2014

@TTM_Tweets Phil Campbell talks about Glasgow 2014, singles, new songs, tours and tour buses

We caught up with singer Phil Campbell of The Temperance Movement on the eve of their UK Tour. Phil was in fine form and didn’t shy away from sharing his opinion on matters which have been subject of much controversy over the past few weeks.

Our chat began by talking about living in his hometown, the city of Glasgow, and something which has touched the hearts of all Glaswegian’s recently. The impact hosting this years 20th Commonwealth Games is having on the city’s landscape and Phil expresses what most have felt about the future demolition of the Red Road flats.

Not only do The Temperance Movement kick-off their UK Tour today [21st April 2014], but they also release a new single ‘Take It Back’.

The decision to release the single is discussed as well as the Picture Disc release on vinyl of two Brit Pop tracks recorded at Abbey Road Studios in February – part of Record Store Day celebrations at the weekend.

The Temperance Movement have just completed a tour of mainland Europe and the feeling you get from listening to Phil is that they are very much looking forward to getting back in front of UK fans once again. 2013 was a big year for the group and by all accounts they are ready to push on in 2014; solidify their fanbase and treat new fans to their own brand of gutsy, no-nonsense rock ‘n’ roll.

It sounds as though we’ll be treated to a few new songs on this tour. Make sure you get out and see one of the most talked about UK rock bands in recent years.

Here’s the interview, which includes Phil’s take on the reliability of last year’s tour transportation. Enjoy.

Hi there!

Got some blistering tracks for you this week. Lots of requests to get though of course, plus I’m gonna crank it up just a tad by throwing down some Fu Manchu, Nirvana, Church Of Misery and Orange Goblin just to get it hard ‘n’ sweaty.

Be sure to join in with the chat and comment on our Facebook Group during the ‘live’ broadcast from 7pm tonight ~ www.facebook.com/groups/theclassicrockshow

Ready then?

This is how we did it last week! The Classic Rock Show’s Jan 9 playlist

Good afternoon everyone!

As you can see, last week’s show was made up from old-school ’70s classics and music that brought you right up to the present day…even tracks from forthcoming releases. All in all, it made for another musically varied evening. Tracks that I had originally planned to play but simply couldn’t squeeze in, will be played out on this week’s show.

I’d like to thank you all again for listening in and contributing comments and your memories of gigs/albums etc from the bands we played. The three hours just flew by!

As some of you are aware already, we have opened up this week’s ‘Request-line’. This will close at 10pm [GMT] on Tuesday 14th January. I’m liking what I’m seeing asked for already. You can add your request by either tweeting @classicrockshow or by visiting one of the Facebook links which you’ll find listed below.

Cheers!

John McCoy and MJ

Mr John McCoy [ex #Gillan #Mammoth #GMT #Samson] is ‘The Classic Rock Show’ studio guest on 30th January

On Thursday 30th January, I’ll be joined in the studio by Mr John McCoy [ex Zzebra, Samson, Gillan, GMT, Mammoth].

John has been a regular contributor to the show; indeed, last year we got together to chat about his music career. You can still catch the two-part interview via our Mixcloud stream (see link below), so it’s a real treat for me to welcome him to the studio.

Amongst the usual mayhem that has become the norm over the past four years on a Thursday night, John’s tales of rock ‘n’ roll’s jolly japes will be interspersed with a healthy scattering of some choice of tunes which he has chosen to share with you.

Share this event on your Facebook Timeline and invite all fellow rockers along for this rather special show, more details of which will be announced soon.

In the meantime, make this a date in your diary that’s not to be missed….as it’s a date not to be missed!!

Thursday, 30th January at 7pm GMT…no pun intended ;-)

Cheers!

MJx
