Thimble Slide Announces A Kickstarter Campaign During August

thimble slide
Thimble Slide – the makers of a patented size-adjustable mini guitar slide that allows the wearer to slide when they want yet still be able to fret the strings when needed without removing the slide – announce that they are launching a Kickstarter funding campaign that will span the month of August ending Sep 25th. The funding is needed to assist the company in having tooling made that will allow mass production of their Maxim model slide by machines. Says Thimble Slide inventor Cole Coleman, “We’ve been handcrafting and selling our slides for three years and sales have been increasing steadily; yet, we can only make a small quantity per day by hand. Bringing machines online to manufacture the slide will allow for mass production. It will allow us to seek distribution, and bring the slide to the world-market giving guitar players a new option over traditional slides.” Why seek crowd funding? “It was clear that a bank loan was not going to happen as we’re still a young company with earnings lower than their minimum. Crowd funding is more inline with the mindset of today’s entrepreneurs. We’re a young company with a revolutionary product trying to break through the walls of establishment. With crowd funding, we’re inviting all who take part to share in that adventurous spirit; to help bring the Thimble Slide to the world market where it can be a helpful tool to guitarists worldwide.” Rewards for pledges include receiving one or two Thimble Slides and for those who pledge large amounts, permanent listing on the Thimble Slide website as a contributor. The Thimble Slide is a made in U.S.A. product and says owner/founder Cole Coleman, “I am very pleased and proud to assure everyone involved that the mass production of the slide will remain in the U.S.A. providing a handful of jobs from running the machines to packaging.” Visit ThimbleSlide.com for more information, photos, videos, and the link to their Kickstarter campaign.

RED VINYL TWO-DISC SET, CD
AND DIGITAL RELEASE (WITH BONUS TRACK) OF
‘ABSOLUTE TREASURES’
OUT JULY 31 ON ODE SOUNDS & VISUALS

“Rocky Horror is a family film.”
–Lou Adler, Producer

40 years after movie audiences began singing along to such hits as “The Time Warp,” “Sweet Transvestite” and “Dammit Janet,” THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW fans can own a piece of history with the newly re-mastered ABSOLUTE TREASURES soundtrack. Due out July 31 on Ode Sounds & Visuals and distributed by The Orchard, the soundtrack will be available as a limited-edition red vinyl two-disc set, and CD and as a digital release, which includes a bonus track will be available on August 21.

The red vinyl was created to honor the film’s legacy and the devotion from fans to create something unique to celebrate this historic occasion. “THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW has always had a mind of its own fueled by the insight and direction of its fans,” says producer, Lou Adler.

image

The influence of the cult classic, which has been entertaining movie audiences since its debut, now spans fourgenerations. “I recently heard a story about a man who went to see Rocky in the early 70’s,” says Adler. “He later had a daughter who went to see Rocky in the 90’s, and she now has a son, who just turned 15, and is seeing Rocky in the 2000’s. Proves that what I always said: ‘Rocky Horror is a family film.’ Because THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is generally screened at midnight, age is a factor. But as tweens become teens, they come to be the next generation of fans. THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is in a way a right of passage.”

The digital release of ABSOLUTE TREASURES will include the movie’s vocal version of “The Sword of Damocles.” According to soundtrack producer Richard Hartley, “There were two artists who recorded ‘The Sword of Damocles.’ Director, Jim Sharman and I were looking/listening for the ‘Glam’ rock sound of a Bowie and or a T. Rex. We wanted a falsetto voice for Rocky, because after all he was just born. The vocal performance in the film is that of an Australian singer. It was recorded live on the set–I think on the 19th of December 1974. And that’s the version that’s in the film. The one that has been included on soundtrack albums is the alternate take by one of the backing singers, which was used as something for the actor playing Rocky to mime to.”

**”The Sword of Damocles,” movie version, digital bonus track will be available on the ABSOLUTE TREASURES soundtrack at iTunes, Amazon and all digital stores, as well as available free of charge on The Rocky Horror Fan Club SoundCloud at https://soundcloud.com/rockyhorrorfanclub.

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW–the longest distributed theatrical release in motion picture history–debuted as a London theatre production in June 1973. The show came to America in 1974 with nine months of performances at Adler’s Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles. On September 26, 1975, THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW held its U.S. premiere at the UA Westwood Theatre in Los Angeles.

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW ABSOLUTE TREASURES track listing is as follows:

ABOUT BATTERING RAM:
On Battering Ram – with Biff Byford singing as well as he ever has, Paul Quinn and Doug Scarratt making full use of the term ‘shredding’ with their guitars and the lock-steady rhythm of Nibbs Carter’s bass and Nigel Glockler’s drums – the future and the past crash together in an ear-scintillatingly engaging, raucous, melodic-yet-classically heavy ten-song collection which will instantly be hailed as a SAXON classic. The title track, with its delectable twin guitar assault heralding the album’s commencement, gives the listener an instant crack around the chops, whilst traditionalists will be delighted to hear such a perfect marriage of old, classic SAXON with the newer, fresher invective in such riff-fronted fare as “Destroyer” and “Stand Your Ground”, but there are still moments of space and exploration which fans will love.

“This one’s a natural progression from Sacrifice,” says Byford, “There’s a bit less rock’n’roll and a bit more ‘heavy’ on it. We wanted to keep focused on a style rather than moving around too much.”

Produced by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Exodus, Accept) at his Backstage Recording Studios in rural Derbyshire, SAXON were able to hone in and whittle down any excess, finding the sonic space and balance to let Battering Ram’s riffs and melodies get the necessary space to scream front and center, Sneap bringing a crispness to the sound which evokes memories of the early ‘80s without for one moment sounding dated.

“Yes, Andy has been in charge of everything with this album, I keep on overview of it all, but he’s done a great job and we’re both pleased with the results. We have a great partnership,” adds Byford.

Lyrically, Battering Ram covers a variety of social situations, like the screaming fans who rage at the gig barriers (“Battering Ram”) or engaging in some good old fashioned myth (“The Devil’s Footprint” – a 200 year old tale of people waking up in winter snowfall to see unexplained hoof prints which they followed, looking for an answer in vain).

“When I’m writing lyrics I like to switch back and forth between complex things, reality and rock’n’roll,” says Byford, “I thought the whole folklore behind “The Devil’s Footprint” made it great material for a metal song, being that it’s both historic and mythical.

“With “Queen of Hearts” I wanted to write something around Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland, and it’s about the chess game that happens in the story. I wanted it to have prog-feeling in the way of its ambiance and mood. Then you have songs like “Destroyer” and “Hard and Fast” which are ‘80s inspired songs with that modern slant on it. I’m a big fan of Marvel comics, and I wanted to write a song around the character Destroyer, and with “Hard and Fast” it’s as the title suggests, about driving fast! I do like to tie the lyric into the song, so if it’s going to be a song about driving fast, well, it has to be a fast, hard song!”

There is also the album’s closing cut, haunting, gripping, melancholic tale of the First World War, “The Kingdom of The Cross”, where a poem unfurls the feelings and horrors which comprised this most brutal of global conflicts. “This year is the centenary of the end of the First World War. Nigel had a piece of music which he played on a synthesizer for a couple of years that I really liked. We had an actor (and singer), David Bower from the band Hell, read the poem and I sang the choruses. I didn’t want it to be typical Saxon, so it is just keyboards, bass, me and Dave.”

Wonderfully uncompromising, with Battering Ram, SAXON have once again established their rightly-venerated credentials as Kings and vanguards of heavy metal music.

PAGAN’S MIND To Release Live DVD/CD October 16th Via SPV/Steamhammer

PAGAN’S MIND To Release Live DVD/CD October 16th Via SPV/Steamhammer

image

An early highlight in PAGAN’S MIND’s career was playing the ProgPower USA festival in 2003, the American edition of what many consider to be the best niche festival in the world. Hard on the heels of the release of Celestial Entrance (their sophomore release), the praise they received in Atlanta was unlike anything the band had ever experienced before.

PAGAN’S MIND played the festival again in 2007 (also appearing as the house band for the legendary “All Star Jam”), and in 2009 returned for the festival’s 10 Year Anniversary under the moniker “Returning Heroes”.

On September 11th 2014, another historical performance took place at Center Stage, featuring Celestial Entrancein its entirety plus an additional set of True Norwegian Hard-Hitting In-Your-Face Space Metal, including the instrumental piece “Full Circle”. It is this piece, which comprises the theme of the show you are about to witness.

Now the band will release this concert on entitled Full Circle on October 16, 2015 as a 2CD/DVD digipak version, Blu-ray/2CD version, 2LP Gatefold version and download through SPV/Steamhammer

“It’s been about 10 years since I made a Christmas record,” says SETZER. “It [Christmas music] just seems to get more popular every year. They’re classic songs and you wonder after a couple records how many of them are left. Once you dig in you find, wow! I’ve haven’t done ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,’ you know. I’ve never done ‘Here Comes Santa Claus!’ Ones that everyone knows and are still out there. These songs are great songs. It doesn’t matter if they’re holiday songs or when they were written, they’re just great songs. So the trick,” adds SETZER, “is to make them sound hip. Some of them are eternally hip, you know, so you don’t have to do too much.”

 

Produced by Peter Collins (Rush, Bon Jovi, Alice Cooper, etc…) and recorded in both Nashville, TN and Hollywood, CA, the 12-track ROCKIN’ RUDOPLH includes highlights such as “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” “Yabba-Dabba Yuletide,” and “Rockabilly Rudolph,” among other notable Christmas classic tunes with SETZER’s trademark guitar work and vocal stylings matched with THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA’s rockin’ big-band horn arrangements.

About Brian Setzer:

Iconic guitarist, songwriter, vocalist and 3-time Grammy-award-winner, is a “Musician’s Musician” credited with continually taking chances with innovative and daring musical styles, while single-handedly resurrecting two forgotten genres of music (rockabilly in the ‘80’s and swing in the ’90’s). Along the way, he has scored chart-topping hits, sold 13 million records and received the Orville H. Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award throughout his decorated career as founder/leader of the Stray Cats, his 18-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra, and as a solo artist. He is consistently cited as one of the world’s greatest living guitarists, and has a best-selling, extensive line of elite Gretsch signature model guitars bearing his name. Brian appeared in the 1987 film, La Bamba, portraying rockabilly pioneer Eddie Cochran. In 2002, Brian earned the privilege of being one of the few musicians to be animated in an episode of “The Simpsons,” alongside Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Tom Petty. That same year, Setzer was personally requested to induct Chet Atkins into the 17th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2014, SETZER received the distinct honor of being asked by the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. to donate a replica of his original 1959 Gretsch 6120 “Stray Cat” guitar, joining an elite collection of musical instruments at the museum including Dizzy Gillespie’s trumpet and John Coltrane’s saxophone.

Cathouse Live will feature band performances on two stages, VIP Meet and Greets, a vendor village, a chopper motorcycle show, tattoo shops, go-go dancers, and more.
