What's Hot

You know, as a diehard Zeppelin fan I was sceptical at first but this band has just grown, and grown, and grown on me. I’ve just watched their live gig at Red Rocks (possibly my favourite venue ever) and loved it. So I’ve just ordered both their albums and a wee (not so wee really at xxxl) t shirt for myself for Christmas. May they continue to grow and blossom into a great band in their own right without all the negativity from curmudgeonly old fools who only look at them as a Zeppelin rip off act, the mighty Led were hardly original to start with were they!
Tomorrow will be a good day.

  • Cheers Zep will have to give that a watch as I loved their first album.  Ok it sounded like LZ but some people say that like it’s a bad thing !

    I couldn't agree more. I am that curmudgeonly old zep fan and I had written them off for ages. Now I love them! Need to get me a T! 
    Red Rocks gig was fantastic.

    When they came on the scene I thought that they were a really kick-ass rock band, and I was amazed at how young they were. It was incredibly annoying and unfair in my mind that they faced so much vitriol. I was a big Led Zep fan back in the day, but I have no problem with them at all. I hope they get lots of success and get recognised in their own right. I remember similar with Marillion when everyone called them Genesis clones at first, they have certainly forged their own career though.

    And there was me imagining Green Eco-Warrior Ms Thunberg had diversified into Commercial vehicle rental...

    In truth, cracking rock n roll band. Love their stuff, and keenly looking forward to new album next spring.

    They sound great.  I don’t mind if their songwriting approach is to put a sheet of tracing paper over Led Zeppelin music.

    They're superb, and 2nd ablum is miles away from a LZ homage.
    Imagine something sharp and witty here ......

    Bass player is seriously hot....

    Donald Trump has spoken movingly about 7-Eleven. It reminded him, he said, of the way Americans came together in 1941 after Pearl Necklace.

    cracking a bot of Malbec and treating the doggos to a late evening of Josh Kiszka’s caterwauling.

    Any good?  And by “good” I mean “Extremely Zeppish”?

    I love the songs but I just can't listen to his voice. I've got the albums on my spotify and I keep giving them a go but I get about 10-15 mins in and give in. Too shrill and strident. Sounds like nails down a chalkboard to me ( and I like The Darkness! )

    This a bit for me too. I'm lovin the rock groove they get as a band on the more recent stuff, now it doesnt sound like a zep tribute act. But can't quite love the vocals. Still good though.

    I think it's great: really rather talented playing, bombastic and delightfully silly squawks from the singer.  WTF's he banging on about?  Who cares.  Had it pounding out of the Bose as I tolled about in the Jerkmobile earlier, and giving it another blast now as I rip the lid off the first cold one of the day.

    I like them - I don't think they're as amazing as people say they are (a "rebirth of true rock n roll" n' all that shite), they're just another rock band amongst a sea of decent artists. But they have good songs, with nice hooks.

    I will say that their guitarist is infuriating to watch live .... tries too hard to be jimmy page. Just be yourself ffs...

    I am a massive fan, I have to admit.

    Somehow I heard of them quite early on when they were away to release the first EP and loved them straight away. I then told everyone to listen to them, and generally speaking all my mates weren’t interested with most saying they couldn’t stand his voice. I managed to see them live in St. Luke’s in Glasgow on Easter Sunday a couple of years ago too, which was awesome all round. It was just one of those gigs that I’ll remember for a long time... the venue, the band, the beers and the company were all excellent. I then sort of forgot about them over the last year or so as I’d listened to them so much, but this new album is great and I’ve ended up back listening to them a lot.

    Aye, they’re maybe not original... but I can’t help but love the music, the guitar sound and the guy’s voice. I totally get that it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but I’m glad it’s mine.

    I wasn’t interested, I had sampled a few album tracks and they didn’t do much for me but I watched a chunk of the Red Rocks stuff on YouTube and really enjoyed it. I hope they get the chance to grow into more of their own thing, they have the potential to be way more than they are now IMHO - at least playing wise, songwriting we shall have to see. Fortunately in the US there’s the live circuit to support them
    I really don’t need any more guitar pedals...I really don’t need any more guitar pedals...I really don’t need anymore guitar pedals.......
