hi-fi862013Following the recent tragic announcement regarding his uncle’s health issues, guitarist Stevie Young has once again taken up the position of rhythm guitarist in AC/DC, something he first did back in 1988. Before that though he was a member of a hotly tipped Birmingham based rock band known as the Starfighters. Here Uber Rock’s Johnny H dons his second hand mac and looks back at their 1981 self titled debut record, a long lost classic that is right up there with the likes of Rose Tattoo, Krokus and Trust.

meansteedmix86It's been a while since we last had Harrow hooligans Meansteed on Uber Rock so we though we'd tap Alison Curry (ahem) for her mixtape choices. So with the Steed currently in the studio putting the finishing touches to what is sure to be a stomping debut album Alison took a quick timeout to pull together a thirteen track mixtape masterclass. And boy, the girl done good!

Rocket Dolls frontWhen a band knocks on the door of URHQ proclaiming to be a mix of Def Leppard, Nirvana and Kings X you can bet your bottom dollar we are going to sit up and take notice of them, even if The Rocket Dolls have within their ranks a drummer who is the son of a multi-platinum selling guitarist, which could put a dent in their metal street cred (hmmm). Duly impressed we set the Brighton based trio the ultimate challenge, to map out their influences with just 13 songs to do it in, they did it in 12 making us wonder if this really is the Midnite Mixtape Massacre to end them all?
