Discover A Fire and ‘A Calculated Risk’ (12/02/21)

///

Discover A Fire – Norfolk, England, United Kingdom Discover A Fire and ‘A Calculated Risk‘ are a series of words that contextually speaking, work rather well. However, the Norfolk band have not named their latest in any real prospective worry or with any trepidations about their new union with Disconnect Disconnect Records, so there is no need to

May Have Missed Volume 3

/////////////

The Expanse Of The Internet “May Have Missed Volume 3” is an attempt to counter the volume of requests I receive in the various Ear Nutrition inboxes as I type away. The venture of EN, when it boils down to the barebones of itself, is a spare-time hobby. I try to do what I can,

Ghosts Of Westbeach and ‘Dissolution’

///

Ghosts Of Westbeach / Germany / United Kingdom / USA The internet, for all its infinite suck-holes of ridiculousness, has its uses. Ghosts Of Westbeach and ‘Dissolution’, the first being a transatlantic band and the latter their second single, are relevant here. To the latter more positive aspect of that statement, obviously. The band are

GRUNK – ‘Unnecessary Hate Boner’

/////

GRUNK – Rugby, England, United Kingdom “GRUNK and Unnecessary Hate Boner” is a series of words that I hadn’t expected to utter yet alone write down so others can. However, for whatever reason, I am attracted to both dirge and humorously monikered bands and music so here we are. GRUNK hail from Rubgy and that very

SENECA and ‘Exhale, Sigher’

/////

SENECA – Devon, England, United Kingdom SENECA and ‘Exhale, Sigher’ fit into an interesting time within the underground music-verse. The ability to churn-out releases and even write and practice has been severely inhibited these past twelve-plus months and yet, the music scene has remained indomitable by a hairsbreadth. 2020 saw a tirade of ironic releases

Billy No Mates and ‘S.F. Sourdough’ (29/01/21)

///

Billy No Mates – Snuffington Manor, USA, This Time Contrary to popular belief, the title of Billy No Mates and S.F. Sourdough is really quite misleading. Billy actually has quite a few mates you know. In the past, his release history has enlisted friends from across the UK Punk scene and as afar afoot as

Those Fucking Snowflakes – ‘Everything Is Absolutely Fkkkkkkd’ (22/01/21)

////

Those Fucking Snowflakes – Blackpool, England, United Kingdom “Those Fucking Snowflakes and Everything Is Absolutely Fkkkkkkd” is an eyecatching title for a band and their debut. These very words, considering the rhetoric and terminology used, could actually be interpreted to be quite problematic and regressive. Thankfully, this really isn’t the case, for Those Fucking Snowflakes
