Colin 2015 3Back in 1983 the album ‘False Gestures For A Devious Public’ somehow managed to merge the very best elements of punk rock and shock rock and propelled itself into the world as a cataclysmic 11 track rock ‘n’ roll insurrection.

The band I’m talking about of course are The Blood, and today exclusively for Uber Rock, The Cardinal, the band’s singer and spokesman reveals the thirteen songs that help make his band so extraordinarily brilliant.

HiFi86After leaving Generation X, Tony James went about forming a "fantasy band" and the resulting outfit, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, affected many of the Uber Rock Massive. One in particular, Ben Hughes, though stopping short of covering his face in torn fishnets, became obsessed with the enfant terribles of the mid-eighties pop charts. 1986's 'Flaunt It' surely is Hi-Fi To Die For.....

soulfiresaintsSoul Fire Saints is a heavy ‘riff rock’ band from Sheffield who claim to be just five normal(ish) working class lads who write and perform their own unique brand of heavy riff-rock.
