What goes around comes around in the blues world. Although T-Model Ford is from Mississippi, not all of his influences are Mississippi Delta influences – his dusky, moody electric blues also owe something to Chicago (Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf), Detroit (John Lee Hooker), and Texas (Lightnin' Hopkins). Of course, Waters, Hooker, and Wolf were all born in Mississippi; they were Southern bluesmen who moved north, plugged in, and became identified with electric post-World War II Northern blues. But Hooker wasn't born in Detroit any more than Waters and Wolf were born in Chicago. So again, what goes around comes around in the blues world. Whether you describe Ford's approach as Northern or Southern – and truth be told, it's a combination of the two – Bad Man is a compelling slice of tough, gritty, genuinely lowdown blues.
Michael Katon’s latest release should provide solace to his loyal legion of followers who feared that he had lost his edge with his last release, The Rage Called Rock n Roll.

Now, to be honest, Katon’s music has always had the subtlety of a ballpeen hammer, but, that also is part of the charm of Katon’s flat out, guitar driven boogie. Katon’s music works best in a sweat filled, beer soaked club with some barbecue on the side. Katon plays hard driving boogie for a hard partying crowd. Katon truly delivers the goods on Bad Machine…..

It was dedicated "to my cat Jerry—also Tom, Oscar and Tiffany, and all the cat lovers across the universe—screw everybody else". For the album, Mercury compiled influences ranging from disco to dance music. It was a contrast to typical Queen work, as they were rock-orientated. The album took nearly two years to record as Mercury had to gather enough material, while committing to band activities. Initially, the album was supposed to feature duets with Mercury and Michael Jackson…
