Ghost of The Avalanche

Ghost Of The Avalanche – Bath/Bristol, England, United Kingdom. Ghost Of The Avalanche. Four words that are well-known to many around the Bath, Bristol and southwest UK Punk scene. The band’s two-piece formula of bass-guitar and drums produced four mainline releases of Garage Rock infused and melodically pop-ridden vintage Hardcore Punk; known as much for

Brasher

Brasher –  Bristol, England, United Kingdom. Here we are then, another early stream: Brasher -‘Two Foot Mullet’. Another new collection of faces based in the Bristol wing of the small yet tenaciously ubiquitous south-west England Punk scene. Having lived in this part of the world for nearly a decade myself, the coming and the going

Introducing: Kamino and Their Colossal Sounds.

Kamino

Kamino – Bristol, England, United Kingdom. Introducing Kamino and their colossal sounds is easiest via a statement I utter regularly and one that is truer each time it is said. Bristol is perhaps one of the most eclectic, progressive, diverse and important cities in the UK regarding underground music. The south-west institution is rife with

The Run Up – ‘Portraits’ + ‘In Motion’ Pre-Order.

////

The Run Up – Bristol – England, United Kingdom. Up until the release of the new single ‘Portraits’, to say that The Run Up have had an excellent time since their first audible and widely available inception would be an overtly gratuitous understatement. The Bristol five-piece and their anchored, gruff and sonically cumbersome, melodic Punk-Rock

Alkahest – Bristol, England, United Kingdom. Cover photo credit: Max Macaulay. Before I tell you who this band are, know that you are getting this release an entire week prior to its general release.  It’s safe to say and perfectly adequate as an introductory statement that the band/project/collective and sometimes elusive sonic unit that is

Hiver – ‘What Could Be’.

/////

Hiver – Bristol, England, United Kingdom. Whenever I see the excerpt or beginning of a message or email and the city of Bristol is mentioned I feel an instant curiosity and sense of excitement. This is partially because of my living quarters being not too far from the city but also because whenever I see

Blank Atlas – ‘Crush’ (Single).

////

Blank Atlas – Bristol, England, United Kingdom. Alternative Rock needs another heavy hitter up on the big time and perhaps Bristol three-piece Blank Atlas could be it. Think of the days when Feeder and Ash had the hegemonic dominance on the scene and then pair that with how the diverse genre has evolved and taken

Introducing: RXPTRS.

/////

RXPTRS – South West England, United Kingdom. New bands are always an exciting prospect, especially when from the initial outset they display an interesting sound with the potential to expand and define. The south west/Bristol’s own RXPTRS fit this criteria rather well and have gone from strength to strength over the past few months, but

Lesser Know Character – ‘No Equal Exchange’ (01/05/19) (Review + EP Stream).

//////

Lesser Known Character – Bristol, England, United Kingdom. A lot can be said about the Bristol Punk scene. From Skate Punk to Indie-Punk and everything in between, the scene is self-sufficient and arguably really very ubiquitous. A lot can be said about Lesser Known Character, whether it being that we’ve been waiting nearly three years

Beefywink – ‘Chicken Little’ (Single) (31/03/19).

////

Beefywink – Bristol, England, United Kingdom. One of the excellent things about music in and around the city of Bristol is how versatile and all encompassing the locales bands are. Whether it’s Indie, Punk, Post-Punk, Grunge or something simply guitar-driven at the base of it and adaptable, you can’t argue with the amount of variety
