BOTOX RATS
Nasty Business LP
Wanda Records

If there´s one person in this world (besides my wife, we live in emancipated times) allowed to yell, scream and screech at me, it´s Marco from and to Palumbo-Rodrigues, the number one 8X12 bogey gunner de nos jours and new age “Führers Of The New Wave” re-incarnation troop commander of the next rotten league of meth mucked PUSHERS addicts.
Looking at all the classy musical epitomes that this man has to offer, the real truth behind all those fake news of the day only having 24 hours has to be that it´s actually 72 hours instead. Don´t let the bastards fool you on this !

Review: NASTY RUMOURS – Singles LP

a1328059166_10

NASTY RUMOURS
Singles
Wanda Records

Four multiplied by seven is twelve as Adam Riese and Casino Steel already knew when having developed the formula for the Vinyl Spin Factor reduction in inverse ratio to the consumption of ice cold hop & malt beverages.
An established method now picked up by the Powerpop Heartbreakers of the Bern Razorblade Forge NASTY RUMOURS to collect their Singles released on Wanda Records and No Front Teeth from 2014 to 2016 in the joint-friendly but liver-thrilling 12″ format, less time to turn over the singles, more time to drink.

Review: RADIOHEARTS – Daytime Man EP

RADIOHEARTS
Daytime Man EP
Wanda Records

The fifth round of the Long Beach “Hit after Hit” Popcorn Bag Wonders and once again the air is getting rarer for their opponents. Don´t ask me why I haven´t written about those blokes yet, maybe it´s because the almighty Lord Rutledge has already said everything great that is to say about them, maybe it´s just my general work flow modus of only posting reviews every two to four months but at least here it is, my five cent contribution to the musical industry.

Review: GEE STRINGS – I´m So Gee LP

a1132239783_10

GEE STRINGS
I´m So Gee LP
Ghost Highway / KOTJ / El Beasto Recordings (Spain)
Adrenaline Fix Music (France)
Wanda Records (Germany)

Old love doesn´t rust and the GEE STRINGS have always been one of mine since they´ve fired their first Chinese Rocks into the drivelling 1977 junkie romance crowd from their then High Society International label bunker back in 1996.
Now they´re back with their first full-length since “A Bunch Of Bugs” ten years ago and totally hold up to their big beat “Rip Her To L.A.M.F. Shreds” promise given on the “I Will Get You” Single on No Front Teeth in 2015 and on their first taste of delightful doom in this decade dating back to 2013 when they spit out a Split with Scott “Deluxe” Drake & the World´s Strongest Men.
Counting on those canapes I´ve expected nothing else but Ready Steady Yobbo Snubs honoured with the Cross of the Blitzkrieg Bop Order on the golden strap of Pirate Love.

ESCALATOR HATERS
s/t LP
Wanda Records

Salute the New Wave of the New Wave of the New Wave with me for another fizzy flurry of JACK & THE RIPPERS Snot Pop adventures ringing at your front door backpacked with a double dosed pint of BUZZCOCKS sherbert crackers.
Comin´ from the land of milk and tax dodging these three chord and a half veterans are buffing up their punky crew cuts with a gloopy domestic handful of  NEGATIV “Glitter Hair Cream” and just the right amount of Howard Devoto veneration grumpily snarling in his Top Of The Pops lead pencil looking microphone.

Top Of The Snots: THE NOT AMUSED – Flat Broke MLP

THE NOT AMUSED
Flat Broke MLP
Wanda Records

Put up or shut up, it´s no secret that I simply fell in love with the THE NOT AMUSED both on a personal and on a musical basis since having heard their “Flaunting Their Talents” 12inch back in 2007 and luckily being able to organize some gigs with them back in my tiny booking activity days. But seriously folks, even from an objective perspective, how could one not love them ?
Not only do they have the perfect musical suss belting out a monster mash blizzard of record collector´s Powerpop wet dreams shaking some punked up Teenage Treats action with the cream of the Gin Tonic intoxicated Mod Revival crop,  but also the appropriate style and attitude reflecting this music they play. A definite treasure that cannot be valued highly enough in times of bands really daring to wear tracksuits on stage !

Review: NERVE BUTTON – s/t LP

NERVE BUTTON
s/t LP
Wanda Records

Filthy jokes rolled up in a greasy bacon rind of magnificent FORGOTTEN REBELS bad taste and ambiguous TEENAGE HEAD sidenotes about genitals served with Junkshop handclaps from the local pawnbroker and a droned out copy of the REAL KIDS Debut LP at side.
If those guys are talking about a trip to the rig there´s no job related training event to be planned but an alcoholically indicated intoxication instead leading to an impressive sexual accident with the not necessarily attractive neighborhood milf.

The Raunch & Riot Of The CRAZY SQUEEZE: A Euro Tour Report by Sir Frankie Delmane

16

Fanzines, bloody hell ! It´s almost nine months ago now that I´ve tried multiple times at and at various resources to find a warm and cozy paper issue place for this CRAZY SQUEEZE tour report by Sir Frankie Delmane to creep in and be taken care of just to splendidly run aground.
Either I got offered the page space of a shopping list (if you don´t buy more than a piece of cheese and just a little salami) or I´ve been informed about guest writers not being asked for, sometimes I even got no answer at all or things just didn´t get sorted out the right way.
Nevertheless I still think that this tour report should be seen and read as it is perfectly echoing the passion and enthusiasm of the CRAZY SQUEEZE on stage. That “Glorious Pub Junk Glam’n’Roll providing you a rare and special kind of bliss only comparable to being laid to rest in the cuddly womb of a wet five dollar whore.” is really dripping out of every single letter noted down here.
As the CRAZY SQUEEZE have just released their “To The Lonely Ones / Red Rosie” 7inch on Pure Punk and will be coming back to Europe this autumn, I thought that this report may be a fine taster for all the undecided to be discipulized into unrestrained outta control CRAZY SQUEEZE junkies with, even despite such dumb and childish things like actuality.
Last but not least a million thanks to Frankie for his work writing this !

crazy squeeze 3
The Crazy Squeeze- the proverbially postmodern pub rock masterpiece, took our show on the road this past November, bringing our brand of direct hit hooks- a sonic hybrid of our musical heroes from The Boys UK, Little Bob Story, Heartbreakers, Eddie & The Hot Rods, Stooges, Chuck Berry and Little Richard- merged with subtle hints of R&B, Soul, hillbilly music, and some shots of noise for anarchistic fullness- to towns across Europe, in an effort to entertain and galvanize those interested in having a momentary fling with catharsis, transcendence, and the overall need to get drunk, stupid, and sloppy. Three and a half weeks of nightly debauchery, debasement, and self-destruction seemed to lead the way, as we crawled and scrapped through language barriers, dietary challenges, traffic transgressions, and the general quest for some sort of avoidance of our everyday lives back home in Angry America. We were well-oiled, ready, packed and pleased to be going places few of us have been, some of us have seen many times, yet all would count as new adventures for a lifetime.

Review: LES SUZARDS – s/t LP

LES SUZARDS
s/t LP
Wanda Records

Are you breaking into shivvers, feeling those chills excessively rattling your bones and jerking your muscles, involuntary and almost spastic ? Are you suffering from effusive perspiration always leading you to chugalug unhealthy amounts of beverages with an alcohol content way above 40% ?

If so, don´t worry, you´re lucky, it´s neither Ebola nor Dengi, actually you´re infected by Algomania, that reckless Teenage Fever initially having occured in Rouen, France in the year of our Snot 1977, bread and spread by the legendary DOGS, four marauding rowdy rockers with too much class for the neighborhood and impressive viral distribution properties which have now infiltrated the LES SUZARDS´ stem cells as well generating a new evil hearted breed of classy french Punk Rockers for Linda to shake with.

LA FLINGUE
Piss-Tape Zero-Quatre 12″
Wanda Records / P.Trash Records (Vinyl Version)
Crapoulet Records / No Glory Records (Tape Version)

Still gettin´ high taking a nip from grandma´s secret Klosterfrau Melissengeist stock and stealing her rheumatoid arthritis medication like a pitiful mediocre Darby Crash copycat ?

Then improve to the next level and step right “In Die Zukunft” by starting to snort the LA FLINGUE own hallicugenic Idiot Box mixture of klebstoff and piss to have your brain blowjobbed im Politbüro by a double-headed Hamster Norvegicus.
