We’re back with the rear end of Kerrang 240. We’ve got Ladykillers! No longer a pervy request for readers to send in saucy pics, it’s now a salute to WOMEN IN ROCK. We look at a few WOMEN IN ROCK (and possibly invent some, “borrowing” a game from The Word Podcast). We talk about Grace Slick (and Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship/Starship), and, in number 38 in our continuing series of people we didn’t expect to see in a metal magazine, Tori Amos. Elsewhere we have Onslaught (cue some dubious editorial shenanigans from the Kerrang team), Sabbat with a druid based concept album, which sounds a bit Spinal Tap, and actual Spinal Tap.
Soundgarden are in the gig reviews and we consider the best cover version of Black Hole Sun we’ve ever heard. In our non Kerrang related meanderings we consider Indiana Jones, Right Said Fred’s non I’m Too Sexy ouevre, Whitney Houston and the Narada Michael Walden bass glide, Do The Bartman, The Cable Guy, and The Star Wars Holiday Special.
We also introduce our new feature, Deep Kutz, and let you in on some “exciting” new developments with the podcast
