R_Ramone_ThmbThe curiosity factor of seeing one of the last surviving Ramones giving the band's back catalogue one last shoeing has dragged a healthy smattering of die-hards along with a very curious Andrew Johnston out to the Camden Underworld on a wet and windy Tuesday night. That's right, Uber Rock was there to witness mid-'80s Ramones drummer Richie perform alongside London's all-girl tribute to his former combo, the Ramonas, and here's how the night shaped up.

Korn_PathMasters of nu-metal Korn are back with their tenth studio album and are ready to confuse the fuck out of their hardcore fans by going 'dubstep'. Yup, you read that correctly, dubstep!!! Ross Welford puts down his hair straighteners and Elnett hairspray in shock and tries to figure out if this is perhaps the biggest career mistake since Chris Cornell worked with Timbaland or in fact a work of true genius.

Hard_Rock_Hell_thmbNow into its fifth year the UK's Hard Rock Hell festival is becoming something of an institution with those of us with a bent for hard drinking and hard rock music. Spread over 3 nights and 4 days there are more quality bands than it is humanly possible to watch with just one body so that's why we had Mark Taylor, Mark Ashby and Johnny H covering last weekend's events. Prepare for a few shocks and surprises as URHQ enters the Village Of The Damned.

Mark Ashby checks out the band's 'Resurrection Of An American Heretic' album and finds songs destined to become classics of the genre.....

Justice_BadgeIt's not very often that we discuss football, politics and music in the same place here on Uber Rock, too much inter club/party rivalry to get in the way of our rock 'n' roll brotherly love. However when we got whiff of this cracking tour in support of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign we just had to show our support whatever our loyalties. Dom Daley stands in the presence of a true punk rock legend and can't wait to tell you all about it.

W13_Tour_Poster_thmbWhen we heard that Wednesday 13, Michael Monroe and Crashdiet would be sharing the same concert stage right here in the UK, we thought "Wow that's a bill that any self respecting Uber Rocker would be dragging their private parts over broken glass just to get to". Andrew Johnston picks up the story of this winter's "to die for" glam rock package tour, but were you brave enough to go?

El_Bronx_thmbChanging out of our regulation pirate costumes and into our charo outfits for an evening of mariachi music, URHQ had a very early Xmas party recently as Mariachi El Bronx rolled into Cardiff as part of a huge world tour in support of their second album. The office's very own Antonio Banderas (ha) picks up his sombrero and pen and prepares to get all passionate (double ha) as we bring you 'uber folk!'

Venom_Fallen_AngelsLucky album 13 from the kings of black metal - Venom, and Darrel Sutton is something he is not very often...he's actually "lost for words". No, his teacher hasn't caught him masturbating underneath the desk; he's simply been blown away by Cronos and crew's latest opus. With his knee length Doc Martens very much out of the closet Sutton's about to lay down his soul to the gods rock 'n' roll. You fancy joining him?

flashbastardGFH86When Rich Jones of The Loyalties pointed Uber Rock in the direction of 'Rock N' Roll Must Be Destroyed', the long lost album from US glam punks Flash Bastard, little we know that we would suddenly be listening to one of the most badass releases of 2011. And if the record wasn't cool enough in itself, then the band's history will certainly make you sit up and take notice; signed to Nikki Sixx's record label and kicked off a Motley Crue/Scorpions tour for threatening to kill Klaus Meine with a pitchfork? This is yet another must-read UR interview exclusive as Ben Hughes catches up with the band's frontman Donal Finn......

Issa_thmbThere aren't many places on Uber Rock where you will find references to Marcie Free, Celine Dion and Avril Lavigne other than in a Dave Prince written feature. Somehow he manages to get all three singers mentioned in this rather wonderful chat with Scandinavian AOR sensation Issa and what's more he bags us some awesome signed copies of her album 'The Storm' to give away to you lucky people.
