OK. With the last knockings of October upon us and as we turn back the clocks through Halloween and career into November it seems only fair that we mop up all the late entries into the October singles Club. Thank us later but for now, check out these worthy entries.
Yard Of Blondes – ‘Do You Need More?’ (Golden Robot / Die Laughing Records) These LA Rockers knock out the third single off their much anticipated new album With a big modern-sounding record it actually has a riff that wouldn’t feel out of place on a Queens Of Stone Age record and saying that the use of double-tracking the vocals are an idea QOTSA run with quite often. To be fair it’s a decent track and the album is worth checking out on the strength of this one and it’s nice to see some decent alternative rock music being made. Check it out Here
Chuck Norris Experiment – ‘Kill The Night’ (Transubstans Records / Ghost Highway Records) It’s loud, it’s brash and it’s in your face. CNE unveil the first track off their new album that should be with us in early 2020. With a pounding riff and wah infested solo its a great tune. ‘Kill The Night’ is a banger as the kids would say and on the back of their super cool 5″ split with Sonny Vincent these are good times for CNE fans.
Mr. Teenage – ‘Automatic Love’ (Anti Fade Records) Melbourne four-piece Mr. Teenage deliver punchy rock’n’roll with a bit of snotty power pop. They’ve been causing a stir back home playing with Australian legends the Cosmic Psychos and press darlings Amyl and The Sniffers. It’s not hard to see how that’s come about on the strength of these tunes. I’ve got a lot of time for the excellent ‘Waste Of Time’ and the Dolls tinged ‘the Loser’ these cats might have been born 40 years too late but when you hear a great EP it’s timeless. This rough around the edges power pop is most welcome round these parts. Mr. Teenager can come again. Single of the week? You bet it is. Pick up a copy here
AVALANCHE – ‘Get Back’ (X Ray Records) Sydney hard rockers Avalanche are set to release their new single ‘Get Back (To F*ckwit City)’ via X-Ray Records on 16th November. ‘Get Back (To F*ckwit City)’ is the follow up to their recent single.
Avalanche are 4 misfits from Sydney’s west, playing electrifying, DC inspired hard rock. Get Back (To F*ckwit City) is a raw, punchy and anthemic ode to the band’s hometown and the people which reside in it. Its old-school by the nu school and it was practically recorded live in the studio with no fills, no-frills, Lets Rock, stripped-back approach. Horns up and lets Rock!
Pre-order/pre-save ‘Get Back (To F*ckwit City)’ HERE
Lemon Drop Gang – ‘Bubble Yum’ (Rum Bar Records) Lemon Drop Gang hails from Tucson Arizona, home of some of the most unusual music in the USA. High energy burners mixed with haunting tales of psychotic love make their debut album, ‘I’m Not The One’, a complete experience in any deranged mind. I’ll have whatever these guys are on.
Silverjet – ‘Everybody Used To Love You’ (Self Release) With a feature coming up this trio releases a video for the track ‘Everybody Used To Love You’. With big riffs being the name of the game check it out.
The Sinclairs featuring Paul-Ronney Angel – ‘Halloween Wings’ (Cleopatra Records) You want a record of the week? Look no further than this ghoulishly good track from the most in-demand drummer in lockdown and the king of Gypsy, bop n roll. ‘Halloween Wings’ is a barrel full of rock and roll with a spooktacular edge to it with some mightily fine six-string work courtesy of Billy Shinbone.
The album will drive you batty and let’s make no bones about the guest slot from Paul Ronney you shouldn’t pass this one by its spooktacular. Check it out Here
Card Reader – “Mental Scars (feat. Ryan Beebe) The song is available for FREE download on Bandcamp until 11/10 (‘Mental Scars’ EP release date). Card Reader is a pop-punk band from Long Island, NY. A quartet consisting of guitarist/vocalist Tom Petito, drummer Rob Cigliano, guitarist Marc Lambert and bassist/vocalist Matt Sullivan. The group is getting ready to launch their first EP release “Mental Scars” on Tuesday, November 10th.
Card Reader has forged ahead to provide fans with more music in 2020. This time with the added experience and vocal presence from their new bassist Matt Sullivan. They attacked writing their new EP with the goal of reinforcing positivity and pushing the boundaries of their sound.
The 69 Cats – ‘Hollywoods Bleeding’ (Cleopatra Records) Jyrki 69 & Danny B. Harvey’s gothabilly supergroup, The 69 Cats, return with The Damned’s Rat Scabies & Kim Nekroman for a wild and infectious new single, a cover of Post Malone’s ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding!’ Check out the video and prepare for the full album in early 2021. Rat must be trying to break some world record for being the busiest drummer on the planet. With Jyrki putting on his best ’80s Iggy Pop voice it’s a winner from me. To be fair its worked really well and is a bit ghoultastic.
