Baby Godzilla – Knockout Machine

As the squealing, drawled feedback of opener A Good Idea Realised begins to bleed through, you can almost imagine the Baby G lot straining at their chains, aching to be free. The blood-frothing punk charge hits with the force of a truck; riffs are tearing and utterly demented, whilst the vocals are harsh hair-ripping, teeth-gnashing soundbites of frustration and madness..

Big Ups/Live It Out/Le Galaxie – Singles round up

Three bands you need to get informed on right away – Big Ups and their punk rock styles, Live It Out and their basement-wrecking good times and Le Galaxie basically recreating all the music from Hobo With A Shotgun vs The Rocky IV soundtrack. Yes.

Jetplane Landing – Don’t Try

Six years hasn’t done anything to dampen Jetplane Landing’s enthusiasm – far from it. The energy levels, much like those on Backlash Cop, are through the roof and orbiting a space station on their 4th album, Don’t Try.

Honningbarna – Verden Er Enkel

Honningbarna (Honey Kids) are an unrelenting, turbo-charged organ of pure energy. Similar to fellow kinsmen Kvelertak, they sing in their native tongue and not once does it hamper the enjoyment and sheer brilliance of Verden Er Enkel (The World Is Simple). From the bite of the discordant, Refused-aping opener of Dodtid (Downtime) to the scrappy punk rock adrenalin punch of Gi Oss Kick (Give Us A Kick), Verden Er Enkel a rapid-fire assault to the senses.

The Computers – Love Triangles, Hate Squares

Almost every review of Love Triangles, Hate Squares by The Computers has probably started off pointing out the differences between this and their debut, This Is The Computers. It’s glaringly obvious mind you, so there does seem reason to mention it. Gone are the screams, almost whittled away to nothing. Gone is the frantic shredding, with the hardcore-punk tendencies thrown from the train. Instead, hello soul – hello 60s organ-sounds – hello rock ‘n roll – hello Chuck Berry!

Mayors of Miyazaki – Holy Cop

Brimming with a sunny disposition, shades of Mineral, Cap ‘N Jazz and a guitar tone that will have you reaching for your copy of Variations on Swing; the oddly named Mayors of Miyazaki (possible reference to this dude) are an unpredictable but intriguing package.

Arms And The Man – Blood Junkie (Debut Video)

Hertfordshire-based Every Time I Die-loving, popular beat-combo Arms And The Man have gone and recorded a video! Blood Junkie depicts a little girl traveling to the band’s show and commencing to have a one-man (girl) mosh pit – all flailing limbs, swinging hair and seems to be copying every move made my madcap frontman, Ben Davies.

Golden Tanks – R.D.H.B.

Looking for something that bursts from the starting blocks? Want something that’s quite content to jump up and down with absolutely no decorum, shouting, swearing, screaming and roaring in your face? That barely lets up it’s animalistic ferocity? Oh hi Golden Tanks
