If You Would Like to Hear This Record

Because of various problems with public blogs and rights problems, I have decided to take my blog and convert it to a private email. If you’d like to listen to this album (and more) or any other album I am posting here, just send me your email address at and I will put you on my list. Along with this album, I have a gigantic archive of my vinyl digitizations that gets added to every week. I do them myself and de-click them. Most sound pretty darned good, if I do say so myself.
This is not some come on. Just caution on my part. It costs nothing and there’s nothing to join. Just an email address. I have about a hundred people on my list at the moment. Come and join the musical fun.

Swedish Sleaze on the Sunset Strip

By Dong

12th Nov 2011 – Raw, hard and loud rock n roll came back to the Sunset Strip as Swedish hair-metal sleaze-rockers Crashdiet took to the Key Club as part of six shows on their first tour in the United States. Touring in four different states, the band described the North American leg of the Generation Wild Tour as something they have always wanted to do.
Coming on stage at around 12 45am, the band had a plan of unleashing mayhem upon the Key Club but had their one hour set cut short by the promoters to only 40 minutes due to scheduling problems. Despite the 20 minute cut, the band still managed to rock the audience with hits not just from the latest album Generation Wild, but also songs like Riot in Everyone and Straight Out of Hell from their debut album Rest In Sleaze.
It was clear that fans could not get enough of the glam punk quartet as they chanted for more when the band first left the stage, bringing them back on stage to close with Generation Wild. I had earlier been told by lead-singer Simon Cruz that the band had planned to end their set with In The Raw, a song off their second album The Unattractive Revolution, but I guess the shortening of their set left them with little choice but to play the title track of the tour. Some fans and what looked to me to be groupie-type girls even stayed up till 2 30am outside the Key Club to catch a glimpse Crashdiet.
For fans in Fresno, Vegas, Arizona and New Mexico, I urge you to make every effort to catch Crashdiet at their show in your state because this is a band that truly epitomizes the essence of rock n roll. Combining the rebellious nature of punk rock with the heavy sounds of glam rock, making cacophony sound melodious, Crashdiet brings along with them a sensation of danger driven organized mayhem the moment the first chord rings through the PA system. (tour dates can be found on


I got to meet and speak with the members of the band before their set at the Key Club about how they felt about playing in the United States so far, head-lining a show on the legendary Sunset Strip and also learnt that Swedish hairspray might hold stronger than Aqua Net.
Check out the video for all that and live performance clips from the Crashdiet show on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood!
