The Altered Hours
On My Tongue

I had a polyp on my tongue once. It drove me totally mad. Almost felt like it was pierced and had a stud in it. Anyway the doctor soon got rid of it. So someone has put something on the Altered Hours tongue. A drug perhaps? A midget gem? Anyway whatever it was they make a right old indie racket telling us about it. They have that ace 90s...view item »

Alien She

Art For Blind deliver yet another stellar post-punk missive via thrashy misery-guts Alien She, who match fast shred with miasmic song meltdowns for one weird, hook-heavy package. It is deceptive, what they’re doing; it lets you believe it’s one thing and then it just goes and does another. They move forward with the breakneck jangle ...view item »

Wild Rocket
Dissociation Mechanics

This is possibly one of the best psych rock band names going; breathe it in like fresh, weed-anointed air. Acknowledging the conflict at the heart of their favourite genre -- that bands of their ilk make the blank dot of space sound like a highway of chaos -- Irish band Wild Rocket embrace the meandering, dislocating hallmarks of psychedelia whi...view item »

Put Ears on Yourself

Put Ears On Yourself is the first instalment in what is projected to be a series of 7” showcases for exciting new bands. It includes tracks by Trust Fund, Lower Slaughter, Sissy and the excellent Milk Crimes. Seven inches of lively band action, housed in a screen-...view item »


A musician named ELLLL (that’s four Ls) has been making a few waves in the techno scene lately, apparently being featured on mixes by Karen Gwyer and Truss. Big names. She’s also part of the ‘Gash Collective’, which is a different kind of ‘big name’, lol. This looks like her f...view item »

The Hipshakes

Bakewell buddies and long-running band The Hipshakes are a close-up and sweaty-sounding garage punk proposition, pitched about halfway between those modern American types and original 70’s British stuff. Snake is their 3rd album in 12 months, but is no less energetic for that. Pressed to 180g vinyl and released by...view item »

No Ditching

No Ditching are a new DIY pop punk group from the rich Durham scene, where this sort of thing rules the roost. No Ditching are in fact made up in part of members of Martha, a big Durham deal. But No Ditching are their own band, and Inseparable is their own 7”, wit...view item »

The Altered Hours
In Heat Not Sorry

Debut album from Irish group The Altered Hours, working in that fruitful mould of post-punk with a touch of shoegaze. At its best moments, In Heat Not Sorry is a jumble of shrieking guitars, drawled vocals and thick organ, dragged along by a low-slung rhythm sect...view item »

Gross Net
Gross Net

Some jagged noises from Gross Net. This self-titled release is a tasty three tracker from Belfast's favourite weirdos. Full of reverby guitars, woozy synthesiser and dubbed out vocals. It's like Glen Branca invited Suicide and Throbbing Gristle over for a party and they tried to write a pop song but ended up takin...view item »

September Girls
Talking / Some For Me

More garagey action coming at you with a new single from September Girls (and I won’t spend half the review bleating on about the song of the similar name this time though this does present me with an opportunity to mention our Big Star 2LP record store day thingy, one of many items you can buy...view item »


‘Utopia’ is the sound of punk songs obliterating themselves. Welsh-gone-Leeds-gone-Welsh band Twisted make an irresponsibly fast racket that has nothing to say after two minutes and never thinks about what’s come before; if it says anything, it says nevermind, it says burn after reading. Twisted think in the moment, be...view item »

Hands Up Who Wants to Die
Vega in The Lyre

Hands Up Who Wants to Die have a solid game plan for their insidious noise punk: they play with the same misanthropy and disdain for their fans as McLusky, scream and cry like goths breaking down in public a la the Birthday Party, and let their guitars run the show, as if ...view item »

Little Ease
The Converted

Got another Leeds special here. Actually I’m not familiar with this band so they might not be from Leeds (or I might be at the wrong shows) but it’s recorded by ultra-’Worm MJ (and weirdly enough the singer actually has quite a s...view item »

Let The Man Speak

I’ve got a real soft spot in my hard mechanical heart for Sheffield scamps Wooderson, who here have dropped their debut long-player after knocking about on the live scene around Yorkshire and beyond for seemingly an age. They peddle a blend...view item »

Facel Vega
The Body

I’ve been looking forward to getting this one in the office. Facel Vega are a Leeds-based DIY garagemo combo who belt through their songs with an unironic vigour, and this 15-song opus also comes complete with a really cool sleeve and...view item »


Twisted are a band from round these parts and they offer a rather Northern take on emo. I'm not saying that they yelp on about pie n' peas but they are from round here so there you go. All songs on this single are quite good. The song structures are taut and the musicianship's competent. I hope they don't think I'm being too harsh and start self ha...view item »
