I posted a recommendation for “Rock Savage” the debut album from Lawless back in July 2013. The band are back with an equally commendable second album entitled “R.I.S.E.” that is released through Escape Music on 21st November. In fact, if anything this album is even more worthy of checking out that their debut. Lawless are most definitely purveyors of that classic rock sound that has its roots in the late 70s and 80s. When band members list their influences as Dio, Y&T, Black Sabbath, Scorpions and Saxon that maybe gives you a feel for what you might expect from “R.I.S.E.”

Y & T returned to Belfast on Wednesday 12th September 2014 playing an almost sold-out show in Limelight 1. Celebrating their 40th anniversary, the band played a fantastic two and a half hour show. I don’t write reviews but you can check out one written by Jonny from Belfast Metalheads - http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/news/blogs/belfast-metalheads-reunited/1717-live-review-40-and-going-strong-y-t-keep-on-rockin-hard.html

I do however take a few videos and took 5 of Y&T and 1 of support band Maverick.

Joe Lynn Turner (JLT), the former Rainbow and Deep Purple vocalist is back with a new band called Rated X. The band also features Carmine Appice on drums, Tony Franklin on bass and Karl Cochran on guitar. Their self titled debut album was released on 7th November through Frontiers Records. (http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/back-stage/music-reviews/1711-ni-rocks-recommends-qrated-xq-by-rated-x.html )

JLT was good enough to answer a few questions that we e-mailed through to him, talking about Rated X and earlier projects such as Mother’s Army, the Hughes Turner Project, Sunstorm and Over The Rainbow.

WHEN Audrey Horne played Belfast as part of the Youngblood tour it is fair to say that the crowd was sparse - yet such was the strength of the performance that word of mouth has been such that nearly 10 times the actual crowd are now claiming to be present.

We, have the photographic evidence showing that several members

Dirty Thrills released their self-titled debut album on 17th November. I must admit I don’t think that I’d heard of the band prior to receipt of the press release from Toxic Area Media; although the band formed in 2012 and seem to have been getting some decent media coverage. With a name like Dirty Thrills I was half expecting a sleaze / glam rock influence when I listened to the album. What I got was a rather pleasant surprise. Dirty Thrills deliver some good old fashioned rock n roll tunes, clearly more influenced by classic rock / blues sounds than by sleaze / glam artists.

"DON'T go changing my favourite songs" croons Spike on 'C'mon' from the 2001 releaser of 'This Is Rock N Roll' and that is exactly what The Quireboys have avoided in their 30 year career.

THEY say that longevity is the key to success, but in the cold, hard world of the music business too often the business men and bean counters want to see instant results.

But, despite once being the 80s flavour of the day for the MTV generation Y&T have proved that hard rock can have endurance, and with

THERE'S something of a feeling amongst a certain vocal minority who sometimes claim there's nothing to do in Northern Ireland if you're a hard rock or metal fan - you know the type, the one's who flock to Sabbath, Slayer, Maiden, Metallica or any of the 'big name' bands.

Yet, over two weeks we and our colleagues saw 21 bands - and had
