LEE ROCKER  
  1. Lost highway
  2. Sold us down the river
  3. Swing this

Since the release of his Alligator debut, Racin’ The Devil, bassist/vocalist/songwriter (and Stray Cats co-founder) Lee Rocker’s solo career has been skyrocketing. Publications from USA Today to Billboard and The New York Times raved about the undeniable power and foot-stomping fun of Rocker’s Americana-based roots rock. OffBeat declared, “What’s most satisfying about Lee Rocker is his ability to graft classic Sun licks and shuffles onto Americana. He bridges the gap between Bruce Springsteen and Hank Williams, Sr.” Bass Player magazine simply said, “He absolutely kills.” Lee’s live shows, fueled by his barnstorming, rocking band, grow wilder each night out. And now, on the heels of the national Stray Cats 2007 summer reunion tour, Lee Rocker is back with his second Alligator album, Black Cat Bone..

OLD KERRY McKEE  Cattle and Wolves (S)
Old Kerry McKees nya singel 'Cattle & Wolves' hanterar hans personliga brytning från en religiös uppväxt, till en mer sekulär humanistisk syn på livet Singeln är tagen från nya albumet 'Mono Secular Sounds' som släpps i höst

Old Kerry McKee är länken som inte borde finnas mellan gammal amerikansk folkmusik, blues och black metal. Smidd i punk och metal, men för evigt genomsyrad av den skitiga, krokiga och idiosynkratiska skräck-blues som är så framträdande i hans musik. Samtidigt är det så vackert att det vänder sig i magen, dynamiskt och maximalt innerligt utan minsta tveksamhet.

När detta utsökta spektrum av ljud och känslor framförs live upplevs något som bäst beskrivs som en kollision av naturliga element utförda av en kille som bär hjärtat i sin oroligt utsträckta hand, uppskuret för alla att se in i.

Nu är han här för att släppa den första singeln från sitt kommande debutalbum – en egen tolkning av det klassiska stycket House of the Rising Sun.

Han berättar om singeln: House of the Rising Sun var en av de första låtarna jag lärde mig att spela på min fars gitarr. Låten har tolkats på många sätt genom historien, av hjältar som Leadbelly, Woody Guthrie och Bob Dylan för att nämna några. Jag hade en vision att förmedla en intensiv, rå men också melankolisk känsla, för att göra texterna så mycket rättvisa som möjligt. Inspirationen kommer främst från de ovan nämnda hjältarnas versioner men kanske med mer av en bergsballad-känsla. En sammankoppling av inspiration från amerikansk folkhistoria med en touch av slätten och skogarna utanför Larv."

Idén till Old Kerry McKees ljudbild växte fram ur kombinationen av gammal amerikansk folkmusik och blues från förkrigstiden, men med en ambition att förnya och experimentera med hans tidigare influenser från death metal, punk och black metal. Ända sedan det ursprungliga skapandet av Old Kerry McKee har den akustiska gitarren alltid varit den följeslagare som är närmast hjärtat, trogen, stolt representerad och också den tydligaste delen av den kreativa processen. Så efter många år, gitarrer, experiment och förbannelser, har det uppfyllt sin roll och ska nu efterträdas av elgitarren. Detta, tillsammans med den ständigt närvarande vinylspelaren och den nyfunna vännen kassettspelaren, tar ett nytt sound långsamt form på det nya albumet. Obskyra gamla vinyler och självkonstruerade ljudeffekter i en knarrande smältdeg kommer att fortsätta vara en stor del av den nya musiken. Så när något gammalt går i graven, väcks något nytt till liv.

Nya albumet 'Mono Secular Sounds' kommer att släppas senare i år på Icons Creating Evil Art

BRIDGET KELLY BAND  Dark spaces (A)
The Bridget Kelly Band (BKB) is excited to announce the release of their much-anticipated 6th album Dark Spaces on Alpha Sun Records (2020), with 13 all-original songs, and sounds that reach across music genres and eras.

A fashionable and diverse Blues-Rock-influenced album that boasts an eclectic mix of engaging traditional and modern-day compositions, Dark Spaces reaches into sonic and lyrical territory that can best be described as timely, emotive, moving, and provocative.

BKB's musical excursions are energetic and lively, borrowing from a variety of musical forms including Blues, Pop, and Southern-Rock. From straight-up, 12-bar electric Blues progressions to danceable blues-rock hybrids, BKB explores the landscapes of the mind and body, and the stark realities of the human condition, with songs framed in subject matters that span from the murky recesses of isolation and loneliness, to the summits of hope and unbridled optimism.

The sultry vocals of Bridget Kelly and the incendiary guitar work of Tim Fik combine for many magical moments on this release, showing depths of maturity in song writing and performance; as well as an exciting new direction for the band, and a hint of things yet to come. The band has regularly charted in the top-10 of the RMR Blues charts. Their "Bone Rattler" CD was #1 on the RMR Electric Blues charts for 24 weeks in 2017, and was the #2 Electric Blues record for that year. The band's Blues Warrior CD climbed to #3 on the RMR Blues-Rock chart in June of 2018.

In 2018, Tim Fik was honored by the Blues Foundation in Memphis (blues.org) with a "Keeping the Blues Alive" (KBA) Award for his lifelong work in Blues education.

The Bridget Kelly Band's "In the Spirit" 2019 summer tour included standing ovation performances at clubs, jukes, concert halls, and Blues festivals across the nation... from Florida to Minnesota,Maine to Colorado.

While the Pandemic of 2020 has led to the cancellation of show for the 2020 summer tour, the band is back in the studio working on tracks for yet another album, to be released in January of 2021 (tentatively entitled "Touch of Madness").

For now...Bridget Kelly Band is back in 2020 with "Dark Spaces" -- a Baker's dozen of hot, provocative, rockin' sweet and delicious tunes that are sure to please. Get ready, get set, Go! Enjoy.

  • 1. Free Me 4:59 -- about the desire to escape the bondage of isolation and despair, and the "10-by-10 room"

  • 7. Sometimes You Gotta Dance 5:32 -- an upbeat testimony about the cathartic aspects of dance
  • 8. Moments 6:24 -- an epic slow blues-rock tune about self-reflection and inner turmoil
  • 9. In the Spirit (Souls in the River) 3:46 -- a throwback song about the joys of community, and the things we all share

  • 11. Back Seat Love 4:25 -- a hot little dance tune that will rev your engine
  • 12. Southern Wind 4:53 -- a festival worthy Southern rock song, and a mighty good old-school jam

BACKBOONS  
  1. Take me out
  2. Piece of my heart

Falu-rotade Backboons nya låt "Take Me Out" är hämtad från det kommande albumet "Burnout" som släpps 5 juni. Låten skulle lika gärna kunna spegla något vi alla drömmer om just nu - en kväll och en natt ute tillsammans med vänner, utan att behöva fundera över social och fysisk distansering… "Take Me Out" släpps den 8 maj.

Rock ’n’ roll-bandet Backboons har sitt ursprung i Falun och har sedan 2011 släppt två album och en EP. Under åren har de turnerat runt i ett flertal länder i Norden och ute i Europa och spelat med band som JLT, Top Cats och The Refreshments. Originalmedlemmarna Joel och Nick har spelat tillsammans i över tio år och har de senaste åren tillsammans med bröderna Emanuel och Elias slipat fram bandets sound. I mars 2020 klev de över en halv miljon streams på Spotify.
Backboons från Falun släpper mer musik från det kommande albumet. Idag kom den skönt gungande "Piece Of My Heart". Det här är definitivt en buggvänlig låt. Albumet "Burnout" släpps den 5 juni via Dalapop.

JOHN LINDBERG TRIO  Crying, Lying, Denying (S)
I början av 2021 är John Lindberg Trio aktuella med nytt album, men redan imorgon den 22 maj släpps helt nya singeln ’Crying, Lying, Denying’ via Enviken Records. Singeln har utökats med extraspåret ’Keep A Knockin’, en hyllning till en av bandets nyligen bortgångna husgudar Little Richard.

Rock ’n’ Roll-bandet John Lindberg Trio är kända för sin energiska live-spelningar, något som rönt bandet framgångar även utanför Sveriges gränser, bl.a. i Tyskland. Deras senaste fyra album har alla placerat sig topp 10 på albumlistan, och i början av 2021 släpper bandet sitt nionde fullängdsalbum i ordningen.

Som för så många andra så har Corona satt stopp för John Lindberg Trios frekventa turnéliv, utöver sina årliga turnéer på hemmaplan och ute i Europa var bandet klara för tre festivaler i Nordamerika.

För att råda bot på suget efter att spela live bjöd bandet igår kväll sina hängivna fans på en live-streamad heltimmeskonsert från Liljan i Borlänge via sin Facebook-sida, i samarbete med det amerikanska märket Blast Cult

J&B KINGS  
  1. Let´s Go-Go
  2. Let´s Go-Go (extended mix)

Recently D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser declared, “When I say go-go you say … IS D.C. The crowd shouted, “D.C. is go-go. Go-go is D.C.”

Much like what New Orleans is to jazz and rhythm & blues, Nashville to country, D.C, is forever linked to the conga drums, rototoms, and hand-held cowbells and the swing rhythm of go-go – that tasty layer of ornamentation that hovers above a classic funk back-beat.

From the mid-60s to late 70s, The Godfather of Go-Go, Chuck Brown brewed an infectious concoction of funk, rhythm, and blues and soul music into a dominant dancehall style party music that to this day still has legions of followers and specialty bands who throw go-go parties.

Jesse “Dubmatix” King and Bill King – the J&B Kings, are at it again with a follow-up to their New Orleans flavoured “Louisiana Strut,” which borrows on the more traditional piano/organ influences of the gospel - mixed with the hip-hop architecture of Dubmatix, for their first release - now on over 200 international stations. “Let’s Go-Go” continues the duo’s experiments with “sound design” - using baked 2-inch tapes of Bill King’s from the 70s and 80s recordings – chopped, polished, and repurposed.

The King’s are heard Tuesday evenings 9-midnight at Jazz.Fm91 with Soul Nation Radio – a blend of funk, soul, hip-hop, neo-soul, soul-jazz – lots of Bootsy Collins and D.C. Chuck Brown.

“Let’s Go-Go” is their way of recognizing the giants who made the sound a source of great joy and robust nightlife – Rare Essence, Trouble Funk, Junk Yard Band, Northeast Groovers, Mambo Sauce and the man – Chuck Brown & the Soul Searchers and mad passion for experimentation and invention.

Jesse “Dubmatix” King – sound design, bass, guitar, engineer, mixing, mastering. Bill King – classic tracks, keyboards, mixing

THE RHYTHM EXPRESS feat. BILL KING  Driftin´ blues (S)
“I’ve had this song in my repertoire the past twenty years, one I discovered while searching through a variety of West Coast blues compilations. Los Angles of the 40s’ was a hotbed for blues trios – Oscar Moore featuring pianist/vocalist Nat Cole and brother Johnny Moore showcasing the smooth delivery of pianist/singer Charles Brown at the core of the unit.

One of the first songs Brown ever penned was Driftin’ Blues while a high school teenager and also one he first sang in live performance. Driftin’ Blues is rooted in church and gospel, and that battleground been secular and religious types – that push and pull between roots church and popular music.

Pablo, Shaky, Jesse and I booked a session at Paul’s Side Door Studio and let it rip – open microphones and a couple of run-throughs. Hammond organ was draped on then Shaky J’s blistering guitar reminiscent of that 60s’ San Francisco fusion of blues and psychedelia - Johnny Winter’s band – a bit of Jimi Hendrix – Janis, Canned Heat and those flat off-the-floor sessions - the Paul Butterfield Blues Project and Electric Flag sides of the 60s’ featuring keyboards and guitar - The Fillmore concerts with blue notes bleeding on one another - that space in between drenched in indigo and crimson.” – Bill King

“Well, I'm drifting, and I'm drifting, like a ship out on the sea Drifting and I'm drifting, like a ship out on the sea Well, I ain't got nobody, in this world to care for me.”
  • Vocals/Keyboards – Bill King

CHRISTONE "KINGFISH" INGRAM  Kingfish (A)
Once a generation, a blues artist comes along who not only reminds mainstream audiences how deeply satisfying and emotionally moving the best blues music can be, but shakes the genre to its core. With both eyes on the future and the blues in his blood, 20-year-old guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Christone "Kingfish" Ingram is set to take the music world by storm with the long-awaited release of his debut album, KINGFISH, on Alligator Records. Sprung from the same earth as so many of the Delta blues masters, Kingfish comes bursting out of Clarksdale, Mississippi, just ten miles from the legendary crossroads of Highways 61 and 49. A student of the Delta's musical history, he is acutely aware of the musicians and the music that emerged from his corner of the world. "I do think I have an old soul, that I’ve been here before," he says. "I'm moving forward with one foot in the past."

“You don’t see too many kids into blues music,” says the nascent star. “In my town, every kid wants to be a rapper – I wanted to do something no one else was doing.” And although he grew up near the crossroads where Robert Johnson allegedly cut a deal with the devil, Kingfish insists he didn’t do any of that to make his guitar howl the blues. “I just practice all the time,” he says, “that’s the only deal I made, and it’s with myself.”

Recorded in Nashville and produced by two-time Grammy winner Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy, Susan Tedeschi, Joe Louis Walker), KINGFISH showcases Ingram’s blistering, raw and inspired guitar playing, soulful, deep vocals and songwriting. He tells stories with his solos, channeling the spirits of all the past masters while the music he makes is his own. He co-wrote eight of the album’s 12 tracks. “A lot of folks know me for my covers,” he says. “That’s why it’s important for me to release original music.” The first radio single, Outside Of This Town, is a fierce statement of purpose – both musically and lyrically – from this rising star. The songs range from autobiographical (Been Here Before, Before I’m Old) to humorous (Trouble), and from white hot (It Ain’t Right) to slow and searing (Love Ain’t My Favorite Thing). His friend and mentor, Buddy Guy, adds vocals and guitar on Fresh Out while another friend, Keb Mo, brings his warm, conversational voice to Listen, and adds his rhythm and resonator guitars to six tracks.

Alligator Records president Bruce Iglauer considers Kingfish a natural fit for the blues and roots label. “At the age of 20, Kingfish is one of the most exciting and passionate young artists I’ve seen in many years. He’s creating new music that feels like blues but doesn’t copy what’s already been done. His roots are firmly in the Mississippi Delta, and you can hear that raw Delta honesty in his playing and singing. His guitar work is technically dazzling, but it’s all about the emotions of the song and moving the audience. He’s perfectly capable of crowd-pleasing shredding, but his music is remarkably mature. He knows which are the important notes, the notes that tell the story and grab the audience, and he leaves out the extraneous ones. He sings with the intensity and directness of a seasoned blues artist. He venerates the blues masters of the past and present but is eagerly making his own statement, inspired by the music they created. I’m watching him become a young, visionary blues giant. He has an amazing future ahead of him, and I’m proud that he’s joined the Alligator family.”

Kingfish is equally thrilled to have his debut album come out on Alligator, “I never thought this would happen. I’ve been waiting to release my first record for such a long time. To have it come out on Alligator is a really great thing.”

Born to a musical family near Clarksdale, Mississippi on January 19, 1999, Christone Ingram fell in love with music as a small child. There was always music playing around the house. His family sang (and continues to sing) at their family church. His mother, Princess Pride, is first cousin to country music legend Charley Pride. Christone starting hitting drums at age six and at nine he picked up the bass. Around this time his mother enrolled him in a program at the Delta Blues Museum. At age 11, he got his first guitar and quickly mastered it. The young prodigy soaked up music from Robert Johnson to Lightnin’ Hopkins, from B.B. King to Muddy Waters, from Jimi Hendrix to Prince. Before long he could play like them all, but all the while he kept developing his own sound and style.

Christone first stepped on stage at the age of 11 at Clarksdale’s famous Ground Zero Club, playing behind one of his mentors, Mississippi blues icon Bill “Howl-N-Madd” Perry. Perry gifted the young musician with a new stage name, Kingfish. The young bluesman performed at the White House for Michelle Obama in 2014 as part of a delegation of young blues musicians from the Delta Blues Museum. By age 16 he was turning heads and winning awards, including the 2015 Rising Star Award, presented by The Rhythm & Blues Foundation.

Funk music superstar Bootsy Collins began sharing Kingfish’s YouTube videos – some with millions of views each – online, telling his followers “this is how a child can influence others.” Rapper The Game did the same. Christone’s appeal beyond blues was immediate. He appeared on The Rachael Ray Show as well as The Steve Harvey Show. He was cast in season two of the Netflix program Luke Cage after the series lead producer saw one of his videos. Two of his cover songs appear on the show’s soundtrack album, which immediately introduced him to a young audience who had never heard the blues before. Kingfish recently performed in an NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert with rap legend Rakim, who also appeared in Luke Cage. Kingfish has shared stages with Buddy Guy, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Robert Randolph, Guitar Shorty, Eric Gales and many others. He has befriended rock stars from Nikki Sixx to Dave Grohl. Since graduating high school, Kingfish has continued his life on the road. He has performed at festivals around the country, including stops at the Chicago Blues Festival, the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, the Bonita Blues Festival in Florida, The Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, on the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise, at Austin’s Antone’s and at San Francisco’s famed Biscuits & Blues. He’s performed in Europe multiple times, including appearances at the Moulin Blues Festival in the Netherlands and the Blues Heaven Festival in Denmark. In addition to making music and touring the world, Kingfish donates his time and talent to two causes important to him. Through his work with various local Blues In The Schools programs, he visits with students around the country while he’s on tour. “It’s important to teach kids about blues and music and give them another forum to express themselves.” He’s also an official ambassador for United By Music North America, a program helping people with developmental challenges, such as autism, to express themselves through music. “Treat everybody right and anybody can do anything,” says Kingfish. With the release of KINGFISH and a major tour in the works (featuring dates with both Vampire Weekend and Buddy Guy), Christone “Kingfish” Ingram is ready to blaze a trail with the blues torch that’s been passed to him. With his eye-popping guitar playing and his reach-out-and-grab-you-by-the-collar vocals, Kingfish delivers each song with unmatched passion and precision. Steeped in the rich, vivid history of the blues, he’s driven by his burning desire to create contemporary music that speaks to his generation and beyond. Kingfish is a real life 21st century bluesman who is inspired by the music of Robert Johnson, but dreams of one day collaborating with Kendrick Lamar and soul-funk bassist Thundercat. “My core is blues,” he says, “but it’s important for me to create a sound and style that is uniquely my own. I have a lot to say, so please stay tuned.”

LILY LOCKSMITH  
  1. I don´t need
  2. Can´t believe you wanna leave

Lily Locksmith kommer att släppa sitt första album i slutet av mars men redan nästa fredag den 7:e februari släpper vi en vinyl singel med två låtar från kommande plattan. Detta sker i samband med hennes framträdande på ”Rockin Race Festival” i Spanien.

Man kan väl lugnt säga att hennes första singel satte henne och bandet på kartan, en singel som tog slut ganska fort och jag misstänker att det kan bli så med denna också. På A-sidan hittar vi låten I Don’t Need som är skriven av gitarristen Chris Bergström och på B-sidan får vi Lilys version av Little Richard låten Can’t Believe You Wanna Leave, en grym blues dänga!

Dessutom kommer den med ett ( i mitt tycke då) grymt snyggt omslag. I Don't Need släpptes som en digital singel redan i December och Can’t Believe You Wanna Leave kommer att finnas på alla digitala plattformar den 7:e februari

URCHIN  
  1. Countdown
  2. Keepin´ it mellow

Tabitha Music have released two tracks recorded by East London band Urchin in 1978. The band split in 1980 and Adrian Smith, lead guitar and vocalist went on to join his long-time friends, Iron Maiden.

I first saw URCHIN play live for the first time at The Swan Hammersmith London on Wednesday 16th August 1978. I was impressed with their drive, dedication, professionalism, songwriting and musicianship and a few weeks later I became their manager and music publisher. Within a few months I was able to fill their gig sheet and with Urchin playing as many as twenty dates every month their converted, sign written coach was frequently seen travelling throughout the UK. It was during those long journeys they wrote a lot of their new material. Those songs were recorded in the Victoria Park Road basement over an eighteen month period and were all recorded live and in one take. The tracks were engineered by the late, “Big” Dave Lewis who was not only their sound man but their driver and roadie. Somehow Dave managed to recreate their sound wherever they played.

Urchin was a superb live band and released two classic singles in the mid-seventies through DJM Records. “Black leather fantasy” c/w Rock & Roll Woman” and “She’s a Roller” c/w “Long Time No Woman” both of which are sought after by collectors around the world.

Now, more than forty years later, some of the tracks they recorded during their frequent rehearsals have been remastered and are now available on iTunes. Tape doesn’t age well but I believe the sound is as near as you would have got to listening to them at their many gigs at the infamous Brecknock in north London, the Corn Dolly in Oxford and pubs and clubs around the UK and Europe.

Urchin continued to tour relentlessly throughout the UK and Europe until they disbanded in the summer of 1980. Although they reunited to play a handful of dates later that year, Adrian was soon to join, his old friends, Iron Maiden.

The rest is history. I hope you enjoy Urchin’s long lost music as much as I do and when you listen to these tracks, if you were ever there, you can relive those heady days at those fantastic gigs. If you weren’t, enjoy it for the first time!

CW AYON  What they say (A)
CW Ayon may call the Southwestern  deserts of New Mexico home, but his  soul is deeply rooted in the Blues and  grooves of the Mississippi Hill Country.  With a rather simple kick/snare and  tambourine set-up, he lays down solid  beats while picking out some catchy  hooks on anything from acoustic to  resonator guitars, sometimes dropping  in a bit of harmonica for good measure.  All the while building a sound and  playing style that is deceptively larger  than it seems. CW Ayon's influences are  Junior Kimbrough, R.L. Burnside, John  Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters and Robert  Belfour, just to name a few.

OLD KERRY McKEE  House of the Rising Sun (S)
Old Kerry McKee är länken som inte borde finnas mellan gammal amerikansk folkmusik, blues och black metal. Smidd i punk och metal, men för evigt genomsyrad av den skitiga, krokiga och idiosynkratiska skräck-blues som är så framträdande i hans musik. Samtidigt är det så vackert att det vänder sig i magen, dynamiskt och maximalt innerligt utan minsta tveksamhet.

När detta utsökta spektrum av ljud och känslor framförs live upplevs något som bäst beskrivs som en kollision av naturliga element utförda av en kille som bär hjärtat i sin oroligt utsträckta hand, uppskuret för alla att se in i.

Nu är han här för att släppa den första singeln från sitt kommande debutalbum – en egen tolkning av det klassiska stycket House of the Rising Sun.

Han berättar om singeln: House of the Rising Sun var en av de första låtarna jag lärde mig att spela på min fars gitarr. Låten har tolkats på många sätt genom historien, av hjältar som Leadbelly, Woody Guthrie och Bob Dylan för att nämna några. Jag hade en vision att förmedla en intensiv, rå men också melankolisk känsla, för att göra texterna så mycket rättvisa som möjligt. Inspirationen kommer främst från de ovan nämnda hjältarnas versioner men kanske med mer av en bergsballad-känsla. En sammankoppling av inspiration från amerikansk folkhistoria med en touch av slätten och skogarna utanför Larv."

Idén till Old Kerry McKees ljudbild växte fram ur kombinationen av gammal amerikansk folkmusik och blues från förkrigstiden, men med en ambition att förnya och experimentera med hans tidigare influenser från death metal, punk och black metal. Ända sedan det ursprungliga skapandet av Old Kerry McKee har den akustiska gitarren alltid varit den följeslagare som är närmast hjärtat, trogen, stolt representerad och också den tydligaste delen av den kreativa processen. Så efter många år, gitarrer, experiment och förbannelser, har det uppfyllt sin roll och ska nu efterträdas av elgitarren. Detta, tillsammans med den ständigt närvarande vinylspelaren och den nyfunna vännen kassettspelaren, tar ett nytt sound långsamt form på det nya albumet. Obskyra gamla vinyler och självkonstruerade ljudeffekter i en knarrande smältdeg kommer att fortsätta vara en stor del av den nya musiken. Så när något gammalt går i graven, väcks något nytt till liv.

Nya albumet 'Mono Secular Sounds' kommer att släppas senare i år på Icons Creating Evil Art

GUITAR TOM AND THE HIGH CATS  Evelina (S)
Guitar Tom And The Highcats är vår senaste signing på rockabillysidan. Det tog oss inte 10 minuter att bestämma oss för att satsa på det här bandet när vi fick deras låtar.

De är otroligt drivna i bandet och produktionen är otroligt bra och signerad Erik Mårtensson som normalt sett sjunger i melodiösa hårdrocksbandet Eclipse. Ett band han även producerar. Erik har producerat många band melodiösa rockplattor de senaste år med exempelvis H.E.A.T och Dynazty som bara två exempel. Att han producerar GT&THC beror delvis på att de bor nära varandra och att grabbarna ville använda hans studio och dels för att Erik tyckte de lät jäkligt bra och ville prova på att producera något annat.

Detta har gjort att Guitar Toms sound är modernt och fräscht med en lite tyngd som gör att de sticker ut på rockabillyscenen

MATS RONANDER  Klubbrock (S)
För många generationer musiklyssnare är han synonym med svensk elektrisk rockblues med sväng och svärta. Med nya singeln ”Klubbrock” och albumet ”Malla motell” som kommer 22 nov, ställer sig ”Malla” bergfast i nuet, samtidigt som han sublimt summerar allt det han står för efter åren i Nature, som soloartist och som gitarrist med åtskilliga av blågula giganter som ABBA och Lundell. ”Malla motell” blir Mats Ronanders första studioalbum sedan 2001, det är värt all väntan. ”Klubbrock” är skriven av Ronander ihop med Henrik Jansson, som producerade ”Malla” på 80-talet i album som ”Tokig” och ”50/50”. Jansson är även producent, tillsammans med Max Lorentz, som i sin tur producerade Mats i 90-talssuccéer som ”Himlen gråter för Elmore James”. Duon står även för ljudregin av övriga ”Malla motell”.

På albumet knyts historien ihop än tydligare genom att Ronander-bekanta musiker som Åke Sundqvist (trummor) och Nalle Påhlsson (bas) finns med. Liksom Lasse Wellander, som ofta kamperat med Ronander sedan barndomens Nature från Örebro - så kommer även 70-talet med. Men ”Malla motell” smeker sig också skickligt in i nutid. På albumet finns exempelvis två samarbeten med Mauro Scocco, låten ”Luft under vingarna” respektive Scocco/Malla-duetten ”Solsken efter regn.”

NORTH MISSISSIPPI ALLSTARS  Up and Rolling (A)
North Mississippi Allstars are set to return with Up and Rolling on October 4th via New West Records. The 12-song set was produced by Luther and Cody Dickinson and recorded at The Zebra Ranch, their family studio established by their father, the legendary Jim Dickinson in Independence, MS. The album also features guest appearances from Mavis Staples, Jason Isbell, Cedric Burnside, Duane Betts, and Sharde Thomas. Up and Rolling finds North Mississippi Allstars getting back to their roots and recapturing the communal spirit upon which the band was founded.

The album includes “What You Gonna Do?” featuring Mavis Staples. The song originally appeared on The Staples Singers’ essential 1965 album Freedom Highway. Luther Dickinson says, “Freedom Highway became one of the records that changed my life. Pulled from my father’s record collection, this music recorded live in a Chicago church, transported me into a live church service with The Staples Singers with drums and bass! This did not sound like my grandmother’s Baptist church. This gospel was so beautiful, yet funky. ‘What You Gonna Do?’ is the bluest gospel song I have ever heard.”

A forgotten roll of film inspired a musical accompaniment, the North Mississippi Allstars’ new record Up and Rolling. Shot before the turn of the century, the photographs resonate with the music of four families from the Mississippi hills. The music "is the sound of modern Mississippi," says Luther Dickinson.

In 1996, a photographer from Texas, Wyatt McSpadden, traveled to North Mississippi looking to photograph local musicians. Brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson had grown up just south of Memphis and cut their teeth playing experimental rock & roll together, as well as the roots repertoire pioneered by their father, Jim Dickinson, a legendary producer (Big Star, the Replacements) and session player (Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan). Their feet were firmly planted in the North Mississippi mud and music scene, and they were excited to show Wyatt around their community, to introduce him to the musical families of Otha Turner, RL Burnside and Junior Kimbrough. “Wyatt was so smooth nobody felt he was taking photos,” Luther recalls. “No one was self-conscious or posing. Wyatt had a cloak of invisibility.”

A month after McSpadden took those photos, the newly formed North Mississippi Allstars made their Memphis debut, incorporating their father’s concept of roots music as a framework for improvisation and blending experimental/psychedelic excursions into Hill Country anthems. In just a few short years, their lives would then be forever changed with the release of their debut album Shake Hands with Shorty in 2000. They wouldn’t see most of the photos for over two decades until McSpadden tracked the brothers down in 2017. Luther says, “The images stopped me in my tracks and blew my mind. The music that changed our lives was captured in these photographs. Cody and I wanted to set the music free and record an album to accompany these photographs illustrating what Mississippi music sounded like in 1996 - and what it sounds like now.” Up and Rolling takes listeners on a tour of this vibrant and rural community: through the hills and along the back roads to Otha’s home, to Junior Kimbrough’s nightclub, and RL Burnside's house parties.

Along with their originals, they covered some of their favorite songs by these local heroes, with help from Cedric Burnside and Sharde Thomas, Otha Turner’s granddaughter. “She was only a child when she became his apprentice and heir to the bamboo throne of fife and drum music,” says Luther. “Now she’s the Queen of the Hill Country and my favorite singing partner.” In addition to duetting with him on RL Burnside’s raunchy “Peaches,” she also sings with Luther on Otha’s “Call That Gone.”

Mavis Staples keeps NMA marching on the freedom highway, singing on her family’s classic "What You Gonna Do?”. Jason Isbell appears on a tune that has been in the Dickinson family for years: “Our father recorded ‘Mean Old World’ with Duane Allman and Eric Clapton during the Layla sessions. Jason invited me to record an acoustic, slide guitar duo version. Cody came up with the new arrangement and wanted to record an electric version with Jason and Duane Betts, using ‘Mean Old World’ as a vehicle to lay down an epic statement about modern-day roots rock guitar.”

Luther hopes, “the boogie is rooted, but spreads evasively from the kudzu jungle grown-over Junior’s concrete slab and Otha’s porch boards through the Zebra Ranch’s razor wire chain link fence. Transcending time and space, the music reaches out into the dark of night like the wisteria vine, looking for free-hearted souls to latch onto and wedge into the foundations of hate, slowly tearing down walls a generation at a time.”

In 23 years, North Mississippi Allstars have released ten acclaimed studio albums, three of which were nominated for Grammy Awards in the Blues Album of the Year category. Luther Dickinson has also garnered another four Grammy Award nominations in various categories as well. They have also shared stages with Robert Plant, Mavis Staples, Patty Griffin, John Hiatt among many others

LITTLE CEASAR AND THE CONSULS  The music of my World (A)
It was Toronto 1956 when a group of five young musicians joined forces and formed what has become the legendary, long-standing “Little Caesar and the Consuls”. They were one of Toronto’s earliest rock and roll bands. Major recording success during the 1960’s landed the band several Canadian hits with “My Girl Sloopy”, “If I Found a New Girl” and the signature hit from Smokey Robinson “You Really Got a Hold on Me”. This opened many doors for the band with appearances with The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, Sonny and Cher, Del Shannon, Lovin’ Spoonful, The Hollies and the Dave Clark Five to name a few. Once in a while you will hear a refreshing new song on the radio that perks you up, lifts your spirits and just makes your day. That’s exactly what we hope will happen when you listen to “The Music of My World” cutting through your speakers. The song is an appealing blend of words and music that will rekindle memories for fans from years past and introduce new listeners to the sound of a band legendary since 1956.

Little Caesar and the Consuls continue to delight audiences wherever they perform and have yet to reach the finish line of their musical journey

MIKE TEARDROP TRIO  Till the dawn (A)
Finally it is time for more Countryfied Rockabilly from Swedens own Mike Teardrop Trio! Their debut album "Hangin' Around" was a great success and put the band on the map, now we are proud to present their sophomore album "Till The Dawn" With a driving Slap-bass, great harmonies and a touch of good ol´Country music in there somewhere they have formed a sound not present in many bands today and it is evident that they fill a void out there.

During the vinter of 2019 they entered the studio here in Enviken/Sweden and started recording new songs, according to the reactions so far it looks like they’ve got a winner! They have picked songs from classic 50’s artists aswell as contemporary bands such as The Barnshakers, Di Maggio Bros and The Nu-Niles, and on top of that we also get 5 original songs. This a very strong album that will appeal to lovers of both Rockabilly and Country. Mike Teardrop had played bass with various bands on the Swedish circuit, although he had all along nurtured a dream to sing and front his own band for some time, so when teaming up with Rasmus Andersson on guitar and Henrik Ulander on drums there were no stopping and his dream come true. And for that we are truly grateful!

We are proud to present their sophomore album "Till The Dawn" that will be released in the US on June 28:th 2019!

JOHNNY WINTER  3rd degree (A)
Johnny Winter is an American music legend. Since his first appearance on the pages of Rolling Stone in 1968, Johnny has epitomized the fiery and flamboyant rock and roll guitar hero. Yet Johnny has continually returned to the blues roots from which his music sprang. Between 1968 and 1980, he cut fifteen albums that define the blues-rock form, ranging from the raw power of Rock and Roll Hoochie Coo to the subtlety of acoustic Delta blues. In 1984 Johnny signed with Alligator Records, where his guitar, vocal and interpretive abilities were given a thriving environment. His three critically acclaimed Alligator releases, two of which received Grammy nominations, solidified Johnny's presence as one of the top blues artists in the world.

Johnny's storied career began when he was fourteen years old. He and keyboard-wizard brother Edgar formed Johnny and the Jammers in their home town of Beaumont, Texas. With their supercharged blues-rock, Johnny and the Jammers became a local phenomenon, winning talent shows and eventually landing a recording contract with the Dart label. Their first single, “Schoolboy Blues,” was released when Johnny was only fifteen. With the exception of a brief stint in Chicago in the early '60s, Johnny was a regular in the Houston and Beaumont recording studios, cutting dozens of tunes as both a leader and sideman. When he wasn't in the studio, he was playing club gigs or sitting in with touring blues artists like B. B. King and Bobby "Blue" Bland and earning a word-of-mouth reputation on the "chitlin' circuit."

In early 1968, Johnny formed a trio with Tommy Shannon on bass (later with Stevie Ray Vaughan's Double Trouble) and Uncle John Turner on drums. In their quest for gigs, the trio was turned down by dozens of clubs, most of which were simply unwilling to hire a hard blues band. Finally, they won a berth at Austin's Vulcan Gas Company. They were drawing good crowds, but the only recording break they could muster was with Bill Josey, a local entrepreneur who cut them on some portable equipment (these tapes later appeared on Imperial Records as The Progressive Blues Experiment). Discouraged, Johnny packed it up and went to England. "We had just cut the sides that Imperial Records would later release on album," he recalls. "I had gone over to England and I had the idea of moving the whole band there. When I came back, an article had come out about me in Rolling Stone, and every major label was phoning."

Johnny soon signed to Columbia in the much publicized "million dollar" deal. (Though the exact figures were never disclosed, Johnny's contract was reputed to be the most lucrative record deal cut up to that time). He was hailed in the national press as America's contender to win back the crown of "guitar king" from Britain's Clapton, Page and Beck. Johnny cut four classic albums with Columbia, including the essential hard rock landmark, Johnny Winter And Live, his best-selling album ever. In 1974 he began a relationship with Blue Sky, a CBS-distributed label founded by manager Steve Paul. Not only did Johnny release four solo albums for Blue Sky, but he was also afforded the opportunity to produce several Muddy Waters albums. Two of those albums, Hard Again and the following Muddy LP, I'm Ready, won Grammy Awards. "Working with Muddy made me feel people were finally realizing that I'm not faking, and can really play blues," Johnny says. ''I felt I'd established myself."

After a four-year recording hiatus, Johnny joined the Alligator Records family in 1984. His desire to record nothing but authentic blues made for a perfect fit. When Johnny released Guitar Slinger later that year, it was widely hailed as his best (and bluesiest) album ever; it charted in both Billboard and Cashbox as well as earning a Grammy nomination. The next year, Johnny followed up Guitar Slinger with Serious Business. The powerhouse album won Johnny his second Grammy nomination with Alligator Records. Third Degree, his final Alligator release, came out in 1986. The album featured several special guests and an array of blues styles. Original blues cohorts, Tommy Shannon and Uncle John "Red" Turner, as well as Mac "Dr. John'' Rebennack, all made guest appearances. Johnny also played two solo acoustic cuts on the National Steel guitar (the first time he'd played the National in the studio since 1977).

Johnny was living his artistic dream, recording nothing but pure blues. Surprisingly, his Alligator albums earned their way onto rock radio and a video for the song “Don't Take Advantage of Me” played on the fledgling MTV network for over six months. But no matter how much commercial success Johnny's Alligator albums received, they never compromised his commitment to his roots. Johnny had returned to the blues

JOHN LINDBERG TRIO  One more Saturday night (S)
Den ständigt turnerande trion med John Lindberg i spetsen släppte senast sin jullåt Count the Days (Christmas Time is coming) i december förra året. Nu är de tillbaka med ny singel som är en försmak av den kommande EP'n A Pile of Rock vol. 2 som släpps 14 juni.

Singeln och tillika covern One More Saturday Night är en tolkning av kultbandet Matchbox som spelade in sin version 1982. John själv fastnade tidigt för låten och var på väg att spela in den redan i 16-års åldern. Då blev det inte av men nu cirka 15 år senare, är det dags och denna gång gör blåsinstrumenten come-back för trion, för första gången sedan debutplattan.

One More Saturday Night drar igång sommaren för JLT som närmast åker på en miniturné i Tyskland där bland annat Schlossgrabenfest i Darmstadt, en festival med 400 000 besökare, står på programmet

JÖNZZONLIGAN  Rösta på Idioter (A)
Den nya punkgenerationen är här och det unga bandet Jönzzonligan har redan hunnit göra stort avtryck med spelningar bl.a. ihop med KSM3 och som speciellt inbjudna att spela på Howlin' Pelles födelsedagsfest.

Jönzzonligan är en trio (såklart!) från Stockholm som bildades hösten 2015 då medlemmarna träffades i skolan, endast 11-12 år gamla. Dom började repa och göra egna låtar direkt och hade vid starten influenser från punkband såsom Ebba Grön, the Clash, Docent Död och KSMB och lite senare även Asta Kask, Descendents och Dead Kennedys.

Till en början hade Jack och Zacharias svårt att hitta en bassist. Men efter flera medlemsbyten så hittade Jack och Zacharias tillslut Vincent. Eller kanske var det tvärtom. Vincent var och skulle se sin bror spela med The Reckless State, och såg att förbandet Jönzzonligan inte hade någon bassist. Efteråt ringde Vincent upp Jack och frågade om han fick vara med och spela bas i bandet. "Är du bra på bas?"frågade Jack. "Jag har hållt i en bas en gång" svarade Vincent. Inga konstigheter tyckte Jack och sa "Bra, du är med!".

Idag den 26 April släpps Jönzzonligans debutplatta "Rösta På Idioter", en sexspårs-EP som klockar in på lite över 9 minuter. Skivan är inspelad på Kapsylen, producerad av Chips K och mixad av Jugglo!Jönzzonligan är: Jack Jönsson - sång, gitarr och trummor Zacharias Adamsson - sång, gitarr och trummor Vincent Elfström - bas och sång

THE CASH BOX KINGS  Hail to the Kings (A)
The Cash Box Kings are bona fide blues royalty. Co-led by real-deal Chicago blues vocalist and songwriter Oscar Wilson and Madison, Wisconsin-based songwriter, harmonica giant and singer Joe Nosek, the band plays masterfully raw and unvarnished houserocking blues. Wilson's huge, gritty vocals and Nosek's powerhouse harmonica fuel their razor-sharp original songs. With their top shelf musicianship and trademark good humor, The Cash Box Kings are a one-of-a-kind blues band. In the words of MOJO magazine, the band is "flawless."

Mixing tough Chicago and Delta blues, jumping proto-rock 'n' roll, and steamrolling "bluesabilly" (their original mix of Chicago blues and Memphis rockabilly), they attack every song they play with contemporary authority and old school authenticity. The extraordinary ensemble playing between Nosek, Wilson, guitarist Billy Flynn, bassist John W. Lauler, drummer Kenny "Beedy Eyes" Smith and their friend, pianist Queen Lee Kenehira, is a true force of nature. The musicians feed off of each other's ideas and energy, effortlessly moving from a lowdown purr to a full throttle roar. According to No Depression, "The Cash Box Kings are a royal hive of raucous houserockers. Whether resurrecting the past or living in the moment, they satisfy your craving for hardcore Chicago blues, served up hot and tasty."

After the tremendous critical and popular response to The Cash Box Kings' 2017 Alligator Records debut, Royal Mint, the band returns with Hail To The Kings!, their tenth career release. Recorded in Chicago and produced by Nosek, the album features 13 songs, including 11 originals written or co-written by Nosek and Wilson. According to Nosek, one of the secret weapons of Hail To The Kings! is Wilson's growth as a songwriter. "He's always brought great originality to the material," says Nosek, "but now he's bursting with songs and ideas." Another weapon is the masterful guitar work of Flynn, who delivers one blistering performance after another. Nosek says, "His guitar playing is a master class on old school blues."

From the hard Chicago sound of Smoked Jowl Blues to the sly humor of Joe, You Ain't From Chicago to the up-to-the-minute text of The Wrong Number to the streetwise Take Anything I Can, the album burns hot from start to finish. Special guest Shemekia Copeland turns the heat up as she joins her friend Oscar Wilson for the mischievous duet, The Wine Talkin' On Bluesman Next Door and Jon Burge Blues, Nosek and Wilson bring socially conscious truth to power, shining a light into some of society's darkest corners. "Blues music is used to transform and to find relief," notes Nosek. "Our songs are all about real life topics that matter—good times, tough times and some bad situations. We'll raise our voices when we have to, and we'll have a good time doing it."

Joe Nosek founded The Cash Box Kings in Madison, Wisconsin in 2001 and, since 2007, has co-led the band with the charismatic, larger-than-life vocalist Oscar Wilson. Over 20 years apart in age and coming from vastly different backgrounds, the two form an unlikely pair, combining Wilson's indisputably authentic South Side Chicago blues vocals with Nosek's dynamic harmonica, songwriting and singing talents. According to Wilson, "The Cash Box Kings are a throwback to the golden age of blues with some kickin' fresh young blood. Joe is my best friend in the music world—the band is a marriage made in heaven for both of us." "Oscar is godfather to my oldest son," says Nosek. "We have each other's backs. We're family." In their first six years, The Cash Box Kings won a large and loyal audience across the Midwest. Wilson joined the group in 2007, bringing with him an instantly commanding stage presence and an authoritative vocal style that gives fire-breathing power to the music. A self-taught musician and singer with an encyclopedic knowledge of almost every blues song known to man, Wilson is a natural-born entertainer and a perfect foil for Nosek and the band. Born in 1953 on Chicago's 43rd Street (aka Muddy Waters Drive), Wilson grew up in the company of many famous blues artists. Junior Wells, Elmore James, Big Smokey Smothers and close family friend David "Honeyboy" Edwards were all regulars at weekly Friday night fish fries/jam sessions at the Wilson home. Throughout his adulthood, Wilson held regular jobs but was always welcome sitting in with Chicago blues mainstays like Melvin Taylor and Johnny B. Moore. His vocal inspirations range from Muddy Waters, B.B. King and Albert King to Jimmy Reed, Jimmy Rogers and Little Walter, but he mostly sings like Oscar Wilson. The Chicago Tribune declared, "Oscar Wilson stands as a dominant figure. He brings a magisterial presence." A self-described blues fanatic, Nosek, born in Wisconsin in 1974 and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, spent his youth soaking up as much blues music as he could hear, both live and on record. In his teens, he began sneaking into blues clubs to watch Junior Wells, James Cotton, Otis Rush, Jimmy Rogers, Sunnyland Slim and others. Nosek recalls, "Seeing those guys made a huge impression on me and propelled me into wanting to learn how to play the blues." He took up harmonica, quickly cultivating his own aggressive, fluid style. After moving to Madison in the early 1990s, he began sitting in with artists such as Clyde Stubblefield and Luther Allison. Finding like-minded musicians hell-bent on playing raw, rough-edged, hard-charging blues, Nosek formed The Cash Box Kings. They released their first album, Live! At The King Club, in 2003, instantly earning praise from critics and fans, and gaining a reputation as one of the hottest live bands on the circuit. With nine previous releases to their credit and hundreds of live performances under their belts, The Cash Box Kings have won widespread acclaim throughout the blues world. Their 2013 release Black Toppin' won the Blues Blast Music Award for Traditional Blues Album of the Year. It was also nominated for a 2014 Blues Music Award (BMA) in the same category. 2015's Holding Court was nominated for two BMA's (Best Traditional Album and Album of the Year) and the band was also nominated for the Band of the Year Award. In 2017, their Alligator debut Royal Mint was named among the Top Ten Blues Albums of the Year by MOJO magazine. The Chicago Tribune said the band plays "unflinching blues distilled to its essence and steeped in tradition." They've been featured on NPR Music as well as in the pages of No Depression, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Living Blues, Blues Music Magazine, Vintage Guitar, Blues Blast and many other publications, and in 2018 were again nominated for a Blues Music Award as Blues Band of the Year. The Cash Box Kings regularly headline Chicago venues like Buddy Guy's Legends, and have played major festivals across the U.S. and Europe. They've blown away audiences at the Chicago Blues Festival, the Tampa Bay Blues Festival, the Doheny Blues Festival, the Mississippi Valley Blues Festival, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, the Cincinnati Blues Festival, the Cambridge Folk Festival (UK), the Moulin Blues Festival (Netherlands), the Lucerne Blues Festival (Switzerland), the Baltic Blues Festival (Germany) and the Edmonton Blues Festival (Canada). They have also performed in Belgium, France, Spain and Uruguay.

With Hail To The Kings! and tour dates scheduled throughout the USA and Europe, The Cash Box Kings have earned their own blues throne and are ready to hold court. They bring an up-to-the-minute urgency to their traditional, tough, fun and gritty blues that brings audiences to their feet night after night. Blues Music Magazine says they are "rollicking, sinewy and superb." Vintage Guitar adds, "They are glorious, with an inspiring eloquence and grace." Blues & Rhythm sums it up best, declaring them, "absolutely brilliant."

ANNIKA ANDERSSON & THE BOILING BLUES BAND  Reborn (A)
Annika Andersson (fd. Salminen) är tillbaka på blues-rockscenen. Med sitt nya band, The Boiling Blues Band, är hon mer än redo att ta tillbaka sin plats i musikens värld. Det nya albumet är döpt till ”Reborn” med albumrelease den 5 april 2019.

På albumet finns allt Annika Andersson samlat på sig under åren; styrka, hårt arbete och ett jävla anamma. Det var inte självklart att Annika skulle tillbaka till scenen. Men när hennes bror Jari skrev en låt till hennes födelsedag, insåg både han och Annika att det är i musikens värld - och på scenen - hon hör hemma. De flesta av låtarna är skrivna av hennes bror Jari (Buck Jones) som själv har en lång och gedigen karriär inom rockabilly. Tillsammans med musiker och producenter i toppklass är albumet inspelat i Park Studion och Studion Dubious med Christoffer Roth och producerat av Gunnar Muvemba Lindström.

THE CASH BOX KINGS  Royal Mint (A)
With deep feeling and top-shelf talent, houserocking blues masters The Cash Box Kings play tough, real deal classic Chicago blues with boundless energy. They also deliver raw, passionate Delta blues, jumping proto-rock 'n' roll, and steamrolling "bluesabilly," their original mix of Chicago blues and Memphis rockabilly. As anyone who has ever been to one of the band's raucous performances will testify, The Cash Box Kings know how to throw a party. They're fueled by the powerhouse harmonica work of Madison, Wisconsin-based songwriter Joe Nosek and the huge, gritty vocals of Chicago bluesman Oscar Wilson. Their original songs range from humorous stories of Internet love to harrowing tales of Chicago's violent gun epidemic. Every song they perform - be it a striking original or a scorching Chess, Sun or Vee-Jay cover - explodes with contemporary authority and radiates old-school authenticity. According to Grammy Award-winning blues legend Charlie Musselwhite, "The Cash Box Kings play with real taste and feel. Not only is it good blues but it's a jumping good time, too! I ain’t lyin'!"

Joe Nosek founded The Cash Box Kings in Madison, Wisconsin in 2001 and, since 2007, has co-led the band with the charismatic, larger-than-life vocalist Oscar Wilson. Over 20 years apart in age and coming from vastly different backgrounds, the two form an unlikely pair, combining Wilson's indisputably authentic inner city Chicago blues vocals with Nosek's harmonica, songwriting and singing talents. The music they create is brilliantly displayed on The Cash Box Kings' Alligator Records debut, Royal Mint. According to Wilson, "The Cash Box Kings is a throwback to the golden age of blues with some kickin' fresh young blood. Joe is my best friend in the music world—the band is a marriage made in heaven for both of us." "Oscar is godfather to my oldest son," says Nosek. "We have each other's backs. We’re family."

Royal Mint features 13 hard-hitting songs, including six impressive originals. From the wry, politically-charged "Build That Wall" to the chilling "Blues For Chi-Raq" to the funny and too true "If You Got A Jealous Woman Facebook Ain't Your Friend" to the timeless versions of songs by Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Junior Wells, Clifton Chenier, Amos Milburn and Jimmy Reed, Royal Mint shuffles, jumps and gets down and dirty, fueled by the band’s unmatched musicianship. According Nosek, "Royal Mint is our strongest album. The band is at its absolute best." Nosek refers to the group of top-notch traditional players who comprise The Cash Box Kings as "a blues collective." Live and on record, members of the "collective" appear in different combinations for different performances, creating an anything-can-happen experience. In addition to co-leaders Nosek and Wilson, the full ensemble includes world-class guitarists Joel Paterson and Billy Flynn, drummers Kenny "Beedy Eyes" Smith and Mark Haines, bassist Brad Ber with newest member Lee Kanehira (replacing their longtime pianist, the late Barrelhouse Chuck) rounding out the band.

In their first six years, The Cash Box Kings won a large and loyal audience across the Midwest. Wilson joined the band in 2007, bringing with him an instantly commanding stage presence and an authoritative vocal style that gives fire-breathing power to the music. A self-taught musician and singer with an encyclopedic knowledge of almost every blues song known to man, Wilson—standing 6'1" and weighing over 300 pounds—is a natural-born entertainer and a perfect foil for Nosek and the band. Born in 1953 on Chicago's 43rd Street (aka Muddy Waters Drive), Wilson grew up in the company of many famous blues artists. Junior Wells, Elmore James, Big Smokey Smothers and close family friend David "Honeyboy" Edwards were all regulars at weekly Friday night fish fries/jam sessions at the Wilson home. Throughout his adulthood, Wilson held regular jobs but was always welcome sitting in with Chicago blues mainstays Melvin Taylor and Johnny B. Moore. His vocal inspirations range from Muddy Waters, B.B. King and Albert King to Jimmy Reed, Jimmy Rogers and Little Walter but he mostly sings like Oscar Wilson. Award-winning harmonica giant and vocalist Rick Estrin (leader of Rick Estrin & The Nightcats) says, "That guy can really sing."

A self-described blues fanatic, Nosek, born in Wisconsin in 1974 and raised in Chicago, spent his youth soaking up as much blues music as he could hear, both live and on record. In his teens, he began sneaking into blues clubs to watch Junior Wells, James Cotton, Otis Rush, Jimmy Rogers, Sunnyland Slim and others. Nosek recalls, "Seeing those guys work made a huge impression on me and propelled me into wanting to learn how to play the blues." He took up harmonica, quickly cultivating his own aggressive, fluid style. After moving to Madison in the early 1990s, he began sitting in with artists such as Clyde Stubblefield and Luther Allison. Finding like-minded musicians hell-bent on playing raw, rough-edged, hard-charging blues, Nosek formed The Cash Box Kings. They released their first album, Live! At The King Club, in 2003, instantly earning praise from critics and fans, and gaining a reputation as one of the hottest live bands on the circuit.

The Cash Box Kings have earned devoted fans in both Chicago and Madison, the two cities where band members live. They regularly headline Chicago venues like Buddy Guy's Legends and Rosa's Lounge, and have played major festivals across the U.S. and Europe. They've blown away audiences at the Chicago Blues Festival, the Tampa Bay Blues Festival, the Doheny Blues Festival, the Mississippi Valley Blues Festival, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, the Cincinnati Blues Festival, the Cambridge Folk Festival (UK), the Moulin Blues Festival (Netherlands), the Lucerne Blues Festival (Switzerland), the Baltic Blues Festival (Germany) and the Edmonton Blues Festival (Canada). They have also performed in Belgium, France, Spain and Uruguay. With eight previous releases to their credit and hundreds of live performances under their belts, The Cash Box Kings have won widespread acclaim throughout the blues world. Their 2013 release Black Toppin' won the 2013 Blues Blast Music Award for Traditional Blues Album of the Year. It was also nominated for a 2014 Blues Music Award in the same category. Their last release, Holding Court, was nominated for two 2016 Blues Music Awards (Best Traditional Album and Album of the Year) and the band was also nominated for the Band of the Year Award. They've been featured on NPR Music as well as in the pages of No Depression, The Chicago Tribune, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Living Blues, Vintage Guitar, Blues Blast and many other publications. Living Blues said, "This accomplished band of musicians captures the vibe of traditional blues and flawlessly spins it in innovative ways." According to Alligator president Bruce Iglauer, The Cash Box Kings are a natural addition to the label. "I love this band because they combine the classic Chicago blues style with contemporary lyrics, true blues vocals and terrific musicianship. Oscar Wilson's voice is a soulful roar like Muddy Waters' and Joe Nosek plays powerhouse harmonica in the James Cotton tradition. Billy Flynn and Joel Paterson are world-class blues guitarists. The whole band can deliver jumping party shuffles or down-in-the-alley gritty blues. Their fresh songs bring wry humor to subjects like current politics, the pitfalls of social networking and life on the tough streets of Chicago." Nosek agrees, saying, "We're very happy about finding a new home with Bruce Iglauer and the good folks at Alligator Records. As blues musicians who grew up in Chicago, becoming a part of the Alligator roster is a great honor for us. It's the label that has released some of our all-time favorite blues records." With blasting harmonica, soul-deep vocals, original songs and sizzling guitars, The Cash Box Kings boast an array of talent to satisfy blues lovers of every shape and size. On Royal Mint they make old blues new as they continue to create new blues classics, with, according to Elmore magazine, "just the right amount of juke joint grit." Living Blues says The Cash Box Kings are “straight from the golden era of the blues,” boasting "an impressive line-up of A-list players. Joe Nosek feels Little Walter and Slim Harpo in the essence of his soul. Singer Oscar Wilson could be right out of [Chicago's famed] Checkerboard Lounge in its glory days. The Cash Box Kings are a dancing and listening pleasure."

FULL BLOWN CHERRY  The Rockabilly Tribute To AC/DC (A)
There’s hard rock. There’s harder rock. And there’s AC/DC. Since the early Seventies, the Aussie icons of swagger have burned up stages and rattled spines with hits like “Highway to Hell” and “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.” Their rude, crude anthems have become basic rock and roll chemistry. Powered by rasping vocals and the evil twin-guitar licks of Angus and Malcolm Young, AC/DC’s music is about gettin’ it on and gettin’ it often. AC/DC proves that real rock may age, but it never grows up.

Rockabilly is the original bad boy music. And the perfect American art form to honor the badder boys from Australia. With twanging guitars, slapping bass and a hammer-hot drum kit, the coolest players around retune AC/DC’s rowdy hits into finger-snapping retro-rock. “Shot Down in Flames,” “Rocker,” and “Heatseeker” are a few of the AC/DC signature head-bangers going full-on rockabilly, played with a whole lotta shakin’ attitude.

For those about to rockabilly, this tribute album is for you

Bec Lavelle reminds us all to never forget where we have come from in her latest single, "Keeping You Up". Recorded in Germany with rising star, Andrei Vesa, the song closes the chapter of her life living in Europe for 8 years.

"I wrote Keeping You Up already knowing that I had made the decision to move back to Australia", says Bec. "I was suddenly overcome with thoughts of how on earth I managed to successfully live and work in a foreign, non-English speaking country for 8 years! It was the ongoing love and support from my family and dear friends who 'kept me up' the whole time ... so, this is my thank you to them".

Bec Lavelle is back with the first of many new tracks for 2019. With two versions available - a pop mix and an AC mix - "Keeping You Up" is certainly one to add to your playlists

THE PRAIRIE DOGZ  
  1. 40 dollars
  2. Don´t remember last night

Years of playing shows, big ups that never last and big downs that seem to. The Prairie Dogz’ experience come through in their writing. Stories of crazy nights and relationships good and bad set against music with country roots and a rock and blues edge.

The Prairie Dogz is a collaboration between Dwight Koenning and Keith Hambrook who ended up playing in an A circuit cover band and found common ground in song writing and musical direction. Dwight’s blues influences can be heard in his vocals while hard rock influences can be heard in Keith’s guitar tracks. The country influences in their music come from growing up and living in prairies of Southern Alberta, Canada.

The Prairie Dogz songs range from ballads that deal with some of life’s most challenging issues, to party songs meant to pack the dance floor at a big saloon. Some songs are all about fun which creates a beautiful contrast against the introspective songs that deal with issues we all face.

The Prairie Dogz music is written to be played live but is perfect for a long stretch of highway or the soundtrack for a well-deserved weekend out of town. The Prairie Dogs are perfect blend of Country, Rock and Blues with lyrics that resonate with everyone.

MATS RONANDER & THE DUSTY RUNNERS  The Bridge (S)
They say that you can tell a lot about a person by the company that they keep. And whilst that is indeed true, it is even more so for musicians. So the fact that Mats Ronander has rubbed creative shoulders, not only home grown legends such as ABBA but has graced the ranks of the likes of Ian Hunter and Graham Parker’s live line-ups, speaks volumes.

Mats has a string of critically and commercially acclaimed albums to his name, particularly in his beloved blues genre but also branching out across any number musical fields. He is a much sought after musician, as his resume shows, and his almost 50 years in the industry has seen him in studios, sessions and on stages and in touring bands across the globe.

Having gathered around him an equally impressive cast of players to form The Dusty Runners, Would You? is an album which mixes slick country grooves, polished blues and approachable rock, all shot through with accessible, soulfulness and infectious vibes. It’s where commercial possibilities meet rootsy traditions, where the sound of the American dream gets dressed up for an even bigger international audience.

At one extreme you have the purer Nashville infused sounds of the Karin Risberg led Nothing’s The Same, a song that just glistens with rhinestones and personal reflection and at the other The Bridge plays with big funky, soulful blues. The title track wanders through some latin inspired beats, Spare Me Some change is a bluesy plea and My World showcases the gospel harmonies which are never very far away from the proceedings.

It’s a fine album, deftly constructed, able to wander across genres yet deliver a consistent overall sound, one where rootsy underground music is taken from the truck stops and downtown blues bars and represented and repackaged for a slicker uptown audience. Purists might prefer their music with the rough edges still in evidence but Ronander’s ability to create such sounds for a much bigger stage is exactly why he has had such a successful career

JOE STRUMMER  Czechoslovak Song / Where Is England (S)
Ignition Records are proud to announce the release of 'Joe Strummer 001,' the first compilation to span Joe Strummer's career outside of his recordings with The Clash. 'Joe Strummer 001' includes fan favourites from his recordings with the 101ers and The Mescaleros, all of his solo albums, soundtrack work and an album of unreleased songs.

All of the formats include tracks that have never appeared anywhere before as well as new remasters. Exclusive to all formats is an album of unreleased material including an early demo of 'This Is England' entitled 'Czechoslovak Song/Where Is England,' a solo demo of 'Letsagetabitarockin' recorded in Elgin Avenue in 1975, outtakes from 'Sid & Nancy' featuring Mick Jones and unreleased songs 'Rose Of Erin,' the biographical and mythical recording 'The Cool Impossible' and 'London Is Burning' one of the last songs Joe recorded. Punk pioneer, singer, songwriter, recording artist, activist, musical and political inspiration for a generation and mighty diamond Joe Strummer was the most charismatic and passionate frontman to emerge from the punk explosion of the late seventies. After Joe's untimely death in December 2002 it was discovered that Joe had been quite an archivist of his own work, having barns full of writings and tapes stored in his back garden. There are now over 20,000 items in the Joe Strummer Archive. The archiving of this material and compiling of 'Joe Strummer 001' was overseen by Joe's widow Luce and Robert Gordon McHarg III. All tracks were restored and mastered by Grammy Award winner Peter J. Moore at the E. Room in Toronto Canada. On going through cassettes and recording tapes it was discov-ered that Joe was rather frugal and keen on hiding tracks. On cassettes he would leave 20 minutes between songs. On the 1" 8 track recordings it was discovered there were hidden tracks superimposed onto each other. For example tracks 1-4 were taken by one song and tracks 5-8 by two other songs which were thought when played back to be caused by tape denigration until the tapes went to Peter J Moore who was able to separate one song from another. The box set has the same content as the CD set and is pressed on audiophile quality 180g vinyl. The box set's accompanying book also included in the Deluxe CD features rarely seen and previously unpublished memorabilia from Joe's personal collection as well as historical press reviews and technical notes about the albums. The cover of all formats is taken from Joe's 1990 Californian driving license. The artwork was curated by Robert Gordon McHarg III who previously worked on the Clash 'Sound System' box set with Paul Simonon, the John Cooper Clarke compilation 'Anthologia' and curated the Black Market Clash Exhibition. Gordon says, "The idea behind the book is that it's an A4 notebook done as if Joe had designed it himself, telling his story. Hopefully it is an insight into his workings and includes hand written lyrics with personal notes and scribbles." 'Joe Strummer 001' will be released on Friday 28th September

WANDA JACKSON  Heart Trouble (A)
Pioneering rockabilly firebrand and country diva Wanda Jackson presents “Heart Trouble”, her first studio album in over 15 years. Featuring duets with Elvis Costello and Rosie Flores and appearances by Dave Alvin, The Cramps, Lee Rocker and more, “Heart Trouble” shows the vivacious Jackson is as fiery as ever on this collection of new songs which reflect her rockabilly, country and gospel roots and revved-up versions of her Rockabilly classics such as “Let’s Have A Party” and “Funnel Of Love.”

Country singer Wanda Jackson was encouraged to try out the new rockabilly style in the mid 50s by her friend Elvis Presley. The result was wild, ferocious rock ‘n’ roll that is still tearing down barriers almost fifty years later. Jackson later made her mark in country music with huge hits including “Right Or Wrong.” Re-issues have introduced her music to whole new generations of fans, who flock to see “The Queen of Rockabilly” tear it up live across Europe and the U.S.

THE NUDE PARTY  Singles Pack (EP)
The members of The Nude Party first came together in the freshman dormitories of Boone, North Carolina’s Appalachian State University in 2012. Patton Magee, and later Austin Brose, linked up with childhood friends Connor Mikita & Alec Castillo and step brothers Shaun Couture & Don Merrill. The following summer, the young men moved into a lake house outside of town to begin learning their respective instruments and jamming on rudimentary riffs. Friends came by the lake house to swim and party and soon there developed a group obsession with performing in the nude. They quickly gained a following as the house band at a notorious Boone party palace referred to as the 505 House, and the bare honesty of their performances was so contagious that their audience also started partying au naturel. While these traditions may appear risqué to the casual observer, the band explains, “These weren't orgies, they weren’t sexual even. It was just kind of a wild exhibitionism that we felt gave us freedom.” Best known around campus as “the naked party band,” this informal aggregation of musicians became a defined unit and chose to call their group simply “The Nude Party.”

Ironically, they began playing fully-clothed as soon as they were christened since their birthday suits were not welcomed in any decent live music establishment. They hit the national tour circuit and soon found a mentor in Black Lips’ drummer, Oakley Munson. He produced their Hot Tub EP and in exchange for cheap rent and physical labor gave The Nude Party a new home deep in the Catskills Mountains. An isolated place to focus entirely on writing music and playing together, and the culmination of six years of experimentation and refinement of material, has resulted in the band’s first full-length

AMERICAN AQUARIUM  Things Change (A)
American Aquariums sjunde album, "Things Change", är ytan tvekan bandet starkaste och mest helgjutna platta hittills. Fronfiguren BJ Barham har utvecklats ytterligare som låtskrivare och sångare. Hans sånger är djupt förankrade i en amerikansk underdog-tradition. Texterna handlar om vanligt, hårt arbetande människor och deras liv och tankar. BJ Narham växte själv upp i "tobacco country" i North Carolina och trots att han tidigt valde musiken framför jordbruket är det ingen tvekan var hans hjärta finns.

De jordnära texterna ingår en perfekt förening med American Aquariums explosiva mix av Southern rock och country. En sorts musik som American Aquarium långt ifrån är ensamma om att göra, men få band gör det bättre!

American Aquarium är ett band som ända sedan starten 2006 har har turnerat praktiskt taget konstant. På gott och ont. Självklart blir man extremt samspelta men det sliter hårt också. Och på "Things Change" är det en helt ny version av American Aquarium vi möter med Shane Boeker på gitarr, Joey Bybee på trummor, Ben Hussey på bas och Adam Kurtz på pedal steel och gitarr. Förutom BJ Barham förstås..

"Things Change spelades in i 3CG Records i Tulsa, Oklahoma och producerades av singer-songwritern John Fulbright. Bland gästerna märks John Moreland och Jamie Lin Wilson.

BJ Barham får slutorden: “As an artist, your goal is for the newest thing you do to be better than the last. You’re slowly whittling away the bullshit to try and get to the truth. With this album, I learned how to cut some of that fat so that it’s just truth. It’s our best record.”
