Sleazy Sunday: Weekly review of sleaze, glam and hard rock world!

by Ante Topic
Sleazy Sunday

Okay, so I’ve noticed that there’s barely any glam, sleaze or hard rock here so I’ve been thinking what can be done to change that… After a lot of thinking any many ideas this one seemed to be the best – Sleazy Sunday!

The whole point of the Sleazy Sunday is to promote (mostly) young bands of this genre as it’s obvious that they need every exposure they can get.

And as you could guess this will only be once a week or at least I’ll try to make one review every week.

Anyway, I hope you’ll enjoy it!

  • Crashdïet have been on the road all week long. They left Belgium and headed towards Italy for a show in Milan on the 25th. They’ve been in Germany these past few days. They played the 14th anniversary party of Paunchy Cats tonight along with Speed Stroke, Maverick and the Trench Dogs.
