who I saw live supporting Butch Walker at the Evelyn Hotel many years ago. Good catchy stuff. Reminds me a bit of Enuff Z Nuff.
