Eleven Knockout Tracks on repeat this past month!
A tasty cocktail of rollicking rippers and first-rate cuts.
Here’s Turn Up The Volume‘s Knockout April Team!

.
1. ‘Blah Blah Blah’ by MEMES (Glasgow, Scotland)
The spirit of The Fall’s debut EP Bingo-Master’s Break-Out!. Ramshackle racket!…

2. ‘Covered In Filth’ by THE MEDICINE DOLLS (Capetown, South Africa)
Raw rollicking rockabilly riffs with waggish bubblegum ooh-la-la’s. Filthy score!

3. ‘Don’t’ by MILLIONAIRE (Belgium)
An ominous funky smack fueled by a mighty disco stomp. Hell yeah!…

4. ‘Candy’ by FALLING MAN (Belgium)
An enigmatic painkiller for spooky midnight hours. It will keep you sane. Maybe…

5. ‘Stay Where You Stand’ by THE RINGARDS (London, UK)
Jangly guitars, ace pace, poppy synths and a scream/sing/hum along chorus. Top!

6. ‘The Way In’ by THE DREAM SYNDICATE (Los Angeles, CA, US)
Electrifying psych piece from the band’s new upcoming album ‘These Times

7. ‘Hey’ Gyp (Dig The Slowness) by THE RACONTEURS (US)
Jack White & buddies back with gloriously messy Donovan cover…

8. ‘6.30‘ by SUPER PARADISE (London,UK)
When blitzkrieg guitars, echoing vocals and flashy synths meet. A bang-up roller coaster!

9. ‘Who’s Been Having You Over’ by PETER DOHERTY & THE PUTA MADRES (UK)
Snappy garage stomper with sharp-edged guitar licks and Doherty‘s characteristic vox…

10. ‘Prozac Spaceman’ by FAUX CO. (Chicago, US)
This delightful humdinger will dance in your head for some time after one spin…

11. ‘Parabole’ by TURQUOISE (Bruxelles, Belgique)
Sensuous French vocals, glimmering guitars and New Order‘s blue dynamics. Magnifique!…

Scottish Post Punks MEMES Hit Hard Twice With Double Debut Single ‘BLAH BLAH BLAH’ And ‘FUNNY MAN’

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

8 April 2019

Band: MEMES

Who: A noisy Glasgow duo called John and Paul – not that John and Paul, obviously.
And as band name John Paul II would be ridiculous, they called themselves MEMES.

Tracks: ‘BLAH BLAH BLAH’ / ‘FUNNY MAN’ – brand new double A-side single

Score: ‘Memes‘ is one of those faceless bands you stumble into now and then on the Internet. As long as their havoc makes my hair stand up in the back of my neck I really don’t care actually how a band looks like. And this fresh Glaswegian John/Paul tandem succeeds in getting my sonic attention directly with their double A-side debut single.
Both smoking tracks, ‘Blah Blah Blah‘ and ‘Funny Man‘ resonate gloriously infectious, crackingly jingle jangle and rumbly creaking. If The Fall would release their 1978 debut
EP Bingo-Master’s Break-Out! today, it would sound as tumultuous and blustery as this…
