24th MAY: AWESOME COLOR – Massa Hypnos (Ecstatic Peace) – Psych-garage colour from North Americans Awesome Color. New York bite fused with a touch of loose MC5 Detroit attitude. Barbed and biting, raw and messy, not too raw or messy, nailed down just right – plenty of fuzz, a touch of stomp, nothing that radically different, just right in the zone lo-fi garage rock with a touch of extra colour in there with the suss and bite. A million times better than all those Black Rebel Strokes and such that they’re always trying to sell us...  Grizzled? Yeah, like that, convincing real deal once more, third album as good as the other two, out on Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace lavel once more, UK dates apparently coming un in June – www.ecstaticpeace.com 

THE MEN THAT WILL NOT BE BLAMED FOR NOTHING – Now That’s What I Call Steampunk! (Leather Apron) - Steam punk? In terms of music, the notion is a strange one, in terms of Victorian looking computers that appear like HG Wells time machines, or records released on wax cylinder or men with big sideboard whiskers and bowler hats then fine, music though, how should it all sound?  The Men That Will Not are stomping around with some raw recorded-live-in-the-studio sounding London punk that flirts with vagabonds and street urchins, with bloomin’ great big dirty fingernails and Malcolm McLaren style down the good old East End rock’n roll swindle Victorian music hall punk rock consternation. Living their dreams through the power of steam (and a lot of silliness).  Not really sure how serious they are who’s making a monkey out of the 19th century and what with all the friggin’ in the riggin’ and Charlie Darwin what the ‘ell have yer done? Who let these men out and contradicting the bible is what it is. Can steam punk be made with raw riffs like this? Surely this is blasphemy, words fail us sir, that bloke Andy Heintz from Creaming Jesus and some other people on the run from 2010 with traditional Victorian gentlemen’s boasting songs and all kinds of outrageous bedlam. The sound of  ’76 punk rock... 1876... www.myspace.com/blamedfornothing

21st MAY:  SHONEN KNIFE – Super Group (Damnably) – The all girl Japanese band here with their fourteenth earworm of an album. Super Group is that almost charming bubblegum punky pop of theirs, that infectiously kooky sound and those offbeat songs, this time with an added love of 70’s heavy metal that’s added some extra bite and some killer Godzilla-crushing guitar riffs to their sugar sweet sound. Like a gang Sabbath flavoured Budgie riffs pushed through a the punk-pop blender they found in a super dayglo Wonka chocolate just next to strawberry milkshake land, and all with a touch of extra Deerhoof sweetness sprinkled on top. Some if it is a little hit and miss, but hey, when they do hit, they’re sounding better than ever, dangerously infectious, sugar sweet, beer biscuits, kooky Japanese girls and metal riffs... www.damnably.com or www.myspace.com/shonenknife
