Biff Byford, lead singer of Welsh heavy metal band Saxon, talks to us in London on the eve of the release of their 2st Album release " Battering Ram". Fresh from a tour supporting Motorhead in USA.
You can order your personal copy of 'Battering Ram' here: Amazon - CD: http://smarturl.it/SX_Battering_Ram_CD Amazon - LP: http://smarturl.it/SX_Batt_Ram_LP Legendary British heavy metal quintet’s 21st studio album boasts a clinically ‘heavy’ echo of their glorious NWOBHM sound. Saxon have never dealt in half-truths or incomplete missions. With Sacrifice they filled your heads with heavy metal thunder, and now Saxon want nothing more than to crush them with their very own, hand-crafted, not-safe-for-children brand new album, Battering Ram. Not. A. Problem. With Biff Byford singing as well as he ever has, Paul Quinn and Doug Scarratt making full use of the term ‘shredding’ with their guitars and the lock-steady rhythm of Nibbs Carter’s bass and Nigel Glockler’s drums, the future and the past crash together in an ear-scintillatingly engaging, raucous, melodic-yet-classically heavy ten songs collection which will instantly be hailed as a Saxon classic. The title track, with its delectable twin guitar assault heralding the album’s commencement, gives the listener an instant crack around the chops, whilst traditionalists will be delighted to hear such a perfect marriage of old, classic Saxon with the newer, fresher invective in such riff-fronted fare as “Destroyer” and “Stand Your Ground”, but there are still moments of space and exploration which fans will love.

The power ballad was released in November 1989 and written by bandmates Rachel Bolan and Dave "the Snake" Sabo. It reached number six on the Billboard Hot 100 and number twenty-three on the Mainstream Rock Tracks in early 1990. The song also charted at #36 on the UK Singles chart. In a 2007 interview, vocalist Sebastian Bach commented, "'I Remember You' was the #1 prom song in the United States of America in the year 1990....You talk about making memories! Literally the whole country of America did their prom dance to 'I Remember You' one year, and that's a real heavy memory to beat." "I Remember You" (Rachel Bolan, Dave Sabo) Woke up to the sound of pouring rain The wind would whisper and I'd think of you And all the tears you cried -- they called my name And when you needed me I came through Paint a picture of the days gone by When love went blind and you would make me see I'd stare a lifetime into your eyes So that I knew that you were there for me Time after time you were there for me Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand Love letters in the sands - I remember you And through the sleepless nights, through every endless day I wanna hear you say, "I remember you." We spent the summer with the top rolled down Wished ever after would be like this You said I love you babe, without a sound I said I'd give my life for just one kiss I'd live for your smile and die for your kiss Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand Love letters in the sands - I remember you And through the sleepless nights, through every endless day I wanna hear you say, "I remember you." We've had our share of hard times But that's the price we paid And through it all we kept the promise that we made I swear you'll never be lonely Woke up to the sound of pouring rain Washed away a dream of you But nothing else could ever take you away 'Cause you'll always be my dream come true Oh my darling, I love you Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand Love letters in the sands - I remember you Through the sleepless nights, through every endless day I wanna hear you say, "I remember you." Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand Love letters in the sands - I remember you. Through all the sleepless nights, through every endless day I wanna hear you say, "I remember, I remember you!"

Get the Sky Saxon 'Transparency' CD+DVD here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/220791597206 The Sixties psychedelic garage legend:- * Veteran Sky Saxon who influenced The Doors; the punk scene; and was at the heart of psychedelia * Studio album recorded in London in 2005; his first for many years. * Backed by members of BARRACUDAS, SCIENTISTS and SPACEMEN 3. * DVD is a live show of 15 songs incl. original hits plus this 26-min documentary & interviews. In 1965, former rock’n’roll singer Sky Saxon formed THE SEEDS. Their biggest hit, ‘Pushing Too Hard’ took a year to reach the US top 40 in 1966, but was followed by further US hits ‘Mr. Farmer’, ‘Cant Seem To Make You Mine’, ‘One Thousand Shadows’. Their two 1966 albums ‘THE SEEDS’ and the more adventurous ‘A WEB OF SOUND’ were an undeniably simple but nonetheless brilliant blend of British and blues influences, leading to comparisons as being ‘America’s own Rolling Stones’ These raw and simplistic records with Sky’s idiosyncratic vocals, Wurlitzer combo keyboards and fuzztone guitar became to epitomise the phenomenon ‘Garage Rock’ and a decade later influenced punk, but the Seeds soon surpassed that label. In 1967 they coined the term ‘Flower Power’ and were at the centre of the new psychedelic scene. Hanging out with the Mothers of Invention, Captain Beefheart and The Monkees, Sky’s new compositions like ‘March of the Flower Children’ and ‘Travel With Your Mind’ on the ‘FUTURE’ album contained acid-tinged playful whimsy, and like the Beatles they innovated with Eastern-style instrumentation. At this point in their success they headlined over bands such as The Doors (who built both their vocal & keyboard sound upon the Seeds style), Buffalo Springfield, The Byrds, The Kinks, Vanilla Fudge, The Supremes, and split the bill in New York with Jimi Hendrix. They cameoed in Jack Nicholson’s ‘Psych Out’ movie, sold out the Hollywood Bowl and mega-success seemed around the corner. Later in 1967 Sky released a blues collaboration with Muddy Waters ‘A SPOONFUL OF SEEDY BLUES’ followed in early ’68 with The Seeds ‘RAW & ALIVE: MERLIN’S MUSIC BOX’, a live album showcasing the band to be a powerhouse, but shortly after they disbanded. Since then Sky changed his name to Sky Sunlight Saxon and occasionally resurfaced to release a solo album, whilst always remaining true to his 60’s principles. The Seeds’ huge influence is demonstrated by the many artists who’ve covered them, including Garbage, The Ramones, The Damned, Pere Ubu, The Dwarves, Residents, Cabaret Voltaire, Pretty Things, Billy Childish, Johnny Thunders & Noel Gallagher. In 2004 Sky Saxon resurrected The Seeds to tour UK & Europe with Arthur Lee and Love and on their own, and recorded the ‘RED PLANET’ album in America. Sky recorded a new studio album ‘TRANSPARENCY’ in 2005 and filmed a DVD in London with members of The Barracudas, The Scientists and Spacemen 3, issued as a double package release in September 2005. Sky Saxon & the Seeds toured his last tour of Europe from August through to October 2005. Sadly, Sky Saxon passed away in June 2009.
