LUCIFER STAR MACHINE -NEW LINEUP!!

 Lucifer Star Machine are back with a bittersweet vengeance.

 
If you dig hard-hitting, heavy Rock’n’Roll like Motörhead and Zeke, no-nonsense Ramones Punk and rowdy Hardcore a la Poison Idea, you’re in for a treat. Their brand of Violent Rock’n’Roll takes no prisoners and their high energy live shows cement their reputation as a true in-your-face Hardcore Rock ‘n’ Roll act. But it is the segueing of this wanton brutality with their sense for heartfelt and catchy melodies, reminiscent of early Misfits, that makes them truly stand out.
 
The 5-piece was founded in London, UK in 2002 and has since toured several times across Europe, leaving their trail like a serpent in twelve countries, sharing stages with acts like Peter Pan Speedrock, Anti-Nowhere League and Demented Are Go, to name but a few.
 
Lucifer Star Machine’s first single, "Death Baby", came out in 2004 and was produced by Punk Rock legend Rat Scabies of The Damned. After two album releases on various indies, they signed with German label I Sold My Soul Media in 2013, who released their critically acclaimed third full length "Rock’n’Roll Martyrs". The record was lauded for its authenticity and its snotty and unadorned approach.
 
In 2012 founder and band leader Tor Abyss moved back to his home country of Germany, whilst the rest of the band remained in England. Over time the logistics proved to be too difficult, so he decided to give the band a fresh start.
Thus, since Autumn 2014, Lucifer Star Machine is now based in Hamburg, featuring an all-German cast; guys who share Tor’s ass-kicking full throttle take on music and life. The faces have changed; but the legend remains.
The new line up will hit the road and start gigging in January 2015. Get ready for the tattooed white trash bastard sons of the Devil, with their tales about love, pain, death and religious atrocities, as they will unleash Hell upon you once more in a sweaty Rock ‘n’ Roll dive near you. You have been warned!
 
GET LUCIFIED!
 
Lucifer Star Machine is:
 
Tor Abyss: Throat
Rob Bourbon: Guitars
Doc Loocke: Guitars
Ace Invader: Bass
TJ Riot: Drums

BILLY IDOL INSTORE SIGNINGS!

  BILLY IDOL SIGNING

 

Billy Idol visits HMV to celebrate the release of his autobiography ‘Dancing With Myself’ and new album ‘Kings and Queens of The Underground’.

 

When & Where?

 

Mon 27th Oct – 12:30pm – hmv Manchester Arndale

 

Wed 29th Oct – 6:00pm – hmv 363 Oxford Street, London

 

What?

 

Rock legend Billy Idol visits hmv to sign copies of his autobiography ‘Dancing With Myself’ and new album ‘Kings & Queens of The Underground’.

 

Billy’s eagerly anticipated memoir ‘Dancing With Myself’  follows his life from childhood to the present day, including charting his journey from frontman for punk band Generation X to multi-platinum selling solo recording artist. Written alongside his book is Billy’s latest studio album and first record in nearly a decade, entitled ‘Kings & Queens Of The Underground.  Produced by the legendary Trevor Horn CBE with two tracks by Greg Kurstin (SiaKaty Perry), ‘Kings and Queens of The Underground’ sees Billy continue his collaboration with guitarist Steve Stevens.

 

Prior to his musical career, Billy’s time was divided between the London suburbs and Long Island, NY. Eventually settling in London, Billy became a member of the iconic group of young punks known as ‘the Bromley contingent’, which included Siouxsie Sioux and Steve Severin of Siouxsie and The Banshees. It was the Sex Pistols whose music influenced Billy to form Generation X, but he would combine his distinctive fashion and punk attitude with pop sensibilities and a respect for rock greats like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones to create some of the most anthemic and enduring rock music of the new wave era. His groundbreaking music videos were also some of the most innovative and iconic videos ever played on MTV. 

 

Billy will be touring in support of ‘Kings and Queens of The Underground’ including dates in London on 9 November and Manchester on 10 November.

AC DC-ROCK OR BUST-NEW ALBUM!

 NEW AC DC ALBUM!
AC/DC ‘ROCK OR BUST’ AVAILABLE DECEMBER 1
TURNER SPORTS TO PREMIERE NEW TRACK
‘PLAY BALL’ AS PART OF 2014 MLB ON TBS POSTSEASON CAMPAIGN
Columbia Records proudly announces the release of ‘Rock or Bust,’ the highly anticipated new studio album from AC/DC, available December 1, 2014. ‘Rock or Bust’ is the band’s first studio album in six years and features 11 new tracks. ‘Rock or Bust’ follows the immensely successful ‘Black Ice’ album, which debuted at #1 in 31 countries upon its release in 2008 and has gone on to sell nearly 8 million copies worldwide. ‘Rock or Bust’ was recorded in Spring 2014 at Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, BC and finds AC/DC once again working with producer Brendan O’Brien and mixer Mike Fraser. 
Starting September 27, Turner Sports will provide fans a sneak peek of the new track ‘Play Ball’ as part of the 2014 Major League Baseball Postseason campaign. The content will run for several weeks across TBS, the exclusive home to this year’s American League Postseason coverage, as well as leading media brands within the Turner portfolio.
“Rock or Bust” is the first AC/DC album in the band’s 41 year history without founding member Malcolm Young on the recordings. Earlier this year AC/DC released a statement explaining that due to illness, Malcolm would be taking a break from the band. Unfortunately, due to the nature of Malcolm’s condition, he will not be returning to the band. AC/DC will undertake a world tour in support of ‘Rock or Bust’ in 2015. Stevie Young, nephew of founding members Angus and Malcolm Young, plays rhythm guitar on ‘Rock or Bust’ and will accompany the band on tour.

JOHN LYDON SIGNING

 JOHN LYDON

 

John Lydon visits hmv to celebrate the release of his new autobiography ‘Anger Is An Energy: My Life Uncensored”.

 

Where & When?

 

Fri 17th October – 1:00pm – hmv 363 Oxford Street, London

 

Sun 19th October – 2:00pm – hmv Reading

 

What?

 

National treasure John Lydon visits hmv to sign copies of his new autobiography ‘Anger is an energy: My Life Uncensored’. The London event will be strictly limited to 300 fans who gain access by obtaining a wristband with purchase of the book from 9th October.

 

Always outspoken, controversial and sincere, John Lydon, formerly Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols and then lead singer of Public Image Ltd (PiL), looks back on his extraordinary life in a memoir that will be full of surprises, humour and emotion. ‘Anger Is An Energy’ will be a fresh and mature look back on a life full of incident from his beginnings as a sickly child of immigrant Irish parents who grew up in post-war London, to his present status as a vibrant, alternative national hero. John writes “this book is about the life of a risk taker. I make things safe for other people to follow in my wake.”

 

An enduring icon in the British musical landscape across four decades, John has released an array of eclectic records. As the notorious Sex Pistols’ frontman he spearheaded a countercultural movement of  young people from around the world, who were clamouring for change – and found it in the style and attitude of this most unlikely figurehead. His controversial image, songwriting and performance style combined with a razor sharp wit and frank social commentary incited discussion about John in the Houses of Parliament under the Traitors and Treasons Act, which still carries the death penalty. Following the Sex Pistols, John reinvented himself as the founder of experimental outfit PiL, setting in place a blueprint for a band that continues to challenge and thrive in the 2010s. Not content with leading two of the most iconic British bands, John has also collaborated with the likes of Africa Baambaata and Leftfield on innovative dance tracks.

NEW MODEL ARMY FILM

 New Model Army are the subject of a feature film documentary about their history from director and Royal Television  Society Award winner Matt Reid, previously known for his 2 BBC 1 documentaries on The Royal Family, ITV’s The Savoy and Channel 4 ‘The Island” with Bear Grylls. The film covers the band from their inception to the making of “Between Dog and Wolf” and has been chosen to premiere in the UK at Raindance Film festival in London this October. Details of premiere and trailer at

 

www.hustlerstreetfilms.com


"New Model Army is a remarkable band – as hungry and focused as ever, with a continually regenerating audience and insatiable creative ambition…"

 

Synopsis & director’s notes:
New Model Army have been one of the biggest underground
music artists for over quarter of a century. To their global community of fans they mean everything. Yet mainstream success
has so far eluded them. This film is the story of the band and
in particular their charismatic and unconventional lead singer
songwriter and founder Justin Sullivan. His refusal to compromise his principles has meant that his audience has stayed
loyal, and their support has helped the band endure some
difficult moments. This is a very human story of a man who
began life in a liberal Quaker family, yet turned his back on
this and headed to Bradford where he met his muse. He found
like-minded musicians and formed the band which connected
with the mood of anger in Thatcher’s Britain, and quickly rose
to prominence. Then as international success is within their
grasp, the relationship with Justin’s songwriting partner Robb
Heaton founders, and he subsequently dies in tragic circumstances. But It is when the band lose their studio and all their
equipment, that Justin finally comes to terms with the ghosts
of his past and pursues the new radical approach to making
music which results in what many consider the band’s finest
album.
DIRECTORS NOTES:
When I wrote to the lead singer of New Model Army, asking
if I could make a documentary about them, to be honest I
never thought I would hear back. For over 30 years Justin Sul
livan had avoided mainstream media exposure, and even wrote
songs about the evils of television. They also named them
selves after Oliver Cromwell’s crack anti-monarchist troops
and I’d just spent the last 3 years making documentaries on
the British Royal Family for national television. If they were
to make a documentary, I seemed the man least likely to be
allowed to make it.
Yet he did say yes to a meeting, and as we built a rapport it
emerged that Justin is a man more complicated and interest
ing than his public profile might suggest and the irony of my
interest in them was not lost on him.
The film evolved to be the life story of one of Britain’s un
sung geniuses. It is painfully honest and some sense of tragedy
as he looks back on a career where there have been casualties
along the way. Yet through determination and self belief they
emerge stronger as they experience a creative rebirth. I hope
for the viewer it is ultimately uplifting film with an inspiring
denouement
