The Mighty Kingsnakes ? Long Gone



Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:22:34
Size: 51,62 MB

United States

BIOGRAPHY

The Mighty Kingsnakes are a four piece blues boogie band covering some of the greats of the blues world playing their toe tapping blues around the local watering holes in Newcastle Some of the great blues bands that this band covers are The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Bondi Cigars, Johnny Winter, Eric Clapton & Cream, Little Charlie and The Nite to name a few. The gang delivers a powerhouse performance on time every time, drawing from a combined industry experience of over 120 years.

The bands combination of some old age and treachery combined with youthful enthusiasm ensures any venue a fantastic night of rhythm and blues. Whether its lazy Sunday afternoon or a hard edged Friday night The Mighty Kingsnakes can accommodate any venue drawing from many styles of blues and swing. Catch The Mighty Kingsnakes at a venue near you for a show to be remembered!

The Snakes are:

Mark Bresnahan – Vocals/Harp

Mark has fronted many bands during the last 20 years, including; Serious Business, Crawling Kingsnakes, Melting Pot & Loose Bazooka.
Always an engaging front man, Mark delivers a strong vocal performance which is backed up by his tuneful blues harp playing and good natured interaction with the audience. He draws from the influences of Kim Wilson (Fabulous Thunderbirds), Stevie Ray Vaughan and Dr Feelgood.

Jed Browne – Bass/Vocals

Jed has appeared in a number of local bands over the years, and continues to hold it down with his passion and solid sense of groove. He enjoys using fine equipment, and likes to escape from the world as we know it by performing.

Nick Croft – Guitar/Vocals

Nick has been in a great number of memorable local acts, spanning almost 30 years. His reputation as a guitar slinger precedes him, and he doesn’t disappoint. He has played with; Rat Salad, Bo Diddley, The Groove, Leroy and the Rats, In the Red, Amsterjam, and Tangleweeve; and has recorded with most of those as well as with The Mix and John Paul Young.

Grub – Skins

Grub has been a fixture on the local and national scene for longer than many of us cares to remember. He has played with the legendary Rat Salad who toured nationally backing Bo Diddley, as well as Leroy and the Rats, and countless other outfits. He loves pounding the skins and fiddling about with knobs on the side….. (on the mixing desk) His solid drumming and energetic nature add an exciting element to the rumbling Mighty Kingsnakes engine.

Warren “Pig” Morgan – Keys/Vocals

Pig is somewhat of an Australian music icon. Firstly, as a founding member of “Chain” which evolved out of W.A. in the late 60’s and went on to become one of Australia’s most memorable blues acts. Eventually he left chain and was replaced by Matt Taylor. Then, in 1970 Pig joined Melbourne’s “Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs” – Sunbury days. When the Aztecs folded in late 1974, he went on to tour with Stevie Wright and another two members of the Easybeats; George Young and Harry Vanda. Further Stevie Wright tours involved The All Star Band which had evolved from previous members, including Pig. John Paul Young was a support act at the time, but went on to perform with The All Star Band, which is still going today. Pig has also performed and toured with; Billy Thorpe, Slim Dusty, Pete Wells and Ian Moss, as well as composing and recording songs for Chain, The Aztecs, John Paul Young, Daryl Braithwaite and Sherbet, and recording with Flash and the Pan and Ted Mulray. He has also recorded two personal CDs since moving to Lake Macquarie in 1988.

The “Snakes” cocktail of youthful enthusiasm and a dash of treachery ensures an extraordinary experience of grinding rhythm and blues, on a sunny Sunday arvo gig, or a hard edged Fri/Sat night, make no mistake, The Mighty Kingsnakes will rock you!

Netherlands

Album Notes

At the age of 13 somebody gave me Jimi Hendrix's "Are You Experienced" album and from then on I was a Blues devotee tells Julian Sas. One of my father's friends had a huge collection of blues albums. Through him I got to know other guitarists like Rory Gallagher, Alvin Lee, Freddy King, Elmore James and Peter Green. I was totally impressed and as soon as I could afford it, got myself an electric guitar. Three months later I started my first band. Playing guitar enriched my life. At last I was able to express my feelings.

Asked about influences, Sas replies; when I hear Jeff Beck play it starts to itch. He plays with such simplicity and at the same time with such fanaticism. Unbelievable. I am a real Jimi Hendrix fan too. He has not yet been surpassed. Stevie Ray Vaughan I think is fantastic, but the difference between him and Jimi is that if you were to hear him every night you will notice there are only minor differences in his playing. Whilst Jimi could be stumbling over his strings one night and the next night be so brilliant that you would seriously consider selling all your gear. Jimi knew no boundaries. When he was doing Hey Joe, his mind was already busy with totally different things. What he wanted to do with Miles Davis I think is fascinating. I am a real Miles Davis fan. He is the Jimi of the Jazz world. When I was just 16 I saw Buddy Guy. He played with great dynamics. Dynamics, in my opinion, are one of the most important tools in music; a quiet song with a strong bridge or a loud song with a very quiet bridge. And of course Rory Gallagher, my greatest hero. I had the privilege and honour of playing with his band 3 times. The Allman Brothers Band is fantastic too. Once they get started, there is no stopping them. Just like us.

Artists:

Pär Grebacken - baritone saxophone
Knock-Out Greg - vocals, harmonica

Fredrik Gustafsson - piano

Knock-out Greg and his mates recorded this CD in 98, their 3rd CD. Being a touring band, they rarely get the time they deserve in the studio, however, this probably being the first time they are being heard as good! Their style mixes retro jump blues with true Chicago sounds, a la Little Walter and Howling Wolf. Greg's harp playing certainly stands the test as he is firing away one solo after the other and the singing is distinct! This band is one of the hottest in Scandinavia and deserves a listen everywhere else. I do hope their latest, Wig-Flipper, makes it to the worldwide market as this band just gets better and better! Even the cold Swedes can play the blues!! (Bergman Jonas)

Album Notes

My name is Julian. I was born on a river in 1970 in a small town in the center of the Netherlands called Beneden-Leeuwen. Since I was born I have been a restless person, This is something that I still have today. Only until I was 6 years old I knew where this was coming from; I saw this movie called the Toronto rock 'n roll festival. There I saw Jerry lee lewis and Chuck Berry. From that day on I knew what I was going to be In my life I wanted to make music. I was hooked as a little child on what I felt when I saw this movie, it was Jerry lees immense energy and maybe more important for my future I saw Chuck's guitar.

My mother saw that I dreamed and talked only about guitars from that day on. So they gave me little toyguitars and stuff like that but I kept dreaming about the real thing. By the time I was 10 I was into bands like Motorhead and AC/DC, Judas priest and Iron Maiden and more heavy stuff. Loud guitars and big Marshall amps and again a lot of energy. They saw me listening to music that most children of my age weren't doing at that time so I started again about a real guitar and when I was about 12 years old I got one an Ibanez les paul copy which I still have today.

With a guitar comes an amplifier so they gave me this 30 watt Yamaha where I could practice with. I started to listen to anything I could lay my hands on, and this is something that I still do today. I have never had no musical schooling so this is for me the only way to learn music. By listening and playing you start to know how things work. A friend of mine taught me some basic chords and a few scales and something about where to put your fingers and that was it. The rest was up to me. By the time I was 13 I heard something that really got me deep emotionally and his name was Muddy Waters. From that day on I decided to dedicate my life to blues and bluesrock.

When I was not in school I played guitar, I kinda locked myself in my room to become what I wanted. The guitar became and still is an obsession for me. I'm a very quiet guy in fact and this instrument really gave me the chance to express my feelings. When I was 17 years old it was 1987 and that was great year for me because I met a girl who is now my wife; someone who knows what drives me in being a musician and understand what music means to me. And it was the first time I saw Rory Gallagher. He shocked my world big time. That was what I was going to be. I started a band and two years later I quit school, because we had a lot of gigs and becoming a history teacher was not my thing.

I must have had a thousand jobs and a lot of jams and bands and duo's but by the time I was 26 I started this band called Julian Sas Band. We got a record deal and the first album was called 'Where will it end!?'. And that my friends is still the story today, when it is up to me we got along time coming, because we really love what we do. For me being a musician is all about freedom and doing what you really love. I am fortunate to be in such a position but then again I worked hard for it and still work hard for it because nothing in life comes easy.

So this is my story. I want to tell you that for me playing music is something I try to do until the day I will lay my guitar down and I will meet the great spirits in the sky. I will always write songs about loneliness and oppression and being free out on the road. Music still comforts my ever restless soul. Which after all these years is still inside of me...

Asked about influences, when I hear Jeff Beck play it starts to itch. He plays with such simplicity and at the same time with such fanaticism. Unbelieveable. I am a real Jimi Hendrix fan too. He has not yet been surpassed. Stevie Ray Vaughan I think is fantastic, but the difference between him and Jimi is that if you were to hear him every night you will notice there are only minor differences in his playing. Whilst Jimi could be stumbling over his strings one night and the next night be so brilliant that you would seriously consider selling all your gear. Jimi knew no boundaries.

The Hollywood Blue Flames 2006 Road To Rio




Genre: Blues
Rate: 192 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:56:36
Size: 159,96 MB

United States

Album Notes

DISC ONE: Brand new recordings by the Blue Flames featuring Kirk "Eli" Fletcher on guitar, a guest appearance by Kim Wilson on harp, plus three bonus tracks with Junior Watson!

2ND BONUS DISC: Includes never before released vintage live recordings of the original Hollywood Fats Band from '79-'80 - their first new release in over 30 years!!! Also features special guests Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson and Roy Brown, plus a rare vocal performance by the one and only Michael "Hollywood Fats" Mann on the song " Nasty Boogie Woogie ".

The Hollywood Blue Flames emerged from the smoldering embers of The Hollywood Fats Band, arguably the best young blues band to come out of the 1970s, led by guitar phenomenon Michael “Hollywood Fats” Mann. Along with bassist Larry Taylor (fresh from Canned Heat), drummer Richard Innes (ex-Rod Piazza), Lloyd Glenn protégé Fred Kaplan on piano, and featuring the multi-talented Al Blake on harmonica and vocals, Hollywood Fats almost single-handedly ignited a traditional blues revival that still echoes loudly to this day. Whenever you hear the warm retro sounds of classic Chicago blues coupled with a swinging rhythm section and tasty-but-nasty guitar, you’re hearing the legacy of the Hollywood Fats Band. Sadly, Fats passed away unexpectedly in 1986, and the band members all went on to other successful musical ventures.

Their 2005 reunion release “Soul Sanctuary” on Delta Groove – with acclaimed young blues guitarist Kirk Fletcher ably filling the shoes of Fats - earned universal rave reviews. Their new Delta Groove release “Road To Rio” picks up without skipping a beat, and includes several very welcome extras: two previously un-recorded songs co-written by Hollywood Fats and Al Blake that point in a roots-rock direction the band was just beginning to explore before Fats’ untimely passing; collaborations with fellow West Coast blues guitar pioneer Junior Watson, and Fabulous Thunderbirds frontman Kim Wilson; and an entire CD of previously un-released vintage live performances by Hollywood Fats in his prime, including guest appearances by Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, and legendary blues shouter Roy Brown!

The Hollywood Blue Flames / Hollywood Fats Band music contained on “Road To Rio” and “Larger Than Life” stands on its own as some of the most enjoyable blues and roots music to be released in recent memory, but with the inclusion of the previously unheard live recordings, it’s also an important and historic document of musical geniuses whose likes we will not see again.

Album Notes

"Tribute To Hendrix", the latest disc for Swedish blues/rock heavy guitar legend CLAS YNGSTROM (founder & leader of SKY HIGH), is an awesome "musical tribute" to the father of heavy guitar, JIMI HENDRIX. Recorded live in Stockholm, Sweden in March - 2003, "Tribute To Hendrix" features 10 trax of mind-bending, intense, breath taking, tremendously organic, retro-70's bluesy heavy guitar power trio riffage from one of the best "hendrixy" guitarists in the world. Recorded exclusively for GROOVEYARD RECORDS, a new label dedicated to outstanding TOTAL GUITAR from around the globe.

On "Tribute To Hendrix", CLAS "SKY HIGH" YNGSTROM digs deep into the "outskirts of infinity" and grooves heavily through an awesome set of classic killer HENDRIX jams with his outstanding trio, complete with a super-sonic way-kool "BAND OF GYPSIES" vibe. The CLAS YNGSTROM TRIO effortlessly "rip & tear" through all the familiar HENDRIX musical territory with CLAS YNGSTROM laying down the heavy guitar law and legitimately paying tribute to "THE MAN" HENDRIX). Clas Yngstrom gets down hard on every track throughout the "Tribute To Hendrix" disc and his guitar playing is pure rock genius. He reaches levels on the guitar that most guitarists could never attain in a lifetime of playing.

The CLAS YNGSTROM TRIO: "tribute to hendrix" disc is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to fans of JIMI HENDRIX and all his awesome musical sonic splendor, and to fans of SKY HIGH, ROBIN TROWER, FRANK MARINO, ERIC GALES, RANDY HANSEN, ERIC JOHNSON, MICHAEL LANDAU, etc. including fans of any killer top-shelf "over-the-top" hendrixy heavy guitar music that surrounds us.

"Tribute To Hendrix" is phat and sassy, featuring a mountain of mind-blowing Hendrixy improvisational fury. "Tribute To Hendrix" is a timeless, profound piece of heavy guitar history from one of the best Hendrix-inspired guitarists in the world or, in this case, the "third stone from the sun." Somewhere beyond the "outskirts of infinity" JIMI is smiling.

Long live the musical spirit of JIMI HENDRIX.

Ron Hacker & The Hacksaws 2003 Burnin'


Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:45:43
Size: 104,86 MB

United States

It's the second Ron Hacker & the Hacksaws album in about as many years, following the Shad Harris-distinguished Back Door Man in late 2000, and it shows even further development of Ron Hacker's relentless and relentlessly authentic driving blues.

How authentic? Hacker covers Elmore James, Robert Johnson, Fred McDowell, Yank Rachel and Sonny Boy Williamson. He lays down the fine original title track instrumental (you can hear the flame) and the autobiographical Mailman Blues and Prison Mind.

If you don't get wood from Billy Gibbons' Fool for Your Stockings or Yank Rachel's Peach Tree Blues you've got something wrong with your apparatus. This latest version by Ron of Fred McDowell's Red Cross Store is his best and the best anywhere, and Hacker's band's groove on Sonny Boy Williamson's Welfare Store is unparalleled.

That's Stranger Blues you're hearing (if your browser works like ours).

That band consists of Artis "A.J." Joyce on bass and Ronnie Smith on drums. That's all they need, that and the driving electric guitar of Ron Hacker. (http://www.sfblues.net)

Trampled Under Foot 2008 May I Be Excused


Genre: Blues

United States

The people of Blue Edge Records have a reason to be proud, one of the record labels’ bands won the prestigious INTERNATIONAL BLUES CHALLENGE 2008 and they want the world to know that. ‘Trampled Under Foot’ were the winners of a three day Blues contest held this year in Memphis Tennessee. 99 bands from 6 continents participated, 10 different countries and 36 states! All 99 bands competed for the title of ‘Best Blues Band in The World’. Before participating they had to go through local pre-selections. ‘TUF’ was already enchanted to win the latter in their home base Kansas City. ‘Trampled Under Foot’ are Nick Schnebelen (vocals & guitar), Danielle Schnebelen (vocals & bass) and Kris Schnebelen (vocals & drums). As you can read, it’s one musical family but with an extra particularity, both guitar players are left handed.

Danielle is the female member of this family band and is cherished as a ‘treasure’ in their hometown of Kansas City. Early on she played with ‘Fresh Brew’ and ‘The Nortons” before forming a band with her brothers Nick and Kris. Listening to this album, it’s easy to understand why they won the contest. ‘May I Be Excused’ contains 12 tracks and they are all very different. The complete specter of Blues styles gets covered.

Danielle is well known on the Blues scene and their friends on MySpace comprise, just to name a few, Tommy Castro, Janiva Magness, Tad Robinson, Sean Carney, and Kenny Wayne Sheppard. Influences of for instance Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd are never far away and can be noticed in the opening number ‘Fog’.

As the title suggests ‘Johnny Cheat’ clearly contains a Canned Heat beat and rocks all the way. The third number ‘Love My Baby’ is West Coast and swings firmly. In ‘You’re Too Big To Carry’, we get Delta slide, and in the title track ‘May I Be Excused’, they change completely into a pure tearjerker.

No lack of variation on this album with ‘Hot Headed Woman’ being a true boogie. Next to last title ‘Mississippi River’, is a Texas slow blues in which Danielle allows her vocal chords free play. Every track brings us different Blues segments and on the crossroads ‘Coming Home To You’ we hear Country blues with at the end, Gospel influences.

A great variety and alternating vocals by brothers and sister is a great receipt to collect awards. Keep ‘bluesin’ that road… (Rootsville.Be)
