The Rebel
Riding In The Sun / Why Must I Pay

Country Teasers mainman Ben Wallers is also The Rebel, and it is under this guise that he does some of his most fascinating work. Outsider punk that peels the genre apart and shows you s...view item »

The Rebel
The Five Year Plan

Okay, I'm a little bit won over here before I even put the record on the player. Take it out of the sleeve and you will discover that the blank side of this record has been screenprinted with a cool little picture of a snooker ball, and the side with the songs on has a picture of ...view item »

The Rebel
The Incredible Hulk

We've been long time fans of The Rebel here at t' towers. I'm glad I'm sat down here typing about their new bizzar-a-thon on Junior Aspirin as I've just been sent on a wild goose chase for something and I'm near mental collapse. Firstly, nice to see the juxtaposition of a can of spesh & a big fat preening swastika on the darkly subversive sleeve ar...view item »

The Devil
The Devil

Right bloody rigmarole getting round to reviewing this today. It's been on the back-burner stewing away in my mind all week like the evil delightful little cretin it is. Seemingly the work of ex- Country Teaser Benedict Roger Wallers (currently littering my tape drawer with schizoid lo-f...view item »

The Rebel
Really?

Ben Wallers of the Country Teasers fame cranks out 5 crazy tunes. Edition of 200. 'Tip On' cover with handpasted art. ...view item »

The Rebel
K Rot

Avant-garde rambler Ben Wallers has used a variety of wonderfully obnoxious bands as vehicles for his taunting, such as post-punkers the Country Teasers, but now goes under a new alias: The Rebel. Some ecstatically mumbled vocals are dug deep into the mix of frenetic keys and ramshackle programmed drums, and the result is something like a l...view item »

The Rebel
Aiming Low EP

This week we've got a bunch of records in from a Belgium label called Lexidisque, and they all look pretty interesting. Not got time to mention them all this week due to the amount of things which have arrived this week coupled with staff offness but we wanted to mention 'em as they looks pretty cool. The Rebel makes ridiculous records for menta...view item »

The Rebel
Titrack Luxury Or Bums On A Rock

Esoteric folkpunkshamblecore here from that cult lo-fi derange-bot The Rebel, purportedly made in 1993 (when tapes still sold several squillion copies rather than the 200 max they do now) His sound, for the uninitiated, takes its cues from rickety psycho repeat-o rock; Buttholesy freak-style psychedelia; rudimentary samples; bent cheap keyb...view item »

The Rebel
M.C.C. (Mouthwatering Claustrophobic Changes)

The Rebel did that funny Andrei Tarkovsky-monikered LP what had the guy's wang out on it and now they've got a new one called MCC (Mouthwatering Claustrophobic Changes). It's all over the place but literally loads of fun. The first tune's an Kraftwerkian electro-tronica party banger and elsewhere you've got crazy Radiophonic-y analogishness, bad ke...view item »

The Rebel
The Race Against Time Hots Up

Renegade madman and Country Teasers mouthpiece Ben "The Rebel" Wallers returns with another collection of skewed, irresponsible and totally ridiculous pop music of the highest calibre. Everyone should have some idea of what to expect from The Rebel... backward, experimental and highly entertaining outsider indie pop is the impression I always go...view item »

The Rebel
Northern Rocks Bear Weird Vegetable

'Northern Rocks Bear Weird Vegetable' is a new offering from The Rebel, an alter-ego of Ben Wallers who you might know as the singer of the Country Teasers. It concerns a bunch of strange concepts loosely based on tales of a fucked up dystopian future. Ben Wallers narration is totally bizarre yet, as you can imagine, highly amusing. You've got tune...view item »
