Shoegaze Legends RIDE Return With New Electrifying Stroke – Here’s… ‘CHARM ASSAULT’


‘Charm Assault’ by RIDE


British shoegaze legends RIDE returned two years ago, after breaking up in 1996, for a series of live shows and started to work on a new album afterwards. No release date is announced yet but it’ll sound “Equal parts Motörhead and William Basinski” joked the band while recording. Anyway here’s their first new song in more than twenty years. CHARM ASSAULT is a solid pulsating cracker colored with glimmering guitars, driven by pounding drums and spiced with an energetic chorus. Ride is totally back and they bloody rock!

COSMONAUTS Build Wall-Of-Mind-Bending-Psych-Sound in Belgium…


COSMONAUTS – Café Charlatan – Ghent, Belgium – 19 February 2017


Californian quartet COSMONAUTS released their fourth album last summer, titled A-OK! One of the best 2016 long-players in my book. More versatile than their previous work. From amplified pop punk to swirling psychedelia. A soundtrack for different moods. What the hell! Let the music do the talking…

Last Sunday they played my hometown Ghent (Belgium) in a packed club, as part of their European tour. Live the band create a wall-of-mind-bending-psych-sound. A nasty, yet melodic melting pot of noise à la The Jesus and Mary Chain used to fabricate in the 90s. Even gripping, intimate ballad ‘Party At Sunday’ from the new album got a mountain-of-decibels treatment. But, unfortunately, most of the time the specific color and spirit of each of the songs got lost in the band’s battle with the cracking PA. This time louder
didn’t mean better.

The Lunatics Are Ready To Take Over The Asylum – Here’s ELEFANT With New Track… MUMBO JUMBO

Havoc that thrills us in a way we want to scream out loud…


The lunatics of Belgian metallic Kraut motherrockers ELEFANT are back with a new doom boom. On MUMBO JUMBO their funky punky sludge machine roars more accessible than before thanks to some sticky Devo-esque guitar parts & wacko keyboards. Beware, ladies and gents, as I already warned you before these weirdos just want to seduce us all with their mind-twisting thunder as their ultimate goal is to take over this giant asylum, called Mother Earth and to make us dance exactly like them, like a bunch of doped fruitcakes…

3/ ‘Art Prostitute’ by MANKIND (Stockholm, Sweden)
Nasty slo-mo garage rock drones while we hear the twisted story of a white wig prostitute. B-side of this new single is a wicked cover of Lou Reed‘s Waiting For My Man. Listen here

4/ ‘The Mound’ by GIRLS IN SYNTHESIS (London, UK)
They say: “We’re an obtuse punk trio, formed to aurally represent the noise and violence of the modern world.” I say: play this bloody loud, wake up your neighborhood and start a riot!

ICE-T And BODY COUNT Back With A Crushing Headbutt That Matters…

Havoc that thrills us in a way we want to scream out loud…


‘No Lives Matter’ by BODY COUNT


ICE-T and his metal gang BODY COUNT are back with a loud and fucking clear message. New single NO LIVES MATTER doesn’t need much explanation actually. It’s a furious, smoking hot, in-your-face manifesto about racism, about America 2017. An alternative take on the debate between Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter movements.

All hell breaks loose after the veteran rapper’s opening statement: ” It’s unfortunate that we even have to say ‘Black Lives Matter’, I mean, if you go through history nobody ever gave a fuck. I mean, you can kill black people in the street, nobody goes to jail, nobody goes to prison. But when I say ‘Black Lives Matter’ and you say ‘All Lives Matter’, that’s like if I was to say ‘Gay Lives Matter’ and you say ‘All Lives Matter’. If I said, ‘Women’s Lives Matter’ and you say ‘All Lives Matter’, you’re diluting what I’m saying. You’re diluting the issue. The issue isn’t about everybody. It’s about black lives, at the moment“.

A nasty, crushing headbutt that matters…

‘No Lives Matter’ is the first single from new album ‘Bloodlust’ out 31 March.
