Episode 16 – Built With Stolen Parts…​

Thank you for the huge response to last weeks episode with Scott Holiday of the Rival Sons! I am glad that so many of you found something great about the show and their music. I had a near religious experience this past Tuesday when I got to see the band live in a small club in Indianapolis. Truly an unbelievable performance, as good as the very first time that I saw them, if not better. I hope that we see and hear much more from this band in the future, wake up America! Everyone else is already getting it!

Hour 1 – This weeks episode starts off with a strong hour of heavy rockers, and features new music from Bad Barber, Winery Dogs, Oliva, and the debut of the new track from Alter Bridge. Myles and company have a new album coming out called FORTRESS, and the first single is “Addicted To Pain” which you get to enjoy here. Check out the track from Australia’s Tracer, and the title track to Trouble’s last album with vocalist Eric Wagner, “Simple Mind Condition”. I close this hour with a great unplugged version of “I Will Remember” from Queensryche.

Hour 2 – New music from Pat Travers Band, Love And A .38, Graveyard, and our friends in Monster Truck, who I had the chance to see live a few times in the last couple of weeks. I include a little live block in this hour with some classics from Zeppelin, Aerosmith, and Deep Purple as well.

Hour 3 – This hour is loaded with some more great new tracks from Black Star Riders, Daniel Davies, Orchid, StoneRider, Scorpion Child, Ugly Kid Joe, and Screaming Eagles. I also include a few classics from Cinderella, Robin Trower, and Whitesnake.

Enjoy this weeks episode and be sure to drop me your comments at, or leave some thoughts comments, or whatever else might be on your mind at our Facebook or Twitter pages.

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.

Episode 15 – Artist Feature – Scott Holiday of The Rival Sons

This week we have a special treat for you all.  Guitarist Scott Holiday of the Rival Sons is with us, as we take a trip through the bands new and exciting history this week on The Noize Faktory.

This interview was conducted over the phone, while Scott was moving through Los Angeles, there are a few noise issues at times in the interview, but I think it turned out great overall, and it was great having Scott on.

Hour 1 – We start the show in grand fashion, with the lead single from HEAD DOWN, the bands latest release, and then go back to the beginning of their recording career.  We cover tracks and history from their first full length release BEFORE THE FIRE, and their self titled EP.

Hour 2 – Scott tells us about the recording of PRESSURE & TIME, the Rival Sons real break through release, and the extensive touring that the band has been doing, and how things have changed for them overseas with their success.  We return to HEAD DOWN to round out the hour.

Hour 3 – The episode concludes with a few more tracks from HEAD DOWN, and then some bonus tracks to finish off the show, and Scott gives us a little inside info on what the band may be doing next.

I want to thank Scott Holiday of the Rival Sons for calling in to do this interview, and spend some time with The Noize Faktory this week.  The band is about to begin a tour supporting Sammy Hagar here in the US, and have just done some festivals in Europe this past week.

Scott also told us that Robin Everhart, bassist for the Rival Sons is no longer with the band.  He has stepped down to spend more time with his family.  I am sure that there has been a long line of players pursuing the band about that job.  We wish Robin all the best, he was a major player in the sound and direction of this band, and he will be missed.

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.
