2. ‘The Talkies’ by GIRL BAND (Ireland)
These Irish noise engine’s bone-crushing and soul-pulverizing resonance is
both idiosyncratic and bloodcurdling. It’s remarkable how all their intimidating
havoc comes together as one coherent crusade going in the same tumultuous
direction. Expect sonic exorcism at its hellish best. A hair-rising achievement!

4. ‘Tainted Lunch’ by WARMDUSCHER (UK)
This London’s mad combo’s fourth album is undoubtedly their best. These group of miscreants produce doomed disco grooves for all outsiders, misfits and bohemians
who hate mainstream music. This funky record’s spirit is wicked and gloriously wacky.

6. ‘Serfs Up!’ by FAT WHITE FAMILY (London, UK)
South-London‘s desperadoes’ third LP is a versatile record of multi-layered tunefulness, hypnotic grooviness and funky psychedelia. Less provocative, but still enough wicked tales and quirky observations. Half speed, half valium. And live still one of the trenchant best!

8. ‘A Life Extinct’ by CROSS WIRES (UK)
This is a most thrilling band that cares. A band that roars about what they care. A band
that matters. A band on the top of its hot-tempered game, tackling the grim times we all experience! This is a rowdy record filled with fiery post-punk rippers and raging blasts!

9. ‘Bury The Sun’ by DOWN THE LEES
The debut album by this forceful Belgian trio is a spine-tingling record that expresses
the band’s concern about our world’s future, about our world’s climate drama, about
our world’s survival. Noise rock with a big heart, a gripping soul and a passionate voice.

10. ‘Amyl And The Sniffers’ by AMYL AND THE SNIFFERS (Melbourne, Australia)
70s punk and glam rock revisited with kamikaze frontwoman Amyl Taylor spitting and sneering crazily and wildly. The Runaways, The Plasmatics and Motörhead, all in one. Ace!
