Craving Strange - "Careful Of The Landmines" Review

Craving Strange - "Careful Of The Landmines" Review
Four years ago, in a bar somewhere out in eastern Long Island, I happened upon a tattooed singer from Indiana, whose band had just finished tearing the place up. We spoke for a few minutes, and then went our separate ways. Less than a year later, They held a record release party on Feb 28 th , 2014 at Revolution in Amityville, New York,  that we simulcasted here on Renegade Radio, for the world to hear – changing the course of our New York (And East Coast) endeavors forever. The title of that record was “A Life Exceptional” and the Singer's name is Jimmy G, of the band Craving Strange . 3...

ok, lets turn this up - renegade radio has gone "national"

ok, lets turn this up - renegade radio has gone "national"
since our inception somewhere around 2002, renegaderadio.net has been about what you don't hear on the radio. those of us who started this trip and have come and gone over the years were all about music you just can't hear anywhere else. we'd be out in the scene and hear some incredible stuff and think "any day this will be on FM". you see, FM was relevant back then. but like reel to reel tapes, 8 tracks, am, and the CD, FM really has drifted from relevance. napster in this time has come and gone and song sharing had morphed into the culture overall. we've seen a lot of amazing things at reneg...

Jack Russell’s Great White – He Saw It Comin’

Jack Russell’s Great White – He Saw It Comin’
When I heard Jack Russell’s Great White would be releasing their debut album, I was beyond excited. Finally, new music from the great Jack Russell! Yes, there is still Great White, but really Jack Russell is the voice of Great White. The music just isn’t the same if he is not the one singing it. This album is proof that he has got a great band behind him, consisting of Robby Lochner (guitar), Dan McNay (bass), Dicki Fliszar (drums), and Tony Montana (guitar, keyboards). The beginning of the first track, “Sign of the Times,” starts off with soft guitar picking melody and vocals, with the tempo ...

Twisted's Top 10 of 2016!

Twisted's Top 10 of 2016!
Hey Everybody!  Every now and again I get around to writing a thing. I most certainly should do so more often, but, reasons. So let's get on with it shall we? For some, 2016 was a Steaming pile of Horseshit. It seemed like everybody lost at least one or two idols with the Grim Reaper claiming so many celebrities. The media catastrophe that was the U.S. Presidential Election stressed everybody out. We won't even bring up Brexit. Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad left a LOT of us hardcore fans disappointed, but they still killed the box office. There were a few good things that came out o...

wrapping up 2016 - best of icepicks and a glance at 2017

wrapping up 2016 - best of icepicks and a glance at 2017
we don't have an official "Renegade Radio" award ceremony and that's one thing we're looking at for this coming year but i'll get to that later. for now i'd just like to go over my best of "best of" so to speak and just call out the ones who i keep going back to time and time through the year. until the last, these are in no specific order. the last of course will be my "best of 2016" but again - i get ahead of myself. :) first up is decembers winner, hell or highwater . my initial high has leveled off some and perhaps come back to earth a touch overall, but there are simply some bad ass songs...

An Evening with Patrick Kennison

An Evening with Patrick Kennison
Most of us go through high school without a clear path ahead but with any luck, some questions answered about what we’d like to do with our time and life. Then again, some people just know early on and have never looked back. “My first band was in middle school” started out Patrick Kennison , front man and creative force behind rock band Heaven Below . “we played half covers, half originals, won several battles and I even won some guitar competitions.” This could well have been cemented in high school by an errant guidance counselor. “By the time I got into high school, I knew what I wanted to...

Why Your Band Gets Looked Over

Why Your Band Gets Looked Over
We are into our 2nd run working with Reverb Nation  in finding new artists to play and promote. Round 1 brought out some MAJOR scored in violet janine , grimmjack , moxie and the influence , and many many more and so much has been added to our rotation. But finding these bands was tough. REAL tough. You've got a lot of crap to get through to find the good stuff and along the way you start to notice why you gloss over some and don't even listen to others and in the end, start to understand in depth as to why you will listen to a song again vs. hope to GOD you can forget that last bands nam...

Tyketto - Reach

Tyketto - Reach
Timing is everything. As cliché as that sounds, it’s true. Looking back on the 80s it’s harder to describe the rise and eventual fall of hair bands and the “copycat” syndrome. Almost any successful band had 2 things happen; the “brand” made a ton of money and the industry went into overdrive to do it again with another band. You like Night Ranger, we’re going to give you more Night Ranger, so to speak. But as a famous author once wrote – Nothing gold can stay. It was 1987 and in many ways, 80s music was at its climax and bands were being pushed out as quickly as they could be found. Howev...
