BEASTIE BOYS Released Big Time 4th Scream & Shout ‘ILL COMMUNICATION’ Album 25 Years Ago …

31 May 2019

Far-out hip-rap-hop rock legends BEASTIE BOYS released their fourth ace full length scream & shout ILL COMMUNICATION today 25 years ago, on 31 May 1994. An artistic
and commercial success hitting the top spot of the US Albums Chart.

Rolling Stone wrote: “Ill Communication continues the formula established on ‘Check’ — home-grown jams powered by live instruments; speedy hardcore rants; and insane rhyme
styles buried under the warm hiss of vintage analog studio equipment. ‘Ill’ maintains the Beasties’ consistency of style, but underneath its goofy, dope-smokin’ antics lies — gasp! —
an artistic maturity that reveals how the Boys have grown since they began as pimply New
York punks making anarchic noise.’

Three of Turn Up The Volume‘s favorite fight for your right to party highlights…

THE RINGARDS Share Love/Hate Song About A Town Called L.A. – Here’s ‘HOLIDAY BITCH’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

30 May 2019

London‘s plain-speaking/singing/rocking trio THE RINGARDS nail it again with a toxic
mixed emotions track called HOLIDAY BITCH. A caustic cracker with a funky vibe and
some punchy and cynical spoken word sequences describing a love/hate relationship
with the city of Los Angeles where one of the band members spend a great part of his youth. Another great jam from this promising threesome sounding as if was produced
by the now heavily scoring South London misfits Fat White Family. Tune in right here…

The only crazed way, is The Darts way. This corker is on these fiery garage bats’ 2nd album.

Ignore the fake news. Rock and roll is not dead!! These sweaty Aussies are the living proof.

Blues rock voodoo that nails you to the cross. So will debut LP ‘Welcome To Silvertown’.

4. ‘Meat Week’ by BROKEN BABY (L.A. CA, US)
Loud and crystal clear tirade bottled in a motorik bass/drum beat pushed groove. Yeah!

5. ‘Calm Down Aka I Should Not Be Alone’ by EZRA FURMAN (Evanston, IL, US)
A totally not-calm corker, full of peppy vivacity and fervent emotion from upcoming LP.

6. ‘Even Tough’ by HOLY MAGICK (Brighton, UK)
A magnetic trance-like groove that sticks from the get-go. Discover their debut LP here.

7. ‘Shake It‘ by FERAL FIVE (East London, UK)
Tremendous racy electro killer with an instant impact on your hips, feet and mind…

8. ‘The Joker’
by THE STONE BIRDS (Portsmouth, UK)
From a slow-burning torch to a droning steamroller with attitude and swagger. Score!

9. ‘Lonesome Prairie’ by SOUVENIR DRIVER (Portland, OR, US)
Glorious amplified pop pearl from their new stellar album A Dangerous Crossing.

10. ‘Little Romance’ by ECHOTAPE (South England)
Ecstatic tonality, effervescent flow, bang-up vocals, and an exuberant chorus. Top!

11. ‘Hesitate’ by SOCIAL STATION (Washington D.C., US)
Warm synths, infectious percussion, pulsating bass, and dreamy vocals. Melancholic gem!
