Glam Junkies sleazefest tour diary Part 2

Recommended Posts

Following 4 shows in finland with HArdcore Superstar it was off to Sweden.

 

First stop was Malmo, via Stockholm.

 

Here I saw Bulletrain. This was a lesson for bands doing favours for others. Apparently the guys from Bulletrian did this gig as a return favour for someone else. Turned out to be some sort of youth arts centre thing, at 7pm on a wednesday with no alcohol... and barely any people. They played with 3 other bands and were obviously a class or more above the others. I'd say apart from the bands watching each other you'd be lucky if there were 5 other people. Great guys though, and they came out to a bar for a couple of beers after the show. One of the supprts bands at this show was a sleaze band called Sex Shock. They were okay, but seemed totally disinterested in the small audience,..... eating corn chips between songs.

 

From Malmo it was onto Skovde to catch 'Lusserock' which included Babylon Bombs and Midnight Cowboys. Knowing i was coming to this one Babylon Bombs brought me backstage before the show to meet them. They out on a brilliant show, as did Midnight Cowboys. Following the gig I joined them all at some local underground rock club which was pretty cool. Kicked on there until closing time.

 

Next day was onto Gothenburg for Crashdiet and Backyard Babies at Sticky Fingers. One of the best gigs of the tour so far. Place was pretty packed, and they were a "polite" packed audience if it's possible. You could stand there in a packed audience without being knocked from pillar to post like in finland.

 

Crashdiet only had a short set but it was brillaint, almsot surreal to see them play. The backyard babies played for probably a bit over an hour. These guys sure deliver some dirty rock n roll! After the gig crashdiet came out and i got to meet them, get a photo and some stuff signed. They were great. Backyard Babies didn't come out tho which was disappointing.

 

Massive train trip followed the next day from Gothenburn to Sundsvall ... 500-600km at a guess. Here was the most adventourous gig so far. Basically had to walk up a hill in the darkness with a hand drawn map to get to the hostel and then back into town for the gig. The gig turned out to be in some student house, almost like what i imagine a sorrority house to be like. It was their closing party for the year called'empty the bar', so basically there were a couple fo hundred totally plastered uni students sinking as much cheap piss as they could. Initially they were not going to let me in cos i wasn't a student, but after speaking to about 4 people and the finally the manager they got me on a guest list. It was 3 floors of bars, dance floors, lounges and and band room. The band room ranged from maybe 50-60 people to about 10 people in the end. There were 3 bands on in there, one local band called Road Kill, another 'un named' band that were like Airbourne, and then sleaze merchants Lipstixx n Bulletz. I'd contacte them before and let them know i was coming to this one, but i think they were really surprised that i actually made it.

 

That was the end of the 2nd leg, and I've now returned back to stockholm for the final hurrah. Chains and then 2 x Gemini 5 gigs... all at Pub Anchor Stockholm.

 

Will see if i can get some photos posted. If not, it'll have to wait til i get home.

Nice read! Enjoy your time in Stockholm and be sure to go to the Harry B James on Friday for the "Crazy Nights"-party! This is as good as it gets for Sleaze/AOR-lovers...

 

Have a great one!

 

is this on every Friday or only some Fridays?

have seen some gigs advertised at this place but nothing whilst i am here.

 

Did a little more cd shopping today. Nothing out of the ordinary, just some new stuff.... picked up the new Mama Kin disc, and the first 2 Bullet discs. Might give the 2nd hand stores a try again in the next day or 2. I think i'm up to about 40 cds so far.

The party is on every Friday! Here's the link for you:

Harry B James

 

I've only been there once during my vacation past summer, but it sure as hell was a great party and I'm planning to get back there next year. It's a very nice place to hang out!

There seems to be some live-music almost every night, even when it's not advertised. So, if you've got no concert to attend on Friday, I'd recommend a visit. Girls, girls, girls ;)

 

Did you get to speak to the Midnight Cowboy guys? Are they already planning their debut (full-length)-album?

    • So I'm currently on my summer hols which gives me time to catch up on alot of music I have missed or haven't listened to in a while. Anyway yesterday I was listening to Broadside - Hotel Bleu ( great album btw). Now I have Spotify set to play similar artists once the album finishes and Honey Revenge were one of those artists. Liked the song I heard so checked out their debut album Retrovision and it's a cracker. The duo are Devin Papadol- vocals and Devin Lloyd - guitar and together have produced and album full of perfect pop rock. Highly Recommended and well worth a listen.   Full album ...  
    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.  
    • It's average for them IMO. Good to hear that singer again though. She was on a lot of their songs a few years ago when they were at their best.
