ROSIE JONES

Band:WILD BILLY CHILDISH AND THE MUSICIANS OF THE BRITISH EMPIREE
Album:ROSIE JONES
Label:SOUNDFLAT RECORDS
Format:7 Inch Vinyl
Genre:Garage Punk

Billy Childish should nowadays be well known for everybody. This man truly got a lot of various musical things going,
and that with the most different artists and bands.The arguably most important stages in his musical biography from
1977 till this day: THE POP RIVETS, THE MILKSHAKES, THE MIGHTY CEASERS, THEE HEADCOATS, THE
BUFF MEDWAYS and now BILLY CHILDISH & THE MUSICANS OF BRITISH EMPIRE!!! That this English
Gentleman, who amongst others acted as music producer for GOLDENE ZITRONEN, HOLLY GOLIGHTLY, is very
busy goes without saying. He has written both poems and prose and he has created, as independent artist,
woodcuts and paintings. He released with all these bands and other side-projects more than 100 sound carriers.
Artists like WHITE STRIPES, KURT COBAIN (RIP), GRAHAM COXON etc. are referring to him as a source of
inspiration. For his current combo, BILLY CHILDISH & THE MUSICANS OF BRITISH EMPIRES, BILLY CHILDISH
(guitar and voice) could enlist MR. WOLF HOWARD (THE BUFF MEDWAYS, THE PRIME MOVERS, THE
SOLARFLARES, DAGGERMEN, JAMES TAYLOR QUARTET) for the instrumentation on drums and NURSE JULIE
(THE ALINES.) for bass and moreover, her enchanting, harmonic but also sappy female voice. The two tracks on
this 45, ROSIE JONES and LITTLE MISS CONTRARY are about 2 absolute 60's GaragePunk winner with a
cracking lacing of R'N'B! Furthermore the two tune wedgies convince through the first-class arrangement and the
harmonic singing in two voices. The mid 60's orientated and excellent songwriting satisfies once again, as a matter
of course with this line-up. In addition SOUNDFLAT RECORDS reflects with this release the tend of the band to
wear uniforms, for which reason we come up with a very special idea for this 45, something which has persuaded
instantly the grandmaster BILLY CHILDISH and his squad too! BILLY CHILDISH & THE MUSICANS OF THE
BRITISH EMPIRE are here exclusively available as DRESSDOLLS (which can be cut out and dressed like the - at
most for children - popular DRESSDOLLS in the late 50's to mid 70's). With the included modish sheets of paper
(which can be cut out too) we have leant against the authentic fashion in a way how it appeals to BILLY CHILDISH
and his squad as well. On the one hand you have the possibility to dress BILLY CHILDISH & THE MUSICANS
OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE up with their original stage uniforms, change their clothes for a trip to a sunny beach or to
wrap them in a smart 60's look. CRISTIAN NÖRTEM (APESVILLE ARTWORKS) was responsible for the authentic
graphical realization. He designed the FOLDING COVER, the DRESSDOLLS as well as the bathing wear in a
virtuoso way and in high quality. So help yourself before the run on these terrific limited (1000 pieces) single of the
last band of the very busy grandmaster BILLY CHILDISH and his MUSICANS OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE begins!
 

 

 

ALWAYS WHY

Band:CAVES
Album:ALWAYS WHY
Label:SPECIALIST SUBJECT
Format:cd
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

This new album is a big change in songwriting style for Caves, now writing remotely via GarageBand demo exchanges, with
band members split between the UK and USA (rather than their previous home, Bristol). This new approach sees the band
exploring a greater depth in sounds and expression than the straight forward pop punk of previous recordings. Lyrically the
album's still as personal as ever touching on the heartbreak of border crossings, queer love at 16 and coming to terms with bad
relationship choices.
Produced by Peter Miles at Middle Farm Studios in rural Devon over the summer months. The recording captures their tight,
fuzzed out pop punk akin to 90s favourites like The Breeders, Nirvana and Blue era Weezer.

EIGHT NIGHTS

Band:GRAND POP
Album:EIGHT NIGHTS
Label:SPECIALIST SUBJECT
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Alt Rock

Formed back in 2012 with members at a respective crossroads with current projects, Warren Mallia hadn't played guitar in 6
months, bassist Tom Hussey found himself in a new city with no musical outlet and despite being busy fronting Caves, Lou
Hanman was itching play drums again. The result of this was Grand-Pop!
Since 2012 a lot has changed, members no longer live in the same cities (drummer, Lou doesn't live in the same continent!).
And despite a number of live shows supporting the likes of Iron Chic, PUP & Muncie Girls over the years, Grand-Pop have
never been the most prolific band. Eight Nights is the perfect document of 'what was' and 'what could be' for three friends
making music together.
Sticking to a to the point, power pop formula (think Weezer, Superchunk & The Promise Ring), this record rages by in a truly
gratifying, sing along fashion. With shows planned for April 2017 who knows what could be in the future for Grand-Pop. If it's
another eight great pop songs in the next four years then maybe that's good enough!
One time pressing 300 copies

 

 

IVE GOT THIS

Band:AUSTEROS
Album:IVE GOT THIS
Label:SPECIALIST SUBJECT
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Alt Rock

Following last year's debut full length, Painted Blue, Bristol punk rock band Austeros have 5 new songs in the
form of new EP, I've Got This!
The EP charts the past 6 months for singer / guitarist, Jeremy Pitcher. Relocating to Bristol from Cheltenham in a
bid to save his mental health and navigating the current political climate.
Produced by their friend Tim Rowing‐Parker (of the band Woahnows), the band wanted a real back to basics
recording taking influence from early albums by The Lemonheads, REM and other late 80's indie & punk.
Perfectly complimenting and not overshadowing Austeros' simple pop songwriting.
First pressing 500 copies, clear vinyl with screen printed B-Side

Sexy Audio Deviance for Punk Bums

Band:CLOSET DISCO QUEEN
Album:Sexy Audio Deviance for Punk Bums
Label:DIVISION
Format:7 Inch Vinyl
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Forged in the darkest recesses of the mind, Closet Disco Queen is the diabolical offspring of Jona Nido and Luc Hess, two
musicians who have traipsed to the very borders of insanity with such unique musical entities as Coilguns, Kunz and The Ocean
and yet lived to tell the tale. Intense and driven by the same exploratory spirit that fueled the progressive rock bands of the late
70s, Closet Disco Queen are a duo that, even on record, sound like an army. On this brand new 3 songs ep the Swiss masters of
psych-kraut-stoner-indie madness are offering what they do best: unique tunes of pure demented rock’n’roll awesomeness. The
duo gets better and better as the songs goes, playing huge 70s riffs with a pure punk energy and burning everything to the
ground with a real feeling of urgency. This is not your common and overheard stoner rock bullshit, this is music with soul, this is
music with guts, this is CLOSET DISCO QUEEN.

King of Kings - 20th Anniversary Edition

Band:TYRANT
Album:King of Kings - 20th Anniversary Edition
Label:BLOOD AND IRON
Format:CD/DVD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Classic U.S. Power Metal band TYRANT, that were a household name on the Metal Blade label in the 80s, along with Slayer, Trouble, etc. released later on in the mid 90s a new album in a german label called King of Kings. A few years back, it was reissued on CD with live bonus tracks and on vinyl with different cover art. Now Blood & Iron releases the ultimate reissue with a bonus DVD. For the first time the cover art was done like the band originally intended. Included were 5 bonus tracks (Dio, Motorhead, Sabbath etc. cover versions) recorded in the 90s and a DVD including a TV show in a cable TV in 1990 plus two bootleg recorded shows in 1985 (opening for Slayer) and 1992. On this third album the band matures to a more Doom influenced sound where the Sabbath influence is more evident and could match perfectly with the sound of exlabelmates Trouble.
Limited edition of only 500 copies never again subject to reissue....

 

 

TO THE GALLOWS

Band:DEVIL
Album:TO THE GALLOWS
Label:SOULSELLER
Format:cd
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

4 years after the 2013 sophomore we present the third fullength by the wizards of the riff from Norway!
The band comments: "Bands always say that their newest effort is their greatest. We say fuck that. This is a heavy
rock album, and it's up to the listener to decide how good it is. We're darned proud of it, though, and think it sums up
the first era of Devil pretty good, with maybe our most heavy metal parts so far, but still building around The Riff, the
main ingredient in any heavy metal song writing. We like to think we've come a long way these years, and are happy
to end our first trilogy with this album. We're more of a band than ever, and joint efforts have made further
improvements to the band. We'd say this is an album still for fans of Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Witchfinder
General, etc, but also touching into the 1981 NWOBHM quite a bit, especially on the title track."
