Paradise Alley “Psychotic Playground” 25th Anniversary Edition

This is the release for the 25th anniversary of "Psychotic Playground" (limited edition picture-dic CD) and I'm ashamed to admit that I wasn't familiar with PARADISE ALLEY until now, maybe because they were among the bands that had an album out a bit too late...

The Ghosts Of Lovers “S/T”

When drummer Steve Pegrum told me that he was planning to release a GHOSTS OF LOVERS CD on his own label Angels in Exile Records, I thought it was the best idea ever!
