While visiting Chicago to attend this year’s ColdWaves event, ReGen Magazine editor-in-chief Ilker Yücel has made his second appearance as a guest on the MKUltraSound Podcast. Hosted by MK Ultra Magazine founder Alex Zander, the show is an extension of the eminent publication, a staple of news and discussion for the underground alternative music scene; on this show, Yücel and Zander shared an array of personal experiences, from the reopening of venues and the new requirements in the wake of the pandemic to shared stories about mutual acquaintances and musicians. Yücel particularly speaks well of Metro Chicago’s safety protocols and the adherence to vaccination and masking during ColdWaves. The two also discuss their favorite records from bands like MINISTRY, Electric Hellfire Club, and Type O Negative, including encounters with the late Peter Steele, meeting Raymond Watts of PIG in a venue basement that stinks of “asparagus piss,” friendships with BILE’s Krztoff and RH Bear, the irony of MTV continuing to hold music video awards, Sasha Grey’s taste for industrial music, The Joy Thieves, and more! Additionally, the show features two songs from now-defunct Baltimore industrial/rock band White Shadow, of which Yücel had been a member, as well as “Spy vs Spy,” a new track from Louisiana goth/rock act Nadjia. ReGen photographer Tabetha Patton even appears to participate in KISS Trivia, making for what for us was a delightful time. – ReGen Mag

ReGen Editor’s Note: “Publications like MK Ultra and Industrial Nation are a huge part of the reason ReGen exists – the love for the music, the art, the culture of creative minds, the “weirdos,” all bringing something special and unique to the world. I’d like to say a huge thank you to Alex Zander and all of his cohorts on the MKUltraSound Podcast for what they do and for being gracious enough to have me and Tabetha on their show!”

“Desire, Denial and Paramania” will be released in CD form as well as digitally worldwide on October 7, 2021. The release is out via Emergency Hearts, an indie collaborative music label/ media project in Austin, TX founded by author, musician and gallery owner Scott Crow (Lesson Seven, Audio Assault).

About Sine

Sine is an alternative rock/electronic band created and led by singer and drummer, Rona Rougeheart. She has stepped from behind the kit to create her own female fronted project that weaves dance beats with industrial noise and layers of booming bass, synths and guitars.

Rougeheart, born in New York, grew up as a military child, living all over the U.S. and in Okinawa, Japan. Her father was a musician who taught her how to play keys and guitar. Early in her musical career, she played drums for multiple bands in Austin, TX, catching the eye of Gretsch Drums who, in 2012, gave her her first endorsement. Gibraltar hardware also added her to their roster.

In April, 2019, she landed a direct support slot for Peter Murphy in Orlando, FL for the 40th Anniversary of Bauhaus Ruby Tour with David J. The night seemed ill-fated when Peter was unable to perform, but was revitalized when she joined David J, Curse Mackey, Mark Gemini-Thwaite and Marc Slutsky for an impromptu performance of Bauhaus tunes.

From that night, a new project emerged between David J, Curse Mackey and herself.

L.A. Guns – “Cannonball” – Official Music Video

Long running hard rockers L.A. Guns have announced the release of their new studio album, “Checkered Past” on November 12, 2021.

Written and recorded during late 2020 and early 2021, “Checkered Past” sees Tracii Guns, Phil Lewis, and company continuing with the darker lyrical tone of the preceding studio albums, “The Devil You Know” and “The Missing Peace”, while incorporating their classic rock influences into the mix. Heavier songs are mixed with bluesier, boogie inducing tracks and dark, introspective ballads, often harkening back to the first three albums the band made, but also pushing the band forward. When fans absorb the album as a whole, they’ll see that the tracklisting is divided up into ‘sets’ or ‘suites’, where a sonic style is explored across multiple songs before moving on to the next, making for a remarkable listening experience.

Feeling inspired and excited like they did when they first started out, but with many years of wisdom and experience under their belts, and most importantly, a renewed and stronger creative and personal relationship, Guns and Lewis are maintaining a creative peak that started with “The Missing Peace”. “Checkered Past” shows a band invigorated and ready to bash you over the head, as well as “wow” you with some epic, slower songs, and even make you dance a bit to some rock ‘n roll.

Since their self-titled debut in 1988 to the widely praised comeback albums “The Missing Peace” and “The Devil You Know”, L.A. GUNS, led by Tracii Guns and Phil Lewis have always delivered solid rock ‘n roll to their fans. This current incarnation of the band has been touring non-stop, with a notable break coinciding with all other touring bands, and the cohesiveness of the unit, not to mention Phil’s stunning and unique vocals and Guns’ mind-bending guitar playing, are on full display here. A must hear and listen for all fans of the band, both new and old.

L.A. Guns never looked like the pretty poster boys that so many of their peers did, but more the band that you would be terrified to bump into in an alley as they would likely be carrying switchblades and ready for a fight. But despite having many songs to back up that image, the band could also write powerful ballads (see the smash hit, “The Ballad Of Jayne” for Exhibit A of this argument) that showed there were some serious songwriting chops in the band. Those chops are on full display on the band’s two most recent studio albums and the upcoming new album, “Checkered Past,” arguably one of the most vital and exciting releases in the band’s catalog.

Tracklist:
1.Cannonball
2.Bad Luck Charm
3.Living Right Now
4.Get Along
5.If It’s Over Now
6.Better Than You
7.Knock Me Down
8.Dog
9.Let You Down
10.That Ain’t Why
11.Physical Itch

LINE-UP:
Phil Lewis – vocals
Tracii Guns – guitar
Ace Von Johnson – guitar
Johnny Martin – bass
Scot Coogan – drums

“We are thrilled to bring fans of THE DOORS together in cinemas worldwide to share in a much-needed concert experience,” said Kymberli Frueh, SVP of programming and content acquisitions at Trafalgar Releasing. “The 50-year celebration of ‘L.A.

Woman” album producer and engineer Bruce Botnick.
