Z Records - Feb. 11, 2009


Recommended Posts

As Z Rock 09 looms ever closer I thought it wise to bring you all up to date. So far we are on schedule with everything but obviously we have concerns re the economic situation here in the UK. The next 6 weeks are very important, we know that we have to sell 100 tickets for the 30th and 50 for the 29th to keep everything inline. Whilst we know many of you maybe finding times a little harder than back in 2008, we hope that those wishing to attend purchase their tickets before March 22nd. It helps us if you buy direct by either using the paypal address zrockagency@zrecords.net or buying form the sites below. If you prefer to send a cheque please email or call and we will send the details to you.


Z Rock 09 is our strongest line up to date and our 10th anniversary show, who would believe that it's 10 years since out first outing. Plans are already being made for 2010 but that all depends on the outcome of May show.


Just a reminder of the excellent line up that we have.....


MAY 29TH: [tickets £30.00]




further acts to be announce shortly


MAY 30TH: [Tickets £47.50]


JOHN WAITE [the voice of Bad English, the Babys and solo]

BIG NOIZE [feat Joe Lyn Turner ]







Venue : JB's Dudley


Your support is greatly appreciated especially during the current climate, lets make Z Rock 09 something to look forward to this year :o) Those of you living abroad will soon receive a letter which you need to collect your tickets at the venue, we are about to start mailing all other purchased tickets next week.


Best Regards

Oh dear oh dear oh dear. Seems like 'Mr' Alger is up to his usual tricks again. Not happy reading over at Melrock.com and Ted Poley is not a happy chappie at all, after the Zrock festival debacle last weekend. Seems like it was very poorly attended and shall we say had lots of 'Organisational' issues. Where have we heard that before. One of the main reasons why I wouldn't attend any show that is put on by Mr Alger & Zrock. Me thinks that the 2010 show may not happen, just as a guess! :whistle:

I guess the bands are so desperate for exposure/venues that they will repeatedly deal with someone who has an established history of fucking over everyone he comes in contact with.


Fool me once...

I can see that totally in this day and age wanting exposure and work etc, but surely, after all the well documented shit that has gone on with this freak, why would you take a chance at all. We're not talking small fry bands here - John Waite, Ted Poley, Von Groove, Wig Wam. All of them surely could get better gigs than this and get treated with the due respect they deserve.

    • Hopefully mine arrives tomorrow  
    • Yeah even though I have this already I picked up the deluxe for the bonus tracks...all 11 of em  
    • Rest In Peace Love the Lionsheart stuff..the debut is classic
    • From FaceBook   Midnite City     · IT'S OFFICIAL! We have now started work on what will become our fourth album which will be coming your way in 2023. The songs are written and the work has begun. As with our previous albums, it's never a quick process. We have a long journey ahead of us, but the work starts now! Look out for lots of studio updates
    • This is a good one. The Deluxe Edition from MelodicRock Classics looks interesting. See below:  
    • New songs. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Perfect Plan's third studio album, "Brace For Impact". Over the course of their first two albums, "All Rise" and "Time For A Miracle", the Swedes have quickly established themselves as a new gold standard in not only the Scandinavian melodic rock genre, but the melodic rock genre as a whole. "Brace For Impact" does nothing to slow that momentum and fans should do exactly as the album's title says in preparation for their latest opus.  Produced by the band, songwriting started in August 2021 for "Brace For Impact" and was wrapped up by the end of the year. The band then spent January of this year working on arrangements and pre-production work before starting the process of recording in the first week of February. Asked about the musical direction of the album, vocalist Kent Hilli says, "Well, hard question...we didn’t think too much about that when we started writing as we want everything to come naturally to us. All we focused on and wanted to do was to write really great melodic rock songs with great riffs and melodies. But I think we have more ”rockers” on this album than before. I would say that it's melodic rock in general, but maybe slightly harder than our previous albums. But much like our second album, ”Time For A Miracle” we have a great mixture between hard rock, melodic rock, and AOR in there...and some songs even have some elements of progressive rock and some bluesier elements mixed in also. And we have just one ballad on this album. Our goal when writing an album is that it should feel like playing songs on a jukebox and I think we have succeeded with that on this album. Everything sounds like PERFECT PLAN 3.0, really! I think we have definitely pushed everything up a notch from songwriting and lyrics to arrangements and overall performance and sound. With the addition of the great Tobias Lindell who does the mixing…everything sounds really big and majestic I think!" Sometimes the stars align and create a perfect balance of talent within a group. A band like Perfect Plan is the “perfect" (pun intended) example of that: a superb singer, a well-oiled band of experienced players, and a great songwriting talent with a knack for unforgettable melodies and driving rhythms. Add to that the right single released at the right time and Perfect Plan’s emergence as immediate rising stars on the melodic rock scene is no surprise. The song that “built” their reputation is of course the awesome “In and Out of Love,” the first single/video that kicked off the promotion of the band’s 2018 debut album “All Rise,” released on Frontiers in April of that year. The band followed their debut album with the sophomore release "Time For A Miracle" in 2020. Hyperbole aside, it was a major step forward across the board. Opting for a slightly heavier and more “in your face” sound, Perfect Plan matured and created an outstanding balance of melodies and energy, with the obvious references to the sound of the classics (think Foreigner, Survivor, The Storm, Giant, etc.) and Scandinavian AOR with a recognizable and personal feel. So, after a stunning debut and sticking the landing with their second album, what does Perfect Plan have up their sleeve for an encore? Well, all we can say is..."Brace For Impact”! Tracklisting: 1. Surrender 2. If Love Walks In 3. Can’t Let You Win 4. Gotta Slow Me Down 5. Stop The Bleed 6. My Angel 7. Devil’s Got The Blues 8. Bring Me A Doctor 9. Still Undefeated 10. Emelie 11. Walk Through Fire Line-Up: Kent Hilli - Lead vocals Rolf Nordström - Guitar Leif Ehlin - Keyboards Fredrik Forsberg - Drums Mats Byström - Bass   https://perfectplan.se facebook
