Jenkinses “Langered” EP

The JENKINSES from Brussels, Belgium describe themselves as “the best kept secret in rock’n’roll”, and they might be right! The band formed in 2013 with former NERVOUS SHAKES members and have been through different line-ups before offering us this 5 song EP. Opening song “Down” bring the NEW YORK DOLLS and The SEX PISTOLS to…

The Cheap Cassettes “All Anxious, All The Time”

Formed out of the ashes of the DIMESTORE HALOES, The CHEAP CASSETTES, from grunge capital Seatlle are more into power pop and ’77 punk with fine melodies reminding of The REPLACEMENTS, CHEAP TRICK, or Paul WELLER in songs like “All Anxious, All The Time”, “Disappear With You”, “Girlfriend”, “Wreckless”, or the catchy “Big Dumb Town.”…

Nerve Button “S/T”

There’s no reason why the new power pop wave wouldn’t hit Canada, and Wanda Records is bringing us a vinyl proof of that with NERVE BUTTON. Handclaps, and THUNDERS influenced guitars from the start, it can’t be bad, right? While the band has its roots in punk rock’n’roll, Batman (Yes!)’s vocals also remind me of…

Spit Pink “Night Of The Lizard”

77 punk from Germany on Wanda Records, so as usual, you get a great cover, with insert, poster, etc. “Fools” starts with glammy handclaps and STOOGES riffs, while the following songs “Don’t Bring a Knife To a Gun Fight”, and “Jenny & Jim” shows us that despite their angry energy, SPIT PINK keeps a melodic,…

Les Suzards – Sons of the Dogs

After reviewing their debut album out on Wanda Records, we decided to send a few questions to Les SUZARDS in order to know more about them. T Boy Stoogeling (vocals/guitar) tells us about the band’s history, French rock’n’roll, their last tour and influences… Can you tell us a bit about the history of the band…

The Gee Strings – Let’s call it rock’n’roll!

The GEE STRINGS have been around for quite some time now. After getting addicted to their new LP “I’m So Gee!!”, we thought it was the right time to ask them a few questions. Bernadette (guitar) tells us about the new album, the band’s different line-ups, his experiences with SONNY VINCENT, SCOTT DRAKE and The…

Les Suzards “S/T”

Judging from the name of the band, I would have never expected them to play this kind of rock’n’roll. For your information, Suze is a famous French/Swiss old-school alcoholic drink. Despite their admiration for this drink, the power trio from the West of France has been on a steady DOGS/NY DOLLS diet too. Opening track…

The Gee Strings “I’m So Gee!!”

Any band starting with a JOHNNY THUNDERS guitar intro can only fit on here, right?… Well, apart from this, The GEE STRINGS have been rockin’ all over Europe since 1994 with different line-ups, establishing themselves as one of the leading ’77 punk bands in Germany. On this album, you’ll find the atomic rhythm section of…

The Bloodtypes “Pull The Plug”

Second album, by Portland’s finest ’77 punk/new wave rock band! The BLOODTYPES have been spreading their toxic sci-fi synth punk disease all over the US and Europe these last years, and their songwriting only improved on this new album. The band’s energy reminds me of X and early SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES on songs like…

The Gee Strings “I Will Get You” 7″

German ’77 punk rockers The GEE STRINGS are no newcomers, from their debut 10″ in 1997, or their 2002 “Arrest Me” album (Dead Beat Records) to this brand new 2 song 7″ on No Front Teeth Records, the band has remained true to their love for old-school snotty punk rock’n’roll. “I Will Get You” displays…

No Tomorrow Boys “Who Killed Johnny?” 7″

The NO TOMORROW BOYS, from Portland, Oregon are back with two new songs on this cool looking clear vinyl (also available in black) released by Hound Gawd! Records: “Who Killed Johnny?”, a tribute to JOHNNY THUNDERS that will please all of you LAMF rock’n’roll addicts, and “Get Out Of Denver”, a CHUCK BERRY meets LITTLE…
