CHIMING with crisp twelve-strings, the like of which you last encountered being toted by a McGuinn or a Buck, but also possessed of a thigh-slappin’ Brit-glam silvered groove, Roxy sax raunch, The Fernweh are spanning continents and decades and whirring it all up on their new single, “The Pike” – the very first stomper to …

LIVERPUDLIAN glamour trash punk brothers Generation are teetering on the edge of fratricide in their new video, ground down by the demands of rock ‘n’ roll, by cheap rum – these guys have taste – that ain’t Captain Morgan’s, no way, José. The trials and tribulations of the life of a glam rock duo, all …

WHO ARE Bandicoot? Is the question on your lips, and even their own, if you judge by their social media handle across the various platforms. Their new single for Libertino, “Dark Too Long”, out on February 26th, helps reveal a little more. Out today and embedded below, they’ve certainly got the rock ‘n’ roll; guitars …

TAKING on the all the glorious, skinny, wasted rock’n’roll tradition of the Stooges, the New York Dolls, early Manics, and throwing open a mascara and glam-riffing portal in the centre of their home city, Liverpool, Generation, the brainchild of brothers James and Dean Carne have just dropped their second mint into the fizzy drink of …

Racing out of the starting bocks with a thumping glam stomp, the new single ‘Hot Money’ by Manchester-based Children of the State is a glorious blast of fresh air and attitude.

They’ve shared the video for “Double Denim Hop”, a neon-framed infomercial …

Sydney’s Johnny Hunter are quite a delight – drawing as they do on a long and creditable line of goth-tinged post punk music stretching from Joy Division through to Editors and Interpol. And they do this without resorting to simple cliches or sounding like a mere facsimile of their influences. Their new single, ‘Hollow Man’, …

Missed in the pre-Christmas excitement, ‘Get My Money Back’, the new single from Brisbane’s inimitable Fingerless is a swaggering joy. Opening with a dream-like Gregorian chant with a spacey blur, the song launches into a spectacular, driving rhythm – there’s an attitude-laden tilt infusing psychedelic glam style with a rock’n’roll bluster. It’s The Triffids mixed …

Ahead of their debut album, ‘Interplanetary Class Classics’, which drops on 24th March 2017 on Transgressive Records, Moonlandingz have released a video for their track Black Hanz, and announced details of a UK tour next spring. The band, who first as a fictional band from a fictional town featured on the Eccentronic Research Council’s 2015 …

Perhaps more than at any other point in the history of popular song, the early 70s were a schizophrenic time for rock music, particularly here in the UK, with a sharp contrast between the singles and albums charts. In the album charts, heavyweights like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and a whole host of other hairy …
