Introducing: Austerity

/////

Austerity – Brighton, England, United Kingdom Introducing Austerity. Hmmm, well isn’t that a profundity rich topic in this age of the exponentially increasing Punk music cornucopia.

Thysen and ‘Into The Water’ // ‘No Rest’

///

Thysen – Leeds, England, United Kingdom Post-Punk is certifiably one of those often attributed to its original format and then disregarded.

Adam Carpenter – The ‘Obliterate/Ugly’ EP

///

Adam Carpenter – Manchester, England, United Kingdom This review was written by Community Contributor, Alex Blanchard. Welsh Folk-Punk act Adam Carpenter (currently residing in Manchester) by his own admission wears his ‘heart firmly sewn to his sleeve‘. After having spent some time with his latest EP I can confirm this common and potentially over-used statement

David Delinquent and ‘You’re So Boring You Make Me Wanna Die’

///

David Delinquent – Dundee, Scotland, United Kingdom There is a lot to be said for solo-releases from Punk-vocalists. David Delinquent and You’re So Boring You Make Me Wanna Die enter into this fray.
