First up today we have this banger from Streetwalkin’ Mofos feat. Matt Dangerfield. Streetwalkin’ Mofos is the brainchild of filmmaker Danny Garcia and Joe Klenner (Corazones Muertos). While staying in Sao Paulo during the pandemic, Danny and Joe recruited a few local musicians to record a punk rock album of covers that range from The Boys (“Living in the City”) to Black Flag’s “Wasted”, Elvis Presley’s “Burning Love” or Iggy Pop’s “Houston is Hot Tonight”.

“It’s basically a collection of some of my favorite tunes since I was a kid’ says Garcia before he adds: “but we tried to include as many collaborations as we could”. So in this album you’ll find the legendary Jayne County & A.M. Taylor (on Iggy’s track), Deadbeat Poets (on Paul Collins Beat’s “Walking Out On Love”), The Only Ones’ John Perry (on “Everyone’s a Fool”), Testors’ Sonny Vincent on “Wasted”, The Jetz (“If That’s What You Really Want”), Alabama 3’s Nick Reynolds (on The Romantics’ classic “What I Like About You”), The Boys’ Matt Dangerfield (“Living in the City”), Kill My Coquette’s Natalie Denise Sperl (“Burning Love”) and Brazil’s Luvbites (on Sylvain Sylvain’s “The Kids Are Back”) and Os Roucos’ (on The Nerves’ “Paper Dolls”). 

Bristol-based punk-rock three-piece Trashed release their single ‘Decay’ this weekend (April 29th), taken from their debut full-length album ‘Happy In Hindsight’ due later this year.

The trio take energetic punk rock and down-tune it to Slipknot depths, creating sludgy and visceral edges tied together with hooky melodies. The band slammed onto the scene with their debut single ‘Waste Away’ from their subsequent debut EP ‘Yours Not Mine’ in 2019, which was met with critical acclaim and saw them play a handful of successful UK shows, making a name for themselves as ones to watch, before the release of their second EP ‘Faceplant’ came in the Spring of 2020.

With a 2020 full of potential ripped out from under them, the stresses of the pandemic were potent. That, mixed with a flurry of mental health issues for vocalist Jimmy, saw Trashed turn their isolation into a concept album of expression, writing eleven tracks about all aspects of their personal struggles with depression, anxiety, love, and loss. 

Decay, the first single from the band’s upcoming debut album ‘Happy in Hindsight’, recorded with Neil D. Kennedy (Creeper, Boston Manor, Milk Teeth), is a song about living alongside suicidal thoughts.

Next up is bullshit-free Oz Hard Rockers riffing it up on ‘Preacher

Following their much-acclaimed, third album Never Say Die (2018), Melbourne-based hard rock act DEAD CITY RUINS has premiered a music video for the high voltage, new single “Preacher“!
Formed in 2010, the Australians sold their belongings and went all-in when it comes to rock ’n’ roll. Tirelessly touring the planet, the band has managed to capture the hearts of its audience gig by gig – much like Rival Sons, Monster Truck, and similar trailblazers of their generation have. They also share a list of influences with these acts, namely Deep Purple, Guns N’ Roses, Zeppelin. Their goal: bring rock ’n’ roll back to the people!
