Liliac – Chain of Thorns EP Review

Late in 2018 I came across a band whose potential reinvigorated my enthusiasm for the future of music. This of course would be Liliac. I play them weekly in some fashion on the icehouse and I pimp them when I can on Facebook and other social media. I picked up their first release of cover tunes and their management sent me a copy of Chain of Thorns for the rotation. Over the years I’ve written many stories over the exaggeration,...

Anticipated Releases Coming in 2019

2018 is over. Done. Stick a fork in it and let’s see what we’ve got coming for 2019. For my last article of 2018 I’m going to cover some of the more anticipated released scheduled for 2019. Let's see what we have in store for this year. Liliac. I found this band while surfing youtube and they just made me stop and take notice. Melody, on vocals, just turned 17 and has vocal ability beyond her years. She’s got an...

KNON Reckless Rock Radio Local Show – CD Release Party

Local radio station KNON has been hosting a 2 hour weekly show focusing on the local Dallas music scene for years now. Every Sunday from 10-midnight "Big Mix" Lee Russell and long time local radio personality Spicoli have been there week in and week out playing today's local hits and diving WAY back into so many yesterdays. If I start naming all these bands it would pretty much be the entire article. The local scene in Dallas, TX is simply...

Evergrey – In Search of Truth; Remastered

It’s not often I’m going to go back to 2001 and review an album. Hell, that’s 17 years. But Evergrey’s In Search of Truth has set the tone for the band and in many ways, still the “go to” release for Evergrey. The very first song set the tone with a spoken intro you seldom hear and hear even less done well. Rest assured this set the tone for Evergrey and the creativity they would produce in the many years...

Disturbed – Evolution

Legendary rock/metal powerhouse Disturbed has pushed out yet another release with Evolution now available. Tours are already planned and they will be selling out the biggest arenas available such as American Airlines Center in Dallas. (wonder if I can get a photo pass!). It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was moshing to them in Grand Prairie, TX; but it most certainly was and I’m pretty sure I won’t be doing that again.  Near as I can figure it...

Liliac – October Icepick

I don’t do this every day. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I’ve done it. Finding a band I instantly fall in love with that is. There I was bouncing around youtube killing time. I find this band from California by the name of Liliac doing Crazy Train and they simply nailed it. I needed more so I did want I don’t normally do and I dove all in. I checked out all I could find on the...

Steve Perry – Traces

There simply isn't another voice or singer more widely known that Steve Perry, frontman for the iconic band Journey. His gritty melodic vocals helped define what was ushered in as 80s rock, still played today. Will his new release "Traces" live up to the past or set a new tone for the future? Before we go there, let's back up. Starting off as a "jazz-fusion" band in 1973; Perry was not an original member of the band. He did not...

Nothing More Than Great Rock

Four score and at least six albums ago (that’s studio recorded albums¹), the Nothing More clan had a dream!  A gleaming vision of a local headlining show with crowd surfing, sing-alongs, and a huge fuck-off drum set on stage!  At this show, blessed be the music snobs, the lip singers, the head bobbers and the booty shakers who proudly braved the sticky dive bars and tagged photos of themselves holding pots and pans² in the front row!  For thine is...

Welcome to Renegade Radio

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 renegade and even helped drive a few. but there has always been one constant in that regardless of the medium, the best of the best found it’s way to the top.

it’s defining “best of the best” that gets confusing.

Ridglea Room, Ft Worth KNON CD Release

Recently the Joey C Jones band kicked off the KNON CD release party (read review here on Renegade Radio of the CD itself!) and I was fortunate enough to be out there for sound check and of course, the show. Joey C Jones is in the studio as noted in my latest review of 2019 anticipated releases and the music he is putting together today is some of his best either yet, or at least in a very long long long time. Can’t wait to hear what is next, Joey!
