Last I saw, their guitarist was part of Michael Monroe's band so I hope that doesn't spell the end of them.

No. I donīt think so. Dregen has been Mikeīs guitarist now seven years. And Backyard Babies are touring Europe next summer, so that camp is active.

That is a great tune!!!

Iīve seen them live two times and let me tell you this band knows how to put up a great show!!


You had to know these guys were right in my "wheelhouse".  Glam/sleaze/punk are my favorite genres and Backyard Babies has elements of all three.

Yeah. I knew it. My relationship with music goes in periods. At some time dark/gothic, then other time poppy/light, then classic heavy metal/hard rock/glam... sometimes fast and aggressive.

I have bands I never get tired of and BB is one them. There are also others in different genreīs.

What "dark/gothic" bands do you like?  69 Eyes is one of them I bet.

That would seem very obvious, but no. 69 Eyes donīt do much for me. I like some songs from them, but donīt care of the whole package.

But I looooove: Sisters of Mercy, Type O Negative, Paradise Lost...

And of course The Cure and Nick Cave And the Bad Seeds

I love Sisters too.  I wish they'd put out some new music.

Have you ever heard Rosetta Stone?

It thought of another one:

To/Die/For

 If you're not familiar with them, they're a poppier goth rock/metal band:



But since they're from Finland I assume you already know them.

I like Haggard in small doses due to the vocals obviously.

They've certainly got some interesting music.

I know them and actually have heard them live once. They have their good moments and that song you posted is great version of the original. They quit two years ago if I remember correctly.

Yeah I think they broke up.  Too bad.  I always liked their combination of goth, metal and pop.

I broke down and bought the Steven Wilson remix/deluxe edition of Heavy Horses.  It's called "Heavy Horses - New Shoes Edition" and it came in the mail today.

You have to see these reissues to appreciate them.  It comes in a book sized package and besides the remixed/remastered version you also get a 2 disc live performance from the same time period and a DVD in 5.1 stereo (which sadly I can't really appreciate because I don't have high-end DVD equipment).  There's also a 96 page glossy book bound into the package that includes extensive interviews with Jethro Tull band members and lots of cool pictures of the band at the time and the album photo shoots.

These releases have been done for Minstrel In The Gallery (which I have), Thick As A Brick and War Child.  There was also a Steven Wilson remix done for Aqualung (which I also have) but so far I think only those other album have gotten this "whole hog" treatment. 

I haven't listened to the CDs yet but I already know they're going to sound like brand new Tull albums because the Minstrel and Aqualung albums did.  These releases also include multiple unreleased tracks recorded during the same recording sessions which is another reason I decided to buy the Heavy Horses one.  There are several songs here I've never heard before and since this is my favorite era of Jethro Tull I finally caved in and bought it.
