GHmix86Uber Rock reviewed 'Bombs & Bullets', the debut album from female-fronted Australian rockers, Grandhour, recently; now, with a new single and making-of documentary just released there could be no better time to catch up with Nicole and Jason Hawkins from the band to get their collective thirteen song mixtape par excellence.....

ABmix86We can't think of a better band to feature in Uber Rock's Midnite Mixtape Massacre than those pesky Autopsy Boys! Their new album, 'Return Of The Acid Casualty Auto Humans', featured legendary scream queen, Debbie Rochon, so a thirteen-track mixtape would, surely, be unlucky for everyone except you clued-in readers. The band's Lee Brunskjill wiped the gore off a C90 and pressed record.....

Headline ManiacHeadline Maniac feature a trio of Hot Rods, you know as in Eddie and the Hot Rods, and they play a rather spiffing brand of power pop/rock. We were so impressed by their debut album that we asked Dipster, Chris and Simon to pick their thirteen songs and give the Midnite Mixtape a dose of ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Thuggery’. Hit the magic link then to uncover their selections.

jambo2mix86JD & the FDCs officially release their second album, 'Anatomy Of A Wolf', next week so, after grabbing an exclusive interview with the mainman last weekend, we thought we'd give him some competition and ask bassist Joey Strange to compile his ultimate thirteen song mixtape exclusively for Uber Rock. Yes, it's another Midnite Mixtape Massacre!

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. The simple fact that they play their own music and don’t simply take the easy route of playing the UK’s oversaturated cover/tribute band scene was enough for us to offer the guys their very own slot on Uber Rock’s Midnite Mixtape Massacre. So hit the link and discover something new this Sunday.

Jeff ThmbNext month UK thrashers Onslaught hit the road with Artillery and Hatriot in what is being called the ‘Thrash Invasion 2014’ tour. So to mark this occasion we thought it would be a cool idea to ask Jeff Williams bassist in Onslaught to put together his very own Midnite Mixtape Massacre centred around what he listens to whilst on the road. Jeff being Jeff this feature comes with a special twist, as in he’s given a whole iPod’s worth of stuff to get through rather than just a C90. Hit the link to find out more.

Ladies and gentlemen of the Überverse we give you Pound Of Flesh and their twisted yet sublime thirteen track Midnite Mixtape. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Trigger ThbNext weekend backdoor rock ‘n’ rollers Trigger McPoopshute get to open for glunk rock uber lords The Chuck Norris Experiment on their first ever UK shows on the rather appropriately titled ‘Fuck Download’ tour.. With Chuck Ransom and his men also sharing a van with the four psychos from Abertillery Rock City we thought it only right that Trigger compile their very own C90 with which to entertain their touring partners. The result? One hell of a Midnite Mixtape Massacre.
