goldenboy are in no way strangers to the pages of this zine. This band comes from Bergen, Norway, and are playing melodic pop punk and deliver nice anthemic choruses, beautiful melodic verses, nice heartfelt lyrics and the most important of all, make your day way better and nicer when listening to their music.

They released new acoustic e.p. when they were quarantined by the covid shitty epidemic that had so much impact on our scene, banning gigs and festivals, making us hold the scene as much as we can with the music, reviews, support and friendship. These three songs are new versions of already released tunes, but what an e.p. this is. You can feel the energy through melody no matter that it is acoustic. My favorite is Old and boring, but all three songs are epic.

(review) Scott Sellers-Influence

cover

Scott Sellers just keeps delivering and delivering, bombing us away and melting our faces off with his awesome new albums full of melodic punk and fast skatepunk anthems.

This time, he releases the memory box of his influences, like the title of the albums says. This album takes me to my youth, delivering bombs of songs, with so many great covers on this album. There are 10 songs of the bands that influenced Scott in his relentless work discipline in creating great music, namely Strung Out, Face To Face, Slick Shoes, Lagwagon, MxPx, Nofx, Blink 182, Millencolin, No Use For A Name and BIGWIG. Like any other covers album, there are some songs you like more, some you like less, but this one is full of fantastic songs, so thumbs up for all of the songs on it.

8,5/10
