The boys from London Metallers Collapse are forever looking at ways to keep themselves entertained and always have a video camera at hand to keep their fans up to date, and this month is no exception as they release their latest video diary.

It does feature some stunning live performance of them touring with Anthrax, Revoker and Butcher Babies, but it's the rest of the video that makes these boys one of the most loved bands on the circuit here at HQ.

Broken down fans, spectacular dancing and facing up to drinking problems keep the boys entertained during seven hour delays and ingenious ways of keeping fit on the road using roadside objects add to the entertainment, but I personally think Briiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiie makes it well worth taking six minutes out of your day to watch.

To find out more about these boys, head over to and if you ever meet them on the street, give them a pork pie and they'll love you long time.



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
