Essex based Asylums, release their second album Alien Human Emotions. Moodier than their first album but no less energetic, their press release compares into a swig of Jagermeister. I guess that makes it strong, dark, and not to everyone's tastes? Released on Asylum's own record label, Cool Thing.

Asylums bring their high energy, hardcore-influenced, post-punk to vinyl 12”, and they’ve brought BAIT, Petty Phase and The Horse Heads with them. Cool Thing Records presents Alternative Occupations EP is a label sampler that captures their DIY attitude, with each band taking a different approach but sharing a love of ferocius riffs and shouting.
Asylums are new and hungry, apparently born of a need to get on with it and make stuff, regardless of outside support. Killer Brain Waves is a fast and thrashy pop-punk that has some feelings about the state of things: and boy is it going to tell you about those feelings… loudly! CD and vinyl editions on Cool Thing, with remarkable brain-microwave sleeve art.
DIY pop-punk from Southend. Asylums don’t waste much time on this 7” EP, with three tracks that are not much more (and sometimes quite a bit less) than two minutes long. High energy stuff! And they are to be applauded for making paradoxically making this a triple A side record, because why not? Wet Dream Fanzine is released by Cool Thing.
