UK Guitar Legend Chris Spedding Announces Brand New Album Featuring A Slew Of Special Guests Including Johnny Marr & Bryan Ferry!


Also includes Robert Gordon, “The God Of Hellfire” Arthur Brown, Glen Matlock, Deadwood actor Ian McShane and more!

Los Angeles, CA - Step right this way, folks, for the experience of a lifetime as guitar hero Chris Spedding showcases his newest, coolest action-packed, thrill ride - Joyland! Packed with more exhilarating highs and heart pounding surprises than any rollercoaster on the planet, Joyland is Spedding’s latest studio effort, his first since 2011 and his 13th original studio album overall in a career that now spans over 4 decades. Featuring 11 brand new compositions, a slew of pure rock riffs and tons of toe-tapping grooves, Joyland will be open to the public starting early 2015 courtesy of Cleopatra Records.

Adding to the excitement, Spedding has called on a number of friends and associates to help bring his newest creation to life. The album kicks off with a haunting spoken word piece voiced by the unmistakable tones of famed actor Ian McShane (HBO’s Deadwood), followed by a stunning, spine-tingling vocal performance by the God Of Hellfire himself, the one and only Arthur Brown. Former Sex Pistol Glen Matlock joins Spedding on the first of two stellar instrumental cuts, the other featuring none other than Smiths’ guitar god Johnny Marr - talk about a clash of titans! More astounding vocal performances arrive from Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry and rockabilly crooner Robert Gordon, both of whom make a perfect foil for Spedding’s vibrant guitar playing. Rounding out this stellar list of guests are a couple of Spedding’s old bandmates from the 1972 group Sharks, Andy Fraser and Steve Parsons, as well as newcomer Lane and another Roxy Music alum Andy Mackey. With this all-star gang of superb musicians on board, better hang on to your hats, kids, this is bound to be one wild ride!

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

British Post-Punk Veterans 1919 Return With A Brand New Masterpiece Of Darkly Melodic Goth Rock, FUTURECIDE!

Los Angeles, CA - Like the mythic phoenix rising from the ashes, British post-punk band 1919 have gone through Hell and back over the course of their harrowing career, but they keep returning stronger than ever! Founded in 1980, the band released its debut album Machine in 1983 and one EP a year later before calling it quits. However, the band reformed in 2014 to great acclaim, performing numerous tours and at festivals across Europe. Then, tragedy struck as the band’s founding guitarist Mark Tighe was diagnosed with cancer in 2016 and succumbed to the disease in January 2017. Tighe insisted that the band should carry on without him, which they have done in finest form with their newest effort Futurecide. The album, which will be officially released on April 12 via Cleopatra Records, features brand new compositions and includes special guest performances by Tighe as well as former member Steve Madden, who also passed away this year. The first single, “Anxiety,” was released at the en…

Concert Review: Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY

Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY December 13, 2018 http://ghost-official.com


With winter upon us in the great Northeast, it was just another night. We never have a reason to stay in because of the weather, we just go. It so happened that it was a nice evening for a drive to a Ghost concert.We secured our tickets months ago and have been anticipating this night for months on end.
Last July I attended a “bucket list” concert, the great Iron Maiden was coming to Mansfield, MA. Opening for them was Ghost. This was a turn of a friendly card for the band, a great way to get worldwide exposure otherwise not afforded by a lesser band. They were already on the rise and the lead singer Papa Emeritus had a helluva a band (no pun intended there). At that time my prediction was that when the new year began Ghost would be headlining their own shows. So, then it happened, here we are tonight watching this incredible metal band headlining their own show, with no opener may I add.
For those of you unf…
