Introducing >>> Mrs. Piss

Mrs. Piss is an excellently named new collaboration between Chelsea Wolfe and Jess Gowrie. Drawing on their collective rock, metal, and industrial influences, the project began while the two were touring around together during Wolfe’s Hiss Spun album in 2017. They’ve announced details of their debut, Self-Surgery, which sees its release on the 29th May on Sargent House, and have shared two of its singles, … Continue reading Introducing >>> Mrs. Piss

Introducing >>> NRVS

Bad Taste is the eye-popping debut from London-based anonymous dystopian-punk duo NRVS. Backed with the equally nihilistic The Teeth I Always Wanted, their music carries a blistering, in-your-face, anti-establishment quality that syphons perfectly through their distinct DIY punk sensibilities. Stream both below – like being put through a sonic meat grinder. In a good way.     Continue reading Introducing >>> NRVS

Clwb Fuzz – No Heaven

Cardiff’s post punk / grunge four piece Clwb Fuzz are a new discovery for us – we were trawling back through some old emails listening to stuff we’d not had a chance to check out and were very struck by the brooding intensity and menace of recently released single No Heaven, their first release on Libertino Records. Built on a darkly brooding bass line, purposive motorik … Continue reading Clwb Fuzz – No Heaven

Mad Mackerel Recommends… Nothingheads

Scuzzy garage-punk London four-piece Nothingheads have released their ferocious new single Cockroach 2051. The unhinged and epically heavy track follows recent release Topsy, and recalls the likes of The Jesus Lizard and The Membranes. The band tell us that “the idea for Cockroach 2051 all came from a film called The Very Brief Life of an Ember. A load of street kids takeover Manila in … Continue reading Mad Mackerel Recommends… Nothingheads

JOHN – Future Thinker

It’s been out for a couple of months I think, but heard this on 6Music this afternoon and it was one marvellously unholy racket of industrial jackhammer punk set against contrasting deadpan vocals. It’s called Future Thinker by London duo JOHN, and comes from their upcoming album Out Here On The Fringes. Top tune. Order the album here. Check out their Bandcamp page here.   Continue reading JOHN – Future Thinker

Meatraffle – The Day The Earth Stood Still

Famed for their wall of sound, and notoriously difficult to label (they themselves describe their music as “psychedelic, socialist, utopian, death raga, erroneous funk, trapdoor jazz, bastard muzak“), the origins of Meatraffle are lost in obscurity although it has been said that they came about as the result of a drunken afternoon shared by Clams Baker and Zsa Zsa Sapien in a South London Wetherspoon … Continue reading Meatraffle – The Day The Earth Stood Still
