    TERRY & LOUIE

    A Thousand Guitars

    [engl] Formed from the ashes of one the most tragic and beloved Punkbands in recent memory, The Exploding Hearts, they are “Terry & Louie” AKA Terry Six and King Louie Bankston. And they are back! And with a brand new fulllength album entitled “… A Thousand Guitars”. Terry & Louie are THE premier songwriting partnership duo. Much like Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds (Rockpile), Chin and Chapman, and Boyce and Hart before them. They combine theheart and soul from their predecessors with catchy upbeat blasts “It’s All Mine” and the title track, “…A Thousand Guitars” also solid jukebox powerhousehits like “Pink Razor Blade” and “Rebel Ways” and bring it into the now withgrit and rawness blitzing to the forefront. Picking right back up wherethey left off from their days with The Exploding Hearts, “…A Thousand Guitars” has those huge, sonic signature guitar sounds and soulful vocal performances, includes tried and true bone crushers like, “(I’m) Looking For A Heart” – Record Turnover. “…A Thousand Guitars” is clearly a heavy contender for anyrecord collection.

    GYMSHORTS

    Knock Knock

    [engl] This four-piece punk dynamo from Rhode Island, is everything you want in a punk band: brutal, unrefined, and absolutely thrashing. They are exactly how you’d expect them to be offstage; upbeat, hilarious, New England punks who’d like nothing more than to goof off and make music with their friends. However that impression partially collapses when they mount the stage, strap into their instruments, and reveal their sludge-coated surf riffs and drums that sound both wildly anarchic and assertively tight.

    ABORTED TORTOISE

    An Beach

    [engl] ABORTED TORTOISE’s debut album, An Beach, is just about everything you’d hope for from a Western Australian punk record: 15 tracks, half-hour run time, lots of sun-struck goon-flecked thrashing and a salty scintilla of uncynical surf rock. ... With the lo-fi immediacy of The Sonics, the faux-dumbass sensibilities of the Ramones and the sly musical inventiveness of Dead Kennedys, Aborted Tortoise definitely recall a lot of crucial punk touchstones. Meanwhile I’m also reminded of Melbourne brat-boys Ausmuteants, and more specifically, ‘90s Perth band The Feends - bonkers treble-heavy riffing with post-Ventures noodling and snotty sandgroper vocals. Plus, tongues balanced delicately in cheeks.... Aborted Tortoise might make most sense in the live setting: the visceral impact of a band going ballistic is most logically received there-and-then, with the sweat beads landing in your eyeballs. But like that recent winning album from Boat Show, An Beach does a stellar job of bottling the mayhem. Take it home, uncork it, let it breathe and then scull it like the filthy little demon you are.

    SUEVES, THE

    Change Your Life

    [engl] The Sueves blast forth with a blizzard of treble-soaked noise, and once Joe's spidery guitar, along with Rob's vicious bass lines, and Andy's shambolicly acute drumming really kick in together, they just explode, and they've clearly got that elusive “tension” so many bands just can't get right. We're extremely excited to get this debut 7' out into the world, so don't sleep on this raw and trashy debut single from one of Chicago's top bands, busting right out of the gate and right into your dreams and nightmares.

    PEACH KELLI POP

    Gentle Leader

    L.A.'s DIY sunshine punk favorites um die ehemalige White Wires Schlagzeugerin sind zurück mit dem vierten Album. Die neuen Songs gehen weiter weg vom bisherigen Ramones-Einfluss und der frühen Garage-One-Women-Nummer und lassen zunehmend Inspirationen von Powerpop und 80s-90s feedbackridden Postpunk-Momenten zu. Quirrlig und catchy geht es aber allemal zu und stellenweise sorgt der Mean Jeans Drummer Andrew Bassett dabei für den passenden Beat. Erstmalig stammen die Songs übrigens nicht solo aus der Feder von Allie Hanlon sondern entstanden als gemeinsames Bandwriting.

    BIRDCLOUD

    Dode

    [engl] Meet Jasmin Kaset and Makenzie Green, two nice girls who met at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, that's about an hour east from Nashville, Tennessee. They started a country duo that maybe not your usual slick production Nashville sound that gained mainstream popularity all over the world. Birdcloud is also not really something you can call Outlaw country although they play with elements like satire and tackle tough topics with a toungue-in-cheek kind of way. They've been featured in magazines like Rolling Stone and Vice, and because their music and appearance is not quite country but also not really punk, its kinda hard to define a genre that would fit to the explicit lyrics in their songs… wanna hear some of their songtitles from the double album called Singles Only, with they bare backs on the front sleeve? Here we go… “Fuck you Cop” “Saving myself for Jesus” “I like black guys” “Washin' my big ol' pussy” “I cant stand up (I'm fine)” Okay, I think you get the picture. We saw them late 2017 when they opened for New York Rockers DIRTY FENCES, and we were so blown away that we spent the rest of the evening humming their tunes whilst sipping whiskey at the bar… Now, here we are in the lucky position to present their new (and first!!!) real vinyl single, a classic two song 45 limited to only 500 copies. The band will have these up for sale at their merch both soon, when they travel through the bars and venues of Europe this July.

    SLANDER TONGUE

    [engl] Debut single by this all star band from Berlin, Germany, with members of various garage/punk bands like Bikes, Primitive Hands, Modern Pets just to name a few. Recorded in November 2017, engineered by Toby Lill Hazelwood and mastered by Tim Warren. Two cuts that make you think of the Stones on a trip to Garageville, cool as ice rock and roll with moloko +.

    PATSYS RATS

    Singles

    [engl] 
    In the bands short years so far PATSY'S RATS have been very productive when it comes to putting out singles on various labels all over this globe. You should of course track down all of them, collect them and play them when you are DJing at your favorite club, someone's birthday party or when you are day drunk on weekends. Singles are great! I know that – and you know that. But SINGLES COMPILATIONS are great too! Expecially if the singles have a constant high level like those released from PATSY'S RATS – and you don't have to stop dancing to flip the sides or put on another 45! “Rock n Roll Friend” and “Hard Time Karen” appear on their first record, released in summer 2016 on La-Ti-Da Records. “It’s Gonna Hurt” was intended to be on the single as well but there was not enough space on the vinyl... “Burning Honey” and “Nowhere Close” appear on the second single, which was released on Dig! Records in fall 2016. “Empty Bottle” and “Let's Stay Up All Night” were recorded in the same session and appeared on a limited square hand cut record released by Super Fan 99 Records. All above songs also appeared on a cassette on Burger Records. “More Than This” is a Roxy Music cover, it appeared on a digital only compilation on Super Fan 99 Records in summer 2017, it's a collection of covers that derive from Sofia Coppola films.

Die erste Single (diese) beginnt mit dem Midtempo-Scorcher "No Action". Nach ein paar Sekunden findet man sich in den 90er Jahren wieder - sloppy, trashy Garagepunk mit simplen Refrain. Danach geht´s weiter mit der Control Freaks-Version des berühmtesten Protex-Songs " I can only dream". Hit after hit!

    MORDBUBEN AG

    Bleib Blöd

    Auszug aus den Trashrock Archives über Punk in Österreich von Al Bird Dirt: "Sensationell schleißiger Sound!" meint Götz Schrage, in den frühen Achtzigern Musikredakteur beim "Wiener" und Blümchen-Blau-Keyboarder, über die Aufnahmen der Mordbuben AG. "Ich kann überhaupt nicht sagen, was das Geheimnis der Mordbuben war. Aber es gab eines. Und das war, daß sie so einen hatscherten Sound gehabt haben." Fürwahr, mit heutigen Ohren klingen die Outputs der Mordbuben AG weniger wie Punk denn wie eine zugedröhnte Mischung aus Hard Rock und Power-Pop. Das wirklich Spezielle an dieser Band war ihr harter Live-Sound, ihr Böse-Buben-Image und ihr Rocker-Auftreten in button-übersäten Leder-Jacken. Ihre tighten Arrangements räumten der Amateurhaftigkeit des Punk zwar keinen Platz ein, hoben dafür allerdings dessen Rock´n´Roll-Wurzeln nochmals deutlich hervor. Die Punks von Wien zollten ihnen jedenfalls hohen Respekt. Und wenn man sich die Mordbuben AG in etwa wie die österreichischen Dictators vorstellt und dazu noch die Beheimgasse als das CBGB´s von Wien, dann funktionieren auf wundersame Art und Weise auch Mordbuben-Plattenveröffentlichungen als authentische Artefakte der ersten österreichischen Punk-Generation. Nachdem sie dem "Wiener Blutrausch"-Sampler drei Songs beigesteuert hatten, erblickte ihre erste 7"-Single das Licht der Welt.

    TEAMSTERS, THE

    Sharp Suited S.O.A.G.

    [engl] The Teamsters haven't released anything since September 2014, with the exception of a demo on a compilation tape released over in Chicago. Their line-up of drummers changed drastically over the last 18 months, with the likes of Bruce Brand stepping in before leaving in March of this year. That's not to say that the group haven't been recording and writing profusely, they never stop in fact. They declare that they enough for 2 LPs, but their refusal to compromise on the sound they strive for has left them re-recording and mixing dozens of tracks. Intent on making a truly great record. In the meantime they were happy enough to release a couple of tracks for a single on Bachelor Records. The songs are co written by the bands guitarist and bass player Tom and Dan, and we were happy enough to put them out. It marks a departure from their earlier ramshackle days as a trash punk outfit and into the finer details. 'Sharp Suited S.O.A.G' is a mocking portrayal on a man who focuses his life on clothes, where money is no object. The B side 'Why Do You Wanna Do That?' is your standard song of heartbreak, nothing much to elaborate on there, but its new and its exciting. This release is limited to 500 copies, housed in a cardboard disco sleeve (two holes). Artwork done by Tom H. Wing.

    MISS CHAIN & THE BROKEN HEELS

    Uh Uh / Standing The Night

    [engl] It’s been quiet for some time for MISS CHAIN ND THE BROKEN HEELS, the extensive touring after their second album (The Dawn, released by Burger, Bachelor and Tre Accordi), band members went their own way to persue solo careers, starting a booking agency, buidling a studio, and just taking a breath, italian style. After few months things started to get together again, they did some shows in the spring of 2016 and baboom: Here is their new classic two song single, fresh and new, as if there hasnt been some kind of hiatus. You can easily hear it exactly 1 second after you let the needle drop on the Side A track, after few chords Miss Chain and the gang ooozes a warm feeling into your head and heart! Hell, they are back, with all the goodtime melodies enriched with their typical melancholy vibe. While the first track is a classic uptempo powerpop tune, the flipside presents a slower hipshaker, and although the velocity has been taken out this one is still a fine, mellow mood maker that leaves you hungry for more!

    SPACE RAFT

    Rubicon

    [engl] The hallmark of a great band is its ability to progress, to change from record to record. Even a brilliant debut cannot sustain a group throughout their entire career. Thankfully for music fans, Space Raft has that ability in spades. Hints of the best of '60's and '70's rock are combined with the dynamism and immediacy of modern post-punk to produce an ever-shifting backdrop of melodic innovation that moves forward several leagues from their self-titled debut.Their new album "Rubicon" (out April 15 on Dusty Medical Records in the USA and Bachelor Records in Europe) takes the positive attributes of their self-titled debut and expands on every aspect of their sound; from pop-rock hooks (opener "Borrowed Time," standalone single "Paper Airplanes") to drifting melodies ("Vacation") to euphoric instrumental passages ("Disconnection Notice," "Red Arrow").This can be attributed in part to Space Raft's consistent membership; after working together for years Jordan Davis (guitar, vocals), TJay Christenson (keyboards), Jon Heibler (bass) and Tyler Chicorel (drums) have a second sense about what will and will not combine fluidly; this interplay is crucial to their multi-faceted sound. Also integral to their sound is the one-two punch of recording with Shane Hochstetler at Howl Street Studios in Milwaukee, and the mastering skills of Justin Perkins at Mystery Room Mastering.

    TRAUMAHELIKOPTER

    Look The Other Way

    [engl] 
    With a mutual love for rock ‘n’ roll music and a destructive perspective on daily life, it didn’t take long before Mark Lada and Daan van Dalen became BFF’s. After multiple bad break-ups, college debts and shitty call center jobs, the two took residence in an old warehouse building to write songs. Preferably during full moon. In the words of Maximum Rock ‘n Roll: “Fucking great.” In the words of Mark and Daan: “Fucking great.” After a while, the guys hooked up with Professional Againster Roel van Merlot, who turned out to be the ultimate addition to transform the band into an iconic trinity, based around drums, electric guitar and electric guitar. National newspapers concluded that “traumahelikopter has found the essence of rock ‘n’ roll.” Their record collections represent the entire rock ‘n’ roll history, covering obscure country, blues, R&B, beat, punk, wave, grunge, contemporary garage and whatnot. These guys know what’s up. With a devil-may-care-attitude the band played everywhere, and recorded their debut album in just one week. “This record is about pure hedonism, punk and broken teen spirits,” says Mark Lada. “And it’s the best stuff we recorded so far.” Their last full lenght has been released on LP and CD by Excelsior Recordings and on LP and cassette by Burger Records.

    YOLKS

    Don’t Cry Anymore / I Wanna Be Dumb

    [engl] Chicago's self-proclaimed, self-crowned, Kings of Awesome, THE YOLKS!!! ! Limited pressing of 600. Also out on Randy Records, USA. Brand new 7” from Chicago’s self proclaimed and self crowned Kings Of Awesome, THE YOLKS!!! Side B finds The Yolks treading familiar waters, producing another one of their trademark punk rock n roll jams with “I Wanna Be Dumb”, a song that celebrates the sheer joy of being stupid while lamenting the fact that intelligence works only one way. Unfortunately, one can only get smarter, not dumber, and once you’ve learned too much, it’s too late. SUCH IS LIFE. Side A, however, marks the continuation along a newer path for The Yolks. “Don’t Cry Anymore” is a lot less Ramones or Booker T and the MGs than much of their previous output, and a lot more Ethiopians, Clarendonians, and Everly Brothers, with brothers Nathan and Spencer Johnson singing those sweet, sweet harmonies whose gentle beauty will surely lift your spirits, and maybe, just maybe, might melt your cold, dead little heart. It’s a sound that not many bands are going for nowadays, and it is already making beautiful women swoon, tough guys choke back tears, and audiences across Chicago shower The Yolks with flowers, kisses, and admiration every time they play! With this single The Yolks show once again their ability to write songs in very different styles that nonetheless always sound cohesive, for in the end they never stray far from the immortal wellspring of pure, unadulterated rock ‘n’ roll. Buy this record and see for yourself that, indeed, The Yolks truly are THE KINGS OF AWESOME!!!

    SPIKE & THE SWEET SPOTS

    Strange Breed

    [engl] 
    DEBUT LP by Chicago's folk rock darlings, SPIKE AND THE SWEET SPOTS! Limited pressing of 300. Also out on Randy Records, USA. At a time when it seems that most rock n roll bands bury their vocals under a mountain of reverb, with the lyrics mostly unintelligible, and the voice treated as just another instrument, Spike and the Sweet Spots stand as a powerful counterpoint. They are a band for whom good songwriting and good lyrics are at the forefront. Above everything, Spencer “Spike” Johnson is a songwriter – a man who idolizes such lyrical heavyweights as Bob Dylan, Daniel Johnston, Lou Reed, or more recently The Dutchess and the Duke, Home Blitz, or Juan Wuaters. And with role models like those, you can rest assured that you will never hear a Sweet Spots song with cliché or rehashed lyrics. And on their debut album “Strange Breed”, every song is thoughtful, heartfelt, clever, and well executed. For the last ten years, Spike has played in Chicago’s favorite party rock band, The Yolks, and lent his pen to write many of their best songs. But at the same time was ripping it up with The Yolks, he was sometimes writing songs that did not match the high energy rock n roll songs in a typical Yolks set. And so he started his own group as a vehicle for these great songs he was writing that were too mellow for The Yolks, but too good to just let lay fallow.
