“In homage of Kurt and this historic album we bring you Nirvana ‘Bleach’
Love Buzz red edition for Valentine’s Day (Feb 14, 2021). Limited to 500
, exclusively available at Tapehead City!”

Oh no, damn

Young London Wolves THE UTOPIATES Score With Debut Single ‘ONLY HUMAN’

Daily electricity to load your batteries…

17 January 2021


Who: A London based indie group formed under the dark clouds of 2020.
They aim to bring the masses the kind of groovy but hard-hitting rock songs
not heard for a long time.

“We are the escape from an ever-divided world and we are the hope of a
brighter future. Join us on our journey, together we can achieve anything.”

Pick: ONLY HUMAN – debut single

Score: From the very start you get everything you need to jump out of your
lazy couch and perform your coolest moves, the ones you only make when
nobody is looking. Expect an irresistible, ongoing drum beat, ablaze guitars,
captivating vocals, and a huge bloodstream-boosting chorus. Premium debut!

Do you really want to know?
Your head is about to explode,
Under the weight of learning,
That you, that you’re only human

Let’s roll

Released: 17 January 1976 – 45 years ago
Score: #5 in the UK and #46 in the US

AllMusic/Donald Guarisco: “It is a well-crafted album that shows off 10cc’s eccentric humor and pop smarts in equal measure… How Dare You never hits the giddy heights of The Original Soundtrack but it remains a solid album of witty pop songs that will satisfy anyone with a yen for 10cc.” Score: 4/5.

Don’t Look Back In Anger – Hear And See Debut Track ‘BESIDE MYSELF’ By SISTER PSYCHOSIS

Daily electricity to load your batteries…


Who: UK-Canadian duo with songwriter and vocal
powerhouse Amanda May and guitarist wunderkind Chops.

A snapshot of halcyon times. The song forms the B-Side to a 7” single which sees
Into Your Memory’ – a song inspired by an encounter with Noel Gallagher – on the
flipside via Alan McGee‘s Creation23 label. It was actually McGee, unpredictable as
usual, who asked the pair to come up with a B-Side.

Score: Expect a sickly sticky pounding psych groove that rolls with flair and
panache, and has a shadowy vibe. Amanda May looks like a femme fatale and
sounds like a femme fatale. Think of utterly mesmeric divas Alison Mosshart
and PJ Harvey. Oh yes, coolness in sonic motion. Sensuous, sexy and sensitive.
I want more!
