Here’s a quick singles club rundown to celebrate America waking the fuck up and Biden getting the job done. First up is the brand new video offering from those crazy mysterious kids The Network.
Black Spiders – ‘Fly In The Ointment’ (Self Release) Black Spiders are back kids and they’re coming with a bit of a bang and a riff-laden banger entitled ‘Fly In The Ointment’. It’s the first new music from the northern Rockers in Six years and it’s a pretty impressive call to arms to be fair. Welcome back we’ve missed you!
Buy the ‘Fly in the Soup’ single HERE:
Max Motherfucker – ‘Natural Thing’ (Self Release) After 10 years of playing loud and snotty punk Max always wanted to do some heavy Rock n Roll music. He mooted the idea for many years and that day has arrived!
The lyrics to the songs are more personal and less negative than at his day job with Christmas. Max said he just needed a great guitar player with some overwhelming riffs! so he called Johnny Cobra who he’d known for over a decade and he jumped on board. On the drums is Cladymirko, the drummer of Christmas from 2018 till 2020. The bass duties are courtesy of Michel Wern. He also produced the record. I love Christmas and the attitude they exude but this is something altogether different for Max and a really impressive solo record. Fresh sounding and big riffs you’d be daft not to get involved. If you thought the A-side was a fluke wait till you get a load of the flip. ‘Are We Alive’ is better than anything Turbonegro has recorded in donkey’s years Buy it! Record of the week with Civic. Pick it up here but be quick it’s very limited!
Subliminal Landmines – ‘Wheres My Coke?’ (Independent) The first video from their LP ‘Gibberish’ for these lafayette punks. they lean heavily on mid period Green Day so much so that they cover ‘Brain Stew’ on the album.
Civic – ‘Radiant Eye’ (Flightless Records) I fuckin’ love everything I’ve heard from Civic (which might not be a lot but what I have heard I’ve loved). Outta Melbourne these cats just kick up a shit storm every time.
A no-nonsense rocker ‘Radiant Eye’ kicks up a heap of garage rock dust with the spirit of the Stooges running through their veins it’s a no-brainer for any lover of guitar Rock and Roll. Flip it over and there’s a pretty smart take on ‘Making Time’ by the Creations that up there with Stiv Bator and The Lords cover, so they’re in great company. They’ve got the Rock and the Roll and just Get it. My advice, buy the damn thing – Here
Come At The King – ‘In My Place’ (self Release) A decent tune from Come At The King taken from their soon to be released EP. They mix up a bit of indie with some loud guitar music and ‘In My Place’ is a very decent representation of their overall sound. There’s some heavy rock in there for sure but they clearly have an ear for some Oasis stylings as well and can turn in a decent melody to boot.
With a new EP on the horizon, this is just a taster for what’s to come.
