JOE BONAMASSA – Royal Tea
Mascot Label Group / Provogue
Release Date – October 23rd

A new album from Joe Bonamassa is generally something to get very excited about – something of a phenomenon in the world of blues and rock guitars in the past 10 years, with his own solo career going stratospheric, as well as a number of collaborations with Beth Hart, the supergroup Black Country Communion, with Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham and Derek Sherinian, and his most recent side-project, The Sleep Eazys, an instrumental tribute to Danny Gatton.

Review by Peter Coates – www.facebook.com/InsideEdgePhotography

Mike Elrington has had what most of us would consider a tumultuous couple of years in his personal life, hence the title Aftershock, and that does not include the impacts of the last 6 months thanks to COVID-19 that any musician living in Victoria would have to be suffering.

Review by Peter Coates – www.facebook.com/InsideEdgePhotography

Matt Pearce is one of the guitarists in high-profile UK classic rock band Voodoo Six, who are about to release their long-awaited new album in October, and before I review that one, having missed out on the London gig for Matt due to COVID-19 in March this year, I wanted to give this one a spin.

Album Review : Revival Black – Step In Line

Review by Peter Coates – www.facebook.com/InsideEdgePhotography

Revival Black are a classic sounding hard rock band, striking out of the cultural heartland that is Liverpool, England sometime in 2018, out of the ashes of Black Cat Bones.

Album Review : THE ROCKET DOLLS – The Art of Disconnect

Review by Peter Coates – www.facebook.com/InsideEdgePhotography

I have had this album on regular play for about a month now thanks to our own Josie O’Toole at Rock People Management, and have found it really hard to get a suitable focus on the content of the record in order to write a coherent review.

This is the Brighton (UK) riff-lords third album in their 12-year history, and got released as a result of a successful crowd-funding campaign that initially fell over due to the Pledge crisis, and got revived through the band’s own web-store – and the album was released in May.

5 Things you might not know about Rude Rum

1.       We love plants

So the whole band is basically vegan! We’ve all been vegetarian for years, and have been slowly phasing towards full vegan. This wasn’t planned by the way haha we just all happened to have that outlook on our diets! Works a treat on tour cause shopping is cheap and we can all eat the same stuff.

Album Review : Massive Wagons – House Of Noise

Review by Peter Coates – www.facebook.com/InsideEdgePhotography

The newest release, their fifth studio album in just over 10 years, from the Lancaster rockers Massive Wagons will be released on 17th July 2020, via Earache Records.  This is another of the NWOCR powerhouse bands who have been laying waste to the UK over the past couple of years with their incendiary brand of ludicrously catchy power-pop rock, punk metal, and the latest offering is again full of crowd-pleasing shoutalong riff-driven songs.
