A genuine rock star since birth, Michael Monroe innately knows exactly how to sing, swagger and walk the most glamorous and colourful of walks. One Man Gang, the former Hanoi Rocks man’s brand new offering on Silver Lining Music, is all about the fun of Friday nights, seven days a week, letting your hair down (or up!) for a dirty, dangerous, damn good time, and embracing a total escape into the rock ‘n’ roll dream.
‘Propaganda’ is Vile Assembly at their most vitriolic, attacking a political system that protects the elite whilst providing an illusion of democratic choice. A system that relies upon a comatose population enthralled by the latest iPhone and mesmerised by the latest episode of Love Island.
Brit-rock darlings, Skunk Anansie finished the Bank holiday with a bang with an absolute belter of a show at the Brighton Dome. Late support was provided by the rather excellent, Nova Twins a last-minute replacement to the advertised Queen Zee.
Sheffield punk rock band BlackWaters announce new single Long Way To The Sun to be released on Friday 23 August following the success of their last single I'm Not Your Man that came out earlier this year. The track is produced by Olly Burden and Carl Barat (The Libertines) and released by Ja’rred Up Records . Long Way To The Sun positions BlackWaters in chart anthem territory with a promise of salivating releases ahead.
Tonight's 'Rotten Foxes' show will be their final show at the Brighton Pipeline, a wonderful but tiny little venue hidden at the end of Little East Street. Only the early birds have any chance of catching the show as space is limited to around 50 heads at a push and a squeeze.
The Darkness have released their brand new single ‘Heart Explodes’. The song got its first play on Jo Wiley’s Radio 2 show last night, and also features in Spotify’s New Music Friday today. The track is taken from their jaw-droppingly ambitious quasi-sci-fi concept album Easter Is Cancelled, out on October 4th via Cooking Vinyl.
The Dwarves whirlwind tour of the UK ends tonight at Camden's Underworld, after dates across Ireland and the UK and a trip to Blackpool for this year's Rebellion Festival. Let's get one thing straight to the Dwarves 'PC' is the device you watch porn on! They're here to take the immoral high ground and that's exactly what tonight's crowd wants.
Sick Joy have shared their new single, ‘Vibe Sucker’. The release comes alongside the announcement of their new EP, Them Days, which will be released on September 13th via SO Recordings, and an extensive headline tour with dates throughout October and November.
Tonight's show was a celebration of Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers one and only studio album, L.A.M.F. With a blistering line up featuring Water Lure (the last surviving Heartbreaker), Mick Rossi (ex Slaughter and the Dogs), Mark Laff (Generation X) and Nigel Mead (The Duelists) these songs were given a new breath of life and delivered in style to the lucky numbers who swelled the walls of the 100 Club. Joined tonight by glam punks 'The Derellas' who put on one hell of a show themselves. Here's the full review in pictures from the night.
