All Fall Down and ‘Take Me Back’

//

All Fall Down – Peterborough, England, United Kingdom With all Punk’s fantastic sonic vibrancy and genre-crossing tendencies, All Fall Down and ‘Take Me Back’ enter into the fold via the seemingly inexhaustible fuel source that is melodic Punk-Rock. The very medium itself has also come along way. The ’90s blueprint has merged, morphed, infused and

Making Friends and ‘BONK!’ (19/02/21)

///

Making Friends – Brighton, England, United Kingdom So here we are! Making Friends and BONK!, something that could easily pertain to a statement of intent as much as it could the continuation of this band’s story. However, as it’s before 9 pm (at the time of these typed-words) and there are little ears about perhaps the latter

Making Friends – ‘BONK’ // ‘USELESS’

///

Making Friends – Brighton, England, United Kingdom ’90s style Skate Punk. Will it ever cease its indomitable advance?

Introducing: Crystal Axis

Crystal Axis – Nairobi, Kenya Introducing Crystal Axis is something I am admittedly late at doing. That said, within the underground music-verse, it is never too late to both support and discover something new. Punk for the most part, is transcending race, culture, gender, religion and geography more so than ever. That’s not to say

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
