Zatopeks

February 27th, 2008 · posted by jas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

There was a time when it seemed all the Household Name bands were an unchanging entity – Adequate Seven, Lightyear, Captain Everything!, Capdown etc. would always be touring and there was a HHN ‘type’. Recently, however, the label seems to have undergone some changes with a lot of the older bands leaving or splitting up, [...]

Pama International

February 27th, 2008 · posted by jas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

Pama International know how to do a good job finishing an album, there’s no doubt about it. This is no exception, a pleasure to listen to. Produced to incredible standard giving the reggae-dub-ska infusion a fully rounded sound, this long-running collective pelts out a bunch of chilled out melodies.
Around for a while now, Pama show [...]

Mustard Plug

February 27th, 2008 · posted by jas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

Once I got Mustard Plug’s ‘Pray For Mojo’ for Christmas and it immediately became one of my favourites. I listened to it a lot. Then I bought ‘Big Daddy Multitude’ from a second hand shop and acquired ‘Yellow #5’ on 12”. I was so happy. But one day I stopped listening to them and they [...]

CourseOverGround

February 27th, 2008 · posted by jas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

I love it when things come out of Eastern Europe, as my music seems to be saturated with British and American music. This probably meant I gave a little more time to COG than I otherwise would have.
They are a noise band, with drums dominating and punctuating throughout the songs and guitars distorting somewhere behind. [...]

The Shadowcops

February 27th, 2008 · posted by jas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

The Shadowcops talk about being ‘rock’ quite a lot in the bit of paper that came with this CD, but that’s not exactly strictly true. They sound somewhere between riff-heavy punk rock and just ‘rock’ to me.
Amongst their influences they cite The Wildhearts, Dead Kennedys, and The Living End and I think they give you [...]

Babar Luck

February 20th, 2008 · posted by jas · marked as: Live reviews · Reviews

First on tonight is The Casual Terrorist, a bit of a scruffy punk kid who sings about anarchism and how being an anarchist is great. Despite not entirely being ‘down’ with his sentiments, the set is enjoyable, and his constant funk-poking at the right wing is something that can be enjoyed by everyone. Raising a [...]

Heroic Doses

February 20th, 2008 · posted by jas · marked as: Live reviews · Reviews

Heroic Doses last ever gig took place one chilly Saturday evening in Kingston. Despite it taking ages to get there, nothing was going to stop me. The fiver entry got you a gig poster, and a free copy of the Doses/Black Tax split. Pretty good.
Bastion were on first. They got up wearing masks of all [...]
