    [engl] Archie and the Bunkers is Emmet (drums/vocals) and Cullen (organ/vocals). Formed in Cleveland, Ohio, in 2013, the teenaged brothers began recording music in their basement, self-producing their first two EPs with a raw garage-punk sound that draws heavily from their diverse musical influences, ranging from jazz organ greats like Jimmy Smith, and Richard ‘Groove’ Holmes, to punk icons Dead Boys (they opened for original member Cheetah Chrome earlier this year), The Stooges, The Screamers, and more. On stage, the siblings attack their songs with a frenetic energy that whips the audience into a frenzy. The unique growl of fouteen year old Cullen’s whirring, overdriven organ and the driving beat of sixteen year old Emmett’s four-piece drum kit leave gig-goers in shock at the sonic assault levied by a group made up of just two boys. As a local reviewer wrote, the boys “sometimes draw initial attention from a crowd because of their tender years. But their ages belie the talent and powerhouse show they put on every time they hit a stage.” The 12 songs on this, their debut album, were recorded at the famed Ghetto Recorders in Detroit, with legendary producer/engineer Jim Diamond capturing that unique Archie sound that’s been dubbed ‘Hi-Fi Organ Punk.’ Fourteen-year-old Emmett, however, prefers to describe their sound as, ‘rock’n’roll that’s been peeled back to its raw foundation’. Having played a number of high profile gigs in recent months, including support to The Sonics at the Beachland Ballroom in their home town this summer, these kids are scorching hot and ready to break out, not just out of Cleveland, but internationally. ‘The novelty of their ages drops away the minute they begin to play,’ says Matt Fields, manager at the Beachland. ‘These guys are frickin’ stars, man. They are total pros. The first time I saw them my jaw hit the floor. Every time they play, within two songs everybody at the bar has left their seats to go stand in front of the stage to watch and listen to them. I haven't felt this strongly about a new band in a long time. They have no pretention, no inhibition. They are just having so much fun with the music. They are mind-blowing players. And such nice kids."

    [engl] Iconic California psychedelic punk legends The Chocolate Watchband are touring to celebrate the release of their new album (released by Dirty Water Records), led by founding and current members, vocalist David Aguilar and guitarist Tim Abbott, plus Gary Andrijasevich on drums. Second generation fans, guitarist Derek See and bassist Alec Palao (Grammy-nominated producer/ historian ), bring their enthusiasm and love for the music to the table to help weave THE sound which both faithfully recreates the sonic energy and tone of the original recordings, as well as giving a rare edge to ?new material that is a logical progression to the bands legacy. Documented as influencing legendary bands far and wide within the psych, garage, and punk scene for the past 50 years, their live performances sizzle with the same outrageous audacity of the late 60s scene they helped usher into the San Francisco Bay area ballroom scene. The group was also seen as featured bands in the 1967 cult films Riot on the Sunset Strip and The Love-Ins, and their powerful stage presence continues to the present day in a timeless stage show which is oozing electric cool-aid energy. While the bands' music was a cherished secret of record collectors for many years, the music is now available to be heard by everyone, which has ushered in a new fourth generation of fans around the world, who hear the Watchband sound as it has reverberated into the psyche of the class of 2018 psychedelic bands. Their newest songs resonate with genuine political rebellion in our current times, which can be heard in the lyrics of the new song ‘Judgment Day'."I wrote 'Judgment Day' as the country was still in recovery," says lead vocalist and founding member David Aguilar of the days following the 2008 market crash. "Families were living in their cars. It was a terrible time for the American dream. It resulted in the anger that put the current president into the White House. The Who were wrong, Americans can get fooled again!"

    First EP plus two extra songs

    [engl] Dirty Fences offer a satisfying and youthful obsession with early KISS and Motley Crüe, then discovering the fortunate truth of The Dictators and Ramones. Dirty Fences is comprised of Jack Daves (vocals/guitar), Max Roseglass (guitar), Max Comaskey (bass), and Max Hiersteiner (drums) – yes, three Maxes and a Jack – who all met in high school growing up in Boston. One day in woodshop class Hiersteiner sliced the tip of his finger off. While the blood was still oozing out, Daves volunteered to escort him to the hospital. During that little adventure they talked about music and discovered their shared love for rebellious tunes – and they’ve been playing music together ever since. “You know in Back To The Future where Marty McFly goes on stage and he picks up the guitar and does the Chuck Berry thing for the first time and all the girls go crazy and the guys freak out – we’re like that,” singer Jack says about their live sets. Reviews describe their live show as a “phenomenon”. Vanyaland blog, for example, tells us that “the band was ever-moving across the stage…lifting guitars overhead, bowing in unison and performing semi-choreographed stage moves. Even the drummer was standing at certain points of the set". Last year saw the release of their second studio album, Full Tramp (Slovenly Recordings) along with an extensive European tour covering six countries – in which the band was robbed of all of its gear and merchandise, during a stop in Rome after playing the Coropuna venue in the Italian capital city. They relayed the news through social media and set up a GoFundMe page, which generated almost $16,000 in just 24 hours! After a short break they were back on the road in the fall with Festival appearances at Meltasia in upstate New York, at Good Vibrations in Austin, Texas and a special seventh anniversary party for Straight To Hell Apparel in Chicago, where they received free jackets, gloves and hats and even modelled them for their website. They played exclusive local shows during this time including a sold out double header with The Mummies at Music Hall of Williamsburg, a sold out New Year’s Eve performance at Berlin NYC, and sold out performance tonight with Shannon and the Clams at Baby's All Right. Around this time, the band got into discussions with Dirty Water Records about releasing two new tracks on wax, '2X2' and 'Sell Your Truth' that ultimately ended up as extra tracks on the reissue of their brilliant debut EP (originally released in 2012).

    [engl] HIPBONE SLIM & THE KNEETREMBLERS is a band that plays proper rock’n’roll! They take all the influences of original rock’n’roll, rhythm’n’blues, whatever you want to call it, and give it their own unique stamp and energy, with a garage band attitude and enthusiasm. They have somehow captured the true essence of rock’n’roll in a way that very few have been able to do in a very long time. The band is led by the ubiquitous Sir Bald Diddley (aka Hipbone Slim), on guitar and lead vocals, a man who has been described as ‘Britain’s string king’ in reference to his wild and fiery guitar style, influenced by Bo Diddley, Link Wray, Chuck Berry, Dick Dale and the like. He’s also been described as ‘Ricky Nelson gone very wrong’ (with regards to his singing!) which he, and we too, are happy to take as a compliment. Also known for his very precarious stage antics, including the infamous ‘Pea Bug’, which involves much rolling around on the floor during guitar solos! Also a part of this rock’n’roll trio is Bruce ‘Bash’ Brand, one of Britain’s, if not the world’s, finest rock’n’roll drummers. A veteran of such bands as the Milkshakes and Headcoats (as sidekick and comedic foil to Billy Childish), as well as Holly Golightly’s band, the Masonics, and more, he has also worked with the Pretty Things, Downliners Sect, Wreckless Eric, Mungo Jerry and made two albums with Link Wray along the way. Then there’s Gastus Receedus (bass/harmonica), who has played in many a band (Big Wigs, Arousers, Playboys, etc) and worked with many a rock’n’roll legend – Billy Lee Riley, Sonny Burgess, Dale Hawkins, and Don & Dewey to name but a few! Hipbone Slim & The Kneetremblers have become something of a cult sensation thanks to their previous four albums of accomplished rock’n’roll fundamentalism and regular appearances on Mark Lamarr’s radio shows over the years. (Their collaboration with Mama Rosin received rave reviews in both The Guardian and The Independent.) Harsh critics may single out their unwillingness to deviate from the primitive rhythm’n’blues blueprint as their downfall, but this would be a failure to understand the objective of the group. To put it simply, as already stated, Hipbone Slim & the Kneetremblers play rock’n’roll music. And they do it better than pretty much anyone else in the UK right now, if not the entire damn world.

    Let Me Out

    [engl] Decamped deep in the forest outside of Berlin, one of rock and roll’s most under the radar yet omnipresent figures has put the finishing touches on his latest solo record, but in fact traces of Mark Sultan can be found around the world. Previously released by celebrated labels such as In The Red, Last Gang, Crypt, Fat Possum, Dirtnap, Goner, Sub Pop, Vice, Bomp!, Norton, Sympathy For The Record Industry, and Wick (Daptone Records), you’re bound to have come across something with Sultan’s name on it, where over the course of multiple decades he’s compiled an insane discography built from the strength of multiple albums, side projects and top-shelf solo efforts, always with a strong deposition towards taking classic garage rock sounds and contorting them in experimental and twisted new ways. For this most recent effort, written, recorded and produced in his own ‘Sound Imperfection’ studio in Germany, Sultan once again ups the ante, working to implement a full band and fully fleshed out instrumentation. Still encompassing the ethos of individuality and charisma that has lent him a sound that has transcended any era by which you might try to nail him down, it may be his most cohesive statement yet. Sultan has been quietly making moves for decades, earning the respect of legends like Jon Spencer and Deerhunter’s Bradford Cox, who have covered his songs and sang his accolades. Touring the world incessantly with his collaborative efforts with King Khan as King Khan & BBQ show, and with Bloodshot Bill as the Ding Dongs, his constant state of proliferation also led to involvement in Black Lips’ supergroup the Almighty Defenders, where the much mythologized band of brothers wrote, recorded and mixed eleven tracks in the span of two days. Part gospel, part soul, the resulting accomplishment was a testimony of hook-filled rhythm and blues as only Sultan could forge, a boundary-pushing fusion of genres that still defies expectation. For new record ‘Let Me Out’, Sultan lets his own voice shine more effusively than ever before. Through thirteen tracks filled with his signature moody, 60s inspired garage rock and roll, Sultan “doesn't simply revive old sounds and old excitements; he ingests them, digests them, and regurgitates them as something new and personal” (Pitchfork). His unmistakeable vocals, instantly transportive to rock’s most vintage moments, breath new life and bridge periods of time to convey the kind of music that stays with you long after its over. After all these years, ‘Let Me Out’ further cements Sultan’s ingenuity and enterprise as someone who has no chance of slowing down, but this time the world might finally be catching up.

    In Your Night Of Dreams And Other Foreboding Pleasures

    [engl] Something of a garage-rock’n’roll supergroup, The Masonics are a winning combination – featuring musicians who have done time in such legendary groups as the Milkshakes, Pop Rivets, Wildebeests, Kaisers, Headcoats, Del Monas, and more (not bad, seeing as there’s only three of ’em – namely, Mickey Hampshire, Bruce Brand and John Gibbs.) Masters of the Medway beat made famous by Mr Billy Childish, this is the group that should be the more famous one – with their better songs and better musicianship. Bruce played alongside Childish in the Pop Rivets back in the late 1970s and he and Mickey were both in the Milkshakes (in fact, it was actually Mickey & the Milkshakes originally!). Anyone who has even a passing interest in garage and beat music of the last 25 years will have come across the names of the bands in which the three members of the devilishly stylish Masonics have spent time. And, combining their previous bands’ sixties beat, US garage and instrumental stylings with a punk rock attitude, this is a group that pays attention to detail, with a talent for songwriting coming to the fore. Singer/guitarist Micky Hampshire possesses a merciless instinct for touch ing, simple, timeless rock’n’roll melodies and lyrics. The band performs with verve and precision, on record and on stage, always giving their followers their money’s worth. Bruce Brand pounds the traps like it could save your life – and sometimes I believe it very well could! John Gibbs twangs the bass strings with a gut instinct, taking you into a groove with grit and gumption. Eight albums down the line The Masonics remain more hard-hitting and vital than any group of teenage hopefuls on the scene – of that there’s no doubt.

There’s the Power Pop punch of “Cupid’s Not A Friend of Mine”, '70s AM gold sounds on “Too Soon To Fall In Love”, a bit of Psychedelia in the form of “Strange Waves”, gritty garage-punk (“I’m Your Man”) and a return to their Merseybeat roots with “Don’t Start Running Away” Boston's International ambassadors of garage rock 'n' roll, Muck and the Mires, have been described as a blend of the Hamburg era Beatles and the CBGBs era Ramones. Their songs are reminiscent of the 1960's British Invasion, all two minutes long and ALL POTENTIAL HITS! Their live show is a high energy blast of fast-paced, post-punk gritty garage rock and roll.

    Digging My Grave

    [engl] Being a feral child lost in an era of uninspiring music, the frontman of The Staggers, Wild Evel, decided to team up with members of former teenbeaters the Roadrunners to form a supergroup, with the intention of providing serious garage punk at its best. Take some of Billy Childish’s trashy guitar solos, some of the Miracle Workers’ and The Stomachmouths’ catchy melodies, add some “three-finger organ”, combine them with invisible monsters and cavemen, in the spirit of the late great Screaming Lord Sutch, and you’ll have the gist of what these guys are up to. The Trashbones have their roots in 1960s US garage punk, a time when teenagers started playing their own music, delivering their own ideas and ideals through tight and catchy lyrics telling the conservative society, “Here we are!” The sound that those ’60s proto-punks created is the same sound the four Austrian freaks play – succinct fuzz-guitars, farfisa organ, furious drumming, and wild, howling vocals that represent a one hundred per cent high-voltage rock’n’roll attitude. Apart from the actual sound that they create, Wild Evel & the Trashbones stand out with their untamed live performance, for which each member pushes his plan through. On hearing the drums you might be tempted to look for the reincarnation of Keith Moon seated at the drum stool! The overdriven fuzz guitars will blaring. And the recent addition of Fernando Terror taking over keyboard duties will fully unleash Evel to higher levels of on-stage insanity.
