Catnap zine

January 17th, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: Reviews · Zine reviews

It’s not much, just three folded A4 pages long. The front cover promises ‘boobs’, and I was bitterly disappointed with the lack of these. It’s [...]

Virgins

January 17th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

Sam Johnson (singer/guitarist of New Mexican Disaster Squad) has teamed up with a couple of dudes to bring you a slightly poppier group, Virgins. Think Dillinger 4 meets NMDS. Sam’s voice is still as rusted and crusty as ever and the production really emphasises the dirty punk-rock nature of it, in fact the production is [...]

Minus The Bear

January 17th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

MTB have released 3 albums, 3 EPs, one split and one remix album, but this is their first all-acoustic offering, and very pleasant it is too. Occasionally a band releases an album that leaves you wondering why, as good as it may be, they did it. The Nofx/Rancid split is one example, and this is [...]

January 15th, 2009 · posted by Fred Goodsell · marked as: Interviews

I interviewed political punk band Antillectual on a cold December night after they played an inspiring set in the Cavern Club, Exeter. Antillectual were on tour from the the Nijmegen area in the Netherlands. The three piece play melodic, hard-hitting punk rock in the vein of Propagandhi and Strike Anywhere.
