Listening to this Stray Cats album is like being transported back to the year 1955. Or, rather, to 1981, which was the year the trio came waltzing in and took over the rockabilly music scene even though it had already been around for 25 years. Now, in 2019, Stray Cats have made a comeback with the release of their first studio album in a quarter of a century, 40, to commemorate their 40th anniversary. The band’s longevity (aside from a few break-ups and makeups) is almost as impressive as the devotion of their loyal fans. In the early ‘80s, Stray Cats was the saviour of an audience of rebels and old-fashioned rock fans who just couldn’t bring themselves to embrace the emerging music trends full of synthesizers. Now forty years later, pop music has moved on and rock music has all but been killed off, but Stray Cats are still playing the same upbeat, rootsy music. And it works – sounding just like it did in 1980 and 1955. Firstly, because apart from a few exceptions, the band plays its own songs rather than just picking and choosing from the jukebox of original rock ‘n’ roll. Secondly, it works because Brian Setzer is an exceptional, natural-born guitarist with virtuoso talent and his Gretsch is on fire on this album. And finally, because the trio always seem to get stuck in and thoroughly enjoy themselves. Each of the 23 songs on this album is like a sprint against slackness and although they aren’t nostalgic, they certainly get your heart beating faster than usual. Yes, it may not be wise to do that many sprints one after another when you’re in your sixties. But that’s rock ‘n’ roll folks. © Stéphane Deschamps/Qobuz

Led Zeppelin: 50 Years of Rock

In 2018, Led Zeppelin celebrated their 50th birthday, but the only "present" on offer is a beautiful book which will come out on sale in Autumn. After having made their mark on the history of rock in just 12 years, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones have often reunited on stage and in the studio after the death of drummer John Bonham in 1980, with varying degrees of success. Let's take a look back at Led Zep's different comebacks, which we hope might throw up some nice ideas for a really good birthday concert...

Diabolus in Musica: 50 Years of Black Sabbath

In the autumn of 1969, four young lads from Birmingham crammed themselves into a studio in London for what looked like their last chance at making a career in music. They had 24 hours to record and to change their lives forever. They left the studio with “Black Sabbath” an eponymous debut album from the band led by Ozzy Osbourne and guitarist Tommy Iommi that would turn a whole generation onto heavy metal. Let's look back on this sonic revolution.
