V/A ‘Sweet Times - Volume 2′

Growing up in the 80’s as a young metal head you would often find yourself drawn to the output of a particular label. Certain labels, such as Earache and Peaceville seemed to release albums of a consistent style and level that inspired a certain…

The Heads ‘Everyone Knows That We Got Nowhere’ CD/LP/DD Reissue 2014

18th August 2014 at 9:31 am

The Heads

I shit you not, you goggle-eyed loons, but Bristol’s legendary (yet strangely unsung) psych-heroes The Heads are possibly the definitive uber-cult stoner-psych band of the late 20th/ early 21st century. I have a hunch that possibly the majority of people reading this review have…

Lecherous Gaze

100% RAW, UNCOMPROMISING, KICK-ASS ROCK AND ROLL!!! Really the above line could quite easily comprise the whole review for this Zeta Reticuli Blues as it pretty much says it all…but being a conscientious writer and knowing you will all want to know a little…

Grifter ‘The Return Of The Bearded Brethren’ CD/LP/DD 2014

2nd July 2014 at 9:01 am

Grifter

Music gets a lot of baggage attached these days; but truly great, timeless music always has the weight of conviction behind it. When rock music became one long cathartic therapy session in the nineties, at first it was something raw and challenging to the…

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…

Ragged Barracudas – S/T – 7″/DD 2014

2nd June 2014 at 1:02 pm

King Dude ‘Fear’ CD/LP/DD 2014

30th May 2014 at 8:56 am

King Dude

There’s a corner of the music world that doesn’t quite fit anywhere; it’s not mainstream enough to reside in the Top 40 and it isn’t heavy enough to lurk in the murky depths of metal, yet somehow manages to possess more might and more…

19th May 2014 at 9:55 am

Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell

The old adage “never judge a book by it’s cover” could just as easily apply to albums, and yet the artwork for ‘Check ‘Em Before You Wreck ‘Em’, Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell’s second full length effort, seems to perfectly belie its musical content. The…

HORNSS ‘No Blood, No Sympathy’ LP 2014

9th May 2014 at 10:42 am

HORNSS

I don’t know if it’s the sunshine after the days of torrential rain here or maybe because it’s Friday, but this is what I needed to hear! HORNSS does not beat around the bush, this is high octane, beer drinking music! There is a…
