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.

Clips that will impress your ears and your eyes…


‘Whirling Eye’ by THE KILLS


Last June THE KILLS released ASH & ICE, their fifth album. Now they shared a video for WHIRLING EYE, the best track of the LP to my ears with the following message: “We had an amazing time making a virtual reality video in Los Angeles for “Whirling Eye” with our long time friend Sophie Muller, using the Omni – GoPro’s synchronized 6-camera array. For the full 360-degree experience you should watch in Google Chrome, via your smartphone device or
on a mobile VR headset.”

I hope you find the way to make the clip work like it should…

THE DAMNED – Scored One Of The Best Punk Classics… NEW ROSE

When timeless in sound and vision it’s a.…


‘New Rose’ by THE DAMNED


As already reported a few days ago on these pages British punks THE DAMNED
released their smashing debut LP DAMNED DAMNED DAMNED 40 years ago
today – on 18 February 1977. A top-notch powerhouse that stood the test of time splendidly and… loudly. To celebrate here’s NEW ROSE. The smashing first single
(released in October of the previous year) of the album. Without a shadow of
a doubt one of the true punk classics. Hell yeah!…

Is she really going out with him?
I gotta a feelin’ inside of me
It’s kinda strange like a stormy sea
I don’t know why, I don’t know why
I guess these things have gotta be
I gotta new rose, I got her good
Guess I knew that I always would
I can’t stop to mess around
Like a brand new rose in town
See the sun, see the sun it shines
Don’t get too close or it’ll burn your eyes
Don’t you run away that way
You can come back another day

I never thought this could happen to me
I feel so strange, so why should it be
I don’t deserve somebody this great
I’d better go or it’ll be too late, yeah

EMBRACE – Epic Debut Single ‘ALL YOU GOOD GOOD PEOPLE’ Released 20 Years Ago…

When timeless in sound and vision it’s a.…


‘All You Good People’ by EMBRACE


British indie rockers EMBRACE, featuring two brothers, singer Danny McNamara and guitarist Richard McNamara were hailed at the start of their career as potential contenders to compete with Manchester legends OASIS. Their very first single ALL YOU GOOD GOOD PEOPLE – from their debut album THE GOOD WILL OUT that went gold on the day of its release (on 8 June 1997) – definitely had all ingredients to achieve the high expectations.
A truly gripping, anthemic ballad with a monumental chorus and an overall big, elevating orchestration that turned the track into a pure (underrated) classic. Here’s the epic beauty, released 20 years ago on 17 February 1997

I feel like I meant something
You always say, you need more time
Well, I’ll stay right here
And I’ll wait for good until I find a love worth mine

Someday, you’ve got it coming
It hurts me when I read the signs
So loud and clear, that I’ll make you glad
If I’m leaving first and crying

All you good good people listen to me
You’re just about done with the way that you feel
‘Cause nothing rings home enough to dig your heels in
You don’t have to leave me to see what I mean
All you good good people listen to me

And all I wanna do is find my name upon the line
Before I have to lose this I want time

All you good good people listen to me
You’re just about done with the way that you feel
‘Cause nothing rings home enough to dig your heels in
You don’t have to leave me to see what I mean
Lose all your fears, they are keeping you down
You won’t have to fake it, while I’m around
All you good good people listen to me

The band is still alive and kicking and now working on a new, their seventh, album.

SPiN – Fervent Clip For Smoking Lead Track Of New EP…

Clips that will impress your ears and your eyes…


‘Dig Your Own Grave’ by SPiN


SPiN, the powerful 4-piece engine from Philadelphia have released a video for the lead track of their brand new EP. DIG YOUR OWN GRAVE is a nasty, pounding rocker with an inflammable chorus that sounds like the frightening tick-tick-tick noise of a time bomb. After looking at the lyrics I first thought that this hammer was about idiot Donald Trump digging his own grave, but the clip reveals another story. Anyway, turn up the volume, here’s the merciless hammer…

You got it all figured out, don’t you
gonna watch it all fade in the rear view
When are you gonna learn to keep your mouth shut?
You may be winning for now, but so what?

You’re so smart, you think you know what to do
I’m gonna take a step back and watch you

Dig, Dig, Dig, Dig Dig Dig
Dig Dig Dig Dig
Dig your own grave

Oh well, There’s something I forgot to mention
the road to hell is paved with good intentions
and your intention is to get what you want
but I know what you’re gonna get – uh huh

You walk tall, your words are getting bolder,
better keep a sharp eye over your shoulder

Dig, Dig, Dig, Dig Dig Dig
Dig Dig Dig Dig
Dig your own grave

Turn around, your past is catching up to you
I’m gonna take a step back, and enjoy you

Dig, Dig, Dig, Dig Dig Dig
Dig Dig Dig Dig
Dig your own grave

You can stream the 4-track EP in full here on Spotify

Home: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, US
Score: this is a tremendously feel better record with an inventive mix of the best pop echoes of the sixties and this decade’s reborn DIY garage rock creativity. A sparkling cocktail of sensual harmonies, sultry organs, sparkling riffs and catching tunes for
different moods. From heavy-hearted, melodic melancholy to elevating jingle jangle
joy. Nostalgic glamor for romantic souls dancing the night away with this jukebox on…
