Robin Lane latest album of acoustic – folk rock, country, titled Dirt Road To Heaven was released in August of last year. There is a new song / video from it – “Woman Like That”, a catchy tale which talks about trying to deal with a female fan who stalks her. The video appropriately filmed in a campfire setting As one verse goes – “as the years went by she wanted to be thicker than kin, and I couldn’t get her unglued from my skin, just like uriah heep she’s as unctuous as they come, what does she want from me my friend i’m wonderin”
The song features Asa Brebner on banjo and Drew Townson on Irish style electric guitar, while Robin sings and playing acoustic guitar. Robin says the music is “just probably in my blood from listening to Appalachian music while learning guitar and Bert Jansch and the late Sandy Bull (a folk artist). On this, I have banjo flailing style that I kind of do on guitar at the beginning and at the end and in between. I could play that kind of music all day–very soothing and I’ve been accused of a droning sound.”
Robin Lane’s career goes back to the late ’60s in Laurel Canyon, where she sang on Neil Young’s “Round And Round (It Won’t Be Long)”, from his Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere album. She soon relocated to the east coast, and in the late ’70s/ early ’80s formed and recorded with Robin Lane & The Chartbusters.
Dirt Road to Heaven is a collection of Americana music that sounds great alongside artists such as Brandi Carlile and Joan Baez. Robin’s motto of “Music is my healing tool” has paved her uniquely uplifting “dirt road to heaven” process from the get-go.

British blues rocker legends Ten Years After released A Space In Time in 1971. The album was the band’s first for new labels Chrysalis (UK, Europe) and Columbia (North America). A Space In Time saw the band aim for a wider audience, with more acoustics and less of the heavy blues sound that made them such a success in the UK, where their previous 3 albums all went top 10. But this album featured their most famous worldwide hit “I’d Love To Change The World”, and despite that the album and song were not huge hits in the UK. The band featured legendary guitarist Alvin Lee, bass player Leo Lyons, drummer Ric Lee, and keyboard player Chick Churchill. “Baby Won’t You Let Me Rock N Roll You” was released as the album’s 2nd single, the album’s heaviest cut. Despite the lighter approach A Space In Time features lots of great acoustic based tracks – “I’ve Been There Too” (where Alvin Lee put in a classic rockin’ solo to lift things up), the standout ballad “Here They Come”, and “Hard Monkeys”, a song about drug abuse (‘junkie blues’), and highlighted by Lee’s blistering solo and vocals. A must-have album from the late 60s/early 70s rock era.
A Space In Time has been remixed by it’s engineer Chris Kimsey (who’s lengthy list of credits include The Rolling Stones, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Peter Frampton, and Marillion). The remixed edition, along with the remastered original version are being released together in March on CD and vinyl. For more details check out the press release, as well as the links below…
British rock legends UFO have released an exciting live version of “Only You Can Rock Me” from the forthcoming reissue of 1998’s live recording Werewolves of London (Live In Wolverhampton). The show saw the reunited band, following the release of the awesome Walk On Water album from ’95 – which featured the classic line-up of Phil Mogg, Paul Raymond, Michael Schenker, Andy Parker and Pete Way. Parker left following Walk On Water, and was replaced on tour by Simon Wright (AC/DC, Dio). Werewolves of London is a great recording of UFO still sounding as energetic as they had 2 decades earlier. The set list was still comprised largely of the classics that featured on their classic Strangers In The Night live album, as well as including a few (then) new outstanding tracks from Walk On Water (“A Self Made Man”, “Venus” and “Pushed To The Limit”), plus a pair gems with “Electric Phase” (from 1977’s Lights Out) and “One More For The Rodeo” (from ’78’s Obsession).
From the press release – “this fantastic concert album is being remastered and re-released on both physical and digital formats. Hear the group rip through several highlights from Walk On Water (“Pushed To The Limit,” “A Self Made Man”) as well as their best-loved works, the unstoppable juggernauts “Doctor Doctor,” “Lights Out,” “Rock Bottom” and more! By way of previewing the release, the group’s killer version of “Only You Can Rock Me” is being released as a single, which will be followed by the full album on CD and audiophile quality 180 GRAM BLACK vinyl on February 17. Additional vinyl colors – RED, YELLOW, BLUE & PURPLE – will be released a few weeks later on March 24th. Order yours now!”
British blues rockers Bad Luck Friday have a new single out – “Rebel With A Cause”. The single on Wilde Fire Records, from the band’s debut album can be streamed HERE and check out the video below. *For more check out the press info and links below!
“Rebel With A Cause is Bad Luck Friday’s unambiguous statement about Britain’s current political climate,” says the band’s guitarist Steve Brook. “Channelling Rage Against the Machine, the track’s opening riff serves as a rallying call to the disaffected, the downtrodden and jaded alike: get off your rear and get to the front! It’s big, bold and demands to be heard.”
Don’t be fooled by the harmonica. Bad Luck Friday is not your typical blues rock band. Will Wilde has a reputation in the blues world as a pioneer of the rock harp, but with Bad Luck Friday, he’s taken the music well beyond its traditional blues roots.
The band’s eponymous debut album is available on CD and limited edition coloured vinyl from www.badluckfriday.com.
Texas (San Antonio) doom metal band Las Cruces released their 4th album in 2022. The band formed in the mid-90s and underwent a number of changes (pretty sure no one on the band’s 1996 debut album is still here). Cosmic Tears took a number of years to get released, and features most of the same line-up as the band’s 2010 album Dusk. This one features Jason Kane on vocals (Kane of Jason Kane & The Jive), who joined the band and recorded his vocals when he was just 17. These guys have some cool album covers, with Cosmic Tears being done by Michelle Sanchez Menchaca.
Cosmic Tears is full of heavy doom metal, very much in tune with early Black Sabbath, with dark heavy slow riffs, heavy on the bass and fantastic drums. This album really is a solid set of songs front to back that any self-respecting Sabbath fan should check out, with the near 8 minute opening title track, and album favorites being the lead off single/video “Wizard From The North”, “Egypt”, and “Holy Hell”. The CD features 10 tracks, while the LP (which I have) includes just seven.
This album was finally released in June of last year, and is a tribute to longtime drummer Paul DeLeon who passed away in January of ’21 from complications of Covid. The band did play live last year to promote the album and are booked at the Maryland Doom Festival in June of this year.

From Sweden, Autumn Child release their 4th album of hard-rock/AOR. Fronted by Michael Erlandsson (ex Secret Service, as well as solo artist) Starflower features a number of well produced songs, including upbeat rockers and a few ballads, full of hooks, synths and melodic guitars, with big vocal arrangements on the choruses. Favorite tracks include “Gamechanger”, “Welcome To The Show”, and “1995”. If you’re in to the likes of Europe, Fair Warning, or Gary Hughes’ Ten, check this out. * For more info check out the bio/press info below.
Mikael Erlandsson needs no further introduction when it comes to melodic rock. He has released six successful solo albums and a lot of titles with groups like Phenomena, Salute among others. Between 2006-2018 Erlandsson fronted the Swedish super group Secret Service which he toured with live all over the world. Together with the fantastic guitar player Andy Malecek from the successful German hard rock band Fair Warning he founded the band LAST AUTUMNS DREAM in 2003 which also featured Ian Haugland, Mic Michaeli and John Leven of Europe fame at the time.
Last Autumn’s Dream went on releasing another 14 albums with different line ups including great musicians like Jamie Borger (Treat) and Marcel Jacob (Talisman). They toured Japan, England and Germany but decided to take a break in 2018. Shortly after, Erlandsson founded the group AUTUMN’S CHILD who have released three extremely successful albums so far (“Autumn’s Child” – 2019, “Angel’s Gate” – 2020, “Zenith” – 2022).
January 2023 sees Autumn’s Child returning with their fourth album “Starflower”, their second release via Pride & Joy Music. The group still features Michael Erlandsson on vocals, keyboards & guitars, Pontus Åkesson on lead guitar, Robban Bäck on drums, Claes Andreasson on piano and Magnus Rosen on bass.
“Starflower” was produced by Mikael Erlandsson & Claes Andreasson, mixed and mastered by Mikael Andersson at Soundport Studios, Sweden; drums recorded by Mikael Andersson at Soundport Studios.
Track list: 1. Gamechanger, 2. Aphrodite’s Eyes, 3. Welcome To The Show, 4. Opera, 5. Karenina, 6. 1995, 7. Dorian Gray, 8. I Can’t Get Enough, 9. The Final Call, 10., Love From Tokyo, 11. It’s Not Too Late
The classic 1980 album from The Alan Parson Project – Turn Of A Friendly Card is being reissued in a 4 disc (3 CD + DVD) box. The album was highlighted by 2 major hits – “Games People Play” – featuring the amazing vocals of Lenny Zakatek, and the ballad “Time”. It also included such favorites as “I Don’t Wanna Go Home”, “The Gold Bug” (a single) and “Turn Of A Friendly Card” (Parts One & Two). The original album is an awesome listen on it’s own, but the numerous demos, early takes, and rough mixes make this even more interesting. I am quite happy hearing a number of versions of “Games People Play”! To be released February 24, with a limited number of collector’s postcards available.

I’m not a big fan of covers albums, but I eventually picked up Saxon’s Inspirations from 2021, and thought it was a fine addition to the band’s catalogue, and they’re following it up with a ‘part 2’, simply titled More Inspirations (hmm, will part 3 be called ‘Even More…’ ?) Anyway, the first single sounds great, a cover of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band’s “The Faith Healer”, and I’m looking forward to hearing many of the titles included on it, such as Heep’s “Gypsy”, Alice Cooper’s “From The Inside”, ZZ Top’s “Chevrolet”, and Rainbow’s “Man On The Silver Mountain.” *Check out a full track listing below, the first video, and all the links and order info below! As well, read the press info for more details.
British Heavy Metal legends Saxon unveil the first single “The Faith Healer”, from the upcoming More Inspirations – set for release on March 24th via Silver Lining Music. Following the release of Inspirations in 2021, More Inspirations is the second ‘deep dish’ serving of the influences which have fed the mighty Saxon’s immensely successful 40+ year career. The first single is an astonishing take on The Sensational Alex Harvey Band’s “The Faith Healer”.
Frontman Biff Byford comments “We used to see The Sensational Alex Harvey band play this back in the day, they started the set with it, such a fantastic song and fantastic band… big influence!” Listen To/Watch “The Faith Healer”, the “making of” video directed by Jay Shredder.
Whether getting feral with The Animal’s “We’ve Gotta Get Out Of This Place”, letting loose a high-octane take on Alice Cooper’s “From The Inside”, or laying down a ferocious tribute to KISS’ “Detroit Rock City”, More Inspirations is a joyous trip into the sounds which galvanized the Barnsley boys and continue to get spun on home stereos and tour buses.
Produced by vocalist/co-founder Biff Byford, with Seb Byford helping record the music alongside mixing engineer Jacky Lehmann. More Inspirations also includes enthusiastic takes on Alice Cooper, Rainbow, ZZ Top and Cream, as well as a thunderous “Razamanaz” by Nazareth, a tasty take on The Who’s “Substitute”, and a thick groove take on Uriah Heep’s “Gypsy”. Whether this is your first dance with such classic songs, or you’ve come to see where Saxon were born, More Inspirations delivers the goods and then some. Following the success of the Seize the World Tour 2022, Saxon will be back on the road in March 2023 for a string of European dates, with special guest’s German metal titans RAGE. For a full list of confirmed dates, tickets, and additional information visit this this location.
More Inspirations will be available on 12” Black Vinyl, CD Digipak, digital formats and special D2C bundles; to pre-order go tothis location.
Bad Magic was Motorhead’s last studio album. Released in 2015, and featuring such favorites as “Victory Or Die”, “Fire Storm Hotel”, “Evil Eye”, and “Till The End”, as well as the band’s version of The Stones’ “Sympathy For The Devil”. I liked those last few Motorhead albums, Bad Magic and it’s predecessor Aftershock were both strong records. Since Lemmy’s passing In December of 2015 there have been a number of archived Live releases, but Bad Magic: SERIOUSLY BAD MAGIC gets a nice reissue hear, adding a few previously unreleased studio tracks, “Bullet In Your Brain” – which has been issued as a video/single, “Greedy Bastards” – an outstanding track intro’d by Lemmy speaking on politicians (“all politicians are assholes!”), plus Motorhead’s excellent take on David Bowie’s “Heroes”, which had been previously been included on the 2017 compilation Under Cover. There is also a bonus live disc added of the band’s performance at Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, in February of 2015, which makes this a more enticing package for fans.

Motörhead, the iconic Godfathers of heavy metal, released their 23rd (and final) studio album Bad Magic in 2015. Instantly hailed as one of the best the beloved trio had recorded in many years, Bad Magic: SERIOUSLY BAD MAGIC enjoys a bonus-packed refresh, adding two previously unreleased tracks from those furious sessions:
“Bullet in Your Brain” and “Greedy Bastards” as well as a snarling, fangs-out live performance from that subsequent tour at the giant Mt Fuji Festival in Japan in 2015. Fans will also get “War, Love, Death and Injustice”, an audio interview with Lemmy conducted by Motörhead expert Robert Kiewik during the tour, and should the desire to have a chat with Lem or anyone beyond this mortal coil arise, the box-set will exclusively contain a MURDER ONE ouija board (complete with the Ace of Spades planchette to spell out the conversation).
A new video for “Bullet In Your Brain”, featuring exclusive, never before seen footage of Motörhead in the studio for the Bad Magic sessions, is available right now. A foot-down, fist-pumping, Lemmy-bass-driven stomper with a deliciously dirty Campbell riff, and Dee-driven dynamics, both the song and footage are a tremendous treat for fans who have craved new Motörmaterial.
At the time of its release back in 2015, Bad Magic arrived as a massive kick in the teeth for anyone who believed Motörhead were going to amble along into a peaceful little pasture containing fluffy little lambs, folk music and perhaps the odd medieval lute here and there. Big-rig head crushers such as “Thunder & Lightning” and “Teach Them How To Bleed” brought such people to their knees begging for forgiveness, as the album unfurled into their toughest, leanest, meanest and most uncompromising album in aeons. Much of this came down to long-time producer Cameron Webb getting the band to record live at NRG North Hollywood, Maple Studios and Grandmaster in California together for the first time in the Kilmister/Campbell/Dee era, and from the crackling punk energy of “Electricity” to Brian May of Queen’s scintillating guest-appearance on “The Devil”, a vast wealth of aggression, attitude, and excellent songwriting was cultivated in that furious working environment. Phil Campbell didn’t just record possibly his finest guitars, he threw down most certainly his best solos for decades, while Mikkey Dee’s drumming found new tribal resonance with the Motörhead sound he had helped nurture. There was also one of Lemmy’s rawest lyrical life reflections on “Till The End”, and a cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy For The Devil” which made the song feel like one of their own. One of the hidden gold-dust additions to Bad Magic: SERIOUSLY BAD MAGIC, is Motörhead’s famous, and internationally acclaimed, version of David Bowie’s classic “Heroes”. Originally slated for inclusion on the last release only to be withdrawn at the last minute, it was a cover version which Lemmy had a great affection for, and as such its inclusion here is both fitting and just.
As the title says, this is Motörhead delivering some SERIOUSLY BAD MAGIC.
Bad Magic: SERIOUSLY BAD MAGIC will be released on Double 12” Vinyl, CD Digipak with Bonus Disc, Limited Edition Boxset, Digital Download and Streaming. The Limited Edition Boxset will contain the CD Digipak with Bonus Disc, Double 12” Vinyl, exclusive Lemmy War, Love, Death and Injustice audio interview on 12” vinyl and exclusive edition Motörhead – MURDER ONE Ouija Board and Planchette.

American blues rocker Jared James Nichols has a brand new album out. It is self-titled, and it kicks ass! JJN sounds heavy and live! The guy plays guitar like he’s on stage, and has a distinctive enough and fitting vocal for such wild rockin’ tunes as “Saint Or Fool”, “Easy Come, Easy Go”, and the Sabbath heavy “Hallelujah”. Other excellent tracks in “Long Way To Go”, which reminds of John Corabi’s Dead Daisy stuff (on the vocal), as well check out the slower paced closing cut “Out Of Time”. Well worth checking out – today!
JJN:“I made a record to serve as the menu for the live show, ….There’s an element of excitement and danger. It’s my version of rock ‘n’ roll with a little more humanity. The album is a day in the life with the ups and downs, but it musically rings true to who I am as an artist. I’m not trying to be anybody but myself and play the music I love for today. I’m giving you loud ass guitars and no fucks given rock ‘n’ roll, and I’m loving it.”

OFFICIAL ALBUM RELEASE SHOWS SET FOR NASHVILLE, LOS ANGELES, FRESNO, CHICAGO & MILWAUKEE
EUROPEAN TOUR DATES CONFIRMED FOR FEBRUARY 9-22
With nothing more than a Gibson Les Paul slung over his shoulder, a warm amp turned all the way up, and a hot microphone on and ready, Jared James Nichols churns out the kind of rock that rips, roars, and rolls without filter or apology. Nichols, who stands at a staggering 6 foot 5 inches tall, delivers a one-two punch of gritty vocals straight from the gut and incendiary fret fireworks. Jared first emerged onto the scene in 2015 with his debut Old Glory & The Wild Revival and followed that up with Black Magic in 2018, which yielded the fan favorite “Honey Forgive Me.”
More recently, he issued the Shadow Dancer EP (2021) and collaborated earlier this year with both Maggie Rose and Joe Bonamassa for revised versions of his song “Threw Me To The Wolves.” Gibson also formally welcomed Nichols as an official ambassador, plotting the release of several signature Jared James Nichols guitars. Since his debut, Nichols has racked up millions of streams and critical acclaim and, in between show-stopping solo shows, has performed alongside icons such as Slash, Billy Gibbons, Zakk Wylde, and even the late Leslie West, to name a few.
Guitar World has attested, “If you’ve never witnessed Jared James Nichols onstage, let us say right now: you’re missing out, big time.” By keeping it simple, Jared remains primed to leave his imprint on rock ‘n’ roll forever.
