'Boo Hoo Hoo'
(Provogue Records)
Release Date: 20th January 2014


no sinner

You know a band is doing something right when the record company send over an unknown artist from Vancouver to London to play a small intimate club gig and supply the invited press with enough booze to sink the Titanic.

No Sinner broke the ice and made an impressive impact with their debut UK showing at the Black Heart in Camden last November with a set of scorching dirty blues fronted by the delicious Colleen Rennison whose lungs can shatter glass and whose sexy thighs can squash the juice out of every hot blooded male.

No Sinner is centred around the leading lady Colleen Rennison whose name when inverted spells out No Sinner. trivia fans. She has a whiskey voice soaked in sin and despite the Janis Joplin comparisons, actually has a cleaner and clearer voice more inline with soul queens Aretha Franklin and Nina Simone who she emulates here with her arrangement of 'Work Song'.

The album kicks off with the easy flowing hard rocking jive of the title track 'Boo Hoo Hoo' which is reminiscent to rockabilly artist Imelda May's similarly titled 'Boom Boom' but with a grittier feeling.

'Love Is A Madness' is drenched in the smoky blues clubs of a bygone age when puffing on a cigar scored you a hot date while third track 'Runnin' steamrails down the track on high speed and will get your heart racing and yer feet stomping; a song made for Ike and Tina Turner if written forty years ago.

Just when you need a rest the album slows down and burns the blues where Rennison shows what she's made of as she puts her heart and soul into hard emotional ballads such as 'If Anything' and the Led Zep blues of 'That'd Be The Day' with some neat jangly guitar sounds from Eric Campbell who later uses some great fuzz tone expressions on a rollicking 'Devil On My Back'.

Just like the album cover which has Colleen Rennison backside gracing the front sleeve, this LP is spanking.

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.


Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.

Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.


MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
