Introducing >>> Desmerelda

Hailing from Bromley in Kent, Desmerelda have just released an excellent new single titled Welcome to the Establishment (which could not really be a more topical title given the astonishing arrogance and contempt for the public displayed by the country’s real PM Dominic Cummings.) Anyway, at least we have this furious, fizzing slab of raw, unbridled punk rock to jump around to – it sits … Continue reading Introducing >>> Desmerelda

IDLES – Mr. Motivator

IDLES have shared a brilliant, battering ram of a new track Mr. Motivator – the first preview of their highly anticipated third LP due out later this year. The song doubles down on the (self-admitted) sloganeering and social commentary that’s become the band’s signature, yet here more than ever they’re able to take clichés and turn them into music that’s deeply complex and brutally relevant. … Continue reading IDLES – Mr. Motivator

Like A Motorcycle – Wide Awake & Idols

Four-piece Like A Motorcycle hail from Halifax, Nova Scotia and have a new album, Dead Broke, out soon. Wide Awake is the fizzing, urgent second single from it, about waking up between a past stained with unhealthy choices and a future of bleak dystopian uncertainty. It follows the sub-two minute blast of lead single Idols, a savage, old school punk anthem critiquing those we blindly … Continue reading Like A Motorcycle – Wide Awake & Idols

Introducing >>> The Imbeciles

The Imbeciles are new to us, but we’re loving the 73 second gem that is One Hand Tommy, and the accompanying surreal animated video featuring a child trapped in a dystopian landscape of nuclear annihilation with only a giant killer snake for company. It comes from the band’s self-titled debut album – thirteen sub-two minute imploding songs of delirious punk with blood curdling vocals, disarticulated fretwork … Continue reading Introducing >>> The Imbeciles

The Bobby Lees – Drive

The Bobby Lees are a bone-shaking garage rock band out of Woodstock, NY. Their new record Skin Suit was produced by underground punk legend Jon Spencer of the Blues Explosion and will be released on Alive Naturalsound Records on the 17th July. Mixing classic garage-punk with raw and emotive storytelling, this is their socially distanced video for the raucous Drive.   Continue reading The Bobby Lees – Drive

Something For The Weekend…

Lockdown has given us an opportunity to get a little more up to date with our posts and to catch up, a little, with some of the many, many tunes that come our way. Given it is Friday and a Bank Holiday here in the UK, we’ve rounded up a few tunes that we would have liked to have given a bit more time and … Continue reading Something For The Weekend…
