New Year Ninety 2018 – 80 to 71

For those new to the annual New Year Ninety – every two hours and two minutes on the 1st of January from 05:05 until 23:23 UTC a section of the chart is published, a chart based on the Readership activity on the associated sites over the year – resulting in the Ninety bands.

Steve Schuster - New Year Ninety 2018

Steve Schuster

Whilst reflective of you as a reader of the site, it is, as you will note, not a chart in which anyone is able to vote, rather calculated on various algorithms, which do take in to account whether a band has only been featured first in December as opposed to in January or earlier, amongst other factors. This is intended to make the chart a more genuine representation of the readership and based on actual events, not who is the band with the most active fanbase… from  80 – 71…

The Pistol Mystics – Deep Water – Audio

The US new-wave quartet The Pistol Mystics release the EP Ammunition on the 1st of January 2018.

The Pistol Mystics

The Pistol Mystics

A four track release (available on bandcamp) that launches in to the room akin to a trapped bear freeing itself with combinations of 60s’ rock infused bluesy guitars roaring through the speakers, while snarling percussion charges through the ears with a snaffling bass delivering the power to the compositions, as the deftly controlled vocal delivers the invective.

The Pistol Mystics have, in their début EP, been able to deliver songs of compressed rage, which are kept on a tight leash and the listener minds themselves of early Eddie And The Hotrods and I look forward to hearing more by the quartet.
