One has to admit I have discovered the band I am to write about with literally no knowledge of them. I found out about them reading the line up for Whitby Gothic Weekend, the premiere event in the United Kingdom for all in an alternative culture, whether goth, punk, metalhead…you get the idea.Read More

Stunning second album from Basingstoke Punk-Rockabilly-Grunge-Glam rockers Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons. Ged Babey is feelin(e) dirty … sorry…
First off. This is a magnificent, homegrown UK punk rock’n’roll album. Beg, borrow, steal or buy it. Hear it at least and check them out live, that’s all that needs to be said really the rest is just hyperbole and waffle, which some people find off-putting.Read More
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!Read More
Kiwi punks THE CAVEMEN announce their arrival in the U.K. with their self-titled debut album through Dirty Water Records.Read More
Taking their cues from punk bands past and present The Despondents aim to bring us short sharp garage punk tunes that hit you like an atom bomb. If you like The Rip Offs, Teengenerate, and The Real Losers you will know where they are coming from. The ever-trusty Electric Roulette website says: “The Despondents are here and they’re ready to kick you in the balls with no chords and the fat well and truly trimmed."Read More
I have come to expect good music from the good folks at Dirty Water Records (two Dirty Water releases made my favorite 12 albums of 2011). Enter Johnny Throttle. Mind you, this is a little different from previous Dirty Water releases I've received. Typically, they are fuzz-heavy garage rock albums. This is straight punk.Read More
After I´ve already celebrated THE GAGGERS to the max comes another british Punkrock-Splinterbomb raining down on the mainland slashing and burning the lower limbs of all these smoochy bands who abused the title Punkrock for their shitty music in the past years.
This is the long awaited debut (and if you didn´t wait for it, you know shit) of JOHNNY THROTTLE.
As well as possessing a name that evokes the spirit of '77, Johnny Throttle's sound has its roots firmly planted in the British punk explosion. So if we throw in names like The Buzzcocks, Slaughter & The Dogs and The Damned then you'll begin to build a picture of where they're coming from.Read More
Another one of those bands lurking in the dark alleyways of London’s toilet circuit, Johhny Throttle are best described as an illusive spectacle – sporadically spotted, but when they do turn up unexpectedly on an inappropriate support bill, they make themselves known.Read More
The vanguard of new punk rock bands from the UK brings us another high-class representatives, JOHNNY THROTTLE, who after giving us after two thrilling singles finally explode a full-length cluster bomb, which is stuffed with all sorts of outstanding traditional punk rock offerings.Read More
The Despondents are here and they’re ready to kick you in the balls with no chords and the fat well and truly trimmed. There’s nothing bad I can say about this record. It’s hard, fast, no frills, full to bursting with attitude and verve. In short, it’s fucking ace.Read More
