It’s all about the quality and, boy, does Double D have a few choice picks for you this month?  With the pressing plants being overrun with Record Store Day just over the horizon, so it seems fair that March is a few picks lite – so, we’ve expanded the remit and not only got some videos but also extended plays for you pop pickers.  Read on, check ‘em out and fill yer boots: [read on]

Review: Medicine Bird Takes Flight

March 17, 2018 // 0 Comments

UP THE DOSE: The debut EP from Medicine Bird is a promising teaser for fans of the Rolling Stones, Black Crowes, the JuJu Hounds and other like-minded, blues-based rockers. By Metal Dave Fans of the countrified Rolling Stones, Georgia Satellites and other blues-rock dealers will find their share to crow about on the debut EP from Medicine Bird. A swampy stew of blues harp, Hammond B3, twangy guitars and backwoods vocals, the five-song serving is the brainchild of songwriting duo Jeremy White and Tobin Dale. “Just Come As You Are,” gets things started with a three-shot swagger, but overall the EP settles into a morning-after, [read on]

Kim Wilde – ‘Here Come The Aliens’ (Wildeflower Records) Outside of her sporadic collaborations with those lovely Lawnmower Deth chappies, Kim Wilde might not be a name you’d expect to see on the hallowed pages of Über Rock – but, here she is, and she’s just released what our Prince Of Parp is unashamedly proclaiming as “a pop rock classic” right here and right now in 2018!
