    ASHRR – “Dark Eyes”

    In the ‘80s, when Mark Burgess’ band The Chameleons ended most of their gigs with their angry and sometimes hysterical cover version of Alternative TV’s “Splitting In Two”, the Mancunian singer chanted, “We’re living in strange times,” a reference to their third record (Strange Times), but also a recurring...

    J GRGRY – “Dinosaurs” (2020)

    QRO actually reviewed “Dinosaurs” in March 2019 (QRO review), but J GRGRY made a new version, after finding several problems with the previous incarnation, as he explains: “The version from early 2019 was a demo we were working on. I wanted to have some new material out for the...

    J GRGRY – “Open Roads”

    Seattle’s J GRGRY (Joe Gregory) keeps on advancing new tracks of what will be his new record, out next year. After the feisty “Imagination” (QRO review) and the anthemistic “Dinosaurs” (QRO review), he now presents “Open Roads”. The song deals with the moving of Gregory and his now fiancé...
