Another band to see live if you can…high energy frontman backed by a classy hard rocking band.

Voodoo Vegas have released a brand new music video ‘Tied Up’.


For fans of hard rock, this is a foot to the floor track that oozes groove, swagger and plenty of melody, ‘Tied Up’ is some of the band’s best work yet and by all accounts “you ain’t see nothing yet” according to frontman Lawrence Case:

“The two tracks (Tied Up and Hypnotise) are both very good indicators of where Voodoo Vegas are going. Essentially this a prelude as to what happens next but doesn’t give the game away.”

Voodoo Vegas play live as special guests to former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke on his UK tour this December.

The new EP ‘Hypnotise’ is out this Monday 12th October.


Super Six – 6 Players Stoke City Could Loan Out

Posted in Uncategorized on October 8, 2015 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake:

An excellent Stoke City blog and an interesting look at our possible stars of tomorrow. For the first time in years Stoke City have a decent youth set-up and some genuine prospects.

Originally posted on Four Two Three One Stoke:

The Football League structure is going from strength to strength, with the quality and competition improving each season. Put simply, it’s probably the best it has ever been.

With the transfer window closed and the emergency loan window open, we’ve already started seeing some players move out to get regular game time. Dion Teixeira has gone to Fleetwood Town, whilst at lower levels we’ve seen Oli Roberts move to Tamworth and Dom Kurasik to Stafford Rangers, whilst Dale Eve is currently at Forest Green Rovers.

So who else from Stoke’s squad could benefit from a loan move for regular game time? We take a look at six possible candidates…

Jakob Haugaard – Goalkeeper


What’s His Situation?

Very little has been seen of Haugaard since a frankly incredible debut performance against Everton in the Asia Trophy. An appearance against Wrexham’s mixture of U21 and first teamers yielded a clean sheet for the…

First album of all new ELO music in over a decade. Jeff Lynne’s ELO release their new album, ‘Alone In The Universe’ on November 13th, 2015 on Columbia Records. The album is available globally for pre-order Friday, September 25th (buy links listed below) and the first single “When I Was a Boy” is also available Friday. Fans who preorder the album will receive “When I Was A Boy” instantly.

Jeff Lynne: “Music is such a powerful force in our lives. A good song can make people feel much less alone in this universe. And trying to create one of those songs somehow makes me feel less alone too. My whole life-from being that kid with a dream in Birmingham right until today-proves how much music can do.”

Ashley Newton, President of Columbia Records: “Jeff Lynne is a total master of his craft and ‘Alone In The Universe’ is pure pop perfection. We are thrilled to be involved in the return of ELO and enormously proud to be releasing this contemporary classic on Columbia Records.”

The new Queensryche album is rather good…

Posted in Heavy metal, Music for 2015, Prog metal with tags , , , , , on October 7, 2015 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

Queensryche are back with one of their strongest albums in many years. ‘Human Condition’ is the second album to feature former Crimson Glory vocalist Todd La Torre and he really makes an impression on this album.

Former vocalist Geoff Tate’s Operation: Mindchrime released their new album ‘The Key’ recently, which I like but not as much as this one.

‘Guardian’ is the second song to get the video treatment by the band…

The Jokers new video for ‘Run For Cover’

Posted in Classic rock, Get Ready To Rock!, Music for 2015, hard rock with tags , , , , on October 7, 2015 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

The Jokers return with album number three, ‘Hurricane’ which is released by SPV on October 16th. A whiff of a Who riff on this song, a damn fine tune!

Go see them live as they are well worth seeing and if you like your rock with a 70’s flavouring of Bad Company, Free and Thin Lizzy this band will be right up your street.

Lonely Robot ‘The Boy In The Radio’ :-)

Posted in Progressive rock, Pop rock, Music for 2015 with tags , , , , , , on October 7, 2015 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

Proof that prog music can be played on Radio 2, well if they listened to this it would be ;-)

Features Go West’s Peter Cox in a cameo and of course he sings on this song.

Lonely Robot play London’s Scala on December 20th.

John Mitchell (It Bites/Arena), the man behind Lonely Robot, has confirmed a second album is in the works. The debut album ‘Please Come Home’ was released earlier this year on Inside Out and is one of my top 10 albums of the year.

The Dunwells are back with a new song ‘Hey Now’

Posted in Folk rock, Get Ready To Rock!, Music for 2015, Pop rock, Singer songwriter with tags , on September 29, 2015 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

Good to see the Dunwells still coming up with great music. This new song, ‘Hey Now’ is a taster from their new album due early neat year. Reminds me a bit of Crowded House and the Temperance Movement’s Phil Campbell. They are on tour in November:

Nov 01 King Tuts Glasgow, United Kingdom

Nov 02 Belgrave Music Hall Leeds, United Kingdom

Nov 03 Gullivers Manchester, United Kingdom

Nov 07 Diamond Lounge Doncaster, United Kingdom

Nov 09 Sebright Arms London, United Kingdom
