Tío Rico and The Forthcoming ‘Business and Pleasure’ EP.

Tío Rico – Manchester, England, United Kingdom. Manchester based Punk label Horn & Hoof Records is steadily growing. MF has been lucky enough to tag along for the ride for much of this and hopefully time permitting will continue to do so. Tío Rico counts label operator Scott Bradley within...

Scornthroats and The ‘Misfortune’ LP.

Scornthroats – Cagliari, Italy. Scornthroats, formally Rise After Defeat, have been releasing music since 2011. Music that is perhaps only really best described as utterly visceral organised chaos, that is barely confined within an amalgamation of Hardcore Punk, Crust Punk and riffs that touch upon the not so distant shores...

Johnny West Is Missing – The ‘Carp Dime’ EP.

Johnny West Is Missing – Manchester, England, United Kingdom. Johnny West is missing on a few, but is still here overall on the strong release of Carp Dime. This 4 track EP slops out in drunk-Punk fashion with thick gritty guitar and moaning Northern English laced vocals. What these boys...

Set Before Us and The ‘Enigmas’ EP.

Jack The Envious – The ‘Begging For More’ Single.

Jack The Envious – London, England, United Kingdom. Jack is very envious but is also in a band, a band that as a collective produces organised collections of cohesive sound known as songs that sit somewhere between early 2000’s Post-Hardcore, dark-sounding contemporary Pop-Punk and jagged Metalcore orientated riffage. The band...

The Mental Code – ‘Force Fed’.

The Mental Code – Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Force Fed is the second release from another one of contemporary Punks’ Ramones enthusiasts, Phoenix, Arizona three-piece – The Mental Code. From start to finish you are indeed force fed a very unashamedly basic, endearing and not remotely serious blend of “ramonescore” that touches...
