Travis Pike
Watch Out Woman

Travis Pike has an entire two singles to show for his five decade career in music: seems the man prefers to keep his thing to his native Boston. But! Here we have a previously unreleased single to add to that number, recorded in 1966 but languishing in a film company archive since then. Two wonderful soulful songs, released at l...view item »


The Optic Nerve
Penelope Tuesday

The Optic Nerve were a group making music in 1980’s New York, but you could be forgiven for placing them in the mid-1960s. This is entirely deliberate: the band apparently hated anything synthesised. They didn’t change their minds either, as Penelope Tuesday was recorded as late as 2005, but still maintains ...view item »

The Beatpack
Where The Water Runs Deep

Originally operating between 1987 and 1991, hessian sack clad, hairy, violent Rhythm & Blues pre humans The Beatpack disbanded at the height of their game following their limited but potent output of just one EP and one LP for Screaming Apple Records. Twenty years on and these screeching blues wailing garage punks have reunited, featuring or...view item »

The Thanes
She’s Coming Back To Me

I recall the Thanes from back in the day when I used to peruse Bucketful of Brains magazine as if my life depended on it. Here they are older, wiser and with all their 60’s jangle pop characteristics in place. Its quite astonishing that a band existing in 2013 can sound so much like it was recorded in 1965. Its all jaggedy 12 string, rattl...view item »

Graham Day & The Forefathers
Love Me Lies

Graham Day and The Forefathers feature Graham Day and Allan Crockford from The Prisoners and Wolf Howard, who joined them in The Prime Movers. The trio have disbanded and reformed under various guises releasing a ton of albums over the past 30 years. After reforming in this guis...view item »

The Baron Four
Walking Out

‘Walking Out’ is The Baron Four’s 3rd single, following in the glow of their debut LP. Both tracks are crammed full of energy and confidence. Title track ‘Walking Out’ is a deliberately distorted recording of Mike Whittaker’s balls out, emotional vocal stylings, battling with an unrelenting instrumental track ...view item »

The Galileo 7
One Lie At A Time

Back with a new double AA side 7’’ single and a new line up, The Galileo 7 make their recording debut with ‘One Lie At A Time’. Their sound is a primitive, regressive ruckus with an energy that makes you feel like you’re listening to someone who’s trying to beat their instruments to death in the seventies....view item »

Thee Jezebels
Black Book

Neat 7 inch released by State Records, presenting what I believe to be the first ever release by Thee Jezebels, a sharp garage-punk unit operating from the South-East coast of England. Black Book / Cried Over You releases energy in multiple directions, thumping again and again on the same overdriven chords. Nice!...view item »

The Youth
I’ll Call Your Bluff

Danish rock 'n' roll outfit and prominent suit-wearers The Youth release this new 7" along with their new record 'Nothing But', further documenting their plans for a smooth world domination based around blues and garage rock. On the A-side is "I'll Call Your Bluff', with a gnarly vocal from Lasse, while the other side has "You've Done Me Wrong",...view item »

Groovy Uncle (featuring Suzi Chunk)
Barefoot In The Car Park

Suzi Chunk & Groovy Uncle has to be my favourite band name of the week so far, and I'm enjoying the music on this here 7" too. On side A we've got 'Barefoot In The Car Park', which is a lively bit of soul pop which takes its cues from '60s surf-pop and r'n'b, with big vocal harmonies, bright honking sax licks, reverby surf g...view item »

The Beatpack
I’m Walkin’

Formed from the ashes of two backwater garage bands in 1987, The Beatpack terrorised audiences with their menacing interpretation of rhythm and blues and red-neck, sack-wearing stage shows. This limited 45’’ release from State Records is the band's first recording since they disbanded in 1991. Imagine The Mum...view item »
