THE CRY! "Dangerous game, US Edition"

THE CRY! "Dangerous game, US Edition"

The CRY! Is a five-piece Rock 'n' Roll band from Portland,  Oregon, founded in 2011, that manages to re-craft the 2 min. pop song for a new generation. The CRY! effortlessly merges 50's style vocal harmonies, the jangle of 60's pop hooks and the glam-rock attitude of the 70's with the raw punkish street emotions.

On March 1st, 2014 the CRY! released their 2nd studio LP "Dangerous Game" in Europe and Asia. Even before it's release the highly anticipated album has earned high-praise within the power-pop community and has garnered dozens of critical reviews.

In Oct. 2014 “Dangerous Game: US Edition” was released as the band’s first american offering. The record features 13 previously released tracks and one exclusive track: “Last Thing That I do.”

14 tracks of 100% pure Rock’N'Roll. If you're looking for 70’s power pop and punk combined with an authentic glam sound, this little gem is going to make your head spin and your feet stomping for weeks. All killers and no fillers, hooks a plenty and top-notch vocals, this is definitely in my top ten of 2014.

Ming City Rockers

Ever heard of Immingham, a dock town near Hull and Grimsby, nicknamed Ming and known only for its petrochemical plant ?

Obviously it seems there isn’t much to do in ‘Ming’,  so four young musicians -Clancy Jones-Rhythm Guitar/vocals/harmonica, Morely Adams-Lead Guitar/backing vocals, Doc Ashton-Drums, Jakki Walsh-bass - decided to start a band aptly going by the name of Ming City Rockers instead of just sit around drinking and being cynical.

Ming City Rockers' debut and self-titled studio album was released on 15 September 2014 by the Mad Monkey label.

Half a hour of mayhem delivered at blistering speed. It’s an album infused with the spirit of The GODFATHERS, Link Wray and the delta blues, brimming with wit, desperation, defiance and bite and wrestling under the yoke of many masters: booze and narcotics (‘Get Out Of Your Head’), long-gone lovers (‘Rosetta’, ‘Twist It’), working-class nihilism (‘I Wanna Get Out Of Here…’, ‘I Don’t Like You’ and ‘You Ain’t No Friend Of Mine’) and Belzebub himself in their blistering, irreverent cover of Robert Johnson’s ‘Crossroads’.

Favorite tracks : I wanna get out of here but I can’t take you anywhere -  Twist it  - Rosetta
