The Dick Dastardly´s are punk n roll band from Italy, recently released their new record with Slack Records and I listened and reviewed their record for our zine.
I am usually not to keen when hearing and listening punk n roll bands, or garage punk bands, because most of them are too boring rock n roll and too few punk in their music to keep me interested, but there are exceptions from that rule, like this band. This album features 10 songs of awesome high energy, octane fueled pumped dirty punkrock with speed, ferocity and arrogance. I love it! This songs make you wanna go out and drink till you drop, then drink some more and listen to great punk. The songs Hard Drugs, Fucked Up Ronnie and Nuclear Korean Girl are for sure my highlights from this record. If I must compare this band to some other, it would be Dwarves but these guys are a bit less melodic than the current Dwarves. So, if you are a fan of fast paced, raw but energetic and melodic punk, check these guys out! Good one!
Wow! That is only thing I can say after listening to the new Fat Bastard record! Read the review in our zine!
Hailing from Belgium, Antwerp area these guys have been in the scene for a while and this is their new e.p. The music of Fat Bastard is not rocket science, it is nothing new, but they do it with style and passion that makes your heart dance in the chest. The energy this band provides on this record is incredible. Fat Bastard play Motorhead like punk n roll with dirty, but still melodic greasy riffs, guitar hooks, great vocals and awesome song structures. Yet, the guys managed to retain that original, primal rock lust for life and energy that makes this record so good. The record contains 7 songs and in my opinion, for me the best on this record are Dead Man Charlene, Blood Sweat and Beer and Dead Man Walking. Check this one out, you won´t regret it!
It took a couple of years but here is the new, third release by Kurve. I listened to the record and reviewed it for this webzine.
Kurve are hailing from Zagreb, the capitol of Croatia, and they have a somewhat unique musical expression compared to the other bands from the Croatian punk hardcore scene. By combining hardcore, fast rocknroll and punkrock with poetic lyrics, they manage to achieve an intensive musical experience. Not to mention their highly energetic live shows which I recommend for you to check out. This record contains 5 songs, all of them having lyrics in Croatian language. As I said before, the lyrics are personal and at the same time they possess some gorgeous, drunk and obnoxious charm. The title song is an anthemic fast paced punk n roll anthem with raw riffs but charming subtle melodies underneath it all and this one, along with Ispovijed is my favorite song on this record. This is a very strong record for all of you who love to try something a bit different. Check it out!
