Greetings from Don Powell’s Occasional Flames,

 

The brand new album  “Just My Cup Of Tea” is now released… check out the reviews below and click here to buy.

CLASSIC ROCK REVIEW : AUGUST 2021

“As the sharply witted lyrics ( Monochrome Set via Smiths – era Morrisey ) play out, it’s easy to forget that it’s Slade’s drummer’s name above the door, but this is excellent stuff. Wry, midlife crisis musings that raise an actual smile”  8 /10

 

VIVE LE ROCK REVIEW : AUGUST 2021

“As you’d expect with  anything associated with Slade, the album lives up to all expectations with a collection of hard hitting good time rock and roll. There is a Beatles influence at work and the lyrics are self reverential with a lot of humour” 8/10
