JUDAS PRIEST - DEFENDERS OF THE FAITH, an early in the year surprise so long ago....
Priest were on a roll when they released this one 33 years ago this week. This album, the incredible Screaming For Vengeance, Point of Entry and British Steel all coming out in less than five years time. Today most bands can't even do once decent album in five years, much less three classics and one near classic! I remember the times well, they were good times, memories of a lifetime! SALUTE!

The Mighty DIRTY WATER RECORDS:
brings you -
Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons
Dirty Rock 'n' Roll
The formidable Pussycat is renowned for prowling the audience whilst the adrenaline fuelled Dirty Johnson boys pound out their infectious blend of punk rock ‘n’ roll. Like all cats they are hard to pin down and have been described as one of the most incendiary live bands in the UK.
Their debut studio LP Exercise Your Demons received many great reviews and, with the high impact raw energy of one of their shows artfully captured by producer Alex McGowan, the eagerly awaited power-packed follow up Dirty Rock ‘n’ Roll graced them with even higher praise from fans and reviewers alike. Containing 11 blistering tracks the trio also bought in the double-bass skills of Phil Bloomberg (of The Polecats) to guest on a couple of numbers!
Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons’ video Trouble With The Devil has received over 40,000 hits and the last three years has seen the band play hundreds of shows, including numerous UK tours and some great festival slots. They’ve played with the likes of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Thee Oh Sees, The Fuzztones, Bad Sin, The Damned, 999, The Polecats, The Creepshow, Bow Wow Wow, The Meteors, The Vibrators, Resurex and The Rezillos, amongst many others.
Currently finishing new material for the eagerly awaited next album, 2016 will see them hitting the roads of the UK again for their Autumn Tour!
With Puss on vocals and guitar, Dirty Jake on guitar and Filfy Antz back on drums (after a two year stint as a T-Rex), this Basingstoke trio create an incredibly tight wall of sound!
Ain’t No Pussy!?! Well that’s for sure!
You Can Be A Fascist Too b/w I'd Like To Meet Your Parents
Dirty Water Records
20 January 2017
Playboy Manbaby is the contradictory soundtrack to the contemporary life experience. Grimly sarcastic yet youthfully nihilistic music that seems to crash into things with a semi-coherent deliberation that can only be generated by a group of frail but over-caffeinated and eternally anxious young adults. Playboy Manbaby is the theme song to the sentiment “what the fuck am I doing with my life?” Indecisive in both message and genre but never lacking in sheer intensity.
The group hail from Phoenix, Arizona and consist of Robbie Pfeffer (vocals), Chris Hudson (bass), TJ Friga (guitar), David Cosme (trumpet), Chad Dennis (drums), and Austin Rickert (sax). Having been a regional powerhouse for over five years with two previously released cassette albums on their own Rubber Brothers label, these lads have have shared the stage with the likes of: Mike Watt & The Missing Men, King Khan & BBQ Show, King Khan & The Shrines, Rocket From The Crypt, Thee Oh Sees, Cosmonauts, The Spits, Black Flag, The Descendents, The Replacements, The Slackers, Teenage Bottlerocket, amongst countless others.
After having just wrapped up the mastering of their long overdue new LP "Don't Let It Be", these desert area DIY-veterans have just released the first single off the album,"You Can Be A Fascist Too" in the run up to the US presidential inauguration on January 20th. Singer Robbie Pfeffer explains, “So, we weren’t supposed to put this out until February, but in light of recent events we feel like every societal catastrophe deserves a proper theme song."
On the B side and in their latest music video “I’d Like To Meet Your Parents,” viewers are forced to watch two lovebirds looking to enjoy a night out at a place presumably called Crapriotti’s or La Doo Doo which serves only the best Rasberry Creme Shasta and Spaghetti ala Ketchup.
“We shot this video in my living room and tried to make it a terrible Italian restaurant,” says Playboy frontman Robbie Pfeffer. “I wanted to make a video where the band is playing but aren’t really an important or central part of it. I didn’t tell the guys what the idea was, I just told them to show up at a certain time and then started yelling at them to paint their faces etc. I’m super glad how it turned out and I think everyone did a great job embracing their characters.”
First "EP" Plus Two Xtra Songs

Dirty Fences offer a satisfying and youthful obsession with early KISS and Motley Crüe, then discovering the fortunate truth of The Dictators and Ramones. Dirty Fences is comprised of Jack Daves (vocals/guitar), Max Roseglass (guitar), Max Comaskey (bass), and Max Hiersteiner (drums) – yes, three Maxes and a Jack – who all met in high school growing up in Boston. One day in woodshop class Hiersteiner sliced the tip of his finger off. While the blood was still oozing out, Daves volunteered to escort him to the hospital. During that little adventure they talked about music and discovered their shared love for rebellious tunes – and they’ve been playing music together ever since.
“You know in Back To The Future where Marty McFly goes on stage and he picks up the guitar and does the Chuck Berry thing for the first time and all the girls go crazy and the guys freak out – we’re like that,” singer Jack says about their live sets. Reviews describe their live show as a “phenomenon”. Vanyaland blog, for example, tells us that “the band was ever-moving across the stage…lifting guitars overhead, bowing in unison and performing semi-choreographed stage moves. Even the drummer was standing at certain points of the set".
Last year saw the release of their second studio album, Full Tramp (Slovenly Recordings) along with an extensive European tour covering six countries – in which the band was robbed of all of its gear and merchandise, during a stop in Rome after playing the Coropuna venue in the Italian capital city. They relayed the news through social media and set up a GoFundMe page, which generated almost $16,000 in just 24 hours! After a short break they were back on the road in the fall with Festival appearances at Meltasia in upstate New York, at Good Vibrations in Austin, Texas and a special seventh anniversary party for Straight To Hell Apparel in Chicago, where they received free jackets, gloves and hats and even modelled them for their website.
They played exclusive local shows during this time including a sold out double header with The Mummies at Music Hall of Williamsburg, a sold out New Year’s Eve performance at Berlin NYC, and sold out performance with Shannon and the Clams at Baby/'s All Right. Around this time, the band got into discussions with Dirty Water Records about releasing two new tracks on wax, '2X2' and 'Sell Your Truth' that ultimately ended up as extra tracks on the reissue of their brilliant debut EP (originally released in 2012). The 12” vinyl will be out in mid-March
FACEOOK'S TICKER - Internet's greatest stalking tool, for YEARS!
Violet Allenby • 5 years ago
the old-old facebook used to give users the option of not having their every click and comment end up in the feed. The current ticker doesn't allow users to opt out.
Worse, there's a bug: If I post something for a certain list, if someone from that list comments, their friends can see the comment on their tickers, click on the comment and see the "locked" post.
If you detest the ticker as much as I do, you can complain at https://www.facebook.com/help/

Dear EMF Stakeholders,
Thank you to those who have watched the newly released five-part Dangers of Wi-Fi series - https://youtu.be/ywZS4vbl9fg?list=PLMAz9ZRXjYmpbGE51zvScTaphFPybdGl2 and asked for information on how to offer it to your local cable stations.
My understanding is it has now been uploaded at TelVue for national distribution, and most cable stations are members. Those in Massachusetts can also access it via Mass Media eXchange (MMX). You can forward the attached flyer to your local cable station and as a resident request that it be considered for airing. There is a link to TelVue and MMX, and for stations that are not members, the YouTube links are also included in the flyer.
It is exciting to see that as of today, 362 people have begun to watch the series on YouTube, I've seen it shared on social media too, and am told cable stations in five states have already picked it up.
I hope you'll agree this is a nice opportunity to think globally and act locally. Can I ask that you drop me a line if your cable station runs it? Please let me know if you have any questions. Feel free to share this with others on your distribution lists.
Warm regards, and thanks for all you do!

WITCHWOOD "Handful of Stars", now available on Lp (11,90 €) and Cd (8,00 €)
One year after the acclaimed debut album "Litanies From The Woods” (2015), Italian 70’s hard rockers Witchwood come back with a new release. “‘Handful Of Stars’ represents an hypothetical band’s cycle as it contains also music based on ideas developed during the recording sessions of ‘Litanies From The Woods’, but left behind because that album was already almost 80 minutes length”, comments mastermind Ricky Dal Pane. “There are 3 unreleased songs and a tribute to two of our favourite bands of all time: ‘Flaming Telepaths’ from Blue Öyster Cult and ‘Rainbow Demon’ from Uriah Heep. We also added an extended version of the song ‘Handful Of Stars’ with a new, previously unreleased intro. This is a very well curated album and it’s full of interesting material, lasting 45 minutes. We are very happy about it and we hope our fans won’t be disappointed”.
Jolly Roger Records are available also from these distributions:

FRANCE: Companies will have to protect employees from electromagnetic waves
A first step for all employees "electrosensibles"
Sophie Pelletier is an engineer and works in a public administration in the center of Paris. For six years she has hardly any working life. Electro diagnosed by doctors, it is now recognized as a disabled worker because his health has continued to deteriorate due to electromagnetic waves: "In the meeting rooms and wifi in the subway and public transportation , Throughout the week I accumulate this exposure which ends up echoing my general state, with great fatigue, and creates me troubles of the heart rhythm, memory and attention that prevent me to return to work When I'm too tired ".
Sophie Pelletier continues the sick leave. She has repeatedly requested that her position and working time be adjusted. But she has always run into the misunderstanding of her employer."It's a disease that does not fit in the boxes," she says, "it's complicated for the employer to arrange a number of things to keep me properly in the job. 'I lost two thirds of my salary for several years and it annoys me because I put a damper on my career, or my health, or both at the same time.
According to estimates, in France there are now nearly 70 000 people who suffer from electrosensitivity.
For an ongoing view into a life of electrosensitivity disabilty, which
the New World Order Governments insists does not exist, see the latest
