Most fans of Hard Rock and Metal are aware of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, and of the fact that it inspired many of the original US thrash bands. But the UK wasn't alone in having it's own new wave of metal! Hot on the heels of Iron Maiden, Saxon and Def Leppard were a plethora of Swedish Hard Rock and Metal bands, and at the centre of the action was guitarist Janne Stark of Overdrive! Overdrive have been back in action for the last few years, but Janne has also been very busy with a range of other projects including the melodic Metal of Locomotive Breath, the Prog-tinged Constancia, and 70s riff resurrection specialists Mountain of Power! The show features tracks from Overdrive (reviving a lesser known Russ Ballard song) and Locomotive Breath.
The show also brings you all the platters that matter, with old favourites and killer new cuts from Chris Ousey, April Wine, Matti Alfonzetti, ZZ Top and Thin Lizzy!
