Another short one from the Power 30 with Teresa Roncon. At Phase One studios, a quick visit with Russ Dwarf (Killer Dwarfs), Dee Cernille (Sven Gali) and Gord Prior (Blu Bones). At the time Sven were in the middle of touring with Def Leppard, and the Dwarfs were “takin’ ‘er easy for the summer”, but the new album mentioned by Russ never came to be.
You can see what I have been saying all this time, about the Power 30 having shorter content than the superior Power Hour. Sure, there were technically more minutes of metal per week, but not the kind of extended content that I’ve brought you recently, such as The Axemen Cometh and Waltzing With Helix.
Thanks for watching last night’s stream if you did, and no worries if you didn’t. I did some unboxings but due to the limitations of resolution, couldn’t show off my new arrivals very clearly. Here are some photos for you to enjoy!
First off: if you remember, back in July somebody stole my copy of Michael D. LeFevre‘s book Rock and Roll Children right out of the mail. Michael (better known to you as 80s Metal Man) sent me a new copy right out of his own pocket. He didn’t have to do that. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I’m happy to finally have a copy.
Next: Sven Gali! I won a Facebook contest and the band sent me some swag! The guitar pick neck chain (with the late Dee Cernile’s name on the back) is my favourite. They also sent a glossy photo (top) signed by all five members: Andy Frank, Shawn Minden, Dave Wanless, Dan Fila and Sean Williamson. Finally we have a new copy of their excellent new EP 3. I played it again this week and I like it more now than I did then. I have given my extra copy to loyal reader and friend Len Labelle.
Finally: From a shitty Amazon seller comes Super 7’s ReAction figure for a battle-damaged T-1000 from Terminator 2: Judgement Day. What’s up with the shitty seller? They stuffed this figure in a box that was too small for the card, damaging it and making the figure fall out loose. I was going to open him, but then I noticed he was a limited edition exclusive. Would have been nice to have the option to keep him sealed if I felt like it. Well, he’s open now, and ready to do battle with Autobots, Decepticons, Aliens, and ghouls. This is a universal action figure line compatible with the 1977 Kenner Star Wars figures. Ever wanted Ben Kenobi to take on Snake Pliskin? You could do it now!
