Hidden Gems: Green Dollar Colour – Green Dollar Colour

Paris was renowned for its blues / jazz scene in the 1950s, so it’s no wonder that a strong influence of that sort of music survives to this day. Green Dollar Colour started when Anthony De Lemos, a Parisian in Australia, found a rock singer called Lex Koritni in 2003. Related to Aussie rock royalty such as Jimmy Barnes and Swanee, he was well steeped in the sounds of classic rock. The two paired up and produced this one, self-titled album. Mixing De Lemos’s classy, blues-influenced soloing and imaginative riffing with Kortini’s gritty voice, the album was an instant...

Album review: LA Guns – The Missing Peace

LA Guns were a minor band in the Hollywood glam scene. Forever cursed with comparisons to Guns ‘n’ Roses (they provided the ‘Guns’ from the name as Axl Rose was briefly in the band), in reality they had less success than bands like Skid Row.

As the 80s disappeared, and grunge took over, while many bands fell apart, LA Guns soldiered on, and while many commentators have poked fun at the fact...
