  3. Death Wish and The Sentinel director Michael Winner’s 1984 cult classic thriller Scream for Help will be hitting Blu-ray for the first time this September via Scream Factory. The British horror film was written by Tom Holland (Fright Night, Child’s Play) and former Led Zeppelin member John Paul Jones composed the music. It stars Rachael Kelly, David Brooks, and Marie Masters. Extras are in progress and will be announced at a later date but until then you can check out the cover art. The national release date is September 18th but if you pre-order directly from Scream Factory they’ll ship it out two weeks early! Trailer: Synopsis: Terror invades an upper-class New York community as 17-year old Christie Cromwell cleverly uncovers her stepfather’s horrifying plot to murder her wealthy mother. She’s on to him, yet no one will believe her because she’s just a kid: smart, imaginative, maybe she’s just taken a crazy idea to the limit. Suspense builds when a series of shocking events confirms her worst fears. Alone, afraid and helpless, terrified Christie and her mother are held prisoner in their own home at the mercy of ruthless killers. https://www.dreadcentral.com/news/275546/tom-holland-penned-scream-for-help-hits-blu-ray-this-september/

    A Walk Down Memory Lane: The Houses of the Holy

    BBC Closing Its Historic Maida Vale Studios Artists rally behind London complex that’s hosted BBC performances since the 1930s BBC Maida Vale studios (Jonathan Brady/PA Images via Getty Images) The BBC has announced that it will depart and shut down its iconic Maida Vale Studios in north London. The complex, built in 1909, has been utilized by the BBC since the 1930s, playing host to the BBC Symphony Orchestra and World War II radio news bulletins. The space has hosted performances from icons like the Beatles, David Bowie, Radiohead, Led Zeppelin, Adele, JAY-Z, Nirvana, Joy Division, Oasis, and so many others. It’s where John Peel hosted his classic BBC Radio 1 sessions and was home to the BBC Radiophonic Workshop (best known for creating the “Doctor Who” theme song). Geoff Barrow of Portishead and Beak> is rallying against the decision, backed by artists including Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. BBC director general Tony Hall told staff in an email that Maida Vale will be replaced by a state-of-the-art facility in east London. It’s expected to be ready by 2022. “I understand how much our musical heritage at Maida Vale means to us, to artists and to audiences,” said Hall in the email. “We haven’t taken this decision lightly. But we’re determined to ensure that live music remains at the heart of the BBC and moving to this new development gives us the opportunity to do just that.” https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-44367396
  6. Robert Plant (center), with the Sensational Space Shifters, will appear Friday at the State Bank Amphitheatre at Chastain Park. Robert Plant, ‘golden god,’ ages gracefully in solo career By Bo Emerson, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Though he recently met with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, who were his mates in perhaps the greatest rock band of all time, Robert Plant doesn’t want us to make a big deal about that. So, while quashing thoughts of any Led Zeppelin reunions, Plant, who will celebrate his 70th birthday this year, spoke about his latest tour with the Sensational Space Shifters, which brings him to State Bank Amphitheatre at Chastain Park on Friday. He spoke from Austin, Texas, where he had just arrived from his home in England to record a song on the new album from his former love interest (and former bandmate) Patty Griffin. Q: How do you end up doing a rockabilly tune like the Ersel Hickey song “Bluebirds Over the Mountain,” on your new album “Carry Fire”? A: I like these side trips. Nobody gets excited about them but me. … We’re given these ridiculous gifts that we sharpen and meld and bend and twist throughout time, and if we stay in the one groove, I don’t see the benefit of that. It might be more fun being an accountant. Q: What did you think about winning the UK Americana Award? A: I think they were short of people. … Ozzy Osbourne wasn’t available. Actually, there’s not many Brits that you can say have sung alongside all these weirdo crackpots like the Milk Carton Kids, Steve Earle, Alison Krauss, Patty Griffin, Darrell Scott, Byron House. … I’ve played and sung with some amazing people who have given me so much more color, both to my gift and talent and to my own view of the whole deal about music. I’ve been very, very lucky. I could have just been a rock singer. Q: You’ve got Elle King opening the show. What do you look for in an opening act? A: You want somebody who’s different to what you’re like. Somebody who has a different appeal, will make the evening go one way or the other, and challenging maybe. You can’t have too many golden gods. Q: How did you team up with Chrissie Hynde (on “Bluebirds”)? A: I’ve known her, been an acquaintance for too many years. In the ebb and flow of gigs and venues and concerts and stuff, you meet a lot of people. Some people you gravitate toward; some people you don’t. She has a particularly original style. It’s a very alluring voice she carries inside that little frame of hers. Q: You have a big birthday coming up. A: So they say. Q: Does it make you more reflective? A: It makes me much more careful about eating lamb bones. … I had a meeting the other day with the other two chaps from the old band. And I thought, “Geez, this is it.” I didn’t see any dragon suits (a reference to Jimmy Page’s elaborately embroidered trousers) and I didn’t see any bare chests (a reference to Plant’s own Led Zep-era practice of going shirtless). Very well, John Paul Jones did fall off his chair. But he did it on purpose. They looked good. Q: That’s a tantalizing bit of news. Why would you be meeting with those fellows? A: Because there was nobody else around to hang out with. … Please don’t suggest … I wouldn’t leave the Sensational Space Shifters for anybody else. Except for, perhaps, Pink. CONCERT PREVIEW Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters Opening acts: Elle King and Seth Lakeman. 8 p.m. Friday, June 8. $53-$458. State Bank Amphitheatre at Chastain Park, 4469 Stella Drive NW, Atlanta. ticketmaster.com.

    Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience (Tour)

    Redditch to erect a statue of John Bonham in his honour

    CYMBALS flying, his drum sticks a blur, John Bonham, hailed as the greatest rock drummer there has ever been, has been re-born in Mercian Square, Redditch. At midnight on Wednesday night, Thursday morning, on the dawn of his 70th birthday, a two and a half tonne cast bronze tribute to the Led Zeppelin drummer was placed in the heart of his home town. The work of sculptor Mark Richards the piece, set on a plinth inspired by the band’s album Houses of the Holy, shows Bonham in full flow, hair a swirl as he beats out the rhythms which made the band famous. Ros Sidaway, owner of Birchfield Road record shop Vintage Trax who has been at the heart of efforts to get a tribute to John Bonham in Redditch, said: “It’s hard to believe that it’s finally here. “It was dropped in place at midnight, just at the start of John’s birthday. It was under floodlights but in the natural light of day you can see how beautiful it is.” The sculpture is the result of years of fund raising, the work of a small band of dedicated fans here in Redditch, and the support of John Bonham’s family, without whom it would never have been possible. Led Zeppelin sold more than 300 million albums worldwide and such is the appeal of the band that Redditch is likely to become a place of pilgrimage for fans around the globe. ----------------------------- https://redditchstandard.co.uk/news/cymbals-flying-bronze-tribute-to-led-zep-drummer-john-bonham-is-put-in-place/
