MONARCH (FRANCE) – http://www.myspace.com/monarchuberalles
The amazing Sarabeth Tucek plays St. Brides Church in Liverpool on Saturday 3rd September in support of her latest album ‘Get Well Soon’. Think Neil Young crossed with Cat Power.
Behind The Wall of Sleep are NOT excited to announce that the ORIGINAL Black Sabbath are NOT to reform, tour and record together….the messiahs Osbourne, Iommi, Butler and Ward will NOT record and tour 2012. The Birmingham Mail Journalist made the story up….least for us we got to run a story on BLACK SABBATH and have their picture up!!
Speaking to the Birmingham Mail, Tony Iommi had this to say:
‘‘We’re really looking forward to it and I think the stuff we’ve been writing is really good,’’ said 63-year-old Iommi. ‘‘It’s more back to the old original stuff.’’
He added that the reunion has been kept under wraps for some time.
‘‘It’s all been very hush-hush. Ozzy’s been the worst at trying to hold it back. He’s doing a lot of TV and he’s being asked stuff about a reunion and he’s going ‘well I never say never’.
UK Doom Metal Legends CATHEDRAL will play their last ever gig on Saturday 3rd December 2011 at the London Forum, and with former former bass player Scott Carlson of Repulsion and Death Breath back in the fold it should be a truly legendary event. Support comes from the amazing GENTLEMANS PISTOLS, GRAND MAGUS AND COMUS who all feature on Lee Dorrians record label RISEABOVE RECORDS.

Monobrow – ‘Monobrow’ Tshirt/CD Album – Lancashire and Somerset Records.
Being asked to write a review of your own “bands” release is a bit fucking weird I admit it, but if anyone should do it I’d rather I do it than someone who’ll come out with annoying bullshit about Monobrow sounding like Band A on crack cocaine, or Band B getting rid of an unwanted christmas gift via the use of petrol and a lighter.
This recording was done in December 2009 I think, in one day. 5 drum kits, saxaphone, violin, oboe and two pedal boards with screaming children attached to each. Given Monobrow’s forever loose collective of members who I hadn’t fell out with / they fell out with me yet, we at times, like this recording actually managed to do that rarest of things, improv where people actually listen to what everyone else is doing. yes. holy shit etc.
It’s a good record if you like chaotic noise, shouting, and loads and loads of drums going off all over the place, and there’s over an hour of it. If you managed to see us live well done, we were pretty lazy as far as gigging is concerned outside of the Liverpool area, and the honest reason for that is I generally end up hating every gig I do outside of Liverpool, irrespective of how the gig goes. So anyway buy it, it’s really good, and it comes in a bundle with pretty much the best band tshirt I’ve ever seen. What are you still doing here?
