Eye Tape Records – New Haven/Waterbury, Connecticut, USA. The internet is a wonderful place that is full of as much rubbish as it is beneficial or relevant and useful material and when it comes to music, that is especially true. We and undoubtedly yourselves have seen a exponential rise in...

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...

Trashed Ambulance – ‘Blurry Thoughts’ In Review.

Trashed Ambulance – Red Dear, Alberta, Canada. Punk music is going through something of a resurgence across it’s broad spectrum. The genre’s original trailblazers are still revered and rightly so, but what we are seeing now is huge boost in the scene’s output, sitting closer to the late 80’s and 90’s...
