November 4th, 2017


The Paranoid Squirrel Rock Show, this week, should’ve been a much more relaxed affair, as hadn’t spent the day bombing up and down various Motorways, then catching up with School chums, keeping one eye on the time. Unfortunately, I cocked up twice; No 1 cock up was that I didn’t set the balance right, so if you listened in live things got loud and then things got not so loud. It’s all sorted now for the stream and Download. Cock up No 2 was that I said that Johnny Moped were playing live at the 100 Club on the 8th March, he’s not. It’s the 9th. Luckily an astute listener sent me a text telling me of my faux pas so I was able to correct myself later on in the programme.  However, I still managed to play tracks from these artists on my Rock Radio UK slot which aired last night at 11pm (GMT);
Adam West,
Channel 43,
Jake Starr and The Delicious Fullness,
Johnny Moped,
The Professionals,
Robin Black,
Maximum RNR,
The Hip Priests,
Royal Republic,
Michael Monroe
and Husker Du.

The Paranoid Squirrel ep 543

March 11th, 2017


First Broadcast on 10-03-17 at 11pm on Rock Radio UK
Repeated on 12-03-17 at 2am.

Welcome to the first Paranoid Squirrel Rock Show on Rock Radio UK. Getting the hour underway are Zombie Motors Wrecking Crew from Australia and a track from their “Supersonic Rock ‘n’ Roll” album. The Arrows are up next with ‘that’ song who are swiftly followed by Ryan Hamilton and the Traitors and an acoustic track that was recorded at the Old Church St Pancras on the 3rd March. A new band, although the members might be familiar, are Neon Animal, whose game plan is to bring Rock ‘n’ Roll back from the dead, which coincidently is the title of their debut single which of course I play. Tom Baker and the Snakes, who don’t feature the forth Doctor or any snakes, have just released a new album called “Lookout Tower” and very good it is to, a track from which you will hear. The Fiascos are all set to release their second single “Kill the Radio” and have already let us see the video to it. Being as this is Radio the mp3 gets an airing. In a case of “Clashing Gigs” The Fiascos along with Nicotine Pretty, Los Pepes, The Sly Persuaders, Ming City Rockers and a host of others are playing the Summer Weird Sin Festival in Brixton the same day as Johnny Moped hits The Lexington. That’ll be 19th August. To embellish the situation, I play some Sick Livers as I haven’t any Nicotine Pretty and some “Cycledelic” era Johnny Moped. Straight after the Moped’s Stiff Little Fingers come crashing in and then it’s a new track from Dirtbag Republic’s forthcoming album “Downtown Eastside”. Into the home straight and in light that the Telephone Lovers have been booked to play this year’s SXSW Festival and it seems have a new album already recorded following up on their self-titled debut which is now available on Liquorice Red and White vinyl, I play a track from said album by them. On the recommendation of Head Glunk Dom Daley I checked out the new album by Jeff Dahl “Made in Hawaii”. To date Mister Daley has not let me down and with Jeff’s new release that trend seems set to continue as hopefully you will agree. The Ramones, with the last song on their last studio album, which was the last song written for them by their former bassist Dee Dee is the penultimate track but it is The Hydromatics and the Tony Slug, Nicke Anderssen, Thumping Theo, Scott Morgan line-up that have the dubious honour of closing this week’s show.


The Paranoid Squirrel ep 540

February 18th, 2017


I start this week’s episode with the brand new single from the Biters’ new album “The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be” played at the right speed. Vinyl is the order of the day next with offerings from The Nomads and Sator split single which arrived on my doorstep courtesy of Ghost Highway Records and then a NY Loose 7” thanks to Andy from the Fear & Loathing Fanzine. I then get into releases and or projects that went live on the 14th making me worry whilst I was wining and dining Mrs A. I’d miss out. I didn’t. First I ordered TV Eyes “1977-1978” vinyl LP from Easy Action Records, but as I haven’t any TV Eye to play, yet, I air Radio Birdman covering the Stooges. Can you guess which song....? Then the Role Models third album in as many years was Pledged for on...erm.. Pledge Music with an early version of “Cherry Dear” played to accompany “Dance Moves” appearance. Finally I was able to mop my fevered brow as I managed to blag the Spasm Gang Member re-issue of The Hip Priests “Full Tilt Bullshit” LP and the original unreleased Gary X-Ray version. Up next is Hanoi Rocks and some Johnny Thunders, just because, well just because. More new music comes from The Scaramanga Six, The Yorkshire Rats, Cyanide Pills, “DEMONS” (Yes, get in), Circus of Power ft. Jyrki69 and the fantastically titled King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.


The Paranoid Squirrel ep 531

December 17th, 2016


France’s Soggy get this week’s show underway with a track from their one and only album which has finally been released on CD. The band look and sound like a hybrid of The Stooges and the MC5 with frontman Beb sporting Rob Tyner’s hair and Iggy Pop’s stripped the waist torso, although I can also hear elements of Motörhead and Venom and in six degrees of separation The Shrine follow on who play the sort of music that would suit a fan of Black Flag, Black Sabbath and Fu Manchu. Thanks to Tom from the The Phobics I’ve been turned onto the Stalkers. A bit late in the day as the band broke up in July but still, it’s the thought that counts. As a way of saying “Cheers” I play a track from Tom’s pre Phobic band Helltrain but its Johnny Moped with a 6Music session track that actually proceeds it. The DeRellas work their way into the show with a track from their recently released “Freakshow” mini LP. Former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd is making his way over to the UK next year with an as yet unnamed band, although John Proctor from the Dirty Strangers is playing bass to whit I play a song from the Sticksman’s solo album. Another new band, well to me, are The Richmond Sluts. Think of a mixture of The Stooges and Primal Scream with the occasional slide guitar putting a spanner in the works and that’s what the band’s latest album “60 Cycles of Love” sounds like to me. Of course I play a track so you can judge for yourself.  Todd Youth, formerly of The Michael Monroe Band, Danzig, D-Generation and my personal favourite The Chelsea Smiles has resurfaced in Bloodclot along with John Joseph from the Cro-Mags, Nick Oliveri and Joey Castillo formerly of Queens of the Stone Age. The band’s debut album is due out next year, the title track of which I air. It looks like three of The Frantic Four (Status Quo) are about to step into the recording studio with the possibility of a tour to promote said album. Of course I’m talking “Lancaster, Coghlan and Parfitt”. No Ice-Cream mogul..... Therefore “Caroline” gets played, but by who? As we enter the final furlong, or as The Paranoid Squirrel Rock Show can now be heard on White Line Fever - Rugby League’s Rockingest 24 hour-hour Radio Station, subscribe here:, we are heading for the final try, The WitchDoktors help us along with a track from “Voodoo Eye”. Even though I played some Helldivers last week, I play them again this, but it’s Dream, probably the first Norwegian supergroup and a track from their one and only 1967, just about to be re-issued LP “Get Dreamy”, that tidies things up for another week.
