It’s rare that I come by a band that immediately catches my attention. Eyes Set To Kill has done that for me. They’ve crossed so many popular music styles today that makes it their own. Gut tearing screams woven delicately with an angel’s voice couldn’t have sounded any better. Eyes Set To Kill has it. I recently found out that their lead vocalist, Lindsay, has left the band on personal matters. The band has started a search process for a new vocalist. I’m not sure how this is going to effect the quickly developing band. We can only wait and see. Either way they’re all talented musicians and I can’t wait to see where they could go. Check out tracks Darling and Liar In The Glass.

In 1977 today, the BBC announced a ban on the new Sex Pistols single ‘God Save The Queen’ saying its, “in gross bad taste”. And the IBA issued a warning to all radio stations saying the playing the single would be in breach of Section 4:1:A of the Broadcasting act. The single reached No.2 on the UK chart. A year before the Sex Pistols ban, The Who gave themselves a place in the Guinness book of Records as the loudest performance of a rock band at 120 decibels, when they played at Charlton Athletic Football ground.

I came across A Skylit Drive, browsing myspace, typical, I know. But after listening to their songs, I was hooked. Their vocal layerings and ear ringing screams show off the dynamics of each song, put together beautifully. They only have a 7 track EP and I’m impressed throughout. I’m anxious to hear more from them in the future. Some of my favorite tracks include Drown The City and According To Columbus.

In 1995, today, The Black Crowes played a concert in Knoxville, Tennessee. Joshua Harmon, a teenager sitting in the second row sued the band, a year later for $5,000 claiming significant hearing loss.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Lynam

Hometown: Birmingham, Alabama
Genre: Rock, Alternative
Sounds like: Def Leppard, Hinder
Current Album: Slave to the Machine
Myspace: myspace.com/lynam

I came across this band about 5 months ago when I went to a Eighteen Visions/Hinder concert. They played amazing and sounded great. It was hard not to look at the lead singer and not think Steve Tyler (from Aerosmith). Lynam’s music is great for driving too or just listening to on the beach. Their most recent album, Slave To The Machine plays wonderfully from beginning to end. Some key songs are Tanis (Change Your Mind), Giving Up On Rock ‘n’ Roll, and the heart ballad By Your Side. I’d recommend this album to anyone who’s a strong fan of solid rock, one trait Lynam pulls of very well.

40 years ago today the cover of the Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album is staged and photographed at Chelsea Manor Studios in London using collage and wax figures from Madame Tussaud’s famous museum. The actual cover is a painting of that photograph. Among the likenesses featured on the cover are Mae West, Shirley Temple, Fred Astaire, Bob Dylan, Tony Curtis, Marlon Brando, Oscar Wilde, Marlene Dietrich and W.C. Fields.
