    Carousel Vertigo 'Revenge Of Rock n" Roll' CD


    Rock is dead, long live rock!

    It's been said before and will be said again. The truth is that rock music is and always will be here to stay, especially when a band like Carousel Vertigo creates, feels and plays it like it does.

    Revenge of Rock and Roll'. The title says it all and the second album by Carousel Vertigo makes a clear musical statement; about a trend-proof musical genre, about its importance, now and always, to the loyal millions who will forever support it - and about how that shit just never grows old, say what you will about it.

    Revenge of Rock and Roll'finds Paris-based Carousel Vertigo - three native French rockers and an American - doing what this band does best and loves the most, regardless of opinions or passing phases, because hard rock truly is timeless and ever-present.

    Carousel Vertigo's masterful take on it, the band's innate understanding of the history of rock's past and a vision of its future, is convincing and current enough to have attracted some stellar accomplices on Revenge of Rock and Roll' - not least among them Garry Tallent, long-serving bass player with Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, who happily guested for a bottle of Bourgogne'on one of the album's ten tracks.

    The lyrical reach of those songs ranges from the rallying call of the title track to, on Don't Take It To Heart', a hometown point of view on the terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015.

    The nucleus of the band, Gibson Guitars-endorsed Parisian Vincent Martinez and New Jersey son Jansen Press, formed Carousel Vertigo purely out of a shared love of the classic rock music they both revelled and could play so well. Although each came from a different culture and country, they were instantly united by the other's ability to express that music in different but complementary ways - and a dual-lead guitar partnership of virtuosity and instinct was born.

    Riding above it all, Vincent's vocal - one moment a pure, hair-raising wail, the next soulful and sweetly emotive honey - establishes Carousel Vertigo as the real deal. The best band you've never heard playing the greatest music you think you already know but don't. Not yet... Rock and roll is very much alive.

    Revenge of Rock and Roll'will be released by Molano Music.

    Rhino"s Revenge 'Rhino"s Revenge II'


    In a rare break from his day job as the bass player with Status Quo, John Rhino'Edwards releases his second solo album, Rhino's Revenge II, on October 30. Rhino's Revenge II (Molano Music), is an energetic and diverse album that celebrates music and comes 15 years after the band's debut album. 'By any standards, that's a long time between albums' says Rhino, 'but when you're fortunate enough to be in a band like Quo, you don't get too much spare time!'Having previously been a member of acts including The Climax Blues Band, Space and Dexy's Midnight Runners, Rhino was invited to join Quo in 1987 and has been permanent in the line-up ever since.

    Rhino's Revenge lI was recorded in '11 days of pure magic'at The Chapel studios near Louth in Lincolnshire with his sons Max on drums and Freddie on guitar, and multi-instrumentalist Matthew Starritt. 'We went flat out, so we didn't have time to get precious about anything,' Rhino explains. "I play Rhino Rock, Thug Rock, Animal Rock, Heavy Rock, Pop Rock, but with the main focus on the lyrics and the songs. It's rabble-rousing rock n roll.' Production duties were carried out by Mike Paxman (Judie Tzuke, Status Quo, Uriah Heep, Asia).

    Rhino's Revenge II is an aural treat, no calculated image or reliance on nostalgia: instead Rhino and the band have created an atmosphere based around strong material and succeed in immersing listeners into the ambiance they have made. The album is the perfect manifestation of John Rhino'Edwards'immutable wit, sadness, quiet anger and charm.

    The cathartic Tomorrow Is Today', which opens Rhino's Revenge II, was written about giving up drugs. A brace of keenly observed songs about the vacuous aspects of modern life follow; Famous'is a damning indictment 'about people who think that that's all there really is to life', while New New New'lambasts our obsession with consumerism.

    Rhino Edwards'articulate and wickedly humorous lyrics permeate throughout the album on the ironic 'All The Girls Love A Bastard' along with powerful rockers like Secretary'and Cougar and the whimsical ode to man's best friend Stan. While One Note Blues creates a 'new dance craze.'
    This quintessentially English album closes with the powerful pairing of Black Widows and Take Em Down. The sociopolitical Black Widows about Chechen suicide bombers contains the prophetic line "what's over there is coming over here' and the bass driven Take Em Down, is a very serious song with B-movie overtones.

    There's something indefinable but very special about Rhino's Revenge I. Something that makes it irresistible. Rhino Edwards, a confessed musicoholic, has created a truly honest album which kicks like a mule', a rare commodity in today's world.
    Rhino's Revenge will be playing their own shows to promote the album and also supporting Hayseed Dixie on 5 of their tour dates this October:
