Jet Black Kiss “Power Of Three”

Power_Of_ThreeL.A.’s JET BLACK KISS is actually one man: Robert S. Liam (aka “Simon”), who is back with 12 industrial rock/metal songs.”The Flame”, or “Dogs Of War” sound a bit like a mix of KILLING JOKE and WHITE ZOMBIE with a big dose of metal thrown into it (lots of double bass drum!)
The rock/pop influences can be found in a surprising cover of GARBAGE‘s “Only Happy When It Rains”, in alternative sounding songs like “Guns”, “A Beautiful Day”, or the ballad “Bullet Train.” You’ll also find punk traces in “Car Crash” and “I Just Wanted To Kill Her”, a bit of new wave in “Psycho Baby”; and songs like “We All Must Come Together”, or “She’s An Alien” remind me of WARRIOR SOUL, which isn’t a bad thing at all, right? /Laurent C.

Every Day Is Like Sunday Megazine #5

NastypackageMonsieur Nasty Samy tell us about his “Dirty Black Summer” (the movies he watched, the records he bought, etc. during Summer 2012) in this special issue which is actually the last one… But you know the man, he always has tons of ideas and projects going on.
A colourful horror magazine-like cover and 74 cool looking black & white, cut & paste pages should be enough to entertain you for a while. Horror movies, comic books and rock’n’roll biographies (there’s a long review of Johnny Ramone’s “Commando”) are still more than welcome and the music you’ll find in here ranges from punk rock to thrash metal (names like OVERKILL, KREATOR, SODOM or FORBIDDEN definitely don’t belong to the past in these pages!)
As usual, you’ll find a couple of interviews as well. This time, French tattoo artist and punk rock connoisseur Jean Se tells us about his work and how Nikki Sixx got him into playing bass among other things. Excellent, long in depth inteview that should make some people regret not being able to read French! American movie producer/director and writer Gred Lamberson is also interviewed. Your chance to learn more about the man and his work. Every Day Is Like Sunday is not only always great to read, it is also probably the only ‘zine in which you will find quotes from Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Sylvester Stallone, and Dolph Lundgren! You’ll even get a running/gym playlist!
This special issue can also be bought as a package with the book Allo Mike?! Toujours Dand Le Jazz? (120 pages of discussions -that used to be online as a blog site- about music, movies and life in general. Just look at the cover, and you’ll find out what Sam and Mike might talk about!) This is not only a great idea and a lot of fun to read, the book also opens with a David Lee Roth quote “Just because I’m bitter and cynical does not mean I’m not having a great time”,  and has a really cool lay-out! Get entertained!/Laurent C.
