A new episode, and a brand new band to debut. Walking papers is great new band that features some familiar names and faces, with a powerful new sound for them all. Jeff Angell on vocals and guitar from the band Post Stardom Depression, and Barrett Martin on drums are the song writing duo for this new act. They are joined by Ben Anderson on keys, and Duff McKagan of GNR / VR fame on bass. Mike McCready even plays a couple of guitar solos on the disc.
The songs are deep on this album, the sound is well refined, and yet has a rawness to it that is compelling. This is one of my favorite tracks from the disc, it is called “The Whole World Is Watching”. We should all be listening!
This is a video of the band performing for the Antiquiet Sessions.

This is one of the tracks from the Rival Sons self-titled EP, “Get What’s Coming”. This is a really cool video clip of the band performing for what appears to be a video shoot. This is a great quality pro shot video, for a killer song.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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 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!

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”.
