There are occasions when social media genuinely does make the world a smaller and more interconnected place. Someone I connect with in Australia live streamed a couple of tracks by Dane Overton and the Joy Williams Band as they played on Saturday – resulting in a new connection being made with the band and via instant messaging here we all are, connected by the internet regardless of our geographic location.

Word arrives of a single coming out in March and an EP due for release in June, news of which I will update as they surface.

As a brief introduction – based on a two and a half minute live performance – of a band I look forward to hearing much more of during the year – the song The Only Way.

The brief tracks, rarely reaching three minutes, scour the walls with combinations of warping guitar, harmonica, unstoppable percussion and bruising vocals.

The last of the dozen tracks on One In Hate is No Prom.


One in the Hate – Black Mekon is available on iTunes.*

Knuckle – Hannah – Audio

The English dirty-blues duo Knuckle will be releasing the EP Strangers and Freaks on the 8th of April.

Although it was back in 2014 that Knuckle last featured – Hannah – from the forthcoming EP – reminds of who is being listened to, as the music cleans out the innards of the speakers as it emerges into the room with its gnarly, contorted guitar which, much like a briar pipe cleaner, distorts its shape as it displaces any debris lodged therein.
