Mick Cocks Rose Tattoo‘s guitarist answered to my questions backstages just before their show at Lyon-France April 5th. The band is touring Europe right now to promote their new album « Blood Brothers« , a tribute to their friends Rose Tattoo’s founding members who passed away : Peter Wells the slide guitarist, Ian Rilen the bassist and Dallas « Digger »Royall the drummer. Mick and Angry Anderson the singer (both founding members too) keep the flames burning with Dai Pritchard (slide guitar) Steve King (bass) and Paul De Marco (drums). I played Black-Eyed Bruiser (Easybeats’song) and Lubricated (a stirring homage to the female masturbation !!) from the new album, Rock and roll outlaw and Nice Boys don’t play rock and roll !
We spoke with Mick about the Bon Scott Celebration Concert at Perth-Western Australia where we connected the first time through Buzz’s phone, their current tour around the whole Europe and their last album : the conversation is friendly, funny, sexy but very serious too !! Enjoy !
I will post the long interview with Angry Anderson (1:30h) in three parts I think, soon…stay connected !

Meltingpod Connections :
For those of you who listened to Mick Cocks’ other band « Doomfoxx » on Meltingpod myspace page and who asked me where to buy the cd, you can go to Armageddon music (same label than Rose Tattoo) or Hardy TV to hear some extracts and buy on line (same proposal for Rose Tattoo).

9/04/07 Rose Tattoo : Rock’n’Roll in their blood !

Rose Tattoo at Ninkasi Kao-Lyon-April 5th (click to enlarge the pictures)

I had to travel to Lyon to see Rose Tattoo the famous Australian rock band (No stop at Marseille…) but what a great show : a pure moment of pleasure and a nice meeting with true rockers ! I did an interview backstages during 1:30 hour with the singer Angry Anderson gazing into each other’s eyes…an intensive and passionate exchange !! After our short phone conversation at Perth for the Bon Scott Celebration Concert one month ago I at least met Mick Cocks, Rose Tattoo‘s guitarist in flesh : what a fun with him and a little later with the whole band : Steve King the bassist, Paul DeMarco the drummer and Dai Pritchard the slide guitarist. Don’t miss them : they are touring North Europe until the end of the month to promote their last album Blood Brothers ! The PODCAST and others pics are coming SOON !
Thanks to Buzz and Darrel for the connection and Arne for his help !

      Our meeting at Cassis with Bïa, Bïa singing (pic from her website)

No rock and roll today but you will not regret it I’m sure…
a sensual, delicate voice will take you far away near the Mediterranean in a amazing creek…Ok, the podcast is audio only but imagine :
Bïa, a beautiful Brazilian woman who sings just for you, the waves beat the rocks, the wind slowly blows (in my mic too sorry !!)…I hope after my last podcasts with the Australian hard rock stars you would appreciate her cool and quiet music too : a big challenge I know !! But, come on !!
Between the songs we spoke about her music, lyrics, being a citizen of the world and in the same time you could hear what you maybe never heard about Brazil : why some Brazilian women feel the necessity to learn how to dance with a teacher, how a lot of families emigrated under the military dictatorship who oppressed the country in the 70’s.
In the case, you couldn’t live without her after listening, you could find her albums on her nice website !
