Deep Dive With Andy Curran Into ENVY OF NONE- Alex Lifeson-DareDevils Incorporated!

It still boggles my mind that a little over a year ago I reached out to Andy through his rep Chip at “Chipster PR & Consulting”  and from that initial email I have had the pleasure to chat with Andy about 5 or 6 times now.

This latest talk was no exception as Andy always gives great stories as I made this chat a straight deep dive into Andy’s latest project E.O.N.

Alex Lifeson as we all know bends the six strings on the album so it was a real treat hearing Andy’s thoughts about what brought Alex back in as band member.

As Andy always does is he also gives us a little scoop that he is working on a new hard rock project where he does all the singing in a new band tentatively called “Daredevils Incorporated”.

One busy fella that Curran guy is and the fact that he can hang with a stream hack like me shows you his character…

One of the fastest streaming hours ever I have been involved in!

My pal Muk said it best….

“Great interview Deke. One of your best. Bizarre that you’re having a conversation with a guy in a band with the guy that was in a band with Neil Peart”

Truth!

Scotch On The Rocks Presents Andy Curran!

I had the privilege of once again speaking to Andy Curran. This chat was exclusively about Andy’s current band ENVY OF NONE that features of course Alex Lifeson. Andy as alway’s gives a ton of great insight into what went into the songs and how he has had another pinch me moment in the success of the E.O.N album since it hit the streets back on April 8th.

Check it out below….

 

April Scores!

Snowman rules when he posts all his findings in one month. So this morning when I saw John’s post I thought, “Well maybe todays the day I nick John’s idea and run with it, for this month anyway!”

So here’s my findings for the month… Who knows folks I may do this again or it may be a one shot deal!
I was on the hunt for Motley Crue’s Too Fast For Love on vinyl for months at a decent price. About 6 months ago I left my email contact info at Encore Records (Kitchener) as they would notify me if a vinyl copy came in and earlier this month I received that email. Ordered it that morning and Mark at Encore shipped it out that day. Great service.
Watching Thursday Night Record Club with my pal Brent Jensen can be hazardous to my wallet. One episode featured Brent and Alex Huards breakdown of The Black Crowes “Southern Harmony” record. Even though they both rated it a 6/10 I still ordered it from Amazon at a decent price as this was another one of those “must get’s” Love this album and still respect them for actually playing Tbay back in 93 on this tour even though Rich Robinson in a printed article labelled Tbay as a “BumF**K Town” bahaha… One more thing  that I dig is the front/back cover where you have 4 of the Crowes looking well, let’s say a cross between goth and drugged out while Gorman looks like a lawyer! Man I miss 1992/1993!
Found a sealed 180 gram( at one of the few used shops here in town) of one of my favourite KISS studio albums “Rock N Roll Over” which was sealed for $20 and is an upgrade to my original copy.
For myself streaming is a great try before you buy feature and that was the deal in buying my first ever GHOST release on vinyl ( I have purchased the last few straight from itunes). Tobias Forge is a great singer/songwriter. “Impera” is a great rock record as is the packaging which includes a 28 page book.
Andy Curran has released the very excellent “Envy of Non record which has been 4 years in the making. I ordered this online from the E.O.N web store and it was easy peasy.  There will be a chat with Mr. Curran at some point!
I was very fortunate a few weeks back to have book writing machine Martin Popoff hop on Scotch On The Rocks and chat about Judas Priest. I was missing the two books that Martin had written about The Metal Gods but I very quickly rectified that situation by scooping these two books direct from Martin.
I grabbed a couple of T Shirts as well. Casablanca Records, Atlantic Records and a knock off Creatures of The Night Tour Tee from 1983. There are not enough Tee shirts with Vinnie Vincent’s picture on them in Tbay!
One of the most important albums that I have been waiting for is the 5LP set 40th Anniversary Box set of RUSH’s “Moving Pictures”. I preordered this back in February from RUSH’s Backstage Club as they had it for a great price (cheaper than AMAZON) and with free shipping. Unlike the KISS Online shop which was a headache in getting my stuff dealing with the RUSH webstore was way better. They sent out emails keeping me in the loop on when it was coming and also to make sure I received it! That is great business!
