(striking artwork!)

Who: Scuzzy London 4 piece

New single: DOOM TOURIST
An ode for future mudlarkers. From the group’s
new EP ‘Machine in the Monkey, out in September.

Turn Up The Volume: Wham-bloody-bam drum intro, scorching guitars,
filthy groove, psych-o-tic vocals, all in just 50 seconds. Spooky stuff, right?
Sounds like Nick Cave and his freakish gang The Birthday Party are back
with a filthy slo-mo blues-injected blast. If you like creepy post-punk doom
and gloom from a smelly basement you’ll love this to death. Scary right?
You betcha.

Release the bats…


Back to your basement, guys…

Here come 5 new firecrackers to fuel your weekend…

‘Lipstick’ by NOTHINGHEADS (London, UK)

Kamikaze guitars à la Link Wray and Dick Dale, Ramones sniffin’ glue again, and devilish
Lux Interior howls. Yes, it’s psycho-surf-billy time, folks. Get your leather jacket out of the closet and pretend you’re a member of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. This is the first single off their upcoming EP ‘Machine in the Monkey’.

Press play right here…

‘Sad But True’ (Metallica song) by ST. VINCENT (Tulsa, US)

Metallica sounding sexy, sultry, and snappy? Like the late great funk genius
Prince? Yes, it happens right here, thanks to disco queen St. Vincent.

Wham bam…

‘Lineage’ by SMOKE (Holland)

Louisiana Swamp Blues sultriness from… The Netherlands. No frontiers when it comes
to stirring up the steam, turning up the heat, and pumping up the decibels. This red-hot ripper is about “brotherhood and supporting your friends and family during hard times.”

All together now…

‘Ladylike (Don’t Hold Her Back)’ by CUBS REFRAIN (Toronto, CA)

Band member Erin Roblin reflects on her experiences with society’s expectations of her as a woman, including the fight for control of her own choices in her life and career. It’s 2021 and women still have to suffer from external pressure. Incredible. Therefore, encouraging earworms like these are always welcome for everybody – regardless the gender – who struggles with being pushed for the wrong reasons by the wrong people. Ladylike is a frisky and sprightly humanlike booster. Get up, stand up and fight for your right to be who you are.

Jive to the beat…

‘Glide’ by THE DAILY SPREADSHEETS (Divinópolis, Minas Gerais)

Brazilian singer/songwriter Henrique Neves is the man behind The Daily Spreadsheets.
Riff-roaring rock ‘n’ roll streams through his sonic veins for years now. On Glide he lets
The Beach Boys sound like if they were a speed-up garage band. Good vibrations indeed.

London’s Garage Punks NOTHINGHEADS Produce Elephantic Noise On New Slam ‘TOPSY’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

9 December 2019


Who: Fresh group of noiseniks out of London

Track: TOPSY – new single about “an elephant being electrocuted for public amusement
in 1903. “Topsy” was executed on Coney Island during a publicity stunt claiming to be part
of a scientific demonstration by Thomas Edison, but later revealed to be because she’d killed
a spectator who stubbed a cigar out on her trunk.”

Score: This new garage punk unit produces a distorted and turbulent Hawkind-like
groove fed by dueling guitars and relentless percussion with murky vocals rolling all
over it. Its hectic and manic rush will have a trembling impact on your speakers and
your hungry ears and its elephantic disturbance will leave you behind in a confused
state of sonic commotion. Experience the droning tumult right here…
