Bluedive cover art

Santa Clarita, CA Pop-Punk trio Bluedive give the year 2020 the big f you with their song “2020”, which comes from their recently released debut EP “Bittersweet”.

Aidan Dixon (vocals, guitar) says of the song, “So basically, writing 2020 was like letting out a bunch of repressed frustration about the whole Covid thing.”

The band formed amidst the pandemic and drummer Riff Gordon reflects, “Sebastian and I had played together in our high school jazz band so when he text and asked if I wanted to get together and play with him and Aidan I was happy to have a musical outlet after months of stay at home orders, the more we started to jam the more we realized the Covid shutdown afforded us the time to experiment with our music and figure out what we wanted Bluedive to be, that’s where the name comes from, when things seem to be at their darkest we find a way to dive into something positive.” Stream the song below:

Home video of Ed Sheeran performing in school production of ‘Grease’ to be sold at auction

A home video of a teenage Ed Sheeran performing in his school production of the musical Grease is going up for auction, offering a rare look at the singer before global fame beckoned.

The film, which is nearly two hours long, shows a 15-year-old Ed portraying the character Roger.

Sporting a leather jacket and slicked-back hair, Sheeran delivers a solo rendition of the track ‘Mooning’ in the video.

The recording is now being sold by Omega Auctions, which has shared a preview clip of the performance ahead of the June 29 sale.

Auctioneer Paul Fairweather said: “Over the last year or so we’ve seen an exponential increase in interest for memorabilia and collectables relating to contemporary artists, especially Ed Sheeran.

“We sold a rare early CD title for £50,000 in September of last year and since then the enquiries and consignments have been non-stop.

“The footage is a great watch and we think it definitely gives a hint as to Ed’s star potential.”

The sale comes as Sheeran gears up for his own return, with comeback single ‘Bad Habits’ set for release later this month.

The singer-songwriter will unveil the new track on June 25, marking his first solo record since ‘Happier’ in 2018.

“I’ve been working away in the studio over recent months and I can’t wait for you to hear Bad Habits,” Sheeran said.

“I always aim to push myself and my music in new directions and hopefully you’ll hear that on the new single. Feels great to be back!”

The track will also receive its first live outing when he performs live from Ipswich Town’s Portman Road on June 25th for TikTok’s UEFA Euro 2020 show.

Sheeran teased the new single last month, calling it “really different” during an interview with BBC Radio 1.

Ratt’s Stephen Pearcy Working On Double Album and Docuseries

Stephen Pearcy podcast promo

Ratt frontman Stephen Pearcy is keeping really busy of late working on a new double album and he also shared some details about a new docuseries called “Backstage Pass” that he is working on.

He spoke about both during a new interview with Vintage Rock Pod. He said of the new solo album, “So much time has passed since we started writing, Eric and I, my guitar player co-writer on most of my solos. It was so long ago and the record was done.

“We had the songs written like six months ago and that was a year process. So since then I’ve been writing like a fool and writing with him and all these new songs.

“So, I figured let’s do a double record and give it all you got. Just go in there, lay it down and say here ‘This is what happens in two years when you write tunes’. And they’re way different. There there’s such an ebb and flow. It goes all over the place this record.

“Our new bass player, Jerry Montana, he did time in ‘Hell Yeah’. You know, he’s a more of an aggressive writer / player. So these songs could be heavy, heavy, or they could be Ratt sounding, obviously, if I write them. But I’m trying to take them outside, I’m trying to do a lot of different things, you know, and it’s going to be interesting because it’s going to go all over the place, so good luck!”

He revealed plans for the docuseries when he was asked if fans can expect the album to be released early next year. He responded, “Yeah, it’s been put off. We’re going to try to get through this year. I’ve got some things to take care of with what the band Ratt’s going to do and just on the move on other things, projects and trying to get this docu-series out.

“I have a show in production it’s called Backstage Pass. The show is pretty much wanting to find out what legacy do I want to leave, and it will be visual, it will be a lot more involved.

“The history, Robin, Tawny, teenagers. I met them when they were teenagers. They lived together at a duplex down the street from my grandmother. No one knows this sh*t. So we’ve been friends for ages and Tawny too, you know.” Listen to the full podcast episode here.
