Muck and the Mires
Greetings from Muckingham Palace

The winners of Steven Van Zandt’s MTV show contesting a national battle of the bands, retro garage-rock outfit Muck And The Mires are having an incredibly productive 2020 despite the pandemic. ‘Greetings From Muckingham Palace’ is a brutally concise collection of fast-paced, melodic nuggets that follows up on the ‘Muckus Maximus’ EP from earlier this year.

MFC Chicken
Fast Food & Broken Hearts

Junk food-themed rock ‘n’ rollers MFC Chicken announce their fifth studio album, Fast Food & Broken Hearts. Formed a decade ago in a flat on Holloway Road above a chicken shop that gave them their name, they’ve established a great reputation as a live act for their riotous shows, something that this album captures perfectly.

Various
The New Testament

Dirty Water’s latest compilation The New Testament seems single-handedly dedicated to keeping the primal, destructive thrills of rock’n’roll alive, collecting six bands from countries ranging from France to Japan and inviting them to contribute a brand new track as well as a golden oldie. On Dirty Water.

Les BOF!
Voila!

Is there a more French sounding album than Voila by Les BOF! If there is, I haven't seen it. And yet, this band are Scottish?? I have never felt so betrayed. 60s influenced garage rock with a good ear for melody from these liars. Inexplicably it all works very, very well. Les BOF!'s energy is utterly compelling.

The Scaners
The Scaners II

The Scaners return with a second album of breakneck retro-futurist garage-punk… From space! Every track is within spitting distance of two minutes duration, and the vibe is kind of The Ramones piloting a UFO, with a touch of Man Or Astro-Man surf fun. The Scaners II is released by Dirty Water, and it is a lot of fun.

Weird Omen
Surrealistic Feast

Weird Omen are a trashy garage/rock ‘n’ roll band from France. Whilst they don’t like to be compared to other bands, and generally can’t be compared, mentioning bands such as Morphine, New York no wavers James Chance and The Contortions, The Kinks and The Cramps may give you a useful insight into what you’re about to hear. Surrealistic Feast is their third album. LP and CD on Dirty Water.

Snakerattlers
All Heads Will Roll

Brilliant back to basics rock and roll from Yorkshire group Snakerattlers, exiling anything approaching excess flab and instead focusing on an exhilarating fusion of rockabilly, garage, and punk. Its electrifying in its bare boned reductionism; snotty, sweaty, and devious, this is shameless retro worship but it would be hard to deny the sense of mayhem and joy.

Mark Sultan
Let Me Out

Mark Sultan is described as an entrepreneur on his Wikipedia page for some reason. No citation. There are citations for his being part of the messy garage rock set playing with the likes of Black Lips and King Khan. And Let Me Out is messy garage rock. Guitars, heartfelt vocals, and a sense things could fall apart any second.

Johnny Mafia
Princes De L’amour

French garage guys Johnny Mafia announce themselves to the wider world with second album Princes De L’amour, a high-energy rush of frenzie punk underpinned with solid songcraft. It’s not the most original of sounds, but it is hard to deny the bouncing, grinning appeal of garage-punk done right like this. Out on Dirty Water.

Archie and The Bunkers
Archie and The Bunkers

Archie & The Bunkers are a pair of teenage brothers from Cleveland, Ohio. Emmett and Cullen are just 14 and 16 respectively. Their music takes its influences from the organ based jazz of the legendary Jimmy Smith and mixes it with the rock and punk of bands such as The Dead Boys, The Damned and The Stooges. The pair’s frenetic energy makes a sound greater than the sum of its parts. Archie & The Bunkers eponymous debut is available on vinyl LP and CD
  • CD (DWC1083CD)

The Jack Cades
Music For Children

The Jack Cades are a supergroup formed from bands in and around the current Kent garage/freakbeat scene such as The Baron Four, The Embrooks, The Gallileo 7 and The Missing Souls. They weren’t going to be a band due to other musical commitments until they heard Music For Children and decided The Jack Cades were worth making time for. LP and CD on Dirty Water.
  • CD (DWC1102CD)

The Darts
The Darts

Not the late 70s rockabilly throwbacks notable for such hits as 'Daddy Cool' but an all grrrrl (their words) garage/psych rock supergroup featuring members of The Love Me Nots and The Dollyrots. Expect incendiary garage rock riffs, group harmonies, lashings of fuzz bass, organ. The lot. The Darts is released by Dirty Water. Get down.
  • Vinyl LP (DWC1099LP)

Archie and The Bunkers
Songs From The Lodge

Sibling duo Archie And The Bunkers drop their second LP of organ-billy fun. With one brother on the organ and the other on drums, the pair make a pretty basic racket on Songs From The Lodge, but they do it nicely. Sort of like The Ramones at a funfair. ‘Laura’, unfortunately, is not a Scissor Sisters cover.

Hollywood Sinners
Khöme Kakkä

Garage-punk, eh. Never fails. The latest to join the time-honoured tradition of snotty youngsters thumping tubbs and shredding licks are Spanish rockers Hollywood Sinners. But … what’s that you say? They’ve been going since 2002? All three of the band’s members are nearing middle-age? Ahh well, I guess that’s just proof that rock ‘n’ roll never dies. Anyway, Khöme Kakkä is a fun bilingual romp.

The Cavemen
The Cavemen

The eponymous debut from New Zealand natives who moved themselves to London, The Cavemen is a short sharp burst of joyously childish and catchy punk rock. Song subjects range, as you can probably imagine, from drug abuse to masturbation and general fast-living debauchery. Blood red coloured vinyl LP and CD, reissued on Dirty Water.
  • CD (DWC1096CD)

Wild Evel and the Trashbones
Digging My Grave

Wild Evel and the Trashbones are a knockabout good-times garage-punk gang from Austria, with lots of lessons learned from both the original 60’s garage rockers and Billy Childish’s trash aesthetic revitalisations. Digging My Grave is a driving messy fuzzy torrent of leathery guitar action, released by Dirty Water.

King Salami and The Cumberland Three
Goin' Back To Wurstville

Fans of rockabilly, sausage references and classic rhythm & blues will find plenty to love in King Salami and the Cumberland 3. The all-over-the-world-via-London band are full of high octane fun and cool rock’n’roll like they used to make it, delivered with an extra punky vigour. Goin’ Back To Wurstville is released by Dirty Water.
  • CD (DWC1088CD)

The Arrogants
No Time To Wait

The Arrogants are a French group whose press release seems to position their choice to make garage / blues rock as a radical act. Hmmm, not sure about that. Fair play in following through on their interests though: great fun is clearly being had with No Time To Wait, the group’s debut full-length. Released by Dirty Water.

Muck And The Mires
Dial M For Muck

‘Dial M For Muck’ is the latest from Boston’s garage rocker’s Much And The Mires. Teaming up with Kim Fowley of The Runaways and Jim Diamond of The White Stripes, the album features 12 songs reminiscent of The Beatles circa 1964 and the Ramones in 77. The result is a pleasing mixture of hit-worthy British Invasion style '60s bubblegum and '70s power-pop.

The Youth
Nothing But...

The Youth like to wear suits like the National and make wild, outrageous rock tunes, unlike the National. Inspired by the vibe of the 60s, and sharing a reverence for blues and garage rock, The Youth have made 'Nothing But...', a collection of pop songs that exist so that they can fulfil their lifelong dream: to wear suits. Or make music, whatever.

The Kneejerk Reactions
The Indestructible Sounds of...

This raw rhythm’n’beat garage-rock’n’roll combo, headed up by the ubiquitous veteran rocker, Sir Bald Diddley (aka Hipbone Slim), delivers super rough, tough and wild mid-’60s inspired sounds that are just about as frantic as a pack of dogs in a lamp post factory. It’s British beat at its best, loaded with grab-your-throat guitar riffs, snarling vocals, wailing harp and much maraca shaking -- proper raw-as-you-like freakbeat, inspired by the likes of the Pretty Things, Kinks, Downliners Sect, Them, Birds, Stones, Yardbirds, Sorrows, Small Faces, Outsiders, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Link Wray, Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Sonics, Wailers, Larry & the Bluenotes and the Remains.
