Vinnie Stigma - Agnostic Front - Uber Rock Interview Exclusive Print E-mail
Written by Darrel Sutton   
Sunday, 26 August 2012 04:30
URTV_thmbVinnie Stigma is a name synonymous with the New York Hardcore scene largely due to his 30 years spent playing guitar in scene godfathers Agnostic Front, a band Darrel Sutton has been a lifelong fan of. With this in mind it was something of a humbling experience to witness our scribe bumbling away over a cappuccino with Vinnie recently ahead of what would prove to be an explosive gig in Bristol's Fleece venue later that night. We obviously wanted to share this experience with you, so today URTV proudly presents 30 plus minutes of interview mayhem "Stigma-style".

The_StuffWith the August bank holiday upon us Johnny H has once again opted to stay at home rather than turn up with the hordes to watch a load of dodgy Indie bands playing in a rain swept field somewhere in Berkshire.  Well lucky us we say because as a result he's had time to catch up with some of the many quality vinyl releases we've been sent recently.  Ladies and gentlemen start up your turntables for yet another edition of The Uber Rock Singles Club and a whole load of great new music to discover.

Argy_Bargy_Hopes_jpgapproved_small_2012Taking almost as long to record their albums as Def Leppard, London Oi!/streetpunk mob Argy Bargy clearly like to suffer for their art, and that art of course is songwriting.  Now well into their second decade together as a band Daryl Smith, Watford Jon, Dalbus and Ray Dust think they might have just have released the album of their career, so the four year wait for their fourth long player must have been worth it then?  We asked Johnny H to give us his verdict on the 17 songs that make up 'Hopes Dreams Lies & Schemes'.

Tarja_Act_1Tarja Turunen will most probably almost be remembered for being the ex singer of Nightwish, I mean how could she not be when she spent almost two decades fronting the Finnish symphonic metal giants. Uber Tarja fan Dave Prince is having not of this though as he is all about the legendary singer in the here and now and with this expansive double live collection spanning pretty much all of her career to date who are we to argue with URHQ's prince of parp?

destroyerWhen we got this resurrected version of an already classic album to review from one time kings of the glam rock world KISS, it didn't exactly take us long to find the right person to review it, that's because at URHQ we have one of the most dedicated members of the UK KISS Army's rank and file in Fraser Munro, and if one man is going to tell it like it is it's gonna be him right? So step inside our man's sequinned encrusted KISS shrine (that's his head by the way) and find out if this really is worth paying a fiver for.
