To Hell With Blue Mondays – Here’s Post Punk Force ‘HELTA SKELTA’ From Down Under…

Weekly firework to kick Blue Mondays in the ass…

Band: HELTA SKELTA (Perth, Australia)
Who: “After a few full-length records, a few EPs, and a US tour in 2016, ‘Helta Skelta’ are now back with a new 7″. Here, Helta Skelta change things up yet again, never one to let things dull.

A much more art rock and post-punk outing this time round whilst still holding on to those aspects of 70s garage punk from previous efforts.”
Track: NIGHTCLUBBIN’ – Lead track of a brand new 3-song 7″…
