Dead End “Suicide Notes”

French punk rock band DEAD END has been around for more than 20 years! Despite all those years and numerous line-up changes, Wattie (vocals/guitar) always managed to keep DEAD END alive and kicking. On this new album, you can obviously hear Wattie’s punk rock’n’roll roots in songs like “Autophobia”, “The Cheater”, “Loser”, or “Shout”, and…

Olowex “Discode” EP

Holeg Spies (French musician specialized in movie soundtracks) and electronic music producer Yannis Kamarinos joined forces and ideas in order to create cinematic music under the name OLOWEX, with the help of Thierry Jones (BAD LOSERS, The JONES.) Spies and Jones previously worked together in electro-industrial project KORE KOSMOU. The main track of this EP,…

Frozen Dead Kittens “Shelter In The Wild” EP

Despite their name, these three guys don’t play horror rock. FROZEN DEAD KITTENS started back in 2011 in France, and have released two EPs and one album (“Dirty Lovers Republic”) in 2013 so far. They’ve decided to get back to their rock’n’roll roots after their second guitar player left in 2014, and it seems like…

Cyclope Espion “Friday Night Epitath”

CYCLOPE ESPION is the project of Thomaxe, you might have read some of his articles/columns in various ‘zines, including ours, or if you’re lucky enough to live in New York City, then you might have seen him play in a rock’n’roll club with his bands, or jamming with local rock’n’rollers. Thomaxe was a French teacher…

The Zombie Dandies “Dandy’s Little Monsters”

French horror glam punk ZOMBIE DANDIES are back with a free downloadable album, and set the listener into their world right from the start with their cartoonish burlesque “Little Monsters Intro”, and the fun and pretty chaotic “Halloween Again.” Songs like “Killer Rabbit”, “Regenerate My Dead Pet”, “Brundlefly”, or “Dangerous Weirdo” reminds me of the…

Rakel Traxx “Dirty Dollz”

The South of France is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think about glam metal, but RAKEL TRAXX has been around for a while now and these guys know what they’re talking about. Here they are again with 10 traxx full of heavy, sleazy rock’n’roll riffs, catchy choruses (“Can’ t You…

The Joystix/High-School Motherfuckers “Skulls Out!” Split CD

These two bands have been friends for quite some time now, so it isn’t very surprising to see them share this CD together. The JOYSTIX still know how to mix their old-school punk rock’n’roll influences to more modern, and melodic ones, and when they sing “I Don’t Believe In RnR (Anymore)”, it’s hard to believe…

Medicine Ball Caravan “Keep Goin’ ‘Til The Next Stop”

This second album is out 6 years after the band’ split! Singer Matt decided it would be a pity not to release these 8 songs, and had a few guests to help him and make it happen, including drummer Danny Fury (The LORDS OF THE NEW CHURCH, KILL CITY DRAGONS, VAIN, TANGO PIRATES…) MEDICINE BALL…

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 Wayward Gentlewomen “Still Burnin'”

The previous album of these French rock’n’roll pistoleros was untitled “The Last For…” (2012), and could have been their farewell record, but it would have been too predictable… The WAYWARD GENTLEWOMEN are back with 13 new songs wrapped in zebra print, and pink & black. Somewhere between VIOLENT FEMMES and the DOGS, the band added…

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…
