May Have Missed Volume 2

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

The Expanse Of The Internet “May Have Missed Volume 2” 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,

The New America – ‘Going To The Races (Dressed Like A Racist)’

///

The New America – Bristol, England, United Kingdom The beauty of Bristol’s musical output is its eclectic variety. The New America and ‘Going To The Races (Dressed Like A Racist)’ slide into a bonafide placement amongst this variation. The key point here is the unpredictable nature of how this variety can manifest itself amongst the

LASSITERS and Their Self-Titled

////

LASSITERS – London, England, United Kingdom The words “LASSITERS and Their Self-Titled” have (not particularly gracefully) graced Ear Nutrition before. This was back in the now near-mythical, comparatively utopian (but not really) time of 2018 where things were still decidedly shit, but less so. This was a time where their now Demo debut EP was

Downard and Their ‘Permanent Damage’

//

Downard – Bristol, England, United Kingdom Downard and their Permanent Damage are yet another part of my most recent catchphrase. The great 2020 catch up! Now, don’t fret, this isn’t some ill-fated trip down memory lane or some needless profundity denoting to generic trite. No, it’s my questionable attempt, failure and then follow-up attempt to again

TANKENGINE – ‘TANKENGINE TAKENGINE’

///

TANKENGINE – Newcastle, England, United Kingdom TANKENGINE – TANKENGINE TAKENGINE is a collection of words denoting to the cliché (but apt) description of the words “powerhouse trio”. In fact, couple those very words with a cacophony of eerily inviting groove, playful Noise Rock “why nots” and complicated, spasmodic Post-Hardcore energy and it actually becomes a

Haest and ‘Anomie’

////

Haest – Hastings, England, United Kingdom Haest and Anomie entered into 2020 via TNSrecords. The Manchester label is one synonymous with UK Hardcore Punk for the most part but is also known to foray into other aspects of the scene. This is where Hastings‘ Haest come in. The band’s base in Hardcore Punk is certifiable

Dutch – ‘No Dove No Covenant’

//

Dutch – Birmingham, England, United Kingdom I’ve said this before, but whenever a release is monikered as Post-Hardcore my ears twitch. This was the case when Dutch and their debut EP No Dove No Covenant literarily materialised anyway. Why? Well, of all the countless derivatives and further derivatives of said derivatives that Punk music fostered, I

MPF 2020 and Other Tall Tales: Ian ‘Tree’ Robinson

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

Manchester Punk Festival “MPF 2020 and Other Tall Tales: Ian ‘Tree’ Robinson” is relevant to the question above. A question that is in its sixth iteration of annual linger. MPF 2020 is indeed fast approaching, that much is true but it simultaneously seems to be taking its sweet and possibly sentient time. As much as

THVS – ‘Fevers’

///

THVS – Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom Loud, a word perhaps best used to preliminarily describe the following words denoting to both a band and a release: THVS – Fevers. Enough to draw you in? I hope so. THVS have been abrasively and violently deconstructing the sound barrier since 2014, with an accosting mix and
