VIVE LE ROCK - Music For Pleasure (A Compilation)

Here's some music for all you good people. AT LAST!.... I hear you cry.... ABOUT FUCKING TIME. Will it have been worth waiting for? Too fucking right it will have! Like all the previous Vive Le Rock compilations, there's something for everyone with a love of all things Punk and Beyond. Veteran and vintage Scandinavian rockers THE NOMADS kick things off with Miles Away. Ninetees indie rockers MIDWAY STILL return to 'the scene' with Seeing Red. CATCHER, are indeed catchy with a nice line of agit pop punk. Their track Tobacco and Slavery is a great piece of social commentary, about....well the title says it all. Hear Come The Drums by JAYA THE CAT is a punky reggae groove heavy number, guaranteed to get you skanking and swaying. URBAN DOGS Not In My Name is a great acoustic protest tune. THE ADOLESCENTS do what they do best, knock out a good tune American Dogs In Europe is no exception. A Rockabilly beat and a razor sharp guitar powers GRAVEYARD JOHNNYS We Wont Back Down. DRONGOS FOR EUROPE shout it from the streets like it's the 1980's again with their track Peace, as do fellow stalwarts and survivors of the 82 Punk scene THE DESTRUCTORS, who provide some political punk rawk shouting with Stop The War. Bitten and Twisted by BITEBACK is a fine piece of sing along punk rock clatter. Catching My Breath by KILTER is a sleazy rumble slightly reminiscent of Garbage, (that's the band, not a statement of what Kilter sound like.) THE APOSTATES finish the show with Divide Me, which sounds like stoner indie rockers Swervedriver. Like I said something for everyone. Grab it here!

A Observation

Saw some neighbours of mine leaving the local in-convenience store the other day, a mum and her two teenage children. They got in their car and drove home, I know that because the shop is less than a minutes walk away and when I got home they were just getting out of their car still dressed in their pyjamas???? The lazy fucking bastards!!!!


Blazing their own trail across the Rock'n'Roll wasteland we are currently living in, or sailing their own course across the rock'n'roll seas, leaving a storm in their wake. if you'd rather. There's no one else out there doing this with such power and passion. The Jim Jones Revue are in a class of their own, there are lessons to be learned and they are the preachers.
This isn't revivalist or revisionist, this is revolutionary; a linage from Jerry Lee Lewis through to the MC5, then onto The Cramps and Nick Cave. The Jim Jones Revue have taken rock'n'roll to a new sonic level. The blue print has been torn up and re-drawn.  The rule book has been burned.  If the Devil has all the best tunes, then he/she has a few missing.
The Savage Heart is a different beast to their previous album Lets Burn The House Down; it's slightly more subtle and subdued in places, if The Jim Jones Revue do subtle and subdued? It's a dark, stark, nasty, brutal and beautiful animal of an album. From the pounding piano and primal howl of Where Did Da Money Go? To the mutant gospel of 7 Times Around The Sun, this is foot taping, skull krushing, gnarled and gritty Rock'n'Roll with a soul.
In these trouble torn times it's well worth a crisp or crumpled Ten Pound note of your hard earned money. Music to cause trouble to!  

"What's yours is mine and what's mine I keep, I took the whole thing when you was asleep" - Jim Jones Revue

Doom and Gloom ? Yeah right! £100+ for a ticket to the gigs, and the band are gonna make a reputed £16 million. Tough times for some!

Jimmy So vile

I've been slightly distracted recently by the exposure of national treasure Jimmy Saville as a trash 'child abuser'

No one has come out and defended him, all his former colleagues have, said they “heard the rumours” but knew nothing and did nothing.

The BBC, Compliant and complicit in the cover up, someone there needs to tell the truth about the past. They could have done something to stop it. Institutional.

Different times, different morals post 60's free love masculinity. People were still 'blacking' up on The Black and White Minstrel Show. There are no excuses!

Society reaps what it sows. Sex Drugs and Rock'n'Roll. Superstar DJ's, he wont have been the only one.

Why weren't concerns that were raised acted upon? The media was easily bought by his charitable stunts, when really he was just grooming and fooling the public.

Where's the truth? Dead and buried with all the lies.

Why wait until he's dead? Fear and shame kept his victims and accusers silent, and the ones that spoke out when he was still alive were silenced by walls of denial.

The dead can't defend themselves, but how can you defend the indefensible; the abuse of power. He was made to feel that he was untouchable, no questions asked.

Jimmy Saville.... Top Of The Pops, Top Of The Tots more-like.

The exposure of Jimmy Saville as a serial sex offender has confirmed something I've always thought; What a creepy looking weirdo, not the sort of bloke you'd ask to babysit your children.
Never judge a book by its cover, but sometimes something doesn't look, feel or sound right.

It would appear that no young women were safe from Jimmy Saville and his cigar; from teeny boppers to children in hospital, Jim was there with his cigar ready to fix it for them!

In reality, the Jimmy Saville story is just a small part of the bigger picture, in which the powerful abuse their power for their own ends, and to control others. Politicians, The Police, The Bosses, Business leaders, The Media. They are all guilty of abusing their power, and covering things up.

FUCK'EM ALL! (As Jimmy Saville would have said.)
