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 →

Their cover of The CRYSTALS' "Then He Kissed Me" is probably my favourite on this album although... Continue Reading →

Unfortunately, the style has disappeared quite a long time ago, so it's good to see a band from Italy bringing the pink glittery corpse of bubblegum glam punk back to life! PSYCHO BARBIES first released a 4 song demo... Continue Reading →

The Yoohoos “Up Goes The Rocket”

Pop punk is always better with some bubblegum added to it, and The YOOHOOS from Germany definitely know about this! This German power trio with both male and female vocals are influenced by GROOVIE GHOULIES, CHIXDIGGIT and 90s indie college rock, but songs like "Hello", "Planet Heart", "Spread The Magic" or "Decisions" could have been...
