Beach Boys release new single/album

Hello chaps, Not only have The Beach Boys re-united but they're releasing the first brand new single in 30 years.  


I'm not keen on the title 'That's why God made the radio', Man made the radio maaaaan. However, it's the best sounding achievement post 1970's that they've done. I'm a sucker for those sweet harmonies and it's got a wall of sound vibe, sadly it doesn't seem to be as guitar heavy as i'd have liked.

RIP Davy Jones

I've just heard the sad news that Davy Jones has passed away. He has died of a heart attack aged 66, he grew up in Manchester, same area as my mums family and when I interviewed him last year I found him to be a completely charming and witty individual.  


Here's a link to my in-depth chat I had with him about The Monkees, Head, his solo work and what was then, his future recording. 






RIP Davy Jones 30 December 1945 – 29 February 2012

GDTKC PODCAST- Ch-ch-ch-changes

Well it's been a while and a few things have changed. The first being that 'Wildman' Alex Wild is no longer with us! He isn't dead...yet, but he's gone to 'that london' to find his riches. Replacing him are Andy Davies and 'Slick' Rick Walsh. The format the same, but instead of just posting the podcasts with bands were now posting every weekly show as a podcast!


This show is a bit of a downer as we talk 25th anniversary of Warhol's death, the death of the MC5s Michael Davis, whats going on with Music Copyright and lots more.... Here's a bumper show of over one hour to get you going.

Something Evil Is Going On

Jack White is at it again, this time with Tom Jones. They've just put up a cover of EVIL, the old Howlin Wolf track and it's a interesting cover. With horns, some mean slide guitar, a great honky-tonk piano coming in towards the end.


 Jone's voice fits perfectly in this raw track, he needs to record a whole album with White. I mean seriously, it's mind blowing. I'm going to grab a 7" as soon as it's released on March 19th.

Neil Young and Crazy Horse

Wow, they're back with a bang. A 37 minute performance of an un-named track has been posted on Neil Young's website and it's really haunting, you need to sit back and crank it up. There is a visual element, a p.o.v camera tour around the recording studio as they play back the track. It's fantastic it really is. Neil's vocals don't kick in till 24 minutes into the track.

I suggest you stop reading this and go watch it now! http://www.neilyoung.com/

Jack White to release solo album and record

Yep you heard it right! Jack White is releasing a 7" record in his own name. 'Love Interruption' is available for download now!

Friday, 20 January 2012

Etta James is gone.

The queen of soul died today, in my opinion the best female Rhythm and Blues Soul singer. A real original that won't be replaced by any other. She never got the chance to ''knock Beyonce out'' for singing At Last at Obama's inaugrial ball.

Etta's manager, Lupe De Leon, confirmed that the singer died in Southern California's Riverside Community Hospital from complications of leukemia. Her husband and her sons were by her side.

Just 5 days before her 74th birthday.

R.I.P Etta.

Jones and White get it together.

Wow, were in the thick of it now arn't we. Two posts in under an hour! Yes! Right the news it that two of my favourite artists have got together. Man I loved Tom Jones's last album of blues and Gospel covers 'Praise and Blame.' His cover of Sister Rosetta Tharpe's Strange Things was immense! 

Well now he's gotten together with a real blues hound, Jack White, and their putting out a single on Third Man Records. It's a re-recording of 'Jezebel' with Mr White producing and is promising to be fantastic! I haven't heard it yet, but I can't bloomin' Wait.  

Over and Out

Grinderman Resurrected

Just as your getting used to the fact that Nick Cave's broken up GRINDERMAN, he's just blooming announced a remix album!

This is an interesting concept with the songs from their GRINDERMAN 2 record being remixed by UNKLE, Nick Zinner from Yeah Yeah Yeahs and good old Barry Adamson....You know Barry, right? I'm looking forward to the double vinyl album version (with cd included) as I have yet to get GRINDERMAN 2 on record! I did order it online but the store had run out and decided not to tell me for 2 weeks!

YourTube 4 - Messiahsez

This episode of YourTube is about a guy that's taught me alot about slide guitar on this youtube page, he's like a mountain man, half crazy and up for a jam. He tells you to feel the music and make love to your guitar. He's got a big big beared and a great collection of hats. Most of his stuff is instrumental slide, but its all slightly off the wall and filled with soul.

Aretha Franklin gets engaged

Just a quick note to say that after a new years break GDTKC will be back in a weekly form from next Tuesday, but first we'd like to congratulate that deep soul diva Aretha Franklin on her engagement to her long term friend and partner Willie Wilkerson

Aretha Franklin stated that "We're looking at June or July for our date, and no, I'm not pregnant, LOL!," I've popped under a great song of hers from The Blues Brothers Film. Hope you get a kick out of it.
