THE UNDERGROUND YOUTH Drops Another Blistering Cut From New Album – Here’s ‘LAST EXIT TO NOWHERE’…

Brand new sonic impulses

21 February 2019

On 29th March Berlin via Manchester cult post-punks THE UNDERGROUND YOUTH
will release their ninth album MONTAGE IMAGES OF LUST & FEAR via Fuzz Club.
After launching inflammable lead single The Death Of An Author the band shares another furious track. LAST EXIT TO NOWHERE is a 24 karat knockout. A blistering
blast sounding like THE VELVET UNDERGOUND on speed instead of heroin. Ominous, threatening and sinister. A wall of repetitive riffage with vocalist/guitarist Craig Dyer’s
mind-boggling vox accentuating the cutting gloominess of this rabid ripper. Hell yeah!

Get doomed right here…

London’s MADONNATRON Back With Their New Gusty Belter… ‘SUCKER PUNCH’

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

21 February 2019

London‘s turbulent indie rockers MADONNATRON are back. Here’s, after their self-titled 2017 debut album and the steamy 2018 single Mermaids, new spooky single ‘SUCKER PUNCH‘. Think “Red Sonja Vs Paris Hilton in the Thunderdome” says the band. In other words this is a flamboyant belter pushed by a solid drum/bass beat, electrified with bloodthirsty guitars while the high-pitched vocals cause that typical, sensual Madonnatron voodoo feel again. The infectious chorus and multiple-voiced gusty finale ensure that ‘Sucker Punch‘ will invade your brain and wander around for some time without asking permission.

Listen/watch right here…

PATTI SMITH – ‘Piss Factory’ (1974)…

Sonic knockouts from the past

21 February 2019

Piss Factory‘ by PATTI SMITH
The first recording of a song she wrote herself (with music from her pianist Richard Sohl).
It was actually a poem which recounted her teenage experiences in a baby buggy factory, expressing her assurance that she would not let this awful time kill her ambitions. It was the B-side to her cover version of ‘Hey Joe‘ and released independently in 1974. It was ten minutes of what seems like a free jazz piano driven performance with Patti Smith reading, actually half-spitting, her poem over it. Pretty spellbinding, pretty special. Lyrics here.

Scottish pop veterans TEENAGE FANCLUB just shared a brand new track since their 2016 album Here and one year after bassist, vocalist, and founding member Gerard Love left the band. The title of the new song EVERYTHING IS FALLING APART doesn’t sound optimistic but sonically it has that vintage Fanclub swagger and catchy melodiousness. Tune in here…

Veteran psych act from Los Angeles THE DREAM SYNDICATE will launch their first album since 2012. THESE TIMES is out next May. Frontman Steve Wynn says about the lyrical content of the new record: “There is no avoiding the existential panic of a world that’s hurtling somewhere quickly, evolving, and shifting course by the hour,” he says. “It seems like a lie to not address or reflect the things that we can’t stop thinking about — the whole world’s watching indeed. The lyrics are just a mirror of the dread, panic, mania, speculation, melancholy and ultimately shrugging abandonment that just might follow. It’s just all about where we are.”

Here’s lead single ‘BLACK LIGHT‘. A repetitive trance-inducing groove that sticks instantly…


THESE TIMES – out 5 May via ANTI-

Danish Quartet KÚLU Glows On New Heart-Rending Gem ‘LONELY RUNNING MAN’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

20 February 2019

Band: KÚLU

Who: A fresh Danish four-piece “creating a sharp sound image with a sense of authority and conviction, based on post-rock and noise rock“.

Track: LONELY RUNNING MAN – the band’s second single “about losing everything from
one second to the next, and that everything else around you keeps moving on while you are completely paralyzed and numb.”

Score: This is melodramatic and touching magnificence. After the retrospective intro about a relationship break-up a glowing guitar and atmospheric synths loaded symphony floats straight to your heart turning inconsolable love sickness into an epic discharge of pain and sorrow. Catch the sonic tenderness right here…
