Gods Of Ancient Grease Portland, oregon band lovesores certainly aren’t hedging their bets on faded glories, but you should know that scott ‘Deluxe’ Drake and Jeff Fieldhouse of the almighty Humpers are at the helm here.
The Humpers were the Heartbreakers (Thunders edition) of the 90s. True story. lovesores don’t stray too far from that sound, either. it’s bruising, fist-flying, drunk-tank rock’n’roll that lurches around with genuine bleary-eyed menace. Thick
and Violent is the real bullseye here, a prime slice of downtown sleaze, but the exquisitely titled Blue suede collar is a great Jerry lee/sex Pistols rave-up,
good girls Don’t scream is the kinda pitch-black punk ballad you might find in the darkest corner of a Dead Boys album, and exquisite kicks is a pulverising wall of guitars that you might never recover from. i’m in love with the whole thing, really.
This album will thoroughly clean your fuckin’ clock. lovesores are total sonic assassins. They could probably kill disco again, if they had to. Tommy And The Commies
SLOVENLY if you miss the days when we were all just simple dummies with simple demands out of life – two-minute rock’n’roll songs, bubblegum, speed, lost weekends – then Tommy and The commies are the band for you. sorta like the canadian Briefs, they play catchy, herky-jerky punk tunes about how unpopular they are with girls. Perfecto.
Sinister Sermons Beneath the shock-rock veneer of outrageous, feminist-baiting song titles like sledgehammer
abortion and a Hole is a Hole lies a red-hot rock n’ roll band with Thin lizzy licks and a killdozer-y penchant for corrosive, sledgehammer death-punk. it’s probably worth the shunning you’ll get for owning it. This band are ruining their own lives, might as well let ‘em ruin yours, too. lord Dahu You Can Run But You Can’t Hide
lORDDahu.banDcamp.cOm imagine what would happen if you mixed the tree-trunk thump of Hellhammer with the overdriven, drug-addled garage punk of The Dwarves and the creepy acid metal guitars of chrome, then left the monstrosity to rot in the woods. That’s this record. it’s incredible. super god
of evil should be the new national anthem for whatever country you’re in.
MOTORPUNK Tank will never make it to the cover of classic
rock magazine, but the fact of the matter is they are the led zeppelin of bullet-belt bands, the rolling stones of crusty headbangers, the Pink Floyd of hardcore beer drinkers and hellraisers, and this thoroughly scalding collection of battleready rockers is a towering testament to their lasting influence. it will have you stepping on landmines for days.
Lovesores: total sonic assassins.
