CHUCK BERRY TO PLAY CAMDEN JAZZ CAFE!

CHUCK BERRY, ROCK & ROLL GUITAR LEGEND, TO PLAY TWO INTIMATE SHOWS AT THE JAZZ CAFÉ, NOVEMBER 08

"If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck
Berry’." John Lennon

Chuck Berry’s music has transcended generations. He earns respect to this day because he is truly an entertainer. Known as "The Father of Rock & Roll", Berry gained success by watching the audience’s reaction and playing accordingly and putting his listeners’ amusement above all else. For this reason, tunes like "Johnny B. Goode," "Maybellene" and "Memphis" have become anthems to an integrated American youth and popular culture.
Berry is a musical icon who established rock and roll as a musical form and brought the worlds of black and white together in song.

Following a triumphant set at the inaugural Camp Bestival this year, Berry will now perform on an entirely different scale. For just 2 nights audience members will pack themselves into the intimate surrounding of the Jazz Café and enjoy what will feel like a personal appearance for every individual in the room.

There really aren’t many artists deserving of the term ‘Legend’ left, but nobody would disagree that Berry has earned the status with (literally) flying colours, his guitar playing is unrivalled to this day and the energy he brings to his live performances belies his unbelievable 82 years of age. He’s always electric but up this close bring your rubber shoes or prepare for the shock factor: yes he still rocks better than the rest.

HANOI ROCKS TO BREAK UP BEFORE END OF YEAR

HANOI ROCKS have decided to break up by the end of  the year 2008. Michael Monroe and Andy McCoy feel  that they’ve taken the band as far as it can go and now wish to go their separate  ways.

All commitments until the end of  the year, including the UK tour starting in London on Halloween, will naturally be  honoured. In addition, the band has decided  to say farewell to their fans by doing a final tour of Japan in the spring 2009 and  immediately thereafter wrapping things up with a few nights at the legendary  Tavastia Club in Helsinki, Finland where their career originally got  started in the 80’s.

November 26th will see the timely release of the first ever career-spanning Hanoi Rocks retrospective: a 2-CD set  titled "This One’s For Rock’n’Roll – The Best Of Hanoi Rocks  1980-2008".

The band wishes to thank all their  fans, co-workers and business partners for their continued love and support  throughout the years.

THE DAMNED NEW ALBUM & TOUR IN NOV



The Damned
So, Who’s Paranoid?
(The English Channel)
Release Date:
November 17th

”So, Who’s Paranoid?” Certainly not The Damned, who have conjured up yet another collection of genre-defying anthems that sit effortlessly alongside their classic albums, their first since 2001’s critically-acclaimed ‘Grave Disorder’ album. From the catchy, jangly garage rock opener of “A Nation Fit For Heroes” to the lushly psychedelic closing track “Dark Asteroid”, The Damned masterfully affirms their legendary status. Thirty-two years on the heart of The Damned that is David Vanian and Captain Sensible beats stronger than ever, proving with “So, Who’s Paranoid?” that their trademark dark, melodic beauty, tinged with jagged satire is truly timeless and very much intact. They might be a band with an incredible past but The Damned are very much here and now and the thirteen songs featured here are all the proof you’ll need.

Tracklisting:

1)A Nation Fit For Heroes
2)Under The Wheels
3)Dr. Woofenstein
4)Shallow Diamonds
5)Since I Met You
6)A Danger To Yourself
7)Maid For Pleasure
8)Perfect Sunday
9)Nature’s Dark Passion
10)Little Miss Disaster
11)Just Hangin’
12)Nothing
13)Dark Asteroid
