A Séance at Syd’s is an Anthology of Modern Acid-Folk-Haunt-Psych-Prog-Space-Kraut-Radiophonic-Rock Etcetera Quotes features over thirty of today’s leading figures in the world of… well, Modern Acid-Folk-Haunt-Psych-Prog-Space-Kraut-Radiophonic-Rock.

A collection of words, with and wisdom from some eighty different bands, performers, artists and label heads, heralds of and spokesmen of the sprawling mass of musical notions that have made this decade so unexpectedly enthralling
Forget all the doom and gloom that surrounds the music industry of today; forget the epitaphs that are written almost every day; and forget the widespread insistence that we’ve never had it so bad. Behind all those words, the modern music scene is actually pretty darned healthy.
No longer the Anglo-American hegemony that once held all the cards, contemporary music now drip feeds its sonics from every corner of the globe. This book interviews musicians from Portugal, France, Germany, Finland, Spain, Italy and Sweden,releasing their music in a variety of formats and across a wealth of platforms.
Once, the major labels held all-consuming sway, swatting aside any upstart indies that might challenge their dominance as though they were less than gnats. Today, it’s the majors who are the endangered species, as bands prove they don’t even need record labels any more.

Self releasing through Bandcamp, spotlighting on the Active Listener, financing via Kickstarter… those three sites (and they are by no means alone) could keep you discovering new music for the rest of your life.

Blast Magic Jake & The Power Crystals  An all star DETROIT Garage Punk Rock Band featuring members of King Tuff, The GO, John Krautner,Conspiracy Of Owls . The Power Crystals charge forth, freshly lightning-struck into a new, gangly life, slid off from the slab in the garage, now, a strangely enchanting lo-fi-grooving, shredded-to-hell bubblegum pop Frankenstein.

Its bloodstream equally addled by caffeine and nicotine and coursing with a fuzzed and fibrous rock n roll flush, its gaunt, metallic body scrapes its way exuberantly through a skateboarding album of 2-minute ravenous pounders.
Roaring, squalling solos, steady trucking bass ripples and distortion-blustered vocals that balance a keyed-up cadence with a melodious belt; there’s light flares of strutting glam-rock, blues wringing, cathartic punk huffing tromps and relentless…relentlessly shakeable rhythms.
There are no slow songs.

–This project brings together members of The Go, the Detroit Cobras, Magic Shop, the Readies, Electric Fire Babies, Isles of ESP, Conspiracy of Owls and Hi-Speed Dubbing. They’ve got an album out on California-based cassette mavens Burger Records.

Our full line-up for this year’s festival is here – feast your eyes on all that #PZYK.

One of the most venerated guitarists ever to grace hard rock music, the late, great Randy Rhoads, will be celebrated in the truest of fashions with the release of IMMORTAL RANDY RHOADS – THE ULTIMATE TRIBUTE. A collection of 11 classic Rhoads co-written songs, IMMORTAL RANDY RHOADS – THE ULTIMATE TRIBUTE  is performed by twenty top contemporary artists, including old friends and performing partners Rudy Sarzo and Frankie Banali, and was produced & compiled by the Grammy-award winning guitarist and producer Bob Kulick at his own studio.


A lover of classical music, Rhoads had taken initial steps into rock’n’roll as a 16 year old when he formed a band, that soon became Quiet Riot. Rhoads was vaulted to the limelight in 1979 when Ozzy Osbourne chose the relatively unknown guitarist to help shape a new future for him via his band, Blizzard of Oz. The result saw Rhoads co-script two of the most famous albums in hard rock history, Blizzard Of Oz and Diary of A Madman, and rapidly ascended the stairway of fame and recognition for his virtuoso playing and writing. Famed for the way he fused classical flavors with technically-excellent hard rock, Rhoads became one of the most influential lead guitarists in rock. When he tragically died on March 19th 1982 in a plane accident, Rhoads was only 25 years old, but thankfully, the legend of his work, ethos and their continuing influence on a whole new generation of guitarists, has never dimmed.

Along with the CD, IMMORTAL RANDY RHOADS – THE ULTIMATE TRIBUTE, will also contain a bonus DVD, including a feature on the Musonia School of Music, a teaching school on North Hollywood, California, set up by Randy’s mother and run by his brother Kelle Rhoads.

CURB – ” Outside / Communication “

Tags: ,


Their latest single “Outside” is now available for purchase both physically and digitally!
Their first physical release, “Outside” is limited to fifty hand-numbered cassettes, accompanied with a download code for the A-side as well as a tape-exclusive B-side; a re-recorded studio version of our first ever demo “How Are You Now?”, available nowhere other than these cassettes.

Curb have been notchting plays for a while now. Having performed with the likes of Twin Peaks, Kult Country, and Darlia (to name a few), the West Midlands four-piece have announced their debut physical release.

The first piece of new material to come from the band in six months, “Outside” is a storm of twanging riffs and silk-smooth vocals. An anthem for anyone who’s ever felt like an outcast, the track’s thunderous guitars and ceaselessly driving rhythms hammer the music heart. “Words don’t come so easily” vocalist Tom O’Ryan croons, “but I think it’s plain to see that we’re standing on the outside.”

Psychedelic influences meld into a rock-and-roll aesthetic, presenting the band at their most raucous yet. Resounding guitar riffs skid and screech whilst vocals glide with an inspiring ease – anarchic cries contrasting perfectly behind a cool and collected front. Check out the earlier track “Communication”





HYENA – ” Mental Home “

Tags: , , ,


Hyena’s debut single “Mental Home” is teeming with visceral energy. It’s the ultimate high for the band from 2014, a year that has seen the return of rock.   Royal Blood producer Tom Dalgety produced the single, which combines brutal, heavy Queens of the Stone Age-esque riffs and the quirky rock melodies of Pulled Apart By Horses. Hyena are bringing a fresh new edge to the genre, much like their contemporaries Darlia and Drenge.

The single itself is a tongue-in-cheek nod to the fact that nowhere is normal and everywhere is strange. The band are asking us to question what ‘normal’ means. Frontman Jacob Bell says, “the song is basically saying ‘what are you going to tell me is good for me next and where else are you going to tell me to go?’ – it’s all the same, everywhere.”

Rising from the ashes of Weatherbird, all four members (Jacob Ball, Joshua Taylor, Dom Farley and Reuben Gwilliam) decided to reinvent themselves as Hyena. The band had been playing as Weatherbird since they were 13-years-old and it was time for a new direction. With Tom Dalgety on board as producer and the single being mastered by John Davis (Led Zeppelin, Wolf Alice), Hyena are definitely off to a good start.

Being from Telford, the boys have fought to create their own scene. With not much going on in their hometown, they’ve carved their own space, built their own ladder and they’re attempting to climb it all the way to the top.
The Telford newcomers have clearly been looking closely at what Royal Blood did last year – and why not? With songs as good as ‘Mental Home’ they’re certainly doing something right.

Mental Home released via Red Venom Records on 17th November 2014. lookout for this band in 2015


In less than 20 seconds into opening trackPeasantry Or ‘Light! Inside Of Light’ when the whole shit breaks wide open. After a few heartbeat-style drum thunks, the band rips into a titanic, surging riff, a mystic quasi-eastern stomp that any doom metal band in history would be proud to call its own. It’s a huge sound, and Godspeed work it for everything it’s worth. For 10 solid minutes, they ride that riff, traveling with it through mountains and gorges, rising and falling with it. On “Peasantry,” Godspeed sound more like a rock band than they may have ever sounded. In the past, Godspeed’s triumphant loud moments have pulled a ton of their impact from the vast and sometimes laborious stretches of quiet that come before them. But this is Godspeed saying fuck it and jumping straight to loud, then pretty much staying there for a very long time. And it loses none of its impact in the process. There’s beauty in that stomp, especially when guitars and violins come in to play a new melody on top of it. But they always come back to the riff.

If the members of Godspeed ran their band as a business entity, rather than a flickering and mercurial ghost of a thing, they could’ve been the defining film-score composers of our age. (Instead, they ceded some of that position to Explosions In The Sky, who are great but whose sound is a more approachable version of Godspeed’s earth-rumbles.) Things sound bigger and bolder and more emotionally loaded, for whatever reason, when Godspeed’s music is playing. A lonely pigeon flying past your window can look like an ominous harbinger of doom, or like a symbol for collective hope, depending on what part of the album you’re at. With Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress, they’ve cut out some of the more atmospheric elements of their sound — the scratchy found-sound samples, the faraway ambient crackles. But they haven’t lost any of the primal force that makes them something more than a band.
