Millencolin SOS

Millencolin’s new album dropped last week. Another solid release from these skate punk veterans. Not as heavy on social commentary as True Brew. It’s more the feel of classic Millencolin though these guys have never put out a bad album. This is still on their home label of Epitaph Records. The title track would be at home on any Punk O Rama comp. So pick this one up or stream it at your skate sessions. More proof that punk is becoming great again. -C Fish Continue reading Millencolin SOS

The Exquisites, HOME Album Review, 2016

REVIEW: The Exquisites latest release, “Home” The Exquisites latest release, Home, finds them continuing down the same road they began on their debut; featuring rough around the edges punk that also knows how to slow things down and the hoarse but soulful vocals of Jason Clackley. This album finds the band a bit more comfortable with its sound than before, and Clackley opening up a bit more about his past than on the previous release.

Lyrics like this, for me personally, is the … Continue reading The Exquisites, HOME Album Review, 2016

Maty’s Corner #27 Duane Peters and the Great Unwashed

Maty’s Corner #27 Duane Peters and the Great Unwashed Review   Coming out in 2012 was Duane Peters and The Great Unwashed. A bit of a one off side project from the master of disaster. While short lived, they did release on great album titled Beautiful Tragedy. It’s out and out punk blues with a lot of great piano and even a bit of harmonica, a definite departure from other music that Duane has put out. Most of lyrics sound like lost writings from Charles Bukowski’s urban genius. The two big stand outs for me are Coffee In The Kitchen … Continue reading Maty’s Corner #27 Duane Peters and the Great Unwashed
