War With The Newts – The ‘Dead Eyes’ EP.

War The With Newts – Berlin, Germany. War With The Newts latest release, Dead Eyes, sludges out rough in ridiculous chaotic fashion from start to finish. Hailing from Berlin, Germany, these Punks navigate the sea of punk-ness well while still presenting subtle originalities. The spastic opener ‘Megalodon’ slams into life with sloppy...

Crimson Star and The ‘Bay View’ EP – January 2018.

Crimson Star – Birmingham, England, United Kingdom. Birmingham is a big place, a very big place, a place that I personally spent a gratuitous amount of money in while touring its record shops recently. Now, this obviously gives me good reason to go back but perhaps there could be more...

Damned Implant and Their ‘Dirt Rock’.

Damned Implant – St. Helens, England, United Kingdom. Soaked in dark, damp but oh so inviting dirty Blues Rock, Damned Implant have recently released a politically charged two-piece assault on the current order of things. The band hail from St. Helens and after a long absence from creating music have...

The English Language – ‘Mother Tongue’.

The English Language – Portland, Oregon, USA. Mother Tongue, the latest album from Portland based The English Language not only boasts some gross but pretty rad artwork, it also holds twelve full-length tracks oozing with trippy beats culminating a Grunge meets Psychobilly meets Punk mess! Profession term that. Opening the...

Low Sun – ‘Reservoir Of Impermanent Bliss’.

Low Sun – Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Canada is not the warmest of places a lot of the time and that is something that Toronto two-piece Low Sun a know all to well. What was supposed to be a idyllic winter retreat in a family cottage to record their first full-length...

Sunderfeet – ‘Nightmare For Myself’.

Sunderfeet – Strasbourg, France. Now, that might not be the best album cover artwork you’ve seen this week but it being from a band that describe themselves as a ‘Stoner-Grunge-Power-Trio’, you suddenly let it off the hook and even condone it. It’s always better not to be boring after all. Nightmare For...

Fresh Picks: Kill The Drama Queen.

Kill The Drama Queen – Luxembourg/France/Belgium. Fresh Picks are designed to give readers all the reasons they will need to indulge in whatever facet of underground music we come across, a short – ish – take on a band or artist to entice the prospective listener with enough name-drops, genre-tags...

Quit Yr Job At The Nest – 19/10/17: A Showcase.

The Nest – Bath, England, United Kingdom. Quit Yr Job Records are another one of those fledgling labels slowly but surely making their way around the monotonous routine of modern life in order to collect bands. Collecting said bands is seemingly a slow process but with the output this little...

Manhattan Project – ‘Pistol Head // Deep In The Ground’.

Manhattan Project – Leeds, England, United Kingdom. Photo credit (above): Vision Photography. From what I can gather from my seat in the south-west, the music scene in Leeds is vibrant and alive and likely various other cliche terms used in short and snappy newspaper reviews. In short and in less...
