Jack White – Fear Of The Dawn

I have to admit that the latest LP from Jack White, Fear Of The Dawn, somewhat slipped under my particular radar, likely because after previous record Boarding House Reach my interest in the Third Man Records boss seemed to have reached its end (see my review of that to get an idea why). Having heard... Continue Reading →

Mark Le Gallez – Mark Two

Since the release of his debut solo album, Mark One, some four decades ago Mark Le Gallez has had quite a musical career - from touring California with mod power pop band The Risk, to dalliances with psychedelic indie around Europe with The Sacred Hearts, kicking up a garage rock storm closer to home and...

HOWL – Beneath The Surface

HOWL are a band I’ve been aware for a few years - based in Jersey the trio looked set to make a splash a couple of years ago but injury and then the pandemic put a rather sudden brake on things. Now though their debut single, Beneath The Surface, has landed and offered a taste... Continue Reading →

Dribbler – Biglife! (single)

A year ago phrases like Second Wave... Continue Reading →

Now though they are back with another single, with some Slade like ‘phonetic’ spelling in its... Continue Reading →

The Damned – The Rockfield Files

The last few years have seen something of a renaissance for early British punks The Damned as they released their first album in ten years, Evil Spirits, sold out the London Palladium for a night of 1000 vampires and, in recent weeks, announced a reunion of their original line up for a series of shows...

The Fuzztones – NYC

Not many bands make it to 40 years but that’s just what 2020 marks for The Fuzztones (albeit with a few line ups changes in that time) and to celebrate the event the band, led for that whole time by singer, guitarist and harmonica player, Rudi Protrudi, have released an album paying tribute to their...
