Black Strobe - Burn Your Own Church

posted February 13th, 2008 · posted by jas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

Upon reading that Black Strobe successfully fuse “the worlds of dance and rock music”, I was quite excited that this could be a good record. How wrong I was. I don’t think there is anything good about it. from the first grating electronic buzzes, to when the singer’s droning voice kicks in on song two, [...]

Piebald - Accidental Gentleman

posted February 13th, 2008 · posted by jas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

It’s been about a zillion years since I heard this lots name bandied about. What have they been up to? I don’t think I’ve even heard them since MC Lars sampled one of their songs on iGeneration.

According to the press bumf, they have been touring America in a van powered by vegetable oil, which [...]

Anyway, the title of this album gripped me. In a way, [...]

Rydell - Anchors and Parachutes

posted January 3rd, 2008 · posted by alice · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

This is not some grand reunion album but in fact an anthology of one of the UK emo/hardcore scene’s most unlucky bands. Rydell, a band with little hometown support and who’s US tour was planned to start around 11th September 2001. In their favour, they knew Hot Water Music were awesome years before the rest [...]

Hostage Life - Walking Papers

posted September 2nd, 2007 · posted by Edd · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

We’ll get it out of the way quickly: this is my album of 2007 without question. Last year I gave their first album, ‘Sing for the enemy’, a fairly ambivalent review. Lil or Household Name said I’d missed the point of the record. How right he was! Still it took me two months to get [...]
