Rentokill

May 15th, 2005 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: Interviews

Rentokill are one of those bands that come suddenly from nowhere and kick ass all around. I received their CD by mail but hadn’t expected too much. Too bad! When I finally listened to it I was totally impressed. I hadn’t received such a great record for a very, very long time and it doesn’t happen very often to me to be impressed “just” by the album.

Sleater Kinney

May 15th, 2005 · posted by natalie · marked as: Interviews

Sleater-Kinney are Corin Tucker, Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss and to my mind they are legends of the indie rock scene. Sleater-Kinney have been in existence for over a decade now and in that time some of them have become mothers and divorcees.

Smoke or Fire

May 15th, 2005 · posted by anon · marked as: Interviews

Smoke or Fire appeared out of nowhere in my life sometime in February (2005), with the arrival of their debut on Fat Wreck Chords – Above the City. For several weeks their blend of angular pop music, and simple lyrics, didn’t leave my CD player, so it was only logical that when they came to London to play Deconstruction on Mayday that I was going to catch up with them

Soledad Brothers

May 15th, 2005 · posted by anon · marked as: Interviews

The Spitz will never be a likely venue for the energetic force of punk rock but thankfully the blues festival in April brought with it the inflammable talents of The Soledad Brothers: Johnny Walker (guitar, vocals & harmonica), Oliver Henry (guitar, saxophone & vocals) and Ben Swank (drums & percussion).

The Dwarves

May 15th, 2005 · posted by Chris Lever · marked as: Interviews

Outsider has never been an alien word to these guys. Since I first caught earshot of the band on Punk ‘O’ Rama III and the other truly great Epitaph bands like Zeke and Osker, I started to sense that these guys didn’t really fit in. Therefore I wasn’t surprised to hear that their brief stint at the prolific Sub Pop Records was made somewhat awkward when their guitarist He Who Cannot Be Named thought it would be good for a laugh to fake his own death.

The Spectacle

May 15th, 2005 · posted by anon · marked as: Interviews

The Spectacle is my favourite band in the world. My band/ record label mate had met a few of them some years ago while touring Europe. They were fifteen or sixteen year old kids then. A few years later our band was touring Europe again and we played a few shows with them. My aforementioned band-mate kept in contact with the band and when they finally released a record in 2003, some copies of it soon showed up in our PO box. We put it on my turntable and were blown away.
