Very much a mix bag this week with Mother’s Children kicking things off swiftly followed by The Durango Riot. New to the Paranoid Squirrel and to me, more or less, are The Black Veil Brides who I’ve avoided up to this point because they seemed manufactured Motley Crüe for this decade have a track played and it was all down to their singers vocal influences. A band who hopefully rub people up the wrong way (and you can take that which ever way you like) are Turbonegro whose brand new album “Sexual Harassment” hit the virtual racks this week and obviously I play a track from it. Sticking with Norway; I play a Bloodlights track that snuck under my radar. A band who have never gone under my radar are Rush whose current album “Clockwork Angels” seems to be on 24/7 in the Squirrel household. So it would be rude not to play a track from it. Honest John Plain of The Boys has a track from his and The Landslide Girls album “Honest Alive” aired with The Damned being the last studio band before The Gasoline Queens take to The 100 Club stage. I also talk about taking my Daughter to her 1st Festival. (Capital Radio’s Summertime Ball) Stop laughing at the back and The Punk-By-The-Sea festival that never was. Or did it?
