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.Read More

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.
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.

Great rock ‘n’ roll always benefits from a good dose of creative dementia in its devilry and you get plenty of that and more in the bedlam that is Fourteen 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.Read More
The Rock'n'Roll has known many facets, this one is certainly one of the dazzling. Mercilessly overdriven Guitars, thunderous drums and ultra distorted vocals – Atomic Suplex go certainly not so easy ear like Elvis Presley.Read More
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.Read More
D'you want to know what insanity sounds like? How about a rocket going off? What does the inside of the rocket sound like? It's a car as it falls of the side of a very steep cliff, that moment when it hits the floor. Atomic Suplex might well be the answer for these questions. Sure, insanity isn't funny, but if it had this as the soundtrack?Read More
