DUNT – ‘Between Punk Rock and a Hard Place’ Review

DUNT - 'Between Punk Rock and a Hard Place' Review

DUNT are here for your protection, with a manifesto of energetic live shows, wry humour and blunt force musical trauma to the skull, with their observation of everyday bullshit, great melodies and choppy riffs. Their songs will become so embedded into your brains, you will be punching

MOON WORSHIP – ‘Book the Pops’ Review

MOON WORSHIP - 'Book the Pops' Review

From the city of Troy in the Capital District of New York, Moon Worship play a noisy, distressed kind of rock played through a dreary ambience. Their debut EP, ‘Book The Pops’, is experimental and earnest, and across the thirty seamless minutes builds a unwavering atmosphere of

NO TIME – ‘You’ll Get Yours’ Review

NO TIME - 'You'll Get Yours' Review

This was the first album out of a package of three we recently received from our friends at Rebellion Records and it’s a corker of a street punk/Oi release. Opening with Y.W.B.M. – “You Won’t Be Missed” – a chunky, aggressive song with throaty vocals that compliment

Deux Furieuses are a London/Glasgow duo Ros Cairney (guitar and vocals) and Vas Antoniadou (drums and vocals). Their debut album ’Tracks of Wire’ is produced by Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey’s drummer and arranger) and comparisons to Harvey are fair. Are we Sexy Enough? Is a brilliant opening song

DISCHARGE – ‘End of Days’ Review

DISCHARGE - 'End of Days' Review

Back in 1980 I boarded a clapped out mini-bus with 14 other punks to attend a gig in Derby (The Assembly Rooms I think?) headlined by Discharge and supported by Disorder amongst others. The early Discharge singles had taken the sounds of the Clash, Sex Pistols and

U.S. NERO - 'Free Thinker' Review

In the spirit of Captain Beefheart, Flipper and The Fall, U.S. Nero open their new album with I’m a Commodity, a mash up of spoken word, screamed vocals and some experimental noise pop backing. The use of radio samples and different time shifts is prevalent throughout the
