1. Scots; A magic spell; a witch's trick.

TDATS 25 features Scottish bands. A selection of The Pictish nation's finest vintage rock practitioners. Iron Claw shouldn't be too much of a mystery by now, they were a band who seems to have shown great promise, picking up on the Sabbath sound very early and matching it in places with undeniable talent, unfortunatley luck was not on their side and they have only recently had an official release, after years of lurking in bootleg limbo. Bodkin play some great dark prog and Iron Virgin peddled some good glam with decent heaviness (and a hilarious image). Holocaust are here as a late entry, I was looking for late-70s NWOBHM and really had a tough time finding Scottish examples, until I found Holocaust, who formed in 1977. The band on track 11 were a pop group who on occasion delved into heavier territory and "Í've been around too long" is a great track. Many thanks to the various knowledgable people at stonerrock.com, rateyourmusic.com, hellridemusic.com and progarchives.com for their insight which has helped me research these bands.

The 11th in the TDATS series. Featuring Mama Lion's powerful female vox, Tractor's progressive doom excellence, Chook and Fanny Adams' catchy Aussie grooves and a super group featuring Mountain's Leslie West & Corky Laing, and Cream's Jack Bruce no less. We also have the wonderfully obscure B.F. Trike, and The Ghost's awesome heavy folk. The cover of the week is Trouble's version of the classic Lucifer's Friend song Ride The Sky. Another great one I think! Here's a taster of Chook:
