Gary Suicidal Kids Commando

August 30th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

It’s always good to hear a band that doesn’t obviously fit into any one genre but dark metallic, French hardcore (possibly in that order) sums up Gary Suicidal Kids Commando as well as anything.

Crazy Arm

August 18th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

Because I’m a fool I totally failed to pick up Crazy Arm’s album Born To Ruin and have heard nothing of them until I got my sweaty hands on their single Broken By The Wheel. There’s no other way to say this, but this is very, very good!

NoMeansNo

August 13th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: Live reviews · Reviews

To cut a 30 year story short: NoMeansNo are amazing, have a small but devoted following and they are old. Their tour is even called ‘Old’ and the opening (unreleased) song was called Old; and it’s even possible they are literally three times the age of your favourite band; therefore theatrics and gymnastics were never to be expected…

Smokey Bastard

August 9th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

I must first confess to being massively biased towards Smokey Bastard, as due to a bizarre set of circumstances I toured briefly with them recently and had a bloody awesome time. I think the first thing any of them said to me was “Hi, would you like some beer? We’ve got this huge keg and we’ve got to finish it tonight”, so good times were inevitable.

In The Red

July 31st, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

My first impressions of this CD were that it was gonna be a Hot Water Music-sound-alike, with artwork that was just like Scott Sinclair’s work (who did all of Hot Water Music’s stuff) but tellingly, wasn’t quite as good as his post-cubist style; the blurb with the CD said that In The Red, ‘Would fit [...]

The Zinester’s guide to Portland

July 31st, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: Book reviews · Reviews

A travel guide to Portland, USofA for, well, the kind of people who read Last Hours really; less of a tourist guide, more designed for new residents who want to get the most of the city.

Mostly True: The Story of Bozo Texino

June 20th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: Book reviews · Reviews

ozo Texino is a tag that adorns tens of thousands of box cars all over the American rail system and the hunt for the hobo author – along with other hobo art, first hand stories of train jumping adventures and interviews with railway workers – is what transcends this strange book/zine.

The Loved Ones

June 20th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

I fell in love with The Loved Ones after seeing them live and hearing their first album ‘Keep Your Heart’. It seemed like a perfect example of the pop-punk-with-a-gravely edge stuff Fat Wreck Chords has become famous for, Dillinger 4, NoFX, Strung Out and Strike Anywhere are all decent, but not perfect comparisons as The [...]

Report back from the Anarchist Movement Conference

June 10th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: Articles · Columns

The Anarchist Movement Conference took place recently. But did it fuel enthusiasm and inspiration or did it highlight old divides.

Braindead

April 28th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

Last Hours is, in essence, a loose affiliation of people who like melodic hardcore, so I feel lucky to have got my hands on the new album by one of the most exciting up and coming bands of that genre, Braindead.
