Neon Animal “Bring Back Rock’n’Roll From The Dead”

Sadly, the London rock’n’roll scene has been deadly quiet these last years, and only past images of England’s capital remain exciting when its name comes to mind… Nervertheless, it would be sad to live in nostalgia, and that’s what NEON ANIMAL seem to have understood.

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…

Jeff Ward “Carry On Dreaming” Book

Book review by General Labor “It’s hard to find words. I have played in so many spaces with precarious floors and beams and stairs and not enough exits and certainly no sprinklers. Warehouses, squats, basements, rooftops, barns. Playing music saves my life. People tell me listening to music saves their lives. People telling me that…
