Fresh Picks: The Scutches.

The Scutches – Long Island, NewYork, USA. The Scutches are very much underground veterans hailing from Long Island, New York. 2017 has been somewhat of a reawakening for the band in many respects, as although it’s now been three years since they have released studio material, the band have now...

BRUCE – ‘My Latest Popstar Crush’.

BRUCE – Aarschot, Belgium. Cover photo credit: Marc Bauwens. Garage Punk, a genre that is both far more common than many are aware and a genre that is by far one of the most simplistically entertaining from the now broad and diverse Punk-Rock spectrum. Belgium has a vibrant music scene...

Capital Youth – ‘Lemonade’.

Capital Youth – Geneva, Switzerland. Garage Rock and Garage Punk are styles of music you don’t hear too much said about in todays contemporary mainstream and underground scenes. The bands exist, quite obviously so but are often lost on the ears of those who simply dismiss it as loud, abrasive,...

Hanzo – The Debut Self-Titled.

Hanzo – Rugby, England, United Kingdom. Hanzo’s self titled EP fell into my lap, presented to me as a Garage Rock trio that dishes out sounds drawn in from Rocka, Psycho, and other various billies as well as Surf Rock. Straight from the cover of their self-titled, you’re assaulted with...

Horrible – ‘But Is It Even Music, Really?’ In Review.

Horrible – Chicago, Illinois, USA. ‘Two songs about wars, two songs about sleazy youth, two songs from a plot about aliens made of sound coming to earth.’ Horrible are the Chicago answer to the nostalgic raucous bliss of the 80’s Indie Rock circuit. Hard rocking, melodic and undeniably chaotically beautiful,...

Dot Dash… The “Lifer” Band Of DC…

Dot Dash – Washington DC, USA. Photo credit: – J Scott Watson. With all the information, history and back catalogues this band have culminated in their individual pasts, I would be sat at this desk (of sorts) for weeks upon end and would likely produce volumes upon volumes with side...

Deathsticks and Their Haunting Garage Of Distorted Noise.

Deathsticks – Whitby, Ontario, Canada. I’ll try to keep this short. Whitby based Deathsticks are a very obscure and dirty sounding duo that I honestly have no idea about whether they are a serious effort or not and I’m not even sure if I mean that as a negative criticism. They remind...
