A Korean Lego enthusiast going by the name of Hayarobi has constructed a working turntable using over 2400 pieces of the miniature construction toys.

Known as ‘The Planet,’ the turntable includes a traditional phono cartridge but is otherwise constructed strictly out of Lego parts. Ingeniously, mini Lego car tyres have been used to provide the counterweight on the tonearm.

Hayarobi, who it seems is a fan of vintage synth-pop, has also constructed a remote-controlled Lego bulldozer as well as a dancing Lego version of Spongebob Squarepants.

You can watch and listen to the turntable in action below.

lynyrd

Universal Music will release a Lynyrd Skynyrd vinyl box set at the beginning of December that brings together all their LPs released between 1973 and 1977.

The American rock band’s four studio albums of the era were (Pronounced ‘Leh-’nérd ‘Skin-’nérd) (1973), Second Helping (1974), Nuthin’ Fancy (1975), Gimme Back My Bullets (1976), and Street Survivors (1977). All of those in this set along with live album One More From the Road (1975).

Each LP will have exact reproductions of original artwork and this includes the original ‘fire’ sleeve for Street Survivors that was withdraw in the aftermath of the plane crash tragedy that claimed the lives of  Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines and four others just days after that album’s release.

As you’d expect, all the records are pressed on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl and they are secured in a rigid slipcase box.

The Lynyrd Skynyrd vinyl box set is released on 1 December 2014.

Filter Distortion, a four piece electro band from Liverpool, have finally emerged from a self-imposed year of confinement in a windowless room.  The band set about producing their finest work yet, and have certainly achieved their aim with debut album ‘Transmission’.  Recorded using just 3 microphones, the band wrote and produced all the album’s tracks before mastering with engineer and producer Daniel Woodward at Liverpool’s Whitewood Recording Studio.

According to Liverpool’s Bido Lito Magazine, “Transition swims in front of you like a neon-lit nighttime drive through the streets of Vice City with Depeche Mode blaring out of the stereo”.

‘Transition’ certainly has a distinct eighties electro feel but the band have given that sound a modern twist, with driving guitars and live drums, to create something incredibly powerful.

The band are attracting an ever-increasing following, thanks in part to having their music featured on UK televstion (Channel 4 and LFC TV as well as BBC 6 Music and international radio. Two tracks from the album ‘Cameras in the Dark’ and ‘Neon Nights’ have both been selected as BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson’s Fresh on the Net Fresh Faves.

The album is available as a digital download and limited edition vinyl from selected outlets including Dig Vinyl, Probe Records, Piccadilly Records and mail order via the band’s website.

Release date January 12, 2015

Bridge The Gap features Schenker’s Temple of Rock band, comprising ex-Scorpions Herman Rarebell (drums) and Francis Buchholz (bass), ex-Rainbow vocalist Doogie White and Wayne Findlay (guitar, keyboards).

The new LP includes thirteen adrenalin-fuelled melodic rock’n’roll songs that showcase Schenker’s distinctive and explosive guitar playing, valiantly underpinned by the ferocious rhythm section of Rarebell and Buchholz, marking the first time Schenker, Rarebell and Buchholz have appeared on the same album since the Scorpions’ 1979 Lovedrive.

Vocalist Doogie White, who co-wrote the album with Schenker, soars across every song, and stamps his enthusiastic personality with every note.  Wayne Findlay adds another dimension to the dynamic, classic Schenker sound with his Dean 7 string guitar and keyboard orchestrations.

Bridge the Gap is a thunderous, explosive collection of brand new songs steeped in shades of dark and light.  Musically and lyrically, the new album shows a re-energised guitarist at the top of his game, surrounded by top drawer musicians.

The album, recorded at Kidroom Studios, Germany, was produced by Schenker and co-produced and engineered by Michael Voss.

“I sent material to Doogie in the New Year and he started writing melodies and lyrics,” says Schenker.  There was a lot of energy flying about during the recording process. I had the same drive making this album as I had when I was 16.  I wanted it fast, heavy and melodic.  It felt like bridging the gap from my teenage and Lovedrive years to what I am doing now.  I’m back to where I was a long time ago and I love it.”

“Never having really written with Michael before, apart from When the Devil Knows You’re Dead (from 2011’s Temple of Rock album), I didn’t know how flexible he would be writing wise,” recalls Doogie.”  I recorded some vocal tracks as ideas and when Michael heard them we were off and running.  Within two weeks we were in the studio laying down tracks.”

Schenker admits that when he wrote this album, he tried to get a balance between songs that are heavy, fast and melodic, complimented by his signature guitar solos.

“I wanted to combine the old with the new,” says Schenker. “That’s why the album’s called Bridge The GapWith Wayne playing 7 string guitar we created some low, heavy modern sounds.  Since I play and experiment on a regular basis, I always have some new, fresh sparks to share when I record a new album.  I am inspired from within.  It’s infinite like a kaleidoscope.”

“As former members of the Scorpions, Herman, Francis and I have been out of the loop of rock’n’roll for quite a while.  Getting together for the first time since the Lovedrive album is an incredible jump. We’re connecting the past with the present. We’re bridging the gap.”

Schenker remains philosophical about the name of the new album.  He believes the name reflects what is going on in the fast-moving world around him.

“Everything that is currently going on in this world is showing that people are desperate for change. We need to bridge the gap of poverty. There are too many innocent people getting killed in terrorist attacks. We need to leave all of this chaos behind us.  We have to be strong. We have to continue moving forward, working together in a balanced way.”

Schenker is amazed how melodic the new album turned out, but he still insists the songs still feature a bit of darkness as well.

“I came up with the name of the album, before I even started writing. When Doogie started writing the lyrics to the new songs he had something to go by.”

MICHAEL SCHENKER’S TEMPLE OF ROCK
THE MAKING OF THE NEW ALBUM

Michael Schenker and Herman Rarebell met on and off over the years and eventually decided to do something together.  Schenker hadn’t performed UFO material for a while, and decided to put a touring project together with Best of Michael Schenker material.  Pete Way showed up at one of Schenker’s MSG Shows and appeared to be in good spirit, and was invited to Brighton to jam together. At the same time, Schenker was about ready to start working on a new album. He went to a studio in Muenster to record a demo. Michael Voss was engineering and laid down guide vocals.

Schenker liked his voice and asked Voss if he wanted to do the singing.  When Schenker finished the demo he played it to Pete and Herman. They liked what they heard and immediately offered to become the rhythm section. The result was 2011’s “Temple Of Rock” album which featured guest musicians including Star Trek’s Captain Kirk (William Shatner) who recorded the spoken word intro on the album.  Schenker ended up playing on Shatner’s solo album. Vocalist Doogie White also appeared on the album. Schenker wrote a song specially suited for Doogie’s vocals – “Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead”.

The song became a favourite on the album and was A-listed on Planet Rock radio in the UK. When it was time for Schenker to go on tour, Michael Voss wasn’t available, so he had to find a replacement.

Having Robin McAuley singing on one song, Schenker thought about having different line-ups between Voss, McAuley and Doogie (based on their availability). Voss toured with Schenker in Japan, McAuley toured with Schenker in the USA, and Doogie toured with Schenker in Europe.

Having Robin McAuley singing on one song, Schenker thought about having different line-ups between Voss, McAuley and Doogie (based on their availability). Voss toured with Schenker in Japan, McAuley toured with Schenker in the USA, and Doogie toured with Schenker in Europe.

When Schenker was getting ready for the European tour, he learned that Pete Way was not well so he asked Herman Rarebell what Francis Buchholz was up to due to the fact that Schenker performed several Scorpions songs in his set.  Francis was happy to join for our European tour with Doogie on vocals and Wayne Findlay on guitar and keyboards. The tour was so successful that Schenker decided to film one of the concerts for a live DVD.  The band got stronger and stronger and completed their European tour, but more offers were coming in to perform additional gigs.

Schenker seized the opportunity to record an album after the end of the first leg of their European tour. There was a six month window. Doogie was ready to go for it and so was the rest of the band. Schenker started laying down tracks and gave the material to Doogie so he could start writing the lyrics. Off they went recording with Michael Voss as their engineer/ co-producer. Everything went like clockwork and was finished before the set off to tour Russia in April 2013.

The band toured for another three months in Europe and grew stronger. After finishing the second part of the tour, they got back together and remixed and re-mastered the album.  Entitled “Bridge The Gap”, the album will be released December 2nd 2013.  In 2014, Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock will embark on a North American tour. “We’re ready to rock,” says Schenker.

Deen Castronovo, Jack Blades and Doug Aldrich. Put these three rock titans together in a band and you have the exciting new hard rock/melodic rock supergroup REVOLUTION SAINTS.

Superbly handling drums and lead vocals is Deen Castronovo. Already renowned for his drum talents and backing vocals in Journey, Bad English and more, Deen’s excellent vocal talents are in the spotlight on this release.


Revolution Saints (L-R): Jack Blades (bass, vocals), Deen Castronovo (lead vocals, drums), Doug Aldrich (guitar). Photo Credit: © Jeff Allen at Orion’s Eye Photography

On bass, and co-lead vocals on a few tracks, Jack Blades is well known for his melodic, yet hard rocking approach to songwriting and playing via multiple classic albums by his main band Night Ranger, as well as with the Damn Yankees and the Shaw/Blades releases.

On guitar, Doug Aldrich was excited to lend his fiery blues guitar attack to such a unique and melodic band. Doug, who just left Whitesnake after a fruitful 12 year run (including co-writing 2010s critically acclaimed “Forevermore” release) and also of Burning Rain and formerly of DIO, has a deep pedigree and is one of today’s most respected guitarists.

You can tell by the name – and the names involved – that REVOLUTION SAINTS isn’t your average rock ‘n roll band. The new album brings back the classic melodic rock style to where it should be: inspiring, uplifting vocals, soaring melodies and musicianship to die for. It’s completely badass.

The project is the vision of Frontiers’ President Serafino Perugino, who for years had hoped to work on a project where Deen would be the lead vocalist. Having previously worked with all three artists on different projects on Frontiers, having Deen, Jack and Doug on board together was a dream come true for Perugino.

With production overseen by in-house Frontiers man, Alessandro Del Vecchio (who also contributed to the songwriting and played keyboards on the album), the recording process took place in Portland, Oregon during the summer of 2014.

REVOLUTION SAINTS’ music is played with a heart and soul and that highlights the passion and the enthusiasm of three of the best rock and all-around musicians in the game today. Truly, this will be a release that you cannot afford to miss. Lovers of melodic rock will fall in love all over again with REVOLUTION SAINTS.
