Episode 46 of Season 5 aired on Rebel Rock radio at 7 pm on 17 Nov 2022. The show started a bit differently for a change. Instead of the usual full-throttle Rock ‘n’ Roll we eased in with the classic ‘Judas’ version of Bob Dylan’s brilliant ‘Like a Rolling Stone’. From there we went with ‘Squealer’, one of the early ACDC tracks off Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap. It was decided that if you could have a night on the town with one of the dead rock stars then Bon Scott would be a seriously good guy to pick. From there some Black Spiders off Sons of the North and then off to Aussie for a band called Catelano, the track was ‘Saturday Night’, cool track, good times.
We checked out some Texas Hippie Coalition and a track called ‘Pissed Off and Mad About It’ and that morphed into a bit of Chickenfoot. Joe Satriani showed once again just how brilliant he is when he is in a kick-ass band. Def Leppard went down well with a track called ‘All We Need’ off their latest album Diamond Star Halos. It went a bit soft with Courtney Love and Hole not shouting and smashing things so I fixed that with Zakk Wylde, Buckcherry, Overkill, and Parkway Drive. For a change, we played a track by Ghost called ‘Twenties’ and then had three in a row while I had to take care of some work stuff, the joys of running a factory on night shift . The three were from Motörhead, The Dead Daisies, and Sons of Liberty, out of Bristol in the UK nogal.
We checked out the new Rebel Rock Jingle kindly recorded by Prawn of Diverted Disorder and then we took a listen to ‘Destroyed by Fate’ (Feat Jared Gunston) by Diverted Disorder. The Color Blew with Liaan Horton on vocals and Timothy James on guitar kept the SA music flag high with a track called ‘O.D’. From there it was four serious rock tracks from Devils Train, Badlands, Iron Allies, and Skid Row. The new Skid Row, The Gang’s All Here is so good, its heading for a top ten finish for TSORR best albums of 2022. Last week we missed the Punk section so I fixed it this week with Stiff Little Fingers and The Clash and then we played ‘Ain’t It Fun’, the classic written by the guys in Rocket From The Tomb but who went off to record it in The Dead Boys and then later the definitive version done by G’n’R, this version is live and right on the edge, if you don’t get it, it’s not for you as Billy Connelly once said. It was fitting to go to Neil Young with ‘Powderfinger’ and then Johnathan Martins’s amazing cover of Neil’s ‘Cortez the Killer’. The wheels came off at the end where I lost the plot and had a mirth attack about Sakis Tolis and we finished loud with My Chemical Romance and Slipknot.
