    Hawkwind? I have the whole collection, but I am looking for a CD of 'It is the Business of the Future to be Dangerous' to replace the tape version that I have.

    Ahem!! ::8:

    Get yer arses over to The Copperhouse in Hayle on 31st August and sample some home grown musos rockin' out with classic rock from Led Zep right up to the Foo's and much more in between.

    A sample can be found at www.myspace.com/hvhighvoltage We cover many bands from 4 decades including, Quo, Lizzy, Floyd, Primal Scream, U2, ZZ Top, Stereophonics, Feeder, Green Day to name a few.

    It would be good to see the place packed again and anyone who saw us at Lafrowda will have a good idea of what to expect. ::13:

    ps You know me,never one to miss a plug opportunity!!!!! ::15:

    Hi Evo,
    Pokerboy I know sends his regards...and also humble apoligies...as he couldn't make it to your gig I believe it was the 4th July ( I maybe wrong) but he was promoted at work..and as always (a new promotion change of hours)
    sadly he couldn't make it...

    This is where you SHOULD be plugging your next gig....!!
    always love to hear where LOCAL bands etc are playing...its up to the members if they attend or not...
    I know this website may not be known to all...but it is growing very fast....and word of mouth is by no means the best advertising around.
    so good luck and I for one hope you have a good turn out!... ::15: ::15:

    Humble Apologies but Floyd and Led Zep are the only two that appeal from the list of your repertoire,
    but good to hear a plug for local talent, I wish you well. ::15:

    Hey to quote you Treeve, each to their own, we do however find that once we start the show people tend to stick around and enjoy the whole thing really, you should give it a go, you may like it, ha, ha.

    @ Sparky,
    No problem and thanks for the reply, no need for the apologies either, if everyone came to a gig that said they would we would have a full house each time. We just want as many people to enjoy what we do as possible.

    Here IS a blast from the past. Just found the re-issue of Sounds Incorporated first album (1964). POW!! Unique band, although there were a few others at that time with similar aspirations they were 'one-hit-wonders'. If you have never heard them your audio cognisance receptors are truly missing something badly. Punching, rhythms, powerful sounds, exploring classical, jazz, rock, cool. To be honest, I wondered if it would be a glossy memory, but they are as fresh and full of life as ever. Blows your sawks awff, matey.

    Was listening to a bit of Judas Priest last night. 'Beyond the Realms of Death' (live version obviously) is a classic song. It's this type of song I like in particular - slow start, builds in the middle and then completely rocks out at the end - yeah!

    'Freebird' is another, and of course, 'Comfortably Numb' (live, not studio) is unbeatable, as another two examples.

    Anyone got any suggestions that follow this theme they'd like to recommend? Proper rock or metal - no cheesy mock rock ballads please!

    This is going to be an 'endless list'.
    OK here is one to give anyone a Lift.
    Aerosmith ... Love in an Elevator.
    Janie's got a Gun
    and
    Walk this Way [with Run DMC]

    The stunning Liv Tyler is fathered by the Steven,
    Now that is the best thing to come out of that Tea Party.

    How much Metal do you want? :D
    Gong ... the album You, contains one of the most inspired pieces of music ever. A Sprinkling of Clouds
    also
    Mike Oldfield with Tubular Bells

    Then there is The Laughing Policeman; Well he is a copper :D

    Tubular Bells - good album, but not heavy enough for what I'm after.

    I'll also throw in Iron Maiden's 'The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner' as another example.

    I know ... but a play on 'metal'? :D

    Anyway ... you quote Comfortably Numb .... :D

    You want heavy? Iron Maiden and Judas Priest are a bunch of Nuns.

    I beg to differ, Sir!

    I'll admit not all of Maiden's and Priest's output is good, but I defy anyone not to whip out their air guitar on hearing 'Beyond the Realms of Death at volume!

    Let's get Heavy.

    Have you tried Gotthard ... Dial Hard opens with the amazing Higher followed by Mountain Mama ... it gets more frenetic ...
    Here Comes the Heat ....

    if only I could play like Leo Leoni.

    Ah .... Gong/Tubular Bells/Copper - all metal. Brain must have been in neutral last night as I didn't pick up on it!

    Not heard of Gotthard - is their album 'Dial Hard' about Bruce Willis? ::11:

    If you want to break away from those
    lightweights, try Sweet Noise.
    Voice and instruments stretched to the ultimate.
    A wall of sound.
    Love and Hate wrapped in barbed wire.
    Total emotion.
    Pounding driving rhythm.
    Screams from the soul.
    End of The Century
    Ghetto
    Revolta ....
    but first I suggest ....
    The Triptic, not only clears out cobwebs,
    it removes plaster and leaves spiders in blissful stupour.

    http://www.sweetnoise.org/main.php

    Heavy Metal, really heavy, hard rock - put your head in a meat grinder stuff .... YaaaH !!!!! You won't find any singalongaheadbanger there.
