FAKE NAMES























https://ia801506.us.archive.org/34/items/FN-20/f.jpg"idem"
Year:  2020
Country:  US
City:  Los Angeles
Label:  Epitaph
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  10
Time:  25 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk Rock












 Comprising of members from various old school punk bands, including Bad Religion and Refused, Fake Names are the latest supergroup that will spark the interest of fans of the original bands, and maybe even pick up a few new fans along the way, but might struggle to find an audience outside of those circles. Their debut self-titled album clocks in at just under half an hour, but delivers 10 tracks that combine old school punk along with some catchy pop choruses, resulting in a sound that’s more reminiscent of a garage indie band you’d hear at your local corner pub. Punk band featuring guitarists Brian Baker (Bad Religion, Dag Nasty, Minor Threat) and Michael Hampton (S.O.A., Embrace, One Last Wish), vocalist Dennis Lyxzén (Refused, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, INVSN) and bassist Johnny Temple (Girls Against Boys, Soulside).

DRUG CHURCH























"cheer"
Year:  2019
Country:  US
City:  New York
Label:  Pure Noise
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  10
Time:  30 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Post Hardcore












Drug Church did not start as a side project for singer Patrick Kindlon of Self Defense Family as most people have come to believe. After having released a 3-song demo online in 2011, the band got signed by No Sleep Records by the beginning of 2012. Musically the band mixes hardcore, punk and emo in the style of bands like: Fugazi, Hüsker Dü or Black Flag, with alternative rock elements to create their personal post-hardcore sound. The lyrics to their songs focus mostly on social matters and tend to be dark or satirical. In a Q&A Session on the website of his other project Self Defense Family, Kindlon has stated that he has no pre-written lyrics for his bands and rather writes the songs' lyrics while in the studio: Completely different people write the instrument portion of the music. Leads to a very different feel, so, very different lyrics. Also, I write everything in the studio. So, there’s no bank of lyrics I pull from. This is made to order, not buffet.

THE WEDDING PRESENT























"Tommy"
Year:  2019
Cuntry:  UK
City:  Leeds
Label:  HHBTM
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  12
Time:  35 min.
Genre:  rock
Syle:        Indie Punk













The Wedding Present are an rock group formed in Leeds, England in 1984. They evolved from the ashes of The Lost Pandas. Their music has evolved from fast-paced indie rock and post-punk in the vein of their most obvious influences The Cure, The Damned, Wire or Gang Of Four to more varied forms. Throughout their career, they have been led by vocalist and guitarist David Gedge, the band's only constant member.

 The Lost Pandas fell apart in 1984 when guitarist Michael Duane (later of dustDevils) was sacked, and Panda's drummer Jaz Rigby followed in protest. Gedge and the Pandas' bass player, Keith Gregory, decided to continue the band, renaming it The Wedding Present. Gedge wanted to use the name "The Wedding Present" in honour of one of his favourite bands,The Birthday Party.

JUST WÄR






















"situation normal still fucked up"
Year:  2019
Country:  Czech Republic
City:  Prague
Label:  Emergency
Format:  LP
Tracks:  10
Time:  32 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk        D-Beat













well finally! With situation Normal Still Fucked Up, the Prague-charged Punx Just would shoot their long-awaited debut album. There are ten merciless metal punk songs, technically demanding and with a lot of steam under the cauldron. Just War was founded in 2014, since then released a single The Last Goodbye and played several concerts across the continent. After a few line-up changes and even a temporary breakup, the band's first long player now appears. The disc was recorded in Prague in the Stereo Mystereo Studio at the end of 2018. With two songs they got vocal reinforcement from front man Bilos of the Czech metal band Malignant Tumor.

 As I said before, Just Wär play metal-heavy hardcore punk somewhere between UK82 punk, Motörhead and classic heavy metal. The songs on the album are musically sophisticated and guitarist Traktor shows what he can do! In fact, he plays without a pick. When I asked him why he was playing without a pick after a concert, he said that he simply didn't have one when he started playing the guitar. It was just like that and now he doesn't need it anymore - a master of plucking and a master of overtones, not bad.

 In terms of sound, the metal edge cannot be missed. The songs press and are tightly recorded. The distorted bass roars, the drums press and the guitar shreds like a chainsaw and is still in the foreground with its varied gadgets. You can argue about the lyrics, I find them temporarily flat and simple. That is certainly a matter of taste, but compared to the instrumental claim, the vocals lag behind textually and purely vocally. Because, for me at least, not much gets stuck in the ear. The catchy tune is missing.

All in all, I would call the album a success, despite the cut in vocals. So if you like metal punk and want to blow your ear canals again, this is the place for you (*Review by Von Felix ).

DAYS N DAZE























"show me the blueprints"
Year:  2020
Country:  US
City:  Houston, TX
Label:  Fat Wreck Chords
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  11
Time:  30 min.
Genre:  acoustic
Style:        Folk        Punk













Veteran “thrashgrass” band Days N Daze has spent more than a decade doing it themselves in a way few can match. From the beginning, Whitney Flynn (vocals/trumpet) and Jesse Sendejas (vocals/guitar) have forged their own path—playing acoustically so they’d have less gear and could perform anywhere, booking and promoting themselves, and self-recording and self-releasing their albums. Days N Daze—rounded out by Meagan Melancon on washboard and Geoff Bell on gutbucket—have done it all on their own, thank you. In the rare instances when they work with outsiders, they stick with people they know. Which is why, after a dozen hardscrabble years, they’ve joined Fat Wreck Chords for their eighth full-length, Show Me the Blueprints., out 5/1/20. Sendejas calls the decision “terrifying.” Flynn describes it as “massively intimidating.” And they couldn’t be happier. “It’s been pretty awesome—just the positive reinforcement and the drive,” Flynn says. “They've really pushed us to go that extra mile, to get that confidence in ourselves, to keep going, keep making music".

PESTPOCKEN






















"another world is possible"
Year:  2020
Country:  Germany
City:  Giessen
Label:  Maniac Attack
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  13
Time:  32 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk












Eight years after "no love for a nation" the german spearhead of protest-punk is back with its third full-length album. Angry and aggressive as usual Pestpocken blast 13 new, politically unambiguous songs into this sick world. And these are real ripsnorters: Sometimes brute, sometimes anthemic, technical versed and well produced, the lyrics in german and english language reflect the band’s history, are dedicated to the historical (Battle Of Cable Street) as well as the contemporary (Rojava Revolution) resistance, talk about the racism against refugees, approach the neo-conservatism alienated individual or clearify the relationship to state and police. The message couldn’t be more accurate in times of escalating global crises ot the capitalist system: Another world is not only necessary but also possible. Also after more than 20 years these five Punx from Gießen know how to communicate it convincing like an unerring fisticuff. The LP comes in two different variations: As limited Picture LP or on red splattered vinyl.

Country:  US
City: Los Angeles, CA
Label:  Cleopatra
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  10
Time:  30 min.

Formed in spring 2010, The Brutalists are a three-piece garage punk band from south California. They take inspiration from many bands particularly, Kings Of Leon, The White Stripes, The Stooges and The Beatles and their music mixes mundane lyrics and punchy riffs to create a sound comparable to the old garage rock bands of the 60s but with a fresh approach. One online music reviewer affectionately described them as being "rough as arseholes", comparing them to such classic punk rock bands as MC5 and The Clash, "Artists with somthing to say". The name of the band make reffrenece to brutalist architecture typical from East Bloc and also some buildings in London and Paris.
