This word describes the next transition in human evolution as man ...

Evil Scarecrow van appeal

BANDS are always on seeking fans to pledge to release albums...but Evil Scarecrow want fans to pledge so they can get a new van! Maybe it's the sense of guilt they feel for pulling their Belfast date earlier this year when their previous van broke down...


Anyway they're promising pledgers who contribute will get some goodies. Here's what the band said

I must admit that my knowledge of the band Angel was fairly limited before being sent “Old Habits Die Hard”, the new album by their singer Frank Dimino; prior its release by Frontiers Records on 10th July. I certainly knew of the band, but doubt that I could have named more than a couple of tracks. As the band’s heyday was in the 70’s rather than 80’s or early 90’s that’s not unexpected! I therefore wasn’t quite sure what to expect from “Old Habits Die Hard” when I listened to it for the first time. As you’re reading an album recommendation, needless to say it meets with my approval! I’ve already played “Never Again” and “Rockin In The City” on the Friday NI Rocks Show and more will follow.

THERE was a time when the only music forms tackling political issues (small-p) were the hippies of the sixties and the punks of the late seventies. With all but a few exceptions they have fallen off their pedestals or become too old to rattle the establishment any longer.

If you ever hear someone whinging about how rock is dead and there are no good new bands anymore, please feel free to lean over and give them a slap! Or alternatively point them in the direction of Northern Ireland. Maybe it’s something in the water, or maybe in the beer and whiskey, but we do produce some great rock n roll bands! The latest album that you should add to your collection is the second release from the Screaming Eagles. “Stand Up and Be Counted” was released through Off Yer Rocka Records on 13th July. Add that to other releases, in just the first six months of this year, by The Answer, Trucker Diablo, Gasoline Outlaws, Sinocence and Midnight Transmission (to name a few) plus upcoming releases from Stormzone and “Million Dollar Reload” (presuming that a new band emerges and releases the album that was recorded) and I reckon there’s no arguing that rock is alive and living very happily in our wee country. Rock bands these days may not be making millions, or even thousands (unfortunately for them), but they do make great music!

Even if you know the album inside and out ...
