New Monday


Wolf Alice are a rock band from London who have only released one EP and a handful of singles so far. I don’t feature much new guitar-driven rock music here because frankly I find a lot of it boring and predictable, but I can still be turned on by some big noisy riffage like these these tracks from their latest EP Creature Songs out later this month.

It’s all very “alternative rock” and won’t win any prizes for pushing envelopes but sometimes crashing guitars and a big chorus can still really hit the spot.

Heavvvvvy.

The Motors: Walking the thin line between New Wave and Status Quo.

This should shake the post-holiday cobwebs. I don’t really have any axe heroes but that Peter Green chap was pretty damn tasty with the gee-tar.

Something for the Weekend



It’s a Battle of the Bands between Hawkwind and The James Last Orchestra.

New Monday



Psychedelic Prog-Metal is hardly my cup of tea but London-based Purson sweeten their long-haired riffing with some solid tunes and have a hell of a lead singer in Rosie Cunningham. They would make the ideal soundtrack for an old Hammer film involving witchcraft and virgins being sacrificed on pentangles.

Is this going to be the next big thing? Time to break out the velvet flares and Dennis Wheatley novels.

Something for the Weekend



Some days you just want some big dumb rawk music and this has it all: Smoke bombs, guitar solos, tight trousers, and hairy chests. Magnificent stuff.

Something for the Weekend



You’re welcome.
