Originating in Slough (currently part of Berkshire), Sledgehammer are, so far in this series, the band based closest to my hometown. Unfortunately, information on the band and readily available youtube samples are seemingly scarce, but I'm going to do my best.
The three-piece originally consisting of Mike Cooke (guitar, vocals), Terry Pearce (bass), Ken Revell (drums) first garnered attention at the dawn of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal when their 1979 self-titled single was released independently at first, but would shortly be re-issued by a now defunct record label called Valiant.
Sledgehammer (youtube) was accompanied by the b-side Feel Good and was rather well received, as seemingly all the 'early' signings of the first widely recognised year of the movement seemed to be. The band's title track then became such a live favourite many of the band's sets reportedly featured the track twice…
14 Jul 2008, 04:24 by MetallicaACDCYep, another one. I forced myself to NOT write a love poem this time, seeing as that seems to be the only subject I can write about these days! This poem is more open-ended, as it's mostly about my outlook on my life as it is right now. There are two distinct voices: the lost little boy and the man on a mission. These are the two personalities I'm struggling with on a daily basis right now.
Inspirations: The Real Me by The Who
1 Jun 2008, 02:29 by cloudy_skiesHere are a few ramblings on music. Thanks to Brad (MetallicaACDC) for the idea, as he's been doing this kind of thing for a while now.
1. I'm by no means the biggest Metallica fan in the world, but I don't understand why people always praise their 80's albums but say they sold out with The Black Album. IMO, that album has some of the best songs the band ever wrote, and they have a real groove that you don't hear on, say, Master of Puppets. Granted, they sucked later with St. Anger, but that's no reason to trash on some very good, if slightly more commercial, songs. Also, why do I find this very funny?
2. I don't like it when bands record an album after not making music together for 20 or 30 years. Especially when one or more of the key band members are dead. *coughcoughNew York DollscoughcoughThe StoogescoughcoughThe Whocoughcough* I can understand a reunion tour, since a lot of people never got to see them in their prime, but when the band hasn't been around for such a long time…
18 May 2008, 12:51 by HendrixFan42There are some albums that just sum up all the feeling that adolescents face. They could be silly and juvenile, frantic and haunting, nostalgic and longing, or depressing and confused. Here are the five best albums that for whatever reason bring to mind the teenage years, in my humble opinion of course.
5.) Take Off Your Pants and Jacket Blink 182 actually sounded like they were 15, even though they were in their mid 20s on this 2001 release. Tom Delongue's nasally angst ridden vocals mesh with amateurish but universal lyrics about dates, concerts and cynical feelings about Christmas. Key Tracks: First DateThe Rock Show
4.) #1 Record The great 70s cult band Big Star mixed shimmering Byrds guitars and melodies with gentle, nostalgic songs about growing up. Even though they were indebted to 60s pop, they ended up influencing later bands like R.E.M. and Teenage Fanclub. Key Tracks:In The Street Thirteen
3.) Quadrophenia Tommy is more famous and has more hits, but Quadrophenia is arguably the better album. …
14 May 2008, 22:46 by JoshoewaaHehe. Sorry, I couldn't resist. I like them too much. I'll be putting some proper journals up again soon! But for now, heres this... actually, does anyone even read my journals LOL? Oh well...
01. Why did you decide to take this quiz?
Track: Fitter, Happier
Comments: Well, it might be making me happier, albeit only slightly. But fitter..?
02. Where will you meet your husband/wife?
Track: If I Needed Someone
Artist: The Beatles
Comments: Oh, so because I don't need them... I won't meet them... thats clear enough!
03. Where will you "hug" your wife/husband for the first time?
Track: Bill Murray
Comments: What would hugging my wife infront of Bill Murray achieve? Trying to make him jealous? I'd just get embarrassed!
04. What is your secret dream?
Track: Cry Baby Cry
Artist: The Beatles
Comments: I don't wanna make babies cry... I have nothing against babies! Although they are quite irritating.
