quireboys paulThis week we celebrate Brit Rock – that sleazy, bluesy, hair metal-inspired movement which peaked around the late 80s and early 90s when a slew of great British bands back big record deals and crashed the charts with refreshing regularity.

There’s an exclusive chat with Quireboy Paul Guerin (pictured) plus a full review of the reissued A Bit Of What You Fancy and the chance for five lucky rushonrock readers to win a copy – featuring sleeve notes by our very own editor Simon Rushworth!

Then there’s another interview exclusive as former Little Angel Toby Jepson drops in for a chat. Ready to kick off a full UK tour in his role as frontman with the reformed Gun he’s in typically ebullient mood. Terrorvision hit The Vinyl Countdown and there’ll be an honourbale mention for Thunder somewhere along the line. But that’s not all folks… 

We’ve finally heard the Slayer record in all of it’s 180 gram vinyl glory and it rocks. Read a full review here soon. There’s a look behind the scenes with Alan White as the Yes drummer becomes the latest victim to fall foul of the rushonrock Rider.

And of course we bring you the best in rock views and news as bloggers Self Made Man and Rock O’ The North fight it out for column inches with the biggest breaking stories of the week. And as well as the Gun boys dropping in at Newcastle’s o2 Academy on Thursday we’ve got Fables Last Stand playing The Venue (Krash) on Saturday and The Enemy at the Academy on Sunday. Can’t stop the rock? Then don’t.
