Tim Loud – Stoke-On-Trent, England, United Kingdom. And, entering into the Folk-Punk and Anti-Folk arena we have the single premiere: Tim Loud – ‘Anyone Else But Me’. It’s about to get all introspective up in here! Not particularly funny silliness aside, we’re in fact here for a reason. That being the premiere of the single
Manchester Punk Festival. “Why Manchester Punk Festival 2020?” – Is the title of this written piece and the poster created by the festival that you can gaze and probably quite reasonably salivate over placed above is your answer! There’s no need for me to bore you away from your busy lives anymore, hooray! We can
Hell’s Ditch – Lincoln, England, United Kingdom. Cover photo: Steven Haddock – Photographer – Here. Supergroups. A concept that will likely outlive this stage of humanity and prosper in whatever is next. Enter, Hell’s Ditch and the ‘Vacant Hearts’ single. A band with some considerable pooled experience in the UK Punk and Alternative music scene
Dolorifics – Gothenburg, Sweden. The words – “Dolorifics – Welcome To Dolograd” are really very relevant if you’re an individual that partakes in the world of underground music. However, you knew that because you’re already present and waiting. Look how that worked out! How fortuitous for those lovely and relatively sized ears of yours! Digression
Sober Son – Bradford-On-Avon, England, United Kingdom. If you mosey on over – Here – you’ll find a band who ‘finally got their shit sorted‘. If you stay where you are now you’ll get to know Sober Son – Wonkey Eyed and proof that the band above have continued to organise their ‘shit‘. Sober Son’s first
No Lights – San Francisco, California, USA. The words – No Lights – Stay Awake/June Bug recently appeared in my cavernous inbox. The four-piece hail from San Francisco, Calfornia and through a concoction of Post-Punk, Alternative Rock, Post-Hardcore and emotive gloom, might just be the band you are looking for. The band’s 2018 debut Cassette even extends this
Deux Furieuses – London/Glasgow, United Kingdom. It’s been a while since I’ve written one of these introductory pieces designed to send your ears off toward sonic exploration. So, upon sifting through the cavernous inbox of what can only really be described collectively as hard-working people, I came across some chatter on Deux Furieuses. Shall we?
ESC Life – Zagreb, Croatia. The words ‘ESC Life’ – ‘Born To Be Mild’ are enough to intrigue anyone. Why? Well “ESC” is keyboard-speak for”escape” and with the world “life” in the immediate following, it’s more than likely that introspective songs about life are about to follow. That is effectively what happened upon pressing play
Last Reserves – St. Helens, England, United Kingdom. Last Reserves – ‘Pink Bits’, enters into a Punk scene focussed on either overtly heavy-Hardcore or fast, melodic and technically wonderous Skate Punk. The aforementioned branches on the ever-widening Punk tree are themselves ever-growing into a healthy scene and to follow them yields hours of sonic entertainment.
Sub Pacific – Isle Of Wight, England, United Kingdom. Sub Pacific and the ‘Can You’ single, what to say. The four-piece have had an excellent 2019 thus far, with gig-slots on and off their ancestral home of the Isle Of Wight and a chance to play the Islands premier music event, that being, the eclectic
