    Skarlet - S/T

    In the past anywhere from 7 days to 4 weeks. Nowadays as Australia Post has gone to shit it takes a week to get anything within Australia, so I 'd be more at the 3-4week end of the spectrum.

    Vain - Rolling with the Punches 2016

    Had a listen to this one. Awesome album. Typical Vain sound, but IMO (based on a couple of listens) better than last album.

    I think we're in the same boat but I wear it as a badge of honor ! Why? And Terry, I will never understand folk of your ilk, but it would make more sense to me at least if you were turning your back on chart topping artists... say Nickleback or something. I still wouldn't understand it because I am 1000% of the belief that if you like something, you like it. I like Bon Jovi and I like Hotboy or Silly Fools. Some of the bands I like probably had 50 albums pressed overall, and others sold tens of millions worldwide. I just honestly couldn't care less, possibly, at all, about anything other than if the music is good or not. But I digress. I just find it odd that the bands you're turning your back on probably sell 55 albums per year, compared to the ones you seek, who sell 5 albums per year. It's not like these Frontiers artists are living on mansions on the beach, set up for life and never need to work again. 99% of the bands on this site need as much support as those stragglers on your list. And, in my humble opinion, they kind of make music sound a bit better too. Like I said, though, mate... whatever makes you happy. I'm glad you at least treat your ears every now and then to music you actually like for no other reason than it is good music, in your opinion. I think in my case it's because: - glam / sleaze scene has died down a bit over the last couple of years - reviews are mainly more down the melodic rock path from what I interpret from them

    GNR Last Night

    Looking forward too seeing them in adelaide this weekend. Reviews have been pretty positive from all shows so far from what ive read. I bought the cheap seats too... so interesting to see how shit they are.

    Stephen Pearcy - I Can't Take It (from 'Smash')

    Haven't heard it yet, but surprised at the rating here as everything else I'd heard about the album was very positive

    I do not own, nor have I listened to any of those cds that made anyone's Top 5 list. Maybe I should be Banisheed! or simply Baneed.

    Skarlet - S/T

    Agree with Geoff here.... Great sound, great production, great style... just lacking a bit with the songs. I found it to be very same-same from start to finish, with nothing sticking out, not enough variation. From memory, not even a ballad on the album. In saying that though, still a great album. Just think with a bit of work on the songs it could become even better.
  8. For anyone who can make it to Adelaide over the Easter weekend: After an almost 5 year hiatus Adelaide’s own evening dedicated to glam, trash and rock n roll returns. “The Sleaze Ball 2017” presents a series of local, interstate and international artists in a unique blend of acoustic and electric performances. The night will be highlighted by an exclusive "one night only" acoustic performance from members of Swedish sleaze sensations Crashdiet. In their first performance outside of Sweden in over 2 years these 2 founding members - Peter London and Eric Young - will deliver a repertoire of tracks including many which saw them credited with launching the 'Swedish Sleaze' genre. Their 2005 album 'Rest In Sleaze' became an instant underground classic and saw Crashdiet become the first glam metal act to be signed to a major label (Universal Music) in over a decade. The night will also feature the triumphant return of local glam rockers 'Laced In Lust'. Fresh off their European tour, which included a major support slot for rock legends Status Quo, Laced In Lust will be performing exclusively as a 4-piece acoustic outfit for the first time. Hailing from Melbourne, Kill Shott will be bringing their sleaze-infused brand of high intensity rock n roll to Adelaide. Since selling out of their debut release.... twice, the guys have built a solid reputation, renowned for their explosive live shows. Finally, last but not least, The Sleaze Ball 2017 will see a reunion rivalling the Guns n Roses "Not In This Lifetime" tour. Yes, for the first time in over 3 years local boys-gone-bad Generation Swine will hit the stage with a full electric set with a performance they said would never happen. FOUR of the genres finest! THREE exclusive performances! TWO of Sweden's favourite sons! Catch it all for... ONE NIGHT ONLY! THE SLEAZE BALL 2017! Doors open: 7pm Laced In Lust: 8.15pm - 8.45pm Peter London & Eric Young of Crashdiet: 9.00pm - 9.45pm Generation Swine: 10.00pm - 10.45pm Kill Shott: 11.00pm - 12.00am

    Temple Balls - Traded Dreams

    got a couple of their cd singles which are pretty cool tunes, and have the 7" on preorder.
  10. Four CDs would cost $60? Where you buying from? I assume you mean in America, for Americans, in USD? Or probably Europeans too? But I'm sure you'd know, living in Indonesia, as much as we know in Australia, that that is a very inaccurate amount. Four new CDs might cost around the au$80, before postage. These days, that amounts to fuck knows what - probably at least au$20 for four CDs. So your four CDs per month are now costing at very least au$100. It's just stupid amounts of money that just doesn't need to be spent in the digital age when you have kids to consider. try grooves inc. http://www.grooves.land/ just did a quick search and most stuff from peoples 'best of 2016' lists (nordic union, defiants, reckless love, first signal, bulletrain, etc....) are available on there for about $US14. Spend $50 and shipping is free. And if you cant find a 10% discount voucher for their site... you aint looking or you just need to wait a week or 2. So yeah... new releases are available for about $AUD17 shipped mate.

    Bulletrain - What You Fear The Most

    I'm with Geoff here.... great album. Better than the previous disc in my opinion In my top 10 of 2016.
  12. What if you woke up one morning and the internet had disappeared!?!?!!? Then you're all fooked.
  13. glam_junkie

    Where's everyone buying from these days?

    get all my new stuff from: importcds.com (very good shipping rates to australia) grooves land (free worldwide shipping, but their prices usually arent as good as importcds)
