Its that time of year again folks - I'm looking back on how many gigs I've managed to attend throughout the year! Last year I did it out of curiosity & this year I just want to know how close i got to last year's stats!
In my eyes Stig is easily one of the best UNdressed men in rock - on & off the stage!
In the magazine interview the statement is made that "The 70s Australian scene is so fucking unknown outside the country" - I couldn't agree more, and to be honest as time goes on & dance music takes over the radio & TV it's almost unknown in THIS COUNTRY!
The Space Man's combination of rock and intergalactic wonder is without a doubt one of the coolest mash ups known to man!
Those of you who know me through gigs, online & random meetings would know that more often than not I come across as some kind of "overly sexual old dude loving dork who loves to swear". To be fair this description is pretty accurate and to be honest it takes a lot to make me blush.
I can't go on without discussing the whole reason for our return to the USA - Psycho Las Vegas! What a crazy 3 days of amazing bands, booze & all out debauchery. The lineup was amazing & the atmosphere was electric. Between the excitement of the crowd & the bands that were playing it was hard to find anyone without a smile (or a stoned grin).
Although Vegas is an amazing destination we wouldn't have planned another trip to The States if it wasn't for the absolutely incredible line-up of Psycho LV which spans across the last weekend of August at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino off the strip.
Of course I love Slade's music; so soooooo many great songs, but what I love above all is the legendary Dave Hill's outrageous looks!
If you haven't figured it out yet I take great pleasure in beautiful people, beautiful art & beautiful music so when it all comes together I get hooked! Women of all shapes and sizes are beautiful & I love when album artwork adores women the way I feel they should be.
It's easy to believe every LA band of the 80s probably had the same dilemma - "To assless chaps or not to assless chaps?"- a question that for most would need considerable thought, especially for the band member who drew the short straw! How many squats were you going to need to do? well, based on all the pics I've seen - none...ever! There's nothing like a skinny guy with long hair strutting around with his teeny tiny bottom on display.
