EXCESSIVE FORCE – ‘Live Life For Idiots’ (Riot Records) Hardcore as fuck. Old school Agnostic Front style hardcore from down under. To claim it is one of the more mellow songs on the album (soon to be released) it’s an ode to those fools blinded by bull*hit. This is one angry slab of old-school hardcore. What’s not to love? It’s got a breeze block heavy guitar riff and lyrics to boot. Get on it kids it’s a belter.
The Wildhearts – Sort Your Fucking Shit Out’ (Graphite Records) The second single lifted from the brand new September released album from The Wildhearts is a bonafide banger. Don’t believe me then take a listen on the youtube link. Hookey (is that a word) as fuck from the thumping Danny bassline to Ginger’s melody to the humorous but serious message in the title and lyrics. Everything a Wildhearts fan wants to hear. Summery as fuck but with the heaviness like a pint of Guinness on a 27-degree day’s sunshine. Take off your shoes and dance – indeed. Bring on the album it’s what we all need.

The Dirty Denims – ‘Rock and Roll All Night / Better Believe It’ (Action Rock Jukebox 45 single)(Screaming Crow Records) A perfectly passable cover of the Kiss Klassic from The Dirty Denims. Their original submission is an uptempo rocker ‘Better Believe It’.
Each band has submitted a rockin’ version of a song that would have been found on your local jukebox in the 70s & 80s backed with an original track from the band. These large-holed 45s are perfect for that old jukebox in your basement. Each single comes with a jukebox title card and a custom 45 adapter in case you don’t have one of those cool old jukeboxes. Each release will feature 100 color vinyl and 200 black vinyl versions. The first 50 copies sold will be autographed by the band. Right now the singles will only be available on Screaming Crow’s and the bands’ websites. Once all the singles are out, Screaming Crow will compile them into one killer double LP and CD and release them through our normal retail channels.

Black Sheriff – ‘Centerfold / Johnny’s Fight’ (Action Rock Jukebox 45 single)(Screaming Crow Records) A stone cold pop rock classic gets the Sheriff treatment and in fairness its gonna be tough to beat the original but points are awarded for daring to go there and in truth pulling off a pretty impressive take on ‘Centrefold’.
The band sounds more comfortable on their own turf kicking up a shitstorm with ‘Johnny’s Fight’. With a rumbling bassline that heads into a gang-filled chorus that’ll have the boys and girls windmilling and pogoing.
Little Triggers – ‘YEH MAN’ (ingrooves) With influences stretching from Humble Pie and the MC5 to The Hives, Wolfmother and QOTSA. Tom Hamilton (lead vocals & guitars) and Jay Radcliffe (drums & backing vocals) make one hell of a din for a duo. ‘Yeah Man’ is a thumping headache the morning after with a chaotic claustrophobic sound that gets exciting after the brain fog clears. From the rasping vocals to the distorted bass and thrashing guitars. Very exciting times for the Liverpool-based pair. Check em out here
Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard – ‘Crescent Man v Demolition Man’ Those south Wales rascals are back and as barking as ever with a brand new one for your listening pleasure.
