“Black Rain”, a previously unreleased SOUNDGARDEN song which was recorded during the sessions for 1991’s “Badmotorfinger” album, received its world premiere earlier tonight (Sunday, August 8) on the Seattle, Washington radio station 107.7 The End.
This was my third time seeing The Answer live. The first two times was when they were occupying the support slot on AC/DC’s Black Ice World Tour. Those gigs took place in a 14,000 capacity arena in Dublin, and then in front of 70,000 people on a County Kildare racecourse. Both fine performances, but in truth not really the fairest of concert situations to truly appreciate this bands live skill. But tonight is a lot different, tonight is Whelan’s in Dublin, a legendary music venue on the South side of the city, an establishment that would scarcely host 500 people.
Being dormant is not a thing that White has seen much of during the last decade as he has always manage to stay busy in a multitude of projects, but never a solo album…..until now. The sound here can best be described as your trademark White vocals style
