Back Street Crawler. The band plays on!

The story about Back Street Crawler is of course mainly a story about one of the most influential guitar players of all times, Paul Kossoff (1950-1976). First a member of the ground breaking and legendary band FREE, Kossoff moved on to form Back Street Crawler with singer Terry Slesser. The name of the band was taken from the title of a previous solo album by Kossoff. The story of the band is unfortunately rather short, because after two studio albums, Kossoff died in 1976. He was only 25 years old. Some of the band members continued to play together under the name Crawler, who also released two studio albums, but in 1978 the band broke up for good. Until now! We move forward to 2022 when original Back Street Crawler vocalist Terry Slesser, together with guitar player extraordinaire, John Buckton, decided to breath life into Back Street Crawler again and record a brand new album. A band, besides Slesser and Buckton, consisting of highly acclaimed musicians Rhino Edwards (Status Quo, ex Dexys Midnight Runners) (Bass), Clive Edwards (ex UFO, ex Pat Travers, ex Wild Horses etc) (Drums) and Mark Taylor (ex Simple Minds, ex The Alarm, Ex Elton John etc) (Keys) went into the studio, and the result is nothing but amazing. The album, called "Rome in a Day", will be released in 2023, but before that, the single and a video of the song "Rome In a Day" will see the light of day early 2023. "We have played together for a long time, honouring the memory of Paul, under the name "Paul Kossoff...the band plays on". But we have talked about making new music together, and now we are finally here and I am thrilled", says Terry Slesser. "An extra bonus is that some of the songs on the album is co-written by John "Rabbit" Bundrick, also a member of the band back in the seventies and he will also guest on the album. This album is for sure a tribute to the man, but also a new fresh start for us. We might be older, but we still have that burning desire to create new music and I am sure you will hear that while listening to the album", Slesser says with a big smile.

Unique art exhibition at this years festival Antecedent Death Aesthetics Of Mortality - A Death Mask Project By Tom Gabriel Warrior The fury captured in the music by Swiss groups Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, and Triptykon ranks among the most pivotal influences on the extreme, black, gothic, doom and avant- garde metal genres. The common thread linking these bands is founding member and main songwriter, Tom Gabriel Warrior (née Tom Gabriel Fischer, voice/guitars). Concurrently primitive yet curiously intricate, Warrior's compositions evoke stark and compelling vistas reminiscent of writings of H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Aleister Crowley, and Charles Baudelaire. Lyrically, Warrior delves into all areas associated with civilizations crumbling...
