The Crash Mats – ’69 Peruvian Panpipe Classics’.

The Crash Mats – Oldham, England, United Kingdom. For our previous work on the band – Click Here. The Crash Mats are from Oldham and they play Ska-infused Punk. The band also don’t take themselves seriously, at all in fact. Strong English Punk-Rock merges with old-school Ska, Hardcore Punk and general abandon...

The Phosphorus Bombs – ‘Cancers’.

The Phosphorus Bombs – Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Australian Punk-Rock music isn’t half bad and in this case Sydney and its scene have something for you. Enter The Phosphorus Bombs. The band are very much sat (well, not really) somewhere between 80’s Hardcore Punk and its eventual descendent Skate...

Dead Town Nothing: An Update.

Dead Town Nothing – Isle Of Wight, England, United Kingdom. Dead Town Nothing have been quiet for quite some time now. The band were set for a follow up to the mini-album Consequences and its charged Metallic Hardcore in 2016 but sadly, said EP that was to be entitled Leeches never materialised. Why? Well, life. That...

Bash Brothers and Their ‘Life Lessons’.

Bash Brothers – Eksjö, Sweden. The moment I saw this request in our inbox, I found myself transfixed, determined and reaching for my “objective hat”. Why? Well in truth, any self respecting modern Punk fan can’t possibly ignore anything in the way of Punk-Rock from the country of Sweden, the country...

Stupid Karate – The ‘Punk Is A Free Pricing Corpse’ EP.

Stupid Karate – Lille, France. Stupid Karate have returned with their second EP, the comically dark titled Punk Is A Free Pricing Corpse. The band’s visceral break-neck Hardcore Punk is nothing but energetic. Imagine, you’ve had a hard week at work and friend drags you to a Punk show, you’re not adverse...

Bogans and The ‘Uno Mas!’ EP.

Bogans – Wrexham, Wales, United Kingdom. The term Bogan is actually one used for the Australian equivalent of a British Chav or an American hick but that’s just a unrelated fact designed to break the worded ice of this review and I think it went quite well. Bogans in this...

Incisions and The ‘Quit Now’ EP.

Incisions – Manchester, England, United Kingdom. For our previous work on the band – Click Here. Photography credit: Phukin Photo’s By Scott Bradley – Click Here. Incisions are relatively new to the Manchester Punk game which makes them a perfect addition to local label Horn & Hoof Records. The band are...

Despereaux and The ‘Cursed’ EP.

Despereaux – Oslo, Norway. Upon reading that Despereaux hailed from Norway, I expected heavy and heavy was what I indeed received but in a manner that far out-weighed the band selling themselves as simply a Hardcore band. Cursed is their third release in total and see’s the band play with their...
