Anybody heard of this new Australian band? Me neither. But I just got a promo of this Australian brother/sister rock act's five-song "BLOOD, SWEAT AND BEERS" EP to review for Detritus... giving it a first spin and it sounds pretty rockin' to me... no-frills, hard-ass pub rock with a big ole AC/DC influence... kinda like Airbourne if they had a chick singer. Check'em out and feel free to comment....

Yeah... actually not bad at all. Straight ahead rock n roll... I was a little worried when you compared them to AC/DC and Airborne. :whistle:

Their MySpace lists their "influences" as "Motorhead, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy" amongst others... so I figure the AC/DC comparison is/was valid...

 

They also quote a reviewer who sez "Imagine AC/DC with the vocals of Tina Turner while being penetrated from behind," which is quite possibly the coolest comparison I've ever read :rofl2:

O.K. Keef!!

 

I got to the club about 9:00. I looked up the other bands playing and I didn't care for them. I fiqured I'll go late and miss 'em. I got to the club and it was pretty empty. About 25 people to be exact (Including Bar maids, band members, bar tender, and the woman who makes my kick ass fries). I thought to myself "was the show cancelled?". I noticed the merch table for Bug girl right away and walked over to it.. I quickly shelled out some cabbage for two c.d.'s and a t-shirt. I started talkin' to the drummer Clinno. He then introduced me to the lovely Amber and their tour manager Craig. We hit it off great and asked if I wanted to bowl with them. While we started to bowl, the band ABSTRACT ARTIMUS got up to play. Kind of a cross between Nirvana with Misfits style of vocals. After my shitty bowling game (I SUCK!!), The band DAIKAIJU Started to play. DAIKAIJU is the same band as ABSTRACT ARTIMUS, but everyone (Accept the drummer) switches instuments. DAIKAIJU'S music was Heavy Rock with heavy Surf Rock overtones. The band members all came out with Kabuki masks as well. I actually thought they were quite entertaining..

Time for Bug Girl to hit the stage. AC/DCish style riffing, they ripped into ROCK 'N' ROLL HELL, DEATH ON WHEELS, V8 MOTOR, MOTOR CITY LOVER, DIRT IN THE SKIRT and a few others. Last song they played was dedicated to me and was called WAR & FIRE.

I stuck around to help the band load out and gave my goodbyes. They actually wanted me to play another game of bowling, but I had to go home. Like usual, I regret not taking my camera. I will see them again when they come around in june or july. I don't think they'll be playin' the ASBURY LANES ever again..

Way cool, Dom! Bowlin' with the Stars! :rofl:

 

Glad to hear it was a good show. So is Amber hot? It's kinda hard to tell from the pix I've seen thus far. She looks kinda skanky, but in a good way, if you know what I mean. Like she could drink you under the table and then show you a hell of a good time when you woke up. :lol:

    • Same for me.  I thought the first single was decent but nothing else grabbed me. 
    • New lyric video for 'Save Us From Ourselves'.    
    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New video for 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-
