Hellsingland Underground release music video for “The Blessing & The Curse”

Having become fed up of themselves, Hellsingland Underground began looking in new directions for inspiration. The result: They bought an old tire workshop. They call the place Hellsingland Rubberland, where they now make life sour for the few customers they have. Welcome to the workshop from hell...

Desmond Child – Live

There’s hardly anything that hasn’t already been said about Desmond Child, the “golden child” of a songwriter, responsible for countless hit tunes for the likes of Kiss, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Cher, Bon Jovi, Ricky Martin and many others… many of which topped the charts the world over.

Status Quo - Backbone

Believe it or believe it not, “Backbone” is Status Quo’s thirty-third album. If one dismisses the acoustic albums they did and the soundtrack – it’s also the first real album in a while and most importantly the first one without Rick Parfitt, who sadly died in 2016.
 

Sebastian Straw to release debut solo album “Welcome Yesterday” on October 18th 2019

Straddling the fine line between indie rock and Britpop, Sebastian Straw presents his new single “My Friend”, a catchy song that foreshadows the album “Welcome Yesterday”, to be released in mid-October via Seahorse Recordings.

His lyrics are both emotional and serious. “My Friend” tells the story of a  dear and trusted comrade - both humble and  stubborn, vying to face his  difficulties alone, silently declining any help from his friends.

The Waterboys - Where the Action Is

I was reading a few reviews about this album, and one in particular stuck out. One from a newspaper, you know the 4-5 line ones, where you wonder if the reviewer even bothered listening to the album or just “googled” some and came up with some quote… the album was dismissed as sounding dated… in that case the band and it’s sizable audience must have been happily living out of the hip bubble for ages, but isn’t that what timelessness is?
