A Quick One For While I'm Away

A Quick One For While I'm Away. I'm not actually going any place, i just like that title.
A few unconnected items that i was posting for a friend & thought i'd add them here to tide you all over 'til the next "real" post mid-week.
Here's a nice one to begin with, this is an "unofficial" release from Velvet Revolver, called "Appetite For Reconstruction". It compiles cover versions, b-sides, acoustic tracks, demos that predate the "Contraband" album & some other demos from the same sessions that didn't make the final cut for the album. If you're a fan of the ex-Guns'n'Roses/Stone Temple Pilots band, this is a treat for you right here. If not, a good opportunity to rectify the situation for you unbelievers, find out what the fuss is about. Either way, it should keep you going until their new album arrives next month.

Next, here's the only release from New York's Sinful from 1985. This is their "Gonna Raise Hell" Mini LP, five tracks of what Metal Forces magazine called "ANGEL meets METALLICA in a dark alley and the white hot ones come out on top", before awarding it 10/10 Now that piqued my interest, and it should do yours. Of course, it's not an entirely accurate description, but not entirely off beam either. Hear for yourself, and pay special attention to stand out track, "Midnite Sun".

Finally, one of the rarest privately pressed US Metal 7"s of the 1980's, this is "Kick Me Where It Hurts" by Satin Steel. This was the sole release by the Pennsylvania based band, it's either unblemished genius or hamfisted poppycock. It depends what mood you're in, or indeed how drunk you are. Have a beer & crank it up!

And that's about it for this evening. To the feller who requested Rex, check the comments section of the last post.
See you all again midweek for the Scando/Euro megapost. Enjoy!!!

Glad you enjoyed the Sinful album Kidd, i really wanted to hear it back in the day when i read the reviews, but it never crossed my path. A guy i trade with asked me recently if i'd heard it and i remembered the write up in Kerrang all those years ago, so he fixed me up with a copy. Better late than never, it's an absolute corker! A really individual sound they had, perhaps not "Metallica meets Angel", but an interesting blend of styles for sure. A shame they never released anymore stuff.
