People have spoken of legends and myths of selling your soul, but when you get to that Xing and have reached the crossroads, who will you be? Stick around for Crashdiet, Skid Row and Slaughter, just to name a few!
But first… Hear N’ Tell!
Babylon Shakes unveil new single “Seven Sisters Seven Moons”
Babylon Shakes consisting of lead vocalist / guitarist Chris Clark, drummer Jeff Mortimer, guitarist Gary Jordan and bassist Dave Elmore have released a new digital single titled “Seven Sisters Seven Moons.”
Let’s hear it and see it I’ll tell you some more after…
Here’s Babylon Shakes and their new single “Seven Sisters Seven Moons” right here on Hair Metal Mixtape!
That was Babylon Shakes and their new single “Seven Sisters Seven Moons”
Clark posted the following message on his Facebook page earlier today about the new single:“It’s here! Written in the middle of the pandemic and what seemed to be a hopeless time- this song is all about the need for human interaction- the digital realm is no substitute for togetherness, conversation and warmth.
I really hope you like it. It represents a new era for us and a bit of a change in direction that we are truly happy with and have found an endless well of inspiration in. #vintagesoulrocknroll
Babylon Shakes originally formed in late September of 2017 and tore up and down the east coast with a fiery brand of vintage sleazy rock n roll steeped in blues and bombast. Singer/guitarist Chris Clark, drummer Jeff Mortimer, guitarist Gary Jordan came together in Staunton, Virginia and crafted a sound that harkened back to the 70s and 80s.
In an interview with Sleaze Roxx back in May 2019, Clark was asked to share something about each band member that people might not be aware of to which he stated: “Dave Elmore is a crane operator by day. Yes, tiny little guy in a giant machine. He also has exquisite taste in fashion, paisley shirts and leopard boots. Jeff Mortimer is an IT professional by day and can quote complete passages of movie dialogs like ‘Fletch’, ‘Anchorman’ and ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High’. He does a wicked David Lee Roth impression and is an avid fan of the old ‘Hollywood Squares’ game show. Gary Jordan is a property manager and can fix and build literally anything. We always stop at Wawa when we travel and he’s all about those pickles in a pouch. I am a visual designer by day when I’m not combing thrift shops for blouses. I also do a pretty good Johnny Carson imitation and I enjoy a good chicken parm sandwich.”
There you have it folks! What did you think?
…And that was your Hear ’N Tell!
Yo. What up Mixtapers? Headbangers! Metal Heads! Rockers! Welcome to the Mixtape.
At some point in our lives we have all come to a crossroads. A decision one must make. Sometimes it has felt like a crossing, where you have no choice but have to wait and decide when to go, or jump or leap. Sometimes it feels like you sold your soul for the betterment of yourself and your family or your job for the betterment of your family. And maybe sometimes you realize that it wasn’t your soul that you sold for the betterment of your life and family, it was the sacrifice and commitment you gave that got you where you are. So selling your soul may not be a very good deal at all to begin with.
Kicking off today’s Hair Metal Mixtape is Bon Jovi taking the Homebound Train to where I think they sold their soul for the betterment of rock n roll.
That was Slaughter with “Burnin’ Bridges” from their debut studio album Stick It to Ya
It was released in 1990 by Chrysalis Records. It sold over 2 million copies and became one of the biggest albums of 1990. “Up All Night”(#27), “Fly to the Angels”(#19) & “Spend My Life”(#39) all charted in the Top 40 on Billboard Magazine’s Hot 100 and their videos were in solid rotations on the various music television outlets. “Mad About You” also received considerable airplay on Album Rock stations as the band toured to support the release. The LP was also nominated for a best metal album of the year at the 1991 American Music Awards show. Music videos were made for the singles “Up All Night”, “Fly to the Angels”, “Spend My Life”, and “Mad About You”.
How about them apples!
And that is today’s Hair Metal Mixtape #339 – X-ing Crossroads
Today’s mixtape was one of those mixtapes that I went down a certain path and came across many crossroads and I was sure to make a lot of sudden left turns that still felt like that made sense but not taking to many left turns that end up making you go in circles. Thanks for tuning in and thanks for sticking around. I appreciate and respect your time.
That’s it folks! Thanks for listening!
I hope you are maintaining your physical distance from your friends and loved ones for now and yet also engaging in social connectivity.
Keep your vinyl clean!
Be Kind, Rewind
Peace, Love, Hair Metal!
