Great extended plays
7 November 2023
Band: CLONE (Vancouver, Canada)
Who: A female-fronted collective of musicians from various eclectic backgrounds
who bonded over their shared love of 70’s rock, specifically glam rock. They produce
rock anthems that fuse punk with glitter and power with pop.
New EP: KNOCK OUT DROPS VOL. II
Kelly Zombor (guitarist): “Our goal was to capture the raw energy and bombastic spirit of 70’s glam and spin it with our punk meets modern pop vibe. We really feel like we achieved that. We also wanted to capture the live feel of our current lineup. To that end, we gave ourselves a tight, 3 day schedule to complete six songs. After 3 days we actually recorded 7.”

TUTV: One of the most exiting/thrilling no nonsense, party-orienated rock eras was
the 70s one with British glam and glitter icons such as T.Rex, The Sweet, Roxy Music, David
Bowie and Suzi Quatro and America‘s pin-up punks like The Runaways and New York Dolls.
CLONE love them all and let us hear it loud and clear on this new banging, stomping
and pumping EP with 7 catchy-as-hell firecrackers, punked-up with crazy guitar fireworks, walloping drumming and the drop-dead gorgeous queen Juniper Watters spicing up all tunes with her sultry and vocal bravado. Rock chicks like Joan Jett, Miley Cyrus and Pat Benatar come to mind. Wild, right? You betcha.
New Year’s Eve is getting near. KNOCK OUT DROPS VOL. II is an ideal effervescent sonic cocktail to get nuts and drunk to when the clock strikes midnight. Start practicing right now, right here.

New EP: THREEHOPPER (VOL. 3)
Their 3rd extended play.
TUTV: Vantre mix post-punk, trash-and-clash havoc, metallic drones and barbed-wire electricity and what you get is what you hear. Bass/drum attacks, fueled with deranged guitars, going forth and back on Fart In A Jar. Siren-like guitars on a mid-tempo trip that ends with a deafening, apocalyptic eruption (Vitalik B.) A sonic nightmare creeping slowly like a hungry snake bringing the early days of Scottish noise-explorers Mogwai to mind,
on Pillage. And I’m pretty sure they arre fans of Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

26 April 2023
Two years ago, Oklahoma City‘s rowdy pandemonium rockers CHAT PILE
released a hot-boiling split 7″ with Texan scream team Portrail Of Guilt.
Last year they unleashed their bloody blasting debut LP God’s Country.
And now they return to what they did before. Splitting stuff with another band.
This time it’s muscled Kansas City’s gang NERVER who are the lucky ones. Both
groups have each 2 jackhammering songs on an EP titled BROTHERS IN CRIST.
Play it to the max. Test your stereo’s resilience.
But warn your neighborhood first that a titanic
storm is coming in order to avoid a visit by
the decibels police.

6 April 2023
Band: FIESTA ALBA (Rome, Italy)
Who: 4 masked gunslingers describing themselves as “losers on a planet
where nobody really wins. He who has nothing to lose cannot lose anything.”
Debut EP: FIESTA ALBA Order info here.
TUTV: They look like a male, colorful masked version of the Russian political punk grrls Pussy Riot. They mix, cleverly and masterly, math rock, minimalist afrobeat, electronica, post-punk, funk, hip-rap-hop and anything that will trigger you to get your lazy ass out of your lazy couch, move your furniture and make room for some psychoneurotic dance moves.
Opening track ‘Laundry’
This chaotic 5 track cocktail EP, with 4 different vocalists, is a mind-bending tangle of all
things excitingly kooky for nightclubs where misfits, dropouts, eccentrics and other related outsiders have a ball. Yes, wicked music for wicked people by wicked madcaps.
