Message from Danko: New List

Here’s another list for you to chew on. Most people hang out with their
friends at the bar, order beers, watch the TV show “Lost” and discuss the
Gaza and U.S. election. I avoid people, download porn and listen to these

NASHVILLE PUSSY – From Hell To Texas
You can never go wrong with Nashville Pussy. Timeless music like this will
always get the night rolling. This works best cranked on the stereo driving
down the highway with your arm leaning out the window. I also do a cameo
appearance on Track #5 – “I’m So High” and going t√ɬ™te-√É -t√ɬ™te with
Cartwright was most certainly a Rock ‘n’ Roll Thrill and a half.

KHANATE – Clean Hands Go Foul
Yeah, this is about as extreme as it gets but it’s fucking great! Turn the
lights out and listen to this and you’re bound to get nightmares. Listening
to this on headphones while out in public turns your world into a horror
movie. Listen with caution.

MOTORHEAD – Rock ‘N’ Roll
Call it post-tour blues but I just can’t stop listening to Motorhead since
I got back home. This one’s a favorite of mine since it’s got two of my
favorite Motorhead tracks – “Eat The Rich” and “Cradle To The Grave”.

I just wrote a review for this album for Rockstar Magazine (CH) so I’ve
been listening to this record this past week more than I have in the last
ten years. It was a super group made up of Kat Bjelland of Babes in
Toyland, Russell Simins of the Blues Explosion, and Stuart Gray of
Lubricated Goat. If you like your Stooges sleazy as fuck than this is the
record for you.

EL GUAPO STUNTTEAM – Accusation Blues
Did everyone sleep on this when it came out last year? Too bad ’cause you
lost out on hearing one of the best up and coming bands in rock. Getting
better and better with every album, this one is their best. I love Soulwax
and the Evil Superstars but when I think of Belgium now I think of El Guapo

MASTODON – Divinations Single
Yeah, it’s new Mastodon but don’t get all fired up, it’s only the single.
Just more fucking incredible molten metal from a band that in my eyes can
do no wrong. I have yet to hear a bad track from this band and await the
new record with drool.

Danko appears on the new Nashville Pussy Album

Nashville Pussy release their new album, "From Hell To Texas" the second week of February. Danko appears on track #5, "I'm So High". "It's an honour to be on a Nashville Pussy album and a thrill to sing alongside Blaine Cartwright" says Danko.

Message from Danko: Top 7, Jan 20

I used to do lists of current listens a few years back and some how they
got swept aside by podcasts, radio shows and just plain old touring.

Here’s a list of my past week’s listening highlights. Who gives a shit
right? I dig reading other people’s list. Hope you dig mine.

HELLA – There’s No 666 In Outer Space
Ok, there are some Hella fans who have raised the critical eyebrow to the
growing singing on each subsequent release, including this one, which may
be their last one. The status of the band is in question right now. Who
knows. Whatever the case, if you like Lightning Bolt, The Psychic Paramount
or Brainiac then enjoy.

THE TEMPTATIONS – Psychedelic Soul
This is a double CD that documents the second phase of the Temptations -
(1969-1973) when they took their soul music in a more psychedelic path
affected by Sly Stone and Jimi Hendrix. Thank you Ruyter and Blaine for my

KREATOR – Hordes Of Chaos
Holy Shit! Most metal bands 20+ years into their career inevitably start
the monotonous grind to a halt but not Kreator. If 2005′s Enemy Of God was
a remarkable return for Mille Petrozza and company then this year’s Hordes
Of Chaos defiantly prove it was no exception.

During the 90′s, bands like The Jesus Lizard, Shellac and No Means No
decided to have a baby and now their baby has put out an album. Volt is the
name of the mutant toddler and it will clobber your senses like Bamm-Bamm

I had to interview Away recently for Rock Hard so I naturally listened to a
lot of Voivod to gear up for our talk. I hadn’t heard this album in a while
and it’s gotta be my favorite album by them.

D.I.T.C. – D.I.T.C.
Yeah, what can I say, I’m not exactly a hip hop head, but I am a purist for
the years 1986-1998; basically starting from “Raising Hell” by Run DMC to
the dissolution of Tribe Called quest in 1998 with “The Love Movement”. So
it is funny that this 2000 album by the collective D.I.T.C. is making my
playlist. No surprise since it’s players like Fat Joe, Showbiz and A.G.,
Diamond D, and Lord Finesse are all from that era.

Damn, this is heavy. In fact, this band’s last outing, “AssasiNation” from
2006 was heavy as fuck and technical too. What is it about Brazil? It
produces the hottest women and the thickest, most brutal metal in the whole
