Sundown Delay - You're in Love with Yesterday #Flyah Review


The original idea of Sundown Delay was to create a final platform (since his former band dissolved) from where Svante Widerström could throw the 10 songs he writes every year into the great nothingness. A one-man band would not only have non-exist issues with drop out members. It would also mean total creative control. But it would also mean no fun. So when old friend Nanne Westerholm offered his service from behind the drums Svante of course was happy. Together they recorded "Catching Up With The Future" 2015. But as a duo they weren't able to play live. To be considered as a band they needed at lest a bass-player.

They found the missing piece in Björn Ericsson and recorded the mini LP "Rubik's Cube Is Fighting Back" which was released in april 2016. The record was critically acclaimed but since drummer Nanne Westerholm left the band in june same year there wasn't too much action.

The replacement was called Tobias Wiik and after playing a few gigs they started to work on new music. The new full-length album "Awaiting The Death Of Rock'nroll" was released in December 2017.

Sundown Delay are back with a new album "Awaiting the Death of Rockn'roll". Ten songs where rock-hard NWOBHM, punk and pub rock as well as clever psychedelia and pop are woven into a sound as individual as unique.
Sundown Delay are based in Alingsås, a dull and sleepy town located about forty-five minutes northeast of Gothenburg, which is otherwise best known as the home of the man who introduced the potato to Sweden, and because the poet Karin Boye went there to commit suicide. Alingsås is also known nationally as the area that can proudly claim the highest number of burnt out medical and care workers on long-term sick leave.
Only a chosen few people in Alingsås know about Sundown Delay. This is despite the fact that their 2015 debut "Catching up with the future" and 2016's critically acclaimed miniLP "Rubik's Cube is Fighting Back" were both crystal clear proof that the bands songwriter Svante Widerström has found an exceptionally good sounding musical recipe.
On "Awaiting the Death of Rockn'roll" the band are even more uncomromising than ever.
The opening track "You're in Love With Yesterday" takes an inexorable grip on the listener and on "Emotional Waste" Sundown Delay sound like high octane pub rock à la Dr. Feelgood mixed with early metal acts in the style of Saxon and Diamond Head. The result is murderously hard. On "In the Valley" the tempo drops but the inensity certainly doesn't. Slide guitars and vocals recorded through a Lesley speaker create an air of psychedelia. "Zeb Macahan" sounds like The Electric Prunes transported to the early eighties metal scene.

Alla P. Gakuba - A Person is a Product of Time Place and Circumstances

Alla P. Gakuba's short stories are lengthy and full of information whether from historical periods to relate to current times. The twenty short stories detail infamous events such as Napoleon's rise and fall to American women receiving rights to vote. Another of the short stories was about Maslow's Theory describing the five steps of life and achievements. This book is inspiring and gives insight into the mentality of many great people who contributed to society, helped others in times of need and become more self-aware. Alla talked about her time as a engineer being changed from constructing buildings to bridges with no guidance given to her. Even after transferring from Africa to U.S.A. for an engineering job, Alla was puzzled that she earned the job but she strive to achieve her goals. In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
