Album Review : FM – Synchronized

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

Released May 22nd 2020 – Frontiers Records

It is always a joy to get to hear a new FM album…….from the very first listen to that first FM record Indiscreet in 1986, having been a fan of Wildlife before then, and seeing them as the ultimate AOR support band over the next couple of years, including the epic Astoria show in 1987 with White Sister as the opening act.

Album Review : Thirteen Stars – Finest Ramshackle Jam

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

Release Date June 19th 2020 (Off Yer Rocka Recordings)

Thirteen Stars are a Southern Rock band with a bluesy/country swing all the way from the West Coast of Cumbria.  Finest Ramshackle Jam is an album that I have found really hard to categorise – not that I really want to pigeonhole any artist – from a band than spans the whole spectrum from bluegrass through country to soul, grunge and then flat out southern rock.  The common thread running across the whole thing is the rough gruff vocal delivery of main man Hoss Thompson who founded the band back in 2009, and in fact wrote, sang and played all the instruments on the 2010 debut release!

Album Review : Vega – Grit Your Teeth

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

Album Release Date 12th June 2020 (Frontiers)
VEGA have been a favourite of mine for a few years now, having picked up their first album Kiss of Life around 10 years ago, and also having known singer Nick Workman from previous band Kick.  Always melodic, with a touch of modern nu-metal edge that set them a little apart from the crowd, they have released a handful of albums now, and have played with the likes of FM, Magnum, Dan Reed Network and Skid Row, and are due to be out supporting H.E.A.T. on their UK Tour in October which will be a cracking match of hard-edged melodic rock.
