British post-punks SHAME canned their third longplayer.
It’s titled FOOD FOR WORMS and will hit the streets on
24 February 2023.
Ahead of it the mavericks already shared two tasters.
Fingers Of Steel and barded wire punk blow Six-Pack.
The latter was accompanied by a hilarious video, directed
by Gilbert Bannerman and animated by Cyrus Hayley.
Bannerman: “The idea was to make a parody of a middle aged bloke thinking
he’s a king for going to the gym once. I read a lot about Napoleon and thought it
would be a laugh to make it about him. The style comes from trying to make my
youth spent playing PS1 not entirely wasted.”

Artists: THE CHRONICLES OF MANIMAL AND SAMARA
Who: London-based duo – Daphne Ang (Singapore) and
Andrea Papi (Italy) – that fills a gap in music by bringing
literature, art, and history together into a space where
rock and metal meet electronica.
This experimental tandem released their sophomore LP
TRUST NO LEADERS last July. A notable follow-up to their
stunning debut Trust No Leaders. You can buy here.
Turn Up The Volume said: One of the fascinating songs on the LP is THE PIED PIPER. It resonates like a sort of religious chant, not about a God but about the people all around the world oppressed by corrupt politicians and greedy rich people. 2022 looks more and more like George Orwell’s 1984.
The video TCOMAS launched mid-October is another visual tour de force. I said it several times before and I’ll repeat it again. This duo are ingenious architects in sound and vision and in all of their artwork. As DIY artists the inexhaustible energy, imagination, and passion they put into their work is nothing less than astonishing.
