Ladies and Gentlemen, children of all ages, we have reached our 24th hour at the Noize Faktory!  In celebration I have put together a show that looks back on some of the best new albums to come out since I started the show back up 6 months ago.

Rock fans are very lucky, we have been given some great music in the last half year, and I cram in a few extra songs in this episode to make sure that I cover as many of my favorites as I can.

From new bands, to some legacy acts that many may have counted out, to those bands that are the definite future of rock, we have some incredible new albums to listen to, and even more live bands that we should all be looking forward to seeing.

The Noize Faktory Hour 23

The Noize Faktory Hour 23

Well another week has passed, and we have witnessed more truly deplorable behavior in the news.  No matter what side of the issues you fall on, attacking innocent people, and attempting to silence free speech should truly bother you.  This kind of idiot behavior has to stop.  Funny enough, this kind of thing actually makes more people attract to the ones attempting to be stifled, so its very counter productive, but I wouldn’t expect the people a party to that to understand, they clearly are not smart enough to grasp that concept.

In good news, the Rock Hall Of Fame aired its induction ceremony this past weekend on HBO, with the edited Steve Miller speech.  Unfortunate, more censorship, but some of the performances were great.  In my opinion Cheap Trick stole the show as far as performances went, with Chicago a close second.  One of my favorite bands Deep Purple was finally inducted, kind of, with the glaring omissions of a few members, and the absence of the late Jon Lord, and legendary Blackmore.  They have continued to make great albums, but I thought that Ian Gillan struggled live, which was hard for me to watch, but the band rocked.  I was very happy to see Coverdale and Hughes be included, and it was nice that they got up for the jam with Cheap Trick at the end.  The Cheap Trick performance was loud, noisy, off the wall, and powerful as you would expect, and they have an incredible new album out called Bang, Zoom, Crazy…Hello! that you should all give a listen.  Chicago was slighted by the Hall as well, only inducting the original line up, ignoring guys that have been with them since the mid-eighties, and were part of some big hits, but their performance was great.  And I have to say that Kid Rock gave one of the best induction speeches in Rock Hall history for Cheap Trick!  Well done!

Now on to the music, remember play it loud!

The Noize Faktory Hour 22

The Noize Faktory Hour 22

Happy Monday everyone!  I don’t think I’ve ever had anyone say that to me.

Just returned from a logistical nightmare of three weeks, and I brought back a stomach bug from Mexico.  So I’m a bit out of it at the moment.  Luckily I recorded this weeks Noize Faktory a couple of days before that all set in.

Click play, turn up your speakers as loud as they go, and rock!

The Noize Faktory Hour 21

The Noize Faktory Hour 21

I have to start this week off by apologizing for the quality of my voice on this installment of your favorite hour of music.  Being the klutz that I am, and the constant traveler, I drag my microphones around the globe to record this show weekly, and have since I started it way back when.  This week I got to LA, checked into my hotel room, and its a great spot, lots of space, carpeted floor, and the room even had a fireplace, with a little ceramic tile.  Well out pops the microphone, slips from my hands, and bam, onto the desk, then onto the floor!  Not the carpet of course, but onto the tile.  The two square feet of tile in the entire room!

Well I put it back together, and it worked fine for last weeks show, but it didn’t last.  So as I went to record this weeks show in the middle of nowhere, I discovered that I was mic-less.  I was forced to use the internal, so I sound a little tinty this week in my opinion.  But that didn’t stop me from putting another rocking hour of music together for your listening pleasure!

2) Last Calls & Assholes – We’ve Traveled
