Diploma and ‘The Cost Of Clarity’ Enroute and In Depth.

Diploma – Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. If you’ve ever had anything to do with the Melbourne Punk music scene then you will know how daunting it can be in size, cohesion and general shock and awe. It was something during my six months in the city I found sadly only limited...

SPLURGE, a word that conjures images of Bugsy Malone and bright colours exploding from the muzzle of a Tommy or ‘Splurge’ gun if you remember that classic. However, the word SPLURGE also has a more contemporary standing and that would be in the form...

LATTE+ – ‘Stitches’.

LATTE+ – Empoli, Italy. For our previous work on the band – Click Here. One thing I came to find with LATTE+ is their incredulous emulation of the Ramones. They know, we know, every Tom, Dick and Punk Rocker knows its been done before. The band are well aware, well aware of...

Own Your Life and The Debut Self-Titled.

Own Your Life – St. Neots, England, United Kingdom. Sometimes, just sometimes you need external anger in order to soothe your own. You need the cathartic release of others to help assist or act as the catalyst of your own. This exactly how I felt after pressing play on the...

Indigo Rose – The ‘Shiver’ Single.

Indigo Rose – Manchester, England, United Kingdom.

Now, those may...
