The US newwave trio Zodiac Panthers revealed a new song recently – Primal Astrology.
On hitting play the listener is immediately drawn to the best of CBGBs on the late ’70s with the carefree low slung guitar and bass combinations pumped along by a busy drumkit with the slurried vocal rounding out the sound.
Appropriately all over in less than two and three quarters, such is its infectious nature the audience finds themselves chanting along with the chorus on first play through.
What more does rock’n’roll need than this jewel I wonder?

The Japanese celtic-folk band Harmonica Creams release the LP Stereotype on the 28th of March.
The first song to surface is the second of the ten on the album – Thirtyy Ears – an instrumental number which showcases their always intriguing blend of celtic-folk with influences from both Southern-blues and the more local traditions to deliver music which is a superlative fusion and east and west.
