Davie Allan / Joel Grind – Split – 10″/CD/DD 2016

16th May 2016 at 7:21 pm

Davie Allan / Joel Grind - Split

“Of course it does, hahaha!”. This is my first thought when Davie Allan’s new jam, Recycled Too crunches in with motorcycles blasting and a big fat, snarling, fuzzed out riff. It’s been this way for 50 years, why bother changing that shit now? It…

Deville ‘Make It Belong To Us’ CD/LP/DD 2015

13th November 2015 at 7:55 pm

Deville

It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly 15 years since the death of Bay Area label Man’s Ruin Records – the underground repository for all things rock; psych, stoner, space, whatever – some of the heaviest hitting bands of the past couple of decades…

Satan’s Satyrs ‘Don’t Deliver Us’ CD/LP/DD 2015

12th November 2015 at 8:20 pm

Satan

Much like a horde of feral, strung out henchmen smash-crashing modern suburbia, the youthful Satan’s Satyrs raped and pillaged our ears with the Wild Beyond Belief (2013) and Die Screaming (2014) full lengths; they made it clear that age is irrelevant in the context…

The Shrine ‘Rare Breed’ CD/LP/DD 2015

11th November 2015 at 9:06 pm

The Shrine

I remember the very first time I saw The Shrine and I instantly knew they had it, whatever “it” is. They hadn’t even started playing, but I could tell by their loosey-goosey swagger, their denim-or-nothing retro attire and those crackling vintage amps that all…

Fuzz Evil / Chiefs – Split 7”/DD 2014

6th December 2014 at 9:22 am

Fuzz Evil / Chiefs - Split 7”

Battleground Records is a relatively new label operating out of Tucson, Arizona which supports a small roster of underground bands playing fuzzy stoner rock and sludge, both in Arizona and further afield. And successfully so, it would seem, as the label has racked up…

Sun Rider ‘Fuzz Mountain’ LP/DD 2014

30th November 2014 at 12:11 pm

Sun Rider

It’s hard to believe that Sun Rider, a band who have been together for fifteen years, have only just released their debut album Fuzz Mountain, more for the fact that it would have been nice to have heard it earlier. Although right now is…

Electric Citizen ‘Sateen’ CD/LP 2014

12th June 2014 at 9:57 am

Electric Citizen

I cringe when I hear the phrase in reviews “female fronted”. Not that I am against women singers, or think they do not belong, it just seems like a cop out, its music, no one says “male fronted” when talking about bands, so what’s…

Satan’s Satyrs ‘Die Screaming’ CD/LP/DD 2014

3rd June 2014 at 8:46 am

Satan

Amid the hoards of dusty vinyl junkies going positively batshit over the Blood Lusting arrival of Cambridgeshires mystikult rockers Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats back in 2011, precious few paid a great deal of attention to an equally evil triumvirate as they careered out…

Naam / White Hills / Black Rainbows / The Flying Eyes – Split CD/12″/DD 2014

28th May 2014 at 9:57 am

Naam / White Hills / Black Rainbows / The Flying Eyes - Split

Split releases are great in theory. For the bands, it’s an opportunity to collaborate, whether loosely or closely, with bands they admire and respect. For the fans, it can be a learning experience, helping them to discover new bands, as well as saving their…

Greenleaf ‘Trails & Passes’ CD/DD 2014

16th May 2014 at 9:58 am

Greenleaf

If you have to be brought up to speed on Greenleaf, you’re way behind the power curve; they’ve become somewhat of an institution in the underground (Swedish) rock scene, and ‘Trails & Passes’ sees them driving into an arena where the crowd has no…
