An interview with The Great Sabatini

added by Alex Deller on Sunday November 25 2018 in Interviews

If for some daft reason you're not, then get your ears around their latest album (the excellent 'Goodbye Audio') and see what they have to say for themselves by clicking on the link below.

An interview with Bismuth

added by Alex Deller on Tuesday November 13 2018 in Interviews

UK two-piece Bismuth have just released a mighty fine slab of doom metal in the shape of their second full-length LP, 'The Slow Dying Of The Great Barrier Reef'. As you can imagine it's very far from cheery, but it is at least very good. Let the music swallow you up while you read the musings of Tanya and Joe by clicking on the link below.

Burmese - 'Privileged' LP

added by Alex Deller on Wednesday November 7 2018 in New Releases

Macedonian filth purveyors Fuck Yoga are at it again, with a new LP from the compellingly horrible Burmese. The label says: "Two bass guitars battling for dominance in ecstasy. Two drums painstakingly conducting a beat of frenzied violence; be it militaristic vignettes or full-on grinding. Two vocals topping each other in a deathclutch. A high-speed thrashnoise / moribund no-wave triumph; freaks into early Napalm Death / Swans / Whitehouse - recognize!"
