By Shane Pinnegar I recorded this interview with the legendary German Queen of Metal DORO in early 2011, and a computer crash rendered it lost forever… or so we thought. Thankfully some intense tinkering has resurrected it just about intact, so here, from the archives, is the long lost DORO interview! Throughout the interview Doro […]

Thursday 16 Feb 2012 By Shane Pinnegar I’ll wager that even the longest haired, tattooedest of bikers knows the words to at least a couple of Adam & The Ants songs – Ant Music, Stand & Deliver, Prince Charming, perhaps, or his solo work such as Goody Two Shoes, Puss N’ Boots, Vive Le Rock […]

By Shane Pinnegar 8/10 Wild Turkey are a mean lookin’ trio of Rockabilly hombres hailing from the deep south of… Melbourne! Featuring chief songwriter Johnny Marsden on twangtastic guitar and vocals, Kirk Syrett whacking the drums, and Guy Lawson plucking a righteous double bass, they run the gamut of rockabilly styles on this eclectic album […]

TRICIA FREEMAN – Everyone Can See

Self released, March 2012 By Shane Pinnegar 7.5/10 Tricia Freeman’s love of blues, rock, country and soul – in short, GREAT music – shines through on her latest album, but it’s her amazing voice which is the true star.

THE TREATMENT – Then & Again EP

| 12 September 2012 | Reply

Spinefarm UK, 2012 By Shane Pinnegar 8/10 There’s only three types of cover versions: classics, sound-alikes and shockers. Personally I don’t see the point in releasing a cover that sounds almost exactly like the original (Yes, I’m looking at YOU Poison!), and no-one wants to listen to a shocker more than once… so what constitutes […]

Teepee Records, 2011 By Shane Pinnegar 8.5/10 What kind of madness is this? The best possible kind, if you’re a guitar riff kind of person!

Self Released, March 2012 By Shane Pinnegar 7/10 Andy Scott’s SWEET have weighed in with as good a covers album as anyone could have hoped from a band that many thought would never release another album.

SUSANNAH HOFFS – Someday

2012 By Shane Pinnegar 6.5/10 The former Bangle delivers an album full of bright & breezy folky pop with a jazzy edge, tailor made for video clips of pretty girls in Sixties dresses bicycling and dancing in sun-drenched fields of flowers, or montages in bright & breezy Hollywood rom-coms. It’s not as vacuous as it […]

Pop Punk is an easy genre to get wrong, and a lot […]
