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 – Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Force Fed is the second release from another one of contemporary Punks’ Ramones enthusiasts, Phoenix, Arizona three-piece – The Mental Code.

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...

An MF Exclusive Premiere: SPLURGE and Their ‘Mood Swings’.

SPLURGE – London/Brighton, England, United Kingdom. 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...
