The Paranoid Squirrel ep 586

January 6th, 2018

Logo_V3.png

As it’s the first Paranoid Squirrel Rock Show of 2018 I kicked things off this week with Pilot. Well, obviously it is that song, but as you can play it for only the first 4 weeks of the year, unless you’re Kory Clarke, I thought I’d wheel it out. Up next, it’s some acoustic shenanigans from Role Model Rich Rags who played the Brook in Wallington on the 29th. The Vegan Restaurant and Bar of The Brook is relocating to Mare Street in Hackney on the 19th. However, the Recording Studio is staying put. Jake Starr and the Delicious Fullness have just issued a brand spanking new modtastic 7” for us to enjoy. The a-side is “You Better Run” backed with a live version of “Weed Bus”. Of course, the a-side gets an airing. Jake also crops up on the new Chuck Norris Experiment rarity, compilation CD “Hotter Stuff”; 13 tracks of singles, covers and b-sides. Jake contribution is on the single version of The Misfits cover “Where Eagles Dare” along with HeWhoCanNotBeNamned, but it’s the previously unreleased track that gets played, or is it…..? Discharge recently supported The Misfits over in the US of A. Quite a coup I think you’ll agree. To celebrate I play a live track from their “Live at the City Gardens, New Jersey” album. Well, as there was a strict no Mobile/Cell policy, the chances of seeing or hearing Discharge in their supporting role are going to be slim to none. Straight afterwards I play the Headliners as it would be rude not to. As well as playing at The Parish in Huddersfield on the 17th February as part of the series of Scott Sorry Testimonial/Fund Raising gigs, The Drama Club Rejects are just about to release a new ep on the 20th January called “Anywhere but Here”. Of course I play something from it. As I’ve strayed into fund raising territory, a campaign has been set up for the family of Rev. Jim Forrester bassist from Foghound and Serpents of Secrecy who was shot and killed outside the Baltimore Tattoo Museum where he worked five days before Christmas. A new Foghound track “Keep On Shovelling” that was going to be used as part of an upcoming Split 7” project has been now made available to benefit the family of Rev Jim. It’s one of those “Name Your Price” downloads, so anything you have going spare will be much appreciated. Plus it’s a great song as you will hear. CrashDiet have also just released their first single to feature vocalist number 4, Gabriel Keyes, in the shape and form of “We are the Legion”, it certainly was worth the wait as is the new material from former TigerTailz vocalist Kim Hooker who has amassed a new band called Bare Knuckle Messiahs. Two tracks from the band’s debut album are doing the internet rounds, one of which I play. A new band to me are Diamond Black, although various members, Ben Christo and Justin Lightspeed aren’t. Diamond Black have just released their first foray into singledom with the track “Sorrow”. Impressed, much. For fans of; The Cult, HIM, Judas Priest, ABBA, basically if you like Rock, you’ll like Diamond Black. Probably. I received two e-mails last week, well not only two e-mails but two with music attached. First it was Dead Furies and then it was Sick Boys Revue. As the bands took the trouble to send me music, I take the time and air them. Onto “Re-issue Corner” with The Cavemen and White Boy and the Average Rat Band debut albums getting the 2018 re-mastered treatment. Bonus tracks ahoy! A tune from each takes us up to the one hour mark and the end of this week’s show. Boo and hiss!

A quick reference to the bands I play;

Pilot,
Rich Rags,
Jake Starr,
Chuck Norris Experiment,
Discharge,
The Misfits,
Drama Club Rejects,
Foghound,
Crash Diet,
Bare Knuckle Messiahs,
Diamond Black,

The Paranoid Squirrel ep 577

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,
Borracho,
Channel 43,
Jake Starr and The Delicious Fullness,
Motörhead,
Johnny Moped,
The Professionals,
Robin Black,
Maximum RNR,
The Hip Priests,
Royal Republic,
Michael Monroe
and Husker Du.

No e-mails, no texts, so it looks like last night’s show  on Rock Radio UK went off all right. Although to balance things out, as I ran short on last week’s show, I over ran on this week’s. Not that you’d have known if you listened in live as I skilfully faded things out at the appointed time. So, if you Stream or Download yesterday’s show you’ll be treated to a whole 2 ½ minutes of extra music. That includes;

Smack,
Justin and the Unclean,
The Supersuckers,
The Crybabys,
Role Models,
Hardcore Superstar,
Derwood Andrews,
Sonic Screamers,
The Professionals,
Indonesian Junk,
The Routes,
The Cherry Dolls,
Broken Bones
and Metallica.

So, two of the Invacar wheels fell off on last night’s show; I played the wrong side of a single, I realised my error whilst it was playing so apologised when it finished and I miss timed the length of the show, leaving me to ad-lib for 1 minute and 15 minutes. It’s not pretty. However, the previous 58 minutes and 45 seconds more than make up for it with
The Damned,
Mink Daggers,
The Fellow Reptiles,
Sulo,
The DeRellas,
The Electric Shakes,
The Curse,
The Lords of Altamont,
Jo Dog & the Desperados,
The Schizophonics,
Mean Motor Scooter,
Amplified,
The Cherry Dolls
and The Hellacopters occupying my Rock Radio UK time slot.
