Zal shares his recollections of The Sensational Alex Harvey Band's career from beginning to end, and also reveals that he's putting together a new project with former Only Ones bassist Alan Mair.

The show concludes with an interview with innovative young metal band Sanguine, whose new album 'Black Sheep' blends melody and crushing heaviness to impressive effect
