Rossington - Gary Rossington, the legendary founding member and guitarist of Lynyrd Skynyrd along with his wife, Dale Krantz-Rossington, whom many call The First Lady of Southern Rock, release the heartfelt, soul-grabbing, bluesy new album Take It On Faith, November 4, 2016 on Loud & Proud Records.  The duo has been making beautiful music together for over 35 years beginning when Dale opened for Skynyrd in ’77 while she was singing with 38 Special, then as part of Rossington Collins Band in the ‘80s and then and now as part of the legendary Lynyrd Skynyrd family.

I don’t post nearly enough recommendations for blues rock / rock and blues albums, though it’s a genre that I’ve always had a soft spot for. Indeed, I’ve had albums by some of the legendary blues artists in my collection for about thirty years. It was great therefore to listen to “Blues Power” and experience modern blues-rock at its best. This is the third album by British trio Absolution and it is released on 30th September via Mighty Music (Target group). The track “Price I Gotta Pay” is included on the Friday NI Rock Show on 30th September.

“Murder And The Motive” is the excellent debut album from Welsh band Those Damn Crows. In fact it’s probably one of the best debut albums you’ll hear this year – in my humble opinion anyway! It’s a shame they’re from Wales rather than Northern Ireland (just kidding guys!), but then again the Welsh do have a good track record for rock bands too! The album was released on 26th September – I played the track “Blink Of An Eye” on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 23rd September.

Swedish rockers Bulletrain released their second album, “What You Fear The Most”, through AOR Heaven on 23rd September. This is the follow up to “Start Talking” which was released in October 2014. I’d posted a recommendation for that album and tracks from it featured on the Shows over the last two years ( http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/back-stage/music-reviews/1705-ni-rocks-recommends-qstart-talkingq-by-bulletrain.html ). I knew then I’d enjoy listening to “What You Fear The Most” and that tracks would be featured on our playlists. I played “Can’t Get Away” on the NI Rocks A-Z Show on 6th September and “Memory Lane” is included on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 23rd September.

Airbourne are one of those bands that seem to draw their fair share of detractors. I’m guessing though that the O’Keeffe brothers couldn’t give a rats arse about their detractors. Personally, I’ve always been a big fan of the band – I’ve all 4 of their albums (and the earlier 8 track EP “Ready To Rock”) and have now witnessed their exuberant live performances in Belfast on 5 occasions; from June 2008 to the most recent in August 2016. Their latest album “Breakin’ Outta Hell” was released on the Spinefarm label on 23rd September. The title track was released as a single in July and was included on the playlist for the Friday NI Rocks Shows on 19th August and 16th September. It was also on the NI Rocks A-Z Show on 12th July. The follow-up single “Rivalry” is included on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 23rd September.

The Friday NI Rocks Show this week has a distinct focus on new releases. There are no 80’s / 90’s classic tracks for a change but still a couple of local bands on the playlist. We have a few tour related tracks as well. The Show kicks off with Thunder following the announcement of 2017 tour dates this week and specifically gigs in Belfast and Dublin. That’s followed by Diamond Head who play Voodoo in Belfast on 23rd September. They’ve just released a video for the track that I’m playing – “All The Reasons You Live”. Brian Tatler was my guest on the Show back in April and we replayed that interview a few weeks ago - http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/interviews/2575-ni-rocks-interview-with-brian-tatler-of-diamond-head.html

rocketship92: Great show!
Alice15: My name is Becky Baxter and I am a 15 year old lead singer with a rock and blues band called Riff Diamond. We are so excited to be appearing at the Oh Yeah Music Centre in Belfast on 15th December 2015 and we were wondering if you could give us some publicity for our upcoming gig. All proceeds are in aid of The National Autistic Society. This is a subject close to my heart as my sister Hannah is diagnosed with Asphergers.
Hannah is a gifted and prolific writer and we, as a band, are honoured to give her a platform to express her views and her perspective on a society with which she can feel out of sync. Such songs as "Masquerade", " Count Me Out"and "Welcome to the End of Forever" encapsulate this.

These songs are among many of Riff Diamond's original material, the bulk of which capture the essence of classic rock and blues artists like Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters and Led Zeppelin and combine them with an original, vibrant and contemporary creativity. Added to this, the band showcases the great guitar skills of Conal O' Donoghue, our 17 year old lead guitarist who made it through to the last 60 auditions out of 1000 entries to Sky Arts Guitar Star. Together with John Mc Nulty rocking it on drums and Shauna Mc Garrity acing it on bass, we are Riff Diamond, a new exciting band which would welcome all your support.
