THE WEEKLY SNATCH 5
So here's a quick snapshot of my weekly highlights up until 1st July - ish.
It's all about my Facebook being hacked and effectively sending me into a spiral, so catch up time....
The lead singer of Delinquents is a great friend to have, albeit remotely through distance and lockdown he is someone who checks in regularly and genuinely cares. I know that he is nervous about this new track, a solo acoustic and covering a highly charged and current topic.
"You say you can’t be racist because you have black friends?
It's like me saying I can’t be sexist because I am my mother's son
Sounds crazy, really?
This is the world we're living in "
I am not best placed to make an insightful comment, just to say that I understand the message and hopefully it will help in some way.
You can pay as much as you want to download this track HERE
Whilst lockdown has been ongoing I've found myself struggling for a routine, but I generally try to set 11am aside to watch the excellent live broadcast from Galina Rin. The music is often accompanied by animation and musical commentary. Like science fiction? Like anime? Like Rock Music? or new music in general, then go check them out. I was blown away by the live show, hope it happens again soon.
THE MUFFIN HEADS
The Muffin Heads have four new tracks to download. And, just like this incredibly under rated trio, that opening line is the understatement of the year!
Each track is an incendiary, snarling, growling, grungey delight. The lyrics aim a sharply pointed finger at a failing consumerist society but these will probably be overlooked by those busily stomping in the pit of mosh or wildly whiplashing those around them with their post lockdown unfettered locks.
There’s very little (nothing) that this band have put out that hasn’t been a massive hit with me, Bang Says The Gun and Queen Bitch are still getting some heavy car rotation in the 4WD milk float, (when I’m allowed out), these 4 tracks will be joining them soon, when I have a physical copy!!
Keep it going guys, this EP is a marvelous fantastic four, with Cheap Meat just edging it for me.
PLEASE DONATE - EVEN IF YOU CAN'T GET TO THE FESTIVAL - IT WON'T HAPPEN UNLESS THE TARGET IS MET. THE ONGOING CROWDFUNDER HAS A MONTH TO RUN, IT'S NOT CLOSE TO THE TARGET. I REPEAT, IF THE TARGET IS NOT MET THEN THE FESTIVAL WILL NOT GO AHEAD, THERE'S NEW INFORMATION ABOUT THE VENUE AND THE REWARDS FOR PLEDGERS ON THE CROWDFUNDING PAGE.
Here's the link.
Hope that you enjoyed this quick snatch. Keep 'em peeled!
