Luminous Uriah Heep

Posted: February 17, 2018 in Classic Rock, Cool stuff, General

Not sure about the source of this, but you are looking at a Limited Edition (500 copies) Uriah Heep six track Vinyl titled “Gold From The Byron Era”. If you hold the Vinyl against a light source, it will self luminate. I kind of like that.

Awesome Tex Willer

Posted: February 17, 2018 in Comics, Cool stuff, General

Enjoyed this big format Tex Willer album (issue 36) from Finland this morning. 226 pages in black/white. There is no competition out there really these days – Tex Willer rules!

Duccess 75

From Heritage Railway magazine (UK), we get Duccess 75. A special edition about Duchess 75, Britains most powerful Steam Locomotive. And it sure is a thing of beauty.

That thing could be on any Heavy Metal album cover.

I Want It All

Well look at this. Queen has got their own Monopoly set, and it certainly looks like good fun to me.

Watch Brian May open a box here.

Good week for fans of Purple, this (Rock Candy 6) being the second major feature on the band to pop up from UK rock media. Six pages of MK4 gives you some insight to what went down in 1975-1976, although it has to be said that many quotes are quite familiar if you have a bit of a collection going. Having said that it is still an OK go at this and then there is certainly plenty of good stuff elsewhere with other great bands within these pages to please fans for sure (100% nostalgia guaranteed).

Of course, Purple´s eight year career was put to rest in 1976 (for the time being). Legend still intact after all. And I would say, growing…

Legend-S news

Posted: February 16, 2018 in Babymetal, Classic Rock, General

News exploded three hours ago in Japan that the TV Channel WOWOW will air parts of the famous Babymetal Legend-S weekend that were performed in Hiroshima in December (see earlier posts). WOWOW has aired several Babymetal shows before, or parts of them, and on March 31 they will go with Legend-S. My guess is that we are talking about a 60 minute edition, but you never know. Bootleggers will probably go to town with this outside of Japan, so I have to believe that Babymetal will release the Legend-S show (hopefully, in complete form) on DVD themselves. Yes, Yuimetal was not there, but this is a classic moment in the history of Babymetal (think coverage in Kerrang! etc). Also, would they really just let this be aired on television and lose out on decent revenue? They did spend a fortune on those nights. If Legend-S is what is coming up next in 2018, I for one will be quite happy with that. On the other hand, we still have to see official release of “Live At Wembley” and “Live At Tokyo Dome” (on DVD) outside of Japan, so all out logic is not to be expected here is it? To be continued…
