Tricorn ‘The Walk Of Shame’ CD/DD 2013

25th January 2014 at 10:49 am

Tricorn

No one can honestly say that the underground stoner rock scene isn’t full of uncompromising, hard working and diligent bands. Tricorn emerged in 2010 with their self titled album that was a decent enough stab of noisy rock and roll with some fine songs…

Sasquatch ‘IV’ CD/DD 2013

9th January 2014 at 12:28 pm

Sasquatch

Familiarity and reliability are great things, like that pair of jeans that’s served you well for so long and feels like a second skin, the car that just keeps on going and starts first time, those Monty Python films that never fail to raise…

Ollie Stygall Reflects On The Year That Was 2013

20th December 2013 at 12:26 pm

Ollie Stygall

2013 has certainly been a bit of a blur. It doesn’t seem like any time at all since I was compiling my list of albums for 2012 and my lines get a little blurry as to what album was released when if truth be…

The Earls Of Mars – S/T – CD/DD 2013

17th December 2013 at 8:35 am

The Earls Of Mars - S/T

Experimental musical collaborations can often go horribly wrong. All too often musicians with an inflated sense of self worth and their own talent will get together to produce works that succeed on no level other than to examine the contents of their own colons….

Blues Pills ‘Devil Man’ CD/10″/DD 2013

13th December 2013 at 6:55 am

Blues Pills

Guitarists always seem to be on a quest to find the perfect tone…spending hours trying out different guitars, amps, strings, pedals, valves…etc in an unending attempt to chase the elusive sound they hear only in their heads. Singers, on the other hand, pretty much…

Ancient Warlocks - S/T

It’s a risky business to start a new label in this current musical climate when so many people want something for nothing but the Lay Bare principal is a simple one…you want it you buy it. On vinyl!!! Getting Mos Generator on board for…

Gonga ‘Concrescence’ CD/LP/DD 2013

11th November 2013 at 9:05 am

Gonga ‘Concrescence’

If ever a band deserves kudos for sheer dogged persistence and durability it has to be Bristol’s own stoner doom veterans Gonga. It has been an astonishing 15 years since the Elgie brethren of George on guitar and Tom on drums started the band…

20th October 2013 at 11:47 am

Sweet Times Volume 1

So, one of my favourite underground labels, Who Can You Trust Records, is starting a series of 7” compilations entitled “Sweet Times”. This is sexy news indeed. I’ve always been a bit of a fan of split releases so here we have four bands…

Mellow Bravo ‘RiPPER’ Digital EP 2013

19th October 2013 at 12:53 pm

Mellow Bravo

When Mellow Bravo’s debut full length landed last year I was immediately hooked by the band’s schizophrenic take on classic rock and roll. The album rocked hard but pulled from many facets of rock and roll history to drive up avenues that embraced country,…

Mos Generator ‘In Concert’ LP 2013

11th October 2013 at 10:04 am

Mos Generator

Don’t you just hate some people? They seem to ooze awesomeness from every pore and win on every level in everything they do. Tony Reed is one such a person. With Stone Axe he rewrote the rule book for retro rock and roll and…
