The Paranoid Squirrel ep 549

A new band to The Paranoid Squirrel are The Black Angels who are first up this week with a track from their “Death Song” LP. The Chuck Norris Experiment have covered an Adam West track on their up and coming “Chück Me!” album that has also just been released as a 7” which of course I play. Swiftly following on are Jake Starr and the Delicious Fullness as Jake used to be the throatalist with Adam West. Peter Perrett, singer with The Only Ones, is just about to release his first solo album “How the West was Won”, the title track of which I play. TV Eye, a band that Duran Duran owes a couple of their hits to, have just released an album of studio and rehearsal material recorded between 1977-78, amongst their ranks are Dave Kusworth (The Jacobite’s), Dave Twist (The Black Bombers) and Andrew Wickett (Duran Duran). Of course, I play something from it. Over Easter Flash House, Scumbag Millionaire, Bitch Queens and The Hip Priests set off for a four date Tourette dubbed “The Furious, faultless, four headed sexed up, revved up Rock ‘n’ Roll revue that’s guaranteed to lose money” because you could see all four bands, two which had been flown in from foreign climes, for a fiver. And to lose them even more money; the first ten people through the door, at each gig, got a 12-track tour ep for free. Naturally a track form each band is played. Straight after The Hip Priests I play some Body Count. I’ve never really been into them. I think naively I shied away because of Ice-T’s Rap connection. It’s not a bad album to be honest, the Slayer medley sounded like Slayer with Ice-T on vocals, it all right but I was expecting something else/more. In a great piece of linkage, I managed to play the new Black Bullets single whilst talking about early curfews. South African based band Four King Ace, think about it, have a track played from their debut album “Never Aim to Please” but it’s Crazy Lixx and a track from their 5th and new album “Rough Justice” that ends this week’s show.

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.

First Broadcast on Rock Radio UK at 11pm 24-03-17

Back in the comfort of the studio for this week’s show with Gluecifer the first band out of the blocks as a tribute to those of us who travel to foreign climes to see bands play live. Then once again it’s the Backyard Babies because…..well, just because. Hey! Hello! are up next which leads nicely into Lupus Dei who feature The Rev and Toshi from the aforementioned Hey! Hello! A band that I meant to play last week if the traffic was bad was Junkyard and a track from the band’s first new album in something like 25 years. That track of course gets played this week. Thanks to Rock Radio UK’s DJ Dropbox folder I have discovered Freedom Fuel from Helsinki. To me their album “Happy People” remains me of The Soundtrack of our Lives playing Ghost, or vice versa. Hard Action have a new single out for us to enjoy, either in ones and zeros or as a limited 7”. I play the digital version. Having already played the new A side from The Fiascos latest offering I opt to play the double A side. No exclusivity at all. I’m missing the Hip Priest playing live up at the Nambucca tonight, I know, sad times, so I play two tracks from them. Both the same, one featuring Gary X-Ray from the lost version of “Full Tilt Bullshit” and the other that we all know and love with Nathan Von Cruz. The Bitch Queens will be one of the bands supporting the Hip Priests during their Easter weekend campaign which I’ll be at London and Brighton dates. The band at the beginning of May will be releasing their third LP “L.O.V.E.”. Which I have……..A single from the album is due to be released in April which I air. Ryan Hamilton & the Traitors are just about to launch a “Fan Club” site not to dissimilar to Ginger’s GASS project, which sounds great. To underline it I play another track from their/his soon to be released “Capital Spirits - an acoustic evening - Live in London” album. A new band to find their way to The Paranoid Squirrel Drey are The Clamps and I think over the coming weeks/months tracks from their new album “Blend, Shake, Swallow” are going to be played on a regular basis. Starting this evening. Rounding off this week’s show are Bullet Proof Lovers with a tune from “Shot Through The Heart” which had me falling over myself to get once I’d read Dom Daley’s Uber Rock review.
