I know it’s only April but arguable the best album of the year is going to be ‘Sensory Overdrive’ by Michael Monroe. The band, that also features Ginger, Karl Rockfist, Sami Yaffa and Steve Conte, are just wrapping up a two week stint in the UK to promote said album and I managed to get to three of their gigs the first half of the tour. No two Michael Monroe gigs are ever the same; the only constant will be 110% Rock ‘n’ Roll. Which this recording bears out.

Bernie Tormé in his Desperado guise starts things rolling this week with another Dee, Dee Dee King aka Dee Dee Ramone following suit. I got a few new releases to play you this week in the form of Hardcore Superstar’s ‘Split Your Lip’, the “DEMONS” ‘Scarcity’, the Imperial State Electric/Bloodlights split 7” and the new Motӧrhead album ‘The World Is Yours’. A track from each is played and in the case of Motӧrhead; two. On the live front I play a new Michael Monroe song recorded on the last day of their Motӧrhead support slot in Brighton and indeed Motӧrhead with Michael Monroe recorded the day before in Brixton.

I’ve a Spinetastic show for you this week. Once again it’s all live with all three bands on the Spinefarm label. First up are JettBlack who seem to be the one of the premier support acts at the moment. The filling in this week’s sandwich are Reckless Love with (The) Michael Monroe (Band) finishing things off. Reckless Love and JettBlack were recorded at the Garage on the 25th September with (The) Michael Monroe (Band) set taken from their just released CD ‘Another Night In The Sun’ which was recorded at Tavastia, Finland on the 6th July.
