Failing that it could be human trafficking, both the suspects have lengthy criminal histories, wouldn't be surprised if they're involved with a trafficking ring.


Kill it .......... problem over.

Imagine the justice that would be felt around the Western world when if some puke chooses to act like a derranged w*nker we as a collective just axe them out of existence?

We are over privileged in our society to the point where people think they can do acts like this because their "protected" by law, in some cultures if you did this the person caught would be crying his eyes out knowing what's coming, in our society you get a tattooed up loser who smirks in court then sticks his fingers up to the judge.

Not sure a life sentence in a US state prison would be much fun tbh.

Blues yes

I love 50`s rocknroll, Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, BB King etc. A lot of that crosses over into blues of course

Then theres the wonderful Credence Clearwater Revival who, to me, are more blues influenced than anything else

Im a huge fan of the present day JD McPherson, who is heavily influenced by rockabilly, blues and early rocknroll

And finally in the UK we have a subgenre of blues rock known as pub rock, which was big in the 70s and 80s.

Top of that particular tree are the legendary Dr Feelgood, with their amazing guitarist Wilko Johnson. Wilko, faced with a terminal cancer diagnosis, decided to carry on playing gigs until he died. His surgeon phoned him up a few years later to ask why he was still alive..... long story short, he is still alive and beat the cancer.




Nice! I've been really digging Blues/Funk/Rock stuff lately. St. Paul and the broken bones, Monophonics, Dan & Drum.

We have a local guy here in St. Louis that made a lot of noise in the Blues industry. He's young (I think 26 now), but has an old Blues sound/soul. His name is Marquis Knox. I've seen him about 20 times now. I know he did some tours over in Europe this past year. He's one of my favs right now, yes I'm a little bias cause he's from my city, but still good.


I'll give him a listen, cheers for the tip

If JD McPherson is ever playing near you, definately go see him live. His gigs are buzzing, amazing atmosphere. Hes from Oklahoma

Can confirm.

Fire bug, fire bug :musicnote:


Fire Bug is a tune!

Give Precious a listen. His voice is incredible on that

The OurVinyl Sessions version in particular is very fine indeed. I feel "Precious" represents what his voice sounds like when it's at its most spontaneous.

What sets him apart from many other artists is that JD is a multidimensional revivalist. His versatile, rich voice and skilled band successfully revive soul, rockabilly, blues, psychedelic rock, heck, occasionally even ska and reggae.

The one critic I would have of JD is that a lot of the spotlight goes to himself (band name, album covers), when Jimmy, Doug, Ray and Jason each make pertinent contributions.


Absolutely, I see them as a band, not a man. Big Jimmy Sutton is awesome. I met him and JD after a gig in London a few years back. Real gents, a pleasure to chat to them
