In what will be their third appearance on the show, The Lagan will be coming into the Susy Rocks Live Studio to talk about their latest venture, an all day gig at The Fighting Cocks in Kingston called ‘Cockstoberfest’.
They will be chatting about the gig, playing music from the artists performing on the day and as if that wasn’t enough, there are giving away a signed copy of their album ‘Where’s your Messiah now?’ as part of our new feature ‘Baking Bad’.
And as if that wasn’t enough, we have the best local and not so local music you’ll find anywhere in the world (In our opinion, probably a bit of an exaggeration).
Tune in 7-9pm, tell a friend, it’s going to be rather splendid!
Back on 6th October 1986, thrash metal pioneers Slayer unleashed their third studio album ‘Reign in Blood’ on an unsuspecting world. The album was the band’s first release on a major label (Def Jam) and defined the thrash metal genre.
The album was critically acclaimed and commercially successful although the artwork and lyrical content meant that it received no airplay and Def Jam’s distributor Columbia, refused to release it. It fell to Geffen records to release the album although due to the controversy, it never appeared on their release schedule.
Now you’re probably thinking, why are Susy Rocks Live celebrating the 27th anniversary of the release of ‘Reign in Blood’? It’s simple, it’s a bloomin’ great album and we wanted an excuse to play three Slayer songs back to back!
My name is Andreas G. Wood, the guy who probably talks far too much on Susy Rocks Live but also brings you the best local and not so local music that you’re likely to hear anywhere. Oh and I have guests on my show too.
In the past we have had live in Studio sessions from: Brand JJK, Death Rattle, Thom Bowden Band, Free Swim, The Blue Pursuit, Sly Old Fox, The Lagan, Kid Champion, Luke Godwin, Wegrowbeards, Red Kite, The Brilliantly Simple, Trevor’s Head, Reckless Ambition and Sham 69.
We have been ever so busy over the last 8 months and have just had a feature done about the Show by Redhill and Reigate Life Newspaper:
On the Tuesday 26th Fabruary, we will be joined in the Studio by big bad, 80’s style hard rockers, White Coast Rebels (http://www.whitecoastrebels.com/), who will be playing tracks from their debut record ahead of their performance at Redhill Rock Fest. \m/
