FLAGPOLERS/Bar Tape – Split EP

FLAGPOLERS/Bar Tape – Dublin/Vancouver, Ireland/Canada Music is ubiquitous. Is that an excuse unto why I missed the FLAGPOLERS/Bar Tape and their split EP the first time around? Perhaps, but it’s still a true-enough statement nonetheless. Bandcamp is a wonderful place of discovery and split releases a staple in the Punk music diet. Bar Tape hail

The Waiting Game – Belgium Admittedly I am a little late to the party with this one but with the age-old maxim that music never really dies I feel I am excused. The Waiting Game hail from Belgium and sit as veterans of their local Punk scenes plying their collective experience and amalgamating it into

Clay Lake – ‘The Manly Toughness Trophy’.

Clay Lake – Stoke, England, United Kingdom. Emo was/is/always will be such a strange phenomenon and talking point within the music scene.

The genre has many forms and stylistics with some breakneck and fast and others simply not. Sometimes it’s a little on the politically serious side and others

‘Never Better’ and Other Stories: Phil From the Burnt Tapes.

Burnt Tapes – London, England, United Kingdom. It’s safe to say that London four-piece the Burnt Tapes have made quite the impression these past few years with their self-branded “regret punk” – that being, if you’re unaware that is, their own take on contemporary melodic and emotive Punk-Rock. The band’s releases to date have gained

Burnt Tapes – London, England, United Kingdom Three Greeks and an Englishman walked into a Bar by the name of London and formed not an uninventive joke or near banal (un)humorous remark but rather a Punk-Rock band, one that has seen said venture through to success and notoriety via their own spin on gruff, gritty
