Mudhoney - Touch Me I'm Sick

"Touch Me I'm Sick" is a song by the American alternative rock band Mudhoney. It was recorded in March 1988 at Seattle's Reciprocal Recording studio with producer Jack Endino. "Touch Me I'm Sick" was released as Mudhoney's debut single by independent record label Sub Pop on August 1, 1988. The song's lyrics, which feature dark humor, are a sarcastic take on issues such as disease and violent sex. When it was first released, "Touch Me I'm Sick" was a hit on the indie circuit; it remains the band's most recognizable song. The heavily distorted and fuzzy guitars, snarling vocals, blunt bass line and energetic drumming contributed to a dirty sound that influenced many local musicians, and helped develop the nascent Seattle grunge scene. According to Allmusic, "the song's raw, primal energy made it an instant anthem which still stands as one of [grunge's] all-time classics".

slow - Badman

Slow's brand of rock n roll and punk rock has not aged one bit: Anselmi's voice is monstrous, the guitars seriously rock n roll, and the drummer is all energy and destruction. Against the Glass is the kind of album that could only be delivered by a veteran act of 20 years---or a bunch of genius teenagers with not much better to do.

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard veer into metal with their thundering, surreal new song “Planet B.” “Open your eyes and shoot the dingo/All this shit goes out the window,” the Australian psych-rockers bellow over fuzz-bass and harmonized hammer-on guitar leads. “Multi-flashing, rusting tractors/Dying heroes … There is no Planet B/Open your eyes and see.” The band paired the single with a jarringly violent video. At various points in the clip, the seven members — all decked out in matching orange attire — bark like dogs, smile demonically and run around an empty highway before a disturbing finale in which a stranger shoots them all and lights their bodies on fire.

Blitz - Voice of a Generation

This album is head and shoulders above any other "Oi" music. Probably because the band was a true combo of skins and old-school punks who actually decried the violence of the streets even as they painted a pretty brutal picture of it. Musically and lyrically, Blitz manages to rise above the inane, non-constructive retardation of the oi scene.

Dr Feelgood - She Does It Right

Dr. Feelgood are a British pub rock band formed in 1971. Hailing from Canvey Island, Essex, the group are best known for early singles such as "She Does It Right", "Roxette", "Back in the Night" and "Milk and Alcohol" . The group's original distinctively British R&B sound was centred on Wilko Johnson's choppy guitar style. Along with Johnson, the original band line-up included singer Lee Brilleaux and the rhythm section of John B. Sparks, known as "Sparko", on bass guitar and John Martin, known as "The Big Figure", on drums.

The Scientists - Last Night

The Scientists are an influential post-punk band from Perth, Australia, led by Kim Salmon, initially known as the Exterminators and then the Invaders. The band had two primary incarnations: the Perth-based punk band of the late 1970s and the Sydney/London-based swamp rock band of the 1980s. The Scientists were much more influential than their minimal commercial success would indicate, lending their influence to artists such as Mudhoney and New York City's downtown indie scene of the early 1990s.

Bad Sports - Inside And Out

Coming out of Texas like a high-intensity twister, Bad Sports play the kind of good, clean punk & roll that the Ramones invented in the mid-'70s and bands have been using as a template ever since. Kings of the Weekend has the usual loud and tight guitars, simple chord progressions, snotty but sweet vocals, and songs about girls, beer, and other teenage issues, but unlike a lesser band that might sound clichéd and reactionary by sticking so close to the established norm, Bad Sports play with enough energy to blast right past any reservations one might have.

Cold Meat - Nice girls

Cold Meat are a punk band from Perth. This is a track called “Nice Girl” from their new single “Pork Sword Fever”, and it has a sound that sits somewhere between Bratmobile and Good Throb. It’s coming out on Helta Skelta in Australia and Static Shock in the UK. Static Shock put out that great TV Crime single last year. Add them to the list of great punk coming out of Australia lately. A lot of the best punk in the states right now seems to be coming out of hardcore, I think in Australia there’s some first wave synth punk sounds like Spotting, and this also is very 70’s sounding to me along with Red Red Krovvy. This new Cold Meat single is slated for a December release, I’ll try and bring some over in Girlsville distro.
