Hop on in and make sure you turn the stereo up nice and loud for Kendra!

We are back with another healthy dose of great rock and roll for those of you hungry for more after our record 25 song podcast last week. This week is part 2 of our look back at 2009 as we prime ourselves for another year of amazing rock and roll here at the Rock and Roll Report Podcast. Next week I settle down and revert to my usual 10 song, 45 minute length but for this week, here is another extended shot of rock and roll fun.
As usual you have a wide range of styles from a wider range of bands and artists who are either unsigned or are signed to independent record labels. If you like what you hear please consider supporting these bands in a tangible way by buying their music, going to their shows and buying their merch.

CD Review: Surefire Machine – S/T

surefire-machine-album-cover-webThis is one record that has yet to cease surprising me. No matter how many times I listen to Surefire Machine’s self-titled debut it never gets boring nor any less stellar.

This is more than just a CD – it is a musical composition of the highest caliber. It is an exciting, coherent story with a gripping beginning, exhilarating middle and rocking end.

The Toronto-based boys (or ‘Revivers of Rock’, as they may soon be known) deliver eight tracks packed with hard-hitting energy, in-your-face lyrics like “One thing you don’t realize, I’m always walking tall” [Walking Tall], bitchin’ guitar riffs and a solid rhythm section – what more could you ask for? But there’s more! Singer Rail Road Wilson’s raw, raspy voice emanates passion and from the very first track, the very first chorus, when he begs “Baby Please, You’ve Got Me on My Knees” – I’m hooked.

Want to know more? Pick up the CD and find out what you’ve been missing.

Surefire Machine will bring you back to the good ol’ days when rock was hard, dirty and unapologetic – the way it’s meant to be.
