Bon Jovi - What About Now (2013)
Liv Kristine – Libertine (2012)
Jorn - Traveller (2013)
Lionville – II (2012)
One Man's Trash - History (2012) – Jimi Jamison on vocals
Orianthi – Violet Journey (2007)
The Poodles – Performocracy (2011)
The Poodles – Tour De Force (2013)
Seasick Steve - Hubcap Music (2013)
Some nice stuff from The Poodles, Seasick Steve, Jimi Jamison and Lionville.
But it seems that this month I’m in a Dio mood and Jorn - Traveller (2013) captures his sprit well on this release.
Best album from ages past
Liv Kristine - Deus Ex Machina (1998)
Liv Kristine - Enter My Religion (2006)
Toto – Isolation (1984) - Great 80s melodic rock featuring Fergie Frederiksen on vocals.
Best best of album
Don Henley – The Very Best Of - A nice collection, especially The End of the Innocence, New York Minute, The Heart of the Matter and of course The Boys of Summer.
Gig of the Month
We did see German band Middriff do an acoustic performance on the mini stage of a Red Bull tour van in Austria.
Cinema film of the Month
This Is The End
The World's End wasn’t as good as the other 2 of the ‘Cornetto trilogy’ but did have its moments.
Film on TV
A Fantastic Fear Of Everything - Simon Pegg as a paranoid writer in a quirky film directed by the singer of Kula Shaker.
Best DVD bought
Fantastic 4 (because I wanted to complete my Fantastic 4 collection now that I put the boxes in the loft and the discs in a box downstairs)
America Unchained by Dave Gorman (Dave’s adventure to travel coast to coast using nothing but non-chain gas stations and hotels).
The Blokes Guide To Pregnancy by Jon Smith
Argos Value Range Desk and Chair Set - Oak Effect - which my PC moved out of the computer room and onto this in the landing (soon to be moved again to the spare bedroom after a furniture shuffle).
August has 1 day off work, a wedding, a few mini social events and NO GIGS!
