Reno Bo - "Lessons From A Shooting Star"

New York born songwriter, musician and producer Reno Bo recently released his the sophomore album "Lessons From A Shooting Star". Before relocating to Nashville TN, Bo spent the previous several years on the road playing bass with The Mooney Suzuki.

As a middle-school kid living in Poughkeepsie, New York, Bo started listening to the Beatles' White Album,  the Rolling Stones' Sticky Fingers and Led Zeppelin I, all things now considered as classic rock.

Years later, those early influences are on full display with "Lessons From a Shooting Star", an album that mixes the hooks and harmonies of classic pop music with the size, sweep and swagger of rock & roll. On this record, Bo as a talented multi-instrumentalist is handling virtually every job — from the songwriting to the bass guitar to the vocals to the production — himself. For a musician who'd spent the past decade touring the world as a member of other people's bands, "Lessons From a Shooting Star" was a chance to focus inward. It was a chance to make music that was completely his. 

The Brighter Side," an amazing power-pop track co-written with Brendan Benson, brings to mind the BIG STAR #1 vibes while "Sweetheart Deal" evokes a young Tom Petty and "Mumbo Johnny" is a nod to Creedence Clearwater Revival. Looks like Bo has learned his lessons well.

Isaac Rother & The Phantoms - The Unspeakable Horror Of

Isaac Rother and The Phantoms call back to an era where rock n' roll was simple and dangerous. The voodoo magic of early rock n' rollers such as Bo Diddley and Screaming Jay Hawkins is seamlessly fused with tough 60's groups like the Animals and the tongue in cheek humor of classic novelty hits like Wooly Bully and Surfin' Bird

Today, with the world of music literally at our fingertips, the camp and ritual of rock n' roll has almost been forgotten, residing mainly in the stories and recordings of the past. Isaac Rother and the Phantoms bring back the golden mystic of this past. They do so with top notch musicianship and hard rocking original material, rendering them a cut above the rest. Behold… The Unspeakable Horror of Isaac Rother and The Phantoms!

The band will be touring Europe this fall, check out the dates:

Optic Nerve - Forever and a Day

Optic Nerve - Forever and a Day
In wav - Scans are included

1 Hopin' To See You
2 Any Day Now
3 Real Go-Getter
4 Hard To Keep
5 A Long Way To Go
6 Call On Me
7 What's Been Missing
8 She's Alright
9 Take Me
10 Tompkins Square Blues

It is incredibly unjust how the Optic Nerve did not achieve a similar success to contemporaries R.E.M.; who, to begin with, owed a great deal to the jingle-jangle chimes of mid-'60s Rickenbacker-fuelled bands. Forever & a Day's ten songs were recorded in 1988 in the music building just off Times Square. And why a label didn't pick them up is unbelievable. Okay, admittedly, in 1988 there wasn't a huge market for Dylanesque rock & roll, but still, the quality of the compositions and performances on these recordings are immeasurably good. If there had been such a thing as the "no depression" or "alt-country" movements in 1988, the Optic Nerve would have definitely been one of the leading bands.

"Van Buren Wheels" 10"

"Van Buren Wheels" 10"

Four out of five of the Wheels were cab drivers (hence the name). Van Buren Street for years was known as Phoenix’s center for drugs, prostitution, cheap motels and illegal street activity in general. Four out of five of the Wheels were heroin addicts at various time. Heroin broke up the band. Vince died in 2009, apparently after tripping over a show or something and hitting his head. Jaime, Steve, Chrissy and Danny live in Phoenix. They still play music. Brew lives in WA. Scott is a fireman or something. The band played 60s punk, blue-eyed soul, British r&b, Dutchbeat and Northwest frat covers live, in addition to their originals. They were high-energy and played most frequently at Tempe AZ’s legendary Long Wong club. There were no other bands playing this kind of music in the Phoenix area at the time, but several popped up during and after the Wheels. 

Will be released on 09 October 2015  on Slovenly Recordings

Come over 
Sunday night T.V.  
Hey dragon 
Beat , beat , beat  
Wildwood blues 
Stuck on you

Produced by Travis Ramin .

The Short Fuses : Miss Georgia Peach : lead vocals /Travis Ramin : lead guitar & bass  / Justin Staggs : rhythm guitar / Duane Burda : bass   / Randy Wiess : bass   /Smack Ramen   : drums .

Upon recording the Sonic Rendezvous Band classic "Electrophonic Tonic" for a tribute cd, the track was heard by surviving SRB member and Detroit music legend Scott Morgan. Morgan was impressed and got in touch with the band to record a duet. The band was thrilled and kicked out two high energy tunes that carried the group to the mighty Spanish label Safety Pin Records, who loved the single so much that an LP was offered. This third LP is The Short Fuses' best. Heavy hitting, wild playing with reckless abandon with the melodic, sexy power vocals of Miss Georgia Peach front and center. Hot rock-n-roll action is the only way to describe this fierce platter.

Slade - Slade In Flame (JAPANESE PRESSING (with bonus tracks)

Slade - Slade In Flame (reupped by request)
In FLAC- Scans are included

1. How Does It Feel? 
2. Them Kinda Monkeys Can't Swing 
3. So Far So Good 
4. Summer Song (Wishing You Were Here) 
5. O.K. Yesterday Was Yesterday 
6. Far Far Away 
7. This Girl 
8. Lay It Down 
9. Heaven Knows 
10. Standin' On The Corner 
11. Thanks For The Memory - bonus track 
12. Raining In My Champagne - bonus track

This is the soundtrack to what is most probably the best rock movie ever made, Slade In Flame. The year was 1974 and Slade had done most things by then, toured the world, had records straight into the charts at number 1 (the first time since the Beatles had done one decade earlier), number one albums and a movie was the next most logical move. However, fans were not ready or not expecting the movie that hit the cinema. Exposing the dark side to the music business was a shrewd and brave move. Most fans were expecting `a hard days' night type of comedy.

PRONTO "Pronto"

PRONTO "Pronto"

Slovenly Recordings presents a new black jewel in the rough from Australia: Melbourne scuzz squad PRONTO, and their self-titled LP will steal your purse n’ pills before kicking holes in your speakers! “Pronto” hits hard from the gate with a rare breed of aggression that mercilessly attacks your better senses with scraping vocal chords, three or less guitar chords and brash, unrelenting rhythmic fuckery. This decroded piece of plastic devolves from hammering rock’n’roll into psyched-out meltdowns, never neglecting the breed of anthemic choruses that were perfected during the first wave of UK punk in a twisted post-punk application. Pronto is making good with ruthless threats of thuggish damage. They’re knocking at your door, and you need the hurt.

release date:  02 October 2015

Sex Slaves play anarcho-sleaze punk. They are obviously in love with rock 'n' roll and learned to party, play and yes even dress by listening to Hanoi Rocks, early Motley Crue and every other sleaze rocker you ever heard of. Motorhead's Lemmy was quoted in UK's music magazine "The Big Cheese" as saying, "I saw a good band called SEX SLAVES from New York - they were pretty good."
