    Hank Erix 'Nothing But Trouble' CD

    £11.99

    Release Date: 05/10/2018

    Hank Erix is the frontman of the Swedish AOR band HOUSTON. A band that have been a bright star in the AOR / Melodic rock sky over their last five releases. The band received the best AOR album 2010 accolade in Classic Rock Magazine and have appeared on several impressive festivals throughout Europe such as Sweden Rock and Download festival.

    Over almost a decade with HOUSTON, Hank Erix has made quite a name for himself in the melodic rock world and it’s finally time for the release of his solo debut ‘Nothing but Trouble’. The album features songs that has been marinating for years and sees the band leader of HOUSTON taking a bold step forward from the expected Houston sound and sees Hank flexing his more hard rocking muscles.

    Tagging along with Hank Erix on this 1700cc motorcycle ride of an album are members of Therion, Degreed, Art Nation, Wildness, Kryptonite , Palace, Gutterdämerung & Adrenaline Rush. From the opening hook-filled but hard-hitting riffola of opener ‘Turn To Darkness’ through to the brooding and Dokken-esque first single ‘Fortune Hunter’ and the final salvo of ‘For The Restless and Young’, Hank shows a darker and heavier edge while the trademark melody always remains.

    As Hank reveals “they say that life is not about being who you are; it’s about becoming who you want to be. After almost a decade with Houston I’ve learned a lot about myself and the music that I love.

    These songs are me, all me, singing my heart out for the world to hear and this album has been a dream of mine, something to cross off the bucket list if you will” “Hank Erix is a bonafide genius and AOR hero. There, I've said it.” /GloryDazeMusic

    Houston II is the follow-up to the highly acclaimed 2010 debut by the Swedish AOR outfit Houston. The band has been working on the new songs since the last tour of the UK in 2011, and the result shows that it was not chance that got their first album to 1st place of Classic Rock Magazine's top AOR albums of 2010.

    Producer/keyboard player Ricky Delin has for this album become a full member of the band, together with Hank Erix (vocals) and Freddie Allen (drums). The trio has once again used Sweden's finest melodic rock musicians, such as the great Tommy Denander for most guitar parts and long-time band associate Soufian Ma'Aoui for the bass parts. The album's ten tracks were carefully chosen among a ton of material. "Only the really good tunes make the cut.

    We wouldn't release an album with "ok" songs" states Freddie Allen, founding member and main song writer together with Ricky Delin. Together, the duo wrote some of the most notable tracks off the first album, such as Pride, Hold On and Truth Slips - which made 17th place of Classic Rock Magazine's best songs of 2010.

    Vinyl LP strictly limited to 500 copies on transparent blue vinyl.

    The Swedish AOR band HOUSTON is back with their 5th album and 3rd of their series of self-titled releases, this one, simply called “III”. Houston has been around since their self-titled debut album in 2010 and landed the number one in Classic Rock Magazine’s AOR chart that year, up against outfits such as Unruly Child, CrashDiet, H.e.a.t and Nelson.

    The band then went on to play the festival circuit with appearances at Sweden Rock, Download Festival UK, Rock of Ages Germany as well as touring the UK with Swedish sleaze rockers CrashDiet.

    Houston’s second album “Relaunch” featured a cover song called ‘Runaway’ that became the soundtrack to Red Bull’s own Danny MacAskill’s Extreme BMX video ‘Imaginate’ which has over 74 million views on YouTube and 600,000 plays on Spotify and counting.

    The first single from ‘III’ is entitled ‘Dangerous Love’ and is released on October 6th with the album to follow on November 24th. Together with renowned producer and ex MTV rocker Martin Karlegård (Reptile Smile) the band created ‘III’. Martin Karlegård has worked with French idol singer Jenifer, Swedish pop star Brolle Jr and world famous Swedish band ‘The Sounds’ and has helped the band add a mature and organic sound to their brand of classy and classic Melodic Rock.

    As singer Hank Erix explains, "It's been a very creative time with Martin, it's great to find a producer that brings out the best in you for every single take. Personally I’ve never delivered such a vocal performance as on this album. I really found my sound and I have matured musically since our last album and especially since our debut in 2010. This is a new beginning for Houston."

    The song writing is familiar but with a fresh twist and additional attitude from the West Coast / AOR loving band.

    Kory Clarke 'Payback’s A Bitch'

    £11.99

    Whether it be in the form of a stand-up comedian, an artist, poet, musician, or filmmaker, I love a good maverick. The true individual refusing to waver, refusing to pander to the rules of others, is a counter-culture all to his, or her, self.

    The Warrior Soul frontman may well appear to be more prolific in the art rather than music world these days, but that would be doing the guy a major disservice: in the past few years he has released a new Warrior Soul album (2012′s ‘Stiff Middle Finger’), a follow-up to his lauded ‘Opium Hotel’ album (2011′s ‘Opium Hotel II’), an electro-acoustic solo record (‘Light Your Bonfires’, also 2011), and released the long-lost self-titled album from pre-WS outfit The Trial. Kory’s new album, ‘Payback’s A Bitch’, strips his rock back even further. You won’t believe it until you hear it, but he showcases a softer side, a commercially accessible side, a sidestep so severe that it’ll take you aback when you first put the virtual needle on the record.

    The opening (and title) track doesn’t stray too far from what we already know, though – the album easing the listener in gently. Well, the first lyrics sung are “Pissed off!” so not that gently. “Been ripped off so many times, I’m gonna remind the assholes who did it,” KC sings over a cleaner rock ‘n’ roll riff than usual, the song, lyrically, aimed at those who have treated him like shit and taken the piss, musically, destined to cut swathes through smoky barrooms.

    ‘Freak’ is the first of two songs featured on the album written by Bobby Kennedy of the band, Acid (who has also played with David Johansen of the New York Dolls), and it fits the spirit of the record perfectly. Bass-led, with more of a classic glam stomp, the lyrics speak of not knowing where you are or where you’re heading, Kory sympathising with the words given the many projects that he finds himself involved in.

    ‘Devil’s Highway’ pulls Kory back to a more expected political stance with lyrics dedicated to our seemingly never-ending struggle against the might of the military industrial complex. At chorus time it’s as near as the album gets to prime Warrior Soul – think ‘Last Decade Dead Century’ – but the song’s core is one made up of loops and samples, more Nine Inch Nails than Four More Years. Don’t let yourself be fooled into thinking that Kory is about to fall back in line, though….With lyrics by Gary Hood (former guitar tech of Lou Reed), who had previously written for the original ‘Opium Hotel’ album, ‘What Good Is Goodbye’ is a pared-down barroom rock ‘n’ roll ballad that you would expect to hear Spike from The Quireboys singing to a room of waist-coated fans hanging on his every word.

    Dedicated to good friends lost for stupid reasons, generally drug related, this song, complete with harmonica solo, finds Kory at his most honest….thus far. If the previous song surprises, prepare for the next to offer a knockout blow: ‘Get Down To Bizness’ finds Kory forgetting all about the last decade and strutting all the way back to the sick seventies. Channelling James Brown, Sly Stone, Huggy Bear, Black Belt Jones and Foxy Brown, this is one song that is gonna git you, sucka! As fun as it is fantastic, this is KC in a never-before-seen guise…and it works, and works well. Not satisfied with going vintage R ‘n’ B on our asses, Clarke throws out a would-be summer anthem for fun…in both senses of the word.

    ‘Hoezone’ speaks of superficial celebrity idiots yet, musically, pulses out like a twisted take on modern alternative dance music. If you heard this at a nightclub, or on the soundtrack to an MTV ‘reality’ show, you’d be forgiven for never realising that KC was at the helm. We’re used to Kory and his “FU,” just not with “N” at the end. ‘Jägermeister Machine’ belongs on a massive ad campaign for the German digestif, the drink of choice for many a rock ‘n’ roller. The song itself has its tongue firmly in its cheek (or possibly someone else’s) with Kory sounding not unlike Robbie Quine of The Barbarellatones as he spits out a crazed accent-heavy lyric ripping the piss out of being a wild and crazy guy in Berlin. Musically, the song is a brooding take on dark electro; lyrically, it’s a side splitter. “I love singing for you guys,” says Clarke before ‘The Last Hand’ eases its way out of the speakers.

    This is Spike and The Quireboys by way of the Faces again, another slow-burner set to stun….for wholly different reasons to the usual Kory Clarke output, but if you think this is subtle then the closing song, ‘Meet Me In Las Vegas’, will break your heart. Written in Nashville over margaritas and a two year period, this song is the nearest this rock ‘n’ roll mofo has ever gotten to a proper love song and, with its piano and string section, it stings the senses: disbelief possibly reigns, but, ultimately, you’ll realise that this warrior can also pour his heart out in the direction of the one that cares as well as tear it out in objection at the ones who don’t.

    Recording in Porto with producer and multi-instrumentalist Andre Indiana and his wife, singer/songwriter Monica Ferraz has worked wonders for Kory Clarke. Ambitious ideas have been fully captured, experiments pushed to their boundaries: the resulting long player one of the finest you’ll hear all year…for absolutely none of the reasons that you expect going into it. Other than Kory Clarke doing whatever the fuck he wants…and getting away with it. Again.

    Micky Free Electric Blues 'Tattoo Burn'

    £12.99

    Originally discovered by Gene Simmons of KISS, Grammy Award Winner & Multi-Native American Music award winning artist Micki Free is no stranger to success.

    His rich musical history includes his career in Shalamar, his collaboration with Jean Beauvoir in cult AOR legends Crown of Thorns and embracing his Cherokee & Comanche descent - creating Native American flute music. 

    As a rock & blues solo artist Micki has also enjoyed international acclaim, regularly playing the Hard Rock Calling festival in London’s Hyde Park & working with some of rock & pops greatest luminaries (including Prince, Janet Jackson, Wendy O Williams, Gene Simmons & Paul Stanley of KISS, Billy Gibbons & Bill Wyman) to name a few. Chances are you will have heard Micki Free play guitar before. 

    A major player on the music scene, he is rightly known as a guitarist extraordinaire. A guitar hero in the genuine and most traditional sense of the word, Free is bleeding on six strings rather than propped-up by technical wizardry. Micki’s sound is about feeling the groove, soaking up musical influences & channelling them with the deft touch of his own unique flare.

    Tattoo Burn, Micki’s latest blues-rock release on Cargo Records, has all the swagger you would expect; from the hard rocking, riff laden ‘Hole in the Heart of the Blues’ to the traditional ‘Greens & Barbecue’. 

    “Micki Free, is a multi-talented maker of mad machinations in a most mesmerizing manner” -The Rev. Billy F. Gibbons, ZZ Top 

    “Jimi Hendrix rides again!” – Bill Wyman (who performs with Micki on a version of ‘Red House’ on the album)

    "Micki Free is not a Jimi Hendrix impersonator, but a Jimi Hendrix innovator," -Gene Simmons

    “I’m not into guitar technique and/or speed. I am a simple "blues-rock inspired guitarist", influenced by the greats that came before me; Muddy Waters, Albert King, John Lee Hooker, Billy Gibbons and Jimi Hendrix to name a few.  I am only interested in the outcome of my guitar playing in connection with my songwriting or a good "free form jam"....did it move my audience and listeners, did we connect on the level of music” -Micki Free

    Rock fans everywhere immediately recognised their hook-filled brand of Hard Rock with tunes such as; 'Ever See Your Face', 'Reckless', 'Mountain' and the outstanding power ballad 'How Am I'. Soon they were featured in great rock magazines such as Classic Rock and the legendary Japanese publication, Burrn!

    The reviews were outstanding, Classic Rock Magazine (8/10), Powerplay (9/10), Rock Hard (8/10), Burrn! (84%), to name a few of the key publications.

    This Autumn it’s time for Nubian Rose to hit the ground running, their sophomore album, 'Mental Revolution', is set for release on Livewire/Cargo Records. The album is armed with even heavier riffs, deeper melodies and a more mature production. Sweden’s master producer and studio wizard, Tobias Lindell, who has produced albums such as 'Tear The Walls Down” and 'Address The Nation' by HEAT,” 'Split Your Lip, from Hardcore Superstar and 'Last Look Of Eden', by Europe, has mixed 'Mental Revolution' and given it an outstanding and impeccable sound. Nubian Rose are planning on taking the next step of their career and aiming to hit the top division.
