Backstreet Girls are a Norwegian rock band. Formed in 1984 by brothers Pål Kristensen on bass and Tom Kristensen on vocals. They were joined by guitarist Petter Baarli, and his brother, drummer Bjørn Terje Baarli. In 1985 Tom Kristensen left the band, to be replaced by Arne Aarnes. In 1986 they released their debut album Mental Shakedown on the small independent label Medicine Records. Later that year Arne Aarnes left the band, and was replaced by Bjørn Müller of the band Z-off. The line-up of Petter Baarli, Pål Kristensen, Bjørn Terje Baarli and Bjørn Müller remained for the subsequent three albums, "Boogie Till' You Puke", "Party On Elmstreet" and "Coming Down Hard".  In November 2000 Universal Records released this greatest hits compilation.!TgdTxRRJ!5BK87aEE8z89ZAbjdDqsAI-FYff9dvptzRsEOaORdFQ

The Backseat Angels CD review in Uberrock.

The Backseat Angels - 'Saturday Night Shakes' (Rum Bar Records)PrintE-mail
CD Reviews
Written by Dom Daley

BACKSEATANGELS300You want toe tappers? Well, how about the Ramones-inspired 'My Baby Wants To Brainwash My Mind'. Nothing more to add really as it has the big bass and guitar trading the same chugging riffs with some melodic vocals over the top as the drums hack out a solid beat then you get a breakdown that sounds like it might just fall down before everyone comes back in for a once round the song title.

I think the second song might be called 'Saturday Night' with some camp vocals before the band joins in, this is exactly how The Undertones started. The song itself is fine, it's been done to death and by a lot better bands than The Backseat Angels but I'll always give a listen and a heads up to anyone who goes down the Ramones path.

God only knows what the fuck is going on with the lyrics on 'School Bus Driver', man, even if it is pure '70s glam pop these lyrics are weird.

'Peppermint Girl' is great, T. Rex meets The Boys, whereas 'Hard To Tame' is The Knack. 'To Be A Better Man' has horns and sounds like one of those saucy seaside postcards the musical.

'Pick Up The Phone' is a kiss me quick glam stack-attack! Man, whoever is providing the handclaps on this album must be working overtime because 'Crazy Like A Fox' is Sweet-tastic, whilst 'Stupid Brats' takes us back to their Undertones doing the Ramones that started this whole shebang.

They saved the best til last and the rhythm consists of handclaps and tambourine shaking how could I possibly not like it. It's the reason the sun shines, light hearted and easy on the ear The Backseat Angels know what they're about and what they're capable of and deliver it to perfection.

Only The Backseat Angels will know why there is another version of 'To Be A Better Man' even if it an '80s extended version. That aside this record isn't to be taken seriously - it's retro in the best possible way and to be enjoyed and that's what I will continue do.

Tommy and The Rockets - "Beer And Fun And Rock 'n' Roll"

"Beer And Fun And Rock 'n' Roll" is the debut release of Tommy And The Rockets. Behind this moniker, you find veteran Danish multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Thomas Stubgaard. The man has teamed up with New Trocaderos' songwriter/producer Michael Chaney and some other usual suspects from The Connection /
The New Trocaderos galaxy (Brad Marino, our main man Geoff Palmer and Kris "Fingers" Rodgers, to name a few).

Last fall, Stubgaard found himself with a stash of great, melodic hooks and contacted Chaney out of the blue to ask that they write a song together. Chaney loved the melodies, and within days "Take My Advice" and "Beer and Fun and Rock 'n' Roll" had been written. Those songs quickly led to others and before long, the ten original rockers that make up this album were recorded. Brad Marino heard the demos and agreed to play drums. Geoff Palmer jumped in to engineer the recording of the drums and percussion. Final musical touches were added by keyboard master Kris "Fingers" Rodgers and the album was mixed at Friar Park East by Geoff Palmer. 

This team work resulted in 10 amazing original kick ass rock'n'rollers that should please to every fan of the Ramones driving beats, the Beach Boys incredible harmonies or Psychotic Youth sense of melody. All killers and no fillers, this album rocks from start to finish and will certainly be in the top ten of the best rock'n'roll records of 2016! Do yourself a favour and get a copy!!!

"Beer And Fun And Rock 'n' Roll" is available in cd, vinyl or digital download.

The album contained a mix of originals, standards from Heartbreakers live shows, and covers, including the Chantays' surf classic "Pipeline," the Shangri-Las' "(Give Him a) Great Big Kiss," Otis Blackwell's "Daddy Rollin' Stone" (done with Thunders on the opening verse, Phil Lynott on the 2nd and Steve Marriott on verse 3), and the New York Dolls' "Subway Train.".

The Backseat Angels - Saturday Night Shakes

"Saturday Night Shakes", the debut full length of glam poppers The Backseat Angels is soon to be released on Rumbar Records.  

What you have here are 11 brilliant songs of super catchy, fun, addictive, powerful rock'n'roll with great vocals, driving guitars and an ever pulsating rhythm section. 

If you dig The Records, The Boys, The Motors, Boomtown Rats, The Undertones, Sweet, Slade, Hello and all that 70's British Glam and Punk then you are going to LOVE this band!! Just in time for the Prom and those "Saturday Night Shakes".

In the meantime, you can purchase a digital copy here: 

The extended mix of "To be A Better Man" is exclusive to this download and is not included on the CD.

The Now Time Delegation - Watch For Today (reup)

The Now Time Delegation - Watch For Today
In wav - scans are included

1. Raise Your Hand  
2. Little Miss Fortune  
3. Getting The Corners  
4. Layin' On The Ground  
5. Hangin' Tree  
6. Keep On Pushin'  
7. Nothing But A Heartache  
8. Bye Bye  
9. Bert's Apple Crumble  
10. Handle Me With Care  
11. Stand And Deliver  
12. Look To Tomorrow  

The Now Time Delegation, featuring folks from the Bellrays, Lord High Fixers, Jack O'Fire, etc. are an amazing combo who rip out a highly derivative yet intoxicating blend of tough mod-rock, '60s soul and garage crunch, all blended up with a real 21st century punk rock delivery. Half of the songs are actually covers - from Curtis Mayfield's Impressions to a rare King Floyd b-side (the awesome "Handle With Care") - the other half being some exceptional Tim Kerr originals, all combining to make a winning collection.
If you're at all partial to the Texan garage scene (spearheaded mostly by Mr. Kerr himself), or the In The Red "sound" (raw no-BS rock'n'roll) or perhaps a sonic mix of the Who, MC5, Stones, Curtis, Sly Stone, Booker T. and Ann Peebles, then this disc will likely float yer boat.!SllghAjB!zOhLmrwg11IHB7koGfRrVRlXm0ihQgjegqeAfrTyObg

He was described by author Johnny Rogan as a cross between Buddy Holly, Warren Zevon and John Denver .His late 60's session career as a guitarist-for-hire saw him backing Del Shannon, Jackie DeShannon, Gram Parsons and Linda Ronstadt. He contributed to Mama Michelle Phillips debut solo album, Victim Of Romance (1977). His band Southwind shared stages with the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers. He also found fame in the New Wave era, when he was backed by Gary Valentine, former bass player for Blondie and was produced by Craig Leon .
