PRESS RELEASES

From NME.Com –
Nikki Sixx reveals details of 'Heroin Diaries' in LA
Nikki Sixx, bassist for Motley Crue, revealed details of his forthcoming book 'Heroin Diaries' and premiered songs from the accompanying soundtrack with his new band Sixx:AM at a press conference in Los Angeles this morning (July 16).
The bassist spoke frankly about his former addiction to heroin and other drugs, which is chronicled in the book due out in September.
'Heroin Diaries' contains excerpts from Sixx's 1987 diaries during the height of Motley Crue's fame, and graphically depicts the bassist's life-threatening struggle with drugs.
It also includes writings from people close to him at the time, including Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, Guns N Roses guitarist Slash, and Prince back-up singer Vanity.
"I felt the book wasn't complete without other people's perspectives and opinions on what I was like as an addict," said Sixx.

REVIEWS
========
FABLES LAST STAND ‘Bite The Hook’ (CDS 2007) www.myspace.com/fableslaststand

The band’s debut single and they have already been gaining favourable reviews from amongst others ‘Classic Rock’ magazine. They really have tapped into the AC/DC sound riff wise and it is not a bad tune at all. Nice mean and dirty chorus makes for a very strong tune. The other track ‘Road Religion’ is okay but nowhere near as good as the title track.
A band to watch and I am sure live they will be even better than on CD.

THE KING BLUES ‘Come Fi Di Youth’ (CDS 2007)

Ska with a bit of rap is not my preferred choice of listening and it has to be said the ‘vocals’ are frankly pants. Doubtless someone will like them but most will pass them by.
