The:Egocentrics ‘Mystic Initiation’ CD 2008

19th February 2009 at 9:21 am

The:Egocentrics

Jam band! Two words that really should strike fear into the hearts of most self respecting music fan. It brings to mind painful images of a bunch of middle aged acid casualties noodling away in some ego massaging Grateful Dead style wank off for…

Stone Turner

There are some talented fuckers out there!!! Jack Dickinson has been kicking around the scene for some time and never seems to get the breaks. After playing in a couple of ill fated bands in Cornwall he relocated to London and formed the heavy,…

Oaks ‘bravo!’ CD 2008

12th February 2009 at 8:57 am

Oaks

Holy Buzz!!! I’m finding myself increasingly amazed nowadays how many frankly amazing bands are out there operating without any kind of label backing who should be huge if there was any justice in the world. When the pages of Kerrang, Rocksound are choc full…

26th January 2009 at 9:01 am

A Death Cinematic

It’s always good to see artists put a bit of effort into their work and this new self-released double album by A Death Cinematic certainly isn’t lacking in the blood, sweat and tears department. When head honcho (‘Mr Edwards sir’) said this release had…

Electric Red ‘Ion’ CDEP 2008

16th January 2009 at 8:43 am

Electric Red

The note I got with this release from Belfast based unit claims they’ve only been around for about six months and recorded this three track release themselves in their rehearsal room. Now, call me cynical, but either these guys are lying through their arses…

Berserkowitz ‘Gritfarm’ CDEP 2008

18th September 2008 at 9:09 am

Berserkowitz

Let’s face it sludge fans, if these lot were from the States there’d be far more of a buzz about them. It just so happens that they’re from Rotherham, South Yorkshire, NOT New Orleans, Louisiana. And they’re much fuckin’ cooler for it. So say…

Samsara Blues Experiment - S/T - CD 2008

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion copulating with the Sontaran Experiment? Nah mate. And if you’re wondering what ‘Samsara’ is, then I can tell you, oh sweet child of the forest. It means to flow and to pass from states of being, to wander the spiritual…

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…
