NEWS: A veritable cacophony of sounds and vibes on Thursday’s show

wpid-img_20141127_121828.jpgIt always feels a little bit strange coming back to do a show after a week off. That said, the time away has given me a chance to listen through a few new albums and promos that have been sent in to ‘The Classic Rock Show’ studio over the past couple of weeks or so.

Consequently, a veritable cacophony of sounds and vibes has been playlisted for your aural pleasure this Thursday from 7pm (UK time).

2014-12-08 17.16.18

We’ve got Blackberry Smoke’s new single ‘Let Me Help You (Find The Door)’ which will be on their next album ‘Holding All The Roses’ to released on Monday, 9th February 2015.

Rival Sons, a band that are on top of their game right now, are currently touring the UK, so we’ll have something from ‘Great Western Valkyrie’ and also a track from their support band Blues Pills who are fast becoming a force to be reckoned with too.

Joe Bonamassa has a rather bluesy Christmas song called ‘Lonesome Christmas’ which we’ll hear.

Norwich-based symphonic metallers Nocturna released their debut video last week. ‘Revelations’, taken from their forthcoming 2015 EP ‘Lucidity’, is to get its first airing on rock radio.

Bernie Tormé has a new album out titled ‘Flowers and Dirt’ which sounds just amazing – Bernie is in top form. I’ll be playing something off of that and also giving away the album on CD to a lucky listener!

Lots to look forward to, including all of your fab requests which have been sent in this week…Classic Rock as it should be played!

Join us this Thursday, 11th December, from 7pm (GMT). ‘Roll Call’ is at 9pm. Show ends at 10pm.

INTERVIEW (audio): Matt and Dhani of The Treatment

If there was ever a band that mixed youthful exuberance with kiss-ass rock ‘n’ roll riffage, then The Treatment have certainly nailed it. With two albums well and truly under their belts, numerous tours, including big name support slots such as Aerosmith, Kiss, Thin Lizzy, Steel Panther, Alice Cooper and Motley Crue, they’ve watched, listened and learned from the very best…and boy, have they picked up on it all!

treatmentThe ‘Second Bite’ tour – promoting their stunning 2014 ‘Running With The Dogs’ album – is now drawing to a close. It’s been a tour which has seen this young band draw upon all their experiences; delivering unquestionably their most polished performances to date.

We sat down with Matt Jones (vocals) and Dhani Mansworth (drums) backstage at The Waterfront Studios in Norwich and talked about the album, their new ‘look’ and their latest video release ‘The Outlaw’.

You can listen to our interview here:

Following our homage to the 70s, The Classic Rock Show is back with another ‘Special’, this time we’re taking you back to the 80s.

Tonight, we begin our quest to showcase some of the very best rock music from the 80s. But we just couldn’t squeeze a whole decade of great music into one three-hour show. So we decided to break it up into ten, yes ten, ‘Specials’…’80 through to ’89!! These will go to air over the coming months.

Our Facebook Group will be the usual place to get all the chat and comment during the show: www.facebook.com/groups/theclassicrockshow

John Garcia to release his solo album!

John Garcia is set to release his solo album John Garcia on August 4th in the UK on Napalm Records!  John recently completed work on the first video from the album for the song “My Mind” and The Classic Rock Show will be discussing all this and much more with John very soon.

With ‘Vista Chino’, Garcia makes music very close to his ‘Kyuss’ roots, but on his self-titled solo album he also ventures out with some experiments and convinces all along the line. This record is full of first-class, catchy rock numbers that commute equally between Classic Rock and concise Stoner elements.

Once you’ve made contact and started ingesting the tracks ‘My Mind’ or ‘5000 Miles’, you will see this album is spreading like an infection to the body and one is happy to be involved in the short and crisp ‘Saddleback’ or  ‘Confusion’, which is strongly rooted in Blues. ‘Her Bullets Energy’ is the next ultra-bouncer on the record, with the legendary Robby Krieger (The Doors) on the guitar. John Garcia has delivered a multi-faceted and extremely intense solo album that will stir up more dust than a sandstorm in the California desert. Danko Jones, Tom Brayton, Mark Diamond and also Garcia’s old cohort of Kyuss, Nick Oliveri show up as guest musicians to round out this solo masterpiece.

A preview clip of the entire album can be viewed below.

‘John Garcia’ is available on CD, Vinyl and Digitally on Napalm Records on August 4, 2014 – pre-order here.

Keep an eye out for the interview with John.
