Again apologies to you for the delay in getting to this, as it has been hanging around in my email inbox for a few weeks.

Pretty Pistol fire out of the speakers with a sound that immediately has the listener pogoing as the pressured pulsing drum pummels the ears around which a grungy bass and guitar pile on the punches, overarching it all is a superb vocal that is able to draw out the underlaying frustrations with its ranging invective.

A band I am sure I will be coming back to frequently and by way of introduction the last of the four tracks on the EP – Come On.

Queen Zee & The Sasstones – Sissy Fists – Single Review

Queen Zee & The Sasstones is an English new-wave quartet.

Fast establishing themselves on the live circuit their recent début single Sissy Fists can do nothing other than to cement their audience and grow a wider fan-base.

The speakers sound as though they are being filled with crashing rocks as Sissy Fists hurtles in to the room in a fury of strung out guitar and throbbing bass, as an equally ill-tempered drum-kit harrying the audience, with a superlative vocal spitting in the ears. An industrial drum rolling bridge gives the track, which lasts for less than two and a half minutes, room for a razor-wire finale.

Cherokee Death Cats – Read My Lips – Single Review

The Swedish new-wave duo Cherokee Death Cats revealed their latest track a few days ago.

Akin to releasing the steam-valve on a pressure cooker; On hitting play Read My Lips hisses clouds of condensing water that drips over the listener as the electro-beat pulses unerringly in wide loops to the accompaniment of the distinctive vocals of Bea Persson (LaDiDa and Ricket) which is delivered in a fuzzy cloud of garage reverberations, as the listener swivels from the hips on the dance-floor.

The unification of computer driven tick-tock with sprawling vocal echoing inside itself gives the three minutes and six seconds song – something that needs to be put on to immediate loop with the audience looking for an extended 12″ version to equally enjoy.

I have, for a few months now, been meaning to write this article, but time and tide and all that means it is slightly delayed.




Grabbing what appears on cursory glance to be a random selection of noise making things from a bootsale job lot Bloody Death Skull have the ability to turn the abstruse in to music that you just never want to end and despite there being four years of back catalogue – when you reach the conclusion the immediate thought is – please there must be more, somewhere, that I have missed.

The laid back temper seeps like a shot of dopamine in to the brain by which the listener descends like an incoherent rambling addict chasing their next fix as the singular vocals are surrounded by a mix of torques and pressures via instrumentation, percussion and synthesis in a dreamy hypnosis.

Bloody Death Skull produce music which, if the world were a more just place, would be streaming, as part of every day life, across the networks to replace the anodyne wallpaper which currently plasters itself in that space.

I often hear criticism by those who quite evidently only ever listen to music churned out by the factory production line of major labels who lament that music has become turgid and un-inventive. My advice being – any time you hear anyone positing that thought redirect them to Bloody Death Skull.

Cross Wires

News surfaces of the track We Call The Shots (due to be on the album) which will itself be released as a stand alone single on the 21st.

Boot your speakers across the room to ensure they are fully fired as you yank up the volume controls as to not have soundwaves which are bulging the window glass is to be approaching the output from the the wrong direction. Only thereafter worry about the ceiling height and potential damage to the fabric of the roof – as the two and a tad minutes track will have you leaping in delighted pogo with arms raised aloft.
