It's that time again....CHRISTMAS! That perfect time to give the gift of music.
TMG and it's imprints have all sorts of great music available this Yuletide
season, beginning with the much ballyhoo'd release from Alan
Davey's Eclectic Devils 'Live at SRS 2011'.
Alan and band roar through many of Alan's greatest hits during his stints with Hawkwind,
Bedouin, solo and of course, the Eclectic Devils. Also
available is the stunning new CD from Mindset X, entitled, 'Mindset
X' featuring the singles 'Dirty L'il Freak', 'Lilith' and 'Everybody Wants To
Be Me' . What better holiday gift can someone receive than a little hard rock
in their stocking. If your tastes veer towards the more cerebral side of the music
landscape, how about hanging some Hemlok along with the mistletoe. That would be
Hemlok, the band. Wouldn't want to hurt anyone...would we? Listening to
the progressive rock sounds of the bands latest CD, 'A Cautionary Tale' has
been known to cause people to heat up a bit of nog, add a little rum and....PLAY
SOME AIR VIOLIN! These are just a few of the new releases available through Amazon,
ITunes, Rhapsody, Spotify, CD Baby, Super D Distribution, Local brick & mortars
and coming soon, right through our very own TMG store at our website [about damn
time]. Feel free to browse through the releases, choose one, or two, or even three,
four or more. There's bound to be something that a family member would enjoy. Perhaps
even a little gift for yourself, maybe? Nudge, Nudge, Wink, Wink...say no more.
Oops, I've got to get going myself. Have a Happy Holiday!
"On Rudolf, On Blitzen, On Prancer and Dancer,
On Whatsyourname, On Whosit and......Oh, nevermind!"
Available for Christmas
2011... Alan Davey's Eclectic Devils - Live at SRS 2011...performing the greatest
hits from Alan's career in Hawkwind, The Eclectic Devils, Bedouin and as a solo
artist. Featuring the songs Angel Down, Wings, LSD, Greenback Massacre
and others great tunes. A definite 'MUST HAVE'.
With songs like
Dirty L'il Freak, Everybody Wants To Be Me and Boy Meets Girl, it's only a matter
of time before Mindset X breaks into the big time. Mindset X is a truly classic
CD where every song has the potential to be a hit single. Hear why the person that
discovered Rush calls this band "one of her favorites". Produced by
Brian Sachs at Drumlin Downe Studio.
Hemlok's A Cautionary
Tale is a slice of Progressive/ Metal cut with the blade of a knife made of
Folk music. Soaring, poetic, melodic and ethereal sounds combined with a 'take no
prisoners' rhythm section and then add in some fluid guitar work , beautiful and
at times, scathing violin , and you'll begin to understand the allure of Hemlok.
Features the songs Vendetta, Bleed, and Taken. A bit of Hemlok never tasted so good.
of pop sensibilities, Cal Olivier's first ever solo CD 'Wishing On A Well' is stylistically
all over the map, Americana, a bit of Country, some pure Pop, some SKA, Reggae and
some Heavy Rock all feature prominently on this wonderfully listenable joy of a
CD. One thing is certain, however, and that is that Cal Olivier can write a tune.
And that he does, unabashedly writing about failed relationships, sailing the seas,
love, abortion and even about having the muchies. This is one of those albums that
will have you singing, dancing and whooping it up at every listen. Produced by Brian
Coombes at Rocking Horse Studio. Cath Cal on tour this Christmas season with his
new band...Cal Olivier & The Fickle Souls.
More manic mayhem
from our boys in France...Jack Dupon...this time, it's of the 'LIVE' variety. Bascule
A Vif, the two CD live CD is representative of the bands craziness, musicality and
technical proficiency on a live stage. Features the tracks 'Jeudi Poisson' ,'La
Cousine Du Grand Mongol' and the epic 'La Secte Des Mouches'. For fans of Zappa,
Gong, Magma, King Crimson and others of that ilk. WARNING: Jack Dupon music has
been known to cause nosebleeds, panic attacks and interference within the frontal
lobe.....and it's still great fun!
If 'take no prisoners'
hard rock is more to your liking, then your search is over.'Twenty Twelve', the
new EP from Liverpool England trio Signified [we affectionately call them
'The Threetles'] features some of the moset defiant but melodic hard rock
this side of the pond. These boys, Ash, Brian and Keith, know how to rock and bring
the house down. Available as a digital download and special order CD. Featuring
such smokin' tunes as 'You Made Me Up' and 'When In Rome', this music is just the
type of sound that you'll play over and over again. A Spring 2013 US Tour is being
planned. Stay tuned.
We at TMG have
always been fond of bands that think 'outside of the box' and here we have just
such a band...The O.B.E. and it's side project The O.B.E. Show. Released as
'digital only' music, this live, 'as is', warts and all presentation is the brainchild
of multi-instumentalist Paul Davidson, with the premise being a full on, completely
improvisational performance, featuring anyone with any instrument willing to jump
onstage to play along with the beat and melody created by Paul and the members of
this crazy band of ultimate musicians. No rehearsals, no practices... just pure
improv. And these performances have been stunning, to say the least. 'Onward/Upward/Outward'
is the first in a series of upcoming live releases, so stay tuned for more 'on the
spot' brilliance. "It's like a box of chocolates", someone once said,
"you never know what you're gonna get inside"
And don't forget
all of these other fantastic releases that are still available, featuring music
from Jack Dupon, The Soupbone Throne,Soak, Dreamline, Sensitive Orchestra and Mindset
X. Visit the website at www.transitmusicgroup.com or check availability at the usual
