The X-Ray Eyes “Destiny Is Depressed”

I'm a bit late on this one since the album was released in August 2019, but it would have been a pity not to talk about it. The X-RAY EYES come from Leeds, UK and seem to have a special thing for '77 punk rock. The energy of the first songs ("Track One" and "Hallelujah")... Continue Reading →

Frankie Delmane “Street Penetration”

Some of you probably know FRANKIE DELMANE from The CRAZY SQUEEZE but he has also been active in various rock'n'roll bands (including TEENAGE FRAMES) and as a solo artist. "Penetration Street" contains 18 songs from his 365 songs in 365 days project and offers us a wide variety of his musician and songwriter talents in... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →
