The Howlers hail from the south coast of NSW – and are a band you need to keep on your rock ‘n’ roll radar.

Rockbrat Introduces You To: KANAKO NAKAYAMA & VOODOO HAWAIIANS

I have long been a fan of Kanako Nakayama – who is every bit as rock ‘n’ roll as Joan Jett. She is the real deal, and for the better part of almost twenty years has fronted her own band, the amazing VooDoo Hawaiians, a band whom I big fan of. In the 1980s, Kanako … Continue reading Rockbrat Introduces You To: KANAKO NAKAYAMA & VOODOO HAWAIIANS

Rockbrat Introduces You To: CARLY JAMISON

When it comes to new rock n roll, separating the cream from the crap is often the hardest part.  There are so many artists out there, all using the same media platforms to try to reach an audience. So many artists have great websites and are versed at self-promotion. Which is all well and good, … Continue reading Rockbrat Introduces You To: CARLY JAMISON

Rockbrat Introduces You To: Claudine Longet

There are certain female singers from the 1960s whom I dig. I have always been a Nancy Sinatra fan, and even though I have sold off 90% of my once 2000+ record collection, I still have every one of her LPs. Ann Margaret is another, as is  Australia’s own Judy Stone. Yet of late, I’ve … Continue reading Rockbrat Introduces You To: Claudine Longet

Rockbrat Introduces You To: Rock Podcasts and Internet Radio you should be listening to

If you are like me, you no doubt spend far too many hours sitting in front of a screen. For many, this is a choice.

Rockbrat Introduces You To: Stacie Collins

I’ve been listening exclusively to Stacie Collins of late, and her new album ‘Roll The Dice’. Man, is she good, and to coin an often overused term, is the ‘real deal’. Anyone who has the great Dan Baird and Warner Hodges in her corner has to be top shelf, as they don’t pin their hard … Continue reading Rockbrat Introduces You To: Stacie Collins

Rockbrat Introduces You To: Angela Aames (1956-1988)

It was only after watching Pacino in Scarface a few weeks back, when I re noticed Angella Aames, one of Hollywood’s brightest stars from the late 70s / early 80s. Aames is a name that is largely forgotten now, but for anyone who ever saw Bachelor Party in the mid 80s, the buxom blonde left … Continue reading Rockbrat Introduces You To: Angela Aames (1956-1988)

OK, here’s one for the ladies.

TNT were signed to Atlantic Records - and whilst they didn’t  become house hold names ala Jon … Continue reading Rockbrat Introduces You To: MORTY BLACK (TNT)

Rockbrat Introduces You To: Stevie Young and Starfighters

Whilst I'm in an AC/DC mood – and why wouldn’t you not be, I thought I’d delve a little deeper into the Young family tree and pen a few words about two relatives of the famous Young brothers – being nephew Stevie Young. This is particularly relevant to yesterday’s post on Alex Young, as Stevie is … Continue reading Rockbrat Introduces You To: Stevie Young and Starfighters
