Safely delivered to rushonrock‘s Rock Solid reviews desk this week comes the latest, and possibly greatest, release from those prolific boys at Thunder.

We’re already feebly attempting to contain the excitement ahead of next month’s Newcastle City Hall show – a must-see annual event which never fails to hit the mark as far as seasoned gig goers are concerned.

But then this 12-track collection of pure blues rock beauties arrives in the shape of the snappily titled Bang! and suddenly we’re harking back to the Backstreet Symphony glory days (guess what’s gonna feature in Now…And Then very soon) and remembering Danny with long hair.

Not released until November 3 we won’t spoil the surprise just yet and a full review will appear here next month. As will an overview of Thunder’s latest EP The Joy Of Six – we told you those boys were prolific.
