SIAL





















"tari pemusnah kuasa"
Year:  2020
Country:  Singapore
City:  Singapore
Label:  LVEUM
Format:  LP
Tracks:  11
Genre:  rock
Style:        Crust Punk
 
 











four piece hardcore punk band from Singapore, Southeast Asia, started in 2015. Singapore’s SIAL return with another wave of destruction and their 3rd release on LVEUM. They’ve truly found the perfect balance of melody, noise and aggression while still putting great emphasis on the political aspect of hardcore punk that’s always spitting hate towards the power that corrupts. The music and song writing can be somewhat ambiguous to some listeners who have devoted their life to the classic raw hardcore punk format, but this record shouldn’t be left out- it carries the same cathartic punk experience. References point being Extreme Noise Terror, Chaos UK  or Disorder.

SIAL has always been using strong malay metaphors and proverbs in their lyrics, and more in this release to stress how important the Malay language is to them in expressing a structure that is broken in this modern capitalistic world. "tari pemusnah kuasa", which translates to "the revolt dance" or "dance of the power crusher", delivers a sense of mysticism and empowerment. This uncompromising attitude is what we need in these trying times.

The Levellers are a folk punk band formed in Brighton, UK in 1988, consisting of Mark Chadwick (guitar and vocals), Jeremy Cunningham (bass guitar), Charlie Heather (drums), Jon Sevink (violin), Simon Friend (guitar and vocals), and Matt Savage (keyboards). Taking their name from the Levellers political movement, the band released their first EP in 1989 and LP in 1990, with international success following upon signing to China Records and the release of their second album "levelling the land". The band were among the most popular indie bands in UK in the early 90s, and headlined at the Glastonbury Festival in 1994, where they performed on The Pyramid Stage to the festival's record crowd, which numbered 300,000 people. This is a record which stands to this day. Self-described as having "a left wing view of politics", they continue to record and tour.



The "Rolling anarchy" logo, designed by Jeremy Cunningham, is often used by the band. It is composed of three sickles placed so as to form the letter A, recognizable however the logo is rotated. The symbol is often featured on Levellers merchandise and at concerts. It is usually surrounded with the text "Whoever puts their hand upon me to govern me is a usurper, a tyrant, and I declare them my enemy." These words, originally by the French anarchist philosopher Proudhon, had previously been used by the band Zounds who originally released their single "Can't Cheat Karma" featuring this quote on the Crass records label.

the original "The Levellers" were a political movement during the English Civil War (1642–1651) committed to popular sovereignty, extended suffrage, equality before the law and religious tolerance. The hallmark of Leveller thought was its populism, as shown by its emphasis on equal natural rights, and their practice of reaching the public through pamphlets, petitions and vocal appeals to the crowd.

The Levellers came to prominence at the end of the First English Civil War (1642–46) and were most influential before the start of the Second Civil War (1648–49). Leveller views and support were found in the populace of the City of London and in some regiments in the New Model Army. Their ideas were presented in their manifesto "Agreement of the People". In contrast to the Diggers, the Levellers opposed common ownership, except in cases of mutual agreement of the property owners.

The Levellers were not a political party in the modern sense of the term. They were organised at the national level, with offices in a number of London inns and taverns such as The Rosemary Branch in Islington, which got its name from the sprigs of rosemary that Levellers wore in their hats as a sign of identification.

JADED EYES























"call of the void"
Year:  2020
Country:  UK
City:  Leeds
Label:  BossTuneage
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  10
Time:  32 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk        Hardcore












"call of the void" is the long awaited third album by Leeds’ Jaded Eyes, the follow up to 2015’s “The Eternal Sea”. Five years has seen the band come up with yet another carefully collected album, and continues to impress with a style in some ways unique to themselves, mixing a collective love of the "Dischord Records" emo, indie and post-hardcore sounds of: Fugazi and Dag Nasty and mixing them with the home grown UK guitar driven punk rock sounds of the likes of: The Damned, Leatherface and HDQ. With members who have been involved in the UK punk scene for years between bands such as Voorhees, The Horror, John Holmes, Dead Pets, Sex Maniacs, Geoffrey Oi!cott and many many more, "call of the void" is a brilliant, mature exercise in skilled execution, complemented by some stunning artwork from Michel Langevin (from metal bands: Voivod, Tau Cross). You need this. Please note the special mail order only coloured vinyl version, is strictly limited to 150 copies, available on a first come first served basis. Vinyl also contains a CD in plastic wallet of all tracks.

HOMOMILITIA























"idem"
Year:  2020
Country:  Poland
City:  Lodz
Label:  NNNW
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  10
Time:  27 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Crust Punk












Homomilitia is an anarchist crust punk "queercore" band from Lódz, Poland. Their sound could be compareable to Extreme Noise Terror, Nausea or Doom. The band mainly wrote about homosexuality, and some of the members of the band are homosexuals. They disbanded in 2000 and reunited again in 2020. How long have you been waiting for a record to be released? Most probably not as long as 20 years in case of this jewel by Homomilitia. Recorded 20 years ago it never made it to mastering stage and was left in a cardboard box at the guitarist’s basement, waiting for its day. Numerous attempts at releasing it had been made, all failed. Until now. We joined forces, took things seriously this time, and went in search of the cardboard box. DAT tape was found and travelled to Dobra 12 Studio in Bialystok for a mastering stage it so much deserved. The result is the second full-length LP by Poland’s most influential DIY punk bands - Homomilitia. Active in the 90’s, touring Europe extensively they uniquely blended metal guitars, distortioned bass with double kick drums, spirit and anger. This LP finds the band at the pinnacle of their musical achievements. The sound they managed to produce on this recording 20 years ago still puts to shame many contemporary hardcore and punk studio productions. Expect 10-song d-beat mayhem spiced up with a heavy bolt thrower-sh guitar and pissed-off lyrics on state oppression and hopelessness of everyday life. Your 20-year wait is now over. This masterpiece is available on 140 gram black vinyl, limited edition orange-on-black 140 gram vinyl, CD and cassette tape. Brilliant

Red London is a rock band formed in Sunderland in December 1981, influenced by The Clash, Chelsea, Stiff Little Fingers, The Ruts and The Jam. The band named themselves after a Sham 69 song. The band was formed by guitarist Kid Stoker, soon joined by brother Gaz Stoker on bass (from fellow bands as Angelic Upstarts and Red Alert), as well as vocalist Patty Smith and drummer Raish Carter. In 1982 they signed to Razor Records, and their first release was 1983's Sten Guns in Sunderland EP, followed by the This is England LP in 1984, which received a 5/5 review in Sounds. The band began touring Europe from 1985. Having been replaced on drums for the band's debut album, Raish Carter returned on vocals replacing Patty Smith for third release, 1986 EP Pride and Passion, on French label Gougnaf Mouvement. Another French label, Negative, released second album Outlaws in 1988, by which time Marty Clark had taken over vocals. A series of releases followed in the 1990s for various labels both in the UK and abroad. They disbanded in 2002 until 2018 when Red London reunited and played their first gig at the Museum Vaults in Sunderland, followed by other live performances in UK and Europe.

FAKE NAMES

Year:  2020
Country:  US
City:  Los Angeles
Label:  Epitaph
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  10
Time:  25 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk Rock












This is the debut and only one Fake Names album. 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).
