The Killing Cure – S/T – CDEP 2008

The Killing Cure - S/T - CDEP 2008

Picture the scene. The sun hangs high in the sky, blazing the eyes and distorting the landscape with its intense heat. Ahead of you the road cuts a swathe through the dunes and mountains, rocks lie static and the occasional cactus rises from the…

Ufomammut ‘Idolum’ CD/LP 2008

31st August 2008 at 8:53 am

Ufomammut

Acid rock for the sludge generation. Yes, it was with an almost sexual joy that I stylishly flipped the disc into the player and hit the play button. If you didn’t know by now pop-fuckers, Ufomammut are an Italian psychedelic power trio that create…

Medamaki Interview

30th August 2008 at 1:11 pm

Medamaki

Medamaki won’t be a name too familiar with many of you hailing as they do from the rock and roll capital of Evesham but hopefully with the release of their “Warbird” EP on Fury 76 Records this may change pretty soon. I caught up…

Medamaki ‘Warbird’ CDEP 2008

30th August 2008 at 8:51 am

Medamaki

“Hello Evesham, you guys rock!!!” Hmmm, it doesn’t really have much of a ring to it does it? I can’t really imagine these words falling from the lips of Steven Tyler, James Hetfield, Bono or Bruce Springsteen. The very name Evesham brings to mind…

27th August 2008 at 9:17 am

Steve Von Till

First we had Scott Kelly and now Steve Von Till, I’m guessing there was a break in the Neurosis schedule last winter, as here we have a another solo album by a member of the infamous Neurot tribe. This time singer/vocalist Steve Von Till’s…

Disfear ‘Live The Storm’ CD 2008

26th August 2008 at 9:03 am

Disfear

What does the term Punk Rock mean these days? It’s a genre so watered down by lightweight, pop star-aspiring posturing, and if were honest it never meant much in the first place anyway. The Sex Pistols were just a 70’s boy band assembled by…

Scott Kelly ‘The Wake’ CD/LP 2008

23rd August 2008 at 8:53 am

Scott Kelly

I’ve been sat here for twenty five minutes listening to Scott Kelly’s second solo album wondering how I can possibly put any critique of the Neurosis mans record into words. Like his main venture this music is so elemental, so intrinsically earthbound but simultaneously…
