The Rock Train, From Ghost to Vincent Price
Written by The Rock Train on 25th June 2013
This Thursday’s show (27th June 8pm to 10pm, repeating Saturday 7pm to 9pm)
takes the listener on a journey from one of the most enigmatic new bands in rock music today, namely Swedish band Ghost, all the way to one of the greatest names in rock, Deep Purple, whose new track ‘Vincent Price’, closes our show.
The Rock Train recently spent a weekend braving the elements at Download Festival where we had an audience with one of the members of Ghost (a Nameless Ghoul) prior to their stage appearance. The interview will appear in a festival special show over the summer. As a taster we open the show with Ghost’s Year Zero which demonstrates the sheer amazingness of this band.
It’s not only Sweden that produces eccentric bands. Closer to home we debut a track from Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats who have been playing some major festivals this summer.
Interviews this week come from 2 Norwegian bands both hailing from the tiny town of Bergen. This area of Scandinavia has produced some remarkable bands over the past few years. What is their secret? First we talk to Audrey Horne’s front man Toschie who is a fantastic artist. Go and see Audrey Horne when they next pass this way, you won’t be disappointed.
We then talk to Sahg, who will be back in the UK at the end of the year when their 4th album launches.
As always our show is full of new releases from bands large and small. There’s a healthy sprinkling of heavy rock, some dramatic operatic metal and some good old heavy stuff. It’s all good and it’s all aboard The Rock Train.
