The best description for Slough Feg that I’ve heard is that they are “the best band you’ve never heard of.”  I admit that I was late to the party with them, but once I got there it didn’t take long for me to start partying hard.  When I found out that they were going across the country on a U.S. tour, I knew there was no way that I could pass up the opportunity to check them out live.

KINGDOM COME – Lenny Wolf and Eric Foerster

December 4th, 2007
by Marko Syrjala

LENNY WOLF AND ERIC FOERSTER

Kingdom Come was originally formed in North America by German born vocalist Lenny Wolf following his critically acclaimed but commercially untenable band Stone Fury. The original line-up consisted of Wolf, guitarists Danny Stagg and Rick Steier, bassist Johnny B. Frank and current Scorpions drummer James Kottak. The band was soon signed to Polydor Records and they released their eponymous debut album, produced by Bob Rock, in 1988. With the impact of the huge radio hits ‘Get It On’ and ‘What Love Can Be’  the album went gold. Later on the same year the band finished the U.S Monsters of Rock which also included such names as Metallica, Scorpions and headliners Van Halen. At that point everything looked very promising for the bands future. The next year the band returned to the studio, now with Keith Olsen, and as a result band released their sophomore album IN YOUR FACE. Although the album still did pretty well it failed to reach its predecessor’s success and the whole band split up in late 1989. Lenny decided to continue under the name Kingdom Come and the band’s third album HANDS OF TIME was released in late 1990. Despite the undoubted strength of the album, the interest level in the band had declined sharply and HANDS OF TIME  failed to chart.  Kingdom Come’s career at Polydor Records came to an end. Lenny made another attempt to return, now with all German line up and a new record deal with WEA. In  1993 with the heavier album BAD IMAGE was released but didn’t got too much interest outside of Germany. 1995 saw the release of the experimental TWILIGHT CRUISER album and MASTER SEVEN was released the following year. Although the band hasn’t been much in headlines outside of Germany after the mid 90′s they still have been around. The band has since then released four studio albums, the latest one AIN’T CRYING FOR THE MOON came out in 2006, and they have done some touring. Recently the band joined forces with U.S band Dokken and together they did a co-headline European tour titled “Defenders of Rock”. I managed to catch Lenny and current guitarist Eric Foerster just before their show in Copenhagen and here’s the latest update from the world of Kingdom Come.

TWISTED SISTER- Jay Jay French and Mark (the Animal) Mendoza

November 15th, 2007
by Marko Syrjala

Legendary glam/hard rock band Twisted Sister was originally formed in 1972 by guitarist Jay Jay French. In the beginning the band went through numerous line up changes. Eddie Ojeda joined their ranks in 1975 and one year later the band found its true leader Dee Snider who soon became the band’s dominant songwriter. Former Dictators bassist Mark (the Animal) Mendoza joined in 1978 and the band changed their style from glam rock to a more metallic hard rock. The band released their first single ‘I�ll Never Grow Up Now!’ via their own label TRS in 1981 but it wasn�t until 1982 that they finally got their first deal from independent record company, Secret Records. At this point drummer A.J Pero completed the classic line-up. Later in the same year the band finally, after ten years, released their first studio album UNDER THE BLADE. The album became a surprise underground success and the band was soon signed by major company Atlantic Records. YOU CAN’T STOP ROCK N ROLL came out in 1983. With that album the the band got its first chart-flirting single but it wasn�t until 1984 and STAY HUNGRY that the band hit the BIG time! With the help of such monster hits as "We’re Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock" the album soon exceeded multi-platinum sales. Twisted Sister was at the top of their game. Unfortunately, the good times didn�t last too long. The bands 1985 release COME OUT AND PLAY quickly slid off the charts and the band started to lose their media interest. A.J Pero left after the tour and he was replaced by veteran drummer Joe Franco. The band did its final attempt to return with another album LOVE IS FOR SUCKERS in 1987 but after very disappointing sales Twisted Sister wound up disintegrating shortly thereafter.

The classic line-up of Twisted Sister: Dee Snider, Jay Jay French, Eddie Ojeda, Mark (the Animal) Mendoza and A.J Pero reformed in 2003 after a sixteen year non existence. Since then the band has since toured sporadically across the globe and though the band has not released any new original songs they have released a bunch of material including the heavy metal Christmas album TWISTED CHRISTMAS which came out in 2006. I had a chance to talk briefly with Jay Jay and Mark before the band’s show in Helsinki on the 12th of November and here are the results of that conversation.
