This show was tough, it went out on 11 Feb 2021 at 7 pm and I had just returned from an overseas trip and was running on very little sleep. It was put together very quickly and started off fittingly with Thin Lizzy’s ‘The Boys Are Back In Town‘. After that it was a few more from the 70’s in the form of ACDC and Bad Company and we were off into the usual TSORR fare.
A highlight for me was Porcupine Tree’s Radioactive Toy, Steven Wilson at his best in my opinion. I also enjoyed the contrast of going from Mastodon to Neil Young. While overseas I saw a most interesting documentary about Suzi Quatro so we listened to her and also to Lita Ford as I have just finished her book Living Like a Runaway. There is some hectic stuff in that book. My view of Tony Iommi took a hit I have to say. I played a track off the new Foo Fighters and another off Too mean to Die, Accepts’ latest album.
All in all, it was a bit different to normal, no SA stuff at all which is a first and only one Aussie band. This wasn’t planned, I just didn’t get a chance to review the show before I went on air so I will fix that next week.
