Since their reunion in 2005, Foreigner has become a very successful unit again, despite only founder Mick Jones remained from the legendary line-up. However with Kelly Hansen he has found not only someone who could match the warm timbre of Lou Gramm but also improve and add his own identity to the vocals of the many classic songs the band has produced in their 40 years of existence. Of course many best of albums have passed the revue but this time a live registration with mainly the ballads was a first.

Although this is the fifth release for this UK band, I’ve never heard something of them before.

New double album of the legendary boogie rockers where the first disc contains songs inspired by the adventures Status Quo experienced during the making of the movie ‘Bula Quo’ and which also served as soundtrack. The surroundings in Fiji, where the movie was filmed, inspired the band to put some new musical elements to their sound that doesn’t sound like the typical Quo sound. Songs as ‘Looking Out For Caroline’, ‘Mystery Island’ or ‘Bula Bula Quo’ make you feel like you’re on an island full of palm trees and sunny beaches.

The Resistance was formed in 2011 and are based in Gothenburg and Stockholm. A fairly young band of witch basically four guys who made up their mind and recorded the music they wanted play for a long time.

But unfortunately this is a fairly young band so they haven't got a lot of info about them online.
