“Skam are a classic power-trio – ballsy, big, loud – but that doesn’t mean they have to be mindless. Third album, The Amazing Memoirs of Geoffrey Goddard, is a bit more ambitious than the usual new British rock.
Mysterious Australian prog rock legends have released a sequel to a song they originally recorded way back in 1987! Even in the sometimes strange and nebulous world of Progressive Rock, I am certain this has never been done. The original song from 1987 was called Rocking Horse.… Read the rest

Some people call it a vibe and some people call it a groove. We call it boogie soul. It’s the sound of HANDSOME JACK on their new album “Do What Comes Naturally”.
