Hello all, this week I am replaying the Best Of 2013 Episode. This is a great look back on many of the great releases that we were blessed with this year, and we should give Thanks!
I lost a couple of days this week traveling back from Oz so I thought a nice way to make sure we had a show for the week was to take a good look back at the best of the year.
I will be back with a new episode next week, but lets all take a listen to the best of 2013 and rejoice in the fact that we had so much new music for the soundtrack of rebellion! Rock N’ Roll!
Welcome to Episode 31 of The Noize Faktory, we are closing in on the end of 2013, and we celebrate with Friday the 13th, just before the big holiday! That is truly Rock N’ Roll. On December 9th, 1973, Deep Purple debuted their new line up for the first time, featuring bassist Glenn Hughes, and unknown vocalist David Coverdale. Today we will feature the debut album from this Mark III lineup of Deep Purple, the incredible BURN!
Hour 1- We open this show the only way that we can with the title track from Purple’s 1973 release, and the hour builds with tracks from the Scorpions, Ozzy, Dirty Streets, Ted Nugent and more. I play you a track from early Fleetwood Mac, from their newly re-released and remastered Live In Boston collection and we have another new track from the Dead Daisies. We also play you one of the other full tilt rock songs from Deep Purple’s BURN called “Lay Down, Stay Down”.
Hour 2 – Leslie West starts the hour with his new recording of the Mountain classic “Long Red” the song that has been sampled and used by more rappers than any other classic rock song that I can find. Odd! Tracks from Billy Gibbons’ pre-ZZ band The Moving Sidewalks, Cheap Trick, Kiss, BTO, Rival Sons, StoneRider and Love And A .38 fill up the hour. We feature the unbelievable “Sail Away” and an incredible live version of “Mistreated” for the Deep Purple BURN tracks in this our.
Hour 3 – After Purple, Coverdale took a couple of the songs from BURN with him, along with Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice. I have a live take of “Might Just Take Your Life” from an early line up of Whitesnake, from their Live In The Heart Of The City album, this track was on the 1978 portion that we in the States didn’t see until years and years later. For the last track featured from BURN on this show I play the 2004 remix of the album track “You Fool No One”, which has a great drum intro from the amazing Ian Paice. The hour is full of great songs, including new music from Alter Bridge, Winery Dogs, Twenty Two Hundred, and the Walking Papers.
Firstly, I want to thank all of you who have been listening to this little show now for 30 episodes! I am truly glad that you are enjoying it as much as I am right now, and we have lots of great interviews and music to come.
Hour 1 – This show opens with a couple of classic LA bands, Quiet Riot and Van Halen, fitting as I recorded the show in LA this week. The hour is full of music, including some new tracks from The Winery Dogs, Leslie West feat. Mark Tremonti, and Tom Keifer. The Dead Daisies make their Noize Faktory debut this week with a track from their new album called “Lock N Load” featuring Slash on the lead guitar.
Hour 2 – Some classic Scorpions opens this hour, from back in the early 70’s long before anyone here in the US knew who they were, then some early Whitesnake, and a great album track from Aerosmith’s TOYS IN THE ATTIC. Then I have some newer tunes from Alice In Chains, Kadavr, Sabbath and the Cult. To close this hour I go back to the 60’s for one of the bands that was part of the early hard rock movement Steppenwolf.
Hour 3 – The final hour of the 30th episode begins with a bonus track from Scorpion Child, and to carry on that theme I dug into the vaults for some more rarely heard bonus tracks from Ozzy, Queensryche, and Tony Montana. I play you a couple of more new tracks from Orchid and The Temperance Movement, mixed in with some classic stuff from Motley Crue, Judas Priest, and Def Leppard, and then we close the show with a cover of Aerosmith’s “Back In The Saddle” performed by Sebastian Bach and Axl Rose.
