To be perfectly honest, I never know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I have seen many reformations come and go and my opinion is its mostly bad. Generally, I believe a band has a moment, a ‘magic’ time if you like, where everything just clicks and is on fire.… Read the rest

Tax The Heat – Hard Driven Rock

Oh……That drum sound is to die for was all I could think when I first heard UK’s Tax The Heat. ‘Change Your Position’ is the latest 12 track beauty from this four piece and it rocks.

Marillion 2 Bands in One

I love Marillion. Their back catalog is huge and if you have just discovered them then you are in for a treat….but what Marillion. A lot of Marillion fans have split the band in two…..Marillion Fish era and current Marillion.

Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd

What is there to say about Pink Floyd. Their history is littered with stories of madness, nasty financial breakups, drug-induced psychedelia, legal actions and rock excess lifestyles of the gargantuan size.
