Review: THE PISSED ONES – Piss In Your Pocket LP


Piss In Your Pocket LP
Eat The Rat Records

I can’t quite put my finger on what exactly makes this band so different from countless like-minded acts of the ’77 revival imprint. All I know for sure is that you’d get hooked instantly within the first 20 seconds of the album, with the powerfully simple Wilko Jonson’esque riff of „Don’t You Get it“ blasting through the speakers. Having said this, it shouldn’t take you by surprise that THE PISSED ONES in my book are definitely making it onto the short list of the best contemporary bands outta Germany, if not certainly pulling ahead to the top of that list. Recently, this Dresden based outfit has just released their second release, „Piss In Your Pocket“, succeeding last year’s tape debut „All Pissed Up“, and now, with a proper LP under their belt, THE PISSED ONES once again successfully enter the rough-edged terrain of the late 70s UK punk explosion and deliver this sound in full effect.

Backstreet Fever Vol. 1 – Bovver Boogie, Terrace Glam & Teenage Glitter

Review: DAMAGED ONES – The First Kiss LP


The First Kiss LP
New Age Records

TURNING POINT, UNBROKEN, STRIFE, some randomly chosen names of abstinent bustle boxers with XXX-Psychosis from the New Age label roster preaching an edge that I give a fuck about.
Owed to the above (maybe ignorant and single-sided) point of view and due to the fact that mentioned blokes and their musical relatives aren´t a part of my personal musical universe at all, I even didn´t know that New Age Records is still active and honestly couldn´t have cared less, at least so far.

Review: BAD VISION – Turn Out Your Sockets LP


Turn Out Your Sockets LP
Adagio 830

It´s a shame, that bloody Bore´n´Roll rag Rolling Stone didn´t react to the gauntlet I slapped in their face with my last review for the Debut LP of BAD VISION back in 2014 telling them to do a special of these Melbournists. Even more disgraceful for this boring old music jounalist farts is the fact that they did not even get hooked on my paramountly poetic hints of tanked armadillos, LSD and Roky Erickson being evident in the sound of BAD VISION having convinced me to deliver eight points back then.
Pudency, ignominy and and infamy shall overcome them for such ignorance !
So keep on digging for unreleased output from Dylan´s armpits you old men, bad luck you´ll subsequently also not be able to understand why BAD VISION are able to even surpass their prior ouput with “Turn Out Your Sockets” and clock in for nine points now, steadily oscillating between the poles of Pop, Punk and Garage like a love letter written to the PIXIES by Jay Reatard and stamped by the FEELIES.
