As a tribute to the sad and tragic passing of one of the nicest men in the music business, Michael Sundén, I play a track by The Backyard Babies, a band he managed for a great number of years.
“I am responsible”.
Other music this week comes from Captain Sensible, Brian James, Tank. Have you spotted the Damned connection yet? Then I talk about the Crunch, band that comprises of Dave Tregunna, Sulo, Mick Geggus and Terry Chimes. Then it’s onto Michael Monroe with the first track taken from his new album and 1st to feature Dregen. Reckless Love go all Voodoo on us with “Night On Fire”. The Nomads, at the beginning of the month released a new ep. Obviously I play something from it. From Sweden to Germany it’s Radio Dead Ones with the Rich Jones produced “Second To None”. The Roles Models as do Vice Squad have charity singles out which I play and you should purchase. Pink Cigar, who don’t have charity single but if you buy their brand new single, which I play, will probably love you forever. Ebbott Lundberg has a track from his “Ebbott Sings” aired. With a track from the new Black Sabbath album rounding this week’s show off.

“To Prog or not to Prog? That is the question.”
This week I start things going with, What is Prog? I play 3 bands that could be construed as Prog, but are they? You tell me. First up is Ghost (or Ghost B.C. if you’re living in the United States) who hail from Sweden. Next up it’s Kadavar from German and then it’s Queensryche V Queensryche. Yes that’s right, we have a track each from the Tate version and the Wilton, Rockenfield and Jackson line-up. Let Battle Commence! Away from Prog and into a 1970’s feel it’s Giuda from Spain who are playing in London on the 24th May. Be there or be at the o2 watching Rush. Moving up a decade to the 80s its Bullet with their Sweden interpretation of NWoBHM. Black Star Riders who have morphed from Thin Lizzy into a new band with new songs have a said new song aired. Very good it is as well. Bouncing over to Scandinavia we have “Demons” singing in their native tongue, The Royal Cream with their new single, it’s in English, Los Bastardos Finlandeses and a track off their new album “Day Of The Dead and Trouble Circus with a track off last years “Ain’t Shit” CD. Finishing things off it’s Straight To Video with a song off their 5 track ep that features the talents of Rob Lane, Richie Hudson, Keef Identity and Johnny Monaco amongst others.

Easter Sunday saw Rachel Stamp play the “Camden Rocks! 2013” launch party gig at The Barfly. For those of you who are unaware Rachel Stamp comprise of David Ryder-Prangley, Will Crewsdon, Shaheena Dax and Robin Guy. Rachel Stamp were formed in 1994 when David Ryder Prangley met Will Crewdson in London after moving from Wales. The band signed to WEA Records, but were dropped without releasing the album “Fight the Force of Evil”. Their official debut album “Hymns For Strange Children” went to the top of the NME‘s Independent Chart. The band were inactive for a few years despite never officially splitting up, and reformed in 2009, initially to support their best of compilation album, “Now I’m Nailed To Your Bedroom Wall, I’ve Only Got Myself To Blame”. In 2010, Will Crewdson and David Ryder-Prangley played alongside Adam Ant for performances around London. Whilst Robin Guy plays with Bernie Tormé as well as being a “go to” session drummer. Shaheena Dax consigns herself to TV roles.

It’s an all live show this week courtesy of Love/hate featuring Jizzy Pearl, Robbie Crane (RATT, Lynch Mob) Keri Kelli (Alice Cooper, Slash’s Snakepit) and Matt Starr (Ace Frehley) who are currently on tour in the UK. This is the first date recorded at The Underworld in Camden on the 25th March which was rather cold Monday evening. Good job the band warmed things up by several degrees.

A hard episode that gets easier as the show progresses. On the 6th and 10th March I went up to Koko (The Camden Palace) to see former Dr. Feelgood guitarist Wilko Johnson bade a fond farewell to his London fans. The first date was filmed for, I guess, a future DVD/Documentary release. So this week’s show concentrates on the Sunday gig. Support on both dates came from the very excellent and new to me Eight Rounds Rapid.
