Soundgarden – By Crooked Steps (2013)

Soundgarden have released a video for the track ‘By Crooked Steps’ from last year’s King Animal album.

Whilst the song is impressive, the really interesting thing about the video is that it was directed by Dave Grohl. Never the one to shy away from work, Dave turned his hand to the video after feeling the track was one of the stand-out tracks when he first heard the album.

With a small injection of humour seen in Foo Fighters videos, the track features a Segway chase, live performance in a bar, and a police arrest which reminded me of the brilliant Blues Brothers. Check it out below. Continue reading

NEWST3D – Metal EP (2013)

Newstead-metal-ep-coverJason Newsted is the longest-serving bassist with Metallica – from 1986 before 1987’s the $5.98 EP until 2001 resigning just before the band entered the studio to record what would become St. Anger.

In addition to Metallica, he was also previously a member of Voivod, Flotsam & Jetsam and Echobrain amongst others before taking a seemingly indefinite break. Last month he announced his return to the music scene.

Apparently his desire to return to the music stage was ignited by his appearances performing with Metallica at their 30th Anniversary shows in late 2011. It is reported the reaction of fans and the buzz he felt caused him to go on to form the band Newsted (or stylistically NEWST3D) with Jesus Mendez Jr. and Jesse Farnsworth on drums and guitar. A few days ago the band released their first music, the Metal EP.

Led Zeppelin – Celebration Day (2012)

“Good Times Bad Times”, “Black Dog”, “In My Time of Dying”, “No Quarter”, “Dazed and Confused”, “Stairway to Heaven”, “The Song Remains The Same”, “Kashmir”, “Whole Lotta Love”. It is quite a legacy.

It is no wonder then that with such a top calibre selection of songs both fans and Promoters have wanted the band to reform time and time again. Led Zeppelin have always said “No.” Until one day in 2007 they announced for one night only they were reforming along with Jason, their late drummer John Bonham’s son, to play a tribute show for Ahmet Ertegun the founder of Atlantic Records who had died the previous year.

Most will remember the frantic scrabble to get tickets, the ballot system put in place and the millions from around the world who tried to get briefs for the show; myself included. I was unlucky. Five years later the unlucky ones finally get to see the show and those who got the ‘golden’ tickets get a gorgeous reminder with Celebration Day which documents the show in full. Continue reading

Rage Against The Machine – Know Your Enemy @ Finsbury Park 2010

In 2009 there was an organised campaign to get Rage Against The Machine’s 1992 single ‘Killing In The Name’ to the top of the charts ahead of the usual annual X Factor release to become Christmas Number One.

This was an extremely successful and well run campaign which not only succeeded but gave all the profits from selling the single to the homeless charity Shelter. As a thank you, RATM played a free gig in Finsbury Park, London that following summer. Of course, I just had to be there and unbelievably it is already two years ago past in June, since they played the free concert.

The band have been very quiet ever since that summer, but are about to release the 20th Anniversary Edition of their self-titled debut album. There are many goodies on this release which we will review in full once we have it. However ahead of this the band have issued a video clip included in the deluxe edition which just happens to be ‘Know Your Enemy’ live from the famous 2010 Finsbury Park celebration concert.
