Another cool EP release from Demondoll well worth checking out. It's a 7 track EP with 6 songs and an interview with the band on the end. Not as good as Slam Alley or Debbie Ray, but pretty cool for fans of obscure early 90's glam. This one had me hook on image alone. Looking forward to more spins.

I would like to order a couple of cd's from demondoll but my computer keeps messin' up when I go to the web site. Does anyone else have this problem. Ive tried another computer and the same thing happens. Honestly for $8.99 for most cds their probably just good cdrs.

Nah can't find it...thought I saw either a seller or store called Demondoll or something and remember wondering if they sold on E-Bay as well. Sorry can't help you there.

Hmm, I didn't care for this one. Sounded like a bad version of Pretty Boy Floyd to me. I'm gonna have to stick with Debbie Ray and Slam Alley for now.

They are generally good CDRs... but the higher priced ones are silver-pressed. Either way, they're all good quality.

 

Yeah Chris, wasn't sure you'd be into this one at all. I prefer the other two easily also.

Cool band. Always liked TALKS CHEAP with Lesli.

 

Which Demondoll CDs are Silver-Pressed?... Are you sure you don't mean 'Diamond Silver Bottom' CD-R? Was going to order SWINGIN' THING 'The Black List' awhile back but found out it has the barcode of CD POSTER SHOP which does not Replicate (Silver-Press) CDs. They only Duplicate using Silver Bottom CD-Rs according to their site.

 

So needless to say, I didn't order.

Mate, all I know is that my c*nt of a car stereo does not play CDRs anymore (hence why I've had barely any time to listen to the CDs I bought from Demondoll - in fact, still not heard High Wire and Sexcess in their entirety yet) but the Alleycat Scratch and Swingin' Thing CDs played on that c*nt of a stereo just fine.

 

If they're not silver pressed they're as close as you could humanly get, and they fooled my c*nt of a CD player.

Exactly. My stereos will not play CD-Rs. :gun3:

Yeah, it's definitely a concern. It never used to be a problem for me but now all I know is that I have 3 stereos - 1 in the car and 2 at home - and I cannot play CDRs on two of them. The car stereo and the otherwise excellent Sony stereo upstairs do not play them. Only a crappy little TDK one I have downstairs plays them. It's definitely not cool.

Well I'll be, this finally got out, FYI this disc is made from the cassette tapes that I gave to Jim Paulson, after burning them of course, who loaned them to Les for this release. On the tapes there were a number of versions of these songs and some really pathetic live stuff.

 

And yes for you 7 ways of Kevin Bacon kind of collectors, Paulson and Saunders from Tramp Alley are in this band and of course Paulson (he is pictured upper right) was in New American Shame to name a few. :)

 

Culture Shock is probably the best cut, something about the line "got a pink key open's up a green lock!" that still cracks me up.

    • Lily Lowe - Scream      After listening to her debut album “Löwe“, it’s evident why LILY LOWE is being coined Norway’s new lady of rock. This young singer and songwriter – real name Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – has the voice, the looks and essentially, talent, to become a star. The mastermind behind “Löwe” is Norway’s rock institution Trond Holter (Wig Wam, Dream Police, Jorn Lande etc.) who not only co-wrote the songs, but also is the musical director & producer, and play all over the record. In fact, most of Wig Wam members play on the album, alongside other Scandinavian renowned musicians. But don’t lose the focus here: LILY LOWE is the star on the album: with her intense delivery of brazen vocals is sure to reign right alongside the most prominent rock artists to date. An she writes very good songs as well. LILY LOWE was a contestant for Norway’s Eurovision this year with the great glammy hard rock tune ‘Bad Baby’ (included into the album) but if you think her music is bland you better listen to “Löwe” carefully. Having a song titled ‘Handsome Whore’ in the track list give you an idea this album isn’t ‘Eurovision saccharine’ at all. This rocks, hard. Holter has provided a bright, crisp, rocking production for Lowe’s voice and he drops some killer riffs to boot, like on opener ‘Scream’ which while wrapped by a modern production it’s very classic rock. The kind of riff that worked in the Seventies, the Eighties, and today. ‘Bad Baby’ is the hit, catchy, infectious, with Lily showcasing why she grew up listening Guns N’ Roses and Motley crue. The glam metal ‘Daddy’s Type’ is probably the song that most reveals Holter’s involvement, because this could easily could be into any Wig Wam album. It’s almost like you get a little shocked when it’s not Åge Sten Nilsen who sings. On “Run” Lily & Holter try something different, more modern and adding some electronics to the mix, but don’t be fooled, this album rocks. “Löwe” is a catchy driving good debut album by this talented young woman, helped by a cast of top Scandinavian musicians. LILY LOWE is an artist we will certainly hear more about in years to come.   01 – Scream 02 – Crying Game 03 – Bad Baby 04 – 911 05 – Caught in a Dream 06 – Daddy’s Type 07 – Handsome Whore 08 – So Long 09 – Run Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – vocals, drums Trond Holter – guitars, keyboards, backing vocals Bernt Jansen – bass, backing vocals Magnus Galguften – drums Tom Jensen – keyboards
    • Tesla have released a new track titled "Time to Rock"  (Since this isn't really a video per se, I decided to drop it here in the hard rock forum)      
    • 1. Cinderella - Heartbreak Station   2.  Poison - Flesh & Blood   3.  Slaughter - Stick It To Ya 4.  Warrant - Cherry Pie 5.  Ratt - Detonator 6.  Winger - In The Heart Of The Young 7.  Jon Bon Jovi - Blaze Of Glory 8.  Trixter - Trixter 9.  The Black Crowes - Shake Your Money Maker 10. Pretty Maids - Jump The Gun
    • Nazareth - Surviving the Law Solid disc featuring Carl Sentance's second go round on vocals; that lead off track "Strange Days" is particularly good!  
    • listened a couple times, a few ok tunes but nothing I feel the need to listen to ever again. shame.
    • Jokes on you; I don't even have an attic. 
    • Heard this today and looks like being underwhelmed is nothing different. Musically it's still top notch, but there's quite a few pretty weak songs on this one. Way below par for HEAT. 'Hollywood' and 'Wings Of An Aeroplane' were the two stand outs for me, and a couple of others were okay, but for the most part, really quite underwhelming.  I like Kenny's vocals and there's no really prevalent issue other than the fact that some of the songs are just poorly written. Sad, yet simple.
