Round Eye, the experimental freak punk outfit have accrued quite a loud and controversial name for themselves since forming in 2012. The UK based group have shown no mercy nor fatigue in sound development or work ethic and have as of late been a crucial force in bridging a wide gap between the eastern and western hemispheres of punk rock. Along with blazing a gnarly trail all over the globe (USA, Mexico, Europe, Korea, Japan).


They’ve shared stages with groups such as: Dead Kennedys, D.O.A., The FUs, Paul Collins Beat, M.O.T.O., Ceremony and Iceage, and Misandao, China, and have been banned from performing on the mainland by the Ministry of Culture during a tour with UK punk legends The Boys (as a result the tour was forced to literally go underground where they held the secret gigs in bomb shelters around the country). The ban lasted only the duration of the tour and was assigned due to “crowd control issues” following the tragic Shanghai band stampede, a controversial tour poster, and reports of Round Eye’s lewd stage antics.


They’ve won the “Best Local Band” title from Shanghai’s City Weekend magazine two years in a row. They’ve released two music videos (one starring famed Chinese actress Wang Lin) and honed their unconventional blend of 50s R&B and Punk with a critically acclaimed EP “Full Circle” on Ripping/Genjing Records which featured Greg Ginn (Black Flag) and have drawn comparisons to the Stooges, Dr. Feelgood and The Fall. Currently, they are set to drop their eponymous LP Round Eye which features saxophonist Steve Mackay (Stooges/Violent Femmes) andR. Stevie Moore in June with a tour of the US with Mr. Clit and the Pink Cigarettes set to begin in July to promote it.

SINKOPE


 











"por pensar le dió al hombre"
Year:  2020
Country:  Spain
City:  Extremadura
Label:  Maldito
Format:  CD
Tracks:  12
Time:  60 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Hard Rock




Pollution, plundering of resources, exploitation of animals, social issues, politics... we are loading the planet little by little, but what if we were to think? If everything we have destroyed we invest in building? From this idea was born the title of "Por Pensar gave al Hombre", the fourteenth album by Sinkope. 10 songs worked to the maximum + 2 bonus tracks, which show that this band never stops surpassing itself.

Because it is not easy to stay 30 years on stage. Even less to publish five albums in five years -'Museo de Rejas Limadas (2015), '¡¡Gracias !!!' (2016), 'El Parque de los Poetas (2017),' adicción Limitada '(2019) and now this 'For Thinking he gave to Man'); But the hardest thing of all is to keep doing it just as well, and even better. And this is where this mythical rock band from Extremadura does it again.

On their fourteenth album, Sinkope shows all their faces; the visceral, the intimate, the vindictive, the one that distributes love… all of them marked by the poetry of Vito's lyrics, by those unmistakable guitars, by the usual Sinkope and also by those who innovate and give a twist to their sound to offer something new that surprises the faithful and others. In addition to the songs, this is seen the first time with the design and format of the album, which follows a groundbreaking aesthetic line, attractive and full of details, the work of the artist from her land Rosaura Rombo.

30 years, 14 albums, thousands of miles of road and fans who feel this band from the depths: the same place from where they create their songs. ‘For Thinking he gave to Man’ is the reflection of the best Synkope and the demonstration of everything that still lies ahead.

THE REAL McKENZIES





















"beer and loathing"
Year:  2020
Country:  Canada
City:  Vancouver
Label:  Fat Wreck Chords
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  12
Time:  35 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Folk Punk












The Real McKenzies need little introduction having founded in 1992 in Vancouver, Canada. They have established themselves as one of the most formidable the Celtic Punk bagpipe bands on the scene. Hard to believe they have been around for almost 30 years. Although they have gone through many line-up changes, Paul McKenzie remains at the helm leading the crew into another decade of Scottish influenced celtic punk and mayhem. The Real McKenzies have kicked off 2020 with the release of their new album Beer and Loathing. Now its fair to say 2020 hasn’t been the best year so far but its not all doom and gloom. Beer and Loathing is guaranteed to take your mind off small matters such the worldwide pandemic, the potential for WW3 etc etc. It’s a crackin album and I must say one of my favourite from the Real McKenzies. The new album has been released on Fat Wreck Records and contains 12 rockin’ tunes. It opens with a bagpipe lead instrumental The Widow’s Watch but quickly ramps up though the gear to a faster tempo with notable song such as Nary Do Gooder, Death of the Winnepeg Scene and The Cremation of Sam Mcgee. The Real McKenzies stick with the Scottish flavour with Cock up Your Beaver. It’s a slower song which is a version of a Robert Burns poem. Probably not what you were thinking when you read the title first (tut, tut)!!! All in this is a great album and good to have the Real McKenzies back three years after the last release. It’s a reminder why the band have lasted almost 30 years on the scene where others have fallen by the wayside. So grab yourself a wee dram, stick on Beer and Loathing and crank it up to 10. It’s time like this we need music like this to get us through all the other crap in the world (*Review by Ann ).

optimistic punk in Basque Country. After ten years playing in hardcore, metal or alternative rock bands, five musicians decided to found  a classic band in 1999, making fast punk which remind early 80s british bands, but with different attitude, closer to optimistic and positive point of view in the vein of californinan bands. Txapelpunk started as a punk band like GBH, but with some kind of optimistic attitude. Singer (Iñigo) use to write jokes or parodies to tell us stories about: unemployment, police brutality, love, saturday night, parties, work, etc.  Firstly, even its music had a little clean and melodic touches, to become finally almost a melodic hardcore band in its newest albums. Vocalist sing in both, basque and spanish language.
