Cheap Gunslingers “S/T”

CHEAP GUNSLINGERS formed in 2015 in Florida although their sound has more to do with 70s New York. They also seem to be influenced by The MODERN LOVERS as opening song "Record Store" suggests. Songs like "Good Time" and "Run Girl" make me think about mid-00s punk rock'n'roll bands such as The MYSTERY ADDICTS or... Continue Reading →

Walter Lure & The Waldos “Wacka Lacka Boom Bop A Loom Bam Boo”

(Cleopatra Records) cd review by Anguish Young ...If you're anything like me, you probably much preferred the Bowery when it was the unholy habitat of junkie film makers, winos, hookers, and immigrants who flagrantly sold untaxed loosie cigarettes on every street corner in broad daylight to the millionaire's only, Disneyfied, gentrification bruncher, yuppie version, with...

The Innocent “S/T”

Italy has brought us some exciting rock'n'roll bands these last years (GIUDA, IDOL LIPS, LESTER GREENOWSKI, etc.), and it seems like it won't stop now. Max (vocals/guitar) studied rock'n'roll at a good school since he played with RICKY RAT both in Europe and in the USA. Back in Italy, he found three rock'n'rollers to express... Continue Reading →

Sugar Lady “S/T” EP

Hailing from The Netherlands, SUGAR LADY get most of their influences from NYC 77' punk rock'n'roll, when rock'n'roll was dirty and dangerous. The HEARTBREAKERS/JOHNNY THUNDERS influence is quite obvious in "Welcome To The Real World", but the vocals remind me a bit of NASHVILLE PUSSY, so it doesn't sound like an imitation at all. The...

BBQT – All That Glitters…

"Let's Go!", BBQT's debut album on No Front Teeth Records is a fine mix of 70s glitter rock and 77 punk rock'n'roll. We asked Gabbie Bam Bam a few questions about the band and the album. Once again, it seems like all that glitters rocks! When did you start BBQT? I started BBQT in 2010.... Continue Reading →

Hey Honcho & The Aftermaths “Chico Purito!!”

The debut album of Spanish garage punk rock'n'rollers HEY HONCHO & THE AFTERMATHS on Hound Gawd! Records. While the band definitely sounds garage, there's also some 77 punk influences in songs like "Sally Can't Wait", "Can't Stand The Pain", "Pick Up The Phone", or "Dull Boy." You'll hear some catchy choruses ("Speak To Complain", "Fair... Continue Reading →

The Ringleaders “Bi-Coastal Blasphemy”

The RINGLEADERS consist of Larry May (CANDY SNATCHERS, BORN LOOSE), Hans Molnar (The HELLBENDERS), Mark Ho (HOLLYWOOD HATE), and Tim Bender (DEATH BY STEREO.) 11 tracks that aren't too far from what BORN LOOSE do stylewise, a mix of '77 punk and punk'n'roll. "Shine" is catchy enough to make you want to sing along, and... Continue Reading →

Idol Lips “Street Values”

Italian punk rock'n'rollers IDOL LIPS are back with a new album on German record label Wanda Records. Although the band still owes a lot to JOHNNY THUNDERS ("Too Loose"...), you'll hear some obvious TURBONEGRO influences in "Don't Need Your Love", "Waiting To Die Around", or "Too Loud For The Crowd", and the band's snotty spirit...

The DeRellas “High Rise Supersize” 7″

While changing vocalist is always risky for a band, The DERELLAS welcome Joey DeRella (their third singer!), and reinforce their glam punk sound on this brand new flashy 7" vinyl record... "High Rise Supersize" is a catchy poppy snotty glitter punk song in the vein of HANOƏ ROCKS and early MANICS (the guitars and energy... Continue Reading →
