Re: Rusted Metal (Book) & Heir Apparent - Graceful Inheritance

Would love to get a copy, but the shipping cost is killing me. I hope some European dealer/distro will order qty soon. I hit the same problem with their reissues of TKO & Whizkey Stik, i fancied both but it seems they're without Euro distribution. I couldn't justify the cost of shipping from the U.S.

Re: "Did I hear that right?!"

Listening to Bigfootkit's Tasty comp again, & the fella out of Thundertrain told me to " Eat that comb! " :lol: :lol: :lol: Apparently 'Dirty Water' is a cover of an old '60s song by The Standells, so perhaps it was actually they who originally urged listeners to scoff their grooming impliments. 62...

Re: Neptune - Northern Steel released

Congrats on the new record. Streaming it just now and it's sounding like a logical & natural stylistic progression from your '80's material. A good balance between the here & now and the spirit of yore. Impressive work.

Re: The Heavy Metal Mania - The German HR/HM guide

Blimey, that's quite the labour of love you've unleashed. Huge thanks & much respect for taking on a project of such scope. I've been vocal here on a couple of occassions about my relative ambivalence to the olde German scene, but i'm more than happy to have my assumptions & prejudices proven wrong ...

Re: V/A : Jobcentre Rejects Vol 4 - Ultra Rare FWOSHM 1978-1983

This journalist claims he used the phrase "FIrst Wave of Swedish Heavy Metal" in Creem Metal in the '80s. https://trinkelbonker.wordpress.com/2020/09/21/jobcentre-rejects-4-first-wave-of-swedish-heavy-metal-1978-1983/ Ron Quintana used a similar term in Metal Mania #10, not sure if he was the first...

Re: V/A : Jobcentre Rejects Vol 4 - Ultra Rare FWOSHM 1978-1983

No we don't, that's purely an English expression. So most likely tied to the fact that the label focuses on releasing bands who went nowhere and didn't get signed. It's more accurately a British expression as it's used by us Scots, the Northern Irish & Welsh too, but that's just me being a thin-ski...

Re: V/A : Jobcentre Rejects Vol 4 - Ultra Rare FWOSHM 1978-1983

Do Swedes actually call social security 'the dole', or is that a tie-in with the Jobcentre Rejects theme & a nod to the circumstances most NWoBHM bands were formed in? No we don't, that's purely an English expression. So most likely tied to the fact that the label focuses on releasing bands who wen...

Re: V/A : Jobcentre Rejects Vol 4 - Ultra Rare FWOSHM 1978-1983

Agh.. I should have posted a thread about this release ages ago, so cheers to Kit for stepping in. This is obviously more of a cool mix-tape from the past that the complete-discog HRR type releases and it does the job perfectly, i.e. enhances the listening experience of many releases I wouldn't nor...

Re: V/A : Jobcentre Rejects Vol 4 - Ultra Rare FWOSHM 1978-1983

Some time ago i'd thought about writing a book about the NWoBHM era that focused on the various different social & socio-economic conditions that gave the 'genre' the unique conditions for it to grow in, a wider perspective on the whole landscape, but i just couldn't find a way to make it work. It ...

Excuse my ignorance but who is L.P. Andersson? The owner of this label: https://www.discogs.com/label/1609112-On-The-Dole-Records Ah, i see.

Re: Proto-metal song thread

GINBAE. This shit totally rules. Its like one foot in the lo fi Japanese heavy psych vibe of Flower Travellin Band, Blues Creation, Shinki Chen etc and one foot in Sad Wings/Sin After Sin era Priest I think. Either way really heavy and gnarly for 1976. Whilst i don't think they don't pack quite as ...

Great to see L.P. Andersson's labour of love is getting some international attention! Yours truly might contribute to an upcoming volume. We'll see... :-) Interesting. Contribute in what capacity?

V/A : Jobcentre Rejects Vol 4 - Ultra Rare FWOSHM 1978-1983

Was surprised to see this compilation appear, wonder if it was inspired by the olde '707 inches of Swedish Steel' feature? Hope you copyrighted 'FWOSHM' DaN.
