EIGHT ROUNDS RAPID

"Edgy, drugged-up thug punk. Loss Leader is Thames Estuary crude given a vital contemporary twist. Invest now." 8/10 — Uncut
"On tracks such as Writeabout, singer David Burke's quick-fire Essex-drawl conveys barbed verse worthy of John Cooper Clarke or Mark E.Smith." ★★★★ — Mojo
Eight Rounds Rapid’s songs are rooted in trad blues, but guitar from Simon Johnson and singer David Alexander’s acerbic delivery make the act sound like John Cooper Clarke and Mark E Smith jamming in a Southend bus depot, with their gritty tales of the Essex underworld.
The group gained a national audience last year when they supported Wilko Johnson on his UK Farewell Tour, winning over BBC DJs, Artrocker magazine and a clutch of bloggers with their polarising performances at Camden’s Koko.
Trash Culture is the perfect soundtrack on a Friday night as you crack your first beer, jump and pogo. Trash Culture is the culture of just about living, working for records, beers, rehearsals and gigs. Trash Culture is getting inspiration out of shitty jobs rising out the shit every weekend to be pissed off during the week. Trash Culture is playing music because we have to, for if we don't we will kill our work colleagues
Warsaw's Jack Saint are a howling four-headed swamp-beast with Jim Beam and Jeffrey Lee Pierce's blood running through its veins. Their ‘S/T’ album is a reverb-drenched voodoo blues explostion which will appeal to fans of Beasts of Bourbon, The Gun Club, The Sceintists, Birthday Party and The Fuzztones. The album includes 10 fuzz howling rippers plus covers of The Gun Club and the Laughing Hyenas. Import from Poland.
