GWAR – Blood Of Gods (Metal Blade)

GWAR – Blood Of Gods (Metal Blade)

It can’t have been an easy decision to carry on after the tragic death of Dave Brockie aka Oderus Urungus at all. After all he was the alien in chief behind GWAR since they formed even if Sleazy Martini tried to steal the credit and.. Read More
Lecherous Gaze – One Fifteen (Tee Pee)

Lecherous Gaze – One Fifteen (Tee Pee)

The second I started to listen to this album, I thought “California”. Lecherous Gaze, who quote Chuck Berry and The Damned as liked artists, in fact come from Oakland, so the grittier end of the state. Intriguingly, they describe their own music as “Psycho-delic shred-tastic.. Read More
Lemmy Kilmister: Life Beyond Motorhead Collateral Damage -Alan Burridge (Iron Pages Books)

Lemmy Kilmister: Life Beyond Motorhead Collateral Damage -Alan Burridge (Iron Pages Books)

It’s a bit surreal to be writing a review which has been at least co-created by someone who has had such a large part to play in the formative teenage years of my life. I’m not actually talking about Lemmy at this juncture – but.. Read More
The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing – Not Your Typical Victorians (S/R)

The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing – Not Your Typical Victorians (S/R)

First off, this is the last time I will type out The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing; from now on they are TMTWNBBFN, an initialism that will save both my fingers from unnecessary work, and my keyboard from getting too worn out!.. Read More
The Damned – Fiendish Shadows & Punk Oddities And rare Tracks (Westworld)

The Damned – Fiendish Shadows & Punk Oddities And rare Tracks (Westworld)

Oh look…it’s your old mates The Damned, back with something…erm…old! Wot?…well you weren’t expecting a new record were ya? Instead, Westworld Recordings have dusted down and re-released the live album ‘Fiendish Shadows’ and the compilation album ‘Punk Oddities And Rare Tracks’ from our very own.. Read More
EVO ALGY - Damned Unto Death (High Roller)

EVO ALGY – Damned Unto Death (High Roller)

EVO (Paul Evans/Paul Evo) is the guy from UK non-conformists Warfare and ALGY (Ward) is the original Tank bassist and founder. Based on their past history, I would expect a brash and harsh release, which you get in places. The release has 6 tracks, 3.. Read More
The Damned – Another Live album (Southworld Recordings)

The Damned – Another Live album (Southworld Recordings)

Well this one was hardly going to be rocket science to review. After all it’s not like there’s not been enough Damned gigs that I have witnessed over the years both in the flesh and indeed on album. With the band having been going since.. Read More
English Dogs – The Thing With Two Heads (Candlelight)

English Dogs – The Thing With Two Heads (Candlelight)

A very good album title, as The English Dogs are very much a band with two heads, with two different versions of them out there. Forming as a punk band in the early 80’s and playing with the likes of Discharge and GBH they started.. Read More
Peter Pan Speedrock – Buckle Up And Shove It! (SPV)

Peter Pan Speedrock – Buckle Up And Shove It! (SPV)

Sometimes it’s good to take a punt on something new. Usually I get the death / thrash / grind stuff to review (avoiding anything ‘prog’ like it’s a saltwater crocodile with AIDS ……..and a flick knife)  but whether it was  the change in climate or.. Read More
Tribute To Ron Asheton – Featuring Iggy & The Stooges (Wienerworld /MVD)

Tribute To Ron Asheton – Featuring Iggy & The Stooges (Wienerworld /MVD)

Those Cemetery Gates just keep yawning open and since I reviewed “that book” about those that passed through them and those who survived against the odds I seem to keep having more artists who would be entirely relevant turning up on my review pile. Iggy.. Read More
Black Flag – Nervous Breakdown & Jealous Again (SST/ Wienerworld )

Black Flag – Nervous Breakdown & Jealous Again (SST/ Wienerworld )

Without Black Flag most of the music you like would not exist! Sweeping statement maybe but as far as punk and hardcore is concerned they were one of the forerunners that were responsible for defining the style, certainly as far as over in the USA.. Read More
Murder Junkies – A Killing Tradition (Wienerworld)

Murder Junkies – A Killing Tradition (Wienerworld)

With the opening words “C’mon let’s see some tits” setting us up for half an hour of sleazy filth and depravity I couldn’t help but shake my head a bit. What was I expecting though, I did after all volunteer to review the new album.. Read More
