From : / MelodicRock.cpm
Australian melodic rock band The Radio Sun have penned an original tribute to Ace Frehley titled 'SpaceMan'. Guitarist Stevie Janevski goes on to say 'all of us in The Radio Sun grew up on a healthy diet of KISS and in particular were all inspired by the original spaceman Ace Frehley. This song is a bit of fun and is not meant to defame anyone in particular but rather a stance acknowledging the original SpaceMan'.

The Radio Sun will release their second full length album mid 2015, currently being mixed by Paul Laine (ex Danger Danger). "SpaceMan" will not be on the upcoming album but rather something special the band put together before the full length album's release. SpaceMan" will be released as a
4 song CD/EP and will also be available on ITunes, Spotify, Google Play etc. soon.

January 11 : MARCEESE 's 2nd folk KISS Tribute album and videoclip
From : Kiss Related Recordings  / Marceese
In April 2013 Berlin based folksinger and guitarplayer Marceese released his first full KISS Tribute album "Baby Driver". He announced to record the complete KISS backing catalog from the 70's area. On January 23, 2015 Timezone Records is set to release his second coup called "Have Love, Will Travel". He made it his business.

Like on his first KISS cover album Marceese nearly forgoes the big hits and leave some die-hard-fans with clueless faces. And surprisingly the new interpretations sound way older than the originals by Gene, Ace, Peter and Paul ! Which is result of Marceese slipping over his own Americana-folk-style to 70's Hard Rock tunes.
"Tomorrow and Tonight" and "Move On"for example sounds like 40ies / 50ies recordings.
But again you count on that native Berliner, so he thunderstruck with a Hendrix-influenced version of the disco-song "Dirty Livn'", just to keep it up with a cheesy yearning variation of "Easy Thing"...

"Have Love, Will Travel" is a varied folk record in the broadest sense, far away from the excessively buffoonery of the New York Hard Rock quartet.

"Have Love, Will Travel" track list :
01  Tomorrow and Tonight
02  Man Of 1000 Faces
03  Plaster Caster
04  I Want You
05  Radioactive
06  Got Love For Sale
07  Easy Thing
08  Move On
09  Dirty Livin'
10  Rip It Out
11  Rock and Roll All Nite
