    Catalan! – Alive

    You may remember back in the sunny days of July, we had a feature and interview with a certain Mr Ewen Friers, aka Catalan! talking all about the creation of the project, hopes for the future, collaborations and whether he's a Dr Ian Malcolm or David Levinson kind of guy. ...

    Down I Go – Mortals

    Brilliantly self-described as "Drunk Wikipedia Farming" (aka, the kings of concept-core) the Stockholm/Illinois/Toronto trio that is Down I Go still exist as a band. Despite them all living in different countries, the simple matter of distance, time and space isn't going to stop them from creating music...

    AmpWrecked Album round up: FIDLAR / Sleaford Mods / Loma Prieta

    Quick round-up of some albums I've enjoyed but didn't get to write about from earlier in the year. Fidlar and their surf-punk, beer-drinking hijinks that make up Too; Sleaford Mods and their brand of curt misanthropy on Key Markets and lastly, Loma Prieta, painting a warped picture with Self Portrait. Enjoy. ...

    Funeral For Funeral For A Friend

    Funeral For A Friend have decided to call it a day. Deep within me somewhere, the 19 year old me is quite sad at this news as back then they were my favourite band. I still remember buying their debut album, Casually Dressed and Deep in Conversation back in 2003 (time has ravaged me) and playing it to death. ...

    This Is New Album-core with Down I Go

    HUGE NEWS. Down I Go are back. Well, they're going to record an album at least, which is excellent. For those unfamiliar, Down I Go made/make concept albums (dinosaurs, disasters, robots, tyrants and gods) and are generally brilliant. They split up a few years back due to band members all living in different countries...

    BACK IN THE STATE? RFTC 2013

    This picture obviously means something. Quite what it means, I don’t know but I’m excited. Honestly, if it’s what I’m hoping and thinking it makes the At The Drive-In and Refused reunions look like small fry. Swami Records aren’t giving much away at the moment (the teases) but it could be one of two things: [&hellip...

    Amazon Marketplace Fun times #3

    Sometimes I wish Amazon marketplace never existed. Thinking of all the money I could have saved not buying old nu-metal albums for a penny and £1.28 postage makes me weep. Then I realise that I’d only waste said money the next time I passed a Fopp or a local establishment that sells alcohol. Recent purchases [&hellip...
