Running With The Boss Sound –  Today is January 26th and for me, one of my favourite and most cherished albums was released into the world way back in 1979.  I still play it regularly as it had a big influence on an impressionable young lad.  From the attractive lady on the cover to the pills never mind four gangly lads with leather trousers and scruffy died hair. It was everything I wanted it to be and I can still remember twisting my mothers arm to let me go home from Woolworths with my very own copy tucked under my arm and when I got home it might as well have been welded to the house stereo because it only left the turntable to get turned over for what must have been weeks or months even.

‘Valley Of The Dolls by Generation X might not be as revered as ‘Never Mind the Bollocks’ or ‘The Clash’ it doesn’t get talked about as much as The first Joy Division album or the first few classic Buzzcocks records but to me it might only be outclassed from the 70’s releases by ‘Damned Damned Damned’, ‘LAMF’ and ‘Machine Gun Etiquette’.  It was the Dogs danglies as far as I’m concerned and still is and much like the previously mentioned favourites it still gets played quite frequently by myself. 

‘January that year was the first glimpse of these four pirates as ‘King Rocker’ is released as a single and one of those seminal moments in time as Idol sneered his way through their performance on TOTP.  Reaching a very respectable number 11 in the UK charts at the time was quite an achievement although their label wasn’t so happy.  It came out with a picture of each band member on specific colour pressings something that bands have copied since to increase sales – me I only ever got the tony James cover but it was on red vinyl (still got it)

The album came out on this very day forty years ago and took a right panning in the written press , with reviewers slateing it as “overblown and artistically hollow” and only managing to reach number 51 in the UK album charts the next single being the albums title track only managing number 23 in the singles charts things weren’t looking good for the band amidst trouble at their live shows the summer saw the third and final single being released off the record and ‘Fridays Angels only managing number 62 which must have been a killer for the band and their management not even hitting the top 40. the band began to fragment with Andrews leaving before the year was out and Laff following suit soon after via a harsh sacking from James and Idol due to the classic musical differences.

I was also gutted to find out many years later about the internal squabbling involved in the making of this album and when the band got Ian Hunter in to produce he wasn’t impressed with LAff and his drumming and got Clive Bunker from Jethro Tull in to play the drums as hunter didn’t feel Laff was up to the job in the studio.  Now had I been in the band and as much as I love Ian Hunter I think I’d have told him to fark off over there and then fark off a little bit further as being in a band was all about a gang you know four lads who shook the world riding in to the valley of the dolls and all that comrade but it seems not every band is like that and Bunker was indeed drafted in.

There was an interview with Andrews in 2013 where he stated “The style changed in as much as we had a famous ‘rock-star’ producer in Ian Hunter, a bigger budget, more time and a wider gap between the two older guys and me and Laff. It was actually heartbreaking for Mark Laff to be told by Ian, Billy and Tony that he was not going to play on this album and for him to choose a replacement drummer. He chose Clive Bunker from Jethro Tull and whilst teaching him the parts with two kits set up it was decided it sounded great with two drummers. If I took too long tuning up for an overdub I could see Tony James through the studio glass calling Chris Spedding! It wasn’t the same camaraderie as the first album”

that’s a real shame because in my eyes VOTD has stood the test of time and in 2019 it deserves to be championed as a bit of a classic and for all the rock star buzzkill that was happening at the time they did manage to write and record some fantastic songs.  I think its more in line with the style and sound of Hanoi Rocks than they get credit for and maybe this record was a little bit ahead of the game and would have gone down much better had it been released maybe five years later who knows?

Hands Off Gretel announce new album ‘I Want The World’ to be released March 29th via Puke Pop Records

 

Watch the band take over a skatepark with the new video for the title track released today!

 

“A riotous tangle of bubblegum riffs and rebel girl swagger” Planet Rock

Formed in 2015 in South Yorkshire when frontwoman Lauren Tate stuck two-fingers up to the repressive school environment that trapped her and dropped out, the 16-year-old self-confessed misfit wasted no time in finding an outlet to channel every bit of the alienation and despair experienced within those concrete walls into something cathartic and creative. And Hands Off Gretel was born.

Inspired by the volatile and liberating melody fueled noise of bands such as Hole, The Distillers, Nirvana and PJ Harvey, Hands Off Gretel quickly set about creating the perfect soundtrack of sugar-coated grunge-punk for Lauren to vent and rail against the issues of body image, mental health, celebrity, childhood and loneliness she felt enraged by, all of which were addressed from a fiercely female, unapologetic, feminist perspective.

Recorded at Monnow Valley studio in Wales, new album ‘I Want The World’ is set for release this coming March 29th via the bands own label Puke Pop Records and features twelve-tracks hugely addictive, and sometimes vindictive, melodic rock that is unafraid to blend the heavy screeching distortion of grunge rock with the catchy hooks of bubblegum pop, whilst keeping true to their original roots in punk rock.

I Want The World is a song about how I’ve always felt since I was young,” explains Lauren. “It’s me pouting like a child and saying ‘no! I want more than what this world is going to give me.’ I channel Veruca Salt from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory when I sing it. I am being obstreperous and impossible like a child, kicking and screaming until I get what I want.”

“It feels like I wrote this album 6 years ago in a school toilet whilst skipping class and hiding from the world,” continues Lauren. “The way I felt so ostracized and alone like I didn’t fit in anywhere. It became my mission to sing for the outcasts, the weird kids, the ones that feel misrepresented in society and left behind like I do. I made it my obligation at 15 to make as much noise as possible as a young woman, to challenge everything.”

 

“‘I Want The World’ is about how I’ve felt since I was a little girl,” she adds. “I’ve always felt shushed and muted. Everyone’s always told me to stop showing off or stop being unrealistic and so I’m constantly thinking of ways to give everyone who doubted I could do this or ridiculed me the middle finger. The album is about feeling rejected and acting out, wanting acceptance from a society you don’t even want to be part of. I’m channelling my childhood throughout it all, always being alone and fighting my own battles. The only track that doesn’t fit this theme is Kiss Me Girl, that’s just my lesbian anthem because I felt the world lacked them and I wanted to piss off homophobes.”

 

Fiercely independent, Hands Off Gretel produce and control every aspect of the sound and image. Their loyal and passionate international fan base has grown organically from years of work, interacting daily with fans on social media, creating artwork, videos and merchandise, building not just a band, but a brand with a very clear identity. Their hugely successful Pledge Music campaign to fund the album hit 100% of their goal in less than 24 hours and currently stands at over 200%, combined with PRS Foundation Emerging Artist Funding, which has helped Hands Off Gretel bring the sounds in their heads to life on their own label.

“With the new album we wanted to incorporate more of a pop production to our sound, capturing the wildness and brashness of the fuzz guitars and heavy drums mixed with a flirtatious pop fruitiness,” describes Lauren. “The songs have a pop arrangement at the core”

“I worked hard at crafting catchy melodies and layering my harmonies throughout the whole album,” she continues. “All the while keeping the grit and angst people love in our live shows. It was the most natural progression for us being able to express ourselves in different ways without losing what we have at our core.”

Over the past 3 years, the band have played over100 UK headline dates, toured Germany and played major festivals, including, Rebellion Festival, The Great British Alternative Festival, Isle of Wight, Amplified Festivals Download and Camden Rocks festival.  They have built themselves a solid reputation for their live shows, which are as visually compelling as they are musically, with Tate like an ever-evolving chameleon, you’re never quite sure what you are going to get.

With tastemakers ‘This Feeling’ picking the band up for their “Big in 2019’ predictions and support from Pirate Studios, the industry is starting to take notice of a band that are making a lot of noise under their own steam. As Northern Exposure put it “Hands Off Gretel are a time bomb waiting to go off”

Keep checking back at RPM as next week we’ve got a long interview going online with Lauren Tate

When is an EP not really an EP? when its the work of some twisted fucked up punk rockers called System Reset that’s when. Its got ten songs for a kick off that’s a fuckin’ album in anyone’s language now if those ten only last the length of time it takes you to upload the songs from Bandcamp to Itunes then ok call it a single call it an EP call it a short to the point kick in the bollocks for all I care the only thing that matters is that it is now in my headphones and when I play it I’ve got a grin as wide as the Severn estuary.

Often fast, always melodic, most certainly punk rock System Reset have stumbled onto something here and I like it – I like it a lot. Calling on a wide range of influences; from 90s skate punk through to crusty anarcho dog on a string punk rock the songs are at times furious but these boys are more than happy to sling in a melody if the song needs it. even some slower passages.

Vocalist Stan’s lyrics touch on emotional personal subjects, views on modern society and politics and sometimes utter nonsense – and why not have some diversity and not be afraid to go places with the music if need be rather than just style it out. Recorded live in the studio by VJ Knievel he of the six strings in Deathtraps, Like I say the EP is available digitally immediately through the band’s Bandcamp page with a physical release on CD to follow in mid-February.  I’d love to say here’s a video they recorded on location but social services wouldn’t allow it.

Titter ye not when you hear ‘Growler’ I will stand corrected but this has the handiwork of Sutton from Trigger McPoopschute all over it but this album sorry EP is so much more than that tongue in cheek number The opener ‘Epidemic’ is excellent mid-paced punk rock something you would get right into had it been an early Husker du number.

They follow it up with a great piece of social commentary with ‘Feminazi’ they up the ante on ‘May Already’ I’d just like to believe that one day Theresa will get to hear this, she fuckin’ needs to. Before the album closes I end up gobbin’ tea; sorry that should be strong west country scrumpy or Barley wine over my computer screen thanks to Sutton and his outro on the hardcore blast that is ‘Invade’ it took me longer to type that than the song by the way. which only leaves ‘PTSD’ to close off what is an excellent piece of work.  I hope to catch em live at some point and I hope this is indeed the start of something and not just a one-off – great work chaps great work!

UK headline tour continues into Spring, including dates with Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and new video here


Debut album “You Say I’m Too Much, I Say You’re Not Enough”: Here

Photo credit: Imogen Forte 

Three months after the release of their critically acclaimed debut album “You Say I’m Too Much, I Say You’re Not Enough”, Estrons show no signs of slowing down, returning today to share a video for their brand new single “Strangers”. Filmed at The Globe in Cardiff, the site of a big sold-out homecoming show for the band at the end of 2018, lead singer Tali Källström says;

“Strangers is about self-acceptance and finding the strength to grow and be on your own. The song takes us on a journey of self-sabotage, redemption, failure and success and how all of these experiences meld together to make us who we are. This video represents the different facets, the flaws, the strengths and the disparities we feel about ourselves and others during our day to day lives. It was important for us that we kept the video as a genuine reflection of who we are and the real-life things that we do, breaking the fourth wall, allowing the audience to empathise with the genuine emotion and meaning of the song. We hope you like it.”

Estrons have brought their inimitable style of ferocious alt-rock to sold-out venues up and down the country, as well as appearing live on-air with Annie Mac and Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1, and Julie Adenuga on Beats 1. Racking up millions of streams for the album, while taking on a successful run of festival appearances in the UK & EU, Estrons received invitations to join Garbage and Pussy Riot on the road, and dates with Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes are up next. The band have been steadily collecting a swathe of new cult fans of all types with a live performance to justify their unique sound.

With many more UK live dates in the diary for 2019, a number of which are already sold-out, the upcoming tour also includes their biggest headline show to date at Scala, London, on Feb 7th.

Eight tracks in around twenty minutes may get you thinking that this spawn of founder Zeke drummer Donny Paycheck is as fast and furious as his previous band. You’d be so wrong……

 

Donny has teamed up with fellow barber (I shit you not), Jason Cutthroat and producer legend Jack Endino to create a swamp rock masterpiece. This thing is dirtier than a teenagers mind, think Jesus and Mary Chain, think Cramps, think DEVIL’S MUSIC !!!!!

 

Kicking off in real downbeat style, “Kill 4 U” has a great “Dying to kill, killing to die for you” hook. If the devil stole the beat from the lord, then the Cutthroat brothers grabbed it, chucked in the boot of their car and dragged it into a clearing in the woods where they did unspeakable things to it.

 

“Skeleton Rides” follows, suite, another cool tune in the same vein as the opener but it’s the third track “Violent Crime” that really kicks it off for me.

 

“Violent Crime” sits somewhere between The Marychain’s “April Skies” and “Some Candy Talking”, it’s simply the dogs bollocks! Striiped down, sleazy, moody, dirty and delicious. You need this song in your life.

 

We’re off and running now. “Potions and Powders” takes the pace up a notch, complete with hand claps and its “Every hour, on the hour” hook line. People will be nicking ides from this bad boy, mark my words and there’s a video for it too. The Cutthroat Brothers just spoil you.

Keeping up the pace with “Oceans of Fire”. Stripped down with simple but spot on drum beat and just enough guitar to give it grit and space.  Again, think Marychain meat Deliverance.

 

Next up, “Teenage Pain” has a slow and brooding vibe. There enough here to put a smile on the face of any Velvets fan or even lovers of the late eighties “shoe gazer” gang.

 

We’re in the home straight now with “Psykik Chemist” bounding along with a cool dirty rockabilly drum beat. “Come on and cure me before I loose my mind” Jason screams but if what’s on show here is any indication, that ship has already sailed.

 

The curtain falls to the sound of “Snake Breath” which the blurb describes as hving a “psychedelic swing” and what a cool song it is.

 

So, eight tracks in around twenty minutes feels like a reasonable proposition for my hard earned but Great album. Get it Here!!!

All right kids. Here’s the bomb. We present “DEMONS” ‘Kiss Off!’ – Their sixth full length and eighth album (if you count the short ones). It will be out on the amazing label God’s Candy Records in April. In the service of punk rock since 1995, this is the band their former label constructed the genre “punk’n’roll” for. Whatever you wanna call it it’s the real deal coming straight from the horse’s mouth of Sweden’s most obscure legends. Surrender to “DEMONS”, get with the program or Kiss Off. Updates to come.

Electrocute live 2008

Geplaatst door "DEMONS" op Woensdag 23 november 2016

On this day in 1976, David Bowie released his tenth studio album ‘Station to Station’, It was this album that he morphed into  the Thin White Duke. The album was recorded after he completed shooting ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’, and the cover artwork featured a still from the movie. The album made the top five in both the UK and US charts.

Also on this very same day in 1990 Bowie announced his forthcoming ‘Sound And Vision’ world tour, Where he would invite each venue audience to decide on a ‘greatest hits’ running order, organised through local radio stations. The concert tour surpassed Bowie’s previous ‘Serious Moonlight’ (’83) and the much-maligned Glass Spider (’87) tours’ He played in 27 countries with over a hundred shows.  Whilst today has some pretty decent Bowie facts I always admired the fact he declined the CBE in 2000 and a knighthood in 2003 a man who did things on his own terms and was never one to tow the establishment line, Christ they’d given him enough shit over the years.

This very same week Bowie seems to choose to keep himself busy over the years as back in 2016 he was at No.1 on both the UK & US album charts with his twenty-fifth studio album ‘Blackstar’, Incredibly Bowie’s only album to top the USA Billboard 200. He was, however, the biggest-selling vinyl artist that year in the UK, with five albums in the vinyl Top 30, including Blackstar as the No.1 selling vinyl album of the year.

Another fact is he was in rehearsals in ’73 for his Ziggy Stardust tour where he later played the Hammersmith Odeon which is where (Sex Pistol) Steve Jones claimed to have gone on a nicking spree and robbed a load of gear off Ziggy and his Spiders. Be it forty-six years or three years I miss Bowie who always stayed a step ahead of the critics and love his work or loathe the releases he never stood still and whatever style he turned to he mastered it and delivered excellent music and continues to inspire and influence musicians the world over.

Ahead of a Headline show in London, that in the past with his band Role Models has sold out RPM caught up with Rags who was under his duvet sucking on some Honey and Lemons throwing off Manflu before Friday nights showdown with More Kicks, The Speedways and The Spangles. Friday night in London Town is always a special show and this one looks set to sell out again and with that line up its going to be memorable (Tickets Here

So Rags first things first – Friday night.  what a fantastic lineup. It must be great to get the support of some really excellent bands for what will be one hell of a nights entertainment right? I know! And the best thing is that all those bands sharing the stage with us are also really close pals! It’s gonna be a crazy party!

Who’s playing in the band Friday?  Is it the same line up that appeared on the recordings?  It’ll be the full lineup on Friday. While it is the kinda band that can play in various incarnations, acoustic duo, piano and vocals and all the way to full volume and huge sounding, we are trying to do as many as we can with all of us.

You recently shot a video for one of the tracks.  Care to elaborate on that for us? When can we see it?
 It’s for the song “Your Distance” and it’s in the editing stages right now. Shot by our good pal Craig Temple. What I’ve seen looks great so far! Can’t wait to share it! I don’t even look like a goblin in it! Loook out!
The BBC has aired a few tracks off the album as well which must be great. Finally, the word is spreading?  what have they had to say about the tracks? Now if Radio two or six would like to jump on board that would be good right?  Yes! It really is a thrill to hear your song on the radio! They have been playing “Your Distance” and “That World”. The latter was the “Track Of The Week” last week as well! There is also really cool news concerning the BBC that I’m afraid I will have to wait on, but I can say we are super excited about it!
What else is planned for The Digressions with Rich Ragany? how about some TV? more live dates?  More live dates and we are working on our second album. I have pretty much written it and the band is putting their incredible touches on it as we speak. Having said that, I think we are gonna let the ideas breathe a bit and not rush. I have done four full-lengths in 4 years now, and, while proud of the accomplishment, I feel I have jumped quick, not letting the previous release have a chance, ya know. But don’t worry! I can’t sit still. And the band is firing on all cylinders creatively.
Do you approach this band the same as Role Models?  I know its a different lineup and different feel to the songs but they share the same DNA and a lot of the personnel is the same will there be any of your other songs played in the set?  I’ll leave that for a surprise.
I’m really excited to hear the full band play the songs off ‘…Like We’ll Never Make It…’  those guys seem to have such a positive energy about them it must be a lot of fun to be around those very talented guys it must be said.  Yes! The chemistry is so wonderful. Nothing like making music with people ya love! I bet it is showing through. I am pretty lucky to be in two situations where the members are family! We are gonna tear it up!
Will you be looking for dates around the UK and maybe some festival dates this coming summer?  Yes sir! Like I said more live dates and chances to drink other bands under the table! I love that our band has this open, jangly positive sound, yet, and this is pretty common knowledge, we are a bit more nuts than most hahahahaha! All good clean fun kids. Leave it to the pros!
 
The Black Heart is sort of your home turf with some pretty memorable shows there with Role Models what are people going to get on the night? They are gonna get us playing and singin’ our hearts out and smilin’ and shots and jokes and tears and… You get it!
You must be stoked with the feedback for the album so far.  The press and bloggers and websites have loved it and really jumped on board with the music which must be pleasing? I am very pleased. A lot of people say reviews and such don’t matter, but I think they do. Especially when they’re coming from a wide cross-section of the media. Blogs and online magazines to print mags from the United States to Europe to the UK. The fact the songs have been received warmly, and have had people that far and wide champion it, means a whole lot to me. To us.
Well, there you have it folks, Rich Ragany & The Digressions live on Friday the 25th January  @ The Black Heart Camden Town London. See you down the front
