Self Titled Cover

Red City Radio’s self-titled record is one of niceness.
As in; “…my Mum is in the car, I should put on something that I can enjoy and she can at least tolerate”, my particular mother being a 4 foot conservative Filipino woman whom I only coerced into sheepishly uttering the word “shit” in the last couple of years and defiantly disproves of the majority of my musical tastes and endeavors. Despite a closet pride in the fact that I’m not down on Swanston Street begging for change… Yet.

Perths The Decline announce New Album & National Tour

The Declines national tour poster.

The start of 2015 was a busy time for West Australian punkers The Decline, with band members leaving and band members arriving festival announcements and further to all that the guys have announced album number three as well as a national Australian tour. Lucky the change over of band members didn't slow the guys down as they went straight into record Resister at Electric City Studios with Adam Round and Sam Allen, then sent it over to a punk rock go to guy known by the name Jason Livermore at The Blasting Room.  

English punkers Templeton Pek, have launched pre-orders for their up coming album 'New Horizons' which is out July 24th via Hardline Entertainment. The Birmingham trio recorded their album at The Porch in Hermosa Beach with Ken Seaton and got it mixed by Cameron Webb (Motorhead, Pennywise, Sum 41, Lit) at Maple Studios.

Under The Influence (Narrated by Tim Armstrong) - 2 Tone Ska

Episode two of Noiseys Under The Influence series has been released, this time they look at 2 Tone Ska, and yes Tim Armstrong of Rancid is back narrating. You can see episode 1 Here if you missed it.

My first experience with this band and furthermore this record was by having the disc thrown at myself and my punk rock radio cohorts from a car driving past us whilst smoking out the front of the Tote after the band had supported Iron Ragan, for which I wasn’t actually present as I was playing another show upstairs.
The resulting mixture of thrash dudes and hip punks in the front bar was both interesting and hilarious.
The circumstances under which I acquired this 21 minute blast of semi-guided mayhem was very much appropriate for what the record had in store for me as I slotted the disc into the car stereo for the first time.

Gold Coast folk punker Laura Mardon played a song with Joey Cape (Lagwagon, Bad Astronaut, Scorpios, MFATGG, Solo Artist) and Brian Wahlstrom (Solo Artist, Scorpios) back in 2013, Joey and Brian enjoyed her music and ended up giving her the oppurtunity to travel to Joeys house and record in his basement.
