All right fellow Squirrels. It’s Wednesday, the middle of the week, it’s a peak not a trough. And to help you down the other side speeding towards the weekend we have The Sewergrooves and The Nomads recorded at The Kaffe 44 in Stockholm on the 20th April. I think it is probably safe to say that without The Nomads there wouldn’t have been the surge of Scandinavian Garage Rock in the 90’s and 00’s. No Nomads = No Hellacopters or Hives. The Sewergrooves were caught up in this ground swell and were bolstered early on by having one Robban Eriksson in their ranks. Robban has long gone (loser) but the band still produce quality albums and are in the throws of recording a 10” follow up to 2011’s “Trouble Station”. Enjoy and as it’s midweek…..It’s about an hour and forty-five minutes long. So settle down and revel in the music that is The Sewergrooves and The Nomads.

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.

Who were recorded at The Water Rats in London on the first date of their recent UK Club tour.

“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.
