the Guttersnipes - The Poor Dress Up

In 1987 The Guttersnipes were formed in London by Shug O'Neill and Andy Kline.. Early gigs in London quickly gain the band a reputation as an exciting live act, supporting the likes of Splodgenessabounds, Mega City Four and The Senseless Things. During Mid 1989 their debut album "The Poor Dress Up" is released by the independent label Razor Records. This album went on to sell 1500 copies despite complete lack of promotion or advertising by Razor. The album sells only because of Andy and Shug's work in promoting the band through the fanzine network in Europe.>>> more

Lemonheads - Lick (.FLAC)

The Lemonheads' evolution from post-Hüsker Dü hardcore punk rockers to teenage heartthrobs is one of the strangest sagas in alternative music. Initially, the group was a punk-pop trio formed by three teenage Boston suburbanites, but over the years, the band became a vehicle for Evan Dando. Blessed with good looks and a warm, sweet voice, Dando became a teen idol in the early '90s, when Nirvana's success made alternative bands commercially viable. While his simple, catchy songs were instantly accessible, they tended to hide the more subversive nature of his lyrics, as well as his gift for offbeat covers and his devotion to country-rock father Gram Parsons. After developing his signature blend of pop, punk, and country-rock on several independent records in the late '80s, Dando moved the Lemonheads to Atlantic Records in 1990. Two years later, It's a Shame About Ray made the group into media sensations, as Dando's face appeared on music and teen magazines across America and Britain.

Infa-Riot - Still Out Of Order (.FLAC)

Infa Riot were originally formed in late 1979 by vocalist Lee Wilson and his bass playing brother Floyd together with guitarist Barry Damery and drummer Mark Reynolds. The name Infa Riot is an abbreviation for "In For A Riot." Infa-Riot's first gig was supporting The Angelic Upstarts in a North London pub, Mensi was a huge fan. Heavily influenced by The Angelic Upstarts, Infa Riot, within a year of forming, found themselves in "Sounds" newspaper courtesy of a live review by none other than the Upstarts vocalist Mensi who was impressed by the bands performance at Hornsey Community Centre, only their fourth every gig! By November of 1980 they'd completely blown off the Lyceum stage both Chelsea and The Dark and earnt themselves the tag 'the new boot boys sensations' in the countless fanzines they managed to appear in. It though seemed that Infa-Riot never really had a steady drummer, it seemed to changed monthly. Their first issued recordings were 2 tracks on the "Strength Through Oi!" compilationin May 1981. These 2 songs were "Riot Riot" and "We Outnumber You." Infa-Riot's first single was released in September 1981 on Secret records. This was the double "a" side "Kids Of The '80's"/ "Still Out Of Order." This single entered the U.K. Indie Charts at ..9 position & reached ..2. In February of '82, they played at the "Gathering Of The Clans" Festival in Scotland. At this festival they played with The Exploited, Vice Squad & Anti-Nowhere League + many other great legendary bands.

''We never really thought about it; we just got up and did it,''. KIM MCAULIFFE of Girlschool says when she's asked to reflect on her band's impact on rock 'n' roll -- and particularly the hard rock and heavy metal scenes.
''Everybody used to tell us we were groundbreaking, because we were all girls playing this sort of music. We didn't think about it. We always said ''Why are people making all this fuss?'' The reason we were all girls was we couldn't find any blokes who wanted to play with us! This was just the natural thing to do.'' MCAULIFFE is being modest, of course.
The British group is one of those bands whose legacy is far richer than it's commercial accomplishments -- a shame, since its catalog of albums contains any number of tightly written melodies that are played with plenty of guitar crunch and enough swaggering attitude to let 'em walk with the boys...

Where Superchunk's self-titled debut otherwise failed to live up to the brilliance of its anti-anthem centerpiece "Slack Motherfucker," the follow-up No Pocky for Kitty is a complete and fully realized statement of purpose -- opening with the dizzying "Skip Steps 1 & 3," the disc never lets up for a second, crackling with an energy and breathless abandon that underlines the sheer exuberance at the heart of even Mac McCaughan's most superficially bitter songs. Although No Pocky for Kitty successfully channels the sound and spirit of punk's heyday, for all their whiplash guitars and spitfire rhythms Superchunk's songs derive their power not from nihilism and ennui but from optimism and passion -- implicit in McCaughan's lyrics is a belief in creation over destruction, hope over cynicism, and love over hate. Credit too Steve Albini's no-frills recording for the live-wire snap and crackle of standouts like "Seed Toss," "Punch Me Harder," and "Throwing Things" -- for all its earthy simplicity and everyman conviction, No Pocky for Kitty positively soars. -- by Jason Ankeny

The Stranglers formed as the Guildford Stranglers in the southern England village of Chiddington (near Guildford) in 1974, plowing a heavily Doors-influenced furrow through the local pub rock scene -- such as it was. Of the four founding members, only Hugh Cornwell had any kind of recognizable historical pedigree, having played alongside Richard Thompson in the schoolboy band Emil & the Detectives. According to Thompson, their repertoire stretched from "Smokestack Lightning" and the blues, through to "old Kiki Dee B-sides," while their gigging was largely confined to the Hornsey School of Art, where Thompson's sister was Social Secretary. -- by Dave Thompson

Vocalist Beki Bondage was a British punker's Marilyn Monroe dressed in leather. Unlike Monroe, Bondage presented herself as an intelligent woman who could kick butt when she wanted to. Throughout most of this CD, Bondage struts her stuff, taunting the listener to stop looking at the cover photos and actually listen to what she has to say. Imagine a clear-headed Siouxsie Sioux backed by a straightforward tight punk band. Though Vice Squad doesn't offer much more than your average early-'80s British punk band, the group certainly did possess a spiked charm and a knack for writing pure anthemic punk rock. Vice Squad's debut single, "Last Rockers," was a fabulous call to arms, instantly showcasing what this band was all about. "Stand Strong Stand Proud" toughens up the attack with beefier production and more confident musicianship. "Rock & Roll Massacre" is an instant singalong, although it's lyrics are a bit trite and silly. Bondage continues to raise the stakes on the first 16 tracks, leaving the last eight tracks here sung by her replacement, Lia, who is not as distinct as Bondage, but certainly doesn't embarrass herself in the slightest (just listen to "What's Going On?," "High Spirits," and "The Pledge" for proof of that). Though the casual listener may think it all sounds the same, fans of good ol' punk rock will be happy with this "vice." -- by Steve "Spaz" Schnee

The breakout success of "Save Yourself" in 2002 was due neither to fluke nor bandwagoneering. Even as far back as 1994's Killed for Less, Sense Field showed the ability to sprinkle its punk and hardcore influences with crocodile tears, so the issuing of a three-minute soundtrack to an emo kid make-out party wasn't very far-fetched. Living Outside is as conscious a follow-up record as there can be, but it's likely also the record Sense Field would've made anyway, even without the band's mainstream ascendancy. Outside was written principally by guitarist Chris Evenson and vocalist Jon Bunch, and they've looked to new wave and 1980s guitar pop to define the album's sound. Synths and processed loops turn up throughout, in part replacing the contributions of guitarist Rodney Sellars, who opted out of Sense Field to focus on family issues. The whirring, fuzzy electronics plop "No Medicine," "Take What You Want," and "Haunted" somewhere between Depeche Mode and Garbage. But a completely unpretentious Cure cover is a winking reminder that the guys in Sense Field are old enough to draw their '80s influences from their high-school music collections, instead of a bag of studio tricks. Meanwhile, the broad melodies and fervent vocals (from the always reliably ardent Bunch) of "On Your Own" and "Feel What You Feel" approach the grandeur of the band's breakthrough ballad without brazenly rewriting it. The production presence of Brad Wood on four of Outside's tracks refines the sound a bit too much, occasionally suggesting the populist supermarket alt.rock of Collective Soul. But though it's been sanded smooth over the years, Sense Field can still stump from the punk rock platform, as "Running Behind" and "Burn" attest. For the latter, Wood layered strings into the mix, and tries to rely on the space created from a skittering piano break to build tension. But it's in one-on-one lines like "No I don't want to meet you to talk/So stop coming by my work" where "Burn"'s urgency actually lies. Moments like this leave Living Outside's surface a bit rough, and help it exist as the next Sense Field album, and not simply the next Sense Field album since "Save Yourself."-- by Johnny Loftus
