The argument will forever rage, but Memphis, Tennessee, is as much the fountainhead of rock ’n’ roll as is Cleveland, Ohio. Whilst the north had Alan Freed as its turntable champion, the south was blessed with the madcap deejay, Dewey Phillips. Chances are, ole Dewey would have played most of the 75 titles that go to make up Raunchy Sugar on his Red Hot and Blue show that aired over WHBQ in Memphis.During the 1950s the city was alive with labels, record hops, musicians and the general chaos that goes hand in hand with the big beat. The geographical lie of the land helped a great deal, because the city was central to so many rural areas that harboured musical talent and style. Carl Perkins and Carl Mann gravitated to the area from Jackson, Tennessee, Billy Riley and Conway Twitty did the same from Arkansas, and Elvis Presley hit the trail from Mississippi in order to soak up some of that unique Shelby County action. Outside of Sam Phillips’ legendary Sun Records, the labels included such names as Hi, Cover, Fernwood, Meteor, Vaden Moon and Satellite.

Think Alvin Lee and most people will tell you what a great blues guitarist he is, but he's also one great rock and roller and this collection showcases that. This is a collection of songs he did both with his old band Ten Years After and "solo"…
Japanese quartet One OK Rock blast into the Western market with their eighth album, Ambitions. After signing with Fueled by Ramen in late 2016, One OK Rock – led by Takahiro Moriuchi, who sings in impeccable English – take their songwriting and production quality to a new level, encompassing a full Warped Tour scope that incorporates pop-punk, alt-emo, and even a little atmospheric post-hardcore energy akin to That's the Spirit-era Bring Me the Horizon. Ambitions includes highlights like "Bombs Away" and "Taking Off," as well as singles "Bedroom Warfare" and the sparkling Hands Like Houses-esque "We Are." All Time Low's Alex Gaskarth appears on "Jaded," while 5 Seconds of Summer join "Take What You Want." The album debuted in the Billboard 200 and topped the Japanese charts upon release.
