Rival Sons – “Keep On Swinging” – And Gibson Sessions

Here is a cool acoustic version of the lead song of this weeks episode of The Noize Faktory, “Keep On Swinging” from the Rival Sons.  These guys continue to impress and get better with everything they do.

This week Scott Holiday was my guest, and this is a great showcase of his talent, and the talent and power of the rest of the band.

Love this clip.

Aerosmith – “One Way Street” Live

Not a whole lot needs to be said here.  Aerosmith, one of America’s greatest rock bands, still kicking ass after 40 some years.  This is a fairly recent live recording of one of the classic tracks from their very first album.  “One Way Street” features a killer solo from Brad Whitford and another from Perry, some of the greatest groove that the band ever laid down, and a great lyric from Steven.

Watch it, love it, and hear the original studio version in Hour 1 of The Noize Faktory this week.

Kadavar – “Doomsday Machine” Official Video

If  any of you have taken a listen to Kadavar, you know that they are not a Death Metal band as the name might make you think.  They are like a time machine that takes you back to the psychedelic early 70’s heavy rock.  I find elements of Sabbath, Uli Roth era Scorpions, and boogie that reminds me of Cactus.  Not only does the album cover look like it was shot in 1971, but the official video for “Doomsday Machine” looks like it may have been shot in 1971 as well!

So strap yourself in, make sure you have enough plutonium for the trip back, and get that Delorean up to 88 MPH and transport yourself back to 1971 (its really 2013….weird!), and just kick back and enjoy!

Motorhead – “Overkill” Live In HD

Not a whole lot needs to be said about Lemmy, or Motorhead in general.  He is one of the most genuine people in this business, and it is always a pleasure to be in his presence.  This is a great clip of Motorhead in fantastic HD, doing “Overkill”, which we open this weeks Noize Faktory, and is also the song that gave us this weeks title.

Episode 14 – Only Way To Feel The Noise Is When Its Good and Loud

The music continues this week here on the Noize Faktory. Some more new songs from some of the recent albums we have been talking about over the last couple of weeks, and lots of or your favorites mixed in.

Hour 1 – We start the show in grand fashion with a little Motorhead, Motley Crue, and The Scorpions. I have some new tracks from Queensryche, Winery Dogs, and StoneRider in this hour, and tracks from Van Halen, Type O Negative, Tesla, and Aerosmith round out the hour.

Hour 2 – The opening block of this show features some epic tracks from Black Sabbath, Brand New Sin, and Orchid, and then we get into some killer new blues rock from Pat Travers Band. I also play new tracks from Deep Purple and Kadavar in this hour, along with some Ram Jam, DBA, Cactus, and the Rival Sons.

Hour 3 – New music from Love And A .38, another new track from our friends in Mach 22, and new tracks from Screaming Eagles and Scorpion Child. W.A.S.P., Slaughter, Ted Nugent with Meatloaf on vocals, Slash Feat. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, and Cheap Trick all have some great tracks in this hour, and I have a track from Angora, John Corabi’s band before The Scream filling out the show.

Whitesnake – “Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City” (1978)

For those of you American rock fans that only remember Whitesnake from SLIDE IT IN, and the 1987 monster WHITESNAKE, the bands beginnings were full of blues and soul, and it all started in the late 70’s.

After the demise of Deep Purple in 1976, Coverdale went on his way with a couple of soulful solo albums, before putting together the band Whitesnake.  David’s version of the blues classic “Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City” was on their debut release SNAKEBITE, and it instantly became a hit in the UK, and propelled the band to success around the UK and then Europe, and then over to Asia.  The US, was a little slow on the up take.

This is a promo clip of the band performing “Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City”, the original studio version from SNAKEBITE.  You can hear the expanded live version from 1980 at the end of hour 1 in this weeks Noize Faktory.

The Sweet – “Action”

The 2nd track of this weeks show is “Action” from The Sweet.  Everyone knows these guys for “Ballroom Blitz” and maybe “Fox On The Run”.  For artists like Motley Crue and Billy Idol’s Steve Steven’s these guys had a huge impact.  The Sweet were one of the bands that came out of the glam movement of the early 70’s, and as you dig into some of their material you see how great of straight up rock band they really were.  Great riffs, lots of swing and swagger, and some incredible layered harmony vocals.

This one is a cut that has been covered many times, and this video clip is a TV promo from 1975.  Enjoy!

Kiss – “Love Her All I Can”

The song that this new episode gets its title from is Kiss’ “Love Her All I Can”, from their 3rd LP Dressed To Kill.  This is one of those fun album tracks that Kiss fans have carried with them since 1975.  Anthrax did a great cover of this song, featuring Gene and Paul singing the harmonies during the verses during the Sound Of White Noise sessions, you could find it as a b-side to their single “Black Lodge”.

This is a song that dates back to Gene and Paul’s pre-Kiss days, from their band Wicked Lester.  Wicked Lester recorded a full length LP that was never officially released.  Thanks to the internet and YouTube most of the material that was on that album can be found online.

Here is Wicked Lester’s version of what became a Kiss album classic, “Love Her All I Can”.

Episode 13 – When The World Looks Bad, She’s Never Sad

Here we are, Episode Lucky 13!  Already a week into August, and we have lots of cool new music for you this week.  Classic Rock Magazine helped out in a big way this week.  Their new issue features Black Sabbath on the cover, and the sampler that comes with it is chuck full of great new bands, some of them don’t even have albums out yet, just a few singles.  I dig into that group of bands this week, and much much more.

Hour 1 – We start in grand fashion with a classic from the Cult “Wild Flower” from their Electric album, followed by a track from Kiss’ Dressed To Kill.  We have new music from The Pat Travers Band, he has a new CD out called CAN DO, as well as a new live album, Pat has found his 70’s roots again, and this new CD shows just how strong he still is. We wrap the hour with Whitesnake, and the 1980 live version of “Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City”.

Hour 2 – Lots of new music in this hour from Voodoo Six, Todd Kerns, Kadavar, Love And A .38, and StoneRider!  I go in to the lost classics for tracks from Vandenberg, The James Gang, Hurricane, and ZZ Top as well.

Hour 3 – You can never go wrong with anything from the band Scorpion Child, so we start the hour with “Kings Highway” off of their self titled release.  I have another new tune from Alice In Chains in this hour, as well as new music from Screaming Eagles and Monster Truck.  We wind the hour down with Aerosmith and their cover of “Shakey Ground” from the Temptations.  And to finish the show this week we play a little Doors, as we remember Ray Manzarek who passed away recently.

The Scorpions – “Tease Me, Please Me” Live Wacken Open Air 2006

The Scorpions formed in 1965 in Germany, Rudolph Schenker started this little band, and after a few key member changes the band landed a deal and released their first album, the very unique Lonesome Crow.  As their sound evolved over the next few albums the sound that we know as the Scorpions today, and then they finally broke through in the US in 1979 with the Lovedrive release.

In 1989 they released the album Crazy World, and conquered the then uncharted territory of Russia, and headlined the Moscow Music Peace Festival.  They continued to make albums and tour up until this past year when the band decided it was time to retire.  The Scorpions were always one of my favorite live bands that I ever had the chance to see, and I didn’t get to see them until the late 90’s.

They have 40 years of incredible songs, all of which you should take the time to explore a bit.  It is sad that they have stepped out of the limelight, and I hope they receive the recognition that they deserve as one of the greatest rock acts of all time.
