Alunah/Queen Elephantine – Split 7"2009

So, Def Leppard’s Hysteria took four years to arrive which, at the time, seemed a long time until Guns N Roses decided to raise the bar with 17 years between studio albums. That this release is approximately two years later than expected seems almost…

Pelican ‘What We All Come To Need’ CD/LP 2009

24th October 2009 at 8:44 am

Pelican

In some ways I’m pretty fortunate in that I’ve been living under a rock for several years and have never heard a note of Pelican’s previous work so can come to this new offering with fresh ears. I am, for want of a better…

Low Sonic Drift ‘Shadows Of The Titan’ CDEP 2009

17th October 2009 at 8:54 am

Invasion ‘The Master Alchemist’ CD 2009

3rd October 2009 at 9:04 am

Invasion

Some things just aren’t going to work, like a Chihuahua fucking a Great Dane, bacon sandwiches at a Jewish wedding, Jordan and Peter Andre…doomed to fail. So if you take a slightly nerdy Sleep obsessed guitarist, a female John Bonham who plays her drums…

Doctor Cyclops – Untitled & ‘The Flying Machines Burning’ CDEP’s 2008

1st October 2009 at 9:09 am

No Artwork
