Familiars – S/T – DD 2014

31st August 2014 at 11:15 am

Familiars - S/T

Familiars apparently recorded these two tracks on a farm in Ontario, though it wouldn’t be in any way hard to imagine them having been recorded in a shack in the desert in California given their take on stoned, blissed out riff rock. Taking a…

Fange ‘Poisse’ CD/CS/DD 2014

17th May 2014 at 10:40 am

Fange

Alright, friendly folks with unfriendly looks, here’s some truth… As much as quite a number of you like to dress as either seventies relics, sleazy thugs or punks with wristbands, we all know that nowadays only secluded dope-addled brits and other real scum seem…

Fashion Week – S/T – Digital EP 2011

24th April 2012 at 8:26 am

Fashion Week - S/T - Digital EP 2011

New York trio Fashion Week keep it tight, sharp and nasty on this short but not-too-sweet download-only release from the lovely folks at Coextinction, following on from their equally short and arguably more abrasive 2011 demo. Guitarist/vocalist Joshua Lozano churns out alternately angular and…

Fatalism ‘Mystery Of Death’ CD/CS/DD 2014

11th May 2014 at 11:56 am

Fatalism

I, I, I, am not crazy and that’s NOT how it goes, and I, I, I, am not nervous. I, I, I, am just trying to figure out why three of the four extended song titles on Fatalism’s debut ‘Mystery Of Death’ begin with…

Fatty Chan ‘Tunguska’ CDEP 2008

15th March 2008 at 9:32 am

Fatty Chan

I’m guessing the name Fatty Chan won’t mean too much to anyone at the moment as, although the band have been in existence for the last couple of years on the Exeter metal scene they have maintained a fairly low profile to hone their…

Fellwoods ‘Wulfram’ CD/LP/DD 2012

7th February 2012 at 9:28 am

Fellwoods

In music as with cinema, there has been a resurgence over the last few years, of art that gets labeled as “retro”. Al Mabon of At War With False Noise even went so far as to label this superb release as “retro rock”, but…

Fen ‘Of Losing Interest’ CD/DD 2012

19th August 2012 at 9:17 am

Fen

PROG!!! For most rock music fans if you utter this word to them it will make them recoil in horror…like shouting “BACON” in a synagogue!!! If you’re still reading this after that initial outburst the chances are you’re probably partial to some tricksy time…

Fen ‘Trails Out Of Gloom’ CD 2010

11th July 2010 at 8:51 am

Fen

Hmm, when something is described as prog in this day and age I immediately raise an eyebrow and suspicions are high. Don’t get me wrong, I do love a bit of old school eccentric prog…a nice bit of King Crimson, a good blast of…

Filthpact ‘Resurrected Under Condemnation’ CD/DD 2014

4th July 2014 at 8:36 am

Filthpact

Filthpact are, or should I say were, a Scottish crust punk band full of grindcore and socio-political influences. They split up this year, but have released Resurrected Under Condemnation, a collection of all their tracks released between 2010 and 2014. We’re looking at 20…

Firebird ‘Double Diamond’ CD/LP 2011

11th March 2011 at 9:12 am

Firebird

This latest offering from Firebird has been in the can for the best part of a year and has already seen a successful release through the band’s Japanese label but for some unexplainable reason is only just seeing the light of day in the…
