We’re at the mercy of modern technology for this episode of the Thrash Hits Podcast – Raz has decamped to the USA for a few weeks for SXSW and some California sunshine, leaving the rest of us here in miserable old England. With possibly the dodgiest Skype connection imaginable, Hugh and Raz discuss how SXSW has changed over the years, as well as speculating on how two very different kinds of hype affect bands – that currently being felt by Ghost (or Ghost BC, if you’re an American) and the kind that surrounds Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats.

Voodoo Six on Thrash Hits
August 20th, 2008
Newton’s publishers, Universal Music sued the US rock behemoths because the single, released in 2005 from their 2004 debut album Contraband, is an unmistakable copy of Newton’s track ‘Cyber Babe’ from his former band, Dirty Deeds’ 1999 album Real World. Newton said:
“A couple of years back a mate of mine in LA called me to say he’d heard what he thought was my song on the radio, and that he had been a bit shocked when he realised it was Velvet Revolver. When I checked it out myself, I genuinely couldn’t believe it, because it wasn’t as if it was close… it was basically the same riff.”
Voodoo Six are going to go on a nice long tour in September. You should buy tickets to some of the shows but they don’t really need the money any more.
