Ben Diesel and The ‘We’ve Always Partied’ EP.

Ben Diesel – St. Louis, Missouri, USA. ‘Remember when Pop-Punk was fun? Ben Diesel remembers.’ This was one of those reviews where I hadn’t the foggiest of ideas what I would behold. Once I had beheld the EP in question, I found myself completely dumfounded. Sounding like a combination of...

SickOnes, In Tribute and Redux.

SickOnes – South West, England, United Kingdom. For our previous work on the band – Click Here. As far as relatively unused words go in the English language, “Redux” is certainly one that I enjoy. Now the relevance of that pointless piece of information regarding the contents of my vocabulary,...
