NEWS UPDATE : January 2016
|January 29 : Gene
Simmons guests on new LITA FORD album
80s hard rock queen Lita Ford will release a new album, "Time
Capsule", on April 15 via SPV/Steamhammer. The very special and
unusual recording turns back the clock to a time when honest,
down-to-earth rock music was still handmade and recorded without
digital tricks and contraptions.
"Time Capsule" is a "throwback" record that boasts identifiable
voices and brilliant players jamming without any planning or
pressure. Some of the album's highlights: Billy Sheehan (bass),
Rodger Carter (drums), Dave Navarro (mandolin), Jeff Scott Soto
(vocals), Rick Nielsen and Robin Zander (backing vocals) and GENE
"There was a shitload of these 24-track analog tapes in the closet
in my house [in the islands]," Ford recalls. "This is some of the
best work I've ever done and it was sitting there. I grabbed two
suitcases and took them back to the United States."
Imagine Ford dragging a pair of suitcases full of analog tapes
through the Caribbean dirt back to Los Angeles, so, as she recalls,
"we could bake these fuckers," due to their age. "If you just put
them on the reel, they would flake. I was chewing my fingernails,
thinking, 'Please work!' And they did!"
"Time Capsule" contains ten songs plus an intro and will be
available as a digipak as well as an LP version and download. It's
Ford's gift to fans who love the '80s, when thrilling vocal
performances, raunchy riffs, and loud, growling guitars were as
essential as oxygen.

KABUKI 's KISS inspired album "Season Fever" released
Kiss Related Recordings
Rockers KABUKI recently have released their second KISS inspired
album "Season Fever".
With the opening beat and guitar riff of the
opening song “Fall In Madness” it’s clear that Kabuki’s second
album release is inspired by KISS first six studio albums. Near
all songs on the album have guitar riffs, drumbeats or bass
loops that in some way reminds to KISS’ “Dressed To Kill” or
their “Love Gun” album, while the sound of “Land’s End” comes
close to Paul Stanley’s 1978 solo effort.
Even tracks like “Draw The Line” which doesn’t sound like KISS
at all, still have a subtle KISS inspired riff in between, while
the guitar solo in “Expectations” sounds a bit like Ace
Kabuki's self titled debut album was released November 11, 2011, and
was inspired by eighties KISS, which songs would fit on "Animalize"
and "Crazy Nights".
