Rachmanite – S/T – CDEP 2008

7th August 2008 at 9:09 am

No Artwork

I have to admit on paper when I first heard about this band I was pretty wary. A two piece instrumental band with guitar and drums. If I’m completely honest I was fully expecting this to be a half formed load of shit. Well…

Pelican ‘City Of Echoes’ CD/LP 2007

27th February 2007 at 8:54 am

V/A

Mothertrucker ‘The Last Ride Of Dr Sanchez’ CD 2005

21st October 2005 at 9:16 am

Mothertrucker

When I first heard about this band, the name conjured up images of some long haired, bearded, redneck southern rock band, OK I may have hit on a stereotype here but this really couldn’t be further from the truth. This four piece, to my…

6th April 2005 at 9:06 am

Capricorns - S/T - CDEP 2005

When I first heard about Capricorns I was instantly intrigued, I guess you could say they’re a bit of a ‘supergroup’ of sorts boasting members from the now legendary Iron Monkey (Dean Berry) & rock ‘n’ rollers Orange Goblin (Chris Turner), so when I…
