The Bonfire album “Point Blank” was probably one of my favourite albums of the late 80’s / early 90’s and a copy of it, on a TDK D90, was a constant feature in my cars until I got my first cd-player equipped car about 10 years ago! So reading that former Bonfire vocalist Claus Lessman is part of Phantom 5 and that their debut self-titled album is reminiscent of “Point Blank”; this was one that I was keen to check out. The album “Phantom 5” was released by Frontiers Music on 13th May. The track “All The Way” was included on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 27th May.

There were two things that drew me to the new album from Punky Meadows when I saw the press release from Escape Music – well the involvement of two people really. Firstly, of course, there was the former Angel guitarist himself. Adding to that, the fact that the vocals were provided by Chandler Mogel, made this an album that I was definitely going to check out! One listen to the album was all it took to realise that I wouldn’t be disappointed. The album “Fallen Angel” was released by Escape Music on 20th May.

SOME weeks back at a Vegan Festival in Belfast's Ulster Hall four rock bands were scheduled to play on stage - but given that loud rock, punk and metal is, loud the vegans didn't take too kindly to the volume emanating from the stage.

Thus, Eighty Fourwere asked to leave the stage, and Tusks, Skypilot and Zlatanera were not allowed to entertain the gathered vegetarians, vegans and samplers of craft beers. Their loss...<br

IT may have been 1978 when Magnum released their first album, but in 2016 they have proved that they can still record epic albums and perform live with majestic magnificence; with power and presence as they proved in Belfast's Limelight1 on Friday, 27th May.

Of course, it helps to have the songs that are known and familiar songs that the audience can recall line by line..

Vega released their fourth album “We We Are” on 13th May just a couple of days after starting a three week tour with rock icons Magnum. The tour included a gig in The Limelight in Belfast on 27th May. I’d posted an interview with lead singer Nick Workman in October 2014, following the release of their previous album. I arranged to meet the guys before they went on stage in Belfast to record a short interview and catch up on what has been happening since. I spoke to Nick and guitarist Marcus Thurston.

Ted Poley is of course best known as the frontman for Danger Danger, but just after re-joining the band in 2004 he released a couple of solo albums. Almost a decade later he has just released his third solo album. Entitled “Beyond The Fade”, it was released by Frontiers Music on 13th May. Poley has worked with multi-talented and rather industrious producer / songwriter / musician Alessandro Del Vecchio and song-writing brothers Tom and James Martin from Vega to deliver a very strong album that should appeal to many people. I played the track “Higher” on the NI Rocks A-Z Show on 3rd May.

I had posted a recommendation for SunStrike’s debut album “Rock Your World” back in April 2014, so was looking forward to hearing their new album “Ready II Strike” when it arrived via GerMusica. The album was released on 20th May on the AOR Heaven label and I’ve already played a couple of tracks on Rock Radio NI – “A Piece of the Action” on the NI Rocks A-Z Show on 3rd May and “Angel In My Room” on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 20th May.

rocketship92: Great show!
Alice15: My name is Becky Baxter and I am a 15 year old lead singer with a rock and blues band called Riff Diamond. We are so excited to be appearing at the Oh Yeah Music Centre in Belfast on 15th December 2015 and we were wondering if you could give us some publicity for our upcoming gig. All proceeds are in aid of The National Autistic Society. This is a subject close to my heart as my sister Hannah is diagnosed with Asphergers.
Hannah is a gifted and prolific writer and we, as a band, are honoured to give her a platform to express her views and her perspective on a society with which she can feel out of sync. Such songs as "Masquerade", " Count Me Out"and "Welcome to the End of Forever" encapsulate this.

These songs are among many of Riff Diamond's original material, the bulk of which capture the essence of classic rock and blues artists like Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters and Led Zeppelin and combine them with an original, vibrant and contemporary creativity. Added to this, the band showcases the great guitar skills of Conal O' Donoghue, our 17 year old lead guitarist who made it through to the last 60 auditions out of 1000 entries to Sky Arts Guitar Star. Together with John Mc Nulty rocking it on drums and Shauna Mc Garrity acing it on bass, we are Riff Diamond, a new exciting band which would welcome all your support.
