January 13th, 2018


Well I just about managed to scrape though The Paranoid Squirrel Rock Show last night, fighting off aching joints and a sore throat. Fortunately, all I had to do was press the “Play” and “Stop” buttons, with minimal banter......So no “Freebird (Live)”, “Curtain Call” or an edited version of “Dopesmoker”. Phew! Instead as previously advertised it was tracks from these artists;

The Wildhearts,
The Methadones,
King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard,
Lure, Burke, Stinson & Kramer,
The Vulz,
Heavy Drapes,
The Boys,
The Damned (new single),
Professor and the Madman,
The Weird Things
and The Sin City Sinners.


The Paranoid Squirrel ep 586

January 6th, 2018


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;

Rich Rags,
Jake Starr,
Chuck Norris Experiment,
The Misfits,
Drama Club Rejects,
Crash Diet,
Bare Knuckle Messiahs,
Diamond Black,
Dead Furies,
Sick Boys Revue,
The Cavemen
and White Boy and the Average Rat Band.
