PAUL CHAIN- Mirror 7″ (Flight Nineteen Records, Switzerland, 1990)

This is the third post involving Italy’s very own PAUL CHAIN and it won’t be the last! You’ll find his former band DEATH SS here and his first solo release here.

Couldn’t possibly add more to what I’ve already said about this man’s crazy, crazy and extensive work. Spanning from really heavy stuff over a 3-disc opera to improvisational music, the two 7″ released on the tiny Swiss “Flight Nineteen” label represent some of the best PAUL CHAIN ever achieved. Totally out in space, psychadelic yet heavy and with that typical morbid italian twist and sung once again in his purely phonetic language! What could be more perfect for a sunny sunday morning, with falling leaves, families walking the streets like zombies and religious live broadcast on every second television channel.

I bet my soul (a if I had one): This cannot be topped!

  9. Still one of my favorite Paul Chain records – there is a cd release, also called Mirror, that inludes this, as well as other 7″ tracks. Out of print, I think.

  18. AC/DC live the last time they played Globen in Sweden and will be so this time as well. They have never dissapointed me so far and I doubt they will this time.

    AA has to big beards to be good, only Canned Heat and The Band can have beard and be good, well maybe ZZ Top as well.

    I am hoping to score some Styx tickets when they decide to tour again…maybe Def Leppard are going to open for them. I hope Loverboy is on the bill as well. That would be heavy metal bliss!!! How could anyone actually want to see AC/DC??? They were fucking horrible after Bon died….

  20. “How could anyone actually want to see AC/DC??? They were fucking horrible after Bon died….”

    Everything and then I say EVERYTHING AC/DC has ever released is 10/10. The only band to have done that.

  22. Every AC/DC record, Pär, really every single one? I have to strongly disagree. ALL Bon albums are 12/10, Back in Black is great too and For those has its fine moments. But after these it got worse and worse. Flick of the Switch has a few decent songs and a great production, but from there on it’s a really sad story. Same story when it comes to live concerts: Unfortunately, I’ve never seen them with Bon, but the Back in Black tour made a huge impression on me and the same goes for the For those tour. Then I saw them again in 1984 at Monsters of Rocks and it was dull. Last time I saw them was maybe 6, 7 years ago. I felt embarrassed about the band, really. Nothing more tasteless than nursing homes on stage.

  23. Yes every record is 10/10 at least. For a few years I thought that I didn´t like Fly on the wall but I listen to it a couple of years ago and found out that I was wrong. And when I see then live I just feel happy, about the same feeling that I get when I see Motörhead. Just pure happiness.

    Ugh. I disagree completely. AC/DC were really great until Bon died, then it just seemed to lose something. As for Def Leppard…they are most likely the worst band ever. Lyrically stupid as fuck and musically lame. My opinion. Don’t take offense. Motorhead are always great live!!!

    If you want good bands, Dream Theater is like one of my all time favorites! They’re songs are just so advanced, it blows my mind. And yes, AC/DC was better with Bon.
