Gorilla / Grifter

This gem of a release from Hevisike Records features two hard hitting power trios from England who exist purely to celebrate their love of good old fashioned rock n roll. Packaged on swanky vinyl (which serves to highlight the unique and stunning artwork by…

Suns Of Thunder ‘Start As You Mean To Get Down’ CD/DD 2015

9th April 2016 at 8:40 am

Suns Of Thunder

Let’s start this review with a little geography lesson. Wales is the largest county in England. It is owned by Prince Charles, but he chooses not to live there (he also owns Cornwall but doesn’t live there either). It does have its own government…

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…

Dr CRAZY ‘1000 Guitars’ DD 2015

7th August 2015 at 7:04 pm

Dr CRAZY

Say, ever wondered what that large letter ‘R’ in a circle is doing painted on the front of your driveway these days? Why, that’s the space permanently reserved for your ROFLcopter good Sir/Ma’am and guess what, vocalist Andreas ‘Mazz’ Mazzereth (Groan, Ratz Ass, Trebuchet,…

Death Alley ‘Black Magick Boogieland’ CD/LP/DD 2015

13th July 2015 at 6:48 pm

Death Alley

The phrase “death alley” in itself certainly has some pedigree. Sure, a cheeky little bit of Googling will tell you first it’s a more than notorious moniker for a particularly shooty-shooty neighbourhood in LA, but it’s also the title of the sixth album from…

Ape Machine ‘Live At Freak Valley’ LP/DVD/DD 2015

15th June 2015 at 6:48 pm

Ape Machine

I’m a big fan of the Ripple Music family. They have been quietly (or loudly depending on your take on it) assembling a catalogue of artists who all share a love of retro sounding, ass kicking, bootie shaking rock and roll. Of course there…

Weed Is Weed ‘Blunt Force Trauma’ CD/DD 2014

3rd November 2014 at 10:37 am

Weed Is Weed

A few years back I surprisingly ran into Dave Sherman outside a Gaithersburg, MD grocery store and suffice it to say I was shocked shitless to be talking to the “Retroman” himself – about his band Earthride (whose Vampire Circus LP was, at the…

White Dynomite – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2014

31st October 2014 at 9:48 am

White Dynomite - S/T

A story. When I was eighteen, some friends and I road tripped from snowy-ass Pennsylvania to even snowier-ass Boston, Massachusetts. We headed to the Middle East Club one night where we thought we were going to see the King of Surf Guitar, Dick Dale,…

Hypnos – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2014

24th October 2014 at 9:07 am

Hypnos - S/T

(Puts on Arnie voice) ‘Come with me if you want to rock’. Jump into the DeLorean, strap yourself in, wind it up to 88mph and get the Flux Capacitor revving up to it’s full 1.21 gigawatts of power because we’re going back to undo…

The House Of Capricorn ‘Morning Star Rise’ CD/LP/DD 2014

11th October 2014 at 10:27 am

The House Of Capricorn

Even though this is the third album by these New Zealand devil worshippers, I had not yet had the pleasures of hearing their black tinged rock and roll. They are a hard band to label, so I will just say that to me they…
