Cradle Of Filth Announce 20th Anniversary Reissue

(TeamRock Radio) Cradle Of Filth will re-release their second album as Dusk And Her Embrace... The Original Sin on July 8 to celebrate its 20th anniversary. The reissue will feature the band's previously unheard original recordings from 1995. They were never used due to a legal battle with Cradle Of Filth's record label at the time, Cacophonous Records.

But the new record is set to relaunch through the same label. Last year frontman Dani Filth told TeamRock: "We thought the label were doing a sh*t job - which they were hence why we were taking them to court - and in the end we won the rights to the music.

"The exciting thing is the original recordings of Dusk - which were literally just sat gathering dust on someone's shelf - are actually going to see the light of day next year to mark the 20th anniversary of the album." Read more here.

Memphis Country Blues Festival Documentary Being Crowdfunded

(The Blues) Blues fans are being asked to help fund a documentary about the famous Memphis Country Blues Festival. A Kickstarter campaign has been launched with the aim of raising $35,000 for the movie, called The Blues Society: A Documentary Film.

It's directed by Augusta Palmer, the daughter of Robert Palmer - a member of the Memphis Country Blues Society - and will feature archive footage from the 1960s events as well as new interviews.

The Memphis Country Blues Society launched the first festival in 1966 and held three further events which became the focal point for blues music in a culturally significant period of America's history.

Palmer says: "Since the first of these events took place almost 50 years ago, it's urgent that we do interviews with people who were there and search for archival materials that will help us tell this amazing story." Read more here.

"We were thinking, 'F*** dude, we're supposed to be in the studio,' so we've got a little recording thing in the back of our bus. We've got until June 11, so we've got a little time.

"As soon as we get back we're going to bury ourselves in it. We want this done - and we want to spend time, but not too much, because we wanna get it out." Read more here.

Spider Reuniting For One Final Show

(Classic Rock) Boogie-rockers Spider return from a three-decade absence later this year, with bassist/vocalist Brian Burrows revealing that brotherly love was partly behind the decision to reunite the group for one final show.

"From a personal point of view, I didn't really want it to happen," he admits. "My preference was to leave folks with their memories of four young men with energy and passion for rock music."

However, last summer the band - completed by rhythm guitarist/frontman Colin Harkness, guitarist Sniffa and drummer Rob E Burrows - appeared at a fan club meet and greet event and ended up playing a short unplugged set. Things went so well that they got together again to rehearse in private.

"Something just clicked," Burrows says. "It was fun, it was good. We all appeared to enjoy each other's company, too - so I gave in to my brother Rob's nagging."

Spider's one-off show takes place at the Santa Pod Racetrack in Bedfordshire on Saturday October 8. It will feature their original line-up (Sniffa having quit at the tail end of the original run). Read more here.

Saint Agnes Premiere New Single 'Sister Electric'

(Classic Rock) Saint Agnes have premiered their new single with Classic Rock. Sister Electric will be released on June 17 on Death or Glory Gang Records, and is the follow-up to last year's A Beautiful Day For Murder single.

Sister Electric will be released as a super limited edition vinyl seven inch, lathe-cut in real time on forty year old machines rescued from a Karaoke bar in Tokyo. The single will be released on clear vinyl, and each copy comes wrapped in a unique, hand-drawn sleeve.

"Sister Electric was summoned into being with a ritualistic invocation," says singer Kitty Arabella Austen. "She is the embodiment of that feeling you get when you listen to your favourite song and become a thing possessed... We cast spells on vintage microphones, invoked demons with a 50's junk shop Kay guitar and called to higher female powers with screaming harmonica. The Sister has been summoned. And she is among us."
