2020 Barfly Top Ten: Ron Brown from Dimboola

I-94 Bar correspondent from Dimboola in The Outback, Australia

Hello Barflies. It’s been a shitty year. No gigs in this year's Top Ten but the Farmhouse has still been rocking

10. The Stooges - "Live At Goose Lake"
After all the stories about Dave Alexander's bass playing at this gig being horrible and Iggy sacking him is now put to rest it. Better than they said.

9 .Deniz Tek & James Williamson  - "Two For One"
When two guitar greats join forces, one would expect it to be good. And it is.

8, The Casanovas - "Reptilian Overlord"
The Casanovas
have released another fabulous record full of big riffs.

7. Mick Medew -   "Psychopharmacologist"
The songs and vocals are brilliant, and also thanks for the Sunday streaming sessions with Miss Border Collie.

6. AC/DC - "Power Up"
They’re back with their best album in years - a true tribute to a lost brother.

5. Drop Kick Murphys – live stream
The DKM did a wonderful live stream from Finway Park , spectacular sound and songs.

Last recording of L.A. biker band Angus Khan is exhumed

The long-unavailable second album from biker-metal band Angus Khan — “Angus Khan II: The Wrath of Khan” — is now available on Spotify. Angus Khan was a collaboration band between L.A. punk rock n roll acts The Streetwalkin' Cheetahs and B-Movie Rats that recorded one 2009 album (“Black Leather Soul”, also recently reissued in Spotify) before breaking up in 2012. But not before making one final album that has sat on the shelves...until now. 

The sound was biker metal meets glam rock meets ‘70s hard rock boogie and it’s all there in spades on this unearthed sophomore opus. Listen here
