EP REVIEW: Kishi – Khaos – Mongrel Records


Be honest. If you were one question away from winning the jackpot on a TV quiz show and the smug, over-smiley host asked you, “what is the capital of Angola?”, would you really be going home with a massive cheque or just left stood there sullen and regretful, wishing you’d paid more attention in Geography class?

CONCERT REVIEW: The Soap Girls – Felicia – Live at The Den, Harrogate


Walking into The Den in Harrogate I was initially convinced I’d gone to the wrong place. This was a sports bar; the football was on. Double check, no this is the right place. Spotting a few of the bands by a stage in between pool tables, I must be in the same place.

Suicidal Tendencies Releases Video For “All Kinda Crazy”

As promised, Suicidal Tendencies rang in 2019 with a brand new video for their song ‘All Kind Crazy’. The track comes from their 2018 album STill Cyco Punk After All These Years (Suicidal Records). The live performance clip was shot on tour last fall and features the punk rock, pulse-pounding feeling of what it’s like to throw down at an ST show. The video was recorded while on tour last fall, which included special performances of their self-titled debut album which turned 35 in 2018. In addition to leader/frontman Mike Muir, Suicidal Tendencies current lineup features guitarist Dean Pleasants, bassist Ra Diaz, drummer Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer, Dead Cross) and included special guest live guitarist Ben Weinman (ex Dillinger Escape Plan).

Suicidal Tendencies – STill Cyco Punk After All These Years

There are no rules in punk rock. Suicidal Tendencies helped espouse that philosophy as much as any band ever. So really at this stage of the game, touring the world, playing anniversary shows celebrating their legendary self-titled debut, and having a lineup that is straight fire, they can do whatever they want to. However frontman Mike Muir didn’t always think this was the case. During the mid 90s hiatus of ST, Muir released the solo album Lost My Brain…Once Again (Epic), which sounded quite familiar. That album featured Steve Jones of Sex Pistols, Adam Siegel of Excel, and even Dave Kushner who went on to Velvet Revolver. A punked up throwback to the early – non-crossover thrash sound of the band, but the same brilliance from Muir lyrically and even some more of the fun of ST sideband, Infectious Grooves. Muir had wanted to redo this album for years but finally settled on having the latest incarnation the bands re-record it under the name STill Cyco Punk After All These Years (Suicidal Records).Continue reading
