A few weeks ago I caught the sizzling set from Girls in Synthesis at Rough Trade in Nottingham. This week they were back on my home patch so I couldn’t miss the opportunity to see them at The Deaf Institute supporting The Membranes; yet another perfectly executed set with an intensity that’s hard to match. …

LUXEMBOURG’S Canadian-American punk-political duo Francis of Delirium are a band you completely wouldn’t mess with, trust us. They first came onto our radar more than a year ago with “Equality Song”, a righteous roar of the female condition, itself a follow-up to their audacious debut “Quit Fucking Around”; since when they’ve continued to explore themes …

Melbourne outfit Tina and the Hams have released their debut double single ‘WAY” and ‘PetRicHor’: a diverse yet completing engaging double hit. “WAY’ enters the fray with a punky thrashing beat, and yet takes a detour into psychedelia every now and again. It is a visceral, slamming track imbued with anger and frustration: a wall …

With a sonic blast clearing out the spaces between your ears, the consistently exuberant Fangz have just released their new single ‘Won’t Be Me’ – a vibrant slice of scything melodic punk that skates along with an irresistible force and determination. A sky-high chorus and insistent, pounding rhythm makes for something quite exhilarating, like a …

One of Australia’s most beloved surf rock trios Skegss have returned with a heartfelt tribute song for their tour manager, guitar tech, driver and friend, ‘Bunny Man’. In this current state of humanity, having a song written about you might not be the biggest claim – especially if it’s one of loathing or sheer retaliation …

To reinvent yourself is to grow, adapt and mature. Change is an intimidating peril that can reveal the best and worst of most artists. Sydney emo-punk trio Whatever, Forever have overcome hindrances to share their illuminating inventive perception through their new EP ‘Slowly Dying With You’ – a five track culmination of the sensitive and …

COMIN’ atcha out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, garage punksters Century Egg would have absolutely no qualms about leaving you for dead if you so much as cross ’em on the strength of this latest fizzin’ nugget, which they’ve dropped today. Boy/girl vocals, dirty devil-may-care guitars and a ‘Yep, I definitely so will survive’ lyrical self-pride …

SICK to the back teeth of your arse of a job, bare minimum on the table for you to break your back for? Jesus, ain’t it the way. We’ve all been there, all dug out the hell of that kinda job; and here’s the latest single from ragin’ Sussex quintet Ditz, themselves sick of the …

Tonight at Rough Trade, non profit organisation Rock Against Racism Nottingham are hosting London’s Girls In Synthesis. Formed in 2016, they have acquired somewhat of a cult following, and with good reason. If you’re looking for a sound that’s somewhere between something you know really well, and something you’ve never heard before, you don’t have …

Two bands with members that, in one combo or another, have been stalwarts of the punk scene for 40+ years pretty much guarantees that tonight’s gig was going to be one of full on rock n roll packed with plenty of well recognised songs. Vocalist Eugene Butcher formed the short-lived Desperate Measures in his native …
