Diamond Dogs – ‘Honked All Over Again’ (Wild Kingdom)

Look up the term “kick-ass rock ‘n’ roll” in the Oxford Dictionary Of Musical Terminology and you will see a number of references. One of them, of course, is this very website that you are reading at this exact moment in time, as we have been delivering exactly that for the past decade… and another will be legendary Swedish glunkers Diamond Dogs, who have been doing the same since the early part of the 1990s and are serving us a reminder of their collective genius with this, the latest in a series of re-issues from their first decade of kickin’ those very same asses…

Clutch/Crowbar/Blacktop Mojo/Saul – ‘Live From The Doom Saloon’ – 27 May 2020

It’s time for another lockdown live-stream gig, which Jonny B guesses is almost like the nicorette of the music world. It may go towards quelling the live music cravings but it’s still not quite the same! Nevertheless, here at ÜRHQ we’re continuing to make the best of what we can get, so JB was sent to the comfort of his own lounge to enjoy a gig with two bands he's pretty familiar with, and another two who are completely new to him. Tonight is the aptly named “Doom Saloon” live event hosted by one of JB's favourites – Clutch, with support from Crowbar, Blacktop Mojo and Saul, all for the incredibly reasonable price of $9, which is a bit of a steal really!
