After their successful acoustic shows in 2011, The Mariana Hollow are pleased to announce they have been hand picked by Breed 77 themselves for a series of intimate acoustic shows in April.

Guitarist Danny Russell explains: "We spent a long time reworking our songs so they worked better in a more mellow acoustic context, allowing the space for Spinky's vocals to really soar. The feedback we got from these shows was incredible, and now we're delighted to be given the chance to go out and bring the acoustic TMH to a national audience with a band of Breed 77's pedigree."

The Mariana Hollow's album 'Black Velvet Sky' was released this week and their video for the debut single from the album 'Your Halo' is available to view here.



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.
