The Hardtits – Demo 2008 (Jamendo)

The Hardtits… Jazz, Punk, Rock, Ska and an excellent, if slightly random, name for your average English listener. Theoretically there’s absolutely nothing to dislike here, except perhaps the Jazz but even that could be forgiven in light of the rest of the claimed styles and the fact that the French actually seem to do upbeat Jazz quite well (i.e. Trio). Theory and reality though are a million miles apart as any fule know and with this lot the intent isn’t really reflected in the end result. Read the rest of this entry »


Some single lovin’.

10Marxe Eskerda – Hitlipollas

Can’t really review a three minute, Spanish Punk single in any real depth but it’s worth hearing nonetheless. No idea what the lyrics are about but even with the soundbite from Herr Hitler at the intro I’m willing to assume it isn’t a homage to the late, mono-balled lad himself. Give it a go, Punk as fuck.




1200Radiographia – Falso MC

Brazilian Hip Hop single with a meandering feel to it offset by some solid vocals, of course it’s in Portugese so I’m just assuming that his lyrics actually make sense but worth a try anyway.





pbDoc – Pirate Bay

A novelty Electro-Pop offering dedicated to those fine folks in the Piracy world, most notably Pirate Bay, not spectacular by any means but well intended and a pleasant enough bit of throwaway Pop. Arggggg.






Guarapita – Si Hay!

Guarapita – Si Hay! (Jamendo)

Reviewing albums that are nearly 4 years old? Yeah, bleeding edge folks, expect me to regress even further and start extolling the virtues of 1990’s Indie some time soon. Well, don’t actually because it was largely shite. Anyway, Guarapita have a couple of newer albums, unsurprisingly but this is the one that I managed to trip over in a drunken, stoned haze one night and nothing inspires a soul like skanking around your room at 3 in the morning to French/Venezuelan Ska Punk. Plus free music stands outside of time and space, maaan, largely because nobody’s ever heard of most of the bands anyway. Read the rest of this entry »

Atomic Suplex distort the universe…

14 01 2009


A few free tracks from Atomic Suplex, masters of ‘ROCK’ of the sort that was always meant to be. If you can get through the insane amount of distortion and start playing air guitar it’s not too bad at all. Plus their lead singer wears a helmet, which is always good.
