Review: The Kimberly Steaks- Big Noise (Brassneck/ Bloated Kat/ Cat’s Claw/ Punk Rock Radar)
Keep Track of the Time

1M ago
Right, I will limit this review’s Green Day references by getting out of the way at this stage that the Kimberly Steaks are obviously big fans of Kerplunk. Glasgow’s The Kimberly Steaks kinda sound more East Bay than actual East Bay bands, partly due to the Billie Joe-esque vocals, but there is a lot more ..read more

Bloated Kat boss Servo Jefferson has a knack for finding good pop punk bands and giving them an outlet for releasing their music. TV Cop hails from Bloated Kat’s home state of Iowa, and they play good-time party punk of the ilk you might have found in the old Awesomefest days. “Whale Jr.” is the ..read more

Review: Cherym- Take It Or Leave It (Alcopop!)
Keep Track of the Time
by brownd17

Cherym’s debut full length LP starts out as a huge pop punk record, instantly enamoring me to the Northern Ireland trio. The music is both poppy and gritty, catchy and infectious, as well as powerful and edgy. I was ready to write a glowing review and consider adding this to my list of contenders for ..read more

Review: Jaguero- ‘New Love’ EP (Epidemic)
Keep Track of the Time
by brownd17
1M ago
Italy’s Jaguero return with their sophomore EP, following up 2022’s “Worst Weekend Ever.” And the past two years seem to have turned Jaguero into a very different band. Where that first EP featured big, broad, soaring punk songs that still had an intimate feel, this EP is edgier and grittier, yet mostly still quite melodic ..read more

Review: La Famiglia- FTG WWD (self-released)
Keep Track of the Time
by brownd17
1M ago
Hailing from down under, in the Melbourne suburb of Ferntree Gully, La Famiglia unleashes a powerful garage punk assault. Deep fuzz rules the guitars and bass, while front man Luke Seymoup belts out some powerful singing and shouting, in a Jello Biafra meets Ian MacKaye sort of way. The songs are punctuated by shouted gang ..read more

Review: Demoted- Shit for Brains (Bad Channels)
Keep Track of the Time
by brownd17
1M ago
Demoted, from Brooklyn, New York, are an old school hardcore punk band that may remind you of bands like Minor Threat, with angry shouted vocals and punchy powerful instrumentals, though they’re not quite as speedy as those bands of 40+ years ago. The best example of this is on the title track, which is easily ..read more

This time in the Scandinavian history hour, we’re heading back to the ‘60s. And we’re going up north in Norway, inside the arctic circle. To a band that in fact called themselves the Arctics before American slang got them to change their name to the Pussycats. American slang for vagina and jazz musicians, respectively. The ..read more

Review: Big Mess- Cleaning Up With (Specialist Subject)
Keep Track of the Time
by brownd17
2M ago
Danish band Big Mess managed to get on my top ten list of records from 2023 before I even got to writing up the review. This garage punk album starts with the groovy “Groove”. It has the ‘60s tambourine infused sound with cool handclaps and guitar licks in the same vein as fellow Scandinavians the ..read more
