Five Fervent Firecrackers – STAY ON TRACK IN THE WEEKEND…

29 August / 30 August 2020…

Five new firecrackers to boost your favorite 48 hours…

‘This Feeling Is Disgusting’ by MOURN (Barcelona, Spain)
A roaring razor-blade ripsnorter going fast and furious without looking back.
“It’s a happy song about fear of the future, being anxious about what’s going to happen,
not knowing if you’re going to be able to earn a living or not.”
says the trio. New album
Self Worth arrives on 30 October.

‘Vote That Fucker Out’ by WRECKLESS ERIC and AMY RIGBY (UK/US)
An anger-fueled uppercut, the whole wide world should scream along to. A firm middle-finger knockout. Let’s get together and shout at the top of our lungs until the elections in November. Exit Trump is the world-saving goal, ladies and gents! Let’s act! Let’s sing…

‘Jefferson Davis Highway’ by THE PINKERTON RAID (Durham, NC, US)
Confronting, gripping and soul-stirring song/video honoring the American
anti-racist protesters who came/come out in the streets to condemn the recent
killings and attacks of black people by US law enforcement. A moving humdinger.

‘Shame‘ by UNIFORM (NYC, US)
The NYC hardcore fanatics burn slowly but surely towards a passionate explosion. “It’s a portrait of someone riddled with regret in the process of drinking themselves to death,” says frontman Michael Berdan. It’s the title track of their new album, out 9/11. Details here.

‘Snake Oil’ by NAP EYES (Halifax, US)
Electrical guitar-driven indie belter. “The song is kind of a contradiction or riddle, because whatever this ‘snake oil’ literally represents, the singer is apparently brewing and stewing it
as some kind of sustenance.”
The track comes from the sessions of their excellent album Snapshot Of A Beginner released last March.

See/hear you next week, music junkies…



Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

24 August 2020

Legendary British punk pop songsmith WRECKLESS ERIC (you’ll definitely remember his classic cracker Whole Wide World) and his wife, the awe-inspiring American voice and compelling songwriter AMY RIGBY live in the beautiful Catskill Mountains located in southeastern New York.

Just like many millions of people, in and outside the US, the musical couple wants to get
rid of that lying hate-preacher and ‘Me, Myself and I’ idiot in the White House. He divided the USA so badly that it will take the country years to recover from this evil lunatic. Eric & Amy turned their burning anger into a steamy uppercut rocker the whole wide world should scream along to. A firm middle-finger slam. Let’s get together and VOTE THAT FUCKER OUT. Exit Trump is the world-saving goal, ladies and gents! Let’s act! Let’s sing…

I never want to see his stupid face again
I never want to hear his name
Except for January 2021
When I yell shame shame shame

C’mon and vote that fucker out
Vote that fucker out
We gotta vote that fucker out
Let’s go!

C’mon, on the top of your lungs right here…
