DEATHSEX BLOODBATH – ‘Golden Showers’ Review

DEATHSEX BLOODBATH - 'Golden Showers' Review

Deathsex Bloodbath are a glam-punk sleaze-rock band from Coventry who make no apologies for being who they are. Deathsex are in a reality of their own and if you allow yourself to let go of your senses, it’s quite endearing. They are as absurd as they are

CASH REGISTERS - 'Context Demos' Review

Clocking in with 18 songs, New York City’s The Cash Registers album is a breathtaking listen. Most songs are under two minutes in length and seven are under a minute with the classic Short Attention Span hitting just four seconds on the stopwatch. “Kojack” layers some punk

ANTI-FLAG - 'American Spring' Review

Pin back your ears, open up your eyes, get out your flag with the circled ‘A’ and listen to the latest from Pittsburgh’s finest, Anti-Flag. Although they have been at this for over 20 years, they have just released a punk classic and, for me, the best

THE LIGAMENTS – ‘Digital [EP]’ Review

THE LIGAMENTS - 'Digital [EP]' Review

London-based trio Ligaments play a fast, rousing style of punk rock that brilliantly blends the melody with the noise. Hot on the heels of February’s raw and ambitious ‘Eat Pizza’ comes a self-titled EP that is pleasantly more refined and matures their sparkling intensity. Ligaments power through

THE FALL – ‘Sub-Lingual Tablet’ Review

THE FALL - 'Sub-Lingual Tablet' Review

Mark E. Smith and his latest merry band have released the 31st studio album from The Fall (I’ve lost count of the live albums!) and, after the rather tepid 30th effort, ‘Erstatz’, this one is pretty darn good. There are some folks in Punkonline towers who find

THE MEMBRANES – ‘Dark Matter/Dark Energy’ Review

If punk music was a fine wine then The Membranes have certainly improved with age. Their first album since 1989, you can imagine their followers visiting the cellar year after year asking if it’s ready yet. However, patience is the key because the album release on June
