Friday Playlist: Rawk!


Sophistication is not our goal this time out. It's been a long week and the grind of it all has our heads fuzzy. And there's few finer ways to blow out the cobwebs than with amp rattlin', chakra loosenin' rock-and-freakin-roll. Our jump off artist this week is The Upper Crust, who play AC/DC stomp while wearing Louis XIV style finery, wigs and all. From there, we wend through a boss anthem from Super 400 (and peep JamBase's rave for their new album here), followed by a stone groover from Thin Lizzy and Rose Hill Drive's contribution to car themed hard rock. The short-lived Imperial Drag (Roger Joseph Manning's post-Jellyfish band) wrestle with gender confusion before Cheap Trick give us the big kiss off and Helloween have their way with Jethro Tull's railway scorcher. Goodbye cobwebs!

May your weekend both rock AND roll, dear JamBase readers!
