Jethro Tull are a unique band. I was introduced to them in the 70s, and I’m probably one of the only people that you’ll speak to nowadays that’s old enough to remember some of this stuff first-hand.
Everything from the production to the musicianship and the songwriting of all those guys – not just Ian Anderson, but Martin Barre [guitar] and Clive Bunker [drums] as well – I’ve always thought was amazing. Together, they wrote such brilliant rock pieces, which were almost classical in a sense. Then they had the woodwind and the flute and everything else. There’s no one else like them. It’s a signature sound. You add Ian Anderson’s vocals on top, and you just know it’s them. It can’t be anyone else.
My top two Tull albums are Benefit  and Aqualung .
I used to listen to Benefit before I even had my driver’s license. I can remember driving around in my friend’s car, and car stereos had just come in. Before everyone just had an AM radio, and now all of a sudden everyone had an 8-track with these big speakers in the back. I remember just floating around, smoking doobies in the back seat and just thinking, ‘What is this? This is off the charts dude!’
But I’ll come back to that. Let’s start with the first Tull song that I ever heard…
ACCEPT PROUDLY ANNOUNCE: We are part of FULL METAL MOUNTAIN Festival in Austria! We’ll make the Mountains Rock on APRIL 2nd 2016… THE FINAL SHOW OF OUR LAST PART OF BLIND RAGE TOUR FROM 2014 TO 2016! What a ride!
Metal Hammer: Roadkill is the first mobile game from TeamRock.
It’s a rhythm-action game where the music spawns the bad guys, in time to the music itself. So you can play the loudest tracks and the heaviest numbers, while taking down demons, straight from the depths of HELL.
Your job is to kill ’em all, save the planet, fight the darkness and generally act like a hero. You’re equipped with a mighty metal hammer, to crush, smash and destroy an army of creeps, fiends and freaks.
The music comes courtesy of the iconic heavy metal label Nuclear Blast. So now, for the first time, you can kill the bad guys, accompanied by bands including Suicide Silence, Epica, Sabaton, Hammerfall, Accept, Immortal, Devilment, Vader, Exodus and Threshold – with even more to come.
Metal Hammer: Roadkill is COMING SOON for iOS and Android mobile phones and tablets.
