On Episode #86 of The Crazy Train, Steve ‘The Buzz Man’ and I welcomed on Miramichi Rock up and comers ‘Lionsault’, who were playing a show Saturday night with ‘Chaos Theory’ and ‘Kilmore’, both bands from Halifax. Lionsault’s album came out in 2015 and was a chart topper here at CHSR for many months!! It’s a killer album, make sure you check them out!
Also in the first hour we were joined by Tyson Davidson and Denny from Tyson’s new hard hitting outfit ‘I Monolith’. While the band has not played any shows yet, they will be performing their first show on Saturday May 22nd at the Charlotte St. Arts Center with ‘Mellevon’, ‘Engage The Threat’ and ‘Forest Soul’ and also appearing at the East Coast Awakening festival this July! Currently they do not have any tracks available, but I’ve heard some excerpts and believe you me, they will be a force to be reckoned with!
In Hour II, we paid special tribute to the Misfits/Danzig. If you haven’t heard the news, Jerry Only (current “owner/operator) of the Misfits and Glen Danzig have finally buried the hatchet (not even physically!!) and are playing some select dates this Summer as ‘The Misfits’. Now this is something that many fans and non fans alike have agreed we would never ever see happen. Given that for years if a journalist asked Glen Danzig about anything Misfits related, they were usually threatened with violence! So, yes, Misfits/Danzig tribute which also featured Jerry Only’s ‘New’ Misfits which did amazingly well with Michael Graves, until as with most Post-Misfits members he quit. From then on in my own opinion anything Only released under the Misfits’ brand was crap… Although they’ve always had great merch!
