VIDEO OF THE WEEK – CRO-MAGS

Despite the current lockdown, we are still receiving a healthy bundle of submissions for our coveted ‘Video Of The Week’ title. While some artists are trying to find new ways of visually interpreting their songs, others obviously have had the guts of their filming completed in advance of the global quarantine, with the finishing touches being added in isolated post-production.

The BIG Über Rock Interview – Adrian Goleby (Caligula’s Horse)

Earlier this month, our resident proggie, Jase W, reviewed ‘Rise Radiant’, the excellent new album from Australian progsters Caligula’s Horse, which is released next week via InsideOut Music. Well, they must have liked what he had to say about it, as the next thing he know he’d been invited to fire some questions across the interweb to the land down under, and specifically to guitarist Adrian Goleby, to ask about the album, songwriting, his memories of touring in different territories and choosing setlists…

Dennis DeYoung – ’26 East: Volume 1’ (Frontiers Music)

Robert Jon & The Wreck – ‘Last Light On The Highway’ (Self-Released)

Robert Jon & The Wreck are so deeply infused in the country-blues-meets-gospel end of the southern rock mien that it comes as somewhat of a surprise to find out that they actually hail from the sunny climes of California’s infamous Orange County rather than the other side of the USofA, as their sound is more reminiscent of Alabama, the Carolinas or even the Bayou than that of the West Coast.
