Blackfield - V (I'm still getting under the skin of this one. However first impressions are good, but unsurprisingly V is no quick fix, so I'll have to get back to you as to how it stacks up against the band's earlier material)

Chris Catalyst - Life Is Often Brilliant (Eureka Machines mainman delivers his first solo album and you know, it's often brilliant!)

Role Models - Forest Lawn (These guys opened for Scott Sorry on his recent UK tour and their sheer infectiousness convinced me to buy their latest CD. The fact I've pledged for the next should tell you how good the rock/punk hybrid is)

Status Quo - Aquostic II That's A Fact (Unbelievable to think that Rick Parfitt is no longer with us. Quo were the first band I got into, so it's fitting that the affable guitarist's final album with the band should be one of their best. Yes it's reworked songs in acoustic style, but some have never sounded better)

Ryan Hamilton & The Traitors - The Devil's In The Detail (My favourite find of 2017 so far. Imagine Ginger Wildheart playing Pop music and that's RH&TT. A recent acoustic show in Glasgow was a blast and the full band album is even better!)

Ryan Hamilton - Hell Of A Day (And the solo album that preceded it is almost as good. A little more country in places, the ex- Smile Smile and People On Vacation man adds more substance and comes up trumps)

Ginger Wildheart - Ghost In The Tanglewood (And the Ginger one himself has gone country. Well, UK country, and still in a Ginger style. Damn it's good and it's still a live Pledge campaign so get Pledging!)

Quiet Riot - 10 (In preparation for a new QR album, I've gone back to their previous, digital only release (now withdrawn) where Jizzy Pearl sang on six studio tracks and the much missed Kevin Dubrow handles four live ones. It's surprisingly good, with a strong Zeppelin feel in the studio cuts, while the live stuff is great to hear even if the quality isn't top notch)

House Of Lords - Saint Of The Lost Souls (HoL albums come at regular intervals these days and you pretty much know that top notch pomp rock is in order. Heavier on the keys and a little more diverse, SOTLS is a cracker)

And just to keep the music fresh, I've been dipping into a few Doctor Who stories on CD from the guys at Big Finish. Featuring Doctors such as Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann, these fully authorised releases make you feel like the regenerations never happened…
