BEST OF APRIL 2K13

A few gigs, an evening out and not much more exciting. Just waiting for Spring to arrive still.

Best album of recent times
Beardfish - Mammoth (2011)
Beardfish - The Void (2012)
The Darkness – Hot Cakes (2012)
Fergie Frederiksen – Happiness Is The Road (2011)
Jadis - See Right Through You (2012)
Jorn - Symphony (2012)
Lordi – To beast Or Not To Beast (2013)
Saxon – Sacrifice (2013)
Snakecharmer – Snakecharmer (2013)
W.E.T. - Rise Up (2013)

While I’m loving the Beardfish stuff, especially The Void I am an avid follower of The Beard and Spock’s Beard - Brief Nocturnes and Dreamless Sleep (2013) is another great addition, this time with new vocalist Ted Leonard

Best album from ages past
Beardfish - Från En Plats Du Ej Kan Se (2003)
Beardfish - The Sane Day (2006)
Beardfish - Sleeping in Traffic: Part One (2007)
Beardfish - Sleeping in Traffic: Part Two (2008)
Beardfish - Destined Solitaire (2009)

While I’m loving the Beardfish stuff, especially Sleeping in Traffic: Part Two I think there’s something about Hasse Froberg & The Musical Companion – Future Past (2010) featuring the vocals of Hasse from The Flower Kings. Still a bit proggy but less flowery than his main band.

Gig of the Month
HRH AOR (Dante Fox / Romeo's Daughter / FM / Tesla / Mia Klose) + A bit of HRH PROG (Arthur Brown) @ Magma Rotherham 6th April -
HRH AOR (Barb-Q-Barbies / Buffalo Summer / Nubian Rose / HEAT) + A bit of HRH PROG (Magenta / Von Hertzen Brothers) @ Magma Rotherham 7th April
SONATA ARCTICA @ Rescue Rooms 14 April
SAXON (+ Quireboys) @ Rock City19th April
MCFLY @ Concert Hall 22nd April

Saxon were very good but the festivals usually win due to the combined gigs.
This time HardRockHell AOR / PROG @ Magma Rotherham 6th April 7th April which had Mia Klose / Barb-Q-Barbies / FM / Tesla + Von Hertzen Brothers / Magenta / Arthur Brown.

Cinema film of the Month
Evil Dead wasn’t as good a remake as I thought it would be. I enjoyed sci-fi Oblivion more.

Film on TV
Joyful Noise – Dolly Parton musical comedy/drama
The Disappearance Of Alice Creed – UK kidnapping drama
Piranha DD – Loved The Hoff in it, everything else was mostly tits.
The Five-Year Engagement - Jason Segal romantic comedy.

Book read
I read one but I can’t say what it was yet.

Top purchase
Breville VKJ587 Spectra Illuminated Kettle – White
I got a new wedding ring as my other one is starting to slip off (maybe due to weight loss). It’s not as good as the original (which I might resize soon) but still has skull & crossbones on it. It can be my holiday wedding ring :)


May has 7 days off work (+ 2 bank hols), 5 gigs and a cruise and maybe some exciting news.
