New Music Tuesday

I literally have stacks of new CDs at home. Some I've purchased, others are promotional releases. I won't even attempt to name all the discs here (honestly, I can't even remember half the bands!) but there are some discs that I'm very excited to own.

It's interesting to hear some of the early L.A. Guns demos that would eventually become monster hits for the band by the late 1980s.

Another exciting new CD is Vixen's Live in Sweden. Judging by the packaging, all the songs were recorded at the most recent Sweden Rock Festival. This disc was just released last week, and I'll be reviewing the effort for both this site and Metal Express Radio.

I've had the new Great White CD for quite some time and have yet to give it a proper listen. Every time I reach for the disc, I'd find myself inclined to review something else or just be in the mood for sleaze instead of blues. Expect my review of Back to the Rhythm in the coming days.

Finally, S.E.X. Department sent me a copy of the self-titled debut. This band is already a Myspace favorite, and their first effort is due next month. While their CD isn't even in the hands of the buying public, the band is already planning a glam tour with artists like Pretty Boy Floyd and Tuff.

As you can see, I'll be busy the next few days. I have high hopes for all these albums.

Allyson, I'm in the same boat, I have a ton of CDs & DVDs to go through and not enough time!

I want that Paul Black's L.A. Guns - Black List album but I haven't really pursued it. I look forward to you review.

I've given up on Vixen, especially after their latest, LIVE & LEARN, was awful. It was hard to review this disc.

The new Great White is very good, a solid comeback.

Yep, it's already been said, but the GW disc is a definate keeper, it doesn't disappoint. Do you have the one with '30 days in the hole' ? It's an OK cover, but I could live without it, except that I always seek out bonus tracks, even if they blow.

hoping that "sex department" was another awesome sleaze band, i went to their myspace page and was gravely disappointed. i haven't heard such a "small" sound come out of a band since the 70's...and the repetitive chorus with the heavy italian accent was mind numbing. i think post-glam is best left to the scandinavians!!

these guys WISH they were crashdiet...

I'M DISAPPOINTED WITH YOU, DEBORELLA. IT'S NOT POST-GLAM - IT'S ONLY TRUE GLAM! I THINK THE REPETITIVE CHORUS WITH STRONG SONGS, STRANGE LOOK AND AUTHENTICAL ROCK'N'ROLL SOUND CAN BE THE POINTS OF FORCE FOR THIS UNKNOW BAND BETWEEN 1000 OTHERS SCANDINAVIAN ROCKERS WITH THE SAME SOUND AND THE SAME LOOK.

well sixx johny, i was around for the 1st wave of glam and believe me this is POST-glam...post meaning "after" the original. example: if grunge made a big comeback it would be called post-grunge...understand?

s.e.x. department has a long way to go before they can be considered contenders for any musical accolades, they sound ridiculous and yes, the scandinavians have this scene all to themselves!

Good fucking shit!
First I thought this was another good band from LA. Makes me feel young again. S.E.X Dept. are the "dirty rocker boys" that horrified moms in the 80's. Trust me...I was there! I am a very hard sell on new bands because I am a TRUE child of the 80's. THANK GOD they opened my eyes...what? There's actually NEW bands that sound like my music???
Rock the fuck on you guys. We're taking over the world again. It's time to sleeze ir up, baby!
I've discovered yet another great band to add to my collection.
Dirty Penny, Gypsy Pistoleros, Rhino Bucket, and now...S.E.X. Dept.
