Holiday time..... Be good


Jez

Recommended Posts

Time for the annual vacation, so won't be around for a couple of weeks. Think of me enjoying the delights of the Turkish sunshine, drinking beer whilst watching the World Cup and sitting on the beach with some nice :tits: , eating plenty of good food, and in return, I will think of you all slaving away at your desks and being miserable. Be good, listen to some banging tunes and remember....Be careful out there. XX

Just got back this evening and had a great time over there as usual. Beautiful weather (Jalfrezi Jez again), lots of Efes (dark of course), Tuborg and some fantastic fish dishes (way too much food in general if I'm honest). The World Cup was getting enjoyable, until it all got a little embarassing on Sunday watching a so called 'football team' who were meant to be representing the English I think it was - luckily there were no Germans around to stick the boot in, which let us off the hook a bit. But more importantly, I took great pleasure in taunting some Cricket loving Aussies who were staying in the hotel, after Englands mighty thrashing of the said country in the one dayers, so everything ended on a great high.

 

Anyways - good to be back and what have I missed?

Nothing I can think of that you missed. There's probably only been about 40 posts since you were here last. :lol: Anyway, welcome back mate. Glad you partied hard and enjoyed it. Now welcome back to the hell that is non-holiday time. ;) I'm seriously ready to make a booking, just to have something to look forward to.

Welcome back Jez,glad to hear you had a top time in the lovely sunshine while i freeze my nads off downunder,fuck i hate Winter,today in Melbourne was our coldest day for ten years.

Yep, I think we had out coldest day on record in Sydney. Mate, I think we need to start wrangling up the people of Australia and we'll get half of them in boats up the top end pulling, and the other half down the south end pushing... and let's try to get this mo'fukkin' country about 1000km higher north than it is. This winter nonsense is absolutely ridiculous. Either that, or everyone should pool their money together and buy me a house on a small island nation in the South Pacific where I can reside from start of June to end of September.

    • Trying to figure this one out made me really crabby! I just wanted to yell!       
    • idk guys, I think you can only polish a turd so much. It's definitely a great attempt and as whiplash1972 says, there have been a lot of such projects since, what, 2007ish? But IMO St. Anger has never been a bad album only because of the snare drum, or the lack of guitar solos, or the long songs. It's a bad album because it's an album full of bad songs. Metallica is supposed to be badass! This is not that! Listen to Invisible Kid or Purify and tell me what's even a little cool about those songs. The whole thing is just so whiny and cringey, definitely a product of its era which was the worst for metal as a genre.
    • Didn’t realise Def Leppard were a synthwave band, ‘cause these guys sound like ‘Hysteria’ era Def Leppard more than anything else I can think of. 😉 I was wondering the other day how many people miss out on good music because it is not under a label they desire. Very sad. 
    • Cold Blooded Bitch - Crown of Thorns
    • Don't forget there is a time different time zone from Australia to America.
    • Madison Talk of the Town Masquerade Roulette Might be missing.  
    • Nuff said. It's comments like these that are so helpful. Saved me 30 seconds clicking a YouTube like 😀
    • From Lions Pride Music: In the vibrant era of late ’80s and early ’90s, when Hard Rock ruled the charts and iconic bands were born in the lively streets of L.A., a lesser-known yet equally formidable force emerged from the heart of Germany – Wiesbaden to be precise. It was in this cultural backdrop that five talented musicians converged, forming a band that would redefine Melodic Hard Rock. Thus, SHEELA was born. Their creative hub was a basement rehearsal space in an old street house, which would later evolve into Markus Teske’s legendary BAZEMENT Studio. This studio would become the birthplace of several successful albums for bands like U.D.O., Vanden Plas, Dominci, The New Roses, and more. In 1995, SHEELA released their debut album, ”BURNED DOWN,” meticulously crafted and recorded at the BAZEMENT Studio. The album, showcasing a blend of powerful vocals, compelling guitar lines, and intricate arrangements, achieved instant success in Japan. Renowned magazines like BURRN and ROCK HARD recognized their potential, with the former awarding the album 87 points. ”BURNED DOWN” opens with the captivating ”LONG TIME,” a track featuring a memorable guitar line in the chorus. The album progresses through the anthemic ”READY” and the soulful ”HOLDIN’ ON,” leaving an indelible mark on the Hard Rock scene of the time. The success of the album paved the way for a tour and, later in 1995, personnel changes in the band.

The success of the album paved the way for a tour and, later in 1995, personnel changes in the band. Their second album, ”CHANGES,” dropped in 1997, again making waves in Japan before conquering European audiences during a tour with Canadian superstars SAGA. In the subsequent years, SHEELA shared stages with legendary acts like FATES WARNING, won the KARLSBERG CHALLENGE, and made a mark in the USA by performing at the STURGIS RALLY alongside bands like STYX and REO SPEEDWAGON. The journey continued with their third album, ”STRAIGHT HEARTED ONES” (2001), featuring guest musician Michael Sadler of SAGA. SHEELA toured extensively, opening for heavyweights like NAZARETH, MANFRED MAN, POISON, and even sharing the stage with Germany’s most successful Rockband – THE SCORPIONS. However, like any great rock story, SHEELA encountered lineup changes, and in 2002, Markus Teske bid farewell, leaving Christian Moser as the sole remaining member of the original lineup. Despite the changes, SHEELA’s impact endured, with discussions and online buzz surrounding their music even in 2018. Described as ”One of Germany’s secrets,” the timeless classics ”LONG TIME” and ”BURNED DOWN” continue to resonate with fans, prompting a resurgence in interest. In 2023, SHEELA signed a landmark deal with Lions Pride Music, a renowned record label based in Denmark. This collaboration brought forth a reissue of their debut album ”Burned Down,” remixed, remastered, and adorned with a new artwork. This worldwide release on CD and Digital platforms reintroduced the timeless magic of SHEELA to a global audience, reaffirming their status as pioneers of Melodic Hard Rock. SHEELA’s journey, marked by musical evolution, international recognition, and an enduring legacy, is a testament to the band’s commitment to creating timeless Hard Rock that transcends eras. As we look back at the album that started it all, ”BURNED DOWN,” SHEELA’s legacy lives on, leaving an indelible mark on the history of German rock. Sheela is: Wolfgang Ilsy Terne – Lead Vocals & Guitars Christian Moser – Guitars & Backing Vocals Markus Teske – Keyboards & Backing Vocals Tony Spagone – Bass & Backing Vocals Jojo Nimtz – Drums & Backing Vocals Special Guests: Patricia Loesch – Backing Vocals Martin Hofmann – Backing Vocals Robert Henrich – Harp Stefan Djokic – Slide Guitar Recorded in 1995 @ Bazement Studios, Wiesbaden, Germany 1995.
