The Paranoid Squirrel ep 547

April 8th, 2017

A track from one of the great lost NYC albums of the mid to late 1970’s starts this week’s show off. I’m talking The Victims and “Real Wild Child” here. Then two, that’s right TWO tracks from The Chuck Norris Experiment come hurtling in. One taken from the “Ghost Highways” 8” ep and t’other from their “Chück Me!” album which is due out on the 5th May. The Connection released a covers album late last year a track from which I air which is swiftly followed by The Methadones and a song from their covers LP. Up next are three songs from three bands that now feature ex Sick Livers members; Deathtraps, TenPlusOne and The Broken Bones Gentlemen's Club. Piggyback Riders are are new band to me but three if their members aren’t; Sulo from The Crunch and Diamond Dogs, Idde Schultz also from The Crunch and Chris Spedding, from Chris Spedding. The band released yesterday an album of Americana called “Midnight at the Tenth of Always”. Of course, I play a track from it. Sharing Management with Piggyback Riders are Billy Momo, whose last album “Seven Rivers Wild” came out last year, are according to their bio “a Swedish 7-piece band whose musical roots run deep in the soil of the rural American South as well as cruising the big city streets, combining bluesy feel with gritty sounds and greasy grooves.” It’s a great album, so much so that I’ll be seeking out their other releases. Grande Royale’s have released a new track from their soon to be out album which of course gets an airing. Michael Monroe released yesterday a brand new song called “One Foot Outta The Grave” and it is seriously good and thanks to its writer, Rich Jones, who sent it to me earlier this week I most definitely play it. Now go buy it! I saw Royal Republic up at the Electric Ballroom last Saturday. They are a great live band, always have been, but now mainstream Rock fans are cottoning on. Just great all round entertainers who unexpectedly covered Iron Maiden’s “Fear of the Dark”, which I, being the audio historian that I am, recorded and share with you. White Reaper have just released an album called “The World's Best American Band”. Are they right or telling porkies....? Finishing things off this week are The Clamps with another tune from their “Bend, Shake, Swallow” LP.

First broadcast on Rock Radio UK at 11pm 31-03-17

My favourite Discharge track will kick this week’s show off, which will be swiftly be followed by a track from The Clamps new album “Blend, Shake, Swallow”. On the single front, I’ll be playing new ones from Tommy and the Rockets, The Dahlmanns and Blasting Fondas. If you sign up to Michael Monroe’s mailing list, you’ll be able to download an exclusive live track as a reward/incentive. Obviously, I did, with the fruits being played just before I air the Remu and the Hurriganes track that features Michael from the “Electric Play” album. Los Pepes have a third track from their up and coming “Let’s Go” CD aired with the debut single from Nicotine Pretty getting, the world’s second radio play. Nicotine Pretty, for those of you who are unaware feature one Ginge Knievel formerly of the Sick Livers. Up next it’s The Telephone Lovers before I regale my trip up the Underworld on Wednesday to see Enuff Z’Nuff with support from Venrez, who I play. That’s Venrez not Enuff Z’Nuff. Then I’m going to play another new track from the Biters new album The Future Ain’t What It Used to Be” which hints of the Rubinoos and to underline this I’m going to play the song in question but a live cover from the Hellacopters, who have just parted company with bassist Kenny. An acoustic song performed by Gary Lammin from the Bermondsey Joyriders recorded last Saturday at Raven Retail in Beckenham is the song that will take us up to the hour mark and the end of this week’s show.

The Paranoid Squirrel ep 538

Sadly The Hellacopters start this week’s show off as Robert “Strings” Dahlqvist passed away yesterday at the age of 40. The Damned, who I very rarely play on the show, are up next as I apologise for making a mistake on last week’s episode with regards to The Ruts. Last  Saturday I popped up to The Dev to see Flash House and finally catch Asomvel live, two great bands in a great venue = a great night!  Obviously I play a track from both. CJ Ramone, as well as playing with Richie Ramone in be Buenos Aires this evening, will be releasing a brand new album called “American Beauty” on the 17th March, a track from which I play. Steve Jones’ Fantasy 7 gets a look in as I’ve just purchased his autobiography. I also shelled out for the Hanoi Rocks “All Those Wasted Years” coffee table book as Amazon are currently knocking twenty quid off it. It comes with a 7” single with two unreleased tracks. One of which I air. Straight afterwards I play another track from Wyldlife’s stonkingly good new album “Out On Your Block”. Deniz Tek (Radio Birdman) and James Williamson (The Stooges) have teamed up for a 4 track “Acoustic K.O.” ep. Of course I play a sneaky song from it. Danko Jones are heading to Europe to promote their brand new album “Wild Cat” and proceeding both is a single. Grande Royale have just signed to erm.... Sign Records who will release their album “Breaking News” in August. A track has just been unleashed so we know what to expect. Following on from said Danko Jones single are Horisont and a track from their new album “About Time”.  A band who I shamefully had never heard of until the middle of last week was Psychotic Youth. After getting hold of their 30 track compilation album “Power Pop to Die For” CD I was compelled to buy their brand new album “The Voice of Summer” and play you lot a track from it. Closing this week’s show are The Godfathers and a track from their new album “A Big Bad Beautiful Noise” which comes out next Friday.

Cor blimey Guv’nor, have I a packed show for you this week or what? The MC5 and The Damned kick things off with former Damned members Rat Scabies and Paul Gray re-uniting on the new Professor and the Madman single, then as I’m on the cusp of finishing Roland Link’s “Love in Vain – The Story of The Ruts and Ruts DC” book I naturally play some of the subject matter which is swiftly followed with some Gary Moore that was earmarked for The Ruts. Back to new music in the shape and form of QSP, the Q stand for Quatro, as in Suzi, S as in Andy Scott from the Sweet and P as in Don Powell from Slade. A quick trip to Pledge Music has me informing you that Ryan Hamilton and the Traitors album “The Devil’s In The Detail” seems to have fallen foul of the man. However Ryan has a cunning plan. TSOL, Tattooed Millionaires, Fuckdust4 and The Ringo Jets all have new products for us to enjoy in the form of an album, a single, 3 track single and an album before I go retrospective thanks to Exeter Ray and some Guy Davis. Getting back on track with new music and it’s The Royal Cream and something from their new album “Big Words, Small Talk”, then Heavy Tiger with their Nicke Andersson produced single before I head over to Seattle for some Piston Ready before setting sail to Tallin for a track from the new Dead Furies album “No Talkin’ All Action”. I go all previous with a Watts track that makes me want to pretend to be Joe Strummer (early Clash) playing at being David Bowie. This week’s final song comes from quite possibly the greatest album that’s going to be released this year. A bold statement I know. However, once you listen to Wyldlife’s “Out on your Block” LP, I think you’ll willingly agree.
