ALBUM REVIEW: KMFDM – Let Go


KMFDM is celebrating forty years of conceptual continuity with the release of their  twenty-third album Let Go (Metropolis Records). Let’s give that one some thought. Forty years holding to a musical concept throughout 23 albums is an achievement not many bands of their ilk can boast, as how many of their peers are this prolific? The sticking point on Let Go might be how continuous that concept is, and at what point are we weighing it against? Continue reading

The Rezillos Releasing ‘Zero’


the rezillos

First wave UK punk stalwarts The Rezillos have re-emerged with a brand new album Zero, coming out March 10, 2015 via Metropolis Records. This is their first full length release since their one and only studio album, the 1978 release Can’t Stand the Rezillos.

Formed in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1976, The Rezillos rose out of the punk/new wave scene at the advent of the whole movement. Although emerging at the same time as other bands in that realm, the Rezillos did not share the nihilism of social commentary of some of their contemporaries, but took a more left-field approach to their songs, preferring to describe themselves at the time as “a New Wave beat group” more in line with B-52s and The Cramps then their more political peers.

They will be touring with The Stranglers in the UK in March and dates in the US in May.
The Rezillos is Fay Fife (vocals, theremin), Eugene Reynolds (vocals), Angel Paterson (drums), Jim Brady (guitar, backing vocals), and Chris Agnew (partial guitar). Zero was produced by Eugene Reynolds, Fay Fife and Jim Brady.
