Under the renowned Tennessee-based legendary independent record label, Sun Records, often referred to as the place “where rock and roll was born,” Suzi has released a 6-song cover, EP .  Uncovered  boasts cameos from famed two-time GRAMMY® Award-winning guitarist and songwriter Steve Cropper (Booker T. & The MGs, Sam and Dave, Otis Redding, The Blues Brothers) on two iconic tracks he co-wrote, Wilson Pickett’s “Midnight Hour” and Otis Redding’s “Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay.” The first single from the EP see’s Suzi digging into the Creedence Clearwater Revival classic, “Bad Moon Rising” and is Out Now.

The EP includes six incendiary renditions of popular 1960s and 1970s rock n’ roll and soul classics filtered through Suzi’s distinctive musicality – showcasing her honey and whiskey rasp – Uncovered features nuanced and grooving musicianship that keeps each song’s timeless intentions aflame, while the musicians also punch the jams up to match Suzi’s hard rocking energy. Completing the impressive track list are Suzi-fied versions of Carole King’s “I Feel The Earth Move,” James Brown’s “The Boss,” and Rufus Thomas’ “Walking The Dog.”

Suzi says: “Since I first picked up a bass guitar and started playing and singing in my first band in 1964, many artists helped show the way, I honor them here with this eclectic choice of songs. Every one of them is here for a reason. Thank you all for your inspiration.”

Since her debut in 1973, Suzi has released 63 singles, 18 studio albums, 20 compilation albums, and two live albums. Over the span of almost 50 years, Suzi is reported to have sold over 50 million records worldwide.

Written and recorded in-between lockdowns in 2020, New Zealand born but London based punks Desperate Measures managed to escape the COVID-19 madness for some cathartic writing and recording sessions and the first taste of those gatherings arrives today with ‘The Rich-Tual’,  a bullet of classic punk reloaded for the pandemic generation that rips from the speakers screaming ‘fuck the system, before the system fucks you!’ Recorded at The Brook Studios in South London by Andy Brook, ‘The Rich-Tual’ is taken from a forthcoming mini-album that will be released this summer by British rock n’ roll label Easy Action (home to and in good company with Iggy and the Stooges, The Damned’s Brian James, Marc Bolan and T-Rex and Lords Of The New Church). The video, assembled by Craig Temple, perfectly captures the intensity of ‘The Rich-Tual’.

Hollywood rock ‘n’ roll band Frankie and The Studs have recently unleashed their killer new single ‘(Not Your) Victim’, out now via Punktured Media. Frankie and The Studs just penned a deal with Australia’s Punktured Media, with ‘(Not Your) Victim’ the first offering.

Frankie had this to say about their new single: “(Not Your) ‘Victim’ is a song inspired by the inherent strength women possess. Through the challenges of living in a patriarchal society, we can never have  enough reminders of our innate superpowers as women. Women supporting women is a powerful force to be reckoned with and this
song reminds us to do just that

Written by Frankie Clarke and Anthony Stasi and produced by Paul Miner at Buzzbomb Studios CA, ‘(Not Your) Victim’ breaks in an era where women are empowered and independent. Potent lyrics, energetic and extremely catchy, this track makes a strong statement and conveys what can be achieved when women stand up and unite.
Frankie has a prolific family history in the music and fashion industries…it’s flowing through her veins. Influenced by the leather clad rock icons Suzi Quatro and Joan Jett, Frankie has her own designer style with the band, echoing ‘70’s rock.

A savvy businesswoman on one side and on the other.….when she hits the stage with The Studs and dons her guitar, she ignites the verve that is Frankie and The Studs! There’s no middle ground here folks, this quartet uses power-chord shout-outs and spiky lullabies to define their nighttime worlds and busted hearts.

‘(Not Your) Victim’ is available on all your favourite streaming and digital platforms from September 18th.

Some claim Suzi is the “Queen of Rock & Roll” but for me, that just doesn’t cover it. Suzi is TOTAL ROCK & ROLL! She stands alongside Lemmy, at the top of the pile, influencing all the people that influenced your favourite bands.

It seems almost crass to remind you of Ms. Quatro’s history. Not only are there the great singles like ‘Can The Can’, ‘48 Crash’ and ‘Devil Gate Drive’, but there’s also been 17 studio over the last five (yeah FIVE !!!) decades and of course there was her heart mangling role as Leather Tuscadero in the classic TV series Happy Days. As a matter of fact, I was innocently sporting my Suzi shirt on the KissKruise last year when bloke after bloke after bloke stopped me share their Suzi love. See, not all Kiss fans are bellends.

Anyway, enough of the bull and on with the show…

No Soul/No Control is a dirty rock revelation. It’s kind of L7 to be honest, with a bit of Foo Fighters thrown in for good measure and it’s a banger!!! Going Home is grinding blues, with than a hint Joan Jett – probably owing more to Suzi’s influence on Ms. Jett than the other way around.

First single,  Macho Man is pure Deep Purple and probably my favourite track on the album. A guaranteed future live favourite, sure to take centre stage amongst the Quatro classics. 

Easy Pickings has that kind of sleazy shuffle favoured by Mr. David Lee Roth and is another great slab of rock& roll.

Don’t Do Me Wrong takes you back to the land of the dirty blues, while  I Can Teach You To Fly has a badass Neil Diamond vibe to it that drags you right back to the sixties and won’t let go.

Suzi is non-stop and not stopping. As she rightly says, “I’ll retire when I go onstage, shake my ass and there is silence” and I’m not holding my breath for that moment!

No Control is released on March 29th, 2019  on CD along with a super sexy double LP on yellow with black swirly vinyl (complete with a couple of extra tracks and free CD version).

Look out for Suzi on tour across the UK this April.

Suzi Quatro, who more than lives up to her name as the “Queen Of Rock N’ Roll”, has signed with SPV / Steamhammer Records to release her stunning new studio album ‘No Control’ on March 29th.

The American rock vocalist has enjoyed success as a musician for more than fifty years, performing with unbridled energy her greatest hits such as ‘Can The Can’, ‘48 Crash’, ‘If You Can’t Give Me Love’, ‘She’s In Love With You’ and ‘Devil Gate Drive’, let alone wowing her fans again and again with her new material. It comes as no surprise that she’s not thinking of retiring; “I’ll retire when I go onstage, shake my ass and there is silence” she states, fully aware that that moment is still a long way off.

The majority of ‘No Control’, which contains eleven brand new songs, (plus two bonus tracks), consists of collaborations with her son from her first marriage, Richard Tuckey. Suzi explains “This was our first attempt at writing and recording something together. The creative progress began with ‘Don’t Do Me Wrong’. And, through the unusually beautiful English summer of 2018, we sat outside, acoustic bass, acoustic guitar, iPad recording app, and lots of paper, throwing ideas back and forth.” With amazing results, as the new album proves – to Suzi herself not only on a musical but also on a personal level.

Take, for example, ‘No Soul/No Control’, which features the message “Don`t let go of yourself for anyone”; Suzi: “This is my personal mantra. All you have in this world is you.” Remembering the conception of the composition, she says; “We were busy as hell, buried in the songs. Richard had a new idea and showed me. It was very unusual and I liked it. A very basic guitar and drum track was put down for me to work on the melody and lyric. I went into the living area of the studio and about 15 minutes later, it was done. It flew out of its own accord, as the best songs do.”

The same applies to numbers such as ‘Macho Man’ (Suzi: “It’s a no-brainer that this is an opening live song; you cannot help headbanging to it, it just grabs you”), ‘I Can Teach You To Fly’ (“a definite throwback to the sixties”), ‘Easy Pickings’ (“I’ve been playing this riff on acoustic guitar forever, at least the last ten years. Then all of a sudden, it became a song”) and ‘Love Isn’t Fair’ (“Got this idea sitting in our Hamburg home. I wanted to create a Blondie-meets-Mavericks song, and I think I accomplished that”).

Perhaps most unusual track on the album, ‘Strings’, has developed into a true little masterpiece during the studio recordings. Suzi: “This is all about the strings that tie our lives together. Great riff. I drove everyone mad singing nonstop in this weird voice ‘Strings’. I couldn’t get it out of my head, and – hallelujah – it came out in the recording exactly as I’d imagined.” Then saxophone player Ray Beavis asked if he could do a horn arrangement. “I didn’t really hear it, but of course I said yes. What he came up with knocked us all off our feet. What a track!”

You can tell how proud Suzi Quatro is of ‘No Control’; pride and delight at a career which has lasted for five decades and has maintained the creativity of the American rock icon to the present day. Suzi states “I’ve never stopped releasing through the years. ‘Back To The Drive’ in 2006, ‘In The Spotlight in 2011’, ‘Quatro, Scott & Powell’ in 2016. These albums were thought about and planned out in great detail. I am proud of all three releases, very proud. But my new album ‘No Control’ is its own animal.”
