Paradise Alley/Plastic Tears “Class of ’92” Single

This song celebrates the friendship between these two bands. PARADISE ALLEY (England)'s frontman Steve Vincent met PLASTIC TEARS (Finland)' frontman Miqu December in 1992 at the Hellfire club in London. These weren't the best times for rock'n'roll, but there was still a scene and both vocalists were about to start their own bands. PARADISE ALLEY... Continue Reading →

The Empire Strikes “Charm”

Helsinki's 70s rock influenced band The EMPIRE STRIKES are back with 12 songs. I guess opening an album with a song called "The End" is an interesting move especially when the song has a tragic and grandiloquent feel to it. Even though songs like "Danger", "Leeches, Lies and a Mighty Hoax" or"Amor Por La Vida... Continue Reading →

The Brothers Steve “#1”

If you don't, then rush and grab their albums! 3 members of TSAR play in The BROTHERS STEVE, but the music of the band is more influenced by TEENAGE FANCLUB, GUIDED BY VOICES or The KINKS. The 60s powerpop influences perfectly... Continue Reading →

The Laissez Fairs “Marigold”

Las Vegas Psych mods The LAISSEZ FAIRS are back with this 16 song album (double album?) on Rum Bar Records. Opening song "Long Grow The Marigolds" brings you back to 60s psychedelism before "Phantom Stranger" will make you space dance! "My Thursday" Girl" has a bit of an early BOWIE vibe, "Mister Wryly" and "We'll... Continue Reading →

STIV: No Compromise No Regrets DVD

(-REVIEW by Moses Midnight) ATTITUDE AND SOCIAL CHANGE 1983 was the year we first formed our goth gang. We were dirty and sweet untamed youth, a loose collective of much hated misfits, new wave poseurs, Smash Hits magazine readers, and Baby Bowies, discovering new music and makeup and styling products, just kissing to be clever....
