Welcome to episode 21 of Season 6. The show went out on Rebel Rock Radio on 25 May 2023.  It was pre-recorded as I was away in a wonderful little town called Sedgefield somewhere along the Garden Route in the Western Cape.  I listened in and chatted to the people and it was a very cool show.  We kicked off with Orange Goblin, they made their TSORR debut with ‘Save Me From Myself’.  I will be playing much more Orange Goblin in the future, Ben Ward and the lads know how to rock.  From there it was all slash-and-burn up-tempo stuff like Jørn, L.A. Guns and Ace Frehley with ‘In Pursuit of Rock ‘n’ Roll.

I had a great chat with Justin VR and it was really interesting to talk to him.  We took a listen to his brand new single ‘She Said’.  Justin is described as country alt-rock so we stayed in a related area and checked out a guy who is new to me followed by a guy who is definitely not new to me.  I am talking Jelly Roll and Kid Rock respectively.  After that, we needed a bit of metal so Exodus and Gojira were called into the ring to break some heads.

Near the end of the show, we checked out some interesting cover songs, Longview, which is a Bily Joe Armstrong side project, and Chris Cornell with a very interesting mix-up of the lyrics from Metallica and U2 in his version of the U2 track ‘One’.  Chris committed suicide on 18 May 2017, this track was recorded in 2015.  RIP Chris, you are missed.

This week’s Immortals track was provided by one of my favourite bands ever The Stranglers.  We checked out [7:58] of the final track of their debut album Rattus Norvegicus.  JJ Burnell and Dave Greenfield are superb throughout.  For the Ultimate Challenge, we had a look at 2011 and the four albums chosen were Chickenfoot – III, Foo Fighters – Wasting Light, Sixx A.M. – This Is Gonna Hurt, and Five Finger Death Punch.  It was a toss-up between Foo Fighters and Chickenfoot.
