Kory Clarke and Discharge are the first two bands up to the crease this week. Then we have a run of three tracks that have Hanoi Rocks connections; The Compulsions featuring Sami Yaffa, Club Wow featuring Jimmy Zero who wrote 'The Nights Are So Long' that Michael Monroe covered on his 1stsolo album of the same name, then lastly Grease Helmet that can name Andy McCoy in their ranks. The Datsuns are up next and then it's Vice Squad with a track from their latest album 'Punk Rock Radio'. Bloodlights have been busy recording LP number 3. One of the tracks to emerge has been co-written by Turbonegro's bassist Happy Tom. Obviously it gets played. Donnie Vie, who I thought I was going to see live but thanks to a geographical error and Mrs Baden Powell I didn't, has a track from his latest album aired.
NOTE.After I uploaded the show I discovered that where the Donnie Vie track should be there is just silence. This does give you time to nip to the loo though. The track will be played next week pop pickers.
Live it's The Gang and G.M.T. that's Bernie Tormé, John McCoy and Robin Guy, recorded at The Boston Music Rooms. I also can confirm, thanks to Bernie, that the 'Brown Note' theory exists.
