Nev Brooks was the lucky UR scribe handed the task of trying to get to grips with a tribute-littered setlist....

River_Plate_DVD_thmbWhat better way to launch your new DVD than with an exclusive screening at a venue you hold dear to your heart?

An essential release, says Dom Daley, our man for whom trashy rock 'n' roll isn't just a genre, but a way of life....

Jim_Tony_Mottram._thmb_jpgPost apocalyptic rock may be an easy thing to imagine (if not say) in 2011, but back in 1985 one band from the UK was blazing a trail of crazy motorcycle tyre tracks both sides of the Atlantic as they tried to reach the big time. Rogue Male was the name of the band and Mark Taylor caught up with them recently to see how their second quest for world domination was taking shape.

Black_n_Blue_Hell_Yeah_coverBlack 'N Blue might be more famous these days for being the previous band of Kiss-lite ringer Tommy Thayer but, in the glorious Eighties, they had the might of Geffen Records behind them and the weight of Gene Simmons producing them. After a brief sojourn at the helm of cock rockers Warrant, frontman Jaime St James returns with original members Jeff 'Woop' Warner and Patrick Young and a spanking new album, released and rejuvenated by the incredible reviving waters at Frontiers Records. Dave Prince loves it - surprised?
