Introducing: Cuffs

///

Cuffs – Bristol, England, United Kingdom Introducing Cuffs is something I have been meaning to get done (successfully, not in a Brexit-way because fuck that shit) for quite some time now. I shan’t bore you with some grandiose reasoning unto why because it can easily be encapsulated with the word “time”. However, the Bristol four-piece

Introducing: Crum!

Crum! – London, England, United Kingdom And so, introducing Crum! How to go about it? Well, firstly the noisey not so little three-piece hail from London-town and that should at least go as afar as to suggest that their “sound”, considering the precursor description of “noisey”, could be anything. It indeed could be anything but

///

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.

Introducing: Austerity

Austerity – Brighton, England, United Kingdom Introducing Austerity. Hmmm, well isn’t that a profundity rich topic in this age of the exponentially increasing Punk music cornucopia.

////

GagReflex – Cheltenham, England, United Kingdom The bass and drums approach to Punk music is one more common than you’d think.

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

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.
