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!

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.

Fungal Punk: Atomic Suplex "14 Inches Of Fist"

A fizzbomb of white light heat is potentially the outcome of this CD from a band who are highly charged, unpredictable and joyously committed to the harsh acoustic attacks that have been created over many years and with such loving rock and roll care. This is another Dirty Water Records release and this time around I shall not labour the point of an intro and move quickly in and deal with this donation from these London loons.

Pure Rawk: Atomic Suplex "14 Inches Of Fist!

23 minutes.  14 tracks.  The longest of which screeches, crashes and burns its way to halt just a few seconds past the two minute mark.  It’s safe to say that Atomic Suplex are probably the sort of band who should come with a health warning for the unwary.  They play the sort of speedball scuzzed-up garage rock that only exists in poncy trust fund bands like The Strokes’ worst nightmares.  And it’s brilliant.
