liveeyetv.org: The Jack Cades "Music For Children"

Today we’re thrilled to introduce you to The Jack Cades–a “supergroup” of sorts hailing from the UK. Specializing in 60’s era garage/psych/rhythm & blues, with a gob of snotty punk thrown in for good measure, the band kicked things off in late 2017 when lead guitarist/vocalist Mike Whittaker and his wife, rhythm guitarist/vocalist Elsa Whittaker, decided to record some tracks at Matthew “Mole” Lambert‘s notorious State Records Studios in Folkestone, Kent.

RingMaster Review: The Cavemen "Born To Hate"

It did not take the release of recent single Too High To Die/I’d Kill to stir up eager anticipation for the new album from The Cavemen, that instinct bred by the band’s debut album last year, but it certainly added to the energy of the lustful welcome offered to Born To Hate. Native New Zealanders now UK based within the “grimy streets of London”, The Cavemen is one of those proposals you naturally take to or not, but for raw and uncompromising spirit stirring rock ‘n’ roll, the quartet’s punk driven garage rock takes some beating.

Uberrock: The Cavemen "The Cavemen"

The band themselves claim to be "a great band to clear a party" but I'd have to say that any party this lot are playing at I'd want to be there!
 
Formed in New Zealand over a shared love of glue sniffing and wild rock 'n' roll, the band have now relocated to London to begin spoiling for a fight this side of the world and it's a promise that I bet they keep.

RingMaster Review: The Cavemen "The Cavemen"

With a name like The Cavemen, you instantly give a suggestion of sound and character before a note is flung at ears. Thoughts imagine something raw and primal; a sound stripped to the bone with no concern for niceties and that is exactly what you get in the New Zealander’s self-titled debut album. The Cavemen creates attitude driven garage punk ‘n’ roll which simply stirs up the punk inside and twists it into songs which are as addictively contagious as they are belligerently mischievous.

Fungal Punk: The Cavemen "The Cavemen"

From Auckland, New Zealand comes a crew of slag rock sleazers who dish up a foul monstrosity of musical deviancy loaded with rabid desires conjured from a garaged grimoire that summons up many mental phantoms of disease.  The noise is ravenous, feeds on your will and appeals to the most raw-boned basic instincts us music lovers all find within.  I am sure those of a more cleansed faith will find this nauseating filth to get thoroughly tuned out by but to the more ardent and twisted imps of acoustica then it will be a case of erections aplenty that will be an utter pleasure jack off.  It happens, get over it, I am going in head first regardless of any advice - fuck you!

jatstorey.com: The Kneejerk Reactions "The Indestructible Sounds of the ..."

Ever been struck with nostalgia for a time before you were born?  Possibly for a time that mostly pretty mythical anyway? No, I’m not talking about spicing up things in the boudoir by having a quick game of Guinevere and Sir Lances-a-Lot, I’m talking about The Indestructible Sounds Of the Kneejerk Reactions, an album that’s simultaneously from 2013 and fifty years before that.  So if you’ll just step this way into my time-travelling garage, folks.

Fungal Punk: Los Bengala "Incluso Festivos"

It goes without saying that when I am requested to review any produce from the Dirty Water Records stable I get slightly aroused.   The reason for this perverse reaction (of which I make no apology) is that, over the years, the label has given me untold delight with quality release after quality release.  In fact, along with Do The Dog Records, I would name these peddlers of noise as the very best labels to have tickled my tastebuds in recent times.

El Lado Oscuro de la Luna: Los Bengals "Incluso Festivos"

Garage feline? What's that cat's Garage? The answer lies in including holidays, Zaragoza debut tandem Los Bengala , which has already awakened us curiosity "coining a new genre" 10 songs of rock’n’roll, grungy, cool and garage-y where Guillermo Sinnerman and Borja Tellez (guitar and voice THE FAITH KEEPERS, respectively) take the nails, as they say, only rhythm and machete.

Schwindy's Indie Music Spotlight: Los Bengala "Incluso Festivos"

One test for an album is whether you can get into it even when you don't understand any of the words. If you do, then you know the band is really on to something. On the new album Incluso Festivos Los Bengala can definitely draw you in even if you don't understand the Spanish lyrics.

London Times: The Gories at Dirty Water Club

The Gories may be an obscure name, but their influence far outweighs their popularity. Inspired by 1950s R&B and mid-1960s high school garage bands, this Detroit trio came together in 1986 to make incredibly primitive rock’n’roll: jungle drums, two buzzsaw guitars knocking out basic chords and scratchy riffs, no bass, lyrics about cheap wine and bad women.

Fungal Punk: Muck and the Mires "Dial 'M' for Muck"

Branded as one of the leading forces in the garage scene Muck and the Mires steamroller on with hard touring and another 12-track release this time in cahoots with Kim Fowley (the brains behind the legendary all-female rock band The Runaways) and Jim Diamond (of White Stripes fame). Several previous releases have contained songs regarded as cult classics and with a healthy fan base, nearly 14 years on the block and much credible experience this is surely going to be an appetising 12 tracker – but...

Raw Power Magazine: The Arrogants "Introducing ..."

When you are a young group and we sign on a label for a first EP, it is generally happiness. When you do more of the garage revival sixties and that the label in question is Dirty Water Records, ecstasy is probably not far off. But what about when there is a group that Lille sign on the prestigious English label? Yes that must be it looks like a fairy tale version of garage rock!  Not even major when they are discovered by Yvan Serrano (Dustaphonics - which produces the EP said), The Arrogants must be on their little cloud.
