Trashed Ambulance and Charlie Bit My Finger cover each other in new singles!

Back in 2018, Alberta’s Trashed Ambulance and Belgium’s Charlie Bit My Finger played a few shows together surrounding their Pouzza Fest appearances. For some reasons, during that trek they came up with the idea of covering each other. Fast forward 3 years to see today the releases of Cow A Bunga, performed by Trashed Ambulance, and Charlie Bit My Finger’s rendition of Metronome. Check out the songs at the links below:

Trashed Ambulance – Cow A Bunga

Charlie Bit My Finger – Metronome

Word on the street is that these songs might be part of a future EP to come out soon on Montreal’s Thousand Islands Records.

About Trashed Ambulance:

Formed in 2014, Trashed Ambulance has defied all odds, member changes and hangovers to become a gnarly force in Central Alberta. Trashed has shared the stage with such punk rock juggernauts as Face To Face, Ten Foot Pole, The Real Mckenzies, SNFU, The Isotopes and Belvedere and it’s fair to say, the future is bright for this gang of miscreants. Keep your ear to the ground as these dudes are trashed and making a scene.


About Charlie Bit My Finger:

Charlie Bit My Finger is a 5-piece pop/punkrock band with lots of melodic riffs, straight-forward drums and clean vocals. They remind you of punkrock from the ’90s. A mix from Millencolin, New Found Glory and Bouncing Souls. Three years ago, they released their second full album and promoted this on their Canadian tour along with some other great shows in Belgium and abroad.

(column) Iron mind with an iron will or how I got off social media!

2021 is coming to an end and I must say that it passed really quick now that I look back. This year has again been void without my favorite festivals due to circumstances known to all. But, I must say that it has been better for me than the last year which was shitty. This one also started like shit, with me being on sick leave from my day job first three months of the year until the middle of April due to serious health issues.

But, that is all behind me. Castle Kraykulla still stands stronger than ever. Its walls have been shaken, hit with force, but they stood the storm and steel is tough to break. Last August marked six years of this webzine and the time has come to make some changes although I am happy to do this.

Kraykulla Webzine and I, sole one man army behind it, Vlad Kraykulla, have always been part of the underground, enjoying to discover new bands, projects, music and zines. Since its unholy inception, this webzine had a Facebook page, which served to connect the readers with the content of the zine. That means, articles, features, columns, gig reports, that is what matters! Webzine matters and I rather would love dedicated few to read this pages, than thousand likes on Fb and nobody opens the feature. Also, social media are not part of the underground scene and philosophy behind it, so I chose to discard it and return this webzine to the underground, real one, where it always belonged. Do not be afraid, webzine continues here with delivering finest of the underground with full force and then some! Only, Kraykulla Webzine is no longer part of Facebook and any social media. I also deleted my personal Facebook profile.

I do not wish someone to know where I am going, what I am doing, what music I listen and thousands of adds, meaningless political debates and idiotism to invade my privacy. In the underground, there is always way to contact via e-mail, even via snail mail is fine by me, although we survived fantastic times back in the day with tape trading days! Idea of Meta, Facebook or you name it, creating some double avatar reality, life within life, illusion of life is frightening and alien and totally monstrous to this old iron heart.

Also, one thing that I must address in this rant is political correctness. Social media is like full of politically correct and righteous assholes who ban you on every irony or joke or if you do not agree with someones ideas of leftism, socialism, anti this anti that…I am sick of that. Metal or punk rock is no longer threat. It is a shopping center doll with eyes and mouth sown shut. That is not the philosophy I want to be a part of. Or my webzine. Fuck that. I hate communists, I hate the idea of everyone getting equal parts of something and not working for it. I hate what leftism has become. Idea of if you are not with us, you are against us. All that keyboard revolutionaries. If something bothered me that much and if I was calling for revolution, I would not write comments on fuckin social media, I would go out, take a rifle and go to guerrilla warfare with like minded individuals by my side.

But, I am not calling for any kind of violence here, nor I am some Breivik type of lunatic that would go out and kill people, dont get me wrong. I think that real revolution must start from yourself, your inner heart and strong individuals are the best thing this life and world can offer. Strong individuals must be the core of the inner revolution.

So, Happy New Year! Thank you for reading this webzine and we continue stronger than ever!

Vlad Kraykulla
