NOT TONIGHT AND THE HEADACHES – ‘If You Were Real You’d Do Your Own Stunts’ Review

NOT TONIGHT AND THE HEADACHES - 'If You Were Real You’d Do Your Own Stunts' Review

Well the bands tongue in cheek name alludes to their self-proclaimed influences and desire to resurrect the sound of mid 90’s pop punk. They achieve this admirably, sitting back and closing my eyes I could just imagine myself back in the mid 90’s, when I was discovering

From the opening power chords and explosive drumming of ‘Main Street’, it’s clear that Static Fiction are a band who have a great deal of talent. The track is a pop-punk classic in the spirit of My Chemical Romance or fellow Californians, AFI. It’s a great energetic

JUNO - 'Speed Won't Cut It' EP Review

Back in 2014 we reviewed Juno’s three track EP ‘Answers’ and we proclaimed “Three tracks of blistering punk rock music simply leave you wanting more as this is ‘proper, in your face’, stuff”. Fast forward to February 2016 and we get to hear their latest offerings. Our

This 5 track E.P. from Elmo and the Styx (EATS) follows on from their 2014 debut album, Happy. The band confirmed that the 5 songs are the ‘poppier’ recordings from a recent studio session where 16 songs were laid down for a new album in 2016. Opening

POOTIE – ‘Man Pig’ Review

POOTIE - 'Man Pig' Review

Since 2013 a 16-year-old multi-instrumentalist currently living in Florida in the US has been working at recording the album Man Pig. It’s an eclectic set of songs that betray the DIY nature of one person playing a number of parts and reminded me a little of the

DECONTROL – ‘Still Fucking Angry’ Review

DECONTROL - 'Still Fucking Angry' Review

Reformed in 2014, Decontrol have just released a brand new nine track album, ‘Still Fucking Angry’. The North-Eastern anarcho-punk band originated during the 90’s but after a break they have reformed even angrier and even more intent in getting their Class War stance across. It’s easy to

NEWTOWN NEUROTICS - 'Triumph Over Adversity' Review

Re-released by Violated Records 2015 I was lucky enough to see Newtown Neurotics perform live in the summer of this year. This was the first time I’d seen them and they had always been on my bucket list ever since I first heard ‘Beggars Can Be Choosers’
