Not Forgotten: Fuzzy Duck

Sometimes curiosity can get the best of most of us. From the gloriously weird cover art, to the band’s name being a spoonerism, there’s enough here to indicate that there’s something just a bit offbeat going on with Fuzzy Duck’s debut album. Add to this the fact that a bit of research reveals that it …

Man, do you remember back in 2005 when Wolfmother dropped their debut album? That glorious mix of proggy, organ-drenched, chunky guitar goodness that reminded us that Uriah Heep were pretty cool(at least Ken Hensley’s bits) and that Robert Plant would’ve sounded pretty damn cool fronting Black Sabbath. Yeah, I remember that self-titled well. There was …

In their 47 year career UFO have carved out a reputation for being one of the most stage-hardened bands, and while their commercial peak was the late ’70s / early ’80s, their last three studio albums have all charted here in the UK, and they remain a substantial live draw with a loyal and dedicated …

Kentucky based hard rockers Black Stone Cherry have announced their signing to new label, The Mascot Label Group and yesterday (7th Oct) the band entered the studio to start recording their new album. Their previous album, Magic Mountain, released last year hit the top 5 in the UK charts upon release. However with this new forthcoming album, …

There are now just days to go until Bloodstock 2015 (6th-9th August), which takes place NEXT WEEKEND at Derbyshire’s Catton Park. Last week, the final bands were announced- filling the last space on the Ronnie James Dio main stage are Savage Messiah, while a whole host of competition winners, such as Bristol’s Mortishead and Nottingham’s …

Halestorm are a band you have to see live to truly understand what they are about. The Grammy award winning hard rockers have been through the whole sweaty, dingy club show rite of passage that nearly every band has to take before they can hit the big leagues and it shows in their performances. At …

It’s easy to forget just how consistently impressive Alice Cooper was between 1971 and 1975, both as a group and then morphing into Vincent Furnier’s solo career. From Love It to Death through to Welcome to My Nightmare, Alice Cooper’s output stands comparison to the likes of both Elton John and David Bowie, two other …

Frankie Miller is a name that few are familiar with beyond a freak hit single with a cover of a song he wasn’t that fussed with, and an undeserved reputation of being a second-tier white-soul vocalist. Having cut his teeth in short lived bands The Stoics and Jude, two acts that were both signed to …

It is the 70s. Weeks last three days, amplifiers are stacked, hair is long and unkempt, pants are loon and sleeves are gatefold. In the pop charts, glam-rock and hollow pop held sway, while the album charts were dominated by progressive and hard rock bands, whose live reputations were at least as important as their …

Jethro Tull are a band who are special to me. They’re the first band I saw live, the first band that I felt a genuine connection to, the first band where my adolescent mind went ‘Yep, this is for me’. Given that my peers at the time were obsessing over Nirvana or the contemporary hiphop …
