Week 7 - Monday 26th August 2019
Hello & welcome to week 7 of our blog!!
You’ve got to fight for your right to party. So said the Beastie Boys & we agree. In fact, we agreed so much we decided to get some merch out there. This week we bring you…THE BEASTIE BOYS!
"On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair , Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light" …. Name that tune.
I’m always a bit of a sucker for a great news story that combines more than one of our roster at once & this fits that mould perfectly. Liam Gallagher has released the music video for ‘One Of Us’, which has been created by two of the primary filmmakers behind Peaky Blinders — check it out.
The former Beady Eye and Oasis frontman is set to release his new album, ‘Why Me? Why Not’ on September 20 and ‘One Of Us’ is the fourth single to be released from the album so far after ‘Shockwave’, ‘The River’ and ‘Once.’
Thomas Shelby MP is making waves in parliament, and attracting some attention... It’s back – Series 5 of Peaky Blinders is back on TV. Did you watch it? Did you like it? I did. MEGA!!!

If I were you, I would 'cos they’re HOT!!
Holiday in Cambodia, a masterclass in atmospherics. The opening 20 seconds of rattling bass and sparse, echoing guitar create a mood of musical paranoia that ratchets up several notches with the introduction of the drums, playing a frantic discoesque beat, and a guitar riff that brings to mind Dick Dale playing on as the Titanic slips under the water. The band was one of the defining hardcore punk bands – PURE CLASS!!!
QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE
QOTSA is an American rock band formed in 1996 in Palm Desert, California. The band's line-up includes founder Josh Homme (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Troy Van Leeuwen (guitar, lap steel, keyboard, percussion, backing vocals), Michael Shuman (bass guitar, keyboard, backing vocals), Dean Fertita (keyboards, guitar, percussion, backing vocals), and Jon Theodore (drums, percussion). Formed after the dissolution of Homme's previous band, Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age developed a style of riff-oriented, heavy rock music. Their sound has since evolved to incorporate a variety of different styles and influences, most notably including collaborations with Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan and Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl.
Bob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, author, and visual artist who has been a major figure in popular culture for six decades Dylan has been described as one of the most influential figures of the 20th century, musically and culturally. He was included in the Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century, where he was called "master poet, caustic social critic and intrepid, guiding spirit of the counterculture generation." In 2008, the Pulitzer Prize jury awarded him a special citation for "his profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power." President Barack Obama said of Dylan in 2012, "There is not a bigger giant in the history of American music." For 20 years, academics lobbied the Swedish Academy to give Dylan the Nobel Prize in Literature. He received the award in 2016, making Dylan the first musician to be awarded the Literature Prize.
