Melbourne Post punks S:Bahn have a new record out. This is a Gang of Four crashing instruments and creating a glorious noise
Debut album from 2 piece Australian post punk hardcore band Chimers. Sounding like Mission of Burma playing Cult songs but with lods of nods to soaring sounds of Husker Du or Lungfish this is a record well worth chasing down
Lockdown sent everyone crazy. Electric gigs and performances dwindled as bands took to doing Lockdown sessions. The Melvins have never been a band to jump on any bandwagons over their 4 decade history and while their next record will be a stripped down version of the band it was done because it was time.
Continuing on with the excellent series of benefits is the latest Locked in the dressing Room comps. As the light is starting to emerge on live music once again it will be more difficult to remember how many venues and staff were left with no income. For most reading this blog live music was a pulse we clung on to. We looked forward to the camaraderie of gigs, the explosion of sound and sight on stage as our world revolved so much around music. That came to a halt as we re-assesed and some tried to recreate that experience online. But it was difficult. Live In the Dressing Room was created to show support to venues by the musicians.
Three is definitely a crowd for the death set, a power pop punk rock fuzzed up duo with synths, drum machines tunes and noise aplenty. Blistering and poppy third album
Punk rock, cut and paste, 40 issues and 2 decades on from its first issue Positive Creed is still coming out with great regularity
This is emo without the emotion, songs that are all meaningful to these three lads in Waterford but I'm sure any samll group of working class individuals may feel something similar as they grow up wondering what's going on. If the young Offenders moved across the border from cork and started a punk band this is what it would be like
Italian 4 peace screaming and emo-ing their way through these 6 songs. Full of intensity and noise and screams
Tunes just getting ready to break through. Beautiful sounds preparing us all for the freedom. Get your teeth into this vegan pop feast
The sound here is as good as any recording I’ve heard Steve play on. The feeling bleeds through the speakers. It’s not something that would win a song contest and I’m sure Steve is fine with that. It’s him stripped bare and raw.
