for those of you who like lots of heavy hammond organ, wah-wah and big drums, may I introduce you to the RockLibrary...?

Stuck this on yesterday; bit heavier than what I'd usually listen to, but not bad at all. There's a definite Led Zep vibe going on there, not necessarily a bad thing!

Love it.
Have always liked the guitar / hammond Jon Lord type of sound and I used to like the odd night at "Heavy Load" in London - where a lot of this would be right at home.

Ps Col Wolfe - I think I was speaking to a friend of yours a (good) while back - the owner of "Second Scene" records, near Watford (Julian?).

A man walks into a library, goes up to the desk and says in a loud voice "Two pints of lager and a packet of crisps please?" The librarian looks shocked and replies in a hushed and annoyed voice "Do you mind? This is a library!" "Sorry" he replies in a whisper, "Two pints of lager and a packet of crisps please?"

They are quite good in a late sixties Led Zep/ Beatles way. I'm not sure that the band name is a good one for rockers though. Libraries aren't really known for their wild parties and groupies unless I've been going to the wrong ones all these years.
Life is too short to listen to s**t music

the 'library' bit relates to the fact all tracks are taken from library records (not available to the general public but hawked around TV/radio/film companies to use as background music).  libraries are best known for their funkier tracks but I drew this mix up to prove to somebody on a different forum that there are plenty of late 60s/early 70s rock tracks to explore too.

Love it.

Yes, I know Julian well!  Top chap and pleased to see his shop is growing from strength to strength.  Did you know he plays drums in a bloody excellent band too?  http://www.craniumpie.co.uk/

If you like this sort of sound you may be interested in our new release:  http://youtu.be/VPdkd0v7C3M

Ah, I've seen the name "Cranium Pie" about - but hadn't known the connection.
Thanks for the Smoke / Spoke link - will give it a proper look.
