Desertfest London are proud to announce that Lowrider will reform for a special one off show at Desertfest. It's been nine years since they disbanded having begun their journey in the mid 90s, in Karlstad, Sweden.

You can look forward to them blasting out some of their heavy stoner riff laden songs such as 'Flat Earth' and 'Caravan' over the weekend of 26-28th April 2013.

The Swedish stoner four-piece comprises of Peder Bergstrand on bass/vox, Ole Hellquist on lead guitar/vox, Niclas Stalfors on guitar and Andreas Eriksson on drums. They only released one full studio album, 'Ode To Io', in 2000, They also released a double EP with Nebula the previous year.

So do not miss out on what could be either your first or last chance to see Lowrider.



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
