The Jack Cades deliver a throwback 60’s garage rock that is clean, simple, fun and unfiltered. These mostly two to three-minute tracks don’t contain anything that you have not heard before and that is the best quality of The Jack Cades. The scorching guitar during “You’ve Seen It All” will keep your volume turned up while Elsa Whittaker shows off some swagger on “Identity Crisis” when she asks the question “why don’t you be yourself?” and lets out a scream. This kind of fire and strum is what you will find on Music For Children and will make The Jack Cades your favorite new listen.
Portugal’s blues-punk superstar Legendary Tigerman returns for his sixth album, Misfit, and finds himself on a desert-set road trip tale of one man’s search to become nothing. Dirty Water Records score a coup with the UK/US release of this fantastic modern-day concept album.
Who: Archie and The Bunkers are the Cleveland-based duo of Emmett and Cullen O’Connor, brothers who have been playing music together for as long as they can remember. Songs From The Lodge is the groups sophomore album.
Two brothers, Emmett and Cullen O’Connor, unleash a unique juxtaposition of jazz, blues and punk with nothing more than a four-piece drum set, an organ and a set of savage vocal chords. The Cleveland duo draws influence from jazz stalwarts such as Jimmy Smith and Richard “Groove” Holmes. Combine that with punk pioneers The Stooges, The Dead Boys and The Screamers — and you have Archie and the Bunkers.
Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio comes the punk rock duo Archie And The Bunkers. Consisting of the O’Connor brothers: Cullen on vocals and organ, along with Emmett on drums and vocals. Songs From The Lodge is the band’s second full length release. This follows their 2015 self-titled record, along with a number of singles and two EP’s.
After their debut album shot around the garage underground world, followed by extensive US and European tours, culminating in a visceral Third Man Records session and release, the O’Connor siblings have finally landed back on their feet with just enough time to record their second full length album of Hi-Fi organ punk for Dirty Water Records before their rollercoaster ride starts again. Louder Than War’s Nathan Whittle gets dragged along for the ride.
Visually, Lucy And The Rats look like a typical last gang in town garage rock band, but when they plug in and let rip something magical happens as the grease peels away to leave a shimmering ray of bubblegum garage somewhat in the same vein as Nikki & The Corvettes riding with the top down while blasting out The Vapors. It’s glorious to hear and by right should be one of the rock ‘n’ roll albums of the summer.
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.
Celebrating being together for twenty years — fifteen of which with the same lineup — The Loons has released their latest single. Much like the vintage rock vibe that the band emulates, this is a double-sided single. Like any 45, it has two songs, the first being “Blue Ether,” followed by “Saturday’s Son.” Over the course of their career, the California-based band has released four full-length albums, more than a handful of singles, and has toured across the globe. Blue Ether b/w Saturday’s Son is the first release from The Loons since their 2014 EP B.S.O.D., and acts as a short but very sweet return for the band.
These figurative puzzles are based in London (though they come from various parts of the world), come from several of the most famous band (The Cavemen, Atomic Suplex, Trash Culture) and their motto is: "We'll fuck you with the long dick of rock'n'roll ", not bad to get started.
If there is one band in this fast paced world which gives the body an even more intensive and thorough workout it is undoubtedly King Salami and the Cumberland 3. This is a band where an Automated External Defibrillator should always be on hand at every show they play, waiting and ready to revive the inevitable wasted bodies. Now that need has been transferred to the band’s records. When playing all three of the band’s albums back to back, apart from a danger to health, it is a hard choice to say which is best, all in their openly individual ways an equal treat, but without doubt Goin’ Back To Wurstville is the most demanding and exciting for heart and limbs yet.
